excellent experienceIl
5/5

We booked via internet a 5-day private budget safari to Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. After some research, Kiliholidays gave us the best rate. Even the transfer from Kilimanjaro airport to Arusha was included. And we really received great value for the money.
The whole safari exceeded our expectations in every way. Instead of 4 nights camping, we stayed the first and the last night in Haven Nature Tented Lodge, in clean spacious tents with real beds.
Our guide, Godson, was excellent. He knows a lot about the animals, can find them easily and is a good and safe driver. He has a very good scense of humour, we had a lot of fun with him.
In Serengeti and the Ngorongoro conservation area he proposed us to leave the camping as early as 6 - 6.30 in the morning. So we were the first to descend into the crater, and had the luck to observe the rhinos from nearby. Also our young cook, Habibu pampered us with excellent food and service and a lot of humour.
We had a wonderful time and recommend Kiliholidays to everyone.

5/5

Thanks to Kiliholidays, operator Mack and guide Godson, I had a great time in safari.
They are from Masai trive, so guide is very experienced.
I could see all Big5!! They told me “you re very very lucky!”

Though camping gadget ,plates and cups are not brand-new, it’s more important to see many animals, I think.

Mack is very kind, he replies quickly and gently.
If you have a question, send him email without hesitation.
They are very good English speaker.

He picked and dropped me at the airport , the café, the restaurant.
It’s very helpful, because I traveled alone.

Enjoy your safari trip!

4日間のツアーに参加。
big5もコンプリートして満足!
オペレーターのマックもガイドのガッソンもマサイ出身。
驚異的な視力と嗅覚でいち早く動物を見つけてくれます。

車とか食器とかキャンピング道具は古いです。
でもたくさん動物が見れたので満足です♪

日本語ガイドが必要なら一日50$の追加で手配できるとのことでした。
どの程度の日本語力かは不明ですが。
英語は問題ないので、英語できる方なら問題ないかと・・・
ちなみに、ネットで予約しましたが、予約料は取られず、現地で現金払いでした。

サファリの真ん中でテント泊なんて一生に一度だと思うので、当社の予定外だけどいい思い出です。

Excellent service; great safari; great guides!
5/5

We booked very spontaneously a little 3-day Safari (starting from Arusha to Tarangire Nationalpark, then to Ngorongoro Crater, then Lake Manyara National Park). We had a great guide (and also safe driver), excellent accomodation (Panorama Campsite - amazing view) and overall a great time on safari. The service round the trip was super, starting with organising vegetarian meals (which were also fine!) to driving us through Arusha and picking us up directly at the bus station, so we never felt lost :)
After the safari we booked another local tour, and it was just like the same: great guide, great tour, great time. We spent a day walking through a village nearby, seeing local projects and eating local food.
After that, they even helped us booking our next flight.
Overall: Excellent, big recommendation!

I booked a custom safari in the southern parks of Tanzania (Ruaha NP, Mikumi NP and Selous GR) for my two daughters and me and get a unforgettable eight days trip full of amazing impressions. Although I contacted Kiliholiday Tours very late (less than a week before arriving in Africa) there were no problems to do the planning and everything was well prepared. We were picked up at the airportin Dar and dropped after a great journey at the ferry to Zanzibar. The communication with Mack is very fast and professional. It was a great pleasure to explore the beautiful wildlife with our experienced guides (Rama & John). Both of them shared willingly there big knowledge and were very patient with the kids. Thank you for that and a safe and very impressive trip. What can I say: best pricing, well organized, fast communication (before, while and after) and very reliable - if you are looking for an tour operator in East Africa I can highly recommend Kiliholidays Tours & Safaris.

5/5

Good company to organize wildlife safari. We had a reasonable price as weigh against other tour operators. We did some research over the internet, reading reviews, asking questions with several safari companies but we decided to get Kiliholidays Tours because of good reviews and they answered every question promptly, we did the right pick. We had amazing visit Tanzania national parks. Many thanks to Mack and our jolly tour guide Godson who was easy to get along with, careful with his driving, very informative and always making sure that we are ok all the time. Godson made it all come true! He has a fantastic ability to "read our minds", we enjoyed and appreciate his wittiness and expert skills as we felt safe during the entire trip and because of him, I would definitely recommend Kiliholidays Tours.... with two thumbs up!!

Tanzania: Great coming back
5/5

Thanks kiliholidays Tours it was a great experience we had from you guys.
An experience of a lifetime. Felt thoroughly looked after and catered to.

We saw the most amazing wildlife and were privileged with the vast bush knowledge of our guide Godson, and the love of the Tanzania for their landscape.
We made the vacation to climb Kilimanjaro and then the 7days camping in the wild.

When I was searching for the tour operator, I really wanted to stick with one company for both the climb and the safari. I also didn't want the hassle of figuring out how to get to the lodge, where to get food, do the research on which places to stay away from... the trip with Kiliholidays solved all that.

When we landed at the airport, Godson was there, waited for us for several hours when our layover flight was delayed, and drove us to our first-Arusha crown hotel. This set the pace for the entire trip: we never had to worry about our transportation and our itinerary was pretty much handled for the entire 16-days safari.

This was budget camping safari, as many of the other tours were much more expensive. But we had excellent service and great accommodations throughout. When we were climbing Kili, I noticed that some tours had portable bathrooms that would be set up at most of the stops. We did not have these and had to use the common latrines with everyone else. They weren't always pleasant.
But overall, it was an amazing experience. Our mountain guide Gabriel (Angel) was great and did everything in his power to make sure all of us safely and successfully reached the summit. Our safari guide Godson was very knowledgeable and flexible in terms of where to go and all the wildlife.

Everyone, everywhere, was so genuinely radiant and generous, and we are in love with the Tanzania people!

Thanks to Kiliholidays for good guidance and organizing a wonderful safari to us.
