Testimonials

Steenbok Safaris is absolutely amazing!
Steenbok Safaris arranged a 10-day safari in Kenya for me and my family. We travelled with two children (age 5 and 8 y.o.) from Canada. George, the owner, was very patient in answering all our questions and designed a custom safari the way we desired. It was my 40th birthday and this safari trip was my birthday present. George has done a great job at putting a fairly intense agenda together as we visited Amboseli, Aberdares, Samburu, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara. George is very knowledgeable, patient, professional and focused on delivering an outstanding service. He even arranged a surprise birthday cake for me while we were staying in Serena lodge in Masai Mara. I would highly recommend Steenbok Safaris and would definitely use this company again for our next safari. Of course this safari would not have been as great without our tour guide and driver David. David is an outstanding tour guide and a very cautious/careful driver. He always put our safety first. David is very knowledgeable and was able to spot not only the big 5 animals but many other rare sights. For example, we saw Zebras crossing Mara river and crocs killing one of the crossing zebras! This was an unbelievable sight particularly because we were visiting over the New Year, when migration is generally over. David also spotted a cheetah with two kubs and while we were watching the cheetah started chasing a gazelle. We also saw a family of lions including the male lions. David is also very respectful of time and was not once late for our game drive (sometimes we were a few minutes late)! I highly recommend David, particularly if you are considering a safari trip with young children. Overall, we are very happy with Steenbok Safaris, and particularly with George and David.

A very professional and friendly organisation
I have had the pleasure of using Steenbok Safaris for many years for safaris to the Masai Mara, Nairobi National Park and day car/driver hire. They organised my very first safari in Kenya 15 years ago, for our honeymoon in 2009 and a visit to Kenya with my sister in 2016. I always recommend Steenbok Safaris to friends visiting Kenya and always have good feedback from my friends, most recently in October 2018. Steenbok Safaris are very accomodating with pick ups and drop offs from Thika and Ruiru rather than just Nairobi. Their drivers are friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. I look forward to my next safari with Steenbok Safaris....or maybe even a trip to climb Mount Kenya next?!

A Great Experience
We booked a 3 day Safari with Steenbok Safaris and were able to chose our vehicle for the duration. Our driver, David, was a very careful driver and very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. David collect us from our hotel in Nairobi and drove us the distance to the Maasai Mara National Park. He then took us on an organised 3 day safari where we covered a vast distance and saw plenty of wildlife including 4 of the big 5 (only the rhino evaded us). David had good contacts with the other drivers and was a very experienced guide so was able to take us to see everything we wanted to see. Overall an excellent experience! I would suggest at least a 5 day safari if you want to see everything and be prepared that you will need to show your passport at the gate to the National Park and that there is a fee to visit the Massai village if this is offered during the trip.

Best Guide we ever have
My husband and I spent 12 days in Kenya and Tanzania for honeymoon. Everything Steenbok arranged for us was terrific. Suleiman is the best guide we ever met. He is good at driving and communicating. And he is so familiar with national parks and animals that we were able to see leopard, kudu and wild beasts crossing Mara river with his help. Everyday in Kenya and Tanzania we were seeing views we would never seen even in our dream. Steenbok and Suleiman made a marvelous journey to us. Suleiman is a nice guy. We can't help missing him as soon as we returned home!

Wonderful time in Kenya and excellent service of Steenbok
We 3 mothers and 3 children spent 10 days in Kenya this summer vacation. We had been a little worried about our safety and convenience before planning the trip. My brother who traveled in Kenya 2 years ago strongly recommended us to hire Steenbok Safaris' service. During the trip, everything was perfect. The service of Steenbok was wonderful, our driver & guide David was awesome. David is very experienced, he always drove us to the best position to take photos of animals. We really had great time there and will definitely recommend our friends to come and choose Steenbok Safaris and David. We will miss you, David! Hope we will meet again someday!

Fantastic safari and time in Kenya
Just returned to Denmark after 15 days in Kenya; Steenbok Safari and driver Suleiman made our dreams come true for our little family of four (kids 13 and 16 years old) :-) We had a wonderful time in Aberdare, Samburu, Lake Nakuru, Lake Bogoria and Masai Mara, "met" the Big Five and a lot of other animals, climbed Mt Longonot and biked to Hells gate before we got on the new train to Diani Beach and enjoyed water, sun and relaxing environment. Manager Georg and team had arranged everything - and everything was perfectly timed and arranged. Our best recommendations and sure hope to come back where we definitely would use Steenbok Safari again

Hi George,
Thank you for accommodating our adjustments during our trip to the homeland. It was wonderful to have Suleiman as our driver for the full 8 days. The kids had a great time with the Safari. They got to see quite a bit of the wildlife. We also got a chance to visit our family home in Kericho and Kisumu. Having the Land Cruiser was a good way to travel the wonderful country. 
  
I will follow up with Trip Advisor as per your suggestion, and recommend to other folks who are considering a visit to Kenya.

It was amazing!
 Everything was great and fantastic. I contacted Steenbok safaris, and its manager George was warmhearted, our tour guide Suleiman was experienced. My new friends and I had a good time and we were so lucky to see the Big 5 ;-)

Dream safari in Tanzania!
 Steenbok Safaris was our tour operator on a recent 10 day safari in Tanzania. We had used them several years ago on a Kenya Safari and remembered they were licensed to operate in Tanzania as well. My email contact was George Karuku, who is patient, well-informed and responds promptly to emails. This trip had to be carefully planned to accommodate the needs of my 86 year old mother. With George's help, I planned the itinerary to minimize the drive time between parks, yet get sufficient time to enjoy the wildlife. I am a keen birdwatcher, so we wanted a guide who could spot and identify both birds and animals. We were very pleased with our guide David and our driver Nelson, who were courteous, professional and very good spotters. The van was in very good condition and we had a comfortable trip. I have recommended Steenbok to my family and friends, and would definitely use them again on future trips!

Dream Safari in Kenya

Steenbok Safaris arranged a safari for our family (3 adults and 2 children 14 and 6 years) .. We told the manager George what we wanted and he arranged the safari according to our wishes. It was visit to Karen Blixen Museum, 4 days safari in Tsavo East and West Nationalpark and 5 days at Turtle Bay Resort. Everything worked perfect from first contact to after the safari. The car provided was of very good standard and the guide/driver Alan was very professional. It was a pleasure to be with him and he was good to find the animals including lions, cheetah, elephants, giraf, hyena, and many more. Steenbok Safaris always reply very quickly on e-mail.

Hi George:
We recently returned home from our Kenyan safari.  The trip was wonderful and Nicholas was an excellent driver and guide.  The accommodations at Mara Sopa, Lake Naivasha Country Club, Lake Nakuru Lodge and The Ark in the Aberdares were splendid.  It was truly a trip of a lifetime.  We will be happy to recommend Steenbok to anyone
looking to plan a safari.

Asante sana,

Dear George,
Thank you for seeing us off at the Nairobi airport. Four of us all enjoyed the trip. our guide is very professional and
experienced. Following his guidance, we were able to see many kinds of wildlife. We saw wildebeests crossing Mara river 4 times. We also enjoyed hot air balloon flight. The serenity of nature and beauty of wildlife moved us deeply. We shall never forget champagne breakfast, a scene as if we were in "Out of Africa". We have been watching videos
and photos we took in Kenya. Our Safari is indeed like a dream. Thank you for making this happen. We are happy to refer Steenbok to our friends who are going to make the trip in near future.

George,
Firstly, thank you for your help and service during our stay. As
always, we were well taken care of and have nothing but praise and
good memories from the trip. I always recommend you to my friends and
family travelling. We will be back next year and of course, you'll be
the first to know. Thank you again.

Christine and family, Sweden.



Hi George,

- the safari was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed this trip very
much!

Amazing Safari

George, Both my wife and I think this safari is really amazing more
than anything we have ever experienced. The scenery we saw in Kenya
and Tanzania is so so so grand and stirring. And we are also satisfied
for the service by all the staffs, including Paris, Fastest, Sali, and
David! David is such a nice guy with rich experience so that we could
find so many rare animals but leopard. However, maybe leopard will be
the expectation and motivation for our next safari. Finally, thank you
very much George. You had arranged everything prefectly for us and we
were surprised by the decoration for honey moon in and wine in all
hotels. All the experience we have in this two weeks is unforgetable
and will be one of the best memory in our life.

Steenbok, thank you again!
Nigel, China.

Perfect Safari

I sent you an email after we came back, but I guess it may ended up in
spam, or whatever.
I wanted thank you for excellent organization. Our safari was perfect,
I do personally consider that to be the best travel experience ever.
Also I would like to say, that we were very happy with our driver
Nicolas, not only great guide, but also very good companion, we could
not have been more lucky.

I hope to come back at some point, thank you very much for your help.

Kristyna, Russia.

 

Wonderful Trip

We would like to thank you for a wonderful trip in Kenya. Everything
was very well planned and the hotels were all great.
We would especially like to thank the guide who was a wonderful guide
to us. He went out of his way to ensure that we had a sighting of the
Big 5 and customized the trip as much as possible. We would also like
to thank the cook for taking care of our special dietary needs and
ensuring that we got great food accordingly.

Once again thank you for making our Kenya trip so memorable.

Aastha, India.
