My boyfriend and I went on two 1-night safari's with Katuta. In August we went to Tsavo-East and in October to Tsavo-west. Both safari's were amazing! Katuta was a kind, funny and knowledgable tour guide. He was very punctual, friendly and knew a lot about basically everything regarding the country, the park and the wildlife. Also, he knew when to... More

We had a 4 day safari in Tsavo west & East. All of our rooms had a view on a waterhole which was amazing(!). Every morning we had a game-drive, lunch in the next lodge and another afternoon gamedrive. Our driver stopped at a nice location to watch the sun and we could enjoy a nice glass of wine.

The safari was great. Katuta did a good job as a guide. We saw beautiful animals, and the nature was unique. We slept at the lodge, which was good. A bit expensive for two backpackers, but we decided to go anyway. Katuta was very kind and helpful, great guy.

Had a great tour to Shimba Hills with Katuta and his colleague. They came to our cottage for a very good and individual preparation. We had a nice day with good tour guides, saw many animals and had a wonderful walk to Sheldrick Falls and a pleasing entertainment by friendly people. My highest recommendation!

We have booked two safaris with Katuta, 3 days Tsavo and Amboseli and Masai Mara 3 days, it was fantastic and the guides and the accommodations were fantastic. The guides took us close to all animals and we havespotted the big five. Reliable address and everything can be arranged because Katutas good contacts, a perfect address to book safaris.

We’d never done a Safari, our first one with Katuta was an awesome experience. One of those things which it’s difficult to do justice in a short review; you have to do yourself to appreciate. Our holiday was based on Diani beach to the south of Mombasa, and we did three days in Tsavo East and West staying in Voi... More

We stayed at the Southern Palms on Diani the last two weeks of April. Don't listen to the Thomson Rep's scare-mongering about booking with other operators. Go with Katuta Safari's - Katuta can be found right outside the main gate - just ask for him. We booked a half day Mombassa tour, three days Tsavo East & West staying at... More
