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!

Wonderful scenery and the animals in thier natural habitat is a sight to behold!
Accommodation was beautiful with the most friendly,helpful staff.

Amazing 3 day safari trip

Had the most amazing safari trip.
Paul was incredible at every point of organising our trip and was always quick to respond and easy to communicate with.

All aspects of the trip went smoothly and both of our safari guides were very knowledgeable and made the trip extra special.

We were very lucky to see the big 5 within 2 days and also a host of other animals.

We wish we had chosen to do the longer safari and gone to the Serengeti as well. We will absolutely be back to visit the Serengeti in the future with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions.

Thanks so much to Paul, Ezekiel and Justin for everything!

The best tour operator in Tanzania

My husband and I went to Tanzania in June 2023 with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions and this trip was the best trip we have ever taken in our entire lives. We visited so many national parks and saw more wildlife than I thought we would see. Our tour guide, Ali, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. Please if you are looking for a tour guide operator, look no further. They will ensure you have the best trip of your life. Thank you!!

A Dream Come True

I have dreamt of going on an African Safari since I was a teenager. My experience with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions fulfilled my dream and expectations! My husband was not as excited to go as I was, but after experiencing the 6 nights and 7 days in Tanzania, he thought it was Amazing, too!

Communicating with Paul to select tour options was informative, timely, and easy. We highly recommend our driver/tour guide Ezekiel! He is a good driver (which you need on the Safari roads) plus has a positive and easy going attitude. (We talked to other people on Safari with other companies and they were not happy with their guides. They actually asked Ezekiel for his card.)

Our tour included 1 night in Arusha, 1 night at Elewana Tarangire Treetops Lodge, 2 nights at Four Seasons Safari Lodge, and 2 nights at Neptune Ngorongoro Lodge. Highly recommend all the lodges. We went late June. The weather was perfect. Not too hot.

We saw so many animals: families of elephants, cheetah mom playing with her 3 cubs, cheetah hunt a gazelle in seconds, 4 lionesses hunting a warthog (the warthog got away!), leopard hiding in a tree, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, variety of antelopes, black rhinoceros, hippos, crocodiles, baboons & more. Amazing terrains: desert, rainforest, crater, and lake. We loved the hot air balloon ride & bush breakfast (it's expensive, but worth it, a once-in-a-lifetime experience).

I hope to return to Tanzania to have my son experience this amazing adventure. He couldn't get off work, but hopefully we will return and we will definitely work with Ezekiel & Paul again!

Things I had wondered: open jeep versus closed jeep with open canopy. There is a lot of dust & we drove from each lodge. I'm happy we had the closed jeep with canopy. The dust was probably half as bad in a closed jeep than in an open jeep & we had the option to stand which we did a lot of the time. We never felt like we missed out experiencing the animals in the closed jeep. You can open the side windows and the lions walk right beneath/beside us.

(PS I wanted to use a local tour group so the money stayed in Tanzania. We were very worried about being scammed. We were so relieved everything was legitimate and then awesome on top of that. I told them to use us as a reference, if people were worried like we were)

Hi to Ezekiel & Paul! I sure hope we get to come again! Take care, Vickie & Bill :-)

All was excellent, perfectly organised from the planning to the tour itself. Super reccomended

Our experience was perfect! Communication was excellent since the exploratory questions prior to the booking, to the payment and the last communication Upon arrival.
The tour was tailored on our needs and will, and it went extremely well.
Paul was super kind in helping us with the organisation and Ezekiel (our guide) is simply amazing, very knowledgeable, kind, and ready to answer our questions. Also Elliot the Chef Is a nice guy and a great Cook!
We saw the big five and much, much more!

Exceptional Safari team - An unforgettable adventure!

We recently had the pleasure of embarking on an amazing 2 weeks of East Africa wildlife Safari and Zanzibar beach holiday with TRE!

3 days Maasai Mara in Kenya, 2 days at North Serengeti, 2 days Central Serengeti and 1 day Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania and finally in Zanzibar beach!

Where I come from, there are very few local travel agents that organise Safari trips to East Africa. Moreover, it is our desire to find a local travel agent that has deep understanding of the local wildlife ecosystem and community. It is our belief that when we visit a country, we aim not to contribute to exploitation of animals but rather supporting the protection and conservation of them and contributes to the local community. Planning for this trip had took months of researching to find and engage a suitable travel agent and courage to trust one to transfer large sum of money for the trip! Fortunately, we found TRE and Paul has made this experience an extremely easy and pleasant one. From asking tons of questions on the itineraries to making several changes to the itinerary, Paul always answer our queries promptly and provide us with different options to suit our travel needs which were very helpful and much appreciated.

Our first ever wildlife Safari experience was made extraordinary by Paul’s dedicated team of Safari guides/drivers. Their commitment to provide authentic hospitality and an exceptional experience (and sometimes going above and beyond) shone throughout every game drive.

Raphael our Maasai Mara guide not only have sharp eyes but he has the great ability to be in the right place at the right time - a crucial ability necessary to see wildlife successfully. He has been a great safari driver throughout our trip, giving us close quarter view of the big five! We consider ourselves lucky to see all of them as leopards and rhinos are very elusive. Thanks to Raphael! He is also very amicable and have immense knowledge and experience of the place.

Justin was our guide in Serengeti. He was great too and would give the best so that we can view as many wildlife as possible. He was at the right place often and because of him we were able to see a pride of lions sleeping under a tree! We were also able to see leopards several times in the Serengeti plains.

We left Africa with the reminder of how raw beauty of the natural world looks and feels like. We are just back from this amazing trip and are already having withdrawal symptoms… We have fell in love with Africa.. and can’t wait to return one day once more for that magic, with Tanzania Road Expeditions of course!

Amazing Service and Unforgettable Experience! They took care of every detail. A lifetime trip!

We had an unforgettable experience and superb service with Tanzania Roadside Expeditions around Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti!
They took care of us in every sense of the word. The places in which we stayed were amazing and the jeep was always confortable and clean. Our guide was not only a good professional but a great person too! They made us enjoyed every step of the way looking all kind of animals: leons families, elephants, zebras, thomsons gazelles, hypoos, buffalos, wildebest, hienas, leopards, cheetahs and all the other animals that live here. We enjoyed them in their every day family behavior. Simple Amazing! Thanks for ever!

Great value, great service, would highly recommend.

Did a 3 day safari to the Serengeti to break up our beach holiday in Zanzibar. Paul and his team organised everything without issues. I can highly recommend it. Our guide Ezekiel was brilliant also. Very competitive price compared to other tour operators. Five stars!
