  • Come to this organization Via Orange Safari. Really everything is well arranged also the guidance during the snorkeling. The boat trip was a bit heavy by the rugged ocean but that belongs. The lunch was happy not only but seafood there also served chicken. Also highly recommended to book your excursion with this Organization

  • The best dhow safari in diani. Awesome trips to the marine park swimming with the dolphins, and a superb place for lunch in wasini island. Great guys at the boat
  • They were very welcoming and they quickly gave me the assistance I needed.
  • Absolutely the best trip...best food of my entire life,stuff r amazing,owners are fantastic and committed to ensure ur max satisfaction
  • This day with Pili Pipa was worth every single Schilling we spent. The riffs are just amazing and you get to see everything even if you are a snorkel beginner. Staff is amazing and so is the food on Wasili Island. I can honestly say it was the best meal during our stay in Kenya! If there was one bad thing that it would be the bumpy road to get to Shimoni but it´s totally worth it.
  • From the very start we were made welcome, the tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The reef safari was amazing, I'm nearly 60 and well travelled, this experience easily rates in my top 5. Anyone planning to visit the reef my advice would be to take an underwater camera
