    "This was our first time in Africa. My boyfriend and I wanted to choose the right safari company to make the most of our 7 days in Kenya. I chose Khanga Safari and I can only say that we had an amazing trip. We chose the 7 days safari trip and had the most amazing time, thanks to Khanga Safari teams. From before the trip, Lawrence and Bernard were fully available and responsive within a few hours (they dedicated WhatsApp number for "live" questions). During the trip, everything was really well-organized with no hiccups along the way. Christopher, our driver, was amazing. He knew so much about the wildlife and had incredible eyes spotting all incredible animals. Chris taught us a lot about the animals there and he also took tons of pictures of us (great photos, by the way, thanks for the souvenirs!). Also, the trip is done as a private tour so we had the van to ourselves with my boyfriend and I can only recommend doing so as this will make your experience so much more exclusive and fully aligned with your own wishes. In our trip, we got to see the Big 5 and so much more! The incredible diversity of animals, jaw-dropping landscapes, very good accommodation & food. I can only recommend Khanga: you will have the most amazing time! "

    "Khanga Safaris accommodated our short notice private safari request with a prompt initial response and good communication prior to arrival. Our driver / guide was excellent, masterfully (and safely) handling some very challenging / remote roads and finding us more than enough wildlife and local experiences (very close up!) to last a lifetime (everything except for the elusive leopard) during the 6 day trip. Accommodations were generally of a higher standard than we expected for a budget safari. No hesitation in recommending Khanga Safari to others looking to experience Kenya on a private safari. Also suggest factoring in some R&R time (2-3 days) at the conclusion of your Safari in a Mombasa resort, this is a great way to finish off your trip."

    "I recommend this company to anyone planning a safari tour. You guys made my labor day unforgettable. What an amazing experience. I have been to parks several times with my fiance but your package of group tours rekindled my local tourism spirits. The extra surprise activities that enhanced our team buildings just won my heart. Importantly, the real-time communications you guys have made the whole planning process easy. My questions were responded quickly (thanks to your customer care). We have such activities every other year and I will pick on you guys any other time, love the energetic young personnel. "
