“Dont Safari with anyone else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

What you get is what you cant see. Experience and NO HASSLES. We were on the safari 'circuit' over Christmas 2012 and consequently you meet the same folks at the various lodges as you travel from Samburu on to the Masai etc. EVERYONE BUT US got caught by the weather. We were wondering why our amazing guide/driver was insistent on leaving at a very specific time one day, but when we arrived at our lodge we found out that everyone else was stuck when a bridge washed out. Alecks had the foresight to get ahead of the weather. He was always concerned with our safety and our experience. You've really got to understand you really need to trust these guys with your life - and I'd put Alecks in charge of anything I was doing. I can's speak highly enough of this company - Antony called nearly every day to check that we were happy - c'mon - where else do you get service like that? I don't know how he compares pricewise, but his service is priceless. I know there's already 200 glowing reviews and so why bother adding another one? Its the least I can do for anyone on the fence on who to go with. Ask for Alecks - but I'm certain anyone Antony has working for him must be amazing.

“8 Days (7 Nights): Kongoni Safari.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We took this 8 day trip in the middle of December 2012 and had a wonderful time. Our driver Alex was very knowledgeable (especially about bird life) and helpful.

The trip was very well planned and we saw a wide variety of terrain. The accommodation was excellent and some of the hotels/camps are in truly amazing locations. We were also extremely lucky with animal sightings and saw everything on our "todo" list including 36 different lions :)

I have already recommended to several friends to take this trip, and if I go back to east africa I'd definitely use this company again.

It's probably worth noting that the trip from Maasi Mara to Diani beach involves a 5 hour drive to Nairobi, then a flight to Mombassa, then 2 hour drive/ferry to Diani. If I took this trip again I'd try and fly from Maasi Mara directly to Diani to save myself a days travel.

“Brilliant - Shimba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Faultless. We had a great safari with Alex. We had a jeep to ourselves, so was like a private safari with a roof that lifted so we were 'close to nature'. It was ten times better than the (supposedly) identical safari offered by Thomson, which would not have been in a private Jeep but would have been in a shared mini bus. A tip is to take something to eat for breakfast, luckily we did.
We saw so many animals before lunch (an entire family of elephants, some friendly giraffes, buffalos, warthogs, antelope, baboons, monitor lizards, eagles, kingfisher, etc) that we decided to just go home after lunch - so we spent the afternoon having a massage on the beach - a perfect day. I should also say that as well as seeing all those animals, we did a 4k walk to see a waterfall - we were accompanied by the Park Ranger (who carried a MASSIVE gun) - before having a nice lunch in a hotel/restaurant in the jungle.

On the way home we stopped by the office (just behind our hotel, the Diani Reef Hotel) to say hi to the owner of the company, Antony, who was very friendly and jovial, and who is clearly (and justifiably) proud of operating such an excellent service and having such great staff.

If you're planning on taking in a safari during your stay in Kenya (and surely you will) then I HIGHLY recommend that you go with this company.

“Outstanding family safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Antony provided everything that we asked for and more. We took Panorama Safari (2 night, 3 day Tsavo East and West) with our two kids aged 6 and 8 in April 2012.

Our first visit and we were slightly nervous about arrangements and sending part payment in advance, but everything was organised exactly as we'd asked and we were very well looked after throughout.

Driver/guide was excellent as were the lodges we stayed at. Would highly recommend Kilanguni Lodge for luxury and views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Wildlife Kenya Safaris very good communication and value - paid about the same (per person) for a private Safari as others were charged for large group.

Saw an amazing array of animals (except Rhino), great experiences and fantastic memories for us all. Will definitely use Wildlife Kenya Safaris next time we're in Kenya.

“Tsavo East Safari and Mombasa city tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We are more than happy that we contacted Wildlife Kenya Safaris to take care over our two day private safari by jeep in Tsavo East, and also half day Mombasa trip. Antony answered very fast and servis he provided to us was excellent. Cause we were already in Kenya when final decision what/where to go and see, we communicate with him via sms (cheaper than phone call). As we were directly in Diani beach in Kenya, payment was done by cash directly to him (he arrived with his black salon car to our hotel gate as we agreed). But I wouldn't have fear to pay also via international bank transfer in case no rush. Both trips were great and absolutely professional. Knowledge of guides was amazing and trips went great. We recommend this trip provider and will use it again next time in Kenya. Thanks.
