Professional! Friendly! Knowledgeable!
My wife and I booked this trip 2 weeks before our departure. We visited Kenya and did a safari trip with Kenya safaris holiday (current name is - journeysbeyondafrica)
Simon is the tour operator and I’ve been talking to him daily for 2 weeks. He is extremely accommodating and would do all the research that we want and get back to me. He is very professional and extremely helpful. After booking everything we changed our hotels/itinerary etc but he never said no to anything and accommodated all our requests
Lastly, our guide Peter was amazing. He was with us for all 7 days and he is just amazing. He is patient, polite, friendly and knowledgeable. We spotted everything and Peter played a huge part in it. Peter has been doing this for over 10 years and he is very experienced with everything. He even knows the hotel staff and their drivers which makes it easy to communicate when you are on a game drive if they spot something else. We throughly enjoyed with Peter. We got more than our expectations from him and Simon.
If you are doing a long driving safari and jumping place to place within Kenya then look no further and book with Simon and ask for PETER!!
This was an awesome experience. Hope this review helps whoever is reading this and planning a Kenya vacation.
Wonderful trip organised by professionals!
We went on a 5 days’ safari trip with Kenya Safaris Holiday (Journeys Beyond Africa is their current legal name) round Kenya along Nairobi-Masai Mara-Naivasha-Amboseli-Mombasa (Diani Beach) route. That was our first safari and it went smoothly overcoming our expectation! Shall I brief on the safari-operator selection process… For the search of the agent we used all famous travel sites such as SafariBookings, TripAdvisor, Winski forum board, as the result about 10 local safari companies of high ratings and positive reviews had been chosen. They were sent out the letters asking for quotations with our requirements and questions concerning the forthcoming safari. Simon , Kenya Safaris Holiday’s manager was one of the first to get to us back and started to process our enquiry, which was very pleasing. Simon was 24/7 in touch either through Whatsapp or by means of e-mail. At the same time we started to receive responses from the other companies and compare the offers in the terms of the programs, conditions, prices and other details. Simon turned out to be the best negotiator and marketer, he met us partway while discussing pre-payment, accommodation and transportation issues. Through that approach his offer was the most favorable one corresponding with all the requirements of ours; overall, during the communication he worked out a very positive image of a professional appealing to mutual trust. It is worth mentioning that we did not find any negative reviews of his company, Kenya Safaris Holiday on TripAdvisor site, which was very important as well. Moreover, by chance browsing Instagram I encountered a lady who had made a trip with Simon’s company a year before; in the posts of hers she praised him personally not only for the safari well-organized but for his invaluable assistance with some issues after having finished it. Thus, we worked out a positive impression of Simon as a reliable and generous individual before personal acquaintance. All those factors mattered much so as to choose his company as an organizer of our first safari! So we are not sorry at all about our choice, which was totally right: every item quoted and stated beforehand was fulfilled and implemented exactly, i.e. a private trip, a highly-qualified guide loving his job, LandCriuser, a technically-perfect off road vehicle, wonderful accommodation in camps and lodges during the trip, comfortable transportation, perfect organization and timing. Simon and James, our guide, personally met us at the airport at 4 am, we got acquainted, briefed on some pre-trip matters and off we went. Our exciting trip started from out of there. Meanwhile, I would like to tell a bunch of nice words about James, our guide. That is a charming person who gets a pleasure doing the job. He is a real aficionado, an exciting conversationalist, a professional photographer and keen and experienced driver and which is most a nice person! James cared for us for all 5 days of the trip. I must say he is very knowledgeable and curious, knows much about local flora and fauna, he can speak hours about that and that is why we were all ears during the trip. As for the safari trip itself this experience cannot be described just with a few words, we saw and watched decades species of animals and birds, some rare ones that are hard to see, e.g. a serval, a leopard, etc. That was made much possible due to the experience of the guide who could easily notice even the “shyest” animal s. I don’t mention numerous lions, giraffes, buffalo, zebras, hyenas, ostriches, hippos, crocodiles, wildebeests and other animals. We managed to see 4 out of The Great Five animals, everyone except a rhino. Though, it might be the reason to return back! We made our trip at the end of July during the Great Migration of animals from Tanzanian Serengetti to Masai Mara in Kenya when hundreds of thousands wildebeests and zebras migrate in the search of new pastures. Once, we were excited to stay for lunch under the tree during the day trip watching the wildebeests making their way, that was captivating. Our 5 days went flashing leaving us with pleasant and unforgettable memoirs and impressions to recollect, also gigabytes of photos and videos of living African nature to remember and new knowns to communicate. Afterwards we stayed at the ocean in Diani Beach still recollecting and reliving that again, the experience during the safari trip that is. The communication with Simon and James is still on after our returning back home; they have been and are in touch. Moreover, during our stay in Nairobi before making a return trip we managed to meet up Simon to have some coffee and good conversation to share the impressions. By all means we are to recommend Kenya Safaris Holiday team to organize the best safari trip in Kenya as you will never forget that!
Excellent experience with Kenya Safari Holidays
Perfect selection of lodges and tour arrangements were made by the operator. Tour guide Peter is very good in finding Lions and other predators.
I would highly recommend them for your future safaris.
Excellent organization! Ponctual and friendly stuff.
Following the good suggestions of the safari planner we have combined the 3 day Masai Mara safari with the Hell’s gate biking safari.
Well organized, we didn’t loose any time waiting at the park entrance or at the bike rental shop.
Along the road Simon gave us some explanations about the place and animals we have seen. The presence of the jeep driving behind us gave me a feeling of security especially when the bunch of wild buffaloes decided to cross our way.
It’s about 7 km bike ride but if you don’t feel like riding the bike back, you can still hop on the jeep and go back by car.
Although I recommend to bike both ways, you will get to see many wild animals in the open space.
Thank you so much for our 7-day safari,we will never forget these emotions! Everything was perfect, and we would love to come back here.We were with a child of three years old, and everything went just amazing ! Simon arranged everything: hotels, safaris,a wonderful guide Peter.Our guide showed us a lot of animals,we even found a leopard and a cheetah)We recommend this company to everyone,you are the best,thank you for our best holiday!
