Great travel experience,I have a very memorable memory in Kenya
5/5

Bought a local phone card at the airport, and there is Internet on the road, including the prairies, only a few places without Internet. The travel experience was very good, upgraded to a jeep, four people travel except for two carpools with four people we know. Tour guide Francis is super nice and feels like Captain Tour guide! People on the road have car problems and actively help, actively look for animals in the grassland we are always the first to find animals. The hotel has also been upgraded and the accommodation is very good, I think it is much better than what I have stayed in the UK and Europe. The food is also good, the fruit pipe is enough, watermelon and papaya are very sweet. All in all, this experience is so good, a little reluctant to leave. I will choose this travel agency again next time.

Meticulous, thoughtful, giving us the perfect experience
5/5

First of all, I must pay a compliment to our guide, Francis. He is sunny and cheerful, and knows many interesting local stories and animal knowledge. He is eager to explain all kinds of knowledge to us and solve life problems for us (help us with communication, medical problems). He also helped us find all the animals we were interested in and helped us take some amazing photos

Accommodation: We had many memorable nights and the accommodation was very, very good, belonging to the local luxury hotel class. Our room is clean, bright, spacious and comfortable. The staff was impeccable and very friendly.

Diet: Most of the diet is a buffet that allows us to choose from a wide variety of vegetables and meat products. The cuisine is very diverse, combining the styles of different countries.

The overall trip was surprisingly comfortable and satisfying. Recommend everyone to play!

Nice Accommodation and brilliant Game Drives!
5/5

We had a beautiful Safari with our Guide Leroy from Jocky Tours. He‘s such a funny and positive guy who knows the Mara very well. He showed us so many beautiful animals and took us to breathtaking places in the National Reserve. We would definitely recommend doing a Safari with Jocky Tours and even with Leroy.

5/5

We had great Safari experience will definitely visit Masai Mara again with the help of Jack Tours. Our tour guide Leroy Mukami was well experienced with excellent communication and driving skills and very helpful. He navigated through the park roads and ensured we had a lifetime experience seeing all nature has to offer. Plenty and a wide variety of wild animals. Our infant son couldn’t have enough of it as well. We recommend him for any Mara or other planned visits in Kenya

Great tour!
5/5

The tour was amazing! Jeff was great and did an excellent job of finding all of the animals in the parks and he was so knowledgeable on all of the animals and the birds. We enjoyed every bit of this tour including the lodging and overall it was a great experience.

John is 5 star guide that made this tour memorable.
5/5

We booked for a 3 day, 2 night mid-budget Maasai Mara safari tour as a party of two; a British foreigner and a Kenyan national. We found Jocky Tours (JT) after comparing various operators online and closely reading reviews where JT appeared as one of the highest and most rated operators in Nairobi. They did not disappoint.

Our tour guide was John who was charming and knowledgeable from the moment we left Nairobi until we returned. He was a safe driver throughout, always making good progress without ever risking passenger safety.

John clearly knew the Maasai Mara reserve like the back of his hand and quite what magic he used to locate the wildlife was beyond us. His masterful skills meant that during the two days of safari we saw, lions, a leopard, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, wildebeest, crocodiles, buffalo, topis, lilac-breasted rollers, numerous species of antelope, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, warthogs, ostrich, so many species of bird and much more. The only thing we didn’t get a sighting of was David Attenborough :))

Not only did John locate the wildlife with what seemed like supernatural ease, we were nearly always the first to encounter them before other vehicles arrived. John always ensured that we had a prime viewing positions for great photo opportunities. Instagram thanks him :)

John was good company throughout the trip and ensured that all passengers had an excellent safari experience.

Thank you John!

We stayed for two nights at the Jambo Mara Safari Lodge. Our room was modern, clean and spacious with a balcony looking out to the Mara. It was quite cold in the room, early morning and late evening. The food was average and felt out of step with the overall quality of the hotel. An improvement here would be welcome.

Communication with Jocky Tours prior to booking was generally good although became slightly fractious when we asked for clarification over the tour itinerary whilst we were attempting to compare offers from competing operators of which there are many. On reflection, I think this may have been a misunderstanding and was quickly forgotten.

Overall, this was a 5 star tour experience and we would book with Jocky Tours again.

Fully planned and we'll executed safari
5/5

We had taken 5 days safari which included 2 days Masai mara , Nakuru park , lake Naivash and geothermal plant.

We were picked up from the airport to Naribo office where we made our payment and put safari jeep was ready by then.

We had a very good tour guide by the name Alex. He was very nice and cooperative

We had a 6 hour journey to Masai mara . After reaching we had lunch and planned evening game drive. We were able to see lot of animals there back to our camp.

The Masai mara camp is also different experience. You stay in a tent near by the park. They would setup camp fire each day. Only thing is problem with charging your device but this you could do in the safari jeep or in the main tent

Food is standard though out . Rice , chapati , 2 curries, fruits

Next day also we went Masai park and travelled till mara river where we had lunch.

We had seen a very big hurd of elephants and 5 lions. This we should thank Alex for his efforts in driving and communication ing with other drivers to know where we could locate animals

Days 3 we just visited Masai village And came back to Nakuru

Day 4 was our favorite day. The Natkur park is small but we were lucky enough to see lions and giraffes very closely. Zebra, gazzels , wild buffalos you could also see lot.

On the salt water lake you could see lot of pili cans and flamingo. This site was just amazing

Late in the evening there was a boat ride to crecent island. This is the best you can see animal with very close proximity

Day 5 we just visited the geothermal power plant. This is not so good as others you just have to cycle or walk though

Overalls we had lot of fun . Our driver/tour guide Alex completely took care of us though out the 5 days. We are thankful for jockey tours and Alex

Went on a 6 day budget safari to Masai Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha and Amboselli. Had a great time. The driver James Gachina was very knowledgeable and made extra effort to make us see all the animals.
