My dad has always loved wildlife and nature, so when my wife and I decided to visit Kenya and Tanzania, we asked him and my mom to join us on a safari. After doing some research, we reached out to Africa Safari Classics to inquire about a private 10-day safari. Maurice responded within the same day and provided the best quote. The tour was to cover Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria, Maasai Mara, and Amboseli in Kenya, and Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge Museum, and Tarangire in Tanzania.

The first driver guide was Tony, who picked us up very early in Nairobi given that we had a lot to cover on our first day. With a stop added at Lake Naivasha for a boat tour, we didn't reach Lake Bogoria until late afternoon. Despite likely feeling quite tired already, Tony still asked if we would like to check out Lake Bogoria before checking into our hotel, which we said yes. This was very much appreciated, as it meant that the next day we were able to leave Lake Bogoria for Maasai Mara right away, and we still had time for an afternoon game drive when we got to the national reserve. We were off to a great start, as we managed to see the Big Five already by having just spent three days in Kenya, including a family of rhinos at Lake Nakuru and a pair of lions on their honeymoon in Maasai Mara.

On our fourth day we left Kenya for Tanzania. At the border, Tony handed us over to Saidi, our second driver guide, who was very eager to show us why Tanzania in his view was better than Kenya. We spent that afternoon doing a game drive in Serengeti, and it didn't take us long to understand why Serengeti is world famous. Soon into our game drive, we were confronted by hundreds upon hundreds of wildebeests and zebras. It was a sight I, and I am sure my family as well, would never forget for the rest of our lives. The following day didn't disappoint either when we got to see a large pride of lions parading next to us and ending up sunbathing on the Maasai Kopjes, a leopard resting on a tree after its meal, and a few cheetah cubs playing with each other. Saidi managed to squeeze in one more morning game drive in Serengeti before we left for the Ngorongoro Crater. Along the way we stopped by the Olduvai Gorge Museum, which is definitely worth checking out given the location's significance to the human history. The view of the gorge is just breathtaking. We spent the night sleeping in a camp located at the top of the the Ngorongoro Crater, which is highly recommended because it allowed us to partake in a game drive early in the morning when the clouds would roll into the caldera, an absolutely gorgeous sight to see. Not knowing that we had already seen the Big Five in Kenya, Saidi wanted to find rhinos for us in the Ngorongoro Crater. However, it was not meant to be and Saidi was more disappointed than we were. Stopping at one of the viewpoints along the rim for one last look of the crater, we were taking photos when suddenly, Saidi tapped me on the shoulder and asked me with my camera to zoom into this black dot in this unreachable part of the crater. Lo and behold, it was a rhino, and Saidi high-fived me as he was so happy that we got to see the Big Five. We spent our last two days in Tanzania in Tarangire National Park, which is famous for its funny-looking baobab trees. Having seen so much already, I was at first unsure if Tarangire was going to offer something that could excite us anymore, but boy was I wrong. The swamp known as the Elephant's Paradise was one of my favourite places on the trip. It was just so beautiful to see different animals hanging by the water, which is home to a lot of different birds. Not quite a paradise though for one unlucky wildebeest, which served as lunch for a couple of lions right in front of our eyes.

The next day we said goodbye to Saidi as we returned to Kenya for the last destination of our journey, Amboseli National Park. Anthony was our driver guide for Amboseli, who was very knowledgeable and took us to locations where he knew would get us great photos. Anthony suggested that we wake up early the next morning and head out for a game drive before breakfast. It paid off as we were lucky enough to be able to photograph Craig the Super Tusker right in front of a clear Mount Kilimanjaro, which was then covered in clouds not too long after sunrise.

All in all, it was an amazing trip of a lifetime and we were so glad that we went with Africa Safari Classics. Along the way, Maurice kept checking in with me on WhatsApp to see how our guides were doing. Aside from the lunch boxes could've used more variety, we have nothing but good things to say about the safari. We love Kenya and Tanzania and their people, and we hope to come back to visit soon.

What a fantastic time we had. It just couldn’t have been any better. I was lucky in that this was my 4th safari, but it was the best, by far.

Maurice did a brilliant job in the organisation and selection of game parks and game lodges each one was outstanding in its own right. The vehicle was comfortable and allowed great views as we travelled around. Our Driver/Guide, Tony, was amazing. His knowledge of the area and the wildlife allowed us to learn and enjoy at levels we hadn’t expected.

If your thinking of a Safari then based on my experience I’d say book with Africa Safari Classics, then make sure you get Maurice to plan it for you, and finally get Tony to drive and guide you around. You will have the holiday of a lifetime.

What a magical experience! It was late when the two of us finally decided to go to Kenya. Maurice handled everything with great professionalism. He answered every question and assured us that it would be an amazing trip - he was right. Each camp exceeded what we expected; the accommodations, food, and daily rides were all 5 stars. We saw the Big 5, and so much more. The guides at the various camps became our friends. They knew where to go and what to look for, and helped us take some amazing pictures. We don't know if we could ever go to a zoo again with the same enjoyment. Kenyans are the friendliest people you'll ever meet; "Hakuna Matata" truly is their motto. Thank you, Maurice, for giving us an experience we will never forget. We recommend this company without any reservations.

Maurice was amazing in planning our last minute trip to Kenya and Tanzania . He chose the best possible place for us in North Serengeti and Masai Mara. But what really stands out is he is always available at any time. Thanks Maurice!

We travelled with Africa Safari Classics in July, 2023 and would like to share our experience which illustrates how extraordinarily helpful Maurice, the company’s sales director, is: Our tour went through Kenya (Amboselli, Masai Mara) to Serengeti in Tanzania. As we left our camp in the Northern part of the park, we accidentally left behind the toy bunny of our nine year old daughter. Given that this bunny has been with our daughter since she was born, this was a catastrophe! She was devasted and, given the remoteness of the camp, we had no idea how to organize its return. This is where Maurice jumped into action – he made contact with the hotel and organized the handover of the bunny to one of the pilots at the nearby Kogatende airstrip. The bunny then made its way to Arusha and from there to Namanga on the border between Kenya and Tanzania. Finally, it reached Nairobi where Maurice collected it and sent it with courier to London, where the bunny was received with open arms by our daughter. We still can't believe the hassle that Maurice went through to safely return it to us and we are so very grateful! Thanks you to Maurice and everyone else who was involved in this “rescue effort”!!

Where do I even start with how amazing this trip was thanks to the detailed planning and professionalism of Maurice and all of the staff we encountered during our 10 day safari in Kenya and Tanzania? We did not have to worry about a single thing once we arrived in Nairobi. All of the planned accomodations, transportation, and activities were executed on time with no issues. Maurice selected top notch lodging accomodations and was very responsive anytime we needed to confirm details or ask a question. Payments with this company were safe and the transactions were seemless. We were able to customize our trip up front with specific activities we wanted, and even when one activity was canceled (at no fault of Africa Safari Classics) it was replaced with a private walking safari that ended up being even better than what we had planned. We saw the Big 5 and MANY more animals. Each day on safari was unique and exciting! Relaxing at our luxury accomodations each evening and falling asleep to the sounds of lion roaring, baboons calling, and hyenas barking amongst a host of other animal calls...was simply amazing :). We will never forget the memories made on this trip!

I have nothing but compliments and thanks to Maurice and all his team on Africa Safari Classics. They are kind, repectful and always ready to please all of our demands.

My itinerary was for 12 days in Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzanis, and everything went exactly as planned. All the lodges were 5 stars with the best accomodations, and as always in Africa: full of nice and kind staff.

The local transportation was in 4 x 4 jeeps with al the comfort that you might expect, and the local floghts that were arranged, deprat and arrived on time.

We havethe best time during the Safari drives, and got to see the Big five (many times!!!)

All of our drivers: Peter (Kenya), Sibo (Rwanda) & Abdul (Tanzania) were very kind and ready to answer any of our questions.

In adittion on the first day that we arrived the airline (Saudia) lost our luggage (no responsability of Maurice), but he did the impossible to get our luggage delivered to our hotel so something that was a really big issue was a minor discomfort thanks to the help of Maurice!!!

Thank you very much Maurice and Africa Safari Classics for the travel of our lives!!!!!

As a photography enthusiast, I wanted to find a company who can work with me to tailor made an itinerary that is suitable for my needs. I was happy that I was able to work with Africa Safari Classics who tailor made an itinerary for me to explore and photograph Uganda, Kenya & Tanzania. I was happy with the communication from the start with the Sales Director Maurice who was professional, friendly and timely in all his communications. We just concluded our 25 day safari excursion and was totally happy with it. It was smooth when we move from one country to another and Africa Safari Classics was able to coordinate all transfers, lodges and game drives to meet our needs. All lodges were excellent except for two that were Eco Lodges that we were not aware of. But Maurice was there to fix those small issues that we experienced through his partners and overall we had an excellent experience.
The food was great, logistics were carried out with details and the game drives were excellent. The guides knew their parks inside out which is very important in any safaris. As a photographer I was able to capture some amazing images and you can check them out at Images by Reuben (On IG, FB and website).
Gorilla trekking in Uganda was a mind blowing experience for us. We selected the parks based on our needs and Amboseli and Serengeti never disappointed us. Overall we loved our safari experience and want to thank Maurice and his team for a great itinerary and experience. All their guides did an excellent job with ethical guiding which is very important when you are in the wild.
This trip was originally booked for last year and due to Covid, we were able to postpone without any issues through Maurice. All our deposits were transferred to this year and all went without any hazzle.

Our trip included safari/game drives in Amboseli, the Maasai Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. We also visited Rwanda for the gorillas and the Genocide Memorial.
The planning for the trip by Maurice was supurb; he actually came to meet us twice before we left Kenya, which was a bonus. He was extremely responsive and helpful.
Our camp style lodgings were beautiful, interesting, safe and included excellent service, without exception. Our first included views of baboons and monkeys right when we arrived, another was perched on the Mara river with many hippos and crocs in view each day... one even offered free massages (on our tent porch with views of antelope and zebras)!
The game drivers Maurice chose were all INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE and responsible - we never once stumped them with our many questions such as "what kind of bird is that?" or "why do the warthogs kneel when they eat?" They surprised us with champagne breakfasts (cooked on-site, no less) in the bush, sunset hilltop wine and appetizers, and another night, sunset cocktails watching a large pride of lions VERY CLOSE UP. Maurice even booked us a fabulous sunrise hot air balloon ride which, due to strong pilot skills, floated us low in order to get the best animal viewing possible. Our transportation, including flights between countries and local transport, was also well planned and went smoothly, with knowledgeable and helpful local drivers.
If you go to Amboseli, please consider making a DONATION to help the local Masai people as a multi-year drought in this region has killed the majority of their cows on which they depend for 100% of their sustanance. Your lodging manager or game driver can help with this. Or if you're inclined to assist with a most incredible project within the 600,000 resident Mukuru slum in Nairobi, please consider The Ruben Centre which educates 3,000 kids and provides medical care plus birth assistance (over 5,000 babies safely delivered!!!). You won't find a more effective, efficient NGO. We were honored to be able to dance with a class of about 100 kids in their gym class, meet many staff and witness their effectiveness in changing lives. You'd enjoy a tour!

This was a trip of a lifetime! We felt spoiled rotten with the customer care we received from Africa Safari Classics. Maurice planned and executed our itinerary with excellence. We had local guides that helped us with flights, transfers, hotel/camp check ins, tours, and anything we needed so we never felt like we had to know everything. So nice!!

The safari guides knew everything about anything we asked - the animals (SO MANY!), topography, the local people,, geography, schools, you name it.
They found all the animals we wanted to see and more - so many birds and trees to learn about too. We were blown away by their knowledge.

We visited Kenya Amboseli (visited a local village which was so moving) and Maasai Mara (do the hot air balloon!) then flew to Rwanda and did gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park and visited the genocide museum. The country is so beautiful and clean. The people are proud they have healed from past horrors. Everywhere we went the people were so happy.

Tanzania was our final stop where we visited the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Parks.
We loved the difference this country offered from the other two. Maurice checked in with us daily to make sure all our needs were met. He chose a variety of accommodations so we could have different experiences in lodgings. They were all AMAZING!

Thank you Maurice to you and your team of drivers and safari guides! We could not have asked for a more perfect trip!! VERY happy we chose you!
