great and flexible operator that delivers what's promised

Due to an uprise of Covid at home (Belgium) and a lot of paperwork and pcr testing, our planning - that was initiated just weeks before departure was not easy and not at all sure. But we managed to keep good communication, and keep the original planned tour and time schedule. If something would have come up, I 'm sure KT would have found a solution for it. We <ent on a 4 day safari from Nairobi to Diani Beach, visiting Amboseli, Tsavo West and Tsavo East (and stopping at Mzima Springs).
Daniel - our driver- told us about the animals and the fauna in Kenya he spotted while driving, often ebfore we saw or recognized them. HOn teh radio with the other drivers they shared info to find animals in the parks. Everything about this tour was like we hoped for: communication with KT, value for money, reliability, game drives,... just a great experience. Coming november we go on a bicycle trip to Uganda with a NGO after fundraising for a school to be built there. But Kenia sure took a place in our heart, and we already miss it, for the game driving but also for its nature and for the people living there. We will be back.

Wonderful experience

This was our first safari experience and it was wonderful! Our driver Said was the best! He picked us up from the Nairobi airport and took us on an amazing journey! We are definitely picking this safari pack on our next visit and cannot recommend them enough!

Loved everything about this safari tour!

Firstly, having contact with KingTomondo before the trip was always nice, they answered any questions quickly and met all my special requests.
Our guide, Daniel, picked us up at our hotel in the morning and took care of us for the whole four days. He was a good driver and great to talk to. On the way to Amboseli, we stopped to buy lovely avocado and fruit from sellers on the side of the road, we had brought a knife and some salt for the avocado. I highly recommend doing this. Amboseli was wonderful, we got to see the most beautiful view of Mt Kilimanjaro, lots of Elephants and other animals. In Tsavo we got to see lovely views over the plains, the real African-Kodac-moments and had a very unique encounter with a cheetah. Daniel told us lots about the animals and the fauna in Kenya and we learned a lot. He knew all the other drivers and they helped each other when there was a special animal found somewhere in the area. Daniel really was the extra icing on this safari-cake he answered all our questions about life in Kenya and became a really nice friend. Everything about this tour worked out great! Communication with KingTomondo, value for money, reliability and the tour itself gets 10/10 from us. (Family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers.) A memory for life! Thank you KingTomondo and Daniel!

Perfect organization, communication, knowledge of the parks lodges and good choice of the driver

What a fantastic trip!

I send you our warmest thanks for the perfect organization of our first safari in Kenya.
You have provided precise answers to our many questions with good solutions every time. The choices of lodges we occupied were perfect and varied with each time a warm welcome and excellent food.
Thanks to our driver Dan’s perfect knowlege of each Park, we discovered the famous big five of Kenya in their natural surrounding and so many other animals. Now, we have thousands of photos to classify, another pleasure of the travel.
Daniel is a good person, serious, competent and discreet, respectful of nature, his vehicle and his passengers. Please, give Dan as much work as he can d Daniel is a good person, serious, competent and discreet, respectful of nature, his vehicle and his passengers. rive.

Very well organized private safari

We are very happy that we choose KingTomondo for our safari! We first had a one day tour to Shimba hills and then a four day tour to Tsavo East, Amboseli and Ziwani.
Our driver Said was very experienced in finding animals and we always felt confident. We hope we can go with him again in the future!
We fully recommend KingTomondo and Said for a great safari. We really had wonderful days!

Perfect planning, incredible experience!

When planning our trip to Kenya we contacted a number of travel agencies, from the initial contact and proposal we had a good feeling about KingTomondo Safaris. The communication was to the point, Lisa understood immediately our preferences and tailored the itinerary accordingly.

The proposed itinerary was a 7-day safari through Tsavo East, Amboseli and Tsavo West, the lodges and camp sites where carefully selected all offering amazing views in prime locations in each of the parks.

On the first day of our Safari we were met at the hotel by Aziz, our guide/driver throughout the entire journey, an amazing and charming person with a lot of knowledge about the fauna and flora of the parks we visited. For an amateur photographer as myself it was a pleasure to have Aziz at our side, never in a hurry and allowing enough time for taking photographs. During our trip we where able to spot four out of the Big Five animals.

Lisa and KingTomondo's team am are very involved and will assist you with all the practical arrangements (airport transfers, hotel bookings, ... or even a last minute hot air balloon safari.

Despite the COVID pandemic we had safe journey, KingTomondo and all lodges handled everything in a professional manner, this should not hold you of visiting Kenya and it's parks.

We'll definitely return to Kenya and will book with Lisa again!

Reliable people. Excelent Safari . Amazing driver/guide.

After reading some good reviews, we decided to go with the KingTomondo Safaris, and we couldn’t be happier. Literaly they made the dream come true. They have tailor made our safary to our bugdet and expectations and even helped us with things outside the Safari days, like pick-ups, PCR test. All of that with honest prices.
They treat you like family. Lisa is readly available and an honest person. The places We stayed were really what we expected.
We were lucky to have Daniel as our Guide/driver. What an amazing person and incredible guide, ready to answer all questions and really experient . With his help We spotted chitas hunting a gnu, We had close encounters with lions and elephants and spoted the big 5 and the big 9! And most of all, We felt like We were traveling with a friend.
We recomend Lisa and Daniel 100%.

An indescribable great 8 days Safari with KingTomondo!

The safari was breathtaking. We saw so many animals, all the lodges were great and our memories will be unforgettable. Dan, our driver, was the perfect guide. We always had the feeling that we were in the right place at the right time. His knowledge and skills, his sense of humor were perfect. We couldn't have imagined a better driver and guide than Dan. Everything was just perfect.
Thanks to KingoTomondo for this indescribable safari, thanks for the organization and Lisa's professional communication at all times. The way how quickly Lisa responded to our questions and requests was one of the main reasons why we chose KingTomondo. We will unreservedly recommend KingTomondo and Dan to our friends and families.

Perfect holiday despite Covid-19

Second safari with Tomondo. A bit hesitant because of the travel situation at first, but decided to give it a go nevertheless. We were not disappointed! In fact, for anyone looking for a fun but safe holiday right now, I can really recommend going for a safari. It really doesn't get easier to maintain "social distance" than on a safari in the middle of nowhere. The parks were not as full as during our visit, making for a much more relaxed visit. No queues, we were often the only jeep at a sight! The lodges also handled things very well. All in all, we didn't feel any more at risk than in Germany, maybe even less so.

Please note: Tests are needed to go to Kenya and back to Germany, even if you are fully vaccinated. A bit annoying but also made us feel safe, despite we already got our vaccination. We would like to thank Lisa and the rest of the team for making us familiar with the current entry rules and for always being quick to help if we had any questions. They also organized our tests at Diani Hospital so we didn't have to worry about that.

Amboseli & Tsavo, 5-days

Asante sana to King Tomondo!
We enjoyed the tour very much and appreciated Dan a lot for guiding, driving and company. The accomodations even exceeded our expectations (Kibo Safari, Voyager Ziwani, Salt Lick Lodge and Sentrim Tsavo).
Thank you also for easy and reliable communication.
