Extraordinary Safari Tour
5/5

My wife and I had the most fantastic trip beginning in the Ngorongoro Crater, then Serengeti and Maasai Mara. From the time we were picked up by the affable Mishak at Kilimanjaro Airport, we felt welcomed. We learned our first Swahili words on the way to the African Tulip Hotel where we were also warmly welcomed and spent a relaxing first night. Our guide for the Crater and Serengeti, Tony, was extraordinary. Smart, personable, knowledgeable, intuitive and more. He catered to all of our wishes, going off the beaten path and finding animals that were unseen by others driving the same routes. The second night was spent at the Acacia Farm Lodge where we were introduced to the staff by Edward. Anna watched over us and made sure we were well taken care of. We even had a tour of the coffee farm early the next morning led by Pascal, a bright young agricultural manager for the farm.

Tony picked us up again int he morning and subsequent mornings at the Kati Kati campsite, then each day we set goals of what we wanted to see and he met them. From the big 5 to birds of all types. His patience in recognizing that a lion in the grass was going to be one of multiple and result in the stalking and successful hunt of a warthog was one of the most thrilling parts of our visit. Truly an amazing person and guide. We were very lucky to have drawn him as our guide. He truly showed us the Soul of Tanzania.

Meiling from Soul of Tanzania worked closely with my wife to make this custom tour a special one. All questions were quickly answered and special requests accommodated.

I went into this adventure being a bit skeptical at what would transpire but I can say that it ended up being life changing. As my wife said to me on more than one occasion, the animals were spectacular, but the people were better.

Unforgettable experience
5/5

We enjoyed the trip of a lifetime with soul of Tanzania! Everything from the communication, organization, pick up, lodges, camps and satisfying meals were more than expected. Our guide Fred was one of a kind, friendly, competent with eagle eyes that could spot all the wildlife and has amazing driving skills in the bumpy roads. We liked also he thoughtful analyzation of the situation where the animals are, how and why they behave this way in this moment.
Our itinerary was for full 6 days safari (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro). Everywhere we had top friendly service and high quality meals. although we went mainly for standard choices, can’t even imagine how could it get better than that. We stayed in Simba lodge (afternoon swim with elephants in the background was a moment to live by). Escarpment Lodge in Manyara had 5 stars service and room, absolutely recommended. In Serengeti we camped in Pumzika, in the middle of the wild where Hyaena were passing by and we heard lions at night!, though here we couldn’t charge our devices (for that the full equipped safari jeep saved the day). In Ngorongoro the camping in Tortilis was my favorite, wished we stayed longer.
Fred took us also to a real Masai village in the town “mosquito river”. Was also very unique and heartwarming experience. We went for souvenir shopping in the last day in 2 different “negotiable” shops which we were also happy about.
We would also like to thank Aziz for the joyfully last day. He picked us up from the airport the first night, and in our last full day in Arusha, he took us to Moshi village, were we had the most scenic hike to Kilimanjaro waterfalls, followed by lunch prepared by SoT and then the lovely visit to the Banana/coffee plantation where we made our own delightful coffee in such a cheerful atmosphere.

Im recommending SoT to everyone i know. I never had a vacation in my life where i felt so happy, so safe, satisfied, full belly, amazed everywhere i looked. My phone can agree with +2500 photos i took in one week! The sweetness and the kindness of the Tanzanian people was heartwarming.

Journey of the Wildebeest
5/5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day tour. We especially liked our guide Huruma. He not only was an excellent driver, but very knowledgable about the wildlife/country, he was also very kind to everyone we met (including stopping to tell a school bus about a leopard sighting we just had). He quickly responded to our likes and dislikes and knew whether to stop for photos or keep driving. He is a truly professional guide and an asset to your team. We saw all of the big 5 multiple times, the amount of wildlife surpassed our expectations.

The camps we stayed in were all fantastic, our favourite being the Namali which we felt was slightly higher end. The only slightly disappointing camp was Chaka as we didn’t realise it wasn’t all inclusive and the food was not as good quality as we had the rest of the week. In all of the camps we were welcomed and looked after like family.

Overall the organisation of the tour was very good. We had no logistical issues. The itinerary was as sold. It might be worth highlighting to guests the extent of the driving between locations. We had no issue, but for some people they might not enjoy it like we did.

Cooked lunches (with wine) was a nice touch and everyone we told in the evenings were also slightly jealous.

We arrived at Kilimanjaro airport and it took approx 3 hours to get through immigration. It might be worth suggesting to guests that they could do the visa online before travelling and this would save considerable time.

Amazing safari in Tanzania
5/5

I was worried about booking a safary directly with a Tanzania company, but the experince was unique.
The price for the journey (6 days in a safari - Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro crate- and 4 days in Zanzibar) was very good comparing other offers I saw.
Everything was fantastic, and I have to mention our guide (now friend) Ayoub that was magnificent explaining all animals we saw.
Absolutely recommendable.

Amazing African Safari!! Highly recommended company.
5/5

My husband and I done a 5 day safari with SOT covering Ngorongoro crater , central serengeti and northern serengeti and we were so pleased with our choice.

I was a little apprehensive about sending so much cash via bank transfer but Helena was in constant contact via email , her help throughout the whole booking process was excellent.

We couldn't have been happier with our guide Edward and it was a sad day when we had to part ways. Edward was always professional, extremely knowledgeable and I'd like to think that we became good friends in the time we spent together. It was particularly nice to see him still getting excited about seeing the wildlife despite him being a guide for 12 years I think I remember him saying.

The amount of wildlife we saw exceeded all my expectations and Edward had a knack of always making us feel like we were the only people there , he always managed to escape the other jeeps.

If anyone is considering a safari I would highly recommend it , and the company I would 100% recommend would be Soul of Tanzania. The memories we made will stay with us forever
