Discover Safaris was recommended by a friend, and I am so happy we decided to go the Masai Mara with them!
We planned our trip at the last minute, and Triza and Sadru were very patient – Triza guided me through various itineraries and planned our entire trip, we were picked up from Nairobi and dropped back.
Our tour guide was Jackson, and he was wonderful – he chatted with us the whole way and went out of his way to make sure we spotted the Big Five! We stayed at the Mara Leisure Camp, and were very happy with all the arrangements.
Overall, my family and I enjoyed our time very much – and I would definitely recommend planning your trip with Discover Safaris!

Discover Safaris was recommended by my brother-in-law and what a great recommendation it was!
Fatma, Sadru (the owners) and Triza are very professional and easy to communicate with down to the smallest detail including having a sand bag ready for my photography. They also arrange all transportation including meeting us on arrival, and all internal flights. The 11 day itinerary included visiting Amboseli in Kenya and then into Tanzania were we visited Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro ( a must experience), Ndutu for off road tracking, and then into the Serengeti!
Every lodge including the Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp were first class in every way. What really made the Safari such a great experience for us once we hit the road were the 2 driver/guides, John in Kenya and Sifuni in Tanzania. They were very professional, friendly, and accommodating. We enjoyed their company and their knowledge of the local history and traditions in the areas we visited and their incredible ability to track down the animals every day made the safari something we will never forget.
I have no hesitation is recommending Discover Safaris and hope to be back for another amazing safari in the near future.

We went to Amboseli Park by road from Nairobi. While traffic was a challenge, the drive was fine. We stayed at Tortilis Camp. It was phenomenal. The wildlife in Amboseli was likewise phenomenal, where we saw lion, elephant, hippo, Cape buffalo, giraffe, hyena, jackal, ostrich, and many beautiful birds. John was our driver and we highly recommend him.
We even saw Mount Kilimanjaro a few times. While views were not great due to the time of year, we did get some Kodak moments.
Fatma, Sadru and Triza did a great job of organizing the trip. This is the second time we used them but the first in almost twenty years. They continue to be a fantastic outfitter for Kenyan safaris.
We will return!
Discover Safaris has twice arranged safaris for us. They are exceedingly meticulous in all the arrangements they make. Both safaris have been free of any mishaps and we have always felt safe with their with their drivers/guides in particular Sifuni. I would thoroughly recommend this firm.

When I asked this brilliant safari company to put together a safari last January for our extended family of 17 I could not have imagined then what a truly wonderful job they would do! I was guided in our choice of safari by Sadru whose family owns the company. Having travelled quite extensively in Kenya in the past we spent a lot of time discussing the various merits of a safari in Tanzania as well as Kenya and Sadru’s patience in organising such a large party and with such a varied age group was boundless! In the end we flew from Nairobi to Intrepids camp in Samburu where their wonderful drivers met us off the flight and accompanied us on a memorable few days in the most beautiful game park. We saw far more game than we expected including incredible close encounters with leopard and herds of elephant and much more. Sadru had specifically recommended a stay at Soisian Ranch on the Laikipia plateau. It took us about 4 hours in our 3 landcruisers to drive there and worth every minute. Our lovely drivers left us there to enjoy a 2 night stay we shall never forget! We encountered a rare pack of wild dogs, hyena, lion, leopard, elephant and a lot else beside! We enjoyed the whole safari experience immensely and finally flew back to Nairobi before transferring to the coast for the rest of our holiday. Discover Kenya looked after us every inch of the way right from meeting us at Nairobi airport and the final transfers as we left. Nothing was too much trouble including holding all our coast luggage while on safari and then swapping all of that and holding our safari luggage (this helped with all the light aircraft weight restrictions). I wouldn’t hesitate using this company again and again and God willing our family will do just that in the future! Thank you Fatma, Sadru, Pousline, Big John, and all your staff !

This is the second time that I have arranged a safari through Discover Safaris and I am truly impressed that the service and knowledge of the staff is amazing. Although there are many companies in this space, we have been extremely happy with their professionalism. From the inception of planning the trip tailored to our needs, the communication and emails, the friendly and knowledgable guides, the staff meeting us at the airports, the hotel arrangements and overall the ease of dealing with this superb organization is a class in itself. I would highly recommend this company and I thank you for making it so memorable for my son and myself.
Priti & Sandeep
On behalf of everyone, I would like to thank you and your staff and partners for making our vacation a truly memorable experience .
From the minute we landed in Kigali to the time we left Zanzibar, we felt completely pampered and well taken care of. Thank you for adjusting to all our last minute changes and for giving us an opportunity( esp mom) to experience novel adventures. Rahim was very kind and knowledgable and was able to point out a ton of wildlife. The guides in Kigali and in Zanzibar were also very helpful and good.
Once again a big thank you from all of us.
Naaz and Fatima Somani and family
Thank you to Fatma, Kasu, Sadru, Triza, JJ and Rahim! We were recommended to you and had a wonderful experience from day one. Triza was excellent in helping plan our perfect trip. It was wonderful to meet Triza, Fatma and Kasu in Nairobi and go through what to expect on our safaris. JJ was wonderful during our stay in Nairobi. Rahim was an excellent guide and we will never forget him. His knowledge and love for the animals was evident and our safaris would not have been the same without him. Thank you Rahim. Fatma, thank you for always staying in touch and making sure we were taken care of at all our other stops throughout Tanzania. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour company and have already told all our friends and family! Keep up the excellent work and all the best.
We planned a trip to TANZANIA in end of June 2016. It was an important trip to me as it was a family trip for the 65th Birthday of my mom and I was travelling with my son (11 years old). So I needed a very safe and well organize trip (safe and secure with a patient guide as my mother and son are French and they speak just little English.)
First I have to say that working on our trip with Triza was so easy, she was present all the time and helping us with all our questions. She was quick in responding and so patient, she helped us to feel at ease about our trip.
Concerning Accommodation, it was excellent. The first Night in Arusha we slept in Zawadi house a very simple and charming house with a small but very nice garden and such a nice and welcoming staff that try to do their best to make us feel at ease and such a nice ‘cuisine’ simple but very good. (a special mention for the Maramboi Camp (that I highly recommend) as the rooms were extremely charming, the staff was so kind and welcoming and the outside was stunning, we loved it (our best experience !!) . We liked a lot also the Kati Kati Camp; very welcoming staff also and the experience was impressive (we slept under tent but it was such a nice adventure, we could hear the lions and Hyenas at night !!)
Our Guide Pius was very nice, calm and helpful. We asked him a lot about animals, and life in Tanzania… He could spoke a little French and made a great effort especially for us ! (It was very nice)
Thanks you again for your professionalism.

Thanks to all at Discover Kenya, particularly Triza, for helping us design a wonderful itinerary for our 2016 visit to Kenya!
Our guides, Francis (Discover Kenya), Norman (Lewa) and Julius (Governor’s) were wonderful, most particularly Francis. Each of them helped us to further our knowledge and understanding of Kenya and the wildlife we encountered. We enjoyed Victor’s company as well as we navigated around Nairobi.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Boma Hotel in Nairobi and every camp on the itinerary…..Ithumba, Tortilis, Lewa and Governor’s. The Boma was perfectly located for visiting the DSWT nursery and access to the airports. At all the safari camps, management and staff were welcoming and gracious. Of particular note, the managing couple at Lewa arranged a private patio dinner one night for us and a hilltop breakfast & hilltop sundowner…quite lovely. Transfers to all of our in country destinations were seamless with both Yellow Wings and Air Kenya.
Again, thank you for everything! We treasure our 25 days in Kenya in June 2016 and are already considering a return trip in 2018. We have and will continue to recommend your services to others.
