Kimkim Trip Reviews for Kenya
A wonderful adventure!
Mar 18 - Mar 29, 2023
Joseph did a wonderful job of helping me put together the adventure of a life time in Kenya. Every detail from airport transfers, lodging, meals, and of course our safaris were taken care of, making for an absolutely stress-free trip. Joseph even went above and beyond to help deliver my fiance's hat when he left it behind at our first hotel. We had the most excellent driver and safari guide (Andrew) who taught us so much about local culture and the animals we encountered. Everyone we met from... read more
Tailored itinerary and brilliant guide.
Dec 24 - Jan 6, 2023
Joseph worked with me to create an eclectic trip that catered to our unusual needs. He managed it while staying within our low to medium budget. Our guide, Andrew Kamau was phenomenal. He has been doing this for 20+ years and was equally good at finding animals in game parks and facilitating our daughter’s need to return to the US right in the middle of the trip. He was fun, positive and knowledgeable. I could not have been happier! read more
Thanks so much for taking your time to leave a review, I'm really happy that you enjoyed your trip and being part of your experience in Kenya, I’m glad you enjoyed your time with Andrew. Many thanks as well for your patience and kindness throughout, you have been so great during the whole planning process, and it was such a pleasure to work with you.
We really appreciate for trusting us with your trip plan. We hope to see you again in the near future with more trips to East... read more

Outstanding trip. Local guides were amazing and the trip was full of adventures and wildlife.
Thanks Julien for sharing such kind words and great photos! We very much enjoyed having your family with us (especially in our Maasai community!) and we are happy to hear that you had a great experience. We hope to welcome you back to Africa again some day.

An amazing trip!
Jul 2 - Jul 10, 2022
My family's trip to Kenya was wonderful! Joseph and Susan worked so hard and so patiently with us to make sure we got to do and see everything we wanted to. Our guide, Alex, was kind and very knowledgeable and we felt very comfortable traveling with him. While we loved all the game parks we visited, the Maji Moto Cultural Camp was definitely a highlight for us all, especially the kids, who greatly enjoyed learning warrior skills. We left Kenya with heavy hearts, but with amazing photos and memories. We hope to return sometime in the future. A huge thank you to Joseph, Susan and Alex!
A Safari that exceeded our expectations
Jul 2 - Jul 10, 2022
Kim Kim did an amazing job. Our Safari between July 3 and 10 not only met but exceeded our expectations. Joseph and Susan kept close contact with us from the gecko until the end.
We especially appreciated the consideration given to selecting the base camp in the Maasai Mara as an example of a lodge that is designed to support conservation and to benefit the community.
Our visit to Maji Moto was a very special highlight. Special thanks to Susan for arranging this wonderful stay and to all of the Maji Moto staff.
Thanks Marcia for your kind words, we truly enjoyed having your family with our Maasai community in Maji Moto and we are happy that you enjoyed your safari overall. We are grateful for your support of camps like our Maji Moto Maasai Cultural Camp and Basecamp Mara where we are working together to preserve and protect nature and culture. And we're glad that you felt our commitment to supporting your journey at every step along the way. We hope to see you again for more African adventures! Ashe oleng, asante sana, many thanks.
Outstanding, Trip to Kenya Courtesy of Nariku Travel Experiences.
Nov 26 - Dec 4, 2021
In the past year I have been to, among other places, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Greece and Portugal, and my trip to Kenya was my favorite. This is due in large part to Nariku Travel Experiences. I gave them a basic blueprint of what I wanted to see, do and accomplish and they delivered. Thank you Joseph and Susan. The guide for most of my trip, George, was outstanding. George was knowledgable, personable and downright fun to be around. I miss his and being part of the A-Team. The safari... read more
Thanks so much for the awesome review! On behalf of the entire team, we are so happy to hear that both we and Kenya lived up to your expectations. Also glad to hear you had an authentic experience with the Maasai People at Maji Moto Maasai Cultural Camp.
We appreciate for trusting us with your trip plans, and hope to see you again in the near future with more trips to East Africa or any other part of the world.
With warm and best Regards,
Joseph and Jossy Travel Rock! Absolute must for Kenya Safari
Dec 14 - Jan 3, 2020
I recently went on holiday with Joseph from Jossy Travel for a 3 week solo safari. The holiday was planned last minute due to some personal issues and I simply gave Joseph a short description of what I wanted to do (Im a photographer who also loves hiking), a request for a driver with a truck for viewing and an idea of my budget. From the first contact, Joseph himself planned and organised the holiday from start to finish! He prepared a detailed itinerary within 24 hours which covered most of... read more
Barry, my apology for late reply, thank you for your honest and 5 star review, I quickly learned you love nature and wildlife which is also my passion making great teamwork, it turned up to be one of best trip the end of last year and great way to start this year, we visited 8 different parks and reserves and tries to get the best early and late afternoon shorts, getting stuck with our 4X4 was fun and to crown it all was visit to my family on our way to Samburu Park, I will say it was a 3 weeks of fun.

Aug 17 - Sep 6, 2019
Oh my, what an amazing experience. Susan was just absolutely fabulous. Answered all my questions promptly and just truly arranged an amazing trip for my 50th birthday. Zanzibar was incredible, Stone Town a delight. The hotels we stayed in were to die for. Truly works of art. The highlight of my trip was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Our guides Sinaí and Amsi were amazing, kept my daughter and I entertained and safe. They were so knowledgeable of the área, plants, animals, everything. ... read more
Thanks for sharing your experience Kristin! It was a pleasure to plan this special journey for your birthday, and I'm so happy to hear that together we created a great mix of places and people to give you a feeling for the true and varied beauty of East Africa. I've passed along your kind words to your friends here, and we all hope we will see you again soon.
Asante sana, Ashe oleng, Many thanks.
Apr 5 - Apr 7, 2019
The whole experience was great and everything worked like clockwork. Susan was helpful and very efficient in planning and organising the trip. She responded very quickly to all my requests and came up with some very useful suggestions. Daniel, our driver and guide was a carful driver and knowledgeable guide who was also friendly. I particularly rated him meeting me before our trip to introduce himself and go through arrangements. The lodge, the Lion's bluff , was superb, great location, good food and friendly, helpful staff. Thank you Kimkim.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your trip Jenny. We really appreciate hearing that our local insights and best efforts to provide a great experience was successful in giving you a wonderful adventure. I've shared your kudos with the Daniel and the rest of our team, and hope that we can plan further East African travels for you in the future.

Our family vacation to Kenya was exhilarating and surpassed our high expectations. Joseph Ngigi of Jossy Travel helped the “vacation of a lifetime” become a reality through his role as our planner, driver, and guide. Joseph carefully listened to our desires for the trip and developed an itinerary that completely met those needs. The trip encompassed exposure to: Kenyan culture (attending performing arts, visiting a Masai village,... read more

Susan was very flexible and patient with numerous changes to our itinerary. She uses fabulous guides and booked wonderful lodges. Her expertise was invaluable in making our trip to Kenya fantastic!!!
Thanks for your kind words Virginia, it was a pleasure to work together on creating a wonderful adventure, and to meet up with you in Kenya.

Masai Mara Trip
Oct 25 - Oct 27, 2018
Everything was wonderful! Joseph was our guide and his knowledge of the area and animals was amazing. Wilson and William, our waiter and security to and from our tent, where very welcoming and fun to talk to. The views from our Chalet was unforgettable. Sunrise and sunsets were always surrounded my giraffes at Mara West.
I'm so happy that you had such a great time in Maasai Mara. It is an amazing and beautiful corner of the world, and it was a pleasure to arrange the experience for you. And it was great to meet up with you as you were passing through my Kenyan home town!
I’ll pass along your nice comments to the Mara West team, and look forward to welcoming you back to your Kenya home soon.

This is the 2nd time my husband and I have used kimkim for a travel excursion and they worth it! From start to finish they make sure your needs are cared for and you have many options to choose from.
For this adventure, we were celebrating our 25th anniversary and wanted to go on a safari! We were settled in a wonderful lodge at Hammerkops and everything was spectacular. On our actual anniversary date, the lodge even made us a special cake!
There are not enough words to express our thanks to kimkim. You have a customer for life!
Thank you so much Liz & Fred. It was wonderful to have you take again a trip with us and we are so delighted that you had a spectacular time while in Maasai Mara! Looking to hosting you again in the near future!
Affordable Comfortable Authentic Masai Mara Safari Not Luxury

Hi Susan and Kimkim,
Re: star ratings above: Susan was very nice (five stars) and booking on your site is excellent (five stars). I put three stars because of value of trip to us.
My computer has been in repair but I’m up and running so here is our review.
Accommodations and Sites on Each Stop:
Fairview Hotel: Wonderful. We would love to have rested up here for first day as you know.
Sites: Baby elephants and giraffe fun to see. Suspect in hindsight that a drive through the... read more
Hi Cheryl and William,
Thanks for your sharing your thoughts on your recent Kenya trip. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed our working together and the use of the KimKim app, though of course I am sorry to hear that the value of the trip fell short of your expectations.

Although you and William and I exchanged many... read more
East Africa Highligts
Sep 4 - Sep 18, 2018
Kimkim was new to me, living in Melbourne, Australia. The entire process was a flawless one, with Kimkim connecting me directly to Joseph a local expert in Kenya. Joseph arranged and organised our dream experience and was there every step of the way, from finalising the trip details to making our holiday one to remember! Nothing was too difficult, and even being able to adjust our itinerary along the way to make the experience special and flow seamlessly. We experienced the parks of Kenya... read more
Thank you, Stacey, for your honest review, I am happy that I made your African dream come true, I liked your husband JOHN, a person full of business plans and ideas, I had a chance to learn more of business while we were on safari, kimkim platform is one of the best places to connect with local people who will have the best information and knows everything about safari in details, I am happy about your recommendation.
thank you again.
Masai Mara Safari and Zanzibar beach vacation
Aug 31 - Sep 13, 2018
So my wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon/1st year anniversary on an African safari in Kenya, then to Seychelles, and Dubai on the way back home (Los Angeles).
I could not have asked for a better travel agent. Communication was very simple using the kimkim chat room, even though she was on Kenya time and I was at home. She guided me through everything and made the whole experience very simple and enjoyable.
She arranged our driver, Richard to pick us up from the airport and took... read more
It was such a pleasure to plan this special trip with you David. With your first thoughts on where you wanted to go and what you wanted to experience, we really worked well together to create each day of this great adventure. I wish for many more beautiful travel experiences for you and your wife.
Ashe oleng, asante sana, many thanks.
Wildlife and adventure
Aug 5 - Aug 17, 2018
Susan was wonderful with helping us plan our trip. She really listened to what type of experience we were looking for and made it possible. I’ve traveled to over 20 countries, but Kenya was by far one of the best experiences I’ve had. If you are going to Kenya, follow Susan’s recommendation, and go to Maji Moto! That was an experience of a lifetime. I will gladly recommend Susan for anyone looking to travel to Kenya.
So happy to know you had a great experience with us Yuruani. We had so much fun showing you the beauty of Kenya and especially sharing our Maasai community in Maji Moto. I hope you're all practicing your campfire singing and spear throwing skills! Hoping we'll see you back another day. Ashe oleng (many thanks)
Mar 29 - Apr 4, 2018
Joseph of Jossy Travel treated us incredible, he exceeded our wildest dreams! We were able to see the big five and many other animals and we were so close! Joseph explained interesting facts and told wonderful stories that I am sure we will be telling our family for many years to come. Joseph knows the ins and out and was even able to get us a new card for our camera when we ran out of space., Birthday cake for my daughter, helped us bargain hunt by speaking to the locals. There is nothing... read more
Thank you, Michele, for your honest review, we worked together to make that happen, I must say you have a very nice family and I am happy we made the family "African dream come true", thank again!
