Excellent experience

Perfect experience,
We booked the tour a day in advance, this was no problem. Directly we had good contact with (Jacob) smile tours they fixt everything for us; flights pick up and drop off from the hotel in Zanzibar. Clear and fast responses if we had any questions. Then the safari itself was unbelievable. Our guide Mr Salum Msese, he was realy friendly and knew a lot about the Forrest and animals that were found in the selous game reserve. Thanks to his expertise we were able to see all the animals we would want to see even the elusive leopard

Just great organisation, everything took into account!

Thank you so much for this tour and especially for our guide Allen!
The route was interesting and Allen pointed us all the important movements. He was riding to all the places the animals could be and we’ve seen a lot - and all the animals in their nature environment were just adorable. Thank you for all these impressions!
Also he is a good storyteller and can tell you all interesting things about African nature.
Many thanks Allen for that!

Accommodation for both nights was really good too, especially for the last night. Only great impression from this tour, highly recommended!

Unforgettable life-time experience!

We booked 5 days’ safari Mikumi, Udzungwa and Selous/Nyerere np.
It was the best experience we had in our life! Our guide, Said was really awesome! Many thanks to him for this wonderful experience.
He always tried to see as much as possible. He is really a professional and a person in the right place! We learned a lot of interesting information not only about animals, he was always willing to answer our sometimes stupid questions. He always informed us and planned for the next day and also offered alternatives.
Seeing animals from such close proximity is a unique experience. Lion was less than 2 meters from us! We were fascinated and enchanted by so many things! For example, a picnic in the park overlooking the reservoir, where the animals went to drink, a walking safari with a bushman and lot of others.
The accommodation was always very beautiful and clean, we especially remember the truly magical accommodation in Selous! The food and service was excellent, sometimes quite large portions for us. :)
It was our honeymoon and we even had a room with decorations ready. What a lovely suprise!
It can be seen that everything is done with the heart and with love!
We also thank you Jacob for organizing this tour.

We highly recommend booking the trip with Smile With Us Tours, if you do it then you will definitely have an amazing time!

Amazing safari experience with the most caring guide Msese

Everything what we wanted to experience was perfectly organised since the pick up to the drop off at the hotel reception in DAR! We spent a really amazing time with the most caring and very kind guide Msese who is strongly knowledgeble of all the animals, and nature. We liked all the walks and interaction with the locals in the villages, the walking safari with the bushman. The safari itself was something special to us, just to sit and watch the raw narute was really cool! Thank you Jacob for all the organisation, you surprised us with time accuracy! wow! and huge thanks to Msese who made all the trip unforgeteble! We will strongly recommend your services!

Great Safari time with Smile With Us Tours !

I went for a private 3-person safari with these guys and we all loved it! Before it started I have asked Jacob many questions and we arranged everything as we wanted (4 days from Mwanza to Arusha). Our driver was Bern and the cook was Edward. Both of these guys were doing their best to make our safari a lifetime adventure and they did it. Bern is a very experienced driver who knows Serengeti like his own pocket and Edward was a real Chef cooking delicious food. Many thanks for both o you guys!
Please remember that Safari is not a ZOO and you can't control animals. But if you have an experienced driver then he will know how where to go - Bern is one of them.
Thank you very much for the lovely trip!

Very well customized tour

I have asked for a private, customized tour in selous national park. Within a few hours a get very fair priced offer for a 4 day safari from Jacob. He is the owner of smile with us tours.
The driver and guide (Kassim) was waiting at Dar Es Salaam airport and picked me up for driving to the national park. First he helped me by getting a local sim card and changing money. While driving to the lodge he has given me a lot of informations about Tanzania. If I have asked him questions a could give me always a good answers.
By driving he gave me good tips for more customizing my tour. So we have changed the plan of the tour a bit. A have made a cultural village tour, a boat safari, a bush walk and a national park drive. Every experience has been great.
The Africa Safari Lodge is a very pleasant lodge with spacious rooms, good food, very friendly staff and a nice pool.
Thank you Jacob for organizing this tour.
Thank you Kassim for driving me so safe and respectful, for giving so many good informations and for your funny jokes. you have given an unforgettable experience.
