I visited in February 2015
Once again we booked through Soin and again we had a fantastic safari experience. Our trip started in Rwanda with 2 gorilla treks. Everything was taken care of for us, what made the trek more enjoyable was all of the people involved, including our guides, porters, trackers and guards (taking care of the gorillas, not us). But the best part was spending an hour each day with such special animals, what a privilege this was.
The rest of the trip was spent in Tanzania and we had very specific ideas on what we wanted to do and see and we were not disappointed, thanks to the tremendous dedication and patience of our guides Paul and Simon. We spent time at Lake Manyara, Nduta area and the Serengeti and they all offered very different experiences and I would recommend all of these areas. We saw about 900,000 wildebeest in one area, a sight that is just hard to take in, lions and cheetah on rocks and we shot some spectacular photos. We loved it so much we are heading back in April with our children.
Soin safaris clearly have a wealth of experience and local knowledge which shines through in every part of the process.
They have an excellent portfolio of camps and assisted in ensuring the right camp for our needs. The team at head office as well as Paul Kirui were on hand to answer any question with a timely response.
For anyone looking for an African based ...
Once again Soin Safaris delivered an excellent service throughout on our recent special group tour to the Maasai Mara. Paul, Sharon and the rest of the team are a delight to deal with and always on hand to assist with any questions and requests.
I would highly recommend. Thank you Paul and team
Gerald was our driver/guide and from the beginning. He knew the answer to every question we had, whether it had to do with gestation, type of animal, migratory or not, predator or prey, Gerald knew all of the answers. His knowledge and persistence were the reasons we were able to witness the leopard attack on the wildebeest as it happened. He knew where to find th...
I can trust Soin. Our pick-up person was very kind. And I did not have my guide Paul Kirui this time, but we had Dickson, who is very familiar with the big cats, instead. Room, meals, people, were great where we stayed. In very good guide, it is possible to take an in-depth look at my favorite leopard and lion, Dickson was a good time for 9 days.
Soin didn’t disappoint once again. We have booked safaris through Soin before and are never disappointed. Our sole purpose is for photography. Our first camp was Tortilis in Amboseli and we were very lucky to clearly see Mt Kilimanjaro every day, the camp was also great and the wildlife viewing was as expected. Next stop was the Mara, where we stayed at Mara Explo...
Soin Safaris arranged a safari for my friend and I in March 2012 to Kenya's Maasai Mara. I was really impressed with the professionalism and speed with which Soin dealt with all of our pre safari questions. All the arrangements of transfers were seamless and from the moment we set foot in the Mara we had a fabulous trip. The Mara did certainly not disappoint and we...
It is not the first time we travel with Soin Africa Safaris. Responsiveness, reliability, flexibility and good rates are some excellent reasons why we chose to travel with them once again. Another strong advantage of this company is that they work with some of the best professional guides in Africa.
This year, it was a tailor maide trip to Rwanda, including tour...
We have booked a four-day safari with Soin africa safaris in Intrepides in Maasai Mara. After telling Paul Kiuri my wishes I got very good offers.
From the first steps till reservation there were no problems and although I have all this organized from Germany I received the online booking.com documents in good time in my hands.
We had a dream time with great sigh...
Our primary focus for the safari was photography, so we did a lot of research and found that Paul Kirui was not only a gold safari guide but also an excellent photographer. He met us at the start and stayed with us until the end and no matter what we requested, nothing was ever a problem or any trouble. Not only is he a great guide and photographer, he is great com...
Soin arranged a safari for Carl, my husband, oldest daughter and her adult daughters, Hope and Becky. Our trip was a huge success. There were no glitches and obviously many hours were put into planning the itinerary and working with us on our special requests. Our two guides, Silas and Jackson, are excellent and the variety of camps provided wonderful experiences ...
