          Quite professional and organised team bravo
          We planned a business trip with our staff, and colleagues, at first it seemed challenging to arrange the trip, so we tried different operators in Kenya for about 1 month of planning with no success. We were referred to Ole Safaris by my friend who has had a safari with them. The planning was smooth, every day we would wake up to find an update on the progress we discussed price options and we came to a conclusion, we had a team from overseas, and airport transfers and hotel arrangements went quite well. I would like to thank the whole team for their contribution to the success of this trip. We had a 6-day visit to Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, and Masai Mara which were very promising our guide was perfect and very experienced, and we saw lots of wildlife. Arrangements for dining at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden were made very well. We are definitely planning to come back again in July for Masai Mara and visit the Carnivore restaurant.

          Highly recommended!
          We were one week with Richard in the most amazing places (Masai Mara NP, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru...). It's impossible not to fall in love with Kenya admiring all the wild animals, the beautiful landscapes and the friendly people. And even better if you have such a great guide as Richard. He showed so much enthusiasm (always smiling, even at 6:00 a.m.) and shared a lot of interesting information about the animals, making this trip an unforgettable experience. And he is also a really good driver, he drove safe and we almost didn't notice the 'African massage' of the streets :) – We had worries while booking with ole Kenya tours but we took the risk to try them, the quote and responses while booking were very perfect and timely. We highly company though small I would really recommend it.

          A Brilliant trip to Masai Mara reserve Accommodation good, food excellent, guides good.
          All arrangements made on line comfortably from home. Tavernsolia Prime Safaris & Tours (K) gave the best suggestions for the trip we wanted. Transport to parks went perfectly. We saw all the animals on our wish list, guides wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Accommodation good, food excellent. Even gave us the best weather . I have no enough to to explain my experience with Tavernsolia Prime Safaris & Tours (K) i would rec-comment them for your safari to kenya.

          Wonderful safari experience
          This was our first experience in a safari and we chose, plan started when we found kenafric tours and travel on facebook. We had a 5 days safari Kenya .We think that the support Kenafric Tours and Travel gave us was excellent from the very first day when we ask a quote via email. All of them have always been very helpful. Since day 1, when we landed at Jomokenyatta Airport, we realised that our guide tony was a great person. During our 5 days safari tony was amazing: good driver, excellent (and very patient) in spotting animals, very knowledgeable about nature/animals, an incredibly nice person and always ready to help us in case we needed. Last but not least, we had a lot of fun together. Summarizing, we definitely recommend Kenafric Tours and Travel for your safari in Kenya

          1-day Amboseli Safari - Read before travelling alone
          I recently flew to Nairobi to attend a conference and decided to squeeze in a safari whilst I was over there. I looked online for recommended 1-day safaris from Nairobi and found Kenafric Tours via I contacted them via email and they replied promptly confirming Amboseli as a good choice for a 1-day safari with a strong chance of 'seeing the big 5' in a day. I was picked up from my hotel (Windsor Golf) at around 6.30am by my driver, Josef, who was late due to Nairobi traffic. Josef was not overly friendly but nice enough. My vehicle was quite large (seated 8) but did look like two cars had been welded together (the norm for Kenya I think!). When we set off Josef said it was a good 4-hour drive to Amboseli, I was told when booking it would be 2.5 hours. I decided to have a nap to pass the time but was woken when my door was opened by a gentleman asking for my bank card in the center of Nairobi, I had to check with Josef what was going on and he explained I needed to pay for the safari now so I handed over my debit card. I was then told there would be an extra charge for using my debit card (about 17USD) which I wasn't told about when booking. The gentleman also nearly forgot to hand back my card after giving me my receipt until I quickly pointed out he needed to give it back... We made another stop in Nairobi at a petrol station and my driver bought me 6 bottles of water as promised as included in the safari package before heading out of the center and onto the East African highway, or Mombasa road as it's known. This is a dangerous road for many reasons (google it) and I started to feel a little unsafe especially passing military vehicles and having to go about 5mph over the speed humps at each village. Kenyan driving is by far the most dangerous I've come across in my travels so far. When we were nearing the Tanzanian border my driver suddenly pulls into a small settlement and tells me to get out as it was our only stop for a toilet break before Amboseli. I didn't really want to get out but before I could say anything my driver was off! I followed him and he pointed out the direction of the lady toilets and disappeared. The toilets were as you would expect but had toilet roll which was a bonus. When I came back out I couldn't find the driver and felt intimidated by the locals who were just watching me. A local, called Steve, approached me and asked me to look in his shop whilst I waited for Josef to come back. Steve assured me Josef would be having a coffee. I looked around the shop and bought a wooden elephant, partly because I felt I had to buy something and also because it was made from a lovely wood. Once I'd bought my elephant Josef reappeared and we got back on the road. The last part of the journey was on a dusty track. Josef drove very fast and I was bounced all over the place. I asked him why we were going so fast as I started to feel sick and a little worried the car might breakdown but he explained it reduces the vehicle skidding. We finally arrived at the Amboseli park gates at around 1030am and my driver got out and went inside with the rangers, assumingly to sort out our entrance tickets, whilst I waited in the vehicle. As soon as he was out of sight, a Massi tribe surrounded my vehicle pleading for me to open a door or window and trying to get me to buy items they had made. I kept saying no thank you but they were desperately starting to try and open my doors which were fortunately locked. I felt very afraid, being a girl on my own and not really knowing what to do or where my driver was. Josef eventually appeared and the tribe left. I told Josef I didn't like being left alone with the Massi people but he said nothing. We entered the park and Josef opened the roof. It felt amazing having a 360 view of the park and we saw Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Antelope, Hippos, Elephants and Flamingos. I had forgotten my binoculars which would have really helped as some animals were far away, unfortunately Josef said he didn't have any spare. Seeing Elephants so close made my trip. You can see Mount Kilimanjaro too, although often cloudy, but still amazing. The Amboseli name relates to the frequent mini dust tornados and you see them all over the park. We made our way to the Ol Tukai Lodge for lunch and I was nervous as to what to expect. As we neared the lodge it felt like a little oasis and I was pleased it felt safe and secure. Josef pulled up at the front and a lady escorted me into the lodge, I asked Josef if he was coming too and he said he’d meet me in there shortly. The lodge was beautiful and the staff were lovely and I was pleased to finally see other tourists, most seemed to be staying at the lodge which I would highly recommend. I was seated for lunch overlooking zebra and hippos which was just amazing. Lunch was a buffet and had a variety of hot and cold options, I only had to pay for my drink as lunch was included in the safari package. After lunch I sat watching the animals hoping Josef would find me but eventually went looking for him. I couldn’t find him and the staff assured he wouldn’t be able to leave without me so I sat at the bar for awhile. Josef eventually appeared after having a nap in the car after his lunch. We left for our last game drive and I said to Josef I was keen to get back on the road home before it got dark (I was really nervous about the journey home at night). I asked if we could see the lions as that was the animal I was most hoping to see but Josef said that because it was hot in the afternoon they would be in the shade of the bushes which was a shame. We headed to the park gates to leave and again Josef left the vehicle and went into the office with the rangers. The Massi people surrounded my vehicle again but this time my roof was left open. To discourage them trying to get in I handed out all my remaining water bottles, money and random things in my bag like chewing gum. They are desperate to take anything they can get and clearly rely on the tourists. Josef finally reappeared and we started the long journey home in the dark. I spent the four-hour drive trying to hide myself in the center of the vehicle so not to draw any attention to myself, I did feel vulnerable being a girl alone and there was lots of traffic at every village as all the vehicles slow to go over the stone speed humps. As we eventually neared my hotel, Josef began telling me he would miss me and that I must come back and stay with him. I said I would to ensure he took me to the hotel there and then. I arrived at the hotel at about 10.00pm and I felt so relived to finally be safely there. The next day on my way to the airport with my companies trusted taxi man, Sam, I explained my safari trip. He was really upset for me and explained that he would have been able to take me to a closer park, less than 2 hours away, and we would go with the rangers off road to see all the animals and you have a guaranteed chance of seeing lions etc. It would also have been a lot cheaper. Kenya is a dangerous place for a girl to be travelling alone and my trip with Kenafric Tours made me feel helpless and exposed which ultimately ruined my safari experience. Amboseli is too far to go from Nairobi in one-day, Nairobi national park would have been much better. Amboseli is amazing but would be far more enjoyable staying in the lodge for a few days and travelling as a group with a reputable company.
