A Safari To Remember Forever
5/5

We had an amazing experience booking with Salina Wild Adventures. Charles was very communicative and very involved in the booking process. His constant help and availability were one of the main reasons we booked with him. He was also very flexible in changing arrangements that would fit our travel needs and schedule.

Upon arrival, we had an amazing tour guide/driver named Viktor. We truly believe that without Viktor we wouldn't have had such an amazing vacation. Viktor was always on time (and early) waiting for us with a big smile. His reliability, positive energy, and his knowledge of all the animals truly turned this into an educative and memorable vacation.

Both Charles and Viktor were always available and ready to assist with any request we had. Thank you for such a great experience!

Personalised focus to match your Kenya holiday aims.
4/5

Having decided that we wanted to explore Kenya with its acclaimed wild life and pristine beaches, we made comms with Charles at Salina Wild Adventures who was very attentive and flexible in creating a bespoke 8 day tour of Kenya.

We took in the sights and sounds of Masaai Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha and Diani Beach.

He offers a wide range of options and price points - be as precise as you can be and Charles will make it possible.

He took care of every detail and was very responsive.

The hot air balloon flight over the Mara will live with me forever!

Thanks Charles

The best tour agency in terms of service delivery
5/5

Thanks to the exceptional consultants and service providers who did their job exceptionally, preciselyand concisely with understanding and professionalism. Best in time keeping, coordination and giving direction.
We explored captivating Tsavo West and Tsavo East, witnessing majestic elephants and diverse landscapes. After the thrilling safari, the transition to idyllic Diani beach was seamless, with white sandy shores and crystal -clear waters. An unforgettable all in one Kenyan experience. I highly recommend Salina Wild Adventures for an exemplary safari Adventure and tour.

5/5

*Profesional and committed tour agency*

Our Kenya safari, covering Maasai Mara, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha was a dream come true. Thanks to our exceptional consultant, we witnessed the Great migration. Exploring Amboseli's majestic landscapes and meeting the Maasai community added cultural depth. Phinorah's expertise and personalized approach made this safari a truly unforgettable experience. Highly recommend Rochar Africa Expédition for an extraordinary African Adventure.

Amazing and Surreal!
5/5

As a solo woman traveler Salina Wild Adventures went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect to my comfort. The driver, Kennedy (Ken) was at my, and the others, service 24 hours a day. I was able to see the “Big 5” and everything else I dreamt of. The up close experience was surreal. Adding the hot air balloon took the adventure to another level. I did the 6 day tour, stayed in midrange accommodations, and visited most of the reserves/parks in Kenya. I wish I would have added on Tanzania. An experience with memories you I never forget and do again. In comparison to the other quotes I received, Salina Wild Adventure by far was the most reasonably priced with the same experience, from my perspective, as everyone else who completed the same 6 day circuit as I did, and paid more with other safari bookings.

Great Customer Care
4/5

I did a 9- day safari with Salina, visiting Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli, Tsavo West and Tsavo East National Parks.

I chose Salina after spending quite a bit of time researching on safaribookings.com.

From the beginning, Charles responded to me quickly and was very helpful, tailoring the safari to suit my needs.

The safari itself went well, although it was probably a little bit too long. I figured I was only going to do a safari in Kenya once in my life! My favourite parks were definitely those further East - Amboseli and the two Tsavos. Masai Mara was disappointing- very dusty, very busy, poor roads and a lack of infrastructure.

My only criticism relates to the accommodation. I stayed in five different places, and the quality varied a lot- it was very hit and miss. I think part of the challenge was that I travelled in high season, and despite booking 6 months in advance, some of the better places (within my budget) were apparently booked out. The cream of the crop are most definitely the Sentrim properties.

Had a great experience!
5/5

This was my first trip to Africa and I had no friends around me who had traveled to Kenya before, so I was a bit worried, but they gave me a lot of advice even before I confirmed the reservation, so I was able to make a final decision.
During the trip, some unexpected accidents happened, but every time they dealt with it sincerely, and I appreciate it. I have no complaints and had one of the most memorable and wonderful trips of my life.
I would like to thank Charles from the bottom of my heart for always being quick to respond from before the trip to after the trip.
I am sure we will travel to Kenya again.

The best safari company!
5/5

The planner Charles was a friendly, reliable, and careful person.
He was flexible in arranging the plan according to our requests.
Also the guides and the drivers were all really nice people!
When we had some problems, Charles quickly responded to our calls and helped us out, even though it was out of his charge.
It was our first trip to Africa, but we were able to enjoy our trip with no worries due to their help.
If we have an opportunity to go there again, we will ask them again!
It was unforgettable and a great experience.
Thank you very much!

Great safari for the price, but budget level is quite basic.
4/5

First off, communication with Charles was excellent. He was responsive to all of my questions and helped with other travel arrangements.

We did a 7 day budget group tour to Massai Mara, Nakuru, Naivasha, Hells Gate, and Amboseli. We usually had 6 people in our van and occasionally 7.

The wildlife viewing was simply incredible. The guides are constantly communicating to each other what they're finding. The parks are gorgeous, and it was interesting seeing the differences between each of them. Our guide was great about stopping for as long as we wanted at each viewing.

So much of your experience depends on the guide you get, which I don't think you'll know till the morning of your trip. Ours was great at finding the animals and answering our questions, but he didn't really offer information without us asking.

Things to be aware of:
This tour included a substantial amount of driving, and you're also in the van during all of the game drives except for Hell’s Gate.

This was a budget tour, and accommodations reflect that. We had broken mesh and zippers at one of our tents. Hot water was not consistently available. There was some construction until pretty late at night. Food was very functional. Not a lot of variety, but it'll keep you fueled.

Each of our accommodations had wifi sometimes, which was great for checking in with family.

Ask about how much drinking water you're allowed.

Game drives typically start very early to get the best opportunities to see what you're there to see....wildlife!

Overall, it was a very positive experience, but I wish Charles had explained a bit more what "budget" really meant.
