We recently used Pollman's Tours and Safaris for three days while in Kenya before we went to Tanzania. A very experienced tour company. From the outset their guide - Johnson, was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable about the area we travelled and marvellous with his knowledge about the wild animals we encountered. The tour included staying at the famous Ol Tukai... More

Cannot say enough how great Pollman's tours and safaris are. We were greeted at the airport and taken to our hotel. The next morning we met our driver/guide Benson who took us to Masai Mara SOPA lodge for a two day Safari. The SOPA lodges are very clean and upscale. Benson did his very best in locating the various animals... More

He was full of enthusiasm and he was good fun. He was very knowledgeable. When he found out that I like all the baby animals he kept an eye out for all possible... More

We lucked out by getting an excellent driver (Joseph) who was very experienced and knew all the right spots for wildlife viewing. Well spoken, very helpful, especially when we needed some emergency medical care due to one of the kids having an insect bite. Overall, top marks for service and care.

We took a 2 days trip to safari with Pollmans, from our hotel Papillon Lagoon Diani Beach.
