A great combination of friendliness and professionalism
5/5

I have been an American Resident in Tanzania for over 15 years and know many many in the tour business here. But when 3 old friends came to visit me from the US I turned to Brenda and Kakasii to coordinate the safari portion of the trip. We did a four day safari to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. With Tanzania Choice Safaris I was confident all details would be handled properly, the experience would be a cut above, and the price fair. I was not disappointed. We were extremely satisfied and would encourage other travelers to keep Tanzania Choice in mind.

Tanzania Choice is outstanding, and helped us have a superior, amazing safari experience.
5/5

We have just returned from 5 amazing days in Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We were referred to Tanzania Choice by friends who have been repeat clients, and we found them absolutely wonderful to work with. Brenda always responded quickly, listened to what we hoped to do, identified excellent properties at COVID-discounted rates, and proposed an itinerary which we approved. She booked our flights and sent preparatory instructions, and kept in touch with our guide throughout our trip. Kakasii, our guide, has more than twenty years of experience, and it showed. He navigated the parks like the back of his hand, and gave us close encounters with wildlife well beyond those of most safaris, speaking knowledgeably about every animal we saw -- from the smallest bird to the largest elephant. We were in the best of hands. Four days later, we are still high from the entire trip, and are eager to get back out to see more of Tanzania's landscapes and wildlife. Our safari completely exceeded our expectations, and we recommend Tanzania Choice with enthusiasm and gratitude.

The most amazing Virtual Safari I could have imagined!
5/5

Brenda and her wonderful Husband created the most amazing Virtual Safari experience for the company where I work at here in California. In these Covid times, in person gatherings has not been a option. Thankfully Tanzania Choice Safari's has these fantastic virtual events where we can come together safely and see the most incredible creatures from the comfort of our own chairs. Not only did I feel transported to another place, I was amazed by how much I was able to see and learn about the animals and culture of Tanzania. Their personal experiences as a Tour Guide made it even richer! I totally recommend this experience to anyone and everyone who is interested in Safari's and especially those who cant make it to Tanzania in person. Thank You Brenda and family for an amazing experience I will never forget!

Family Safari with Teens
5/5

We truly enjoyed the experience. We were going to visit the Serengeti in October, but needed to cancel b/c of work. Brenda produced a nice itinerary for us already, so we were excited to get back with her. Since we are novices, we left the planning to her with some general guidelines. After we received our December itinerary and it looked great. We made one suggested change and then we were off.

Everything was super smooth. Kakasii, the guide, picked us up at the airport and was with us the entire time. He made every effort to get us to see everything we wanted to. Sometimes we left a location we were enjoying wondering why we were departing, only to see something even more interesting. No need to go over our itinerary, I would just tell Tanzania Choice what you want to do and leave everything to them.

Incredible Experience with Tanzania Choice Safaris!
5/5

From the beginning of planning for safari Tanzania Choice Safaris was outstanding. From planning what would be best for us given the time of year and our interests it was a perfect experience. We went to 3 parks, all different, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti. Plus Olduvai Gorge, not to be missed if you love history. The accommodations were above expectations.
Leslie was our guide, he was personable, knowledgeable and quickly figured out what worked for us. Other guides often sought him out for advice when we made stops.
We saw amazing animals and scenery.
I plan to book again with Tanzania Choice Safaris!

Highly professional, friendly, and informative safari driver!
5/5

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!!!!!!
5/5

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
5/5

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!
5/5

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.
5/5

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!
