It was very good and our guide ensures we see the the animals when they were at their best. Out of the Big Five we saw three, Rhinos and its young. Lioness and her cubs. Male Lions playing and Buffalo's enjoying their food up close and other animal species. Will certainly be using and recommend this. tours to friends and colleagues. Thanks for a wonderful safari.

Amazing tour, the Nairobi National Park is incredible, such a wealth of nature and beauty at the doorstep of skyscrapers and railway. Very well managed by the guide Peter, who first drove us around the park and made his best to allow us seeing as much as possible, including a majestic lion. Peter was very knowledgeable and passionate about Kenya, shared a wealth of information on animals, the environment, etc. and drove us extensively around the park to make sure that we saw most of the animals, giving us all the time to capture pics. He then took us to visit the Elephants' Orphanage (another incredible place) and before going to the third and last highlight of the day, the Giraffes' Centre, he allowed us to take our time and rest in a community centre where we could buy coffee, homemade samosa and local handcraft. Overall a great tour, I could see a lot of incredible things, and do everything at my own pace although it was an organised tour. Comfortable car with open roof.

I really enjoyed the trip. Alex is a very experienced driver and guide and managed to get us through Nairobi National Park without getting stuck unlike many other vehicles. We were also very lucky to have some amazing sightings. Unfortunately we arrived a little late at the Elephants but it was still a great experience non the less. I was a little disappointed by the Giraffe Sanctuary as I expected it to be a bit more organized and guided. It was a little overcrowded.
