    "We had a great holiday in Kenya and we enjoyed this great trip. John organized 6 days to Amboseli National Park, Maasai Mara, and Nakuru National Park. The tour was well-organized and our driver, Dixion, was very knowledgeable. The lodges they chose and the vehicle were very clean and comfortable."

    "I was working in Tanzania and found myself suddenly with four free days. I contacted African Paradise Safaris with 2 days' notice and little idea of what I wanted. They accomplished the near-impossible, putting together an itinerary, gathering permits, and tweaking the details to my liking up to the last minute, including late-night discussions via WhatsApp. I was able to cover Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and Ngorongoro with a superb, knowledgeable, and experienced guide. I can't believe how well they took my vague blueprint and created a world-class experience for me."

    "We did the 6 days safari (Maasai Mara, Nakuru, and Amboseli) and in one word - wow! We had so much fun. John, the agent, was available for every question via WhatsApp and mail and gave a very reasonable price for the amazing 6 days. But above all, we want to say many thanks to Patrick, our guide. He is knowledgeable, patient, a great driver and wildlife spotter, and just a great guy! Thank you very much."
