An Experience of a Lifetime!

My partner and I did a custom 3 day safari to Serengeti and Ngorngoro Crater, with a couple nights in Arusha before the trip. We had an amazing time on our safari, and Omari was such a great guide. Not only did we get to see all the animals we wanted, but saw them multiple times! The staff at all of the accommodations were above and beyond, and we enjoyed our adventure so much. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!

Omari was so accommodating, professional and knowledgable. We had lots of fun with him and felt completely relaxed.

We had a lucky encounter at one of the places we stayed, Lion's Paw, while returning from dinner - a female elephant was enjoying her own dinner right next to our tent! The gentlemen who had escorted us from dinner helped us to stay safe and move the elephant along, but it was incredible to see her up close.

Thanks so much to Sandy for all her help with setting everything up so perfectly and making our trip exactly what we wanted!

Very accommodating due COvid delay.

There were 8 of us touring and we rotated our time between Wilson’s and Hussain’s vehicles. Both were so incredibly knowledgeable of their country and the animals and birds. No question could they not answer.
They were both very professional and a delight to be with. They became part of our group!
Thank you for an amazing Safari

Very organized and responsive

Our Safari exceeded our expectations. We have been on many safaris in Southern Africa and anticipated a much larger scale experience. And Tanzania did not disappoint. Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Eyasi, Ngorongoro crater (the most plentiful sightings), south and central Serengeti were all unbelievable. We were fortunate enough to witness the southern migration and experience a hot air balloon ride too.
This incredible Safari of a life time, was made all the better by our 2 amazing guides, Wilson and Hassani. Cannot say enough about these two gentleman - extremely knowledgeable, very reliable, kind & helpful, they looked after us impeccably. We did not want for anything. Seek them out if you are considering a Safari with Soul of Tanzania!!
Besides the incredible wildlife (highlight being the 9 cheetahs we saw that we have never seen on any of our numerous safaris), the people of Tanzania are wonderful.
Possibly only downside was that we tried to cram too much into 8 days. Maybe a couple of days at each camp, rather than moving on every day would be preferable.
Very very highly recommended. We will go back!

Awe Inspiring Safari

My heartfelt thanks to the Soul of Tanzania team for helping me plan and execute an extraordinary African Safari. From our pickup at Arusha airport to our drop-off at Zanzibar airport 10 days later, we were well taken care of.

Sandy was our journey planner and provided all the information we needed to choose an itinerary and accommodations that matched our dream safari. She always answered my questions within hours and helped guide us in away that would enhance our experience.

James was our driver/guide/concierge and maître d'. He expertly took us to the places where we saw the most animals. The “roads” in the parks are very rough and provide customers with what is know as the Tanzanian massage. James was able to minimize the magnitude of the bumps and ruts and still get us to our destinations on time. His driving skills are unsurpassed.

James kept us constantly updated on where we were and where we were going and where the animals were. He networked over the radio with other drivers to identify points of interest. He has a sharp eye for the wildlife hiding in the bush which enabled us to see animals we surely would have missed otherwise.

When it was time for lunch James found rest areas that had tables and he set an amazing table complete with tablecloth, stainless steel dinnerware, wine glasses, and yes, our choice of red or white wine. May people stopped to look at our table. The food was prepared by the previous nights accommodation and was generally hot and tasty. The first day out we had spaghetti bolognese, veggies and cake for dessert. Pretty nice safari fare!

After six days in the bush we had to bid farewell to James at the Seronera airstrip for our trip to Zanzibar. We had pictured the airport as a small dirt strip with a couple of small planes. The dirt strip was correct but there were hundreds of people trying to catch scores of flights. Once again James came to the rescue and helped us negotiate the chaos. We finally boarded our Dash-8 turbo prop airplane along with fifty other passengers and were soon on our way to Zanzibar. Even with the chaos I highly recommend flying out of the Serengeti as opposed to driving out. The drive back to Arusha is two hundred+ miles and takes all day.

We chose to stay at a resort on Zanzibar to rest and relax after the intense experience of the safari. If I had it to do over I would stay at a resort for a few days before the Safari. You can get over the effects of jet-lag and get anything you might have forgotten.

On Zanzibar we chose an unbranded resort on the eastern shore of the island. We had decided that we were done site-seeing and just wanted to relax. When we arrived we had no local currency and were hungry. Our guide stopped on the way to our hotel and got us some street food (grilled chicken) and found an ATM so I could get some cash. The drive from the airport to our resort took over an hour and on the way my wife mentioned that she would like to see a spice farm. Our guide said that could be arranged and suggested a stop at the Zanzibar iconic restaurant, The Rock, for lunch. A nice day out but over half of the day was driving to and from the activities.

Thanks again to the Soul of Tanzania team for a very successful safari. And a special thanks to James for taking such good care of us.

A Great Experience!

Overall, a great experience—probably once in a lifetime. My wife and I did an 8-day safari for our honeymoon. Each day and each accommodation had a unique flavour. I didn’t know what to expect with the hotels, but was very impressed by the ambience, service and cleanliness. A couple of the hotels were even comparable to high-end hotels in the Mediterranean!

Just want to advise folks to bring a lot of cash as a lot of places won’t accept credit. There are also a few points in the tour (the tribal visits) where you’ll be expected to tip. For an 8-day safari for two, I’d bring at least US$500. You don’t really need Schillings, but bringing US$100 worth would be good.

We want to give a special shout-out to our safari guide, Cleopa. Don’t underestimate the impact that the guide will have. He wasn’t just the driver, he was our travel companion. He was reliable, and we trusted him fully. He had amazing eye sight as well! But more than anything, we developed a special connection with him on a more personal level, and will keep in touch hopefully for years to come.

We’d recommend Soul of Tanzania for your safari adventure, and Cleopa in particular if you can get him.
