Booked a last minute Safari to Kenya, to take advantage of terrific airfares from the States and to get ahead of the crowds, once people rush back to Africa to see the amazing wildlife, geography, and kind people. Odyssey navigated every detail - took the time to interview me and match what they learned to the type of accommodations and safari experience I was looking for. On a scale of 1-10, in multiple factors, they scored 10 each time - it was a flawless (and relaxing) trip.

What can I say! I definitely am blown away by Odyssey Safari. Before even arriving to Kenya Lucy was prompt in emailing us back and forth regarding the safari and what we would need for our visit. Everything was wonderful from the moment we were picked up from the airport by our tour guide Jackson who was on time at the airport and was waiting with a sign with our names on it. Jackson explained the plan everything that was going to be happening within the next few days before we left for our safari . The next day the tour manager, Jackson and Lucy provided us an itinerary of our 8 day safari. They were patient and kind and answered all of our questions. Jackson was great as our safari driver! Jackson was always prompt and always informing of the next days schedules. Jackson knew the best times to start and end or safari’s so we could see all animals. Jackson was incredibly knowledgeable about facts about the animals, the culture and the environment. We were able to see all big five animals up close and person. Jackson knew all the best parts of the parks to see each animal. Jackson made sure that we had an incredible visit on our safari from the game rides to make sure we were comfortable in the lodges we stayed at. I will definitely be back again and will be requesting Jackson as my tour guide.

I would also highly recommend Odyssey Safaris for anyone looking to go to Africa. The hotels were clean, and considering that they had been closed for a year, they were in good order. The food was good and every member of the staff I encountered at each hotel, were kind and helpful. I even had an escort walk me around Lake Naivasha so I could photograph the giraffes and zebras without interference. And a second escort walk Dan and me to the lake to photograph the Hippos.

I will direct others who wish to go on a safari to your company. I have a few friends who are now looking to arrange a safari!

Thank you for your exemplary organization of our safari and for having an amazing guide on staff.

We just returned how from one of the most incredible journeys I have every experienced, and I have explored hundreds of cities around the globe. An African Safari has always been a lot the top of my “must do” list, but timing and the expense have always held me back.

My takeaways for those considering the trip: 1) Odyssey Safaris was a pleasure to work with, and we will book more trips through them 2) Take advantage of the upgrades and excursions — they only add to the experience and your ability to relax and truly envelop yourself, and 3) Have an open mind — Hakuna Matatta.
