Good prices, fantastic safari, and excellent service

Written on: September 15, 2014   |   I visited in July 2014 I went on a budget safari with Big Time in July and I have already recommended the company to all my colleagues in Kenya! I went on the four day budget safari to Maasai Mara/Lake Nakuru. Saw pretty much everything there is to see, and on the third day heading towards Nakuru, we stopped for a fun boat tour of Lake Naivasha (extra cost Ksh1500). You get your money's worth from the budget camps and hotels - very clean with hot water and comfortable beds. Couldn't have asked for anything more at the price I was paying during peak season.

My guide Antony was very experienced and incredibly knowledgable. Antony knows everything there is to know about game and did everything he could to bring us to see the Big 5. We saw tons of lions, elephants, rhinos, and a cheetah. He worked hard, solved minor logistical problems that came up, and managed our time effectively. Most importantly he was a safe driver over the long distances. Ask for him if you go on a safari with Big Time!

Finally, the service from the Big Time office in Nairobi was excellent. I had already been in Nairobi before booking, but full transportation was provided to and from my hostel, and I was even offered transportation back to the airport. I have to personally thank David at the office for dealing with everything that i asked for and making my booking process so smooth! I recommend Big Time to anyone looking for a safari in Kenya.

It was really nice experience with Big Time Safaris at Masai Mara.

The undisturbed nature and the abundance of wildlife amazed me.

The hospitality and professionalism of the tour operators has also added more life to thevvoyage. It was a worthy visit to Kenya and Masai Mara. read more

I visited Masai Mara 3 days and I was so excited! There were nice lodges, nice staff, nice guide, nice food and many cute animals!
I was worried at first because I joined a safari alone. But I could make very nice friends there.
Everything was good for me! Thank you. read more

I visited Masai Mara with my friends during first week of December 14. The tour was very well organised by Big Time Safaris. The tour manager Mr David is a very friendly and professional person.

Thanks to Big Time Safaris for making our tour a memorable one. Our trip was worry free and smooth. Everything went smoothly and we enjoyed the tour. Guide was enthusiastic and took all the initiative to show us as much wild life as possible. Only thing I regret after the tour is that I should have increased the tour to 5 days and include Lake Nakura to see rhino a... read more

I got the tour booked through David Safari.
He arranged pickup and accommodation at Nairobi before the move to Masai Mara next day. We were six passengers in a comfortable vehicle with independent seats. That gave privacy. Jackson, our driver, and guide was experienced resulting in us having a great experience at game res where we saw big four and lifetime chance ... read more

The trip has been wonderful. David is an extreme coordinator and has been very cooperative. They have taken extra efforts to make our stay and the trip wonderful. It was an amazing experience
Spotting animal is a matter of luck irrespective how big the safari may be. Big Time Safaris has made efforts to be lucky.

Let me first take this opportunity to congratulate David for organising an exemplary 3 day tour of Masai Mara for me in the month of August. Providing the most economical all inclusive tour with a prompt customer support is something which is not easy to find in this part of the world. But trust me when I say that I was pleasantly surprised.

We recently went a 10-day safari throughout Kenya and Tanzania with Big Time Safari Ltd. We had the most amazing time. From Day 1, the staff helped us create the perfect tour package to cover everything we wanted to, and maintained very quick/efficient communication leading up to our arrival.

My trip to Masai Mara was like a dream come true.
David my contact and tour organiser was more of a friend than just a tour operator.
I would recommend everyone interested in seeing wild through their naked eyes and to have an experience of living in wild to do this Masai Trip..:) read more
