Amazing Safari with Wonderful People...Book with Tanzania Roadside!
5/5

Booking a safari is scary! Paul responded to us quickly and communicated with us about our requests and planned out our trip even better then we could have. Very detailed itinerary was emailed to us for our approval and everything was handled by Paul. Doing a bank transfer is crazy scary but this company is very trustworthy and reliable. We had an amazing time, our guide Philemon was so great. He was patient, funny and protective of us throughout our safari. We ate dinner with him and talked about life and safari and it was so nice to meet such a great person on the other side of the world, we are still in touch with him even after the trip. Never once did we feel unsafe in Africa - in fact we were sad when it was time to head to Zanzibar at the end of safari - we didn't want to leave Philemon. Except for the black Rhino we saw the big five and it was unbelievable. Elephants right next to the truck, the cheetah jumped on our hood and the lioness scratched her nails on our tire! Zanzibar was beautiful we stayed at Warere resort, small place but great service, wonderful people and accommodations. We specifically wanted a small resort without crowds and that's exactly what we got. Be sure to visit Stone Town and Prison Island to see the tortoises they are so sweet and love attention. While relaxing in Zanzibar at Nungwi Beach we swam with sea turtles and all I can say is it is unbelievable. All the locals are so friendly and helpful, we live in Tennessee and our state is one of the friendliest but the people of Tanzania are so wonderful. This safari was a trip of a lifetime and it did not disappoint, all due to Paul and his employees making this trip unforgettable for us. Book with Tanzania Roadside you will not be disappointed!

Amazing honeymoon trip
5/5

Thank you so much for creating this trip for us, we have booked a luxury trip in a last-minute however they succeed to build a customised fantastic trip for us with luxury hotels (that gave us small surprises for our honeymoon), great good and that fit exactly to our schedule. James was our guild, and driver he made the extra mile and always was trying to get us not only to see the animals but also he was parking in a way so we would have the best photos.

Outstanding service, AMAZING trip!
5/5

We've just returned from a 11-day trip to Tanzania, arranged by Tanzania Roadside Expeditions and I'm still dreaming about it! Paul was so informative and helpful as we were putting together the itinerary. He responded to every question (and there were many!) almost immediately. Our tour guide, Walter, was amazing! He told us everything! About the culture, the people, how to speak Swahili -- we learned so much from him. And his knowledge about the animals and parks we visited was exceptional! The accommodations were lovely - we really felt like we were on safari, sleeping with the animals (but safe). I would definitely recommend you use Paul. You won't be disappointed!

Perfect safari - Joining 5 days Tanzania
5/5

We looked over many safaris on this website - the 5 days joining Tanzania safari was the cheapest on the whole site in its category. We were a bit afraid what we will get but we rolled the dice.
IT WAS AMAZING.
Paul (the owner) helped us with the bookings and making the beginning and end of our tour tailor made. He was always honest, never promised something that was not delivered and we felt really safe throughout the whole trip.

The program itself was really nice - in 4 full days we saw the most important parks in Tanzania, the accommodations were superb, actually we were really surprised how nice all of them were (especially considering the low price - same Hotels were used as the more expensive competitors do). The food was all included as well as water during our tour. Everything was tasty.

The safari guide Justin was nice, we were 5 in our private Jeep - he always followed our instructions, he had many stories of the animals and he had good connection with other guides so that we always knew where to go to see some action. He managed to show us the BIG 5 that is really rare to see nowadays.

All in all we were 1000% satisfied with RoadSide Tanzania as well as all the guides and Paul working for the company. We will come back to Tanzania and for sure we will go with RoadSide.

Amazing experience!! Best tour operator ever!
5/5

My experience with Tanzania Roadside expeditions tour operator was great. Communications was really easy (email or WhatsApp) and Paul (tour operator manager) answered all my questions and doubts on time. We were a group of five people and we spent 2 nights in a lodges and 1 night in tended camp. Both the accommodation types were much better than expected. The safari tour was awesome. One of the best experience of my life. We saw a lot of animals (lions, cheetahs and so on) hunting or resting on the ground.
I suggest this experience to everyone.

Outstanding service at a level that exceeds expectations.
5/5

We are experienced travelers, also experienced throughout Africa. The owner, Paul, was our main POC, and did an exceptional job of understanding our intentions and making every single arrangement we expected. All service operators, in particular, the Safari guide, were top notch. Africa is not a place to travel without precautions and I would be happy to recommend Tanzaniza roadside Expeditions without hesitation for both inexperienced and experienced travelers. Price was not our primary concern - but of note their pricing was significantly LOWER than going direct. We don't do reviews - but these guys warrant it and this is our honest feedback. Can't go wrong using this company, from our 2 week experience.

Wonderful good quality Safari experience
5/5

Paul was very helpful in providing details and responding to questions before the trip. A detailed itinerary was sent out to us months before.
Payment was very smooth and was done in cash at the start of the safari trip. Very trustworthy safari.

Justin who was our driver was really helpful, and brought us around safely. He also made the extra effort to help us spot the Rhino when he could have easily brought us back to the hotel and end his day. 5 star service.

Excellent service, accommodation and itinerary
5/5

We received very prompt replies to our requests to personalise our itinerary for our Tanzanian safari. Having been met on our arrival at the airport, James, our driver and guide, ensured we had a great trip, visiting various National Parks and seeing amazing wildlife. The accommodation was much better than anticipated and we wanted for nothing during our week's trip. Early June was a good time to visit as it was relatively quiet, the animals were not sheltering from the hot sun, and it was a comfortable temperature with no mosquitoes! Have no hesitation in recommending them.

5/5

Paul was very helpful with planning our safari and responded very quickly to our questions.
The safari was truly well organized, we enjoyed it very much.
They picked good accommodations and the food they served was beyond our expectations.
We had a great guide/ driver Justin, who was always making sure we are happy and getting the best customer servise. He was very nice and explained to us a lot about animals and he knew all the good spots, where to find animals. We have seen the big 5 (although the rhinos only from very far).
Also Justin took very good care of us when our car broke down after game drive towards our hotel. He made us feel like nothing even happend, because within 5 minutes after break down another car took us to hotel. Although they fixed the car, company sent another car just to be 100% sure we are good to go for our last day. Very well handled:)

As in other reviews mentioned the jeeps are a bit older (also by other operators).
