A kind and brave driver
5/5

Among the Big 5, lions, elephants, leopards and buffalo were seen very close. I'm very satisfied to see the cheetah so close that I can't believe it.
1.5 days of safari tours, tent accommodation, and meals were all included, and I felt that $340 was a very good deal.
It was also very fun to pay an additional $20 and go to the village of Masai and see their dance and house.

5/5

Being able to see a variety of wild animals on safari gave Jinsei a colorful experience. They drove aggressively to get some surprises. It was the best.

I loved every minute!
4/5

The guide had a lot of knowledge, but did not share too much. Every question got answered without hesitation and was very understandable. The guide knew where to search for the animals and saw all big five and more. The only negative was that the driver drove a little too close to some lions.

Amazing operator with great guides
5/5

I travelled to Masai Mara with Jocky tours and I absolutely loved the service. We started with a stop at the Rift valley, which had spectacular views. Then we had a long drive to the Mara. Solomon was an amazing guide and a lovely driver. He drove v carefully and made sure we were always comfortable.
I really loved our group as well!! Some of the best people I’ve met.
Solomon took us on a game drive on the first day and knew all places to find animals. We were lucky to see alot of them on the first day itself.
We stayed at the Lenchada camp, which was not great, but given the price, it was pretty good.
We had good food and a decent tent and bed.
The second day was amazing. Solomon took us so close to the animals that it was amazing. Saw the Big 4. Missed the rhinos though :(
Unimaginable fun!!
We came back the 3rd day and Solomon found a route better for us as it had no traffic.

I would most definitely recommend Jocky tours to everyone!!

Majestic!
5/5

We are a group of 5 who booked via safari bookings website for a four day tour. Jockey tours was excellent in accommodating our needs, we changed the hotel pick up several times and that was not a problem (Hakuna Matata).
In short: Francis, our tour guide, is the BEST tour guide you can wish for! Extremely knowledgeable of all the different reserves, different animals and information about all the animals. He has worked as a tour guide for 13+ years and you can imagine the knowledge as his father was also a tour guide. Very well connected with other tour operators and reserve rangers and you will be able to see at least 30 different type of animals on any day!
Francis loves what he does and that spills out into positivity while on the tour! He has two rules: Be Positive and Be Patient :)

In length:
We were picked up at the hotel on the first day and we head to their office to pay for the tour. Then we head to Maasai Reserve. On the way, we stopped at the Great Rift viewpoint (unlucky for us there were clouds). Upon reaching the reserve, you have lunch, settle in your tents and then go for a Game Drive for a couple of nights before ending the day.
Next day is an early rise for a full day at the Maasai Reserve with a picnic in wild. We saw everything from elephants, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, wild beasts, buffalos to cheetahs and lions. (Among many others)
You have the option to get a tour of Alligators and Hippos for a small charge of (200 shillings pp).
Third day you can elect either for a tour of the Maasai Village ($20 USD pp) which we went for or a hot air ballon tour. The Village was very interesting and worthwhile. You get a touch of how the Maasai live and their culture. The rest of the day is the drive to Nakuru.
Last day we had more Game Drives at Nakuru national park and saw Beautiful Rhinos and flamingos!
Highly recommend this experience and specifically request for Francis!

4/5

It was was a very good Safari. We got to see all the big five, which is really rare. The drivers drove a little fast and they were sometimes maybe a bit to close to the animals. But it was worth the money and we had a lot of fun!

A good trip, a little too close some of the animals
4/5

We did drive a little to fast sometimes and way too close to some of the animals, but the rest was very good and we did see all the animals we wanted to! We also had a amazing lunch!

Passionate
5/5

The communication with Jocky tours was excellent. They were responsive and helpful with accomodating our groups needs.

The first few days in the Mara were the highlight. I would say it really depends on your guide, and we had the best man for the job, Francis. He was passionate and well connected, knew where to find the animals.

We opted for the village tour which was great, learned a lot about the masai culture but then were pressured into buy dodgy and expensive souvenirs. There was also an option to buy other souvenirs which we did (at a decent price). The village people were very friendly and accomodating.

Lake Nakuru was great, we saw many rhinos. The accomodation was dissapointing because we were expecting a nicer resort for the night but last minute change.

4/5

I had a good experience with this safari! We saw a lot of animals, and the guides had a lot of knowledge. The only negative thing is that they drove very close to a lion, which stressed it. Other than that, I found the safari ethical.

Very knowledgeable, fun and professional
5/5

Our tour to Masai Mara Lenchada and tented camp and nakuru national park was a great experience. Our guide Francis was very knowledgeable and professional and allowed us to view a vast range of wild animals. Only one missed was the leopard! Only draw back was our planned hotel
Wasn’t available and required a last minute change to a lesser hotel. But good value overall
