More than just a safari
We went on a very well organised private safari in Taita Hills and Tsavo East. Working around lodge availability, we travelled from Malindi to Taita Hills, then to Tsavo East, and finally ending in Diani Beach. Dicky, the guide, and Ismael, the driver, were both friendly and knowledgeable -- we didn't just see zebras, elephants, giraffes, lions, and other animals, but also learned a lot about Kenya. Communication throughout was great and we didn't have to worry about planning anything during the tour. At the end of the safari, on request, Dicky organised a day tour to Wasini Island, a magnificent follow-up adventure.
One important note for tourists: card payments are accepted in few places, it's important to plan in advance and have cash up-front.

Better to do a private safari
we went on a private safari, which was a good decision. This means you have more space in the car, you can take a better look at the animals and take nice photos. a group safari has 6-8 people in one car. This means you only have a small amount of space and have to hope for good photos and views. our driver Ismail was very friendly and did a very good job. he gave us enough time to observe the animals and always drove very close to the situation. The only negative thing about the company - we didn't have a jeep but a van. On the way back we had to pick up the boss at the train station. As a result, we lost over an hour of our day. this was not discussed with us. Please note: every safari (every company) goes to a house as a “break”. on the way to the parc and on the return. You can buy souvenirs there, etc. Be careful: this is not real handmade . It's a product from China and too expensive. They are trying to trick the tourists. the people there are pushy and promise that are products from Kenya :) :) :)
It's a nice experience. You should go on a safari in your life. Remember: it's a game of chance which animals you see

Amazing Safari experience with Dicky and the group!
My husband and me had the privilege of embarking on a safari with KT Safaris, and I must say it was an unforgettable experience. Everything was exceptionally well-organized, and we were thoroughly satisfied.
Right from the outset, our safari was marked by impeccable planning.
During the safari, we had the opportunity to explore some of nature's most spectacular areas. Our local guides were knowledgeable and passionate, providing us with fascinating insights into the local flora and fauna. We were fortunate enough to spot a wide range of animals, including elephants, lions, giraffes, and many more. It was a true spectacle of nature that we will never forget.
Furthermore, the accommodation during the safari was outstanding. The lodges where we stayed were comfortable and well-equipped.
In conclusion, we can only highly recommend this experience. A well-organized safari is a unique opportunity to connect with nature, discover new cultures, and make unforgettable memories. If you're seeking a memorable adventure, look no further and book a safari with KT-Safaris! ASANTE SANA guys!

An okayish company with overpriced services
I had two tours with this company: Wasini Dolphin Tour & Shimba Hills. Below you will find my experiences with this provider.
1. The Wasini Dolphin Tour was so-so because we saw the dolphins only partly due to the overcrowdedness of the area where dolphins swim. There were too many other boats around, some people were even swimming though, technically, you can’t swim with the dolphins in the park (at least that’s what a guy from the ticket office told us), so yes, there are some dolphins in the area, but it’s simply overcrowded (at that was in their winter, or off-the-season!). On top of that, we followed the program only partly. In the beginning, our guide told us that we would be visiting a local village after lunch, but when the time came to do the walk, we were informed that the walk is canceled, giving us no adequate reason why.
2. The Shimba Tour was run by a very professional and knowledgeable driver that I really respect a lot! He did an awesome job, but the Shimba National Park is just too boring, and animals are too difficult to spot because of the lush vegetation. We spent half a day driving around and saw only a few antelopes, a small herd of buffalos, and a warthog family. No other animals were present, so you literally pay money just for driving around bushes in a hilly area.
All in all, the company is pretty reliable, they do what they promise to do, and I understand that it’s nature, so we can’t always predict or control everything. I just think the prices I paid for these trips were too high, considering how many animals you actually see during the trips.

Good value and good to support a local company
We enjoyed our short safari trip (2 nights, from Nairobi) with KT and Safaris. Our game drives in Lake Nakuru National Park were excellent (with lots of lions!), the hike up Mount Longonot was amazing and the morning boat ride on Lake Naivasha was super interesting. The two lodges chosen were very comfortable and had good food. Dicky was always on time for pick ups and activities.
We were pleased to support a small local company and encourage others to do the same. It is good value and nice to know more/all of what you pay stays in Kenya.
However, it is worth noting that as a small company, the service from KT is not as slick or comprehensive as what you might get from the bigger or international firms. The vehicle for our tour was quite old and wouldn't have been suitable for children. Make sure you check exactly what's included when you book, make any expectations very clear and get agreements in writing.

Great experience Safari
I went on a 2 day tour to Amboseli National Park with my friend. It was my second Safari tour with Dicky. The 3 day safari tour to Tsavo East and Taita Hills was successful, so I decided to book a tour with KT & Safaris again. This time, Sulayman joined the tour since it would be a long drive to Amboseli. We were able to see a huge group of elephants, giraffes, flamingos, and most importantly, a pac of hyenas. Sulayman spotted many animals while driving, and Dicky always comforted us with his friendly character. The view of the Kilimanjaro was astonishing, let alone with the animals upclose. If you have enough cash and time, Safari with them shall not let you down. You should book your tour during the dry season to enhance the chance of seeing the animals, and book a multi-day tour so you can enjoy the view of sunrise and the morning game drive.
