Tanzania Choice Safaris provided a great experience to see the beauty of Tanzania.
5/5

They provided top of the line communications and services. I was blow away by their attention to detail and care they took in all parts of the trip. We were a large group, roughly 30 people, and they managed our size great. Each guide was beyond knowledgeable about the places we went and things we saw. I can not recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris enough.

The best vacation trip of our lives.
5/5

The entire experience, from the planning to the safari itself, was outstanding and well beyond our expectations. Prior to the trip, Brenda was always available to discuss options and to provide answers to all the questions we had. We felt very well prepared and were glad we could customize the trip and do exactly what we wanted to do. We were not limited to pre-packaged itinerary. The trip itself was spectacular, for which most of the credit goes to Leslie, our wonderful guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, helpful, kind, easy going and fun to be with. Also, his eyesight was unbelievable. Each of the parks - Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Tarangire - was special in its own way. We saw an amazing assortment of animals and birds, often so close-up we could have touched them. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean and the staffs were friendly and helpful; we never felt like we were "roughing it." All in all a first class trip that we will never forget.

Absolutely superb in all respects!
5/5

Tanzania Choice is the best agency to use for your safari. They arrange a personalized safari, based on your wishes and their experience. Leslie was our guide and he may be the best in the business! He was very personable, spoke perfect English, and had a vast knowledge of all the animals as well as the different locations. The Ngorogoro Crater is beyond belief as far as animals, but we also really enjoyed Tarangire, where we saw literally more than 100 elephants and all of the Big 5 in one of the most beautiful settings anywhere. The picnic spots in Tarangire are also especially gorgeous. Tanzania Choice also takes care of their guides, and doesn't put any restrictions on them regarding gas usage, etc., which other companies do. Brenda made all the arrangements and booked the best safari experience I could have asked for!

Amazing sights and experiences with a warm, friendly tour operator.
5/5

I recently traveled with Tanzania Choice Safaris and had a wonderful experience. Kakasii, our tour operator, was amazing. Every morning he greeted us with a bright and warm smile and a hearty greeting. He answered our many questions about the crops, plants, trees, animals and people of Tanzania.

When we went on safari, Kakasii and his partner were always able to spot the harder to find animals like the rhinos, lions and elephants. We were able to see so many amazing animals.

Our accommodations and travel arrangements were always very comfortable.

I would highly reccomend Tanzania Choice Safaris to others.

The hospitality and thoughtfulness of Tanzania Choice Safaris is immeasurable!
5/5

Upon our arrival we were greeted and welcomed late at night at the Kilimanjaro Airport by 2 smiling faces that immediately packed up our bags and transported us to our lodge. They made sure all of our needs were met and more. Everything was well orchestrated down to the food, accommodations, scheduling, and the safari tour. It is locally run and owned by Kakasii and his wife Brenda. When on safari, Kakasii and his drivers were very knowledgeable and could answer all of our questions we had about the wildlife and the people. I highly recommend TCS to anyone who is considering a safari or climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. I have been told by very good friends that they do an exceptional job leading a climb up Kili!

Best experience ever!
5/5

The services were wonderful. Everything was planned perfectly and went according to schedule. The preparing went very smoothly. I told them what I wanted, they put together an iteniary and it was perfect. It covered everything I wanted even planning a birthday celebration. The safari itself was totally amazing. Our tour guide, Lesley was so knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the animals and birds too. He was so pleasant and made sure we were very happy with our schedule. I highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safari. Working with Brenda was a pleasure and she was very professional. We will be using this company for all future Safari travels.

Cared for our Every Need
5/5

This was the second tour we had booked with Tanzania Choice Safaris (the first one was two years ago). I had several very specific needs for where we wanted to go and how we wanted this tour to be shaped, including making arrangements to visit some non-profits and people that are not on a usual itinerary. Brenda and Kakasii worked out every detail and arranged for everything I requested. Our tour group (and I) couldn't have been happier with their customer service, with the information that was shared pre-trip, and the way in which we were cared for during our tour. The food, the accommodations, the drivers, the information - all were top notch! We would gladly work with TCS at any time in the future and have advised all of our friends who have interest to check out TCS.

Kakasii was a wonderfully knowledable and thoughtful guide for our very first Safari!
5/5

I would certainly recommend using Tanzania Choice Safaris to anyone who desires a kind, wonderfully knowledgeable, safe, and experienced guide - with a little dash of pizazz throw in for a beautifully spread, unexpected, picnic lunch in the middle of the day! My 13-year-old old son and I thoroughly enjoyed our first safari and he had a LOT of questions!! Kakasii patiently answered questions and let us stop to take photos of our first wild this or wild that - that he had seen a million times before (Tip for first time safarians - zebras and water buffalo are like deer and antelope in the States- unless those are your favorites I would suggest letting him get you to the lions and rhinos and elephants FIRST. The zebra and water buffalo will still be staring straight at you on the way BACK too! :) )
Kakasii's experience and knowledge of animal behavior allowed us to be in the perfect place to watch a lioness track down her lunch! Fortunately, for the smart zebra mom, the Pride did not catch her - but we proudly caught it all on video because Kakasii knew just where to position our jeep in time for the show. The entire day from dawn to dusk was spectacular. Thank you Kakasii for an unforgettable day. I am happy to say I am returning THIS June (with my younger son and a team of 4 others) and will look forward to where you will take us this year! ----as long as you promise to find a GIRAFFE this time! :)

Amzing adventure with Tanzania Choice Safari. Extremely knowledgeable and extremely accommodating.
5/5

Tanzania Choice Safari provided a personal itinerary for my trip and expectations. Skype interview allowed for a timely and efficient communication to express wants and needs. Leslie was my personal guide who was extremely polite, knowledgeable, and willing to go above and beyond to give me the beat experience on the Serengeti! I will definitely use this tour agency again for my future adventures in Tanzania.
