I visited in July 2016
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 was extremely responsive, flexible, friendly & communicative despite the time zone difference.
We ended up with a 7-night flying safari covering multiple parks in Kenya & Tanzania flying between the parks as opposed to driving. With Anne I worked out a balanced diverse itinerary that included lodges of different sizes, a luxury tented option in the Masai Mara conservancy, as well as large and small national parks.
The lodging options as well as drivers/guides suggested by Anne turned out to be excellent. Our Kenya-based driver stayed with us for 4 nights throughout the Kenya portion. As a guide he was very reliable, knowledgeable & friendly. The Tanzania driver was provided by our lodge. That guide was super excellent because he knew the land well and could go off road since private conservancies don't need to follow public park rules.
I could go on about the great experience we had but the critical thing is this. We had to pay up front for the entire safari so you need to have some trust even after doing a lot of due diligence. Anne and the Amazing Safaris team made us feel secure, planned a great trip, took care of attention to detail before AND during the trip, had great follow through and all at a relatively good price.
I would highly recommend Amazing Memory Safaris to plan your African safari! I would recommend them over non Africa based operators because they provide personal service in Nairobi and can assist with travel logistics locally while in Africa.
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 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...
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,...
