"In planning our trip to Africa Dec-Jan, 2012-13, Arlom Safaris was the only one to promptly give specific answers in very good English to our many questions. His services were priced well under other safari deals. We spent five days with Anderson Kenga, Arlom Safari owner. He was always on time, polite, willing to go out of his way to explain, and help us. We were the only safari vehicles that had been cleaned each night to assure our comfort the next day. He knew the national parks well and how to go off-road (trail) to search out hidden animals with excellent explanations of the animals, their habitat and habits. Other safari guides knew him well and we were even upgraded in our overnight accommodations just because of who he was, Anderson Kenga! We've highly praised and recommended him to others, and he told us then that we were his first American tourists; others had been European. We found him to be a fine family man with a charitable heart to help others in need, even helping fund a national school in his area. Hopefully he has had many more safaris and will continue to have many more because he was wonderful in every way! He's great and you will be thoroughly satisfied with Arlom Safaris!"

"We have just returned to England from an amazing two-week family holiday with our four daughters in Kenya. The highlight was a five-day safari with Arlom Safaris where we visited the national parks of Tsavo East, Tsavo West, and Amboselli. We stayed in different accommodation each night, all offering something very special, from tented villages, lodges on stilts to evening meals overlooking watering holes, and bush breakfasts. The owner, Anderson, is a lovely man who made us feel so welcome and comfortable throughout all our stay. On top of the Safari he was able to assist in advising the best hotels and arrange all our transportation; taking any worry out of the holiday. We would recommend Arlom Safaris to anyone wishing to travel to Kenya. We had originally booked with them in 2014 but had to cancel due to the UK foreign office 'no travel advice'. Anderson was amazing and returned our deposit; a truly genuine person who we trust completely. We would like to thank him for a wonderful time and unforgettable holiday in his beautiful country."
