I had a wonderful weekend safari with Tony from Perfect Wilderness Tours. The value for money was spot on. Once we arrived at AA Amboseli Lodge, lunch was provided, then time out before a late afternoon/early safari. So many elephants! The landscape is something else and to see many animals wandering was great. After dinner, the Masai men came in and performed a show explaining their dances and gave a little insight to their lives. Yes you are invited to 'look' at their crafts they bring in, but that's part of the charm, I didn't mind, they weren't pushy and you could barter well. An early start saw us at the park for 7am and we seriously drove non-stop for over 5hrs. Too many sights to mention, all amazing, but was lucky to see a mum and baby hippo out of the swamp. Sadly no lion sightings but get it can be like a needle in a haystack. I was solo on my tour and Tony was knowledgeable, accommodating with my questions and professional. Definitely recommend!

The trip to Amboseli was wonderful and the guide and driver Nathan from the local Safari Partner was great and knowledgeable. The game drive lasted three hours and I saw elephants (also up close), wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, lions, ostriches, flamingos, cape buffalo, fish eagles, impalas, baboons and a large hippo. All with the beautiful background of Mount Kilimanjaro. The trip started at 6 am when I was picked from the hotel in Westlands, and we started the game drive at 9am. The lunch was great at the Ol Tukai Lodge in Amboseli, with great scenery. The trip back started at 13:30 and arrived at 6pm in Nairobi, also due to ongoing construction works on the roads. Considering the low turnover of tourists due to the current situation, the safaris were not crowded and enjoyeable. Also the director of the local partner was very helpful sending useful information in a timely manner. GetYourGuide was great as always! I strongly recommend this safari in 2021.

Our safari day at Amboseli Park went very well. Our guide Castro quickly got us from Nairobi to Amboseli in around 3.30 hours. He was very precise in his explanations and in answering our questions. We did not have the chance to see Mount Kilimanjaro due to bad weather conditions. But the spectacle of the animals was just as beautiful. We saw giraffes, elephants, hippos, wildebeest, vultures, hyenas, flamingos and antelopes. We had the chance to see a family of 9 lions including the alpha male and 2 baby lions. For lunch, we stopped at Lodge Ol Tukaï and ate a very good buffet meal before heading back on the road for a short game drive towards the exit of the park. Everything was perfect

Getting up early was absolutely not mine and the perceived very high price initially kept my expectations low, but I was convinced by the great driver, the park, Kilimanjaro and the dream lodge with perfect food / service! As a recommendation, I can say for others that an overnight stay in the lodge amidst the animals, i.e. the whole thing as a 2- or 3-day trip, will definitely increase again!

Excellent tour, driver/guide Tony was really helpful. Amazing nature. Saw lots of animals. A bit long drive for a day, but definitely worth it.
