Worth the money and time we spent for the safari vacation!

We started our research for African safari almost 6 months before deciding to go with African Big Cats. after reviewing over 20+ agents and talking to around 5 companies we finally decided to go with Big Cats. They were very flexible with changing the itinerary based on our requirements, selection of hotels, meal plans etc. Till we landed in KIA airport we had doubts about how the whole thing will turn out but once we met our guide Lordie (Lordlugard Peter), he really eased us out of all the anxiety. Lordie made sure our vacation was everything about what we wanted and delivered it to our fullest satisfaction. His knowledge about the various parks, flora and funa in thorough detail was very educative. He took the time to explain about the animal behaviors and knew all the best stops to find the Big5! we were lucky to see lot of lion/lioness, elephants, cheetha, buffaloes. After 2nd day of safari we wanted to see different kind of animals together eg. zebras and giraffes or wildebeest and zebras, hippos etc. We saw 100s of zebras, wildebeest migration in central serengeti, rhinos in Ngorongoro crater. The food was really good especially given that we are vegetarians, Lordie went out of his way to work with the hotel staff to ensure that we go delicious food. I would definitely recommend them especially for first timers since they take very good care.

Professional, knowledgable, approachable, and kind.

Service was superb and the lodges they selected for our trip was fantastic! The respose to our emails were very swift and we had no trouble for booking and payment. The experience was beyond expectation, and we would love use African Big Cats again when we go to Tanzania again.
Our guide Levoi was great and he was able to find a cheetah in middle of nowhere using his knowledge, experience and eyesight. We were able to see all the animals we wanted to see(lions, leapards, cheetahs, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, hippos) and it was a once in a lifetime experience.

Great safari

We had an absolutely timeless safari in August 2022. Valence, our guide was excellent, customizing each day according to our desires, allowing us to fully enjoy this unique stay. Magnificent lodges with absolutely delicious food, perfect hospitality and breathtaking landscapes. We are leaving with the family in December 2023 and once again trust African Big Cats safari to make us dream a second time.

I have been on many safaris; you cannot find a better tour operator, experience, value than ABC S

I live in Denver, CO, USA but am from South Africa originally. I am a physician. I have been on numerous (over 30) safaris, including Kruger, luxury safaris near Kruger, Chobe, Okavango, but have always wanted to do the "big one" - Tanzania.
As you know, there are many different tour operators, so it was difficult to choose one. My son is a medical student (at Harvard), doing research in Dar Es Salaam. We wanted to do a Tanzanian owned and based safari, in order to try support their economy in our small way. He asked around and the consensus was ABC Safaris (African Big Cats).
I then looked at reviews and saw only 5 star reviews. I was a bit suspicious at first as it seemed too good to be true, but the reviews and their websites seemed genuine, so we went with them.
Best safari decision I have made.

Communication: excellent.
Justice, the organizer, Emmanuel, the owner, and our guide (Endeni) always answered promptly, politely, professionally, in a welcoming, reassuring and friendly manner. Their correspondence was informative and they addressed and answered all our (numerous) questions. We were never left guessing.

Flexibility: excellent.
We changed our itinerary a few times, making it 2 days longer, and included two hikes. This was never an issue with ABC - they gladly made all the changes we requested in a seamless and accommodating way, never making us feel we were being demanding or difficult.

Itinerary: excellent.
We went on the Ndutu Calving Luxury safari, to Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Manyara.
Numerous baby animals seen - so adorable.
Saw teeming game, more than I've ever seen, including their calves, of numerous different antelope, elephant, rhino, buffalo, hyena, eagles, vultures, numerous other birds, hippo, jackals etc etc. We saw "kills". We saw carcasses being eaten. We saw the big 5. We were part of the migration (not the crossing of the Mara River though - wrong season).

Accommodation: excellent.
Luxury glamping, lodges had awesome views, great abundant food, immaculately clean and comfortable, safe, and the staff are the friendliest nicest people you can imagine.

Vehicle: excellent.
There were three of us, my wife, son and myself, in an 8 seater. Comfortable Land Rover, with a roof that pops up so we could stand and look for and view game even while driving. Also has a fridge and chargers.

Guide: Unbelievable excellent!!!!
Endeni was the best guide and spotter I have ever met!! He knew the roads, how to find game, was so knowledgeable, patient, friendly, funny, kind, caring. Never tired of our questions. He honestly was BRILLIANT, the best, and I've met many guides in the past. Spoke excellent English.

Value: excellent.
For what we did, saw, got, the price was more than reasonable, fair, appropriate, affordable. Excellent value for the money.

Reliability: excellent.
We received everything we expected and asked for. Seriously, nothing went wrong, and it could not have gone better...

Side note: on the way to the airport, my son's flight was cancelled by Tanzania Air (not the most reliable airline...). He had to be in Dar the next morning. ABC had nothing to do with our transport/airline. Nonetheless, Endeni phoned Emmanuel, who then drove to Precision Air, booked my son a flight, paid for it, and "saved the day" - an example of how ABC went above and beyond...

Wonderful experience

We booked African Big Cats based on a recommendation online, and we are so happy we did! They were very responsive to emails and were helpful through multiple changes to our booking (we added people to the tour after our initial booking). They’re obviously happy to customize anything, although we went with the recommended package and were very happy. The guides were kind and informative, and the vehicles were in good shape and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this company.
