The best! Hands down.

Look no further! This is the safari tour package you NEED to book. I had absolutely no idea what to expect; I have traveled quite a bit throughout Europe and US however was not quite sure what to expect traveling to Tanzania. Whatever expectations I had were BLOWN AWAY! From the start, Paul was receptive, informative, fair and quick to respond. Any/all questions were quickly eased by Paul who made this entire transaction (scheduling, payment, pick-up, drop-off, etc) as simple as it could get. To make things exceptionally more comforting, Paul was just as receptive when I arrived as he was simply providing quotes. Moving on to the guide (very important as they will be with you 24/7 on the trip; driving, eating and sleeping at the same lodges with you). Our guide was Ezekiel, a 29 year old self described conservationist who couldn't be any more passionate about being a guide. Ezekiel happily answered my relentless bombardment of questions and did so with a big smile every time! We really clicked on the trip and enjoyed spending every moment with Ezekiel! This is the tour guide to use; I couldn't be any happier with our experience and would recommend them to anyone, of all ages. What an experience! Special recognition to both Paul and Ezekiel!!

Beach to bush amazing experience

We are very satisfied with the service provided by Tanzania Roadside Expedition.
Paul, the owner of the company help us to put our itinerary to our satisfaction.
He was always in contact with us answering our questions promptly and giving us all information we needed. He came to meet us on our arrival in Arusha and introduce James, our safari driver and guide. We were so happy with James’s service, he was very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver. He always tried to show us as many animals as possibly and to tell us all about their habits. We spent wonderful 8 days on safari with James.

Perfect Honeymoon

We booked a safari with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions for our honeymoon and it was amazing. After splashing out on the wedding, price was a factor for us and booking through Paul was a significantly better price than going through British tour operators! Paul (the owner) was incredibly responsive to our questions and booked us into the most stunning luxury lodges. Our driver Eddie was also amazing - he was so knowledgable about all the parks and animals and was incredibly patient in stopping or moving so we could get good pictures. We saw all of the big 5 (even the rhino!) all food and water was included every day and was all really tasty. The Tanzanian people were so welcoming. I can’t wait to go back one day and we would definitely be booking with Tanzania Roadside again.

Great family safari

Our family with 9 and 12 year old kids had a great 4-days Safari. Our guide John took good care of us and found lot of animals, including some rarity . We were positively surprised the quality of lodges and other arrangements, even if Tanzanian Roadside Expeditions were cheaper than most of other companies.

Amazing Safari with Wonderful People...Book with Tanzania Roadside!

Booking a safari is scary! Paul responded to us quickly and communicated with us about our requests and planned out our trip even better then we could have. Very detailed itinerary was emailed to us for our approval and everything was handled by Paul. Doing a bank transfer is crazy scary but this company is very trustworthy and reliable. We had an amazing time, our guide Philemon was so great. He was patient, funny and protective of us throughout our safari. We ate dinner with him and talked about life and safari and it was so nice to meet such a great person on the other side of the world, we are still in touch with him even after the trip. Never once did we feel unsafe in Africa - in fact we were sad when it was time to head to Zanzibar at the end of safari - we didn't want to leave Philemon. Except for the black Rhino we saw the big five and it was unbelievable. Elephants right next to the truck, the cheetah jumped on our hood and the lioness scratched her nails on our tire! Zanzibar was beautiful we stayed at Warere resort, small place but great service, wonderful people and accommodations. We specifically wanted a small resort without crowds and that's exactly what we got. Be sure to visit Stone Town and Prison Island to see the tortoises they are so sweet and love attention. While relaxing in Zanzibar at Nungwi Beach we swam with sea turtles and all I can say is it is unbelievable. All the locals are so friendly and helpful, we live in Tennessee and our state is one of the friendliest but the people of Tanzania are so wonderful. This safari was a trip of a lifetime and it did not disappoint, all due to Paul and his employees making this trip unforgettable for us. Book with Tanzania Roadside you will not be disappointed!

Outstanding service, AMAZING trip!

We've just returned from a 11-day trip to Tanzania, arranged by Tanzania Roadside Expeditions and I'm still dreaming about it! Paul was so informative and helpful as we were putting together the itinerary. He responded to every question (and there were many!) almost immediately. Our tour guide, Walter, was amazing! He told us everything! About the culture, the people, how to speak Swahili -- we learned so much from him. And his knowledge about the animals and parks we visited was exceptional! The accommodations were lovely - we really felt like we were on safari, sleeping with the animals (but safe). I would definitely recommend you use Paul. You won't be disappointed!

Best experience with tanzania roadside expeditions

I booked a 6 Day safari luxury tour for me and my friend. first i had a lot of questions and i could ask through WhatsApp and Paul gave me all the exact informations, very good service. At our Arrival the driver was getting us at the Airport and bring us to the Hotel where Paul was already waiting for us. he explained day by day what we will see at the safari.
The next day , our safari guide James picked us up to start the safari tour. He is very friendly and knows everything about the animals,wildlife,safari & more. i recommend tanzania roadside expeditions because it was a perfect safari tour , the best service i ever saw with a safari. thank you very much for this Special experience. Kind regards Delaine & Milena

An amazing experience from start to finish

My friend and I booked a 5 day safari with Roadside expeditions to see Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorogoro. Paul was very helpful when we were booking the Safari and answered all our questions. The Safari was pretty much exactly how he described it. The only surprise was how close the wildlife would get to our vehicle. The 1st day in Tarangire we parked to watch a group of elephants grazing and they ended up walking so close to us we could hear them eating. James our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

When I go back I won’t hesitate to book another Safari with Roadside expeditions.

Tanzania Safari & Zanzibar - Organization of itinerary by Paul & Safari guide James both incredible!

Tanzania Roadside Expeditions Service is amazing!
Communications from first contact, making travel arrangements - ongoing during the vacation, as well as after our trip - were prompt and accommodating. Drivers organized by Paul were always on time and very friendly. Paul customized our African experience to suit our needs exactly as requested.
James, our Safari driver is the best in the business. He located and identified every species that we wanted to see and much, much more. His kind, thoughtful, respectful mannerism endeared us immensely. He always patiently waited while we photographed the wildlife that we saw, no matter how long it took to get the desired photo. He is a true professional.
We cannot express enough how much these 2 gentlemen went above and beyond our expectations to make our safari tour a cherished life-time memory.
If you wish to experience a memorable African safari, we strongly recommend that you book with this company.

Dream-Trip with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions

We had a wonderful trip to Tarangire National Park, the Serengeti, and the Ngorongoro Crater. Paul is a very competent organizer and always responded promptly during the planning phase and when we had questions. The joy of meeting each other was great when we were picked up at the airport. Justine, our safari guide, my husband, and I got along very well. Justine was very attentive and enthusiastic, ensuring that we had a great time and could see the Big Five. The mid-range lodges chosen by Paul were perfect for us. We thank you very much and can wholeheartedly recommend Tanzania Roadside Expedition.
