Odyssey Safaris Reviews

What people are saying about Odyssey Safaris


This was the best trip I have ever taken. It truly was life changing. Not one aspect of this trip was disappointing. Our guide, Jackson was the most patient and informative guide, I think we could have ever asked for. We saw everything — the big five, a cheetah hunt, herds of elephants, lions, hippos! It was the greatest experience I ever had. No matter what questions we asked, Jackson was so helpful and informative. He was patient when all we wanted to do was watch a cheetah hunt for three hours. He was amazing. Odyssey Safaris is truly the best.

I can’t say enough good things about Odyssey Safaris! The tour guide, Erastus, was amazingly adept at identifying every possible animal, all while navigating the Kenyan countryside in our state of the art off-road land cruiser. I learned so much, and was able to take close up photos of every animal I dreamed of seeing. The accommodations were unbelievably beautiful, spacious, and modern, while maintaining the African charm I was expecting. We visited an authentic Maasai village, where we were treated to dancing, a jumping contest, a tour, and an explanation of their incredible way of life. It was an unforgettable experience that changed my life so much that I went back for a second visit! Thank you, Odyssey Safaris, for opening my eyes to a world of beauty that I couldn’t conceive of until I saw it in person!


Excellent company to deal with, very professional and met our expectations. Erastus was a great guide. Very experienced and knowledgeable. We were travelling with a young family and they were able to provide us with a great family vacation — I would certainly recommend them.
