“First class all round”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

10 of us in two vehicles with Ben and Harry - what do those guys not know, and how do their eyes pick things up when it seems as if nothing is there? This was well organised, knowledgeably planned and executed. Lion Trail Safaris have to be first on the list!

“With Ben and Henry of Lion Trails Safaris”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Ben and Henry picked us up (a group of 10) at Nakuru Bus Stn, and took us in 2 vehicles on 2 safaris in Lake Nakuru National Park, each of 3 hrs.+, punctuated by an overnight stay at the Lion Hill Lodge. Henry knew everything there was to know about the wildlife, volunteered info and was able to respond to all the questions we threw at him. He spent time at sights we liked, and wasn't impatient to move us on if we were still enjoying something particular, but on the other hand was ready to move on as we dictated. He was a careful driver, and we felt confident in his hands.
He gave us a fantastic experience in the park, carted the luggage about, provided water when we needed it, and did a really good job. The other half of our group reported well of Ben, too. We saw 4 of the big five ( there are no elephants in the park ) plus lots more, and I thoroughly recommend Lion Trails Safaris, and would use them again, if I were lucky enough to go to Kenya again!

“What a great Lake Nakuru Safari”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

We did 2 safaris at Lake Nakuru as part of our R&R and Bernard arranged it all and it went so smoothly. Ben and Henry our two drivers were extreamly knowledgable and we saw the 4 big 5 that reside in the park. Absolutely fantastic! They knew where to go to and we had a 24 hours to remember and loads of photographs to sort through. I will be going back to Kenya and I will be asking Bernard to organise another safari for me again, probably at Amboselli and the Masi Mara.

“Great safari at Lake Nakuru with Lion Trails Safaris”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We are back from our visit to Lake Nakuru and it was excellent! We booked the tour on the company's website, and the same day we got a call back from the manager. He explained everything very clearly and the day after, he came to our hotel to give us some brochures and schedule/advices in preparation for the safari. Everything went according to plans and our driver/guide was great. He picked us up from our hotel in Nairobi, at the scheduled time and was very professional. He gave us a lot of information along the road about animals and cultural things in general. He made lots of different stops to let us enjoy the view of the lake and animals. We took a lot of pictures and saw a wide range of animals. The bus was very comfortable and the place where we had lunch was amazing (Sarova hotel). The staff at the restaurant was very welcoming and the food was very good, with a lot of options.

The tour was very well-organized and we felt we certainly got our money's worth. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
