Ringo Adventure Safaris is a local tour company based in Diani Beach south of the Kenyan Coast. When one thinks of a safari, one thinks of Africa, specifically east Africa. Images of wildlife, the sun, endless golden terrain, exotic flora and fauna, tropical sandy beaches, strong smiling people with mystical lifestyles and traditions all come to mind. The beauty of the bush and excitement of a safari are what makes an African safari such a magical experience. Our safaris are done using the custom built safari mini vans and the 4x4 jeeps. We do pull in ( Joining) safaris and private safaris to fit ones needs, desire and budget. WELCOME - WILLKOMMEN - ACCUEIL - BENVENUTO

We took a safari this year in August, followed-up by a trip to Zanizbar post the Safari. Hamisi the owner was very responsive and arranged everything as what we had planned. Steven who was our driver through out the stay was an excellent guide/driver who knew the mara trail very well. The key to good safar with any operator is... More

My wife and I chose Ringo Safaris since they seemed to be reputable and trustworthy to do business with. I paid an advande of USD 1900 in total before leaving Sweden.

Last February we booked a two-day safari and one day snorkling with Ringo Safari's. Based on Hamisi's advice (he is the owner of Ringo Safari's) we went to Taita Hills, a beautiful park close to Tsavo. We saw lot of elephant, antilope, giraffe, lion, buffalo and thousands of birds. The game drives were well organized and according to expectations, the... More

We wanted to go on safari and combine this with a beach holiday. We are retired and time is not an issue for us. We spoke with various companies in Tanzania and Kenya who were quoting us ridiculous costs for a 7 day safari and short beach holiday. We saw a 4 weeks all inclusive deal to Mombasa with Thomson...

In September I booked a 3-day safari to Amboseli and Tsavo East parks with Ringo Safaris. The itinerary clearly stated that there would be 2 game drives on the first day, 3 on the second and 1 on the third day. However, Ringo Safaris refused to honour this, blaming a recent change in Kenyan Wildlife Services’ policies that they said... More

We pre-booked our 3 day Masai Mara Air Safari from the UK with Ringo Tours about a month in advance. We decided on Ringo Tours as Hamisi was quick to respond to our questions and was clear in his answers. We had contacted a couple of other tour companies but could not get straight answers regarding various lodges and pricing.... More
