Our family (three adults) went on a 12 day safari with this operator in Kenya and Tanzania. We spent seven days in Kenya and five days in Tanzania. Working with direct kenya safaris person, Keneth Nduso, we researched parks and reserves to visit and came up with that met our needs and budget. Keneth provided excellent guidance over the months we worked on our itinerary.
Paul, our guide in Kenya was experienced, knowledgeable, and personable. At each park, and reserve we visited, he knew where to find animals and birds we hoped to see and observe. We photographed elephants, lions, rhinos, zebras, various types of gazelle, giraffes, buffalo, wildebeests, jackals, and tons of birds , many other species of animals and birds. Micheal, our guide in Tanzania, did equally fantastic and really took good care of us.
Generally, this is your go to whenever you want to visit Africa for your safari.
We cannot recommend Direct Kenya safaris enough. My wife and I booked a private 12 days safari ( lake nakuru, masai mara, serengeti, ngorongoro, amboseli) in may. The booking was really easy and Nduso was very responsive and supportive.
Our driver/guides both in Kenya and Tanzania showed up always in time, we felt safely during the drives. They knew nearly every animal we saw (and we saw a lot). The lodges were booked correctly, at the end we were dropped off at the airport as planned.
Our friends who had a safari with this operator referred us to them and they didn't disappoint. After so many emails and WhatsApp conversations we finally had our 9 day customised private safari (Tsavo East, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara.)
Our Guide David was the best guide we could ask for. He was always on time, experienced, professional and had a great vison for wildlife. Their prices are fair compared to many operators out there.
This was our first fantastic safari ever and certainly not the last.
Our trip was very well planned and organized by Nduso. We were picked us up at the airport on arrival and headed straight to Amboseli for our 3 day safari there. Our guide, Paul, explained the nature well and answered all our questions. He was always on time and put us in the right positions to observe the animals. We saw a lot of animals especially the big cats like lions cheetahs and a leopard. We also saw the beautiful snow caped Mt Kilimanjaro
The safari car was perfect and offered enough space for both of us.
Enough drinking water was also provided every day.
My husband and I booked this 8-Day Safari of Amboseli, Ol-Pejeta, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha with Direct Kenya Safaris and they didn't disappoint. Our contact person, Nduso, is a good tour planner, quick to reply and helpful. We saw very many animals including the big five and thousands of wildebeest and many more. Our accommodations were clean and we had nice food all the time. Generally their prices are relatively cheap and they are reliable.
We always wanted to book our safari with a locally owned agency. Direct Kenya Safaris gave us a very personalized service,our guide Patrick was very nice and took us to the best spots for our photography.
We recommend them.
Our 5 day safari with Direct Kenya safaris was absolutely incredible! Nduso was very kind and gave us quick responses to any question. We were very fortunate to have Charo as our guide, he is incredibly professional, His knowledge of Kenyan culture and nature is top notch. We saw the big 5 and much more, beautiful experiences!!
Highly recommend them.
Our 8 day safari of amboseli, nakuru, masai mara and green crater lake walk was the best holiday so far. This tour operator did an amazing job from organisation to the actual safari. They have a great desire to serve and make their clients happy.
Our guide alex was always on time, knowledgeable and informative. We cannot imagine going to Africa and not booking with them in the future.
Thank you Nduso and the entire team at DKS for making our holiday memorable.
My daughter and I took 5 days midrange package of Nakuru, Masai Mara and naivasha with amazing and professional driver Marcus. He went beyond any expectation to get us to spots where we can observe animals. He knows so much about animals and parks. We felt safe with him and took amazing photos of all animals.
The agency was very responsive and helped us to arrange the trip with a very short notice with the help of Nduso. Overall, the trip was amazing, went expectedly well and as planned.
I can't say enough good things about DKS. I just returned from a 16 day trip to Uganda and Kenya. Mine was a private safari, which made it a little more expensive, but that almost meant I got to make it exactly what I wanted, and didn't have to deal with strangers. It was also super safe in this time of Covid. Keneth helped me arrange my trip and we sent hundreds of emails back and forth during the year it took to plan. He answered all my questions (and there were a lot!), and was always quick to respond. When Rwanda closed the land borders to tourists 9 days before my departure, he let me know immediately. He suggested an alternative, I changed my flight, and he had my whole itinerary rearranged in less than 24 hours. I was very excited when I got to finally meet him in Nairobi, and thank him in person, and he spent my last day on tour with me and my driver. My driver was David. He was with me my entire time in Africa. After two weeks with him, I felt like I made a friend. He shielded me from shady officials wanting bribes, knew the best times to go on game drives, introduced me to the most delicious spicy ginger tea, and even taught me some Swahili. David and Keneth took such good care of me. I can't imagine going back to East Africa, and not booking my trip with DKS.
My wife and I booked the 3 days masai mara safari in July with Dks. We have been dreaming of going on safari and it was planned perfectly by Mr Nduso and the team. We were lucky to witness the wildebeest migration and crossing the river as well as the big five and many animals.
When we plan for another safari we will definitely go with them. Asante sana!
