Very professional and easy to contact.
5/5

We enjoyed the Safari tremendously!! It was better than we had expected. Adam was a wonderful guide who is incredibly knowledgeable and responsible. We felt ever so safe in his hands as he had it all under control all the time. We loved every place we went. Every day was full of adventure. We even enjoyed the long hours of off road driving as the jeep was very comfortable.

Adam was a great companion. I would strongly recommend him as a driver and a guide. He proved to have a great experience in spotting the animals and sharing his extensive knowledge with us. There was no question he could not answer! Very impressive.

The hotels were perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. Very comfortable and with a very strong local feel. The food was good too. The best thing for me personally was the fact that the beds were super comfortable as I suffer from lower backache and I'm quite sensitive. I slept better than a sleeping lion!

In parks we saw plenty of wild animals: zebras, giraffes, buffalos, gazzellas, lions and many more. We visited Tarangire National Park, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Lake Manyara and each place had something new to offer.

My highlight was the amazing, warm and very hospitable Tanzanian people as well as getting to know Masai people and their culture. We did a walk with Masai people who were sharing their immense knowledge about plants, how to use them and animals. My son learnt how to make fire using wooden sticks.

Overall, the safari was the real deal !!! Long hours in the jeep driven off road and encounters of wild animals that by now feel at ease when jeeps with tourists pass by and observe them with curiosity. We came back fulfilled and very happy that we could add safari to our life experience.

Amazing experience!
5/5

We had 6 day tented lodge safari and we visited Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
There was only two of us in the car with our guide/driver Adson so it was like private tour. Adson was an excellent driver and very patient guide. Very genuine person. He knew alot about the animals and told us very interesting facts during the game drives and he really seems to enjoy his job. He also didn't hurry at all when ever we wanted to stop watching animals, taking pictures or just enjoy some views.
During the game drives we saw almost all possible animals and many of them very close by. Lions, elephants, buffalos, hippopotamus, giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards, zeebras, many different antilopes and lots and lots more!! We got so lucky we even saw 3 rhinos at the same time in Serengeti! It was so rare and beautiful moment!
Everything went so smoothly and as planned. We didn't need to worry at all. The tented lodges were very nice and safe to stay. Amazing moments listening the wildlife at night while trying to sleep. Lions roaring and hyenas laughing, monkeys jumping on tents roof and zeepras eating the grass just a few meters away from the tentes. Food was good in many of the places and hygienic seemed good.
Overall very good value for your money!
From the very first moments when we contacted to Shemeji safari everything went so well. Super nice and fast customer service. Very reliable.
We definitely recommend this company and experience to everyone!!
We couldn't ask for more. Just perfect!
(At least) once in a life time experience.
Tansania forever in our hearts! Asante <3

Very well priced and got to see a lot! We explored multiple different parks in northern Tanzania and got to see lots of different animals up close in their natural environments. Our tour guide was very kind and knowledgeable.

Fantastic safari.
5/5

We went on a 3 day safari. We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel for one night and started our safari the following morning. Bariki was a fantastic guide, he’s knowledgeable, punctual and helpful and great company. Our first day was around Tarangire national park which was amazing, we saw so many different animals and birds, had a great packed lunch with an incredible view. On the way back we visited some Masai people and saw how they make fire etc. we got back to our accommodation about 6pm. The accommodation was was mind blowing! What an amazing place, waking up to zebras and wildebeest walking around the tents and seeing hippos munching away while eating supper. Sitting inside the tent listening to zebras munching on grass. The second day was Ngorongoro crater, another mind blowing day, third day was Manyara lake. Every day was incredible. We enjoyed every moment.
I WhatsApp’d a few times to ask some questions about the weather etc and got a fast response which was reassuring.
This was a holiday of a lifetime and everything was perfect. Thank you so much for making that happen.

Perfect organisation and a memorable experience
5/5

We have originally booked our Safari in the Northern circuit of Tanzania back in 2020 just before the pandemic burst and our travel plans were being screwed; we liaised with Shemeji who kept our deposit valid for when we would have been able to re-organise our trip, and finally 2022 was good to go. Communication in these difficult months have been good and we got timely responses updating us around the situation in Tanzania. Re-booking has been also easy and smooth and the original plan was retained and we received enough information for pre-departure. Also, they have extremely helpful and kind to buy for us a few bus tickets for the following stop of our journey across Tanzania.
The organisation of the Safari has been flawless and very well set, the vehicle was spacious for the two of us and we travelled comfortably along the bumpy roads of the parks. Our driver and guide has been super professional, kind and flexible to accommodate our needs; he also provided information on wildlife as we spotted them in our game drives.
All accommodation were comfortable, good, clean and very well kept; also services and food in the tented lodges was perfect for us.
All in all I think Shemeji is a reliable and professional company and I would recommend them with no hesitation.

Responsive, kind, caring, knowledgeable and inspiring! They truly want the best for their customers!
5/5

If I could give Shemeji travel 100 stars I would! They are the best company out there, have the best camp sites and hotels on their books, the best trucks, and the best staff. Everyone is so kind, thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable. They all contributed to help us have our bream bucket list holiday and made it a million times better. They allowed us to relax and took the stress out of planning. Their hotels are exquisite and well worth every single penny. The guides they use are some of the best and happiest people I've ever met who inspire you to do better every single day. If you are booking a safari use these guys. It was effortless from start to finish!

Absolutely wonderful
5/5

Thank you so much for a wonderful week in Tanzania! The reason we chose Shemeji Tours was because of the abundant information they sent us when were researching safaris, as well as their responsiveness. Once we arrived in Tanzania and met our guide, we understood we had made the right decision. The guide made us feel very comfortable, while helping us to understand local customs, and at the same time, giving us space when appropriate. Our guide, Godliving, was an outstanding guide for us, and we highly recommend him! We absolutely LOVED the experience and are telling our friends and family about Shemeji tours and our guide.
