What people are saying about Nakuru County

Truly fantastic experience. The Masai Mara is truly a fantastic park. Our guide Charles K. was truly fantastic, he took us to all the areas where we could best see the animals and the breathtaking views that only the Masai Mara can offer. He showed us practically everything and the picnic lunch by the river with the hippos swimming was fantastic. Even the tented camp where we spent the 2 nights isn't bad. We booked from Italy before leaving and the staff at the Exlent Game Nairobi agency promptly answered all our questions and were impeccable, punctual in picking us up at our hotel and returning at the scheduled time. I really recommend this Safari tour and this agency.

My husband and I spent a lovely day with Peter. We left Nairobi with pouring rain, but we found lovely weather in Naivasha and Hell’s gate. Peter was with us every step of the way with a kind attitude and great conversation skills - and a great taste for music. One last thing we appreciated a lot: the safe drive! Recommended!

Great safari experience, you saw all the animals and were able to take good photos up close. Simply a great experience

It's satisfactory but on the other hand there was no elephant, lion or rhino. The Massai part is excellent

Remember to bring sunscreen for the bike ride! Stephen, the chaperone for the day, was excellent.
