Fabulous! Carol was wonderful to plan with and Jackson was an excellent guide.
Communication with Carol was terrific during the planning stages. The actual trip with our guide, Jackson, exceeded all my wildest dreams and expectations - it was over the top wonderful. All of our accommodation was very nice, whether tented camp or lodge. Rooms and facilities were very nice, clean, food was good and staff were lovely. My only regret was not staying 2 nights+ at all locations - we had a mix of 1 and 2 nights, covering 6 parks in 10 days. It was all good, but the travel time between parks and lodges was long and I would recommend a 2 day stop at each location. Our game viewing was great in all the parks and reserves - each location was well worthwhile and we were thrilled. We had a total of 13 days in Kenya then we flew to Botswana for another 7 nights in 3 lodges then back to Nairobi. Our travel in Kenya will remain a highlight. I cannot recommend Tekko’s staff enough and Carol and Jackson were dream partners - absolutley excellent.
Wonderful 8 day safari with Jackson
Our initial contact with Tekko Tours was with Carol, who was very efficient, patient and detailed with planning our safari. All communications was done via email and was super-easy.
As for the actual safari, our guide Jackson was phenomenal. He is obviously a true professional and knows his stuff. His knowledge of the parks, animals, roads, people etc. is bar none. We saw all of the Big 5 and in the Mara he actually spotted two male lions before anyone else, and we were alone with the animals for at least 15 minutes. He was also a great and safe driver which is important once you see the driving situation in Kenya. In addition, he is a really nice person!
We can whole-heartedly recommend Tekko as your safari operators.
Excellent professionalism and a pleasure to have taken our safari with Tekko
Maggie was the primary contact with us and she was very patient and helpful in planning the safari. Tekko's price and service definitely beat other operators whom we were in touch with. The safari itself went well and we saw all the animals that we hoped and more. Although our vehicle needed to be swapped due to some issues, our driver Stephen made sure it never affected the safari itself. William, who took over the tour, was also very professional. I would definitely use Tekko again when we return!
Safari to Masai Mara
We used this company for our safari to Masai Mara in December. It was great that they organized everything, but it was expensive for 3 nights. Once we got to the hotel, we couldn’t figure out why it was so expensive because our camp wasn’t too great. The safari was amazing though, the guide and driver were amazing and made our trip, but they were more affiliated with the hotel rather than this company. We were told there would be WiFi, but there wasn’t. Only a few hours of electricity each day. Carol was great, and I asked her to reschedule my trip many times, but I think the company is charging too much. If you use credit card you also have to pay a large fee. We had a lot of fun though. You need to have a positive attitude though, like expect to get stuck in water. We stayed 3 nights at the same place which was great because we got to do more, and weren’t so exhausted moving around. We also flew on a small plane which was interesting but I’m happy we didn’t drive that far. We saw the buses that people who drove in had, they didn’t look as great as our land cruiser, more like a van.
was amazing best service and organised trip very comfortable.
couldn't of asked for a better organised trip, made to feel very safe and organised.
