Our tour operators Ken, Emanuel and William were very knowledgeable, entertaining, and awesome.

We were supposed to go on this trip last year, but had to cancel due to Covid. We already paid 20% and were a bit apprehensive whether we'd be able to reschedule our trip. We communicated with Paul and he assured us we could reschedule to go at any time. This summer we decided to go for it since things in East Africa seemed pretty good and we were vaccinated. Paul was very informative and helpful when I tried to organize the trip answering my numerous emails very promptly. When we landed we were pleasantly surprised that our guides have been vaccinated! We began the trip with Ken as our guide in Kenya. We visited lake Naivasha, and then Masai Mara game reserve for several days. Ken was extremely knowledgeable, he knew the name of every animal and bird we encountered. He also had an uncanny ability to find the animals! we would always be the first ones on the scene before all the other jeeps. We were even able to see an immediate aftermath of a lioness hunting a wildebeest. Once we got to the border with Tanzania Ken seamlessly transferred us to into the care of our Tanzanian guide Emanuel who drove us to the Serengeti. We spent a few days in Serengeti which was amazing! Emanuel was just as knowledgeable as Ken, and he also was a big story teller about the culture in Tanzania. He had a little book with some Swahili words and expressions and by the end of 5 days we could say a few of them :). The accommodations in Serengeti were absolutely amazing. It is called tent camping but I've never seen a tent quite like that. The tent had several rooms, a proper shower and bathroom. You could hear and sometimes see the animals right outside the tent. We visited the Ngorongoro crater, Lake Manyara national park and Tarangire. All the parks were amazing in their own way with different birds, animals and flora. From the plains of Serengeti to woods in Tarangire. we then crossed back to Kenya where Ken picked us up at the border and drove to Amboseli national park. Again the accommodations were incredible! Because of Covid we had to get tested before our flight back which was arranged for us and was quick and painless. We stayed an extra day in Nairobi where our guide William took us to Elephant orphanage, giraffe center and a museum. Overall it was an amazing experience made really easy since all the planning once we got there was done for us. I highly recommend Tanzania Roadside Expeditions and in particular their guides Ken, Emanuel and William!

Great professional team

We started in Nairobi and went for safari in Masai Mara, Serengetti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire. Amazing honeymoon!!! South of Serengeti was not that exiting this time of the year, Tarangire was excellent to end, a beautiful region and lots of elephants.
Last week we stay in Zanzibar, relaxing island with good vibes.

Amazing experience with Roadside

We read many of the reviews written here by previous travellers and decided to go with Roadside. I will tell you this: the reviews are all TRUE! From the very beginning Paul was attentive and replied to our needs in an excellent manner and rapidly. We ended up making a 7 days, 6 nights Safari and the praise for each of the people we met during our adventures won't never be enough.
I would recommend anyone to go now and live a lifetime experience, probably due to COVID there is not much tours on the parks so you will have a better, very intimate tour... our tour guide, Fred has an incredible eagle sight and we could see all the things we imagined, and more.

Paul was very attentive to our needs before going especially with covid details

Paul set up a great trip for us on our first time to Africa. He was very attentive to our needs and questions before arriving especially with Covid requirements
On the safari Justin our guide was awesome. We saw the big 5, cheetahs, a lion hunt. I am not sure we missed anything. The accommodations were amazing. Maramboi tented lodge is an experience and the Melia chain of hotels were first class.
I would highly recommend Paul and his company. I thought it was a class act he came to the hotel the first night to meet us in person and go over everything anc introduce Justin

We had such a great lifetime. The tour was very interesting, we visited several national parks (Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater), we had the chance to cross lots of lions, leopards, serval cats, tones of gnous and zebras during the great migration, hippos, elephants and so on.

Justin our guide was very nice, flexible and understanding. He has an amazing knowledge of the african wildlife. We became like friends. He's able to answer to any question. Moreover he gave us the opportunity of visiting a Maasai village.
Paul the owner of the company is really professional and helping for any inquiries we made (payment, choice of the hotels ...)

The hotels proposed by the company were absolutely perfect. (Lake Manyara Serena Lodge, Four Seasons Serengeti, Oldeani Mountai Lodge, and Gran Melia). All the accomodations were comfortable and each hotel provided us meals for lunching during the game drive, snacks, drinks, meals.

We highly recommand them if you plan to book a tour in Tanzania. For sure we will go back there with them.
Thanks Paul & Justin for this incredible experience that we will never forget !

Amazing Safari Experience

Communication & Payment
The communication way easy and really straight forward. The offer we received was in a timely manner and it was the best price range per day for the type of Safari that we did - Private Safari with Lodges. Payment method was flexible which was especially important during those uncertain Covid times.
We felt safe and sound all the way! Our guide was really experienced driver, never speeded and he overcame all challenges along the road. We saw a lot of distressed cars on our way but our car and driver were strong and safe. All the lodges that we stayed put extra attention on safety and we even had on few place room escorts in the late hours after dinner. Ok I must say, you are in the wild not in the Zoo so you will hear wild animals during the night but do not worry you are safe and sound, just enjoy those extraordinary moments!
Lodges / Services & Food
The lodges we stayed were amazing! We were most impressed with Central Serengeti but all the lodges were very nice, clean and the personal was very caring, friendly and welcoming. Almost everything was taken care for us and we had to only have a good time. The food on most places was extremely tasty with a lot of variety (especially the Masai lamb meat). In most lodges the cook directly approaches the guest to ensure everyone is happy!
Guide / Game drives
Driving skills excellent, social skills even better! Our guide was very well informed, but he was able to sense the mood and he did not overwhelm us with information. He left us enjoy the ride & chill and when we were in the mood, he was giving us crash course in Swahili. The guide was all the time well informed about the road quality, the animals ahead and the eyesight of this man was just amazing! We called him "Super Vision" as he can spot a leopard from 100 km (ok I might be overstating but you get my point). We saw the “big 5” and many more

The safari with our guide James was a once in a lifetime exsperience.

The communication with Paul (tour operator) was very friendly. He made all our wishes possible. When we arrived in Arusha, we even got a phenomenal upgrade for the accommodations for free. All the accommodations were so luxury like paradise.
Our guide James was perfect. He knows everything about animals and the national parks, furthermore he‘s a very good driver and got us out of every mud hole. We had nothing Thank you very much for this unforgettable adventure!

Excellent tour in Tanzania & Zanzibar

Tanzania Roadside Expeditions did an amazing for my recent trip to Tanzania. The itinerary was customized to meet all of my needs . My tour guide, James, was extremely attentive, caring & flexible in every way. The climb up ( halfway) of Kilimanjaro was great. On the safari James made sure to show as many animals as possible.
In planning the tour, Paul, was fantastic and patient to achieve exactly what I wanted

Amazing!! Highly recomendable!

Our safari with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions was amazing! From the start until the end, everything went very smooth. It was easy to book and the safari was great (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro). The accommodations were all really nice with good food. Our guide Justin was also amazing. He was super friendly, great at spotting animals & always drove really carefully. We would definitely recommend him and Tanzania Roadside Expeditions. We went during Covid-19 and we did not regret it for a second. Tanzania is an amazing country with extremely friendly people who depend a lot on tourism. We always felt safe and really enjoyed our trip! :)
