The owner, Mike, helped us plan the perfect safari for our limited time. He was very timely and informative responding to our many questions. We felt very comfortable and valued as a client.
Our driver guide was Kamau, and he was absolutely brilliant the whole time. Fastidious with time keeping, but flexible to our needs, he made sure that we not only saw everything possible, but that we understood what we were seeing. The main purpose was the animals, of course, but Kamau also shared some of the history and political climate which made this trip event more interesting. Oh yes, the animals! We gave up counting at over 40 different species. Kamau was obviously a leader among the guides, and ensured we had a premium view. We bought a book about the animals at the last resort to add toour own still and video photography.
We were on a 6 days, 5 nights, 3 location safari, and believe, based on conversations with guests on other safaris, that this was ideal. It's a lot of driving, on very rough terrain. We would highly recommend choosing a Jeep rather than a van, some of which were very crowded. We were fortunately the only two people in our Jeep, so that was a bonus.
Can't speak highly enough about this safari operator! I'm sure you would not be disappointed!

We have booked a safari by internet with First African Dream Tours & Safaris.
Our high expectations were not only met, they were even exceeded.
We were accompanied by the tour operator Michal K. Musyoka (called Mike) and the driver Nikki.
Because of the great competence and effort of these two really nice and extremely friendly people, we were able to watch a great variety of animals who usually hide during the day (because of the dry season).
Before booking we have informed us about different local safari providers via internet.
The presentation of First African Dream Tours and Safaris (www.fadsafaris.com) made us curious. So we decided to contact them by email. All our questions were answered promptly.
We are very happy that we decided us for this safari operator. and can highly recommend to book with them just like we did.
Thank you very much Mike & Nikki for guiding us and making some of our dreams become true.

We were really excited to go on safari. First we've booked our flights and then we were looking for a customised safari. First we've contacted some travel agencies in Germany, but it became clear that it would be very expensive. Then we checked Tripadvisor and read about First African Dream safaris. We were direct in contact with Mike and he didn't mind to answer all our questions.
We took the risk of booking with First African Dream safaris. My family, and I as well, were a bit anxious. We needed to pay 40% of the safari in advance.

When we arrived in Nairobi, we were very pleased to meet our Guide, Charles.
The trip was very well planned, and our guide was really MARVELOUS :-)
Charles is a good and safe driver, knows a lot of the region and animals and is humouristic.
The guide makes or destroys such kind of trip, so we were very happy with Charles.

We also had a comfortable Safari Jeep, which in our opinion is better than a minivan.
Also the accomodations were very good and charming.

So nothing but positive feedback regarding our trip.

Just came back from our 3 day Masai Mara Safari and it did not disappoint. Mike was very efficient and helpful during the whole booking process. We opted to pay a little extra for the land cruiser and we are so glad that we did. Our guide and driver were excellent and really took care of us throughout.

We started in Nairobi and the journey to Masai Mara took about 5 hours in total. Take a good book and personal iPod. Some of the road is bumpy as it's not all tarmac'd.

We stayed at Sarova mara Lodge which was a good choice. The rooms were nice and comfortable.

Overall a great few days and we would highly recommend First African Dream safari's if you are looking for a good local company to deal with. Great experience.

Hi, we are Alan and Ellen from Kent , After reading TripAdvisor reviews finally we took our dream vacation, a Photographic Safari in Kenya, we contacted fad ( mike ) who was very friendly and helpful. We studied weather, the migrations and planned every step and detail. We booked for September 2013, a 11 days Safari tour in Kenya, to Tsavo East and West, Amboseli, Naivasha, Nakuru, Bogoria and Massai Mara Areas. We needed a Tour guide with basic knowledge of Photography and we were very lucky to meet Charles ( mutinda musyoki) our tour guide., He is a nice person, punctual, serviceable, good humored and clever, because I told him how to get the best Photos ( light, angle, stop the engine, sun position etc. ) and immediately found for us the best angle., Our van was impeccable, he was always supportive with our questions, with the right answers in different topics ( ecology, political, animals and plants names ). He is open to learn the information we gave him regarding different issues.
We are recommending Charles MusyokI with friends who want to go and visit this beautiful land, our relatives JOHN and CHRITINE our travel mates highly recommended him too, We have Charle's help, to run a program for control littering in the Parks. We are keeping in touch with him on several issues concerning Africa, birds and Ecology, best regards Alan and Elen.
