Nice tours in Nairobi and Amboseli
4/5

The tours were nice but our guide in Nairobi tour went to wrong address and when he called to us we have not idea where was our accommodation.
The logistics for Amboseli tour was better, the guide was nice and quiet, he shared his passions about the amazing birds in the park.

Eexcellent trip with friendly guide, highly recommended.
5/5

Overall excellent experience during the entire 5 days. We visited several tribes during our visit and saw many different types of wildlife, including lions, zebras, herds of elephants and giraffes as well as many other animals. Accommodations varied from an adequate tent with working plumbing, to a tent in bad condition with a broken toilet seat, then back to a nice hotel. Our driver (Jimmy) was excellent and friendly, as well as helpful the entire 5 days. The vehicle we drove in had excellent viewing windows and a roof which opened, allowing for many photo opportunites of animals close up.

A highly recommended experience for Travellers not afraid to rough it in tents or spend 5 hours a day driving, who are up for seeing the Safari closeup and having a unique experience.

Efficient
5/5

Everything about our tour was handled beautifully. We were well cared for and had a marvelous time. Our driver/guide was very knowledgable and friendly and accommodated our desire to start about before sunrise. He went the extra mile for us to see 5 lions. We enjoyed our trip to Amboseli very much.

Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara
4/5

I'm a solo traveler and joined 4-Day Safari to Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara with another group. That's very nice experience to saw many kinds of animal in both the National parks with animal life information from George and Alan (guides). It would be better if travel with the Land Rovers :)

I missed only leopard in BIG 5 animal family so I need to go back again :)

I stayed in Nakuru City Max Hotel for 1 night and the budget camp in Enchoro wildlife camp in Masai Mara area for 2 nights. I didn't have the early morning game drive before leaving as showed in the proposal because the group need to go to another national park and I didn't go with them as I come back to Nairobi.

Last, I found something would like to open my camp door in early morning around 4 AM on the last day so until now I still don't know what is it.

Great experience and perfect organisation of our trip to Kenya
5/5

We took private safari trip with Skywide Tours and Travel and we knew we were in good hands as soon as we started the correspondance with Skywide by email. They responded quickly to our request and were able to adapt the safari to our personal wishes. The lodges proposed by the agency were lovely and vey high standards, since we like smaller and more eco accomodations instead of big hotels they also adapted the safari to our needs and made sure the places we stay are still high standards.

Our tour guide and driver was very knowledgable and nice, flexible to adapt the hours for safaris and other trips to our wishes, found places to try local food and even teached us some Kenyan songs. It was all in all a great experience and I can highly recomend this agency.

The only thing we regret is doing most of our trip in Kenya by car and we might prefer flying some long distances instead, since the roads are sometimes not the best and very busy. That was of course our choice and we cannot blame the agency. If you would like to reserve some internal flights, I would also recomend to do it through Skywide, since they can advise you which airport is the closest and which flight to take (this includes small airports and flights that are otherwise hard to find online). The plane they reserved for us from Diani to Nairobi was very nice and modern as well. They also picked us up at our arrival to Nairobi and drove us to our Nairobi hotel, even through our safari with them only started two days later.

Davis was great, he responded to our questions quickly, he put together a Safari that worked for us
5/5

Everything was great.
My three teenage children, my brother and I really enjoyed our Safari that David customized for us.
We really liked our guide/driver (Samuel), he was awesome and very patient with us specially when we were spending too much time to take a lot of pictures!
We loved the places that we stayed over night even our tent camp. Each of the over night places had their own charms. The food was good too.
We had an amazing time.
Thank you Davis and Sam!

Perfectly organised with excellent communication and support!
5/5

We are family of 11, aged between 3.5yrs to 72yrs from two different countries. Our trip involved three countries, 5 different flights at 5 different places. Skywide perfectly managed to book all the local and international flights, pick-ups and drop-offs, hotels, tours, meals and online check-ins until we safely come back. As it is a family dream holiday our expectation was high. Being a big group of family, our priority was to find a tour operator with details and good organisation expertise. Skywide was the perfect choice from the beginning - accurate, speedy, pleasant but polite, reassuring, eyes for details to accommodate my family with high expectation (my family travel a lot, so they know what they want!). Skywide was always quick in responding, with different means of communication, any of my requests regardless of how big or small the issue was. They never just guessed their responses but found the right source to clarify any questions. We went through all the details through emails many times and made sure that we understand what's involved with the programme - everything matched as promised. No hidden things that cause any extra expenses and provided all the support that we requested through out the trip.

We loved both of our safari trip in Amboseli and Tsavo with knowledgable tour&driver guide. The beach holiday followed was perfect to relax after the busy safari tours. We liked their programme as it has both safari and beach holiday. The hotels they put us in were excellent and comfortable.

Most of all, there was not even a single mistake moving us around and everything went perfectly as planned! I even checked the hotels and flights all by myself and I felt that the total cost was honest too.

I have already recommended Skywide to my expats friends who are looking into tour operators for their own holidays and shared my totally fabulous experience. I feel so lucky that I found them!
