Caring and always available
Our East African adventure. Kenya and Tanzania very safe and welcoming countries. Organised by Sylvester and his team. He was always checking that our itinerary was going to plan and that we were happy. Any problems were dealt with quickly. We saw so much in a short time, including the big five and more. we were able to get really close up to elephants and lions, which surrounded us in our secure jeep. The hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara was spectacular, and very professionally organised. We saw crocodiles, hippos, and endangered black rhinos. One camp was at the base of Kilimanjaro which is a beautiful site to see. Another was in the centre of the Serengeti, surrounded by wild life. We were protected by Masai warriors who guarded the camps. The food was excellent and plentiful and very fresh. Everybody was extremely friendly. Our trip was well organised, we were cared for by good drivers and guides during the day, and staff and security guards in the lodges and camps at night. Every day was a different experience, after safari we were taken by a short flight to the exotic and historical islands of Zanzibar, where we relaxed in an amazing resort all inclusive. There was lots to see and do there. We did a tour of Stone town, which was included. We also swam with dolphins, snorkelled, and did some jet skiing. On two days we just enjoyed the atmosphere. Then at the end of our trip we were escorted back to Nairobi for our flight home.

Professional and caring, goes the extra mile
We had an amazing private mid-range 8-day trip in Kenya for two with Seven by Far in mid-February. We were well taken care of throughout the trip. The team was very responsive through e-mail and whatsapp. We went to Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and Masaai Mara. Our driver guide, Evans, speaks perfect English, is very experienced and professional. He understood our priorities and proposed adjustments to our schedules. He kept adding new birds and mammals to our seen list every day and made the list really long. Evans was also very conscious about good lighting and angle for photo-taking, we were well-positioned to see cheetahs, leopards, lions, black and white rhinos (just to name a few) walking towards us for really good close-ups. We saw a leopard hunting for warthogs (though it failed) and lioness feasting in Masaai Mara; five cheetahs feasting and 22 giraffes wandering in Amboseli; and more. Watching baby zebras, baby elephants, baby warthogs, baby etc. was a plus to the trip. The jeep was well-maintained and cleaned everyday with bean bags provided for photography. We are thrilled by the extraordinary experience with the wildlife and happy for what we paid.

Amazing Maasai Mara safari!
I am so glad that I booked my safari with Seven By Far Travel.
From the moment I requested a quote, Sylvester (owner) was very helpful and knowledgeable and always responded quickly to emails.
We did a 3 day/2 night safari at the Masai Mara. Our driver/guide, Anthony, was great. Very knowledgeable and experienced. We went in March and the weather was perfect and it was the end of the dry season so we had some late afternoon storms. We saw lots of animals including 4 of the big 5.
Our accommodation was great and all round a great experience and good value for money.
I would recommend Seven By Far Travel without any hesitation.

Trip of a lifetime!!
After researching many safari options, we chose Seven By Far because of their great reviews, reasonable prices and good communication. There was a little bit of confusion and miscommunication in the beginning while working out exact itinerary details. However, when we asked for a video call to clear everything up, there was no hesitation. We jumped on a WhatsApp video call with Sylvester that same week and he was able to resolve all of our questions and concerns. After that video call, it was immediately clear that Sylvester was a very genuine and caring person. We felt very comfortable trusting him to finalize all the remaining details of our vacation.
Our two weeks in Kenya and Tanzania went very smoothly. We had 3 different game drive guides: John, Cosmas and Charles. All were wonderful! We ran into a minor issue with our medical exemption for the yellow fever vax at the Tanzanian border. Sylvester was immediately on top of it. He was there for us the second we texted him, made phone calls on our behalf, and resolved the issue ASAP. It was very impressive how well he handled that.
Finally, one small request I had made during the planning stages was forgotten. However, on our last day, Sylvester surprised us with an event to make up for the forgotten request. It was very generous and kind of Sylvester and we were very impressed with his resolve to tie up any loose ends, no matter how small, ensuring we were happy with every aspect of our vacation.
We could not recommend Sylvester and his team enough. They were amazing, professional, and reliable. We would definitely book with them again!!

Seven by Far are Sincere and Proactive
We chose Seven by Far Travel because they were proactive when we first contacted them. They always replied to our emails very soon with their suggestions on the itineraries. The price for the tour was also reasonable.
For the trips in Kenya, We have been taken good care of by Seven by Far Travel. We also learnt a lot from the Game Drives in the National Reserves / Parks.
The only thing which needs to be improved is the arrangements on the East Coast but we have already talked to them and I am sure this would be fixed once they have new tours over there.
In general, they are sincere, caring. My family and I enjoyed our time in Kenya.
Cosmos was the BEST. Totally present and an animal tracker at its core.
Seven By Far is 5 STAR! In African Safari Tours,! I am American, and have been to Africa before. As well as on 3 different safari with other companies. Seven By Far was truly the best safari tour company in every way! It was one of our best trips and definitely our best safaris ever.
Our tour guide Cosmos was everything and more, anyone could ever ask for. He was totally present with us. Not on his phone, not distracted, but really there with us. He took the care to listen to all that we said, even when we didn’t realize we mentioned some thing by that day or the next, we saw the animal that we spoke of., Sylvester, who managed our whole trip was supreme. His communication was timely and precise. He took care of every request and would go out of our his way to make our trip and vacation the best experience. Anytime we needed something he was sure to be there. He also went out of his way to see us on our trip on two different occasions. When we had an issue with the airlines, he took care of everything.
The Food was delicious and had so many many options to choose from. Including vegan and gluten-free. It was all fresh and amazingly good. The accommodations we couldn’t have asked better. The bed in the Serengeti in our big tent, was the best I’ve ever slept in any hotel.
I will be going back to Africa again in 2025 and I will for sure use Seven By Far tour company.
I promise you will not be sorry if you choose this company!

Seven By Far Tours is a friendly, well organised and helpful tour operator
Seven By Far Tours was recommended to us by some friends who had travelled to Kenya several times using the company to organise their trips. Sylvester and his team planned a detailed itinerary for us and were highly flexible and accommodating when we made suggestions to adapt the trip to our needs. The planning and execution of the trip were excellent, and the chosen accommodation fully met or exceeded our expectations on every occasion. Our thanks must go especially to our driver Hassan, who showed great skill in negotiating the vagaries of the terrain and finding the best locations for us. He was also very knowledgeable and supplied us with interesting facts and information as we went along.
As keen bird and wildlife photographers, we can be somewhat demanding and 'difficult' when it comes to positioning the vehicle to make the most of the light conditions and photographic opportunities. However, Hassan soon realised what was required, was always very helpful and showed great skill and patience in manoeuvring the vehicle to ensure we got the shots we wanted. The abundant wildlife that Hassan found for us in all the places we visited gave us many great photo opportunities.
Thanks to all the Seven By Far team for arranging a thoroughly enjoyable and successful trip!

Provided excellent service, attention to detail and delivered all that was promised.
Seven by Far provided an excellent itinerary for a very reasonable price. We were able to relax and enjoy the experience because all the details (from the time we arrived in Nairobi until we departed) were planned and executed by Seven By Far. Sylvester was our main contact and was responsive to our needs. We found Seven By Far to be extremely reliable.
We had 11 nights in four different camps in Kenya. Our favorite camps were Saruni Samburu and Leopard Hill Base Camp. Each camp had excellent accommodations , guides and chefs. Our guide Peter (a Seven by Far employee) was a wonderful guide and our favorite.
We saw every animal we hoped to see (multiple times);watched elephants crossing a river while having a camp breakfast (with giraffes on the other side of the river), had Happy Hour in the jeep while watching a watching a leopard lounging in a tree, observed a pride of lions(18) for over an hour, saw the wildebeest/zebra migration…the list goes on and on.
We would highly recommend Seven By Far Travel when you are planning a safari.

When you tour with Seven by Far, you're family!
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of taking a one week honeymoon safari tour with Seven by Far in Kenya! It was an unforgettable experience - we toured Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, and Amboseli. From the moment we booked with Seven by Far, we felt like we were part of their family. They offer affordable, private safaris that are tailored to your needs. They truly go above and beyond to ensure that your trip is perfect! Our driver, Hassan, was not only knowledgeable about the animals on our game drives, but made the trip even more special with his sense of humor and friendly personality. He was also respectful towards the wildlife during our game drives, which was important to us. After a week of hanging out together every day, it was sad to leave him.
Booking with a smaller company like Seven by Far means that you will receive personalized attention and be treated like family. They truly exceeded our expectations and made our honeymoon unforgettable. We are so grateful for the amazing time we had with Seven by Far and can't wait to book another trip with them. Special shoutout to Silvia, Sylvester, Hassan, and the entire reservation team!
