Great service and accommodation conditions

One of the greatest experiences while in Tanzania. The camp is new and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I wish I could stay there a little bit longer. The safari was just perfect, not so many cars, our guide gave his best to see all the animals, big thanks for that. The food at the camp was delicious and big portions. Only good words for the place. I recommend it. Unforgettable experience. Thanks.

Met all expectations and even more

Booked 3 days/2 nights tour in Selous Ngawa Camp. Booking manager Donatus was very helpful and customer oriented. The company provided a spacious jeep with lifted roof, which made it very comfortable for observing the environments and to take excellent pictures. The driver Michael, who accompanied us all three days, did his best to show us all sites and habitats of the Selous Game Reserve during 8,5 hours drive. As a result we met nearly all animals available in this area. River trip by boat on the first day has its charm despite the rain, which nevertheless was a value added to the venture (one should be aware that in case of rain it may be a bit could and windy in the boat, so wind jacket would be preferable). Walking on the fields on the last day was also remarkable, as we managed to see deers and some other creatures very near, and our local guide has given interesting info about flora and fauna around.
Ngawa camp provided nice bungalows, rather basic, but comfortable enough with private shower and terrace. Local restaurant was very tasty offering nice choice of meals (breakfast, lunch and donner) served in outer space with a buitiful view of the african plain and picturesque sunset.

Excellent service and hospitality

Highly recommended for a quick safari trip from Dar Es Salaam - the guides were excellent and very accommodating. Food was great as well. Good for those traveling on a budget!

Amazing safari

It has been a great safari. They adhered to what we had asked for, with a fairly tight price and the professionalism of Daniel, the guide, was 10 out of 10. Great accommodations, and the program was exactly what we had been proposed. It was a success to hire him with them.

absolutely perfect I recommend without hesitation

I recommend without hesitation! We were two young women just landed in Dar Es Salaam, the reservation was made from France without advance money, and Zacharria (our guide during the entire stay) directly picked us up at our hotel. We were only two for this trip which was a great comfort! After a few hours we arrived in the Mikumi reserve for a first afternoon safari! We have seen many wild animals (elephants, lions, gazelles, giraffes, zebras ...) unforgettable experience. We stayed in an absolutely superb camp with pool and bar, quality all-you-can-eat buffet for all meals. The next day great day with Zacharia that I highly recommend, lunch we had lunch in a small discreet restaurant in the middle of wild animals who came to bathe and drink at the edge of the water nearby, change of scenery guaranteed! We did not speak English very well, but our guide did everything to explain us about animals so we could understand everything! The last day was also very good although we asked to return earlier to Dar Es Salam so we could take our boat directly to Zanzibar. Zacharia took care of booking the boat tickets and deposited us in front of the controls so that we are protected from the fake agents present on the spot. Fortunately Zach was there for us, he helped us a lot! I hope I can come back one day to do Selou Park with this agency! Thank you for everything sincerely.
