We visited Tsavo East and West in the end of January 2013. A private safari trip for two persons was organised by Julius Thuvi Safaris. We asked several companies information about safari trips they organized. Julius answered quickly and patiently to our emails. We paid in advantage about 20 % of the safari trip only a few days before safari and to Julius himself the rest of it in our hotel that he visited. We paid with credit card, it was totally safe and secure.
Trip took three days, one night in Voi Safari Lodge and another in Ngulia Lodge. In Voi Safari Lodge we saw a lot elephants and buffalos beside watering hole. Also in Ngulia Lodge we saw leopard, porcupines, hyena and elephants. Food and service was there excellent (much better than in Voi Safari Lodge). You can also choose other lodges according your own wishes. Our driver was Gabriel and he took care of everything. During Game drives he drove slowly enough to catch all the animals. But he also drove like a Finnish rally driver, when we hurried to see some animals that other drivers had found. He also took care of breaks to use washrooms and gave us water bottles. He spoke good English and was helpful.
After safari trip Julius came to see us and asked if everything had gone fine. Good customer service, we think! After safari we took from Julius Thuvi also a one day city tour - we wished we had Gabriel as driver, and we did - and a dolphin boat trip. Arrangements were good and there were no problems. Thanks to Gabriel, our driver and also Julius, the manager! See you again, when we come back to Mombasa!
