I chose this trip based on the 5 star hotels but spoke to the staff at unike before booking as I was concerned about my father aged 85. They failed to advise that almost every day there were very long (12 hours some days) on poor roads at speed which was a serious problem for my fathers health. Even the pickup at the initial hotel was mis-managed and caused a half hour delay into rush hour and then a knock effect! The Transfer to Tanzania was poorly mamaged - the guide in Tanzania was awful - perpetually kept us waiting - talking to his friends on phone and not concentrating on driving only interested in taking us to jewellery shops talked about himself all the time - was scruffy and insolent We complained to Unike but have not received an substantive reply.

We do a great deal of traveling, but have never ventured to Africa so we were a bit apprehensive. We booked AUS' higher end, 6 day Kenya/Tanzania trip and added a day to include Lake Nakuru with a bonus of a stop at Lake Naivasha. Though we went in April (part of the wet season), we had fine weather and ample opportunity to spot every specie you can imagine. Paul, Eunice and Purity were wonderful in tailoring the tour to suit our needs and preferences were always quick to respond no how many inquiries I had submitted. The 4 lodges (Sarova Lion Hill, Sarova Mara Game Camp, Serengeti Sopa Lodge and Ngoro Ngoro Sopa Lodge) we stayed at were all lovely, each providing a unique experience whether it was monkeys on our patio in the mornings, giraffes wandering around just outside out window or the experience of a tented camp. Each lodge was also strategically chosen by AUS to keep up close to the entrance of, or well within the parks allowing for ease of access to the game drives each morning. Our 2 guides had very different styles. Kennedy, who goes by Ken (9 yrs experience), was very methodical in how we'd traverse the parks. He seemed to get a feel for our preferences immediately and just stuck to that plan the whole way through. We were truly sorry to part ways at the end of our Kenyan portion. He was absolutely wonderful. In Tanzania, we were met by our new guide, Saba (12 yrs experience). He took a very different approach. He was very well informed and often moved at his own pace which, at first, was a bit frustrating for us. But by the 2nd day, it became clear that his personal pace was a reflection of his knowledge of the landscape. He knew the specific territories of the individual animals that inhabited the park so would bypass some of the more open, empty spaces at higher speeds. However, when we asked him to slow down, he did accommodate our request. I'd suggest that he should probably lay off of the personal cell phone calls/texts a bit though. They were nearly constant. I'll share one specific story about Saba because I don't want to leave the reader with the impression that he's a lesser guide. All of the guides share information on sightings to help support their industry. The leopard is one of the hardest animals to observe. When word came over the radio that there was sighting several kilometers away, there was a mad dash by all trucks to reach that point. Saba shouted "Shortcut!" and motioned to the caravan to follow him off into the middle of the plains, seemingly in the wrong direction and no one took him up on it. We were starting to become dismayed as it felt like we were being taken away from the location for quite some time. He took a few obscure turns and minutes later, we were pulling up to the leopard sighting. We waited and he positioned us perfectly as the leopard crossed right in front our our truck. We continued to watch the leopard as it strolled off. Several minutes after the leopard had disappeared, the other trucks from the caravan finally arrived having missed it all. I would highly recommend this company. The price was fair, the accommodations were excellent, the service was wonderful and the sightings were plentiful. This was a life-long goal of mine and AUS helped me to fulfill it and then some.

My husband and I did a Safari tour this February from Narobi to Mombassa. We have really enjoyed it. Plenty of wildlife, wonderful lodges. The tour were very well organized. Francis is a great driver and spotter. He was very friendly, helpful und considerate. We would highly recommend this trip.

Of all the safari companies my wife and I looked at, we ended up choosing Africa Unike Adventures & Safaris based on price, itinerary, and lodging. We ended up being really happy with them. There was a small issue with payment (something to do with currency exchange involving our respective banks), but Eunice, the owner of the company, did not make a big deal about it, which for weary travelers at the end of a long adventure, was much appreciated. Eunice herself was generally very kind and helpful, and the company allowed us to substitute a lodge that we wanted to stay in with one they had originally suggested at no additional charge, so that was also very nice. Our driver and safari guide was Henry, and I would highly recommend him if he is available. That's who we had, and we thought he was great. Super knowledgable, seemed to know everyone, and was willing to go out of his way to find all the different animals, even the harder-to-find ones like the jaguar and rhino. He was also always willing to answer our ignorant traveler questions about not just the wildlife, but Kenya, the people, the culture, and everything in between. We did a 4-night safari to Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, and Maasai Mara (2 nights here). I would also highly recommend this trip. Nakuru is a small National Park surrounding a beautiful lake. The small size of the park meant that we were able to see a bunch of animals in a short period of time. There is no game drive in Naivasha, although included in this safari is a boat trip on the lake to do bird watching and hippo hunting. The lake is beautiful around sunset. Finally, Maasai Mara is huge, and provides that classic African safari experience. So definitely a must do. The one downside was that our trip also included a drive up to Lake Bogoria to see the flamingos, which are becoming harder and harder to find. I would definitely skip this because the drive is long and you can barely see the flamingos, so it was the one aspect of the trip that we thought was really not worth it. Otherwise, everything was excellent. For accommodations, we loved the three places we stayed. Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge is a relatively new place that is built up on a hill with gorgeous views overlooking the lake. Watching the sun rise over the lake from our porch was especially beautiful. Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge was spectacular in a different way—here, there is a bunch of game that literally walks around on the hotel grounds. You even need a chaperone to take you to and from your room at night because there are hippos grazing out on the lawn. As I said, there was no game drive here, but the game came to us so it was a nice substitute. Finally, in Maasai Mara we stayed in the Sarova Mara Game Camp. We wanted a tented experience, and this seemed like one of the better ones. It was definitely nice, had the best food, great staff, really nice tents with good showers, and it was actually in the park. I'm sure there are probably other places that are equally as good or better, but we were very happy with the three places we stayed. Finally, the price for 4 nights was about $1400 USD per person, which included the game drives, all the food/lodging, the boat trip on Naivasha, and a lunch buffet at Carnivore in Nairobi on the last day. Overall, we thought the price was worth it. Most of the safaris we looked at were between $1200-$1800, so this seemed reasonable compared to other companies. All in all, I would highly recommend booking a safari through Africa Unike Adventures. Don't forget to ask for Henry!

My partner and I worked with Eunice and Africa Unike to coordinate our first safari. The 6 day/5 night adventure was absolutely superb. The options presented were very thorough and gave us excellent choices and exceptional value. We ended up choosing a mid-range option with the land cruiser (it was the same price as the upper range option with a bus) because the accommodations seemed more authentically African and not like a US hotel. It was the right choice! First, the land cruiser option is superior to the van. If you get the chance, request Francis as your guide--he's THE BEST! We visited Amboseli, Aberdare, Nakuru, and Maasai Mara. All of the accommodations were great with The Ark at Aberdare being particularly magical. The overall level of service was exceptional. This company will create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you at an incredible value.
