Outstanding service and attention to detail.
This was the most amazing experience,transfers and puck ups were very smooth and timely,
Wonderful scenery and the animals in thier natural habitat is a sight to behold!
Accommodation was beautiful with the most friendly,helpful staff.
Highlight for me was the serengeti game drive and the Ngorangora crater, simply no words to describe the beauty.
And...I seen the big five!

Tanzania Roadside Expeditions provides a safari experience that is both adventurous and energizing
We visited Tanzania on our honeymoon in August of 2023. It was high tourist season, but that did not stop Tanzania Roadside Expeditions from showing us a great time. We split our trip in half, spent half of it on a safari in Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro, and then spent the other half in Zanzibar. It was a truly once in a lifetime experience. Paul Justine took care of all of the logistics for us, even allowing us to add some customizations to our trip, and made sure that we knew of the entire plan as well as what to bring in regards to packing far in advance of us traveling to TZ. He also had staff that took great care of us and were super friendly in both Arusha and in Zanzibar. In addition, our driver, George, was fantastic - getting us close to the animals, but also ensuring we were safe. We also learned so much about Tanzania as a country from him, as well as so much about the animals. We also saw the ENTIRE African Big 5 on our trip - and really enjoyed the safari days. Would absolutely recommend taking another trip to TZ or Kenya and using this company - they will make sure you are well taken care of!

I cannot speak more highly about this Expedition. I went to a tour spanning 3 locations Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar over 9 days.
I honestly had everything covered. Paul is an excellent manager who was available 24/7 from a year prior to the safari (when we first booked it) until the last day as we flew back.
The team was OUTSTANDING we felt safe, and taken care of at all times and all accomodations were unbelievably well priced
Thank you so Much
I would recommend our game drivers who were exceptional

EVERYTHING was Perfect, Well Organized, Professional and simply AMAZING!
Do not hesitate to book with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions. The service and value were excellent. We planned a private 8-day Luxury Safari/Zanzibar beach holiday for 4 and EVERYTHING was perfect. They are so organized and have everything down to a science. Our Safari guide Justin was simply the best with an eye for spotting the "BIG CATS" He made our safari memorable and was so much fun to safari with. We saw everything including the Big 5! OMG the Cheetahs! From the beginning Paul was a great communicator answering all our questions (and we had a lot) while planning our adventure. He was quick to respond and was accommodating making changes to our itinerary, especially when the airline moves your flights. The people of Tanzania were so friendly and so accommodating. We felt safe the whole time, never a worry or concern. You won't be sorry booking with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions!

We were assisted by Paul to plan and help make all the arrangements including hotels. Our safari guide Idris was very professional and amazing as well. We saw the big five and a lot more. My kids really enjoyed the holiday.

Experience because of experience
Fantastic pre safari communication from Paul the CEO. He also came to meet us in Arusha at the end and it was great to hear and see how a local entrepreneur is challenging the more capitalised big operators.
The safari was brilliant - we have been to SA Malawi Bots Zim Zak Moz on safari and Walter our guide was as knowledgeable and experienced as anyone we’d met before. He was ex A&K and been guiding for over 20 years. Walter took us on the less chaotic paths away from the big crowds in both the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. This meant we had better sightings with fewer vehicles and once watched a cheetah mother with her five cubs on our own. He also managed to get us a sighting of the illusive Black Rhino!!! I would heartily recommend using this firm as they know the local ground and will show you a more authentic Tanzania. Some of the other firms like Tanzania Specialist and Savannah Explorers don’t try to find any sightings themselves rather they drive as fast as they can to find the next group of jeeps to find out what they are looking at resulting in overcrowding and noisy and busy sightings and their guides are clearly less experienced and understanding of being part of nature as opposed to interfering with it. If you want to see Tanzania I’d always use Tanzania Roadside Expeditions.

Excellent communications, expert guide, always gave full confidence and delivered.
We selected Roadside based on its reviews and the flexibility of it's itineraries. We did our searching and booking from the UK, as we wanted to engage with a local business directly rather tan through an international hotel or tour operator. Everything went very smoothly.
In the end we did a four day / three night trip taking in Tarangire National Park, Serengeti and NgoroNgoro crater. Really pleased we did as each offer something very different in terms of landscape and animal life. Roadside organised all of our transfers and flights (we started and ended at two different places on Zanzibar), and also stored luggage for us that we didn't need for the safari.
Our guide was excellent (Ibrahim) an expert not just on the wildlife and landscapes, but the country, traditions, politics and other areas too. We learned loads about Tanzania. He was always upbeat and lively and became part of our family group for the duration of the tour.
Overnight stays were authentic and the staff in each place very welcoming and friendly. Food plentiful and decent and comfortable accommodations.
Our safaris didn't disappoint, we clocked up well over 50 distinct different animals and birds as we toured around, including all the main ones you'd expect.
All in all we give Roadside 10/10 from booking enquiries to dropping off for our flight to leave.

Top notch organisation
I contacted Zephania in April and got a quick reply the next day. The itinerary was very detailed, we loved the choice of accommodation so we decided to travel with Tanzania Roadside expeditions.
In the next few months before our actual travel, Zephania got in touch regularly to give me some much needed nudges to get things going on my side.
Three weeks before our actual travel date, we were sent some much needed guidance on what to pack and a do/don’t list.
Communication was smooth, responsive which was big plus for us as first time travellers to Africa.
Regarding the trip itself, the experience was breathtaking. One of the reasons why we travelled with an agency was to have some sort of chaperone during our trip and the guides who accompanied us during our stay in Kenya (Peter) and Tanzania (Ezekiel Masai) were great. They were both very kind, patient, gave us plenty of explanations on various topics. They were also great with our young children. They went great lengths to allow us to see as many animals as possible and make our stay in the parks memorable. We had a wonderful time with them. The hotels chosen were perfect in terms of localisation and comfort.
Thanks to the team at Tanzania Roadside we had a great time in Africa. It was worth every penny for the amazing service we received from the first contact to the airport drop off (and even after!).
I would 100% recommend to travel with them and hope that we’ll have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Provided the most sensational adventure and experience of a lifetime!
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to ROADSIDE TANZANIA EXPEDITIONS. They helped make the Tanzania Safari/Zanzibar life-long dream into the perfect reality. Everything was exceptional and very well planned - from the time we arrived until the time we flew home. Nothing to think or worry about. Paul, the Managing Director was extremely responsive and professional despite the lengthy time change prior to our arrival. The accommodations, food and everything was exceptional on our tour. Special thanks to Ezekiel our Safari Tour Guide and new found friend who was magnificent. He worked diligently to ensure we saw as much wildlife as possible and learn about what truly makes Tanzania and its amazingly friendly people so special. I normally don’t write reviews but this one is beyond well deserved. I cannot recommend ROADSIDE TANZANIA EXPEDITIONS enough. Hakuna Matata!
