“Excellent Safari from Nairobi to Mombasa”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We had an excellent Safari with Freddy Safaris for 3 days, from Nairobi to Mombasa. The friendly guide picked us up from our hotel in Nairobi and safely drove us down to Amboseli national park where we saw some fantastic animals including, Elephant, Hippo and two Cheetahs. After a relaxing night in Kibo Safari park we were then driven to Tsavo West where it was great having the 4x4 so we could cruise around the rugged terrain searching for animals, including the Leopard. After spending a night in the park we, were then driven to Mombassa and dropped of at our hotel. We have a great time and would recommend these guys.

“One night, two day safari in Tsavo”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Arranging the safari was effortless and we met Freddie the day we arrives to confirm arrangements. We were collected by our superb driver / safari guide at the arranged time and were whisked away to Tsavo East. Aziz could not have been better - on our first day we got up close and personal with several families of elephants, baboons, buffalo, giraffe, monkeys, zebra, warthogs, bat eared foxes and numerous types of deer. We thought that our safari couldn't get better but today we saw 4 male and 4 female lions at 3 different sites. One of my friends actually cried! Aziz was brilliant - he knew where to take us and was incredibly knowledgeable. My only criticism was that we should have been advised to wear sports bras as the roads are really bumpy (joke) - honestly we can't thank Freddie and Aziz enough. Freddie even rang us on the first day to make sure we are having a good time! Amazing. I'd like to add photos but don't know how........

“Wonderful safari booked with Freddy”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I booked a sharing safari for two with Freddy after reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Freddy was extremely nice and very professional, he sent me a detailed itinerary and was flexible with the price. He was able to book us in the dates that we wanted. After spending one night in Nairobi (in Transit Hotel which was lovely) the wonderful driver Charles picked us up from our hotel early in the morning. After picking up the rest of our group we met a representative of the company. Although we did not meet Freddy in person he was nice enough to call us through the driver to make sure we are having a good time. The safari itself was fantastic. We did three days in Masai Mara and one day in Nakuru (3 nights). We saw all the big 5 (including Leopard!!) and some other great animals. The migration of the wild beast and the zebras was tremendous, so it is highly recommended to travel to Kenya during the middle of August. Our accommodations were great! we asked for a camping site and it was way over our expectations, all the tents were well equipped with bedding and a private warm shower. In Masai Mara we stayed at "Big time holidays camp" and "Flamingo camp" which were great and in Nakuru we stayed at "Genavive Hotel" which was simply lovely, the staff in both places was kind and helpful. Thanks to Freddy safari we had a wonderful and unforgettable trip in Kenya, we will definitely recommend to all of our family and friends!

“Another Great Trip.”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

This was our third visit to Kenya. Again it was fantastic. Myself and my wife Diane were there from 4th August to the 18th August. Again we did two trips with Freddy. One being a bush tour. The second a four day safari.
The safari start in Tsavo East and we stayed one night at Lion Ridge. On that day we had arranged to visit in advance to visit the David Sheldrick elephant and rhino orphanage, this was one of the highlights of our holiday. Our driver was Monday he was very good and seemed to spot the wildlife so easily. The next two days were spent in the Masia Mara region. This was also great but one heck of a drive. We stayed at a tented lodge Kimana Mara. It was not flash but a great experience. All in all a great time.
The other trip was our bush tour, we originally did this in 2009 and on this occasion got to visit Mikiriani School. We fell in love with this and went back again with Freddy in 2011. We have just got back from there again, we visited on the 15th August, Party Day for all. Our driver was Lennon, and also Freddy wanted to join us to find out what we were up to. Both guys were so helpful with giving out gifts etc and recording footage on the camcorder. They both really had a great time, and Fred was so pleased he had made effort to come with us.
We booked our trip over a yer ago with Freddy and paid in full long before our visit. The bush tour we paid for on arrival. Because we had been with Fred a few times before felt happy to do so. He as always met us on our first day, and then we paid the bush tour experience.
I can only speak as I find, but we have never had any cause for complaint. Nice one Freddy see you in 2015. Phil and Diane.
