Experienced Guides & Amazing Sights — Trip of a Lifetime
5/5

Great experience with Lion King Adventures! E-mail communication was prompt and seamless throughout the planning process—including when our flight to Tanzania was delayed by nearly 12 hours! Our guide, David, was an excellent driver on difficult roads, and even stopped to rescue some stranded motorists. He was also incredibly knowledgeable about the local wildlife, and helped make sure we saw every animal we wanted to see (even a rare serval!). Our lodgings and food were also excellent. We had a great time, and would definitely recommend.

Perfect Safari thanks to Lion King and Mwita
5/5

We just finished our safari with Lion King two days ago and flew on to Zanzibar.

Before we booked the Safari, we searched in the internet for a long time for a trustworthy Safari tour operator. We really wanted a tour operator from Tanzania and not a German travel operator. During our search we found Lion King and contacted them. We received a very professional response very quickly. The safari was put together completely individually according to our wishes. We asked a lot of questions and always got a professional answer and solution. At the end of the organization we had a safari that was perfect for us. When it comes to payment, Lion King is very trustworthy and gives many tips so that everything works smoothly.

Thanks Caroline and Pendo for the perfect organization and the patience with all my questions!!!

The perfect organization continues on the safari. We were in Tarangire NP, Arusha NP, Serengeti NP, Norongoro Caldera, Manjara NP and made a day trip to Kilimanjaro. Our guide Mwita made the safari an unforgettable experience. He was born in the Serengeti and knows everything, every animal, plant and culture. We saw more than we expected. Mwita coordinates everything and all points are flexible. He always makes suggestions which we were happy to follow. We spontaneously wanted to visit the Maasai, Mwita organized it. Mwita pays a lot of attention to nature and people. He always knows where the animals are going before they even start walking. Mwita never gave up before we found an animal we were looking for, as long as nature allows.

The organization around the safari is perfect, drinks in the car and always delicious food on the way. Entry and exit to the national parks are tied to specific times, and Mwita organized that perfectly, too.

As the name Lion King says, we saw many lions, from big to small.

We had a perfect safari.
Lion King is absolutely trustworthy, professional and reliable.

Thanks to Caroline, Pendo and Mwita!!!
You are the best, asante!

Honeymoon safari
5/5

Amazing honeymoon safari with Lion king adventures. Yusuph was a wonderful guide, he was extremely knowlegable about all the wildlife, animals and plants - there was no question left unanswered! He knew the parks very well, and was able to spot animals from far off. He was very considerate of our requirements and flexible. The game drives were incredible! The lodges we stayed in were also fantastic. Highly recommended

Highest recommendation for Lionkingadventures and our guide Salehe

We booked a 6 day luxury safari with Lionkingadventures in November 2022. Our guide was Salehe.
The tour included Tarangine NP, Lake Manyara NP, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti.

This was our first trip to Tanzania and we are happy we chose this company. Everything was so well organised by the company and the guide so we felt safe and welcommed at any time of the trip.

COMMUNICATION
The communication with Rose and Edward from the administration worked very good with short responsetime and even when we changed the flight time and airport of arrival they quickly adapted the arrangeres pick up.
To book the trip you have to transfer the cost of the trip to the company. Initially our bank blocked the transfer, but then Edward provided us with alternative ways to transfer and the it worked perfectly

VALUE
We payed about 5.700 USD for the trip for two persons and it was definately wort it.
By booking directly with Lionkingadventures saved us about 25% compared to booking via a travel agency in Norway.
If you have the possibility to book in “Luxury” class then it is woth it. Especially the Hotel Melia Serengeti was amazing.

ARRIVAL
We arrived at the Kilimanjaro airport and was greeted by a guide who drove ud to The Melia Hotel in Arusha for the first night. A very comfortable stay after a long flight.

DEPARTURE
On the last day Salehe dropped us of in Arusha Airport in perfect time for our next flight to Zanzibar

THE GUIDE SALEHE
On the second day we met our fantastic guide Salehe who was with us for the rest next five days.
He made the trip an amazing experience for us. He was eminent at the game drive in finding the animals and positioning us for the best sightings were we could be close to the animals.
He has a huge knowledge of both the flora and the fauna and we learned so much from him.
He also told us a about Tanzania and some local phrases which were very helpfull on our ongoing jouney in Tanzania.
He keeps the car in good shape and clean. The car was filled with water, sodas and food every day and he made sure we never ran out.
If you have the possibilty to have Salehe as your guide definately go for it. He really made the trip extraordinary for us.

GAME DRIVING
Our first game drive was after a couple of hours driving in Tarangine NP were we experienced close encounters with elephants and girafs among lots of zebras and other animals. So impressive to be two meters from a huge elephant.

The next day we drove for five hours to the absolut highlight of the trip, the massive Serengeti NP. On the way you pass Masai villages and impressive views of the Ngorongoro Crater so the drive itself was and impressive experience.

In the two days of game driving in Serengeti we experienced the absolut highlight of the trip - a female lion hunting and cathing a zebra 20 meters from our car. We could follow the lion sniking in on the zebras for 30 minutes before attacking the herd. An experience we will never forget.
In the Serengeti we also saw a leopard hiding in a bush ten meters from the car as a big experience. Impressive to have eye contact with such an animal.

Apart from more sightings of lions and leopards the Serengeti also gave us impressive experiences with groups of Hippo’s, zebras, girafs, wilderbeast, and lots of other animals.

Lion King Adventures is a great safari company with very helpful staff and superb guides
5/5

I booked my 6 day safari through Lion King Adventures because of their high Trip Advisor ratings. Let me just say that Rose ensured that all of my needs were met.
My safari was beyond expectation! My guide, Goodluck Martin was superb! He was knowledgeable, easy going reliable and patient. He made sure I saw all of my favorite animals, especially elephants and lions. I feel the tour was well priced and would not hesitate to use Lion King in the future.

Incredible Experience
5/5

Coming to Tanzania on safari with the Lion King Adventures was truly a trip of a lifetime. We cannot recommend the company, or the experience, enough. Our guide was David and he was wonderful. David drove us in his vehicle “Cheetah,” the safari jeep, and was an informative and accommodating guide. He made us right at home. All of the lodges were beautiful and unique. Seeing the animals and birds was incredible—we saw so much on the game drives and were blown away by how healthy all of the animals looked. Seeing them in the wild was a fabulous experience. And everyone we met in Tanzania was friendly and warm. If you are thinking about taking a safari to Africa we highly recommend Lion King Adventures. Ask for David!

Memorable tour
5/5

We booked online the safari tour with Lion King Adventures and from the very first email they showed up their professionalism that made us decide for this agency. The communication was clear and super detailed. The team provided all the information we needed to know and adviced us based on our preferences. Open to answer any question and very reactive in replying. From the very first moment we arrived in Tanzania they made us feel very welcome and at home. The service and the overall experience far exceeded our expectations. Mwita was our safari guide and he's simply amazing. He knows the parks, especially Serengeti park, as the back of his hand. He can spot any animal from very far away and he was always in radio contact with the other guides to know what was going on in the park in order to let us enjoy the safari at the fullest. I strongly recommend to book a safari tour with Lion King Adventures and to explicitly ask for Mwita as safari guide!

exceptional
5/5

From my first contact through to the completion of our safari the service was exceptional. Pendo answered all my questions and offered suggestions within 24 hours. When we had to reschedule due to a family emergency the Lion King team was very helpful. Our guide, Gilbert, was wonderful, knowledgeable, very competent, and accommodating to the needs of everyone in our group (12 year, 42 years, 75 years) . I would recommend this local, family owned business to everyone.
