We did an 8 day safari with Features Africa. Right from the initial contact by email with Karanja we knew we were in good hands. The whole trip was well planned, each hotel/ lodge was well chosen. Our tour guide George was knowledgeable, kind and funny, we thoroughly enjoyed his company for our trip. He knew so much about each park and all the species of animals we came across and always positioned the jeep so well to ensure we had a good view and could take good photos. Our luggage was lost by the airline on the way over but to ensure we were never stressed at any point Karanja kindly sorted this out for us and liased with George to let us know where it would meet us, this meant so much as we could just enjoy our trip. I highly recommend features Africa and we are very thankful we chose them. Special thanks to Karanja and George for a fantastic trip.
Most incredible experience. Features Africa goes above and beyond!
My husband and I went on an 8 day safari in August (Amboseli, Naivasha, Nakuru and Masai Mara). It's the trip I've always wanted to go on and Features Africa went beyond all of my expectations. Karanja was wonderful helping plan the details, getting us into a lodge I was hoping to stay at and that was originally completely booked. Gerald, our guide, was fabulous. When we stopped to watch animals he always had the best positioning. It felt like the animals would come to us, instead of us moving to see the animals and we would have the best views and photo opportunities. He did this while respecting the animals and their space and the rules of the parks (which we appreciate!). The jeep was also immaculate and very comfy to be in all week. We're early risers and Gerald accommodated us, as well as readjusted the schedule when we wanted to watch the rhinos (and other animal friends) for a few hours that wasn't planned (black and white!). We've recommended them to our friends, who are planning their trip with Features Africa now, and hope we have the opportunity to return soon. Thank you again, Karanja and Gerald!

Great company and staff
When a couple of friends, my partner and I decided to go on a safari through Kenya, we found ourselves in the dilemma of trying to choose between one of the 872548765 companies that are dedicated to it. After analyzing several of them, we opted for Features Africa and ... what a good decision we made!
Karanja, the owner, was very quick when responding to our emails, provided us with as much information as we needed, gave us many facilities to formalize the reservation, etc. In addition, the day we started the safari he came early to our hotel to greet us personally and introduced us to our guide and driver, George, and he also came to meet us at the hotel the day we finished the safari to personally make sure that the experience had been as amazing as we expected.
On the other hand, George was, without a doubt, the best guide we could have. He was very polite, he cared about us, gave us good pieces of advice and he knew every corner of the national parks we visited. It was a joy to share those days with him and, if we ever repeat a safari in Kenya, we will expressly ask him to be the one who leads us again.
Finally, the accommodations. We did not know what to expect from them and, honestly, every time we arrived in one of them we were stunned to see how wonderful they were, the amount of details they had, the incredible attention from the staff ... wonderful in all aspects (and truth be told we are quite picky about these issues!).
Thank you Karanja and George ... meeting you has been a very pleasant surprise and the service you have offered us has been exceptional. We hope to see you again soon! Monica
We will be back
The whole thing was amazing, since the booking process, and corresponding. Karanja was very responsive and fairly flexible in the way he accommodate our request regarding, scheduling, wildlife interests, photography questions.
Masai Maara in general is Amazing and I think i can write all the superlative words here to describe how great it was. We practically seen and photograph what we wanted to see there and more !
Our guide george was very very knowledgeable about the region, areas and animal behaviour that he really helped maximise our chance in getting a great pics of the animals.
To spend the last part our trip between baringo, bogoria, Nakuru and Naivasha was great, as our bird photography days was quite relaxing after 7 full of action days in Masai Maara. Our guide James was also great with good knowledge about birds and animal around these parts and very attentive to our need. (I was a bit sick for a couple of days). I also would like to mention a special praise for Karanja and his team, as we REALLY appreciate when he offered to have one free bonus trip of photo hunting of the African Fish Eagle in Lake Naivasha, as we did not see them when we where in Baringo. I know they mentioned this was because we cancelled our morning drive to Lake Bogoria, but ultimately because it was our decision, he did not have to do this. The fact that he did anyway we really appreciate it !
So there, Thank you again for this.
All in all, it was an amazing experience for our first trip to africa, and we are glad that we choose 'Features Africa Journey' , now we are sure we will come back, and we know we will be in a very capable hands.
Thank you Karanja and Features Africa Journey.
Everything was perfect! Kindness, expertise, care for the details. Gerald was a fantastic game driver, with a great knowledge of the area and the wildlife, discrete, caring and tireless. He was great in tracking animals and shows a great love for them. He also has a great respect for nature and wildlife. Instead of resting, he drove one hour in order to help us finding a charger which broke, while we were dining at the resort. A trip with Features Africa is an amazing experience... thanks to all the staff!!
Tutto perfetto! Gentilezza, competenza, attenzione ai dettagli. Gerald è stato una guida fantastica, preparatissimo, riservato, attento, instancabile. Bravissimo nel trovare tracce e ha un grandissimo amore per gli animali. E ha un rispetto incredibile per la Natura e la vita. Anzichè riposarsi, si è fatto un'ora di strada per trovarci un caricabatterie che si era rotto, mentre noi cenavamo nel resort. Bellissima esperienza, grazie a tutto lo staff!!
