Amazing Hike

John was super quick to respond and communicated well throughout the experience. I was picked up very timely and was also able to rent some final equipment, which was all of great quality and in excellent state.
Daniel, Kevin and Timothy were a great team to have during the hike. Daniel walked in a very comfortable speed and always reminded me to take some water. Kevin was always in great spirits and Timothy cooked some excellent vegetarian dishes.
I would highly recommend this route, as the trek down to Chogoria offers some new stunning views.
I would recommend reaching out to Keshi tours directly for all arrangements.

Great people, amazing experience!

Let me start off by saying I was extremely wary of traveling during COVID, but John at Keshi Tours made everything perfect! Very professional, highly communicative, and worked with me every step of the way to keep me informed and make sure I had everything I needed. John was also extremely flexible about the timing of payments due to the uncertainty around COVID travel planning, which I am extremely grateful for.

The safari itself was an absolute dream and I would book again in a heartbeat. We saw the big 5 and my guide was extremely knowledgeable about animal behaviors and territories within the park. As a photographer, this helped us track and locate certain animals while no other cars were around. We were always in position for great pictures and my guide was extremely patient with me and let me decide what animals I wanted to look for and how long I wanted to stay with them.

This is the second safari I’ve been on and Keshi Tours was above and beyond the other. If you are on the fence about booking or can’t decide between two companies, trust me when I say Keshi Tours will not disappoint you!

A great team to turn your plans reality

As soon as I set myself to hike mount Kenya I knew I could find some difficulties accomodating my conditions (I was to move out of Embu at the same time, and I did not have the ideal equipment for the adventure), budget and desired itinerary. John from Keshi tours was very flexible and keen on my demands, even getting me a sleeping bag, pick-up in Embu, luggage kept safely, and drop-off in Nairobi. The hike itself was great; his father Mr Benson Kinaro a gentleman and knowledgeable guide, the porters and cook always in good mood and delivering a great service (Sammy's soups were a tremendous boost for morale if not a lifesaver). Their flexibility and fair costs made for a terrific time in the amazing mount Kenya. Fully recommended.

Unforgettable Experience

When we were planning to visit Masai Mara, Mr John was introduced to us by a common friend. He made our planning so easy and confortable by providing us the right choices. Air Kenya flight booking to Masai Mara and the Olare Mara Kempenski bookings were made meticulously. And we had a very comfortable stay and Safari experience

Maasai Mara amazing tour

John Kinaro made every arrangement perfect. We had a great driver who was also our tour guide. He explained every detailed about animals and the place. We also visited maasai village and had a great evening there with their village elder. We even drunk fresh blood from the bull. Thank you John and your team, It was an adventure of my life.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide up Mt. Kenya

Excellent experience! We are experienced hikers but alone could not have followed the snakes trails that our guide knew by heart.

Excellent service

Working with Keshi tours was EXCELLENT! They answered all our questions in a timely manner, helped us stay within a budget we needed, and was so patient as we made multiple changes to our reservations. We cannot wait to go Masai mara again this summer, and it is sure to be perfect because of Keshi tours and John

Great value for money

I booked my trip to Maasai Mara in May 2019 through Keshi Tours. We left Nairobi on a Friday morning and returned on Sunday late afternoon (3 days, 2 nights).

To start with, the driver who took us there was very friendly and punctual. He made everyone feel comfortable, which was really important as we had joined the trip with people from different cultures including visiting tourists and we were all meeting for the first time. He was able to interact cordially with all on board which set the tone for a weekend together.

The trip to Mara is about 6 hours and part of the road is not tarmacked. The tour van provided was new and very comfortable. We stopped halfway along the way at Narok town for buffet lunch before proceeding with the remaining part of the journey. There was also lunch on the trip back to Nairobi, all part of the package.

On arrival, we checked into our tents. We had paid the budget package which was really affordable and we were impressed by the budget camp we were booked in. The tents imitate a small house, complete with a cemented floor and an in-built bathroom.

The first game drive started shortly after our arrival at the camp at around 4 p.m. Although we had less than 2 hours in the park on the first day (all visitors must be out of the park by 6 p.m.) we were able to spot 3 of the big five. We actually spotted all the big 5 within the 3 days we were there. Obviously the team cannot promise that you will spot all the big 5 but this team did their best to make sure we witnessed all the breathtaking moments, which is partly from knowing the park very well and partly great communication with their peers which is evident from the interpersonal skills we had already witnessed from this tout operator. In fact, rather unexpectedly we were able to spot the elusive leopard!

Other than the big 5, we also were able to witness moments like a pair of cheetahs hunting a baby gazelle, lions' mating season, and a pack of hyenas fighting with a mother bufallo for her sickly calf (the hyenas won, sadly).

This trip was the most relaxing trip ever. A big part of that was because we were able to relax and trust that everything would be well taken care of, and John and his team did not disappoint. I have since had other great experiences in different places with Keshi Tours and that was only possible because of the standard set by this operator.

I finally found a reliable and customer-centred tour-operator!
