Excellent experience!
5/5

We are on a 5 day Safari with Meru Slope tours in Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We have Idd as a guide and this Safari is better than we have dreamed. Idd knows everything about everything out here and is super flexible, which we needed when our one daughter was sick when we were leaving.
The camp sites are simply so good! And we've seen so much in the first few days. I'm SO glad we didn't order through a Danish company. Meru Slope Tours is local and is so super skilled and professional that we not only feel safe, but also get the most amazing experience.
Thanks! Especially to our sweet and knowledgeable guide.

Safari of our dreams!
5/5

You can book your safari with virtually any operator.
BUT if you want;
- Reliability
- Professional planning
- Trip customization to your expectations AND the season
- Excellent communication
- Selection of the best lodges
- Super tasty food and to not worry about water or other drinks
- Modern cars that can both endure the wilderness and provide maximum comfort
Then our guide - Douglas.
He was not only taking us “from point A to point B” - he was truly caring for us, making sure that we are comfortable and that all our wishes are fulfilled. He knows the area like his home and brought us to totally unexpected places.
Douglas is also an excellent animal tracker. He was able to spot rare species in the distance, but also drove to the special sites so we could see them very close.
He is also a good chat partner so we have enjoyed the long trip also in this aspect.
Ask Godfrey from Meru slope to be guided by Douglas. You will have fun and enjoy your safari just as we did!

5/5

I had two tours with Meru Slopes, 4-day lodge safari and kilimanjaro materuni waterfall in Feb 2021. Everything with this agency was excellent. The price was ok, there were a lot of inclusions, Mr Geofrey was extremely responsiveness to our 1000 questions we have had, the hotels in safari were extremely good, all their personnel extremely carrying, open, and pleasant. Special thanks to Asantaeli, Godfrey, Nuru, Prica and Emanuel. Excellent team. The programs are well crafted and the organisation is perfect. I recommend this agency with full confidence. Thank you Meru Slopes.

Absolutely amazing, great value for money, highly recommended!
5/5

We went for a 4 day group safari with Meru Slopes at the beginning in February 2021. We chose to explore the 3 most famous parks: Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Meru Slopes offer best price and value for money. Our guide Jacob and cook Richard were both friendly, funny, professional and made us feel like one big family. We were other first the leave the camp site and last to come back.
Special thanks to our driver Jacob, who went extra mile to get us very close to every animal and worked very hard to ensure we get to see everything we wanted. He made us discovering the farthest part of parks, meeting wildest animal and thanks to his knowledge and experience we saw the Big Five plus many more animals. Jacob were patient and answered every question we had about animals and landscape. He made us feel safe and comfortable throughout and was the key to us having such a great and life changing experience.
Big thanks for our cook Richard who cooked delicious food for us and surprise us with bottle of wine each evening. Food was varied and fresh. There was always plenty of food and drinks. We were never hungry or thirsty. Meru Slopes will work with any dietary requirements you have.
The jeep vehicle had charges for phone and batteries. Car was very comfortable, spacious and well maintained. The tents, mattresses and sleeping bags were clean. All the equipment were perfect.
We also want to thank you Geoffrey and Emmanueli for their professionalism and perfect organisation. It started with fast and clear communication regarding the trip and what it entailed. Geofrey always responded in a matter of hours and answered all our questions. They arrange all transfer for us, booked 2 nights in very nice hotel - Venice Arusha and also booked for us bus tickets (all included in safari price). Driver were waiting for us when we arrive in Arusha airport and most importantly in early morning to take us to bus station the day after safari. They went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable and stress free.
Thanks for wonderful experience Meru Slopes! We definitely recommend going with this company. Don't hesitate to book. Asante sana! Aga and Kasia

Great Safari - Experience and Organization could not have been better
5/5

***German Version below***

At first we would like to say thank you to Douglas (our great driver guide) and God Bless (our great cook) it was unbelievable what they managed to pull off. It was I bet a lot of stress for them however they were always super nice, thoughtful and so forth.

The Safari could not have been better organized it was very easy via WhatsApp and email and just took a view text and we exchanged all information needed with Goffery (Company head).

Drop offs, pick ups, campgrounds, game drives, free time, meals, tours etc. we’re all perfectly timed. At one campground we even got an upgrade to a room.

Our Camping Safari included Serengeti (two nights), Ngorongoro crater and conservation area, Lake Manyara and Tarangire.

All National Parks and tours were amazing, with different focus (more elephants or predators) and landscapes. We saw everything we wanted (yes big 5) and revived so much interesting information. Our picnic lunch spots always hit great views. And btw picnic doesn’t mean what we understood as picnic it was always a full meal with salat, main course, fruit and coffee&tea!

Thanks again to the whole team and we would definitely urge everyone to do your safari or other adventure (E.g. Kilimanjaro - our next plan) with Meru Slopes!


***Deutsche/German Version***

Zuallererst möchten wir uns bei Douglas (unserem großartigen Fahrer-Guide) und God Bless (unserem großartigen Koch) bedanken. Es war unglaublich, was sie geleistet haben. Trotz des ganzen Stress waren sie immer super nett und bedacht.

Die Safari hätte nicht besser organisiert sein können. Die Kommunikation zur Buchung war sehr einfach per WhatsApp und E-Mail und nahm nur wenig Zeit in Anspruch, in welcher wir alle erforderlichen Informationen mit Goffery (Firmenchef) austauschte.

Abholung, Wegbringen, Campingplätze, Pirschfahrten, Freizeit, Mahlzeiten, Touren usw. waren alle perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt. Auf einem Campingplatz haben wir sogar ein Upgrade auf ein Zimmer bekommen.

Unsere Camping Safari umfasste Serengeti (zwei Nächte), Ngorongoro Krater und Naturschutzgebiet, Lake Manyara und Tarangire.

Alle Nationalparks und Touren waren unglaublich, mit unterschiedlichen Schwerpunkten (immer viele Tiere mal mehr Elefanten oder Raubkatzen etc.) und Landschaften. Wir haben alles gesehen, was wir wollten (ja, die Big 5) und so viele interessante Informationen bekommen.

Unsere Picknick-Plätze zum Mittagessen hatten immer eine tolle Aussicht. Übrigens bedeutet Picknick nicht Picknick, es war immer eine vollständige Mahlzeit mit Salat, Hauptgericht, Obst und Kaffee und Tee!

Nochmals vielen Dank an das gesamte Team und wir möchten auf jeden Fall alle Anhalte, Ihre Safari oder ein anderes Abenteuer (z. B. Kilimanjaro - unser nächster Plan) mit Meru Slopes zubuchen!

"The big five" in six days
5/5

We had a great safari experience with Meru Slopes Tours & Safaris. Before our journey we had excellent help from Geoffrey with fast response to all our questions, usually within minutes.

We had great service through the whole trip, starting and ending at the airport. Our driver/guide Jacob took as around four parks and gave us a unforgettable experience with his great knowledge and good spirit. He went over and above to let us experience "the big five". Apart from the animals the safari also was a great food journey thanks to chef Matthew, who served tasty local food.

We highly recommend Meru Slopes Tours & Safaris to anyone going on safari!

"The Big Five" in six days!
5/5

Excellent and fast communication through WhatsApp. Very good service with pick-up and drop-off at the airport. The safari and service exceeded our expectations. Our guide Jacob went over and above to give us a great safari experience. Most likely he was the happiest when we caught the last one of the "the big five". During the week we had a great local food experience thanks to chef Matthew.

Thanks for a great week
