We rented very last minute a car from explorer to do our own one week itinerary. Robert was fast in responding and made us a good deal for the car. Our driver/guide Martin was great. Very knowledgeable about all the animals and birds. He really made this trip more special than we could have dreamed of.

Prior to arriving in Kenya, we coordinated the safari with Robert from Explorer Kenya. He was very responsive to all of our questions and helped us choose a customized tour. If you are looking for tour options on the company's website, don't assume the packages indicated are the only options you have. You can email Robert and he'll help you... More

Rough and Tumble drive, was amazed at the skill full driving by the safari Drivers. Ended up having punctures, Brave Drivers would ask us all to leave the cab and stand behind the truck- watching - for sudden appearances of wild Animals. Luckily a second 4x4 safari drive came to our drivers aid. Phew all done we are ready for... More

We rented a 4x4 landcruiser with driver. It was okay but its cheap commercial tourist style. Bringing u to place to leave your money behind and spotting is with pure radio and due to other spotters telling him the location. Overall it was good and we stayed save but would never do travel by road again. If u can fly... More

Guide cum Driver Moses receives me in his 4X4 comfortable Land Cruiser. He was an extremely wonderful person, very helpful, resourceful and had great sense of humour. He had a vast... More

We had an excellent 4 day safari with the perfect driver/guide John. He was very experienced & knowlegable and managed to find all Big 5 for us. Everything from booking and contact with Robert, payment and actual safari exceeded our expectations. Great value for money, we will certainly come back. Our kids 10 & 12 years old loved this trip!

This is the second time, I have used Explorer Kenya. Back in 2014, I found Robert through Trip Advisor and was very nervous about sending money from the US to an unknown person. My two friends and I spent 17 days in Kenya, covering Samburu, Ol Peseta Ranch, Tree hotel at Mount Kenya, Nakuru, Masai Mara Naivasha, Amboseli and Mombasa,... More
