I just finished an 11 day Kenya safari via Gate 1. Francis was our guide and driver. He was exceptional! Friendly, knowledgeable, excellent game finder, and kind. I would highly recommend Francis.

Busy city and visited giraffe center that my daughters loved (18 and 11) and national Kenya museum. Enjoyed museum trip and got a sense for its history and makeup. Our bags did not arrive for 4 days and Vintage Africa was most helpful in dealing with airport.

We traveled with Vintage Africa, via Friendly Planet., June 2012. It was a fantastic experience! Way beyond our expectations. It was a package deal with a frantic pace and lots of moving from one place to another. We saw lots of wildlife and our guide, George was wonderful. Because we were so pleased, we wanted to return to Africa, but... More

We have just returned from our fourth superb trip with Vintage Africa. The last 3 times, we booked with them direct by email. They put together a tailor made itinerary, recommended and booked accommodation, and provided vehicles and driver/guide. Their sales staff were extremely helpful in designing and finalising the arrangements and their vehicles were excellent and well-maintained. The guide... More

My husband and I just returned from the trip of a lifetime! In January 2014 we set off for Africa for a 14 day safari adventure. Goway Travel had arranged for Vintage Africa to manage the 9 day portion of the safari in Kenya. Upon arrival at the Nairobi airport we were warmly greeted by Eileen and Dominic. At the... More

I spent Christmas in Nairobi Kenya via Friendly Planet. My driver on Safari via Vintage Africa was the most thoughtful (he would stop for potty breaks even though we lagged behind the rest of the group, with a smile, take us to purchase snacks at less expensive venues), make us laugh, share his knowledge and LOVE for Kenya. He was... More

We were very pleased with Vintage Africa and especially with our driver/guide, Tony. Every aspect of his support to our tour was excellent. For example, he: - was always friendly - was professional, clean and well dressed - spoke clear English, making it easy for us to understand all he had to tell us - knew the plants, animals and...

I booked 17 days Kenya and Tanzania thru GoAhead tours, never again. The transportation is horrible. If you have the slightest back problem (which I do not) do not book this safari. You travel miles and miles over the absolute worse washboard roads in existence. You are constantly choking on dust. No a/c and to hot to have the windows... More

Hi "kajun cutie" - thanks for sharing your experience while on tour with us! The bottom line of your feedback is absolutely on the dot - long distances and terrible road conditions. Africa is vast and underdeveloped in many aspects, which is the downside to having some of the last animal strongholds on Earth and the most amazing NATURAL places... More

I just got back from my safari through Kenya. I booked through Friendly Planet and they use Vintage Africa for their safaris. We could not have been happier with them. The vehicles were clean and went everywhere. Even though we went through and over some dusty roads, every morning the vehicle was clean again. Our driver was excellent-knowledgeable, interesting and... More

We were booked thru Gate1 Travel and they contract with Vintage Africa, who did a magnificent job on our multi day safari. We could not have asked for better drivers, or more animal sightings than we had. We caught the migration, and it was due to the drivers flexibility in making a full day game drive that made it possible... More

Thanks so much for taking the trouble in posting your review, and we are proud of having lived up to your expectations! Please note that your safari van had in fact NO 4x4 transmission, but we are glad you were under that impression - it says a lot about the driver's skills! More
