"My partner and I want on Safari with Kenya Tru Nomads in October 2016. We had a wonderful time and can highly recommend it. We customized our Safari, which was no problem at all, and spend 4 days on the Seychelles 8 days in central and northern Kenya and 5 days on Zanzibar. Even little hick-ups got solved fast and without any problems or stress. For example as we landed we arrived at a different terminal as expected but the airport had people there immediately calling our guide and we got picked up right away. Kenya seems to be very organized when it comes to tourism and they seem very much on top of things concerning tourism overall. We went during off season and were lucky so that it was just us and our guide George driving through Kenya. George was wonderful and we enjoyed every minute of our trip."
"Fantastic service from Faith and our great driver Hussein! Thank you for your patience and for making our trip so enjoyable. We really loved the visits and everything was perfect despite our last minute changes. Thank you Hussein for being always in great mood, smiling and patient with us. What a lovely trip! We will for sure come back again!"
"We had a 10 day tour with them and have nothing but praise for them! The booking process was simple and Faith helped us all the way with our tour choices, providing informative support. Our Driver/guide was Shauri. He was intelligent, articulate, informative and courteous all the way. He is an expert in the field of game safaris. We were a party of 2 with him in a safari Land Cruiser for 10 days and it flew by. There are not that many friends I would be happy to share such a time with but Shauri was a pleasure to share time with. Tru Nomads delivered what the promised and more. I thoroughly recommend them."
"It was our first time in Kenya as a family and we were rather unsure of what to expect . We were well received at the airport by the Representative Faith and proceeded on safari to Amboseli. The food was excellent throughout and was all included in the price. Our favourite was Sentrim Amboseli which is a tented camp with modern facilities and has a great atmosphere. There was a wide variety of animals to view wherever we went and that’s a plus to the agent for being able to anticipate client’s needs. We would thoroughly recommend booking a trip with Kenya Tru Nomads Tours."
"We hired this company to take us to Masai Mara and also to Serengeti. Both worked out as planned. The drivers/guides were very friendly. I would highly recommend Kenya Tru Nomads Tours. I want to particularly recognize our driver Shauri who was so amazing. The lady who planned our trip Faith, she was very knowledgeable and considering it was a budget safari we got more than we had paid for. Bravo Kenya Tru Nomads."
"We stayed at Sopa Lodges in Masai Mara. These lodges were more than adequate, clean, and had very good staff service. What was more amazing were the sizes of the bed. ‘Big’ you are assured of a good night sleep. The game drives were incredible - usually we had 2 each day - there was no shortage of driving in the parks. We saw hundreds of thousands of wildebeest , 12 lions, hundreds of elephants, hundreds of zebras, 5 cheetahs, rhinos, hippos... We took a ride on the lake to see crocodiles. We hiked Hell's Gate. The trip was absolutely spectacular. Hats off to Kenya Tru Nomads Tours and to our guide/ driver Cholda for introducing us to Kenya and providing an experience that will be with my family forever."
"Our Safari with Kenya Tru Nomads was out of this world. The eight days were gorgeous, all the lodges were fantastic, some more luxurious than others (Osero Camp in the Mara was just incredible, the location something out of this world!), but all in all, all the lodges and meals were great. We traveled with a group Jan people, and none of us experienced any health or food issues throughout the trip. Every place we visited was magic, each park with its own beautiful characteristics. Truly it was trip of a lifetime and filled with fun. All the timings were great. Our guide Shauri was very knowledgeable and made our trip more exciting."
"We just returned to the United States from a 12 day trip to Kenya with 6 family members. The staff of this company and the entire crew worked with us to plan every details of our tour. Everything went according to our schedule and without any drawback. During the trip the driver and our tour guide were extremely helpful and respectful. They built the trip with a great balance to accommodate all our needs. We got enough time to enjoy Amboseli national park, Masai Mara game reserve and Tsavo East and West national park. In a word, both the trip and and our travel agent were superb and I will always be using this company. Kudos Kenya tru Nomad."
"I had tried to book the Masai budget tour from Addis Ababa, but due to a glitch could not transfer the advance. However, Faith from Tru Nomads was extremely understanding and helpful and agreed to receive the full payment on arrival. The tour guide John was very friendly and knowledgable, and made the journey very pleasant. The expectations from this tour facilities were limited as is expected from a budget tour. Overall, a wonderful experience."
"We are a belgian family of 5 with 3 children from 15 to 4 years old. We are resident in Kenya. Our guide was extra: driving very well and finding cats hidden in the bush before anybody else. Thanks to him we have spot cheetas and lions more than once. Smile, flexibility, patience, professionalism, extra good guide and driver... Highly recommendend! and at best price!!"
