  • David C. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    We were very pleased with the accommodation, our tour guide, the tour bus and all other aspects of Kensington's tour in Morocco. Well done!

  • Kristin S. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    It was an awesome trip to Africa! Seamless! Lovely people from the moment of booking until I arrive home. Have recommended you to everyone I know. Thank you for two back to back vacations to South America & Africa ??

  • George L. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    The service at Kanana Camp was outstanding, in fact the best I've received anywhere. What a wonderful group of warm, friendly and helpful people. Staff at Islands of Siankoba, Ngoma Safari Lodge, and Kirkman's Kamp were all excellent.

  • Jenny V. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    Our trip to Africa was FABULOUS!! I don't often use travel consultants when traveling, but am so happy I did for a trip of this magnitude. Dervla was helpful, prompt and patient while planning. I'm terrible as responding to things, and she was always so nice even though I always took a long time to respond. The hotels were amazing - especially Ngoma Safari Lodge in Botswana. Our private guides and transfers were all on time, friendly and knowledgeable. Every single detail was perfect. I also must say that after our trip, I feel that the cost was very reasonable for the service we received and what was included in the trip. Great value! I would certainly use Kensington Travel again for other special or remote trips! Just amazing!

  • Lynne G. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    We had an exceptional experience & felt safe every step of the way.

  • Jeri E. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    The expertise, helpfulness and friendliness of our guide Daniel was beyond what we expected; as well as Sarah, the person who helped us make our arrangements and the staff in the Nairobi office. Top notch. We would travel with Kensington anytime.

  • Elliot J. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    I can't say enough great things about the travel experience with Kensington. From initial contact, planning, departure and the entire tour/vacation we were 110% pleased. Obviously you guys do your homework as the in-country contacts, driver/transfers, lodges and itinerary were all beyond our expectations. Every detail was attended to, had not one glitch which I know when traveling is not always the case and sometimes unavoidable. I can strongly recommend Kensington after my experience and also the Wildlife Tracker tour they planned for us. Amazing!

  • Jeremy C. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    This was my trip of a lifetime. I've used Kensington for all my travels around the world as a single traveler and they constantly know how to cater to my fine tastes and pay attention to the details.

  • Jane C. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    We loved our trip, the guides, and the total experience. We loved all of the individual attention we received and felt the guide and driver were informed, helpful and professional.

  • Jackie U. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    Awesome experience! Amazing accommodations! The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of their country. Most of them had a PhD degree.
