Brilliant Adventures and Safaris: The Ultimate African Wildlife Experience.

Max will make your safari a journey that you will remember forever.

His unwavering passion for wildlife and his amazing ability to take you to the most fascinating places to experience them up close is simply unmatched. With Max by your side, you will quickly realize that he is more than just a tour guide; he is a true master of his craft and an absolute gem. Max is not only incredibly knowledgeable but also an exceptional storyteller who captivated us throughout adventure.

Our adventure took us through four of Tanzania's most renowned national parks, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara, where we were able to experience some of the most spectacular wildlife sightings imaginable. In Tarangire, we were overwhelmed by the large herds of elephants that seemed to be everywhere. The landscape dominated by mighty baobab trees enhanced the feeling of being in a truly wild and unique environment.

On the other hand, the Serengeti National Park offered us a completely different adventure. The vast expanse of seemingly endless savanna dotted with acacia trees, and every encounter with the diverse wildlife was a memory we will never forget. From cheetahs to hyenas to giraffes, every moment was extraordinary. The highlight of our trip was definitely the heart-wrenching moment when a lioness lay right next to our vehicle and looked directly into our eyes – it was an exhilarating and humbling experience we will never forget.

In the Ngorongoro Crater, we felt like we were in the Garden of Eden. We saw giraffes, flamingos, hippos, lions, monkeys, zebras, buffaloes, elephants, and many other animals, all coexisting beyond this world. It was an incredible feeling to be among all these wild animals and simply enjoy nature. We even got to observe one of the last free living rhinos from a distance.

Max's charm, attention to detail, and ability to take us to places where we could experience wildlife up close without disturbing it left us speechless. He impressed and inspired us with his expertise and passion for nature. His contagious enthusiasm for Tanzania's wildlife, birds, and ecosystems was palpable, and we learned more every day.
At Lake Manyara, during our final picnic, we watched an elephant peacefully eating from a tree. Simply wow!!!

Many thanks to the entire Brilliant team for this breathtaking experience that we will never forget. Before we had the safari, all our questions were answered immediately. If you are planning a safari in Tanzania, you should choose Max as your guide.
His expertise, passion for wildlife, and ability to create unforgettable experiences make him an indispensable companion on your journey.
We can only highly recommend him and will definitely choose him again when we next travel to Tanzania.
We can only say: Choose Brilliant - Go Different. Asanteni wote!!!

A safari unforgettable and fantastically beautiful

We were a small group of 5 people and booked a safari with Brilliant Tours in February 2023 and were so positively surprised at how wonderfully everything was organized. It was actually one of the most beautiful travel experiences we had on our Tanzania trip. especially since we had Max Lee with us. the best and nicest guide you can imagine for such an adventure. he has incredible knowledge of all animals and plants and was not only our professional guide but became our dearest friend and companion. Anyone planning a safari should book Brilliant Tours and Max Lee as a guide. you get the very best.
Thanks to the whole Team of Brilliant and especially Max the best guide ever

More than brilliant and with the best safariguide Max!

The planning was a great pleasure from the beginning, our wishes were responded to quickly and very flexibly. We had the best safari guide there is and we can only recommend him to everyone!

Max Lee! His knowledge about the animals, nature, the Maasai people and his warm and open way of passing on his great knowledge made this, our first safari, something very special.

Julieth Wilfried and the whole team were always very flexible and responded quickly to our wishes, the result was a true dream safari!
All accommodations were fantastic.
The safari was simply fantastic, which we of course also owe to our absolutely great safari guide Max.
We were a group of 5 ranging in age from 24 - 64 and learned so much from Max and we highly recommend him to any traveler!

Many thanks to Brilliant Safaris and Max Lee for the unforgettable safari!

Very professional, helpful and kind.

From the first email contact until the end of the trip, Julieth was always very attentive and polite, trying to clarify all doubts and making great suggestions for our trip to be perfect.
When we arrived in Tanzania Joshua was waiting for us, very attentive, and polite, and accompanied us every day until we went to Zanzibar. Joshua amazed us by knowing the flora and fauna so well on safaris, he did his best for us to see the big 5 and we did. He was very professional and very kind.
The suggested hotels were great, very clean, and with wonderful service.

Can't be better, excellent experience , awesome Guide, great hotels and awesome hospitality!!!

I am very glad we found this company. Since the very beginning Julieth , the first person we had contact with was very good, explained every thing in details and gave some good options. All of them were very good. Our Guide, Joshua, was just great! We did a five day Safari trough Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti He didn't just drove us around, he new a lot of the parks , history , the environment , animal behaviors and great histories about the animals . Beyond that he was very polite, attentive and didn't rest until he showed us the big 5 and a lot more. An unstoppable guy. The car was very comfortable ( for an off road for sure), very clean and cold beverages, water and snacks in the car. During the Safari we had good lunch at great places. The experience sleeping in tends inside the park was just great. If you are thinking to do a Safari in Tanzania, those are the guys!!!!

Friendly, helpfull and amazing people and tour!

We booked our tour directly with Brilliant and did not regret it. They were not our cheapest option, but we assessed that we got more for our money - and after our trip can certainly conclude that we feel we got good value for our money.

To start with we missed a connecting flight, making us a day delayed. We could quickly get in touch with Brilliant (Jane) through Whats App, and got arranged our pick up to go directly on our safari.
We were met buy the nicest driver Joshua who were going to be with us on our whole safari (3 days). Joshua was an incredible game driver and guide - simply the sweetest person and so knowledgeable. Together with Joshua we talked about the animals we were most excited to find and see and he tried to find them, even taking us on a long drive to 'rhino land' on the Serengeti - unfortunately no rhinos spotted there - but we saw some ancient cave paintings and singing stones the Masai people once used.
When our trip came to an end, we had seen all the big 5 - even with babies, all thanks to Joshua. And can say that we left the Serengeti feeling we had seen all - and more - that we came for.

Our accommodation was 2 nights at a bush camp, with tents fully equipped with a shower and flush toilet and our last night at a hotel outside Serengeti. Both places were really nice, good food and beds and the staff so welcoming.

We booked a 3 day mid luxury tour to Serengeti and Ngorongoro and can highly recommend doing that with Brilliant!

Awesome! Beyond expectations!

Wow… I would have never thought that I ever be able to make such an experience.
I knew it would be difficult to see all Big 5 but Max ( the best tour guide I could ever wished for) did not just knew everything about the habitats and the animals but he also made it possible to get them all in front of my camera. I know you always got to be lucky to see even one of them but somehow he made it possible to watch every single animal I wished to see. I actually never wrote a review or recommendation for something but this guy made me have my first tears of happiness, so I just have to write this, that anybody who wants to make a safari got the same chance to experience what I experienced. Thank you for everything "Brilliant adventures & Safaris" and especially Maximilian for this beautiful time which I will never forget. Without you the time would have been not even half as good!!
I will be back!

Incredible tour!

Our safari experience was absolutely perfect! Max was the best tour guide we could have hoped for, keeping us safe through the bumpy roads and tailoring all the activities to our exact needs. The vehicles from Brilliant are by far the best we saw throughout our time in the national parks, very luxury with the ability to open doors and windows fully to feel at one with nature. We had the best time visiting all the major national parks, it was the experience of a lifetime thanks to Max and Brilliant!

Amazing safari with Brilliant Adventure and Safaris

Brilliant Adventure and Safari provided one of the best safari experiences of my life. For four days, we traveled to Serengeti and Ngorongoro NPs. Max, our tour guide, was fantastic. His knowledge of the animals and the best viewing spots made the trip everything we could have hoped for.
Jane in the office was extremely helpful and easy to communicate with via e-mail and Whatsapp.
Our safari vehicle was the star of the show; every other guest was staring at us as all the windows were open all around.
Overall, I would recommend Brilliant Adventures and Safaris, particularly Max, to anyone looking for a safari tour.
