“The best Safaritour ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

My family and I have been the 3rd time in Kenya. We have done 3 Safaris but the best one was with Tanke Tours. We went to Amboseli and to Tsavo-East and Tsavo-West. The lodges weren't expensive and the quality was very good.

Caroline met us at our hotel in Nairobi. We drove together to Amboseli and we saw a lot of animals. We stayed there at Amboseli Serena Lodge. It was a wonderfull lodge. We stayed in Amboseli two nights than we drove to Tsavo-East. We stayed at Voi Lodge. It was also very beautiful there. The rooms of the Lodge were very big and excellent.

Caroline could answer all the question we asked her and she was very nice to us.

I suggest Safaris by Tanke Tours!

We love you Caroline

“Brilliant Safari and trips organised by Caroline of Tanke tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

We went on a 4 day safari to Tsavo east, Tsavo west and Amboseli fantastic prices excellent service from both Caroline and Julius, our driver. We stayed at Voi safari lodge and Sentrim Amboselli they are both excellent but the jewel in the crown is The salt lick lodge, absolutely superb location and stunning views. Great food and accomodation at all the lodges. Only down side is the travelling very bumpy roads/dirt tracks and long journeys but all worth it in the end. Also do the trip to Halle park, well worth a visit and great value with Caroline.

“Excelent service with Caroline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011

We booked a 2 day Safari Tsavo east and west and next 2 trips (Mombasa + bush tour and Kisite marine park) via internet at Tanke Tours - Caroline. The contact per e-mail with Caroline was good, nice and fast. We met the day before our first Tour to Safari, she visited us in our hotel in hotel gate. She organised everything perfectly.
The Safari was super, with Samuel he was excelent driver. He is very kind and also himself interested in the animals.
I can only recommend Tanke Tours as the best company for trips in Kenya. Caroline is fantastic and best friend for your holiday !!!

“First class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

My son and I booked our trip to Masai Mara from the UK through Tanke Tours. The total cost is cheaper than booking trhough a UK travel agent. The only difficulty was sending the tour company in Kenya advance booking fees as they do not have a safe web page for making direct payments and bank transfer charges were exeptionally inflated by our own bank in then UK. So at the end we decided in agreement with Tanke Tours to pay over there in cash, on arrival.

We paid for a complete package that included picking up from the airport, transfer to a hotel in Nairobe for overnight stay, picking up from the hotel in the morning and transfer to the local airport for a flight to the Masai Mara, Porinis Lion Camp stay for two nights, and picking us up from the local airport and transfer to the international airport.

The arrangement with Tanke Tours worked very well and Caroline, their representative who dealt with us was both friendly and efficient in performing her work.

The only recommendation I shall make to Tanke Tours is to forewarn their clients that dollar bills before the year 2000 are not accepted by them. Luckily I had with me 300 additional reserve dollars. But apart from this minor unexpected situation we had an overall exellent service from Tanke Tours and we would recommend them to prospective travellers to Kenya.

“perfectly organised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2010

We booked a 4 day Safari and 3 day trips via internet at Tanke Tours. The contact with Caroline was really nice. We met the day before our first Tour, she visited us - as proposed - in our hotel. She organised everything perfectly, even recognised that one tour was on my birthday so she surprised me with a cake.

The Safari was lovely, with Patrick we had a really nice driver. He is very kind and also himself interested in the animals. He managed to show us almost everything.

I can only recommend Tanke Tours. By taking a Kenyan agency for your safari you are doing a good thing anyway.
