    Review by Rishita Nag from Italy

    Absolutely great experience

    PROS Pros: We took the 7 days and 6 nights safari of Masai Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha and Amboseli. Our tour operator 'Absolute holiday safaris' were great from the start. We were picked up on time from the airport and the whole safari experience was great. We saw many animals and all the BIG FIVE. Our guide/driver was very good and knowledgeable and drove safely throughout our trip. Everything was better than expected and would highly recommend the company as well as the safari experience.

    Great activity, less good accomodation

    CONS Cons: The accomodation was not that good though. Tiny tents, bad electricity and cold water. Sometimes the toilet didn't flush.

    PROS Pros: Great location 5 minutes away from the Masai Mara NP. Driver was very good aswell. The accomodation was not that good though. Tiny tents, bad electricity and cold water. Sometimes the toilet didn't flush.

    Friends- safari

    CONS Cons: Lots of driving time from place to place. There is lots of down time at campsites too- be sure to pack playing cards or the like. I would also pack snacks for in between meal times.

    PROS Pros: The driver was informative, personable and funny. The views were outstanding. We saw many animals and got to meet Masai villagers in their village! An amazing experience overall.

    I'd do it everyday if I could.

    PROS Pros: I loved the small group I was fortunate enough to meet. Maasai Mara was absolutely breathtaking and the amount of wildlife we got to see was surreal. Everyone involved in helping me book the trip was incredible and I'd absolutely choose this company again.

    "Just came back from a 7-day safari with "Absolute Holiday Safaris". We went to Maasai-Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha and Amboseli. That was great! I got everything I wanted and even more. In comparison to another safari operators you get the same things for a lower price. Game drives were unforgettable and our guides knew exact spots within the national parks where we can see the animals we were looking for. I recommend adventures with Absolute Holiday Safaris to everyone. You will not regret it! P.S. Thank you David, Patrick, Maxwel, Richard, Joseph for this thrilling experience! You made it 5/5!"

    "We went on a 15-day safari trip from Kenya to Tanzania. We got in touch with Absolute Holiday Safaris a year ago before our trip. They were very helpful with us from the beginning. They personalized a road trip for us. We traveled many kilometers all around these wonderful countries. We stayed in the best lodges, had an unforgettable balloon safari, and went camping. Whatever you request, they would arrange it for us. We had the time of our life and that would not be possible without the support of the good tour guides. Therefore thank you both very much for this! We plan to come back and without a doubt, Absolute Holiday Safaris is our master for another road trip!"
