Luxury and well organised

I absolutely loved the whole process of booking my Africa trip with Lion king adventures. From intially organising my trip with Pendo / Nickson over email, to once I'm there, with my friendly and knowledgeable guide Leonard, it all went smoothly! My driver from the airport (Tumain) was also lovely to chat too who took me from Kilimanjaro to Arusha.

Accommodation, food, vehicles were all above expectations - I was looked after like a king!

Conversation in English was never an issue with Leonard, he explained many facts on animals and the landscape, especially about the reason Serengeti is so flat and treeless! Loved my time on safari! Even saw a lioness take down a Zebra very close to where we had parked!

Wonderful honeymoon safari

Our African safari with Lion King Adventures was an absolute dream come true! Standing with Pendo who booked the trip, was very patient and came up with several different options to make sure it met our desired length of stay and level of accommodations. From the moment we arrived in Tanzania, our honeymoon felt incredibly special thanks to the choice of lodges that exuded luxury and charm. The breathtaking landscapes, magnificent wildlife, and enchanting sunsets made every day unforgettable.

However, what truly set this experience apart was our incredible tour guide, Enock. He was not just a guide, but a storyteller, a friend, and a true ambassador of Tanzania. Enock went above and beyond to ensure we didn't miss a single wonder of this beautiful country. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and warm personality made the journey even more extraordinary.

Every step of the tour surpassed our wildest expectations. It's rare to find such a perfect blend of adventure, comfort, and genuine connection with both nature and the people. If you're planning an African adventure, take our word for it – ask for Enock as your guide; he will make your journey a memory to cherish forever.

Thank you, Lion King Adventures, for making our honeymoon safari an experience beyond words. We are forever grateful for the memories you've helped us create.

Lion King Adventures is a fantastic Tanzanian tour company with a highly responsive/competent team!

Bottom line: If you are planning an African safari, Lion King Adventures is definitely a team of highly skilled professionals that we would strongly recommend. From the front office help (Rose and Caroline) to our wonderful guide (Freddie), we had a truly jaw- dropping experience. Every question was answered (and we asked a lot of them), every need met and every dream realized.

This was a 15 day experience (10 day safari and 4 days relaxing in Zanzibar). The accommodations were terrific and the food was outstanding. When there were unexpected issues (KLM-lost luggage), the Lion King team was immediately on top of it and the problem was resolved.

Our guide, Freddie, was incredibly knowledgeable. He could spot animals so quickly and immediately get us close for photos. He worked well with other guides, communicating regularly, so as to make sure we saw the 'big 5' and a host of other interesting animals.

In closing, if you are considering a safari, choose Lion King Adventures. We could not have asked for more. KUDOS to the Lion King Team!

Magnificent Safari Experience

There are not enough words to describe how phenomenal our safari experience was! From the beginning of planning to the safari itself, Lion King was professional and helpful. The trip consultant who helped me select the itinerary was thorough and timely with responses. Rose took over once I selected the itinerary and moved forward with planning. She was patient and answered every question right up until our departure. The driver who picked us up at Kilimanjaro was friendly and gave us basic information for the start of our safari the next day. Then, that is where the real magic happened.

Richard, our guide, was everything we could have hoped for and more. His passion for the parks and the animals was evident during the entire safari. He was just as excited to find animals as we were. He was so patient with our many questions (it was like we became kids again with our many, random questions about the animals and their habits lol) and he was extremely knowledgeable. Richard knew key locations to find hard to spot wildlife. We saw a leopard, 12+ cheetahs (including babies!), and more lions than I can recall (including two sightings eith with recent kills). Richard was the ultimate host and guide and constantly had our best interest in mind. His personality was kind, amiable, and fun. I honestly think that the safari guide can make or break the entire experience, and Richard made our experience unforgettable while setting a high standard for our expectations on future safaris. We will absolutely request him again if/when we return.

Thank you, Lion King and team!

If you have read this far, then book the safari. You will NOT regret it!

Great custom made experience!

If you are looking for an experience that will exceed your expectations, then Lion King Adventures is a great choice. We spoke with them several times before confirming our decision, and they made sure to select the best package to make our experience unforgettable. The hotels they recommended were great, and the tour guide was very experienced and friendly, always making sure we were having a good time, and understanding the fact that we were coming from a very far, and very different culture.
They definitely have the right attitude towards hospitality, and will do everything possible to make you feel at ease and enjoy your adventure.
Thank you Lion King Adventures! May you stay great for Tanzania!

Expectacular Team and Amazing Experience

Long story short... AMAZING!!!!!
Our experience was excellent since our first email requesting a quote until saying Good bye to our guide Mwita (aka THE BEST GUIDE)
We searched around for months before making our decision. But the communication was great with them. We got a lot of information that helped us well prepare our trip. We did Tarangire and Ngorongoro. The guide Mwita had an answer for everything. We learned a lot with him. I do recommend this company to anyone. I'm glad we went with Liong King!

Absolutely amazing safari

From the booking to the actual safari itself lion king we’re superb. We really found the pre-departure information helpful and the communication about the details was always prompt and sound. The safari itself was amazing. Enock our guide was extremely able and knowledgeable and seemed to instinctively know where to search for animals. We saw loads and several close up, including elephants, cheetahs and lions. The accommodation were really special and we especially like being in the tented camp on the Serengeti. The cooked picnic lunches were lovely each day and we always seemed to have a great picnic spot.
If you are thinking about a safari then lion king is a great professional company to go with.

Excellent safari experience made by Lion King Adventures

From the first contact on we felt well looked after. We were provided with a lot of informations how to prepare for the safari and we were also helped by Kabwe from Lion King Adventures while we had problems to receive the visa for Tanzania.
Everything worked well and we were very lucky with our guide Heaven. We can recommend this tour including Tarangire NP, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. If we come back to Tanzania one day we would stay in Serengeti a few days longer, it is definitly worth. The booked accommodations, especially Nyota Luxury Camp in Serengeti and Embalakai Camp near Ngorongoro, were very good with friendly and helpful people. The meals at the lodges were delicious and we were also provided with fresh cooked lunch from these lodges during our safari tour. So, we had a great time in Tanzania! Asante sana!

unforgettable Safari with Lion King and Huruma

When I booked the tour on website, Lion King replied prompt and optional.
What the accommodations Lion King booked are more than expectation! If let me book, I cannot find such fantastic acommodations like Nyota luxurious camp!

What's the most important, the guide Huruma from Lion King is professional, passionate and responsible, he knows everything about Tanzania and Safari, be happy to share. And Huruma is a kind guide, when we saw other cars met problems on the way, he tried to help them, even though they are from other companies.

The car and scheduale is perfect, and all meals (lunch organized by Huruma), dinners, breakfasts are pretty good.

Will highly recommend Lion King and Huruma to everyone who will come to Safari! I would visit again!
