Charles is the best
5/5

I went on safari September of 2022 to experience the great migration. Charles was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable , welcoming and friendly. He took his time explaining different animals and parts of the park.

He was very respectful and courteous. The park was beautiful we saw the big five. I had an awesome time qnd I hope I can experience it again someday.

Reliable and affordable operator of exciting tours
5/5

Value for money: very high (taking into account the high entry fees and the cost of door-to-door transportation, game drives, accomodation, all meals and the staff the margin of the operator must have been relatively moderate.
Reliability: high (mostly on time, usually with no incomprehensible waiting times, although there were exceptions

Wonderful safari with Jeff!
5/5

We booked our 6 day safari tour with Jocky which turned out to be a fantastic experience for us!

First, the combination of Amboseli, Nakuru and Masai Mara is just unforgettable-- the magnificent Kilimanjaro and versatile ecosystem in Amboseli, Nakuru's beautiful lake, birds and finally the grandiose Masai Mara-- every park is so unique yet so beautiful. We highly recommend to book a longer Safari to get the most out of the trip!

Our guide Jeff is very knowledgeable and friendly. He respects our privacy and yet is very attentive to our needs and open to all questions that we have. We had captured some magical moments of wildlife during our early morning and late afternoon game drives thanks to him. One of us is a hobby photographer and Jeff was very patient to all our needs and requests for the best pictures. He was also able to guide us find cheetahs, lions and many others. One important thing on top: he drives also very carefully even in extremely bad weathers.

I will definitely book safari with Jocky tours and with Jeff again!

Amazing trip with Charles!
5/5

From the moment our tour started we got to see wildlife, even on the first drive. Charles our guide was amazing. He really cared about us to make sure we had a good time and we saw all the animals we wanted in Masai Mara. He ensured we were having fun and comfortable. The best part about our trip was making friends especially with our guide Charles! Highly recommend this safari tour with Jocky and ask for Charles

Very friendly and kind
4/5

We did a 2 day safari in Masai Mara which was very fulfilling. The driver, Andreu, was very professional, kind and friendly. Moreover we met new people and made new friends. There was a tiny problem when they picked us up that caused a delay but the Jocky Agency solved and rewarded us. Very good experience! Great guide, and very good resort and food.

Beyond expectations for a budget priced tour!
5/5

Chose an 8 day (Maasai Mara, Naivasha, Nakuru, Amboselli) budget tour in a 4x4 jeep. First time on safari so wasn't sure what to expect.

Jocky, specifically our guides, Moses and Francis, exceeded all my expectations. Pre-tour communications were informative and responsive. The deposit was easy to do. Pick up from our hotel was on time, and they had us on our way after a quick stop at their office for balance of payment.

The first lodging, a tented camp, was basic but clean and comfortable. The following accommodations got better with each stop and ended in a very nice resort that was well above what I expected. No shortage of food at any time; sufficient variety and all tasty (except the boxed lunches which could use some variety). The itinerary provided enough variety (i.e. different ecosystems) to avoid being repetitive or boring, as well as providing sufficient rest time (i.e. not all 6:30 am starts). It was also completed smoothly, on time, and to plan aside from incidents outside of their control (i.e. traffic congestion, power outages, flooding in park, etc).

The best thing was our guides who were professional but fun and friendly. They clearly communicated each day's plan, knowledgeably and happily answered questions about animals, cultures, history, etc., got us into prime viewing/picture taking positions, smoothly managed transfers of persons joining or leaving the tour, worked hard to overcome unexpected issues (i.e. traffic), and accommodated additional requests where possible (i.e. purchasing SIM card, ATM stops, arranging for PCR test, etc).

In general, a very positive experience, money well spent, and zero hesitation on recommending Jocky Tours!

Value for money
5/5

Had a lovely 4 day private tour with Yasin to Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha & Lake Nakuru. As a birdwatcher I was pleased that Yasin knew the birds well and we found many species to add to my list. Jocky Tours was considerably cheaper than competitors without compromise on quality.

Impeccable service!
5/5

We spent 7 days in 4 different parks in Kenya. The tour was customized by Jocky Tours according to our needs directly from Italy.
The vehicle was fabulous and our driver Jack (aka JJ) super professional, nice and accommodating to some of our requests.
Highly recommended for those who want to live a 360 degree wild experience!
