Two Week Luxury Safari by Spirit of Kenya EXCELLENT!
5/5

Trip of a lifetime thanks to Spirit of Kenya. I contacted Spirit of Kenya (SOK) in March 2019 to plan a two week Safari for me and my wife. After getting some initial information, and after many comparisons with other recommended Safari Tour agencies, I chose SOK. The communication was quick and efficient with many options for places to visit and accommodations. Vanessa (Happiness Assist. Manager) worked with me via email and telephone and was also my point of contact while in Kenya and Tanzania. She was wonderful. In Essence, SOK helped me build my personalized Safari. We traveled in October and everything ng was perfect. Friendly and Knowledgeable English speaking local guides; Courteous service; Absolutely stunning accommodations; Overall spectacular experience that makes me want to return to Africa to do this again. We travelled to Amboseli near Mt. Kilimanjaro and our guide "George" was a virtual African anthropological and biological expert. He could name plants and animals and then describe, in detail, what they were commonly used for or how they existed. George spoke English fluently and clearly and accompanies us everywhere. We felt safe, secure, and well-informed with George. George made it so we saw and photographed the Big-5 and countless more wildlife. We visited Masai Mara where Spirit of Kenya and George arranged for us to visit a Masai village where I jumped with the Masai warriors while my wife sang and danced with the Masai women. We will never forget that experience. We visited the Great Rift Valley, Hells Gate where the "Lion King" movie was set, and Lake Naivasha where "Out of Africa" was filmed and where we enjoyed a boat ride to view an abundance of wildlife including hippos. Then we had SOK plan our three days in Zanzibar for some relaxing beach time. It was similarly and meticulously planned. Our resort was all-inclusive and we had nothing to worry about. The weather was fabulous and we had a chance (as coordinated by SOK) to explore Stone Town. We returned to Kenya but had an extra 2 days. Not to worry Spirit of Kenya, with no prior coordination, helped me plan an extra day in and around Nairobi to visit the national park, a giraffe feeding park, baby elephant orphanage, and a very famous restaurant. Moses was our guide and he did a fantastic job of keeping us busy and informed. My wife and I wanted to stay but finally we knew we had to come home. THANK YOU Spirit of Kenya. You are a fabulous company; well-run, and you clearly care about your customers and their satisfaction. We will return to Africa and will ONLY consider working with you. Thank you again for a trip of a lifetime.

Unreal Safari in Kenya and Tanzania !!
5/5

A big thank you to Spirit of Kenya and Soul of Tanzania for an amazing safari !!
First off, I would like to thank Vanessa for designing the perfect safari for my mom and I: she always replied to my emails very quickly (and we exchanged a lot of emails!) and made me feel very comfortable with the whole booking process. The entire execution was flawless: planning, airport pickups, lodges, food, guides, game drives... All expectations were exceeded ! Our guide Carlos was awesome: very professional, knowledgeable about all animals, courteous, always super punctual and the right amount of friendly ! Plus, he has an impressive ability to spot animals way in the distance. I would highly recommend Carlos !!
As for the obvious, the animals: We saw the big five and MUCH MUCH more !!
Cheetahs feeding on a fresh kill, three adolescent lions chasing warthogs, a male ostrich performing a courtship dance... too many things to list. It felt like being in a documentary ! One of the best trips ever. (and I've visited over 35 countries)
Look no further than Spirit of Kenya for your dream safari !

An experience of a lifetime
5/5

Having never been to Africa let alone a safari we did not have any idea of which company we would use. Having done a little online research we opted for “Spirt of Kenya”. They offer totally flexible private safaris where from the hotel in Nairobi your Driver and tour guide transports you door to door for the entire journey.

From the very beginning where we emailed “Spirit of Kenya” Tiago quickly sorted an initial itinerary from our requirements. We wanted to see lots of wildlife and see part of the great animal migration in the Masai mara from a hot air ballon. We were offered a good choice of levels of accommodation. We upgraded on a few where we would be staying for more than 1 night and would highly recommend “ The Sarova Salt lick Lodge” in Tsavo West , “Ol Tukai Lodge” in Amboseli and “Entim private camp” in the Masai Mara ( where you stay under canvass in an unfenced encampment ). All of the accommodation was made better by the excellent friendly staff who could not do enough to ensure your stay was comfortable.
The hot air ballon experience was well worth the extra cost. You float above the landscape for an hour or so getting a great views of the wildlife then after landing a champagne breakfast set up in the bush.

We don’t eat meat but we need not have had any concerns about the choices of food available for breakfast, lunch or evening dinner . Some of our accommodation choices offered self service buffet others “a la carte” . There was always plenty of fresh fruit , salad veg & fish on offer. At the Entim private camp the chef actually came out to talk us about what we would eat. It’s all the more amazing when you consider most of the camps are a long way from anywhere along some rough tracks.

You have to be up early most mornings but it’s worth seeing sunrise over the vast landscapes. If you are too early for breakfast there is always good coffee and cake to get you started.

Our driver Simon is a very experienced guide and we are convinced has superpower eye site. He could spot a camouflaged animal at considerable distances whilst driving . We would only find it after we had stopped and with binoculars in hand. His knowledge of the wildlife was incredible - birds, plants snakes included. He easily managed to navigate in the parks along tracks , across rivers , with no signs anywhere. There are some long drives along tarmac highways and out of park dirt tracks where you get to see some of the rural aspects of Kenya including interesting chats with Simon on the politics of the country which to us is all part of the experience.

We would not hesitate in recommending “Spirit of Kenya” if you are looking for an experience of a lifetime.

Great trip but tour guide below expectations
3/5

We book a 5 day "High End" in Amboseli, Navaisha and Masai Mara. The email comunication to prepare the trip was tediuos. We expected the executive to give us better recommendations for planning the trip. They never let us know that they were going to pick us up at the airport in Nairobi! I had to made the transfer on my own.

Regarding our guide, he comply with the schedules and he was friendly. He was very worried that we could see all the animals as well. However, he did not communicate much with us during the games drives and did not keep us informed of what we were going to do during the day. Moreover, he was not very open to listen to questions or explain. Finally, the day we were arriving at Masai Mara's tented camp, the guide got lost along the way.

Accommodations were great. Excellent attention, great food, very comfortable rooms and very relaxing surroundings.

We had lunch outside our acomodation just once. The last day, when we went from Amani Mara to the airport we stopped for lunch on the way in a restaurant that was far from being the standard of the tour I booked (High End). I will not extend talking about the supposed high-end binoculars and the surprise charge of 3.5% to pay by credit card (unacceptable).

Fantastic in all areas!
5/5

Everything was fantastic! Communication through planning, pick up, traveling, lodging, everything! Would highly recommend!
