Fantastic experience and a wonderful guide!

Our trip with Lion King is the best experience in our life! The reservation worked really smoothly, we got great information, quick answers and it was a really good communication. Our lodges were well prepared when we got there. The accommodation, service and food were great.

Our guide Shafino was so amazing! He knows so much of all the animals, from small to big ones, not just what kind of animal it is, but also everything about them. We also learned so much from him about the nature amd culture of Tanzania.
He spotted a lot of animals that we would never have seen without him. He was patient and helped us with all our questions.

We couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Shafino!

We really recommend Lion king and our guide Shafino!

Memorable safari experience with our guide Gilbert from Lion King Adventures

The past week with our guide Gilbert from Lion King Adventures has been absolutely wonderful. We couldn’t have wished for a better guide and organisation. We (my parents and myself) went to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Gilbert was able to show us the big five

Great Safari experience, super professional team

Great Safari experience with Emmanuel Macha, superb guide!

We (family of 3) did a 6 day safari, which included a visit to Tarangiri, Serengeti, Ndutu and Lake Manyara. Our guide was Emmanuel Macha, who made our experience very memorable. "Macha" is a great guide, very knowledgeable about the area, the animals and the local culture. He has a great eye to spot animals and is a very competent driver, able to drive well in all conditions. We were very happy with the Lion King service from beginning to end, they were very flexible and responsive. All the places they choose for our stay, people were welcoming, friendly and ready to help. We highly recommend Lion King for your your Safari experience in Tanzania.

Trip of a lifetime

My husband and I had a wonderful experience dealing with Lion King Safari. We went on the safari with another couple, so our group had several questions. We always received timely responses leading up to the trip, with no hidden surprises.

The trip itself was amazing. So many animals and beautiful scenery. And, the people are so friendly. This was the best trip of my life.

Each of the resorts were luxurious and the the food was excellent. What a great trip for the price.

Our guide, Gilbert, was awesome. Very professional. Always had our meals prepped for the day and did a great job of “timely breaks”. After the safari, Gilbert showed us around Arusha and took us to a nice shopping area for some souvenirs.

My husband and I would highly recommend Lion King Safari to anyone looking to visit Tanzania on safari.

They delivered a once in a lifetime experience.

This was by far the best vacation adventure my wife and I have ever been on. Lion King Safari takes care of all the in-country transportation, including airport pick up and drop off. Each of the drivers were very professional and extremely polite.

Our guide, Gilbert, provided tons of information about the region, different cultures, and of course all the animals. One of the nicest persons and all about insuring our comfort and safety. Each of the resorts we stayed at, were heavenly.

We did not experience anything “unexpected”. Everything was well planned, which made the entire safari “stress-free”

We are frugal people and for the price, this trip delivered big time, beyond our expectations.

Everyone in Tanzania is so friendly and genuinely nice.

I highly recommend Lion King Safari!

A company that you can trust and exceed your expectations. Already planning our next trip with them!

I am very happy I chose this company, the reviews speak for themselves. We did the 7 day luxury, and it was quite amazing. Each place we stayed at was beautiful and the people working there were beautiful.

I planned the trip by speaking to James, and James is very responsive and really cares that we enjoy our experience. We had a small issue and right away James was able to fix it. Very reliable and flexible as a company. Every dollar was worth it!

Our tour guide Ozzie was exceptional. He made the trip great for us. He really cared that we saw the best things possible. We saw the big five and cheetahs all up close and I believe it was because of Ozzie’s skill, care, and knowledge. We learned so much from him. He even planned a surprise for my birthday with the hotel! We are already planning our next trip back and are going to request him!! Book with Lion King Adventures!

Highly Recommend. They took care of everything

I highly recommend Lion King Adventures. They are a locally owned and operated company in Tanzania specializing in Safaris. I sent them a list of things I wanted to do for our honeymoon, and they came back with a complete itinerary that hit my high points and was within my budget. They were very responsive while we finalized the itinerary.
Once on the trip, we did not have to worry about a thing. We were picked up from the airport and had the same driver and vehicle daily. The driver, Yosuf, spoke good English and always tried to work around what we wanted to do. We even made detours to pharmacies, clothing stores, and gift shops on the way to and from different national parks.
During the flight there our bag was lost by the airline. The support staff in the office worked with the airline to find the bag and deliver it to our hotel. I did not have to do a thing except file the initial claim.
It was a great trip.

From defining our objectives to executing the safari, we couldn't ask for more. Fabulous!

Planning the safari
Anna ,who took over the administration part of the project, from Nick Anderson, did a great job. Indeed, she communicated very effectively. Each of my questions got the answer within 24 hours. A real pro!

Executing the safari
Our three guides, Mwita, Immanuel, Salhe, were part of the team: they knew the "place", they anticipated when flexibility was required and they were friendly people with a superb sense of humor.. We were so pleased to invite them for dinner because it is not always easy to satisfy such a large and diversified group.

The lodges where very confortable especially the bathroom and the food was good (One doesn't go to the" Jungle"to enjoy every
day a three star restaurant.....)

Thank you to the management of Lion King who made this trip the dream of a life......

Fred Chesam was excellent in all aspects of the safari.

Fred was an excellent tour guide. We saw all the animals we dreamed of. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, rhinos and more. Fred was fun to spend time with. The jeep was spotless everyday. The lunches were fantastic. He was extremely conscientious and answered all the questions we had including the area culture. We enjoyed all our dinner conversations with Fred. You could tell he was on good terms with the staff of all the places he stayed. Fred deserves more than a 5 star rating.

Amazing Safari!

We were thrilled with the reliability and hospitality we received both from our guide Gilbert and the tour operator Lion King.
All of our accommodations exceeded our expectations, and were very clean however the food became repetitious after a week. Main dishes consisted of overcooked chicken or meat in a variety of sauces with either rice or potatoes and vegetables. ( I assume this is generic for all tour operators depending on the pricing level. )
A hot lunch was provided everyday while we were in transit. Each lodge or camp provided the lunch for the next day.
We moved five times during a week long safari and although we covered a lot of ground and saw over 85 species of birds, reptiles and animals, I would have preferred a slower pace, maybe move only three times in a week and have more down time. This was a personal preference and I would not say the our entire group of four people would agree!
In the end, I would not hesitate to recommend Lion King.
