From the moment we were put in contact with Australken, we felt well taken care of. A family member of ours recommended the company after they had taken a safari with two children and had a wonderful time. Zippy, the coordinator, provided us with a beautiful itinerary, thoughtfully planned and executed. By nature we are adventurous travellers. In fact, I... More

My friend and I booked two separate Nairobi excursions (Bomas of Kenya and Nairobi Day sightseeing) and we were thrilled with the service. Zippy made all the arrangements and was simply fantastic. She tailored made the excursions to meet our requirements. The prices were very reasonable. Our pick-ups were on time and we travelled in very comfortable vehicles. All the... More

The Certificate of Excellence awarded to Australken Tours is your first clue to the outstanding nature of this safari company. Helpful, dependable, and professional are some of the adjectives which come to my mind from my recent experience. Zippy is the real deal. She made sure everything was perfect for our trip and had a super, positive attitude. Simon our... More

My boyfriend and friend had an amazing trip! Zippy, the hands on owner, helped us plan exactly how we wanted. She even met us at the airport to both greet us and say good bye. She even came to see us half way through our 2 week safari while we were back in Nairobi for the night, taking our extra... More

The genuine care and professionalism displayed throughout the trip were outstanding. Food... More

We have been in Kenya in September 2015. Zippy was extremely helpful even before begining (she helped us with arranging visas). On the safari: Food great (important for some of you - we are vegetarian and during seven days we enjoyed everyday some new delicious food - thank you, John); Symon (the only Polish guide in Africa) - best guide...

She sent me a customized plan we talked about together during several days. She understood what I wanted to do during this trip and gave me a competitive proposal. She was quick to... More

We had great cook Weston and amazing driver and guide Simone. Every day we started right on time and finished even later than agreed. So we had... More

It was our first visit to Kenya (and to Africa). We always travel independently, not relying on travel companies so I was a little hesitant trying to choose safari tour operator. We are so glad we went with Australken. First, it took me many emails trying to choose the "right" parks for our safari. There is so much to choose... More

Fantastic experience! It was the very first visit to Africa and first safari experience to all four of us. Being an independent budget traveller I generally avoid organised tours. This time however organised safari seemed the most reasonable option- and I did not regret it! Zippy was very quick to respond and tailored the safari for us. The prices for... More
