A responsive operator yet to improve on value for money
3/5

We did a 3-day tour to Gombe national park to visit the chimpanzees.

The planning and organization was very professional, with very fast responses and someone was expecting us when we arrived.

Once in the park, the accommodation was as expected - mid-range tents - far from the premium and cleaning standard you may get in other Safari experiences.

The experience in the park was great. We got really close to the chimps, while respecting their boundaries and always well guided by the local experts. The staff was also great and food was very good.

Our rating of 3/5 stars is based on two main elements:
1) On the second day (out of 3 days program) we arrived at Kigoma at 4pm. First the driver left us in a wrong hotel - we’ve noticed that and finally were redirected to the one that had been communicated - Sunset Vista Hotel. Secondly, at Sunset Vista Hotel we were put first in a very small room with a tiny toilet and wifi internet wasn’t working. Joshua, the operator manager, was responsive to our complaint and came the hotel to upgrade us to a better room. The improved room was still far from the expectations over mid-range on European or Serengeti standards.
2) The overall price of 350 USD per day is clearly overpriced - as 1st you profit only 2 out of 3 days, as the 3rd day you travel early in the morning back to Dar. And 2nd, you’re paying luxury daily rates when comparing to Serengeti, while getting a mid/low range service.

Overall we were very happy to see chimps from very close and Joshua was very professional and responsive.
We hope this constructive feedback improves the overall service delivery for future travelers.

I was happy with the service. Joshua is excellent manager.
5/5

I was very happy with the service. They arranged for me chimpanzees trekking in Gombe NP. Everything was great. Joshua is excellent manager. He has answered all my questions and even he helped me to get to Kigoma. I was travelling by bus from Arusha. I highly recommend this company. I plan to visit Burundi soon and definitely I will ask Gombe Track Safari to organise my trip through Burundi.

Excellent organisation
5/5

We had the best 3 days Mikumi Safari from Dar Es Salaam. Thank you for this journey. We had a very emotional journey with you and yours guys. Thank you Joshua !!!

Good price, beautiful private safari experiences
5/5

3 days package from Dar Es Salaam to Selous
Everything was great, our driver was a cool guy with professional driving skills :).
Lot of water during whole three days.. boat, driving and walking safari were very interesting and nice.
Accommodation in Ngalawa Selous Camp was also 5/5, great food, room and pool.
- We did not see lions, because it was really hot and they were hidden. Maybe next time!
I recommend.

Chimp Trekking Beyond Wildest Expectations
5/5

My husband and I were blown away with the chimp trekking at Gombe. The guide was fantastic and it was clear that he had such a passion for the chimps and respecting their space. We were able to see the chimps hunting, playing, fighting with baboons, and so much more. We will never forget feeling so lucky to be experiencing their human like behaviors in person! Our accommodations were as expected and a step up from camping, but we knew that going in and it was fine. Our cabin had everything we needed for the night. Our boat operator, chef, and the man who provided our transport throughout the trip were all top notch!
