Fantastic safari with Suricata!0

Everything about this trip was fantastic beginning with planning communications, arrangements and logistics. The accommodations far exceeded my expectations for the price. We had wonderful food for all meals and my food preferences were accommodated. Our guide was knowledgeable, a safe driver and very accommodating. I would highly recommend Suricata!!

highly recommended

We were warmly welcomed at the airport by Daniel and John. We had great fun on the drive to Arusha and they made us feel welcome. As it was already very late and we did not have dinner yet, we went to eat at a local restaurant. It was a fantastic start to our trip.
We spent the night at the Senetor Hotel. There, too, the staff were very accommodating. There was local breakfast, which was very tasty. We chose a 3-day safari to Ngorogoro and Serengeti National Park. Everything was perfectly organised and James, our driver, was always good for a laugh. The camping was well worth the experience and the food by Tito was excellent. We were driven to the airport again the day after the safari. In addition, communication with Ally was also straightforward. The team gave their best for an unforgettable experience. We would choose Suricara Safari again for a trip and can recommend this provider warmly. Thanks Suricata-Team for the experience we got.

The best travel in my life

It was a wonderful experience that I could never have had in Japan.
The email communication to Tanzania was quick to reply and smooth. When I emailed them, they sent me a pamphlet, which included information about the tour, what to bring, and the price of tips. They are very kind, but the only thing is that it was difficult to pay by credit card, so we had to send money transfer from our bank.
Also, the day we arrived in Tanzania, we did not have a plan, but Allie introduced us to a tour that take us to local markets, restaurants and teach us about the history. We had a good time at the tour.
We were also able to arrange airport transfers and hotels, so basically we had nothing else to prepare.
We also had trouble dealing with refunds for our flight from Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar, but they contacted the airline several times.

The lodge we stayed during our safari was beautiful and wonderful. The lodge is surrounded by nature and we saw animals several times.
Hot water and mineral water were provided and all dinner are course meals, traditional or western style. All the food was very tasty, and they of course checked our allergies in advance.

We were especially satisfied with the service at Srikata Boma Lodge. When we told them this is our honeymoon, we were welcomed by all staff with fruits and a great celebration. The rooms were in the Maasai ethnic style, with a view of Lake Manyara from every room, and all the employees were very friendly, which is the highest level of hospitality I have ever experienced in Japan.
The safari was greater than I expected. There were no artifacts and magnificent nature spread as far as the I could see. We were able to see many animals as we drove around by the safari car. Although it was the rainy season, we were able to see Big 5 without leopards, as well as herds of gnus, buffalo, and zebras. Our guide, Izaquiel said there are about 3 million animals in one herd. We enjoyed the guide who explained not only about the animals' ecology but also about the climate and culture of Tanzania. It was the first time for me to have dinner with a guide, but it was a very valuable experience for me as I am not good at English and it was easy for me to ask questions.
I was able to experience the great 5 days safari and it was a refreshing experience.
If you want to experience safari, wilderness and comfortable tour, I would recommend this tour.

Amazing safari experience with good food and nice people

We have had an amazing safari experience with Suricata. We saw lots of animals, from which a lot from real close. There were for example elephants (a lot off), lions, baboons, giraffes and buffalo’s within meters from the jeep.

Our guide Mandela was a very nice and relaxed man who knows so much interesting facts about all the animals and the parks. He tries hard to find the places where the animals are located and took good care of us.

The food during the trip was very good. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was different from each other and very tastefull. The chef was so kind and eager to help.

Camping on the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater was incredible. On the Serengeti plains during the night you can hear the lions roaring. During breakfast a Hyena walked by the camp. In the Ngorongoro camp we were greeted by a big elephant on arrival, which stayed calmly in the camp grazing. In the morning there were nine giraffes walking around the camp.

We would recommend Suricata to everyone! The price of the 5 day camping safari is worth every penny of the experience. Also, the contact with all of the Suricata employees is good and clear.

Amazing trip with Suricata Safaris

We 1000% recommend Suricata Safaris. It is a very professional and accomodating agency and the whole team is very caring. We have seen the Big five and more thanks to the guide Rocky and his eagle eyes, who is a master of Tanzanian wildlife. Camping in the heart of the savannah and animals is absolutely amazing. The meals were delicious thanks to Moussa, the best cook in the world ! All the sides of the safari are perfectly handled by Mister T : he organized the delivery of our delayed luggages in the middle of the safari, he helped us to plan the next step of our trip in Tanzania... 1000 thanks to him ! In summary : we spent 5 wonderful days with the whole team, always in a good mood. We go back to France with our heads full of memories !

Amazing Safari experience

I joined the 5 day safari tour and it was amazing from start to finish. Booking with Suricata was very smooth and easy. Hillary, the owner, was very quick to respond to all my queries. Overall, everything went as planned.

I booked a mixed accommodation - 2 nights in lodge & 2 nights camping. To my surprise, i was upgraded to stay at the newly built Suricata Boma lodge and it was excellent. It just opened and according to them, I was their second guest. I was literally the only guest during my 2 night stay and everyone was so accommodating and helpful.

As for the safari tour, I was lucky to be part of an amazing group headed by our excellent driver/guide, Rocky. Rocky was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to provide good details about the safari, what to expect and he was able to answer all questions. We were also able to see the Big 5.

I highly recommend Suricata Safaris. They’re truly the best in Tanzania. They go above and beyond what is expected. I’m definitely booking another tour with them next time I visit.
