Highly recommended

Communication with Nelson was fantastic, felt at ease through the whole process.
Great driver, cook, accommodation, and group!
No request was too difficult; including retrieving a pair of binoculars I'd accidentally left in the Safari truck!
Thank you to the team for an amazing Tanzania experience!!

Great safari experience

The guide, the cook, the car, the camping, the communication with Nelson was all great and we had an amazing time in this 3 days. We saw all the animals from very near and even had a leopard night experience in the camp when he was strolling around. Thanks for everything!

Flexible, kind, communicative..truly made the experience wonderful

Communicating with Nelson was very great, he was willing to accomadate an alteration in our itenerary to see the Ndutu area even though 5 other operators refused which shows his flexibility. The food was amazing Peter the chef was incredible. The driver Stewart was amazing at finding animals and drove very quickly when needed and slowly when we were game viewing. The experience was overall phenomenal and I would go again

Great value for money

Great Safari experience: arrange with Nelson was very fast. We did a 4 day Safari: best for ourselves was Serengeti & Ngorongoro. In November we saw plenty animals all around, our driver was not much of a talker but very efficient to spot all the animals, cook was very nice too & good food. Tents can be cold at night so make sure to bring some warm clothe to sleep. We didn’t have any issues, just be a little more patient & flexible with everything as you are in Africa :)

Great experience

We did a three days safari (lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire) for 390€ per person. The communication with Nelson was ok (per Email or WhatsApp), we had to pay 20% in advance in oder to make the booking, without receiving anything official afterward, so we were a little afraid and sceptical.
But everything went great, we got picked up at Arusha airport and brought to Nelson's hotel (two nights, before and after the safari, were included in the price).
Our safari guide was great, the jeep was also ok, everyone (max 7 people) had a window seat. The food was also very good, we slept two nights at Panorama camp near Lake Manyara.
The organization is a little chaotic, but that's Africa.
The experience itself was amazing, we got to see all kind of animals and our guide really took time to show us everything and always asked if he could proceed or wait for photos.
For the price and the experience I would highly recommend Focus in Africa!

Great Safari with a reliable agency !

We had a three days Safari with Focus in Africa with Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Lake Manyara.
The contact with Nelson was very easy from the beginning and our early changes of schedule weren't a problem.

Nelson provided a pickup at Arusha airport to our hotel the night before and the next morning for the Safari.

We had wonderful Safaris and saw a lot of animals, especially in Tarangire and the beauty of the Ngorongoro crater was absolutely stunning ! We saw the Big Five (the rhinos were distant and the leopard sleeping in a tree) and so much animals very close from the car !

We unfortunately had a problem with a car while safaring at Ngorongoro (a double breakdown from 2 non related parts, even the driver said he never experienced that !) and we had to wait for the repairement. The driver (Simba) was great for dealing the issue and keeped us safe.

Nelson was informed of the situation and provided us a compensation for the missed hours and the late return. So we had the opportunity to visit the Materuni waterfalls near the Kilimandjaro and to be dropped at the Airport. By the way, the driver, Joel, is great, he drives smoothly, takes care of his guests, is funny and is very communicative about the planning ! I totally recommand him !

I can say that Nelson is a reliable and reachable person who really takes care of his guests. I was afraid when we had the problem that he wouldn't answer me back, but it was the opposite, we stayed in contact all the time via WhatsApp. And furthermore, this tour was cheaper than many others Safaris we saw for the same quality, so it's the best value for money.

So thanks again Nelson for everything, and if I have the chance to come back for the Serengeti Park, I will totally book from your agency !

Excellent safari

Very good safari, the cook was awesome so if you like good food on your safari take this company. I had much worse food on other safaris. The guide was very experienced and knew a lot about the animals. The people working there are very friendly and provide good service.
