Also, he has experiences and information about nature, animals, environments, etc. Although we had some problems about transportation in Tanzania, we changed cars and drivers everyday.

All contact before arrival was with Robert. Robert was very professional and kind throughout - no question was too small, every question was answered thoroughly. We had a safari customized chauffeur-driven van for the last 2 weeks of July. We loved being able to open the top for the safaris at the parks. The van was rugged and roomy. Our... More

My husband and I experienced the safari for the first time and we highly recommend this local TO! We spent six days in the top Kenya's parks/natural reserves (Masai Mara, lake Naivasha, Nakuru, Amboseli) spotting all kind of wild animals and even some lion hunting games. The paradise on Earth. The driver Simon was very experienced and wise. He has... More

My husband visited Kenya for Migration in Jul 2016. Explorer Kenya had arranged everything well for him. Although some of the camps were not really good but still satisfied. The tour guide, John, was nice and friend. My husband was so lucky to see the animals crossing the river. My husband was satisfied with the service in general. The package... More

They are kind, knowledgeable, professional and detail oriented. It's always amazing to me that they know how to get everywhere, they are true explorers... More

I have no words to describe this experience but as surreal ! Robert prompted replied to all my messages and was able to accommodate a safari at very short notice and fair prices. The whole experience was incredible, the Mara, the interaction with the Masai people and their culture, the food, the camping site. Last but not least, my driver... More
