Incredible Tanzania Safari Experience - A Journey Into the Wild with The Great Guide Shafino!
5/5

The safari that my wife and I did with Shafino was the trip of a lifetime! A true five star, must-do experience!! Despite having 40+ countries under our belts, a safari with Shafino and Lion King Adventures has become our number one recommendation to all of our friends and family!

We spent 7 days traveling from Arusha into the heart of the Serengegti, Ngorongoro, Manyara, and Tarangire. The logistics across the whole trip were super smooth - we never had to worry about a thing the whole time so could focus our effort on safari-ing. Lunches were delicious and Shafino always knew the perfect hidden spots where we overlooked expansive landscapes that were postcard perfect. The lodges were outstanding - they were the optimal blend of luxury and immersion in nature - plus, it was almost as though the safari never stopped. While at the lodges we saw giraffes, impala, warthogs, and much more while taking a dip in the pool or sitting enjoying a drink watching some of the best sunsets we’ve seen! Waking up to the sounds of the bush, with the sun casting its golden hue on the Savannah, it felt like we were still dreaming. On top of that, Shafino was the perfect liaison between us and the staff ensuring that our experience was extra special throughout our whole time!

Despite all of the amazing animals we saw, our guide Shafino was the true star of the safari. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that he is the top guide in all of Tanzania! His knowledge is endless and his mastery of the animals is only matched by his ability to articulate the nuances of the various tribal cultures. His amazing “fun facts” made learning about everything this beautiful country has to offer exciting and deepened our appreciation for this incredible ecosystem! Further, Shafino’s 25+ years of experience as a guide means that he knows all of the secret spots and his passion for the wildlife was wonderful to see. We saw the “Big Five”/“Big Nine” seemingly over and over and had wildlife encounters that were beyond compare. Majestic elephants passed within a few feet, lions napped just out of reach, and we even spotted several, yes several, of the illusive leopard.

If you’re looking to do an unbelievable safari in Africa - look no further - this is the one that you want to do!

We had a great 6 days safari with Yusuph from Lion King. Everything was in order already from the booking of the safari where we talked to Godwin. Smooth conversation and also quick to reply which was very nice. Yusuph was very polite, informative and respectful. Your wish is always the first priority. Can definitely recommend!

Trip of a lifetime
5/5

What an amazing experience. We spent 4 days on safari with an amazing guide named Fidhali … he was super knowledgeable and able to spot animals from such distances. Wonderful time … so many animals, the wildebeest and zebra migration. We saw all the big 5. Fidhali made sure to go out of his way to make sure our trip was amazing. Great guide. Highly recommend.

Unbelievable safari experience
5/5

We had the most amazing time with Lion King Adventures. Maria and Nickson helped us decide on the tour and arrange a custom safari according to what we wanted to see. Our guide Yusuph was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and flexible, and thanks to him we got to see a huge variety of animals, as well as parts of the Great Migration. He also made us feel completely safe, as he was an excellent guide and driver. From our pickup at the airport to dropoff, we felt in good hands, with reliable communication, high quality lodges and hot food, and an amazing safari. It was the trip of a lifetime, and we cannot recommend this experience enough!
