We booked a 2 day Tsavo East safari with Ringo tours.

Overall experience was great. We saw a lot of animals, and felt very good. Because other people canceled, we end up taking private tour which i absolutely recommend before shared one due to viewing space in the car.
I would recommend the company to anyone.

Positives:
Price (even after the change, see bellow, very good compare to other offers)
Driver (very skilled)
Accommodation (voi safari lodge) = this is an amazing experience.
Program
Food
Everything

Negatives:
The price offered was originally calculator for 4 people and because 2 of them cancel we were asked to pay little bit extra. Not a huge deal i just believe this should be communicated before that the price is subjected to change. I believe owner would do this going forward to avoid any issues.

We had a wonderful 4-day-Safari (2 nights in Amboseli and 1 night in Tsavo east). Everything was perfectly organized by Hamisi. Our Safari driver had an amazing knowledge about the animals around, we did see many more wild species than we would have ever expected!
Highly recommended!

I booked with Hamisi the owner of Ringo mainly because hes the only person out of all operators I e mailed including top guys like Micato Safaris who actually listened to what I wanted and replied with an intelligent answer catering to my specific needs. I was particularly interested to see and photograph a big tusker which was my lifelong dream. So when I started e mailing operators about my request to best places to find them and best times to visit etc and all operatora including top so called best safari operators such as Micato came with a very standard, generic and almost automated reply paying no heed to what I really wanted, that is except Hamisi from Ringo. He has done his homework, checked info from KWS etc gave gave a favorable reply which convinced me to go with Ringo. We also got a very reasonable quote which was very attractive for the tour I wanted. We landed on 19th March and Hamisi personally came along with driver guide juma. During whole trip they were both very accomodating and ended up finding the big tusker I wanted with much much more. Also Hamisi is a man who honors his word and reliable. I reccomend Ringo to anyone. Just one note to remember wjen in Kenya try to travel to the park from Nairobi in an ac cumfotable car rather than safari van as its dusty. Next tour Masai Mara with Ringo for me.

We took a safari this year in August, followed-up by a trip to Zanizbar post the Safari. Hamisi the owner was very responsive and arranged everything as what we had planned. Steven who was our driver through out the stay was an excellent guide/driver who knew the mara trail very well. The key to good safar with any operator is to be very clear with what is included/excluded as part of the trip, do your own research and then prescribe the same to the operator.
As part of hour trip, we did take a lot of suggestion from Hamisi and also gave our own inputs and clearly discussed and validated the inclusion/exclusions. The # of game drives was not an issues, steven was more than helpful. We saw the migration after waiting for an hour, saw lot of animals and overall a great experience.

I went on a 3 days 2 nights safari with Ringo Adventure Safari. I was pleased from the initial contact with Ringo when I inquired about a safari with their company. I booked about a month in advanced and I wanted to take a safari with others because I was alone. Ringo booked me with two nice young ladies. We visited Tsavo East, which is one of the largest and oldest park in Kenya. We were able to see the big 5 animals and was very satisfied. The tour guide named Masood and driver named Kenyatta ensured that we got see all of the animals in the park. Overall, we were satisfied with the lodging and huge park. I would recommend booking your next safari with Ringo Adventure. You will not be disappointed. I will definitely book my next safari with this company and highly recommend them to family and friends.

We wanted to go on safari and combine this with a beach holiday. We are retired and time is not an issue for us. We spoke with various companies in Tanzania and Kenya who were quoting us ridiculous costs for a 7 day safari and short beach holiday. We saw a 4 weeks all inclusive deal to Mombasa with Thomson and decided we would do this and then organise separate safaris from that area to Tsavo and Masai Mara. A 'taster' safari if you like. We began researching TA and found Ringo and one other operator who seemed to be popular in the area. We emailed both companies and found Hamisi, from Ringo to be very good. He always answered his emails quickly, and gave a lot of information and answered any questions we had. (The other company's comms were quite poor, telling us what they couldn't provide as opposed to what they could) We decided to go with Hamisi, and sent a 10% deposit to his bank account. Now, let us be honest, it was quite scary to send money overseas to Africa, to someone we had not met. However, we decided it was worth the leap of faith. Intermittently, Hamisi would email us to keep in touch, or if we had any questions. Nearer to the time of our holiday, Hamisi arranged for us to meet at the hotel to discuss the trips. I had read the previous review, and was a little concerned at the contents. Hamisi came to the hotel as arranged and we had a very pleasant meeting with him. He explained that there had been a change to the itinerary, but provided us with alternatives and we actually changed our lodge to Salt Lick and we added a night at Shimba Hills which was excellent. I asked him about the poor review, and explained that we were concerned about the contents. He explained fully what had happened. As a result of this meeting, we decided to pay for both safaris, in advance. Hamisi provided us with two absolutely fantastic safaris. The first to Tsavo and Taita Hills and Shimba was very good. Evans the driver, was informative, friendly and always wanting us to get the best out of the game drives we had. He is a star. The lodges were good and there was just the two of us in our van. The second safari to Masai Mara, which was an air safari was incredible. Again, we had private safaris, and saw just about everything, up close and very personal. Dominic and Sammy were great guides. To sum up, I would use Hamisi and Ringo again. It is obviously a very difficult time for Kenya, there was obviously space in the lodges, and park entrance fees etc have increased. We would recommend Hamisi, he is open, honest and provided us with great experiences at a good price. Apparently he has a contact in London which some people may prefer to use.

I booked a safari for my parents and friends whom were travelling out to Mombasa for my wedding. Hamisi from Ringo safaris was always very prompt in his reply with any questions I asked him and boy did I ask some questions! He never once made me feel that he was getting "fed up" of my constant quiries and always put any fears I had at ease. We paid a 30% deposit by bankers draft which was perfectaly safe and the rest on arrival at Mombasa, Hamisi met my friends and family on the day he said he would, discussed the itinerary and showed them the vehicle ( we had a 4 x 4 landcruiser, which was well worth it) when he made sure they were happy, they then paid him the balance. Well, they said the safari was excellent, their driver whom I believe was mohammed, was a very safe driver and his knowledge of all the wildlife was excellent, as were his "spotting" skills, he also had a book to always show them the spelling or anything they didnt understand. They stayed at Voi wildlife lodge in Tsavo east and Finch Hattons in Tsavo west. Just beware of the drink costs at Voi Wildlife, other than that a lovely lodge. Finch Hattons was something else, it was more expensive but as this was a special occassion and my parents are in their 70's I thought they would love this place, which they did. Overall I could not recommend Hamisi, Mohammed and all at Ringo tour and Safaris highly enough, keep up the good work Hamisi!
