“Our 3rd Safari booked with Diani Travel Centre”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We've booked 2 safaris previously with the staff at Diani Travel Centre and they were both superb so when we decided to go back to Diani Beach again, we knew where to go to arrange the safari. I emailed them a couple of weeks before we arrived with some information of what we wanted and they got back to me quickly with some details.
When we went in to the centre, all the staff remembered us and were very welcoming. They spent time discussing what we wanted and provided us with suggestions and alternatives. We took the information away and a couple of days later went back to book it. There was no pressure at any time.
We asked for the safari guide that we had previously, Kevin, as he had been excellent and he took us on another adventure. Kevin speaks excellent English, kind, helpful, is very knowledgable and keen to show guests as much wildlife as possible. Superb.
Our first lodge was Galdessa. It's a fantastic tented lodge on the banks of a fast flowing river but it was a very long drive from the entrance of Tsavo East. There were hippos in the river, a large crocodile on the opposite bank and loads of lizards and geckos running around. The tent was very luxurious with a view over the river, very clean and close to the main lodge. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast there and the food was amazing. There was so much at lunch that we asked them to do smaller portions for dinner! We had 5 courses for dinner including fillet steak which was some of the best that I've ever had - Amazing.
The following morning we could see foot prints ourside of our tent and found out that it's the path the hippos use to get back in the river in the morning. We didn't hear a thing.
Leaving there we saw a hippo up close as it tried to find it's way back to the river, again, it was amazing.
From there we then travelled in to Tsavo West and headed for Severin Safari Camp. We stayed there last time and it was brilliant. It was being refurbished but you wouldn't know unless somebody told you, it was all well hidden. Again, we had lunch, dinner and breakfast there and the food was lovely. In the afternoon we chilled by the pool and appreciated the peace and quiet. Our evening game drive took us out and about and then up to Poachers Lookout overlooking the plains below. Whilst up there we drank sparkling wine and ate canapes whilst watching the sunset next to a very clear Kilimanjaro. As it was my 50th birthday, it was so special. On return to the camp, my bed had been decorated with flowers wishing me a happy birthday, it must have taken somebody hours to do. Dinner that evening was again 5 courses and brilliant. Then to top it all off, I was given a birthday cake too. The whole day was the best that I've ever had.
We had a full day on the final day and arrived back at the hotel in Diani at about 1830 hours.
So all in all, Diani Travel Centre arranged it all for us and gave us an absolutely brilliant 3 day safari. The whole experience exceeded our expectations.
I can't praise the team at Diani Travel Centre enough and would definately recommend them for all bespoke safari's and other tours.
Many thanks to Bruce, Kevin and the team in the office.

The reef was beautiful. The staff was friendly. Very nice trip! We saw a lot of sea stars and fish. The ocean was not so deep in diving area.

“Very helpful”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We booked our trip with Bruce at Diani Travel Service he was very helpful and informative and didn't pressure us into taking a safari with them. He gave us some brochures to look at and decide and to just bring the booklets back if and when we had decided. We actually made up our minds sitting in the bar outside having a drink. We had an amazing time at the Masai Mara staying at the Governors Camp we would have no hesitation in recommending Bruce and his team and would definitely go back again.

“Wonderful snorkeling experience!”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

We had a day trip from Diani to the Marine Reserve near Wasini Island. It was a wonderful day. We were picked up at our accommodation at the appointed time, then travelled by kombi to Shimoni.
From there we joined a few other people on a boat that took us to the reserve. On the way we saw a number of dolphin. Our guide was helpful and reliable. He swam with us when we were snorkeling.
Afterwards we went back to Wasini Island for a delicious meal of crab and fish, the after a short tour of Wasini village we returned to the mainland for the journey back to Diana. Truly a day well spent!
