Unfortunately I didn´t this review when I should. I did the safari trough Kenya Explorer in late June 2014. I went with my wife and my 8yo son. The safari was tailor made, because I said what I wont and they proposed an itinerary. Robert always answered to my e-mails and doubts within 24h. They picked us up at the... More

I can tell only the best things about our trip. Robert was very quick and cooperative in arranging the details of our trip, he helped to make detailed itinerary for a reasonable price. We spent 3 days in Maasai Mara, our driver / guide Simon did the best that one can expect. Simon is very skillfull and experienced and he... More

Needed a last minute day-tour of Nairobi and Explore Kenya really helped out. We rented one of their safari vehicles with a driver for the day and visited Nairobi National Park and several city sights as well. Response from the company via email was very prompt and informative. Our diver was friendly, informative, and a skilled driver. It has been... More

We did a 7 day customized trip of Tanzania & Kenya in Nov (Lake Manyara - Ngorongoro - Amboseli - Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara). Robert was super responsive & prompt and happy to answer our numerous questions. He offered practical advise to make our trip more memorable. Also on the way over our flight was delayed by 24 hours... More

I had been to the Masai Mara before but only for a brief visit. I chose Explorer Kenya because the price seemed great for what they had to offer with the 4 day budget safari with meals, transport and tent accommodations included. I am so glad I did! Robert was very attentive and responded to emails promptly during the planning... More

Robert from explorer gave us the best rate for 3-day Safari and was always fastest in responding to all the inquires so we decided to go with him. No regrets!! Everything was perfect! Even though the journey to Mara took much long than expected due to a strike, Nick-the best driver ever-managed to find a solution and we did not... More

Good to hear the safari went well, was worried when the road was blocked by the striking bus drivers but Nick came through and found a solution to get you past the strikers. I appreciate your business and feel free to contact us for another safari. We try our best to provide what we have promised. More

We did a Kenya safari (Samburu-Nakuru-Naivasha-Mara-Amboseli) in August 2015 after about two months of planning. I started email exchanges with three companies way back and found Robert to be most responsive and offering practical expertise. I did not want to go with a big company as your individual needs often get lost..so Kenya explorer was our choice. We were lucky... More

I booked a trip to lake Nakuru for the all day, being not that cheap (250$) for the day I was really expecting a great experience. While I met the guide in the lobby of the hotel, we jumped in the car and he tells me : "I don't speak when I drive but you can ask me questions". A... More

Thanks for the review, we really appreciate feed back that assists us improve our services. I spoke with Peter and he says you misunderstood him.

I honestly think I'd enjoy a tour through the Masai Mara with almost any tour company; the Reserve is absolutely incredible. Booking through Explorer Kenya's website was easy. I dealt with Robert via email and he was quick to reply and address all my questions. Wiring money wasn't a problem as they did accept payment via PayPal, though the fees... More
