“The holiday to Kenya and Zanzibar was better than ever imagined and would highly reccomend! The holiday was for our honeymoon and was made extra special in lots of different ways, which was appreciated!”
Amazing safari experience with SafariBook Evolution! Reviewed Tour: 8 Days Kenya and Tanzania Classic Safari
Ewa Golinska From Germany At
5 - Excellent
“It took us long hours of research and hundreds of emails exchanged before we have decide for tour operator so I would love to give you my opinion and recommendation for SafariBook Evolution. Hope this will help you out!
Firstly, why have we decided to go on Safari with SafariBook Evolution?
Friendly and prompt communication with Steve (owner), flexibility and willingness to meet our needs and kind of gut feeling ;)
Booking process was very easy and at the end we put a trust in Steve and sent 75% of the payment - we were travelling to Zanzibar before and we did not want to carry that much cash.
My 2 friends and I, we went for 9 days safari with following itinerary: Tanzania starting in Arusha - Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara with walk, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Empakai Crater, Kenya - Amboseli with walk. We had amazing guides, I could not wish for better company, we had a lot of fun and I learnt so much about animal, Masai culture and life of African people. In Tanzania our guide was Godlove Goodluck and in Kenya - Onesmus. We had also cook named Alifa - cooking is really his passion and food was tasty. Much better than in any African restaurant we had been :D
Everything was organized and yeah, sure, things did go sideway, as our car got broken, but what I appreciate is how the things were handled and what Steve did to make sure our trip is untouched (new car was sent, meantime rescue car camet to not lose any game drive etc). And to make it up Steve made us amazing surprise. We were flying out of Nairobi at 6 am so he arranged for us home stay at lovely Kenyan family. We had wonderful last night in Africa with his friends. We could not wish for more. Ah, one more great surprise from Steve! We had budget safari with basic accommodation to keep cost as lower as possible, and is like Steve would know us better, he booked for our last 2 nights amazing lodge with swimming pool and view on Kilimanjaro. After diving and 9 days in the car on bumpy roads this was like a dream!
I can honestly recommend SafariBook Evolution, Steve and his team for organization of your Safari. Steve - thank you so much for amazing experience and providing us great guides, this made all difference.”
Great Driver and Game Drive Reviewed Tour: 3 Days 2 nights Masai Mara Budget Safari
Anonymous From USA At
5 - Excellent
“The driver, Robert, was excellent, and helped me out when I had a medical emergency. The game drive was excellent - saw lots of lions, some leopards, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, etc. The only thing we didn't see in fact was the elusive rhino. The lodging was satisfactory, though they made people in my group pair up two to a room (even though some had specifically requested single rooms). Overall, though, a great experience!”
Well organised budget tour to Masai Mara Reviewed Tour: 2 Days Maasai Mara Safari Tour
Gurudas Aras From India At
4 - Very Good
“Positives:1. Well organised trip 2. Picked up from my hotel on request 3. Good driver & guide Mr. Solomon who took efforts to spot animals.4. Good stay arrangement in self contained tent at a Masai Mara camp.
Negatives: 1. It's solely a budget trip with all budget services. Don't expect more. 2. Food throughout the trip was just average.
Advice: Stay for at least 3 days to explore Masai Mara and if you can spend more there are better options who will take you in better vehicles like Land Rover since the road to Masai Mara is horrible for the last 75 kms.”

“We chose this safari and customized it a bit. Across the board it was excellent. I would highly recommend Daniell and Transtrek. I'm very picky and hold companies to high standards. I'm usually disappointed. I researched a trip to Africa for months. Transtrek stood out from the rest. The communication was excellent every question I had was answered thoroughly and promptly. The payment process was easy. The trip from start to finish was smoothless. The vehicle, places, the activities chosen, the lodging and food were great. Tony was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly driver/guide who obviously enjoyed his job. I highly recommend Transtrek.”
Sad safari tour with a dishonest company Reviewed Tour: 4-day Lake Nakuru & Maasai Mara Budget Safari
Ben Mo From France At
2 - Poor
“We planed to spend few days in Kenya and contracted with Spot Kenya Safari for one day in Nakuru et 3 days in Masaï Mara. We gave to Charles and Maurice (Spot Kenya Office in Nairobi) our flight schedules on arrival to be sure it would be OK. And they told us it would be...
When we arrived in Spot Kenya Safari Nairobi Office everything went wrong. What we planed to do couldn't be done anymore. We had to accept a different and less interesting trip. We were very disapointed. The trip we did was less expensive (100USD less) but Spot Kenya Safari never gave us back our money (although they said they did).
So i only have one advice : don't use this dishonest company for your trip in Kenya.

PS : i have any evidence about that sad story.”

Maasai Mara National Reserve - Overview and Facts

Maasai Mara National Reserve was responsible for introducing the world to the concept of safaris. The park covers an area of 1,510 sq. kms. and presents spectacular scenery, breathtaking wildlife and picturesque surroundings at every turn. Maasai Mara loses out on some of its bush vibe due to 290,000 visitors who come here each year, but it always manages to ensure that you have a blast while exploring its jungles, rivers and plains.

From documentary makers and researchers to travel writers and seasoned travelers, it is easy to find all kinds of visitors at Maasai Mara. The vast clear skies, starry nights, majestic savannahs and exotic animals all play their part in making the Mara feel like ‘contemporary Africa’, and the wildebeest migration simply adds to the aura of romance and mystery.

Maasai Mara presents four types of adventures – the Oloololo Escarpment which beautifully rises to form a fascinating plateau; the Ngama Hills and its sandy soil and leafy bushes which are preferred by the rhino; the Central Plains and their rolling grassland and scattered bushes which host most of the game and the Mara Triangle and its acacia woodlands and lush green grasslands famous for its wildebeest populations and home to the Migration phenomenon.

  • Wildlife Rating: 5 stars out of 5
  • Scenery Rating: 5 stars out of 5
  • Bush Vibe: 3 stars out of 5

The Maasai Mara National Reserve has been called the flagship conservation area in Kenya, and its game viewing is considered to be excellent throughout the year. The Mara is one of the best destinations in the country to see the African Big 5 – buffalo, rhino, elephant, leopard and lion – as well as other popular herbivores and carnivores. Home to as many as 2 million animals, it is at the very top when it comes to animal sightings. Some of the animals found here include zebras, buffalos, topis, impalas, elephants, warthogs, impalas, crocodiles, leopards, cheetahs, lions and as many as 450 species of birds.

Game drives are the best thing to do here, but you also have other exciting wildlife adventures in the form of hot air balloon safaris, cultural visits to the nearby Maasai villages, guided walks and the Oloololo Escarpment Trail. This is where you see the Maasai people, whose culture often makes you question your western values.

This is where you see hundreds of predators stalking millions of herbivores who make their annual pilgrimage despite the apparent danger. This is where you fall in love with the wild, its unending mysteries, its gorgeous beauty and non-stop action. This is the Mara.

  • Number of Visitors: 290,000
  • Altitude: 1,500 to 2,180 m

Pros and Cons of Maasai Mara National Reserve

Pros :

  • Home to the Great Migration
  • Breathtaking diversity of animals
  • One of the highest densities of lions on the planet
  • The Maasai culture
  • Accessible through the year
  • Plenty of accommodations to choose from

Cons:

  • Very crowded during peak season
  • Low on bush vibe because of the sheer number of visitors it attracts

Accommodations in Maasai Mara

Maasai Mara is one of the two national parks of Africa that hosts the Great Migration phenomenon and it is also home to the Maasai people and their beautiful culture. It presents a wide range of accommodation options and most lodges maintain excellent relations with the community to allow you to dive into their culture and learn what makes it so special. Luxury travelers don’t need to look beyond Mahali Mzuri, Mara Plains Camp, Bateleur Camp, Rekero Camp and Elephant Pepper Safari. Those searching for something less exorbitant would prefer Porini Lion Camp, Sanctuary Olonana and Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp.

Choosing which part of the Mara to visit can also have an impact on your experience. The northern concessions are considered to be far more private and a majority of the luxury camps and safari suites are located there. The eastern parts are the closest to Nairobi, and the accommodation found here is considerably cheaper.

Best Time to Visit Maasai Mara

The best time to visit the Mara is between the months of July to November, as this is when you get to see the greatest spectacle on the planet – the wildebeest migration. The sheer number of animals who migrate between the Serengeti (Tanzania) and the Mara makes it the most dramatic phenomenon on the planet. To reach the fresh grazing grass, the wildebeest must make a river crossing, risking becoming a feast for the lurking crocodiles, and this is where you get to see the best action. The months of December and January are equally popular as they coincide with the calving season. Visiting during this ‘green season’ gives you a unique opportunity to see herbivores give birth to hundreds of thousands of calves, fawns and foals.

Extend Your Vacation from Maasai Mara

Tourists wanting to extend their vacations have a number of options to choose from. The exotic Seychelles might not be ‘close’, but it still lies in this part of the world. If you have time and still skip out on a trip to Seychelles, you might not be able to forgive yourself for a very long time. For something closer, the following options are perfect.

  • Lamu: Lamu makes you realize what love at first sight really means. It’s magical setting is ideal to rejuvenate your soul after a weary experience in the African jungle and the salty air does its best to treat your skin to some much-needed pampering after being baked under the African sun. Lamu gains its popularity from its historic old town, the best-preserved and oldest Swahili settlement in East Africa. The labyrinth alleys offer glimpses of the local life, beautiful houses made using coral and stone and elaborately carved wooden doors. Lamu was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it often emerges as the highlight for many tourists visiting this part of the continent.
  • Nairobi: You often hear all kinds of things about Nairobi, and yes, most of those things are actually true. Nairobi is a city that forces you to be smart and think twice before making any decision, but it is also a place which introduces you to one of the most beautiful cultures on the planet. As a major powerhouse in this part of the world, Nairobi is as close to western civilization as Africa manages to get and the city is full of restaurants, nightclubs and attractions that warrant a visit.
  • Amboseli National Park: Amboseli National Park is the second-best national park in Kenya. You may not want to visit the second-best national park when you’re already planning to visit the crown jewel, but Amboseli is home to – wait for it – Mt. Kilimanjaro. Clicking pictures of mammoth tuskers with the largest peak in Africa as your background, now that’s something which is usually reserved for those Nat Geo photographers!

How our Travel Expert Service Works
  • 1 We connect you with a hand-picked and qualified travel expert who can match your trip requirements. The advantage of working directly through a travel expert is that you get the best and unfiltered advice from the very beginning.
  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment and Financial Guarantee Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL. All payments are therefore carried out in secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund which gives you a 100% financial guarantee for any money you pay on Bookmundi, even if we went bankrupt (which we we will not!).
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local travel expert. Our role, as your trusted third party, is therefore to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and secure as possible. We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
