Just returned from a FABULOUS two week safari experience with Amazing Memories and could not be happier! My friend and I conducted a lot of research and decided on Amazing Memories due to the outstanding reviews, moderate prices, and the excellent communication as they immediately responded to our email questions. Amazing Memories did not disappoint. They were flexible in working with us to customize our itinerary so we could maximize our time and money, offering a variety of options. We had a fabulous package to Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru, and Masai Mara in Kenya, followed by the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, ending with three nights of relaxation in Zanzibar. All the plans worked out perfectly, with our pick-up and transfers in Tanzania and Zanzibar. We had a combination of lodges and tented camps. Each one unique, but all comfortable with good bathrooms/hot water. The vehicles were comfortable and well maintained. It was great to have our own personal driver/guide. Joseph (in Kenya) and Santos (in Tanzania) took great care of us and had keen eyes for spotting the animals. We saw all the Big Five plus so many other animals -- it was truly AMAZING! I highly recommend this company -- they exceeded our expectations in service, reliability, professionalism, friendliness, and value for the money. Also recommend the end of safari relaxation in Zanzibar -- very nice after the dusty days and long bumpy rides in the bush!

Well what can we say about this AMAZING company Amazing Memories Safaris other than that they definitely live up to their name!!! What a a great trip we had with them. Right from the start they were so wonderful to work with while we created a brilliant experience of all that Kenya has to offer. Any problems we had were quickly and effortlessly dealt with. So impressed with their amazing Nairobi team who looked after us for our first few days and transfers - Joseph specifically! He is amazing and just so full of knowledge about Nairobi and what it has to offer. Then we had the delightful and very talented (at spotting and finding animals) Ronnie who was our guide and driver for our safaris. Just amazing and such a gift to be with on those long journeys. He is an expert in finding animals which was a real bonus. Just loved his laughter and personality as added significantly to the fun of our adventure. But I couldn't have created and enjoyed the adventure as much as I did without the incredible Anne who was truly an Angel to work with. 10 star rating if it was available. I highly recommend this company and its team as been the best experience and I have been doing events for over 27 years so really know what's out there. Asante sana!!!!!! See you in 2019 xxx

Our 15 day safari tour was met with 3 days of frustration when the upgraded hotel accommodations we had contracted were not paid for in a timely manner. We contracted for all services in January 2018, made the $4K deposit and paid the balance prior to our departure from the USA as the Contract required.

It was not until the night before we were to arrive at the Mara Serena that we were told by AMS that the hotel had over-booked and our reservation was not available. We did find out from the hotel manager that AMS had been contacted for payment due, and when it was not received they released our reservation. The same situation for our reservation at the Ngorongoro Serena.

We feel AMS broke our Contract by not paying for our hotel reservations in a timely manner and not providing the accommodations in our Contract.

FYI - these tour companies must pay upfront for hotel reservations. Our advice if you plan to use this tour group, demand that before you leave home you have Vouchers for all hotels in your possession. This is your guarantee the reservations have been paid for and will be there when you arrive.

We also coordinated a visit to Zanzibar for 3 days to relax at the beach, following the safari. AMS did a good job scheduling the airlines and driver for pick up. AMS recommended The Sands on the east side of the island. There is a floor of coral and sea urchins at the shoreline, so this is not a beach you can run out in bare feet and swim. It is a good choice if you just want to relax at a quiet location with lounge chairs and covers from the sun provided on the beach at no additional cost.
