  • This is way the most horrid travel experience of my life. Stay far, far away from this tour company!!! David, was very cordial leading up to the tour, but when we paid, things took a major turn for the worst... First, this company is not a "Tour". They contract out their service to an uniformed driver who won't talk about where you are, or what animals you are seeing. Our first guide barely spoke English. Don't expect to have the same tour guide throughout the trip. We were moved from different vans throughout the tour, as all other people were. Every other day we drove in excess of 8 hours just to act as a taxi service for the "tour" participants. Twice we drove all the way back to Nairobi to do so, wasting an entire day. It was maddening to be shuttled around in a van for hours. The first day, we were waiting for another van to arrive at a meet point, and they were 3 hours late to pick up. We missed the game drive that evening. When I complained about this, there was no resolution. One time that we were being passed off to another van, our driver was going to leave us on the side of the road to meet our new van. We had no phone, no contact info for new driver, nothing. We had all our luggage and had to argue with him not to leave. We waited 3 hour by the side of a gas station on the outskirts of Nairobi. Concerning our itinerary, most of the hotels listed on our itinerary changed, and we were put in the cheapest hostel/hotel possible. When we complained, we were given the run around from the people on the office. On the day we were were to stay in a nice hotel in Ngorogogo crater we were told that it was sold out and we were taken to a budget hotel one hour from the park. I was suspicious and called the hotel myself, it turns out that the DID have availability that night. David, eventually stopped returning my emails. We were told that our safari would have maximum 6 persons in the car. Instead we had 8 people plus all of the luggage so you could barely move. It was unreal. We kept running into other travelers who were incredibly upset by this company, some crying, others asserting fraudulence. This company goes by the names Absolute Holiday Safari, a total and complete fraud. Their mailing address is: P.o box 7014 - 00300, Nairobi - Kenya.
