My recommendation is Glorious Safaris. Used them in Feb for a 6 day safari of the parks you mentioned and booked a 15 day trip with them for next year. Plenty of reviews on here but I'd recommend dropping them a line - shadrack@glorioussafaris.com - and they'll be able to advise further and also provide a quote.

We emailed quite a few and found them to be very good on cost!

we used Southern Cross, who were very professional and warned us of the bad road conditions to Tsavo due to road works at that time. They also organised our flights to Zanzibar and booked the hotel of our choice and arranged airport transfers etc.

However, many tourists seem happy to use the safaris offered by the beach boys on the beach. None of the boys offered the info. re the road works ( 2 extra hours travelling) and I immediatley had my doubts on their honesty when they showed me a photo of the lodge that they claimed they used in Tsavo. Fortunately, I had stayed at this lodge the previous year and knew the name to be different to the one they were offering. Having said all that, most tourists at our hotel seemed to have had a good time with the beach boys.

Hi,

Used MICS for a three days safari to Maasai mara safari and a two night safari to Tsavo and would definitely recommend them for their good work. All booked ahead of our Kenya Holiday.

Their web address is www.micssfaris.com

Reached my decision after remarkable reviews out here.

Hi SafcUK,

There are plenty of local tour operators in Mombasa/Diani Beach. You may do the search and hopefully you will find a reputable company to deal with. I always use Ringo Safaris in Diani beach. You can try them also.

Good luck in planing your safari.

John.

Whoever you use if they try to stick you in the Hippo River Lodge and Spa run for cover. I just returned and our opertaor booked us in there and it was terrible. We actually got a refund from our tour operator.
