“One Day Safari From Mombasa to Tsavo East”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I found Freddy on the net just like almost everyone who is not from Mombasa would do. Freddy beat the best price that I could find anywhere else. But as you know a low price is not always the best company to go with. Freddy answered all my questions. I wanted to see the vehicle we would go to the park in the night before, Freddy had his driver bring a vehicle but said that this was not the exact van that we would be in the next day, bait and switch maybe, no the next day we had an even nicer van.
As for the driver, Freddy said he would be at our place at 0500, his driver was there at 0500 on the dot! Not always the case in this part of the world. The driver is the most important part of a safari, if the driver is aggressive you may die on the highway before you ever make it to the park. Freddy's driver, Sammy, was careful and safe in his driving and we were able to complete the safari safely. Sammy was one of the best tour drivers at the park the day we were there. How do I know that, other drivers had heard that there was a lion in one area of the park. Sammy was the first driver to spot the lion, even after other drivers had just passed the same spot. We were able to watch the lion and get all the pictures we wanted before at least a dozen or more drivers came racing to the area to see the lion, three of which were the drivers who had missed the lion and were turning around to get back to the area.
If I had to do another safari in Kenya I would use Freddy. Thanks,
Lee
PS - Curio shop stop on the way to the park is overpriced. Restaurant stop is lacking.

“Freddie safari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

What a gentleman will go out of his way to make your safari wonderful and rememberable. His drivers are so friendly and knowledgeable. We are going back to Kenya in March and again will be doing our safari with Freddy.
Do not worry about sending deposit he is 100% trustworthy.

“Freddy Safaris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Our party of four went to Masai Mara by air safari from Mombasa, kindly organised by Freddy. I would not hesitate to use Freddy's services again as he was extremely helpful, always quick to reply to any questions and our 2 night stay was an excellent price. We thoroughly recommend!!

“Great safari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

My husband and I went on Safari with Freddy safaris during our honeymoon. Our driver (Matanu) was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a great time and would book through them again, although next time I think we would pay extra and go to the Masai Mara.

“Excellent Safari from Nairobi to Mombasa”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
