I’ll say this first and foremost: the trip was incredible. Through and through we had an amazing time. We even got engaged on top of Kili! Thank you for taking care of everything for us.

The level of service at the hotels exceeded all expectations. The staff is something that will always be a great memory for the rest of our lives. Moses was a great driver that made us feel safe. He had great knowledge and was fun. Hotels could use air conditioning for hot nights.

From start to finish, our time with Africa Bound Safaris was an adventure to remember. Our guides Simon and Ambrose were not only knowledgeable and personable, we felt like they were welcoming family. The accommodations we stayed at and the variety of wildlife we saw were spectacular. Any request we made was accommodated. Of all the trips we have taken with our three children, this one had the kids engaged every moment. The memories of this country, its wildlife, and its people will be with us forever.

Thank you again for the trip of a lifetime!

Ambrose is the best guide one could ask for. The locations he took us to, the truly magnificent animals we saw and photographed, and our accommodations were more than anyone could ask for, and our school visit was a bonus. The food was without a doubt first class – so much more than I ever expected. The staff saw to our every need with a smile, and truly cared about our comfort and needs.

Thank you for giving me the experience of my life, one I will never forget.

Amazing organization both in Canada and on the ground in Africa. Marvelous accommodations and staff at every camp. Ambrose is a wonderful guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of everything that walks, swims, and flies in the country. All of our expectations for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure were not only met, they were significantly exceeded.

Thank you for organizing the most memorable trip that we have experienced. We loved working with Ambrose; his knowledge was impressive, his communication was excellent and he was an absolute delight to spend time with.

This was our first trip to Africa and the entire experience was beyond our wildest dreams. From the minute we arrived in Nairobi to the minute we left, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Our guides took care of everything. The food and the luxury accommodations were great and the service was outstanding. Everywhere we went we were treated like family.

We had done our research, watched travel programs, and thought we knew what to expect, but nothing could have prepared us for the feelings we experienced while on safari. Everyday was an adventure. Whether we were 10 feet from a pride of lions, touring a Maasai village, or watching the sun set from our tent, we were completely captivated by the unspoiled beauty of Kenya. We saw everything: the big five, hippos frolicking in the river, a leopard hiding his fresh kill up a tree, lions playing with wart hogs… it was amazing! Our guides instinctively knew where the animals would be.

This was a trip of a lifetime for our family! We have already started to plan a trip to Tanzania during the wildebeest migration.

We had a fantastic experience that exceeded our expectations. Simon, Ambrose and Lilliane did a great job explaining what to expect and ensuring all our needs were met. The itinerary, choice of parks, locations and accommodations were well balanced.

We wanted to thank Ambrose and Simon for the perfect honeymoon safari. We really appreciated all of the customization and attention. It will easily be one of, if not the best, trips we’ll ever go on. Thank you for providing us with the experience and memories.

Rob and Kristin

We will return to Canada with many terrific memories.

Lindsay and Jason


Choice of accommodations was superb. The guides were knowledgeable about the animals, birds, vegetation, and history of the country. Tanzania’s geography was over the top!

My fiancee and I spent 12 days and nights in Kenya and Tanzania. We were completely blown away by the arrangements that had been made by Africa Bound Safaris. This was by far the best vacation we have ever taken. The accommodations were second to none and the food was incredible. Our vehicles were clean, safe, and top of the line, which is very important when you’re in the middle of the Mara with lions circling! The guides we had were terrific. We saw “the big 5” many times over and also saw the wildebeest crossing as well as many fresh kills. Very exciting indeed. Our guides also had incredible, in-depth knowledge of the area, the cultures, and of course the animals that we saw. As we were in a small group, we were able to do what we wanted and see what we wanted. This added a lot of value to our trip as we didn’t always have to be on the go and keep to a ‘schedule’ like some of the other safari companies do.

There is no question that we will be going back on Safari with Africa Bound – the only question is, when? AAA, 5 star rating.

Without a doubt this is one of the best experiences of my whole life – it exceeded all of my expectations. Our guide’s positive attitude and fun personality, along with the animals, made our experience so unreal.

Honeymoon extras were really appreciated: champagne, flowers, dessert with singing, and wine all made our trip very special. Thanks for a wonderful honeymoon – never to be forgotten.

Ambrose was fantastic. The safari, in my opinion, was second to none. We were able to see a cheetah on the hunt, over 200 elephants all walking together, 5 lions in the Serengeti, a male lion up close in the crater (it was walking behind the truck), 4 leopards, rhino, zebras, giraffe, etc. The food was great (too much). The accommodations were excellent and their staff were very good.

Ambrose was the most amazing guide we could ask for in all respects. Well organized schedule, knowledge, personality, and a love for his profession. We hope to send more business your way.

Excellent service! Great having my grand-daughter with me. Loved all the history and stories. We saw so many animals, way beyond our expectations. Simon, very well done. We thank you.

February 2011

Bill and I want to thank you for the wonderful adventure that you shared with us in Tanzania. Our 9 days more than met our expectations and I can’t wait to show all our pictures to our family & friends. We have great memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you again and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you as a guide. You’re the best!

This was an incredible experience for me, made ultimately better by the exceptional guides from “Africa Bound”. At no time did I ever fear for my safety. The guides’ knowledge and ethics regarding the animals is admirable.

We were a group of 14 in total and were taken care of from the moment we arrived until we were dropped back at the airport on departure day. Everything about the trip was top-notch, from the guides, to the lodges, the meals, the game drives, the vehicles, and the overall organization. The guides were very social, sharing their expertise and teaching us much about their countries, people, wildlife and life in general. They also assisted us in visiting and helping some rural schools and orphanages – it was truly a privilege to share time with Simon/Nik and Ambrose/Roman and I certainly hope to return one day in the future. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone interested in traveling to Africa. Keep up the good work!

One thing I can say for sure is that it does not matter how many books you read and how many pictures you see, you will be amazed when you come to the country. No camera can capture the real beauty and essence of the country.

B Thompson

We had an exceptional guide… experienced, knowledgeable, and very interested in African wildlife & ecology. All aspects of our trip were well organized and well executed.

Phillip C.

[Our guides] were both very knowledgeable and shared their passion about wildlife with us, making us feel like old friends. They went above and beyond to facilitate what the various guests needed. Overall the properties were fabulous, staff at all hotels were quite good and friendly. It definitely ranks up there as one of the highlights of my life.

J. Purdie

We could not believe what we saw in the Mara: the crossing of the wildebeest and zebra for almost an hour and a half. We could not believe it was not a documentary we were watching. Honeymoon couple.
