Excellent service
5/5

Everything was organised well by Jocky Tours and we would not hesitate to recommend them to friends.

However, what stood out was our driver Joseph. He always rushed to grab the best spots for us to take pictures during the safari, he was accommodating, knowledgable and helpful.

He also thrived in the chaos of the demonstrations and road blockages in Nairobi, quickly found alternative routes and made us feel safe.

Amazing! My tour group had a fantastic experience from first to finish!
5/5

Leroy's resourcefulness and expertise were immediately evident, seamlessly navigating the complexities of a multinational group with varying levels of travel experience and English proficiency. Leroy's communication skills were nothing short of phenomenal. He effortlessly bridged language barriers, ensuring every member of our diverse group felt included and engaged. His organizational prowess kept our journey smooth and efficient, allowing us to maximize our time exploring the stunning landscapes and rich biodiversity of the park.

What truly set Leroy apart was his encyclopedic knowledge and captivating storytelling. He didn't just show us the sights; he brought them to life with vivid tales and fascinating insights into the unique adaptations of the animals we encountered. From the graceful giraffes to the elusive cheetahs, Leroy's explanations deepened our understanding and appreciation of the incredible wildlife around us. Leroy's dedication to providing an unforgettable experience was unwavering. He went above and beyond to ensure we explored every corner of the park, often bringing us remarkably close to the animals, yet always prioritizing their well-being and our safety. His passion for the natural world was infectious, leaving us with memories and knowledge that will last a lifetime.

In every way, Leroy was an exceptional guide, transforming our safari into an extraordinary and enriching adventure. I cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone seeking an unforgettable journey into the wild.

Wonderful and well organised tour operators
5/5

We booked our 6 days Kenya Safari Safari with Jocky tours based on reviews on SafariBookings.com and they turned out to be as good as the reviews. ‘We were picked up on time from our hotel. Papa’ John, our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and took pains to make sure we had a great Safari. We spotted the big five, and lots of zebras, giraffes as well as flamingos. All our needs were taken well care of. So a big thanks to John. Mr Emanuel at Hemingway house at Amboseli Sopa Lodge regaled us with the adventures of Ernest Hemingway.
Only one suggestion for Jocky tours- a small box of a snack and a juice would have been nice on day one at the time of starting our safari since we were picked up at 7.30 am, too early to have had our breakfast that day.

Could not have asked for a better Safari experience!!!
5/5

After a lot of research we finally decided to have our Safari experience with Jockey Tours, and I must say we enjoyed every bit of it. Our guide cum driver John (Papas as he told his nickname to be) made an extra effort to make this experience even more joyful. He was proactive and had information about a lot which added to our Safari experience. Few of the videos we could capture and attached for reference will show his enthusiasm.
We only communicated with Jockey tours through emails but they took care of everything from keeping us hydrated to making the trip a memorable one for us. The accomodation provided by them were all great and they really managed us well at Mara where they upgraded us to SOPA lodge when two rooms were not available for us at our pre booked lodge.
All in all it was great travelling with Jockey tours..
P.S.: This is especially for people reading the reviews try booking in either one of the lodges’ within the Park or one of the SOPA properties. And for the shopping freaks though the bargaining can be taxing buying from the locals is better than from anywhere…

Great tour with Francis
5/5

Great stay at Kino safari camp in Amboseli.
We had 3 days amboseli tour and we had more than we expected.

Our guide Francis was a really nice guy with great energy and he was really friendly.

The lodge we stayed was very luxurious with helpful and amazing staffs. The food there and the service there was great as well.

During the game drive, our guide answered to all questions we had and did their best so we can have the best views of the wild animals and the great Kilimanjaro.

We payed 700usd each. May Not be the cheapest but I'd say it was worth coming to Kenya.

Great tour with John Mwangi
5/5

We recently enjoyed a 6 day safari in Kenya in June 2024, guided by the incredible John Mwangi. His extensive knowledge of the local wildlife and ecosystems was truly impressive. John’s ability to spot animals from a distance and his detailed explanations made every encounter fascinating and educational.
He was always attentive to our needs, ensuring we were comfortable and tailoring the experience to our interests.

His expert driving made us feel secure throughout the journey, even on the roughest terrains.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We highly recommend John to anyone looking for an unforgettable and enriching safari experience. Thank you, John, for making our trip so special!"

Great experience with Jocky and Joshua
5/5

We went on a 4 day safari in Lake Naivasha, Hells Gate and Masai Mara

From the start to the beginning we had a super good experience with Jocky tours
The commutation was really good

Joshua is a wonderful driver and a great guide. He was very friendly, polite and knowledgeable and shared with us plenty of stories.
He took us on amazing game drives. We especially remember having a very rare and exciting sighting of a leopard with its kill

We stayed in nice hotels, the food was great and all the staff were very friendly

We look forward to going on a safari with Joshua again !

Great Tour with Johnny
5/5

I recently booked a 3 day safari excursion with Jocky Tours and had an amazing time! I'm used to staying at the Four Seasons but i'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and stayed at Lechanda Camp with Jocky Tours. As a person who has a deep fear of bugs, I had ZERO problems with my tent or the camp really for that matter and didn't leave with a single bug bite as I feared staying in the jungle. It was 3 of us in our tent and it had a toilet, with shower and hot water so all your basic necessities. The beds were comfy and had soft blankets. Our tour guide Johnny was very knowledgable of the animals and a great guide! We enjoyed our tours but on the last day we decided we wanted to head back to nairobi a little early around 6am instead of doing another game drive and he was very flexible and accommodating. Also communication prior to our arrival was very quick and responsive, Hellen was great as well! If you're looking for a great budget camp, I recommend going with Jocky Tours. We also booked a hot air balloon ride through the camp and it was great! There is a bonfire area that they can set up for you at night and I recommend bringing s'mores stuff!
