TripAdvisor ratings of Kenya safari operators led me to contact several companies in mid-2012 concerning a safari I was organizing for late August through mid-September, 2013. One of the first operators to respond was Martin Mugo of Africa Veterans Safaris. Martin not only offered the lowest cost for my 2013 afriCATreks safari, but worked closely with me over the ensuing... More

When booking a safari and been a seasoned pro, I still get apprehensive when booking Africa, because there are so many stories. Martins Africa Veterans is a trustworthy, and enjoyable, flexible company who I will be booking next year once again. Like many African companies and countries they would like feedback and get excited at giving great service . This... More

We had a 5 days safari. Martin replied us promptly. And when we first arrive, Martin and our guide and driver-Richie, came to our hotel to make sure our itinerary of safari goes smooth. We can feel your hospitality and passion. Your driving skill is great. Every time , we can look animals closely. When the tour finished, he asked... More

Was extremely happy and satisfied with the service provided by Africa Veterans Safari. Martin was very patient and prompt at answering the questions in my emails before the safari. I think I sent him at least one email every three days for two to three months. Daniel, our driver was also very informative and helpful. We managed to see the... More

We did not go on safari with Africa Veterans but had a very bad experience in requesting an offer from them. We asked a couple of operators for their quote for a one week long safari. Veterans, as all other operators, were very quick in replying to our request and also reacted fast on clarifications (which is why I rate... More

To be honest the entire safaris is great. Daniel did a great job and Martin reply the letter very soon. The problem is that we ask them to sent the postcard for us in the last day which is Sunday and the post office did not open so i can't get the stamps. They said no problems and we gave... More

Not only was I asked twice (before and after my safari) to review Africa Veterans positively, but I was then e-mailed to ask me again to review them. Tripadvisor, I believe, is a community for travellers to use as and when they see fit, not for tour operators to use as a marketing tool. I am happy if Africa Veterans... More
