Reliable and going for the extra mile
5/5

Our tour guide and driver Rono really did his utmost to have an enjoyable safari week with him. Very knowledgable and spotted animals way before we did.... And with patience we were able to view the big 5. Previously it took me 3 weeks of safari to have that chance, so well done Rono!
Communication with Morningstars through Dennis was very easy and effectively, sometimes responses within the hour.
Highly recommended.

Personalized, available, caring
5/5

Hello,
We are a couple and a safari was my husband’s dream trip.
I looked online and found Morningstar and sound me ok. Best decision ever.
My practitioner was Alice and the driver was Alex. They were both amazing.
Alice was able to understand what I wanted from the trip and adapt the plan accordingly. She was always polite, understanding, sympathetic, empathic and always always responded promptly to any query, even during the trip.
I found that this was a very smooth and easy holiday thanks to her, very similar to what I would do if I was booking it myself.

Alex was an excellent guide. He could find the animals in places that I would never find. He has the best eye sight ever. He was always polite, on time, kind, explaining the things around. He respected the plan but also suggested adaptations so we could take the most of our trip (what worked wonders).

This was not the most affordable travel, but that was our choice. We decided to have an extra day in Nairobi to rest, a jipe for only 2, and our hotels were quite good.
By the way, the choice of the rooms was on spot considering the major opportunities of each hotel, for example, the room in Naivasha allowed us to see the Hypos at night, otherwise, we would have not seen them so closely.

I do not regret a second using Morningstar and I am very happy for the professionals we had.

5/5

Morningstar were fab. I'm so glad we booked with them - Alice in head office was amazing. She helped us plan the perfect break at a really great cost. I must of changed the plan 10 times and nothing was too much trouble. Everything went so smoothly and there were no hiccups at all.

Willis, our driver was excellent - knew the parks like the back of his hand, always knew where to spot the animals and went the extra mile to make our trip perfect.

10/10 would recommend.

Morning Star Tour which excellent services, knowledgeable guides, and well-planned
5/5

Dear Morningstar Travel Agency,

I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional 8-day, 7-night safari experience in Kenya. The entire journey was made truly unforgettable, thanks to your outstanding services, knowledgeable guides, and meticulously planned itinerary.

From the moment we arrived, your team ensured that every detail was taken care of. The private chartered vehicle was not only comfortable but also allowed us to explore the vast and diverse landscapes of Kenya with ease. Our guides were not only experts in wildlife and conservation but also great companions who shared their passion for the natural wonders of Kenya.

The itinerary you put together was a perfect balance of adventure, relaxation, and cultural immersion. We had the privilege of witnessing the breathtaking wildlife in their natural habitat, from the majestic Maasai Mara to the stunning landscapes of Amboseli National Park. Each day brought new discoveries and unforgettable moments that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Your commitment to responsible tourism and sustainable practices also left a positive impact on us. It's clear that Morningstar Travel Agency not only values its clients but also the environment and local communities.

Once again, thank you for the remarkable safari experience in Kenya. It exceeded all our expectations, and we are incredibly grateful for the memories we've made. We will wholeheartedly recommend Morningstar Travel Agency to anyone seeking an extraordinary adventure in Africa.

Warmest regards,
Lester

Dennis is we two's tour consultant. From the very beginning, he showed professionalism and reliability in arranging our travel plans, easing our worries about our 1st time African visit adventure. His dedication and responsiveness were truly remarkable. Despite the time zone differences, he always responded promptly, even during late hours, making it feel like his service were available 7x24(surely not..). His genuine concern for our experience was evident as he checked in with us daily and swiftly handled any issues that arose during our journey. His expertise and efficiency left a lasting impression on us thought the trip. We felt confident in his guidance and support, which allowed us to fully immerse ourselves in the wonders of Kenya without any unnecessary concerns.
Alex took us for the whole amazing Safari. We are truly and sincerely oBliged to him for taking us on those long and adventurous treks to witness the stunning wildlife of Kenya. His passion ,and knowledge of the animals' habit and characteristics added a new dimension to the safari, making the safari even more fascinating and meaningful. During the 1st day's afternoon tour, the cheetah passed by our car super nearly. With Alex's excellent driving and patient guidance, we have saw all big fives even six and the whole lion family (10 lions) and taken many amazing photos! His dedication and expertise as a guide made our journey really unforgettable.

Amazing Team!
5/5

I had a great experience with MorningStar.
I booked 5 days Safari and 3 days Diani Beach stay.
Denis, Tour Consultant has planned every detail of the trip and was very responsive to messages.
I went for option with downgraded hotels so that it was more affordable. The accomodation he booked was still very good and I was happy with it.
James, Safari Guide/Driver always knew where to find animals and was knowledgeable about them. He was taking photos using my phone so that I could concentrate on watching the animals which was very sweet.
I can highly recommend Morning Star !

Amazing experience in the wild
4/5

We spent 3 days and 2 nights respectively in Salt Lick Lodge and in Kibo Camp (in front of Kilimangiaro). We visited 3 parks: amboseli was incredible! We saw lots of animals like lions, elephants, hippo, etc. Our guide Daniel was very nice giving is the possibility to Make lots of nice pictures! Alice as Morning Star’s tour operator was available 24hours for any kind of assistance. We liked Amboseli a lot with Kilimangiaro’s view: thanks to our guide Daniel we visited also a Masai Village in front of Kilimangiaro. Here we entered in touch with local culture and traditions.

The communication with Morningstar safari, especially the Tour agent Ms. Alice was very smooth. She’s very professional & responsive to all our questions.
The payment option for the tour was safe, using credit card.
Our driver, Alex was on time in picking us in the airport and driving us to Amboseli including our Game Drives. Can’t say thank you enough…

We stayed in Kibo Safari camp and everything was perfect. The food was delicious, I was quite worried with that before the trip.

Thank you so much guys. We are hoping to be back soon!!!!
