We really enjoyed this safari more than I can describe. Joseph was an excellent guide and travel companion. The staff at Mara Ndovu lodge were all wonderful, especially Miriam. The food was exceptionally great as well. We got to see 4 of the Big 5, as well as 10 billion wildebeest. I’d highly recommend this tour.

Saw ALL Big 5!
This is an amazing tour!! From the lunch, the guide brought us to a really tasty roadside restaurant for lunch that is clean and super tasty food. And the lodge was superb! It was close to the National Park! We saw all the Big 5 and the driver was amazing and focused on having the guests see all of the animals as his goal! This is a once of a lifetime experience I cannot recommend highly enough!

Amazing experience, so-so company
Mar 2021 • Couples
Be aware that this is a “budget-friendly” tour, and you will be transported (from the airport as well as to the Maasai Mara and for all game drives) in an old white van, NOT a 4x4. The van is not the most comfortable and is quite bumpy and noisy to spend so much time in it. (You are pretty much in the vehicle all day every day while on Safari.) Had we realized this was the transportation we would have considered spending a bit more, especially since the vans are more limited than the 4x4 in terms of where you can go in the park. In addition, the first day we were picked up late and did not have the Day 1 experience that was planned for us (no restaurant stop for lunch and no break for refreshments at the lodge) because we were told we had to go straight to the park if we wanted to make it in time for our Day 1 game drive. This meant we had to spend an uncomfortably long time in the van - more than 10 hours! The accommodation (Enkorok - mid range option) was really nice with great service and decent food. However, the packed lunches were pretty much inedible for us. The last day our trip was cut short and we had to leave early due to a Covid lockdown in Nairobi. Some of the interruptions to our trip were the company’s fault and some were not, but throughout everything they were very disorganized and did not take responsibility, leaving us to feel that they didn’t really care about the quality of our experience. After lots of back & forth (during which they never apologized for our inconveniences) Bencia did finally agree to compensate us after our return to Nairobi with a gsm drive in Nairobi Park (which was amazing) and taking us to the giraffe center. This made us feel like we got our money’s worth and we were satisfied with this compensation. Our driver for the Nairobi day was Joseph, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. His company made the day very pleasant and enjoyable. All in all we did have an amazing time on the trip, and the company was okay in the end despite some points not being what we expected.

Masai-Mara trip
Mar 2020
We booked our trip with Viator, which was conducted on place by Perfect Wilderness Tours. The start of our trip delayed, because the company told that they will pick up us at 7:00 am from the hotel, but we waited for almost 2 hours before the taxi driver arrived that to bring us to the place where we moved to our travel vehicle. But all other travel was perfect! We saw many animals on the way to Masai Mara and in the Park, we visited Masai village on the back way. We saw many mammals, birds and reptiles, we have been on the river where the great seasonal migration of mammals passes... The food was good, the camp sites were clean and safe with good accommodation conditions.
Our comments regarding this tour:
- Our driver did not tell us much about wildlife and places, we needed to ask him.
- He stopped in some cases only when we asked, trying to execute the program, in which were "big five", but we were interested to see not only "big five", but also to see other species of animals and plants.
- Many vehicles as we saw often came too close to species such as lions and cheetah disturbing them and their privacy.
- Main roads in park and around are not well maintained. We assume that tourist industry could more care about this.
- Local Masai people live in such miserable conditions, that we assumed firstly that it is kept such for tourists. But anyway, it is ashamed for tourist industry do not support local communities and do not contribute to education, remaining the general traits of local culture.

I together with my other five friends we booked safari with Bencia African Adventure through Alfred three days prior to safari actually everything was well organized,the driver came to pick us on time,the whole safari was full of fun we managed to see the big five...we had a fantastic cook George we really enjoyed the meal. I may recommend Bencia African Adventure as the only company which is pocket friendly interns of the cost, were their service are second to none...

Such a bad experience, don't trust what they say...
Feb 2020 • Couples
t will be a long review, but here you'll have all the details of how it goes with Bencia africa because it's seems a bit tricky to find a good safari agency. We did a safari in Masai Mara with them in january, they sold us 15 hours and 30 minutes of game drive in three days (first evening, then full day, and last one during the last morning). We bought it 280usd (you can find cheaper in other agencies and probably with them also...) for transportation (2 ways from Nairobi), food and tent (like military ones with shower inside). The van was so old it broken down the first day 200 meters after the entrance of the park, so no game drive the first day. The second one the program said "game drive from 8.00am to 6.30pm". At 5.00pm the driver reached the exit gate, we asked why so early, he answered "it's a rule setted by the park"... And the next morning the program said "game drive from 6.30am to 9.30am", we did just one hour and then again the driver tried to explain that we were too late to continue the game drive... The driver doesn't care about the program (and passengers), so we requested the company for something (partial refund or something else) and here start their funny answers. They first answered "the 2 people we shared the van with were happy, so the company cannot make any refund". I replied that we don't care about the feelings of the others in the van, we had a contract and nothing of it was respected. So they answered "our driver made a detour of 40 minutes, so we consider this as a compensation". Then i replied that we never asked for a detour but to be dropped on the way back to Nairobi to take a local bus to naivasha (but the driver brought us to naivasha even if i told him that we'll find a bus). Juste for you to know, public transportation for Naivasha is about 1 dollar from there... So they tried to compensate the 5 hours in the park they stole us with a one dollar drive.
Then we continue to talk with them and finally they said that there will be a refund but we wait and we wait and nothing happen.
We just leave one star for George the cooker who's a really nice person and the only one with honesty in this company.
If you want more informations about our experience, don't hesitate to contact me. I have the screenshots of the WhatsApp conversation as a proof of what i write, and that i don't exagerate/inflate the reality. It's just for you to not make same bad choice than us.
