An amazing African experience!!! ;)

They organized a great safari for us!! With pick up at the airport, 2 days in Amboseli NP, 1 day in Lake Naivasha, 1 day in Lake Nakuru, 2 days in Masai Mara and they left us in Isibania, the border with Tanzania to continue our safari . Spirit of kenya always answered us very quickly and adjusted to all our needs, our plans and exceeded our expectations. Our guide Mike M, is a great human being, with too much knowledge, respect and love for animals. Full days of sharing his experiences and he managed to get us to see the big 5 in just 3 days. Using all his knowledge he knew where to look, where to wait to be able to have the best moment close to the animals. At a time where we were seeing a lion, another car arrived with other people and Mike with his big heart told us, sharing is caring and he moved his car, so that other people could have and live the same experience as us, which we found impressive and super kind and knew that he is a super guide , who we recommend 100%.

Thank you Mike M, for making us live such a majestic experience. Thank you Spirit of Kenya ;)

Beyond Expectations

We had an incredible 5 day Safari, with our kids (11 and13). Thomas was our driver and we couldn't have asked for more. He was a wealth of information, and had an amazing ability to spot animals even while navigating some very challenging terrain. Thomas knew the parks inside and out, be it animals, birds, plants and culture, he knew it all. Our expectations were exceeded. Spirit of Kenya was excellent in helping us plan it out, and I would recommend Thomas to anybody who is looking for an amazing experience!

Fantastic Experience!

My husband and I chose Spirit of Kenya for our first safari as my Goddaughter had used them for her honeymoon trip and was very happy with them. We are quite thankful for her recommendation as we had a great trip!

Our driver/guide, Michael, was excellent. He picked us up from our hotel in Nairobi and was with us for the week as we visited Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, and Maasai Mara. He is an excellent guide and did his best to find the Big 5! We really enjoyed our conversations with him and learned so much about Kenya, the different parks, the animals and anything else we wanted to know.

Spirit of Kenya offered us lodging options at each of our locations and we were pleased with our choices. You can go from "budget/standard" to "luxury/premium" at each place; we chose the premium options which were all fantastic.

Vanessa was extremely helpful in the planning of our trip. We actually booked the trip just a month before leaving and it all went very smoothly thanks to her prompt replies to my many questions. The weather was great other than an hour of rain at the Lake and then on the last day in Maasai Mara, so we were quite happy with going in April.

I highly recommend Spirit of Kenya - you won't be disappointed!

Very responsible and reliable company, communicates quickly

We had a 5-day safari. Everything was arranged perfectly. Especially a big thank you to Philippa, who was responsible and super fast communicating. I recommend this company as no one choice by price-quality ratio

Excellent service

We travelled in two family groups to Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru. The booking process had been handled very professionally, with very quick response times. Our two drivers/guides, Charles and George, could not have done more to make our safari trip as complete and memorable as possible. Using their expertise, we were fortunate to see the "Big 5" twice over, and cant think of a single animal we missed. Their expertise also extended to birdlife - something several of us were particularly interested in - and between us we accumulated a bird list of over 100 species covering a wide range of habitats. The accommodation in tented camps was comfortable and clean (very much needed after long days in the vehicles), and although we were very close up to nature, the security provided at each camp was completely reassuring. All in all we had a fantastic safari experience.

Our Memorable 10-day Safari Adventure

During our 10-day safari adventure through Kenya and Tanzania we visited Lake Nakuru, Maasai Mara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Amboseli… and it was nothing short of extraordinary. From the breathtaking landscapes to the warm hospitality we experienced, every moment was filled with wonder and excitement.

Most of the locations where we stayed exceeded all expectations, especially the Lahia Tented Lodge in the wow, the view was just amazing! Each accommodation offered a unique immersion into the surrounding wilderness, making every night a memorable experience.

What truly set this safari apart, however, was the exceptional service provided by every member of the team. From the moment we began planning our trip with Filipa, our coordinator, who supported us all the way!. Her patience and thoroughness in answering all our endless questions ensured that we felt fully prepared for our journey.

During our safari drives, our guide James, was an absolute delight. His knowledge of the region's wildlife and landscapes was unparalleled, and his sense of humor added an extra layer of enjoyment to each excursion. James' professionalism and dedication made navigating the vast terrain effortless, allowing us to focus solely on soaking in the beauty of our surroundings. In Tanzania, our driver Lawrence was also very kind and professional, his personality was a bit more serious but he was a very knowledgeable guide.

The kindness and friendliness of everyone we encountered along the way truly made this safari an unforgettable experience.

Our 10-day safari in Kenya and Tanzania was a journey filled with awe-inspiring moments and heartfelt connections. Thanks to the impeccable service of Filippa, James and Lawrence, every aspect of our adventure exceeded expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend this safari experience to anyone seeking an unforgettable expedition into the heart of Africa's wilderness

Trip of a lifetime perfectly hosted by Spirit of Kenya

We booked 5 day trip visiting Amboseli NP, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara via Spirit of Kenya. Team was super responsive to every query I had before the trip started.
During the trip, from the moment we exited the airport to the moment we reentered it, everything was planned and hosted perfectly by Spirit of Kenya. Our guide, Joseph was extremely knowledgeable & friendly, while he also knew when to give us our privacy & let us enjoy. He helped me plan the proposal & picked a perfect spot for the same for me, while also capturing the moment.
Spirit of Kenya provided us with great hotel & travel options as per our budget and can't praise enough the hospitality we enjoyed at every place we visited.

Highly recommend Spirit of Kenya for the safari experience and we can't wait to be back soon.

A great introduction to Kenya and its wildlife

We had an 8 day safari tour taking in the Masai Mara, Lake Nokuru, Amboseli and Tsavo West. Our guide Thomas was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, a great driver, very adaptable to our requirements and a pleasure to be with. All the accomodation was great especially in the MM which had open access.

The best experience !!!

When I started planning a safari trip I picked a few companies and Spirit of Kenya stuck out the most. Their website was informative and Vanessa was quick to responding to my email.

From start to finish, Vanesa was absolutely amazing to work with. She provided us so much information, and adjusted our itinerary multiple times.

The safari itself was absolutely amazing. Our drivers were always a few minutes early. They were able to find every animal we wanted to see multiple times a day.
The housing options provided were nothing short of amazing. Vanessa gave us 3 options per area of various price ranges so we can keep within our budget.

Everyone we met was more than welcoming. The meals were 10/10.

I cannot recommend this company enough. If I go back to Africa I will most definetly go thru them again.

Thank you Vanessa.
Thank you Joseph and Habibu our game drivers !!!

Remarkable experience !

My preparation was reading an extensive book about Kenya and there I recorded the 6 locations I wanted to see.
Spirit of Kenya's offering was tailor-made and the stays in the selected lodges were breathtaking.
Especially the Salt Lick Safari Lodge location where the elephants came within striking distance to the pool.
My driver John drove me around for the full 7 days from Tsavo West to Tsavo East, then Amboseli and Lake Nakuru to end in the Maasai Mara. A fantastic beautiful trip with great support from John. A really great experience of the wildlife in Kenya.
I took a total of 2500 photos, which is proof of fun.
