We began our journey across the equator, through the Great Rift Valley into the Masai land. First was the afternoon game drive. Upon entering the Masai Mara, we saw herds of buffalos, smaller elands, impalas, gazelles, zebras, giraffes, elephants and a few ostriches. We were ecstatic but we had no idea what the night had in store for us. As... More

Wonderful safari in Tsavo in March 2017. John, our guide, told us he was an expert in tracking and spotting leopards. These animals are usually so elusive that we didn't have high expectations about seeing them during the day, but on our first day we saw one, and another one, 10 meters away from our car on the second day!...

We just came back from a 3 day, 2 night, safari to Masaai Mara with Silas as our guide. Robert was very easy to reach and managed to get us on safari the next day. Silas was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend the tour and this company. We will be using them again!

My 2 friends and I had a great tour with Explorer Kenya. Robert was easy to coordinate all aspects of the trip with and was extremely flexible with making modifications. David was our tour guide and he and his trusty Lola(his Land Cruiser) were great. We saw the Big Five and much more and had a great time together. Only... More

Hi Kelly, thanks for the great review and sorry about the radio, the technician was supposed to install it right before your safari but he was not available to do so. We have now installed it so David will have an easier time spotting wildlife! More

Two friends and I did the 3 day/2 night Nairobi to Mombasa safari and had a great time. Our guide Moses was polite, prompt, and well informed about the landscape, animals, and history. He was also patient with our picture and video taking. Highly recommend the company for this or any other safari tour.
