What people are saying about Odyssey Safaris

T Pippian

Odyssey Safari’s turned our “vacation” into a lifetime of memories. We handed them our wishlist and they made it happen. There were a few bumps in the road along the way because of the airline personnel shortage but Odyssey stepped in and sorted airline as well as safari schedules.

Our time with our guide Erastus will long be a favorite memory. His knowledge, patience, service and friendly demeanor enhanced the awe inspiring landscape of animals and adventure.

Odyssey was recommended to us by a friend and I will unreservedly recommend them to anyone.


This was the best vacations we have been on! Odyssey staff help us create the right safari experience for our family. Our guide was exceptional and accommodations were perfect.


We recently took a 10 day private safari to Kenya with Odyssey Safaris. There were 11 of us including family and friends on this safari. From the time we interacted with Mark and Lucy to set out the itinerary to the various conversations we had prior to the trip, we knew that Odyssey would provide the best services possible. The entire experience was amazing. The hotel and camp accommodations, food, transportation and game drives were superbly organized and top class. The guides, Simon and Jackson, were super knowledgeable and very accommodating of the requests. We were able to witness all the Big 5 and more animals, various bird species and the natural scenery in the Amboseli National Park, Lake Naivasha and the Masaai Mara National Park. We would highly recommend Odyssey Safaris for anyone thinking of organizing such Safari trips.


Odyssey Safari and our guide, Stephen, provided us with a wonderful, informative and complete experience. Our travel, lodging and game drives were all expertly managed.All of our special requests, and all of the details, were taken care of and we were able to relax and enjoy our experience.

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 was great as our safari driver! We were able to see all big five animals up close and person. 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 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.

K Bohman

It was the trip of a lifetime! Odyssey made everything seamless and stress free. They provided such a list of extra things to do- the tours were top notch, hotel accommodations and food were above and beyond!!!
