Most amazing experience

My wife and I went on a nine day safari with Safari 360, from Sep 16 to Sep 24, 2023. I will say upfront that this was the best vacation we ever had, by far. And please take this from someone who visited more than 40 countries, including China, Japan and vast natural areas of USA and Europe.

There were two key ingredients to having this amazing experience: the sheer beauty of Tanzania and the very professional services of Safari 360.

Let's start with the first. Each place we visited was unique and each day spent among the wildlife felt us disconnect from the mundane problems of our lives and appreciate how incredibly diverse and wonderful nature is. There is nothing you can compare seeing the great migration to. Or seeing juvenile cheetahs learning from their mother how to hunt an antelope. Or the amazing display of water buffalos, gazing at the Ngorongoro highlands, next from a school of hippos and some lazy hyenas. Not to mention all the lions and the leopards.

The second ingredient was the company we hired, Safari 360, and especially Edwin, who is a fantastic guide, teaching us so many things. His sense of humour, kindness and honesty made us feel like we were travelling alongside an old friend.

We wish to return one day to Tanzania and to explore more unique places together with Safari 360 and Edwin.

The accommodations, the food and the itinerary have exceeded our expectations. Literally, every place we stayed at delivered to its promises, even if they mid-range accommodations. Especially the quality of the food everywhere was surprisingly good, despite the remote locations of many of these camps. Petro Kazi, the owner, was very transparent during the entire process of crafting the itinerary, such that we get to see all the important places, while not spending money on rather useless experiences, such as night safari or walking safari, which are just hyped options, but with close to none chances of making you see something truly amazing.

I must confess that in the beginning I felt a bit unsure about how safe it would be us to book a tour directly with a small local company. But it turned out this is just fine. For us, as Europeans, and for other western-culture countries, this may not seem the safest bet, but our experience was literally perfect. And we paid for this a lower price than of we would have contracted one of the larger firms, who have European-based offices.

I was also very positively impressed by the people we met throughout the safari. They are happy and, despite the hardship, have a very good vibe.

And now, key recommendations and facts from our journey. Most important: try to book a private tour if you're a couple. It's so important to have a lot of space around you when you stay 9-10 hours in a car every day, for 9 days in a row. And you have way much freedom to turn around and look for animals in all directions through the pop-up roof.
Must do: Go up to Northern Serengeti, to see the great migration. We saw three massive crossings of the Mara River in one day. Visit the Hadzabe, Datoga and Masaai tribes. Especially the Hadzabe, one of the last tribes of hunter-gatherers in the world. Visit Tarangire and Ngorongoro crater. It's also good to spend one day before the safari in Arusha, like we did, to make sure you have some time to wind down after the long flight.

The only lowlights of the trip was the rather scarce number of animals from Lake Manyara reservation and the fact that we didn't see any rhino, despite spending 9 days looking for them. Seems they are still in pretty low numbers and unless you go to a special kind of reservation just for rhinos, there's little chance to see one in Serengeti or Ngorongoro. Also, the season influences their behavior and in September they are still mostly in the forests of Ngorongoro, rather than in the plain field.

Last but not least, some feedback to the feedback I read on the Internet before our safari. The overall level of danger is minimal, for any type of danger you may think of. You don't need any vaccine if you go directly from Europe to Tanzania, it's fine to have some malaria pills with you, but the chances of needing them are probably 1 in 1000. There were less than 50 tzetze flies around us during the entire trip and it's only 1 in 10.000 that carries the malaria virus. You calculate the odds. The food is very good and more than enough. I was reading reviews from folks saying that it wasn't up to the price they paid for. Let me remind such people that in a safari you pay 3-400 USD per room per night for a mid-range because of its remoteness and scarcity of accommodation places. You can't expect oysters and 100 hotels next to each other in Serengeti, because then there would no longer be anything special about that place. It would turn into a tourist resort. Same story for the quality of the bathroom etc. Still, we had really hot water every evening, some bathroom had even two sinks. What more can you ask in the middle of nowhere?

I will end my review by saying once again that this was the best experience of our lives and we hardly imagine something exceeding it. Maybe a visit to Papua New Guinea and then Borneo, both during the same trip.

And many thanks again to Edwin from Safari 360, our expert guide who helped us enjoy every second of this journey.

unforgettable days

We visited Tarangiri, Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro parks. Everything was perfect: animals were quite easy to see, we we've been taken face to fece with lions, leopards, elephants, hyppos and so on. The car was very confortable for a couple, like us. Our guide, Rashid, deserves a special praise: he was very careful for any need of us, very professional in spotting animals without disturbing them, and never tired, even after driving for hours on gravel. All accomodations were even better than we expected, with confortable rooms, tasty and never repetitive food, and very professional staffs.

Fantastic tour company, nothing was too much trouble for them.

This was our first full safari and we could not have picked a better company. They replied very quickly to all my queries and tailored the tour to suit our arrival and departure requests. They even re-arranged our onward flights that had been cancelled by the airline. Our safari guide was Amos and he was brilliant at spotting all forms of wildlife, we saw all the big five and so much more, and often at very close range. His knowlege was incredible as was his attention to detail.
There was nothing to fault throughout the entire trip and we would highly recommend Safari 360 to anyone.

Super punctual and responsible.

He explained the weekly itinerary but was flexible on the safari when it came to organising times or taking us to see particular animals. He tried to avoid crowds of cars, which is very much appreciated as it is more enjoyable when you don't see other cars. He was flexible to give us time to admire the animals as much as we wanted. He was always more than punctual, arriving early for pick-up and respectful and tolerant of my slowness in the mornings. In the end it felt like being in the family with him.

Words cannot describe our Safari experience!

We did a 4-day safari with safari360 and visited Lake Natron, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. Despite we knew we had limited time, our guide Godlove made it possible for us to see lots of nature and animals including the big five. From the first moment on, we felt comfortable and in very good company. Godlove is super friendly, open-minded, fun and has an impressive experience! He knew exactly where to look for animals and already spotted them from very far away. Besides, we really enjoyed our dinners, where we could talk about the wildness and life in Tanzania. All the organized accomodations were beautifully located, in good shape and very friendly. Lunchboxes were great as well. Godlove always managed to be at the right place in the right moment so we were able to see the most stunning things we have never even dreamt of from the best positions! We will never forget those four days and we will never forget Godlove, who really was the perfect guide for us! For sure, we collected memories for a lifetime. We are already sure that this was not our last safari and we definitely want to go on a safari with Godlove again.
Also, the coordination of the safari with Petro went really well. In case of any questions he replied within hours. All in all very professional.
We would definitily book another safari with safari360 and Godlove again!!

The BEST Safari Company Out There!!

My husband and I came to Tanzania for our honeymoon. We booked a 7-day safari with Safari360 and could not be happier with how it went! From the first morning he picked us up, our safari guide, Godlove, was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun, and we knew we were in for a great week. He went as far as calling each hotel we stayed at to have them set up decorations in our room to celebrate the honeymoon- It was so unexpected and SO thoughtful. We even had a whole restaurant staff sing to us & a cake given to us one night to celebrate! Godlove & Safari360 will go out of their way to make sure you have an unforgettable trip with incredible memories. He was able to to spot animals on the safari like the true professional he is, even when the black rhino looked like a tiny dot in the far distance (lol)! We learned so much about the animals, the national parks, and about the local tribes and history of Tanzania. We knew so little coming to Tanzania, and I feel like we left with so much more thanks to Godlove. The packed lunches were wonderful every day, and we got to enjoy dinner with Godlove a few of the nights which we were excited to do. When we come back to Tanzania, we won’t be booking with anyone other than Safari360! On top of an amazing safari, you’ll make some lifelong friends out of it :)

Great experience with a great guide

We had a wonderful safari. As agreed, our guide Rashid picked us up on time at our first accommodation. Then the adventure started. Besides the Big 5 we saw many other animals. It is an indescribable experience to see the animals in their natural environment.
Rashid was a great guide. We immediately got along very well with him. You could feel his 15 years of experience. He knew a lot about the animals. He also knew his way around the parks. He always had a good feel for where the animals were. He also gave us enough time to observe the animals in peace. It was really a lot of fun with him.
The organization of the Safari by Safari360 was very good. During the 5 days we had really very nice accommodations. A pool, nice and courteous staff, clean rooms and very good food were guaranteed.
We can highly recommend Safari360 and especially Rashid as a guide.

Trip of a lifetime

Godlove was our guide for our 5 day 4 night Safari and words cannot express how perfect he was for my family of 5. My father 83 years young was in awe the entire tour. We scored the big 5 in 3 days because of Godlove’s eagle eyes for spotting the most amazingly upclose encounters with the animals. He’s assertive and moved the cruiser into the best position for our National Geographic cell phone shots (lol). He made every single moment amazing by keeping us engaged in Swahili lessons and wildlife nature. Nothing short of amazing.

Brilliant Safari - Saw All Big Five - Best Guide And Company

This was the best Safari ever. We managed to see all the Big Five. Godlove is a fantastic guide. I would recommend everyone to request him as a guide. Because of him we were lucky to see so many animals including the big 5.He is humorous and brilliant Safari Guide. He has amazing vision and can see animals we don't even notice. He is very experienced and a brilliant driver. Our 6 day safari was brilliantly organised by Petro and communication great. We did Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Lake Manyara in six days. We managed to see all the big five close up and were very lucky. All of this was thanks to GodLove who is a brilliant guide and is very experienced. Safari360 is a small reputable company which is why I would book with them. It is better to book with small company who have good experienced drivers and can look after you rather than big companies. All the accommodation and staff were brilliant also. I would definetely book with Safari360 again. This is one of the best things I have ever done in my life and it is all thanks to God love and Safari 360.

Outstanding 6-day Kilimanjaro hike via Machame route by Safari360!

I had the incredible opportunity to book my Mt. Kilimanjaro adventure with Safari360 Tanzania, and I couldn't be happier with the entire experience. From start to finish, Petro, the Director of Safari360, made the entire process seamless and enjoyable.

Right from our initial contact via email, Petro's responsiveness and wealth of information were remarkable. He provided me with various route options, ensuring I had all the details needed to decide which route to take. Once I selected my route, he assembled an exceptional team, including a fantastic guide, a group of dedicated porters, and a skilled cook.

What truly made this journey unforgettable was the camaraderie I shared with the entire team. I sat down with them every evening at our different camps, sharing stories and laughter. Their teamwork and coordination were impeccable, which added to my comfort and enriched my overall experience. As a solo hiker, I never felt "alone" during the six days hike.

Safari360 also took care of my transportation to and from the airport and my hotel selection, making sure every aspect of my trip was comfortable and hassle-free. My meals during my hike were catered to my needs by the cook, which was great.

Speaking of my guide, Ally Khalfan, I can't express how grateful I am for his expertise and companionship throughout the journey. His experience and knowledge were evident every step of the way, and he played a pivotal role in ensuring I successfully summited Kilimanjaro.

I highly recommend Safari360 to anyone seeking an unforgettable Kilimanjaro experience. Thank you, Petro, for making my dream come true!
