DANIEL KIKEMU- CEO, Founder
In 2009 Daniel Kikemu capitalized on his 15 years of safari guiding and management expertise by launching DK Grand Safaris. He has made the company internationally recognized by offering private and customized five-star safari packages in East Africa as well as some parts of southern Africa. DK Grand Safaris has been an award-winning company through his management and leadership.
Daniel Kikemu attended Kenya Utalii College (A Swiss-sponsored Hospitality College), where he graduated with a diploma in Tour Guiding and Administration. Years later, he attended the United States International University (USIU) and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management. Still not finished with his ever-present thirst for learning and wanting to know his ‘product’, Daniel attended Moi University for an Executive Master’s degree in Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management.
He started his career working for Micato Safaris for almost nine years working initially as an office manager and then gradually being promoted to the exclusive senior position of Safari Director. He is renowned for his expertise, philanthropy, and enthusiasm both in Kenya and beyond our country’s boundaries. He sits on the Advisory Board for many philanthropic organizations, including Ecolife Conservation (USA), Cherkin Preston Foundation (USA), Brilliant Beauty College (Kenya), and on the board of many local schools as a Trustee.
