Far exceeded our expectations
5/5

Our first safari experience was phenomenal. I was apprehensive about selecting a safari and feel extremely fortunate that I choice Vimat Safaris. Vincent was quick to respond and help customize our trip. The trip from the beginning was incredible. Our tour guide, Peter went out of his way to create the best experience for us. It is obvious that Peter has a passion for wildlife and we benefited. We were able to enjoy a diversity of lodging experiences including a coffee plantation and luxury tents; all extremely nice. We highly recommend Vimat Safaris.

ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES OF OUR LIVES
5/5

My wife and I went to Arusha to do a 5 days 4 nights Safari with Vimat Safaris. Since we wanted to live a full experience, we chose a tent safari among the three possibilities (luxury, lodges or tents). We preferred to talk to different local agencies directly instead of doing it in our country because it is much more expensive when you need intermediaries to book it for you. We decided to book the safari with Vimat because of 3 main things: the price, the service and the personnel. Vincent is such a nice person and helps you out with everything you need. In a sign of gratitude, we wanted to post a very descriptive comment, because they are a growing company and it was a bit difficult for us to find some valuable information about them (although everything we found was 5/5).

Reservation -> All the reservation was made via email. It was a fluent conversation and Vincent kindly answered all our questions really quick and adjusted to our need of safari, even though we had to change the dates of our trip. In order to book the safari, they asked us to pay a deposit of 20% in advance. Vimat works with different foreign currency accounts, which makes it easier to do the deposit. We had some issues because of the bank but, thankfully, everything got solved and Vincent was really helpful solving the problem. The most important thing for us was that Vimat only offers private safaris, which in the first place does not seem that important but once you are in the safari, you really appreciate the privacy and space.

Arrival at Arusha -> Vincent was at the airport to pick us up with our guide Rama so that we could meet before starting the safari. They also came with the same car we were going to use for the trip. They drove us to our hotel and helped us with getting a sim card for the safari days. We arranged the meeting for the next day in the hotel to start our safari.

Car -> The car had all the needs to enjoy a full safari experience. It had enough space to bring all the tent accessories and luggage we brought. The seats had such space to be comfortable all day long. The car had an open roof that Rama kindly prepared each day so that we could have a full view of the animals and landscape. The car was equipped with two international plugs to charge our phones and camera.

Tent -> Rama (our guide) and Emmanuel (our cook) built our tent once we arrived at the camping sites. We had two thin yet comfortable mattress with two pillows that made our rest easier. They also offered sleeping bags, but we carried our own. The tent had sufficient space to fit the mattress together with our luggage. It was a really roomy tent.

Food -> Emmanuel first asked us if we had any special allergies or intolerances in order to prepare the menu. Once we arrived to the camping sites, Emmanuel offered us everyday some coffee or tea and some popcorn. Lunch was usually packed to eat at the different parks, and dinner was served at the camping sites. Even though the food was delicious, Emmanuel always made more food than we could eat, maybe it is a cultural thing, but it actually surprised us. He also took care of us preparing two bottles of water per person in the car.

Camping Sites -> The camping sites chosen by Vimat were really nice places in the middle of nature. They all had bathrooms and showers with hot water.

Guide -> Rama was a really nice person and experienced guide in Tanzania. He knew all the places to go and the best ways to get to see all kind of animals. He was very kind and worried about us so that we could stay with the animals we saw as much time as we wanted and trying to look for the best angle to see them and take pictures.

Parks -> In our program we wanted to do Lake Manyara, Taranguire, Ngorongoro and Serengueti. It was perfect because we could see all the different parks very well. However, if we had to rate the different parks, we would say Ngorongoro and Serengueti first, Tanranguire second and Lake Manyara in the last place. If we had known how it was going to be, maybe we would have tried to enjoy one more day in Serengueti because it is such a big area that we could not spot the different parts in only one day.

We hope this will help many tourists to clarify if this is the kind of safari they want to experience. We could not be more happy with Vimat, a really trusty and reliable company which wants to offer the best safari to their clients.

Excellent private safari with experienced and reliable company - highly recommend!
5/5

We are not new travelers to Tanzania or Africa. This was our 10th African safari and 4th in Tanzania. From our first email and phone conversations we knew we had selected the right company. Vimat Safaris was highly recommended to us, and they did not disappoint us in any detail. We were very specific about our interests and expectations for a guide. Not only did the owner Vincent pair us with an excellent wildlife guide, he made excellent suggestions to our itinerary and ensured that every detail was covered from our arrival at Arusha airport to our departure 21 days later. Our accommodations were choice with excellent locations. Our guide was expert in both tracking the wildlife and making us aware of unique and interesting behaviors. We enjoyed his humor and knowledge. Even though this was our 4th migration experience, we learned much from him and appreciated his excellent driving skill in rough conditions. It was by far our best safari experience ever. Thanks to Vincent and Peter for the experience of a lifetime!

From start to finish........amazing!
5/5

Wow, I can not say enough about Vimat Safaris. We had to book last minute (the day before) and Vincent was fantastic. He managed to secure all the accommodation and provide us with THE BEST guide.
The value for money can not be beat and the expience will last me a life time.
The whole experience was great; from my first communication with Vincent to being dropped off at the airport by our amazing guide. EVERYTHING ran smoothly.
Accommodation was mid range (as per our request) and awesome. The guide, Godlizen, knew exactly where to go to find all of the big 5 (and more!) I would highly recommend Vimat Safaris.

Fantastic Trip with Vimat Safari!!!
5/5

Vimat Safari was an amazing experience! The planning with Vincent was great as we had many questions and wanted to make sure our Safari was the schedule we wanted since we wanted to take advantage of every minute. Vincent from Vimat was kind, professional and accommodating to every need. The planning was perfect! We had our guide with Bonaface who was on time every morning he made sure we saw all the animals, personally my dream was to see Lions, cheetah and leopard.. I had no expectations as I know from previous Safari in South Africa that it’s not easy to spot the cats. Our guide did a phenomenal job as we saw 34 lions .. 10 cheetah and 2 leopards up close and personal. It was incredible!!!!!! This was the most amazing Safari experience I have ever had.. the car also had chargers for your the phone, drinks and snacks... super comfortable.. we did the private tour and it was worth every penny. I highly recommend Vimat Safari as they are well prepared, professional, accommodating with great experience to find the animals. The Safari did not disappoint.. they gave us a dream come true Safari!!! Tanzania!!! Wow!!!
