About Us

Our Journey

2017 The Beginning

Have you started planning your safari on your own? Are you totally overwhelmed with all the information out there? Let us save you the trouble and help you plan a safari that is completely tailored to you.

Love at first sight

One cannot resist the lure of Africa. For there is always something new out of Africa.

Our Passion

2019 The Beginning

Perhaps the most huge piece of a safari is the guide. All of our safaris in Kenya, Tanzania are eventually encouraged and lead by Lenny Koshal (with the exception of whenever decided). He is a cultivated safari guide who has experienced years living in the greenery, following explicit animals for quite a while and seeing phenomenal and at no other time seen practices. He has expansive direct data on conduct of numerous animals including Leopards, Lions, Cheetahs and Elephants. Relatively few people on the planet have followed and concentrated wild thought as much as he has done.

He has been affirmed by the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA, Bronze Level) and has been living for a serious long time in the Masai Mara NR, following the animals for quite a while and an apparently interminable measure of time after year. Regardless, most of all of, it’s his obsession for African untamed life and photography that can really have the impact on your safari. This action is his life, his dream turn out to be, so you can be guaranteed that he will give all of himself on any safari to ensure that guests leave with remarkable pictures and memories of the magnificent spots you’ll visit.

Love For Birds

One cannot resist the lure of Africa. For there is always something new out of Africa.

Incredible safari! What incredible trip with Lenny! He does not fail in his reputation. In addition to knowing how to find animals and respect them, he is cultured. He likes to share and teach us things. It's so nice to deal with such passionate people. It was the first time, but not the last.

Great Safari due to our Wonderful Guide Lenny My family and I were very fortunate to have Lenny as our game drive guide/driver for our 2 night stay at Amboseli and then 3 nights at the Maasai Mara (we traveled to Tanzania between those 2 parks). Lenny was simply the best. He was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and parks. In fact, my wife was constantly taking notes on her iPhone with all the information he shared with us. Lenny had this great sense to know when and where the wildlife was going to be. We would see an elephant roaming around and then he would park his jeep 100 yards down the road. Sure enough, the elephant would come lumbering down our way, 20 feet from our jeep. You can tell he loves what he does for a living and that he loves showing off his beautiful country. And he is also very determined. On our last day, his goal was for us to to find the elusive black rhino which kept on eluding us. He then got a lead and we raced to the river close to the Tanzania border. With only minutes to spare, we find the rhino and took several pictures of the beautiful animal before it disappeared. It was so exciting. I highly recommend that you ask for Lenny and you will not be disappointed.

Amazing experience! Our safari with Lenny was an unforgettable experience! It was truly amazing! I would highly recommend Lenny to anyone considering doing a safari in Kenya. He was honest, knowledgeable, fun, and worked hard to help us see what he knew we wanted to see. He took excellent care of us from beginning to end. Seeing the wildebeest migration and watching them cross the river was a once in a lifetime experience! Thank you Lenny!

If You Want the VERY BEST Safari guide… Lenny set the bar so high on our Safari that if we were to go on another safari with a different guide I am afraid we would be disappointed. He is not only very professional, he is extremely passionate about his work, he is knowledgeable, personable and fun. We all loved both Lenny and his brother Dennis, who drove the other vehicle for our group of 15. Honestly, for a group as big as ours (15) including 4 teenagers, a 10 year old and a 6 year old and 9 adults ranging in ages 40 to 81, he pulled it off without a hitch! Incredible!!! Every single one of us was extremely happy with the e tire 2 week trip! The beautiful camps, the awesome lodge and the five star resort at the end of the trip we’re all personally selected by Lenny. They were all inclusive and the food was great! There were many amazing things we saw but I’d say the highlight was witnessing the wildebeest migration across the Mara River. Absolutely stunning! Only Lenny could have timed that one just right!!! Part luck and part having the smarts and experience to navigate at just the right time. It was a miracle! We loved it!

An unbelievable safari experience! Even better than I had imagined! We had the most amazing experience on our safari with Lenny and Dennis. We loved every minute of our time in Kenya. Lenny worked very hard to plan our trip entirely for us. We stayed in beautiful camps and lodges. On each game drive, Lenny knew exactly where to take us so that we would see so many beautiful animals. He was incredibly knowledgeable about each animal and he also took some amazing shots for us with his camera. We were sad to have the trip end. Lenny and Dennis now feel like members of our own family! I highly recommend Tayiai Safaris!

Amazing Safari with Lenny Koshal We spent an incredible week with Lenny of Tayiai Safaris in Massai Mara Park. Lenny is an endless source of information about the park and its wildlife. He is an exceptional guide and seems to almost read the mind of the animals we were tracking. I've rarely met anyone so in love with his job. Even though he has been doing this for more than 13 years at times it seemed he was more excited about a sighting than us 😀. I highly recommend Lenny. We will surely be coming back for more

Outstanding and Best in Maasai Mara Have been on a number of safaris in Africa, mabe 20, and this is the very best. Outstanding. Guide Lenny is the best guide I have met, he cares for his clients and do everything to give them the experience of a lifetime. He knows everything about most of the animals. Leopard was on my lwichlist and after 5-6 safaris in Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia and Kruger I was still trying to see one. First time I joined Lenny I saw one first day and we could sit and look at him for more then 30 minutes (see photo). I have so many great experiences going on safari with Tayiai and Lenny so I can really recommend everyone to book with them next time you want an extraordinary safai. I have myself already booked 2 more safaris with Tayiai, april and september.

Dream safari with the best guide Impossible to mention a favourite part. Lenny is THE best guide in every possible way- knowledgeable, humble, funny, professional, kind and does his outmost to make sure you get the best experience. He seems to be enjoying being a guide, at the same time as he has a genuine interest and care for the environment and its animals. He seems to know every inch of the enormous Mara and thanks to Lenny, we arrived as the first car to many sightings. We can't recommend him enough, and he will be the obvious choice for the next safari. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a safari that still feels like a dream.

An amazing, memorable journey with Lenny Wow- five stars aren’t enough for this amazing experience! Lenny Koshal is a fantastic, knowledgeable guide. From the beginning stages of planning all the way to the end of the journey he made this trip perfect. First on the itinerary was Samburu and Elephant Bedroom Camp. What an unforgettable stay we had with elephants walking through the camp and the staff was great. Then we had one remarkable night at The Cliff, Nakuru. The tent was luxurious and we loved sitting on the deck listening to the multitude of bird sounds while looking out at the beautiful lake. Last we visited Maasai Mara where we stayed at Entim Camp. Mara is a magical place and Lenny was so proud to be in his home. He had a wonderful way of teaching us so much about the different species and the land. I highly recommend Tayiai Safaris for the experience of a lifetime.
