Good option for custom itineraries through Kenya
4/5

We (late 20s couple) typically never book with a tour company for our travel but since this was our first safari we decided to work with Kenan Travel to arrange a private tour. Our safari was 2 weeks through Kenya where we stayed at a wide range of properties from budget to mid range to luxury.

Pro:
- Jane was extremely flexible and worked with us so that we could have the exact itinerary we wanted. It was very easy to continue to make adjustments as we delayed the trip a year due to covid.
- Mike, our hiking guide for Mt Longonot, was absolutely fantastic and would highly recommend working with him for short hikes or longer trips.
- Vehicles were in good condition and prices were reasonable.
- The parks / reserves / conservancies we visited were of course amazing - the Naboisho Conservancy is not to be missed.

Con:
- Some small issues where Jane/Kenan Travel were not aware of some new policies / regulations:
- We stayed outside the park at Samburu and were not able to re-enter for a morning game drive on the day we were leaving, apparently this is a new policy
- We did not get a reservation for the elephant orphanage in Nairobi and couldn't visit
- Flamingo Hill Camp is "inside the park" at Lake Nakuru, but due to rising water the small section of the park with Flamingo Hill Camp is cut off from the rest of the park. The new park gate is a 40 minute drive away through the city and around the lake - it would have been good to know this ahead of time since it was quite inconvenient.
- our driver/guide for the main part of the trip, Simon, wasn't a great fit for us. He didn't realize it was our first safari until 3 days into the trip, and we typically got a late start on morning game drives. We had a different driver/guide for the last day of the trip at Nairobi National Park who was great, and the guides at Basecamp in Naboisho Conservancy were truly excellent.

Excellent safari planner - focused, detailed and responsive
5/5

Jane at Kenan Travels was an excellent tour organizer for my safari trip to Amboseli and Masai Mara. We started emailing about 5 or 6 months before trips and even before things were confirmed, she worked very hard and faithfully with all my questions.

She included my preferences for specific lodges, and completely took care of all the logistics and details in the bush as well as Nairobi - which I used for before and after as staging stop (getting to know Kenya, repacking luggage, getting the covid testing, etc). She was detailed and responded on time, and for the Nairobi location, was able to coordinate meals locations. She included the lunch into my package - and I was stuffed at Carnivore. I had a personal driver each day, and it was a great resource in a new city like Nairobi. A shout-out to Anthony. For the return trip home, she also coordinate the best place for covid testing.

Whether if you know your preferences or you need someone to guide all the way, Jane at Kenan is reliable, honest and responsive. Good luck on your trip.

Kenan Travel for a Safari of a Lifetime
5/5

Jane at Kenan travel provided us with an amazing 8 day Safari to Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara that we will never forget. Our Lodges were so nice for the price with great food, service and accommodation. Our guide, David was excellent and we appreciated he experience and long hours to insure we had the best game drives ever. Examples: we found a leopard in the bushes below a dead wildebeest hanging from the limb of a tree in the Mara. Other jeeps came and went taking quick pics and leaving, but David let us watch her for over an hour going down to the creek for a drink and then climbing the tree to eat on the dead animal. Our photos were amazing and the experience was so incredible. The same for 2 lionesses behind a bush at Lake Nakuru, after the other jeeps left they finally sat up and put on a great show of yawning, stalking buffalo, etc.

Excellent communication
5/5

Altough I have put July 2021 as the travel date for this review we haven't actually visited Kenya yet, however after recently booking a safari tour with Kenan travel and tours for August 2022 I felt the need to express my thanks to tour manager Jane who during our correspondence has been a pleasure to deal with. All my questions have been replied to within a day or two in a professional helpful manner and I'm very pleased with the competitive deal she has put together for us. I look forward to adding another 5 star review once our eagerly anticipated trip is complete.

Excellent Company great for Tailor-made holidays
5/5

We had a wonderful 21 day holiday organised by Jane from this company. She was extremely helpful and swift to respond to e-mails. Nothing was too much trouble especially during Covid-19. The driver we had called Jeff was excellent. He was so good last year that we had especially requested him again. He was a very good driver, quite knowledgeable on the wildlife we saw and a very good spotter.
All the accommodation was of the highest standard, set in beautiful surroundings.
We found all the people very friendly and extremely helpful. This year the big cats were exceedingly hard to find. We did find one very special animal The African Wildcat in the Masai Mara.
We would strongly recommend this company for you tour of Kenya. They are very good at tailor made holiday.
