They were extremely professional and organized, with all the accommodations and activities we wanted

Ardwolf Africa Adventure Safari Limited is one of the best safari operators in Kenya. I just went on a 10-day safari with them and had such a great experience that I decided to write a review. I highly recommend them! Aardwolf did't disappoint. They were very professional, well-organized, and were very flexible in helping to adjust the itinerary to meet our needs. We were a group of 4 and wanted to go on a 10-day safari from Nairobi to Masai Mara. Aardwolf was very helpful us modify the itinerary to fit our needs. I also really enjoyed their blog and thought it was really helpful in getting more information about the parks.

Unforgettable time in Nairobi with Aardwolf..

Aardwolf Africa took us on a safari from Nairobi to Masai Mara. We left our hotel early in the morning and first stop was at the Giraffe Center which was about 30 min drive. This was a nice place to visit in the morning. Then we drove to Masai Mara, the place I wanted to visit. We spent 3 days camping in the Mara. The camping was amazing and the staff was very friendly. We were picked up and dropped off in the Nairobi center. The accommodation was very basic but it was clean. The food was buffet style and it was good. The game driver was great. We saw a lot of animals including leopards. The trip was great.

Beyond my expectations. Brilliant.

An incredible safari, great experience, i was very impressed by the organization....The 4 days / 3 nights safari in Masai Mara. The guide John is an excellent driver, we enjoyed a lot his knowledge and professionalism. He found a lot of animals and explained very well their habits. The food was good and the camp was clean and well maintained. we have 2 full days safari, the third day we visited the Masai village, the experience was amazing. I highly recommend this company, they are very reliable and professional team.

Best safari tour with good staff.

I had the opportunity to go on a safari to Kenya organized by Aardwolf Africa for the first time last month. I have to say that i was surprised to see how well organized it was. The staff was very nice and helpful. One of them a tour guide, Paul was friendly and he had a great knowledge about animals. The vehicles were also very good and we were also very well accommodated.

Fabulous safari with Aardwolf in February 2019!

Both of my husband Jon and I are very satisfied in this safari with our guide Mr. Julius Gikonyo of Aardwolf. Julius is such a good guide and driver during this trip, he speaks English very well and he is humorous. He knows everything and often tell us something new in this trip. Our hotels/lodges/camps are all comfortable and the food is yummy. I have wrote an amazing travelog in my Blog and many fans liked it. One of my colleagues also wants to go to Kenya with her family and Aardwolf is her first choice.

An unforgettable adventure

After our safari cancelation and refund by an other safari company we chose Aardwolf to make a last minute safari. From the first email until today we had a very good feeling with this company. Verah made a perfect 10 days safari to Samburu, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate, Amboseli and Nairobi starting on 24 december 2018 until 4 january 2019. The lodges were beautiful, mainly the Mara Simba Lodge and Amboseli Sopa Lodge, and give us a real Africa feeling. Our driver/guide Paul gave us an unforgettable adventure with great knowledge about animals, regions and other things. We have seen a lot of animals and that's the main reason why you do an safari. The minivan problems were solved with a big African smile by our driver or by others. There was always someone ready to help us. Do not hesitate to book a safari with Aardwolf, Verah and Esther are doing great jobs to make it all possible. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

This company cares!

We had safari with Aardwolf in Masai Mara 29 September - 2 October.

When I was choosing among different companies for safari I noticed that Aardwolf has less reviews than some other companies, so I was hesitant about booking with Aardwolf. But when I firstly came into contact with Verah it was excellent communication. All questions answered professional and she was the only manager among those whom I've contacted, who wasn't trying to fit me in template schedule but was eager to help us choose the best options for us. Also what I like about her - she remembers everything you say: I've asked for binoculars, and she offered to give me one for free and didn't forget that. I've ordered food "no spicy" and didn't had to mention it any more - everyone along my route was notified about my food preferences. Excellent work for a manager!

Now about our guide. Julius is fantastic guide! I had a lot of trips in my life - Amazon, Galapagoss, Indonesia, and he is surely one of the best. In 3 days we have seen everything: leopard - twice! Cheetah - twice! Lions - three times. Hunting lion - also done! Of course a lot of giraffes, antelopes, zebras. More important - he loves his job and cares about environment and people around. I will remember when he just suddenly stopped our car in the savanna where many cars passed before just to pick up a can thrown by somebody. It makes difference! Also he has a lot to tell about wildlife. Very good man, excellent guide and experienced driver.

We definitely recommend Aardwolf, Verah and Julius for everybody doing safari!

Perfect safaris!

We booked our safaris to Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, AMboseli and Tsavo East with Aardwolf Africa and everything was perfect.
We went in august 2018 during 10 days and even during the pick season we had good rates.

Thanks to Verah and our great guides Julius and Jackson we had an amazing trip.
Logistics were perfecly organized, the lodges were very nice (clean, good food, very nice people), the cars were in perfect conditions to go everywhere in the reserves.

We totally recommend Aardwolf Africa for your trips to Kenya!

Thank you again!

Personalized adventure of a lifetime

As first time safari-goers we were a bit hesitant booking everything on-line ourselves. We reached out to several KATO certified companies to see what kind of response and itineraries were available. Verah and Esther at Aardwolf were excellent in communicating with us, offering suggestions and ensuring we had the best options for our tastes. They worked with us to plan the trip we wanted rather than fit us into a pre-planned package. After numerous itinerary updates and revisions, the final schedule was set and the money sent.

Everything was arranged exactly as planned. It was amazing. We had such a good time with our driver Thomas in Kenya, who kept us on track despite some very long days and rough terrain. Our private safari was beyond all expectations: from the animal encounters (which were way better and closer than we would have imagined) to the camps selected (which were amazingly comfortable) to the food (delicious and plentiful).
Even on the transfer day when we were stuck in the mud for hours, Thomas kept in touch with the Aardwolf office to ensure everyone knew what was going on and we could stay on schedule to the greatest extent possible.

We were truly happy with everything Aardwolf did for us, and do not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to book a safari. Thank you!!
