A rather delayed review for JT Safaris - sorry Julius.
We, a couple, returned from a fortnight’s holiday in Kenya, staying at the Voyager Hotel, Mombasa in September 2013. We booked our safari in advance with Julius Nzumbi of Julius Tact Safaris and we could not have been better served. This is the 4th holiday that we have dealt with Julius (the previous three have been with a family party of 10!) and have never had any problems. All his arrangements have been considerably less expensive than if booked through the travel company or the hotel.
Having made our arrangements while in the UK we sent Julius a deposit - larger than the norm as some safari lodges request payment at booking! We made payment by Post Office International Payments, easy to register, easy to implement, payments are made directly from your own bank account and (most importantly) no charges!! No-one should have any reservations about sending Julius a deposit. He is thoroughly trustworthy and reliable, and he does not expect the balance until your return, satisfied, from safari.
After booking into the hotel we were met, by prior arrangement, when Julius confirmed and finalised our arrangements.
Early on safari day transport arrived punctually to take us to Mombasa airport to fly to Masai Mara for an outstanding and memorable 4-night safari based at the excellent Governors Camp (see our review on Trip Advisor March 2014). During our stay Julius phoned to ensure that there were no problems with our stay. When, at the end of our safari, we returned from the Mara transport was waiting at Mombasa airport to take us back to The Voyager. We met Julius a couple of days later to settle our bill (again by next-day money transfer from the UK) and he gave us a carving each as a memento of Kenya and JT Safaris.
For more information on what can be arranged by Julius in Mombasa, see our review of 12 May 2013.
We cannot speak too highly of JT Safaris. Throughout our stay Julius kept in touch by phone, ensuring that there were no problems (there weren’t!) and that we were happy (we were, very !).
JT - we cannot thank you enough for helping to make our holiday such a memorable one - Asanti Sana and we hope to say “Jambo” again next year. Colin & Maggie.
