About us

Netherken, a combination of 'Netherlands' and 'Kenya', was started because we are already involved in providing our hospitality services by managing Mikindani Sunset Lodge and Jacyjoka Apartments & Restaurant.

We have years of experience with offering safaris in Kenya, and we can offer you a tailor-made safari holiday.Let us know your wishes and dreams and together we can assemble the best combination of day trips and activities in Kenya.

We work closely with our selected partners in Kenya. They know the country like no other and will propagate our standard for a unique holiday from start to finish. 

We are Janet and Ton, a Kenyan-Dutch couple who met each other in Kenya in 2008. Janet already owned a hotel in Mombasa, Mikindani Sunset Lodge, and Jacyjoka Apartments & Restaurant in Nyali, Mombasa. Together we decided to expand our tourism business in Kenya in order to make sure we had a good income for the future and to be able to feel at home in both Kenya and the Netherlands. The expansion consisted of increasing the capacity of Jacyjoka from 6 to 12 apartments, and adding a swimming pool and a restaurant, all in a beautiful garden.

Furthermore, the expansion consisted of the establishment of Butterfly4Volunteers, a volunteer and internship mediation company operating from the office of Jacyjoka. Last but not least, we created Netherken Safaris & Tours.


We see it as our core task to offer people all facets of hospitality and at the end of the day, we would like to see people happy and satisfied with our service.

We want to communicate these aspirations to even more people, together with the customization and service we want to offer with Netherken Safaris & Tours. We want all of our customers from all over the world to be satisfied with all our services in the experience of hospitality.

We work closely with our selected partners in Kenya. They know the country like no other and will propagate our standard for a unique holiday from start to finish.
