I contacted Spot Kenya Safaris via e-mail and Maurice from the very beginning was very responsive and accommodating to our needs.

We were a group of 10 friends travelling. We did a roadtrip from Nairobi to Diani, stopping to Naivasha, Amboseli and Tsavo West on the way there and to Tsavo East on the way back. We covered a lot of ground, yet our drivers have always been available to take us to as many game drives as possible. Spotting wildlife was not the easiest (after rain season Tsavo was very lush), but we have been compensated by the amazing landscape, especially in Tsavo West. Jonas, one of the drivers, was of great company and has a great sight and instinct for finding animals, he was able to spot lions twice!

While at the coast, Maurice organized for us a one day trip to Wasini Island at a good deal as well as showed us around town.

The few issues encountered on the road were promptly managed.

It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend Spot Kenya Safaris!

This was the trip of a lifetime for me. A very professional company with friendly guides who work hard to make sure you see as much as possible. I was met by Maurice at the airport and was quickly made to feel welcome by him and the guides (Sammi & Haruni). The variety of animals I saw far exceeded my expectations, and the scenery at every location was beautiful. Both Sammi and Haruni were extremely knowledgeable of the terrain and the wildlife. All of the lodges were excellent, with great food and accommodations. I honestly cannot think of anything negative to say about my experience with Spot Kenya. I plan to do another safari in the future, and when I do I will go with Spot Kenya again.

I've been using Spot Kenya Safari's for 4 years and can't find a better company. My tour consultant Geoffrey Mukari arranges all my safari's and hotel accommodation while I'm still in the UK.
This time we did a 7 day safari. We were picked up from Nairobi airport on time to drop off our extra baggage at hotel arranged by Geoffrey. Then onto Samburu for a 2 night stay. Excellent accommodation and fantastic wildlife. Then onto Lake Baringo, long journey but breathe taking views across the lake. Great for bird watching.Next Lake Nukuru, once again excellent accommodation with amazing views down towards the lake. This is were we saw our first wild rhino. Amazing !!! Masai Mara, another great lodge. We were offered extra activities here but decided to make the most of the Mara and have a full days game drive. What a great choice amazing photos to keep forever.
Our driver/guide Huran was brilliant with great knowledge of animals and birds. His driving skills were outstanding and always on time.
Back to Nairobi again a great hotel. Our tour consultant Geoffrey, also arranged a meal at the famous carnivore resturant which was great experience.
This safari was by far the best to date seeing all of the big five. Lots of travelling but Geoffrey and Huran made stops to sightsee Mt Kenya, Great rift, valley and Aberdare waterfall were just some of the places. Any questions I asked were all answered.
My last destination Mombasa our hotel had also been arranged and booked by Geoffrey and again a wonderful choice.
Spot Kenya Safari are a respectable honest company and value for money. Good fair prices for safaris, hotel bookings and excursions.I would recommend tour consultant Geoffrey Mukari, as he details everything down to the last minute.
Thank you Spot Kenya Safari's and Geoffrey for my dream holiday. Looking forward to the next one !!

I am SO glad we had Geoffrey as our guide on safari! He organized everything wonderfully, and we had such an amazing trip! He and his driver are FANTASTIC at finding different animals. We saw THREE leopards, countless elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, alligators, warthogs, baboons, hyena, ostrich, gazelles, buffalo, TONS of exotic birds, and plenty more. We also met some Maasai, and got to tour their village! (I wish I could add more than one picture to this review!!) Geoffrey knows the best places to go, the best views to stop at, and the BEST lodges to stay in! He was perfect in terms of interacting with us, too. We were very lucky in that we accidentally ended up on a private safari when the other group decided not to come along, so it was just a family safari for us. Geoffrey knew exactly when to give us some family time, when to point out new things and teach us more about Kenya wildlife, and when to offer to take pictures. He was constantly polite, trustworthy, and so very kind. When I go back to Kenya, some day, I hope Geoffrey will be my safari guide again!!

Even though the landscapes and experiences were amazing, everything our travel agency planned was the worst. They don't care about their clients, they only want to rip off clients!! We paid a lot of money and the vans we traveled in kept breaking down, the Safari "guides" (more like drivers) and the food were awful (except for one we had for only half a day, which was amazing). When we paid they told us meals were included. Nevertheless, we always had to pay for our drinks. The friend I travelled with is a vegetarian and she told the agency weeks before our trip started. They told her not to worry about it because everything will be arranged for her. Well.. No one in any camp we stayed or any driver knew about this!! They kept giving her meat, a few horrible vegetables or terrible sandwiches (with only two reeeaaaallly thin tomato slices).

Then, we wanted to go on a hot air balloon trip. They charged us US$480 when it costs US$425!!! We told them and they said they didn't care, that the price changed. Which actually never did!!! Always trying to rip off people!!!

NEVER GO TO "SPOT SAFARIS" OR "BIG TIME SAFARIS"!!!!!

Kenya is amazing, but look for good agencies, not this kind of shitty ones.

Just to add some extra things, they normally kept us waiting for 1-3 hours. If they said we start at 6am, sometimes we started at 9am!!! They do not care about their clients, DEFINITELY!!!! Because of this bad timing, I almost lost my plane back home! Of course, it was their fault and they didn't even care about it.

To sum up, this was one of the best holidays i have ever experienced!! Thank you again Geoffrey for the great time we spent together on this safari!

J'ai réservé un safari de deux jours avec cette compagnie et j'ai passé un excellent moment! Geoffrey, notre guide, a toujours fait en sorte que rien nous manque. L'hôtel était propre et très confortable avec une vue sur le parc ; le staff était très agréable et la nourriture très bonne. Les balades en voiture dans le parc ont été une expérience inoubliable! On a vu plein d'animaux et des paysages à couper le souffle! Notre guide connaissait très bien le parc, et savait toujours où il fallait tourner afin de profiter au maximum de la beauté du parc. C'était une des meilleurs vacances que j'ai jamais vécu! Encore merci à toi Geoffrey pour cet expérience inoubliable!

We had 4 tourists(2 from Holand and 2 from Spain) joined us at Navasha, they were horriable even waste our more than 3 hours at last day when we need to catch up the plane to back home. Because they went lost when read bicycle and we can do nothing but wait. Besides that the trip was good.

More than professionnal as they took great care of all our requests with an extreme care and reactivity. The lodges were top of the line and gorgeous.

Not to be forgotten is Mr Mbote our guide and driver, so nice, so safe when driving and so accurate when talking about the wild animals. Our kids took to him at once and so do I.

Thanks to spotkenya safaris our dream came true and we really enjoyed every moment of our safari.
