Super Safari!
5/5

We traveled with a group of four to a safari in Kenya. We did a lot of research and contacted Seven by Far to book our trip. Sylvester at Seven by Far handled all of our flights and bookings. Our itinerary was very full with 4 parks and air transportation between them. The lodging suggested and booked by Sylvester was outstanding. The flights and transportation to them went flawlessly. Our guides at each park were skilled, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. The guides were more like friends than guides. Sylvester even handled the appointment for our Covid tests to fly home. There were no surprises - except some extras that our tent camps threw in. I would highly recommend Sylvester and Seven by Far.
(And yes we saw the “Big 5” and much more!)

Magic in East Africa
5/5

I booked a 14 day tour of Kenya and Tanzania starting 21 September and ending 5 October 2021. Because of covid, the airlines kept changing the schedule including dropping the flights. Sylvester, the manager, was able to change my accommodations each time. Seven by Far is a CUSTOMER SERVICE DRIVEN COMPANY. They want to make sure you have an excellent trip and will do everything to make that happen. Since my flight arrived in Nairobi after midnight, they provided a room free of charge for the first night.
I had 3 excellent driver/guides who provided exciting commentary about the animals, the people and the terrain. Each day we would see at least 1000 animals. They included a hot air balloon ride over Masai Mara where we saw more than 1000 wildebeest lined up behind the leader ready to go from Kenya to Tanzania. The accommodations were excellent.

This is probably the best tour company I have ever used.

Now is the time to go. Covid is NOT a problem in either Kenya nor Tanzania.

Highly recommended! Efficient organising, good communication, good value, friendly guides.
5/5

Highly recommended!

We booked a 6-day safari trip and were offered an extra complimentary night in Nairobi. Since our flight arrived in the early morning hours, Sylvester and his team sorted out an early check in for us and then showed us around Nairobi and surrounding areas.

Next day we were introduced to our safari guide and driver Antony. Antony is very friendly, talkative and easy going person, he always pointed out random facts along the way and shared a lot of knowledge about Kenyan culture, animals, nature and generally anything interesting that we came across. He was great in selecting routes and spotting the wildlife and also avoiding the traffic.
We were driven around in a powerful but comfortable Land cruiser. I’m happy I booked a private safari. Being only two of us in the Land cruiser we were flexible with planning our days and game drives and also had plenty of space to move around while standing up and watching the animals. Some other vehicles we met along the way looked pretty rammed. We were also booked into beautiful lodges during our stay.
One of the accommodations was facing some connectivity problems but Sylvester promptly managed to re-book us to a different property the next day.
The communication was great throughout the whole booking process. We had to cancel our initial booking for Oct 2020 due to passport issues, however, that was not an issue for Seven by Far and we rescheduled for Sept 2021 with no problems whatsoever. Also, we needed to have a negative PCR test for our flight back home, it was conveniently arranged to be taken in our lodge in Maasai Mara by a mobile unit on our last night in the park, so the results were ready in time for our flight.

Overall, we had an amazing safari trip to Kenya. Big thank you to Sylvester for organising the trip and to Antony, our guide, for being amazing and looking after us the whole time.

Hakuna matata indeed :)

Wonderfully coordinated trip
5/5

We’ve just returned from our 2 week safari + beach trip to Kenya and I’m so happy we booked our trip with Seven by Far. I started corresponding with Sylvester in the spring and throughout this entire process, he has been incredibly patient, even as I changed my mind on our itinerary and lodges. I did find that communicating with him on WhatsApp as we got closer to the trip was easier than over email. I normally plan all my travels on my own, but it was wonderful having Sylvester and his team on our side to coordinate everything. We had a few minor hiccups during the trip but Sylvester sorted them out in due time and I’m glad we had him to sort things out. Sylvester also helped coordinate our PCR Covid tests required to leave the country – we didn’t even have to leave our hotel room in Nairobi!

Our driver for the first half of the safari, Anto, picked us up at NBO after an evening flight and dropped us off at a hotel by the airport. We departed the next morning for our drive to Ol Pejeta (1 night) and then drove to Samburu (2 nights). The driving distance and time wasn’t too bad for the two legs and the 4x4 was well-maintained and comfortable. Anto is a great driver and guide – we were able to see the Big 5 and Northern 5 during the first few days. After Samburu, we flew to the Mara, where Sylvester arranged for our stay at 2 camps – 1 in the National Reserve and 1 in the Naboisho Conservancy. At these two lodges, we used the drivers/guides in the camps. In the Mara, we also did a hot air balloon safari – a wonderful experience that Sylvester helped coordinate.

After our safari, Sylvester arranged for our flights and local transport at Diani Beach. Upon our return from Diani, Sylvester arranged for another driver, Joseph, to meet us at Wilson airport and a few days later, drop us back off at NBO for our international flight home. Thanks to Sylvester, Anto, and Joseph for a wonderfully coordinated and worry-free trip!
