Unique experience Zanzíbar & Selous/Nyerere
5/5

We had a fantastic holiday. The Safari tour was well organised. A short 30 min flight from Zanzibar to Tanzania. A private tour in the jeep with a ranger who wanted to get the most out of it. The bush walk was fun but we saw no animals, we did see plants and insects. Crocodiles and hippos during the boat tour! On the way back we wanted to visit a village to see how the people live there. impressive. The stay at the Lodge was great. Clean and spray every day. Wonderful cooling in the pool, friendly people. The Resort Dream of Zanzibar was hot but a lovely stay in a luxery room, kind people, great food.

Extremely good organization of the whole trip. Our drive Stan was outstanding, he knew a lot about heritage of Tanzania and about wildlife. He enable us to see big 5, with all the others beautiful creatures.
We would recommend to everyone looking for a nice, safe, value for money safari experience.

Very well organized
4/5

We had the combination of Beach and Safari. 3 days beach at Reef and Beach in Zanzibar, flying by plane to Arusha, 4 days safari, flying back to Zanzibar and 3 days Reef and Beach. An ideal combination to relax and see the sun and sea in a tropical paradise, and action during the safari. A wonderful experience, well organized, always a warm welcome in the lodges, very helpful staff, and very reliable. Even with a flight delay the driver was still waiting for us.

Only suggestion: book the morning flight back to Zanzibar. Friends of us had the 10.00 flight with flight link and weer at the beach at 12.30. We had the 16.45 flight with a 2 hour delay and arrived 21.00 at the hotel. So we missed a complete day of the beach part of the trip.

Otherwise a wonderful experience and very well organized. Thank you for your good service

Wonderful!!
5/5

Once is not enough, so we are for sure to book the combination trip again in september this year! The guide, his name is Isack Mollel (Justin) has a lot of knowledge of nature and animals, so that makes the safari unforgettable!

And also not to forgotten, the guest relations manager Joy of the Reef and Beach resort who has done everything possible to ensure that the safari continues, she stopped the rain ;-))

The safari was wonderful. We saw everything what we wanted to see and even more. We learned a lot about the culture and animals. Julius is a great guide, he is kind and very knowledgeable about everything. I would recommend everyone to go on safari with Julius.

Well organised, great trip
3/5

We had a wonderful and amazing trip!! Apparently good hotels, but dinner and lunch were a big disappointment on every safari day
.. that was a shame. But the country and the safari days made up for that.

Once in a lifetime opportunity
5/5

I was fortunate enough to visit multiple parks and various lodges on my Northern Safari as we did a circuit. Apart from the absolute abundance of wildlife on our journey I was also amazed at how each lodge offered something unique and special which really means that you are able to relax each evening and enjoy a good meal and sleep before heading out on safari each day. We stayed at Africa Safari Arusha for one night on arrival and one night on departure which was great as we were able to rest just before and on return from our safari before heading back to Zanzibar. With lush gardens, a great little bar and a fab swimming pool, Africa Safari Arusha is a little haven on the outskirts of a bustling city. Onto Africa Safari Lake Manyara which is a resort style property offering a variety of luxury tents and lake front bungalows in a resort style setting – you can easily spend more than one night here. The animals roam amongst the accommodation and the breeze that comes off the lake is so refreshing. Next as we were heading further to the north was Africa Safari Karatu, which is modern accommodation elevated overlooking the Ngorongoro Highlands. The restaurant and bar have 180-degree views and the swimming pool is just makes you want to jump in! This was our access point to the Ngorongoro Crater. What an amazing experience overlooking the magnificent crater – it honestly looked like the Garden of Eden as you saw the animals (including elephants) all living in harmony. We had a great lunch on the rim of the crater – it was a hot meal which wasn’t expected. Then it was onto the Serengeti – again a totally different terrain and a haven for all sorts of animals! This is where you really understand the ‘Plains of Africa’ as there are parts where there isn’t a tree in sight! We were fortunate to witness a migration here (I didn’t realise that the the migration is year-round which is why it’s great to do a circuit because at some stage you should be able to see this phenomenon). That night was at Africa Safari South Serengeti, just a short drive away from Lake Nduti so as you arrive you are able to see all sorts of wildlife, hippo, elephants, birds along the lake. We stayed in beautiful tents and were treated to all the luxuries and amenities of a hotel, including fabulous meals, right in the Serengeti! Africa Safari Ikoma was the next stop for lunch en route further up north. We enjoyed a peaceful lunch overlooking the African plains of (you can just imagine how magnificent it must be when the migration passes here). This evening’s accommodation was at Africa Safari Maasai Boma – the unique trait of this lodge is the Maasai style ‘rondavels’ you stay in (with all the amenities you need to make your stay super comfortable) and the views from the dining area are just beautiful. We then headed back to Arusha via Lake Natron where Africa Safari Lake Natron is an oasis in a somewhat dramatic landscape – overlooking the alkaline Lake Natron and looking onto a volcano (the brave and fit can climb the volcano). Our wonderful driver Justin was knowledgeable, gracious, patient and just an all-round fun companion on our safari. Each lodge had friendly, accommodating team members and the accommodation was of an excellent quality throughout our trip. When you consider all your park fees, accommodation, transport and meals are included this is excellent value. I wish it had been longer and I would love to return some day soon. Thank you for the memories!
