Overview

Highlights

  • Explore Nanyuki
  • Discover camping in Old Moses and Shiptons Camp
  • Experience game drive in Nanyuki

Short Description

Located on the plains of Mount Kenya, the camp features thirty-nine luxury tents, each with its own private veranda overlooking the water hole. The central Rhino Restaurant is housed in the former manager's house of this once colonial farm, and offers both regional and international cuisine. Also within the house is the Kashoggi Bar and lounge, which centres on a blazing log fire. The Waterhole Bar, built in the style of a game-viewing hide, overlooks the waterhole and offers unrivalled wildlife-watching.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

I booked with Tours by Locals on Jan. 31, 2019. We were on a cruise out of New York City. We were due to arrive back to port in the morning and booked this to fill our day before we flew out in the evening. Two days before our tour I received an email that our guide was no longer available and they would try to find another. They didn't and cancelled our tour that had been booked for almost 9 months.

Anastasia from St Petersburg Russia is amazing. Unforgettable St Petersburg is exactly what Anastasia and our driver delivered. Very easy to find one another after disembarking our cruise ship. Anastasia was ready for all our demands. She is very knowledgeable and took her time to answer all our crazy questions. We highly recommend Anastasia for a tour. She is nothing short of amazing. Every landmark we went to was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. My dream truly came true with Anastasia. Wish we had more time.

We took a Rome by Night tour and this tour was by far our favorite part of our trip to Rome! Dino was incredibly personable and knowledgeable about every aspect of our trip. He and our driver, Andre, were at our hotel promptly at 9:15 and he had put thought into which sights would be best to see right at sunset. He was flexible and willing to show us an additional spot that we showed interest in... To top it all off, he was great at photography and took many great pictures of us to remember this wonderful tour and vacation!

I had the most amazing experience with Tours By Locals! My husband and I recently visited Iguazu Falls in Argentina 11/3/17. Our guide Marcelo, was on time picking us up at our hotel and took us on a complete tour of the falls and was extremely knowledgeable of all surrounding flora and fauna.He spoke at least 4 languages (now also learning Korean) and was a fun and interesting person to spend time with. We booked a tour that was to take us to both sides of the falls but we were unable to obtain a visa for Brazil. Tours By Locals refunded part of the fee to compensate the shorter tour.I would highly recommend Tour By Locals. The entire day was enjoyable and hassle-free...Well worth the money! A big thank you to Marcelo for the most excellent day in Iguazu Falls!

I took a tour with Pamela Brefon in Paris and it was just amazing. She knows a lot about the city's history and also about modern parisian life, so the blend of the two was just perfect. I can't imagine seeing Paris for the first time any other way.

Cancellation Policy:

If you cancel or cannot take your tour as a consequence of force majeure, ToursByLocals will refund the amount you have paid for your tour to a limit $1000 USD. If you have paid more than $1000 for your tour, ToursByLocals will refund the amount you have paid less any non-recoverable out-of-pocket costs the Tour Guide has incurred on your behalf - car rentals, admissions, hotel reservations, tickets etc. We may require you to provide verification to confirm that you were unable to take your tour if you request a refund under this provision.

Force Majeure includes impersonal events such as war, civil insurrection, strikes, volcanoes, extreme weather, earthquake or natural disaster that makes the it dangerous or impossible to safely undertake the tour. The determination of what constitutes 'Force Majeure' is at the discretion of ToursByLocals. However, a travel warning issued by the US Department of State AFTER you book your tour invokes 'force majeure' or if you are on a ship and it is unable to dock for whatever reason, you are covered under this 'Force Majeure' provision.

For cancellation due to any other reasons (such as illness, change of personal circumstances), the date on which the request to cancel is received by ToursByLocals will determine the refund due as follows:

If you cancel 60 days or more before the start of the tour: No cancellation fee. We will refund the amount paid less any non-recoverable upfront costs incurred by the Tour Guide on your behalf. These upfront costs represent out of pocket expenses of the Tour Guide for tickets, transportation deposits and other non-recoverable tour expenses. Please send a message to the Tour Guide to find out what, if any, these costs are.

If you cancel 59 to 30 days before the start of the tour: 20% cancellation fee. If you have paid for your tour in full, we will issue a refund of 80%. If you paid only a deposit we will refund only the amount paid in excess of 20% of the tour price.

If you cancel less than 30 days before the start of the tour: 100% cancellation fee.

In some cases, the Tour Guide may cancel a tour due to weather or other circumstance. In the event that the Tour Guide cancels the tour, you may choose between a rescheduling of the tour, a full refund of all monies paid OR a credit towards an alternative tour. If you choose to accept a credit, the difference in the cost of the alternative tour will be refunded or paid by you as applicable.
