“First class in every way”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had 3 separate day trips with Lion Trails for our spare time in Nairobi. We had the same driver/ guide for each of these days, Martin and we would have to say that he was friendly, accommodating to any suggestions that we made and so interesting to talk with. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and passionate about his work and his country.
Nothing was too much trouble for Bernard to arrange and on occasion change at our request. Two of us are from Australia and two from America and all have travelled extensively and have no hesitation in saying that it was an absolute pleasure to travel with Lions Trails.

“a time to remember”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had a wonderful Safari. Martin Kamau, our driver was excellent and he really made the time so special. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Seeing the Wilderbeast charge down to the river and then change their minds and go back to the plains was amazing. Definitely worth a whole day out on safari as we could travel that much further from base.

“Tanzania/Kenya Safari”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Four of us arranged a 11 night safari starting in Tanzania and concluding in Kenya. All could have come unstuck if it were not for Bernard's help in making alternative arrangements following disruption to travel plans because of the Nairobi Airport fire and also tracking down luggage that was subsequently lost
We have used Lion Trails before and they continue to provide great service with great Guides. Ben Gitari excelled himself in the Maasai Mara

“Its no surprise every person rates 5/5!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

As all other posters have said this is just a great little company. It was my first time to Africa and Im someone who likes to have everything organized and all my questions answered. I went back and forth with Bernard over email several months before our safari asking questions etc. Bernard was outstanding at promptly answering my emails as well as always answering all my questions.

We arrived an were picked up on time at the airport and transfered to our hotel in Nairobi. From then on the trip was excellent. Our driver Ben was fantastic with his driving skills, English, friendliness and excellence in spotting animals and educating us on the animals, Africa and the culture.

Everything ran like clockwork with no issues at all and a great experience! I would highly recommend this company for their customer service, competitive prices and excellent guides. Will be booking with them again on the next safari!
