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.

Wow...Wow...WOW! Talk about an EXPIRIENCE of a LIFETIME!!!
5/5

Three individuals made my first trip to Africa an experience of a lifetime: Jacob, Mazingira owner, and Solomon and Simon, our guides. Initially I wanted to book with an American owned tour company due to time differences and ability to clearly correspond with English speaking personnel. However, many of those I reached out to could not meet the constraints of my budget or they just simply weren't timely enough in their responses. After I sent a quote request to Mazingira, it was clear to me, that I had been limiting myself by doing the aforementioned. Despite obvious time differences, Jacob's communication with me was absolutely seamless and responsive! He and his guides spoke perfect English so correspondence was super easy over the phone and through messages on WHATSAPP. He utilized his resources and was able to make my dollar stretch (to the most incredibly accommodations might I add) and was extremely patient with my questions; he often stayed overnight in his office to ensure he addressed any concerns I may have had on our working itinerary. Jacob also ensured that we didn't get the typical Serengeti adventure. Everything we took part of was truly the AUTHENTIC version of Tanzania, from our personalized dining experiences and cultural visits, to our inexpensive shopping trips for souvenirs. Although I had done some research, I incorporated a few of Jacob's recommendations for particular locations, and I was extremely happy I did because they were the highlight of my trip! Mazingira also spoiled us with their tour guides. Often we ride by other companies outfitted with one tour guide, but we had TWO, Simon and Solomon; one to look out for game while the other traversed the tough terrain and also looked out for wildlife. This really enhanced our game drive experience because it can be a task alone to maneuver through areas with thick brush and look for wildlife simultaneously. However, for typical safari tours, I think two may be the exception, rather than the rule. Regardless, Solomon and Simon were so skilled, that I know they could do the guide individually, drive with their feet, and still spot wildlife! I was so impressed with the knowledge of animals and culture of Tanzania that they possessed. Both natives of Tanzania, were a walking/ talking National Geographic pair, that really made you feel like you were in the middle of some exciting Serengeti documentary film. They understand the patterns of the animals and spotted them rather easily. Often we were the first to spot wildlife and radio to their other guides to come join us at our location. Simon, our mighty driver can traverse through the toughest terrain there is, and in the wet season, that can keep you from getting stuck countless times throughout your journey. Mazingira is not just a safari guide company, but they are a FAMILY company, meaning they welcome their customers into the fold like they are brothers (caca) and sisters (dada). They have some of the BEST guides you will find in Tanzania (ask for Solomon or Simon if you can!). Once it was time to go, I found myself truly missing the Savana and missing our new Mazingira family. There are a ton of safari guides out there, but if you want a truly personalized, authentic ADVENTURE, look no further; MAZINGIRA is it!!!

Exciting adventures in the Masai Mara!
5/5

Mazingira Safaris provided us with such a positive experience in Nairobi and the Masai Mara. They are based in Tanzania but went out of their way to provide us services in Kenya. Jacob’s fast email responses made the arrangements easy and Peter was there to meet us at our hotel. He introduced us to our driver and guide, Ken, who treated us wonderfully. Ken went out of his way to make our trip enjoyable. As South Africans we had been on many game drives, Ken consistently check in with what we wanted to see and do. We really enjoyed his company. I would recommend Mizangira Safaris for any East African travels.

The best of the best in Tanzania adventures.
5/5

The design of Mazingira adventures are geared towards those of us wanting to see Tanzania in all of its glory, particularly wildlife. The guides are professional, knowledgeable, fun, excellent drivers and also provide interesting insights that add even more to the experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend.
