Voila!

Written on: May 20, 2017   |   I visited in April 2017 We had a 12 day safari booked through Across The Wild Tours & Safaris between 24th March - 4th Apr, and we could not be more grateful how everything turned out so perfect! I emailed many companies at the beginning, both local Kenyan companies and Canada companies, and from the very first email I knew I wanted to work with Across The Wild Tours. Not only did they respond to my emails within a very short time, but also provided me with more information and option itineraries than i could have expected, along with beautiful photos of hotels and rooms and their prices very fairing. I was so impressed!

Over the next few months, we received quick, courteous, and helpful responses to every email we sent. we planned an itinerary that allowed us to maximize our time without rushing. Fina assisted us in making good choices for our lodging which was split between tented camps and lodges.

Our safari covered 7 day wildlife safari, plus 4 nights beach holiday in Mombasa at the end. The vacation was fantastic. We managed to see not only the “Big Five” but lots of wildlife and small five as well. Our driver guide, was Joseph, very understanding. He is very knowledgeable not only of the wildlife, but also of Kenyan history and culture, current politics and news. He always seemed to have a sense of where the animals were hiding and then set our van in the best location to view.

The places we visited were Samburu National Reserve where we stayed at Samburu Sopa Lodge, Aberdares National Park and we stayed at Ark Lodge very nice tree Lodge, Lake Nakuru National Park, we stayed at Flaming Hill Tented Camp, Maasai Mara National Reserve stayed at Sentrim Tented Camp, and lastly Mombasa we stayed at Voyager Beach Resort. A lot for just few days, but we didn’t rush in any area.

Across The Wild Tours & safaris did a great job putting our trip together, and our guide, Joseph did a wonderful job making it all happen even unexpected. We highly recommend them to everyone and we have already recommended them to friends and family.

I went to Tanzania for a 3-day safari with Across the Wild Tours. It was the best vacation I've ever been on. We did a more "rustic" version - camped out in tents in the middle of the Serengeti! We were on a budget but it was still such an incredible experience (it's hard to go wrong with such beauty and awesome wildlife all around you), but the coordination and pr... read more

Sorry to write our review so late after such an amazing tour of a life time. My family and I (a group of 12 persons) traveled to Kenya for our holiday last year and we were so happy that we picked the best tour operator Across The Wild Tours and Safaris to make our trip memorable. We visited (Nairobi National Park, Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria & Amboseli... read more

We had a wonderful time! I cannot say enough good things about both Charles (our guide), and Rama (our chef). They went above and beyond ensuring we had an amazing experience. There is no way we could have imagined we would see so much in such a short period of time. I'm confident these memories will remain with us for life. We got pictures though, just in case... ... read more

We have just settled from an amazing Kenya & Tanzania safari experience that happened early this year. This was our first trip to Africa as well and so we did not know what to expect at all. We were a group of 12 adults under 50. After researching a lot we finally spoke with a friend who had done a safari a couple of months ago with Across The Wild Tours & safaris,... read more

My 2 friends and I went on a 7 day safari with Across The Wild Tours & Safaris and everything was fantastic. I worked with Aloise for several weeks by email to plan the trip since it was a last minute booking - he was very responsive and helpful. It made it easier for us to wire a huge sum of money halfway across the globe! Our guide was Simon and he was absolutely... read more
