WHY CHOOSE DESIGNER SAFARI

Safety, Quality, and Sustainability
are the core of our operations

For more than 22 years, we’ve forged a path beyond the well- trodden routes so you can explore in the way you choose. Our global and local (East Africa-wide) network, expertise and experience make us the ideal partner for you. We are fully committed to implementing three vital policies that form the bedrock of how we conduct business. These are; Safety, Quality, and Sustainability Policies. In delivering safety and quality, we perform all tour activities as per our tried and tested safety and quality procedures to ensure that the resulting tour experiences consistently exceed our client expectations, are reliable, safe & provide maximum value for money to them.

The Bonding Scheme covers all bona fide fully paid-up members of KATO and is designed to provide security (and therefore peace of mind) for all intending visitors and agents alike who book packaged tours (or other services) in Kenya through a KATO member. The KATO Bond Scheme is a “financial guarantee” to cushion the business associates of KATO members against possible loss of monies paid to a KATO member who is facing involuntary liquidation; in which case the Bond Scheme is activated and the affected clients are able to claim back the amounts held up to the limit provided by the Bond.

At Designer Safari, we are committed to endorsing sustainable tourism through a variety of eco-friendly practices. To reduce plastic waste, we provide our clients with reusable water bottles and dispensers in our safari vehicles, eliminating the need for single-use plastics. Additionally, we offer reusable tote shopping bags, handmade by local women in Kangemi through our partnership with Mrembo Africa, supporting both the environment and the local community. We also encourage our clients to donate to travel carbon credit schemes, such as Justdiggit, to offset their carbon footprint and contribute to global reforestation efforts. Through these initiatives, Designer Safari ensures that our safaris not only offer unforgettable experiences but also support the preservation of our planet for future generations.

Wonderfull Safaris - Excellent Service We booked 3 different Safaris and one local flight. Gorilla Trekking in Uganda, Safari 1 (Amboseli, Tsavo West and East) and a safari to the Masaii Mara. Local flight from Mombasa to Nairobi. All bookings went well. The service is excellent. The Safari to Amboseli and Tsavo that we made with Designer Safari's own driver (George) and their vehicle was perfect. The car (Landcruiser) was pretty new. Our driver was well trained and a safe driver. We had wonderfull gamedrives with him. We do our safaris with Designer Safaris for more than 30 years now and we will continue.

Photography Bird Safari with Designer Safaris Thank you Designer Safaris, the private bird watching safari around Kenyan lakes was fantastic and beyond expectations! As we know when trying to experience nature, at times we might not get 100% of what we want. Even then, Designer Safaris was able to deliver an incredible experience. We were interested in bird watching but in particular flocks of thousands of flamingos in the wild, and by Designer Safaris relying on professionals and experts who were aware of climate change and the different migration routes of birds, we were able to achieve our objectives and more. If you read about lake Nakuru, 20 years ago it was one of the biggest sanctuaries for flamingos (in the millions), not longer the case. However, Designer Safaris was aware of these changes and took us to the new sights. From day one of preparation for the trip, Alex, the company's manager, paid close attention to the type of trip we were looking for and by assigning "Julius", our driver, an experienced professional in Kenya's tourism industry, we were able to see, photograph, admire, a large number of species of birds in lakes Baringo, Bogoria, Nakura National Park, and Elementaita. Worth mentioning.... when our flight returning home was cancelled, Designer Safaris was able to put together an extension to our trip in less than 24 hours and visited Amboselli National Park, with the imposing volcano Kilimanjaro. It was also a highlight of our trip.

Wonderful Week Long Safari Experience As a travel agent, I am always looking for partners to share experiences for my clients. Designer Safari is one that I would unequivocally recommend to my clients in the future. In planning the itinerary for my clients with Designer Safari, we were able to customize a six day safari specific to interests and budget. Our guide/driver had over ten years experience and was phenomenal. I look forward to working with this company in the future- as they were awesome!

A great, well organized and safe safari experience. We have been on many types of safaris in Africa over 41 years. We've done self drive, expensive group tours and also using local companies, like Designer Safari, with a Landcruiser and a driver. We can't imagine doing it any other way. We will only hire locally anymore; you can choose any itinerary, hotels and lodges you want and somebody like Alex can quote you. Designer Safari, and Alex, stepped up and provided us with a great experience based on our budget and interests. We traveled with our friend, a US travel agent, and she and Alex put together what she and my husband and I wanted. We always felt safe with driver/guide Geoffrey, thoroughly enjoyed his company, his knowledge and most importantly -- his driving skills on some crazy roads! I believe that local tour operators like Alex can put together any kind of safari you want, from budget to true luxury, fly or drive between locations, golf, add other nearby countries, etc. We chose a midrange experience and were overall pleased with our locations in Masai Mara, Amboseli, Tsavo, etc. If one lodge had better WiFi , then the next may have better showers! It all evened out. We saw and did all the usual animal experiences. If you've never done safari, you need to. Alex even came to our rescue when our Nairobi hotel stay (booked entirely by us, not him) was a bad experience. We had to leave a very shoddy, dirty property and our friend immediately texted Alex who advised Deerpark Luxury Stay. OMG! And almost the same price. We highly recommend Designer Safari to anyone.

Utter paradise. The time of my life! If you're thinking about booking an adventure with Designer Safari, stop thinking about it - and do it. From start to finish, this experience was magical. Everyone who works with the Designer Safari team is wonderful. Their warm spirits, kindness and passion for the Masai Mara's animals was truly inspiring. Beyond the incredible people and the animals (and really, what more could you possibly need?!), the food was outstanding, and the 'tents' (that word feels oh so wrong for their level of luxury) were absolutely gorgeous. I will never forget my time with Designer Safari. I dream of the sunrises and sunsets often! Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

Unforgettable Experience - Design Safari Having gone through Design Safari to organize our stay for &beyond Kichwa Tembo Safari - was just the best idea ever. From the beginning to the end we found in Mr. Mutuma Koome a professional and attentive interlocutor ready to answer all our questions. The stay at & beyond Kichwa Temba Lodge was simply unforgettable and we had difficulty leaving the lodge on the day of departure. Great professionalism at all levels reception, room, meals, guide for outings in the bush. In addition we had the chance to admire much more than the simply unforgettable Big 5 and we were amazed... Truly Out of Africa... Many thanks and congratulations for your job Design Safari Well done Mutuma

Thanks to Designer Safari, my sister and I get to enjoy safari in Masai Mara and it was just a humbling experience. Mutuma and the team organized everything for us. We also loved staying at Deepark Luxury Stays, a home away from home. All the staff were so kind and helpful.
I will definitely contact Designer Safari again in the future and would recommend them 100%

Went on my first safari almost two weeks ago and Designer Safari made my experience perfect. So helpful and they answered all my questions fast. I couldn’t have asked for better service. As a solo traveller I felt safe and everything was well planned. So if you are planning to go on safari I can highly recommend Designer Safari. If you are staying in Nairobi I can also recommend the beautiful and peaceful Deerpark on Kunde Road 6.
