5 STAR to the drivers/tour guide of the itinerary, dissatisfied with the tour operator Robert
3/5

PLZ READ MY REVIEW AS A REFERENCE BEFORE YOUR BOOKING
Overral it's a fantastic experience of safaris in Kenya, I went different national parks or reserves with 3 different drivers, Stanley, Leban, Manifest, under their expertise, I saw all the BIG FIVE and other species of wild animals and birds, even stepping on Tanzania for couples of hours.
But I still wanted to highlight the problems I was facing, leaving other travelers a kind reminder.
1. Generally speaking, there is NO big difference to book a tour from any operator from this website. Cuz all budget tour they mix ppl with different group, for example, my Masai Mara tour, 8 ppl from 6 agencies, my Ambselli tour, other 6 ppl from 4 agencies.
2. Dishonesty of Robert: Operator Robert PROMISED me in email, his agency is the operator, but actually not even 1 driver is working for him. He's the guy attracting customers from website, hotels, streets etc. then he handled ppl to drivers/ tour guides. Therefore, the experience of safari good or not, definitely depends on your luck to meet a driver. So why spend so much time to compare different agencies here?
3. Robert PROMISED in email, single room is provided during the whole itinerary. But in Masai Mara, Ambesselli, 4 nights I stayed in a shared room (tripple room in Masai, the worst room in Ambesselli). even in Nakuru & Naivasha, i need to negotiate with hotels by myself to get a single room, reception said never receive the request from Robert! WHAT A BIG SHAME! After paying off the money, Robert broke all the promises and disappeared, no replying my emails and phone calls
4. the first day is diastrous, they picked up at 7am from my hotel, then we started the tour 10am, Robert spent 3 hours in downtown to looking for ppl and agencies to make up a group. then he asked 8 ppl packed in a 7 seated sedan, 4 ppl seated on 3 chair, 2 hour driving to meeting point... it was HORRIBLE... thanks God Koreans travellers are slim

Great safari with James!!
5/5

It was really great! James made the safari wonderfull. Good communication, good hospitality and because of James we saw the big 5 very closely. He is a good driver and very kind and helpfull!

The service from Karibu is good! Thank you - you made it a excellent trip!

Great first impression of Kenya in a few days
5/5

It is amazing how much we saw in just a few days. It is not a trip when you want to rlax, bcause it is a lot of driving. Ialways felt safe on the road, because our driver Richard was excellent. If you only have afew days and want to see a lot, choose this kind of trip.

Great experience! We saw the Big Five!
4/5

The communications were very well organised, the camp where we slept was also very nice. Our tent had a private toilet and a bed. The safari tour was also great, we saw many animals and cheetas hunt. It was very exciting!! I recommend it.

Just perfect!
5/5

I am a Spanish solo traveller and booked a 12-day safari with Karibu Safaris and I can say that I am satisfied 100% with the experience. This has definitely been a trip in a lifetime!

My itinerary was all about covering as many national parks as possible and I am glad to have done so. Otherwise, I would have surely missed the chance to see some animals. The parks included Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Tarangire. I have seen ALL kinds of animals: the big five from a close distance (leopard and rhino are quite difficult to see) and others such as jackals, hyrax, adama lizards, crocodiles, hippos... We even had hyenas and mongoose freely wondering around our camp in Serengeti!

I have to say that as chaotic as the organization may seem, everything turns out fine at the end. Do not expect great communication or information from the company in the western european style. Neither do so with following your schedule as previously stated. Some changes are always made on the go, but at least in my case, always for the better. African people are most of the times nice and friendly and won't try to scam you. In my case, the company even arranged one extra day and were helpful at all times.
