Testimonials Non-exhaustive list of testimonials for Fred's safaris


I especially thank John who adapted his cooking to my sensitive food allergies and my taste for seasoning. Everything was excellent and his kindness touched us very much. We were impressed by Omar’s eagle eye and his All-Terrain professionalism, which allowed him to find places, always somewhere, for us to take short breaks

A Superb safari led brilliantly by a great trio that gave us a taste of the country and has its scenery ... We fell in love with the camping at first sight and the magic of spending overnights in a tent dazzled us! Animal photography was carried out thanks to the professionalism of Saïd and Matano, whereas John took care of our comfort and well-being at the camp. Thanks to the trio, this experience has been and will remain one of the most wonderful in our life and that of our children, who have become ardent lovers of Africa and its wild life.
A big, big thank you to you and your team and next time, we won’t bat an eyelid to choose you again!

Excellent safari with a very professional guide and a very helpful and cook. Their hospitality and their kindness were key to the success of our stay. The program of visits was respected to the letter and it allowed us to discover a lot of things. Every day we received beautiful surprises. The choice of campsites is well thought out and the short break at the Lodge in Amboseli was very beneficial. The food was varied and of excellent quality. Peter, the cook is a real chef and is always all smiles and highly attentive. Omar is also always concerned about the well-being of his clients. His welcome was immediately warm and friendly. An excellent stay, very well organized and a high quality human relations.

Dubus Family, July 2016

We are delighted with our safari and the few hours spent with the Maasai. We discovered a lot of things and met lots of animals. We missed out on the Rhino and the leopard, a good enough reason to come back. Ahmed taught us a lot about Kenyan history and even a few words in Swahili. Ahmed and Beka make a very good team, thanks to them!

Matano and Salim make a great team. In addition to being a very good safari, the trip was a great human encounter! Thank you. P.S. Komba, the cook made us sumptuous meals each day.

Stephane and Lauren, June 2016

The most beautiful places are the ones that are yet to be discovered. Yet with Rhino Valley Lodge, we have bordered on the extraordinary. A little bit of that original peace that life has made us forget, virginal silence, with our sights set on an immensity that commands humility. A few days full of happiness masterfully orchestrated by Omar, always attentive, always cautious while driving on roads and tracks that are not always well maintained. Faultless organization.

Marylene and Didier, February 2016

Love at first sight at Taita Conservancy and Lake Jipe. Good organization. We spent good times in pleasant places with a good team. We enjoyed walking in Taita as well as the various sunsets. An excellent walk on foot at Crescent Island, a bike ride at Hells Gate to the top. We loved the accommodations.

Betty and Kevyn, November 2015

We were delighted with this safari! Baya is a perfect guide who is not only very welcoming but also has a very good knowledge of the park and its animals. Thanks to his patience we were able to experience exceptional moments. The lodge is very pleasant, the view of the water point is fabulous and the dinner in the company of elephants is unforgettable! Many thanks for these wonderful memories.

Gaelle, August 2015

Flawless safari! Everything was perfect! A well balanced circuit, superb parks, lodges of very good quality! The driver and guide complemented each other and were very professional! We saw some very nice things and we were delighted.

Jérome, February 2015

Thank you very much for this splendid safari. Salim our driver was exceptional, and professional, he was very knowledgeable about places and animals. This holiday remains for me the best vacation I have ever had up to this point. We would therefore want to thank you for the perfect organization of this safari.

Delphine, February 2015

Our Safari was something great!!! The team bonds and works in unity. We ate very well, they quickly realized that we didn’t liked the spaces with too many people. The choice of campsites was very good. The lodge on the second last day was great luxury for us. The best times for us are definitely the wild camping and hearing the animals hovering around our tent at night.

Ghislain and Mary, February 2015

This is the most beautiful experience I have experienced to date. I did not expect to be pleasantly shocked by the change of scenery! I adored everything! I am really happy with my experience that I recommend to all. I liked the concept of being alone with the guide, the driver and the cook. We had much more freedom in our observations and taking photos. We were able to see many things I did not expect, especially the large amount of felines. I did not expect to see so much! The whole team was motivated to teach us as much as possible about their country. It was really nice. We were able to see just how much our guides love their work. We were well surrounded with good company and I felt safe, which is important to me. Thank you for this fantastic experience and I hope you can continue to offer these unique experiences to all those who wish to experience a little bit of Africa.

Kathleen, December2014

The ambiance of our African holidays is unfortunately gradually fading away. We still have photos and many nice mental memories of this very beautiful African experience. The wildlife and nature that we approached for a few weeks are greatly missed. You're lucky! Thank you again for the way we were able to design and prepare this trip together. It was not a natural step for me to look for an agency on the internet to plan this trip. I have always travelled on my own and have freedom of itinerary and rhythm that is not found in formulas of many organized trips. That is how, while I was younger, my wife and I made trips leaving with our backpack and lived real adventures in extraordinary regions. I did not see how or understand how I might one day go to Africa, an area I did not know, with this backpacking approach, but I could not consider a classic or group trip. That is why I very much appreciated our first contact, your sense of attentiveness and the way in which we were able to conceive and plan a working formula for this trip. I appreciated the kind of collaboration we had in preparing this trip and especially that it did not give me the feeling of being only in a business relationship. It was important to me. I wish you continued success in your projects. Sincerely This message is to thank you together with your team for organizing this trip. The team that accompanied us was very friendly, always present and adapted things to our liking, wherever possible. A special mention of the cook: his meals were very hearty and he served us delicious pancakes in the morning! The accommodation met our expectations (simple yet comfortable). Game drive outings and diverse activities made our days busy, we had a feast for the eyes!! The proposed programme was exactly what we desired. We are very pleased!!
