About Lion Rider Tours and Safaris
Lion Rider Tours and Safaris derives its name from a villager who went to the forest to harvest honey on a tree. He was attacked by bees and fell down. In the process, a lion was passing by and the villager ended up falling on him and the lion ran away with John on his back! Meanwhile, some tourists saw him and nicknamed him the lion rider!

We had an opportunity with my family to visit the Maasai Mara. The terrain was quite bad given the rains but Johnson's maneuvering was excellent. The game drive was an amazing experience, Johnson is very calculated with where to find the animals. He is a very skilled and professional Tour Guide/A tour driver. He is very knowledgeable in the field and across other diverse topics. Thank you for such an amazing experience! I recommend him 100% to anyone hoping to travel there.

We had a very nice safari, have seen lots of animals. Johnson had his priorities straight, there was a leopard to see so we rushed to go there and had the perfect shot. But also if a lion was sleeping or hard to see, we would not wait for hours until he woke up or changed position. He had lots of information about everything and was a joyful person in general. It was a great experience

Johnson was our guide for five exciting days in Kenya. He was well organized and a very safe driver. Johnson told us a lot of story and politics of kenya which was super interesting. We would take him again.
