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!

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!

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.

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!

Kilimanjaro + Safaris + Zanzibar = Tremendous Experience with Tanzania Choice Safaris

Where do you start when booking a trip of a life time to Tanzania? Start with Tanzania Choice Safaris. After one virtual conversation, Brenda perfectly captured everything my family and I wanted to see and do in Tanzania. She provided more than one itinerary to choose from and gave us time to research our options. Brenda always made herself available for questions and was very quick to respond. The Tanzania Choice mountain team was very well experienced and kept us climbers focused and on pace to Kilimanjaro's summit (100% success rate). The Safari guide who took us through Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and could spot any animal with ease. The trip came to a very relaxing end in Zanzibar, which was a great way to end the journey. The accommodations Tanzania Choice suggested throughout the trip were absolutely marvelous. 100% would book and go again. I highly recommend booking with Tanzania Choice Safaris.

A+ Genuine Professionals

Tanzania Choice is a great choice. Our safari was awesome. Everything start to finish was “as advertised”. First class vehicle and accommodations. 8 day Kilimanjaro climb went great as well. The first six days are just a serious “hike”. Summit day is when you need a real professional staff. Your welfare and life can depend on it. Festo and the Tanzania Choice crew know from years of experience exactly what to expect. Trust me, you will be well taken care of and well satisfied with Tanzania Choice!

The Most Amazing Experience of My Life (except maybe childbirth...they're neck-and-neck)

I cannot say enough about how wonderful, amazing, fantastic, perfect, and awesome our trip was. Brenda worked with us for months to plan the perfect 40th birthday/15th wedding anniversary trip and wowzers did she nail it! Every part of our trip went so smoothly. I thought I had planning and organizational skills, but Brenda makes me look like a toddler hyped up on sugar. We stayed in several accommodations throughout the 10 days we were in Tanzania, and each one was great. Brenda took a lot of care in making sure the hotels and camps met my and my husband's personalities and wishes. It's obvious she and Kakasii spend a lot of time scoping locations to ensure client satisfaction.

Kakasii is an absolutely amazing guide. His 23+ years of experience driving and guiding safaris were immediately evident. We saw over 50 species of birds and animals, all of which he knew by sight. Kakasii's mixture of patience, which encouraged us to take our time so we could have a richer experience, and excitement is one of a kind. Despite his years of experience as a safari guide, Kakasii's sense of wonder hasn't waned and is contagious.

Our time spent with Brenda and Kakasii, along with the rest of their family and staff, developed a working relationship into a friendship. We are so grateful to everyone at Tanzania Choice Safaris for their help in planning and executing a trip of a lifetime.

Outstanding experience!

We had an outstanding experience with Tanzania Choice Safaris this May. We spent one day in the Ngorongoro Crater seeing an outstanding collection of wildlife. Our guide, Kakasii, was very knowledgable on the wildlife, the many types of birds, and how to navigate the sometimes flooded trails. The next two days were spent in the Serengeti. Again the wildlife was amazing. After two days we had seen all of the Big Five -- elephants, lions, rhinos, cape buffalo, and finally a leopard with its kill in a tree. The safari vehicle was comfortable, the lodging was amazing and also Kakasii furnished a hot lunch as we enjoyed a scenic stopping point. I would highly recommend Tanzania Choice Safaris!

Knowledgeable and Experienced - the Perfect Choice

We used Tanzania Choice Safaris for a five-day adventure to Serengeti and Ngorongoro. It was among the best trips of my life!

Brenda created a perfect fly-in itinerary which helped maximize the experience and she even found us high-end luxury camps for mid-range prices.

Kakasii guided us to the best spots to see and experience everything, including a close-up visit from an old bull elephant.
