It has always been my wife’s dream to go on safari to see the animals in their natural setting. So, once we retired, we decided not to wait. After much research we decided to use Odyssey Safari and we were not disappointed! First off, Jess worked with us to help craft our personal experience. He really wanted to insure that we were able to do everything that we wanted. Beatrice then worked tirelessly to schedule, coordinate and price our safari to meet our needs. She was working from Nairobi so the time difference was difficult but she always responded by the next day. She then stayed on top of our flights and any lodging changes as COVID moved forward. As great as Odyssey and all the people were, the best part of this entire experience was our guide Jackson! He picked us up at the airport and stayed with us the entire 10 days. That included transportation between the parks (Tsavo East & West, Amboseli, Lake Nikuru and Maasai Mara) and two game drives each day. Each of the game drives was coordinated to insure we had every opportunity to see and learn about the animals. Jackson was always willing to answer every question and most times spoke up before we could even ask the question. Probably as important as teaching us about the animals Jackson shared with us about the wonderful country of Kenya, her people and culture. This included a visit with a Masai tribe and other locals who talked to the beautiful people and natural resources of the country. I absolutely want to also thank Eliud for his support to Jackson and his behind the scenes coordination of other activities. The bottom line here is that we would strongly encourage anyone who is even vaguely thinking about a safari experience to reach out to Odyssey. You will not be disappointed! We would love to go back and when that time comes Odyssey will be the only place we call!!

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Odyssey worked with my daughter and I to meet our time constraints and still see varied and fascinating national parks across Kenya. They took care of all the details of hotels, transportation, and required Covid test before our return to the US. Our guide Erastus was truly excellent; he clearly loved the parks and their animals and was incredibly knowledgeable about them. Again and again he went beyond what was required to make every day (and every game drive) memorable.

My wife and I used Odyssey Safari for our African honeymoon, and I wish I could give more than a 5 star review! From start to finish, everything was handled professionally and the service was flawless. We felt like celebrities from the way we were treated. Beatrice, our main contact, was the best! She answered any questions we had, whenever we had them, no matter how complex, almost instantly (we live in NYC and she was in Kenya, and was still getting back to us almost instantly!). We went on a safari for a week in Kenya and then to a beautiful resort on the beach in Tanzania (Zanzibar). Charles was our safari guide in Kenya, and he was amazing!! We saw the Big 5 AND the wildebeest crossing the Mara River, and we saw a lion hunt and get a wildebeest! Charles knew everything: there was no question he could not answer, about any animal (bird, bug, plant, tree, flower, anything!). We stayed at the Tortilis Camp in Amboseli National Park and Entim Camp in Masai Mara (both were phenomenal with 4 course meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, excellent Wifi and pristine facilities). This was the best thing we have ever done in our lives, and I would recommend (and already have) Odyssey Safaris to anyone who wants to go on a safari or honeymoon. In addition to the breathtaking safari, Jess and Beatrice also booked the Zanzi Resort for us in Zanzibar, for the beautiful beach second half of our trip, and we have never stayed somewhere so beautiful. The staff at Odyssey booked everything for us, including all of our flights (direct flight from NYC to Nairobi), and ensured that we had nothing to worry about. They also helped us set up all of the COVID PCR tests too). We truly had nothing to worry about in Odyssey's hands, and we had the absolutely best two weeks of our lives. We love Odyssey!

This was a bucket-list fulfilled. Simon was the total reason we had such a fabulous time in Kenya. The places we saw and the endless animal sightings was more than we could ever have expected. Kenya is such a beautiful place and we saw it all. The accommodations were fabulous and the staff at all of them were above exceptional. To be in your room and waking up to Zebras outside your window was the best experience ever. I would recommend Odyssey Safaris to anyone who would love a once in a lifetime vacation.
