Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris was an A+ Amazing Experience
Written on: April 12, 2015
I visited in April 2015
Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris (KWSS) was a once in a lifetime experience.
While there are other high-end safari options out there, I felt that KWSS was the best bang-for-your-buck option out there. While going through the booking process, Mr. Otieno (the manager), was extremely quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.
After being reassured of the itinerary for our 3-day Masai Mara safari, we went ahead and placed our deposit a few weeks before we were scheduled to be in Kenya.
Once we arrived in Nairobi from our long flight from the USA, we were picked up by KWSS - Clements (driver) and Sam (cook) - at our Bed and Breakfast. From there, we departed on the 6 hour journey to Masai Mara. Along the way, we stopped at various shops and a restaurant to grab souvenirs, food, and drinks. Clements and Sam knew all the answers to our questions as well.
Arriving at our camp before dinner, we had a short game drive in Masai Mara. Clements was quick to radio other drivers (might have been 7 other drivers) to see where all the animals were. He eventually caught wind of a lion and lioness together, so we headed there and saw these majestic animals.
While we were on the drive, Sam was busy at camp cooking up a delicious dinner meal. The dinner meals typically consisted of beef, a vegetable, bread, water, coffee and tea. While breakfast was usually a spanish omelet, juice, potatoes, coffee and tea. Sam’s cooking is amazing and kept us well nourished throughout the safari.
The following days consisted of more game drives where we went all over Masai Mara, close to the Tanzania border, the Mara River, and much more. All while passing thousands of zebras and wildebeests, buffalos, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, and more. There were times when I caught myself smiling from how amazing this experience was.
Book with the confidence knowing that you will have an amazing time. I cannot recommend Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris enough.
This being the second trip under KWSS all I can say is thanks to Mr Oteino who made everything possible for me and my family. This time we decided to go to Masai Mara and Amboseli. The trip was well organized and the price was reasonable and affordable. Thanks to the driver Mr Daudi for making us experience the best and explained every question we asked regarding t...

Our group booked 12 day tour with KWSS of Otieno Lysaniash (Otieno) in Aug 2016. During the discussion for booking via email, Otieno seems to be a very professional businessman. He replies email very fast and in a very good manner. We at that time were so happy thought that we would have a very unforgettable trip in Kenya. We paid 50% deposit as requested by him.
I found KWSS (Kenya Walking Survivors Safari) online while planning our first trip to Kenya. Otieno, the owner of the company, was attentive and helpful throughout our planning process and always responded to my questions in a timely manner. Once we arrived in Nairobi, we continued to received this high level of attention from Otieno and our driver/guide. In fact, ...
My girlfriend and I booked our trip with Kenya Walking Safaris. They managed our trip and they were so quick to respond to us,even when we were in the middle of the trip.
They showed professionalism when handling us. I would recommend this company to anyone planning for a safari.
We had been longing to visit Uganda for the gorilla trekking for quit sometime. We booked our trip with Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris for we read positive feedback from their past clients. We really had an easy and good time in Africa. We are now back in our country but still in future we will book with same guys, for they are the best ….
I was very pleased with the overall service provided by Mr. Otieno and his staff Peter and Sam. The pickup from the hotel and transfer to the airport were perfectly on time, quality of food was excellent (they even managed to offer vegetarian meals throughout the trip on my request!) and the game drives themselves, although short due to the limited amount of time, ...
