Friendly and professional
I can't praise them enough this trip is etched in my memory for ever. We had very close encounters with lions and a cheetah which I put down to our guides excellent knowledge. Saw two Wildebeest Mara river crossings in one day, each with 20000 plus animals. It looked like the highs of one day were eclipsed by the high of the next day. When asked about the safari this is what I tell them.
The travel time was horrendous I live in the USA 19hrs going 22hrs on the return.
Jet lag was horrendous 7hrs time difference.
Extremely rough rough roads, makes our rough washboard roads seem like the interstate.
Yes it was worth it was

A friendly and knowledgeable safari company!
We had an awesome 6-day "Great Migration" tour in Tanzania and Kenya in September. Sele and Fred were amazing tour guides and extremely knowledgeable. We had a lot of fun together and really enjoyed how they would get us the best spots for animal viewing. We saw everything (big 5) we wanted to, and so much more. I highly recommend this company. Everything went very smoothly and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience.

Great service! Wonderful experience for our first safari
We had a great time with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions. The Service was great and our tour guide and driver explained a lot. We saw all big five, and were really lucky. The accomodations during the safari were great, and the tented lodge in the Serengeti was an interesting experience. We can absolutly recomend Tanzania Roadside Expeditions for a safari trip. We had a great time.

We had a 3 days tour. We went to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara. We stayed for 2 nights at Octagon lodge.
The trip was very well organised. The guides we had, James and Ezekiel, were great and always making sure we were ok and comfortable. They were also very patient - we travelled with our 2 kids (5y old and 2 y old).
The 3 parks we visited were really nice and different. James and Ezekiel provided a lot of additiona information during the trip.
The lodge was also very nice and conveniently located. The room was big and clean, the breakfast and dinner were very good. the lunch box was also good.
Before travelling we had a few email exchange with the tour operator to agree the itinerary and they were always very professional and quick in their answers. Everything went well and we would definitely recommend Tanzania Roadside!

A fabulously organised safari with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions
I wanted to choose a Tanzanian owned and run travel company for our family safari, and picked Tanzania Roadside Expeditions based on several good reviews, and their general responsiveness. I could not have been more impressed.
Paul Justine, who runs the firm, answered all my questions promptly, and was flexible in making adjustments.
My husband, two daughters (in their twenties) and I only had 1 week, and I therefore wanted it to be just safari, but recognising that my husband, in particular might need time to recover from the flight from London, we opted to spend 1 full day in Arusha, which we all appreciated, taking advantage of the Gran Melia's pool and massage. When I saw the suggested itinerary with 4 stops: Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorogoro Crater and the Serengeti, I wondered if we were doing too much, and if we should skip Ngorogoro Crater, but Paul dissuaded me, and we were all glad that we didn't. James was our guide, and he could not have done a better job. He was extremely knowledgeable, seemed able to spot things from a distance so that we would often find ourselves on the scene of some key action before others arrived. He was also a wonderful driver., appeared tireless patient and kind.
The hotels that Tanzania Roadside Expeditions picked were all very comfortable, but the ones they arranged in Lake Manyara (Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge) and in the Serengeti (Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge) were exceptional.
It was all-in-all a truly magical trip that was beautifully arranged, and for an undoubtedly luxurious safari was extremely good value for money.

Knowledgeable, friendly, great customer service.
We did a 3 day luxury safari in January 2023 with Roadside Tanzania. I can't say enough about the experience with. From the way Paul took care of all the details and was available to answer all my many questions ahead of time. His choices for accommodations and the schedule he put together for us was nothing less than fantastic. Then there is Justin! What a wonderful guide. He was knowledgeable, courteous and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him. It's 3 days driving around with your guide so it is important that they are good at their job! Just was not good, he was amazing! If I could rate my experience 6 starts, I would!!!!

Great value for our money
Our driver and guide was Ezekiel. He made our trip very enjoyable. He was a very good driver. We learned a few words in svahili, everything about masai kulture. And almost all of the african great 5 animals. We were only able to took time for two day trip but it was awsome. And the place we stayed for the night- great food and people and nice botanical garden wish we could have stayed longer.

Thanks for an unforgettable experience!
We chose a safari tour in Tanzania, made a request to different companies, but it was Paul who answered very quickly, provided all the information, took into account all our wishes, was always in touch on WhatsApp. Very well organized, the tour is well planned. Our driver-guide Idris is a real professional, we saw all the animals! He was always in touch by radio with other rangers, very quickly and accurately managed to get to the location of lions, cheetahs, leopards, rhinos and other African animals. We spent four unforgettable days on safari! We recommend to everyone! Unforgettable impressions and emotions are guaranteed!!!

Best safari tour, exceeded our expectation.
Justin knows the territory and animals. Though he said he can’t guarantee all the animals that we desired to see, but he delivered everything on our wish list. We saw so many animals and get so close to them, even very rare black rhino. If you are planning a Safari trip, you should call Paul and Justin at Tanzania Roadside Expeditions.
