We rate Jocky Tours 4.5 stars; we would have given 5 stars if hotel in Nakuru had been better
The safari was a wonderful experience and James/Munyiri was a perfect guide! He was helpful and professional at all times; he shared his knowledge of the animal and plant life, and answered all our questions patiently and carefully. He was warm and pleasant. When on Thursday we drove along very muddy roads and one van after another was getting stuck, James proved to be the most skilled driver: he helped all the drivers get out of difficult situations and it was clear that the other drivers recognized and appreciated his skill. We felt safe with him at all times.
The only complaint we have about the safari was the hotel we stayed at in Nakuru the last night. Lanet Matfam was a sub-standard hotel: the rooms were very cramped, there was mold in the bathroom, and there was no place to sit. Certainly, for the amount of money we paid Jocky Tours, the accommodations should have been better.
All in all, we had a wonderful -indeed unforgettable — experience on safari, and we were thrilled that James was our guide! We will surely recommend Jocky Tours to others and we will encourage them to request James/Munyiri as their guide.

They were efficient and Iwe had no issues with payment, starting and ending the safari.
I communicated with Minneh of Jocky Tours & Safaris through email and she was very prompt at answering all my questions and concerns. It was very easy to pay the deposit and even the remaining balance before the start of the trip. Evans our driver and guide throughout the entire trip was a fun guy to be around. We learned a lot about the animals and environment that we did not know about. Evans was also very accommodating to our needs and always asked if we were okay. I would highly recommend this tour group for future travellers. When we decided to tour again, we'll definitely be using them again. Cheers to you all for a job well done. Thank you!!

A great combination of price-worthiness and exclusivity
We were looking for a condensed, exclusive two-day tour to Masai Mara and Jocky Tours turned out to be a great choice. Our experienced guide Joshua took good care of us from the moment we met and together we shared an unforgettable journey. Going from Nairobi via the Great Rift Valley, Narok and through Masai regions was a unique experience by itself, and the stories and experiences Joshua shared with us during the days added huge value to our trip. Masai Mara was even more breathtaking than expected and after two intensive days we had encountered all the wildlife you could wish for. We had a great stay in a tented camp close to the park, with friendly staff and members from a nearby Masai tribe welcoming us in a great way.
While the safari tour even exceeded our expectations, the planning proceeded very smoothly as well - from the initial contacts with Minneh to Joshua dropping us off at our hotel. I would definitely recommend Jocky Tours for anyone who is looking for a great combination of price-worthiness and exclusivity.

Excellent safari experience with Evans
The whole experience was amazing. Our driver Evans was brilliant. He could spot animals so easily whilst driving on the tracks on tricky terrain. We saw all of the big 5 in the Masai Mara. Evans was very knowledgable about all of the animals and birds.

It was a wonderful experience. I was travelling alone and taken care off very well. It's worth it!
The communication with the company through Minneh was so easy. She assisted me all through out. I had to change my planned dates at the last moment and Minneh made all the arrangements without a problem. She also made sure I was taken care off well in the entire tour. They picked me up in my hotel on time. Our driver/guide Evans was amazing. He made sure everyone in the group was comfortable and enjoying. It was a good group size (5-7). I was surprised with how nice the accommodations were and the food was also good (most of the time buffet). The game drives were amazing. You will be surprised each time with the sightings of the animals. Evans made sure we saw the best sightings and off course the big five! The other people in my group had only 4days and Minneh arranged me a private tour at hell’s gate with a very good guide named Dan that also works for the company. I was brought back to the door step of my hotel satisfied. I paid the cheapest but excellent and worth every penny safari tour in Kenya! I will definitely recommend this tour company and will use it again when I go back with my family.
Best safari ever, accomodating, well organised and well priced!
Such a good safari, we saw two kills, 4/5 of the big five! John the guide went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. Accomodation basic but all you need, and the staff are lovely and food is great!
Overall excellent experience!

I had an excellent out going tour guide (Kikitu) he made the experience fun and really interesting.
Some of the hotels used could be better upgraded. Asides that, the sights were really good and eye opening , I am glad I went on the tour
