A Beyond Magical Experience

Exploring the beautiful country of Tanzania with "Tanzania Choice Safaris" was the best experience of my life. It really did exceed my expectations - I still cannot believe how spectacular the trip was. From every lodge we stayed at to camping in the Serengeti to a Hot Air Balloon ride over a hippo pond, I could not have asked for a better experience. For a long time I dreamed of seeing the Big Five and others on a Safari, and I still look back and think, "Did that really happen?" The coordination and support leading up to the trip was outstanding. Brenda went above and beyond to help us with everything, even travel coordination outside the actual safari. Our tour guide was Kakasii, and we spent seven wonderful days exploring Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Mto wa Mbu (Mosquito River) with him. He even took us out dancing on our last night! Kakasii is someone that just brightens every minute of your day, and he knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to spotting game. He would always say, "Pole pole," and he was always right - we even saw a Black Rhino in the Serengeti. I honestly could not dream-up a better trip...I could go on-and-on talking about how wonderful it was. When I return to Tanzania, I will 110% use Tanzania Choice Safaris again. Not only was it a trip of a lifetime - I made friends for a lifetime.

Tanzania Choice Safaris serve fare that satisfies the mind, heart & soul with a global conscience.

From the first e-mail to the last personal farewell and all the laughter, education and family sharing sandwiched in between....Kakasii and Brenda planned a safari experience that had our party of ten filled each day but left us hungering for more. Thank you for loving and caring for all creatures (great & small) in beautiful Tanzania.

Vacation of a lifetime

We were actually first introduce to the Kimaro's through the TV show House Hunters International. I wrote down their names and 6 years later decided to call them up. It is the best decision we ever made. There is so much planning to arrange for a trip of this magnitude, and Brenda did a wonderful job of communicating what we needed to do, as well as devloping our itinerary. She is very organized and very detailed in her communications. We really didn't have any idea what to expect from the safari, but from day one when we met Kakasii at the airport we are felt we were great hands. Kakasii and Ezekiel our guides are such wonderful people, we felt like we were part of their family and always felt safe. The safari itself was incredible, day 1 we were 4 feet from a wild elephant eating in a field and 15 feet from lion cubs and its mother, it just got better from there. Through Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro crater, and the Serengeti, it was all amazing and very different. We were also taken to areas where the crowds were not as bad and both Kakasii and Ezekiel did a great job providing details about annimals, sites and Tanzanian culture. We also had the opportunity to experience Tanzanian culture by spending time at a Masai village and a day at Kakasii's family farm. What a wonderful experience that was, it still resenates in our hearts when we reflect back. Kakasii could also run for mayor, everyone seems to know him no matter where we went. Through this entire safari we were treated like family and felt loved, to the point where it was difficult to say our goodbyes at the end. We highly recommend Tanzanian Choice Safaris as your choice for a safari adventure. Thank you Brenda and Kakasii!

Our trip to the Serengeti was a once in a lifetime experience.

The communication, service, and adventure are just like you imagine for a great time. Accommodations are very comfortable and safe. The guide's knowledge and experience made the safari top notch. This is the best!

It was easily on of the highlights of my life.

Our service was first class from the immediate response to our inquiry, the timely communications leading up to our trip to the actually safari. Our guide was the perfect host. He went out of the way to make us comfortable and seemed to delight in showing us the beauty of his country. He made every effort to meet our specific interests and patiently allowed us to enjoy various animals up close in their natural habitat. The schedule laid out was perfect, the lodge was first class, and we saw every animal we hoped to as well as many more than we could have imagined. As my daughter said, 10 out of 10, we would recommend to a friend! Now that we have been so spoiled, I can't imagine going with anyone else.

Absolutely Amazing Experience!

Our experience in Tanzania was wonderful! We were so kindly welcomed, and I never felt like “just a client” or that it was just a job for Brenda and Kakasii; instead, we were guests like good friends and family. I especially appreciated their kindness and how personal they made the experience for us. The entire trip I felt safe, comfortable, and well taken care of. The safari was a great adventure with friendly and knowledgeable guides. Our hike up Kilimanjaro also included friendly and knowledgeable guides as well as a great team who all kept us healthy and happy as we hiked. I have no complaints as I enjoyed every bit of my experience in Tanzania!

Wonderful, very professional and helpful.

Tanzania Choice Safaris was more than expected. We enjoyed every minute. The communications was exceptional and very professional. We arrived a day early and was greeted with a wonderful restaurant and help finding a place to stay for the night. You went above and beyond and we appreciate it very much. The Safari was perfect, we saw many animals and the accommodations were excellent. Thank you.

I couldn't have done it without Tanzania Choice Safaris!

Everything from the Safari to the mountain climb, Tanzania Choice Safaris was excellent! The guides for the safari knew so much, they really taught us about the parks, the animals, and even the plants/trees. It was amazing! The guides for the climb were unreal too. I honestly don't think I would have made it to the top without Festo, our main guide. He was so encouraging not only for me but to our whole group..."Go Big Red!"

They made my once in a lifetime experience a once in a lifetime experience

On our trip 8 of us had a 4 day safari and 8 day Mt Kilimanjaro climb. Brenda was super helpful at very stage from planning until we boarded the plane home. We were treated as family friends with our trip customized to meet our wishes and needs. Emails and skype calls prior to the trip were half full in making sure we were prepared and also that our expectations were being met. The experience was beyond my expectations. The safari was incredible with knowledgeable drivers, great lunches, water packed for us every day. The hotel accommodations varied and were all wonderful. Brenda was able to get updates from Festo while we were on the mountain and she kept our family and friends updated on our progress. They were thankful for this because when we did not have cell service and no other way to let them know how we were doing.
I can't say enough positives about our experience and how thankful I am for their part in making this a trip I will never forget.

Life time opportunity fulfulled

I have been planning this trip with my brother for about a year. We ended up with a total of 8 people to help share this monumental trip. After much deliberation, we decided to go with Tanzania Choice Safaris. I had one small request to include a safari driver that I had about 9 years ago. They were happy to oblige. The planning and communication were great. We of course had numerous questions along the way. They were all answered in a timely manner and professionally. Upon arrival, we were greeted which is always a nice thing in a foreign country. If we had extra time, plans were easily adjusted to us. Even on the mountain when we took longer to arrive at the summit than expected, our plans were quickly and easily changed to accommodate us getting to the top. T)he safari driver that I requested, Yusuph (I will admit I am prejudge towards him) went over and above to make sure the safari was suburb! Kati Kati, the tented camp in Serengeti was an extra pleasant surprise being in the middle of a National Park. The shower was the best I had the entire trip. To think we were out there among all of the animals. The food was fabulous! Rhino lodge was a surprise with zebras grazing outside our cabin door in the evening and an elephant that came into the lodge area to get a snack. I could go on and on about how great this experience was. You have to see to believe! Thanks Brenda and Kawkasii, I could not have asked for anything better!
