The type of safari vehicle to be used is a safari minibus (van) or 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser (jeep). All of the vehicles have a rear rack for your luggage which leaves the inside of the vehicle uncluttered for you to move around freely and capture some great photos. Pop-up hatch roofs allow all passengers better game viewing, sightseeing, and photography. Due to a variety of factors, smoking is not permitted in the safari vehicles. However, regular stops can be arranged for you to enjoy your cigarette.

Testimonials

  • Review by Ingasian from Hilversum, The Netherlands

    "We communicated with Bruno safaris way before we arrived in kenya, they were quick to reply to email and offer a great itinerary, fitting to our wishes. When we finally arrived in Nairobi Lawrence was kind enough to come to where we were staying and gave us options of lodges and what we could expect. The following day he picked us up with the driver to make sure that we left on time for the 5 days 4 nights in different lodges. Our driver was George a good driver with lots of knowledge about the animals and birds.We stayed at Sentrim in Amboseli with a nice view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, highly recommend, next stop was Ngulia Lodge which was a disappointment but had lots of birds for those who love birds, nice place to be. Taita Salt lick, a must visit. Lovely lodge with friendly staff. The red elephants in Tsavo east was a plus at Voi Lodge. We saw almost all the big five, George made sure we captured every detail and was always on time and asking if we were comfortable. At the end of the trip he was more than a friend than our driver.Our final destination was at Neptune Hotel, Mombasa.We had a problem with our credit card and Lawrence really helped. He met us in Nairobi and took us to the bank to get clarification of the mistakes made. We have been on safari in kenya with different tour companies but i would recommend Bruno Safaris any time. Lovely staff and budget friendly. We look forward to another safari with them soon...Destination, Samburu!"

    "My colleague and I were in Nairobi on business for a week and had two free days afterwards. We really wanted to see some wildlife, so I contacted Bruno Safaris to see if we could arrange a short trip to Amboseli National Park. They were more than happy to accommodate us and Lawrence was a joy to work with. They even picked us up directly from our accommodation! Our driver and guide, Robinson, was reliable, friendly and easy going. We stayed at the Kibo Safari Camp, which despite it's 'budget' description is actually quite luxurious, with a nice bar, restaurant, and swimming pool, as well as incredible views of Mt. Kilimanjaro (which we were fortunate to see both days of our stay!). The wildlife viewing in Amboseli was absolutely incredible--we saw elephants, giraffes, hippos, multiple antelope species, hyenas, ostrich, wildebeest, buffalo, warthogs, and lions! I am a birder, and was so thrilled by the diversity of species we saw (nearly 50) and Robinson's knowledge of them. From the Kori bustard to the saddle-billed stork, we encountered some truly magnificent birds and I was able to get great photos. Robinson was always happy to stop so I could get a better look, and was helpful in identifying the trickier species. I highly recommend Bruno Safaris and am looking forward to booking with them again next time I am in Kenya. "

    "We had a great experience with Bruno Safaris. After a week of business stay in Nairobi we added on a 2 day, one night safari to Amboseli National Park. The Kibo Camp where we stayed was quoted to be a budget location but turned out to be a pretty luxurious treat for us with bars, restaurant, nice swimming pool with a great view of Kilimanjaro . In two drives through the park we saw a plethora of wildlife (everything from Elephant herds, Giraffes, Hippos, Lions, Buffalos etc etc), in addition to many beautiful birds. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all animals and specifically also birds and did go about and beyond to make our travel experience great. "

    "We arranged our 2 day safari trip to Amboseli with Bruno Safaris by phone. Lowrence was very helpfull and clear about what he could offer us. Even the fact that we arranged the trip just one day up front, the safari trip was arranged perfectly and they even past by our hotel the same day to meet with us and show the van which they were using for the trip."

    "The ride to the park took about 4 hours from Nairobi. Lodge was comfortable and came included with lunch, dinner and breakfast. The trip included 2 long game drives. Our driver Joseph knew the park very well and showed us some amazing places."

    "All together we where very pleased about this trip and I would recommend it if you visit Nairobi. "

  • Review by a traveler from Canal Winchester, Ohio, USA

    "We booked an overnight safari with this company and I was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Our drivers were punctual and friendly, always helping with our bags. They were also very knowledgeable during the safari itself and made the entire experience a fun one! They allowed us to take as much time as we needed with photos and were respectful of our schedule when he needed to hurry a bit. The open-top vans were decently comfortable, though we only had 5 passengers. A large group probably would've felt more crowded. When they dropped us off at the airport, Lawrence even waited with us to make sure we found the correct terminal."

    "Our team booked an overnight safari with Bruno and it was great! Amboseli National Park is beautiful and we saw lots of animals. The accommodations were top notch and the drivers were very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, we didn't see any lions, but maybe next time!"

    "I asked them to organize two one-day tours, one to Lake Nakuru and the other Amboseli from Nairobi. It turned out that I was the only customer both times, but the price remained unchanged (actually, they even offered me discounts). Drivers were professional. One driver constantly contacted other drivers in the park and successfully showed me a lion family and a rhino. The other flexibly changed the lunch place at my request. Although it was the low season, when wildlife is sparse, I enjoyed the tours all the same."
