Our first safari was a dream one

Views: 735 Visited: Oct 2016 Reviewed: Oct 31, 2016

Our first safari in Kenya and Tanzania was amazing: great itinerary and support from Soin Safari and fantastic experiences throughout our stay, especially in the camps in Tarangire ans Serengeti. We learned a lot about the wildness and had the chance to see Rhinos in Serengeti to complete our Big 5!

From the Kilimanjaro in Amboseli, to the never ending savane in Serengeti, landscapes are spectacular all over the region.
Special thanks to ... read more

Never disappointed

Views: 707 Visited: Feb 2015 Reviewed: Mar 17, 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... read more

Excellent service and advice from start to finish

Views: 466 Visited: Feb 2015 Reviewed: Mar 09, 2015

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 safari I would highly recommend Soin Safaris. A real pleasure to deal with and t... read more

Better than ever imagined

Views: 395 Visited: Sep 2014 Reviewed: Oct 08, 2014

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 the cheetah mother with her cubs and the giraffe that had been killed the night be... read more

My favorite place Masai Mara

Views: 467 Visited: May 2014 Reviewed: Jun 11, 2014

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.
Highlights would be Caracal that I met for the first time.
We're already planning the next tri... read more

Family Safari to the Amboseli and the Mara

Views: 616 Visited: Apr 2014 Reviewed: May 08, 2014

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 Explorer, also a fantastic camp (our 3rd time), we love this camp. The Mara is my fav... read more

A seamless and fantastic trip to the Maasai Mara.

Views: 401 Visited: Mar 2012 Reviewed: Apr 27, 2014

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 had some really wonderful sightings and experiences, not to mention staying in ... read more

Exciting trip to Rwanda

Views: 686 Visited: Mar 2014 Reviewed: Apr 07, 2014

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 tourism and professionnal visit. Our guide was Kirenga Kamugisha, the chairman of th... read more

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.

Masai Mara Safari with Paul Kirui

Views: 555 Visited: Feb 2014 Reviewed: Feb 22, 2014

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 company and tells the most interesting and often very funny stories. He is also an ... read more

Safari in Kenya: A Huge Success

Views: 451 Visited: Jun 2012 Reviewed: Feb 21, 2014

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 that we will remember forever. Hope mentioned at Amboseli Porini Camp that I pre... read more
