We met the Papa. It helped us a lot. He never gets tired and tries to help every second. We want to
5/5

I had some concerns before coming to Kenya. I could not fully communicate via email. But our tour guide was incredibly good. Hotel room safari comfort is at a high level. And I think we were given the best room in the hotel because you can watch Klimenjero from the balcony. thank you jocky

Wonderful experience in the Masai Mara!
5/5

In the beginning of June 2024 I did a three-day mid-range Safari to the Masai Mara with Jockey Tours. In one word: it was wonderful!. Jockey Tours did a great job. The tour was very well organized, the location I stayed (Jambo Mara Lodge) was excellent. Our driver and guide Raheem was awesome! He is a very good driver and guide (so we didn’t get stuck in the mud like some others), he knew where to go and tried everything to show us the wildlife of the Masai Mara. Besides that he provided with all kinds of information and he was very kind and polite. I will certainly book again with Jockey Tours (and Raheem) for a safari in Kenya.

Trustworthy operator who goes to great lengths
5/5

The seven day safari brought us to some very beautiful places in Kenya. The tour operator was very kind, and went to great lengths to drive us everywhere. The value for money and reliability is incredible. I wouldn’t have expected that for a budget tour. Sometimes the communication could’ve been better. I would’ve personally liked to have a clear idea about the next day on the evening before. Sometimes it was a surprise what we were exactly going to do.

Some improvements can be made like being more responsive and coordinated.
5/5

It was pretty good experience for first timer travelling to Kenya alone. The tour guide jimmy was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend getting him to others as a tour guide. The accommodation was okay but could be better for the price that we are paying in my opinion.

Simply a reliable and experienced tour operator
5/5

A friend of mine and I booked a safari tour to Masai Mara through Jocky Tours and Safaris at the last minute, just in the late afternoon the day before the safari trip began the following morning. We found this tour operator through internet searching and decided to book through them after reading good reviews from fellow travelers. Like those reviews, we were satisfied with their service and professionalism.

We traveled in a 4WD open-rooftop Land Cruiser jeep with 5 other travelers, so there were 7 travelers altogether plus a driver named Charles. Unlike other travelers in the same jeep but booked their safari package tour through other tour operators, we were picked from the hotel where we were staying and returned to our hotel after the 3-day safari tour concluded. Other travelers finished their safari trip at the meeting point nearby the tour operator's office and had to find their own transport back to their hotel. Our package also included lunch that we had on the way back to Nairobi on the third day. Others had to pay their own lunch that day. Though the lunch was kind of very simple buffet with not many food selections, but it was still nice to learn that we did not have to pay extra for it. :)

The safari tour itself was awesome and exciting. Charles, our driver, is a very nice person, friendly, and patient. He is an experienced and safe driver. He is also very informative and knowledgeable about animals found in the Masai Mara National Reserve. He explained to us characteristics of the animals and how to differentiate male and female giraffes or zebras, for instance. He also understands that we, travelers, would be excited if we could be as close as possible to the animals. He managed to get our jeep stop so close to the animals, the closest among other vehicles doing the same safari trip.

As this was my first safari trip, I found it very interesting and exciting. We were also blessed with good weather when we were there doing the safari trip. We had bright and sunny days the whole three days with only small showers in the evening that did not last long.

In sum, we had a good time in Masai Mara and enjoyed the safari trip that we had with Jocky Tours and Safaris. We would certainly recommend this tour operator to you who want to experience the safari trip.

5/5

The safari trip was a unique experience. Our tour operator Albert was always friendly and informative, and was able to tell us about many interesting facts and circumstances. He is also an excellent driver, careful on the road and adventurous off-road. We were completely satisfied and the atmosphere was great. We would definitely recommend him.
