I booked this safari after doing a lot of research, using the same premise: 3 day, 4 night safari. Paul Mwendwa at KET was very responsive in booking from the US. This by far was not the most expensive or the cheapest. The value was priceless. I was greeted promptly at my hotel in Nairobi by Lucky, my driver. He had to be the happiest person I've ever met. We were due to have 3 people on this tour, which was the minimum, but 2 cancelled, but he made sure that I still was able to have the tour though I was the only passenger. He grew up in the bush and it was evident in the information and expertise he provided. The first day was at Lion Hill Lodge at Lake Nakuru. The 2nd and 3rd day was at the Masa Lodge in Maasai Mara. My objective was to get to see The Big 5, though most tours I have found don't quite meet that objective, because they are the hardest to find. Lucky was very knowledgeable about his surrounding and after 3 days we found all 5. He was very good at not talking when we came across animals, because he felt one needed to have a visual experience, not just somebody that sat at the drivers seat and talked about animal history. If I asked a question he would answer. We also visited a Maasai indigenous family village.

At the end of the tour, he gave me a beautifully crafted hand-made beaded belt with my name and flags of US and Kenya. Seems he estimated my waist size our first day and he must have made it at night after our day was finished. I was deliver safely back to my hotel and given a big bear hug by this guy. I could talk for hours about my trip but it would spoil it for the next visitor. Want customer service at a good price? KET is your choice for a safari.

“Bellissima esperienza”

Con Ket ci siamo trovati davvero bene, lodges molto belli e la nostra guida, Jackson, uomo concreto e di poche parole, è stata bravissima, abbiamo visto i big five, anche da vicino. L'unica cosa che ti dico è che se alloggiate nel Masai Mara potreste essere messi nel Sopa Lodge, che è sicuramente bello, ma non bellissimo come gli altri in cui siamo stati e come l'alternativa che ci aveva posto nel Masai Mara, il Sentrium Luxury tents (il preventivo non cambiava). Siamo stati asamburu, Sweetwaters, Nakuru, naivasha, Masai Mara. Altra cosa che mi sento di dirti: la visita al villaggio Masai a mio parere è evitabile, trattasi di una cosa molto commerciale, non vale il prezzo che costa (circa 40 dollari a testa).

Lo consiglio.

“Perfekt, alles super geklappt”

Wir haben lange gesucht um eine vernünftigen Safariveranstalter zu finden. Da wir schon mal vor 7 Jahren in Kenia waren (TSVASO, Ambuseli, Nairobi, Masai Mara) wollten wir dieses Mal eine etwas andere Route buchen. Auch war es sehr schwer (da wir mit 3 Personen reisten) einen guten Preis für das Einzelzimmer zu bekommen (Neckermann angeblich ausgebucht – es gab aber noch 3 Doppelzimmer, TUI 700 € Aufpreis für das EZ und Rundreise sollte 2500 € p.Pers im DZ kosten). Gefunden haben wir dann einen sehr guten Örtlichen Veranstalter KETS.

Zunächst waren wir etwas kritisch, auch vorab schon eine größere Anzahlung nach Kenia zu überweisen, aber auf Grund der sehr guten Bewertung bei haben wir es dann gewagt. Es hat alles perfekt geklappt, eine Toyota Bus für uns alleine (3 Personen und nicht wie Neckermann mit 6 Personen), Übernachtung in 4-5 Sterne Lodges wie beschrieben, der Eigentümer Paul hat uns am Flughafen empfangen und mit dem Fahrer dann zum Bus gebracht, alles perfekt organisiert und wunderschöne Unterkünfte. Die Woche Safari hat dann ab Nairobi pro Person 1.400 € gekostet (kein Einzelzimmerzuschlag). Wenn Ihr also auch eine Safari machen wollt, schaut auf jeden Fall mal bei KETS vorbei, Ihr werdet es nicht bereuen.

We became acquainted with Kenya Expresso Tours and Safaris (KETS) 1 ½ years ago when we began looking for a 1 day safari in Kenya. Originally, we were only going to spend 1 day in Kenya before flying to Rwanda to trek after the mountain gorillas.

As we researched KETS 1 day safaris, we became captivated with them. They offered a variety of 1 day safaris, their price was unbelievably great, and they had phenomenal reviews on TripAdvisor. Also, we would be the only people on their 1 day safaris with our own private driver/guide. It soon became apparent to us, that we wanted to spend more than 1 day on the traditional safari offered by KETS. We wanted to see so much more since we were flying all the way to Kenya from Chicago. We wanted to have the best possible chance to see the Big 5, and to see the Great Migration of the wildebeast, and their river crossing. So, we emailed Paul, the tour consultant of KETS, and asked his advice. Paul answered all of our emails within 24 hours, and was very helpful in helping us customize an itinerary.

Paul recommended visiting Kenya in September. This would give us the best chance of observing the Big 5 and the migration. He also recommended visiting Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, and the Masai Mara. Paul must be a phenomenal prognostigator!!! We followed his recommendations and were able to see the Big 5 and the wildebeasts crossing the Mara River during their migration.

We were awed, astounded, amazed, and just overwhelmed with the beauty and wildness of Amboseli, Masai Mara, and Lake Nakura. Our accomodations were spacious and restful, with satisfying meals, mostly served buffet style. Dishes included familiar foods as well as a few native dishes. All these appetizing dishes were offered in delicious large quantities. 

Due to the expertise planning of Kenya Expresso Tours and Safaris, we experienced the unparalleled wilderness of this fascinating country and had the privilege of being escorted by Philip, a very able driver and knowledgeable guide. My husband and I were the only visitors in the roomy Toyota Land Cruiser, and we found Philip to be a reliable driver and a bold, intelligent guide who often surprised us with unexpected sightings. He found the big 5 for us to observe and photograph during the first 26 hours of our visit, including both the black and white rhinos! Philip would position the vehicle as close as possible to the animals so that we had the best possible views and locations for our photos. He took us to an excellent vantage point overlooking the Mara River to watch the wildebeasts cross. After one hour of waiting unsuccessfully for the wildebeasts to cross, we left to explore other areas. Shortly, we came across a pride of lions, and stopped to observe and photograph them. After several minutes, the male started to court one of the females, and then started to mate with her right in front of us!! While watching the lions mate, Philip heard on his radio that the wildebeasts started to cross the river. So, he told us to buckle-up, turned the Land Cruiser around, and put the pedal to the metal. He got us to the river safely in time to watch the wildebeasts!!! All of our wishes for our Kenya safari had come to fruition. Unbelievable!!! We could not have wished for a better experience than the one we had with KETS, Paul, and Philip.

Paul even assisted us when the airlines lost our luggage, and he was instrumental in tracking down our bags when we had no luck in finding them.

So, book a wonderful never-to-be-forgotten journey with Kenya Express Tours and Safaris. You will find that for the money spent, this trip will be a significant value. Paul and Philip will be waiting for you.
