Highly responsive to pretrip questions and very accommodating
We had a wonderful tour with Paul Justine, and his excellent guide, Justin. We spent six days on safari and visited three of the national parks. We were able to see the wildebeest great migration in the western Serengeti (not always guaranteed!), as well as many lion prides, leopards, and even a cheetah having his lunch, so to speak. Plus many other amazing species. There were just two of us, so it meant less negotiating with others as far as how days were spent. Probably the best way to do it. This time of year (early June) was also good, because the larger summer crowds had not yet sit in, but the dry season was already underway. The lodges didn’t feel crowded. Our driver / guide was very accommodating throughout our trip, and clearly had a wealth of knowledge about the wildlife and their behavior patterns. We would recommend this to safari tour company wholeheartedly.

This was our first (5-day) Safari and it was truly magical. Paul, the owner of Roadside, was extremely responsive in the time leading up to our trip, and James, our tour guide, very knowledgable, without being imposing. He was able to answer any question we had about the animals, nature or the country and provided extremely interesting background information about Tanzania and its people that you cannot find in a guide book. At the same time, he left us our space to just soak up the experience without constant "entertainment". For us, the perfect balance. Also the itinerary and lodges were ideal. In sum, there is nothing we would have done differently - a perfect first safari really.

Well organized, smooth - trip of a lifetime
Fantastic safari from start to finish!! Zephania was a breeze to plan the safari with, and gave us advice, was very accommodating, and put together a great itinerary that was well paced and with great selections on the accommodations. For any questions/last minute changes, Zephania was available to help us out and resolve our question/challenge immediately.
We had a fantastic safari - 5 nights - 2 in the Mara, 2 in Serengeti, 1 in Ngorongoro & did a walking hike through a rain forest on the last day. We really enjoyed going to the different locations and seeing the variations in flora/fauna from place to place. Trip of a lifetime!
On a safari, like this, the most important thing that will determine your happiness on a trip is your guide. You're spending 8+ hours a day with that person, having meals with them, etc. Ezekiel could not have been better! He was super knowledgeable, very kind /friendly, well spoken & super easy to understand, and flexible to our schedule & energy levels at the time. It wouldn't have been the same without him. We highly recommend Ezekiel, Roadside Tanzania, and when we go back we're going to be sure to spend our safari with Ezekiel!

One of the best trip I have ever been in my life!
I decided to travel to do a Safari last minute , I requested several offers from different companies. However Paul was always very quick to answer my questions, and there was just an instant connection from the start. He planned my whole itinerary 1 week prior my travel dates , and prices were reasonable. Our guide Walter was the best part about our trip , he has a lot of knowledge about the animal wildlife, and always answered all our questions. Definitely recommend this agency to anyone thinking of doing a Safari.

5 star Safari Experience
Our first trip to Africa and we had no idea of what we were getting into. Paul at Tanzania Roadside Expeditions was very quick to provide a quote with all the day to day details along with accommodations that were top-notch. He was very quick to respond to any questions we had through emails and whatsapp.
Justin, made our days in Tanzania very comfortable and enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable about the Parks, Wildlife, Maasai and shared a lot about life in Tanzania. He can definitely spot animals from far away - we were able to spot lots of animals including the Big Five. We were able to visit a Maasai village and also hiked along the Ngorongoro Crater Rim. He organized our daily schedule very well and made sure we not only spent time on game drives but also spent enough time at the lodges, relax and reminded us of all the inclusive services that we have paid for. He also took us to several souvenir shops for us to compare before deciding on making the purchases. Very down to earth person and always ready to help.
Food was amazing in all the lodges we stayed and never had any food selection issues with one of us being vegetarian.
We definitely recommend Justin & Tanzania Roadside Expeditions to anyone going to Safari in Tanzania.

Best safari ever!
We had 4-days trip visiting NP Tarangire, NP Serengeti and NP Ngorongoro. It was a life-time experience. We were there with our kids (8 and 10 years old) and we all had very nice time there.
Our driver & guide James was excellent, he provided us with all-day care and explained everything. He was very skilled driver and knew the way and the spots to watch very well. We saw big 5 (only the rhino was quite far). We saw plenty of elephants, giraffes, antelopes, zebras, lions(!), leopard, cheetah (also during hunt!), hyenas, rhino, hippos, crocodiles... Overnight stay in Kati Kati tented camp in Serengeti was also great experience.
Also there was no problem to keep our luggages safe in Zanzibar during our trip. All transfers were fine and plane tickets from Zanzibar to Arusha were arranged without issue.
We all enjoyed our trip and we highly recommend it to others!
