Experience of a Lifetime: 7-Day/6-Night Safari with Shemeji
5/5

When we decided to visit the beautiful country of Tanzania and go on our very first safari, we had no idea which tour operator to go with. After reading countless reviews online and receiving several quotes from a number of companies we ultimately chose to book with Shemeji. We did not regret that choice for one second! The owner, Emma, is a wonderful woman - she guided us through the entire booking process, making sure that we were able to customize the safari exactly the way we wanted and that all our needs are met. She made suggestions based on our desires, addressed our concerns, answered all our questions and always replied to our messages promptly while remaining professional yet sympathetic. The transfer of the money was incredibly easy since Shemeji (in addition to the bank account in Tanzania) has a Dutch bank account so we were able to pay in Euros and did not need to pay any transaction fees.

On August 6th, we finally began our adventure. A 7-Day/6-Night (tented) lodge Safari with the following route: Tarangire National Park -> Lake Manyara -> Serengeti Central -> Serengeti North -> Serengeti Central -> Ngorongoro Crater. This itinerary was absolutely perfect for us. But the trip still wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without such an amazing safari guide!

Our driver-guide, Freddy, picked us up at 8am in our hotel in Arusha with a smile on his face and the car ready to go. My girlfriend and I both agree, that Freddy was the main reason this safari was so wonderful. He is such a reliable, funny and just overall great guy – our brother in Tanzania – and also a very safe driver. With 10-years of safari experience he was always quick to spot all the animals, even when they were far away, and could tell us exactly which bird was flying overhead, even if they all looked the same to us. From the first day of the safari to the last, he always made sure we are comfortable, safe, and enjoying our time. He asked which animals we want to see most and made sure we did exactly that – and more! He knew so much about each and every animal and always had an answer for all of our questions. It is obvious that he is very passionate about his work. He went above and beyond: positioning the car differently so I could get a better picture of the animals, getting my girlfriend some Cola when she was feeling unwell before entering Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and letting us decide at what time to start and end each day of game drives. We miss him already!

Some of the (many!!!) highlights of our trip include being completely alone with 13 giraffes at the shore of Lake Manyara, having a leopard walk right next to our car and get ready to hunt a gazelle to feed its cub, seeing Lions mate, countless baby animals and of course, seeing the Great Wildebeest Migration near the Kenyan border and witnessing the spectacle of the Mara River Crossings! On our last day we saw the animal I wanted to see the most – the black rhino! That was the perfect conclusion to a perfect week!

The accommodation was fantastic also with one bed more comfortable than the next and very friendly staff everywhere. We booked a tented lodge safari and were pleasantly surprised to find that all the accommodation was of the highest standard. We stayed two days at the African Glamping with its swimming pool and giant tents and two days at a Serengeti Central Camp where we heard hippos and buffalos at night and one night at a Northern Camp. Rhino Lodge was our accommodation on the Ngorongoro Crater rim. At the rhino lodge, before we went on safari, we had a herd of 20 buffalo in the backyard in the morning!
Honestly I could write so much more but I think you should just see for yourself: Shemeji will make your safari an unforgettable experience!

Guide and Cook left no stone unturned to make our Safari experience wonderful and memorable.
5/5

Entire tour couldn’t have been supreme without the seamless efforts of Sele and Daniel.



Trip started with Sele receiving us at the JRO airport with a broad smile. Must say that Sele is disciplined and a very calm person. During safari, he made every effort to ensure that game drive is flawless. We could see all the residing wild big cats along with other animals but were unlucky with Rhino. His attentiveness helped us to see the rare sights and breath-taking views of safari.



We were apprehensive about the veg food but Daniel was so prepared that he lifted us to the delighted zone. He was on the toes to make us feel at home with delicious food preparation , soups and salads. Small small things like he serving variety of fruits and making it palatable with fruit art made us really happy. Its about not compromising on the standards even in middle of jungle.



Quality of tents and all amenities provided during the trip were incomparable. What I can say is that any future Safari trip without any second thought has to be with Shemeji . Sele and Daniel accompanying us would be like cherry on the cake

Life changing experiance!

Amazing time with Shemeji
5/5

We had an amazing time on our 6 day camping safari. Our chef Rasheed prepared delicious food and even accommodated my spouse’s lactose intolerance. Our guide Michael truly made our trip unforgettable. His eye for seeing animals and making sure we had the best experience possible were what ultimately made the trip for us. Emma at Shemeji responded to emails very quickly and was so helpful answering my many questions. Our safari experience has been our favourite trip to date and I would absolutely recommend Shemeji to anyone who is looking for the trip of a lifetime.

Amazing, breathtaking, beautiful, fun!
