Our group of 4 had an AMAZING time with ACZ Safaris. John helped us pick the best options for our group and our driver Martin went above and beyond to make sure we got to see everything. We even got to see white rhinos! We got back to Nairobi early and John took us to see/feed the giraffes before our flight which was on my bucket list!
The BEST trip ever!!!
Actually I visited Jun 2016. I had amazing experience with ACZ safari. I join the 2nights camp by myself. Martin, our guide was super good! He showed us great safari. He taught us many many things about animals. It was just AMAZING. John from ACZ safari was very helpful. He gave me suggestions and taught me where to see. I definitely recommend ACZ safari. Even for solo, it was really fun and nothing to worried.
From preparing, to booking, to the actual experience, we are 100% satisfied!!!!
The safari was the most memorable experience of our lives so far. John was our driver and he was very friendly and shared his knowledge of Nairobi, Masai Mara, the people and the culture. He shared the plan for the next drive/day/adventure and always asked if that was ok with us or if we wanted to change. We also had a great group that we went on safari with. Not once did I hear anyone upset about any experience they had with ACZ. We were lucky and had only 6 people on our tour,
After getting quotes from 10+ travel agencies, I went with ACZ because Joshua was very prompt and professional with communication from inquiry to booking. Pricing was comparable/competitive with other agencies.
I joined a 3-day Masai Mara Group Safari in February 2018, staying at Mara Sopa Lodge and it was the trip of a lifetime! Francis was our driver and guide throughout. He was alway smiling and making his best effort to make our trip enjoyable. We were incredibly lucky to see the big 5: a black rhino, leopard, cheetah, lions, elephants, giraffes, buffalo, hippos, zebras, gazelles, impalas – and many up close! Nothing could have prepared me for the breathtaking beauty of the Masai Mara. Francis knows everyone in and around the park.
Note that the drive from Nairobi to the Masai Mara is 5 hours, the last 2-3 of which are on unpaved/bumpy road. A new road is currently in construction (finished by end of 2018?). The all-day game drive is quite long (~10 hours) and you are in the van the entire time except for lunch and bathroom breaks. The Mara Sopa lodge was great, comfortable rooms with delicious food. We also visited the Masai Village – they naturally get many tourist visitors but I found it to be a very informative and memorable visit, learning about their culture and way of life.
Overall, I can’t recommend enough ACZ, this won’t be my last time to the Masai Mara, I highly recommend it!
