We came in touch with Zippy from Australken through another tour operator. This was our luck because we had one of the best safari’s (3 days Masai Mara) during our 3,5 week trip through Kenya and Tanzania. She was very helpful and not pushing for a decision for us where to go. We we’re accompanied by driver/guide Evans and cook... More

It was a real pleasure to work with you and to travel with our team- Symon (guide), Daniel (cook), and Kata (assistant). (We asked for Symon and Daniel in advance... More

After having been picked up directly after our flight, no time was wasted in getting us straight to our camp at the Maasai Mara for an excellent lunch, then out onto a game drive. Our driver Symon got us closer than we could have imagined possible to an incredible array of wildlife - several lions, elephants, giraffe, cheetah - and... More

Symon is a brilliant guide and a great guy. He showed us a lot of animals, we made thousands photos. It was always interesting to talk to him. Not only about National... More

Fantastic guide Symon en chef Daniel showed us Kenya. We learn about it's history, it's present situation, and it's biology and archeology. An experience we will never forget.

We were recommended by our friends who have booked 3 times with Australken and we can see the reason why they keep on returning. We booked an 8 days safari and we were meant to pay by credit card but Zippy suggested to us that Barclay's bank charges then 5% so we could do a bank transfer which cost only... More

I was in a large party of family and friends, ranging in age from under-fives to pensioners. All members of the party were well catered for and enjoyed their safari experience thanks to the Australken team. The drivers were very friendly and experienced and, with eyes like hawks, made sure we didn't miss seeing any animals or birds in the... More

What a wonderful well organised safari we had with Zippy and Simon making the holiday so relaxed worry free and amazing. Kenya is an amazing country to have a safari. We were takin to lovely safari lodge accommodation and experienced the wild animals when on the trips with Simon very knowledgable drivers. Looking forward to coming back to Kenya.

I'd like to express gratitude to this great company, and especially to Zippy and Simon who did our first safari amazing and unforgettable. Everything was well organized from very beginning. As it was our first safari and made a tour with pretty tough schedule to visit 4 parks and requested a quote from 5-7 companies. Some of them changed our... More

We are just very grateful to Australken, especially to Zippy, Daniel and Simon, and the other members of the team, for a great journey and adventure during our first visit in Kenia and Tanzania. Daniel helped us to safely climb Mount Kenia and Kilimanjaro, and Simon showed and told us everything he knew about wild animals and their habitats. Zippy... More
