“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Booked 3-nights budget to-join trip from Nairobi to Masai-Mara in the crazy migration season. All our requirements were complied with but we yet have to meet an employee of Explorer Kenya. There are hundreds of agents/operators to Masai-Mara and they seem to mix and match clients with available vehicles and beds in order to maximise the use of available capacity. No complaints other than that this caused us uncertainty initially because the website does not make it clear to the client. However, the trip's price was determined on the basis of "to join" which presumably also means that one may have to join with another agent's group in an unbranded vehicle. Somehow the system is efficient and effective and the driver has been briefed about one's requirements before boarding, and clients in the same bus is accommodated in adjoining camps for ease of pick-up for game drives. Game drives may be full day with a lunch box. Don't expect to see the Mara River crossing as shown on National Geographic.

“Fabulous Driver/Guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I can't express how much John and Peter added to the students' great experience in Kenya. They quickly become invaluable members of our team. Their professionalism, insights, patience with all our questions, and sense of ministry are a rare combination. Our day trip to Nakuru Park was the best ever. We even saw a leopard (thanks to the keen eyes of John Kariuki!
People in the States often ask if I ever feel unsafe in Kenya, especially when responsible for others who are with me, like seminary students. The biggest reason I can answer "no" to that questions is our driver-guides. They look out for us as if we were their personal guests, even family. I'm so grateful for this, Robert. Thank you for providing us with such terrific folks and reliable, safe transportation,

“Unbelievable safari and great customer service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Had an amazing time on our safari with our fantastic guide Martin. He made sure we always had a front row seat to all the goings on in the park. We arrive to a huge queue for the wildebeest crossing but after some careful maneuvering Martin got us the best seats in the house to watch the unbelievable spectacle. The organizers were great and responded quickly to all contact and we always concerned with their customer satisfaction. Slight hiccup with the schedule but this was quickly and efficiently dealt with.

“Thanks robert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I must admit booking a safari over the internet to a company in africa was a bit daunting would anyone even be at the airport to meet us? Well i neednt have worried and sorry for wakeing you up robert that was an over enthusiastic somebody trying to help. Myself and grandaughter had a great safari in the masai mara with nathanial and michael for amboseli. The kibo camp at amboseli was amazing. Had a great elephant experience male lions and cheetas were a bit of a let down but i know they do not come out on appointments. Had a great experience with my grandaughter thanks again debby pell and chantelle. Thanks nathaniel and michael.
