Wonderful safari experience

The two of us had an absolutely wonderful time for almost three weeks on our roadtrip through Tanzania, visiting several parks. We stayed overnight at most lovely and sometimes remote situated tented-camps. The Tanzanian hosts were always very friendly and helpful. We saw the amazing nature, many, many animals and also the culture of the people.
Our guide, driver and travelling companion, with a good sense of humour, Reggie (‘Wiki Reggie’), had all the information you could wish for on the animals, landscapes, and so much more, so a big round of applause for him!

We thank owner Didas and his team a lot for the personal attention, advice and service, in advance and throughout our roadtrip, All the necessary communication went super fast!

Asante sana to all of you!

A Great operator and the best guide for a safari

I had a safari experience with my friends and we chose to organize it with Gladiola Adventure, also encouraged by the previous reviews, which were very positive and in line with our feeling for the trip. The organization was perfect and everything was as we would have liked it to be. The thing that took the experience to the "wonderful level" was our guide Regie. he explained the animals and their habits to us in detail, making every day very interesting, furthermore he was ready to listen to us, our questions and also our needs, responding and satisfying them as best as possible. At the end of this experience we saw all the animals, took wonderful photos (here only some photos taken with the cell phone, the ones from the camera are better, I swear) and spent wonderful moments in this country. I highly recommend this experience

In August this year, we hired a Toyota Landcrusier from Gladiola Adventure for 18 days. We were very excited with our German mentality and the awareness of how contracts are organised in this country.
We were in contact with Didas from the beginning of March and prepared our adventure as self-drivers.
He always responded to us quickly and was very supportive.
On 2.8.23 the time had come. Didas personally brought the car to Dar es Salaam. After an introduction to the handling of the roof tents, the accessories and the technique of changing tyres, we set off on a fantastic journey through this beautiful country.
Our fridge gave up the ghost in Lake Manyara National Park. A day later we had a new one. It was really great how Didas stood by our side and helped us the whole time. We also organised the permits for Ngorongoro by phone and WhatsApp.
The people in Tanzania are extremely friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful experience to experience this country as a self-driver and we can highly recommend it. Gladiola Adventure with Didas is also an excellent address!!!
We will definitely be back. 
One small thing dear Didas: please put some new camping chairs in the camping equipment ;-)

excellent partner

A fantastic journey through Tanzania thanks to Reggie.
We rented a 6 passenger Land Cruiser. A great, comfortable and brave car. Very reliable. I highly recommend Gladiola. The owner - Didas is very nice and helpful. If you ask he will definitely try to meet your requests. We had an amazing guy named Reggie traveling with us. Whenever he is available as your travel companion, take advantage of his expertise.

Our driver and guide Reggie Mshomba made it an amazing journey.

Our driver and guide was really good. A deep understanding for wildlife.

What we didn't like, was the equipment and a quite very old car with actually no really 4-wheel-drive and no A/C.

A trip we will never forget, thanks to Reggie

We stayed for two weeks in Tanzania and got to see the amazing nature, animals and culture of the people. Our guide Reggie knew so much about the country, the way animals live, how the ecosystems work and so much more. His knowledge and passion made us feel so engaged with the country. Tanzania has a special place in our hearts and Gladiola and our amazing guide made this happen. Thank you.

Experienced and dedicated to provide a total package of all interests

We traveled as a family of 4 (2 adults and two 4 and 7 year old kids). With our guide Reggie we had a perfect experience. Very patient and open to all our changes and ideas. So we could adapt our plans and were able to maximize our travel. The best is he was great with our kids and we always felt save and well informed about the wildlife

Trustworthy & Reliable

We loved our self-drive adventures. We could use the hire car to go to lots of the national parks. The company kept in touch, agreed to allow us to change the dates when I ended up in hospital, we're fine even when we had an issue with the exhaust, werent too bothered about small marks on the car. The Rav4 was perfect for what we needed. Definitely would recommend. Beware though - driving standards are totally different in Africa than the UK, Europe, America etc.
