The most unforgettable safari with Sino Africa Safari
We spent a amazing week with a perfect organization of Sino Africa Safari, from the pick up at the Nairobi airport, the chosen hotels, the unique and natural parks and the wise advicefrom Kennedy (driver guide).
It was also very important for us to have quickly answers by Jong to all our questions, in order to know which would be the details of our trip.
We would like to visit you again after the pandemic ends.

No Need to Look Further!
From the moment I contacted Spirit of Kenya in March 2020 to start planning, they have supported us with professionalism and hospitality considering all the delays and changes that have happened over these past crazy 2 years! I can't say enough about their efficiency, patience and kindness in the planning of this trip given all the obstacles we kept facing. As a DIY planner, I literally choose this company after reading all the rave reviews on the internet. But what really sold me was the personal attention I received from Vanessa, (immediate response to emails, questions answered professionally, the outlining of the different packages). During my initial research process, I found so many really expensive tours, and so many really cheap tours. The mid-level ones were very elusive. SOK offered various levels of safari from economy through luxury, and we were able to build our own experience based on our budget. For $10,000, (plus airfare & tips), the 4 of us enjoyed an extremely luxurious 7-day safari, where we all felt our expectations were exceeded. SOK makes sure that the camps/lodges they include on their listings are all beautifully kept properties, with exceptional service. But, if truth be told, the thing that put this whole trip over the top for us was our safari guide/driver, Simon. There is no money in the world that buys personality and professionalism like we we encountered with Simon. He also made wonderful recommendations for a couple of side trips to our safari drives, plus he had to deal with all of our Covid testing procedures along the way, and he couldn't have been more helpful and cordial. As tourism slowly starts to open again, here is wishing all of you at SOK the best of luck, because those flood gates will open again!

Our trip was amazing! From start to finish.
Giraffe manor was a dream, we were looked after William and he went out of his way to make sure we have the best experience. But in the morning can be very hectic. We got lucky and had great breakfast with giraffes but They should try and organize it better and have everyone sit down for breakfast. It was bit messy everyone running around. For that kind of money everyone should have great experience.The safari was fantastic! Franco was our tour guy and he was amazing! The only thing we didnt enjoy was food. Food was Tasteless and very little food. The camp should try to offer African cousin rather than chicken and rice. Some African food experience would be nice rather then try to make it international.

Best tour operator in Africa
Andre was my Personal Journey Designer. I only had one day in Nairobi and my trip was planned only two days before, yet Andre was able to help me design an unforgettable safari, dinner and souvenir trip. He even allowed me to combine a work trip to the hospital to visit a patient on the itinerary and was very generous in his costing and pricing. Our driver and guide was Franco who was always smiling and also helped guide us through our itinerary on the day itself. He helped us decide how much time to spend in each location to make the most out of our day.
Out of all the tour operators I contacted, only Spirit of Kenya has listed on its email it’s numerous awards and travelers choice commendations. They also reply very fast and efficiently. I would not go with other company when in Africa :)
Thank you Andre and Franco for an unforgettable experience :)

Best trip of my life!
The process was smoothly run from the beginning and Vanessa dealt with all my queries promptly. She prepared an amazing package for me, consisting of one night in Lake Nakuru, 3 nights in Masaai Mara and a few nights in Diani Beach. She arranged all transfers and hotel bookings, and the drivers were always on time.
My guide John was phenomenal - we managed to see the big 5 on the first day, and John made a strong effort to meet any request I had. For example, I told him I was keen to see Rhino’s in Nakuru and he made sure I was able to see them twice. John is very knowledgeable, ensuring my day was packed with engaging insights regarding the behaviour of the animals I was seeing throughout the day.
Thank you to Spirit of Kenya for the trip of a lifetime!

Best experience in my life!
Excellent tour company!!! Vanessa who did all the tour’s organization was impeccable; We were looking on this trip for approximately 1 year and I had to postpone it due to the pandemic, I sent around 200 emails to Vanessa and she always answered all my doubts, with great education and resolution. My expectations were very high, as the recommendations were excellent, and even so, they managed to surpass them.
The guides are very kind, respectful and do everything to find the animals we want to see, even if we have to walk thousands of kilometers. They are also extremely punctual and well educated.
The hotel directions were magnificent, with unique service.
At first it seems expensive to pay per day and per person for the safari, since my currency is devalued, but when we got there, we saw that it is very fair for everything that it includes and for the work of everyone involved in the organization.
I recommend the company with my eyes closed, and for sure our experience in Kenya and Tanzania was the best, because we went with Spirit of Kenya.

Perfect 1st Safari Experience
We had a fantastic 1st Safari experience with Spirit of Kenya.
We started the process before Covid and of course experienced a lot of changes before having finally the chance to travel. Andre, our travel manager, supported us very nicely during the full period, with a true customer oriented mindset and a great flexibility.
Once arrived in Kenya, we really enjoyed our time with our guide, Chuma. Really knowledgeable, dedicated and friendly. Could ask for better 1st experience !

Spirit of Kenya - above and beyond!
We had an amazing time thanks to Spirit of Kenya! With Vanessa’s help, we designed an itinerary which worked well for us and the booking process was really smooth. During the safari our guide, Sego, was great fun and importantly he was very knowledgeable. He was determined that we saw the Big 5 and lots of other amazing scenes, and this didn’t disappoint! Spirit of Kenya were very professional and always went above and beyond - I’d definitely recommend them to anyone!
