Expert guides, great accommodations, and an experience of a lifetime!
5/5

My wife and I decided to take a safari for our honeymoon and chose Mazingira as our guide/safari service. From the moment we landed in Tanzania and were picked up by Solomon from Mazingira, we were well taken care of and had a great time. We did the 7-day safari going to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater.

From day one Solomon had us right in the mix of things and even got us within 10 ft of a cheetah chase and kill of a red stag which he said that in all his years of experience was the closest he's ever been to something like this, so it goes without saying that we got a once in a lifetime view of this intense part of nature. We saw all of the "big 5" animals by time we were done and even came up on a bonus Caracal cat which apparently is extremely rare! We saw so many animals that it is hard to even remember them all!

We took lots of pictures ourselves but Solomon seems to be a professional photography as well because he shared his pictures with us and they are absolutely breathtaking! He is also incredibly knowledgeable about every part of the parks that we visited from knowing facts about the animals, plants, birds, bugs, fish, and even the geological history of the areas. So suffice to say that we learned a lot too!

The daily picnic lunches provided on the trip were also spectacular and it was almost surreal to be sitting in the middle of these vast parts of nature and eating all of this delicious local food. When we tried some banana wine at a village tour and told Solomon that we really enjoyed it, he went out that night after dropping us off at the hotel and picked up a couple bottles for us to enjoy on the rest of our trip which shows how dedicated he is to us having an excellent and unforgettable trip!

All the hotels we stayed at were beautiful and very accommodating to us. Solomon made sure that we were aligned for the next day before he dropped us off and also talked to the hotel to make sure they would open up breakfast early just for us so that we could get out in the parks on time.

We added a hot air balloon ride in the Serengeti that unfortunately the weather prevented us from actually taking off but instead of having me and my wife follow up with the balloon company, Mazingira gave us a refund directly and worked with the balloon company themselves so that we could travel back home and be worry-free.

Again, we had a once in a lifetime experience and if given the chance would absolutely book again with Mazingira! We always felt safe, taken care of, and valued customers. Thank you to Solomon, Jake, and team at Mazingira for giving us the a trip we'll never forget!!!

Excellent, he was very knowledgeable and personable.
5/5

This trip was made even better because we had such amazing guides. They took us to get the front row seat to watch lions eat and defend their kill from hyenas. The guides were so very friendly and it felt more like a best friend was driving you around rather than a guide.

Takes care of their clients
5/5

From the first step out of the airport to the last one going back in these guys took care of everything we needed for an amazing trip. Before arriving they work with you to plan the perfect trip then do all the work for you so that you can have a stress free vacation. They're very professional and it's clear how important you are and that you enjoy your trip. They listen to even the smallest complaints and do everything they can for you. It is well worth the money to have a reliable, fluent, and knowledgeable guide who wants to make your trip the best it can be.

Wonderful Experience! Couldn't be happier!
5/5

Everything about the booking process and the safari itself was great! They worked with us as our plans changed due to the pandemic and rescheduling a couple of times. The quality of the guide, vehicle, and accommodations were top notch. Solomon, our guide, was the best part of the whole experience - extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and a great guy. There was nothing I would change about the trip!

Perfect Safari in these days of 2020
5/5

What a wonderful safari experience in these days of 2020

At the end of 2019, we had booked a 7 day safari in Tanzania with Mazingira Eco – a locally owned safari company.
Our luck was that it was in Tanzania and not in another country,
because since May the Tanzanian borders are opens and they take all measures to make sure everyone is Welcome!
Nevertheless we had often to postpone our flights
because the airline (Ethiopian) which flies 787 planes with 60 passengers from Milan via Addis Ababa to Kilimanjaro
had to adjust its schedule. Mazingira was very flexible with all the date changes,
thanks Johari my contact person who helped us in planning the safari.
She is fast, flexible, patient and knowledgeable.
Despite of the time differences the communication was easy through WhatsApp.
Finally the safari took place as planned with our guide Solomon.
Solomon is a very good person, knowledgeable and charming.
He even spotted Cheetahs and Leopards at an incredible distance from the naked eye...
If travelling again with Mazingira we will ask for Solomon (Our best Guide).
At the end we arrived home SAFE.
Everything was perfect and many thanks to all the people involved from the Mazingira family.
For all who want to see animals and not tourists it is the ideal time to go.
