Comptency, reactivity and kidness
We really enjoyed our 7 days safari, our guide, Salomon was great ! He spotted all the animals and explained a lot about them, taking time to observe and explain their behaviour. He also decscribed Kenyan culture and this was really interesting. He made from our safari the greatest experience. Thanks to him !
The hotels were as expected apart from one which was not very nice, noisy and the "room" was tiny.

Amazing experience with Jeff.
Everything was perfect, the whole team is really nice and professional. Everything was clear from the beginning to the end. Jeff, our guide, has a great knowledge of the animals and knows Masai Mara by heart. He is also an excellent driver. We even got to see a Leopard (among elephants, giraffes, lions, cheetah....) and all close up. Just to quickly sum up: fantastic, attentive and friendly. Every second was fabulous.

Well organized, friendly guide, amazing experience, nice camp.
We had a blast on this amazing Safari. Everything was well organized, we saw a lot of animals and our guide Jacques was so good and friendly. We did a three-day tour and it was really amazing. We stayed at the Enkorok camp which was also so lovely. A trip to remember forever.

Exelent. The best one. Recomend to everybody
I'm not the first time with Jocky tours. I wss in Kenia last winter, and will make safary with them i n the next February. Helen always answers very fast and correct. Johny is the best guide, he is doing his best to.make you happy. Also they organize the baloon trip, the feelings during the flight were idiscribable, and finely- breakfast with the animals in the middle of Masai Mara. The hotels are perfect. Sarova Mara is one of the best lodges in Kenia. European and local food. Not far from the entrance. Sopa Naivashi is also good. Recomend you to test local red wines and mild kenian coffe.

Efficient and friendly
Before I booked my Masai Mara tour, I was in contact with four different tour operators in Kenya. Out of them, Jocky Tours were the fastest in their replies. This remained consistent throughout the communication period. Since it was my first time in Kenya, I had a lottt of questions, Jocky Tours were always patient and fast with their replies. That was the biggest green flag for me to book with them!
While on tour, I HAD A FANTASTIC TIME! We were incredibly lucky to see all the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) aside from other wonderful sightings in ONE trip. Except for the rhino (for safety reasons), we were able to see the animals quite up close, which was super cool. This was largely due to our guide, John! He was determined that we saw what we came to see. He didn't follow other vehicles or crowds, and drove around to find the animals himself, gave us ample time to observe and take photos/videos of the animals, and asked us if we were happy before proceeding ahead. He had a friendly demeanor and would answer questions patiently. He loves what he does and that made our trip AMAZINGGGGG... Lake Nakuru was very peaceful. I was promised flamingos in the itinerary and I got flamingos! Along with pelicans and other wildlife in the park. The vehicle was also comfortable. So, an additional 5 stars for John! :)
Accomodation-wise, Lenchada Camp is pretty basic but you get an attached toilet and shower, which is spacious with running hot water. This was a pleasant surprise. You will wake up to various bird calls in the morning, which really pulls you into a Zen mode and it's a pretty place to be in. Buraha Zenoni at Nakuru was great!
This trip was my first solo trip and I am glad I chose to do it with Jocky Tours. It has given me a lifetime of memories and I hope to come back. Kenya will always have a special place in my heart.

Great value for money
The whole booking process was very efficient. I sent them over a dozen questions and they always replied super fast.
I did a 4 day Masai Mara safari.
The first two days I had Francis as a driver. I couldn’t be more greatful to him. He made the safari truly extraordinary. Francis was constantly on his radio chasing animals, and thanks to his efforts we could see almost all the main species of the Mara. He was also very friendly and had an excellent attitude at all times.
I would recommend everyone to make a safari with Francis, since your driver will be the most determinar factor on the quality of your experience.
The last day of our safari we had a different driver. Unlike Francis, this other driver did not use did not use his radio. As a result, at times we drive for long periods without spotting anything. The safari with this other guide was kind of an aimless drive inside the reserve.

Seven Day Safari
We did the seven day safari between Masai Mara/Nakaru/Naivasha/Amboseli and had an amazing time.
There was a slight delay in the airport transfer although this was very early in the morning and not too long. There was also a 5% fee for paying by card when we arrived which wasn't communicated beforehand (even though we had used the same payment method for the deposit with no fee!)
Once the safari was underway everything was great, particularly our driver Alex who was friendly and knowledgeable in spotting and telling us about the animals and also helpful in stopping at cash points/safaricom shop and anything else we needed when travelling.

Best experience and yet budget friendly
We had the best experience with Jocky tours and travels. It was a 1 time payment and we did not have to worry about anything throughout the trip. Our tour operator Dennis had taken care of everything for us. He had very patiently waited for us to spot all the animals, even the rarest. We would see a zebra or giraffe every 5 min and would ask him to stop. He does that every single time without any hesitation. He doesn't talk a lot. He lets us have our fun but is always with us when we need him. I would definitely suggest you to go with Jocky tours for your Kenyan safari experience. They're very good.
