The trip.me way of travel
Kenya is a microcosm of Africa, packing in beaches, coral reefs, mountains, deserts, ancient tribes and more. It’s the safari in Kenya, however, that captivates the imagination most.
Kenya safaris attract thousands of tourists from around the globe every year. Many of the parks here are among Africa’s best for safaris. Of particular note are the Masai Mara National Park and the Tsavo West National Park.
On a Kenya safari in Masai Mara National Park you’ll see huge prides of lions stalking the plains, while cheetahs and leopards can also be seen. In Tsavo West National Park safari tours you’ll come across black rhino, cape buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and more.
Kenya/Tanzania Oct 2019 (from Canada)
We travelled to Kenya/Tanzania in Oct 2019. Planning through Soul of Tanzania was a breeze! Lidia was our contact person and extremely helpful. Her responses were prompt and professional. Very flexible with changes to the itinerary or accommodations. And she kept me informed at every step along the way which was very appreciated. Lidia even called to check on us a couple times along our route to ensure things were going well.
The Kenya portion of our trip was provided by Spirit of Kenya.
The vehicle was a van (vs a safari jeep) with a pop up roof. The van was a bit older, but still got the job done.
Raphael was our guide. There were a lot of times we were unable to hear everything he was telling us – mostly because of the noise in the van.
Our accommodations were as expected, permanent tented sites. Clean and comfortable. Meals provided on the site were good. The lunches provided were not as expected. We anticipated a warm lunch as was described through Soul of Tanzania. However what was received were box lunches with a sandwich, piece of chicken and piece of fruit. Good, but a little disappointing.

Elinasi was our guide. He was great! So much information was given to us about the animals and birds that we saw. Lots of interesting facts. Elinasi was very clear with any decisions we needed to make along the way and strived to make our tour exactly what we were looking for…. Including trying to beat our record of 20 lions in a day and finding a couple leopards in a tree for me! (that happened twice!)
The lunches provided were good. It was nice to have the table set with a cloth and dishes and to have a warm meal while others around were having boxed sandwich meals.
Accommodations were what was anticipated (some were better). Permanent tented sites, good meals and some wildlife during the night. Perfect!
Overall, I would recommend Soul of Tanzania to anyone looking for ease of planning and a wonderful safari experience. Be sure to ask for Lidia in the office and Elinasi as your guide.
A 5-day trip to the national parks near Arusha. Everything was very well organized and all the tour guides and their services were excellent.
This traveller just left a 5-star review.
Inge was very prompt in answering our questions, she is very professional with a personal touch . Enjoyed planning the trip with her !
Lidia was amazing, attentive, helpful extremely knowledgeable and her attention to detail was second to none. It was my wife's and son's birthday whilst on safari and she arranged special celebrations on the night of the camps in the Serengeti. she stayed in touch to make sure we were ok and we could always get in touch with the office if we needed anything. The safari she planned with me was built to cater for our needs and she worked hard to make sure all our needs were catered for - I would have no hesitation recommending Lidia !!Read More Read More Less
