Both of my husband Jon and I are very satisfied in this safari with our guide Mr. Julius Gikonyo of Aardwolf.
After our safari cancelation and refund by an other safari company we chose Aardwolf to make a last minute safari.
When I was choosing among different companies for safari I noticed that Aardwolf has less reviews .
We booked our safaris to Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, AMboseli and Tsavo East with Aardwolf Africa.
