The accomodation and the other groupmembers were very nice. Also the Full Day Game Drive was wonderful. Visiting the Masai Village was also very interesting. It was not as touristic as I thought, but quite authentical. We had a very good driver.
The first thing was, that the drivre showed up 1 1/2 hours later, so that we lost this time on the first day for our Game Drive. He supposed to pick me up at 10. Also the program didn't make very much sense. I don't know why we didn't met at 7 in the morning or something so we could have made a half day Game Drive at the first day and not just 2 hours in the evening. 80$ entrance fee for 2 hours is way too high. But of course Muzungus are all rich, and don't care about money. The second thing was that the driver didn't stopp for birds or stopped too late so that they flew away. Although the driver had some knowledge about the animals, we mostly had to ask for more details. He didn't really seem to be a wildlife enthusiast. Also the third day we stayed in the park for about 3 hours. That is still too less. I think next time I will organize the safari by myselfe. Because if I have to pay 80$, I want to stay in the park the whole day. Furthermore everybody told us something else where the money goes to. It is easier to pay so much money when you know where it goes to and that the money is needed to run a park like this. The same with Nakuru. 60$ for a park of that size is really much. But if you explain to me, that you need the money for protecting for example the rhinos 24/7 or something else, it is okay for me. So there are a lot of things which should be improved..

First time to Kenya but not the last. Thank you Magdalena and Anthony of BigMac Safaris for making my first safari to the game Parks of Kenya an unforgettable experience. Born in South Africa and having experienced many safaris in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Namibia, I have finally achieved a lifelong bucket list - the wildebeest migration and the flamingos. My choice of lodges were excellent, with good accommodation and good food. Anthony came to meet us at the airport and seeing his friendly face immediately put me at ease. We visited the Masaai Mara, wildebeest migration, Lake Nakuru, flamingos, Samburu, samburu 5, Ol Pejeta rhinos and chimps, and Ambeseli Mount Kilimanjaro, even managed to visit Masaai and Samburu villages to experience their hospitality and culture. The wildlife was spectacular - lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, zebras, wildebeest, buffalo. Even saw a serval. Thank you Anthony as you made my trip so memorable. I could even charge our devices in the 4 x 4 and listen to my iPod music. You were always aware that there were others in the vehicle and your driving through the heavy traffic from time to time was another example of your skills. I highly recommend this wildlife company with excellent services. Can’t wait to see you all again.
BigMac runs a professional and enjoyable safari. I went on the three-day wildebeest migration safari in the Masai Mara. Anthony, our driver, went out of his way to give us the best photographic opportunities. We got close to a leopard, saw several cheetahs atop a photographer's van, and drove alongside herds of migrating zebras - and were often among the first companies to reach the scene. In addition to the usual lions, elephants and giraffes, the above shots really exceeded my expectations. Given that I booked the budget option, the lodging was comfortable and the food decent. When one member of my group complained the first night about the bathroom, BigMac rebooked us into a different camp for the second night. They were attentive to our needs. I highly recommend them to anyone going on a Masai Mara safari.
