Reviewed March 3, 2014

Our main worry while negotiating our trip with Bernard from Lion Trails Safaris was this company looked "too good to be true". We have seen no one negative (or even «non-excellent») review here on Tripadvisor. Bernard was very flexible to built the route with respect to all our numerous desires, he gave valuable advises to us, and all the points of our agreement were set very clear.
We were happy to be met by Bernard in Nairobi airport just in time and to see the excellent jeep provided to us. All the lodges we had requested were provided to us. All the details of our agreement were fulfilled by Lion Trails completely and they often did a little more for us.

Our driver-guide Jackson was really cool both in driving and in finding the animals. With him we have never regret we had chosen jeep instead of minivan. We had our very first game drive in Aberdare mountain park in a rainy day. I believe the mountain rainy forest gives not so much chances to see big animals, but Jackson managed to drive us through the washed-out roads and to show us the elephants, buffaloes, and even the leopard. Other days and parks were very exciting as well. And we have seen Jackson is really passionate about the animals by himself.

“Beautiful trip with a 100% reliable organisation”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Already when contacting the organisation, we had a very good feeling. They respond fast, clear answers to our questions. Interesting price offers.
When we arrived and during the whole trip, everything was as agreed: hotels, meals, entrances, all. The hotels we got were a very nice variety, each with someting special. Our guide and driver, Martin, an experienced guide, was ALWAYS there on time (or earlier). Very nice man who knows all about his country and safaris.
When one day we go there with our children, we definitely choose them again.

“Look no further”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Without a doubt the best trip I've ever been on!
The service and personal care by all parties from our driver Martin to the staff at both lake Nakuru and Masai Mara camps was beyond my expectations. I don't want to give too many details as feel it would take the wonder and excitement away from experiencing this trip first hand.
Suffice it to say that of our 4 day safari I would have been more than pleased with the cost if it had been only one day and it just kept getting better as each day/ turn in the road revealed itself.
Cheers to Bernard for his attention to our requests and following up on us at the return .
If ever I am fortunate enough to do a TRIP OF A LIFETIME again LION TRAILS will be the only choice as echoed by all members of our party.
Give yourself a treat and experience it first hand.
Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience :)

“Wonderful safari for the new year!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I Would like to share our feelings about the safari. In general, it went amazingly. We visited many places of interest to see a lot of interesting animals and birds that tested a new kind of providence for us to stay. In Amboseli unfortunately had little animal is not included elephants, which was a lot. Our guide showed us the places where they were especially numerous. Would especially like to thank Jeff, who led after the safari we Amboseli. He took us to places most animals, about which little was known. With him, we saw many interesting things and learned a lot of new things about Tanzania, its flora and fauna. He gave us a very interesting tour of Lake Victoria. There we learned about the customs of the locals.

We certainly advise your company to our friends and relatives. I want to again thank Jeff for the excellent safari! :) :) :)

“Unforgettable safari”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We organised a 4 night 5 day safari to Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and the Masai Mara through Lion Trails Safaris which was truly unforgettable. Bernard provides excellent customer service and tailored our itinerary to our specifications. Martin our driver was extremely knowledgeable, his English is outstanding and he went out of his way to make our trip a once in a lifetime experience. We saw so many animals at such close proximity, including four out of the big five and we were lucky enough to see cheetahs thanks to Martin. The accommodation was excellent for the first 2 nights but the last did not quite live up to expectations and lacked mosquito nets which was our only criticism. Be prepared for the bumpy drive to the Masai Mara but it is well worth it! I would highly recommend using Lion Trails Safaris.
