I have booked with the agendy Masai Mara 3 days and Amboseli 2days as well.
Both tours were very well organizes, including pick up and drop of at the hotel, van was comfortable, driver / guide were very nice guys, although they did not speak a lot about the wildlife.
I personally prefer Amboseli due to the scenery of Kilimanjaro, it is much more green and also accomodation they arranged for us in Kibo luxury tendet camp was an unforgatable experience. Beatifil rooms in African styles with a lot of details, amazing food, nice staff, stanning view to mount Kilimanjaro from the swimming pool but also from the room.
I would highly recommend to boom with them Amboseli in Kibo camp, but also Mara was a good experience.

In July 2016 we visited Kenya and we booked through Mara Gates Safari.This was the most organize trip we ever had.From the time we came out of the airport someone was there to receive us and take care of us.We went to masai mara and other places and all very interesting.Our driver Maurice, so friendly and kind with good vehicle and much experience.He went all out to make us comfortable and make every moment of time interesting and exciting for us.All the places where we stayed was beyond expectation.Our trip was really organized.Most of all the country is clean and citizens very friendly,loving and helpful.What the media and some people saying about Kenya(Africa) is all wrong, you must see for yourself to know. We will refer anyone to go with Mara Gates Safari.Thank you >Kayube,Lazina & Aaminah.

I recently traveled on my holiday to Kenya from Australia and I must say I had the most enjoyable safari experience in my life. I booked a five days safari and the price was great. I even managed to save more money compared to the booking packages that was passed to me by other companies earlier as I was planning for my Safari. The driver guide was great and highly experienced with lots of knowledge of each and every parks I visited. From Lake Nakuru to Masai Mara all through to Amboseli he knew it all. I cant forget the friendly staffs I met from the office to the lodges and the camps. I am planning holiday for my family and definately African Holidays Tours is my preferred choice for them. With this company I know my family will be safe and enjoy their safari in Kenya. Thank you very much Alex for the great job you are doing.

Hi Alex I would like to give you a little feedback regarding the Masaai mara trip I recently did and my experience with your company \ the driver and guide you used

This was my second trip to the Masaai mara having previously used a different company. I have also travelled extensively throughout east and south Africa doing safaris in all the major game parks over the past 13 years.

The vast array of animals we were able to see was superb however the experience was overshadowed by various things.

1. One major annoyance was The guide was constantly on the phone either calling people or people calling him - this was for the whole journey to the Masaai mara and throughout our time on safari also.

2. The radio!!! The radio on constantly was a big hindrance to my experience- although I understand the guides communicate to each other via this to enable guests to see the animals they wish to see however as well as our guide being on his mobile phone he was constantly on this also. Part of the safari experience is guests being able to 'spot' animals and the excitement that comes with that.

3.The radio used to communicate to each other should be turned off or down when by the animals. Again part of the safari experience is being able to hear the animals and nature- none of which was possible due to the constant noise which was incredibly frustrating!!!!

4. On the last day the safari finished at 8.15am and felt myself along with others in the vehicle that the guide wasn't particularly interested that day on doing a game drive and showed no enthusiasm.

5. And lastly the price! And the varying price people are paying for exactly the same game drives and accommodation - myself paying $360 whilst the someone else in my vehicle paid $300

We pay a lot of money to visit these places and get the best safari experience and guides therefore I hope you take these points into consideration as to not spoil anyone else's experiences in the future.
After talking with another group in another vehicle who had booked through different companies it seems there experience was just the same which is a real shame.

stayed in the camp ( lenchada camp)

I reached Nairobi airport at mid night , someone from their team was waiting me out , took me to the office , offered me a hotel but i decided to wait few hours till the driver comes to pick me up to masai mara.

the driver was good and the van as well ,
it was a group trip , we were 3 people.

the camp is good , clean , very friendly stuff , food was ok ( could be better ) .

i highly recommend them since they did everything as we agreed.

would definitely book with them again.
if anyone of my friends or family plan a trip to africa , africa holiday will be the only agency we will deal with.

thanks,
Omar
