We booked our first safari through our holiday rep to go to Tsavo east and Salt Lick. Our driver Sajjid was fantastic. He explained what our itinery was, informed us that at our comfort break stops that there would be opportunities to buy souvenirs but were under no obligation to purchase. In the game reserves he was regularly in radio contact with other safari drivers giving and receiving information if a good view of the animals was seen. He reassured us that he wanted to ensure we saw as much of the reserve wildlife as possible. He was courteous at all times and personally for me, he took extra care when doing the early morning game drive as I wasn't feeling too well. Overall we had a fantastic two days and I would recommend Pollmans for safari tours.

We have been on safari with Pollmans 5 times over the last few years and they have always provided very reliable service from begining to the end. I can't rate them highly enough. The staff at the airport meet you as soon as you arrive and the safari drivers are so helpful and knowledgable, Salim Safari 1 is our favourite. Once we had to help rescue some other people who were stranded in a broken down van inside the national park because their safari firm didn;t send them a rescue , our driver said it was his duty to assist as Pollmans are a reputable company so we took the people to the lodge, they were so grateful as they said they had been there for hours.
We will be returning to Kenya later this year and will be going on safari with Pollmans again. Can't wait.

We went for a four day safari trip visiting the Tsavo East, Amboseli and Taita Hills game parks. The driver Juma was really skilled in the nature and animal life and he must have hawk eyes being able to spot all the animals that he did. Of course the safaris were the highlights of this tour but the trips between the parks were really interesting too. We saw the amazing Kenyan countryside and a lifestyle that differs a lotfrom Europe.

Visited the Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli Parks during the week. Our driver was not the best guide, but luckily one of our party was a bird expert so that helped. As expected there is a lot of travelling and on arrival at Lake Nakuru we only spent a couple of hours on safari and did not see any flamingos, he said they had flown away! One of our party managed to persuade our driver to travel to the lake the next morning so we could see them after showing our driver they were there through binoculars! It added an hour onto our journey but was worth it. The camps we stayed in were all good and the food were good quality. The beer, Tusker is great. At Amboseli we were taken on a walking safari into the bush by Sammi, a Massi warrior, an hour trip lasted two+ hours. Great fun. The safari was great and the animal made the holiday especially the elephants and lions in thier natural habitat. Would like to go again but on a personalised safari. Money permitting.
