  • Edward C. — March 24, 2017 — Africa

    Our guide and driver were above and beyond our expectations.

  • Mary Ann B — March 17, 2017 — Africa

    I would definitely recommend Kensington Tours. Very well pleased with everything they provided. Accommodations were excellent as well as tour guides. Gareth at Kensington was a tremendous help in planning our trip. Thank you so much Kensington for a great trip to South Africa.

  • Elizabeth E — February 07, 2017 — Africa

    Both our guides from Rwanda to Tanzania were the best. Everything was FLAWLESS, the guides, transportation, the accommodations, the food, the safaris, etc. We actually went to the villagers home and met the kids who performed their native dance for us. It really was an emotional connection that was one of the highlights of the whole trip for us. Thanks so much for putting this all together for us!

  • Katie M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Our Kensington Tour to Tanzania was excellent. All of our accommodations were top-notch, our flights were fantastic, and every single detail was taken care of. We were extremely impressed with how welcoming and knowledgeable our guides were.

  • Neal F. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Best trip ever. Sarah was a delight to work with and answered all of our questions and concerns professionally and courteously. It was a trip of a lifetime and everything was fantastic. Thank u Sarah and thank you Kensington

  • Rachel F. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Kensington Tours gave us a wonderful trip with the best guide and accommodations. They helped us book flights to avoid long drives and answered all of our questions going above and beyond. Thank you for all your help giving my family and I a trip of a lifetime! We cannot wait to go back to Africa and do it again using Kensington!

  • Jeffrey L. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We wanted the full safari experience and Kensington was able to deliver it. We had the perfect mix of tents and lodges and honestly can say we saw about everything we could have in our time there. Our Kensington guide Elijah was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was basically a member of the family by the end of the trip. The entire trip was planned out perfectly. Thanks to Kensington and we hope to travel with them again in the future.

  • Sarah M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We had such a tremendous trip! We covered a lot of geography, plants and animals - both aquatic and land based. Every guide we had was knowledgeable and very personable. When Grootbos and then Madikwe found out it was my husband's birthday - our guide at Grootbos "Nita" arranged a private party for him (and us) and our chef and butler at Little Madikwe, Violet and Patience, baked cupcakes and got a small group together to sing happy birthday - in English and Afrikaans! We could never have seen so much on our own. The knowledge we gained about South African people, places, animals and history made this our trip of a lifetime! Thank you!

  • Sasha T. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We had the most amazing time on our trip. Very grateful to Kensington for organizing all the pick ups and details so we didn't have to think or worry - we could just enjoy ourselves. Will absolutely recommend this trip to family and friends and hope to use Kensington again in the future for our next adventure. Thanks so much!

  • Kristin C. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    From the minute we landed, everything was taken care of. Every driver and guide we had were very friendly and efficient. The highlight of our trip was our stay at Kapama Southern Camp, everything about this place was amazing. We were all sad to leave and would love to return there in the future. Would highly recommend booking as many people there as possible.
