Unforgettable 7 day safari and Kilimanjaro hike with Saladini & Gilbert

My husband and I went on a 7 day safari with Lion King Adventures in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Maynara and Tarangire.

We really enjoyed working with our guide, Gilbert. If you go on a safari, you should request Gilbert. He has eyes like an eagle and spotted many animals. He worked his hardest to ensure we saw the Big 5! We even spotted a black rhino in the Serengeti which is rare. We found 8 lion cubs (my favorite). He shared his extensive knowledge of animals, plants, culture and history. We appreciated that he is a skilled and safe driver which is important on the rough roads. One of Gilbert’s impressive qualities is that he has a kind heart to help others. There are so many examples but I will share 3: A car flipped over after speeding through a sharp turn on gravel so Gilbert ran to help by using his tow rope and a car jack to flip the car over and save the passengers, he helped another guide change a flat tire in the dark during a night game drive, and he helped guides who need directions because he always knows where we are. Finally, his personality is relaxed- when you want something it’s always hakuna matata! It would not have been this incredible of an experience without Gilbert.

The company overall has been flexible with adjusting for changes due to the pandemic. Rose built a personalized itinerary with a competitive price. The manager Pendo gave us detailed communication before the safari which gave us confidence that the company will handle everything professionally. The safari vehicles are comfortable (cushions, charging station, high vantage point, top that can be raised, 2 spare tires, binoculars, unlimited water, soda, beer, and Gilbert cleaned it every night). They even gave us 2 bottles of wine with our names on them! We enjoyed the mid-range accommodations (but you can choose luxury or budget). Our favorite place was Embalakai in central Serengeti.

Overall we had an experience we will never forget. I’d highly recommend working with Lion King Adventures and Gilbert if you’re planning a safari in Tanzania.

After enjoying the 7 day safari with Gilbert, my husband and I decided to use Lion King Adventures again for a Kilimanjaro day hike. Our mountain guide was Saladini and Gilbert was our driver. We had a great experience. It was a nice way to get a taste of Kilimanjaro without doing the full trek to the summit.

Saladini is a mountain professional. He has 12 years of experience and he’s also training people to become guides. He has a fun personality, even singing to us while hiking. He knows a lot about the mountain, animals, plants, and history. He took many pictures for us. He even carried my backpack for some of the uphill part. He also had a surprise for us when we got to the crater.

About the day hike- it’s the Marangu route (the route you are allowed to do out and back). You’re going to a crater 20 min past the first camp and then coming back down. A little over 13 miles in about 6.5 hours. 4 up, 2 down, break for lunch and viewpoint. You need to exit the park by 5pm so it’s an early start. Pendo coordinates everything beforehand. Saladini met us for a briefing the day before the hike. Gilbert got us there and back safely, waited for us and drove us back to Arusha. You’ll get lunch and plenty of water. Overall a great experience.

Excellent organization, experience and support

I was lucky with a very supporting organizer able to help and organize everything in line with continuous changes of my flights booked. Thank you Pendo, I will remember you.
I was lucky with a very expert driver that explained a lot of things and guided us in a very professional way. I cannot imagine a better person for this job. Thank you Good Luck, we will remember you

I would choose Lion King again

Great comunications and customer service from beggining to end. Our luggages got to Tanazania one day late and Lion king took care of everything for us. Everything went as planned. They are flexible and when possible will acomodate you sugestions and changes in itinerary. Good car, good food, etc...overall great customer service.
A special mention to our driver Goodluck, he is a great person an excellent driver and even a better tour guide. Very knowledgable and great sense of humor. I asked him a million questions and didn´t catch him once ):
He takes great pride on his job and really cares for nature and wildlife.
On top of everything, if you are into bird watching (I was not before this trip) you should make sure to book the safari with him.

Gilbert was an encyclopedia of knowledge. He was very friendly and spotted animals from a mile away!

We had the most amazing experience with Lion King Adventures. We planned a last minute safari trip. The staff was very professional and responded to emails within minutes. They were able to customize our trip to include everything we wanted at the price point we wanted. The accommodations were absolutely beautiful. We cannot say enough positive things about our tour guide Gilbert. He has the most amazing eye and was so professional and friendly. He knew the name of every single animal, plant and bird we ever asked him. We truly had such a wonderful time and loved every minute of our trip. We would highly recommend booking a safari with Lion King Adventures!!

Amazing Experience, great professionalism

We have spent 5 days in the hands of Lion King Adventures and we couldn't ask for a better experience. we really appreciated also the responsiveness over email when organizing the whole trip. Really happy!
