Perfectly Coordinated and Incredible Service!
5/5

We booked a private 8-day safari in Tanzania in Jan/Feb 2021 and were extremely impressed by Soul of Tanzania.

First, during the trip Onesmo, our safari guide, did a truly incredible job taking time to understand our needs and tailoring the game drives and conversations to exceed our expectations. He was tremendously thoughtful each day and evening with briefings so that we knew what to expect for the day and provided options for how to maximize our time doing things that we loved the most. He was proactive in helping us search for and see so many wild animals and had the knowledge throughout the game drives to answer our questions about each animal we encountered - including dozens and dozens of birds! The guides that care for you during the safari definitely make or break the experience and we are lucky that Soul of Tanzania employed Onesmo to care for us.

Second, prior to the trip Sandy, our Soul of Tanzania journey designer, was extremely responsive and helpful in arranging our itinerary. Even a week or so prior to our trip we had to reroute nearly all of our itinerary to add in a COVID test per our government requirements and Sandy did so within a day. Truly fantastic service! During the planning process, each individual is given such great care and attention. We exchanged probably hundreds of emails during planning and every time the response was not only very fast but also extremely helpful.

In summary - we would absolutely recommend Soul of Tanzania to our friends and family. Thank you for an incredible safari!

The most organized, well planned and well executed trip of my life.
5/5

My husband and I went on a 18 day honeymoon trip to Tanzania in September 2020. Our honeymoon was organized with Luis, he was so helpful, treated us with so much kindness, and patience. Every request we made was met. We were quite nervous about booking a trip during COVID-19 and had a lot of questions about Tanzania’s protocols and Luis response time was really quick and he informed us of everything we should expect. Soul of Tanzania took a lot of precautions to make sure we were safe. Luis also created the best itinerary for us! The amount of effort to make us feel good about our choice was the sweetest guesture and it left us speechless. Our trip was so organized and so well thought out. Once we arrived in Tanzania our guide Steve worked very hard to make sure we saw all of nature and the beauty Tanzania has to offer. He was so amazing, we are very grateful towards him. Steve was very educated and taught us a lot about nature and we had the best experience with him. We became a family and it was the biggest take away for me. We would start our adventures at 8 am everyday. Steve though would be up 2 hours before to make sure the cruiser was in tip top shape and properly sanitized so our day would go very smoothly. Every hotel we stayed at was impeccable. We were treated with so much kindness and care. We truly believe we could never experience something like this in any other country with any other tour. On the safari it was very clear the difference in the way Soul of Tanzania treated clients than other companies did. Every day we received the best hot lunches and Steve took us to the best places first. We were always first on the scene and saw the best show! We saw the big 5 animals, we saw the great migration of 2 million wildebeest crossing the Maya river, We saw the most intense hunts just a few meters from our vehicle. It was the most surreal experience watching live what we would see on National Geographic. The most surprising thing for me was how breathtaking the landscape was. Every morning we would see the most glorious sunrises and every night we would be humbled with the most beautiful sunsets. The noise you hear when it is completely silent in the wilderness is a phenomenon I cannot explain. We heard the thunder of the wildebeest footsteps, we heard the Erie laughing of hyenas near our camp at night, we heard the magnificent roaring of Lions and the trumpeting of Elephants always left us speechless and in awe. We live in Canada and it is currently the dead of winter, we reminisce about our trip constantly and the beautiful weather in Tanzania everyday. Our videos and stories has made all of our friends and family praying to go to Tanzania and get the chance we got. We will always recommend soul of Tanzania to everyone we know. Thank you very much Soul of Tanzania and if we could come back we definitely will come back to Tanzania in a heart beat. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have the best honeymoon any couple could possibly have. If you are thinking about booking a trip to Tanzania, you will not regret it! Book with Soul of Tanzania to get the best experience of your life!

Amazing solo and first time safari
5/5

Soul of Tanzania is a very professional and responsive team to plan an amazing safari there.
My planner helped me to organize the best tour within less than 5 days before it started.
Everything was smooth and well organized, driver was one of the best (+20 years experience and great eyes).
I've been able to see all animals in a couple of days
Price is a bit high but you know what you pay for: quality

My Safari Was Beyond My Dreams
5/5

I've been waiting almost 60 years for this trip. I'm so glad I didn't wait any longer. This was the GREATEST trip of my life! Every day brought new adventures, animals, and smiles. My guide, DANIEL, was a perfect fit for what I was looking for. He knows where to find the tough-to-find animals, has eagle-eyes, and he knew his birds. He was personable and thoughtful of my special situation. He was a joy to be with for our 14 days - not easy to be for 2 weeks all the time. He went beyond the call of duty to make sure I was happy. I HIGHLY recommend Daniel Mkojera for your guide/driver. The other guides follow him. 14 years experience and always bright everyday.
The Land Cruiser vehicle had plug-ins for charging, a cold electric cooler, comfy seats, pop-up roof, and of course a hot lunch each day. West Kilimanjaro, Tarangire, Manyara, Eyasi, Ngorongoro, & Central/Northern Serengeti were the parks plus 3 villages: Maasai, Datoga, Hadzabe. I wouldn't leave out any of it.

We were in very special moments among the animals. Highlights: I saw the Big 5 and some of the Little 5: Cheetahs & lions hunting, all kinds of baby animals, elephants doing all that they do, my visits to 3 different less touristy tribal villages and the Great Migration to mention the highlights. My favorite memories: a baby white rhino (on my separate day trip in Kenya to Lake Nakuru arranged by Luis), 2 lionesses spreading out to trap their prey, zebras lined up in a defensive posture, listening to a lion sleeping, hunting with the Hadzabe, watching giraffes run, seeing a serval cat, and having my own stampede of wildebeests-zebras-giraffes in front of my final camp on my final night.

Every part of my trip starting with my arrival in Nairobi airport until my departure from Zanzibar was taken care of - even the various transfers. Every part was detailed so there were no surprises. I asked PLENTY of questions before the trip & ALL were patiently answered by Luis, my safari designer. Pretty much from when I arrived until I left - my days were all laid out according to MY plans and each day had flexibility to small changes. I traveled solo so I could have the flexibility that I needed. Soul of Tanzania has no problem setting up private safaris for just you & your family. I loved my standard lodging/tent camps - it was hardly "standard". The food at each place was very good - nothing was skimped. Everywhere we went - the staffs were outstanding. I am hard-pressed to find a complaint - other than that it had to end.
For someone who had never been here I have no hesitation to recommend Daniel, Luis and Soul of Tanzania to design your own dream.
If your dream is to go on safari then please do it now. Tanzania relies on tourism and every worker needs us badly for their livelihood.

Trip of a lifetime!!
5/5

Just got back from spending 17 days in Tanzania, 3 days in Arusha, 10 days on safari and finished with 4 days on the beach in Zanzibar. Soul of Tanzania was absolutely fabulous. Helena, who helped me put it all together was great, very professional, quick to respond to my many questions and to give me ideas based on what I was looking for.
I can't say enough about Jacob Msangi, my guide. From taking me out for an afternoon of seeing Arusha and do a little shopping, on his own time, to his knowledge of the animals and things I was seeing. I truly feel like I've made a new friend! When you are travelling solo, spending 10 days with someone, you just hope that you form a bond and I believe we did. He was the best thing about the safari experience.
Seeing I went during the Covid pandemic I'm so thankful I didn't cancel or reschedule as it was a trip of a lifetime!
You can use Soul of Tanzania with great confidence and if you are lucky enough to have Helena and Jacob on your side, I know you will have a great time!!
Thanks again on showing me the trip of a lifetime!!
