Review of trip arranged by Paul Justine, Peace Hotel Arusha, Tanzania -

1 Stay at Peace Hotel was really good.

2 First day trip to Arusha National Park was exceptional. Viewing of wild life in Tanzania was great. Elephants, Giraffe, Baboons, Gazelle, Impala, Lions and many other were seen. The guides were very qualified and helpful in explaining the animals habits, the countries different tribe and their development.

3 The second day trip to Kilimanjaro National Park was also very enjoyable. The guides explained and showed how the different tribes like Chaga and Maasai lived. Wild life viewing was also good.

I could be willing to recommend travel through this group

Extremely well behaved and friendly staff. Took care of everyone. Took special care to ensure we watch the animals and the birds. Carefully explained the nature of each habitat. The team was well versed with the place, and it's geography and history.

Arusha National Park and Mt. Kilimanjaro area trip

They have arranged both the trips as per our convenience. They provided experienced and knowledgable guides and driver that made our trip very enjoyable. The guides were proficient in English and they made the trip more interesting explaining local history. I intend to recommend them to my friends.

Exclusive safari in Lake Manjara National park

I was lucky to have an exclusive safari arranged for me in Lake Manjara National Park in january 2015. The safari met all my expectations and the event organisor was extremely service minded and friendly. I have no hesitations recommending them as safari operators.

Young company that truly cares about providing a good experience

The young men that own this company work hard to treat clients to the very best experience available in Tanzania! Personal care, gracious accomodations, at the best price they can offer. We felt special and glad we were able to book with them.

Personal service and excellent safari - go for it!

Went on safari in early January and was very satisfied with the arrangements. We travelled as a family, my husband and four children, and I had booked everything from home. We arrived to Arusha after five days at Zanzibar and we were picked up by Paul, the owner of Tanzania Roadside Expedition. He took us to our hotel and then stayed with us in the afternoon, taking us to a good lunch place and showing us where to shop. After that we had a meeting with our guide James to discuss the safari and possible changes to the safari to be able to catch sight of as many animals as possible. Later in the evening, Paul and James took us to a great local BBQ place. It was great and so nice of them to set aside all this time and effort to make us feel welcome to Arusha. Early next morning we set off on our safari with James. James was very knowledgable and a truly good guy to have around and with interesting views on Tanzania and all that this country has to offer. Our safari was pretty compact - only three days - but still we managed to see so much!! It was just awesome! We even saw a rhino twice in Ngorongoro. The only set back was that the first days jeep ride was a bit too long (from Arusha to Ndute area). My advice is that if you want to go all the way to Ndute or Serengeti you should have at the very least four days. My personal favorite was however Tarangire park and all the elephants (we did Ndute, Ngorongoro and Tarangire in 3 days). During the booking procedure (I started the booking 10 months before take off) I had extensive email conversations with Paul, who always was very prompt in replying and explaining to me. Conclusively, I truly recommend Tanzania Roadside Expeditions. Just go - you will not regret it!

incredible experience for Safaris and Zanzibar holiday!!!

me and my friends a group of 6 peoples in January, we booked Serengeti safaris and beach holiday in Zanzibar. The Roadside services are really amazing!! since the starting point of our planning all arrangements were quite excellent. Safaris Driver Guide James was really helpful and provide good explanation about animals and plants. we had good time with Massai cultural tour. Our safaris were not too expensive compare with other companies that we sent request before so we decided to visit stone town and had lovely relax in Nungwi beach Zanzibar island. Highly recommended Roadside Tanzania!!.

Great experience

I spent a lot of time learning about the parks and reading reviews. What I liked about Tanzania Roadside was Paul's flexibility when planning my trip. 7/6 nights. I switched on of the accommodations and added a 3rd night to Sarrenngeti at the upscale kuba kuba.
First off all accommodations were nice, with great service and generally felt the staff was amazing. Are guide had 5 years working with same company and shared knowledge some and looked up answers to our questions if required from his reference books. He was easy with a smile and never rattled even when he had to change the tire for 2nd time. He also stopped so we could gift kids soccer balls we brought and a unscheduled stop at local school to gift supplies.
We found are own way to Arusha and stayed at a simple hotel for night. Paul and Ezekiel arrived as scheduled for pick up. We went over trip and were on our way. 1st stop Tarangire.
Next day lake Manyara by back way. Then 2 nights at Kati kati Sarrenngeti and a 3rd in Kuba Kuba last night at Rhino camp that was cozy in its own way. Last day we did Ngorongoro crater before heading back to Arush last day.
I think we got good bang for our bucks and were able to see every thing including big five. Money transfer was easy. This company is all local people, not a international business. I gave it 4.5 stars

Small company with a very dedicated owner

Paul, the owner of the company, really puts a LOT of effort into planning your safari and make the best out of your stay. The safari itself was amazing and the accommodations fully met/exceeded our expectations. Our driver was very knowledgable, however, he made it very clear that he would rather be with his family (it was around Christmas time). We of course understand this but this put us in a very uncomfortable situation. He only answered our questions but did not tell us a lot by himself. We also booked a beach vacation on Zanzibar with Tanzania Roadside Expedition after our safari. This part we wouldn't book again with them as we had a very unpleasant experience in the hotel booked for us (but Paul was again VERY helpful).

All in all we absolutely loved our experience and think it is very rare that someone puts as much effort into client servicing as Paul does. It was not "perfect" due to some things as listed below but your value for money is great and you sure will have a great vacation if you book with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions.
