Excellent service from the initial enquiry and throughout the safari.

I had originally asked for the Mara Serena lodge but it was unavailable for the dates required. Equivalent accommodation was very quickly proposed and arranged. The driver Moses was very knowledgable and was also able to network with other drivers during the safari to find the best viewing opportunities. We were able to view different prides of lion including one pride feasting on a kill and fending off jackels. We also saw the 5 brothers cheetah family and had an excellent leopard sighting. Moses covered vast areas of the Mara to maximise our viewing opportunities . Some other companies' drivers went off the tracks to gain viewing but Moses respected the rules of the park and our viewings were excellent due to his positioning of the vehicle and knowledge of how the animals moved. This was particularly noticeable when we stopped a short distance from a herd of elephants but another vehicle went too close and was warned off by the matriarch. The accommodations were both very nice, particularly the Ashnil camp on the Mara river with its resident banded mongoose and bushbuck. from the lodge we could view hippos, crocs and waterbuck at various times in the river and on the opposite banking. I would travel with Arkman in the future.

Thank you

Arkman Safaris made our first safari experience unforgettable. We had good communication (tour operator is Jacinta) and everything seemed to go as planned. Our driver and guide was Nick. Nick is passionate, professional, knowledgeable, and humorous. Thank you.

Wonderful experience. I will definitely use Arman Safari's in my next adventure.

I was impressed by their prompt communication. They went the extra mile of giving me quotations of different hotels in South coast so that I can compare the cost. They were also prompt in replying to their emails. I was dealing with Jacinta, who is very pleasant and did a fantastic job. I would recommend Arkman Safari's for people out there looking for efficient tour companies and a fantastic Holiday experience.

Good Host, Phenomenal Tour

Our tour operator was very good with communication. The rooms were clean and service was up to standards. Our driver John was also very professional, punctual with time and has a great knowledge base for the different animals in the Mara. Overall, great journey for a good price!

Payment was very unconvinient

Guide and operator who take us to the safari actually was very friendly and excellent.
But conductor who manage our trip from Arkman Africa was problematic person.
I wished to pay VISA card, but he did not understand what I wanted to do and we waste time a half day. In addition, the day of the trip, he did not come despite he said he also will come to make sure the attendants. And he did not communicate the guide who will attend actually in the trip. We loss one our or more to make sure who will attend.

Dear Yuko,

Apologies for the inconvenience caused during your trip.

After this incident, we have created our own Paypal account to receive future payments via VISA card. We have also provided training to our operators to ensure such miscommunication will not occur in the future.

Thank you for your patience, and we wish for you to visit East Africa again in the future.

Great experience that enhanced my appreciation of Kenyan Beauty.

Overall, the service was very good. I was very satisfied with the hotel they booked for us, the food was very good and the rooms were nice and clean. The tour guide and the driver that they assigned to us were also very respectful and helped introduce to Kenya and its culture. Very good experience!

Airtickets for International Travel

I wanted to buy airtickets for international travels. I had a lot of difficulties to manage several issues well for the urgent need. I came to Arkman who sells high quality tea. I was told that Arkman is also a travel agency. It is the first time that I asked Arkman to help my travel. To my surprise, Arkman handled it very professionally with good price, quick response and customer-consideration.
