I have had the pleasure of being in Kenya twice, once in 2011 and once in 2013, and both times David was our driver and guide. We were cared for at all times, always felt safe, and whether on safari or driving in the middle of a town or somewhere in between, David had lots of information about animals, geography and the cities and towns around us. If you want a place to eat, a local market to shop in, information about that crazy bird over in the field...David had it all together! He will follow your budget and your preferences. I would recommend him to everyone! Thank you, David--you're the BEST!

In the summer of 2009, I was lucky enough to travel with Hearts for Kenya (a non-profit in Louisville, KY) on a the trip of a lifetime (cliche but true). David was our driver for the duration of our trip. He knew EVERYTHING about the area we served and even more about the safari experience we had. We saw SO many animals, learned A TON about the land, the animals and David is very knowledgeable about birds if that's your jam. You can feel SAFE with David and his crew and confident that they'll give you the best experience there is! A few years later in September 2013, my parents were interested in going on a safari. I never hesitated to recommend them to David and although they do not have an account, I can tell you they also would speak highly. They were taken care of from the time they landed until they were safely back at the airport. Reasonably priced for an UNREAL experience! Kudos to David and his team, YOU ALL ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE!

Been on many types of holiday and one that I had yet to do was a safari in Africa. To see the African Big Five was definitely something I wished to encounter and what an experience we had when we came here on holiday. This was made all the more remarkable by our Tour company, and in particularly our driver, David. Not to mention what a pleasant man he was, David was very accomodating to our needs and wishes. The real great thing about this was their knowledge of the safari parks and when and where to spot these wonderful animals. A dream come true that we actually saw all the big 5 as they say - the highlight being the Pride of Lions on their food hunt. Fantastic!!! and thank you very much David.

I have just spent 3 weeks travelling Kenya with Discover African Trails, owned by Isaac and David. Going on a safari in Africa has been on my wish list for a very long time and it was worth the wait. Isaac helped us plan our custom-made itinerary. His suggestions, organisational skills and expertise were excellent. David our guide made this trip so memorable. He is such an experienced guide that can see animals with the naked eye from miles away. We saw so many animals that I believe that we had the advantage every time over the big name companies that run safari tours. David has a great sense of humour but also has the knowledge to answer any questions you may have. He can solve any problem you have. Whether you are young or not so young, I highly recommend Discover African Trails as they go the extra mile to ensure your holiday runs smoothly in every aspect. Isaac and David were so warm and welcoming from go to woe, that I think of them more like family than travel guides. I will be back to travel with them very soon as there is still so much more to explore in their wonderful country, Kenya.

Margmalouf, can't believe the safari is over, it was just the other day I and David met you at the airport, days have rolled out so quickly. We call you Ion ladies, what a remarkable prints you left behind? memorable thoughts in deed. From Day one to the last day David says he learnt new things from you, in Samburu about the Elephants encounter do you still remember?and the Ostrich Dance? David says he can't remember any day he drove miles away in silent, you always kept him engaged all through. You are our most recent clients from Aussi and we Cherish you all. We hope your tour to Kampala for Gorilla Tracking was also good and you enjoyed. Discover African Trails extends its arm and salute you for choosing to travel with them. Looking forward to serve you again. Isaac/David

In 2011, I was very lucky to spend a wonderful trip in Kenya before the name change to Discover African Trails. The day we were met at the airport the welcoming received from Isaac and David set it up for the rest of the trip. Have you ever been asked what your best holiday was, that is always a hard question when you have been to some amazing places, but my response is always Kenya. Why, because of all the wonderful animals seen in their natural habitat and the warmth of Isaac and David. The Big 5 was seen within the first couple of days and then it was continuous animals, so many. David as our tour guide was the best, he has incredible eyesight and would see something in the far distance and then off we would go to explore, he would be more than happy to answer any questions as he has incredible knowledge about wildlife and birdlife. We had so many opportunities for photos and David would generally set the van up in the prime spot for the best photo. The accommodation Isaac suggested was fantastic, such a variety, tented camps wow never had a tent like that before what an experience. I have told my experiences of Kenya to many friends and I plan on returning one day and I know that the only way I would travel around Kenya is with Isaac and David. If you go with Discover African Trails you will have a wonderful trip. Enjoy.....Ahmani06

Ahmani06, 2011 will always remain a memorable year to our company, your two weeks expedition as a team of 7 Aussi's left us rejuvenated and more focused to our future clients. We learnt a lot and we are glad that your memory is still very fresh to a point that one would think that it was just a year ago. I glad that you got your nickname in one of camps you visited during that time which means you had great time with them.Great to hear that you enjoyed. We are glad that you're promising to come back any time in future and all we say is that our arms are wide open to receive you back. Discover African Trails extends its arm and salute's you for choosing to travel with us. "Asante Sana"Ahmani06. Isaac/ David
