Amazing Safari
5/5

If there is one adjective to use for this trip it is SUPERB. From my initial contact with the company until when our amazing guide Saleh dropped us off to the airport last night the experience with Lion King Adventure is nothing less than excellent. I had my sister and dad arriving from New Zealand to visit me in Tanzania and wanted them to have an experience of a lifetime. As a resident in Dar, I had been lucky enough to have done previous Safaris. I had high expectations of how easy it is to deal with a company, where we stayed, the food and service, the itinerary, affordability and MOST IMPORTANTLY the need for a knowledgeable guide. Lion King Adventure fulfilled my expectations on all of these.
Saleh our guide was fantastic. Not only was he exceptionally knowledgeable, he showed a real interest in getting to know us, to make sure we were always happy, comfortable and finding ways to make our safari the best it could be. He went to great lengths to be able to show us every animal we dreamed of seeing, whilst also being flexible on the timing of our days. I was impressed that no matter what park we were in, he knew where to take us (we covered 100s of km of the plains, lakes, national parks). He is a super kind and happy man. His energy was so welcomed on some long days out together on the truck. I would recommend Saleh 100% and will be asking for him again on my next adventure with the rest of my family.
The accommodation was excellent and service second to none. I don't have anything but positive things to say about the whole experience.
Thanks Saleh and your team at Lion King Adventures

7 day Lion Kind Safari
5/5

The wildlife we saw was amazing but the trip wouldn’t have been as incredible as it was without our guides, Mwita and Ozzy. They were respectful of animals, flexible with the desires of our group, and kind to everyone. I highly recommend this experience.

Reliable, Professional. Experienced
5/5

First up. the back office support was efficient and good, from first contact, to working through timings and amendments, to arrival on site and even a check that all was ok on return. Very impressed.
On site, everything within Lion King's control went to plan, with a friendly enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, good safari vehicle and arrangements for food and drink and accommodation. We got to see just about everything we hoped to see, and more, and had a good explore of three major parks. Slightly pricey, but given all went to plan and we had an excellent trip, no complaints at all.
Would certainly use again.

Best Safari Experience Ever With Guide Immanuel
5/5

It was the absolute best decision to go on our honeymoon to Tanzania! The animals, the landscape, the people - all made for the most perfect trip. A couple notes about our 11 day trip to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Zanzibar:

1) Lion King Adventures was the best tour operator we could have asked for. Their high rating on Safari Bookings is completely justified. We worked with Nickson and Anna through the process and they were both prompt, professional, and showed great flexibility in helping us find the perfect itinerary. While I must admit I was a little uneasy when our credit card payment could not be processed (we're from USA), rest assured, we were able to pay using Wise just fine. Just know, if the payment process is the worst part of your trip, you've picked the best tour operator!

2) Our tour guide, Immanuel, was the absolute, hands down best! I guess since this was our first safari, we did not realize just how important your tour guide is to your experience (they are your chauffeur, animal/plant expert, translator, lunch preparer, etc.) - you spend upwards of 10 hours/day with them! Immanuel was so knowledgable about every animal that we saw, it was as if we had our own encyclopedia driving us around. He had a great knack for finding animals as well as positioning the Toyota Land Cruiser in a way for the best photos - e.g. he saw some cheetahs from a long distance out (still don't understand how he was able to see them in the savannah grass...), and he drove us to the exact spot they crossed our path. Immanuel was so patient stopping for every animal that interested us (my wife loves giraffes so he stopped just about every time for her even though we saw hundreds en route and in the Serengeti) as well as giving us a tidbit about each animal and answering every question that we had. It was really great to see his excitement as well - we knew if he asked us to take a picture of a leopard in a tree or lions sleeping in front of us, it was a special moment even for a well seasoned guide! We also felt like royalty every lunch when he would set up a hot meal lunch with tablecloth and choice of beverages all aligned perfectly (this is where you could tell Lion King Adventures goes above and beyond for their clients - not many other tours had this perk, just box lunches). You can just really tell Immanuel loves his job and is pouring his heart and soul into it. On a more personal level, his English is excellent - he knew our American slang and idioms really well. He is just a really caring and selfless human being (e.g. stopping to assist other guides with car trouble and always giving our lunch leftovers to the guys cleaning the park bathrooms), it was so great to get to know him on a personal level. I hope we can stay in touch in the future!

3) All of our airport transfers and accommodations were great. We stayed at Arusha Planet Lodge, Lake Burunge Tented Camp, Eileen's Trees Inn, Embalakai Camp, and The Residence (in Zanzibar). Every single place we stayed the staff was nothing short of excellent, kind, and all had a smile on their faces (special shoutout to Embalakai Camp - our favorite spot while on safari!). The food was great at each option as well - essentially you can't go wrong with all of the recommended places from Lion King Adventures!

4) If you are thinking about doing a safari but have reservations like we did because of distance, COVID, etc. I just want to say it was 1000% worth it! It was the best trip we've taken to date and we are already planning our return trip to Tanzania. Lion King Adventures and specifically Immanuel played a big part in our enjoyment, and I hope this review gives others a sense of how great it was for us - thanks Immanuel!!
