Because od Suricata Safaris we were living our dream. Unforgettable. Very nice work!
5/5

The best honeymoon trip ever. Amazing experience to go to safari to Tanzania. It was so nice to see animals in their natural habitat and dive into them for a while. Agency is doing their job very properly from the beginning to the end. Very good communication, perfect lunches in wild and very careful service in camp. Amazing people there, I must mention perfect guide Mandela with nice accompany - our chef Salum. There are very nice guides in camps too. We chose lodges and it worth it. Very comfortable and modern tents. You are so close to animals (can see them, can hear them), but you feel very safe all the time. Very nice work guys. Thank you.

Absolutely perfect !
5/5

3 Safari Tour (Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater) was propably the best experience in my life.
We saw all animals. We spent 3 days in wild nature with briliant guide Mandela, who knew every animal and their behaviour.
Big professional. We had also MasterChef Salum who made for us delicious food.
Accomodation was very clean and very beutiful. Also safe.
I can recommend to everybody.
Next time in Tanzania with Suricata !

Amazing!
5/5

We love it! The guide was great. A great eye for finding animals. He stopped whenever we asked. Super attentive. He cleared all our doubts. He took breaks along the way in places with bathrooms. The cook is also super attentive. Hot and super tasty food. Lots of variety and abundance. Hot and cold drinks. We loved the tours! I would definitely come back!

Big 5 with Damien
5/5

This safari was truely the most amazing experience! Suricata was an amazing company and I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone. My partner and I did the 5 day safari and had a great group and met some lovely people along the way.

Our guide Damien was amazing and always got us great spots to see the animals from. He worked really hard and we managed to spot all of the big 5 on our trip. He was friendly and very informative, and had a great sense of humour!!

The camping was a great experience and it was amazing to camp in the national parks. Chef James’s food was exceptional and I was blown away by the quality of the food. The whole team was very accommodating and I was impressed that the safari cars were washed down at the end of each day.

The whole team was always punctual and very professional. We had the best time and will 100% be back and would love to do another safari with Suricata!

Amazing!
5/5

On Day 1, we were picked up from our hotel, which was not part of the Suricata network (but Hillary helped make it happen for us) and taken to a meeting spot, where we met up with our first guide, Max, who took us to Tarangire National Park. Max was very knowledgeable and gave us important information on the park itself and the animals. He was also super flexible, stopping anytime we needed to snap a photo or get a closer look. We then stopped for a delicious lunch (shoutout to Tito, who was our chef throughout the 4 days we were there). Unlike other companies who provided boxed lunches, Suricata provided a nice spread, which included a stew, rice, veggies, & fresh fruit. We then continued on our game drive after lunch, at which point we were taken back to our meeting point. There, a driver took us to the Twiga campsite. Overall, everything was very well coordinated; however, when we got to the campsite, our driver didn’t give us much information on where to check in. Luckily, another chef, James, helped us get settled in. Of note, Twiga offers both a tenting and lodge option. Our package included the camping, but seeing as how you’re in an enclosed property with no wildlife in sight (other than the Maribou Stork - one of the ugly 5), we decided to upgrade to the lodge. Worth a few extra bucks, in our opinion. We were also provided with a free walking tour of the village - an unexpected extra perk that gave an insight to the local village. Definitely recommend it.

On days 2-4, we had Rocky as our guide. He was an absolute rockstar. He took us to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro NP, & The Crater. He was an amazing guide - beyond knowledgeable about ALL the animals (especially if you’re an avid birder - we didn’t start off as one, but definitely ended as one thanks to Rocky’s enthusiasm and expertise). Rocky was patient, funny, accommodating, and just an overall great guy. Also of note, he has an incredible knack for spotting creatures from a wild distance. How he spotted that python on the side of the road, I have no clue! We were truly lucky to have him. Even when we decided last minute to do a hot air balloon ride, Rocky went out of his way to ensure that we were able to book it with ease. The Safari network is strong!

We camped on nights 2 & 3. Beyond worth it. We could have opted for a lodge on these nights too, but if you want to embrace the adventure of camping with hyenas, lions, giraffes, buffalos, and elephants, we highly recommend you go for it. You will be in great hands.

We had delicious meals throughout the safari. Tito cooked a special meal for breakfast, lunch, & dinner that highlighted local ingredients, which really enhanced the experience, especially if trying new foods is of interest. Also of note, one of our group members had a stomach ache on the second day, and Tito whipped up a special concoction that provided her with relief in a short 30 mins. He’s amazing!

As a final last touch, Daniel met us at our hotel at the end of the Safari to ensure that our tour met our expectations. He wanted to make sure we arrived comfortably and that we had what we needed for the next part of our stay in Tanzania. He was able to arrange private transport to the airport for us - definitely nicer and less expensive compared to any other option.

In short, if you’re looking for a Safari company, we would highly recommend Suricata. You’ll get a personalized experience and memories to last a lifetime. This is just the beginning…. (iykyk)

AMAZING
5/5

This was my first multi-day safari and it was incredible, my partner and I did the camping option and arriving to camp at night with your tents already being set up was amazing! The breakfast/lunch and dinner each day was delicious and there was plenty of it! We got beer/wine with dinner also which was an unexpected bonus ! Our guide/driver was great and had a great eye when it came to spotting the animals, we where so lucky and got to see the big 5 on our trip! There was water in the back of the seat waiting/ready for us each morning which was a nice touch !
We also had booked our hotel and transfer for before our safari and everything was smooth from the airport pick up/ transfer to the check in!
It was the best 4 days and I would not hesitate in recommending suricata safaris to friends and family !

Amazing Safari in Tanzania seeing the big 5
5/5

Safari was amazing we were able to see the big 5 as well as a lot of other wildlife!

Both drivers of our group were very informative, helpful, funny, nice and spoke great English. The staff made this safari great.

Camping was set up every night so we didn’t have to do anything once at camp which was amazing. The food was delicious.

The drivers positioned us in the best spots for photos and viewing.

Couldn’t recommend suricatas enough!

Organised, thoughtful and beyond knowledgeable
5/5

One of the best experiences of my life!
Our guide, Rocky, was there with us from start to finish and seemed to know everything about every animal (birds included!). He was super patient, stopping whenever there was something that interested us, and was happy to share his wealth of knowledge with us the whole trip. We even managed to get to see the Big 5 which was more than we had expected!
Tito, our chef, was also absolutely lovely and the food was excellent every single meal.
We chose to camp all the nights and because of this we got to experience the wildlife in such a unique way while also feeling safe and protected.
Thank you Suracata!
