I must admit I have never been as close to wildlife as i was in crescent Island and mind you these animals are not caged they roam freely around the Island. The guides were also really knowledgeable and articulate they really gave us lots of facts about the animals there. As for the boat rides they were thrilling especially when... More

Was a great trip via boats. This was organised through our tour company, Transtrek saffaris. Very much liked our guide on the island. He was very knowledgeable and learnt a lot from him.

I'm Kenyan and have been to many game parks, and believe me when I say, I have rarely been so close to wild animals as I was on crescent Island. My biggest trill was riding on the boat to within 20 meters of the buffalo! I'll definitely be back again soon.

You can experiment a rare thing in Kenya: walking with wildlife. You go there by boat and then a guide walks with you around a vast area where you can be up close with giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, all sorts of birds, including pelicans and the beautiful African Fish Eagle, among others.... I highly recommend!!! The only problem I see is... More

This is definitely not to be missed. Where else can you walk among safari animals with no fear of predators and no chance of getting lost? Crescent Island is where they filmed the safari scenes for Out of Africa, so they stalked the island with safari animals. We were able to get 10 feet away from giraffes and as close... More

Do the walking safari and what an experience walking 10 feet away from giraffes. Saw a python and eagles catching its prey, a very unique experience not to be missed.

Walking around, we found a family of Giraffes coming to see us. We saw a fox chasing a rabbit, which hid in a hole. It was well priced and a truly memorable experience. I would recommend it to everyone. I wish I'd spent more time here.

This is a beautiful island where you can walk around and get close to giraffes, zebras and more. (Island where Out of Africa was filmed)

Very nice place to visit and have a picnic amongst friendly animals and stay there for the day... Otherwise, it is overpriced for what it is and discriminatory prices applies. Avoid it if you can !! Go to the sanctuary Farm (apx 20 km further) or Hell's Gate national park nearby.
