A great Safari with Amazing Memories Safaris

Written on: July 14, 2016   |   I visited in June 2016 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 and during my trip in Kenya:

Anne, the reservations manager, right from the start, demonstrated that she is a very hands-on manager who is in personal contact with potential and present clients. She is very responsive towards emails inquiries and client requests and offer insightful suggestions on how to improve itineraries during the planning stage. Beware, however, as emails from Anne come at all hours, so if there’s any constructive criticisms I should raised, it is for her to go to bed a little earlier and get more sleep!

It was also a very nice gesture to have her personally checked-in with me towards the end of the safari trip to ensure that everything went well.

Moses, (driver/guide #1) with a fantastic sense of humor and many years of safari guiding experience under his belt. Moments with him as the driver/guide is never dull, as he will entertain you with many animal facts, as well as … human’s – be sure to ask him the story of Masai warriors with muzungu women. Efficient and with a keen sense of animal identification and detection, game driving with Moses is always a new adventure. Special props to him for locating me a black rhino in the vicinity of Talek Gate at Masai Mara – rare sighting!

Simon (driver/guide #2). One gets the sense of hakuna-matata (no worries) and pole-pole (slow-slow) when having Simon as the driver/guide. Both are desirable qualities, because Simon has incredible amount of patience in indulging in photography opportunities, possesses a wealth of animal knowledge that he happily shares with others, and most importantly, loves the wildlife. Much appreciation to him for bringing me on a boat ride at Lake Naivasha (a stop that was not planned on the original itinerary) for some birds and hippo-viewing within the peaceful, serene surroundings.

Amazing Memories Safaris may be a smaller company compared to the big safari outfitters out there in Nairobi, but its strong work ethics has bought me over: reliability, driver/guides’ acumen for animal detection/identification, and infectious enthusiasm for the wildlife. Based on my experience with Amazing Memories Safaris, I have no hesitation in engaging them again or recommending them to friends/families who are interested in going on a Kenyan safari trip.

Family Safari from July 16th to September 2nd, 2017.

For my wife and I, this was our second safari. This trip, we brought along our daughter (16) and son (12) to see the splendor for themselves. Our vacation consisted of an 8-night deluxe safari with a 5-night beach getaway.

Our quest to find our safari provider began with many hours of reading reviews and... read more

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... read more

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... read more

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... read more

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,... read more
