Amazing Camping Experience!
5/5

AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things about Meru. We had such a wonderful experience from start to finish. 6 day budget camping safari.
Booking Process: After reaching out to Meru via email, the owner Geofrey Nasari finalized all trip details on Whatsapp. To be honest, the booking process and the communications with Geofrey seemed too easy and I thought it might be too good to be true. We did have to send a bank wire transfer of 15% to reserve our spot. I was worried sending this money because I thought we might get ripped off. Not at all – this company is legit and the reviews as accurate. We paid for the remainder of the trip when we arrived in Arusha. We paid a portion via credit card and a portion via cash.
Pick Up/Drop Off: When we walked out of the Arusha airport, we were picked up a driver named Neuro (sp?). He was also our driver back to the airport after the safari and was very knowledgeable about the area and things to do. He also gave us some great tips and places to check out for our next leg of the trip to Zanzibar.
Safari: Our guide, named Moody (sp?) was great! He was funny, friendly, and really wanted to make sure we had a great time. Every time we would stop for animals, he always made sure that we had enough time to view the animals and would confirm with everyone that we were ready to move on to the next spot. Our cook named, Mathayo (sp?) was equally amazing! I have no idea how he was able to prepare such tasty meals while we were camping. He is a very skilled chef. Some of our best meals during the entire trip were prepared by him. Moody and Mathayo were a great team together and made sure that everything was taken care of, and we were able to enjoy ourselves. While we were at some of the park entrances, I could overhear other tourists (booked on other tour companies) complaining about the permits not being ready or having to wait before they could enter the parks. We never ran into that situation. Moody and Mathayo ran the safari schedule so smoothly and we never ran into any issues like that. We did get 2 flat tires (once you have been on the dirt roads you will understand how easy it is to get flat tires there!) They were so quick and efficient at changing the tire, it was no more than an unplanned bathroom break. So grateful that we had Moody and Mathayo for our trip! Can’t say enough good things about them.
Overall: highly recommend Meru! Camping was an amazing experience and Meru goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy yourself. I can’t imagine a better safari for the same price. They know what they are doing.

Perfect job
5/5

The best of all. The company made us a perfect experience. The driver and the cook were perfect also. We saw so many beautiful things, that we did not hope. Had lions, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, elephants, zebra, gnu, jackal, hyena, and so on. The food was perfect, the tent was clear and big, the driver had big experience in finding animals and had the answer for all of our questions. The washroom was perfect clear at all locations (in camps and on the road also).

Amazing experience!
5/5

Short version: I cannot recommend Meru Slopes enough! I went on the 5 day budget safari. The safari itself was fantastic and the food was delicious and plentiful. Jacob (guide) is amazing!

Long version: I found Meru Slopes online while planning my trip to Tanzania. I found Geofrey (owner?) to be responsive and helpfully answered my endless questions. He arranged pickup from the airport and was at the hotel to greet me upon arrival. The hotel is centrally located in Arusha with immaculately clean rooms, good free breakfast and helpful staff. Day 1 of the safari, Geofrey was there again to personally introduce me to the safari guide, Jacob, and cook, Richard.

Throughout the five days, Jacob was kind, charismatic, and incredibly knowledgeable about animals, plants, and local cultures. His eagle eyes spotted everything while still managing to masterfully navigate African roads. Richard consistently delivered delicious meals that were varied and massive! I frequently felt bad for the other groups we saw eating dry sandwiches from their packed lunch boxes. Not one member of our group had a single complaint for the duration of the safari. After the safari, geofrey provide additional assistance and transportation to the bus station. Book your safari with Meru Slopes!

Best safari Ever!
5/5

We have just returned from a trip of a lifetime with Meru slope tours . Our guide and driver "Mshana" lived up to his name and use this experience and skills to get us up close and personal with 64 lions, 2 Leopards, 1 Cheetah and countless Elephants, Baboons, Zebras, Giraffes, Jackals, Hyenas, Warthogs and game. We upgraded our accommodations in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater which was a wise move as we have several night of luxury in the wild with specular views. One of our party had stomach issues and Geofrey and Mshana leapt into acton providing medicine and world class care. Overall if you are going to take this one in a life time adventure make sure you do it in style with Meru slope tours and safaris and request Mshana as your guide!

Epic Safari!
5/5

So we decided very last minute to take a big trip to see out 2021 once and for all and after reading a few reviews I picked three Safari companies to reach out to.

Geofrey at Meru slope tours Safaris was not only the most responsive but also the most proactive in tailoring a program to meet our needs and timetable. Within three days (including a 10 hour time zone difference) we had the whole thing planned and booked. Payment is easy with a few ways to pay and so we packed our bags and headed off.

When we arrived Geofrey met us at the airport and took us to our hotel for the first night. There he explained how the next week would look and, that if it was ok with us, he would like to change around the order of the days so as to have the best chances of seeing the Migration. This was based on information he had just got from his guides in the field. I loved this approach and of course we agreed.

The next morning we were met at the hotel by our guide and travel companion for the next week. Douglas packed us up and we chatted about what we were doing for the day and we headed off.

Now to describe Douglas as a great Guide would be like describing Albert Einstein as a decent math teacher. He is amazing, truly phenomenal!!!!!

Douglas is friendly, funny, smart, incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of this part of the world and all the creatures who call it home. But the best thing is he has eyes that can spot a Leopard hidden high up in a tree from 200m all while driving by at 50kph. Unbelievable!!! Oh and did I mention he speaks 11 languages?

Our experience with Douglas and Meru slope tours Safaris will stay with us for a lifetime, it really couldn’t have been better and way exceeded my expectations.

We saw and experienced more than we could ever have hoped for and although I know a large amount of luck is involved when looking for animals in the wild, having a guide like Douglas supported by a company like Meru slope tours Safaris really does make a difference.

If you want to know you have put your trust in the right company for your tailor Safari, then can I just say this;

Go Meru slope tours Safaris!
