What to expect
  • Day 1: Nairobi - Amboseli National Park (L, D) You will be picked up from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or your hotel in Nairobi. Then you will depart for Amboseli National Park (230 km) arriving in time for check-in and lunch at 13:00. Freshen up in your room or soak in the fabulously constructed swimming pool overlooking the snow capped Mt. Kilimanjaro. You will have an introductory late afternoon game drive at app 15:30 in the park with a perfect view of Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. Against this magnificent backdrop roam vast herds of elephant accompanied by a kaleidoscope of other fabulous beasts like lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, hippo, and wildebeest to name but a few. This is one the most soul-searing views in Africa. Dinner and overnight will be at the camp / lodge. Accommodation based on tour option chosen at time of booking. Day 2: Amboseli National Park - Nairobi / Namanga (B) An early morning game drive (app at 06:30 am) allows you to become better acquainted with Amboseli and its wildlife. Wherever you travel within the park you will remain under the watchful gaze of the imposing Mount Kilimanjaro. The vast herds of elephants for which Amboseli is known, seem dwarfed by comparison. We exit Amboseli National Park and proceed to the lodge for breakfast and check-out (till 10:00 am).  You will have 2 hrs for optional activities such as a visit of maasai community.  Note gratuities are given to the Maasai when you visit their village. Between 10am and 12pm we say good-bye to Amboseli and proceed to the place you need. You can be dropped off either - at your hotel in Nairobi - at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport - at Namanga border control (extra cost 60 USD p/p) for the shuttle bus to Tanzania

If you're in Kenya, I advise you to make this apart of your itinerary asap. This experience was one of the most beautiful and amazing tours I've been on in a while. Our safari guide by the name of Joseph was helpful and very knowledgeable throughout the journey. He knew exactly where and when to go to see all the animals of Africa, without him we would've been clueless. From the animals to the views especially of Mt. Kilimanjaro was breathtaking and something i recommend all travelers to do. Thank you

This trip to Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, and Lake Naivasha, and Maasai Mara was worth of every penny I spent. I was always curious about the deadly big cats and told Africa Adventure people during my initial conversations before booking. Keeping that in mind they suggested me this 7-day trip and to be honest I was not expecting to meet such a large number of animals including the lions and other big cats. Watching lions crossing our path so closely was enough to give me Goosebumps. Can’t thank enough to Morris (my driver guide) to make this trip so mesmerizing for me. It’s truly an unforgettable trip for me. Apart from the game drive, the service was excellent.

I found Bencia Africa Adventure Company over the internet. Being a solo traveller I would say I am over choosy. Before talking to the people at Bencia Africa Adventure, I contacted more than 8 safari companies that are operating in Kenya. Amboseli and Maasai Mara were on my bucket list and unfortunately, I was not able to find any of the companies to be completely trustable for a solo traveller like me. After talking to the people at Africa Adventure, I was sure “YES, IT’S IS THE ONE”.
The trip was much more than I expected. The Africa Adventure people made it exceptionally adventurous just I wanted. Morris was my guide as well driver throughout my trip and I am so surprised with his knowledge about the places we visited. That was stunning!! He always had some story and some information to share with me at every step. I am definitely coming back to Kenya soon.

I chose this agency as, among those with good rating, was slightly cheaper. Bad mistake. I went on an two day Amboseli tour from Nairobi with them.
Below the issues I faced (I wish I had seen a honest review like this before booking):
On day one the guide arrived with 40 minutes delay for the pickup, without alerting in advance about the delay, without apologizing nor giving explanations.
I had paid for a private tour, instead there was also another person, but this was not an issue (just annoying that you pay for a private tour and they lie on the fact that it will only be you). Despite the delay in picking me up, instead of departing after picking up the other passenger, he brought us to their offices, as they were trying to sell the other passenger a tour to Uganda. Result: an hour sitting at their office before being finally able to leave.
They charged more than previously indicated with hidden charges ("commission fees").
Once finally arrived in the park, with a 2-hour delay compared to schedule, the guide managed to put a wheel in a hole, so we had wait for more experiences drivers from other agencies to come rescue us. After that he brought us to the wrong lodge, i had to show him the printed email exchange with the agency to sort it out, other 30 minutes wasted. We bought our entrance pass for the park at 4pm! Of course, no time to enjoy the lodge (pool etc) as we were already behind schedule for the afternoon safari.
The guide was a driver rather than a guide, did not explain anything, zero interaction. Also, he was constantly try to reduce the safari time compared to what was agreed, again I had to show him the printed itinerary. On day 2 he also brought us basically for the whole safari in an area where no other cars where (for a reason!), with zero animals. By the way, on the highway from Nairobi and back he was often talking in his phone while driving..
I hope this is useful to other fellow travellers, stay away from this agency!

This was a truly memorable experience. It's a long drive from Nairobi so you'd definitely want to stay at least one night near or in the park. I stayed at AA Lodge which was very nice and empty in November. Having a vehicle all to yourself means you can stop to watch specific animals as long as you like and you have pole position for photographs. I was very lucky to have Tony as my driver/guide who was amazing - he is very knowledgeable about the animals and could identify all the birds we saw. He was also really good company and went the extra mile to make sure the trip was the best it could possibly be. The only thing he couldn't do was arrange for the clouds covering Kilimanjaro to clear - be warned not to expect to see the top of the mountain as it's very often completely covered. I caught a glimpse of it for a few seconds whilst visiting a Masai village next to the park. This was an interesting additional excursion that Tony arranged for me, but do beware of their craft market which they insist you look at after your tour of their village and where they can easily fleece unwary tourists with their drawing in the dirt negotiating. Highly recommend you take this trip with Perfect Wilderness.

Our group of 8 throughly enjoyed our 2 day, 1 night luxury Safari. We aren’t into real camping so we were happy to find this option to stay at Ol Tukai Lodge. The tour was well organized and accommodations were 5 stars. Our safari was in a heavy duty Jeep-like vehicle with pop up top. It was much better than some of the other vehicles we saw on the road. It came with free WiFi and electrical outlets for charging, which was greatly appreciated. They accommodated every request and we plan to book this tour for our clients in the future. It was very easy to communicate and they responded quickly to all my questions. Thanks Bencia Africa Adventures & Safaris!!! You guys rock! Can’t wait to do this again!
