A Very Good Experience

Raja tours was responsive to our inquiry. We made at least 5 inquiries during our search and Raja seemed to be the most reasonable. We sorta went blindly due to our short turnaround but ultimately it went better than we thought.

The tour guide and driver (Hassan) was a pure delight. He picked us up at home and got us to Selous Game Park. It was about a 5 hour drive there and back to Dar Es Salaam. We stopped along the way which was a bit odd for us during COVID but we went along with it. It was fine and we stayed distant. The game drive my was awesome. We saw everything, lions, hippos, giraffes, you name it.

The lodge we stayed at was spectacular. The Selous Lodge. It was much better than we expected. Very clean and inviting. The decorations were great and the bar and restaurant were so well kept. 5 stars. The swimming pool was a nice surprise. Quick mention for everyone is that the power goes out at 2230 each night and the heat inside the rooms was heat punishing. It was tough to sleep but fine nonetheless. The food was great and so were the people.

All in all, it was wonderful.

A good choice

After my 4 days tour in Selous park, I can suggest to all those who are looking for professionalim and a great diversity regarding the activities planned for the safari, to opt for Raja tours; it is a guarantee of satisfaction. His choice for a qualified staff who take care of any details, allowed to me to feel well and enjoy the tour without preoccupation. A specific thank to my guide Hassan, that I recommend to any travellers, for its great enthousiasm to speak about beauties of his country and for answering with patience, sympathy and professionalim to any question. I also find lots of attention and warmth from the staff of Kinda Selous lodge.

Nice park, poor guide

We went for a 4 days safari in Selous game reserve (in fact Julius Nyerere NP). Mid range accomodation was nice with kind staff. Park itself was nice even if some ways were unpraticable do to the rain. Even if he is a nice guy, our guide is probably the worse we met in Africa. He seems more interested by his freetime than by guiding, "full day game drive" ended after lunch break, on the way back, he drove 60km/h making quite impossible to spot anything. Almost all animal seen were spot by others cars or by ourselves. During a game drive our "guide" wrote messages on his phone while driving in the park, very unrespectful attitude for the guests who paid to see wildlife and not only move in a park.

Luxury and professionalism

RajaTours Tanzania provided us with a 2-day (Mikumi national park & Masai village) and a 3-day safari (Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara). Both were of the highest quality, affordable, professionally arranged, lead by highly knowledgeable guides and, most importantly, FUN! The accommodations booked for the safaris were amazing - very comfortable and luxurious.
Thank you, RajaTours, this has definitely been an enjoyable experience in Tanzania!

Authentic experience

Raja put together an authentic Tanzania adventure.
He listened to what I was searching for, and matched my plans perfectly.
As a solo traveler; I toured Dar es Salaam with Ally, and went on a Selous Safari adventure with Hassan. Both guides where outstanding.
I'd use Raja and travel with these guides anytime.

Excellent value for money

We went on a luxury safari arranged by Raja Tours to Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. From the very first contact with Rajab, we found him very responsive to all questions on both WhatsApp and email. He arranged a superb safari and all our accommodation were really good and relaxing. When we had a delayed luggage issue with our airline, Rajab was very supportive, even helping us to purchase some temporary replacements. Our safari guide and driver was Godwin. He was really quite good - patient, knowledgeable and flexible, and making every effort to ensure we were safe and comfortable. Raja tours rates were very competitive but they still delivered just as well. I will definitely recommend them to anyone.

Excellent 7 days safari

The safari was all that we expected. Rajab is always very responsive and answered all my questions beforehand. Our guide, Bashiru, made the safari really enjoyable, and everything went according to plan.
We’re glad we chose Raja Tours!

7-Day the big 4 parks trip in northern Tansania

The trip was absolutely outstanding. Radjab did a great job planing the tour with us. He answered our questions via email within minutes. All of the accommodations were very comfortable.

Our guide Godwin was very kind an knowledgeable. He always found the perfect spot to see the wild animals. Due to his great driving skills we felt safe and could enjoy the wildlife even in areas with rough road conditions because of the starting raining season.

We want to especially thank Godwin and Rajab for their help in the special situation when our flight got cancelled. They managed to get us home safe and fast.
The trip was perfect and their help was far more than we could have expected.

Semitailored safari for two

Planning support, communication prior the safari and organisation exceeded our expectations.
Rajatours did everything to meet our wishes.
The execution was just as agreed, everything to our liking.
The personnel we met were most friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and enabled us enjoyable 10 days in Tanzania.
We are happy to recommend RajaTours Tanzania further.

Amazing time with RajaTours in Kenya and Tanzania!!

Rajatours set us up with the perfect itinerary for our 7 day safari through Kenya and Tanzania. The process of booking was very easy adn Rajab was excellent at responding to us and all of our questions.

Our guides Jeff in Kenya and Godwin in Tanzania were amazing! They were really committed to giving us the ultimate experience. They were excellent drivers and very knowledge about the landscape, the people and the animals. We saw the Big 5 Several times over on our trip.

We opted to drive across the border from Kenya to Tanzania and Jeff walked us through the whole process and handed us off to Godwin in Tanzania.

All of the hotels and resorts we stayed in were amazing with amazing staff and the food was delicious. We never went hungry!

When we go back to Africa in the future we will be sure to reach out to Rajabu at RajaTours and have him set us up again!
