We had the most wonderful experience on our wildlife safari in Kenya. After much research we decided to book our safari with a company called JT Safaris who are based in Mombasa. I was slightly concerned of booking and sending my deposit to a company in Mombasa which I knew nothing about other than other reviews on trip advisor, so many say they are the top safari operator in Mombasa I can assure they are not, we saw other companies using old camper van type vehicles with people crammed in and not being able to view the wildlife, and drivers not bothering to assist you in viewing the wild animals. I am so glad I asked for a private jeep for my family. Our driver from JT Safaris name was Mathias...he was a top safari man and could spot animals from a far distance. We saw elephants, zebra, lions and cubs, hyena, giraffe, jackal, wildebeest, hippos, impala etc, Mathias also taught us so much about the wildlife in Kenya and everyday life Africa. Everything that I requested via email to Julius Tact was taken care of from the meeting point, the time, the jeep and the driver. Our accommodation on our wildlife safari was faultless we loved every lodge that we stayed in for different reasons.
Thanks to JT Safaris and his team esp Mathias we booked another safari while we was still in Mombasa as we enjoyed it so much.. Would we return to Kenya-YES.. Would I book with JT Safaris again-YES..Would I say Julius Tact Safaris is a top safari operator-YES..Would I recommend a holiday in Mombasa-YES..
If you have any questions regarding your safari trip to Kenya or JT Safaris I will gladly help.

We stayed here on the 2nd night of our safari, this is a great hotel. Rooms are luxuriously appointed, food and service impeccable. The location is simply breathtaking, right in front of their own water hole. We watched zebras, impalas, monkeys and buffalo there and could hear lions roaring in the distance (the hotel will wake you up if they come to the hole during the night). Truly impressive.

My daughter and I stayed here for our last night on a 3 day safari in Tsavo East and West. We certainly left the most luxurious lodge till last. After having read the reviews on here I thought we would be in for a treat. We certainly were.
The room was everything one could want. Wonderful views over the waterhole and mountains - and there were plenty of sockets to enable us to charge up all our camera batteries. Comfortable beds with mosquito nets and a fan that kept us cool all through the night. (Contrary to what a recent reviewer has written). Two sinks in the bathroom. Flannels too! The shower could have been slightly more powerful, but that’s my only (little) complaint. From our experience the lodge was bug free too.
The staff was excellent; the pool was sparkling and refreshing and the food, service and ambience second to none. The view over the waterhole from the bar and restaurant area was wonderful and there are animals aplenty. During our evening game drive we were lucky enough to see two lionesses with their cubs - and a leopard!
It’s no surprise that this place is ranked No 1 in Tsavo West. Ten out of ten. Would recommend you stay here!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room which was fine, but by all accounts, rooms higher up have better views

This was my seventh visit in the last sixteen years. Standards continue to improve. The bedrooms have recently been fully refurbished and are now at an exceptional standard. The lodge has a unique setting with all the public areas and rooms overlooking the extensive water holes. The views are far reaching and fascinating with Kilimanjaro, the Shitani lava flow, and the Chyulu Hills all competing for attention.
Food selection and service in the dining room cannot be faulted. Staff throughout are very efficient and attentive. I spent so much time catching up with old friends and making new ones. This lodge is not only in a fantastic location but extremely well run and managed. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Room Tip: I suspect all rooms are good.
