An unfortgettable trip
5/5

We did a 6 days safari-trip with jocky tours. They were very helpful in setting up a itinerary according to our ideas and made some suggestions themselves.
James, our driver, was an extremely nice guy who knew a lot about all the animals we saw. Everything was very well organized. Accomodation was good, the food as well. All for a very reasonable price. Totally recommended.

Excelente safari a buen precio! Awesome safari on budget!
4/5

Awesome safari on budget!
We did the 4 days budget safari of Maasai Mara and Nakuru Lake in a joining group with 4 more people (6 in total).
Contact with Jocky Tours was easy, good, quick response and directly. The price was also very convenient.
We confirm our safari just 2 days in advance and they contact directly us by phone.
They allow us to pay directly in cash the same day of departure; also we could pay in € and they gave us a good exchange from USA $, so we were happy.
The assigned guide was Kikitu, he is local, and speaks English and Swahili and some Spanish that he was improving with us!!
Kikitu go along with us all the trip, from the pick up at our b&b in Nairobi till the last day; so he was our driver also all the time.
He has a good knowledge about the country, the National parks and the animals.
Kikitu got to find quickly 4 of the big 5 at Maasai-Mara N.P. (Lions, Buffalos, Elephants and the hidden Leopard, very difficult to see) and we got the last one at Nakuru Lake N.P. (the white Rhino). We could saw the black Rhino, but we knew that its very difficult to find it, and Kikitu did his best for found it, so no complaints at all.

The van for safari is a Toyota, normal one, without any luxuries but good for this kind of adventure.
Kikitu was attentive all the time we had bottles of drinking water available all the time.
The Lemchada Tended Camp was even better that we expected and the meals were simple but correct.
The restaurants on the road was more simple, and in one the food was a little bad and limited; so the last day of safari, when we are coming back to Nairobi, as we both were the only people in the van, Kikitu offer us to stop for lunch in a different place, a local restaurant in Naisvhara were we eat some local food, better than the assigned restaurant and we had a good time with Kikitu.
He is the best one!!
Asante Sana.

Friendly, reliable, well organised company that delivered on all it’s promises.
5/5

Minneh was very responsive and informative in her communication, which made it very easy to book our four day trip. Daniel collected us from our accommodation on time and was very friendly, courteous and professional. Alex was our tour guide who took us to the Masai Mara - he was very informative, friendly, knowledgeable about the animals and worked really hard to ensure we had a fantastic safari experience. We stayed at Lenchada tented camp, which is very basic but comfortable. Food was good and the area was clean with friendly and helpful staff. The safari exceeded our expectations, we enjoyed two and a half days in the reserve which we recommend.

We rate Jocky Tours 4.5 stars; we would have given 5 stars if hotel in Nakuru had been better
4/5

The safari was a wonderful experience and James/Munyiri was a perfect guide! He was helpful and professional at all times; he shared his knowledge of the animal and plant life, and answered all our questions patiently and carefully. He was warm and pleasant. When on Thursday we drove along very muddy roads and one van after another was getting stuck, James proved to be the most skilled driver: he helped all the drivers get out of difficult situations and it was clear that the other drivers recognized and appreciated his skill. We felt safe with him at all times.

The only complaint we have about the safari was the hotel we stayed at in Nakuru the last night. Lanet Matfam was a sub-standard hotel: the rooms were very cramped, there was mold in the bathroom, and there was no place to sit. Certainly, for the amount of money we paid Jocky Tours, the accommodations should have been better.

All in all, we had a wonderful -indeed unforgettable — experience on safari, and we were thrilled that James was our guide! We will surely recommend Jocky Tours to others and we will encourage them to request James/Munyiri as their guide.

They were efficient and Iwe had no issues with payment, starting and ending the safari.
5/5

I communicated with Minneh of Jocky Tours & Safaris through email and she was very prompt at answering all my questions and concerns. It was very easy to pay the deposit and even the remaining balance before the start of the trip. Evans our driver and guide throughout the entire trip was a fun guy to be around. We learned a lot about the animals and environment that we did not know about. Evans was also very accommodating to our needs and always asked if we were okay. I would highly recommend this tour group for future travellers. When we decided to tour again, we'll definitely be using them again. Cheers to you all for a job well done. Thank you!!
