It was amazing to have Mike as our driver for all the days for two weeks. If you are in Kenya or coming to Kenya please look for Explorer Kenya. Thank you John for recommending me to this company. Thank Robert you have a good team

Let me put this into perspective. I have been travelling to Kenya quite regularly over a period of 11 years. When there I do some voluntary work in Nairobi (Kibera and Kawangware) Kisumu and other locations. I don't like driving so hire a van and driver for the 2 weeks. This year I also had my sister and teenage niece... More

Steuart A short but very enjoyable trip into the Masai Mara from Nairobi by Safari Van. Mike our driver was very accommodating, understanding, and importantly he drove conservatively. He stopped when we requested and found the animals in a professional and knowledgable way. Not once did he show irritation at our interminable questioning. The last part of the road trip... More

We spent eight days in Kenya and Tanzania. Our driver in Kenya was John. He is a nice guide has sense of humor. 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. And, didn't know if there would be a new car for... More

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
