We had Fantastic Day tour at Materuni Waterfalls
5/5

We had Fantastic Day tour at Materuni Waterfalls

Fantastic, beautiful place with nice Waterfall. Very kind staff, guides and delicious local food, professional in Coffee hand made from beans until to be ready to be drink. Super hike tour at place Materuni Village. I can definitely recommend.
However, if you want to swim, Hotsprings (Kikuleta/Chemka) seems to be great alternative as well!

Great and Fun walking Safari at Arusha National Park with Taste of Afrika

We had great and fun walking Safari with our guide from taste of afrika safaris. I would recommend this company when you want to do day tour from Arusha or Moshi. To see buffalo, giraffes, baboons and warthogs up close was for us amazing experience. We got a chance to see a rare albino baboon and some flamingos in this park.

Beautiful, Close Park to Beach and perfect for Daytrip from Dar es salaam

Beautiful Park to visit from Dar es salaam, Tanga and Bagamoyo as Coastal of Tanzania. This was only the National Park, which I could visit and founded near Dar es salaam where I was working as Volunteer. I can recommend you to do camping near to the beach inside the park, whereby you can have Boat tour for the best view of crocodiles, hippos, fish etc. This Park is so peaceful. I can recommend this Company every traveler around these areas to book with them.

Stay Safe!

2 hours late and ripping me off
1/5

Booked a day trip to Arusha NP with Seka from Taste of Africa. The guide was supposed to pick me up at 7.30, but at the agreed time there was no one to be seen. No one from the company was available until I got a call from Seka at 8:55 AM. He told me that there was a problem, but that it was solved and that he would come in half an hour. At 9:25 AM I was finally picked up by Seka and the guide, after which we still had to leave for Arusha NP.

Seka left and I continued with the guide and we were only at the park well after 11 o'clock, where we then also had to wait at the entrance because the entrance fee had not yet been paid...

We had a nice day and the guide did his best, but was not very experienced and often busy taking selfies. He didn't know the answer on many questions and didn't know the animals very well. He also said that unfortunately this was not the first time that Taste of Afrika was late, because the owner was a drunk and often overslept.

We nearly ran out of time to see the entire park, but luckily we managed to do so in the end because the guide drove very fast.

I didn't get a discount on this day trip, but could get a discount on another day trip. However, I got the same price as quote as I've had before, so Seka wanted to rip me off again.

I would definitely not recommend Taste of Africa.

Great Trek
5/5

Taste of Afrika did a great job on our Kilimanjaro trek. Great guide and driver. Seka even arranged for our transport to the airport the next day and coordinated our PCR test. They took great care of us and we highly recommend them.

!!!WARNING FROM SEKA GONDWE (owner of Taste of Afrika)!!!
1/5

!!!WARNING FROM SEKA GONDWE (owner of Taste of Afrika)!!!

1.) FAKE REVIEWS!
Seka writes fake reviews himself under alias names! I know it 100% and I can even prove it, because the Google rating of the user "lil-emky" includes the pictures shot by me! I only provided these photos to Seka so he could create a video of our hike for extra payment. NOBODY except seka and me is in possession of these pictures. SO SEKA MUST HAVE WRITTEN THE RATING HIMSELF! I explicitly told Seka to delete the photos after creating the video and not to use them elsewhere.
When I look at the reviews so also noticed that very many positive reviews were written by users who have only written a single review... funny that people specially create a new Google account to write a single review or...? (but can also be a coincidence)

2.) SERVICE NOT PROVIDED, PROMISES REFUND FOR MONTHS, BUT DOES NOT REFUND!
We had booked some extras for additional payment. One of these extras did not take place and it does not matter what reason Seka comes up with all of a sudden for the failure of the extra. It's annoying enough when something you were looking forward to doesn't happen, but for Seka not to refund the extra cost is FRAUD! He has been promising me reimbursement since June and postponing it until the following week every time...SINCE JUNE, for 4 months!!!! By now I know I will not get the money back.

3.) His employees are not salaried, but are contracted as "self-employed".
He does not discuss what has been agreed with the customer with the "employees", so they get into difficult and unpleasant situations with the customer.

4.) He tries to save money even during the tours: e.g. booked beverage flats are suddenly to be paid by the customer (only clarified after discussions).

(supposedly) positive:

5.) At the beginning (online booking) and when you talk to him (Seka) personally on site, he always seemed very friendly and customer-oriented. He planned our tour according to our wishes and took a lot of time. However, the moment he got the money transferred, the contact already became less.
I think we were very lucky. Probably the special occasion of our trip - which Seka knew about - led to the fact that Seka didn't cheat us completely and that our trip was carried out at least to a large extent as planned. (Cheaters apparently sometimes still have a bit of heart!).

6.) What was really SUPER were the super dedicated staff (=self-employed) of our crew during the ascent of Kili (including Nickson and Brison + all porters) as well as our safari-guide Moses! Thank you for giving us a beautiful and successful climb as well as a unique safari despite the problems with Seka!
Without these people our tour at Taste of Africa would probably have been a total failure.

Conclusion: Taste of Africa and especially the owner Seka Gondwe are NOT TO RECOMMEND! Seka only wants the customers' money. We were lucky in our misfortune, but other reviews show that this is unfortunately not the case with everyone.
