Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were seeking a short 3 day safari to Masai Mara to show our kids (ages 11, 10 and 8) the animals of Kenya and the culture of the Masai people.

The head of the YHA Kenya Travel agency worked with me directly on an itinerary which would suit both our budget (limited) and our children's attention spans (also limited).

The head man (James) gave us some options for accommodations and was very flexible regarding timing of game drives and other activities.

He coordinated with a separate group for a hot air balloon safari for the family which the parents loved more than the kids.

James also introduced us to a very knowledgeable, considerate, and skilled driver/guide who possessed nearly 20 years of experience leading safaris throughout East Africa.

Our experience was more positive than we had initially anticipated and we decided to book a second safari trip with YHA two weeks later to see Amboseli and Nairobi National Parks too. (We were in Kenya for about a month).

Between the two safaris in February 2022 we spent many hours together in the safari van/truck so be prepared for that. Hopefully they upgrade that vehicle when we return to Kenya (next year?).

My husband and I and our 4 children 10-17 years took a safari with YHA Kenya Travel. We got the very best service when booking with James, then Jackton our driver/ guide was a stand out! You will not be disappointed if you book with this company. So many laughs and fabulous memories plus the very best game spotting in my 3 times visiting Africa!

James was absolutely amazing! He invited us to stay with his family and we were welcomed with open arms. We had Jactone for the duration of the Safari and couldn’t have asked for a better guide. He knew exactly where to spot the animals and get the best photos, we had a great laugh together and we are forever grateful to YHA for giving myself and my husband memories. We highly recommend YHA and will definitely be using them again when we return.

I had a trip to the Mara with my family during the Easter weekend and it was a great treat. Worked with James and he individually responded to the many queries raised during the planning. He also constantly followed up with calls as we were driven there and also when we arrived to just ensure we were comfortable. I was touched by his concern on whether the children were comfortable during the trip. This kind of attention is rare and more so when one sees its from deep inside a persons heart to want to ensure clients are comfortable.
We also got a great guide by the name of Kennedy who not only knew the best routes on where to find animals but also the names and characteristics of the animals. It was thus not only a fun trip but educational in a big way, especially for the children too.
I highly recommend YHA Kenya for tour planning and other kinds of travel. You will get individualized attention. The team goes out of its way to ensure you are comfortable and definitely get more than value for money.

My family and I had a fantastic and unforgettable experience while at the Mara during the Easter holiday. The trip was professionally planned. Our guide, Ken, was very knowledgeable and professional. We had an awesome time and we shall definitely do Mara again. I highly recommend YHA Kenya Travel Tours as your tour planner.

YHA Kenya Travel Tours & Safaris organised for me a 3 days trekking on Mt. Kenya and it has been an unforgettable experince. I left alone because in that period there weren't other groups to join with. I was a little bit worried about this, but the guide Joseph was very proffesional and attentive to my needs during the trekking. James, the owner of the agency, hosted me the day before and the day after the trekking in Nairobi and his family and him took care of me like a daugther. I'll never forget it.

We had a fist rate experience with both James and our tour guide Ken who both went the extra mile to make sure our trip was up to scratch. James called us whilst on Safari to make sure all was satisfactory and Ken is one of the best guides i have met. He made sure we got to see all of the big 5 in one day, even spotting a black Rhino from around 1 kilometre away and homing in.So well done both. The camp was basic but clean and the tents were very nice and well kept.
If you are after a great Safari experience and can't shell out top lodge dollar then i would highly recommend these guys.
