Professionals! The sole reason why I was able to get to the top of Kilimanjaro.
I went on a 7-day Machame Route Kilimanjaro hiking trip with 7 Wonders Safaris and they were all professionals from beginning to end. The porters and our guide were friendly and they would often analyze the situation and my condition every day and see what they can do to help me succeed in getting to the top of Kilimanjaro.
The guide, Issa knows a lot about the mountains and he always help instructed me on what was to come everyday making the hike smooth and problem-free.
I was able to summit the Uhuru Peak, all because of them so kudos.
I wrote to about 15 operators, and it took little time to choose 7 Woders, very little. First of all, the treatment received from the first mail by Evelyn. Evelyn is the manager of the company, she could write about 20 emails, she answered all of them in minutes, she always attentive to what she might need, to any question. You always fear for your money, and she told me at all times that it was not necessary for me to pay anything, to pay it when it arrived, that confidence that someone gives you who solves all your doubts and who dedicates your time to you, without rushing to a payment. He also understood perfectly that in times of Covid there can be many complications to get there.
Not only that, but when we landed in Tanzania, there she was, spending her time welcoming us and asking us how was the flight, and if we needed anything. They are very elegant details that make you enjoy your vacation, and make you forget the customer-company relationship, you are dealing with people who just arrive after 15 hours by plane, they ask you how you are.
When we finished the safari, she was there too to ask us how everything had gone and if we needed anything else. She traveled from her offices to the hotel, just to get our feed back. Only with this deal would she do it again with them.
They provide you with a hotel for the day before and after the safari, but the hotel ..... is spectacular !! Clean no, very clean, the treatment of the employees super cordial, good breakfast, in a quiet area, with a good restaurant and super cheap.
They also provide transfer to and from the airport, included in the price. The boy in the super nice taxi, the immaculate taxi.
Now the safari:
We were lucky to do it with the best possible driver: Linux. Always helpful, if you had to stop to get money or buy phone cards ... there he was, with a smile ready to help you. He knew all the corners where each animal could be, and he not only explained to you about them, but also about the trees, custom, everything. And very importantly, he never bothered any animal with the jeep, he never got closer than the respect for the animal allowed, unlike other drivers we saw. If you needed something, you didn't have to ask for it, he had already gone ahead and he was giving you the binoculars, or he was coming with some beers. No matter how much you asked him to stop, go somewhere, this or that, he NEVER stopped smiling at us. Always worried about what to do to make us even better. And ... her sense of humor about him! Not only did we meet incredible landscapes and wonderful animals, but this person left more of a mark on us almost than Serengetti himself.
In the safari you have real food, there we saw many companies at noon that distributed picnic boxes, in our case, it was always freshly cooked food, warm, the cook always arrived (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with the pans with freshly cooked food. The food is very good, breakfast with omelette, pancakes, toast, fruit, coffee, tea, and many more things. Lunch and dinner ... very tasty, but there was so much that it was difficult to finish it.
The perfect vehicle, comfortable, you could carry all the suitcases, with phone chargers, you always had a lot of water bottles, or some popcorn to hang out.
In general, one reads many reviews, I would not hesitate to criticize them to avoid a bad experience for others if they had, but honestly, out of 100 times I would repeat 110 with them: it is a super professional company, well organized, with human values hard to see today.

Best safari experience with Seven Wonders and hoza as our guide!
My husband and I booked the mount Meru hike and 5 days safari trip with Seven Wonders- both experiences were amazing! We will focus on this review on the Safari part.
We took around 6 price offers from local companies and Seven Wonders gave us the best and fair offer, price and quality-wise.
From the moment we landed at Kilimanjaro airport Evelyn and her team took the best care of us, supported our every need, change, accommodation, question, and request. Our tour guide was Hoza and he was a real expert- I'll start from the end: we saw the great migration crossing of the Mara river! He knew where all the interesting things are, drove fast but safe, highly professional and knowledgeable guide, share with us stories and information about the wildlife, culture, and the country. Due to his experience, we had the best decision and chose an alternative route; We initially planned one day in lake Manyara, one in Serengeti, and one in Ngorongoro, and one day in Tarangire. in the first day we were offered an alternative of two days in Serengeti and one in Ngorongoro, and one day in Tarangire, since lake Manyara is currently flooded (we also saw this on our way to the Ngorongoro). I would definitely recommend two days in Serengeti- it is the most beautiful park, very close to Masai Mara and has a lot of wildlife. It was also the only reason why we had enough time to see the great migration crossing. We are very thankful that we were offered this alternative.
We chose the camping option and the facilities were OK.
The Seronera camp in Serengeti was not the best. There was no hot water and the bathrooms were dirty- it was manageable but something to take into consideration.
The Simba campsite of Ngorongoro was nice, hot water and pretty clean.
We were a group of 4 people, a guide and a cook- the food was great!
Wonderful experience highly recommended!
I planned the Safari in 2019 to celebrate my girlfriend's 30th birthday.
After reviewing and contacting several companies by email, we've decided to do the Safari with Seven Wonders Safaris.
The experience overall was wonderful, and I would like to list all the points for which I highly recommend such company if you are lost in the decision of which company (they are so many!) to choose for this unique experience:
1) Very smooth, fast and precise communication remotely with Evelyin (Tour Consultant of Seven Wonders). She has been answering all of our questions and helped to organize exactly the kind of trip we wanted (we had a 4-days Safari visiting Lake Manyara, Serengeti and NgoroNgoro). She has been very patient and provided information about the trip, the car, the services included and organized sharply all the transfers we needed from the airport (we landed in Arusha and left from Kilimanjaro airport).
2) Highly flexible and understanding behavior. When Covid came we had to postpone our trip of more than 1year and half and they have been very helpful and willing to keep the deposit we gave without applying any penalty.
3) Salim (our guide) was absolutely a game changer in our experience (and we strongly recommend him also for your future trip). 26 years of experience that you can feel when you drive around immense parks looking for animal in the wildlife. He has been extremely professional and informative but also pleasant and we had a lot of fun together.
4) Everything in the organization was perfect and respected as agreed. Transfers were punctual and the game drives done to the maximum extent. Lunch in the park was prepared by a cook that came in the car with us, and also such meals were prepared very well, delicious!
5) For our trip we decided to sleep in 'lodges' and not in 'tents'. Although lodges are a bit more expensive than tents we are very happy we chose such option as the places where we spent the nights were really nice, clean, and comfortable with very good dinner and breakfast. I also believe that if you are up to a bit more of adventure you will enjoy the tent as well, but lodges will for sure give you the small comforts (nice bed, hot showers, electricity) that can make the difference to make sure you rest well and are full of energy during the days for the game drive.
6) Animals were amazing!
Overall, the experience exceeded by far our expectations. The Safari itself is a magic experience, very emotional, but without such organization and team it would not have been so memorable. Value for money is really satisfactory!
As a side note, we believe we were also quite lucky doing the Safari with a couple of young guys (we were a group of 4 visitors doing the Safari together) that we didn't know before and that were very easy going and nice people. During such Safari you can be in close contact with people you do not know (unless you organize a private Safari trip) and if the chemistry is not good it could affect your overall experience. But this didn't happen at all with our group (thank God!).
Last but not least, Seven Wonders Safaris is a local company and if you chose them you will also be supporting local entrepreneurs!
Well done Seven Wonders. Keep up the good job and looking forward to our next visit!
Professional and highly motivated touring company
Highly recommended for Safari in Tanzania
I booked 5 days safari with 7 wonders and as first Safari for me the experience was beyond my expectation, Evelyn was Supportive during booking phase and George in his briefing before the trip.
During the trip we had Hozza as our guid were he provided us with lots of useful information he was also patient with us and made sure to maximise our experience,he helped us see lots of animals especially big cats. I would say we were really lucky in having him as our guid. We also had kelvin as our cook where the food was delicious with big portions and kept surprising us every day with deferent meals, never thought I will have charcoal pizza in the middle of serengeti.
