“2 day/1 night Masai Mara Safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

OUTSTANDING! That one word sums up our experience with Go Kenya Tours & Safaris. Bonufas was our guide and he made sure that we saw as many animals as possible. Being 20 feet away from a sleeping lion and lioness was the highlight. We saw giraffes, elephants, a cheetah, black rhino, gazelles, zebra's, topi, hyena, wildebeest, water buffalo and numerous other birds & antelope. Bonufas was simply amazing in getting where we needed to go for us to see the animals. I was truly shocked that we were able to cram seeing so many into such a short period of time. We stayed in the tented camp and it just made the experience better.

“Really amazing safari!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We planned our trip for October 2012 with Robert at Go Kenya and had an amazing experience. He was great at tailoring a trip to our timing and budget, and the rates were by far the best we found.

Our guide Tony was great, and did an amazing job of spotting and finding wildlife - we saw the big five within our first two game drives. Went to Amboseli, Nakuru and Maasai Mara. Had a private vehicle, nice lodges, great experience overall.

The only room for improvement was in communication in the month or so leading up to the trip - we wired the deposit, then didn't really hear anything else until the morning our guide picked us up. When we asked questions, we got answers, but they were delayed and not very detailed. We also did a tour in TZ, and our operator was super communicative - she sent us a packing list, and checked in regularly to make sure we had no questions. For a safari virgin, it was a bit nerve wracking to wire money into the void and then not really hear from tour company again. HOWEVER, if anyone else has this experience, I would say not to worry - the trip was absolutely flawless. Robert is a great planner, and Tony was a great guide.

Highly recommend!

“All you imagined then more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

My husband, a friend and I, all living in the UAE, decided to go to Kenya on safari for 6 days/5 nights over the Eid holiday. I found Go Kenya on line and cannot say enough about how helpful Robert was, how seamlessly every step of trip went, but most importantly just how amazing Kenya is and how Go Kenya helped us cover a lot of ground in our stay. We saw over 50 different wildlife types (and that isn't even counting all the varieties of birds) in the 4 beautiful parks we visited. We were greeted at the entrance to Samburu by a herd of about 40 elephants crossing the road leading to the lodge and all of us agreed, how could that be topped. But at every turn in the road it just got better. We visited four parks and each had something special and unique to offer, picking a favourite would be impossible.

All our accommodations were top notch, the food was great and I was most impressed that there was no single price supplement for our friend to have her own room.

The trip finished with a delicious and unusual lunch at Carnivore in Nairobi, a restaurant that serves every manner of meat, including ostrich and crocodile, roasted and carved at your table. The food just keeps coming until you tip over the flag that is atop the beautiful accompaniment tray, at which time you can finish the meal with a delicious dessert and Kenyan coffee. From there we headed to the airport satisfied in everyway.

I cannot remember a better trip, and I have been all over the world, then this one. The people of Kenya were warm and loving, the wildlife is abundant and I thank Robert and Mike, our driver for making it all so easy. Do yourself a big favour and GO KENYA!!

“Very very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We booked a safari starting in Nairobi and ending in Mombasa en we really liked it. We went to Masai Mara, Amboselli, Lake Nakuru, Tsavo West and what an experience it was. It was always a dream to go on a safari and my dream came true. The whole trip was liked we planned and Robert (salesmanager) was very helpfull, patience and understanding because we had a lot of questions before we booked the safari and we got everything we asked for on our safari. Our guide Mr. Mutumi came to pick us up at our hotel in Kenya and explained what the plan was during our 5 day safaris. Mr. Mutumi is a very patience, friendly and polite guide who surely loves to joke a bit and could easily spot a hyena or lion from far away. He is a good driver and always in a good mood. The tourbus during our safari was in a very good state and we really loved the open roof. All the lodges whe stayed in where very good. I would surely recommend Go Kenya. Tours for a safari or day trip. We really loved it and will book a safari again if we visit Kenya again.

“Great way to do a safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

My wife and I spent three days two nights on saafri in the Masai Mara with Go Kenya tours and it was wonderful, our driver Motamie picked us up from the hotel in Nairobi and drove us to Masai, he was alos our driver for all the game drives, he was very knowledgeable and very friendly a real bonus. The accomodation was great (buget) a tent wit a double bed, hot shower and flushing loo, the food in the camo was good wholesome food and the staff at the camp very friendly. I would recommend a pack of cards or board games for after dinner in the bar.....overall I would recommend Go Kenya to all.
