Beautiful memories of honeymoon in Africa with Lionking adventure ^^

Thanks to the Lion King Adventure Travel Agency, we were able to enjoy our first African honeymoon in comfort.
We will remember forever the memories of beautiful moments we have experienced in Africa.
And that was also really good for fixing the schedule we wanted.
Thank you Lionking Adventure ^^

As my teen sons both said, "the best week and the best experience of their lives"

I had no idea what to expect, but the Lion King team delivered more than I could have imagined. We had a spreadsheet of 15 options and choice to contact a few that were headquartered in Tanzania and rated by the national tour board. We then compared prices and mid-range options, and went with LKA because they had the best communication and most flexibility. We were a bit nervous sending $ overseas to some unknown group, but when David appeared at the airport to collect us, we were relieved, and then embarked on the trip of a lifetime. The accommodations in Arusha and Karatu were better than we could have imagined. Eileen's Trees Inn in Karatu may be my favorite inn on any trip ever. The hosts were welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Our tour guide, James, contacted ETI in advance to arrange a cake for our 12 yo son's birthday! James - what can I say. He was patient, professional, informative. He knew where to go, how to time our travels, and patiently adjusted our travels to suit our requests. He knew a ton about the animals, the botany, and the Maasai culture. We peppered him with questions and he always had an answer. Plus, he was a fantastic driver, navigating crazy rocky dirt roads and fording streams. Thank you Anna for providing us a perfect itinerary, thank you David for transporting us to and from the airport, and THANK YOU James for fulfilling our trip of a lifetime!

We can only advise you to let Lion King guide you during your stay !!!
Despite the last minute, they organized a dream trip, made to measure, according to our desires and our expectations and know that we were not disappointed, quite the contrary!
Very responsive, very good advice, attentive, effective, available and very professional!
Nothing to say, we had an unforgettable trip and this, thanks to Lion King and especially, a huge thank you to our duo: Gilbert and Ali!
Thank you a thousand times and I hope to see you soon because we hope to come back soon

Amazing Safari with amazing people

We booked a 5 day Safari with LionKingAdventures and we loved it!!!

But lets start from the beginning...
After we decided to do a Safari we really had some difficulties to find the right tour operator. With LionKingAdventures we had a good feeling from the beginning. The communication was easy and prompt and Anna gave us a good feeling for transferring so much money to foreign people in a far away country.
A few weeks later we arrived at the Kilimanjaro Airport and our personal driver came to pick us up. The first night we stayed at Outpost lodge, which is really nice and cozy. Then in the morning of our second day we started our Safari. Our driver Swahele came to pick us up. Our luggage was safely stored in the car and the journey began. The first day we did a game drive through Tarangire national park, where we already saw a lot of animals. In the evening we stayed outside the park in a tent village. Our personal cook was already waiting for us with a prepared meal. In general the food was really great. But unfortunate for us a bit too europeanized. If you talk to Anna in advance you can organize with her that you get more local food (or veggie etc.).
The next days on our trip were just as amazing as the first one with our personal highlight of being two days in Serengeti. On all days we were taken care of just perfectly. We have seen the big 5 and plenty of other animals. All we can say is go and check it out yourself, it is definitively worth it!! And with LionKingAdventures you have the best choice of a tour operator as you can have.

All the best from Julia and Max

Perfect safari with amazing people

Truly a great company with fantastic people. We did a 5 day / 4 nights camping safari in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Our guide, Saleh, was nice, caring and knowledgeable about all the animals and their behaviour. He understood our expectations very quickly and made sure we had the kind of experience we wanted. Our chef, Yusuph, was amazing and so creative! He cooked a variety of delicious meals (the best food we had in the entire country!!!). He is also such a funny and kind person. Finally, it was reasuring to get detailed information and quick replies from Anna while we were planning the safari (which we booked ourselves without a travel agency). We warmly recommend this company!

Great mix of local knowledge and attention to detail

We recently had our first African adventure, which comprised of a five day safari and time in Arusha. We traveled with extended family and my 4yr old son. We were equally excited and apprehensive about our trip to Tanzania, we had no experience of Africa previously and weren’t sure what to expect.

Lion King delivered an experience that far surpassed our expectations! Anna’s attention to detail before we got there and during our stay meant we didn’t have to think about anything. She requested things for us that we hadn’t even thought we needed, she checked and double checked things were in place. The accommodation/transfers/safari intenery were all tailored made to meet our interests and wishes.

While on safari James and Ozie were the most fantastic guides. They amazed us with there ability to spot things that seemed invisible to us. They picked up quickly what animals we loved and made sure to point them out. They also suggested a great variety of game drives which took us to a real selection of sights. The found us the big 5 which was amazing but they also showed us the migration, the secret watering holes and the very changing scenery. We kind of followed their lead in terms of ideas of places to visit and I’m so glad we did.

The overriding thing that stuck us about both Lion King and Tanzania generally was how welcoming everyone was to our 4yr old son. He was like a superstar for the duration of the holiday, nothing was too much trouble and people were so welcoming and kind to him (and all of us). He, like us, had a holiday of a lifetime thanks to the efforts of Lion King.

We had an amazing and unforgettable 3-day safari with our Lionking-guide David.

The organization of the safari was very easy. Our E-Mail-contact Anna was very helpful. She always answered within one day and could provide us all the information we needed.

We visited the Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Tarangire National Park during our 3-day safari. We saw all the animals we wanted to see (except the leopard). Lionking booked mid-range hotels, which were on a good European standard and fully sufficient.

David was a very friendly, communicative and interested tour guide. When arriving in Arusha, he was already waiting at the airport, picked us up every morning at the hotel on time and accompanied us until the entrance of the airport at the end of the trip.

He was part of the probably best holidays we ever had. We definitely recommend David and the Lionking-Team.

Amazing trip!

We have just finished a 4 night, 5 day safari with lion king adventures and it was totally amazing. Before deciding on what national parks we should include we got a lot of very useful advise and tips from Anna. As Anna’s first language is English and she is a British woman living in Africa she was able to provide a lot of information on all elements of the trip. The combination of Anna and James is perfect as James is Tanzanian has been guiding sarfaris in Tanzania for over 16 years.
We were a family party of 7 and our youngest traveller was my nephew who is 4 years old, up to my mum in her 60s and the safari met all our needs and exceeded our dreams and expectations. We had two guides and two jeeps for our sarfari James and Ozzie, both guides were brilliant. They were both very knowledgeable about the animals, birds and landscapes. No amount of questions were too many!! One thing I really liked is that discussed with you each day what you wanted to do, what animals you wanted to look for to really tailor the safari for you.
We started by visiting Tanangire National Park and saw elephants, lions, zebra, baboons, giraffe to name a few! Then moved on to the Serengeti which was very different and just as I had pictured the savannah. James and Ozie managed to find us buffalo, a lion cub (approx one month old), leopard, cheetah along with families of giraffes and huge herds of wilderbeast! We ended the safari in the ngorongoro crater and saw a rhino and a lion kill!!!!!
All accommodation was recommended my Anna and was superb exspecially loved the views from Kubu kubu and the Ngorongoro Wildlife lodge.
We finished the trip with 4 nights in Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge, from here Anna arranged for us to spend a day with the local community. Our guide clemency was a lovely man, and very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a local walk, a cooking lesson and lunch in a village home, I would highly recommend this as a great way to end your African experience the lodge is beautiful and meeting the local people was very special.
I really can stress enough how Anna, James and Ozie made my lifelong dream come to true and smash my expectations. It was truest amazing, out of this world experience! Thank you all.

Our dream African Safari became a reality thanks to Lion King Adventures!!!

We dreamed of going on an African Safari for years and was so excited when we found Lion King Adventures because of their affordable tours. From the beginning, Anna communicated with us and made it simple and easy to plan our dream safari for my husband's 30th birthday trip. She answered all questions in a timely manner and accommodated us in every way possible, from accommodations, meal requests, and places to visit while on our safari. When we arrived in Tanzania, everything was seamless, with being picked up from the airport, to meeting our tour guide, Ozzy, and our chef, Karim, on the first day of our safari. We have so many great memories with Ozzy as our tour guide. He was adventurous, friendly, well-educated on the animals and area, helped us when we needed anything, and was able to get us up close to every animal we wanted to see. We were blessed to be able to see all the wildlife we dreamed of and saw many animals in action, understanding the "Circle of Life." Great job to our chef, Karim, who made amazing traditional meals everyday for us. His cooking abilities are top-rated and that is coming from my husband, who cooks gourmet meals daily. We will always remember and cherish our time with Ozzy and Karim and were sad to leave them on our last day in Africa. We have become friends and are thankful to have many beautiful photos and videos of our safari in Tanzania to remember our time. We would highly recommend using Lion King Adventures for your African Safari and you will be very blessed to have Ozzy as your tour guide and Karim as your chef! Love you guys and hope to see you again one day.
