I am very happy I chose this company, the reviews speak for themselves. We did the 7 day luxury, and it was quite amazing. Each place we stayed at was beautiful and the people working there were beautiful.
I planned the trip by speaking to James, and James is very responsive and really cares that we enjoy our experience. We had a small issue and right away James was able to fix it. Very reliable and flexible as a company. Every dollar was worth it!
Our tour guide Ozzie was exceptional. He made the trip great for us. He really cared that we saw the best things possible. We saw the big five and cheetahs all up close and I believe it was because of Ozzie’s skill, care, and knowledge. We learned so much from him. He even planned a surprise for my birthday with the hotel! We are already planning our next trip back and are going to request him!! Book with Lion King Adventures!
Highly Recommend. They took care of everything
I highly recommend Lion King Adventures. They are a locally owned and operated company in Tanzania specializing in Safaris. I sent them a list of things I wanted to do for our honeymoon, and they came back with a complete itinerary that hit my high points and was within my budget. They were very responsive while we finalized the itinerary.
Once on the trip, we did not have to worry about a thing. We were picked up from the airport and had the same driver and vehicle daily. The driver, Yosuf, spoke good English and always tried to work around what we wanted to do. We even made detours to pharmacies, clothing stores, and gift shops on the way to and from different national parks.
During the flight there our bag was lost by the airline. The support staff in the office worked with the airline to find the bag and deliver it to our hotel. I did not have to do a thing except file the initial claim.
It was a great trip.
From defining our objectives to executing the safari, we couldn't ask for more. Fabulous!
Planning the safari
Anna ,who took over the administration part of the project, from Nick Anderson, did a great job. Indeed, she communicated very effectively. Each of my questions got the answer within 24 hours. A real pro!
Executing the safari
Our three guides, Mwita, Immanuel, Salhe, were part of the team: they knew the "place", they anticipated when flexibility was required and they were friendly people with a superb sense of humor.. We were so pleased to invite them for dinner because it is not always easy to satisfy such a large and diversified group.
The lodges where very confortable especially the bathroom and the food was good (One doesn't go to the" Jungle"to enjoy every
day a three star restaurant.....)
Thank you to the management of Lion King who made this trip the dream of a life......
Fred Chesam was excellent in all aspects of the safari.
Fred was an excellent tour guide. We saw all the animals we dreamed of. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, rhinos and more. Fred was fun to spend time with. The jeep was spotless everyday. The lunches were fantastic. He was extremely conscientious and answered all the questions we had including the area culture. We enjoyed all our dinner conversations with Fred. You could tell he was on good terms with the staff of all the places he stayed. Fred deserves more than a 5 star rating.
We were thrilled with the reliability and hospitality we received both from our guide Gilbert and the tour operator Lion King.
All of our accommodations exceeded our expectations, and were very clean however the food became repetitious after a week. Main dishes consisted of overcooked chicken or meat in a variety of sauces with either rice or potatoes and vegetables. ( I assume this is generic for all tour operators depending on the pricing level. )
A hot lunch was provided everyday while we were in transit. Each lodge or camp provided the lunch for the next day.
We moved five times during a week long safari and although we covered a lot of ground and saw over 85 species of birds, reptiles and animals, I would have preferred a slower pace, maybe move only three times in a week and have more down time. This was a personal preference and I would not say the our entire group of four people would agree!
In the end, I would not hesitate to recommend Lion King.
