Very thorough planning with Paulo. We felt safe and secure in all situations. will use him again.
5/5

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Paulo was very thorough with his communications with us, and our trip was planned to our exact specifications.
We were met at the airport and taken to our hotel for a rest before doing some shopping around town. We wanted to buy some local art and crafts before heading out for our Safari, and we bought some wonderful glass, beadworks, and paintings, along with woven fabric goods.

We also went to the local market and walked around the many vendors. We bought a huge watermelon to cut up and eat when we stopped at a resting area to rest and enjoy the landscape.

We saw all the big 5 animals and have wonderful photos up close of the animals and colorful birds.

We also stopped to speak with local Masai farmers herding their goats and cows across the land. Our driver/guide told us lots about the people and customs and was always happy and helpful. We asked to stop here and there for photos and could stay as long as we wanted before moving in, which was great for me being an avid photographer.

Paulo kept in touch with us during the Safari to make sure we were happy and to see if there was anything more he could do for us. We would definitely use him again.

Professional and experienced safari guiding
5/5

Without much prior information except for some email exchanges with Paul, we decided to book our 6-days safari tour with Tanzania Roadside expeditions because of their flexibility to accommodate our exact wishes (we are a family of four with two teenage sons and hence different interests and wishes...) and at a reasonable price. The tour company choice turned out to be a lucky strike. Being driven and guided around for six days by James was a pure pleasure. Our trip included the national parks of Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Manyara with one night in KatiKati tent camp in Serengeti. We saw all animals one can wish for including two leopards, three cheetahs and one serval cat. We also made a day tour to Lake Eyasi where we visited the Hazebe tribe -which we would really recommend as it is an extraordinary experience!
Our driver and guide James turned out to be an extremely dedicated and experienced tour guide and a very pleasant person to travel with. If requested, he will share a wealth of knowledge about Tanzanian nature and society and our journey to Tanzania would not have been at all as memorable had we not met and gotten to know James.
Being very pleased with the six-days safari, we decided to let Tanzania Roadside Expeditions also arrange guided tours in Zanzibar for us and one day of trekking on Kilimanjaro. These arrangements also worked out very well. We would without hesitation recommend James and Tanzania Roadside Expeditions to anyone looking for a memorable visit to Tanzania!

Fantastic Safari service
5/5

Some friends and I wanted to do a safari, but we had very limited time and had specific destinations in our bucket list. Tanzania Roadside Expeditions was the ONLY tour company that was able to cater to our needs, AND had very reasonable prices. They went out of their way to make things happen the way we preferred! Tour guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. We absolutely loved every minute of the tour and the experiences we got because of them. I would most definitely recommend Tanzania Roadside Expeditions for their professionalism and expertise!

Review of trip arranged by Paul Justine, Peace Hotel Arusha, Tanzania - roadsidetanzania.com
5/5

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

Experience
5/5

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
5/5

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.

Young company that truly cares about providing a good experience
5/5

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!
5/5

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!
