Travelled to Diani Beach, Mombassa Sept 2011. Cannot recommend Doc at Kenyan Adventures & Beyond Safaris enough. We have never been on safari before and never been to Kenya although it has been on the 'bucket list' for many years now. Based on Trip Advisor forums, we took the plunge, emailed a few locally based Safari companies. Doc at Kenyan Adventures & Beyond Safaris, emails came back promptly and he answered all of our many questions politely and with patience. We were a little worried about transferring such a large some of money to a Kenyan bank- but again consulted the forums and sent the funds. We need not have worried, we were sent a receipt immediately and our safari confirmed.
We travelled to Mombassa from Zanzibar, which incidently is stunning, and met with Doc at his office on the main beach road at Diani. His driver picked us up from our hotel and returned for both this meeting and for our safari. We flew from Ukunda Airstrip directly to the Masai - Doc recommended and booked us into the Governor Main Camp. This is absolutely the most amazing place and our experience here along with the Balloon safari (again booked by Doc) was a once in a lifetime unforgettable experience.
However, for us, the best bit was because Doc is a local company his clients i.e. us - were offered a free upgrade to The Governors Private Camp, unbelievable!!!
We had the most amazing safari, Doc and his colleagues at Kenyan Adventures & Beyond Safaris are professional, courteous and the price we got was really competitive, especially next to the price we were quoted at our UK travel agents.
Book your safari locally, it has to help the local economy and lets face it who knows better, the girl at the desk in Thomas Cook or a local Kenyan who has been in business for many years. We cannot thank Doc and the team enough and we would certainly come back and recommend them to everyone!
