The three group ranches (Lualenyi, Mramba, and Oza) joined together to form the sanctuary as a way to use the natural resources on their land.

    "Ich würde immer wieder Oranje Safari buchen (wir hatten Tsavo east 2 Tage gebucht)! Harry ist super nett und geht auf jeden einzelnen Wunsch ein. Frank, der uns bei der Safari begleitet hat und Alex unser Fahrer haben geduldig auf jede Frage geantwortet (übrigens auf Deutsch, da meine Mutter kein Englisch versteht), und waren super lieb und witzig. Kurzfristig bin ich sehr Krank geworden und musste leider genau da, als wir die Safari gehabt hätten in Krankenhaus (Diani Beach Hospital). Harry kam noch am selben Abend ins Krankenhaus und hat mich besucht. Es war überhaupt kein Problem die Safari um ein paar Tage zu verschieben. Vielen lieben Dank an das Oranje Team für diese Unvergesslichen Momente!"

    "Oranje Safari lässt von der Organisation bis zur Durchführung keine Wünsche offen! Auf Fragen im Vorfeld wurde super schnell geantwortet und vor der Safari gab es noch eine Einweisung mit genaueren Details zum Verlauf. Die Safari selbst war traumhaft und wir hatten sehr viel Spaß mit unserem Fahrer, welcher uns sehr verantwortungsbewusst und sicher durch die Nationalparks gefahren hat und dabei immer Augen und Ohren offen hatte damit wir so viel wie möglich Tiere sehen können. Man kann Oranje Safari nur weiterempfehlen. Preis / Leistung ist einfach Top! Immer und immer wieder!"
