My girlfriend and I did a 4d/3n trip to Mt Kenya (via Sirimon Gate). At the beginning, it felt a bit unorganized, but we just needed to get used to the 'African' way of organization. The first day, we did a 3-4 hour walk which was nice but not too spectacular as you're not walking in the wild nature yet.... More

I have had a great 3 day safari in the masaai mara area. We had a great group. The camp was fine. Even though the group had booked through different companies, the driver Stanley managed to get everyone what they booked

Traveled to Africa for 5 days on safari in Kenya and 8 days on the beach in Zanzibar for our honeymoon. Robert was the most amazing organizer and had everything planned to a T. We must have exchanged 80 + emails to plan out the trip and it went without a hitch. He was very accommodating and gave his honest... More

I went on a group safari organised by ExplorerKenya, however the actual tour was subcontracted out to Jockey tours, with Ben as our driver. Ben was fantastic, and found us all the big 5, except Rhino. He also somehow spotted a Lioness and cubs feeding on a Zebra, and two Cheatah's hunting, which was probably the highlight. I go lucky...

We have recently returned from a four day safari in the Masai Mara. From the time we began communicating with Robert, arranging our booking, till being dropped back at our hotel after the safari, we have nothing but good things to say about Explorer Kenya. Our driver/guide was Simon. His level of knowledge of the wildlife, the park itself, the... More

Our guide, Peter, made the trip. He was a professional driver, adept at finding animals, full of information and enthusiasm. We saw lions (including mating) cheetahs (hunting) elephants, giraffe, ostrich, buffalo, crocodile and many, many wilderbeast, zebra and antelope (including a Thompson's gazelle giving birth). The tent with shower was fine, the food good and plentiful. For the price or... More

We had the pleasure of having Peter as our guide and driver. He made sure that we got the most of our Masai Mara safari. He managed to get us in the best positions for photos and ensured we were comfortable and the trip as pleasant as possible.

There is no dearth of safari providers in kenya. The range of safari cost can be very wide. I was looking at budget 3D/2N safari. Got goo quotes of below 400 from only 1-2 operators. Why I chose Explorer Kenya? Robert was very prompt in replying to mails. It felt professional. And they uphold this image. Everything was perfectly organized.... More

So I usually do much more research before booking multi-day tours, but because the reviews for this company were so great I just went ahead and booked their 3 day camping safari to Masai Mara. First off they contracted the tour out to another company. We were taken to an office of a completely different company, without any prior mention... More

Thank you Explorer Kenya for the wonderful camping safari! We are two students on a budget, so we thought that we would need to join a group. However, for only a small fee, Robert arranged for us to have a private safari in a 4WD jeep-very much worth it as the jeep can go places that a van cannot. We... More
