We went to Masai Mara safari with Mr Julius Ngure which is a man with extremely high social competence,and a none nonsence approach. Mr Ngure is a high educated person with a long experience of wild life and an network that showes his competence and the respect from his friends . We can only say that we highly recommend him as a guide in the national parks of Kenya.
Thank you very much to Alex who organised the whole trip to the Masai Mara including a comfortable stay at the Deerpark Luxury Hotel. Everything went smoothly! Fam.Karlsson from Sweden

Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
