An amazing tour.

We booked a 12 day tour for Kenya and Tanzania thru Perfect Wilderness Safari- Tanzania portion done by Mama Savana. Lodging was all nice with Osinon Camp the best. We saw such an amazing variety of animals. Our driver guide Harun knew the habits of the animals. We saw great interactions among the animals. A great tour.

Best Safari ever! Competent, friendly and flexible operator.

My girlfriend and I booked a 5 Days Safari Tour. All questions we had before booking were quickly answered and a detailed Plan for the 5 Days was sent to us. Also a quick rebooking because of a cancelled flight was no problem. Alex and his whole Team are very kind and made us feel super confortable.

We were picked up by our tourguide Harun and the journey began. We had 5 beautiful and unforgettable days. We visited three different Parks, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorogoro Crater where we saw the whole variaty of wildlife of Tanzania. We let the pictures speak for themselfs. Harun our tourguide was just awesome. He is a really funny guy, kind and he really knew everything there is to know about the culture and the Wildlife of Tanzania. Thanks to him, his skills and a little bit of luck we saw lions eating their prey right next to us two times. A leopard was right next to our car and so much more. We really had a great time with our new rafiki Harun. Also the cultural day, our last day, was really cool. We learned about rice and banana farming, the different tribes and had a really great local lunch.

Also the accomondations were outstanding. The lodges were pure luxury with nice views beautiful rooms and very good food. The tented camp was really clean and confortable with delicious food. You sleep savly right next to wildlife of serengeti. It was a real higlight for us.

Overall the service was incredebly good. We enjoyed every minute.

Mama Savana provides excellent value and service for a safari that you will love!

Mama Savana provided excellent service and value from start to finish. They responded very quickly to questions, regardless of time of day. They helped me plan the perfect itinerary, including an ending on the beach in Zanzibar after safari. The accommodations were as good as promised and in many cases even better due to a surprise upgrade. The food was consistently good to fantastic. Our wonderful guide, Allen, knew where and when to find the animals and got us so close I still cannot get over it. He taught us so much about the animals, local culture, language and music. He was a safe driver, knew the parks, and had a reliable car (hugely important). He helped us get to the best vantage point for taking photos. Everything about The entire experience was so much better than I could have asked for our imagined. Everyone at Mama Savana was professional, solicitous and just plain fun. I recommend unequivocally.

WOW! Can’t say enough how wonderful Mama Savana Safaris was to book with! My husband and I found the company on this website and the moment I began communication with Alex, the entire process was awesome. He told us everything we needed to do before hand and helped us along the way when we had inquiries. We had our guide Sammy take us around Kenya and Harun take us around Tanzania! The process of doing a covid19 rapid test across the border was quick and easy too. My favorite moments included seeing a large heard of giraffes at Lake Nakuru, seeing the two remaining northern white rhinos at Ol Pajeta, seeing the large property at Masai Mara, seeing the migration of wildebeest over the Mara River from the northern Serengeti side, seeing leopards hanging out in trees in the central Serengeti and just getting to know our guides in each country. They both were absolutely incredible and I HIGHLY HIGHLY SUGGEST booking with this company. We also had Mustafa drive us our last day and he was incredibly helpful and kind too. It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I will forever be grateful for everything we experienced! We saw all of the big five and then some. Get ready for cheetahs, leopards, lions, elephant herds, different types of giraffes, hyenas…everything! Oh and if you love birds too, this is the trip for you!

Fantastic safari experience!!!

An amazing trip organized by Mama Savana. Alex was very flexible while we considered several itineraries. He was very responsive and provided us all the solutions we could ask for. The safari experience was really amazing. Harun, was our guide in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. He showed remarkable dedication and made our exploration fantastic. There was no day, we didn’t enjoy observing the wild nature so close, thanks to his knowledge and experience. Harun was so helpful in all the aspects of our trip.
Very grateful to Mamasavana and their guide Harun. Highly recommended if you want to have a unique safari experience.

The best!

Perfect experience for first time safari goers. Our guide Joseph couldn't have been better. So informed, patient, and an excellent driver. Accommodations and food were lovey, although box lunches could stand an update for the American tourist.
I highly recommend Mama Savanna African safaris. The company was very accommodating and well run. Absolutely loved every .minute!

Excellent Experience

We just returned from our trip to see the northern circuit and wildebeest migration at the end of August. During the planning period the owner Alex was very helpful in putting together the trip based on our proposed itinerary and was responsive in adjusting as needed. We were very impressed with how quick he responded to any questions, even when it was late at night in Tanzania. We appreciated that he coordinated all airport transfers, including from the airport to our hotel in Arusha and to and from the airport in our Zanzibar extension-something that many other tour operators were not willing to do. Later during our safari he was always available by phone to assist with anything that came up.

By far the best part of our experience was our guide Allen who was incredible. He is very knowledgeable about wildlife, birds, and culture. He amazed us with his ability to spot animals, and on several occasions we were the first at some interesting sighting. We asked how he found one leopard and he said it was by the smell-unbelievable. He frequently suggested places to stop for pictures and knew how to position the vehicle perfectly for the best lighting. He is also a skilled driver, getting us through some hairy spots where another car got stuck. In the north Allen was attentive to the radio and communicated with other drivers to quickly get us in the right spots to see the river crossings. At one point we passed by other cars still waiting at one spot unaware that a crossing was going on a little ways away. Due to Allen’s efforts we saw 4 river crossings in 2 days!

Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend Mama Savana.

The perfect safari itinerary for a great price!

From the very beginning Alex was quick to respond to any questions I had. I had reached out to a number of safari operators and Mama Savana to created the trip I wanted for the best price. Our safari guide, Joseph Temu, was excellent. His knowledge of the wildlife, history of Tanzania and ability to navigate the Serengeti was impressive. He encourage my grandmother and I to be patient with Mother Nature and it paid off. We saw two river crossings. I would encourage all of my friends and family to book with Mama Savana.

Hassel free, covid free, vacation of a lifetime.

If you want a hassle free, flexible, covid free vacation, please visit Tanzania with MamaSavana. They made sure we had a wonderful time. Alex planned our itinerary so that it suited us, as we were travelling with a five year old. Everything was planned so accurarely including our rt pcr test. But the most amazing part was our driver/ tour guide Kissio. He was very accommodating and knew so much about the animals and birds in the region. Always happy and cheerful.
This made the experience extraspecial for us,
Thank you MamaSavana.

Excellently organised safari

Our safari was excellently organised. The communication before the safari was very easy, fast and friendly, taking care of all our wishes and concerns. We had a very good driver with a lot of knowledge about wildlife and African way of life. Therefore we could see the animals in the Serengenti and other National Parks in a special way, staying at interesting spots according to our interest. We will never forget this safari and thank Mama Savana Safaris for this exiting adventure!
