Tanzania Roadside Expeditions

Incredible experience from start to finish! Tanzania Roadside Expeditions was incredible helpful and accommodating planning and organizing our safari. Our guide Ezekiel Senkoro picked us up at our hotel and was extremely informative, kind, considerate, knowledgable, entertaining, and professional throughout our trip. Ezekiel was very accommodating and tailored each day to our wishes whether it be staying out on a game drive longer or coming back into the lodges early for a little rest. We were very blessed to have seen the Big Five on our safari due in large part to Ezekiel being incredible at spotting animals out on the drives and being extremely knowledgable of the parks. All of the accommodations were extremely nice and fit well to the description of a luxury safari. We could not have been more impressed with both Tanzania Roadside Expeditions or Ezekiel and highly recommend both! We cannot wait to go back on safari with them!

Tanzania Roadside Expeditions was so helpful, communicative, and overall a great operator to use!

We used Tanzania Roadside Expeditions for our safari experience and they were fantastic. This was our first safari experience and I was nervous as I did not know what to expect, but this company truly took care of us and put any nerves at ease. We did a two-day safari in November, and it was a great time to go and a good length of trip for us. I was nervous going at this time of the year given it is "off-season", but it was actually perfect! The parks were not crowded at all and we still saw ALL of the Big Five animals, plus the weather ended up being great. It is the short rainy season, but this just meant that it would rain for less than 30 minutes once during the day, and we would just put the top cover onto the safari car during this time; it did not hinder the experience in the slightest. Two days was a great length for us as we did two different locations so one day we got to see Tarangire and the next we did Ngorongoro Crater; both of these places I highly recommended. We were coming from Dar es Salaam, so our package was tailored to include trips to and from the airports, our round-trip flights to the Northern Circuit and back, lodging and food, and our private tour. Paul was very communicative from the beginning and easy to contact for any and all questions that I had. As an American, we were not very used to doing a money-transfer for our payment, but it was safe and secure and went through without a hitch. Once we arrived, our guide was there to pick us up at the airport and he was so friendly and knowledgeable and we could not recommend a better tour company to use!

Great tour company, would recommend to all!

We booked a honeymoon safari with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions and had a great experience. Our guide Ezekiel was awesome, he was so knowledgeable and friendly. Made us feel taken care of the entire trip. Our stays throughout the safari were spectacular. On the first day he even brought me roses for our honeymoon. When the safari ended we had gone to Zanzibar for a week then back to Arusha, they even helped us arrange a ride to the airport though we were not on the safari anymore. Excellent service thank you for making our honeymoon experience special!

For a long time we were planning to go on a Safari. Especially since our father’s had a great love for animal’s and nature.
It was a dream for us to go on a Safari and since our father’s are no longer alive, we wanted our memory of them to continue while on this Safari.
It was a privilege to book this Safari with TANZANIA ROADSIDE EXPEDITIONS.
The owner Paul Justine was committed to us from the very beginning to the very end of the Safari.
He was always available to us when we needed questions to be answered even before the Safari started.
That is simply just dedication on his part to his clients.
The hotel’s that he booked for us during our Safari each day were amazing and it included all our meals and refreshments when we were on the road.
We were picked up at the airport and were taken for our first night at the Gran Melia Arusha. After Paul helped to check us in, we had a meeting on the details of our Safari for the next 4 days.
The next morning we got to meet our tour guide Ezekiel Elias.
First impression of Ezekiel is that he was on time and very enthusiastic. You could tell he was excited about his job and sharing his knowledge with people.
Our first destination was to the Tarangire National Park which is almost 3000 sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. The park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.
We spent our second night at the Escarpment Luxury Lodge where Ezekiel assisted us to check-in.
On our third day we headed to the
Serengeti National Park. We understand that this Park is the world’s last largest great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals. Furthermore, the area covers 14,763 square feet and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai 'Siringet', meaning endless plains. Amazing!!
We had an opportunity to meet one of the tribes called the Masai Tribe. They were very welcoming and explained to us about their daily lives.
After Ezekiel checked us in at the Serengeti Melia Lodge for our third night.
We spent half a day in Serengeti and later the next morning we went to the rim of Ngorongoro Crater.
This crater is called the eighth natural wonder of the world and is the largest intact crater in the world. For our last night Ezekiel drove us to the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge to check-in.
The next day we descend into the crater for a tour. Before heading to the Kilimanjaro International airport for our flight to Dar-es-Salaam.
Ezekiel took the initiative and stopped off and took a small video of Mount Kilimanjaro since my husband climbed up 18,000 feet when he was in the Boy Scouts. Ezekiel knew how much this meant. We were shortly now going to say bye to a close friend who we came to know over the past few days from the Safari.
The Safari that was booked for us was an amazing experience and completed with great detail.
The memories we experienced will always be cherished for the rest of our lives.
We highly recommend booking your Safari with TANZANIA ROADSIDE EXPEDITIONS. Furthermore, it was Paul Justine and Ezekiel Elias that made one of our dreams come true.
We thank you Paul and Ezekiel.

An amazing and unforgettable experience with the best guide ever

I had received Paul's contact through an acquaintance and I sent Paul a message via whatsapp. He responded very promptly. We wanted to do a 3 day safari and Paul came up with a fantastic proposal within 2h. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the airport. After a short flight, our guide Ezekiel and Paul were waiting for us with the safari truck. We were able to board right away and Ezekiel explained how the days would proceed. Ezekiel was really the best guide ever with a lot of knowledge of the area. He drove very safely and managed to take us to the most beautiful places with lots of wildlife. The mornings he was waiting for us punctually to take us to beautiful places again. We learned a lot from Ezekiel about nature and Tanzanian culture, but we also laughed hard and had special conversations with him. Thanks for all the wise lessons Ezekiel!!! All the best to you and your family and hopefully see you soon!

A safari beyond dreams! Perfectly organized, best safari guides you can imagine, very fair price

Our safari experience with Tanzania Roadside Expedition was an absolute dream come true. From the very start, their meticulous organization of transport and hotels ensured a hassle-free adventure. The pricing was incredibly reasonable, offering exceptional value for such a comprehensive experience.

The brilliance of the tour guides was a highlight of our journey. Their extensive knowledge and passion for the wildlife and the regions we explored were evident. They didn't just guide us; they educated us about the countries, the people, and their cultures, adding depth to our adventure. Their instinct for spotting wildlife was uncanny, leading us to breathtaking encounters with the 'Big Five' and much more.

The range of accommodations was another aspect that made our safari unique. Each lodge and camp had its distinct charm, ensuring that every stay was a memorable part of our journey. From the luxurious comforts to the rustic elegance, each place added a special flavor to our experience.

The wildlife encounters throughout our safari were nothing short of spectacular. The balloon safari over the Serengeti was a standout experience, offering us a bird's-eye view of the vast, sprawling savanna. It was a moment of pure magic that we'll never forget.

We were also impressed with the level of service provided by the tour operator. Even before booking, they were incredibly supportive, accommodating our wishes and needs with kindness and professionalism. This level of attention continued throughout our safari.

The itinerary was perfectly tailored to our interests. Starting in Nairobi and the Masai Mara, we were thrilled by the great wildebeest migration. Moving to the northern Serengeti, we witnessed the dramatic river crossings. In the central Serengeti, the abundance of wildlife, especially the big cats, was a sight to behold. Our journey through the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park, before concluding in Arusha, was filled with awe-inspiring landscapes and wildlife encounters.

In summary, this safari with Tanzania Roadside Expedition was more than just a trip; it was the best experience of our lifetime. The combination of exceptional guides, diverse accommodations, spectacular wildlife, and outstanding service made this a journey we will always cherish. We wholeheartedly recommend Tanzania Roadside Expedition to anyone seeking an unforgettable African adventure.
