Excellent service, fast response, outstanding guide, totally recommended

From the moment I asked for a quote for a safari in Tanzania, the team of Lion King were very kind and responsive, explaining everything with details. They helped me before and during our trip, always with the best disposition. Once in the safari everything went perfect. Our guide Saleh was very kind, always asking if we needed anything, explaining us everything we asked, he really knows a lot regarding history in Tanzania, animals and has an incredible sight. We always managed to take us to the best spots to watch animals.
The hotels and lodges booked by the company are among the best and are totally worth it. I really recommend booking your safari experience in Tanzania with Lion King, you will no regret it.

Amazing experience with an incredible, flexible guide!

Everything about our safari experience with Lion King Adventures was amazing. From our first inquiry email (we had a response within 8 hours) to being dropped off at the airport, Lion King Safari made every aspect of our safari amazing. Our safari (6 day/5 night) was tailor made for us. They kept in contact with us via email up until the day before we arrived. We were picked up on time at the airport (they never kept us waiting!). Everyone we communicated with was super nice and friendly! Khalifa, our safari guide, was incredible, always professional and able to answer every single one of our questions. James, the owner of Lion King Adventures, knows what he’s doing. His experience in the industry shows as he chooses his guides carefully and keeps itineraries manageable and flexible. Every park we visited was beautiful and offered something unique. We were lucky enough to see the Big 5, but also enjoyed learning about each park and the different parts of Tanzania. We would hands down recommend booking a safari with them and we hope to book another one with them in the future! Thanks James for giving us an experience we will NEVER forget!

5 days safari- a lifetime experience

Although I initially contacted many tour operators I very soon concluded that lion king was the best.
The communication with them was excellent. Easy and into the point trying to answer the many questions I had. Although we were talking for some time and the days were pretty close to the safari date lion king never tried to push or claim the payment instead they were trying their best to facilitate the requests that me and my friend had. They were flexible and helpful with questions and needs we had and not only in regards to the safari.I also appreciated the fact that they indicated their opinion. We were told that Tarangire was not very attractive in February and many other tour operators agreed with our initial proposal of skipping tarangire whereas -thankfully-lion king insisted that we should visit it. Is very important to feel that you can trust somebody you have only talked to through emails/phone and that you are supposed to transfer such a considerable amount of money.
And Lion King excelled in that.
During the arrangement phase I talked with Wilberd through emails and James on the phone. Both very kind and with the type of attitude that ensures that everything will be fine.
And the day of the safari arrived. And Salehe -our guide- came to pick us from our hotel.
Salehe turned out to be the superstar of the trip. Kind, respectful and trying his best to meet all our needs and make us feel comfortable. The car was always clean even after a very busy game drive day ! Salehe would answer all our questions and he was like a live Wikipedia for anything in regards to plants, animals etc.
The fact that it was a private tour made it very easy for us to adjust our game drive plans on the way based on what we liked the most.
We visited all big national parks (tarangire, Serengeti central, ngorongoro/ndotu, the crater and lake manyara). They were all AMAZING in a different way. Different landscape and animals. We also got to see the migration of the wildbeast in ndotu.
As a personal opinion if you only have 4 days and need to skip 1 of the above I would say lake manyara, but that is only a personal preference and maybe is dependable on the time of the year.
Salehe was very good in spotting the animals from very far away and would bring us so close to the them that we couldn't wish for more.
We had middle range accommodation. We stayed at elleins tree lodge for 2 nights and in self contained tents for the other 2. All accommodation types were excellent in their own way for what they were supposed to offer.Food was also very nice.
Salehe was also a very good driver which is very important considering how much time is spent inside the car.
I highly recommend Lion King adventures and Salehe for the safari trip in northern Tanzania.

Couldn't ask more for a Safari!!!

The overall experience was 10 out of 10. Our guide, Saleh, was really nice and fun guy to talk to as well as an excellent driver. He was giving explanations about animals, trees, the parks... everything. The jeep was being cleaned every day and ready with water and food to start the day. The places we spent the nights were quite high quality as well. No words to describe the one inside Serengeti.
We went to Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara. All of them amazing. We managed to see the big 5 and much more. Easy to recommend 'Lion King Adventures' to everyone.
The communication with them was easy and full of information since the first email. We did the payment from Sweden in two lots. This was a bit scary but as the Lion King office was really easy to communicate with and they were letting us know as soon as the money was reaching them, all the experience went smoothly.

Thanks for making our dream come true!

Many thanks for this wonderful trip. Everything was perfectly organized. Communication beforehand was always immediate and precise. Mid-range accomodations on tour were chosen very well. The tented camp experiences were extraordinary.
And, this service was more than topped by our friendly, warmhearted, knowledgable, gentle and funny guide Ossi. Asante sana. He was always on the right spot at the right time. We finally completed our Big Five and had so many more extraordinary animal observations! It was a pleasure to spend those 6 days with Ossi and learn not only a lot about Tanzania's wonderful nature (ina pendesa) or about the thousands of various animals (ina pendesa tena) but also some Swahili (kila kitu poa?). It couldn't have been a better match. And by the way, Ossi is an excellent driver - which is very relevant on these "massage roads" :-)
These 6 days were definitely an experience which will stay in our memory forever. And when we come back to Tanzania, we will for sure book again with kind (!) Lion King Adventures AND with Ossi. We can also recommend to anyone to book through Lion King.
Asanta sana tena for this unforgettable time!

Outstanding organization, guide, attention to detail, trip of a lifetime!

This was truly a trip of a lifetime and much of that is because of Lion King adventures. They organized everything and Goodluck was an incredible guide. We saw everything. Bucket list item check.
