1. Re: Safari with "Jocky Tours and Safaris"

Recently came back from a tour with this company booked from the UK. a bit worried to begin with transfering money etc, However once we arrived everything went fine as promised. The vehicle was OK not the absolute best but more than up for the Job the driver was good (nathanial). Just check what accomadation they are booking you in. Not a problem you can specify were to stay. Make sure you get an confirm what you are doing as they are a bit lax at giving you the itinarary. Would use again. and the price is OK

Just came from a tour to masai mara arranged by jocky tours.

meals are terrible. too many people in one van can't check animals properly.On a our way back we were put into a broken van that drives only maximum 30 kilometers per hour.

Driver wachira was a bit ok but always on his cellphone while driving.

Just came back from the safari which was organized by Jocky Tours and Safaris. I've booked the trip by email from Moscow, payed only 30% in advance and the price was more than reasonable.

I want to express one's thanks to this company. All was amazing and according my programm. Nine days in Kenya was like a dream.

I highly recommend this company.

They help me to decide some problems (Egypr Air delayed flight and lost my luggage). Our guide and driver Nathaniel was matchless - we've seen many intresting places and a lot of animals.

Next time I'll go to safari with Jocky Tours again, I'm completely satisfied.

Thank you Minneh, Nathaniel and Jocky Tours.

My girlfriend and me went on a 3 day Maasai Mara safari with Jocky tours. It was brilliant. We weren't sure whether we wanted to go or not - but we were so glad we did.

Walking around Nairobi we met Tito, a tout who wears a leather cowboy hat. He took us to the Jocky Tours office where a really helpful lady, Minneh described what was on offer. I think we also met the elusive Jocky who was sitting in the corner of the room! We decided an itinerary and arranged to get picked up the next day.

The safari was great. Just as described. Driver was good/safe/friendly and accommodation & food were good, just what we were expecting. Saw lots of animals, everything on offer bar leopard and rhino. So many lions!!!

Thoroughly recommend the company and visiting the National Park.

I also can confirm that Jockytours performs excellent Safari tours. We did a 8 days roundtrip through 5 NPs, lots of game drives. Everythng was great.

Minneh did a great job organizing the roundtrip (communication by email). Nathaniel was our driver - we were always very happy with him.

High recommendation for that company!

Good experience although they changed my itinerary without me knowing until I got there. Also, their van kept breaking down while we were in Kenya. The old saying applies here, you get what you paid for!
