Recently returned from our holiday to Kenya - this was our 4th visit and again we booked our safari with Julius of JT Safaris (JT(Julius Tact) / Julius Nzumbi) as always the service we received from Julius was exceptional, we stayed at Little Governors in the Masai Mara - was amazing - thank you Julius - will hopefully be back again next year.

“Brilliant Safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We returned from Kenya September 29th 2013 and would like to convey our sincere thanks to JT safaris for a wonderful experience. We opted for the 2 day 1 night safari at Tsavo east national park. We stayed at the Voi safari Lodge which was also exceptional, especially overlooking the elephants at the waterhole while having dinner and breakfast. Our driver for safari was Abdul who ensured our experience was one we would never forget. He was very knowledgable and showed great commitment to his work. One of the differences between JT safaris and other companies offering safaris (including Thomsons), is that JTs you travel in your own private jeep and considering some of the stories from other travellers whereby there are between 6 - 8 people in a jeep, this is invaluable. Would definitely return to Kenya and definitely use JTs again. Thanks again :)

“The Highlight of our holiday!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We contacted Julius before travelling to Kenya as our Son and his Wife had recommend him to us as they had such a great experience on safari two years earlier.
I emailed Julius to tell him we were coming to Kenya and wanted to go on Safari, he got back to me almost straight away, with ideas of places to stay, arox prices etc, after a couple of emails we arranged to meet him at his office to discuss our safari arrangements.
He is such a lovely, friendly man, he sorted out exactly what we wanted, a private safari just for the two of us.
And WOW what a safari, it was the high light of our holiday, made so special by his amazing team.
A special mention for our guide and driver Teto, what a lovely man, one of the big six!
We stayed at Satao camp in Tsavo east, what an amazing camp it is. We were given the best tent, Sala, the location was perfect, the staff were really friendly, and the food was brilliant
At Tsavo west we stayed at Saltlick, this also is fantastic, we were given a really good room over looking the watering hole where you could just sit and watch the animals come and go.
It seems that Julius and his team are so highly regarded that you get really looked after where ever you stay. An added extra, Julius phoned us whilst on safari to make sure we were completely happy, what a lovely thoughtful thing to do.
As you can tell we had such a fantastic time, when we got back to the resort we could not praise them enough, we told many people to go to them, Don't bother with the rest, book with the best!!.
We will be going back next year, to go on another safari, with Julius and team, which we have already spoke to Julius about.
We can't wait!!
Thank You again
Chrissie and Dave!

“FANTASTIC ! Fulfilled all our dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This safari was booked as a treat for my daughter's 18th & my 50th so we wanted to make sure we got it right! Luckily we booked with JT Safaris and that was the right thing to do rather then go with the Tour Operator who we booked our flight and main resort hotel with. We stayed at Diani Sea Resort which was perfect too, will leave a separate review on this.
I orginally emailed Julius back in January of this year and after tons of research on tripadvisor reading other reviews took the plunge and booked with JT in the July. Julius confirmed our lodges and asked for a deposit... now needless to say sending money to someone you have never met abroad is not usual behaviour for me and i can honestly say i was aprehensive!

I can now say what a lovely man as he works on trust which works both ways... you trust him and then he trust you to pay the balance of your safari AFTERWARDS even giving you a taxi to the bank which waits to bring you back so you dont have the added worry of carrying a large some of money.

Our driver Becka was brilliant and could see animals which we were going where? he would then lend us his binoculars, we never felt in danger as it was just me and my daughter although be prepared for early mornings! We saw all the animals except the Rhino and fell in love with the elephants! We booked 5days, 4nights visiting Tsavo East, Tsavo West, Amboseli and Saltlick. Our favourite place was Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge & Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, Saltlick was amazing for the elephants! We also booked with JT to go to Haller Park and this was also worth a visit to feed the giraffles!

Would i go again? You bet. Would i book with JT again? You bet. Did i want to come home? NO! I loved Kenya and the people who have so little, are so friendly.

“Thank you Julius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We have just come back from Kenya and thanks to Julius and his team we had an amazing time. Having read the reviews about JT Tours on tripadvisor we decided we would try him everybody could not be wrong. It was the best decision we could of made. We opted for the two night 3 day safari in Tsavo East and West which we booked in England before arriving in Kenya through emails to Julius which were answered promptly and professionally we sent a small deposit to secure the booking. We were staying at the Diani Sea Resort and Julius had just opened some new offices 2 minutes if that from the hotel. We had arranged a meet up day and went through the final details. On the morning of the Safari our driver Matches (also known as the Captain) arrived in a 4x4 Ice box in the front and off we went. The first night was spent at the Voi camp in Tsavo East very good accommendation and food. The second night was spent in Severin camp in West Tsavo amazing camping out in five star luxury listening to the animals munching just outside your tent, don't worry you are safe. We were lucky we saw 4 of the big 5 the Rhino's did not want to play. The captain was so knowledgeable and quick at spotting the animals his eyesight is amazing. I cannot recommend JT Tours enough. We are hoping to go back to Kenya to do the Masai Mara and Julius is the only company I would book with. Once again Juius and the team thank you hope to see you next year.
