Best Three Days Ever!

We had a group of 10 (Canadians and Tanzanians) who used TRE for a 3-day safari. They picked us up at our hostel in Arusha, and took us to Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara.

Our two drivers; Ezekiel and Idris were amazing! They were able to pick out all the big animals on the safari and made sure we were able to see everything. They were also super informative and were able to tell us about the area, history, people, culture and so much more.

A great experience, and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for guides!

Great experience

The whole experience with Roadside Expeditions was unforgettable. Starting from the very initial interactions with Paul, when he suggested few options for our safari and gave us a choice depending on our budget, till the very last moment of our trip. Definitely go with James (our guide) - he was the best. He has a great eye for spotting animals and we were lucky to see all Big Five, including a rhino (with a rhino-baby) and James was the first one to spot them in the crater that day, just few minutes before we had to leave. The car was equipped with the radio, which is very helpful for guides to share information and not to miss important things.
Since it was also our honeymoon & my husband’s birthday - James and Paul arranged some nice surprises for us and my husband on his birthday! Truly amazing experience - amazing lodges, great roadside adventures!

Top service, guide with long experience and knowledge. The safari met all our expectations. Super!

We are very satisfied with everything, they tailored our Safari according to our preferences (family with 2 kids, age 9 and 12), communication was very smooth and service excellent. Our driver James had so much knowledge about the wildlife and the parks we visited (Serengeti and Ngorongoro) and he was very responsive to our needs and wishes.
The safari met all our expectations and we warmly recommend Tanzania Roadside Expeditions to anyone planning for a Safari in Tanzania. Thank you so much, Paul and James!

All good in Kilimanjaro!! Even the rates!!

I don't usually write this kind of reviews, but Paul told us and he was so kind, I could not say no.
What to add when everything is perfect? Our questions were fast answered, they were waiting when we arrived at the airport, ther was no hidden charge, the guide was very nice... also the tents, the food...
I hope to come back soon!
Asante sana

Great Guide and nature Safari experience

Pickup ontime - comfortable and reliable car + driver - park knowledge of the guide. There was nothing to complain about.

Excellent Tour! Safe and Efficient!

I could see so many precious scenes such as lions eating a wildebeest and cheetahs eating an antelope. My family and friends don't believe that I took those pictures, but I really took them! :D I really enjoyed the tour of Tanzania Roadside Expeditions.
Before I went to Tanzania, I had sent a lot of emails to Paul to ask about the itinerary, hotel and the price. He patiently answered them and arranged the itinerary for me. Also he came to pick me up at the airport on the first day, and I felt relieved to see him because I traveled alone and I concerned about the safety of Arusha. During the tour I felt no danger.
James, the driver, knew where to find animals and I could see many precious scenes as I wrote above. Also his driving skill was nice. He carefully drove not to shake the car, and when we found animals, he always took the best position to observe them. Thanks to him I took so many nice pictures. Also he took me to the local market in Arusha on the last day and he explained to me the local lives in Arusha. Those were so interesting, too! :)
Also, the members of the company were so friendly and they took me to a local restaurant on the first day and final day. I really felt at home and forgot that I was traveling alone. :)
Thank you very much for all of the staffs of Tanzania Roadside Expedition! I can't believe I experienced such precious moments!
If I could go Tanzania again, I must choose same company! ;)

Roadside expeditions showned us Tanzanian parks in the best expression , exceeding our expectations

Awesome experience, Everything went well ,better as expected , both tour guides (James and Mari) were always available and with the best predisposition to attend our doubts. The passion showed in their jobs make as have a better knowledge of Tanzanian animals , culture and civilization.

A very special holiday, made to feel even more special by Roadside's care and consideration

Booking a safari for the whole family is a considerable investment and you want to be sure that it will all be worth it. Initially we looked for an agency based at home (Holland), but after continual issues, we were lucky enough to come across Tanzania Roadside Expeditions. Paul's knowledge and attention to detail meant that any hiccups that cropped up were smoothed away with barely any impact on us. He organised the perfect itinerary, readily tweaking it if we had any special wishes or requirements.
Once on safari, we were lucky enough to have James as our guide/driver. When you're thrown together with a stranger for over a week, it could be a difficult situation, but James readily made us feel very welcome. As a guide, he had an exceptional breadth of knowledge and was readily able to answer all our questions (and with 3 kids with us, there were lots of questions!). As a driver, he was also fantastic; we felt very safe with him, despite driving conditions that were often "challenging", to say the least. And as a person, James is a truly nice guy to spend time with, and we hope to meet him again on our next visit.
All in all, we were truly fortunate to find Tanzania Roadside to organise our holiday. I would heartily recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Great trip with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions!

We have no reservations in recommending Tanzania Roadside Expeditions (TRE). Paul put together a safari itinerary based on our schedules and flight times, and the mix of national parks (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Arusha) reflected the wide range of ecosystems that Tanzania has. The actual itinerary matched what was customised/described to us over email communications.

Our guide, Ole, is very knowledgeable about wildlife, and is passionate about conservation. He was responsible in the way he conducted the safari (e.g. not feeding wild animals, or going off-road from designated driveways in the national parks – which we saw some other groups do), and we were taken good care of over the six days that we were with him. We got to see fascinating wildlife at a close distance (including lions, elephants, hippos etc.) and also learnt a lot about Tanzanian history and culture from Ole.

The choice of lodges / tented camps was excellent, and we enjoyed our stays in locations with very friendly and professional staff. This was a memorable trip for us and as first-time safari travelers, we are glad that we went with TRE.
