"For a first timer going on an African Safari the number of safari tour companies to choose from can be intimidating and we are glad that we that chose KET for this. We chose KET as they had good feedback on TA as well as reasonable rates. They were extremely professional to deal with, with prompt email responses to several of our questions. We chose the land cruiser option for our 5 day/4 nights safari, Our guide, was extremely professional and experienced. They picked us up from Jomo Kenyatta International and dropped us off on time for our flight as well. We stayed at Ol Tukai, Sopa and Sarova game Lodges during this period, which were all excellent choices. During our entire safari period we got to see all the big five in addition to countless other wildlife and extremely scenic vistas. The highlight of our experience was a rhino that came out of the bush in the Mara and crossed right in front of our land-cruiser. We were the only vehicle in the area when this happened, and after speaking with local staff at the game camp later found that this was extremely rare since the rhino population is very sparse (Only about 20 or so rhinos in the entire Mara)and also they are extremely shy creatures. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have seen all the big 5 on our very first African safari. Would highly recommend ket for your safari experience. "

"My friend and I had the most wonderful 3 day Maasai Mara tour from Nairobi. Our driver, Richard, was THE BEST! So friendly and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see - cheetah cubs, a rare leopard, lots of baby animals - and was such a trooper for putting up with us for such long drives! We travelled as two females but knew we were always safe and in good hands with Richard! The accommodation was very nice - lovely staff, comfy rooms, and full bellies. "
"Only regret is that we didn't think to bring a good camera lens- would have come in handy for some of the far off animals and we had serious FOMO about all the legit cameras everyone around us had. Other pointer is to bring pens to give away at the rest stops on the way in. We had no idea but all the little shop keepers asked us for pens since they are useful in their shop and harder to come by. We gave them every one we had but wish we brought more! A very small request from those who need so much! "
"Overall, fantastic tour and I'd strongly recommend to anyone looking for adventure and an unforgettable experience!"

"Paul of Ketsafaris was easy to work with. Of all the top safari tour operators I got in touch with for my queries, Paul was the quickest to reply and was the only one who suggested changes to the itinerary I proposed. The others merely gave me a price quote."
"The service was efficient. The choice of lodges and hotels was great."
"My friends and I are extremely grateful for the patience of our drivers and guides, Francis in Kenya and Saba in Tanzania. They managed our preferences and accommodated the adjustments we wanted really well. Francis was like an excited father to us showing us the animals. Saba did his best notwithstanding the circumstances (darkness and fog) to get us to the airport in time and remained composed even in stressful situation."
"I strongly recommend Ketsafaris."

"Booking with Ket was great. They gave us a fantastic deal and we're very good to communicate with. "

"We took 4 day family Safari starting off from Mombasa in late July 2016. Paul organised for everything from picking us at the airport to the hotel. He was quick to respond on email and quite flexible on changes (we delayed our trip by a week at no extra cost). "
"Our safari guide (aptly nicknamed Niki Lauder but not for speed!) was very experienced and enjoyed his job. He was ever punctual and had information on every animal or bird. We managed to see pretty much every animal except the rhino. We started off from Tsavo East then Amboseli and finally Tsavo West. "
"The down side was the Land Cruiser, it was old and without radio. The parks are in remote places and a radio comes in handy for sharing info about location of animals and in case of emergency, fortunately we didn't quite need it. Dust seemed to 'germinate' from the rear door on our drive from Ol Tukai (Amboseli) to Kilaguni (Tsavo west). "
"But otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our safari and would recommend KETS to anyone looking for a memorable safari experience."
