Outstanding private safari
We did a 5 day / 4 night private safari with Gosheni Safaris, starting at Ngorongoro, through Central Serengeti, and with 2 nights in the Ndutu area where the animals were slowly making their way. It was an absolutely surreal experience, easily one of the best my husband and I have had (and we've travelled a fair bit). In large part, this was thanks to our Safari guide, William: his deep knowledge and long experience of the Serengeti, its animals, and surrounding areas; his patience, good humour and flexibility; his fantastic skills at handling the vehicle and the bumpy roads; and a very clear desire to show us the very best this stunning scenery had to offer. We researched many companies before choosing this one (there are 1000+ in Arusha alone!), and would not hesitate wholeheartedly recommending William or Gosheni, especially as a local company that has been diligently built from the ground up by the owner, Peter, and the entire staff thanks to their good service. From the moment you step into Gosheni's base in Arusha -- and even before, via email -- you will feel like you are in extremly capable and safe hands. Overall, a trip of a lifetime and worth every cent. Asante sana, William and Gosheni!
Responsive, attentive and very thoughtful
we booked our honeymoon Safari trip with Gosheni ,they took care of everything to make sure you enjoy your trip and Safari. A truly once in lifetime experience.
You should definitely try to get Gabriel as your guide because he is the best! He has 16+ years of experience and it shows. He is excellent at spotting all the different animals and knowing everything you’d want to know about them. He’s also just a terrific driver as he has no problem navigating the difficult terrain (we saw multiple other tours’ jeeps broken down). But, most importantly, he has a good sense of humor and kept our entire game driving entertaining. He is extremely friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to speak with!
One thing the tour does special compared to others is the lunch. They go above and beyond to create a special fun experience. Everyone else had boxed cold lunches. But Gabriel had the special containers, table cloth, and utensils that allowed him to serve us a multi course meal with glasses of wine to boot.
Thank you Gab and Gosheni for this amazing trip! Asante sana!
Responsive, reliable, great support, great guides, delivered according to plan
We realized our honeymoon in Tanzania and Rwanda with Gosheni and had Erasto was as our guide during the entire trip in Tanzania.
Our experience overall was great - would strongly recommend the Tour Operator and Erasto as a tour guide.
- Gosheni / Cindy were very responsive to support us designing the best itinerary and selecting the hotels, quickly accommodating many different requests
- Gosheni / Cindy / Erasto were very responsive to support us dealing with Kenya Airways, when our bags were lost (arriving in Tanzania) - after two days our bags were found and brought to us (Erasto very early in the morning), without impacting the itinerary
- Erasto was an excellent guide: Punctual, flexible, knowledgeable and friendly. Erasto was always on-time, able to propose / adjust plans according to the situation (e.g., lost in luggage), deep in explanations of the local culture, wildlife, food and others, knowledgeable of the best spots / always in touch with other guides to find the wildlife, and a great photographer (helping us to take picture with our phone using the binocular). Finally, the fact that Erasto is fluent in Spanish was also very helpful for better communication (especially for my wife, who is Colombian)
Overall feel that we received what we hired, without any negative surprises. Would recommend Gosheni and Erasto for anyone travelling to Tanzania.
Fantastic from start to end
Delicious lunch underneath a tree with a leopard in it. Seeing all available big five within two days. Drinking cooled white wine on the top of a mountain while watching the sun set. Learning about both the rich birdlife, breathtaking nature and incredible wildlife of Tarangire. These were just a few of the highlights that Mr. Laban from Gosheni gave me. Will definitely book with them soon again!
A Safari Tour of a Lifetime
We didn’t know exactly what to expect when we booked our 7-day safari with Gosheni, but the experience was beyond our wildest dreams. The landscape was breathtaking, the accommodations luxurious, the animals stunning, and our guide William was enlightening. He made us feel safe and comfortable and gave us incredible insight into the history of Tanzania and its people as well as the animal kingdom. I couldn’t recommend Gosheni enough if you’re looking for both an authentic and exhilarating safari tour.
