Latest Reviews on TripAdvisor…
My friend and I booked an experience with Amazing Memories and it was perfect from the first email we sent to the moment we said goodbye to our guide at... read more the airport. When we reached out to Amazing Memories, Anne was very quick to respond and provide us the information that we need. We were given three different options and the ability to make changes wherever we wanted - it was totally flexible and essentially could be tailored to suit whatever we wanted to do. We flew into Nairobi and stayed the night before starting our Safari adventure the next day. We were picked up from our hotel and introduced to our guide (Joseph) who was absolutely outstanding for the entire trip. We went to three different national parks and everything was very well organised and we felt incredibly safe. Joseph was the best guide we could have wanted - he made every effort to ensure we had the best experience possible! We would definitely book again and we would definitely request Joseph 🙂

I rarely write reviews however I'll make an exception for Amazing Memroies Safaris as they really were outstanding. When searching for a travel company to go with, there... read more was a very wide range in prices. AMS were on the more reasonable end of the price range. Anne was extremely patient with us as we chopped and changed itinerary and offered excellent suggestions to tailor our holiday. If I am honest, we were not completely sure what we would get for our money once we arrrived however we need not worry. The locations, accomodation, food, drivers were all excellent. We were completely taken care of from the moment we landed and met in Nairobi. David our tour guide was excellent and took us to all the places were the Big 5 hung out. We stayed at Mbweha Camp in Lake Nakuru which was stuning, Ashnil Mara Camp which was great. Anne arranged flights & drivers to Mombassa where we stayed at Sarova Whitesands. It's all the little extras that made the difference from arranging sundowner, driver pick ups / drop offs and a driver to take us around Nairobi on the last day. Would definitely recomend them to anyone considering a safari.
