All my fears about booking disappeared when Julius himself met us in Nairobi and introduced us to our driver - Francis and "spotter" Andrew. I had emailed Julius with our specific requirements - holding out no hope of getting what we wanted as companies here just couldn't accommodate us.... however....

Booked a 7 day safari then 6 days on the beach holiday with JuliusTsafaris for early March. There were three of us travelling and we wanted to stay in one room on safari - this was accommodated with no problem. Visited Masai Mara, Lake Navasha, Samburu and Treetops. Stayed in 5 absolutely fantastic lodges, and had a total of 10 safari trips - all in a private jeep with a driver and "spotter" - thank you Francis and Andrew who arrived cheerfully every morning and made sure we saw every animal - including leopard and (in the last 5 minutes of the last safari) a cheetah! Plus a running commentary on tea/coffee growing and information on towns we were passing through. We were always reminded of the time to be picked up and what we would be doing for the next day which took all the stress of the holiday away.

Julius booked our flights from Nairobi to Mombassa and hotel (Diani Sea Resort). A driver met us and took us to Diani Sea Resort (see separate review). We were given the best rooms with sea view and had a well deserved 6 day all inclusive rest.

Email Julius now if you want a fantastic safari - emails are replied to immediately and we transferred both deposit and final payment via Bank with no problem.

I cannot recommend this organisation enough.

Many thanks to Julius and his team for their unstinting efforts organising my 50th birthday expedition trekking to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
All aspects of the trek were organised to our complete satisfaction (and all four friends made it to the summit).
After Kilimanjaro we enjoyed a very pleasant beach holiday and then a marvellous few days on safari. Everything organised with great attention to all the important details.
I have no hesitation recommending Julius Thuvi and juliustsafaris.com.

In late February we visited Kenya. We planned a short safari, we ordered after a long decision by Julius Thuvi Safaris. Now I must express my great satisfaction with the overall provision of all services from Julius. Although we were a little concerned about the fact that we paid in Mombasa Julius cash advance on Safari $ 1,000, everything was exactly as described. We had a quick two day safari in Tsavo East and Tsavo West, sleeping in Ngulia Lodge. It was a short, two days, but we saw 20 kinds of animals including lion and leopard at night in Ngulia lodge.

We visited Kenya in the first half of February 2014. As we were staying there for two weeks, we wanted to go safari for 3 days (2 nights). Having read about different safari experiences of many people, we tried to find and select a trustworthy partner/company who would organize the trip for us. I personally contaced a couple of companies and asked for programs, recommendations as to the places worth visiting etc. Basing on the recommendation from my neighbours, who were in Kenya in November 2013, I also got in touch with Julius Thuvi. After exchanging a few emails we decided to go safari with Julius's company - Julius Tsafaris.
At first we decided for two national parks - Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Subsequently, after discussion on site, in Julius's office, we changed Tsavo West for Taita Hills.
The safari was an outstanding experience, all in all.
Our group consisted of 10 people (5 adults and 5 kids). We took two jeeps 4x4, the bigger one for 6 people, the smaller one for 4 people. Our drivers - Peter and Dida - very nice pals, told many different stories and had eyes around their heads (were spotting animals much earlier than we). First night we spent in Tsavo East in Ashnil Aruba Lodge. The lodge nice and comfortable with exception of lack of air conditioning. in the evening it was raining and there was a thunderstorm, so the night was really terrible - very very hot in the rooms, no possibility to open the windows due to many insects outside - a real nightmare.
the second day we spent in Taita Hills and for the night we stopped in Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge - this one was perfect. Food, accommodation, night safari in the park - everything was excellent.

To sum it up - very many different animals, excellent organization of our safari, friendly drivers, very good contact with Julius and his assistant Virginia, very good price (excellent value for money), we can recommend Julius Tsafaris to everybody.

We travelled to Kenya in Feb 2014 and prior to travelling I had researched the potential for safari trips. It became apparent that the usual tour operators were not the best offering.
A name that continued to crop up in a positive fashion was that of Julius T Safari's.

I made contact with Julius by e-mail asking his advice, his reply was extremely positive and timely, filling me with confidence. Suffice to say, we booked a 2 night, 3 day safari to Tsavo East and Tsavo West. We met Julius and his colleague Virginia outside our hotel on the day of our arrival when we paid for the safari and confirmed all details.

We then went on our safari with our driver and guide, Nico who was superb. I cannot speak highly enough of him, his knowledge, customer service and commitment was excellent, he wanted to please us and make our trip one to remember.

We were the only 2 people within our vehicle, which was a real positive and as promised by Julius when we made the booking. We felt sorry for the conventional tour operators vehicles who definitely crammed the max numbers into their vehicles.

The safari trips will stay within our memories for a very long time, enhanced by Nico and his desire to ensure we achieved the maximum wildlife sightings. Thanks Nicholas.
