Wonderful experience

Our driver Kalifa drove my wife and me in an amazing tour to discover the life of the wild animals in the park. A very nice guy, excellent driver with an impressive knowledge of the park. Everything worked perfectly. I can strongly recommend this company.

Super accomodating

Richard, our tour guide, was great! Easy going and knowledgeable. He really took his time to show us a wide variety of animals! The national park was great.
Maasai village visit was also totally worth out time.

The tour operator was also very accommodating!
Super happy!

Great driver and agenda but they may overcharge you for small things

- The driver I had was amazing. He knows all the spots and makes the journey smooth
- Their written communication via email is good. They always reply within a few hours
- You can basically join any time, no need to reserve a week in advance

- I’ve found the in-person communication to be not sincere, as I got overcharged in person and it feels like they’d take any opportunity to earn extra money from me
- The agenda includes fixed time at shopping area, and people can easily feel forced to buy things

Knowledgable, responsive and helpful


In a word, our recent 2-week trip to Kenya with Simba Paka Saffaris, was WONDERFUL!
Although this was our third safari trip to Africa and we had a good idea of what we wanted to include for our grandsons, (ages 13 &11), Sarah crafted a schedule that expanded on our ideas. We needed to stay in Kenya to include 4 days in Mombasa on our own to visit schools and students we sponsor. All the coordination of transportation. airport pickups, accommodations, and meals was taken care of by Sarah/Paul. They were even somehow able to get a needed prescription that was lost on our plane. Our lodges were exactly what we wanted, especially Mara Simba Lodge in Maisa Mara.
Our excellent driver/guide Frances conquered all the driving challenges of the city and the national parks and was successful in finding all the Big Five multiple times. The safari van accommodated the 6 of us and was always clean with plenty of water. Highlights on this trip were a lion kill of a baby warthog, the Sheldrick Elephant Refuge, watching a leopard in a tree with its antelope kill, and the hundreds of elephants in Amboseli National Park.

5 Stars, 3-day safari at a great value!

I decided on a 3-day solo, group joining tour and Paul, the owner exceeded my expectations! He answered questions promptly and coordinated airport pick up and drop off and also arranged a private driver to take me to the Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Center after the Safari. His friendly manner, prompt communication, and reasonable cost was what made me choose Simba Paka. We saw so much wildlife on the game drives, you cannot go wrong with them!

Exceeded expectations

I went on a 4 days Masai Mara safari with Simba Paka on a joint tour, and it exceeded my expectations.

Organizing and communicating with Paul was quick, smooth and clear. Separate credits for our guide Solomon who would always chose the best spot for watching animals, or would spot a lion from a mile away, or would stop for an instagrammable sunset picture.

The accommodation for a mid-range also was better than expected, the car in a good shape, neat and tidy. The plan of the day clear and well communicated.

Overall, Paul or Solomon would take care of everything and one can just sit back, relax and enjoy the best of the safari.

Best Services with no flaws

Simbapaka Safari offered me and my family the best safari experience and drive for 11 days in Masai Mara and really helped to find the best accommodation in Nairobi for an extended period of stay with all the supports.

Mr. Paul, the CEO of Simbapaka Safari really does his ground work and follow up beyond clients expectation.

Mr. Rahim, the Safari Pilot/Guide was an experience guide and know the terrain well in venturing the location of the animals and birds.

Simbapaka Safari offers the best unbeatable package in the safari world.

My best wishes for them and their team to venture more in this stream of business. I request all the wildlife, nature and fun lover to give them an opportunity.

Paul and his team are just perfect

In 2019 I was working in Nairobi and my family came to visit in August. Following advice from people I knew in the Spanish Embassy I hired Simba Paka for a 3-day Safari in Masai Mara. It was the experience of our lives. It was so good that we decided to have another safari with them in Amboseli the following week. It was also amazing!!
Very resonable prices, warm and close attention, really professional drivers and local guides... Everything was absolutely perfect.
If you are searching and comparing, you've reached the end of your quest: stay with Paul. I am sure you won't regret it.
