Having researched which safari company we were to use for months and months we opted for F Kings based on their excellent reviews, the fantastic and professional communication from Farid and their very competitive price. We were not disappointed.

As I mentioned above, Farid's communication from the first enquiry all the way through to after the safari was second to none. We paid the deposit into a UK account, thus not having the issue of exchange rate fluctuations and we also paid the balance before we flew to Kenya for our wedding. Each time a receipt was emailed immediately.

The driver Haji was also very good. We had previously done a 4 day safari in Kruger Park in South Africa and we didn't see a single cat. We approached this safari a little more realistically that it's a lottery as to what game you may see. However, having done the 3 days/2 nights Tsavo East and Tsavo West we saw; a male lion with kill, lioness, 2 cheetah, 2 leopards (one being the one which is fed at Ngulia), hyena, hippo, croc and loads of elephants, giraffes, zebra and all the prey animals.

We were very impressed with the whole safari and would highly recommend to others.

After doing much home work for booking our safari, we decided to book with F kings safari, Farid was very easy to communicate with and always answered any questions. We paid the deposit by bank transfer and the balance a week before we went to Kenya. We can't recommend F Kings enough, we were collected from our hotel as agreed and was very well looked after through out the safari, even speaking to Farid on the phone several times to make sure everything ok. Our safari was a 3 day, 2 night safari where we stayed at the Ashnil Mara camp in the Masai Mara, great accomadation and location where we had to fly in. We had the time of our lives on safari, memories that we will never forget, and made even better by how well F.Kings looked after us, thanks Farid, will be back again sometime.

we booked an overnight safari with F King Safaris when over in Malindi. Communication was so smooth with Farid and he made it really simple for us to make the booking. The safari itself was amazing! We even got to see 2 lions at the last minute! This couldn't have happened without our great tour guide.
I would recommend f kings to anyone looking to do a safari whilst in Kenya. Ps accommodation was also top class, and as for the buffet.. Yum!

We (2 female travellers) booked a bespoke 8 day tour with Farid. We had the best adventure. We covered the Masi Mara, Amboseli, Sweetwater, Lake Nakuru and Tsavo West The lodges were all of a very high standard. I recommend the Serena Resort Lodges. We upgraded to a jeep which I recommend as it is more spacious and comfortable as alot of the roads are unpaved. The vehicle was well maintained and cleaned everyday.

Our driver/guide was brilliant. Knowledgable, easy going, and flexible. If we wanted to stop to watch or change our itinerary nothing was too much trouble. We say plenty of game. The saw the top 5 - lions every day and even gave our guide a top 10 list for extra challenge which we achieved seeing wild dog, black and white rhino, and cheetah.

We felt very safe, as all lodges had 24hour security. Farid checked in often to ensure everything was ok.Organising was easy. Start time, transfers were always on time Communication is very prompt, although sometimes you need to clarify points. Check payment options so you know what works best for you due to US FX rate changes. Their quote was very competitive. I highly recommend F King Safari for a Safari.
