Excellent experience, well designed and executed to plan
thank you very much to Spirit of Kenya for an excellent safari. Communications beforehand were prompt with many emails back and forth between ourselves and Jorge to organise our custom made itinerary. Lots of options provided on cost. Lots of detail provided, eg length of journey times between reserves, key information when you have children in the vehicle! Payment went smoothly . Upon arrival, Moses was there to meet at airport, and infact from there on in, all drivers and safari guide always on time, in fact early and the entire itinerary proceeded exactly as planned. Accommodations recommended were fantastic. Raphael the guide was excellent and seems to have supersonic vision for spotting animals kilometers away. Everyone we met was super friendly and welcoming to us. A great holiday, topped off with 4 days on the coast to relax after the hectic schedule.

Fabulous safari experience
We had an amazing safari arranged by Filipa at Spirit of Kenya. She was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns. Our guide Charles was extremely experienced and knowledgeable. He knew where the animals were going before the animals did. Wherever he took us we were followed by other guides as they knew Charles knew what he was doing. We saw the Big-5 and so much more. Thank you, Spirit of Kenya, Filipa, and Charles for providing unforgettable memories!

Supportive and helpful!
My fiancée and I had booked our honeymoon with Spirit of Kenya, with André supporting us through the entire process.
André made initial suggestions for the safari and then tailored our trip to exactly what we wanted, within our budget, offering a range accommodation levels and locations. We even added a stay in Zanzibar onto the end of the trip.
Unfortunately for unforeseeable health reasons, my partner and I were advised not to travel just 15 days prior to departure. Spirit of Kenya offered us a 50% refund on the total cost straight away (as per the contract) and were extremely helpful and supportive. (We were even offered to put the trip back by 1 year, but were unable to commit to that at this stage).
Spirit of Kenya, and André in particular, have been so helpful and supportive throughout the entire booking (and cancelling) process. Despite not going on the trip, I really cannot recommend them enough and we definitely plan on re-booking at some point in near future.
5/5 for helpfulness, support and value. Fully recommended.

A perfect journey
Spirit of Kenya truly delivered! From planning to execution I was very happy about how all it went.
I started planning a trip of 9 days to Kenya for my family of five with Andre’ in February. All went smoothly. I was impressed by his responsiveness and his capacity to understand what I wanted. Moreover, once the plan was set, I was happy about the different options of accommodation he provided.
The drivers and guides (Moses and Samuel “SK”we had respectively for a day in Nairobi and then for the trip to Lake Naivasha, lake Nakuru and Masai Mara were excellent and very nice and competent persons. We appreciated the human touch that they provided. We concluded the trip with a two relaxing days in Diani.
All in all one of my best experience. Highly recommended!

A fantastic adventure
We (two guys) booked a five-day safari with some customization to accommodate our other travel plans. The communication with our agent Vanessa was excellent and completely hassle-free - highly appreciated. We were picked up in Nairobi by our excellent guide John and went to Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli. John was very knowledgeable about the animals and we saw everything we could have hoped for and more. Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru were particularly impressive (I think it is wise to spend more time in Maasai Mara out of these two). John was also very friendly and attentive to our wishes, and he matched our "energy" well - we are on the more quiet side and I imagine that different groups can vary a lot in this respect.
We also did a couple of non-game-drive activities, such as visiting a Maasai village: I personally found these less interesting than the game drives and I would likely have opted out of them if given the choice again in favor of more game drive time or rest. Prospective bookers should also note that the transport time between parks (regular roads) can be quite long and should either be prepared for this or err on the side of visiting fewer parks. We booked "mid-range" accommodations and they met all our expectations (in fact they were in part more high-end than expected); however, I consider this to be less important since one would not be spending that much time there but rather be out looking at wild animals.
In summary, we had an excellent trip and Spirit of Kenya lived up to its reputation for providing quality experiences and taking care of all practical issues so one can enjoy the safari without any hassle. I can definitely recommend them for your safari experience!

Excellent safari in kenya
Our safari road trip was really excellent. Our guide Clement helped us enjoying the trip and had a very good knowledge about the country and the national reserves.
We highly recommend Spirit of Kenya and especially Clement as a guide if you want to enjoy your safari.

My trip was amazing. It was my first time visiting Kenya and as a solo traveler i was a bit nervous about the trip. But Spirits of Kenya made my trip an easy one. Starting from the airport pick up until the drop off it was smooth and everything was tailored to my liking and needs. The team was amazing during my visit specifically Filipa and my tour guide, they were both helpful, friendly and great people.

Fantastic first safari experience
A fantastic safari experience as planned with Victor, spending 7 days across Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Maasai Mara.
The trip was excellent due to its scenic variety but most of all, the outstanding knowledge, dependability and driving skills of our brilliant guide Sammy who showed us so many wild animals and in close proximity too. We could not praise him enough. The perfect safari companion for us.
We came away having seen so much of Kenya and its wildlife. Would definitely recommend this trip.

Incredible birthday trip
After a previous incredible birthday safari trip to Tanzania, we had high standards and Spirit of Kenya did not disappoint. From planning to execution, it was clear everyone we spoke to was committed to ensuring we had a great time. We spent months planning with Vanessa who responded to all emails promptly and then met Moses when we landed late (and missing a bag) in Kenya. Moses not only did his best to cheer me up about my missing luggage, but also went back to the airport the next day to pick it up, and met us the day after so I didn't have to keep wearing the same 2 outfits the whole week. He was my hero! Our safari guide Mike was also amazing. He was clearly knowledgable about the parks and the animals, but was also very attentive to all of our needs, both while we were out on safari and in the camps. We definitely enjoyed his company and his humor and would 100% go on a tour with him again. Overall, we can't say enough good things about our experience. The staff was great, the logistics were perfect and the recommended accommodations were beautiful. If you've been thinking about booking a safari trip, do it and use Spirit of Kenya!
