Amazing Safari
5/5

We booked a five day safari including Tarangire National Park, Manyara National Park, Serengeti and Ngorongoro National Park and chose the tented lodging option.

In a group of six tourists we started the safari the next morning. Our guide Louis did a great job. He was really knowledgeable about the animals and brought us around safely. He was able to spot even the most hidden animals so we could see all of the big 5! For some of the days we were accompanied by a chef who cooked great lunches for us.

We stayed at the Suricata Boma lodge for two nights. This Lodge was just incredible - maybe even the nicest place I have ever stayed in! The tented lodges we stayed in were also beautiful. We always had a hot shower after the game drive, comfortable beds and delicious dinners.

Overall we are really satisfied with the safari! It was even better than expected. Thank you very much for that incredible experience.

5/5

"Silas and Salim were the perfect safari guides for our trip to Arusha National Park, Tarangire, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti. They were both knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate about wildlife. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a safe and enjoyable experience.

We saw all of the Big Five on our safari, including lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffaloes. Silas was an excellent wildlife spotter and he was able to find animals that we would have never seen on our own. He was also very knowledgeable about the animals and the parks. He told us interesting facts about the animals and their behavior.

Salim was an amazing chef. He prepared delicious meals using fresh, local ingredients. He also took into account our dietary restrictions. We never went hungry on our safari!

Both Silas and Salim were very friendly and accommodating. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. They were always happy to answer our questions and help us in any way they could.

Silas is a very patient and experienced guide. He was able to find animals that we would have never seen on our own, even when they were well-camouflaged.
Salim is a very creative and talented chef. He was able to prepare delicious meals using a variety of ingredients, even when we had specific dietary restrictions.
Both Silas and Salim are very passionate about wildlife conservation. They told us about the work that they do to protect the animals in the parks that we visited.
They are both very funny and charming people. They kept us entertained throughout the safari with their jokes and stories. We had an outstanding time on our safari with Silas and Salim.

We were also very impressed with the overall organization of our safari. Suricata Safaris took care of everything, from arranging our additional tours and accommodation to arranging our transfers and activities. We didn't have to worry about a thing, which made our trip even more enjoyable. A special shoutout to Mr. T, Ally, and Hilary Chrispine.

Overall, we had an outstanding safari experience with Suricata Safaris. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a safari in Tanzania."

Great service on fantastic 4 days camping safari
5/5

My wife and I went on a 4-day group safari with Suricata Safaris going to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. The tour was well-organized from start to finish. We were picked up at Arusha Airport and taken to a hotel in Arusha the day before beginning the trip (this service and hotel are included) where we were met by our guide Edgar who explained to us what was going to happen the next four days. Edgar was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the enrtire tour, and he succeeded in guiding us to see almost every animal we could have wanted, incl lions, cheetahs with cubs, leopard, elephants, hyenas, almost every species of antilope, girafes, two rhinos, and more.
We travelled in a comfortable jeep in a group of seven people, which worked fine.
We stayed in different camp sites which were decent, the tents were pitched when we arrived every evening and provided with sleeping pads and sleeping bags. The food was excellent thanks to our two man cooking/camp site team. Solid breakfasts with eggs, pancakes, toasted bread and fresh fruit; deliciously coocked lunches consisting of rice, meat stews and vegetables; and two course dinners (amazing soups for starter and a varying selection of hot dishes for the main course + wine. We felt lucky as we saw many our tour groups were only provided with basic lunch boxes with some sandwiches instead of our freshly coocked "proper" food.

The only problem we had was with some park entrance payments one day, apparently due to some network issues (internet is usually quite bad anywhere in Tanzania, at least in our experience) and was fairly quickly resolved without too much delay.

All in all, I can only strongly recommend going on a safari with Suricata, which we felt were also competitively priced ($780 per person, all inclusive). The service was great the entire way, and I would definitely use them again if I return to Tanzania one day.

We had such a great time in our safari thanks to Suricata Safaris. Everything went well, the overnight stays were good as well as the food. We had Rocky as a guide and he was absolutely amazing.

Best tour operator ever!
5/5

Our Tanzania Safari with Suricata tour was AMAZING❤️! I have no words to describe the emotions we felt. We saw so many animals that we could no longer keep count… 5 cheetahs, 2 leopards, a Servalle, lots of elephants, zebras, giraffes, hippos, and so on and so forth. Our guide Freddi (Frederik) was great! He explained us everything about animals, plants, environmental protection, etc about Tanzania and the wonderful parks we visited. The trip was well organized and the accommodations were beautiful and all different. We stayed in a crazy lodge in front of Lake Manyara (Suricata Boma Lodge), then we stayed in the Agata Camp in the Serengeti and then again in the Torillis Camp near the Ngorongoro Crater. Once again we sincerely thank all the staff who have been extremely kind and attentive (I have never found such a welcome in any of my travels, and I travel a lot). The food was always very good, perhaps the breakfast could be improved just a little. If you get the chance, don't hesitate for a second to visit Tanzania because it is truly a fantastic country that pays attention to its nature. Negative notes? None

Exceptional experience from start to finish - definitely book with Suricata!
5/5

Our Suricata Safari was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, James, and chef, Tito, were exceptional and made the experience unforgettable.
Communication and organisation was excellent and friendly.
The parks themselves were spectacular and James did a great job at making sure we saw lots of amazing animals.
All the food was absolutely delicious and looked like the best out of all the other Safari groups we saw.
I’d 100% recommend Suricata Safaris to anyone!!

Amazing Safari experience
5/5

We did a 5 day safari visiting Ngorongoro crater, Tarangire and Serengeti National Park. It was absolutely incredible and everything was great. Ezekiel was the perfect guide, extremely knowledgeable, he spotted so many animals from far away and drove very safely and carefully. Tito prepared delicious meals and we felt taken care of very well throughout the whole time. They were both also a very pleasant company and fun to be with! I can absolutely recommend Suricata Safaris and would do a trip with them again anytime!

Perfect Safari experience
5/5

If you're looking for a safari operator stop and book with Suricata. You don't need to plan anything. Just fill a quote on their website and they will (very quickly!!) supply you with all the information. We chose a 5-day safari with a fixed price that included ALL the airport transfers and nice hotel accommodation in Arusha (where you can also safely store your lougage during the safari). You are brieft every evening about how the next day will be. Our guide Mandela was amazing - he waited that everybody finished taking photos and shared interesting information about the animals. Also the meals were perfect (especially considering you are in the wild) - Tito's pizza and bbq meat were so good. Just sit back, enjoy the animals and take in the scenery.

Hakuna matata.
