We have been on many safaris in Kenya over the years with different companies, but El Moran Safaris topped them all. In our opinion El Moran Safaris cannot be beaten from an organisation point of view, communication and fun.

We booked our safari from Mombasa, on line through El Moran Safari's website a few weeks before our holiday, which by the way, is a very informative website. We received answers to our questions promptly and thoroughly and were not disappointed one bit with any aspect of our booking.

During our Safari - the transport was always on time, the lodges were luxurious, the guides were great fun and the food amazing !!

We cannot fault anything with our Safari, we had an amazing time and would recommend El Moran Safaris to anyone.

I booked with El Moran during my stay in Mombasa in 2011 and there was no other safari company to consider when I returned to Kenya in 2013. Why? Because I don't believe any other company could have given us the one to one service that El Moran provides. During 2011 my sister and I did 2 safaris, one to Amboseil and Tsavo East, then Tsavo East and West.

Moses, with whom we booked the trips is an amazing person. None of our requests were too much trouble for him, even when we returned in 2013 and asked specifically for Coleman as our guide/driver who had taken us on the game drives during our 2011 trip. Coleman is very knowlegable and enthusiastic, friendly, funny and caring whilst still remaining professional at all times.

Staying at Aruba Lodge and Serena Kilaguni during our Tsavo East/West safari, I was amazed at the quality of the accommodation. At Aruba we had the water hole right at the back of our room and you could hear the animals moving throughout the night and the elephants calling. The dining room at Kilaguni looked out over the water hole and the sprawling plains. We saw the elephants, zebras, water buffalo, wart hogs etc whilst we were having our lunch. Whilst at Kilaguni I left the patio doors open whilst getting ready and turned round to see a rather large baboon sitting on the patio wall. Never moved so qucik in my life but what an awesome experience.

We also visted the volcanic Chyulu Hills whilst staying here.

Prior to our return to Kenya in 2013 I contacted El Moran and Moses and we worked out an itinerary that fitted what I was looking to achieve during this visit as the company is so flexible to meeting the requeirements of the customer. This time we booked a 2 night 3 day safari which was the Tsavo East Saltlick safari. Here we stayed once again at the wonderful Ashnil Aruba Lodge in Tsavo East and the Sanctuary of Taiti Hills at the Sarova Saltlick Lodge. OMG, what a picture to behold when you first set eyes on the lodges at Saltlick. as you drive across the plains. Set upon stilts the lodges are stunning. With a water hole that you are able to look down at the wildlife on from your rooms or going to down to the underground viewing tunnel this is a truly spectacular place to stay.

On returning to my hotel, I had another excursion (Cultural Visit) booked with the holiday company that I had travelled with. During this time another couple were looking for safari companies to book a trip with. I did not hesitate to recommend El Moran due to the intergity of this company, the service they provide and the professionalism of their staff.

I recommened the organisation to other travellers whom I met whilst on this visit who were seeking out safari companies, particularly emphasising the bespoke service El Moran offers.

My sister and I are looking to return in 2014 and once again our company of choice will be El Moran.

After eight long years out of motherland kenya,a decent five nights /six days combined safari was well deserved.The best thing i did was to chose El Moran safaris.They tailor made an itinerary for my wife,two sons and i, The tour guide was very informative with vast knowledge about Tsavo, Amboseli and Mara.We had the best time in my life,My eldest son Quincy now wants to relocate back to kenya hahahah.I WOULD RECOMMEND EL MORAN TO ANYONE FOR THEIR GOOD SERVICE AND PROFESSIONALITY.

We have been on numerous safaris with El Moran Safaris - Private Day Tours, and we cannot recommend them enough. From the moment we were picked up to reluctantly we were dropped back at the hotel nothing was too much trouble. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and enthusiastic about all the wildlife you will encounter. The organization was perfect, no problems encountered on the trip and we will not hesitate to use them again on our next trip.
