Great value and great stuff

We had good luck through the teviews before choosing our budget safari and chose Killiholidays and i think we were very lucky in our choice.
The money exchange at first seemed a problem because there was no paypal or credit cards but we trusted them and in the end everything was fine, Mack was quite relaxed and we had to trust him.
This is a safari that really puts you in touch with the people and the Selous, the driving looked daunting but the landcruiser was fine and our driver Tumsufi was excellent,he really looked out for us and could,nt do enough.
Driving through the landscape you really get a sense of the place and where you are heading.
I would not hesitate to do this again with Killiholidays all their staff Moses, Mack and Tumsufi have the best intentions in making sure you have a fantastic time.
In only one day we saw so much, lions,giraffes, elephants,hyenas,warthogs and hippos our only regret is we didn,t book for longer.

great experience, best value!

we went to a 5 days honeymoon safari with kiliholidays. We visited Tarangire National Park, Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro NP and Lake Manyara. Mack the owner is a very nice man he helped us with getting from and to the airport, Thomas the instractor was very pleasent and profesional, the food was nice, we got to see the big five and the overall experience was just great!
beacause we eat only kosher food Mack was kind enouph to bring us new dish, pans, and cooking only vegeterian food. it was a great service wich he asked for nothing in return, and it says everything about this company.
i recomend this company for everyone who wants a good experience in the best value for money!
thanks for everything!!

Fantastic experience, well organised tripp

In September 2016 we took a 6 day safari (midclass) with Kiliholidays. During this trip we visited Tarangire National Park, Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro NP and Lake Manyara. We were very fortunate to see a lot of animals upclose. Our guide Mike was really nice, showed great hospitality and really 'knew his stuff' about the wildlife and the history of Tanzania. Also the contact with Mack, by mail and whatsapp was quick and adequate. Accomodations were clean and beautiful and lived up to our expectations. We definitely recommand Kiliholidays. If we visit Tanzania again, we would like to travel with them again.

It was a great expereance,we learnt so much about live,nature,people and of course animals!

We were picked up by yeep with a Guide an a Cook in Dar es Salaam ! The english of both was very good . The Guide told us so much about nature,animals and live in Tansania.The Drive to Selous Game Reserve took 7 hours with a good lunch in between and was so interesting ! We stayed at Hippo Camp,with view at the river,where you can see the Hippos!! The accommodation was nice and clean , the people friendly and helpful! We did a two hour boat safari,a one day game drive and a walking safari. Each event was georgus, unbeleavabel ,the greatest expereance we ever had!! The food was very good and plenty and tasty! Tank you very much for those 3 days we will never forget!!

We went on the 6 day southern circuit safari with Kiliholidays and we had a fantastic experience from start to finish. We have never booked a trip direct with the tour operator like this before, and Mack, who did the booking for us was really helpful and informative, he answered any questions we had and made booking the holiday really easy and stress-free!
Our guide was called Mike and he was Amazing!! So helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, he knew loads about the wildlife and the culture and traditions of Tanzania. He helped to make our holiday even more special.
We would definitely recommend Kiliholidays (and Mike as a guide) if you are thinking of booking a safari.
A Massive thank you to Mack, Mike and all the staff who made our safari a trip we will never forget!!

It was a pleasure to welcome your party to Tanzania and our hearts are warmed to hear that you enjoyed your time here. 6days is a good length of time to spend here - there is always something new to see, especially if you have as good guide to point everything out. Compliment to Mike our driver and guide. Our staff are always happy to answer e-mails in advance of the trip, as we all realize how big a commitment a safari trip is.

Thank you, both for your visit and your comments.

It was fantastic!

We had a 3-days safari (Tarangire, Lake Manyara and NgoroNgoro). Everything was just wonderful! Mack is a very good manager. He provided us with all information we needed before the trip. First we arrive in Dar es Salaam. There a colleague of Mack Freddy met us and helped to take a bus to Arusha. During our safari we saw a lot of beautiful animals. Our guide Tomas told us a lot of interesting information about behavior of animals, their migration, history of national parks, about the country and its traditions and people. Our chiefs Gedeon and Rima (the second day) cooked really tasty dishes, the accommodation at Panorama camp near Lake Manyara was nice. So we got from safari everything we expected and even more. We definitely recommend Kiliholidays Tour and we will remember this fantastic journey for the whole life. Asante sana!

Fantastic experience with Kiliholidays!

I can give my full recommendation to Kiliholidays. The contact person (Mack) was very helpful, and we managed to arrange all the formalities from home, including the airport transfer to Arusha organized by him (a couple of hours by bus from Dar Es Salaam). During the three day safari we were driving a Toyota Land Cruiser, and despite it was quite an old make it was indeed in mint condition. The driver (Tom) was very professional and helpful and proved to have immense knowledge about the wildlife. After a full day of driving around the national parks our cook (Rama) treated us with some of the most delicious food we had eaten during our stay in the mainland of Tanzania. Overall, the three day safari experience (including a day at Ngorongoro, a day at Tarangire and one at Lake Manyara) was a memorable experience, and not only due to the picturesque landscapes and the wildlife, but also because of the way it was organized. Overall, I would give a full five-star rating to Kiliholidays!

Amazing adventure with really experienced guide

Kiliholidays was really excellent. We really didn't know what to expect when you are arranging your safari from so far away. We were very pleasantly surprised that Mack our contact had sent our driver to collect us from the airport then we met him at his office to go over the finer details. We had good accommodation in Arusha and set off early the next day for Lake Manyara. This is very beautiful and a great introduction to the wildlife we saw later. We camped the first night to save on cost which was good and the food was excellent. The next day was spent heading to the Serengeti, we saw lots of Masai and plenty of wildlife. Our guide John was very experienced and spotted animals we couldn't even see.

Our accommodation in serena lodge was spectacular, no fences and wildlife is all around you. The next day was in serengetu again then onto Ngorogoro crater. This was really a special place for us with so much animals all in one place. We saw everything and again stayed at the Serena lodge in that location which is one of the best hotels I have ever been too. This ezoerince with Kiliholidays will be one we will not forget. We did this as a family with our 8 year old daughter who absolutely loved it too even though we spent a lot of time in the safari vehicle. I would recommend Kiliholidays to everyone.
