Tour Reviews
  • Dan

    Spend 7 days together with Nicholas on a tour that was customized for us

    He did all the eforts to accomplish what was agreed by us for the tour in Kenya.

    Everything  was  good and with some adjustments in the end the tour was quite an experience.

    I reccommend him to study hard and learn from every experience (as a person that leads safari programs) to become a better one.

    It was great experience for me while guided by Mr. Nicholas Ndegwa in my stay in kenya, Nairobi.

  • kevin.bascon

    I had mixed emotions at first before traveling to Kenya as it is also my first time on stepping out of Asia, so I took the best tips/ contacts out of my friends who have travelled there before, which led me on communicating with Nicholas Ndegwa. Nicholas and I agreed on a Nairobi Day Tour and a 4D/3N Safari (Maasai Mara & Lake Nakuru) for the last week of July. With the stressful work and schedule I have, I salute Nicholas for keeping up his patience with me all the way, as there were many times that I tend to miss/ forgot some of the details of the tour which we've discussed already, which led to repetitive explaining and sorting.

    As I arrive in Nairobi, Nicholas went for the extra mile on having me vaccinated for yellow fever and bringing me to the hotel. The Nairobi Day Tour, which included the Elephant Orphanage Center, Giraffe Conservation Center, Karen Blixen Museum, and an Carnivore restaurant, went great. The next day, I started the safari. I was very happy for seeing the BIG FIVE. I highly suggest to travelers on taking  this 4D/3N Safari if they are short in time.

    There was a time when there was a checkpoint with the Tourist Policemen and they found out that I was the only traveler (among the group of seven that I am with) complete with permits, tax papers, and parking fee receipts - I highly appreciate on what Nicholas did for this because it only means he worked and secured for the very details of my trip.

    I will never forget my first trip out of Asia, and I dont have any regrets on doing this with Nicholas Ndegwa.
