The best tour operator, ever.

My husband and I had the most beautiful trip 3 in Tanzania and Zanzibar with Shadows of Africa. Our tour operator, Karen, was able to understand all our needs and accomplished them over any expectations! We have spent two weeks in Tanzania mainland, starting from Mount Kilimangiaro (day hike with our amazing guide Amir and overnight at the beautiful Simba farm lodge), then we move to Arusha and Arusha National park (overnight at the amazing Olerai lodge) where we had the most exciting walking safari. We visited olpopongi masai village and then we have started our safari tour, together with Charles, our amazing safari guide that accompanied us all the way through. He was super professional, available and discrete. He became a unique friend! We have visited Tarangire national park (a quite small park with lots of wild animals), Serengeti national park (wide and amazing) and finally the Ngorongoro crater (unbelievable!!). Charles allowed us to see all the big 5s, gnu migration and so more. We have really enjoyed every moment, living the nature and the culture at 360⁰C. We have finally moved to 1 week relax in Zanzibar where we had the most beautiful spice tour and safari Blue (kwale island) with our expert and friendly guide Mohamed. We spent three days in matemwe (zanzibar queen, beautiful resort) and three days in jambiani (blue moon, excellent hotel with direct and private access to the magnificent sea). We strongly suggest everyone, staring from our family and friends, to visit Tanzania and particularly to rely on Shadows of Africa for the tour organization. Everything was terrific, trekking, safari, accomodations and food. More than we have ever imagined. We will come back in Tanzania with Shadows. For sure.

A+ Mt. Kilimanjaro Guided Hike on Marangu Route

The entire Shadows of Africa experience was amazing! From easy trip booking with Alex to finishing the Marangu Route trek, our tiem with Shadows of Africa was fantastic. Our guides Amiri and Mkumbo demonstrated their professional guide experience through their vast knowledge of Mt. Kilimanjaro history, the mountain environment, and natural wildlife. They gave us confidence the entire way that we would summit safely and they made the experience very fun and enjoyable. Our group would all highly recommend Shadows of Africa and particularly Amiri and Mkumbo to others wanting to trek Mt. Kilimanjaro! 5 stars!

Highly recommended!!!

Our trip to Africa was an amazing experience, and Shadows of Africa made it happen. We spent 7 days in central and Northern Tanzania, touring through the Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti. We saw hundreds animals daily, with many animals right next to our jeep. We slept in a different lodge or tent camp each night, and we were well taken care of. Gerald Killian was our tour guide for this week, and he was friendly, knowledgeable , accommodating, and was invested in our good experience. After our safari, Shadows of Africa arranged a flight to Zanzibar and we enjoyed Stone Town and an all inclusive resort for a little R and R.

Shadows of Africa provided us with a fantastic and marvelous adventure!

My husband planned our trip to Africa with Jake. Jake was available, helpful and knowledgeable about everything we wanted to know about and do in Africa. We went to Rwanda first where we did a gorilla trek and visited the golden monkeys. Our experience there with Kenneth as our guide/driver was absolutely phenomenal in every way. Then we flew to Tanzania where we visited Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. Assad was our first contact in Tanzania. He held up a sign for us at the airport and delivered us to our first hotel. He was creative, responsible and nice to us. Then we met Dickson, who was an amazing guide/driver. He was enthusiastic, experienced and capable. He explained so many aspects of animal life to us, and told us all kinds of things about the people and culture in Africa. He was passionate about his work, and could even sometimes predict animal behavior. We were able to see lions, zebras, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, gazelles, jackals, hippos, several antelope species, warthogs, buffalo, wildebeests, hyenas, a crocodile, dung beetles, turtles, a snake called a puff adder, chameleons, ostriches, flamingos and many other bird species, a monitor lizard, and more. At the end of our trip, we spent one night at the Maasai Lodge in Arusha. This was a very interesting and valuable part of our trip! We highly highly recommend the Shadows of Africa organization and the people who helped us. They were available, caring and professional. Everything went well and they communicated extremely well. The food was delicious and all of the accommodations worked out well.

Amazing experience

We had the absolute best time with our guide Edwin in Tanzania!
The planning was perfect, we never had to worry our selves about anything and could be certain that our tour will be excellent.
Everything was perfect, but our guide made our experience unforgettable. He is one of the most friendly people that I have ever met, always had a smile on his face, helped us with everything and last but not least has a great understanding of Tanzania, the area, the people, the wildlife.
We really enjoyed our experience with Shadows of Africa and our guide Edwin.
We would 100% without a doubt recommend them to any body.
