Imraan helped me book this safari on pretty short notice and was very responsive and coordinated the whole experience very well. Very good value for money!

I found Best Camping Tours & Safaris by browsing through the net, and after having checked their website I emailed a first bunch of questions I had for our family... read more trip to Kenya. Right the next morning I not only had my answers but also very good recommendations and a lot more information on traveling in Kenya.
There are many tour operators, but Imraan's 5-star service, friendliness and reliability make all the difference and made the tour 11a to Mt. Kenya, Samburu NP, Lake Naivasha and Masai Mara for our family a once in a lifetime experience.
What can I say? Our driver Chris not only took us to see the big 5, but also cheetahs, jackals, hyena, crocodiles, hippos, gerenuks etc etc. We also experienced the crossing of the Wildebeests and Zebras at the Mara river, the heartbreaking moment a crocodile attacked one of the wildebeests, thousands of wildebeest & zebras migrating. We also had picknick lunches in Masai Mara, another highlight for all of us, especially our kids.
We especially recommend the Simba Lodge in Samburu National Reserve, where you can see elephants from the restaurant, the pool or your balcony. The Olgatuni Camp in Masai Mara was amazing as well: In the middle of the National Park, with a pride of lions and a big hippo family as neighbors, with no fences but Masai People who watch out for you when dining outside under the trees... just wow. In addition to the 11a tour Imraan arranged a balloon flight over Masai Mara - for all of us the ultimate experience.
Imraan: Thanks again a million for your time, your help, your organisation. You put your heart into this, and that makes it so special!

I have used Best Camping for over 10 years and have been delighted with the service that Imraan and his team offer. The 4x4s are very comfortable and the drivers... read more have a huge knowledge of Kenya wildlife and the national parks. Tours are very client focussed with the main aim being.finding the game! I am not exaggerating when I say I have visited the mara with Best Camping 11 times and have seen lions and cheetah on every occasion. Our leopard sightings are increasing too, due to the excellent tutelage of the drivers. Imraan has close connections with a number of lodged and camps, our latest one last week was Tipilikwani camp, which I have also reviewed on this site.

It is a matter of anxiety and excitement anytime we plan for a vacation in an unknown place. With an early plan we contacted Mr Imran and could develop... read more a rapport and trust with him, quickly. With his advise and help, we customized this package to suit our priorities. And Imran's quote was quite reasonable compared to the rest of the offers we received during our planning phase.
The small tips he gave us were invaluable, such as the clothing requirements, taking malaria preventives, mosquito repellents, and of the the most his advise to carry a small flash light individually with everybody proved so useful.
His team member came to Nairobi airport and dropped us in our hotel. In the evening, he personally visited us and briefed and summarized the tour and camping plan in detail and talked about our guide and driver for the next eight days. Our guide , Paul had been very friendly, professional and through out shared our excitement in spotting the wildlife activities as if he was seeing them for the first time, like us ! He kept the time and we completely trusted his networking with other drivers and guides to prioritize, optimize and rush to the active spots without fail. That proved to be very useful in ensuring we didn't miss anything exciting in the wild reserve each and every day. Paul had patience and he took us to a few curio shops enroute for the sake of it (!) before taking us to the best one, where we could buy a lot lovable animal figurines of very high craftmanship. Buffello Curio shop's collection was amazing. We wanted to take a full truck load to India!!!
We thank Imran, Paul and Thomas for the making our long awaited and always dreamt African Safari a memorable event. Imran was available over cell phone and made it a point to contact us and talked to us while we were on the tour.
We can very well say, towards the end we developed a long lasting friendship with Imran and Paul.

We had a lovely tour in 4 parks. Every park is unique. Imraan organized everything well, and took good care of us. The driver was amazing: took us where we... read more wanted. We saw the wildebeest trek and even a crocodile taking one. We visited a masai village which was interesting. We did a bike tour in hells gate. And we did a boat tour on lake navasha: which was amazing. Lodges were great ( some superior, some more simplified, but all clean, safe and good breakfast). When we come back, i would ask Best Camping & safari’s again. Thanks Imraan for your help
