Can anyone recommend a good safari operator?

Hi Folks,

My other half and I have chosen to go on Safari for part of our Honeymoon October 2013. We are booking the beach part of the holiday via Thomsons/First Choice but have been advised my friends and family to avoid booking a safari with them as the jeeps can be crowded. We'll be based in Diani Beach for our holiday.

I'm not sure if you are allowed to recommend specific companies on the forum but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have tried contacting Julius-safaris nemerous times and have had no reply, which is a shame as they came very hoghly recommended.

Thanks, Lou :)

Also try

Patrick at PD tours and safaris. He used to be with a glorious safaris and has recently started his own company. I have been on safari with Patrick about 5 times and can not recommend him highly enough.

There is Julius Safaris and JT Safaris, I have always used JT and he is excellent. You can always wait until you arrive and email prior and he will send a driver to collect you, discuss your safari, pay a deposit and then only pay the balance upon your return.

Larissa,

If I may recall Jt safaris and Julius safaris are two different companies.

I would recommend Plan Safari Ltd, very efficient in every way, from communication to delivering the services.

Not according to their websites (the one's that you posted the links to)

Julius T Safaris (led by Julius Thuvi) only refer to themselves as Julius T Safaris they do not refer to themselves as Julius Safaris or JT Safaris

as said above JT Safaris refer to themselves as Julius Safaris, JT Safaris and Julius Tact Safaris
