Silas was very attentive and accommodating and went beyond expectations to help before our safari.

Silas was great. He answered my texts promptly while planning our safari and accommodated a change in the itinerary. Not only did he pick us up late at night at the airport, but took us around the next day to get a few things we needed for our trip, including a bird book. Plus, he took us to the Giraffe Centre. Once on safari, our guide Freddy worked hard to find all the animals we wanted to see. We saw the big 5 within two days, plus the Ugly Five and many, many more. Well above our expectations. Kevin, his trainee, had a good eye for birds as well and was very personable. We are birders and were hoping to see 50 different species. Freddy increased that goal to 100 and we ended up recording 104, plus many more not identified. We stayed 2 nights at Masai Mara, 2 nights at Lake Nakuru, and 2 nights in Amboseli. The Sopa Lodges were very good as was the food. The whole experience was amazing! It helped that Freddy and Kevin were enthusiastic about providing a great time for us. Our safari was great value for the price, very reasonable. We hope to return someday with family and will use Apodiformes Adventures again.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary on the best possible way thanks to Apodiformes, Silas and our guide Loi. Can't stop talking about the hospitality, attention to details, adapting the trip to our wishes and needs. Constant communication for over a month with Silas produced the perfect trip. We didn't know what to expect except the places we wanted to visit, Kenya and Tanzania. Silas did it all, the accommodations were superb. The knowledge and attention we received from Loi was very high and professional but we ended up with a feeling as we knew each other forever.
We highly recommend Apodiformes to everybody looking for a carefree trip and unforgettable moments. Silas set the bar high for every other trip in the future.
Thank you guys

Lifetime memories thanks to Apodiformes Adventures

From the very first WhatsApp contact we had until we personally met at the Nairobi airport Silas was always very professional, efficient, flexible and friendly.
Silas had organized a fantastic private safari tour from Masai Mara across Amboseli till Tsavo East and West. This tour included accommodations in three different and beautiful camps/lodges and it included unforgettable meetings with locals and also delicious local food.
Our guide Isaiah found the best safari routs to the animals so we could see their activities. 7 unforgettable and magical days have been like a magnificent dream.
We are very grateful to the Apodiformes Adventures for this memorable trip and for the feeling of complete safety we had with them. We can give our full recommendations to everyone looking for a good ratio in between investment and a profit.
Thank you again and we hope to see you again!

Best bang for your money

Apodiformes is probably the best tour operator out in Kenya who can plan and execute your safari experience to the fullest satisfaction. Silas is on top of things all the time and he is available literally 24/7. When I had to upload my hotel reservation for getting the visa, I sent a Whatsapp message to Silas at what must have been 2AM Kenya time and within 10 minutes he sent a copy of my reservations in a pdf and jpg file. Excellent support. Silas was always checking in with us and was tireless in helping us plan. I probably talked to him and kept changing my itinerary as and when I got more information from my research and he never got upset or frustrated. I must have changed my itinerary and routes at least 8 times over the course of 2 months of planning and not once did his response and service quality dip.

He also helped us find the best possible locations to stay and places to cover within our budget. Apodiformes and Silas were able to accommodate us in a Private Safari, with a customized itinerary, all entrance fees included and at least 2 4*+ hotels and the rest in very good accommodations. He was also able to accommodate our dietary restrictions (Vegan and Vegetarian) at all places we stayed.

Coming to the actual safari experience - TV and Documentaries cannot do justice to what you will be experiencing. If you have a chance, ask for LOUIS as your tour guide. Louis was the best and knows all the good places where you can get to see the animals in all their glory and natural habitat. At Masai Mara within the first hour of our evening drive, he was able to get us up close and personal with 3 of the big 5 (Buffalo, Lion and Elephant) along with the usual Zebras, Giraffe etc. The next day we were able see the elusive leopard and he got us so close to the leopard that it was surreal. Louis knows all the ins and outs of the safari circuit and was able to fulfil all our requests (wife wanted to see flamingoes up close, daughter wanted to see a running cheethah and I wanted to see elephants crossing the road in front of us - Louis managed to fulfil all our requests, some multiple times over the course of the safari).

We still need to cover Northern Kenya and Tsavo reserves (both east and west) and we plan to be back in the near future. We will definitely be availing the services of Apodiformes, Silas and Louis.

My honest opinion - Go with Apodiformes and you can't go wrong!

Very reliable tour operator giving the best possible experience

We had a beautiful holiday - including a 6-day safari and a beach holiday - in Kenya thanks to the team of Apodiformes Adventures. We chose them to organize our trip because Silas was the first to answer for our quote request and we found both the description of the tour and the price very reasonable. Silas was always quick and helpful to respond our questions/requests while we were preparing for the tour. Everything was just perfect during our stay in Kenya. We enjoyed the safari very much and we are so grateful to our guide, Jackton who is one of the best guides, I am sure :-). Thanks to him we could always watch the animals "in the first row". Jackton did all his best to take us as close to the animals as we could get. Not only did he give us a lot of information about everything and answered all our questions, but he also took a very good care of us: we always had drinking water in our car, we never had to use bush toilet, because he always found better solutions, etc. We are extremely satisfied with the organization of the tour, with all kind of accommodation we used (safari camps, lodge, beach hotel) and with the service we received. So, thank you Silas, Jackton and Joseph for making our trip so memorable. You deserve 5+ for your service :-).

Best is service

From the moment we landed in Kenya, till the very end of our journey, we were very really happy with the hospitality and care. We did not face the lack in any aspect and were genuinely satisfied with the service.

Mr. Silas, the manager, took utmost care of us since we landed in Kenya. He personally showed up to pick us up from the airport and helped us with our luggage. We were dropped at our place of stay, with a lot of recommendations, tips, and a lot of knowledge about Nairobi. He ensured that all his commitments were kept throughout our whole stay, and he takes care of his customers with utmost care. Most of all, he prioritizes our comfortability and safety. He also has good connections with the accommodations and transportation systems there, which proved to be of high standards.

We would also like to highlight and mention our driver and guide, Mr. Tom, or according to the kids, beloved Uncle Tom. He really is a great asset to this company with his phenomenal attitude and over all a very friendly personality. The kids were super fond of him, and he was a great teacher to them. He was very proactive and greatly prioritized our convenience, especially being considerate of the fact that we had to work around a routine with the kids in mind.

He is also a safe driver. The safari was perfect with him as a guide, and we appreciated the fact that he was keen to show us everything. Thanks to him, the kids could check off a long list of animals. We felt extremely sound with him and trusted him. Have to also mention that all our transfers were easy, all credits to him.

Accommodation was charming and our driver and guide, Jackton was exceptional, so knowledgeable about the area and wildlife and always got us the best view! Better than we ever imagied. Will recommend Apodiformes whole heartedly.
