I spent my 50th Birthday doing the 3 Day Masai Mara Safari and the experience was awesome!! John (our tour guy) was the absolute BEST!! John was
Very knowledgeable of the animals and the history of the Safari.. My cousin and I did the tour together and the booking process was great! Jane did a fanatic job making sure we understood what we were paying for
and what we needed as far as entering Kenya.

The Basecamp where we stayed was amazing. The staff was great, and they even arrange to have me a birthday cake sent to my room. Not only that, the staff came and sung Happy Birthday!! What an awesome time my cousin and I had. We got to see 4 out of the Big 5 animals, which was awesome within itself. We got
to Visit the Masai Mara village as well.

I have earlier in 2019 experienced Masai Mara with a group of friends when we spent 2 nights at the Sarova Mara game camp. This time there was a 3-year old baby with us, so we had to schedule the rides outside the camp according to her sleeping schedule, but that also gave me a good excuse to sleep longer and enjoy a late breakfast. But even if we now had a bit less time watching animals, we were very lucky to see almost all the big animals, which was highly appreciated by the 3-year old. We even saw the lions trying to hunt down some zebras. Well, luck was only one part of the formula. The fact that the drivers in Masai Mara are cooperating and exchanging info about animal sightings, combined with the driver's obvious experience and local knowledge of the area ensured a very satisfactory experience for us.
And on our way to and from Masai Mara, our driver/guide was very understanding when we had to stop for the little one to pee every now and then. All in all, it was a good experience, I'm very happy with Shoor Africa. We were also very happy with the performance and attitude of our driver/guide, referred to by the Swahili and English speaking 3-year old as "Uncle Peter Dereva" (Peter the driver).

Our safari trip with Shoor Travel was absolutely amazing. We spent 11 days visiting Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru, Aberdare National Park (stayed at The Ark) and 2 days at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Peter, our driver, was excellent. His ability to spot and find animals was amazing. He was friendly and spoke English well.

Jane, at Shoor, was very professional, responsive and helpful. She answered many questions and customized our trip to meet our wishes.
At Masai Mara (3 days) we saw lions, cheetah and a leopard (along with the thousands of wildebeest, cape buffalo, gazelle, zebra, etc). Also, elephants, giraffe, hyena, jackal, ostrich, baboon and more.

We completed our trip at Ol Pejeta Conservancy – a rhino preservation park. This was amazing.

Peter brought us back to our hotel and helped us get a Covid test for a flight back to the US.

I cannot recommend Shoor Travel more highly. The price was reasonable. The accommodations and food were good and the trip went just as Jane described. We would definitely use them again if/when we return to Kenya.

We were 4 people in a 7-seater Landcruiser taking a 3-day safari in Masai Mara. Shoor Safaris recommended and booked the Sarova Mara inside the park, and it turned out to be a very good choise. The driver/guide (Peter) was superb, while handling the 4-when drive on the bumpy "roads" in Masai Mara, he still managed to spot the animals. So we managed to see all the big ones (as well as the smaller ones) from really close.

We got excellent help from a very patient Jane as we had a lot of different date suggestions for our trip changing back and forth and in the end we could decide and book our trip. Many thanks Jane!
Johnny picked us up and safely drove us to Masai-Mara for our three day trip with stay at Sarova. First game drive was the most fantastic, we saw cheetas, lots of elephants, lions, both male and female, giraff, zebras, buffalos, wild beast, gazelle and a lot more. We were overwhelmed to see all these beautyful animals in their natural habitat. Johnny was very professional and could tell us a lot of the animals.
Second day we had a ful day game drive and we got to see hyenas, hipos and crocodiles and a lot more. Johnny arranged a picknick for lunch and it was great to sit there on the savann eating in the shades of a tree.
Third day we had a morning drive and we got to see a lot more elephants many of them with little calfs and a lion with her catch. After a nice breakfast at Sarova we headed back to Nairobi with Johnny as our driver.
We are glad that we choose Shore Safaris for our trip as we got excellent service from start to end from both Jane and Johnny. Thanks you for making our trip to Masian Mara and Kenya unforgettable.

We had the best time with our guide Josef. He made our trip unforgettable with his authentic humour and his knowledge about the animals and the Masai Mara. Thanks for answering our endless questions :-)
We would definitely recommend Shoor safaris to anyone. They even provided an upgrade from another hotel to Mara Serena lodge as there was a special deal.

Our Kenya safari vacation with Shoor Travel was beyond our expectations. They customized our itinerary and provided a safari vehicle (Toyota Land Cruiser) with an excellent guide/driver – Peter.

Jane, at Shoor Travel, was professional and extremely patient. I sent many, many emails with questions and Jane was always responsive and informative. Ultimately, she customized our itinerary to meet our requirements and the safari went without a hitch.

Peter picked us up at our airport hotel (Four Points) and dropped us off at the end. (He even brought us to the near-by clinic for our pre-flight covid test.) We visited Masai Mara for 3 days. Then Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru, Aberdare National Park (stayed at The Ark) and 2 days at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Masai Mara was beyond our expectations. On the game drives the first day we saw lions, cheetah and a leopard (along with the thousands of wildebeest, cape buffalo, gazelle, zebra, etc). Also, some elephants and giraffe – hyena, jackal, baboon and more. Eventually, we saw all the ‘cats’ up close. We watched a cheetah catch (and eat) a hare and a lioness chase a Zebra. We visited Mara River and saw hippo and Nile crocodiles. We took a balloon safari on the second morning – which was incredible. I can’t wait to show our friends and family the photos and videos.

A day/night at Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and then The Ark provided an opportunity to experience other environments and animals (e.g. rhino, flamingo, giant forest hog) that we did not see at Masai Mara.

The final two days at Ol Pejeta were also beyond our expectations. Many rhino (white and black) and the last two female Northern White Rhino – yes, sadly, they are functionally extinct. Also, we saw chimps and lots of elephants, baboon, jackal, hyena, etc.,. This conservancy exists for the protection of rhino and elephants so it felt good to support their efforts.

As mentioned, our driver/guide (Peter) was absolutely superb. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. His ability to spot and find animals was incredible.

I cannot recommend Shoor Travel more highly. The price was reasonable. The accommodations and food were good and the trip went just as Jane described. We would definitely use them again if/when we return to Kenya.

A couple of recommendations – bring a small flashlight and binoculars (not provided). You don’t need a fancy camera with telephoto lens – we saw all of the ‘big five’ up close. A small camcorder and Iphone was adequate. Umbrellas were available to borrow at all our camps. I did not convert any money to Kenya shillings, i.e., US dollars are fine – bring singles, fives and tens for tips. Credit cards (e.g. visa) are accepted everywhere – even small souvenir shops.

Shoor safaris were so good on our first trip that we had no hesitation in using them again. This time it was just two of us and we went to the Masai Mari with Shoor. We had two nights and three days in the Mara all organised by Shoor. It was brilliant from beginning to end and can’t wait to do another safari with Shoor. The driver Francis picked us up from our location and he was friendly, informative, helpful and an excellent driver. There were only two
of us in our 7 seater safari vehicle which had a pop up roof for game viewings plus a cool box and water. We arrived at our tented camp in time for lunch on the first day. We did four game drives in all and we saw far more animals and birds than we had anticipated. Francis could tell us information about each of the animals and birds. How he spotted half of the animals is a mystery to me. He made sure we saw as many animals as possible during each game drive. He really tried to find a leopard but sadly this time they eluded us. However we saw many lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffe and many other animals too.
I would recommend Shoor as they are efficient, organised and have the best drivers. The accommodation organised by Shoor was excellent and their rates are competitive.

Booked this 3 day Masai Mara safari as a private tour for my wife and I and all I will say is that it was a splendid experience with all arrangements going like clockwork.
We stayed at a tented camp and the location and service were great. Saw plenty of wildlife too including a pride of 6 lions.
Wonderful Safari.

My wife and I just got back from this amazing 3 day adventure in Masai Mara Game Reserve organised by Shoor Safaris. The whole trip from start to end was arranged very well and we both had a great time not least because we managed to see more than the "Big Five" that we had set our sights on at start of the trip. Our Driver Guide Joseph was also very professional and courteous. The camp was also very comfortable.
