Halal Safaris have given me one of the best experiences of my life so far!

We went to Turkey from Kenya in May 2022. I had not experienced their type of group concierge but was willing to try. I'm glad that I did because I got want I wanted from them and more.

The attention to our itinerary details, the personalised care, ensuring we had halaal meals and well organised activities (which could be changed if we requested or preferred something else, so also very flexible) and little touches like letting you know what the weather would be like so you can plan appropriately are just some of the things I enjoyed about the trip with them.

It helped that they had a professional photographer as part of the team to take great photos and videos of me and our surrounding so I can have the memories forever. They were also well researched about the different places we visited including its history, and to add to the experience, where necessary we had an additional local professional tour guide for some of the more historical sites.

I intend to join them again and again and recommend them highly for any group of sisters or families who want that little bit extra.

I had an amazing experience planning my Lamu trip with Halal Safaris. I will ALWAYS recommend them. The team tailored an awesome package for us to suit our budget. We got to experience the sunset Dhow cruise as part of our package as well as tours of both Lamu and Shela Town, including transport between the two towns. Everything felt right and meticulously planned.

I can't wait to book more trips with them!

My daughter and I spent five wonderful days in Shela at the locally owned Moyoni hotel. Lamu has a particular energy, you can breathe the ocean and a centuries-old history. Our guests made us feel pampered and at home, allowing us to understand local life. you loose track of time on the island, the color of the sky, the two cities of Shela and Lamu, the dhows crossing the sea. Samia from Halal Safari has been an amazing and caring organizer, always ready to meet our wishes.

Had the best time during the weekend with my spouse at the Mt.Kenya Regency hotel . The Mountain view from our room was breathtakingly impressive.

NgareNdare:

Really enjoyed the walk high up on the canopy with amazing views of the enormous trees, flowing rivers and Elephants .
The waterfalls and the blue pools were just breathtaking.
SUrprisingly lush and beautiful vegetation, in complete contrast to the surrounding land which is mostly arid, although stunning in each own sense.
Ibrahim,the forest ranger who showed us around, was most knowledgeable and likeable.

Halal safaris made our trip the most comfortable and exciting. Totally worth it!
11/10 recommend.

Thank you Samia ❤

Every minute of our trip was just extraordinary thanks to the Halal Safaris team! We learned so much about the history and unique cultural heritage of the Kenyan coast, and we were totally blown away by the area's natural beauty! Truly paradise! All of our excursions and experiences felt very intimate and authentic thanks to the local/insider knowledge and expertise provided by Halal Safaris. I think my favorite aspect of the trip was just that - feeling like we were far away from the well-trodden tourist track where you're elbow to elbow with other tourists...but all the while staying at beautiful, world class accommodations that made it feel like every bit the classic luxury beach escape! Just perfect in my book!

This was a fabulous trip off the normal tourist beaten track to see the little known heritage sites of this beautiful part of the Kenyan coast. Many western tourists have been put off by reports of terrorist activity but at no time did we ( my adult daughter accompanied me) feel at risk. The local specialist guides showed us round their own communities where they were often greeted by friends. The restaurants were where they ate, they knew the best shops for whatever we were looking for. We set the pace and the schedule was amended according to our wishes at the time. The selection of accommodations gave us a range of what was available , a luxury international resort, a traditional Arab style villa with personal chef and finally a safari type lodge on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Totally luxury. I don’t think I have ever been so well and so luxuriously looked after on a trip - not have I felt so privileged in the places we were taken and the sites we saw. Thanks, Samia, and all your crew. Brilliant.

I booked a trip with Halal Safaris in November to Lamu and it was magical!
All the transfers were done in a timely and organized manner, our hosts were always present to assist with any issues and would go out of their way to cater to everyone's needs.
I got to enjoy a sunset dhow ride, a tour of Shela and Lamu town, a visit to Safari Vets and Safari Doctors and had some really good food at Sea souk and Shela bahari.

I would definitely book with Halal Safaris again..and again.

We booked a getaway trip with Halal Safaris in the beginning of August 2021 to Medina Palms hotel in Watamu, Kenya and the experience was amazing! I would most highly recommend this gem of a resource! We absolutely loved the fact that Halal Safaris went above and beyond with arranging all of the logistics for our trip. All we had to do was give our travel date preferences, and the type of trip we were looking for. Halal Safaris gave us a great selection of options to choose from and the entire process was easy, effortless smooth-sailing!

We were impressed with the timely and impeccable attention to detail. Prior to our trip, we got an itinerary with descriptions and times for all the activities we were to enjoy. Halal Safaris coordinated a full day of amazing one-of-a-kind, fun in the sun ocean excursion! The sparkling, all shades of crystal-clear blue and turquoise ocean-water was heavenly! The inclusive package partnered with Coast Camping tours gave us a boat ride to Watamu marine park, swimming at Garoda beach, Mangrove cruising and a seafood barbeque topped off with a driver who picked us up from home in Mombasa, took us everywhere and dropped us back home! Halal Safaris even managed to arrange for us to have the entire boat to ourselves, for a small additional fee! This was so highly worth it for anyone who is as COVID-cautious as we were! Everyone that took care of our trip was amazing and so kind!

We spent two days and one night at Medina Palms. There were 4 adult ladies and a baby. We got a 2-bedroom apartment with a plunge pool! The 2 Level apartment was beautiful and spacious! The upstairs open window concept living area with so breathtakingly relaxing! We also loved the fact that Halal safaris was able to negotiate a later check-out (1:00 pm) instead of midmorning so we could spend more time at Medina! The only suggestion I would give is to stay for at least two nights that way you have time to enjoy the water sports that are included with the stay. You can choose from windsurfing, bodyboarding, and kayaking.

If you are looking for a genuine, reliable one-stop-shop that will fulfill all of your next adventure-booking needs, then what are you waiting for? Look no further and book your next trip with Halal Safaris! I know I can’t wait to dream up my next trip with them!
