Amazing experience !

We had a 3 days safari with African big cats . The communication Was easy and pleasant during all the preparation of our trip. The service was very good with excellent choice regarding hotel. Don’t hesitate to give your recommendations because the agency can easily adapt to your requests which is much appreciated. We had the chance to see a lot of animals even the rare ones !! I truly recommend this agency to discover Tanzania .

Amazing!! Venance is a friend we will cherish forever!

Amazing experience from enquiring to the safari itself. Justice responded extremely promptly and was very thorough in explaining everything. Emmanuel who picked us up was excellent and very enthusiastic and friendly, before we headed off for the safari he let us know what to expect and was very informative when he took us to Mount Kilimanjaro. Imran our guide for the Kilimanjaro day hike was amazing, very genuine person and down to earth person. Lastly Venance, I cannot put in words how amazing he made everything. He is a very knowledgeable guide and only wanted the best experience for us. He did his best to ensure that we saw all the big 5 and made sure that we left Tanzania content and did not miss out on anything that we wanted to see, on the last few safari days we had yet to see the African Black Rhino but Venance did everything in his power to make sure we found one and we did!

If you want the best experience ask for Venance! He was more than just a guide but a friend during the safari trip. We hope to cross paths with him again in the future.

Be sure to add the cultural experience with the Hadza and Datoga tribe as that was one of our highlights. Also the Ngorongoro Crater Rim Walk, one of the most stunning views and you get to enjoy it alone because not many people do it!

Perfect on every detail

We had a 6 days safari in Arusha area of Tanzania.
All the logistics before our arrival were very well managed, Justice was so patient and helpful until we got the perfect plan for us.
Our guide, driver and friend was Lody. He did everything to give us the best experience ever. We learned from his knowledge not just about animals but about Tanzania, the country, the culture and the population.
The landscape and nature was amazing everywhere, we couldn't stop taking pictures and Lody managed to fulfill all our request. We miss him already.
The lodges and camps were exelent, well located, beautiful and comfortable.
Food was very good in the accommodations and on the way. Tanzanian people were very friendly, I'm sure we will meet for another round.

Fun and informative

They were very punctual and friendly!
They did everything we had agreed for.
They even delivered to Zanzibar one iPod that got lost in one of the lodges we stayed free of charge!
Accommodation was great and 4/5 days food was great too. One of the day the food was average but I guess that is also a matter of personal preference.
No food poisoning whatsoever.
The schedule they did for us it was really good!
We did the 5 days safari, I would definitely do with 6 personally to spent one more day in Serengeti!
They are more than happy to tailor the itinerary for you, so speak to them!
I would recommend the company!

Amazing Experience!

I highly recommend Big Cat Safaris! I had a wonderful experience. Our driver Venance was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable about all of the parks and the animals there. We were very lucky and were able to see pretty much all of the animals. The accommodations were lovely and all of the travel between parks was well organized. The tour is definitely worth the price and I would absolutely book with Big Cat Safaris again.

Very professional company, amazing guide Valence

Would highly recommend this company! Very clear communication (in advance before the booking and during the tour) and very professional (e.g. our driver from Kilimanjaro airport let us call with the manager which gives a feeling of trust) We did the 3 day tour to Tarangire, Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara. Great combination of different vegetations and we really enjoyed the rides in the jeep. Our guide Valence gave us a once in a lifetime trip. If you have the opportunity to choose Valence, please do! The company should definitely hire him!!! He told us a lot about not only wildlife but also about the Tanzanian culture. When we had a question he could’t answer (like a random question “how old can voltures become?) he figured it out during the evening and told us the answer the next day. We’ve seen the big five already after two days thanks to Valence. He was a great wildlife spotter and was really willing to go the extra mile (e.g. day one at Tarangire national park we already entered the exit but he heard about a leopard). We drove towards the leopard and we were very lucky to see one hanging in the trees. He made us feel really safe and it was a great experience with him. Every morning felt like we started with a college about the Tanzanian culture in the jeep (we asked him a lot). So for us the experience was not only about seeing the big five, but also about the added value on learning about the country. Accomodations were great (especially Kitela lodge), also the lunch boxes were really good! Amount of animals was impressive, especially in the crater and Tarangire. Great value for money and really good service. Strong knowledge on how to make you feel comfortable. 5 star plus!

This was a perfect Safari with outstanding organsiation and an extremly friendly, knowlegeable guide

We have discovered African Big Cats Safaris in the internet and were immediately impressed by their quick response behavior. The tour was organized to our schedule, but mainly we relied to the expertise of the tour operator - which was a good decision.

A last-minute change - our 18-years-old son arrived one day after us - was managed professionally against a moderated extra-fee. The managing director Immanuel personally picked up our son at Kilimanjaro airport and drove him to the lodge where we spent the 2nd night. This made us feel very good.

The tour itself was impressive and we would always recommend the same itinerary (Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Manyara) with Serengeti/Ngorongoro being the highlight. Our experienced driver Vanance was extremely friendly, customer-oriented (drinks had always the perfect temperature!) and answered really every question we asked – he has such a great knowledge about Tanzanian wildlife and culture. Vanance made us feel very comfortable from the first minute and it was a big pleasure to spend the 5 days with him.

Accommodation was exactly how you expect this from a safari – charming, rustic, clean, very good food, very friendly people around. The car (Landcruiser) was in very good shape and cleaned every evening.

Wildlife is amazing and we even saw the big five – here the professionality of our driver Vanance paid off combined with a little luck!

Managing director Immanuel showed up at the airport before departure to get direct feedback – another good and professional move.

A safari isn’t a cheap event, but we have the impression that we received good value for the money we paid.

We definitely recommend a safari with African Big Cats!

A+ Experience from Start to Finish

We travelled from Thailand to Tanzania for a 3-day safari with African Big Cats. From start to finish the team (Justice, Emmanuel and our amazing guide Valence) were attentive, professional, informative and made us feel very taken care of.
We visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara national parks and saw unbelieveable sights we'll never forget (including the "African Big 5"!).

The team even assisted in booking our flights to Zanzibar. They stuck with us right up to the departure gate (where our guide negotiated with the local baggage handlers for a cheaper overweight charge =)

Highly recommended!
We'll do 5 days, next time...

Adventure of a Lifetime

Our Safari with African Big Cats Safaris was a unique experience. Tanzania with its national parks is a dream come true for us. Our safari guide Lodi had an incredible knowledge of the fauna and flora and amazed us again and again with fascinating stories about the animals. The safari vehicle was in very good condition and the selected accommodations exceeded our expectations. We would book African Big Cats Safaris again anytime and highly recommend this tour operator to everyone! Asante Sana ABCS!

A breathtaking experience made possible by our guide

We originally looked at reviews on Safari Bookings to decide which companies to contact about our upcoming safari. African Big Cats had so many positive reviews. After our experience, we can see why. From start to finish, African Big Cats were fantastic. The communication before the safari was fantastic and when we got to Tanzania it only got better. Our guide, Khaled, was fantastic from start to finish. He had so much knowledge on not just the animals but the surrounding landscapes. He was engaging and we left our tour feeling like we gained a new friend. The hotels we stayed at were 10/10 with the service their being top level and the food provided not only on a night time but for our lunches whilst out on the game drive was next level. We really enjoyed the little extra touches African Big Cats added to (eg. Soda and alcohol selections with lunch as well as water). Also, the manager meeting us on the first night to run through our itinerary and check we were happy then again meeting us at the end to make sure everything was perfect was a nice touch to ensure we had the experience we wanted. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend African Big cats to anyone going and it was definitely good value for money.
