OK, admittedly we mixed a lot more into our two and a half weeks than just game safaris, but African Springs Safaris took care of all the reservations and transportation for the entire trip. We also stayed at the beach in Mombasa, and accomplished a medical/dental mission at several sites throughout the country. African Springs Safaris has a great network of connections at the best game resorts, so we stayed at some incredible places, eating like kings, and viewing wildlife from our lodges and the African Springs vehicles. The rooms were extremely comfortable, right above watering holes or other features. The meals were largely buffets, with incredible spreads of fresh local fruits, African and Indian dishes, and great desserts. Really great local knowledge and vehicles kept us all feeling safe and really close to the wildlife! We saw innumerable elephants, buffalo, and the other exotic animals, and loved the big cats (dozens of lions, one cheetah) best!

My husband and I recently went on our Honeymoon. I had used African Springs Safaris in the past and was well pleased, so it only stood to reason that I used them for such a special trip. My husband and I were treated really well. Kim DeWitt helped me plan our trip, from the biggest of details down to the smallest. We didnt have to worry about transportation, hotel details, connecting flights, or anything. Although we didn't see any Leopards (my favourite!), we were able to see a lot of animals. Our guide, Jonathan, was attentive to what we were looking for, and worked with us on timing for game drives. We had the best time! We also had Kamunge as a driver. I would highly recommend African Springs Safaris for your trip! You will not be disappointed!Our honeymoon was beyond memorable, and it would not have been as perfect as it was without Kim and Kamunge! Kim helped me fall in love with Africa when I went on my first Medical Mission in 2012, and she helped me introduce my husband to it this trip... and he is now a Kenya for lifer! Thank you African Springs Safaris

My family and I feel so very blessed to have connected with African Springs Safaris 5 years ago and have enjoyed 5 July's of visiting Kenya. This year, we were fortunate enough to see a leopard (45 mins of viewing) as well lions, elephants, hippos, etc...If you are considering a safari, I would highly recommend African Springs Safaris as you will be taken care of and treated like family!

Everything was so well organized and accommodations were excellent. I feel the trip was quite reasonable and definitely recommend it!

I am beyond satisfied with the trip I just took through African Springs Safari. Kim was so helpful and responsive in helping us to plan our trip and getting all of the arrangements made. She worked with me to develop an itinerary to visit the parks and see the animals that interested us most, within our budget. Once we were in Kenya, Kamunge served as our incredible driver and guide. So much of your experience on safari depends on having a great guide and Kamunge was awesome! He was able to take us to the best viewing spots in all of the parks and helped to spot some elusive animals including cheetahs, leopards and the black rhino. His interest in birding also enriched our wildlife viewing.
Thank you Kim and Kamunge for the safari of a lifetime! African Springs Safari is reasonably priced and will set you up with excellent accommodations. The lodges were beyond my expectations and the service and food in the lodges was great! The customer service provided by Kim and Kamunge is very personal and they will do what it takes to earn your trust and assist you with planning the safari you have always dreamed of taking. I will definitely use African Springs Safaris for any future trips I take to the region and will recommend them to family, friends and coworkers.

Kim and Kamunge know how to organize a great trip at a great price and there's no better way to tour Kenya than what African Springs Safaris has to offer. This is where service meets Savannah. I was able to access so many parts of Kenya that I would never have been able to visit otherwise, getting to meet the people, learn bits of the languages, and see many beautiful animals. Kim has access to resorts and adventures that only a Kenyan might know, but she brings the ease of communication and understanding that rivals any other organization - along with top of the line drivers! Thank you Kim and Kamunge for the many amazing adventures with African Springs Safaris.

Having never traveled to Kenya, African Springs Safaris was a brilliant medium to further appreciate the exotic landscape and wildlife found throughout Africa. We saw buffalo, lions, cheetah, elephants, black rhinos, and so much more! The trip offers a interesting way to not only see the animals in their natural habitat but to also learn about the unique characteristics of the wildlife individually. You are accompanied by extraordinary guides that continually teach you about the area and wildlife regarding topics like migrations patterns, animal predation, speed, size, and character of animals, and so many other things! Because this trip is such an overload of amazing sights and great information I have decided I must come back the summer of 2015 to further absorb all African Springs Safaris has to offer me!

As a first time traveller to Africa I had no idea of what to expect when I decided to go to Kenya. All I was able to tell Kim was that I wanted an adventure I couldn't possibly forget. Within hours I was set to join a group venturing deep into masaai land and summiting Mt Kenya.

The professionalism and knowledge of the guides are unmatched, as I learned more about biology on my Mt Kenya summit than I ever did in class. I was given the opportunity to experience Kenya's rich culture from the locals, and view the big five on the savannah. I received friends from all over the world and was greeted by the warmest hospitality. I wouldn't trade my adventure for anything.

African Springs Safaris hand tailored my journey through Kenya and brought me an experience you can only read about in books elsewhere. They have my utmost gratitude for an amazing journey and I'd sincerely recommend African Springs Safaris to anyone.

African Springs Safaris offers a unique safari experience. This organization takes great pride in their work and they deliver on their promises. I have no reservations recommending this group to any and all people. I have safaried three times in Kenya and I would not choose another organization to travel with. From my arrival in Nairobi to the various game parks, this group does it right and if you are considering an African safari - they are the ones to book with. They provide a high quality experience at outstanding prices. You will not regret booking your safari with African Springs!....

We visited the Maasai Mara and our drivers and guides brought us close to the animals. Their knowledge enabled us to view prides of lions, cheetah, buffalo, elephants, giraffes, hippo, black rhino, crocodiles along with numerous other animals (too many to count and name).

I was impressed by both the breadth and depth of knowledge of the guides and found myself just wanting to listen to the information being given.

We were treated to outstanding service and accommodations...they took care of it all!!!

I give this group my full endorsement and I have already booked a July 2015 safari.

He and Kamunge kept in constant contact as they both searched for animals, and we saw many species including 4 of the big five. They also organized a lovely picnic on the Mara allowing us to eat within viewing distance of herds of zebra and wildebeest, yet absolutely safe. We were fortunate to be in the Mara during the great wildebeest migration and the herds were amazing.

We stayed at Sarova Mara Game Camp which is an experience in itself. You will find the most elegant tents in the world with extraordinary service. The food was outstanding as well, with familiar as well as exotic items to savor.

I will not hesitate to book with African Springs Safaris for my next trip.

WOW! All I can say is Wow! It was the most amazing trip I have ever taken and I plan on going back as soon as I can! I had never been out of the US before I went on the mission trip with Kim, the group and Kumunge. I was a little nervous about the unknown but soooo excited at the same time. I knew Kim was experienced with Kenya since she grew up there and has lived there too and Kumunge is a great help and great driver so I wasn't worried, I knew I was in good hands. I didn't know the language there at all but hukuna matata, no worries:) The people there are the nicest, most friendliest, most helpful that I had ever met or will ever meet! Calling out Jambo Jambo!(Welcome Welcome!) The food was out of this world! I wish so much I couldve brought it back with me! I couldn't tell you what it was but it was the best food I had ever eaten! It was not only very very tasty but also very healthy being homegrown fruits and vegetables, beans, tortilla-like bread, mangos, lots of mango in everything. Would you believe I never cared for mango before I went to Africa? I couldn't get enough over there! It was so yummy! The safari trips were so much fun to look for and see so many wild animals and birds Ive never seen before. I have always loved going to see the animals at the zoo but never will be the same again. To see those magnificent huge elephants and giraffes, and zebras running around free without a care in the world of being shot (besides the awful poachers!) is how God intended it to be and was so wonderful. I couldn't soak it all up enough!I highly recommend it and I WILL be going back!

We booked with African Springs as a follow-up to a wonderful two week Mission Trip in Kenya. They considered every detail of our situation, and had us covered from the moment our Mission trip ended until we were deposited safely at the airport. Their top concern was our comfort, safety and enjoyment during our stay.

Because we only had a few days for our safari, Kim suggested we stay at the Emakoko, http://www.emakoko.com which is located just on the perimeter of Nairobi National Park. It could not have been more perfect. We were assigned our own driver for the entire stay (Sylvester) and he drove us on safari through the park as well as into town for some sightseeing, a visit for tea at Giraffe Manor, and a tour of the Karen Blixby Museum. Sylvester was very knowledgable about all of the wildlife, and where to best spot them. The food at Emakoko was outstanding, and we ate our eals outdoors on a lovely open porch which provided us additional opportunities to see wildlife. Our room was beautiful and quite luxurious and the owners of the Emakoko were simply outstanding in every way. They have a lovely property and work hard to be ecologically good stewards of the land and respectful of the wildlife around them. It is impossible to believe that this beautiful national park with so much wildlife is located within an hour of the Nairobi Airport!!

Kim (with African Springs) gave us several suggestions on how to best use our limited number of days. She was immediately available to answer any questions, and because she has lived in Kenya and has partners who are Kenyan, we knew we were in good hands. The wildlife we saw just in Nairobi National Park alone was amazing (and this was after we had already spent two weeks in the Maasai Mara). African Springs' personal service was the highpoint of a wonderful trip to Kenya. I will be using them again when we return and would highly recommend them to friends. A Five Star trip with African Springs!!

Joining the Medical & Dental Mission trip/vacation in Kenya was an experience of a lifetime. The Kenyan people are warm, inviting and kind with such a spirit of humble gratitude. Special thanks to African Springs Safari who meticulously arranged every detail of our trip. With Kim, raised in Kenya and Kamunge, a native Kenyan, one can only benefit from their knowledge, expertise and love of the country. They know Kenya like the back of their hand and will make sure to bring every opportunity to the traveler to create a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience. Our accommodations were outstanding at every stop and the food was incredible! We visited the Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge at Taita Hills, the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort on the coast at Mombasa and of course, the Maasai Mara...and who knew tented accommodations could be so elegant at the Mara Game Camp! The Aberdare Country Club and The Ark are incomparable and a must if visiting Kenya. The game drives are beyond description. My son and his fiancée are now planning a wedding/honeymoon arranged by African Springs Safari... I know they will have an unforgettable experience and memory!.... Asante sana!
