An amazing adventure with Amazing Memories Safaris

I visited in January 2016
I traveled to Kenya in January 2016 with Amazing Memories Safaris. I was a senior citizen traveling with my two sons.
We were met at the airport and lodged in a very nice hotel in Nairobi, The Eka Hotel. The security was visible and everyone was welcoming and pleasant. The next week was spent traveling with a guide/driver, Joseph, who was extremely informative, courteous, attentive to all of our needs, and always let us know about our next day's agenda.
We were really well taken care of. We stayed at Masai Mara Sopa Lodge, Lake Nakuru Lodge, and Amboseli Sopa Lodge. The staff at each place, including restaurant staff, reception, and security, were friendly and accommodating, service was excellent. The lodges were perfect...pools, gardens, wildlife, and wonderful views. We felt very safe everywhere we went. The wildlife we saw in the game parks was a lifetime dream. There were giraffes, zebras, hippos, black and white rhinos, lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, cape buffalo and lots of different birds and gazelles. We went on a beautiful boat trip and visited a Masai village. At one point during the trip at Amboseli, I had an eye irritation and Joseph, the guide, took me to a nearby lodge for medical attention which cleared everything up in hours.
Back in Nairobi, Amazing Memories Safaris hired a guide for us to take us around the city as we had a twelve hour wait for our flight. Chege was very friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to excellent restaurants and also to the Karen Blixen Museum and the giraffe park. We were very well taken care of. We learned a lot from both guides about Kenyan wildlife and also about the people and their culture. We would return in a heartbeat!
It was an amazing trip, a dream come true organized by Amazing Memories.
Traveling to Kenya is not new to me. This trip in March 2017 was my 7th visit. When trying a new trip operator, I have typically put them under the microscope. For the last 3 trips, I traveled with All Seasons Safaris. My first trip went well so I traveled with them the next 2 trips. All went well with only a couple of minor issues revolving around the mPesa s...
I first contacted Amazing Memories Safaris via e-mail and Anne from the very beginning was very responsive and accommodating to our needs.
We were a group of 10 friends traveling. We did a road-trip from Nairobi to Watamu at the Kenyan Coast, stopping to Naivasha, Masai Mara , Amboseli and Tsavo West on the way to Watamu and to Tsavo East on the way back. We cov...
I started interviewing tour operators in January and chose Amazing Memory Safaris based on their level of communication, pricing, as well as feedback from past clients. I started planning the trip with Anne in February. Amazing Memory Safaris has a number of package tours but I chose to customize the trip based on our criteria. Throughout the entire process Anne wa...
I went on a 8-day safari trip to Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, and Lake Naivasha recently (March 2016). I have nothing but praises to extend to the Amazing Memories Safaris company staff who has been instrumental in making the trip a memorable one.
Many thanks and gratitude to the following folks which I have had the honor and pleasure to interact and/or meet before a...
