Tanzania Choice Safaris is excellent!
5/5

Touring with Tanzania Choice Safaris was a truly amazing experience. From the pickup at Arusha to the national parks tours and accommodation, the Mto Wa Mbu village tour and the drop off at the airport, the service was seamless with excellent communication. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and would gladly recommend this company to anyone who wants to have the best experience in Tanzania.

5/5

The tour from Tanzania Choice Safaris truly surpassed my wildest thoughts and expectations!! From the very beginning with working with Brenda, it was seamles. Even when we arrived and went on amazing safari's in the Serengeti and the Nogorogoro Crater. Everyone enjoyed their tour guides which also was a big plus. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this company for tours in Tanazania. They didn't disappoint one bit. Truly grateful for the entire experience. It will last with me forever!!!!

TCS did a great job planning our safari. We were able to visit all the places we hoped and the lodges were clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. There were a few things TCS could have improved upon: 1) cleaning the vehicle windows mid-way through the safari (our trip was six days, and at one point I, myself cleaned the windows), 2) better communication with one of the lodges - one lodge company gave us a one-bed tent twice when we had originally requested two twins, 3) better communication on the return flights for us (both travellers were confused about the end destinations - one traveller had to re-enter the airport in Zanzibar to schedule her next flight on to Dar, which was not communicated prior to flying - at least knowing there might be some bumps in logistics would have been nice). Despite these few things, we felt that the tour guide did a nice job of meeting us and understanding our priorities. We were a low-key pair and enjoyed the occasional silence - our tour guide did not talk constantly. He offered us the opportunity to eat lunch in the vehicle while watching the wildlife (instead of going to the often-crowded lunch spots) and provided the routine afternoon coffee to my dad throughout the trip. I had also heard that tour guides are often caught up in making sure travellers see the "Big Five." Even if our tour guide was concerned with this, he didn't show it. We were just grateful to see Tanzania's beautiful wildlife in general. We both saw animals that we didn't expect to see and enjoyed groups of animals we didn't know would be our favorites.

Exceptional. Kakasi and his team are the best.
5/5

We had the trip of a lifetime, thanks in large part to the knowledge, efforts, and thoughtful attention to detail from Tanzania Choice Safaris. We traveled with a large group, with four guides: Kakasi, Victor, Norton and Leslie. They were all wonderful. Their knowledge of the parks, the wildlife, and the places to stay was very impressive. Every detail of our trip was carefully conceived and smoothly executed. I really can't say enough about how professional and good natured these guys are.

An Amazing 40th Birthday Adventure
5/5

Kakasii and Brenda have developed an amazing safari company! I contacted Brenda about wanting to celebrate my birthday on safari and on somewhat short notice she developed an itinerary that exceeded my expectations and was right on budget. Every detail was handled perfectly from the pickup in Arusha to the lodging to the meals to the safari rides and village tour to the flight to Zanzibar after the safari. They even added some nice touches including a birthday banner in our safari vehicle and a surprise birthday cake and performance by the staff at the lodge during my birthday dinner. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to and an excellent driver. Communication with Brenda before, during and after our trip was quick and easy. I highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris for your next adventure!

Professional
5/5

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional and exceptional experience, I can recommend this company and tour guide/driver Leslie. Due to time constraints, my visit to Ngorongoro Conservation Area was short but memorable. Leslie was on time always and very accommodating of my questions. Communications with this company were first class and the Safari info provided before hand very useful. All in all, fantastic memories!

Outstanding!
5/5

My son and I traveled from Alaska, United States to Tanzania to join Tanzania Choice Safari on a safari to Tarangire National Park. I can not speak highly enough of the amazing experience we had start to finish!

The owners of Tanzania Choice Safari, Kakasii and Brenda, were tremendously accommodating, knowledgable and helpful with every aspect of our safari. They listened to what we wanted out of our safari and tailored a perfect, budget targeted trip that exceeded all of my expectations.

Brenda helped me all along the way from tickets to visas to accommodations and transportation. Every part of my travels felt safe, enjoyable and well thought out. Brenda was always available and answered all of my questions in a thorough, timely manner. She really made a giant effort to ensure everything was just right!

My safari experience was top notch. I was blessed to have Leslie as my safari guide. I can only imagine that all the guides of Tanzania Choice Safari would be just as good. Leslie’s energy and level of knowledge of all things safari blew my mind. He narrated all along the way to Tarangire National Park. He spoke of so many interesting things and answered all of my never ending questions.

I wasn’t sure of what animals I would be blessed to see or how many. I was jumping with joy as we entered the park and a giant elephant stood on our path. From there, it never stopped! I saw hundreds of elephants, giraffes, impalas, hyenas, monkeys, baboons, lions, zebras, cheetahs, numerous birds that Leslie excitedly told us about, his knowledge was incredible! Pumbas, buffalo, jackals, hippos, mongoose, dung beetles, and ostriches throughout our safari. I can’t leave out the beautiful, magnificent Baobab trees! They are breathtaking! You will be in awe as you learn these trees are thousands of years old! All aspects of the safari mesmerized me!

We stayed just outside of the Tarangire Park at a beautiful lodge. Our accommodations were spectacular! We stayed in our own canvas tent. But, do not think of a “tent”. The room was beautiful! It felt like a luxury hotel. Charming, comfortable beds with a private porch, large sitting area, giant bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower. We enjoyed amazing food and service. There were guardsmen present to ensure we were safe at all times, as this lodge has wild life all around it! We swam in the pool that is open to the savannah! I have one suggestion for anyone who is traveling from Earth’s Northern Hemisphere, watch some YouTube and try to familiarize yourself with why the Big Dipper star constellation appears backwards and upside down when you are below the equator. It sparked a lot of conversation and honestly, I am not sure if I really understand it still!

We had wonderful picnic lunches on our safari days. Our guide Leslie catered to our needs and made sure we were doing well the entire time. There was always water and food available. We rode around comfortably in one of Tanzania Choice Safaris Toyota Land Cruisers where the top of the vehicle pops up. Leslie zoomed us to a few places when he got word from other safari drivers of highly sought animals in the area. It was SO much fun!!!! Imagine being on a Disney ride for a whole day at a time. I smiled, laughed and enjoyed every minute!

I really can not speak highly enough of the time I spent in Tanzania with Choice Safari! I can’t verbally describe this amazing experience in words! I was in awe and knew, as I was experiencing this astonishing moment, that it was a once in a lifetime experience that I would never forget and would hold deep in my memories as one of the best experiences of my entire life!

Kakasii and Brenda are incredible people who work hard to ensure every need is met for their customers. They go above and beyond to have everything you need accommodated for you! I will return one day with my husband and can not wait give Brenda and Kakasiii big hugs and look forward spending more time in their beautiful, friendly, spectacular country!

Asante Sana Tanzania Choice Safari!

An outstanding experience that went beyond any and all expectations!
5/5

My boyfriend and I booked a 3 day, 2 night safari to Tarangire National Park with Tanzania Choice Safaris and it was amazing beyond words!! From the very beginning, Brenda was informative & responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had about booking our safari.

Our guide, Joseph, was super experienced & knowledgeable about the animals, birds, plants, culture, and any other questions we had. He was amazing at using his own knowledge of the park, as well as information from other guides he was friends with, to show us all of the amazing wildlife in Tanzania (leopards, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras galore, etc.) Joseph was also very kind and welcoming from the second he picked us up at the airport until he dropped us off.

We stayed in the Simba Lodge, just outside the southern gate of the National Park, and the staff was very attentive & the lodging itself was very comfortable & spacious. All of the food was great & they had no issue making box breakfast/lunch that we would take with us on safari!

Could not recommend this experience more!! Thank you to everyone at Tanzania Choice for making this possible & helping us check off a massive bucket list item!!

An amazing company that will provide an experience that will leave no one disappointed.
5/5

My mom and I booked an amazing Tarangire National Park safari through Tanzania Choice Safaris. It was an incredible experience that blew all of our expectations out of the water!

Our safari guide made sure that we were safe and comfortable while viewing some of Tanzania’s most amazing wildlife. We saw everything from lions and elephants - to zebras and giraffes. I will never forget how enjoyable the whole experience was and credit it to the team at Tanzania Choice Safaris. They helped us select an itinerary that included (but was not limited to) a lodge stay, game drive, and delicious picnic lunches. There were many options to choose from and I would happily book through them again.

I left Tanzania impressed by the hospitality and kindness of everyone we met, both within the Tanzania Choice Safaris team and without. It truly is a beautiful country and I give my highest regards to the amazing company which helped my mom and I experience it.

Tanzania Choice Safaris, thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!
