What people are saying about Kiambu County

This was a fabulous tour and Stephen was an excellent guide. Experiencing these animals so closely and learning if their struggles and triumphs was lovely. I am now the proud sponsor mom of two baby elephants! I plan on going in this tour again before I leave.

Clement was a great guide. On time, knowledgeable, flexible, good driver. Vehicle was a bit worn (a poptop minivan), but worked fine for 3 people.

The elephant facility was utterly fantastic. The giraffes were cool bit other than feeding there was nothing wet PSR to do or see

It was a tour where we will be able to see many animals especially some of the big five.

Hotel picked up was on time and the parks timing was excellent.
