There are literally thousands of operators to choose from if you want to go on safari in Kenya. So who are the best ones?
I have access to many travel diaries that are submitted to my African Safari Journals website and this allows me to see exactly who the good safari companies and tour operators are.
This information comes first hand from people who have actually gone on safari in Kenya with that operator so it is very relevant and unbiased.
I also (more about me) keep my ear to the ground in travel industry exhibitions, forums, newsletters and travel magazines to find out who the cream of the crop in the African travel business is.
This list is not meant as a "be all and end all" classification because there are more than three good safari companies out there but it will give you a great starting point in your search...
It wouldn't be fair if you were trying to rank safari companies to lump them all in the same category because they fall into three distinct areas based on the rates they charge for a safari trip.
Low season rates can be about 25% less than high season rates. The rate indications below exclude international and inter-Africa airfares.
Deluxe: Prices range from $650 upwards per person per night spent on safari.
Mid Range: Between $300 and $650 per person per night spent on safari.
Budget (usually camping): From $100 to $300 per person per night spent on safari.
The companies are listed in rates categories in no particular order other than alphabetical. Here are examples of some of the Kenya travel reviews that form the basis for this ranking...
The best way to find that out is to make a rates and availability enquiry by clicking on the relevant link in the box below.
And instead of having to contact each company one by one simply choose your applicable rates category (budget, mid-range, deluxe) and all three the top operators in that category will get back to you with their specific rates. A great time saver.
