We had a fantastic two day safari (Tsavo east & west) with F.King Tours. Stayed in the wonderful Kilaguni Serena lodge (Tsavo west) (we would recommend it to anyone). Our driver Eric did everything to make us happy. We saw 4 of the big 5 (no rhino). Eric did his very best for us to see lions, we saw about 7 of them.
Had our lunch at Voi Lodge the first day: what a breathtaking view!!! We saw loads of elephants, zebra's, monkeys etc close to the waterhole!
The service of Farrid King was excellent.
We also did a mombasa tour with the very friendly driver, Abdul.

me+my other half stayed at the bamburi beach hotel at the start of feb...i had already booked our 3day safari with F.Kings before leavin the UK after seeing all the good reports on trip advisor...i paid a small deposit to his bank account and agreed to meet him when we arrived to pay the rest. The experience we had with F.Kings and our excellent driver "Dickson" was superb from start to finish. we first went on a FREE half day tour round Mombasa which was brilliant and he was so knowledgable we learnt alot. he was there on time in the mornin of our safari to pick us up and was friendly helpful and a joy to spend 3 days with. We spotted allsorts on our safari including leopard cheetah lions warthogs etc etc....brilliant!! in fact after we returned to our beach hotel for 1 day we booked with F.Kings the day after to go on a daytrip to Shimba hills+sheldrake falls which was another totally enjoyable day and was looked after very well by "Dickson" once again. we spent a week in kenya and 5 of them days was spent bein looked after by F.Kings. We will be goin back to Kenya on our honeymoon next year(as my boyfriend...now fiancee...proposed to me while we was on safari) and we will definately be getting in touch and hopefully having these again....highly reccommend to anyone wanting the most out of theyr experience in Kenya. Thankyou F.Kings...and especially thankyou Dickson hope to see you next year! xAmazing, top class Safari Experience

We have just returned from Kenya, where we did a 5 day safari with F Kings Tours. The safari covered Tsavo East, Amboseli, Tsavo West and Taita Hills (Salt Lick). I can not recommend enough the great and professional service we received from Farid and his driver Hashim.
I did months of research and many emails back and forward to Farid before booking with him. He replied to my millions of questions quickly and very professionally. He was by far the best one out of the many companies I contacted in Kenya. I wanted to book with someone local, as I didn't want my money going to the huge faceless organisations that you get here in the UK.
So to the safari, what can I say. It was the most amazing and wonderful experience of my life. I was so so sad when it came time to leave. We stayed in top class lodges, Ashnill Aruba, Amboseli Serena, Kilaguni Serena and finally Salt Lick. These were all of the highest quality and we couldn't have asked for better service.
Our driver Hashim, was very knowledgeable, helpful and always got us to the best views of the animals. We saw the big 4, missed the rhino. But we saw about 40 lions, 3 cheetahs, 1 leopard and heaps heaps more. I have to say having the private van was such a bonus, we saw vans crammed with people and were so thankful we had more space. Another thing I wanted to mention, as small as it is. The tyres on our van were proper all terrain tyres and not balding road tyres which we saw on many of the other vans. Overall it was a once in a lifetime experience and I couldn't be happier with the service we received from Farid and his team at F Kings.
Farid also arranged our transfers to and from Zanzibar, again this was a perfect service with no troubles.
Finally, if you are thinking of booking a safari, look no further. F Kings is the way to go. You will not regret it. Thank you again Farid and team. Hope to deal with you again in the future.
If anyone has any questions about my safari experience with F Kings please contact me, I have listed my email below.

We arranged by internet to go on a two-day safari when we arrived in Mombasa. We were pickled up in port when we arrived by boat, and paid before the trip at the company garage. The van was simple but very good for the safari and the price was excellent with lodging and meals included. Everything worked out so well - information by internet was easy, we could chose our lodging and how we wanted to plan our trip. Thanks to good advise from Mr. Sadik, we chose to go two days to Tsavo East - and during dry season this prooved to be an excellent choice, with lots of time in the park - and more animals than we could ever have asked for! Lots and lots of elephants, giraffes, water buffaloes, zebras. We even saw lions, thanks to our excellent guide Eric! He did his best to make our trip perfect and was very skilled about the animals. Thank you for a great memory !Totally exceeded our expectations! Simply awesome safari experience

Our 8 day Masai Mara, Nakuru, Amboseli, Tsavo safari was a dream. F Kings truly lived up to the excellent reviews from the first email enquiry. Farid was really prompt in answering all my questions and specially designed an itinerary with our own jeep (really excellent - make sure to book one) just for the two of us. I was slightly apprehensive to wire the deposit to his bank account at first, but it turned out to be a breeze paying the remaining cost of the trip upon arrival (common practice here). From driver Khamis coming to Nairobi airport to meet us until our drop off at Mombasa airport, we knew the safari was going to be special every single minute. We were right! Everything was taken care of. He is very experienced and knowledgeable - we saw leopards twice, lions bringing down a buffalo, the big five at every stop and more! Ask for Khamis when you book. Thanks F Kings for a wonderful safari!
