Outstanding bespoke service, top notch guides
5/5

we recently completed a 10 day safari with Salehe and Gilbert as our guides. Our group was a complicated group of infant/children and 80 year old grandparents with a wide mix of interests and personal comfort with "roughing it". Gilbert and Salehe were incredible from the moment they picked us up after our long voyage Tanzania, to our sad goodbyes many days later in the northern Serengeti. Key strengths of our guides included, great flexibility, emphasis on safety and comfort, and constant positive and professional attitude. Our guides were very knowledgeable about local culture and animal life, while also making sure we never felt pressured or pushed to do doing certain things or shopping. For my parents (both folks in their 80/70s), they said our guides were the highlights of the trip and we couldn't agree more. If you want a professional tour that will give you a taste of the wonders of Tanzania, we would strongly recommend Lion King and Gilbert and Salehe!

Fantastic Safari - would recommend
5/5

Just finished the most fantastic safari with Lion King adventures. The booking process was straight forward and we had great communication. The lodges were superb and the game drives were amazing, getting very close to the animals.
Our guide, Mwita was brilliant. He was eagle-eyed, very knowledgeable and knew the Serengeti like the back of his hand. He went to every effort to give us the best experience possible. We would definitely recommend Lion King Adventures and would request Mwita as our guide if we came again

Great times, great places, great sights, great people
5/5

Words are insufficient to describe the trip. My wife and I had a great time. We went to Tarangiri, Central and North Serengeti, Ngorogoro, and Lake Manyara. We saw everything we were hoping to see and more. We saw the wildebeest migrating across the Mara River, cats hunting prey, zebras fighting, gazelles running for their life, hyenas breaking down the carcass of a wildebeest and an elephant, the most beautiful sunsets, and a Massai village.

I would say the Central Serengeti is the absolute best place. Going in the dry season was spectacular and the game drives were a great adventure. Seeing a cheetah hunt was the highlight of the trip. The lion hunts were also incredible.

If you are uncertain about the tents in the Serengeti, they are wonderful. All of our accomodations were great with the tents in the Serengeti and Sarena's in Ngorogoro being our personal favorite.

Our guide, Immanuel Chamboa, was perfect. He is a bastion of knowledge, an expert driver on the rough roads, was courteous and polite, and always brought a positive attitude and ready laugh. He would review the next day and ask what we wanted to make sure our trip went as we wanted. I would recommend him to anyone going through on a safari in Tanzania. Plus, he can help teach fine Swahili to you.

If you are on the fence, jump off and have an adventure. The food is good, the accommodations welcoming, and the animals and sights second to none. This is my first safari but it won't be my last.

Absolutely the best possible choice for a safari in Tanzania!!
5/5

Amazing trip!! Anna helped us with the planning and she was great. Very patience, thorough and knowledgeable. Abu was our guide and it is hard to imagine any guide that could be better. He added so much to our trip! We had our 12 year old grandson with us and Abu was constantly engaging him in the experience in new ways. He knew so much about the animals, the birds, the plants, the customs and cultures - every question that we asked. Loved him! Highly recommend Lion King adventures!

Trip of a lifetime
5/5

I spent months, yes months, searching for the right tour company for our honeymoon. Seriously, we couldn’t have found a better company. Organization and communication were top-notch. We always felt like we were in good hands. From the first email exchanges with Nick sorting out our perfect itinerary to Pendo (who we can’t thank enough) taking care of every question, concern, and a very big last-minute rearrangement - like the day before arrival situation, and finally, to our guide, Khalifa, everyone and everything was absolutely AMAZING.

Khalifa’s good eyes and eagerness to spot animals brought us lots of good luck. Of course, our jeep, Pumba, also deserves a shoutout for getting us through those bumpy and rain-soaked roads! Khalifa is very knowledgable, personable, and funny. He is also very respectful of nature, the animals, and the regulations/rules. He pointed out so many different plants and animals to us, and we’ve come home with tons more knowledge than when we arrived. We saw the Big Five and many other animals. But, the absolute highlight of the trip was witnessing a crazy morning hunt by two different prides of lions!! Which Khalifa told us is rare to encounter! We wish to be back in the jeep with Khalifa trying to spot an elusive leopard or a lazy lion.

Asante Sana to Pendo, Khalifa, and everyone at Lion King Adventures for making this trip one for the books. Truly a trip of a lifetime.

Excellent
5/5

We've had a wonderful safari with Peter, he knows biology very well and he've explained us everything about animals in Tanzania. We've seen lot of them, for example very near lions with their puppies eating a warthog or a group of four cheetas lying down in the shade of a tree. Even the accomodations were excellent and everything settlet in perfect time organizations.

Unforgettable Experience!!
5/5

Booking my Safari with Lion King Adventures was an excellent experience from start to finish. The team was very responsive and patient with all of my questions. They were very accommodating when we ran into issues with Covid restrictions which we really appreciated. Our guide was Meshack and he was fantastic! Very welcoming and helpful, and so patient! always looking for ways to make our experience even better. He is truly amazing at what he does, the encounters we had with the animals will be cherished always. we will never forget our Safari experience thanks to Meshack and the team at Lion King Arventures!

Wonderful Honeymoon Experience - Thank You Lion King!
5/5

The entire experience with Lion King Adventures from beginning to end was both seamless and an unforgettable experience. Anna and James helped plan out the safari and were amazingly responsiveness. Anna even helped secure a next-day hot air balloon excursion when we decided to sign up on a whim.

David, our tour guide, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, attentive and constantly ensuring that our safari was as fun and amazing as possible.

Without hesitation, we highly recommend that you consider using Lion King Adventures to coordinate your safari!

A word of advice. Take an extra day or two at one location to relax and give yourself a respite from roadside travel. For example, we wish we took two days to enjoy everything Gibb’s Farm had to offer. You’ll be glad you did!

Lion king we’re honestly excellent in every regard
Yusuph our guide was fantastic - got us incredible views of a huge range of animals and was very knowledgeable.
The hotels were incredible, we were treated so well and got some fantastic honeymoon treatment
Would strongly recommend
Really minor thing to bear in mind - cost is in dollars so coming from UK we were impacted by changing FX

Wonderful experience
5/5

Our safari with Lion King Adventures was one of the greatest experiences in my life. We booked a 8-day individual trip including day-trips to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Arusha National Park and 4 days in Serengeti.
In every national park we were amazed by the amount of animals we saw. Often they sat right next to the road and we could get a really close look. Our guide, Mwita, always knew the best places to watch and has an incredibly big knowledge of wild animals. I’m quite sure, that without him our safari would not have been that big success!
Not only the game drives in the national parks were amazing, the whole organisation was perfect: starting from the food, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, to included drinks and beautiful lodges with WI-FI, everything went really smoothly. Everyone was really friendly and we felt welcome at every place we stayed.
I will never forget those days. Huge thank you to our Guide Mwita and Lion King Adventures!
