Delightful, enriching, educaltional and fun experience

We have used Cape Dog Safaris twice and both opportunites have surpased our expectations. Michael Massonda is an excellent safari guide and works very hard to satisfy all his clients needs and wishes. Excellent service at a reasonable price. We hope we can return soon to Africa and have another wonderful experience with Cape Dog Safaris.

Excellente organization with very professional and friendly guides

I have gone to two safaris with Cape Dog Safaris, on the first one I went with my wife and another couple. On this first safari we went to several parks and to Central Serengueti, we had a great time, lot of action, the guide was very profesional and friendly, the hotels very nice with excellent service. Both couples had such a good experience that both decided to go back a year later with the rest of the family. In our case we went with our son and daughter, this time we went mainly to North Serengueti, we had the opportunity to see the river crossing, the big five, on this second safari we had another guide from Cape Dog, he was as profesional and friendly as the one we had on our first safari.

On the second safari we had an airplane maintenance problem and lost the connection, arriving one day late to Tanzania, we had god communication with Cape Dog Safari and they helped us to organize things at our arrival in order to get to the camp with no delay.

Right now we are planning to do our third safari at South Serengueti, and for sure we will do it again with Cape Dog Safari.

Fantastic Guides make a fun Safari

I recently went on a safari with Masoko Tours in January 2016. I highly recommend this company if you are looking for an awesome safari. Maka operates these tours and he really treats you with top notch service. They have excellent guides that know how to put you right on top of the animals. We had Roy as our guide and he was outstanding. He was knowledgeable and very funny. Roy made sure that we had a great time. I will be using Masoko tours for any future safaris.

A memorable Safari

My wife and I booked the 3-day Panorama Safari which included Tsavo East and West. Steve delivered exactly what we wanted at the price agreed upon and we had a great Safari experience. We particularly enjoyed the small intimate lodges that Paul arranged for us. Particularly memorable was the Rhino Valley Lodge in Tsavo West. This lodge has great rooms, views of the water hole and the food was excellent. The staff were also very friendly. These lodges were much superior to the large impersonal ones we stayed in during our Tanzania Safari. Our driver and guide Peter Kimani was also excellent. We saw lot of animals in both parks although Tsavo east was probably a bit better. We unfortunately did not see any Rhinos but that did not detract from the overall experience.

In the future we are going to arrange a safari to Maasai Mara and when that time comes I will be contacting Steve to handle the arrangements.

It Started in Africa delieverd the best service and we had the best trip ever!

From the first contact til the last I've been amazed by It Started in Africa service. They've always answer fast and really did everything they could to make it til our best trip ever.

We did a five day safari (Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater) and we can't describe with words how fantastic it was. We had a really good guide, Erisdo and a really good chef who made us good food during the safari. Over all every employee we met was extremely helpful and friendly.

We really recommend to book the safari with It Started in Africa. You'll not be disappointed!!

African adventure

Falcoln Safaris were extremely helpful in booking Chobe Safari lodge and very flexible with the tour arrangements. The transfer drivers were really wonderful: professional, friendly, informative and super helpful. We changed our mind about a tour and our guide was really accommodating and felxible. We would definitely recommend Falcoln Safaris and the Walking with Lions Tour.

Better than expected

Tour was seemless (and the cheapest after a few quotes).
I had a 4 day stopover in Kenya after travelling Ethiopia.

I was given several different options for my time, but chose a fairly standard 4 day Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru. I chose a mid-range shared tour, but given the time of year we ended up being the only ones on the safari.

The lodges were much better than expected, and we saw all the wildlife we hoped:
Mara Sopa lodge - on a hill at the entrance to the park where a lot of wildlife congregates. The rooms are large and lovely with separate cabin overlooking the gardens. Nice pool and view, bar and restaurant. Food was all buffet and of a good standard quality.
Lake Nakuru lodge - Hilltop position overlooking the lake and the park. This is a large lodge (with a great pool/bar area). Room were more standard hotel, with a balcony which was nice to sit on and watch zebra and buffalo graze in front. The food was a la carte and of good quality.

The driver (Cyrus) was also great, spoke great English and always wanted to be first in the park in the morning to get maximum wildlife viewing.

Id recommended the company.

Kenyan travel company with know how

I shopped around for tour packages for a group of eight with a number of tour companies. We found Aslan to be most knowledgable about current conditions of hotels, parks, etc. To top this off, Aslan also offered us the most competitive rates on lodging and transportation (a good 15% cheaper than then next cheapest quote for the same itinerary). Aslan actively negotiated with the lodges and managed to get our young children free stays at a number of the lodges. They also provided us with a very warm, knowledgeable, and overall very apt driver with a good 4x4 vehicle. Request Shadrack as your guide and driver if booking through Aslan.

We will undoubtedly use Aslan Travels for all future travel plans in Kenya!

There is no way we can do our trip justice in one sentence.

Words can not begin to describe the safari eTrip Africa provided for my family and me. From the initial contact 10 months prior to our departure date, to the selecting of the accommodations, to picking daily activities, and through the actual tour, eTrip Africa could not have been more patient and accommodating.

Our initial contact with eTrip Africa was with Aurelie. Aurelie made sure we understood everything from day 1. From help with accommodations (we ended up with a mixture of tented camps, luxury tented camps, and lodges), medical requirements, travel insurance (we ended up using Worldwide Travel Group), outfitting (we got outfitted by Tent and Trails in NYC), and mundane questions (like what type of electrical outlets are in Africa, is there wi-fi, etc), Aurelie was always there to assist us.

Our arrival in Kilimanjaro was our first exposure to Ben from eTrip Africa. He helped us load up our car (our car would become our mobile home away from home for the next 8 days), introduced us to our driver Yusuph (more about him later) and explained our itinerary to us on our drive to the African Tulip (a quaint boutique hotel in Arusha).

After a welcome night sleep and a filling breakfast, we headed out on our safari. Yusuph provided us with insight into the African culture and the history of the area. I can honestly say that without Yusuph our trip would not have been half as enjoyable. He is a wonderful tour guide (not to mention being unbelievable behind the wheel of our Toyota Land Cruiser)! My daughter recently got into photography and Yusuph never lost his patience while she waited for the "perfect shot" or "just the right angle". As a result, we have to wade through almost 11,000 pictures (that's right, 11,000 pictures in 8 days)!

Coming from a family of travelers, this African Safari was up against some pretty stiff competition. It was up against trips to Europe, Japan, Costa Rica, Mexico, Israel, and various Caribbean Islands. I can honestly say that my son and daughter have both proclaimed this trip as "the best trip of my life" and my wife is still saying she can't believe she was in Africa.

Our only regret is not being able to contact Yusuph to thank him again for making this trip truly a once in a lifetime experience.
