Meru slopes gave me a fantastic adventure. From pick up and transfer to the tour itself was perfect. The 5 day safari I did was amazing. We saw all the animals and had a great time. Especially our driver, Jacob, is very experienced, knows a lot about animals and can answer any questions. I recommend Meru slopes to everyone.

Unforgettable Safari Experience
I recommend Meru Slopes Tours & Safaris because it not only convinced with the price, but also offered a straightforward and professional service. The 5-Day Join Group Northern Tanzania Safari included 1 day Tarangire National Park, 2 days Serengeti National Park and 1 day Ngorongoro Crater (including 3 nights in National Park camps). Lake Manyara National Park was not visited after agreement.
We were an international group of 6 with 2 couples; it could not have been a better fit.
The set up of the camp went smoothly and the equipment was fine (tent, mattress, sleeping bag). I slept well. The cold shower at the Serengeti campsite is part of camping. The food was freshly prepared every day and was delicious.
From the beginning we saw many different animals, from the Big, Small and Ugly Five. The savannah and wildlife of the Serengeti enchant. Watching the lions stalk the passing herd of buffalo was an adventurous endeavor. The Ngorongoro Crater is the highlight of the safari, a paradise of wild animals. Despite our guide's best efforts, in the end only one of the big five remained undiscovered.
Jacob is a great guide, all questions were answered competently. He sees animals out of nowhere and took more distant trails to see even more. His ease with explanations and humor contributed to a fantastic atmosphere within the group. And if you are lucky, you will get the pleasure to hear the Kilimanjaro song....
Thank you Jacob, Dula and Meru Slopes for this unforgettable Safari experience!

We had a really nice trip, all organised, but also flexible to our wishes. Our guide Douglas gave us interessting facts (we could ask him everything) and our cook Moshi always created delicious food - both really friendly, funny and they made sure that we feel well. All sleeping equipment was available and it is a nice experience to sleep in the nature in the tent (although a little bit cold;)). Just recommendable!!

Kilimanjaro and safari - fantastic experience
We booked two tours with Meru Slopes. 7 days Kilimanjaro via Lemosho route and 7 days safari in Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Arusha.The Charity Hotel in Arusha where we stayed between the tours was a little old but all in all also quite good. We had fantastic guides and accomodations (especially tented lodge in serengeti) and amazing cooks who served food for us every day. Our guides Izmael and Eddy always did their best to make our time unforgettable. Thanks to them and the whole Team of Meru Slopes!

Meru Slopes was Awesome
We had a great experience with Meru Slopes. Other operators we checked with couldn't believe the price we got - which made us nervous, until we actually did the Safari. We were not disappointed. We had a great driver & guide (Daniel) who was incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife. He taught us a lot about all the birds and wildlife, and he never hurried us to leave a spot. Our early mornings (highly recommended) meant that we had some unencumbered wildlife encounters without others around. Salim (our cook) wise likewise excellent. We are vegetarian, and Salim did a great job of making delicious food. We had different soups every night and hot lunches every day. Geofrey (the owner/manager) was super communicative, very helpful, and when we had an issue (on our end) with a bank transfer, there was never a worry from Geofrey. If you have a budget and need an inexpensive option, you will see exactly the same wildlife on this trip and the guide, cook, food & transportation is excellent.

Classy all the way through
Have been on safaris in 10+ countries and our guide/driver Jacob was on his own level: super knowledgeable, relaxed, considerate and one of the most genuinely harmonious people we've ever met. We saw many leopards, cheetahs, lion cubs and couldn't have dreamt about seeing more. Being able to stay longer with the animals we preferred was another plus. Having our own chef, Salimu, made everything perfect. Very nice people all of them, Meru Slopes.

Amazing safari experience
From pick up at Kilimanjaro airport to Arusha, Tarangire, Lake Mayanara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and back via the hot springs to Kilimanjaro, what a trip! The guide Edi was exceptional and always seemed to know where to find the most exciting things to see each day...from lions or leopards in trees to a cheetah that just had its kill lined up ready to start his breakfast....lions eating enmasse, baby wildebeest running beside mum, zebra being stalked by jackals.....from sunrise to sunset he had it all covered! Elephants surrounding us and being told off by mum with her huge flapping ears as she protected her baby.....and the nerdy teenage elephant stomping his foot and throwing a large branch towards us. The smell from the hippopotamus will not be forgotten....or the sound of the buffalo snorting and munching on the other side of the tent in Simba camp. The rhino being photobombed by wildebeest was the icing on the cake. Giraffes popping their heads up to the highest trees and baboons being laid back in the morning sun. So many animals and birds, a real sight to behold. Every member of staff made us welcome and Geoffrey was so helpful. On our last day he organised a driver to take us to springs on the way to the airport and the water was so clear and cosy...a real treat to finish our time in Tanzania. Thank you all for making this such a great holiday

Best safari at best price!
Our private 6-day safari with driver-guide JACOB and cook RACHIDI was absolutely fantastic. Meru Slopes was not only the cheapest I could find for our program, they were also the most flexible for all our personal preferences. We had an optional walking safari + a bicycle tour (Lake Manyata) included.
Guide Jacob is a very efficient and patient organizer. He spotted so many animals : tree-climbing lions, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards, buffaloes, hippo's and many many wildebeests, zebras etc.
Jacob even organised a surprise birthday song-dance for my birthday and our sweet Rachidi baked a beautiful birthday cake :-)
