Wonderful Experience
5/5

It was a perfect 3-days safari tour with friends organized by Mazingira, which became one of the most amazing experience in our life.
Our guide Elisante picked us up at the hotel the next morning. We were so glad to have Eli as our guide. He is a true professional, knowledgeable, answering all our questions and very patient. Eli took care of everything we felt really comfortable and safe with him. The game drives were amazing with many many animals :)
Our Mazingira vehicle was a “pop-up roof” Toyota Land Cruiser, which was in a very good condition, well maintained, with built-in refrigerator.
Our accommodation and the food was perfect, everything according to our expectations.
Mazingira is an amazing company to book with and I highly recommend it!! 10/10

Professional, friendly, reliable!!!
5/5

It was a perfect 3-days safari tour with friends organized by Mazingira which became one of the most amazing experience in our life. Our contact person was Johari, who helped us in planning the safari.
She is very kind, flexible, patient and knowledgeable. When we arrived in Arusha the day before the tour, she was already waiting for us at the hotel to meet personally and discuss the details of the tour.

A perfectly run safari, fun and low-stress
5/5

Mazingira brought us on one of the most amazing experiences of our lives! Before even arriving in Tanzania, Johari was in constant communication, adjusting our schedule to fit our requests and clearly communicating what was needed as far as payment.

Johari and our guide David picked us up at the Kilimanjaro Airport and handled everything for us from then onwards. The game drives were amazing, with David pointing out animals we may have missed and explaining various facts about them. One thing I especially appreciated - while some other groups would take their pictures and leave, David knew when it was worth it to park and patiently watch the animals. This led to us seeing some very cool behaviors.

The lodges and tented camps we stayed at were excellent. Mazingira had coordinated everything perfectly, and even communicated that we were on our honeymoon. We had some lovely surprises from the lodges (champaign, cakes, flowers) as a result. It was really a great touch.

The tour was worth every penny and more! Thank you!

Summarizing my review below: the best safari company and the coolest thing we’ve ever done.

BOOKING
We found Mazingira using the Safari Booking website. Jacob quickly responded with a suggested itinerary. We worked together to come up with an itinerary that was within our budget and lodges that were at our comfort level.

PAYMENT
Paying for the safari was the only area that I felt uncomfortable with - sending payment via an overseas bank to a foreign company felt risky. However, everything went through and in the end I didn’t have anything to worry about.

SAFARI
A) Guide - Our guide was Leonard (Leo) and we couldn’t recommend him enough. He was always early, had everything ready for us every day and made us feel extremely welcome to his country. He knew every animal and always gave us fun facts about them. He was a safe driver as well and always made us feel safe. One of my favorite parts of our trip was Leo start off the day with a quick summary of what we were about to do and see and where we were headed. He felt like family by the end of the trip. Ask for Leo!

B) Animals - we were lucky to see the big 5, thanks in part of Leo’s experience. If he hadn’t listened to the radio and didn’t have a quick reaction, we would’ve missed the rhino on our last day. Leo knew how to navigate the car close enough to the animals so we could see them clearly and get some great photos.

C) Lodging - each lodge we stayed at offered something unique. The staff at all places we stayed were welcoming and the food, for the most part, was really good. We were on our honeymoon and Jacob had called ahead to the lodges and most had done something special for us (decorated the room, special dessert, welcome gift, etc). Splurge on the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge if you can - the location can’t be beat.

Hands down the best experience of our lives. We highly recommend and if anyone is hesitant, feel free to reach out. I can’t say enough good things about this company, our guide Leo, Jacob or Tanzania.
