Wonderful three days in Gombe with additional diving
5/5

I spent wonderful three days organised by Gombe Track Safaris in Gombe National Park. Everything went perfectly smoothly in the organisation starting with being transferred from the airport to the private boat and on to Gombe. Within the park I had a nice room in the main buliding, great food provided by my own cook and wonderful moments hiking through the park and sitting along for hours with chimpanzee families and watching them playing and later going swimming in Lake Tanganyaka. On my way back, I made two dives in the lake which were awesome given the amount of different fish with an incredible amount of different patterns in its waters. Thank you for the wonderful time and absolutely recommendable.

once in a liftetime experience
5/5

Well organised, flexible for any solution, Joshua was our organiser but keep in mind that the park have rangers as tourguide, so do not expect that Joshua will do the tour but he is take care that you will have the best tour guide there (Isaiah was for us and he is doing this for 13 years! he was very great, have deep knowledge and respect for the nature). The food was very nice well presentet and a LOT :D we were very happy to be there. the park, the hike the chimpanzee were all amazing, the people there are soo nice! If you fly on the last day of the tour take it into conciderations that early flight might be risky as you take a boat, so you may go back to kigoma the day before to be sure you have your flight in the morning. so if you plan to sleep there 2 night I suggest to have an extra night after in Kigoma. Also if you fly in or out somewhere else than Dar el Salaam ask Joshua before he will be flexible if its possible to book you an other internal flight if your final destination isn't Dar el Salaam :)

Available and responsive
5/5

Very good experience in Gombe, Joshua was very responsive and found a last minute solution following the cancellation of our international flight.

We loved seeing the chimpanzees.

Amazing tour for Chimp trekking
5/5

I booked this chimp trekking tour and it was one of the best things I did during my 2-month stay in Tanzania! The communication beforehand was flawless, all guides, cooks and drivers involved were very professional, and during the tour everything was taken care of. I saw so many chimpanzees! Thanks a lot for this amazing tour!

Please beware of this sweet speaking cheater
1/5

I booked my 3nights and 4 days Salous safari through this travel agency and that's the biggest mistake I have done in 2021 before the year end.
I have spent $645 per head for 2 of us for a private tour instead of direct booking through the hotels website which would cost me $404/person for the same tour. I want a peaceful safari during the year end and change of career as per my choice Beavis of photography and what I got
1. The open Car - the car they provided as per my request, doesn't have the permit to enter in national park and stopped by the official today morning.
2. The 2nd car, which take us from Dar es salaam to Salous and back had different problem, once that car stopped you need some help to push the car to start, it's almost a 40 years old car, I feel pity for the driver Mike who is a nice person and good driver and always try to help with a smile.
3. I would like to take a name knowingly it's the great Joshua(owner of the Gombe tours company) the great story teller and full of commitments which never be fulfilled and he will definitely will never talk to you once you started complaining about anything during your tour instead one of his so called agent(Yusuf) will speak to you and always try to prove that everything is your luck and fault and they are the best.

For your information I back to Dar es Salaam after 2 nights without spending the 3rd night there because I can't tolerate such nonsense service anymore. What a bad start of new year.

I don't recommend this guys as I feel I got cheated and not be treated well after paying full amount on the first day.

It's better to book hotel directly and book car from hotel for your safari, so that you can pay at hotel and there will be someone in person present to listen your complain if any. This middleman short terms traders are the problem in Tanzania. Most of them doesn't have their own car, doesn't have their own guide they just have ample time to response on your first query to make you fool and then they take good amount and pay for worst service to serve you, they will ensure 3rd graded rooms in a hotel, old hired car without any maintenance or paper sometime and you never saw them in person.
However I have visited, Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Ndutu, North Serengeti, Zanzibar, Mikumi during last one year with few other renowned travel agencies who are really good and professional., Shadow of Africa, Amo Zanzibar tour and safari, African quinsang adventure safari are few of them where I got full value for money. Good luck.
