Excellent service, personal attention, flexibility, and knowledge in leading a photo safari.
I am a nature photographer and experienced traveler from Israel. I visited Tanzania with my wife in February 2013 and used Earthlife Expeditions to organize the entire trip. They were recommended to me by a friend of mine. They did a great job,that our experience was beyond our expectations. As an experienced traveler, I found their services outstanding and very unique and we saw lots of wildlife including some killings

Professional - Extremely Knowledgable - Customer Service Oriented
This was the trip of a lifetime for us and I can not imagine anyone that could have done as much for us as Deo and Earthlife did. We customized our tour to maximize viewing and minimalize lounging by leaving the hotel at sun up and not returning until sundown every day. He helped us plan each day's activities and not only was he ready and excited to get under way, but our lunches and drinks were packed, the safari vehicle was prepped, and the arrangements for passes or other day trip requirements were already completed.
I did a great deal of research before booking with Earthlife because, as I said, this was a trip of a lifetime. People talk about going on safari and seeing the "big five". We not only saw the "big five" time and time again, but we saw and experienced so much more. This trip surpassed anything I ever expected and we owe it all to Deo.
Deo is extremely personable, well educated and conversant in several languages. Wherever we went, he was well known and it was obvious he was well respected by everyone we came into contact with - the hotel staff, other tour operators and guides, the Maasai and locals. His knowledge of the wildlife, terrain, foliage and history was nothing short of incredible. Deo is a guy that loves his job, loves people and it shows in everything he does. And, he has amazing eyesight and taught us how to search long distances for wildlife.
Knowledgeable, very accommodating, customized tour and a very nice guide
An amazing experience that I lived with 2 friends. We organized it directly with Deo and customized our trip according to our budget and time available. Deo is very knowledgeable about the earth life, he knows what he is doing and enjoys doing it. I can understand that considering the environments we saw. Really an amazing experience that Deo made so easy for us by planning every thing, telling us good advices and bringing his joy to the trip. We saw so many animals and beautiful landscape.
Really a great safari company and a great team.

above all expectations and memories for life
our contact with Deo the general manager of Earthlife started over the internet and since the begining the communication was fast and clear. we were a group of 5 including 2 children in the age of 12 and 13. we had a lot of questions and we got explenations to all of them. we spent 8 nights and days safariing in all major parks in Tanzania such as serengeti, ngorongoro and lake manyara. thanks to Earthlife and the well experienced guide Zadock, we were able to see a lot of animals including the big 4 ( no rhinos).
accomodation was very good. the children were very excited and happy.
we thank Deo and his team. we will not forget you tanzania and all the wild.

We have booked a safari holiday for my wife and myself. As our requests were very specifics and the duration was longer than the regular trips ,the firm tailor made every detail to fit our demands. We had 18 days of pure enjoyment, visiting all national parks we have specified (Arusha ,central and north serengeti, stayed on the Mara for the crossings (saw 5 crossings) and later drove to Natron and tarangire.
Our guide and driver was a real pro and very nice, addressing all our requests and needs , has vast knowledge of the country , the wild life and vegetation .Erasto has the great skill of spotting animals, identifying them and tell you about their life and habitat. All his explanations were supported with books which were available for us. Being photographers we are very demanding and Erasto our guide was experienced enough to identify our needs and requests. Accomodations were good and in one case when he found out that we were not happy he made , with the support of the firm owner , Deo big efforts to find at the last moment a new and upgraded lodge for us. The firm is small and young which allows them to be flexible to satisfy all our needs and denands. All their drivers/ guides and we have met three of them are people with big experience, vast knowledge and good contacts with their coleagues which helps a lot when you are out there in the wilderness.we were stuck twice in mud and sand and Erasto showed skills in addressing this special situation in no time. The vehicle was a long brand new 6 seater fully equipped Toyota Land cruiser with open roof, fridge charging sockets and so on.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a great safari and game drives enjoying what this wonderfull country has to offer this firm is the right partner for you. We intend to return 2/2016 for the calving season and for sure will go for Earthlife Expeditions again.

Great safari with a great operator
I just got back from Africa a few days ago and would like to share my experience. We traveled for 10 days in the national parks, and went to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Central and North Serengeti, Lake Natron And Tarangire Park. After all that we went to Zanzibar for some relaxation :)
My experience with Earth life expeditions and Deo was absolutely amazing. I have only superlatives to say about the establishment. This company is a smaller one, which gives you the benefit of enjoying a personal, flexible costume made trip, in terms of budget as well as any other preferences.
Deo and the company accommodates their clients to full meaning of the word. We were recommended Deo as well, and he didn't disappoint us one bit.
I would also like to recommend Moison, the safari guide that accompanied us. He was very experienced, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and funny. It was very obvious that all the other guides know him well, and that he knows every dirt road in the national parks, all the good spots to find the animals and his mind was always set to make sure we are happy and satisfied. In the safari you get to spend many many hours with the guide, therefore having the right person for the job is a highly crucial part of having a successful safari, and we defiantly did!

Safari with no worries
My friend and I went on a 10 days Safari, 6 days in Zanaibar between Sept. 21st and Oct.6th of 2014. I must have surveyed dozens of Safari suppliers and Deo from Earthlife Expedition immediately stood out from the crowd. He was extremely helpful throughout the process, sincerely concerned about providing us the best experience possible and very cordial and professional. Throughout the communication, he was responsive, had ample advice and worked within our budget. He was honest and open about what he can and cannot provide and always offered alternatives if he thought other arrangements or routes were preferable for a better experience. We are very happy with our decision to go with Earthlife and this decision was only reinforced by the amazing Safari we had. Our guide and driver was professional, warm and made sure we are comfortable throughout the journey. He knew the parks and the animals habits very well which provided us with excellent sighting and many exciting moments. Working with a smaller company you really get a personal touch and you know your experience is extremely important to them. Earthlife was everything we could expect from a company providing a once in a lifetime experience. We enjoyed every minute of it!

Best tour operator in all of Tanzania
Deo & his crew are one of the most well respected tour providers in all of Africa. What makes them stand out so much from others is the quality of the guides. The guides you use for your trip greatly determine how enjoyable a time you have and they have the best. I recommend this company to any and every person considering going to Africa. Use them and you will not be disappointed!
