Great Experience On Kilimanjaro
5/5

In August 2021, I traveled to Tanzania with my brother to fulfill a lifelong dream of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. After much research, we went with Lappet Faced Safaris and were so glad that we did. Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro we met their representative (Francisco) who picked us and transferred us to Panama Hotel in Moshi. Later in the evening we met with our guides who briefed us on our upcoming trek, and then went to our rooms to check our equipment to make sure that we were properly prepared. Once the trek started, we were given a daily medical check to monitor our vital signs to ensure that we could continue each day without health issues.Lappet faced safari guides are all medically trained and brought along oxygen, glucose, a stretcher and a portable hyperbaric chamber on the climb. The cook was extraordinary, every meal was warm, delicious and nutritious, and consisted of several courses to satisfy our high altitude nutritional needs. Including my brother and myself, there were five people in our group, and we all made it to Uhuru Peak on kilimanjaro 7 days Lemosho route to the top. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a life-changing experience, and there is no doubt in my mind that Lappet Faced Safaris expertise and care are what got us to the top. They are simply the best trekking company on the mountain.

Amazing Trip
5/5

We came with my husband to visit Tanzania famous parks of Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro. We booked with Lappet Faced Safaris because it has good reviews and they are very good.
The whole tour was very good. We were guided by an experienced guide Gabriel who make us very happy.
He takes us to the middle of where to find animals and patient to let us take good photos and video clips of elephant, lion, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, flamingo, crownbird, stork, monkey, baboon and more.
The Toyota hardtop pop pup roof was comfortable, with fridge, nice seat, plugs for power and animal books.
Book with Lappet Faced Safaris and enjoy

Beyond our expectations and big thanks to our guide Naftal
5/5

My wife and I did a 6 day safari organized through Lappet Faced Safari and we still talk about how wonderful it was, 5 months on. The choice of accommodation and standard of food throughout was excellent but it was thanks to our guide Nafatal who made our experience so much more. Naftal is an impeccable driver with a fun sense of humour but he always seemed to go that extra mile for us. On one occasion whilst driving, we heard the trumpeting of elephants from behind the thick wall of jungle in the distance. Two other vehicles from another company in front of us sped on in the hope of seeing them but Naftal had a different idea, turned the vehicle around and waited. Sure enough, a huge number of elephants came running past (from a safe distance) and we were able to drive along side of them. When most other drivers would take their groups to a busy picnic spot with other tour groups, Naftal would find a peaceful spot just for ourselves and on one occasion we were surrounded by zebras whilst eating our packed lunch. With his knowledge, we now have some wonderful photos of the big 5 and so much more to keep as memories and we still keep in touch via social media.

Unforgettable Safari and Zanzibar
5/5

My wife and I have just returned from a holiday vacation in Tanzania safari and Zanzibar with Lappet Faced Safaris. We did not know much about Tanzania or Zanzibar and Francisco helped us come up with the great bespoke itinerary specially crafted to suit our desires, budget and timeline. We had fun on safari visiting Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with our fantastic guide Frank. We enjoyed the beautiful landscapes and awesome wildlife encounters. They had organized for fabulous camps that were comfortable, fine food and great staff. Matemwe beach in Zanzibar was relaxing and beautiful; walking along the beach, swimming and just having fun. This trip was like our second honeymoon all thanks to Lappet Faced Safaris

Wonderful Vacation in Tanzania
5/5

My husband, daughter, and I went on a 10 day safari to Tarangire NP Serengeti NP and Ngorongoro Crater. We used Lappet Faced Safaris and Safaris for the trip and they made the safari a wonderful experience for us. Francisco helped us create a wonderful itinerary by providing a lot of advice on the best time to visit the the parks and what to expect. He advised us to visit in July when the wildebeests would be crossing the Mara River to go into Kenya. He was also very helpful with the small details like the booking our accommodation, payment of park fees, transport and other logistics.
Our guide Joseph was incredibly amazing, excellent at his job, highly experienced and skilled. He was great at locating the animals and he took as close as he could so that we could get great shots. He was very patient with us, especially when my daughter insisted on taking lots of pictures of the animals. Some of his passion even rubbed off on us when he taught us a bit of Swahili. He had a talented eye for birds. He showed us a lot of them and my daughter was happy with the pictures she took of the birds.
The accommodations in the tented camps gave us a feel of Tanzania’s wildlife. We could see the animals roaming from our tents. It was amazing.
I highly recommend Lappet Faced Safaris and Safaris for your African safari.

Outstanding Experience
5/5

I had the opportunity to use Lappet Faced Safaris for my recent safari to Tanzania. The booking experience with Francisco was excellent. He was patient with my questions and very diligent and clear in the booking process. Once I arrived into Tanzania i was greeted by my guide Michael. My feeling were that he was the absolute best. We literally saw every animal and way more than what I expected to see. I thought it was awesome when Michael my guide, who does this for a living was also taking pictures of some of the most amazing experiences imaginable. Thank you Lappet Faced Safaris for this incredible experience!

Kilimanjaro Rongai Route
5/5

Lappet Faced Safaris took care of everything! They were responsive and helpful from the beginning as we planned our trip and took care of everything we could've needed from beginning to end.

We had Eric and David as our head guides and Isa and Charles as our other guides. Ask for them! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and so much fun! They ensured that all of us got all the way to the top, even helping one of our group members through some tough altitude sickness. Their expertise at high altitude was amazing.
Lappet Faced Safaris took amazing care of us at every step of the way and gave us the experience of a lifetime on Kilimanjaro.

It was worth every penny
5/5

Everything was well through out. We only had a short amount of time , but we were able to get a good sample of the Safari in Tanzania with the itinerary that was suggested to us. Communication was always prompt, polite, and informative from the company. Emails were always responded to within 24 hours, and always with as detailed information as possible.

Can’t wait to have another trip with friends I have tested,
It is real worth for saving you plan for vacation.

Unforgettable Safari
5/5

Completed safari in September 2019 with 2 other females. Our guide Amani was so nice & knowledgeable. We called him the animal whisperer because we’d say we wanted to see an animal & the next thing we’d know we’d be looking at one or more! We saw everything we wanted too, great food, & loved our Serengeti camp stay! We also enjoyed learned about the Maasai culture & visiting a village. The owner Francisco also got us 2 bottles of wine & was very responsive & cared about the quality of our stay!
I loved everything about Tanzania! I would definitely safari again with Lappet Faced Safaris
