Trip of a lifetime

My parents and I took a 5 day safari through Tarangire, Ngorogoro Crater, Serengeti and Lake Manyara. Had a wonderful time that surpassed all expectations. We were very satisfied with all parts of our trip including the itinerary, lodgings, communications, etc.

Great experience

We spent four days in Tanzania, starting in Lake Manyara Park, through Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and finishing in Tarangire Park. Each of them is unique and offers different experiences. From our point of view Ngorongoro Crater is the best one. Amazing views and many herds of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes. For those considering only three days safari, Lake Manyara could be omitted however it is also nice place.
The company crew is very patient and client oriented. Our special appreciation goes to Pendo and Anna for answering hundreds of our questions in kindly and professional manner.
Our guide and companion was Peter. He is - half-joking, half-serious - a local celebrity:-) everyone knows him, other guides, park rangers and police officers, too. It should be also noted that he was very open for our suggestions and wishes.
Last but not least, accommodation and meals. Both places, Serengeti Heritage Tented Camp and Endoro Lodge were great. Comfortable rooms and beds and very tasty food.

A perfect experience for me and my family. This is an exceptional company to travel with!

We really had a perfect experience from beginning to end. Lion King was very helpful as we decided on the itinerary and timing. They selected great accommodations and the trip cost was quite reasonable, especially for a private safari. The airport transfers couldn't have been easier. Our vehicle was great, although we learned that EVERY operator uses the same type of vehicle (a modified Toyota LandCruiser). The most important aspect of the trip was the quality of the driver/guide. Ours was Oswald and he was exceptional - friendly, accommodating, and highly knowledgeable of the geography and animals. He was very skilled at spotting animals, we saw tons! Since we were traveling with a child, I particularly noticed that he was a very calm, patient and safe driver. From beginning to end Oswald was laser focused on giving us the best possible experience, he was a real pro. We chose Lion King because of their amazing reviews, and I am now very pleased to be writing one myself.

Wonderful and relaxing experience with Lion King Adventures

We decided to book our safari withouth the support of a travel agency. WIth Lion King Adventures it has been very easy to do so given their effectivenes in providing us information and options on how to organize our safari and given they have always been in touch with us before the safari. Once in Tanzania, and given one of our luggages was lost by Ethiopian Airlines, Lion King Adventures staff has been very supportve to have the luggage back. They have gone to take it in Arusha while we were in Serengeti and brought it to us. Concerning the Safari itself, our guide (Saleh) and our chef (Iousuf) have been really great in taking care of us thus ensuring we had wonderful experience.
I really recomend Lion King Adventures to all those who whish to do a safari.

Experience with Lion King Adventures

We had to finalize everything in less than one week, and the team of Anna Smith and Wilbard made sure that we were able to pull this off. Both Anna and Wilbard were available 24X7 to help us plan the itinerary, finalize the hotels, and assure us that everything would go well. Not only this, Wilbard’s expert advice that we skip Western Serengeti and spend two days in the Northern Part was beneficial and shows that they know what they are talking.

Everything from our drive to hotels was immaculate. All the hotels were as planned; check-in took minimal time because of Lion King and our movement and transition from one hotel to another and one part of the Serengeti to the second was flawless. We can never forget Anna’s calm demeanor and support she provided us.

We truly believe we could not have chosen a better Travel Company.

We had the Best Guide – my friend Saleh

We spent seven days of the Safari with Saleh as our driver, guide, and now a friend. He has a pleasant personality and is an honest, kind, humble, and trustworthy human being. He is very professional, carries a great passion for his work, and leaves no stone un-turned to make sure that the client gets the best of the experience during the safari.

We saw all the big five during our safari, Mara River crossing and also saw Lion going for a kill that is a rare sight. He has an excellent eye for spotting animals, experience of animal behavior, and encyclopedic knowledge of African Birds. We were always in the right place at the right time because of which we never missed any action. We would not have been possible without our guide friend Saleh.

Learning – Safari is all about the Travel Company you choose and the guide you go with. We are so happy that we went with Lion King Adventures and Saleh as our guide.

I really thank Anna Smith, Wilbard, James and Saleh for making this an experience of our lives.

Thank you so much Lion King!

We did the 7 day migration Safari with Lion King. It took a long time to decide on a company to choose and in the end chose Lion King Adventures. We are so so glad we did. Pre safari the contact was great. Nothing was a problem, no question to silly. The organised transport to get us to Arusha. The price included soft drinks, water and a beer each lunch time. Such a nice touch! The accomodation organised was absolutely incredible. Ozzi was our guide and he was incredible. A great sense of humour, great english, very cautious and respectful and nothing was ever a problem, he was willing to do anything (almost) to ensure we had the best safari experience. We highly recommend Lion King Adventures and will be recommending them to everyone we know coming to Tanzania to do a Safari and hopefully we will be back one day! Thanks Lion King!

Awesome experience, great guides, great service.

This is a great tour operator - we had a short notice trip, they fit us in and our guide (James) was stellar. I would recommend them 10 times in a row to others wanting to do a tour in Tanzania. They picked us up at the airport, met us at the hotel, did a great job on safari, and even coordinated a car back to Nairobi for us. We were traveling with our two kids (16/15) and they made it fun for them as well.

Safari trucks were in good shape, clean, and we had no issues.

Great Team, Reasonably Priced!

My girlfriend and I visited Tanzania in Jul'19 and had Lion King Adventures (LKA) as our Tour Operator. The team was very professional and prompt right from initial responses and helped us tailor our itinerary based on what we wanted to see/do and our budget. Although we had reached out to 10+ operators, we picked LKA because of their promptness, quoted prices and flexibility in terms of accommodating our preferences. During the tour itself, the accommodation, the vehicle, the food and the team (guide and chef) were as described in the initial conversations and were actually critical to our having a great trip. The guide was fluent in English, very knowledgeable and most importantly keen to show us the best the Safari could offer which meant we didn't have to push him at any point. The chef was really kind and adjusted meals to our preferences and dietary restrictions. They were both very professional and polite. Even after the trip, LKA had us visit the office and give feedback and suggestions which was a really nice closing touch. All in all, Africa Safari is a fairly expensive trip for most people and it was great to work with an experienced, professional and committed team that made sure it was all worth it. Definitely recommend them!

Fabulous! Mid June is a great time of year to go, lush green in some parts, not so many tourists

Booked the 8 day best of the Serengeti tour with Lion King Adventures - highly recommend this tour & the company. Very professional, good communication, excellent service. Anna answered all our queries very promptly & ensured the payment arrangements were secure. Ossie was a fantastic guide, good company & knowledgeable; kept the van very clean. Lodges were all excellent. Visited 4 National parks - Lake Manyara, Tangarire, Serengeti & Ngongoro Crater - all different & good to see different landscapes with some different animals. If you're going on an African safari you can't beat Tanzania, go for at least 5 days & book with Lion King Adventures!
