Wow 2nd time in 18 months— different place and guide but same amazing experience with SOK

Our 2nd time in last 18 months with SOK, this time to Tasvo East and West and Taita Hills and Amboseli. This trip stayed off bumpy with KLM losing our luggage that we got two days later but SOK and Vanessa and our driver Miqual worked to get our luggage picked up from the airport and delivered to us 5 hours away!!!

Salt lick lodge is Amazing!!!! Best lodge ever. Lots of animals here to see. Miqual our driver very professional, knowledgeable, and well spoke in English. He was a great guide for the week we were there. Tsavo sweet was our least favorite hits due to lack of number of animals.

SOK customizes the trip around you so if flights change or whatever they just adjust your trip as needed. Communication is great and leeched very competitive. We have used them twice so far and although different trips altogether they still provide w amazing experience.

Wonderful itinerary, smooth and easy planning, and a memorable safari experience!

We had an amazing trip with Spirit of Kenya! We are so thankful for Andre for all of his support throughout the planning and booking process -- he made all the preparation for our trip as easy as possible and set us up with a perfect itinerary. We absolutely LOVED all the places we stayed -- each of the lodgings was very unique, intriguing, and fun, and all of the logistics were smooth and seamless.

Our trip -- 6 days, 5 nights for 4 adults, 3 of whom had never been on a safari before -- started in Nairobi (where Spirit of Kenya handled all the planning of picking us up from the airport and our overnight stay in the city before our safari began), took us to Masai Mara in Kenya, Serengeti, and then Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. We saw so, so, SO many animals. We saw all of the big 5, including a mama and baby rhino. And hundreds, if not thousands, of others -- some highlights were: hordes of zebras/wildebeest in Serengeti, many lions in all three of the parks, both cheetahs and leopards, and tons of elephants and giraffes.

Both of our guides (Peter and Azorea) were great, and for different reasons. Our guide in Kenya was an expert driver, and was great at tracking the potential locations of the animals to get us very close to the action. He was truly a professional. Our guide in Tanzania was warm, friendly, and outgoing, and he taught us so much about everything we saw. He was very proactive in making sure we were having an amazing time, and was incredibly flexible to our needs. We really appreciated and enjoyed our time with both of them, and can't thank them enough for a memorable experience.

Overall, everything went perfectly and truly exceeded our expectations. It was wonderful to feel like we were in good hands the whole time and kept safe and happy, without having to worry about any logistics. We definitely recommend Spirit of Kenya to anyone looking to plan a safari trip in Kenya or Tanzania!

Exceptional family trip

We had the time of our lives! Andre was instrumental in putting together an amazing itinerary for us. Charles, our guide was the best part of the trip. Without him, the whole experience would have been different. He was so knowledgeable, so kind and just amazing really. We visited Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara and had only 7 days. Although it was such a tight schedule, thanks to the diligent planning by Spirit of Kenya we got to see all animals (including the surprise ones:)) and nature. We also were able to make adjustments to the schedule based on our energy so flexibility was much appreciated travelling with our twins. All 3 places were very different and I am glad we got to see all of them. All we needed was more time. Thanks a lot for this memorable time.
We recommend them without a blink.

Fantastic trip

We had a terrific time, thanks to Vanessa and Spirit of Kenya. Our trip took us to Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania. Saw lions, cheetahs, elephants and lots of zebras. Our two guides were uncanny in their ability to spot animals. We also stayed in a great lodge on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Vanessa was always responsive to our questions and concerns.

Amazing Kenyan safari experience!

We had an amazing trip with Spirit of Kenya! Vanessa in the booking office helped us plan the perfect itinerary, so we were able to visit three parks in just five days. Our guide, Michael, went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience and saw a ton of wildlife. I would absolutely recommend booking with them!

Amazing journey from professionals!

Organization of the trip was at the highest level.
Due to the situation in the world, we were forced to change our plans several times - and each time they quickly and clearly coordinated the changes, were always in touch.
Special thanks to Thiago for our trip!
Highly recommend!

Spirit of Kenya is EVERYTHING

Our safari tour with Spirit of Kenya was an outstanding experience! Our guides/drivers Simon and Georgie were experienced and very knowledgeable! They took excellent care of us and we felt safe the whole time! Planning our trip, I worked with the experience coordinator Tiago. He answered all questions and request immediately! He customized our tour, and made our trip uniquely our own! I loved the tented camps we stayed in! Hearing the animal sounds at night was thrilling!! The price was a great value for what we received! I highly recommend this tour company! Spirit of Kenya is a great company, offering a great product!!

Amazing! Good value, flexible, friendly.

We had an amazing safari through Spirit of Kenya. Vanessa spent many hours organising our tailored itinerary and was always responsive and helpful. George our driver was great: friendly and knowledgeable. The lodges were all amazing and we were lucky enough to see amazing wildlife: a mother cheetah hunt and kill to feed her 4 cubs, 2 male cheats out for a walk, a cheetah sat under a tree where we were the only people there, lion and elephant close enough to touch, a lion hunt, rhino and even a Leopard. Spirit of Kenya were by far the cheapest quote we got, they were also the most flexible, catering to all our needs. Only minor misshap was that our flights were moved by British Airways and this message didn't seem to reach the local team so we didn't have anyone to meet and greet.

Our experience in Kenya was so wonderful in every way: the drivers were very respectful and professional, the camps were clean and great, and the areas were beyond imaginations. I will be repeating my trip again in 2023 in the migration season, with the trip being in Tanzania and the Masai Mara, so expect a mail in the coming days to inquire about this trip.
