We couldn't be more satisfied with everything
When we first requested an offer we didn't really know how long and which parks to visit. Allan was very helpful in offering us different options and length that would work for our family with 2 kids 8 & 11y. The communication was really well and I really appreciate Allans kind communication. Finally we ended up booking 5 days Nairobi to Amboselli, Tsavo West and East and ending in Diani Beach. We asked for a german speaking guide for our kids and opted for a Land Cruiser. We ended up with George as a driver and Thomas as the german speaking guide. Thomas spoke german really well and was very knowledgeable and if he didn't know anything he asked George which seems to have very in depth knowledge so we got a lot of insights in flora & fauna.
George is probably one of the best drivers you can get. When we went to the Rhino sanctuary and no Rhino showed up, he stayed overtime until all other cars except 3 left without seeing a Rhino. The ranger then however said our car could go up the lookout point for a few minutes to spot the Rhino with our binocular. The next day we were driving back to lodge when there were some lions close by with a lot of cars already there. He then again, waited until all other cars left and we could move closer and some more lions came passing right beside our car and we could see them close by.
We were lucky to see all the big 5 and so many more animals. We really enjoyed the different parks and vegetation inside the parks and had an awesome time. The 2 hour walking safari with a local ranger was a great experience as well, we learned a lot and the ranger was a really nice guy.
The lodges we had were good as well. The best food we had was at the Kiba Lodge, Kilaguni Serena Lodge was amazing as we could watch the animals (Elefants, Zebras, Water Bocks, Giraffs...) right from our dinner table. Aruba Ashnil was also ok. One thing to critizise would be that in Serena and Aruba they only had one big bed and a small bed in the room, which was too small for a adult and 2 kids. At Aruba we asked to add a fourth bed, which they did, but that should have been arranged right away.
It was a lifetime experience which we will never forget.

One of my best trips in life!
The trip organized by Allan was amazing! We went to the Masai Mara (Kenya) Serengeti (Tanzania) , and Ngorongoro s Crater, and Biwindi’s Impenetrable Park (Uganda, and Gorilla Trek and amazing lake lodge). Our lodges were amazing, glamping style, great food, and amazing natural surroundings. We had the best Guides, Bohr, Agustine, and Leo. We were a party of two and had the jeep to our selves the whole trip. Such a memorable trip! Totally worth while and life changing :)

Responsive,effient and most generous
Tour operator Alan is just a click away on Whats App. Alan will tailor make the perfect safari trip to suit you. From pick up to drop off you will be attended to by the most professional driver/guide Brian and we were fed most delicious meals wherever we stayed.. The accomodation was beyond our expectations and the array and variety of animals was just legendary. Definitely value for money!

Communicative, helpful and a fabulous trip
Allan discussed our itinerary in full beforewe left and arranged for our guide and driver, Brian to pick us up in Mombassa for our five day safari to Tsavo East and West. We stay in two beautiful lodges with views from our rooms over waterholes. Brian was great, taking us on brilliant game drives, seeing 37 lions in one day and a vast host of other animals, plus some gorgeous countryside. We had a walk with a ranger too, which was fascinating. The food in the lodges was delicious and altogether we have arrive back in Nairobi full of fabulous memories. Value for money? Absolutely! In fact it was better than we expected. Thank-you Brian and, of course, Allan.

Although we had booked our tour pre-pandemic Alan honoured our booking and communicated well throughout. Enkorok camp was a great choice for a safari base. George was a fantastic guide and looked after us brilliantly all week.

Great guide, and good variety of safaris
We did a private safari with our 3 children who were 9-15. We all really enjoyed our time and the children were far more engaged than we expected. We went for a safari van which was fine but probably increased the drive time between locations. The itinerary wasn’t quite what we had been sent as the drive times between locations were longer (but we enjoyed these as got to see so much of Kenya). Our guide however was honest about this from the outset and ensured we still got lots of time on game drives - we did 2 full day game drives in the 5 days. We saw every animal you could wish to including leopards, only Mt Kilimanjaro was elusive and stayed behind cloud. The accommodation improved with every move but was all great and had pools (but be aware the pools are often closed if arriving late and hard to fit in if leaving early!). I would really recommend Back if Africa, their communication before was great and we had a fabulous safari.

The trip was breath taking. The service was excellent, food delicious, and you get a lot for your money especially if you travel witha group together. My driver went so far for my to see everything, and it felt like they enjoyed you having the best time. I recommend this to all my friends, and I will definitely be back, using Back to Africa Adventure.

Quality Company, Quality Safari
We had an excellent experience with Back of Africa on our recent Kenyan Safari! Our guide Simon was fantastic - it was like he had a sixth sense to determine where we would find animals and be able to drive very close to them. He was fun, knowledgable and very professional. The quality of the lodgings were very good to excellent, our Land Cruiser was the perfect way to drive around the savanna and the animals we saw (and pictures we got) were amazing! Highly recommended!

Great itinerary, wonderful guide, professional service
My husband and I did a 7 day / 6 night safari. It was a trip of a lifetime. Allan was extremely prompt in responding to queries and everything was well organized as agreed. Our driver Elliott was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the animals and a good driver on the Kenyan roads which were often in bad condition.
The highlight of our trip was staying at the Serena lodge at Tsavo West overlooking the waterhole. We also enjoyed our stay at the Sopa lodge in Nakaru (amazing view) and Keekorok lodge at Masai Mara (with a hippo pool). The food at all the lodges was delicious and varied. 2 of the lodges (Kibo at Amboseli and Aruba at Tsavo East) did not have WiFi in the rooms but that was a minor inconvenience
We were lucky to see over 25 lions at very close range during our safari as well as dozens of elephants and other wild life.
The only thing I would change is getting a 4 wheel vehicle next time as the roads (especially near Amboseli) are terrible.
I highly recommend Back of Africa. They provided great service and value. Allan was efficient and well organized and we highly recommend our driver Elliott
