What an excellent experience from booking a personalised safari from the comfort of my own home to being on the safari. Farid help us plan the safari so we could fit the elephant orphanage into the game drives. (Please be aware you have to foster a elephant and have a written letter giving you permission to visit the orphange before you can see the babies being fed and have photo taken with them. At £35 for the year, the experience you get is well worth it.) Our driver (Peter) arrived at our hotel on time and promptly got us on our way. He was very knowledgable and could answer all our questions. He was also very helpful and friendly. The lodges which we visited our were very clean and pleasant. They all had great views with waterholes where animals visited. The staff were all freindly and the food and drink was good. I can recommend F.King Tours very highly and suggest you drop Farid a mail to get a quote. If you have a particular place animal of interest he will work out a tour to accommodate.

Unreal safari! Our guide (Haisim) was excellent; thorough knowledge of various wildlife species, local cultures, and all around friendly and social guy! He knew the kind of things we were looking for; went out of his way to try and find them (successful). We saw rhino, elephant, cheetah, lions, leopard, buffalo, etc. Could not recommend more highly; will definitely use their services again.
I had been to the Masai Mara before, but not Tsavo East or West. I didn't know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised - we saw all the main animals on the first day - elephants, giraffes, hippos, lions, zebras, etc, etc. King Tours were very professional, the organiser was very friendly and come to our hotel beforehand to organise it all. The driver was extremely experienced and friendly. The lodges we stayed in were out of this world. I have visited over 50 countries in the world and this was one of the most incredible places I have ever stayed! We took our 3-year old daughter and she LOVED it!!!!! She still talks about it all the time. Overall highly recommended - do it!!!!!
I send my request for an individual three day safari to Farid via his website and got a prompt answer. The safari was perfectly organized and fitted our need super. Also dont worry to pay in advance - Farid is very trustworthy. We were picked up by our driver Juma directly from the airport, from where we headed to Tsavo East. The jeep was very compf; even when the streets make it hard not to get shaked through. Juma was the perfect guide for us; he spotted all animals (except rhinos :() very well, read the trace of the animals and had an overall good sense of were to go. He speaks a very good german and was super nice all the time. We saw lions, elephants, cheetahs, and all kind of zebras & gazelles. The lodges were great with a stunning view on the water hole directly from the balcony. All in all this was one of the best trips I did so far. And for me it is the better choice to book with a local agent as Farid than with the big companies. Highly, highly recommended. When we will come back to Kenya we will 100% book with him again!
We were recommended by friends for a 9 day safari around Kenya with F King Tours. Farid worked with us to prepare a personalised itinerary that included a broad range of sites and landscapes all over Kenya, staying in beautiful tented and cabin accommodation within our budget. The safari experience was amazing. The beautiful scenery, savannahs and sunsets. Animals in their natural environment including the big 5 and much much more. Hashim our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas, people, history and off course the animals. He always did his best to find what we were looking for and allowed us to witness such great spectacles as cheetahs and lions eating their prey, leopards lazing around in trees, families of elephants and giraffes walking across the roads, hoards of wilderbeast and buffalo grazing in the fields - just to name a few. The local people were happy to share their stories and were all very accommodating. The package was all inclusive so we got to enjoy plenty of good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with something to fit all tastes. Overall a magical experience and a highly recommended tour provider for anyone wishing to do a safari.
