Excellent service

It was one of my dream trips, it finally came true. We took a private tour which was by far the best option for us. Thanks to the extraordinary effort of our guide Moison, we were able to see the big 5 in one morning. I recommend Aardvark because the organization was excellent and they gave us all the help to minimize the impact of our luggage not arriving on time.

Amazing, trustworthy, and professional operator!!!

My wife and I went on our honeymoon to Tanzania and Zanzibar in August 2022 for 2.5 weeks.

When researching luxury safari options, I found Aadvark Expeditions run by Philemon Joel. They offered pretty much the same luxury packages as other operators but for a more reasonable price and is being run by locals rather than a US company.

Speaking and arranging the plan for the 6/7 day safari was seamless, with Philemon Joel super cooperative and extremely responsive over WhatsApp. I was initially concerned with sending money over a wire 30 days before arriving, but after some more research I found this to be typical for this industry (as they need the money to book the Safari). In fact, Philemon Joel, agreed to accept 50% wire and the other 50% in cash on arrival. Philemon Joel also provided references from other tourists from my country which was great!

In addition, Philemon Joel was super flexible when it came to creating the perfect trip for our honeymoon.

Donatas, our driver, was incredible! He was super flexible with regards to times leaving for game drives and made a lot of extra effort to ensure we saw the best animals (including the elusive cheetahs and leopards) and had the best experience possible.

Also when our trip ended Philemon Joel was eager to collect feedback for how he can improve the experience for future tourists.

I can’t recommend enough using these guys! This was an unforgettable experience!!! If we get the chance to do this again, we will certainly go with Aadvark Expeditions!

La nature en grand

We traveled for 5 days with this local tour operator. We enjoyed nature in a big way, everything we expected happened, the herds of elephants, lions, leopards and even a hyena at breakfast skirting our camp.
What to say about safaris in Tanzania starts with a general impression, people are kind, smiling, welcoming.
On safari companies there are a large number of them and I think all tourists are happy.
this was our case, we had hotels and luxury tent camps of great qualities, a friendly driver.
We will undoubtedly return, because it is impossible to get tired of this landscape. an important detail however: the roads are very bad in the Ngorongoro and the serengeti, if by case you prefer the back in kit .... think about it. For the rest ...GO

Best trip of our lives!

We cannot show our appreciation enough to Philemon, our driver Bonny, and Aardvark Expeditions for our amazing time in Tanzania. The sights that we saw in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater are something that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives. The itinerary set forth by Aardvark expeditions was perfect. The communication with Philemon was great and he was able to answer all of questions and address our concerns. We can’t think of a single thing that we could improve with our itinerary. Our first time to Africa was made perfect by Philemon, Bonny and Aardvark Expeditions. We would 100% recommend Aardvark Expeditions if you want to explore the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater.

We specifically chose august for our Serengeti safari because we were hoping to see the great migration and we were lucky enough to experience this once in a lifetime moment! We owe it to Aardvark expedition because we truly feel their knowledge made all the difference


Our Safari was planned and booked before the pandemic. We were not charged extra for our safari. We really enjoyed it. It was very busy. Animals were able to go through the camps so we were protected by the Masai. We saw a variety of animals throughout our stay. The jeeps were very sturdy. The tour guides were very knowledgable on the different animals. Journey there and back was tiring and stressful. Would recommend ardvark as a safari travel agent.
