Amazing experience. Highly recommend!!!
5/5

Going on a Safari has always beem my dream and doing it with this team was the best experience!!! I highly recommend the Lion King Adventures and Joseph.

Hubby and I chose the 5 day safari tour and it was just perfect! I fell in love with Serengeti. The experience of sleeping in a lodge inside Serengeti for the night was amazing as you can enjoy the day much more.

Joseph, our guide throughout the trip, was the very best! He answered all our questions and taught us a lot about the animals, the parks, the culture and the language. He is also an amazing photographer. We became his favourite mzungus for sure

Top Notch Adventure. Highly Recommend.
5/5

Lion King is the King of Safari's. They were so easy to work with. From setting up the safari to the tour itself was so easy. When setting up the safari, Godwin and Pendo were very timely in their responses and ensured that all my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I went on the mid price 9 day Migration Crossing. Everything that was advertised was as stated. All accommodations were very satisfactory, with good food, and the vehicle/land cruiser that we travelled in was well taken care of and comfortable. They were also helpful in setting up a balloon safari for one of the mornings.
Our guide David was a great guy and guide. He knew right where to go for the prime viewing locations of all the animals that we seen, and there were plenty to see. He spotted them very quickly and many times from afar. He was very knowledgeable about the animals that we saw, their habitats, and more. David ensured that the vehicle was cleaned every day and well stocked with drinks for those dusty roads, and that we had delicious lunches with plenty to eat each day. I highly recommend Lion King for safari adventures.

Lion King Adventures, provide superior service and guided tours

Our once in a lifetime dream safari trip, came true! Lion King made arranging the safari easy while providing great options and communications of changes. Many safari’s were more expensive, while our safari went beyond our high expectation. Our guide, was an expert at finding animals, ensuring we were present for a Wildebeast migration across the Mara twice in one day and seeing almost 100 lions and other large cats, our personal favorite. Thanks Lion King

Extremely professional and knowledable tour operator who will make sure you have a great safari
5/5

We had an amazing time with Lion King on a 4-days luxury safari tour though Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire national parks seeing lots and lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery staying at some fantastic accommodation.

From the booking everything was extremely professional. We reached out via email and got a well laid out itinerary for the time of our holiday. The team helped us with any follow up questions and adjusted the plan to our needs. All the comms were clear, timely and useful. I would have been impressed if a company operated like this in the UK and I’ll admit I was very surprised for a Tanzanian based company to be so easy to plan with!

Our guide Aroni was one of the highlights of our trip. He shared his good knowledge of the wildlife and nature and ensured we got to see some of the best sights on our safari (some examples - a group of cheetahs, up close with elephants, lions feasting on an unfortunate zebra and much much more). We also had some great chats about Tanzania in general which we really appreciated. Aroni is very responsible - he took into account when we needed to be someone by a certain time (our flight times and arrival) but we also never felt rushed and is a careful driver. With Aroni you always feel like you’re in safe hands. Overall, you’ll have a great time if you get Aroni as your tour guide.

The Lion King organised accommodation was top notch with great hospitality, rooms and facilities. Two of the locations we stayed at inside the Serengeti and you can watch the wildlife from the comfort of your hotel. It was always exciting to pull up to the next place and be bowled over again by the amazing setting and high standard.

Lion king also make things even better with the little details. They provided plenty of drinks, including red and white wine with mine and my wife’s name on them. The lunches we had while out for the day were tasty and each time Aroni would set up with a table cloth, drinks and nice cutlery. We felt pretty spoiled.

Overall, you can’t go wrong with Lion King. They are extremely profession, have some great guides and take extremely seriously taking care of you and making your safari an amazing experience.

Such a unique experience. The better-prepared you are on your knowledge, the better it is.
5/5

Our guide Saleh was excellent. He put in so much work in finding animals, handling dietary restrictions, and planning for the next days. His knowledge of the ecology of the entire surrounding region is very in depth, and he's a expert at spotting and identifying things from a distance. We saw a lot of rare sightings - a rhino in the Serengeti (there weren't supposed to be any, this one was just released there), 4-5 leopards, lions mating. The Mara River crossing was definitely worth it and he was extremely patient. Rose set up the the trip for us and was very accommodating. She even set up an Arusha tour for the first day, and Brighton was the guide for that.

Speaking of Arusha, the Cultural Center is very nice and worth a visit, but there's no need to buy all your souvenirs there. There are much cheaper places elsewhere. Just ask your guide - you'll be driving through towns in between safari parks. Also, the Tanzanite Experience in Arusha is definitely the best combo of trustworthiness and expertise, and price, for buying Tanzanite of the quality that you want.

Just FYI, tipping is expected, but don't tip too much at the beginning in the airport. There's a reason why bag helpers are only at the arrivals and not at the departures. Your money can get drained quickly. Maybe tip them a dollar or two if they help, but you probably don't need help anyway. Also, only tip lodges and hotels at the end of your stay there. Don't tip all the staff. 20 dollars per day is enough for a family. It will be split among the staff. As for the guide, it's customary to tip $15 per person per day, although I hear most guests don't tip that much. The typical number of guests they get is 2, so larger groups may not have to tip as much per person. However, more people = more work since the guide has to handle your food as well. So maybe $14 minimum for a group of 3 and $13 minimum for a group of 4. Don't bring more people than that - the car can get crowded. 5 if you have zero luggage.

Speaking of luggage, DON'T OVERPACK. Wear each pair of clothes for 2 or 3 days before washing. You REALLY do not need to wash everyday here.

Bug repellent is very important. Get the high quality creams from REI. There aren't many mosquitos, but Tsetse flies can swarm you sometimes, no matter how fast you're driving.

Also, remember to bring lots of cash and remember to have new bills, like after 2016.
