Amazing, Excellent and Unforgettable Experience
5/5

We had an amazing trip to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We must have seen a million Wildebeest on our trip. We were lucky to be there when the large herds were crossing the Mara river and we saw groups of many thousands dramatically crossing the river. Our guide knew exactly where the herds would be knew all crossing points of the river. Aside from that we saw a lot of wonderful animals like lions,buffalo,hippos,hyenas and the amazing leopard sleeping in the tree.

We choose their mid range option. The accommodation and food was excellent. We thought the trip was a great value. The price was considerably lower than other operators selling similar trips. Highly recommended and kudos to our guide (Anton).

21day tour 15 days very good last 7days not so much??
3/5

We started off so well in Kenya with SED Adventures contracting Gofan safaris for this portion of our tour. We were promptly met at the airport and transferred to Boma Inn Hotel. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and the adjoining hotel has a pool and several restaurants. Hotel staff advised not to leave the gated property without first removing all our jewlery. Our driver/guide Evans picked us up early for the 8 hr drive to Masai Mara. The roads are very rough- a dirt/muddy track for a good part of the way. We enjoyed our tented stay at Losokwan Camp and several game drives through their private reserve. We spent 2 days here and saw most of the big 5. Evans made sure we saw wildabeest crossing the Mara river- lost one to a crocodile, 2 cheetah chasing a zebra and a lion with a kill. Our next stop was Lake Nakuru to see the flamingos. While the itinerary says full day to view wildlife it takes half day to get there.
Lake Nakuru lodge was ok, not too memorable. Lake Naivasha had more flamingos. Hotel was Sweet Resort- not very nice. While I am sure we were safe the hotel offers temporary housing for those working the area. Our room was equipped with a kitchenette. Restaurant had very little to offer.
Next day was another 8 hour drive to Amboseli National Park- for 2 days of more game drives with Evans. Kibo Safari camp was very nice. Not sure why but we moved to the Amboseli Serena lodge for our second night.
Tsavo west national park- Here we finally saw the elusive leopard. That was the only highlight of this area.
Evans was with us for 7 days, just him, us and the amazing wildlife he spotted for us.
We now had Afran as our driver guide in Mombasa. Here is where things started to go downhill. We did not follow the program as described- there was no cruise on a dhow, no seafood tasting. Alfran dropped us off at the old Mombasa fort with a guide for a tour of the spice market area.
We had 2 nice stay at the Indian Ocean Beach club. Again not following the program nothing was arranged for us for another dhow sail, snorking and Swahili lunch. After a few phone calls by the hotel consierge to Walter, our contact at SED, a driver picked us up and we were taken to a pier and just told to get in line. We no tickets no idea which boat to take. After some hesitation we boarded a large boat and were take snorkling and to a restaurant for a Swahili smoked fish lunch.
Alfran got us to Tanzania border crossing where we were turned over to another driver guide. Calling Pepon Beach Resort a resort is a bit of a stretch. We were stranded here for 3 days!! Continuous rain made the roads impassable. The "resort" does have a pool and a beach. Dirt and in our case mud paths get you there and to the "dining room" . This was the only place for WIFI and you had to ask to have it turned on. Leaking roof made a large portion of the area unusable. We had no hot water for showers the entire 3 days, even after asking the staff. We were told it was available from 5pm to 8pm daily. Due to the rain and road conditions we never made it to Saadani National Park.
John was our next driver/ guide and he was a God send. Our stay in Bagamoyo was noneventful. We did not feel safe to leave the hotel premise. The Millennium Sea Breeze is very run down, food was minimal, liquor watered down, loud music till 3am. The reception staff spoke very little English. A late check out was a $25us charge. We were glad to see John the next morning.
After a fairly long drive we arrived in Dar es Salaam. Our hotel looked ok on the website- location was very undesirable. After a horrible previous 4 days experience with hotels and locations we refused to stay 2 nights at the Tanzanite Hotel. Walter refused to try to get a refund or book us else ware and basically we were on our own to find suitable lodging- thankfully John stayed with us and helped get us to the Four Points by Sheraton where we spent (at our own expense) 2 relaxing days and had great food and drinks. The front desk staff arranged a day outing for us.
Sooo.. 15 days very good last 7 days not so much. We were disappointed that Walter with SED was not able or willing to help us at the end of very long trip (at this point we had been on the African continent for 32 days). Be advised to check out hotels and resorts online, trip advisor, websites and etc. I did and still was disappointed and surprised at the condition of some place, others were a pleasant surprise.

Fantastic Tarangire and Ngorongoro safari
5/5

I visited Tarangire and Ngorongoro with SED and would highly recommend it. SED staff was professional, always on time / early, and very knowledgeable and friendly. They accommodated our plans when we wanted to change. Great price.

The Most Amazing Thing I've ever Done
5/5

All I can say is what a treat! My friends and I had an amazing and unforgettable safari! They took care of all the details from our trip, including our airport pickup, hotels before and after the trip, and everything in between. Our guide, Anton, was the most incredible guide. He was unbelievably knowledgeable about the wildlife and vegetation in the parks, and he spotted so many animals I would have missed on my own. He made sure we hit every beautiful viewing spot and got us right up close with so many animals! Additionally, he was a wealth of knowledge on Tanzania and gave us a bit of background about different cultures and villages in Tanzania. The jeep was spacious and comfortable with great viewing. Everything met and exceed my expectations. I'm already planning my next trip with SED!

My most amazing trip
5/5

12/1/18 My adult daughter and I just returned from an amazing trip to Tanzania. The best decision we made was to use SED as our tour company. Over the months of planning I had many conversations with Elifasi their tour manager. He was always very responsive and open to my suggestions. Together we planned a great trip. It was a perfect combination of exciting game drives in 4 different parks and visits to several local villages of members of different tribes. Meeting and people and learning about their culture was a true highlight. It was a private tour just my daughter, myself and our guide, driver companion Anton. He made the trip alot of fun, was full of information and had the eyes of a hawk (the leopard in a bush 30 yards away!) Just having the 3 of us in the jeep made it easy to dash from front to back and side to side the get the best views. All the lodges were comfortable, with warm and welcoming staff and excellent food. So all I can say is Go To Tanzania and use SED. Richard
