My family of 5 have recently returned from a fantastic safari with Freddy Safaris at the beginning of July. I initially contacted a number of tour operators, but Freddy was the most reliable at responding and the best value for money. After some correspondence with Freddy, I decided on a 7 night/8 day safari spending 2 nights in Amboseli, 1 night at Lake Nakuru and 4 nights in the Massai Mara.
As promised Freddy welcomed us at Nairobi Airport, with James our guide, and even took us to our hotel in Nairobi where we were staying for 2 nights prior to our safari. This was very welcome as arriving late at night in a strange country can be a bit daunting.
The game parks we visited offered a good variety with something different to see each day.
Special thanks to James our guide who was professional and knowledgeable but also remained good humoured and friendly even after 8 days of driving (and there is a lot of driving over 8 days) He also managed to find a special highlight each day such as a pride of lions, rhino or a family of cheetahs. The photo opportunities are almost endless and we now have over 1,000 photos as a reminder of our holiday.
Overall, a fantastic experience and we can definitely recommend Freddy for your Kenya safari.

We booked a 7 days/ 6 nights private safari in June with Freddy - Everything from the beginning to the end was perfectly organized.
It started with the contact before our trip: Freddy always replied promptly, made us offers for all the different combination of lodges/ camps we requested for comparison and answered all our questions. As we contacted many other tour operators we can say, that this is not always the case.
In the end we decided to go with Freddy because of the professional contact together with the very reasonable price- and we had no regrets.
We spent 1 night in Tsavo West (Kilaguni Serena), 2 Nights in Amboseli (Ol Tukai) and 3 nights in the Massai Mara (Mara Explorer). In Tsavo West and Amboseli we went with one of Freddy`s drivers (Beka) in a very comfortable, huge jeep for the 4 of us. Beka did a great job: Very good knowledge of wildlife, always friendly with a good sense of humor. In the Massai Mara we had one of the drivers of the Mara Explorer Camp (Joseph) and we were perfectly satisfied as well. The wildlife we saw in the 3 parks was really amazing.
Altogether the whole safari was fantastic and we can only recommend everyone to book your safari with Freddy.

We just returned from a 5 night/ 6 day Amboseli, Lake Naivasha and Massai Mara family safari (2 adults and 3 children under 10) with Freddy Safari and we had a great experience. From the first day we started researching safari companies, Freddy was the only one who responded within minutes and gave us all the information we requested. The price was very reasonable compared to other companies I contacted and he gave me some different budget and comfort options. The safari itself was perfectly organised. Freddy and the driver met us at the airport in Nairobi where we took care of all organizational things and discussed the final details. The driver was very professional and went out of his way to make the drives comfortable also for the children. During the game rides, the driver was very alert and wanted to make it the best possible experience for us. General summary: great route, lovely lodges, a safe driver, value for money and a very professional tour operator. We would certainly recommend Freddy Safari for longer tours in Kenya. Greeting from the Germans in Addis Ababa.
