“Tsavo West & Ambroselli”

Sunset Kenya Tours and Safaris
Ranked #40 of 117 Outdoor Activities in Mombasa
Attraction details
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We booked our safari with Ben and we got a good price for our safari; It was a lot cheeper than the tour operators & beach boys safaris and within walking distance of the mall and hotel the Reef. Also unlike the beach boys Sunset Kenya has insurance covered.

On the day of our safari we were picked up in front of the reef by Ben and I could pay with Visa but is was cheaper to pay with cash so Ben drove us to the Barclays; this was great because getting money with Pin (Meastro) is very hard in the neighborhood of the Reef, Barclay's is the only one and it is too far away to walk to, i also don't like walking around with a lot of money in Mombasa.

After payment Ben signed our voucher. We were picked up by the Safari bus. Then we went to Tsavo, slept in the same Hotel as those who booked with the tour operator and we also had a better driver than the one of the Tour operator.

After tsavo we went to Ambroselli, we have seen lots of elephants and other animals; in short it was a great safari.

Everything was payed for except for the drinks in the Hotels (only coffee and thee was free in the hotels). However Sunset did provide free drinking water during the safari. It was good value for money!

Recommended to go to this safari company and within walking distance of our hotel (The Reef).
Given excellent service by Victor and secured a good deal on a 1 night Tsavo East safari, staying at Voi Safari Lodge.
After booking, were driven back to our hotel in one of the safari vans by our future driver. Brilliant little touch to get the oportunity to meet him in advance.

Now for the trip:
Michael was professional and courteous throughtout our trip. I was particularly impressed with his knowledge of safari animals. He drove smoothly at all times, which was impressive given the sometimes bumpy terrain. Moreover, he was able to spot Game where we would blatanty fail in spotting anything!!

I was really happy with Sunset Kenya Safaris and would recommend them.

I never thought i would ever sit down after my holiday and write something about the experience we got in a such wondefull country of Kenya.Sunset africa safari had planned everything from our arrival and we never felt more welcomed like in Kenya in our life.I personally fell in love with the beautyiful nature of this land.

Safari fo 8 days was extraordinay by sunset africa safaria having planned it for some months before we tavelled .We had everything that kenya holds starting from Nairobi to Nakuu,Masai mara ,Naivasha,Amboseli,both Tsavo east and west and the beach holiday at the sun and sand hotel...... swimming and swimming at the heat.

This was the longest safari we ever made in our holiday life BUT VERY VERY FANTASTIC.

We highly recommend sunse africa safaris for any safari in kenya.

We returned from Severin Sea Lodge on 22nd October this year.

We booked a two night/ three day safari with Elijah Chipa who reps for Sunset Kenya Tours and Safaris.
We thoroughly enjoyed the safari, and our driver, Badhru, could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful.
Elijah took us to the office of Sunset Kenya, where we paid for our Safari. We received a receipt and more information regarding the Safari.
We were so pleased with this Safari that we booked a One Day Dolphin Dhow and Kisite Marine Park Trip, and again, were not disappointed.
We would certainly not hesitate in using Sunset Kenya Tours and Safaris again.

Booked with Sunset after having quite a few problems with JT safaris not wanting to give us a price for the exact Safari WE wanted to do, and we have no regrets. My parents were paying for the Safari so I can't say what the booking process was like or if the value for money was good. What I can say is that the whole Safari (mine and my wife's first) was absolutely amazing! Our driver Baker was punctual, very experienced, only too happy to stop on request and did his very best to find us the best photo Opportunities. Tsavo East and West were just stunning and we all agreed that on Bakers suggestion we would love to come back and see the other less popular parks another time. So do not hesitate to book with Sunset and ask for Baker as your driver...Remember JT is not the be all and end all for excellent Safari in Kenya.
