Our trip with Simon was arranged short notice but He managed to set up an amazing tailored tour for us with a very knowledgeable eagle eyed driver. We were on the Safari for 2 days because we had a whistle stop tour of Kenya. He got us very suitable accommodation in Sentrim and we loved it. We got to see most of the animals we came to see. We would go back for a longer period next time. Totally worth it.

Fantastic is to little to explain we were very happy to share with his help this beautiful
Experience he showed his skillful ness when a far away lions family was ready to
Attack a buffalos bunch
We were waiting and it happened and we
Could filmed everything very near to our
Car
Obviously it was a drama and sometimes
The nature. Reveal it self
But Simon as I was astonished he explained that nature is as God decided
That was opening the doors of my mind
Thank you Simon you are also a great
Thinker

Simon planned nine days of safari and Nairobi trip for our family of four in April 2019. He and Antony (our driver and guide) came all the way to Eldoret to pick us up and we couldn't have asked for a better experience or better company to go with.

Our driver Antony was fantastic, and highly knowledgeable about safari and keeping us entertained. Antony took time to explain about animals and was very keen in finding the animals. The masai mara reserve is gorgeous and there is an abundant amount of wildlife. We saw lions, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, zebras, buffalos, wildebeests, ostriches, hippos, crocodiles, gazelles, hyenas, antelopes, impalas, all different kinds of birds and lizards, and so much more. Animals in Tsavo west and east were little scattered due to recent rains.

They picked excellent places for us to stay from Naivasha, Masai Mara, Amboseli, Tsavo West and East. The camp site was much better that we expected we had hot water, a bed with mosquito net, light to charge the phones and a nice food.

My husband and I just returned from safari and I’m already writing this review because it was that good! We booked a two day, private safari in Tsavo East through Simon. We had Freddy as our guide and greatly enjoyed our tour!

We were picked up at our hotel by Simon and Freddy. Simon introduced himself, then was dropped back off at the office while we went on.

Freddy is a skilled driver and took us to a nice place to stop for a snack and restrooms before entering the park.

Once inside the park we began seeing the animals and just enjoyed the scenery. The most magical part was at sunset when we encountered a large group of elephants that were quite close our vehicle! Simply stunning! Freddy also knew a lot about every animal we saw and was incredibly knowledgeable about the park itself. Very friendly and answered all our questions!

The Voi lodge provides simple, yet clean rooms and the bar by the pool has a fantastic lookout point!

Thank you Freddy and Simon for organizing such a memorable experience for us!!!

We booked a 2 day safari to Tsavo East with Simo.

Our guide was Moses, bushman from an old Masai family (as he is proud to tell you right away), driver, guide, and on top of that, a wonderfull human being. Moses made the bush come alive with his stories and knowledge, he knows the park by heart, spots animals like a lion, always (without you even noticing it) assures your safety (which is vital, it's not a zoo, we are the strangers intruding into their world). Moses truly transmits you his admiration, understanding and respect for the true wildlife. A lesson in life, and in wildlife.

Just one general advice: Like with many things in many countries, it is always better to confirm every agreement in writing, especially things like the number of people in the car, the type of vehicle that will be used, hours and times, meals, etc. If you can, offer yourself a personal safari, with just you and your partner and the guide. It makes the experience exponentially stronger !!!

Our visit to Funzi equalled the quality of the safari. Mohamed, our guide, was a walking encyclopedia of the life in and on his island, speaks English, French, German and even quite good Polish, and as he talks as much with his heart as with his brain, he also transmits you the love and respect he feels for his home (Mohamed actually lives on Funzi with his family).

In summary, great organisation, abslutely recommendable!
