If Kenya is Heaven, Best Camping Tours and Safaris is the Pearly Gates Kenya Offers best Wild Life Experience. All what we saw, photographed, learnt is amazing!! Seeing in real time what we have seen on TV is surreal!! We were introduced to Mr Imraan Nanji by a person who went to Kenya 4 times through Best Camping Tours. We emailed, spoke though skype and chatted on whatsapp. He prepared us well to visit Kenya, advised and arranged the tour to suit our taste and likes. We had adequate warm clothing, walking shoes, binoculars, cameras, caps and insect replant.

Best camp employee was at the airport to receive us despite the flight delay, had the best guide allocated to us and thereafter is was like a dream come true to all of us. Best Camp has meticulously planned our trip, the route, accommodation, safaris and nature tours, our safety, food and all other comforts.

Each time our guide (Mr Jack Machariya) was ready before us, responsible, spoke good English and well acquainted with the jungles and all animals.

When the show started, we saw the Big 5 and many more. Clouds cleared to show us the top of Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro (where for weeks no one has seen them), Flamingos were in millions at Nakuru and at Amboseli. The guide told us Wilder-beast were roaming but they have not crossed the Mara River for days. He advised us the heat may be too much to bear while encouraging us to be patient. We watched for two hours and they crossed!!

We are sure we were lucky to encounter the best sightings of the wild. However we will visit Kenya again very soon as we are very excited with our experience. Thanks Imraan and Jack you are the stars!! Returned home with full realization Imraan and his wife Shifaana are our best friends for ever!!

One’s travel begins way before he/she takes a flight to a foreign land. It begins from the time you zero-in on a destination and start the formalities of finalizing the nitty-gritties. Therefore in essence the pre-planning stage is as important as the holiday itself. But if you are traveling to an African nation for a safari and that too for the first time as an absolute greenhorn it becomes even more important than the holiday itself since your holiday would entirely depend on right choices you make in selecting what and who you go with as operators. We were very fortunate to have chosen Best Camping Tours and Safari as our tour company. Right from the time the first mail was dashed to them informing them about our holiday needs and enquiring about possible packages and pricing Mr. Imraan Nanji (the Proprietor) was nothing but exemplary. He answered every mail promptly providing the necessary details and recommendations. No matter how trivial the query seemed. It was not just the information but the professional tone and the right communication etiquettes that put me at ease, coming from the communications industry myself, I knew that here was a person who understood. I was in conversation with two other tour companies but I chose BCTS for its professionalism and pricing which was the icing. Living up to the company’s tagline “No frills but plenty of thrills” BCTS delivered on everything that our personalized itinerary promised and more. They even went beyond and helped us with things that were not part of the itinerary like getting our Yellow fever vaccination organized, and a trip to Maasai Market, both in Nairobi. Right from the meet-and greet at JKIA by Thomas our Nairobi representative to our heavy-hearted adieu with Ben our tour-guide, custodian and guardian for 8 days there was hardly anything we could complain about. Ben with his immense composure, valuable knowledge about local wildlife and culture and resilience in handling adverse situations (like a massive breakdown on the highway causing mile long traffic congestion or when an upstart forest ranger tried to harass him to make a fast buck in Mara) was our bedrock. Our experience with BCTS makes us conclude that here is a company that takes immense pride and pleasure in what they do. Needless to say we highly recommend them. You are unlikely to find the kind of expertise and service at such pricing. We plan to revisit them soon. Sooner if we can help it. Thank-you Imraan and everyone at BCTS for making our holiday in Kenya full of memories we will cherish for a lifetime. Asante Sana and Kila la kheri. !!!!!

Great service and a wonderful experience
We were returning to Africa and wanted to go on safari again with the help of Best Camping Tours & Safaris, the same company we booked with in 1995. We were delighted to work with Imraan, the son of the owner we worked with originally. Imraan asked us a few key questions and in no time put together an itinerary that fit our goals and timetable. He arranged an amazing safari experience, smooth transport and a fantastic lodge accommodation. He recommended traveling to Maasai Mara by small plane as the weather had made the roads difficult for travel. It not only saved us time, because we likely would have been stuck on the roads as other travelers were, but it also added immensely to the experience – the flight was spectacular. The private guide Imraan arranged at Maasai Mara grew up in the area and was intimately familiar with everything and every place in the park. The lodge Imraan booked, Keekorok, was wonderful. The staff treated us so well. The lodge was spotlessly clean, and the food was outstanding, with a huge variety of dishes and loads of fresh fruit and vegetables. But it was the setting that stood out. it was an oasis, with a variety of animals nearby and even walking through the grounds. The hippo pool with viewing tower was captivating. We can’t say enough about the impeccable service and value of Best Camping Tours and Safaris. We will definitely look forward to booking with the company again in the future.

BCTS, YOU ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY BEST!

The tour to Kenya was more than satisfaction, excitement and ‘recharging’ for everybody who love Nature, Animals and Birds (fauna & flora of a real JUNGLE).
BCTS is not simply a ‘Professional’ entity, but a ‘Very Personal Touch – Organization’. All arrangements during our (all of us in the age group of 60 to 73)
ten days’ tour, were excellent and absolutely haselfree.  One need not worry about stay, facilities, food, conveyance and everyday timetable.
TheOwners, Managers, Co-workers, hotel – staff were very affectionate.
The Owners were really concerned for our wellbeing throughout our stay till departure. No words to express our satisfaction for the tour as a whole,
towards the Owners Mr. Shiraj & Mr. Imran Nanji who took care of us with real affection, wholeheartedly. Especially our Driver Mr. Ben was a
wonderful personality; being very alert, sober, enthusiastic, expert in locating right spots during game drives, and very patient too! Our manager Mr.
Thomas was a great help to us at all difficult times. Camera (any type), Binoculars are ‘a must’.
Our short visit of total 14 days (3 days in Masaimara) was so memorable, that we had our ‘Lifetime Experience’ which everybody must have at least once!
GO KENYA ONLY WITH BEST CAMPING TOURS AND SAFARIS AND ENJOY!!!!!

We did a 4 days tour with Best Camping Tours. They planned everything for us from Airport pickup to Airport Drop and everything in between while giving us very personalized service and taking care of all our special requirements.

On the very first day, we had a problem with Airline and we arrived very late in Nairobi which they handled very gracefully. With reference of them, we managed to get a very good discount on our Hotel – when i say very good it means much below the standard rate of that room on that night – almost half the price.

We went to Masai Mara with private Safari Car for two nights. Local arrangements were outstanding and we truly experienced the thrill of living in the wild, in a tent! Caretakers were extremely polite, caring & well cultured. they showed us around all the wild animals; within few hours we managed to see all the big 5’s” – seriously I am not joking, all the big 5’s. It looked like the tour guide was so seasoned and knew every bit of national park that he took right at the spot where those animals could be found. Other day, we witnessed a hunt as well. Local Masai guards, who guarded our tent at night, were amazingly sweet and surprisingly good at English. They took special care of our dietary requirements as well.

They also showed us a local Masai village (you can find those amazing videos and photos on my Instagram account) and gave briefing about traditions and way of living.

We went to Lake Naivasha for one night with same car and then our back to Nairobi. Driver cum Guide, Mr. John, was so eager to help us when we made a request to have some photos in tea farms. At the same time, he was very protective about our safety.

No doubt, this was one of our best adventurous trip and this team made it even more interesting and unforgettable. Did I forget to mention value for money? Yes, we got best value for our money and let me mention here that we were having economy budget.

To all those, who are seeking adventure in Safari Capital of Africa, should stop right here on this page and no need for further internet browsing – Just go with this company – You won’t regret it!
Have fun, Maroof

Dear Imraan,

This is a short e-mail to say “Thank You” for organizing what has turned out the best adventure of my life, the 2012 Kenya Camping Trip.

The professionalism of Best Camping Tours and Safaris and the in-depth knowledge and dedication of its staff are like none I have come acroMasai Marass with any other operator. The staff who drove us on the Safaris seemed to know everything about the animals that we came across; their names, habitats and habits.

In addition to that the good maintenance of the camp site and gear meant we did not have to worry about much during our stay.

Your dedication to ensuring that we’re well looked after, and how you’ve gone out of your way to make sure that everything is taken care of as it should be has really left me so impressed that I now would comfortably recommend Best Camping Tours and Safaris to anyone wishing to visit Kenya.

As a small token of my appreciation please find attached a link to my best photos taken during the trip and a short video I made of it too. Please feel free to use any of thiis material in whichever way you wish.

I sincerely look forward to meeting you again. Until then, thank you and your entire team for all your hard work and dedication.

all the best
