Great biologist, great guide, great guy.

Reviewed October 25, 2015

Peter Kamau Mugo is a very knowledgeable biologist and a great guy. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to see the wildlife and National Parks of Kenya. Peter was our guide in October 2014 when my son and I went to Masai Mara National Reserve for several days and also was our guide for a long day trip to Lake Nakuru National Park. It was my first trip to Africa so I didn't know what to expect. The whole experience was wonderful. Peter picked us up at our hotel in Nairobi on time and we drove straight to Masai Mara. He's a trained biologist, understands wildlife behavior and is a very good spotter. We saw 27 species of mammals (!!) between Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru, including four of the Big 5 and 10 different species of African antelopes. Peter is a good, sane, driver and respected park rules about staying on the roads. He's very easy going. He gave us time to get good wildlife photos. We were mostly interested in the big game animals but he pointed out some of the birds and I think he knows them as well. So I think Peter would be a good guide for a birder as well. Again, I think Peter Mugo would be a good choice for a guide for anyone wanting to see the wildlife and National Parks of Kenya.

Nairobi National Park

Reviewed August 17, 2015

I have only good things to say about Peter and the experience he gave me. He arrived at the hotel to pick me up on time. During the safari he was always trying to enhance my experience. communicating with others in the park to locate the animals. Peter was knowledgable and every question I asked he was able to answer. We saw lots of animals and he always positioned the bus that enabled me to take wonderful photos. Finally he was able to drop me straight at the Airport as I asked. I have passed on his details to other friends who have used him as a guide and had a similar experience to me. I have no hesitation in recommending Peter to anyone wanting to use his services.

1 Day Nairobi Big Day Out

Reviewed August 10, 2015

Our tour covered Nairobi National Park, Sheldrick's Elephant Orphanage, Langata Giraffe Centre and the Karen Blixen Museum, our guide was Peter and he made our day a memorable one. Peter was a great guide and we could tell he was passionate about the wildlife in the park and shared our love of photography so he was patient and ensured we got some great close up shots of the wildlife. Even if you are due to go on safari elsewhere I would recommend staying a couple of days in Nairobi and making the short distance to Nairobi National Park, it really is quite unique seeing the backdrop of Nairobi in the background. Peter was really informative about the wildlife we saw and the places we visited throughout the day, he was open to answering all the questions we had and was insightful about life and culture within Kenya. The Elephant Orphanage is really good to visit if you like elephants you get to see them feeding and learn about all the good work the centre is doing. The Giraffe Centre is also abit unique where else can you get so close up to a giraffe and actually feed them. If you have read the book or watched the film Out of Africa I would recommend also adding the Karen Blixen to your day tour. Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter, he was friendly, knowledgeable, insightful and made us smile throughout our day tour.
