“Perfect trip with excellent guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

After getting many quotes from different companies, Robert was the fastest to reply and came back with the cheapest quote. Having read these reviews, it was a no brainer.

Michael (our excellent guide) picked me up from my hotel and drove us to the Maasai Mara where we saw everything we could possibly want and more. He was extremely knowledgeable, reactive to what we wanted to look for, funny, diligent and patient. The camp we stayed in (Mara Sidai) was beautiful and lovely.

Lake Nakuru was different but equally special. Michael continued to impress.

The only thing to be aware of in Kenya is that there is plenty of driving around involved. But the trip was superb.

“Brilliant budget option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Booked a 4-night Masai Mara/Nakuru safari as part of a round-the-world trip so were looking for the best budget option. This was one of the cheapest safaris we could find but that is no reflection on quality. We had a great time and saw everything we wanted to see. The guides could perhaps have been a little more informative but this is true of many African safaris regardless of budget. The camps were a little basic but we feel this added to the experience. We saw all of the 'big five' within two days and much, much more. Efficient and informative correspondence before the trip with (reasonably) on-time pickup from Nairobi. Would definitely recommend for the budget-conscious traveller.

“Great safari with fantastic guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Kenya Safari arranged our 4 night safari in the Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru and we loved every minute! This was the best value safari we could find by far and every element of the trip exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Michael, was passionate and knowledgeable and the accomodation and transport were clean and comfortable. As with all drive in safaris, there was a lot of time spent on the road, so be prepared for a sore bum, but it was all worth it. It's not luxury, but if you're looking for a great value safari then from our experience you can't go far wrong with Kenya Explorer.

“Great customer service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We had to cancel our trip at the last moment due to a medical emergency. Robert Murigi at Explorer Kenya was kind enough to arrange for a refund for us - promptly and courteously - not all the tour operators we have travelled with would show such flexibility and understanding. Really appreciate the gesture and hope to travel with them next time!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a sensational trip to Lake Nakuru & the Masai Mara with Explorer Kenya. The booking procedure was very simple & the office communicated very promptly & clearly. The accommodation was very clean & comfortable, while not 5-star - which you certainly shouldn't expect for the price of these safaris! Our guide, John, was sensational - knowledgeable & friendly, and a very careful & considerate driver. He made sure we saw absolutely everything we could have dreamed of. For the price of these safaris, you can't go wrong!
