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 professionalism of Across the Wild Tours made it all the more enjoyable. Our tour guide, Charles, was great - we saw every animal we wanted to see and he was really friendly and helpful. He and our cook really tried to make sure we had the best possible experience, even on our budget! I really want to thank the whole team who assisted us along the way, from Aloise and Fina in the office, to our drivers, cook and guide - everything went so smoothly!
Highly recommend this company!
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) Amboseli Kibo Camp was a good place to view Mount Kilimanjaro. We were very lucky to see the Great Migration and witness the river crossing which was our most priority during our safari.
Your driver guides Patrick and Simon were so amazing. Thanks to their professionalism, we were able to see more than we expected. They could try their best even when the schedule was behind to let us see and visit the most possible areas. We had great time, and we become good friends after spending 10 days with them in Safari.
We also give our big thank you to Fina who was our contact person from the beginning to the end. She was very responsive during our organisation before the trip and gave us the best flexibility possible for our trip based on our wishes. She also helped us organize a birthday surprise for my brother with their accompany complementary it was awesome.
At first we were a little worried about going on safari to Kenya due to Al Shabaab terrorist threats and incidents that has been happening there so we were very keen about that before making the final decision to go. Tourism has suffered due to safety issues but our desire to experience a Kenya safari got over our fears. And when we reached there things were so different and we felt so welcomed and safe than we could imagine. Across the wild is a good tour operator with very professional staff they made us come back home with very positive impression of Kenya. It is an interesting country and what makes it more beautiful is its charming people. The Kenyans are very friendly, kind, helpful and have a wonderful sense of humor.
Another group of 8 our friends from USA are going to Tanzania this year in late July and they have booked with Across The Wild Tours, we are wishing them all the best and we are very happy knowing that they are in safe hands of good and professional people. If we ever return to Africa in future we will surely use the same tour operator again and again.
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 didnt 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.
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 the best!
He is a very experienced guide, he knows his way around the parks and its like he even smell the animals out of their hideouts and as a result we saw everything! He told us very many things about the animals, the birds, the trees the flowers, and the insects.
All in all it was a wonderful trip of a lifetime experience considering a very short time of planning and I strongly recommend Across The Wild Tours & Safaris.
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... Thank you all so much.
We had a wonderful trip to Kenya. Our safari was organized by Across the Wild Tours & Safaris, and it was the most wonderful holiday my wife, our 2 children and I have ever experienced. They were always quick to respond to us and from the moment we arrived at the airport we felt so welcomed, everything was well-organized. All our accommodations were all 5 star, and the service from office staff to driver guide was of such a high standard.
Our guide, together with the office staff, picked us from the airport and took us to Eka Hotel for overnight and started our safari the next day. It was an 8-day plan so we spent 7 days on safari with our guide Steve and it was amazing. He truly made our trip such an immersing experience. He was very professional and friendly. This was an ideal tour for us that exceeded our expectations fully. We were extremely impressed with the amount of wildlife we were able to see plus the river crossing in Mara, thanks to the skilled and knowledgeable guide. We also had an opportunity to visit the Maasai village which was an awesome experience to learn the Masai culture.
Across the wild thank you for making our holiday dream possible and we highly recommend you to everyone planning safari to Kenya.
From start when we first inquired to end of our trip, everything was absolutely AMAZING! We arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta airport at midnight and saw a gentleman holding a sign board with our name, we jumped of joy. We were shown the way to our waiting vehicle and taken to city hotel to freshen up and relax as we wait for the sunrise. We wanted to leave Nairobi a little earlier but our driver was a bit later than we agreed, he picked us from the hotel at 08:15 instead of 730 but he is a very good humble person he apologized for that and we started our safari right away. From that point, until the end of our safari, our trip was planned and handled perfectly. We visited Amboseli, Aberdare, Nakuru Lake and Masai Mara. Our stay at each accommodation was great! Every single excursion that was planned through Across the Wild Tours went well without a hitch. This was truly the holiday of a lifetime, and this company made the planning very easy and flexible for us.
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, and we finally picked them due to a good report we received from our friends. We were not disappointed!!
Throughout the enquiry and booking process, Josphine was very quickly and detailed in her responses. The booking required us to make the 30% deposit before the trip to secure our accommodations. I was a bit apprehensive also but it seems to be the norm and based on what others said about their past safaris even with other operators, we finally at the end agreed that we pay 20% and I made the payments but before that we signed a contract agreement with them which gave me much courage to proceed. Good enough, I received prompt acknowledgement of my deposits as soon as the received in their account.
From the moment we were picked at the Airport by Josphine and our driver guides in Kenya Joseph and Simon to the last day we were dropped off at the airport, everything was perfect and happened more than we expected. We stayed at some good hotels and at times we were been upgraded for the purpose of animals at no extra charges, the food at hotels was really good, the service top rate and most importantly we had a really good time. We saw all of the Big 5 plus the small 5 in Samburu Park.
We visited Samburu Park, Mt Kenya Olpajeta conservancy, Nakuro Park, Masai Mara Park, Serengeti Park, Ngorongoro conservancy and Amboseli Park.
And in Tanzania sector our driver guides were Fred and Benson. These people do amazing job. We miss them both already.
At the end of our safari, we had a farewell dinner at the carnivore restaurant where Josphine joined us again just to hear how our safari was to ensure everything went well. It was so kind of her.
I strongly recommend Across the Wild Tours & Safaris and the two guides Joseph & Simon to all our friends and families and others. We came back home with a big smile on our face which is what is exactly what we were promised before.
