This was my fifth visit to Kenya, but first to the Masai Mara and 1st with my 17yo son. I chose Explorer Kenya for my safari as John Kariuku has been my driver in Kenya the last 4 trips and I have nothing but high praise for John! I have complete trust that John will safely take me wherever I... More

From my first inquiry, Robert's been very helpful and promptly responded to me email. When my flight to Nairobi got canceled, he flexibly adjusted my tour schedule for... More

Kenya is a mixture of breath taking beauty, Seussical fun and nonstop adventure! I have been to Kenya many times and the staff at Explorer Kenya is top notch. John and Michael are usually my drivers. 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

Robert is just perfect. He organized everything for me in a such short notice, and everything went super well...very good price and support. Moses did pick me up at the airport on time and drove me to the Masai Mara. He was the perfect mate to travel, always willing to explain all Kenya's culture and specially the "traditions". Very friendly,... More

This was a breath-taking experience riding around the Masai Mara and visiting the animals. Even when no animals were in view the landscape was in itself a beautiful view. It was truly a spiritual experience - the magnificence of nature. Everything about the experience was perfect. Dennis Waweru, my driver, was incredibly knowledgeable about the animals, birds, bugs, terrain -... More

Great tour, very safe and worth every penny in Masai Mara. Our guide Simon was a very very good spotter and my wife and I felt safe at all parts of the journey. We were often first to wildlife and he was very patient and knowledgeable. His knowledge didn't stop at the safari as the journey back was looking tough... More

I booked a budget Safari with Explorer Kenya, I expected a 4 days, 3 nights tour together with 6 other people but when I got picked up it turned out that I was the only customer the first day, the second day we picked up another customer but we had kind of a private trip. I got a driver named... More

I did a week's safari in Feb 16 and it was one of the best trips I have done and I can certainly recommend Explorer Kenya. Robert was very quick at replying to enquiries and put together a package I was very happy with. As a woman travelling on my own I hoped that my guide would be someone I... More
