What can we tell you about Benjamin, our guide for our magical Kenyan safari trip? He was courteous, knowledgeable, funny and had such a zest and enthusiasm for the amazing wildlife we encountered. Our vehicle was super comfortable and very new (it got lots of jealous glances)
We can’t thank Benjamin enough for making our holiday so special and would recommend Pollman’S to everyone!

I arranged our flights and land arrangements separately, but was concerned about our personal safety. Hayes and Jarvis booked Keekerok Lodge and Baobab and also booked all transfers and game drives using Pollmans.
Pollmans exceeded expectations meeting us promptly from every flight and game drives, our driver was Joseph at Keekorok who was superb. All Pollmans staff looked after us so well and they all provided us with their personal knowledge of the region, along the way on the various trips.
I booked minibus transfers rather than private car transfers which was fine.
As there was about 4 hours in Nairobi between flights which wasn't really long enough to do very much, I booked the Pollmans Lounge, where we could relax. This proved to be a great move since the airports are very basic with nothing to do and very limited seating. I would suggest looking at the Pollmans website, and that you could book their services with 100%
confidence.

We visited Kenya in late November and used Pollman Tours and Safaris booked through Travel Discounters. Karanja was our professional driver and guide. He was amazing. He has immense knowledge of his country and the animals we saw in three national parks. He was also polite, friendly, engaging, and exceptionally safe as a driver. He was with us for the entire week and we felt very advantaged to have such a professional guide. We would highly recommend Pollman Yours and Safaris while in Kenya.

Well what can I say a wonderful holiday and safari again in Kenya. After last years amazing trip I didn't think it could be better, but it was.
Having been to Amboseli for the first time last year we wanted spend some extra time there this year. We planned our safari around three nights at the excellent Ol Tukai Lodge.
With this in mind we obtained a quote from our usual Tui travel agent. The quote came back over 2 thousand pounds more than we paid last year for basically the same trip.
This prompted me to look on line and enquire from Pollman's, unfortunately they do not sale direct but put me in touch with an agent.
Mike Toogood at Africa Safari Direct Ltd. We explained our planned wishes and after a few tweaks received the quote which was I am pleased to say was a lot less than our local travel agent. So we booked it.
Flew BA from Heathrow transfer and over night stay in Nairobi in the Lazizi Airport Hotel. Very nice hotel new and very modern. Transfer and flight with Kenya Airways to Mombasa, transfer to Baobab Hotel.
Baobab Resort was excellent good choice of food and drink. All the staff are friendly and helpful from the Head Chef to the gardeners. The rooms were clean and tidy, maybe starting to look a little tired in the bath rooms but lets face it the resort is popular and this is the 4th or 5th time that we have been there. Stay for 5 nights.
Morning pick up by the excellent driver and guide Julius Lumumba and drive to Ashnil Aruba Lodge game drive and over night stay. Nice lodge food ok rooms fine if a little hot. Leave in the morning for Amboseli and the Ol Tukai Lodge good food rooms very nice, stay for three nights with morning and afternoon game drives, excellent lodge. Leave early morning for Sarova Taita Hills Lodge food ok room fine. Game viewing on the way to the lodge afternoon drive and also a night drive. Leave in the morning for Mombasa and return to Baobab for 10 nights. Transfer for flights home.

Arriving in Nairobi from NZ was pretty daunting but the whole experience was made effortless by Pollmans. We did a 7 day Safari to the Masai Mara and other parks. Jeff/Geoff was our driver and he was fantastic. Knowledgeable, polite and friendly. There was just us and Jeff so it could very well have been awkward but he made it special. He listened and worked out what we liked and did his best to accomodate us. The vehicle was kept clean each day and Jeff was always on time as were everyone of the various transfer and tour drivers we had. Thanks to the team at Pollmans for putting us at ease and a very memorable holiday.
