My girlfriend and I did about 9 days of Safari I’m southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania. We started in Amboseli, Masai Mara, Serengeti, then Ngorongoro Crater.

We spoke with a few Safari companies but George was the most responsive and worked really closely with us to help plan the trip. We went back and forth on many changes and George was pretty accommodating and helpful overall. He helped us change parts of our trip while we were on Safari as well, which we appreciated.

Both of our drivers on Safari were great. Ken was our driver in Kenya. He’s a big, fun, guy with a good sense of humor and who took us around to find a lot of great sightings. We requested Ken after reading some reviews about him on Trip Advisor. We had heard bad experiences a few people had with driver’s and wanted to make sure we had someone accommodating and knowledgeable. You spend most of your time in the truck with the driver, so it’s important that you all feel at ease and in good company together, otherwise I could imagine it being a miserable experience.

So Ken was great and we really appreciated him and would recommend him if you’re considering a trip. He picked us up for the airport when we flew to Masai Mara from Amboseli, and took good care of us.

In Tanzania we spent more time with our driver Chombuso. Chombuso was a true professional and someone we felt very secure with, safe, and taken care of. You can tell he really loves the animals and he went above and beyond to make sure we got some really amazing shots and up close looks at animals, we definitely recommend Chombuso when in Tanzania.

We had the trio of a lifetime, we stayed at Elewana properties and got the 10% discount, and then stayed at Neptune in Ngorongoro with was amazing. We booked luxurious places which made the experience really nice.

Overall with our trip the only issues and drawbacks were with the Safari vehicles and things that didn’t align with what George had told us. The land cruiser vehicles were overall in good shape, but missing WiFi, a working cooler/refrigerator, and A/C.

These weren’t major issues, but you do spend 90% of your time inside the vehicles, so the small things make a big difference. Being able to store cold drinks and maybe a few beers would have been really nice while on safari. It would have been nice to have WiFi as well - but that wasn’t as big of a concern, but since we were told we would have it, it was slightly disappointing. The A/C on a few occasions would have been nice, when the roof wasn’t open and we weren’t on Safari. But overall wasn’t a big complaint.

So overall it didn’t have a big impact on the experience, but also shouldn’t be promised unless those things are actually included. Make sure you get clear confirmation they are included if those things are important to you, I would ask multiple times and be very specific with George.

We did have the trip of a lifetime using RightChoice, it really was amazing. Drivers were great and the places we stayed were all luxurious and accommodating. We are happy with our decision using RightChoice and would recommend them as a travel guide and booking agency.

Seeing the wildlife of East Africa has been a dream of mine since childhood, and this year Right Choice Tours & Safaris, along with their exceptional guide Kip, made my dreams reality. They helped curate a perfect experience based completely on the criteria and budget that we set. Everything, from lodging to the tour experience itself, was chosen with the utmost care and concern to make our visit one that could only be described as a once and a lifetime event.

Our guide, Kip, made it his mission to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. He deftly maneuvered our trusty Land Cruiser over the varied terrain of the African bushland, giving us intimate and unparalleled views of everything. When I say everything, I mean everything. Within the first 3 days of our 8 day safari, we had checked every one of the Big 5 off of our list, even the ever elusive leopard. Kip's knowledge of the wildlife, terrain and people of East Africa is immeasurable, when we had a question, he had an answer. I could go on for hours regarding his expertise, but what really set him apart was his love of the land. It felt like we were being guided by a friend that was experiencing the trip with us for the first time. This certainly wasn't his "first rodeo" but he had all of the enthusiasm and love of first timers like ourselves. I couldn't recommend him as a guide more, as our trip wouldnt have been the same without him by our side. We couldn't imagine of a more fitting name other than Right Choice Safaris & Tours for this company, as it truly encapsulates how we felt about our experience.

We have chosen to visit Kenya three times before as this beautiful country looks after its wildlife and hunting is not allowed. This time I decided to book our fourth safari through a Kenyan company rather than an international one as I wanted the Kenyans to have the profits after suffering so badly during the pandemic. It was an excellent decision! Everything went smoothly from booking to completion of the holiday. Our driver guide, Joshua, was friendly, knowledgeable and informative and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. We spent 4 nights in the Massai Mara, one in Nakuru and two in Amboseli. We have never seen so many animals before - except in the migration - and we saw so many unique sights: a new born elephant suckling from its mother, a hyena carrying her baby in her mouth, three black rhinos out of the 16 which live in the Mara, 19 giraffes grazing together and three generations of young lions, 16 in all, on a rock, resting or playing, while waiting for their mothers who soon arrived to a stampede of welcome from their cubs! This was the best safari experience we have ever had and I have nothing but praise for George at Right Choice who arranged everything so professionally from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Right Choice to other travellers and rest assured, George, we will be back! Thank you for giving us the chance to make so many unforgettable memories.

We booked 2 safaris, the first was planned with 4 nights and the 2nd with 5 nights (so it said in the mail and was also paid). The first safari went well, we also saw many animals, the guide really tried hard. On the 2nd safari it was then said after the 4th day that tomorrow is the last day. Surprised we said that according to the mail the safari lasts 5 nights and 6 days. Suddenly no one wanted to know anything more about that. After a phone call and SMS to George, he then admitted that there is probably a misunderstanding, he actually meant only 4 nights even if there are 5 nights! Astonished and annoyed, we tried to make it clear to him that we expect 5 nights at this price according to the mail. George wants to know nothing about it and there was also no compensation. The end of the safari was accordingly bad, as we desperately tried to still get accommodation at a reasonable price! Thus, we have now paid an extra night and also the full price - which was for 5 nights. From our point of view, this is pure rip-off. Who books here, must clarify beforehand how many days and nights are included in the booking to avoid nasty surprises. We do not recommend this tour provider (although the guide made a great effort, but the surrounding now clouded everything!).

Dear 36kah, Thank you for your review. All feedback is important to us and we’re sorry to hear you’ve had such a frustrating experience. As you can hopefully see from our other reviews, your situation is the exception and far from our usual high standards and company’s values. You booked two safaris with us, nearly for same duration and paid nearly same price for each segment. We allocated one driver for the two safaris. The first safari went well. The second safari did not end well because you wanted to extend the duration to six against no payment. Surely, why would second safari be a rip off when you had same driver, same tour van and the same lodges as a greed. How would you expect 5 nights safari for the second segment when you paid similar amount like the 4 nights safari. Remember, we offered you a free ride Mombasa train terminus to your resort in Diani, All this was done on complimentary basis. I think this issue was purely on misunderstanding. We understand your disappointment with Right choice and agree that this is not acceptable. This makes us all the more keen to make sure this doesn’t happen again to our future customers..

After a few weeks working in central Kenya, Amy partner and I extended our trip to holiday in Masai Mara and had the pleasure of having Jacob as our guide for the 4 days. We were collected from our hotel in Nairobi and had a very pleasant journey to Fig Tree Camp. The whole trip was incredible a totally different experience from the previous two weeks. We explained to Jacob that we had already seen lots of elephant and rhino and that we only really wanted to see cats.
Everyday the guide went over and above to make sure we saw the animals we wants and we were able to organise our drives as we wished. We opt for an 2 evening drives, a full day and 2 early mornings. We saw over 25 lion, leopard, cheetah, serval and many many more. Do not hesitate to book with this company.

My wife and I spent two weeks on photo safari arranged by Right Choice Tours. Our tour was carefully planned and customized with George Otech 9 months prior. Throughout the process George was very easy to work with and wanting to meet our specific requests. Our tour took us from Lake Naivasha, to Lake Nakuru Np, to Masai Mara, the to Tanzania Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro NP, Tarangire NP then back to Kenya Amboselli NP. . Our accommodations were as promised and some exceeded our expectations (ie, Sopa Lodge Naivaisha, Farm of Dreams ngorongoro, Kibo camp inTarangire NP ) we’re particularly special.

But what truly made safari special was our guides, Mr. Opany in Kenya and Chambuso in Tanzania. They were both extremely knowledgeable of the parks, the animals, the history and were always ready to share their knowledge with us. They used there knowledge to place us in good locations to find, watch and photograph the big five on numerous occasions. The lesser animals and bird life were always present for us to watch and photograph when the big five weren’t there. Of particular note was how we were accommodated during COVID times as George arranged for us to be tested prior to our crossing the border from Kenya to Tanzania then again when returning to Kenya. Our border crossing were relatively easy as both Opany and Chambuso guided us through the process and basically handed us off to the other.

I must say that the roads in most parks are rough and muddy when wet, and rough and dusty when dry making the all day drives a challenge with anyone with a bad back. By the end of the day even the most heathy person will feel the effects of the bouncing and sliding. Right choice land cruisers that we were assigned were a bit old but very serviceable, these are seven seaters but I could not imagine being in a vehicle with more than four.

Thank you George and team for making our time in Kenya and Tanzania so very special. I will undoubtedly call you to plan our next Safari.

Our flights from UK to Nairobi in October 2019 and the Safari lodge on the Masai mara was booked independently however I did use Right choice safari and tours for transportation from the Nairobi to the Masai Mara and the safari game drive for 5 days. The communication was very good between George Oketch and I with a seamless money transfer, George also allowed us to customize our trip which was appreciated

Our Driver/safari guide was John Musa who we thought was very attentive patient and nothing was too much. It took around 4.5 hours to drive to the Keekorok lodge (Masai Mara) which gave us amply time to get to know John and to admirer the beautiful landscape whilst John educating us about Kenya. We stopped for comfort break, money exchange and lunch and just outside the Masai mara reserved we visited the Masai Village. John who was clearly very experience knew the Masai mara reserve like the back of his hands. We saw all the big five and two kills all in one day. Leopard, rhino, lion,elephant, buffalo. Amazing, another day we witness the migration of wilder beast and elephant to the Serengeti.

Thank You so much John for making my 50th birthday memorable and a trip of a life time. I would definitely recommend Right choice and safari and Tours and John Musa

I am so happy that we chose Right Choice Safaris for our 8 day honeymoon trip. Prior to the trip George and Millicent were so responsive and intent on making sure we got everything we wanted out of the trip. We ended up doing a lot of this last minute due to the uncertainty with COVID but they were able to get us reservations in all the camps/lodges that I wanted. They also offered a full refund if something changed last minute and we weren't able to come because of COVID. Luckily, that did not happen and we had the trip of our lives! Joshua, our guide, was absolutely fantastic! He knew tons about the animals and could tell by their behavior whether they were hungry and ready to hunt or were more likely to just relax. This resulted in us getting to see 4 cheetahs hunt and kill an antelope in Maasai Mara, an unbelievable sight! We also caught the wildebeest migration just on time, only having to wait about 20 minutes while others waited all day. There were a lot more highlights but I'll let you see for yourselves! It was a pleasure to spend 8 days with Joshua. He was truly knowledgable, very eager to please, flexible, professional and timely. I highly, highly recommend requesting him as your guide. Right Choice Safaris did an excellent job in making our honeymoon special including having every place we stay decorate our bed with flowers and they even added "Just Married" tire covers to the back of our jeep that were quite a hit with the other guides. Overall: fair price, excellent service, amazing experience.

Right Choice Tours and Safaris was the right choice for us. We planned this trip in 2019 but it was postponed due to Covid. George from Right Choice was excellent with making all arrangements and reassured us that all would be fine when we could travel again and we did so in Sept 2022. Everything was extremely well organised from our pick up at the airport, throughout our 2 week safari, crossing borders etc. Our two driver/guides, Apollo in Kenya and Steven in Tanzania, were exceptional and experienced and ensured that we had the best experiences and the best vantage points for wildlife viewing every day. We were always well informed of our safari plans, travel times, meals etc.
Our vehicles were well maintained and comfortable and the lodges chosen for our accomodation were excellent, well staffed and served high quality food.
We loved everything about our safari.
Thank you George from Right Choice Tours and Safaris and Apollo and Steven for our amazing adventure in Kenya and Tanzania.
You cant go wrong with Right Choice!

Visiting Kenya, we decided to go for Rights Choice Tourism and it was definitely the right choice. Our driver was Jacob, he took more of his time to make sure we enjoyed Kenya and have an insight to everything. Jacob made sure we saw every animal in Masai Mara and he had his mask on the entire trip; a very trustworthy guide, we forgot our goods in the car and he got it for us the next day. The stops we made were The Great Rift Valley, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Masai Village, Giraffe Center, Nairobi. A special thanks to George for making up for any incidents that occurred that weren’t in his hands, he was extremely generous and kind and made sure we enjoyed our trip from A - Z .

Jambo Maryamr, Wow, we are blown away by your positive words, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review! We can’t thank you enough for the kind words about Jacob. He made sure you saw all the animals available in masai mara and lake Nakuru national park. George too never disappointed. He made sure you remained safe and comfortable by choosing great intimate camps for your accommodation in the wilderness. Looking forward to seeing you again soon and thanks again!
