What people are saying about Nakuru County

Hello, everyone ! I found it very annoying that there was no reasonable rating before my trip and no one knew which safari is the best. In addition, I called several safari in Germany and the prices were about 2000 euros for 5 nights. I am a regular at Getyourguide and so far I have never been disappointed. I can recommend this safari to you. We saw everything and of course the camp was completely normal, but it's ok. It is not worth taking something expensive. The safari is important and the safari was beautiful. You can write to the company and you can also do Amboseli for 2 nights. I've only done Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru; you also go to Naivascha See and you can have lunchtime with hippos;)) in Naivascha Resort. Fantastic !!! Everything fantastically beautiful, really gorgeous. As always, 5 stars for Getyourguide. You can also book a safari from the town, but for foreigners the prices are really high and that is really the best alternative. Really gorgeous.

The discovery of Masai Mara was exceptional. Get ready for a long 6-hour journey from Nairobi with a journey full of twists and turns, but it's clearly worth it for the spectacle that awaits you on arrival. Possession of the places in our camp with buffet before leaving to hunt wild animals. Our guide Joseph allowed us to see almost all the animals of the reserve, and this very closely. In permanent radio contact with his colleagues, we go deep into the reserve to come across the lion, elephants, giraffes, leopards and other breathtaking animals. The stay ends with a visit to a Masai village, a little touristy side that lacks authenticity but nevertheless we learn about their rites and way of life. The meals taken in the camp are generous (buffet) and sleeping surrounded by elephants and hyenas is really exotic. I recommend this safari 100%, if possible with Joseph who is a top guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Lake Nakuru was beautiful and the flamingos and pelicans were impressive, in terms of their numbers and just watching their entertaining behaviours. The other animals in the reserve were an absolute bonus. tue boat ride on Lake Navaisha did not disappoint - we saw 2 different families of hippos, lots of bird life and other wildlife. Steven was an excellent driver and guide and we would love to travel with him again. I would just recommend to take snacks/food and water for the day - we chose to skip a formal lunch break so that we had more time to spend watching the wildlife - so glad that we did!

Great experience, Nakuru is close to Nairobi and I saw so many animals. I went there for flamingos and I was not disappointed! Also the route is very scenic, so worth the 3 hours driving. Stephen was a great driver and guide and Gracepatt a very flexible and responsible agency. Fully recommended!

Super day with every guide (driver, mt guide and boat guide) being extremely knowledgeable about their area. Also taken to a great spot for lunch, would recommend
