Highly professional, friendly, and informative safari driver!

Brenda and Kakasii at Tanzania Choice Safaris are an amazing couple to work with. Brenda responded to all my inquiries and emails promptly and provided a day be day itinerary catered to my personal preferences. Her and Kakasii are local Tanzanian residents and experts on the best areas to tour as well as the local attractions and hotels at each location. I was never left in the dark with what to except and greatly appreciated their recommendations which made my overall experience special. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to travel to Tanzania! I look forward to rebooking with them soon!

An amazing once in a lifetime experience. Truly AMAZING!!!!!!

In booking this adventure our first impression was dealing with Brenda. She was very accommodating and professional. She was in contact with us up until the day we left for the safari. All of our flights and ground transportation went like clockwork. Brenda made us feel like we had been friends forever. We were met by our two guides Kakasii and Noel. We left the airstrip and within 10 minutes we came upon mating lions. From that point on we saw so many animals and both guides provided us with an incredible amount of information on all wildlife and vegetation. After a full day of the safari we went to our camp. There we were met by a group of young men from the Maasai tribe that were so accommodating and helpful. They met our every need. Each night we had dinner with Kakasii and Noel and talked about the day. Kakasii and Noel made us feel so comfortable and they are both professionals in their field. We highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris and if the need arises we would definitely use their service again. THANKS BRENDA, KAKASII AND NOEL FOR EVERYTHING!!!!

Trip of a Lifetime

Everything was outstanding. We have had several friends use them and highly recommended them to us, and they did not disappoint. Kakasii was amazing, it was like he had sixth sense for where the animals would be, and Brenda did an impeccable job setting everything up for us. No regrets on anything, it was a superb trip.

Trip of a lifetime! Wonderful experience! Great people!

Our safari with Tanzania Choice Safaris could not have been better. Our guide, Kakaseii, was experienced, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. There are many places to safari in Africa and many safari companies to choose from; picking the right one makes all the difference. Our Tanzania Choice guide knew exactly where to take us, he knew how to drive the sometimes difficult roads, and he knew how to find the wildlife we hoped to see. Our trip was to the Serengheti and Norangano Crater and we saw literally millions of animals including lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, giraffes, bison, wildebeasts, hayenas, cheetas, and ever a rare rhino, among others. We also saw dozens of varieties of birds that were beautiful. The camps that Tanzania Choice arranged for us were wonderful with great sleeping accommodations and great food. This was the trip of a lifetime, but if we ever choose to safari we would definitely book again with Tanzania Choice. Tanzania Choice was very easy to work with and they went out of their way to accommodate us in every way. A great business to work with. Thank you Kakaseii and Brenda!

Highly experienced, knowledgeable, and professional operation.

Tanzania Choice was highly recommended to us by our colleagues here in Tanzania, and they did not disappoint! Everything was smooth and easy from the get go. The user friendly website made it easy to book exactly what we wanted. Then communications were open and professional negotiating the final itinerary and lodging.

Once on ground in Arusha we were immediately welcomed by our guides, who quickly made us feel as if we were longtime friends. Be the end of the first day we realized we had one of the top guides of Tanzania's safari circuit. Throughout the rest of the safari our guides (we had a primary guide and another in training) consistently displayed their in depth knowledge of the parks, the wildlife, and the terrain. They were enthusiastic the whole time, and we could tell they genuinely love what they do for a living. Our guide was even able to arrange a visit into the Olduvai Gorge during our stop there. It seemed all other safari vehicles were restricted to the visitor center, while we got to go and see the Leakey's dig site.

A big positive for Tanzania Choice is their commitment to safety. The safari vehicle was well maintained. We felt confident in this looking around seeing all the other safari vehicles caked in dirt and mud, and ours being cleaned every morning and at every stop. Our driver/guide was clearly very experienced driving in rough and unforgiving terrain. He was confident in what could and could not be safely traversed. When it came to driving up and down the steep mountain roads of the Ngorngoro Crater we had full confidence in our well-being.

The accommodations Tanzania Choice booked for us were all outstanding. They regularly visit many of the accommodations in the national park areas and provide the best ones to their customers. We were very happy with all three of our overnight lodgings. All were comfortable, had good food, and stuck to our budget.

Overall this was the trip of a lifetime. Going in, we imagined this was going to be amazing. This met and far exceeded our expectations. We could not be happier with how this safari turned out. Highly, highly recommend!

Probably as good as it gets in the real world - our expectations where met, which is not easy.

This was by far not our (wife + me) first safari (we spent three years in Kenya; also did tours in Zambia, Botswana, Ruanda, South Africa); thus, we are rather spoiled clients with high expectations.

It was a well-planned safari with loads of animals; communication during run-up was clear and quick; the guide/driver was top-nodge; the car reliably serviced.

Altogether, our impression is that it was worth the (high) price; and that we can calmly recommend TZ Choice to others. In the (probable) case we want to come back to TZ, we will most probably ask for their service again.

Everything Was Perfect!

My wife and I had an amazing experience on the vacation we booked through Tanzania Choice Safaris! The ease of communication with Brenda made trip planning easy. Our tour guide, Leslie, was phenomenal. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the birds, animals and various critters along the way. It was clear he was one of the best guides as we often had other vehicles following us due to good ability to find the animals. He showed the upmost respect for all the animals and other Safari guides while always making sure we got as close to every animal while maintaining proper space. Leslie was a superb driver and never got stuck despite the terrain putting is in some precarious situations. His personality traits are top notch - patience, on time, courteous, respectful, diligent, thorough, detailed, and on and on. We sure hated to say goodbye to him. I highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris to anyone looking for the vacation of a lifetime!

My trek up Mt Kilimanjaro and safari with Tanzania Choice Safaris exceeded my expectations!!

I highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris for both climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and their safari tour(s)!! From the first time I reached out to Brenda at TCS to our return home, they were easy to communicate with (email and Skype) and always very responsive! They answered all our questions... even the ones we didn't know to ask. Our guides on both the trek and safari were amazing!! They were very knowledgeable, helpful, and spoke great English. They made us feel comfortable, welcome, and shared a lot about their culture and country. They were always very punctual and informed us each day what to expect the following day. Our trekking guides (Festo and Michael) got us to the summit and made sure we did it safely...pole, pole! Our safari guide (Leslie) was a great driver and got us very close to all the animals. He taught us a lot about the animals and had a wonderful personality. The food on the entire trip was excellent and accommodations they put us in were all very nice. The service on the entire trip was top notch and the trip exceeded our expectations! THANK YOU, Tanzania Choice Safaris, for the amazing lifelong memories and your kind hospitality!!

The safari was the perfect pace to see many things but also to relish the close encounters

Because we only had two days for our safari, we really appreciated Brenda being able to pinpoint exactly where to go to maximize our enjoyment. There were absolutely no worries about the planning, everything was clear and unfolded exactly as expected.

We were so lucky to have Kakasii as our guide. He encouraged us to start early both days so we could see more exciting things. His pacing of the trip was superb. He gave us lots of time to really enjoy the animals, but kept us moving so we got to see lots of different places. His knowledge of the animals and birds added so much to our enjoyment. Most of all, we appreciated his sense of wonder and excitement, even though he has seen it all before a million times. He made our companions feel so welcome and comfortable on their first park safari. It was a joyful experience!

Some of the road conditions were difficult due to the recent rains. Kakasii's driving was expert, to say the least. We also appreciated his attention to safety.

We all loved Eileen's. Our companions really enjoyed the clean pool, and we enjoyed the peaceful garden. All of us loved the food! The rooms were spacious and immaculate. The entire experience at Eileen's was comfortable, stress-free, and everything went like clockwork.

All in all, an unforgettable experience for all of us!

Custom Safari Trip for our limited time

We were in Tanzania for work and were looking for a bespoke safari experience for a just short 2 day period. A friend recommended Tanzania Choice Safaris. A short email to Brenda resulted in a quick reply with an entire custom schedule! The payment and arrangements were timely and flawless.
Upon arrival, we were met by our guides, Kakasii and Noel, who immediately took us on safari. Due to severe rains, our truck got stuck in the mud on the first night. Kakasii and Noel, aware that we only had the next day, got up at 3 am to dig the car out of the mud! This dedication to our experience was very much appreciated. We saw many animals based on Kakasii's deep knowledge and experience in this region.
I highly recommend this safari team, and in fact, will use them for my friends, family, and colleagues in the near future!
