I took safari with Right Choice 3 times as minimim in Kenya and at one in Tanzania. The first one was 2013 and we travel with my friend in group budget safari to Nakuru and Masai Mara. The second time was with my parent (65 years old), it was private safari to Mara with guide Tom in 2014. With guide Jacob we visited Nairobi National park and Giraffe center in Nairobi with my friend from Russia. Each safari was perfect and well organised. George, the owner was always very helpful to reply for my endless questions. Guides did all their best looking for animals. I saw "Big five" in each my visit to Masai Mara!
Safari in Tanzania also was perfect.. Right Choice has the right partner in Tanzania and to do safari in both country with this safari company is really good choice.

Right from the moment we stepped out of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, we could feel that we had made the right choice. We were received by Mr Paul our driver cum guide, who accompanied us throughout the tour of 6 days. He was very knowledgeable and an adept driver. Moreover, we trusted him like he was another family member.
Our special thanks to Mr George who made our dream safari come true.
The trip was excellent. A few things we learnt during the trip, which could make future trips even better are as follows :
1) Vehicle should have the facilities to charge phones and cold box for water bottles.
2) Tourists are advised to carry dust masks as the unpaved roads are very dusty and
can lead to development of allergies.
3) Carry Cash in Dollars to pay park fee at Masai Maara and Lake Naivasha.
Only card payment is accepted in Lake Nakuru.
4) We highly recommend Eagle Palace Hotel in Nakuru, Keekorok Lodge in Masai
Maara and BWP Meridien in Nairobi.

I had a great four days safari trip with the Right Choice Tours & Safaris , visiting Maasai Mara and Nakuru Lake. It was a wonderful lifetime experience. The trip was all organized on line from home.The both guides(Bernard and Wanjau) were very knowledgeable with the various animals, shearing with us valuable information about the parks, the country and the people .Visiting a Maasai village was realy very interesting. I would gladly recommend the Right Choice Tours & Safaris, as your tour operator for your next safari. Would be o good choice.
Just got back from a six days safari trip with the right choice company and Ken, our guide. It was a once in a lifetime experience.
The trip was all organized on line from the states and everything was paid in advance. Needless to say I had my concerns when scheduling it online. The experience was beyond my hopes. Ken greeted us at the airport as planned and since that moment and until dropping us back to the airport, he did everything in his power to make this trip successful. His driving skills were found to be very helpful when it came to the rough safari roads. He was very knowledgeable with the various animals, all our questions were answered and he was happy to share with us information about the parks, the country and the Kenyan people which was very enlightening and added a lot to the experience. Would highly recommend him as your guide.
My experience corresponding with George via E mails was exactly as described here before. He was very accommodating and very quick to respond. I was debating whether to pay everything in advance and was happy I did so. It is very unsafe carrying a large amount of cash and I found George and his company to be very reliable.
Overall a wonderful experience and a great trip!
Writing this review will never do justice to the experience we had on this trip. I could write an entire book on the trip and still not get in the sense of how wonderful it was. The beauty of Africa cannot be captured in words or pictures, it must be experienced in person.
My daughter (age 21) and I went on a 16 day Safari using Right Choice Safaris. This was our first time in Africa, and we both had the time of our lives! Below is the highlight itinerary sent to us by George:
01 night in Nairobi on arrival. Good for those arriving after mid day.
02 nights in Amboseli
01 night at the Lake Nakuru national park- Kenya
03 nights at the Masai Mara game reserve- Kenya. Migration at best
02 nights at the Serengeti game reserve -Tanzania
01 night at the Ngorongoro crater -Tanzania
01 night at Tarangire national park- Tanzania
04 nights in Zanzibar, Blue bay beach resort"
The Safari was planned by the organization and we followed all of their recommendations and did not do any "customization" of our own. We had a private safari for the two of us which gave us the freedom to go at our own pace. Our guide in Kenya was Jacob and in Tanzania, Fadhil. I believe Right Choice Safaris handles the Kenya part and partners with KiliSlopes in Tanzania for the Tanzania part.
Every place we stayed at was absolutely wonderful. The safari had a combination of tents and lodges to give us a taste of both kinds of experiences, and we loved both.
George was always available, answered all our questions, and was in touch throughout the trip for getting our feedback. My sister and her husband are going next year and they are going to contact George to set it up for them because we had such a positive experience with him.
Jacob and Fadhil were both amazing. I do hope that when we go back, and we most definitely want to go back, that we will get to work with Jacob and Fadhil again. They were both SUPER knowledgeable, both friendly and fun, and both wanted to teach us about the animals, their behaviors, and their roles in the larger ecosystem.
Everything was amazing. Lodging, food, service, and of course, the most important part, nature and game viewing.
For game viewing, make sure you take binoculars. Also, take the best cameras you have and ample storage. We took over 5000 pictures!! Expect to be in a car for 8-12 hours a day in order to get maximum viewing experience. It sounds like a lot, but when you're being driven through some of the most beautiful lands in the world, and seeing animals up close, it all flies by so fast.
It's hard to pick a favorite spot for us. Each park/reserve had its own unique ecosystem and we are glad we went to all of them. If you HAVE to skip one of the destinations due to lack of time, I recommend skipping Zanzibar only because it took us a long time to get there (drive/fly/delayed flights, etc.). If we absolutely had to recommend ONE place to see for first time travelers, then we'd recommend the Masai Mara/Serengeti parks which are really an extension of each other, are the spot for the migration, and a must see for anyone who ever goes on a safari.
Vaccinations: Make sure you see a travel doctor and get the correct vaccinations. Furthermore TAKE YOUR VACCINATION CARDS WITH YOU. Without proper proof of vaccinations, they will not let you into the country.
Health precautions: Do your research on how not to get sick there. Our travel doctor gave us an entire packet which we reviewed thoroughly. If you do, you won't get sick there and will be able to enjoy your trip fully.
Tips: Get your cash and exchange it to the correct currency before you travel. Finding ATMs in the country was not an easy task, and NO ONE HAS ENOUGH CHANGE there for you! Get your money before you go and have it broken down into small change. The staff everywhere expects to be tipped, and you need tons of change. Tip graciously! They sure deserve it.

when we were looking for a company to do our trip we came across right choice, i had one of the best prices. Dont get me wrong here, the price is the best but so is the service!
You dont receive what you paid for, you receive much more... the trip was amazing, we had a great time.
If possible request the guides we had Patrick in kenya and Lazarus in tanzania, they made the trip much more special.
i sure would do another trip with this company!

We just got back from our 16-day luxury safari and Zanzibar retreat. The four of us did an extensive research to accommodate our needs, and Right Choice Tours & Safaris delivered! We contacted George and from there on it was a smooth selling always updating us and upgrading us even better hotels. Excellent customer service. Our driver in Kenya, Jacob, was amazing. We had the opportunity to see be Big 5 into 2 hours' safari with him and more animals than our eyes expected to see. Jacob is very patient and he knows exactly when the animals move and even when all the other cars leave we always end up withing a bit longer and had amazing rewards! The transit between Kenya and Tanzania was very easy, thank you to Jacob. In Kenya, we met our new driver Lazaros. We really enjoyed Kenya as well and all the beautiful national parks we visited. Lazaros is very knowledgeable in the history and plans. He showed us a different side of Africa; big migration, smaller animals were where you really have to look for. Zanzibar was like a postcard! Thank you for all Right Choice Tours & Safaris team.

Right Choice Tours & Safaris created an unforgettable safari experience for our family at an incredibly reasonable price and with some of the best customer service, we have ever experienced. George and his team really work to make every customer feel like they sole focus of the company, and were very responsive to questions we had, weeks before we ever even arrived in Nairobi. They delivered flawlessly on an itinerary to Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara. We also wanted to highlight the amazing service of our safari guide, Ken. Ken was extremely knowledgeable of the diverse wildlife we saw in the parks, and also at tracking down some of the toughest animals to spot (such as the leopard). He was very accommodating of itinerary changes we requested and clearly has built very strong relationships with other safari guides and rangers in the parks in order to quickly get information on where animals are and when. Overall, I highly recommend Right Choice Tours & Safaris, as well as their tour guide Ken, to any international travelers looking for a great safari experience at a reasonable price!

What can I say but excellent safari! I had several questions and George answered them right away. Our guide Peter was amazing he was very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw. He positioned us for the best pictures you could image. He let us look as long as we wanted and did his best to fulfill our requests during the safari. We were able to see the Big Five in our first 3 days of a 4-day safari. The food was superb out in the bush camp. Allen, the chef is a true master of the grill for all meals. The taste and seasoning were awesome, he made sure we were full every meal. The accommodation was more than I expected out of a tent camp. My wife who hates camping in a tent thought the accommodations was very good. I would highly recommend booking with Right Choice Tours & Safaris for your Kenya safari. I will definitely come back for another safari during the great migration and book again with Right Choice Tours & Safaris. Thank you for an amazing time.

The bottom line is Right Choice Tours & Safaris is an excellent value for the money. Every aspect of this trip is what we hoped and desired would happen. George was extremely responsive and knowledgeable. The drivers and guides were personable and knew their way around. Each guide had their own personality and Opany was exceptional. The drivers and guides were always timely and friendly. All of the lodges were semi luxurious and the food was plentiful great. We visited 8 game parks; each was different and exciting in their own way. The variety and amount of animals were astounding. Photographic opportunities are great. Thanks to the guides, we were able to learn about the animals and see things not normally seen. The guides were more than responsive to customer needs. We extended our trip and went to Uganda. We sailed on the Nile River. We saw the snows of Kilimanjaro. We stood on the equator. There was a mixup at the end but George made everything okay. We absolutely would recommend Right Choice Tours & Safaris to everyone wanting a great East African experience. Thank you, George, for setting up an unforgettable trip.
