How did you get involved in travel?

"Traveling and meeting new people is my passion since childhood, after my early career working with united Nations, year 2000 i decided to get to my passion i enrolled for 2 years tour guiding and administration course and after my graduation i started traveling in many parts of Kenya visiting National parks and learning detailed wild animals behaviors, birds, trees, meeting local people and understanding their culture and learning their local languages.

I wanted to share with other people who love to travel my experience and year 2002 me and my wife we started our travel company. Our team is professionals and we guarantee you an unforgettable African safari experience."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Walking with my late father in the forest tracking animals an experience he got from my grandfather, who was a medicine man treating people with tree roots and leaves, each and every sign in the woods had a meaning, be a scratch, an animal far or bird's sound, was like animal forensic science in the woods, one day when we were walking we came across Lion's paws and my father told me to jump and the soil carved inside and he was like "they are not far we have to leave quickly.""

Kenya Game Drives and Much More (December 8 – 22, 2018)

Kenya Game Drives and Much More (December 8 – 22, 2018)

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, viewing a historical home); the beauty of the country (through scenic drives, a hike to the peak of Mt. Longonot, a bike ride and trek through the deep canyons of Hell’s Gate by Lake Naivasha); and of course, lots of game drives. We crisscrossed Kenya, above and below the equator, visiting eight different parks. Joseph’s knowledge of the parks, animals and birds was encyclopedic. We took morning and late afternoon safaris most days, and he was extremely committed to making sure we saw the broadest range of wildlife possible. Joseph’s relationships with individuals in the parks and other tour drivers also helped toward that end. Finally, Joseph was simply fun to be with. He always greeted us with a big smile, told interesting stories about Kenya, treated us to snacks on our trips between parks, was flexible in adjusting plans to meet our needs, and always checked to make sure we were enjoying the trip. Any family would be very lucky to have Joseph Ngigi plan and guide their trip to Kenya.

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 and Tanzania, saw the big 5 numerous times, and have some truly amazing photos and memories of the wildlife and people of Africa! We conquered Mt Longonot and rode bicycles through Hellsgate (riding alongside Zebra's and gazelles to name a few of the animals) followed by a guided walking tour through the gorge-truly memorable. I have already recommended both Kimkim and Joseph to all of our friends and will definitely be using the site when planning our next adventure-Thank you kimkim and especially Joseph!
