We had a wonderful 2 night and 3 day stay in the Mara and saw so much of wildlife including elephants, lions, chetahs , antelopes , Topee, zebras ,... read more eagles and so much more ! We did 5 game drives over the 2 days there and our driver and guide Ben was excellent in taking us to the right locations. Our visit to Naivasha on day 3 and stay at the Naivasha Simba lodge was breathtaking with Zebras and Antelopes literally outside the room over breakfast . The walking safari at crescent island and the boat ride on lake Naivasha were additional highlights that will leave a lasting memory !
Everything was well organized as planned , Imran went over all the details and made extra sure that we were well taken care of at the tent camps and on our departure back to the airport in the middle of the night .
All in all a great visit and would certainly recommend best camping tours
Safaris company for all your future safari adventures !

Together with Imraan GM of BCTS we have planned this safari trip after our great experience with Best Camping in 2018. Three nights Keekorok with the... read more fabulous Hippo pool, one night at Country Club Lake Naivasha ( as drive from Masai Mara to Amboseli is too long for one day ), one night at Kibo Amboseli and two nights Kilaguni with a terasse with two water pools. Again a fantastic experience with Best Camping. Starting from a very flexible approach for payment ( due to COVID PCR test requirement), friendly pick up at NBO airport, extreme knowledgable enjoyable driver/guide Marco, who supported the 5 of us with all our requests, the spacious Land Cruiser. All days we had fantastic experiences with thousands and thousands of brilliant photos and hours of video films. This trip’s highlights were the kill of 3 Cheetah brothers and a clear day of Mount Kilimanjaro. But also the countless number of beautiful birds, elefants, zebra’s, lions, buffalos, giraffes etc etc.
And let’s not forget all the most friendly staff in all lodges. People, who had an extremely though times during COVID times. They welcomed us with mouth masks with great enthusiasm. They all made our trip as the most memorable one. Thanks to Imraan, his supporting team, Marco and the lodges staff. Ashanti Sana!

The safari driver was excellent and it was a pleasure to deal with the owner Imraan. His attention to details in preparing the lodge and safari vehicle was first class.

14 Jan 2020-3 Feb 2020 was my first adventure to Kenya. Carolyn (from United States who used Best Camping before) worked with owner Imraan to create a customized experience for... read more 14 travelers. Thomas greeted us (most of us did not know each other at that time) at the airport in Nairobi before taking us to the hotel. Imraan visited us at the hotel to welcome us, chat and answer questions. Each of two safari vehicles carried 7 of us with Richard & John as our capable drivers/guides. They were knowledgeable, friendly and safe drivers. They also loaded/unloaded our duffels/luggage from the vehicles when we arrived at or departed from the lodges/camps. We were at various locations (including Tsavo West Nat’l Park, Amboseli Nat’l Park, Samburu Nat’l Park, Maasai Mara Nat’l Reserve, Lake Naivasha), going on game drives, many times twice a day. To see so many different animals and birds plus scenery upfront and so close is more than awesome - never quite knew what nature would open to our eyes and senses. The lodges & camps were mostly good-sized and comfortable with delicious food with good choices for vegetarians and vegans. Imraan had no problem addressing matters quickly and efficiently. Fortunately, with this experience well planned, very few noticeable snafus. Imraan was in contact with leader Carolyn as well as Richard & John to make sure things were in order. Best Camping wants each person to have a memorable experience. I might add that it is somewhat a family affair. His children have taken the initiative to bag small seedling balls that are distributed to each of the travelers. We toss the balls during game drives in an attempt to revitalize landscape. Refreshing to see family involved in the business while caring for the environment. Since Carolyn had experience from her return visits, she had ideas of accommodations, distance considerations and such. She and Imraan worked out a wonderful itinerary for the 14 of us. Please seriously consider Best Camping Tours & Safaris (Nairobi) for a pre-set itinerary or a customized experience. He and his staff work hard to provide a safe, memorable, educational and fun experience. That is why I had planned to return January – February 2021. Alas, pandemic altered those plans. But I will write a review of my recent return to Kenya 20 Jan 2022-13 Feb 2022.

I've just returned to the US after a 3 week custom safari by BCTS. They never disappoint. This is the third adventure since January of 2020. Every... read more time the itinerary is as planned with few changes due to weather, pricing, etc. Our driver was Ben Gicharu. He is our guy. He is very knowledgeable about all the parks, wildlife, etc. Hopefully he will be with us again in Jan. 2023 as I have another group going over to Kenya at that time. I have made a few changes to the itinerary myself but I know the BCTS will adjust accordingly. Thanks Imraan and Ben. Keep up the great work.

Imraan came to my hotel to hear what I wanted to gain out of my safari and he really hit the nail on the head. Ben (my driver/guide) was on... read more time to pick me up for my safari, he was courteous and we ended up having the most interesting conversations about Kenya all throughout my safari trip!
My accommodation was fantasitc, my luxury tent had everything I wanted with the perfect forest view. The food was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
We saw the MOST AMAZING animals on our safaris, and Ben was dedicated to helping me take the perfect picture of each animal. It was really wonderful having a patient guide who really went out of his way to make sure I was happy.
In Lake Naivasha when I was too tired for the hike, Ben started finding out what other activities we could do in the area. He wanted to make sure I had the best experience possible in Lake Naivasha as well.
If I had more time I would have extended my safari trip!
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Best Camping Tours & Safari's for your safari in Kenya, they make sure that you fall in love with Kenya.

We did 4 days/3 nights Masai Mara and we stayed in the Keekorok lodge. Again an excellent safari by Best Camping Tours & Safaris. Well-organised, safe, skilled, and very knowledgeable.... read more Our choice already since 1990, this time was our fifth safari with Best Camping. Always very satisfactory. Our guide spotted some black rhino's on our tour in Masai Mara, and he got the information where to find a leopard via other guides. And of course we had our share of lions, cheetahs, elephants and many other mammals and birds, plus the beautiful scenery of Masai Mara.
