5/5

We just spent 8 days with our amazing guide Wilson from Unlimited expeditions. It took us 10 seconds to realize how lucky we were to have a guide like that! Wilson started guiding in 1991 and is amongst the top 100 guide out of around 10000 with the most experience touring the multiple national parks of Tanzania. He is also an outstanding human, father of 3 biological kids and father of 10 orphans. He is definitely a Pilar in his community and beyond. Wilson will do anything possible to make you feel comfortable and happy. We asked many questions, sometime difficult, and he always have a detail answer and explain very well. He is very passionate about is job and a very hard worker. He wanted us to see everything from every angle. He suggested many times to start the game drive early to maximise the potentiel of seeing more and it worked very much. We truely had the chance to see everything during our multi days safari. We got close enough for amazing picture without getting too close to disturb the wildlife. Maybe, there is another guide as good or almost as good as him somewhere in the country but I'm 100% sure that it is not possible to find a better guide, a better soul to share that amazing experience as a team. We will never forget you Wilson and we are locking forward to tour Tanzania with you again! We will miss you! Angela and roger

Very cozy staff and well organized tour without any additional efforts to the costumer
5/5

We really enjoyed the safari and the hotels, we were always well received and the quality of the accommodation exceeded our expectations. We always choose premium options.
We were always accompanied from the moment we landed until we left the country, without having to worry about any transport or meals.
The guide was very friendly and committed.
It was great that we ended up in Serengeti as it was the place where we were able to observe the greatest diversity of animals.
We hired a photographer on the last day, a FourSeasons collaborator, who contributed to the portrayal of unforgettable experiences. He was also very friendly and helpful, greatly enriching our trip. We highly recommend Laurent Francis Mmassy.

We just successfully reach the summit of Africa yesterday with Soul of Tanzania and 15 members of an amazing team lead by Omary our main guide to reach the summit. Omary is an highly
skilled guide that reached the summit for the 363 times yesterday. We felt that he truely care for our safety, he was knowledgeable about everything related to the mountain and Tanzania, he is also a devoted father of 2 and pretty much the father of most porter and lot of guide with less experience on the mountain. He truely love his job. Sam,our assistant guide on the trip was also an important part of our success with his contagious energy and help at all time. Sam is in fact a licence guide so we felt lucky to have 2 amazing guides with us. Our cook Thom was also great listening to comment about the food and adapting to our sometime modified taste because of altitude gain. We add the chance to have Kassim with us that played a central role in our confort. He was listening to us and provided anything possible to make our summit possible. He event climbed to the summit with us as a third member of the team to reach the top with us. Kassim is 24, the world belong to this amazing men and we are happy he keeps studying at the guiding school. Gosheni was more high end then other agency. For exemple, in all our acclimatisation hike, Kassim for carrying a table with 2 chairs and food and beverage. We felt vip and customer from other agency eating a basic snack on a rock look at us with envy. We had the perfect time reaching the summit but more important then the summit we reached, we add the chance to get in contact with 15 individuals that made this adventure memorable. Big thanks to Omary (guide) Sam (guide) Thom (cook) Kassim (porter, waiter, Suisse knife of the trip) Issa (porter and toilet man) Ibrahim (porter) Mosses (porter) Baraka (porter) Salim (porter) Frank (porter) Nickson (porter) Samora (porter) Prosper (porter) Malkiadi (porter) Omary (porter) you guys are amazing and of course thanks to Soul of Tanzania

Honeymoon Safari
5/5

We just got back from our 7 day safari for our honeymoon and had such a great time. Booking this trip was a very smooth process, and everything is customizable. The hot lunch provided were delicious and plentiful. The accommodations we selected were clean and as described online.

Our guide was Levis Lewis (Mmeruu). He has many years of experience and is very knowledgeable on everything Tanzania. He was a great driver, knows all the roads, and will get your there in the quickest and safest way possible. We had such a great time with him in the many hours we spent together. He was quick to spot animals from such a far distance, and because of this we were able to see so many of them including the big 5. On our transfer to Kenya, the main road leading to the boarder was closed, but Mmeruu got us to the right spot at the exact time we needed to be there. Thank you so much!

Excellent safari
5/5

We were a group of 6 friends that had never been to Africa before.
When designing our safari we had very little idea of where to go. Sandy was extremely patient and very helpful when we were working out our trip. She always answered my many questions very quickly, no pressure just helpful advice.
Our driver/guide -James was brilliant- he really knew his stuff and was very accommodating of our needs. Thanks to James we saw all the animals and lots of animal behavior. We especially enjoyed watching the “kills” and the great migration of the wildebeest.
I have no hesitation in recommending Soul of Tanzania.

5/5

Our 30th wedding anniversary in Tanzania was an incredible experience. From the moment we contacted Soul of Tanzania, we got a quick and informative response. Marta was patient thru the whole process. Being in Tanzania for the first time we relied on her guidance. Thank you kindly to Marta for your recommendations and for your assistance with customizing our itinerary!
Special thanks to the Gosheni Dream team. Our guide Omari was simply amazing, his support thru out our 6 day in the mountains, was everything we needed to help us achieve our goal of successfully making it to the top of Kilimanjaro! Omari is very knowledgeable and supportive. Very impressed with his whole team, Thomas, Kasim and Omari the chef , all are very special, hard working people that left a long lasting impression on us. Omari is also so kind hearted and caring, he gave me his jacket and gloves, while I was struggling with the cold. From the bottom of our hearts thank you dream team for helping us achieve our dream and making our 30th anniversary so unforgettable. We are forever grateful to all of you, thank you for taking us safely to the roof of Africa!

The trip was absolutely amazing. Everything was well organised (including the hot lunches, rather than the packed box lunches) and Johnson, the driver and tour guide, was absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend!

5/5

From the moment we connected with Soul of Tanzania we knew we were in good hands. Our journey designer Sandy was patient and helpful in creating our trip and finding the right accommodation. We were so spoilt by our accommodations throughout the trip, the hospitality was unforgettable.
Our safari guide, Salum, was phenomenal. Quiet and kind at first, but he proved to be knowledgeable and in the end “Mr Right Place, Right Time” who spoiled us with animal sightings.
We chose the Living with Lions safari, and it was perfect for our first time safari experience.

Unforgettable first safari with the best tour operator
5/5

We embarked on an unforgettable journey through the heart of Tanzania and Kenya, all expertly orchestrated by the exceptional team at Soul of Tanzania. From the moment we connected with Jose, our tour organizer, we knew we were in capable hands. Amidst a sea of quotes from various tour operators in the region, Jose's unparalleled dedication and attention to detail stood out effortlessly. Any question was answered promptly and professionally.

Our adventure commenced in the vibrant city of Arusha, where we were seamlessly transported from the airport to our first destination. Over the following days, we were treated to a mesmerizing exploration of the region's natural wonders. Our itinerary took us through the breathtaking landscapes of Tarangire, the awe-inspiring Ngorongoro Crater, and the boundless beauty of both Central and Northern Serengeti. The game drives were really awesome. We saw the big five and more. At the Mara River we experienced the wilderbeest crossing twice.

A pivotal highlight of our expedition was the enchanting balloon ride along the Mara River, an experience that transported us beyond the realms of ordinary reality. The seamless transition from Kogatende Airstrip to the Kenyan border was a testament to the meticulous planning and coordination by the Soul of Tanzania team. Effortlessly crossing the border with the guidance of a seasoned driver, we seamlessly ventured into the depths of the Maasai Mara for three remarkable days.

Each accommodation was handpicked with precision, offering not just comfort but a glimpse into the warm hospitality of the region. Our driver, Simon, not only expertly navigated the terrain but also became our knowledgeable guide, regaling us with captivating tales about the diverse wildlife and the surrounding landscapes. His thoughtful gesture of preparing delectable lunches, accompanied by a glass of fine wine, added an extra touch of luxury to our already extraordinary journey.

Our first safari adventure was a revelation, and the expertise of a specialist like Jose and the unwavering support of Simon in Tanzania and Nick in Kenya, ensured that it won't be our last. Soul of Tanzania not only curated an experience but crafted a lasting memory that will remain etched in our hearts. Thank you, Jose, Simon, Nick and everyone else involved in the team for the impeccable execution and for granting us an experience that transcended the boundaries of the ordinary.

Excellent combination of safari and local exposure

We specially enjoyed our tour at Materuni Waterfall on the slopes of Kilimanjaro. The coffee tour experience with Michael and his friends is totally recommendable, and ask for Michael’s wife food and delicious wishes.
