“Overnight Magical Safari!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

As a family of 5 we booked a overnight safari with Sufiyan and couldn't fault it. We were a group aged from 35-70 years with some very keen animal spotters and some just along for the ride!

Well, Sufiyan catered for us all and made the trip the so much fun and worth every penny, the best adventure - and above all we saw so many animals during the day, at sunset and on the night safari, each trip out in the 4 x 4 was an adventure - as another review indicated, 4 x 4 well worth the extra few bucks. We saw elephants, zebras, giraffes, lioness & cubs, a lion and so much more - we stayed at Salt Lick and an elephant paid the 'tourists' a visit at night at the watering hole - amazing to see, watch out for bugs flying at you - no bites - just lots of pinging...!

Sufiyan brought Timothy along to drive us so having 2 guides of expertise and fun was perfect, we really all learnt so much from them and not just about the animals, but about the people of Mombasa and their culture.

Overall, highly highly recommended, from the start to finish - thank you Tropical Adventure Safaris for exceeding our expectations.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Sufiyan put a lot of effort into organising a last minute trip to Amboseli starting from Nairobi and ending up in Mombasa. He did his very best, it paid off and we're very thankful - can't go wrong with these guys.

“Tropical Adventure- Excellent”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Me and my wife visited Kenya during August 19-26 this year and we had a superb time, a big thanks to Sufiyan Musani for arranging everything to perfection. We have travelled to Masai Mara, Amboseli, Taita Hills and Tsavo East and West. The itinerary was suggested by Sufiyan and it couldn't have been any better. Although we had to travel some distance it was enjoyable due to beautiful landscape. The animal concentration was the highest at Masai Mara and if you are not keen on experiencing different geographies and climate conditions you may concentrate on Masai Mara. We stayed two days at Masai Mara and I wish we could stay longer at Masai Mara. We stayed at Entumoto Safari Camp at Masai Mara and it was an excellent place to stay, credit goes to Sufiyan for suggesting that. There are other 4/5 star safari lodges at Masai Mara but Entumoto takes very special care about their guests with personal touch. The other places that worth mentioning are Salt Lick Lodge at Taita Hills and Serana Kilaguni Lodge at Tsavo. Salt Lick was a very unique accommodation - which has a waterhole in the front yard where you can see elephants drinking water from a distance of 1 metre! Kilaguni Lodge at Tsavo is wonderful in a marvellous surrounding.

The whole trip was enjoyable due to great company of Sufiyan; he is very knowledgable about the wildlife and we learnt a lot from him. Our driver Sudy, a native Kenyan from the coast, was also an excellent person with great knowledge about terrain and wildlife. The whole time we were treated like royalties by Sufiyan and Sudy. We have taken great photographs during the tour and Sufyan and Sudy both have this uncanny ability to spot animals and get close to them. We used a 4*4 vehicle for the trip arranged by Sufiyan. Although it would be a bit expensive but I recommend a 4*4 vehicle instead of a minibus which is the other option. We were so papmpered during the whole trip that we didn’t want to come back from Kenya. I strongly recommend Tropical Adventure as they will pay attention to the tiniest detail. There are numerous other tour operators and big ones as well but we consider ourselves very lucky that we took the leap of faith to do the safari with Tropical Adventure. I also found the pricing to be reasonable and Sufiyan was very open gave me all the breakdown of the costs. To conclude if you are planning to go to Safari you can trust Tropical Adventure without a grain of doubt.

“First class safari with the little extra!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

My wife and I went on a safari for 4 days together with Sufiyan and a driver. We rented a 4x4 alone instead of a minibus together with 5 other people. If you can afford it, do it. It will cost some more but is worth it.
My expectations where high but Sufiyan was great.
We got to see "the big 4" (didnt fint any rhino).

I will recommend Tropical Adventure Safaris and Sufiyan to everyone.

“Amazing photo safari through the Kenyan National Parks”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

We booked a photo safari with Tropical Adventure Safaris for end of July / beginning of August.

It was a tailor-made trip with exclusive use of the 4x4 vehicle and our own guide and driver.

Within our 5 days safari we visited four national parks. We were picked up at Diani Beach and had our tour through Tsavo East (Voi Wildlife Lodge), Tsavo West (Ngulia Safari Lodge), Amboseli (Sopa Amboseli Lodge) and Ngutuni (Ngutuni Lodge) back to Diani.

The whole trip was very well organized and we even had the chance to modify the itinerary during the trip to fit our wishes.

Both our driver Sufiyan and guide Singha gave us a lot of information about the african wildlife and led us to places in the National Parks, where we had a good chance to spot the animals we wanted to see. By the morning of our 3rd day we already even made it to see the big five.

The nice and friendly manner combined with the experience and professionalism of Sufiyan and Singha made it an unforgettable vacation!
