Memorable Safari with an incredible guide Edwin
5/5

We are a family of 5 and just returned from a memorable safari in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, where we've spent 6 days.

Even before the start of the safari, the experience with the safari design was very good, and credits to Jose. Since my first contact, the answers were swift, always very clear and aiming to please our requests. I also found interesting the packages “comfort”, “exclusive”, etc … it’s easy to understand and reflect well the different options.

The Safari was an incredible experience, everything was according to our expectations and went very smooth. A big part due to Edwin, our guide. We’ve seen an unbelievable number of animals 30+ lions, 50+ elephants, 4 cheetahs, 3 leopards, hyenas, giraffes, hundreds of zebras, Thomson's gazelles, wildebeests, etc … … truly remarkable! We’ve found Edwin to be a very talented guide. His knowledge of all animals and Serengeti is absolutely amazing, sounding like a real “encyclopedia”. His relationship skills were fantastic, both with me and my wife, but specially with our kids as he created a friendly mood, that was precisely what we were looking for in our vacation. A big, big thank you to Edwin!

All the accommodations were great, but the ones in the middle of the savannah were amazing - Acacia Luxury Camp, Acacia Migration Camp and Nimali (this last one, superb). The food and beverages were very good and prepared with care. We found all the staff to be super friendly and made us always feel at home - thank you to all of them.

Summing up, it was an incredible experience for all our family and we will definitely recommend Soul of Tanzania.

Amazing experience with incredible guide and professional team
5/5

We spent 8 days on safari with Soul of Tanzania, visiting Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti Central, Serengeti North (to see the Great wildebeest Migration) and Lake Manyara. The trip was honestly the experience of a lifetime, and I cannot recommend Soul of Tanzania, and especially our wonderful guide Eddy (Edward) enough.

The company itself was very professional, with very prompt responses to our questions when we were planning the trip early on and very flexible with our requests / changes to the itinerary. Both our pick up from the airport in Arusha and our pick-up from the hotel the next morning were prompt and on time. The company also stands out from a lot of the other ones we saw by providing a delicious warm lunch every day which really makes the whole experience feel a bit more comfortable.

The main thing that made our experience so special was our guide Eddy. He really went above and beyond. Not only did we see the Big 5 (and many many more), but we saw each of them at least twice and all of them from extremely close (like could count the spots on a leopard close). As soon as we told him one of our group was a keen photographer, he would make sure to show us each animal from multiple angles so we could get the perfect shot. He also wasn’t just ticking boxes by showing us each animal once we saw each one in multiple states - for example, we saw lions sleeping in a tree, a lion climbing up and down a tree, but then also saw them stalking prey, watched some lion cubs playing and even saw them mating. He was incredible at spotting animals, and we were the first jeep on location on numerous occasions. He was also so knowledgeable about all the animals (and we really grilled him on even the obscure bird species) - he knew everything about the animals’ habits, behaviour, you name it. Patience was another of his virtues that proved times and times again very critical - we would wait as long as we wanted to see aniamls in actions. I think how great a guide he is and how committed he is to making the experience truly once in a lifetime is best captured by our trip to Serengeti north to try and see the wildebeest and zebra migration across the Mara river. We were expecting to maybe see them cross once. Eddy managed to find not one, not two but three groups crossing, with each group more spectacular than the next. Even the camp staff where we were staying couldn’t believe he’d managed to find three groups for us to observe in one day! Honestly cannot recommend him enough! Thank you Eddy for making the trip so special - ahsante sana, rafiki!

One thing we would recomment -- skip lake Manyara and spend as much time as you can in central Serengeti. We found lake Manyara a bit underwhelming with very little to see, whereas our 4 days in Serengeti would gladly be extended.

The experience of a lifetime!
5/5

From the very beginning, Soul of Tanzania has provided us with a highly professional service.
We (couple and 2 teenagers) did a 4-day safari through Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
Our guide John was truly incredible and in addition to all the usual animals, he managed us to see 1 leopard (and its hunted gazelle), 2 cheetahs, 2 servals, and countless lions just a few meters from the jeep in 24 hours in the Serengeti.
Also noteworthy are the hot meals served at lunch during the safari, as well as the quality of all the suggested accommodations.
Thanks again Marta and John.

Truly a Signature of Excellence!
5/5

Seeing all the animals in their own habitat doesn’t come close to anything we’ve seen before.
All accomodations were superb, and the food delicious. SoT is I believe the only tour group that provide a lunchtime hot meal during the game drives most days.
Our guide Jovin was a excellent, with very keen eyesight and an abundance of information.
The days are long (~9-10 hours of game drives per day), so it was a pity we didn’t get to use the hotel facilities much, but it’s understandable as Jovin wanted to maximise the game drive time.
We did a 6 Nights, 7 Days tour - we felt this was plenty.
The canoeing experience at Lake Manyara was good fun but not what we were expecting. We were under the impression that it was a small lake and would therefore see the animals around the edge/ drinking from the lake. The lake is that big (and salt water) that you can’t see the borders and so we didn’t see any animals. So it was a fun experience but not quite what we were hoping for. The Hot Air Balloon Experience with the Champagne Breakfast was great. Very early morning start but the Sunrise from the balloon makes it worth it. Again, we expected to see animals concentrated together as on TV but in reality the expanse is so vast that they’re all spread out. Champagne full-English breakfast is set-up in an open area and was excellent - an elephant even came over to say hello!
Plenty of toilet facilities (very clean) and even wifi spots throughout the tour.
Lastly, our SoT tour booking operator Luis was magnificent. We had to rearrange our tour 3 times due to Covid, and each time he did it seamlessly. He provided lists of accomodations at each stop to suit our budget and requirements. He provided plenty of information on the different activities we could do throughout the tour. All the details were very easy to follow on his emails - an absolute pleasure to work with.
A Honeymoon we will never forget. Without a doubt would recommend SoT.

Fantastic experience, everything was great!!!
5/5

We went on a 6 day Safari visiting Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. It was an exceptional experience for all of us and especially for my 10-year-old daughter. Everything has been studied and organized by Soul of Tanzania in a perfect way. All the camps they chose for the overnight stay were above our expectations and Albert (our super prepared guide) was very good at taking us to the savannah and patient to show us animals, birds and plants explaining everything about them. To redo!! I especially thank Marta for the availability and promptness of her email responses during the organization of the tour.
