All pre-travel communication with Zippy was seamless, and she even came to the airport to greet us personally when we arrived in Nairobi as well as after the safari. Zippy is an excellent and a very... More

AUSTRALKEN Under Kenyan proprietorship, this outfit seems to have contacts everywhere. We had a triple centred safari and from the beginning Ms Zippy Mugweru tailored the itinerary to our wishes, no matter how great the distances involved. We bought a private safari, with driver/guide and felt absolutely secure whether travelling on major trunk routes or on pitted trails within the... More

Zippy, who is in charge of bookings, is very responsive and super helpful. Our driver and cook (John and Evan) were amazing: always on-time, very friendly, Evan was a safe and... More

From the moment we were put in contact with Australken, we felt well taken care of. A family member of ours recommended the company after they had taken a safari with two children and had a wonderful time. Zippy, the coordinator, provided us with a beautiful itinerary, thoughtfully planned and executed. By nature we are adventurous travellers. In fact, I... More

She made sure everything was perfect for our trip and had a super, positive attitude. Simon our... More
