Extremely friendly and helpful
5/5

We had the most incredible experience with Issac at Estleon Adventures! From the moment I booked my safari to the day I returned home, they exceeded all my expectations.

The accommodations were nothing short of luxurious, with comfortable lodges that allowed us to immerse ourselves in the heart of the African wilderness while still enjoying modern comforts. The food was outstanding, showcasing delicious local cuisine, and the staff's hospitality was unmatched.

The highlight, of course, was the safari itself. Issac went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible sightings of Africa's iconic animals (including the Big 5!!)

I can't recommend Estleon Adventures enough. If you're looking for a life-changing safari experience this is the company to choose. My safari with them was a dream come true, and I can't wait to book another with them in the future!

Exclusive Five Star Safari Tour Operator
5/5

Just wow!!! We have returned from a safari with Estleon Adventures. Prior to booking with Estleon I had searched through numerous companies offering safaris, however none came close with cost and experience which was offered by this company. Esther, the manager who organised our trip was nothing short of incredible. She custom made our Private Safari including every detail (and I can be a little picky). The accommodation was absolutely outstanding, 5 Star plus! Game drives were beyond our expectations as it was tailored just for our family so we could spend as long as we liked taking photos and taking it all in. Bernard was our guide who was incredible. This is a man who knows his job inside out!! Nothing was too much trouble! We saw ‘The big 5’ many times over, I really don’t have the words to say how incredible our Safari has been!!
I asked Esther for luxury tents and hotels, balloon flight with champagne breakfast and she just kept on delivering and then some!
This company exceeded our expectations ten fold! I really can’t recommend them enough! Just outstanding!!

Estleon will provide you with an amazing safari experience and tailor to your desire.
5/5

Esther of Estleon did an amazing job arranging our 12 day trip to Kenya. She listened to just what we wanted and took the time to patiently tailor our trip to our needs. She was also available while on our safari to address any concerns. I don't know if and when she sleeps! Thank you Esther!
James was our guide from pick up at the airport to drop off. I can't say enough good things about James. He is passionate about his job and very knowledgeable about all the wildlife we saw, including the birds. He has an amazing eye to spot things most would just drive by. The job of a guide like James is exhausting. Driving alone would be too much for most, let alone answering questions and looking for game, but he did it all with the goal of providing us with the best experience as possible. Thank you James! You are a hard worker and a talented amazing guide!
If I have an opportunity to go back I will use Estleon again and request James .

All arrangements were simply perfect
5/5

Everything from airport pickup at Nairobi to my transfer to Masai Mara, to my safaris (open jeep safari!), and back to my hotel in Nairobi was perfectly arranged. There was not even a single hiccup in the entire process. Estleon handles everything herself and answers call even in the middle of the night. Totally recommend her for booking your trip to Masai Mara.

Incredible
5/5

The short and sweet review is I highly recommend doing a safari through Estleon adventures, with high praise for our guide Isaac who made it an incredible experience.

The longer version is we did a 7 day luxury safari, while visiting 4 parks in Kenya. Esther made the whole process easy and she was very responsive to any questions or suggestions she had to make our experience better. She made all the trip logistics where I simply just picked the package, it was easy as that. She was amazing.

Isaac our guide for the week was incredible, and that doesn’t do him justice for how great he was. He was very knowledgeable and always friendly in making every trip and game ride easy and enjoyable. His enthusiasm in the wildlife was apparent from the moment we met him, he was almost as excited to see the wildlife as we were. There were many occasions where we found both him and us were taking pictures with our cameras. He was very respectful of time and being transparent of the schedule and making sure we were on time. As for the game rides, he kept saying we were lucky when we saw many good sights, but without his knowledge of the parks and where to find the animals it wouldn’t have been possible to see what we saw. We would absolutely have Isaac be our tour guide for our next safari.

Estleon adventures should be your only choice for a safari. It was such an amazing adventure and we’ll be referring anyone we talk to to utilize their services.

Safari Dream Come True
5/5

Our 8-day safari experience in Kenya with Estleon Adventures was an absolute dream come true! From start to finish, every moment was filled with awe and excitement, with the incredible wildlife and landscapes.

First and foremost, our tour guide Isaack was exceptional. His passion for the wildlife (and he is a birder like my father!), his extensive knowledge about the local ecosystem, and his friendliness made our safari truly unforgettable. Isaack’s ability to spot animals from seemingly impossible distances was nothing short of astounding, and his knowledge about them enriched every sighting. He was patient with all our questions and went above and beyond to ensure we felt comfortable and engaged throughout the trip.

The itinerary crafted by Estleon Adventures was perfectly balanced, offering a diverse range of experiences that showcased the beauty of Kenya's national parks and reserves. From the majestic elephants roaming Amboseli to the thrilling sight of a lion pride in Maasai Mara, every moment was a highlight in its own right. The accommodations provided were not only luxurious and very comfortable but also immersed us in the heart of the wilderness, creating an authentic and unforgettable experience.

The attention to detail from Estleon Adventures was evident in every aspect of the safari. Our transportation was seamless, the meals were delicious and catered to various dietary needs (I am vegetarian), and the staff at every lodge were incredibly hospitable. The entire team's commitment to sustainable and responsible tourism was truly commendable, and the 5-star service made our journey even more unforgettable.

But it was Isaack who truly stole the show. His enthusiasm for sharing his love of the land and its inhabitants was infectious, and it's safe to say we left Kenya not only with incredible memories but also with a new appreciation for the delicate balance of nature. Isaack’s stories, his insights, and his genuine care for both his job and his guests made him the heart and soul of our safari.

Our first-time safari with Estleon Adventures exceeded all expectations. Thank you for orchestrating this remarkable experience. If you're considering a safari in Kenya, look no further – this is the team you want by your side.

Wonderful! Amazing experience with the best guide James!
5/5

We did a 4 days safari in Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru and had an amazing experience! Our guide, James, was the best .. he knew everything about the animals, the national park and Kenya. We saw basically all the animals from up close, and he made sure we always had the best spot! Wonderful place and experience, highly recommended

Great Safari trip!!
5/5

Willy put tour guide was the best and knowledgable person. Esther the tour manager really welcomed us and kept supporting us through the full safari. Moreover, due to an error from my side, Estleon accomated us in Nairobi on thier expenses. I couldnt ask for better tour than this.

They talk the talk and walk the walk. Would always come back with them

Incredible safari experience from beginning to end!
5/5

Choosing Estleon Adventures for our first safari was the best decision my husband and I could have made for ourselves. Not only was it way more affordable than other travel companies, but the professional was also unmatched. There are not enough words for us to describe the beauty of our trip and our appreciation for Esther and our guide, Ben, but I will do my best with this review.

I have dreamt of exploring Kenya for many years of my life and knew that this is where I would want my first safari experience to be. (It will definitely not be our last!) Kenya is beautiful on its own, but the attention to detail that Esther and her team demonstrated was beyond any experience we have ever had. We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary during the trip and did not really mention it to anyone, but they made sure to make us feel so special throughout the trip. Esther's connections with these luxury resorts made our stays some of the most lavish we have ever experienced.

Thank you, Esther, for making this trip so perfect for us from the first day to the last. You made sure the trip was perfect for us and were in constant communication with us from my interest email many months before our trip to throughout our trip, as well. We will recommend your company to everyone we know and we will definitely be back.

To our tour guide/driver, Ben -- we could not have had a more magical safari experience if it were not for you! Ben was kind, attentive, professional, and so very knowledgable. I've always loved learning about animals (and teaching my students about them) and Ben taught me more facts about these incredible creatures than anyone ever has. You can tell that he has such a passion for his career in tourism and such a respect for wild animals. He is an incredible photographer, as well! Because of Ben, we were able to witness the big five in the wild -- many times! If we wanted to just sit and stare at a group of cheetahs or admire the beauty of a leopard, he let us -- no questions asked. We even witnessed the largest tusked elephant in the world at Amboseli named Craig!

Words and photos will never do this trip justice, but it truly was a trip of a lifetime. This is the longest and most detailed review I have ever written, but that is because this company deserves it. Thank you again!!!

Highly Recommend Estleon for Private Safari
5/5

My wife and I had a wonderful 7 day private safari with Estleon Adventures. Our driver, Isaac, was knowledgeable, personable, patient and a wonderful driver (an essential on Kenyan roads). We saw lots of wildlife, beautiful areas of Kenya and had a great balloon ride. Accommodations and food were outstanding. Esther was great to work with and helpful when we needed to adjust our schedule. Highly recommend Estleon Adventures.
