I visited in July 2015
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, after a few days, we decided to make a change to our itinerary to reduce travel time in the safari van, and Otieno immediately made the changes. We traveled with our family of four (Parents and two teen sons), and the lodge accommodations, vans, and guides suited our family's needs well. Patrick, our guide in Kenya, was flexible and always willing to help, but also gave us great advice. Outstanding service and staff.
One suggestion for safaris of 2 weeks or less--if you are traveling long distances, fly when possible so you can spend more time at the parks and less time traveling. We are happy we drove for a few days because it gave us a better sense of the countries, but would incorporate more flights the next time.
We wanted to use a local company to book a trip. Our main point of contact was Mr Otieno from KWSS who was always quick and prompt on replies.I explained what we wanted on our trip and he provided everything .Their price quote is reasonable and fair.
We booked a 8 Day Safari finally which covered masai mara,Amboseli,Lake nakuru,Bogoria and lake naivasha. We ha...

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.
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, ...
Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris pricings are very affordable and we have a very good experience with them. All the arrangements were very good and the guides were very friendly. I want to thanks Mr. Otieno for organizing our dream beach vacation. I would love to repeat an experience with KWSS and recommend KWSS to my friends.
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.
