My girlfriend and I booked a 6-day Safari with Meektrails. We have first been picked up at the airport (at 4am in the morning) and directly began a program which was designed to perfectly fit our demands and interests. Our driver James was structured, well-prepared, punctual, a safe driver, a competent safari guide and overall a just very nice guy, who we got along with very well (despite him being a Manchester United supporter). We were able to see all members of the Big 5 multiple times and James showed us countless animals or beautiful spots within the country. Our accomodations have been very clean and sometimes even offered unexpected luxury. In general our expectations were constantly exceeded in terms of the outstanding organization, the cleanliness, the variety of the program, the friendliness of the people, the communication with Meektrails.
I cannot think of any better organization to plan your safari with and would highly recommend to do it with Meektrails. And just to add a personal note, I think the price should be much higher for what has been delivered.

From the beginning Daniel has been extremely helpful. Helped me out from a tricky situation. Our tour guide James was extremely friendly. He took us close to wildful in a rather composed, unhurried manner. Resorts at amboseli and masai mara was excellent. Food was good. Big thumbs up to team meektrails

Our Safari trip with Meektrails Safari was no less as an one-of a lifetime experience! We were 6 days on the road (Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivaishi and Masai Mara) and we just can`t decide which park was the best - all of them were just excellent and worth visiting them. Not only national parks and nature in Kenya were great - we also enjoyed the organisation of this - exclusive! - safari a lot. We got nice lodges and everything was taken care of.
But what - or rather who - made this experience so very special was our absolute wonderful guide, Anthony! He was absolutely the best, thanks to him we saw as many animals as possible (big five and even more!), he spotted them as first and made great explanations -his knowledge about animals, nature and Kenya is so admirable!
But what is most important, is how great person he is - so very kind and thoughtful. He will remain in the hearts`of our family (our 3-year old daughter, my husband and me) forever and we hope to meet again one day!
Thank You a lot Anthony and Meektrails!

We booked a 8 day safari trip with Meektrails. They were quite flexible in the planning and dates of the trip. Our trip consisted in the end of proposed safari elements and our own planned hiking activities in Hellsgate and Mount Longonot as well as own booked accomodations. We really enjoyed our trip with Ben. He was quite spontaneous in the every day planning and he really strived to show us the big 5 and other sights. The only critic could be that we would have preferred more time for game drives instead of staying and eating time at the lodge.

Where to start?!!First of all i never knew i needed a private safari until we (accidentally) got one. It is the best thing ever!!!Second of all get you a guide like Joseph, he will make sure you get the most of your trip.

We took a 3 day Masai Mara safari with Meektrails for my birthday week and i just have to say that it was totally worth it. Our guide Joseph was amazing, always patient, always relentless at finding where the animals were during the game drive. Having a private safari means flexibility to adjust the schedule, private vehicle, the experience is fully customized to your preference.

The Accomodation was great, staff was amazing, the place is beautiful and peaceful. We stayed at AA logde which apparently are mid range tented accomodations but surprisingly great quality. Rooms are beautiful and comfortable. It’s a full board package and everything is included in the safari rate.

Overall great value for money, great experience and great people. Would totally recommend and would totally do it again.

P.S: Joseph if you are reading this thank you for everything!Greetings from the Burundian girl from Mount Kenya 🤗

Our 3 day Safari in Kenya was incredible thanks to Meektrails and our guide John! From the second I contacted the company via WhatsApp I had a pleasurable and very simple experience. They were so easy to coordinate with and helped talk us through the different itineraries. I can be very annoying with all my planning questions, but wow they stuck with me and answered ALL my questions quickly and thoroughly! They were also super flexible with our schedule (and trust me, it was complex due to late flights and covid tests). We saw all of the big 5 plus flamingos (my favorite) among many many other animals! John was extremely communicative & knowledgeable and he worked so hard to find us all of the animals and get super close to them. He was also super funny so we enjoyed all of our time in the car. My fiancé and I both agreed that the Safari company is a make or break in terms of your Safari experience and we will 100% attest to this company delivering on everything they promise! They also let us pay for the safari on our terms via their website which we really appreciated in case our schedule changed. Thank you John and meektrails for this magical experience! We will cherish these memories forever!!! Make sure to ask for John as your guide! Note: we did the 3 day trip to Masai Mara and were in a super comfortable pop up van, private tour for the 2 of us. We went to Kenya at the beginning of October 2022

From the day I got in contact with Meektrails Safari, Daniel was an excellent coordinator and he made my planning process, which can be complicated at times, so easy. I started my conversations with Daniel months in advance and he was there every step of the way. Always willing to make changes where needed to fit what were looking for and always on top of answering emails. It was very easy to communicate with him. Once we landed in Nairobi, Peter (our guide) was there to meet us regardless of the late arrival and right off the bat we were able to tell that Peter would be a great guide. Right before heading out the next morning to get our safari started, we got a chance to meet Daniel in person. It was very nice to get to meet the person I had been talking to for months and he greeted us with a big hug and our first souvenir, our very own safari hat. The hats are lovely and very much appreciated but totally an unexpected gift. From here on out, our safari was one of most amazing experiences we've had and Peter made sure that was the case. Throughout the next 5 days, we visited an animal sanctuary, went on a boat ride in Lake Naivasha, drove around Lake Nakuru, visited a Maasai Mara tribe and spent a day and a half in Maasai Mara National Park where we saw a lot of animals. We got to see the big 5.....lions, rhinos, elephants, buffalos and the leopard was hiding from us a bit but got to see a glimpse of it. Not only did we get to see the big 5 but we saw plenty of giraffes, hypos, zebras, sheetas, wild beasts, impalas, hyenas, foxes, ostrich, monkeys, eagles and much more. Peter was in constant communication with his peers to make sure he heard about any sightings he could rush us to to get the best out of everything around. The language barrier here helped him out a lot because he would keep it a secret and would just rush to wherever they would tell him without telling us a thing to keep it interesting. There was plenty of bouncing in that car but even that was so much fun and he always kept it safe. One of the add ons I asked for was a hot air balloon ride which we did on Day 4 and it was a surprise to my sister. I told Peter on Day 1 it was a surprise to her and he made sure to keep it between us. She did not find out about it until we were literally 20 minutes away from getting in the basket. The whole experience overall was just amazing and I do believe that people can make it or break it and in this case Daniel and Peter were just the best we could have been paired up with. I'm usually not the type to repeat a travel destination but they made me want to do this one again. Thank you both for making this an unforgettable time

Meektrails was the best decision for my safari. Daniel help us customized our safari without any problems and even suggested a few things that help us save time and money. Anthony our guide was awesome and very knowledgeable about the animals. Anthony also help us get better prices at the curio shops.

For your next safari choose Meektrails and ask for Anthony as your guide.

Second time with Meektrails for safari this year - James M the first time, Joseph the second. Honestly could not praise Meektrails more - from Daniel’s communication and organisation of the safari, Phyllis meeting us when setting off, and the excellent, down to the main guys on the ground, guiding us, driving us, answering any requests. Joseph was our guide this time and helped to provide a truly memorable family trip. Thank you all so much - we will continue to travel with you on future safaris.
