Superb Organisation

Excellent experience! The main guide was amazing and was always on the look out for wildlife - frequently spotting animals we would never have seen. The food was also superb given we were camping. The team was very helpful in organisation and transfers. Would definitely recommend as was very reasonably priced compared with other tours. Only comment would be nice if the guide would sit with us to eat!

Unforgettable Experience!

My photo safari with Suricata was absolutely phenomenal! All my expectations were exceeded. I chose a budget level/camping package and I was completely comfortable. Musa was our chef and everything he prepared was delicious and plentiful! Fredy was our most excellent, extremely knowledgeable guide for 3 days; I learned so much, I had to start taking notes! Swaleh gave a lovely walking tour of Arusha. Hilary, the owner was very easy to communicate with via email, while planning my trip, and finally Mr T was a great driver and ambassador for Suricata. Overall a fabulous operation that I highly recommend!

Best tour ever!

It was a great experience with Suricata! Our driver-guide is Frederick. He brought us to several national parks and we saw so many animals! We were lucky enough to witness elephants, lions and cheetahs. I would definitely return to Tanzania again! Thank you Suricata and Frederick!

Materuni waterfall. Wonderful expertise

Highly recommend this day tour to see the Materuni waterfall. The waterfall is really beautiful. The hike to and from the waterfall felt really good after four days of safari with Suricata (also amazing). I wasn’t sure what to expect from a “coffee experience” but it ended up being really entertaining, and the coffee was delicious. Lunch was the best meal I’ve had on this trip. I especially loved the banana soup! Singing and dancing with the Chaga people was my favourite experience in Tanzania. Kudos to my excellent guides, Mr T ( day trip) and Frederick (safari)

Machame route Kilimanjaro - 6 days

We had a truly amazing 6-day hike on the Kilimanjaro (Machame route) with Suricata safaris! Everything was so well organized and our group of 3 people was surounded by a pleasant crew! During the hikes we were accompanied by 2 really nice guides Freddy an Alex: they know a lot about the mountain and shared their experience and stories which was always lovely to hear! They made sure the hikes were on a good pace for the group: pole pole is one of the key things to remember! In addition, they inform you well about everything you need and what the plan is for the next day, to be sure you are prepared! I enjoyed how they would motivate and support us. But more so, during the summit night where the hight caused me some problems, they got me through the difficult moments to reach the top and go back to the camp afterwards! I am grateful for your help! They want everyone to succeed while also taking into account your health and safety!
Also thank you to John who served us food an drinks and woke us up every morning with a big smile and a cup of coffee! He made sure all your needs are met and was always stand by to help you out if needed.
Furthermore, we had a great cook Gasto creating delicious meals for breakfast lunch and diner, which were also very varied! Our group consisted of 3 people and some of us had allergies or intolerances and they took great care of that too which we really appreciated!
Overall, the whole team was very friendly and they do an amazing job: it is impressive how they carry all the luggage, food, water, tents and other logistics. They literally take good care of everything. Really hard workers who are so grateful for the opportunities they get! Sometimes we could hangout in their tent and share stories, which I really loved because this way we could get to know the people better who made this trip such a lifetime experience! In short, I would recommend it to everyone!
Thank you, asante sana, Suricate safaris for the beautiful memories. Hakuna matata!
Big hugs, Bo

We got more than we expected

We were absolutely delighted with Suricata!
The communication in advance ran smoothly via WhatsApp. All questions and requests were always considered.
The safari itself was well organized. We slept in the tent for 4 nights. There were foam mattresses, a pillow and warm sleeping bags. The campsites were fantastic! Zebras roaming around the tents at night and a great view over Ngorongoro Crater. The food was sufficient, varied and very tasty. We felt very comfortable and safe with our guide Lewis. He explained a lot to us and always tried to take us to the best places. We've seen the Big Five! We can only recommend Suricata Safari. Thank you for this unforgettable adventure

Unforgettable experience

Very good tour company! We chose a five-day trip to four national parks, each with a different charm, while we saw a lot of animals with an experienced safari guide, and it’s very lucky that we saw cheetahs hunting, lion hunting. The food and accommodation was also very good. An unforgettable experience!

A trip of a lifetime

We had a great 5 day tour with Surigata. The booking was made via email and everything was organized in a timely manner. Also, Hillary, the manager, was always fast with answering our questions. The tour included the airport transfers, all meals during the safari and a double room in nicely selected hotels or lodges. The highlight of the tour (besides the parks and all the animals) was our guide Mandela! He knew always where to go and was able to explain a lot about the habits of the different animals.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip that we will remember for a long time!
