Wonderful Mount Kilimanjaro experience with Suricata Safaris.
5/5

It was an amazing experience climbing Kilimanjaro with suricata Safaris. We were welcomed by Hilary at the airport, and driven to our accommodations for the night. On the day we began our climbing, we were met by a team of 21 people to help us with our 6 days Machame route. These men would eventually become more than just our care takers. They are a group of people with pioneering spirits and adventurous outlook on life. We all made it because of these guys, they catered to every need, they hauled our bags up and down the mountain, they were at our beckon calls when needed and most importantly, they were never without smiles on their faces. Kilimanjaro is tough, but these group of guys made us believe we could do it and we did. They never left our sides and they were there on the day we departed after completing the Uhuru Peak. There is a difference between the Suricata Safari team and others on the mountain, but that is something you have to see for yourself. I absolutely recommend you go with Suricata Safaris for you Kilimanjaro adventure.

Majestic Vastness of Serengetti---I'll always remember.
5/5

I've Traveled in Latin Am, Asia, Europe and Africa & I appreciated Hilary and the Suricata Guide-Driver and cook! Hilary, the owner was so hospitable, on-time, and thoughtful to us. His price was reasonable and yet he helped us in extra ways, like taking us to the shuttle bus to Nairobi, even though we had already paid him and he did not have to do this big favor for us! I enjoyed the safari---especially the majestic vastness of the Serengetti. Emmanuel, the driver/guide has amazing eyes for spotting animals and is kind and thoughtful towards his guests in the safari. Dionnis, the cook prepares really good food and it comes on time---a big contrast to the lackadasical service we experienced at even a supposed 5 star hotel in Arusha. If I could do it over again, I would arrange to spend 2 days and 2 nights in the Serengetti, and sacrifice Tanguire or Manyara during a 5 day safari.

Beautiful safari of northern Tanzania!
5/5

The owner of Suricata safari, Hilary is very friendly and helpful, he will make you feel super comfortable no time! We did a 5 days private tour safari in the norther parks: Tarangire, Serengeti e Ngorongoro. Hilary came to pick us up at Arusha airport and took care of our overnight accommodation in Arusha. The safari was beautiful! Our guide Floris, and our chef Mister Delicious were the best and really took care of us for all 5 days. I truly recommend Suricata Safari! Write to Hilary and he will organize your itinerary base on how many days you have and who you would like to see. The price is good, the jeeps are good and well maintained and the camp gear is also new and clean!

very friendly and knowledgeable about the animals the choice of the lodges were excellent
5/5

It was delightful to meet Hillary and Izikio at the Kilimanjaro airport. our safari started the next day in four days we visited Ngorongoro and Serengeti parks, very we had breaks for lunch and the packed lunches were OK. but the dinners at the lodges were very good the lodges were comfortable with hot and cold water .the roads are mainly bumpy if anyone has back problem this ride going to be really painful.
the night stay in Serengeti national park was unforgettable you can hear lions roar all night ,and sunrise and sunset are amassing it is a life experience not to be missed

Great experience!
5/5

We just finished a 5 day safari in serengeti, ngorongoro crater and tarangire national park and it was amazing! I was with my partner and we shared a jeep with 4 other persons (1 couple and 2 solo travellers). We arranged everything via Hillary, he was super helpful and did not mind answering all our questions several times. It was very easy to communicate with him via whatsapp before, during and after the trip.
Our driver/guide Mandela was a great spotter, we got to see all the big 5 (and the ugly 5!) several times during our time there. We slept in public campings which offered basic sanitary infrastructure, ideal for young travellers. Dionis was our chef, and every meal we were surprised about how good it was. The good dinner after a full day safari was really appreciated.
The overall organization was great, since our arrival at the airport everything was smooth and taken care of for us which allowed us to enjoy every day without worrying about any detail.

Thanks again Hilary, Mandela and Dionis for an unforgettable experience!

My sincere recommendations to anyone!
5/5

I found this company after going through hundreds of different ones. Still a relatively new company, but already had very good reviews on both safaribookings and tripadvisor. We also were on a very narrow schedule, as we booked our safari only about two weeks before and wanted to have our safari on particular dates. It also seemed to have very reasonable price compared to many others. After initial email, I found it convenient to chat with Hilary, the manager, in whatsapp. We had lots of conserns, such as my wife's restricted diet due to celiac disease, which ultimately was taken on to account unbelievably well. On every meal she could get her stomach beyond full, as could the rest of us, thanks to our brilliant young chef. Our crew was of good size, six tourists in one car. Our wonderful guide, Fred, felt more like a friend than a guide to have around in a good way. He would tell us anything we'd like to know, about Tanzania or related to safari. He sincerely seemed to enjoy his work. Also, when our car's spring once inevitably broke down, it could be fixed with a piece of wood in no time, and our itinerary would still hold. On our game drives in Ngorongoro and Serengeti, we were able to see every animal we could have imagined seeing (cheetah, leopard, rhino and heeps of lions, hyenas and so on). Only thing I would even consider changing is that due to my and my wifes busy schedule, we joined the group and went first to Serengeti and Ngorongoro, and after having seen all the animals in world class safaris, Tarangire NP felt a bit empty. This was also due to the season, as we went just after the rainy season, which is not the best to see big game. Luckily we could still get very close to a big pack of elephants. All in all, our safari exceeded our expectations, and I found it to have excellent price/quality ratio and brilliant for anyone looking for a five star experience on tight budget. Thank you Hilary and the crew!

SuperSafari Trip
5/5

I made a 6 day safaritrip with Suritaca Safaris and It was an excellent trip. My guide was Ezequier and also a cook went with us. We visited the Serengeti, the caldera of ngorongoro, the national park of Tiangare and the national park of Lake Manjare. Our guide Ezequier could tell us many interesting stories and facts about the wildlife as he was studying the tanzanian wildlife at the university. I could learn a lot about nature and also about myself and what the sentence “survival of the strongest” really means.
