Wonderful budget experience
We booked the safari one month in advance and we chose the 4 nights tented solutions, the cheapest one.
The organization was very good and all members of the staff very kind, from the moment we landed in Arusha until the end of the trip.
We enjoyed the game drives especially at Serengeti and Ngorongoro National parks. We had a great time with FRANK, our guide, which took us to see the best places and almost all the savana's animals. He is an expert guide and we appreciated a lot the descriptions and explanations he made.
DAVID, the cook, made our trip even better thanks to his delicious meals.
We really recommend both of them.
Thanks a lot to all Foot Slopes' Staff for making our experience unforgettable!

A Magical Journey
We had a great experience with Foot Slopes. The service from the minute we landed , all through out the safari , till the moment we got dropped back at the airport was amazing.
Friendly, knowledgable staff, great driver/guide who looked after us and put great efforts into explaining in great detail. The schedule was well planned and executed each day and left us with plenty of time to view animals at our own pace.
Three bits of negative feedback are:
1 - The sleeping bags were too thin, especially for the cold nights in Ngorongoro Crater and could have done with thicker sleeping bags.
2 - We found out that we paid far more than anyone else in the group, which was very unfair especially since everyone else had paid for the exact same experience.
3 - We were 7 instead of 6 people in the car which meant that it was overcrowded.
The Safari itself was amazing, but the company needs to work a little more on organising things better both from a comfort and logistical perspective.

A great choice for a Safari
One of the best parts of Foot Slopes was their fast response to my emails leading up to the trip. The tour itself was great and everything was taken care of; I literally just had to show up. The itinerary was changed without prior notice, but we still did everything that was stated. The days (the order in which we did things) were switched a bit to accommodate others joining parts of the tour. We were well taken care of by our guide.

VEry good staff
I spent three days in Tanzania, having spent a day on a safari, a day in a Masai village and a day on kilimanjaro, and everything went very well.
The pic-nic was good and with enough food, worth having been the exact same "menu" in the three days.
The person in charge of the company received us on the day of arrival and at the end of each day of activities.
In terms of follow-up during activities, we can say that they have sinned but by excess, since we were only a couple and we had three guides.
I advise choosing this company for a few days in Tanzania.

Great value for money
Communications were great with foot slopes. We got picked up and dropped off at the airport and they provided us with 2 extra nights at the hotel free of charge. The hotel in Arusha (Venice Hotel) was clean, had AC and even hot showers. The food was average but this was to be expected. The safari itself was excellent. Be prepared to spend a lot of time in the jeep getting to and between different parks. Having said that our driver had 15 years of experience which meant that we saw all the animals (including the big 5) we wanted to and had a fantastic time.

4 day budget safari
Me and my partner went on a group safari, budget camping for 4 days, visiting Tarangire NP, Serengeti NP and Ngorongoro crater and we had an wonderful experience. Communication with Foot Slopes was very good throughout the booking, they answered our questions always the same days as we sent them. A driver was already waiting for us when we arrived at the airport and took us to Arusha and the rest of the group (we were a total at 6 persons). Our guide Nickson was very professional and patient (though the group sometimes had different opinions about how much time to spend at different places and animals) and did everything he could to make us see many animals as close as possible. We were lucky to spot a rhino our last day so in the end we saw the big 5, we also spotted giraffe, zebra, hippopotamus, cheetah, warthog, hyena, etc etc. The vehicle was comfortable. Food was OK though personally we would prefer to eat something more local as the chef sometimes failed being a bit too ambitious making us fries, pizza and other "western food" when we all were just craving for rice, chapati, curry, veggies or else. After safari Foot Slopes helped us to find a nice budget hotel in Arusha and the day after they drove us back to the airport for no extra cost. In summary we are really pleased with the safari and the excellent service Nickson and the rest of the team from Foot Slopes offered us. We can warmly recommend them. Have in mind before booking the same 4 day budget safari that it's a lot of distance and many hours driving at bumpy rodes if you want to go to Serengeti NP.

Excellent value for money
The communication went very well by e-mail. They reply quickly to all your questions. The guide we had was very pleasant and knew a lot about the animals. He was very good at spotting as well. The cook that joined us was also very good at his job.
We chose the camping formula. I found it very pleasant, but you know you can expert very basic facilities. The atmosphere at the camp grounds is very nice though. It was our best experience during our Tanzania trip, we saw a lot of animals!

Good Budget Safari
Communication with company was very good prior to safari. They were quickly responsive to any question that we had. Upon arrival, pick-up at the airport was smooth and tour group was able to arrange for in-town transportation for us as we had a full day in Arusha before the start of our safari. The driver was professional and Footslopes arranged for a good price.
Footslopes walked us to an ATM machine and helped us pick out SIM cards and then properly load them on our phones. This was really appreciated.
The safari vehicle was nice and comfortable with a pop-top to be able to take good pictures of the animals.
The wildlife and bird watching was excellent in all of the parks we visited. Our guide was quite knowledgeable about animals and birds.
This is a budget safari and if you're not as worried about dining selections and hot water and more worried about animals and birding, then this is the safari for you.
We do recommend this tour but with the knowledge that it is a budget/value option.

Swift and accurate answers to questions during preparation-phase, friendly and skilled staff and personnel, adequate facilities, good driver/guide, nice cook, good program with adequate adaptation, first two days all by ourselves and thereafter nice companions. Guide responded patiently to our answers and wishes, never impatient or in a hurry. Succeeded in showing us the big, the small and the ugly five.

Great safari experience in Tanzania with Foot slopes.
Me and my boyfriend were in November on a 3-days Safari with Foot slopes. We visited Ngorongo crater, Manyara Lake and Tarangire. It was great. Everything was good planed. They picked us up on Arusha airport and brought us to our hotel. The next morning the safari started. Our driver was really kind, communicative and he also knew many things. The accomodation camp was great. It was clean and nice, all people were helpful, always smilling and kind. I would always go with them again.
