A great and incredible holidays in Kenya and Zanzibar
5/5

We booked with Silas a trip of 6 days Safari in Kenya + 4 days in Zanzibar for our family of 4 people with 2 teens. All the arrangements and the final price were very good, so we chose to do it with them. Since we arrived we felt very Welcomed by Silas and the guide John "the lion King". John always cared a lot about us and gave us a lot of security. He was very concerned so that we could see all the animals, he took us to all the places we asked for and he became friends with the whole family, especially the little one with whom he created a great complicity. In the end, since we had not been able to see the rhinoceros and we had several hours left to catch the plane to Zanzibar, John spoke with Silas and they additionally paid us the entrance fee to Nairobi National Park so that we could see it and that's how it was. It was incredible. We also lost the binoculars and John and Silas brought them to us at the airport on our return from Zanzibar so we could recover them. In short, a very customer-oriented company, which offered us a lot of security and made us enjoy these incredible vacations a lot. 100% recommended

Excellent customer service, excellent trip!
5/5

We just returned from an amazing safari in Kenya. Silas was exceptionally patient and answered all questions prior to the trip, and not only that - he fulfilled all of what was promised, everything went off without a hitch. We had a 9 day, 3 park safari - Samburu, Nakuru and Masai Mara. Make sure you do them in this order, Masai Mara is the cherry on top. Our driver was kind, very safe, and knowledgeable about the parks, animals, and was able to spot even notoriously difficult to find big cats.
Highly recommend the company and the safaris organized by Silas.

Adventure of a Lifetime…
5/5

We took a three-park package spread over 6 days —Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, and Amboseli — which we knew was adventurous. Silas told us as much during our organisation stage, but the fact that he answered all of our many, many questions openly and honestly made us feel that we had made the right choice.
Our driver, Dickson, was attentive, courteous and accommodating all while being un-intrusive. He worked extremely hard in all the parks to ensure we saw the widest possible range of animals resulting in the big five and the ugly five among the many, many others. The Sopa Lodge hotels were the perfect settings with great staff, excellent hospitality and everything to make our stay memorable. The lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge truly is a magical place and location — one that would be an Instagram dream.
We arrived in Kenya hoping for a Kenyan introduction but it was so much more. It wasn’t Europe; it wasn’t the USA or South East Asia, it was the cradle of life full of adventure supported by humble, caring and welcoming people.

Incredible experience, delivered by an incredible tour provider!
5/5

Just back after a brilliant 9 day adventure with Apodiformes!

Silas (the owner) communication was spot on with really quick responses at any time of the day, helping to make me feel comfortable with such a big purchase remotely!

We were lucky enough to have Isiah as our guide! Hilarious, knowledgeable and experienced! He know when and where we should be to make sure got the most out of the experience!

He also went the extra mile by doing things like printing out our train tickets for us including the return leg, this is something that friends we made that were with a different tour provide had to do themselves. Little things like that helped to make our trip a once in a lifetime!


A couple of things to note/put you at ease when booking:
- The payment portal on the link that Silas sends you does look a little suspect, but it is real and works fine.
- Communication is mainly through WhatsApp which is fantastic for easy chatting
- There are a few additional trips/activities that you can do along the way, a boat ride round a lake Naivasha $80 per boat, a visit to a Masai mara camp $30 per person, these aren't mandatory, but worth knowing about before you go!


Overall I would highly recommend Apodiformes for any tour you might be considering!

Lifetime experience, and would do it all over again
5/5

This was our third time in Kenya and our second trip to Mara NP, yet the safari experience exceeded our expectations.

Silas always promptly replied to the messages and kindly went back and forth with my requests. We finally settled for a 1 day Nakuru, 3 day Masai Mara private tour, upgraded our jeep and were assigned to Nelson, our king driver. I really appreciated that Silas checked in on us during our safari trip.

Nelson helped us with any luggages at all times. He is not a very talkative guide but very knowledgeable and you could still see all the effort he put into the 4 days we spent with him. My husband is also into photography so angles and light are very important. Nelson kindly and patiently waited and drove around as necessary and as best he could.

We saw all the big five, some of them, numerous times because Nelson really made sure to be in the right spots at the right time.

Asante sana. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.

Best service provider , unforgettable hospitality, professional tour guides cum drivers
5/5

I found about Apodiformes adventures through Safari.com. Contacted Mr. Silas who is very kind, friendly and professional.
He communicated with me and finalized my itinerary as per my need and offered me a tour package in my budget.

All the Lodges and hotels he booked for me such as Tamrind tree hotel in Nairobi, Enkorok Mara camp in Masaimara, Nakuru Sopa lodge in Nakuru, Amboseli Sopa Lodge in Amboseli were superb. All located at great locations, having professional and friendly staff and provided great service.

Our driver cum guide Mr. Gibson, who was with us for 8 days, was very friendly person, having good communication skill in English and showed us all the places and showed us all the animals Kenya could offer.

I am so greatful to Silas, Gibson and Apodiformes adventures for this memorable trip.

Kenya is best place for wild safari, adventures and relax. Yellow fever is very rare so nothing to worry about that, even no need to get yellow fever vacation, Kenyan people are very nice, kind and tourist welcoming.

I highly recommend everyone to visit Kenya and get the service of Apodiformes adventures to make your Kenya vacation pleasant and unforgettable.

Thanks Silas.
Love you man. Keep the good work up.

I miss you Kenya, wanna come again.

Hope to see you..

Amazing trip
5/5

We had a very remorable trip for 8 days. We had a great driver/guide Mr Robert. who made all the effort to make it exciting for our family and is very good in spotting wild animals and showing us and explaining their habitats.

The accommodation and planning was perfect.

10 day Kenya trip was excellent with Apodiformes Adventures
5/5

My family of 4 went with Apodiformes adventures to Kenya on a 10-day trip. Silas(owner) was the person I communicated with; most importantly, he responded within less than ten minutes of my text every time. He was top on communication and answered every question about each park and stay. Silas worked with me on days and lodges where I wanted to stay. He provided a ten-day plan with Toyota Land Cruiser that covered Nairobi, Samburu, Ol Pejeta, Naivasha, Masai Mara, and luxury accommodation at each place. Most importantly, Silas helped talk and pick up my luggage from NBO airport when my luggage was delayed for three days. He picked up and assigned a driver to drop the luggage from NBO to Ol Pejeta (4hr drive) on the 4th day of our stay after the luggage was delayed. My family is grateful for Silas's help with luggage handling at the airport.
Maxwell was our guide for the Nairobi day trip and he took us to the places we requested. The best part is Maxwell took us to Cultiva Farm for an excellent lunch. We started the next day with Big Tom as our guide, who treated us as a family and took great care of my family. For the remaining nine days, Tom checked with us how the day went by and tried to help my family see all animals at each park. Based on my experience spending time with Tom, he knew a lot of other drivers at each lodge where we stayed and communicated at each park to spot animals. We saw all the Big Five across the different parks, the three varieties of Giraffes and other types of animals. Tom spotted the birds and named them so my kids could know. While driving across the ¬different lodges where we stayed, he helped us explain the cultures and things about Kenya. Tom was an excellent spotter of the wild animals and took good care while driving in the park and between lodges. Overall we are thrilled (5 Stars) with our 10-day trip to Kenya from Apodiformes Adventures and its owner Silas for the service and support before and after the trip. We will come back to Kenya in the future and book with Silas@Apodiformes adventures. I highly recommend going with Silas@Apodiformes Adventures and Tom as your guide for any of your trips to Kenya.

Wonderful trip
5/5

We had an incredible time on our recent safari. We spent two weeks in Kenya and Tanzania visiting a total of six parks, everyone just a little different, but wonderful animal viewing in each. The accommondations exceded our expections, everyone was so helpful, and the food was delicious. Our guides were informative and each knew the parks and the best place to view the animals. A special shout out to William in Tanzania, if he wasn't pointing out or telling us about various animals and birds, he was teaching us Swahili words and phrases. if in Tanzania, ask for William!
Everyone was on time and on schedule, with no unexpected surprises. In fact our arrival was delayed a day due to the airline getting to Nairobi, but Silas was able to make the necessary adjustment on very short notice.
We are happy to recommend Apodiformes Adventures.
