Incredible Experience! They were so helpful and knowledgeable
The tour was amazing. Our guide, Goodluck, was able to help provide us so much information on the animals and the accommodations were fantastic.
Spectacular! Our driver Peter and Benson made everything a complete family memory.
Pendo from Benson communicated with whenever we had questions. It was very professional and easy even with multiple changes.
The Safari was beyond expected and our expectations were very high.
Peter knew how far he could push our family each day and managed to score some amazing siting late in the day 3 times. We seemed to have booked an excellent time of year with lush greenery and 57 different animals spotted over our 9 days.
Safari is not a "vacation" but an adventure experience and I was glad our youngest of 3 was 18. We had 6 people in the Land Cruiser and that was a full vehicle.
We choose to mid - luxury level accomedations and were blown away by the places we stayed. Lovely to have a great room and food at the end of 8-10 hours on the road.
I would highly recommend Benson and especially Peter. In fact I'm sure I will be back.

Trip of a life time.
I can’t describe how great this trip was. Peter our tour guide was knowledgeable, patient and very helpful explaining many aspect of the culture in this part of the world.
Excellent safari organised with smooth proficiency, meeting and exceeding our expectations
Benson Safaris Tanzania were excellent from the start, with good clear communication. We were able to amend the proposed itinerary to suite our requirements with ease.
The service provided was excellent with everything going to plan, with all transfers running smoothly. The vehicles and driver, guide were as described and a great way to explore for the two of us with lots of space for animal viewing, being able to move easily about the vehicle and with chargers for keeping batteries charged, and coolers for cold drinks. The game viewing was exceptional. We saw all we had hoped for and more.
A vehicle breakdown was dealt with with little disruption following a temporary repair, with a replacement vehicle arriving quickly to prevent any disruption to our tour.
As well as excellent safari viewing a surprising highlight was the cultural visit to the HadzabeBush People and Datoga Tribe at Lake Eyasi.
All of the hotels and tented lodges recommended and chosen were superb, in great locations and with excellent service
Every part of the trip was excellent
Having recently completed a ten day holiday safari in Tanzania I can heartily endorse Benson Safaris. This local Tanzanian operator stands back for no-one! Their organization was excellent, with Pendo attending to all our group's queries and requests and together a most suitable itinerary was drawn up. We were in two vehicles and our guides, Amini and Peter, were outstanding: experienced, resourceful, patient and showing genuine interest in the animals and birds. As amateur birders we kept Amini busy identifying the many, many birds we saw. He has an amazing knowledge of birds and always had his bird book handy for more details. If birding is your thing, Amini is your man.
October was an excellent time to visit, with pleasant temperatures and no bugs. Being mostly open savanna, it is wonderfully easy to spot animals in the Serengeti and we were not disappointed. I was also impressed with how the guides from different outfits co-operate with each other to give everyone a viewing chance when there was a popular animal sighting.
The Maramboi and Kubu Kubu tented lodges we stayed in were a delight, with beautiful rooms and great atmosphere. The welcome on arriving at Maramboi was exceptionally warm and caring, and a shout-out to the staff at Kubu Kubu who were ceaselessly friendly whether early in the morning or late at night. At both lodges there are no fences and one can see animal tracks on the paths around the lodge when you step out in the morning – a wonderful experience for a city dweller.
My thanks to Benson Safaris, Benson, Pendo, Peter and Amini for a wonderful experience.
