In a word, empathetic. Gama our tour operator was outstanding in guiding us throughout our Safari.

Navigating a different culture from one that you are familiar is always a challenge. Losing your luggage in a foreign country is especially challenging.
Lion King Adventures stepped-in with phone calls, transportation and paper work to solve our problem.
The serve that we received was impeccable.

Best Safari experience!

We just spent 6 days on Safari (incl.: parks of Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti) and was the best trip we ever made!
Our guide, Gilbert, was extremely knowledgable about the ecosystem, explaining us everything with a lot of detail. Also, he was very experienced in finding the best spots to observe the different animals, as well as a very skilled driver through the different terrains of the parks. We highly recommend Lion King Adventures for their attention to detail, professionalism and wonderful staff.

Our nine-day trip exceeded all expectations. Everyone we worked with at Lion King Adventures was top-notch, giving us invaluable help from the early planning stages through the end of the trip. Nickson, Pendo, and Anna were patient and informative as we tailored our itinerary, fielding all manner of questions and setting us up with an amazing safari-- one with a great balance between comfort and bush experience. When it came to the wildlife, our guide Freddy was unbeatable. With twelve years as a guide, he knew all the ropes of the Northern Tanzania safari circuit: the terrain, the animals, the guides, the roads, the camps... everything. He was motivated, eagle-eyed, a great driver, and determined to give us the incredible experience we ended up with. These were full, full days, and somehow each day was my favorite. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A fabulous six days on safari in Tanzania

We spent 6 days on safari with Lion King in various NPs in Tanzania. We had a fabulous time. Gilbert, our driver guide, was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants that we saw on our adventure. He way beyond what we expected and made sure that we saw all of the wildlife that we wanted see. He was punctual, made sure that all of the logistics for our tour went very smoothly and was a great guy to be around for a week. Our accommodations and the food we were served were top notch. We highly recommend Lion King if you want to have an excellent safari experience.

Our tourguides, Goodluck and our private chef Careem, were great. They did all that we could enjoy our safari. We definitely also had the best tour operator. We had complementary drinks, really good food, a really good car and a good overall organisation.
Goodluck really loves his country and nature! You can think about a better tourguide. He loves nature and respects all animals. He knows everything about animals behaviour and also pays high attention that we and others respect nature and their natural habitat.
Careem cooked us sich delicious food every night and also for lunch! He has great skills and is such a nice person. We really enjoyed staying with Lion King and Kind highly recommend this great tour operator!!

An luxurious experience with a great team!

I was quite hesitant when preparing for this trip, as this is an once in a life time experience and there are so many choice in the market. LionKing is the most responsive (literally get back to me in an hour in every email communication) and gave me the best suggestions on the itinerary! I immediate feel their professionalism on the first day. My guide Yuseph has a passion for wild life, he is always explaining the animals' habit, behavior, strength to me. Also he love to spend as much time as possible when we spot some interesting animals. He is open to suggestions on adjusting the route and time to better fit my personal interest. He is keen to know how the food and accommodation were (of course they are all excellent!) and will make improvement base on my comments. I saw all the beautiful animals that I wish to see, with a very good angle every time, and took cinematic photos and videos along the way.
I really appreciate the efforts the team put on my trip, I feel they really love what they do, that makes a difference. Would definitely recommend to my friends!

Gilbert in the BEST Guide/Driver and Lion King Adventures is the BEST tour company. Go with them!

Lion King Adventures was wonderful!!! Anna took care of everything until the point when Gilbert met us for the start of our Safari. She handled everything seamlessly and the value for the mid-range safari was excellent. The best part though was Gilbert!!! He took care of everything and make sure we saw ALL animals including a Rhino and her baby! We had a Cheetah climb on our Land Cruiser and then watched as it stalked and take down a Grand Gizzel, watched a Hippo fight right in front of us, 3 Wildebeest Migration crossings, lions mating, Leopards in trees with their kill, too many Giraffes, Zebras, Elephants and other animal to name!! Everything ran so smoothly, and Gilbert is an expert at spotting the wildlife and makes sure we saw them up close and personal!! Accommodations were wonderful and the food delicious!! Use Lion King for your safari and ask for Gilbert to be your guide/driver. You will have a wonderful safari experience!

Incredible experience

We spent 4 days in Serengeti and Ngorongoro. I have to admit we might have been a bit lucky, but we literally saw everything just within the first day -> 3 lionesses killing a buffalo, crocodiles eating a dead hippo, pride of lions with 7 cubs walking a playing right next to our car and so much more... Really amazing experience made even better by our knowledgeable guide Gilbert. Highly recommended.

Fabulous experience with Gilbert as our guide

One of my friends wanting to go on a safari, did extensive research and found Lion King Adventures, a local agency, which was an important factor. Together with Anna, they organized a fabulous all-inclusive safari for our group of 5.
We were extremely lucky to have Gilbert as our guide and driver and we could not have had a better one. Gilbert knew all the good spots, when and where to go and what was a good time to leave. All this while being respectful of the wildlife and the environment, which we really appreciated. Gilbert was kind and discreet in taking care of us and managing the difficult roads and having the “African Massage” be as smooth as possible.
What an extraordinary experience, thank you Gilbert for your contribution to making this such a memorable trip.
