Perfect from planning, to arrival, to driving, to guiding, to chatting, to lodges. Perfection.
5/5

We organised a 3 days safari in Tanzania (Tarangire, Manyara, and Ngorongoro) with Zohar with the amazing Tom as a guide.
The trip was truly perfect, from the initial contacts (very quick to reply, with detailed answers) in which they were friendly, quick and open to whatever small changes we wanted to make. They organised a domestic flight for us and Tom was waiting for us at the airport.
During the safari the guide was making sure we were happy with whatever we were doing, and let us choose most of the itineraries and times. He talked us through their cultures and habits, but left us time and silence when we needed it.
Finally, for his 15-years experience, he always got us the best spots for taking photos!
Truly wonderful experience, would highly recommend with no hesitation. Also the choices of lodges were amazing, fantastic spots for relaxing in the nature.

We love Zohar & highly recommend their tours!
5/5

If you are currently reading reviews deciding which safari company to book with…stop searching, and book with Zohar. We originally decided to book with Zohar because of Lilian’s timely and thorough responses, and our entire experience proved we made the correct decision. We felt supported by the Zohar staff before and during our entire Safari (special shout-out to our guide Tom, Lilian, Goodluck, and David for their amazing hospitality)!

We were under the care of our guide Tom and could not ask for a more knowledgeable and friendly person to take us on our safari. Tom handled everything from scheduling meals, registering at parks, navigating the area (without a GPS!), and communicating important details with the lodge staff. He was a wealth of information and answered all of our questions relating to all things Tanzania (wildlife, culture, teaching us Swahili). Tom has a great eye for spotting wildlife, and we saw something spectacular nearly every day on our safari. As two women traveling alone, we always felt safe and respected by Tom. We said goodbye to a good friend by the time Tom dropped us off at the airport.

The Safari vehicle is very sturdy. I usually have motion sickness on bumpy roads but didn’t feel sick once during our trip. The majority of the Safari is spent on dirt roads with uneven surfaces. The vehicle has great shocks and is made of steel, and we always felt safe from wildlife and any road hazards.

Tipping on the safari was appreciated (and expected). We brought plenty of small bills in USD and tipped the lodge staff for carrying our bags, at meals, and at the end of our stay. We also tipped our canoe and hiking guides, the airport shuttle driver, and the pilot/ground crew/transport driver for the hot air balloon ride. And of course, be sure to bring cash for your safari guide! Most places did not take credit card. We never exchanged USD for Tanzanian shillings, though some prices were a little cheaper in shillings.

We recommend bringing wet wipes to clean your hands and a scarf/something to cover your hair, as it can get very dusty during game drives (but so worth it!).

Asante sana to the entire Zohar staff! We loved our trip and will recommend Zohar to our family and friends.

Excellent and lveoly team all working hard to ensure you have a perfect holiday!
5/5

As is the case probably for many booking their first safari trip - the amount of companies and safari options is overwhelming. We have ultimately decided to do it with Zohar, mainly because how quickly Lilian understood what we wanted and how engaging and responsive she was from the very beginning. Her suggestions as to how can we modify / improve our trip were spot on and exactly how we wanted it to be. The price/value ratio was also among the best ones we received from other companies. Lilian is super super nice and we were very relaxed before coming to Tanzania because we knew our honeymoon trip was in good hands.

Upon arriving to Tanzania, we were met by Lilian and some of her colleagues. And oh my are they all lovely. We also met our guide - Solomon. Once we entered our first national park I immediatelly realized how experienced, knowledgebale and interesting Solomon is. He would tell you many facts and stories about the animals, the national park, the villagies, cities, Tanzania cultures etc. And most importantly - he always thinking of keeping you safe. Solomon knew about things we wanted to see the most and did everything he could to have it accomplished - and he succeeded. We also liked that Solomon shown his flexibility and didn't hesitate to make his own suggestions (e.g. waking up early in the morning and doing a full day game drive - we are not morning persons but morning game drives were by far the best!!!). I really couldn't think of a better guide for this safari than Solomon and at the end wished that trip never ended.

If you reading this review while being unsure which company to book with - I have now doubts you will not be disappointed with Zohar. They are truly an exceptional team all working very hard to ensure you have perfect vacation. For us, it was one of the best trips of our lives. And if we were ever to go back to Tanzania, I would definititely do it again with Zohar.

Thanks to Zohar team for making this trip so special.

Perfect Safari!!
5/5

It was great! the tour guides were great! We saw the big 5 after 2 days because the guides are very well trained and shared their knowledge with us. it was extremely exciting to listen to them. It was breathtakingly beautiful and we can only recommend it!! We ate in the Serengeti and saw zebras, giraffes, hyenas, gazelles, elephants, leopards, lions and more! Seeing the animals in the wild was amazing. It was the best and most exciting vacation we had. To see the nature of Africa like this was very impressive! We spent the night in the middle of the Serengeti and heard the roar of lions and hyenas at night, how impressive! Thanks again to Dave and the team!

Amazing Safari
5/5

Lilian and her team planned the perfect honeymoon safari for us. Everything was superbly organised with cute little personal touches. Solomon, our guide, was very knowledgeable and an expert at spotting animals hundreds of meters away. We were truly amazed! Couldn't have asked for better!

Amazing honeymoon!
5/5

We booked a 10 day honeymoon with Zohar African Safaris and couldn't be happier with our experience! We exchanged 40+ emails with the lovely owner, Lilian, as she helped us plan an itinerary that would allow us to experience what we wanted while still working within our budget. It was truly the most stress-free vacation planning we have ever done as Lilian took care of every detail. We also had no worries (hakuna matata) the entire time we were in Tanzania as the whole trip was so well planned and organized that we were able to enjoy ourselves and experience the beautiful country to its fullest. Lilian also included many additional touches throughout the trip that made our honeymoon feel extra special.

Our driver, David, was amazing also! He was so friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable. We often felt that we had an advantage over other vehicles in the park as David was so skilled at recognizing animal behavior and predicting their movements. I still can't believe he spotted some of the animals he did when they were so far away or so well camouflaged!

Overall, it was a beautifully amazing honeymoon, in large part to the efforts of everyone at Zohar. I can't imagine there are many companies that can do it better than their team, and we hope to work with them again if we are able to make it back!

Personalized safari tour - high quality
5/5

Amazing communication with Lilian. She directly understood our wish and need. Always available and makes it a real pleasure to organize the trip. Extremely kind, committed and available. Service is high quality. The whole safari was very well organized (9 days for 2). The car was nice and always kept clean, lodges are all high level standing, very professional driver (Godson). The national parks were wonderful, and we could see the big 5! Amazing discovery thanks to Zohar team. Lilian is committed and always available, and extremely welcoming!

Perfect Safari from start to finish
5/5

We did an 8 day safari with Zohar in September and had an amazing time.
It started with perfect communication and planning, but didn’t end there. We had a super nice airport pickup, a perfect guide (thanks so much, Tom for making these days so much fun!), amazing lodges, food, company and stunning game drives.
A honeymoon that we will remember our whole life. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Amazing Experience & Friendly Staff
5/5

Zohar offers private tours, I took one by myself for my birthday and the entire experience was amazing. From the booking to the end of the safari the staff was extremely professional, quick to respond and very nice and accommodating. I plan on returning to Tanzania and taking a longer tour with Zohar!

They made our honeymoon better than we could ever imagine. Our driver Bonifas (who is the real king of the Serengiti) and Lillian (lovely boss) made our every second special. Whatever you want, they make it happen. Thank you guys so much!!!
