Amazing adventure... Amazing Tanzania...

Me my friend decided to book the 5-days safari in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with Safari Trackers Adventures. Although at first we were a bit concerned since the price was quite lower than other tour operators offered us for the same itinerary, things came out great!
Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff, with lots of information for both animals and places visited - a real pleasure to be with. The accommodation was mostly basic camping but good (we fell in love with the Simba public campsite in the rim of Ngorongoro Crater where we were on New Year's Eve!!).
I would recommend this company to all people with a sense of adventure and fun, who don't want to spend a fortune but want to get the most out of such a trip.

The review below is the personal opinion of David Poussif and not that of SafariBookings.
Don't book!

The experience with this tour company was bad since the beginning. The communication by email didn't flow, and I always had to chase up Charles to get more information.
They offered me a good price for a 4 days camping safari, I accepted and rejected another tour operator (7wonderssafaris) that gave me a cheaper quote, because Charles seemed to have better reviews.
Charles asked me for a deposit a week earlier and the whole payment in cash the day before the safari, which I didn't feel comfortable to give because even the day before I had to chase up after him to communicate and he still didn't know who the guide will be or what time they would pick us up the next day.
Apparently Charles had another bigger group he would be guiding. This is understandable, but the guide we went with wasn't good. The other tourists complained that he didn't communicate anything with them. I was always talking to the guide and then passing the information to the rest of the tourists.
Even worst, to my surprise, it turned out that this guide was actually from 7WondersSafari !!!
So at the end I paid more to go with the company I rejected because they didn't have good reviews.
The safari itself was good, but the communication and service was deplorable. You can check what we saw here:

Great safari

After obtaining various itineraries from different companies, Safari Trackers had proposed one of the more appealing ones. I was a bit hesitating due to the few reviews and the one bad review, but after having talked to Charles over the phone and hear his side of the story, I decided to go with Safari Trackers.
At the beginning of the safari it became clear that some miscommunication had occurred, but Charles immediately came with a good solution for it. Next we went to Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro for 5 days and saw so many animals, including massive elephants, lions, lionesses and their cubs, cheetahs and cubs, leopards and many more (unfortunately no rhino). Our guide Elli spotted so many animals from far away, had a lot of knowledge about the animals' behaviour and was very sociable and funny. The cook Amidi prepared us some great meals and I especially liked our breakfasts. A few items of the lunchboxes were a bit less tasty in my opinion. But it included 7 or 8 items each time, so enough to choose from. And there was so much food each time, so you'll definitely not be hungry during the safari.
Overall I thought the safari was good, mainly do to the amount of wildlife we saw, our guide Elli and the great food served by Amidi. I would also recommend to spend enough time on the Serengeti, as the area is massive and it is a 4 to 5 hours drive to the park and back. We drove up there in the morning, did a afternoon game, next a full day game and a morning game, before heading to Ngorongoro in the afternoon. I think you'll need this time to also see the uncommon animals, like the cheetahs, the leopards and the cubs.

Good Budget safari company.

My guide was terrific he was always concerned for our safety and comfort. The cook was good, although he didn't have much to work with. You definitely don't go on these budget safari's hoping for gourmet meals! Everything went as planned, even though we had an issue with our truck, it seems like these guys are jacks of all trades. For sure would go again with a group I knew. I went as a tag along with a pre-booked group. That wasn't the best idea; but regardless it forced me to reach outside of my group to make some friends. Turned out they will be life-long friends. Great way to see Africa without spending a fortune !

A brilliant Experience!!

Went on Safari in March, done the 2 day safari experience which was 1 day in Tarangire National Park and 1 day in Ngorongoro crater. Met our tour guide Charles in Arusha, he was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpfull. Picked us up from our hostel in the safari jeep and brought us for our first day to Tarangire National Park. Takes about 2-3 hours to get to the park from Arusha, in which time Charles told us lots of things about Tanzania, Culture, All the national parks and about the Massai tribes whose villages we seen along the way.
Tarangire park is awash with wildlife, Giraffe, Gazelle,Monkeys, lots of Elephants and we even got to see a small pride of lions there. On many occasions we got to get very close to the animals, one occasion being a family of about 50 elephants crossed our track right where we parked up. The tour of the park last about 5-6 hours and then we made our way out and went to our next destination, which was a camp site looking over Lake Manyara.
The campsite is very clean, has good food/beer and has a spectacular view overlooking the plains and lake Manyara, catching the sunrise from here is an amazing experience in itself. Also for those who like stargazing its also a really nice area because there is little light disruption.
Next day we went to Ngorongoro crater, another amazing location. Zebra, Rhino, Buffalo,Hyenas, Wildebeast, Lions and Cheetahs are all here. We were lucky enough to come across a fresh lion kill and see a pregnant lioness chasing off a pack of hyenas.
The whole experience with this safari company was absolutly brilliant, the service provided from having a knowledgeable and experienced guide, nice place to stay, good food and nice packed lunches, a comfortable jeep and all at very very good price is just second to none. My only regret is not spending more time there and going to see the Serenghetti. I wish Charles the best of luck in the future, he takes great pride in his company and its reputation and this shows with the excellent service.
Regards, Martin from Ireland

3-days tour to Ngorongoro and Serengeti

We organized a 3 days tour with Swahili Paradise tours & Safaris but at the end had a tour guide (driver) and cook from Safari Trackers adventure. It will not be reflected on the quality of the tour, because the tour operators have an agreement to provide the same service. At the moment the business is tough and safari operators organize alliances or group together, otherwise it is difficult to stay profitable. We booked a tour to Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti national parks. According to our schedule we should have gone to Serengeti first and then to Ngorongoro. Instead we joined a group that started a tour earlier at Lake Manyara, had a breakfast and proceeded to Ngorongoro crater. It was a good decision of our driver Charles to visit Ngorongoro first and then Serengeti! The road between Serengeti and Ngorongoro is very bad, so if you start your trip in Serengeti, be prepared for 3 hours of dust! Thus, trust your guide if he offers to start in Ngorongoro.
In 2 days we managed to see almost all animals presented in those national parks: elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, crocodile, olive baboon, leopard, hippo, cheetah, lion, hyena, hyrax, golden jackal, impala, Thomson's gazelle, reedbuck, topi, warthog, Grant's gazelle, hartebeest, dik-dik, Grey crowned crane, Kori bustard, Egyptian goose, vulture, mongoose, agama lizard, Guinea fowl, secretary bird, ostrich, egrets, superb starling and many other small birds. It does not necessary mean that you will see all those animals, if you go another time of the year or even another day, because the animals do not stay at one place and always move, so the drivers will do everything what depends on them but you should be also a bit lucky.
Safari is always a roulette - sometimes you are lucky and see a lot of animals but sometimes you are not and see much less than expected. We could not find a rhino but there are only 50 species left and you can imagine that the probability to spot even one on the territory of 80.000 square kilometers in 5-6 hours is pretty low. However, we have seen how cheetah and pride of lions hunt, we saw a leopard sleeping on a tree, we saw an antelope hidden by a leopard on a tree, elephant family taking a bath, vultures eating zebra and it was more than enough in 3 days!
We stayed in basic tent camps in the tents. Our first night was in Lerai special campsite and the second night in Nyani public campsite. Both campsites were pretty good but the water in the shower is naturally warmed by the sun, so be prepared to take barely warm shower. Sometimes in the night you hear wild animals making different sounds close to the camp but it is very safe. However, you may want to have a light, because it is pretty dark in the night far away from civilization :)
Our chef Apollo is the best! If you have a chance, go with Charles and Apollo! Everyday food was different and very tasty! Apollo was studying cooking in a college for one year. For lunch you get a box with fried chicken, sandwich, 2 fruits, biscuits, juice, chocolate or waffle bar. For dinner we have got one time ginger pumpkin soup (super tasty); rice with carrot and green bean sauce and steamed beef, on the second day it was also a soup and cheese pasta with minced meat gravy. Apollo even made banana fried pasty for dessert. The guys from the group, who started the tour one day earlier in Tarangiri said that they had fish for the first dinner, so the food is very diverse. If you are a vegetarian, I am sure, Apollo can make delicious veggie dishes as well, since he had worked in a hotel earlier. Breakfast was also freshly made every morning: omelette with sausages, pancakes with Nutella or peanut butter, toasts, coffee, tea, cocoa, etc.
The last day we have seen a beautiful sunrise in Serengeti. Milky way in Africa is amazing!

Excellent Safari and lifetime experience

We booked a 4-day safari with Safari Trackers in January (included Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti) for March 2018. Charles communication and orientation during the time of planning was perfect, clear and very fluent (used Whatsapp), and once there, everything happened as planned.

We had all transfers, food, accommodations, tickets for the parks, etc. booked and ready to go. He was punctual and ready at all times. He knew all places amazingly well (over 13 years leading these safaris) which made our stay and visit just perfect. We saw all sites and animals (super close!) without having to worry about anything. He shared so much history about the places we visit, the country and the animals! (stories we'll never forget). His driving was also very good (no incidents whatsoever). All accommodations chosen were good (we had a tight budget, but he can help choose what works best for you).

In sum, we could not have chosen a better company to do this. All worked perfectly well, and I'd undoubtedly recommend anyone that they book this with them. Thank you, Safari Trackers, for such an amazing experience!

An experience of a lifetime

A friend of mine and I booked Safari Trackers Adventure for a safari experience in Tanzania. We went to see Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti! The experience on the 4-day tour was amazing!!! Charles, our guide really accommodated all of our interests so that we were able to see everything we wanted out in the wild! From lions and cheetahs, to even a kill!! We stayed at a lodge, which was absolutely breathtaking and I would highly recommend this company!!!

A positive, memorble experience of a lifetime awaits you with Charles Benjamin's skillful guidance.

Charles Benjamin is a superb guide. He knows where to find wildlife, has great informative insights, and a great personality--which is a great asset when you are together for a multi-day safari. We had a spectacular experience of a lifetime, seeing every wild animal we imagined we might see with Charles's insightful leadership on a 7-day safari. We stayed in luxury tents, with bed, western toilet, showers and cooked high-quality meals. The leopard, cheetahs, and hippos were most memorable. The rich array of birds Charles pointed out to us in Serengeti was also a treat. The rough roads were made bearable with his competent driving skills and underlined the fact you are in East Africa, removed from your normal world, experiencing the majesty of a sanctuary for wildlife. Charles's communication skills, responsiveness and willingness to accommodate our interests were essential elements in making each day of this memorable week a true, unique treat. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking a personalized experience seeing bountiful wildlife with competent commentary.
