A competent and caring tour company.
5/5

A caring and competent tour company!

Being the Academic master in our school I was charged with the responsibility of getting a tour company that would take teachers to a trip following our school's starling performance in 2022 national examination. I had earlier encountered Salina Wild Adventures on Facebook and I decided to try them.
Charles was responsive, generous with information and offered the best rate among the tour companies that I contacted. Our 7 day trip in Masai Mara & Diani beach was perfect. From time management, hotel rooms, kindness and a listening driver-guide I give Salina Wild Adventures 100%. Given another chance I will still choose this company.
Kudos Charles!

Complete Nightmare & worst tour operator in EAST AFRICA
1/5

This tour has been the worst tour of my life. The guide was aggressive and lying to us about park-openings, schedule etc. He turned up late 1 hour in the morning, so everyday we missed the best time of the safari. We were not briefed upon what was the schedule going to be. In the end our old car broke down and we were left without food or water in the heat. I strongly urge you to stay away from this operator. There are amazing safari companies in Kenya. This is not one of them.

Catharina was just manipulative and had no ear for anyone. I accompanied the driver to pick them from their Nairobi hotel on the first day of the tour and it is them that showed up 2 hours later. Her problems started immediately; she would google routes and force the driver to use particular routes. So even before they reached their destination she was already causing trouble. I was in constant communication with her but at no time did she complain about wildlife sighting, that was perfect. It's her manipulative tendencies that made the driver a puppet that couldn't be left to do his job professionally. Catharina would even use abusive language on the driver. Then she suggested that she wanted to have a bush lunch on the last day of the tour, something that wasn't included in the package. Upon enquiring from the hotel and telling her the cost of the same,she said we were trying to exploit her and we agreed that she buys directly from the hotel. In the end she was told the very same price and she refused to buy therefore her claims of being left without food was her own decision. She even forced the driver to do game drive on the last day past the normal time. On their way back to Nairobi the Land cruiser developed a mechanical problem. And because they were left alone in the park as all vehicles had gone to Nairobi, we had to organize for another vehicle to go for them in Emali and drop them in Naivasha. I even checked on her the following day to know she was ok but she neither picked my call nor answer my messages.

We did all that was possible make Catharina happy but she couldn't listen and take our advices. It was a nightmare working with Catharina but we did our best. The driver even gave her binoculars which she deliberately misplaced and insisted she left in the vehicle. The following it was found lying down in the park, broken. Catharina had no apologies to make and nobody asked her to pay/buy another one.

5/5

Isabellah was always available to help us plan our safari. She would reply to our mails and Whatsapp messages even at times that were believed were very late in Kenya. On the day we arrived in Kenya she was there & introduced us to Ken, our driver guide. Our 3 day safari in Masai Mara National Reserve was amazing. Ken was funny and his knowledge of flora and fauna is out of this world.
I recommend Salina Wild Adventures for those people wishing to visit Kenya.

Exceptional services, great planning!
5/5


Our organisation held an end year workshop that was also attended by our donors from Denmark. After the workshop the donors suggested they wanted to visit Kenya parks. A mutual friend linked me up to Charles and he was able to organise a five day private safari to Lake Nakuru, Naivasha and Masai Mara. Despite the short notice, the safari was well planned and our donors were satisfied.
Thank you very much Salina Wild Adventures team for making our donors happy.

Excellent & reliable tour company!
5/5

Charles helped us plan our safari. He was helpful in suggesting accomodation options that fitted by our budget & safari desires. On our day of arrival, he met us at Jomo Kenyatta international Airport & introduced us to our driver/guide, Jared before we could start the safari.
We had a 9 day safari in Kenyan popular parks of Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli, Tsavo West & Tsavo east national parks! Jared was very knowledgeable about the parks & the animals. He was also honest & ready to help whenever we needed hi help.
I recommend Salina wild Adventures to people planning to travel to Kenya & even East Africa.

5/5

Salina wild Adventures is a reliable tours company that exceeds clients expectation.

I visited Kenya in November 2022 for a week. Isabellah helped me plan our safari. She was knowledgeable on parks & various accomodations. She recommended a private tour with midrange accomodation. I can confirm that what Salina wild adventures delivered exceeded my expectations. My family was also satisfied.
Our Driver guide, Jared was very good with us. He was patient with us and answered all our questions regarding the animals. We also managed to see all the Big 5.
We visited Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha & Lake Nakuru National park.
I highly recommend this company to anyone planning to visit Kenya.

Once in a lifetime experience and excellent support.
5/5

To visit Kenya was always my dream and to explore the wildlife was always on my list. My plan was to visit Masai Mara Game Reserve and Lake Nakuru National Park. Thankfully I got in touch with Isabellah and Jared they both guided me in visa process and it was my first visit to Kenya so from Nairobi Airport they picked me and then took me to Masai Mara Game Reserve. The accommodation and food was excellent at the lodge and those game drives were excellent it was amazing to see the animals so closely. After Masai Mara Game Reserve we went to visit Nakuru National Park and to see Rhinoceros was definitely the best thing. I was very happy with visit to Masai Mara Game Reserve and Lake Nakuru National Park so I recommend everyone to visit both the places and go with Salina Wild Adventures as they are experienced and excellent in planning such wonderful trips.
