We were 4 people looking to do a 3 day - 2 nights safari to Tsavo East and Amboseli in June (low season), starting from outside Mombasa. We enquired with the top 6 companies on Tripadvisor, and Farid was the first to write back. Furthermore, F. King also proved to be best on price compared to the others. We always got quick replies to our emails in connection with the details of the booking.
As for the safari itself, none of us had been on a safari before, so we were both excited and uncertain as for what to expect. To summarize: We had a fantastic safari.
We opted to stay at Ashnil Aruba (good food, good location) and Amboseli Serena (good location, good rooms), both recommended lodges with a good standard. We were picked up on time at our hotel and the transport went very smoothly (new Landcruiser) during the whole trip. Our driver Isa proved to be a very experienced driver, very professional, on time and was very good at spotting animals, and gave us enough time to take pictures and enjoy the moments. We saw a lot of animals, amongst others lions up close, and cheetas hunting right in front of us. Farid also called us each day to check up on us.
To summarize, we were highly satisfied with our safari with F. King, from A to Z, and will strongly recommend F. King to others!
