    The BEST safari company - guarenteed at a reasonable cost

    The BEST safari company - guarenteed at a reasonable cost
    If you are ready for the BEST safari, use this company!!!!! We had been looking at African Safari’s for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge. We did exhaustive research on big and small tour companies. Some had hundreds of reviews and some had only a few. We decided to go with Expedition Kenyan Safari’s because of the owner, Patrick. We asked numerous questions about travel, accommodations, shots needed, dress and many more. Patrick responded the very next day with answers and additional information that he felt we needed. When he said he would do something, he did it. Whether mailing us stuff, arranging hotels, arranging flights or emailing us. He did what he promised and followed up to insure our understanding. He took a personal interest in our piece of mind. Some people shy away from small companies, but with Patrick the service, professionalism, and client concern far outweighed big company bustle. The trip was amazing without any glitches. The driver (“Eagle Eye”) was extremely professional with great knowledge of all the animals, birds and plants that we spotted. He would also stop without hesitation whenever we needed to get a great snapshot. We heard many poor stories from other travelers about their big company experiences, no thank you.
