A great safari well fitted for us and with a great guide !

We were 3 French friends coming to Tanzania and we were hesitating between several safari companies just a few days before beginning our trip. The responsiveness of Jane and the program she proposed us made us choose Brillant Adventures and Safaris and we definitely don't regret it !!
We chose the 5 days program, including Tarangire Park, Manyara Lake, Serengeti Park and Ngorongoro Crater and it was perfect for us ! The night spent inside the Serengeti Park was very impressive ! During the 5 days, we saw a lot of different animals, and especially the big 5 !! Our guide, Pascal, was great ! He speaks English and French so it was really convenient for us. He was very nice and we could feel that he has been a safari guide for several years.
So thanks again to Jane and Pascal, it will be an experience we won't forget !!

High quality safari trip provider to see the best spots in Tanzania

Firstly, we spent quite a bit of time reviewing and messaging various safari companies. But the moment we spoke to Jane at Brilliant Safari we knew we were in safe hands.

The company is young relative to other providers hence they have fewer reviews, but don't let that put you off at all.

Their professionalism, communication, quality of their vehicles and the guide we had were superb. I have done quite a lot of safari trips before but they arranged this trip perfectly.

They also added some really nice touches to the trip like giving us matching safari hats to commence, providing plenty of snacks and a cool box full of water and soft drinks that lasted us throughout the trip.

Gabriel, our guide, was hugely experienced and very knowledgeable. We felt like we were in safe hands straight away and he seemed to understand behavioural aspects of the animal's in such a way that we stayed for longer in certain situations to catch more action.

The communication with Jane was excellent throughout and they even dropped us back at Kilimanjaro airport to help us on our flight out of Tanzania.

Amazing experience

Jane was very helpful and made us feel comfortable. The safari was incredible. We saw the big 5 and many animals up close. Our guide, Pascal (who speaks English and French), is a very good driver, he knows everything about the local culture and wildlife and was very kind to us. Thanks again to Pascal!

Just amazing

Max and Jane were absolutely wonderful and took very good care of us through out the trip. After reaching out to a few companies for safari, we found Jane to be very easy to communicate and she was very prompt and responding with options that were suitable for us given it was a last minute plan. After our trip, it was clear that it was the best possible itinerary since we got to cover a lot of places without tiring ourselves out.

Our safari guide was max and he was amazing throughout. Max is very professional and has a lot of knowledge on animal behavior. He drove us from arusha to north Serengeti via central Serengeti and we were surprised how well he knows all the routes in Serengeti even where there are no sign boards. He ensured that we were at the right spots during our game drives for catch sight of interesting activities. He gave us a lot of information during the game drive about the breed, lifestyle, eating habits and other interesting facts on each Anil and bird we came across. It was one of the best trips I have ever had and my wife has the same to say.

Safari Guide is First Class

Good organisation and client management from the central booking team. But we feel the difference is the quality of the guide. Gabriel the Senior Guide made us feel safe and gave us as a family the most rounded education of Tanzania - not just about the animals but the country, people, geography - just amazing!! The vehicle was safe and reliable and very comfortable for our family of 4.

Transparent, trustworthy company that delivers what they promises.

We spent seven days on our safari across Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro and we had the best experience with Brilliant Adventures and Safaris. We had heard a lot of horror stories about safari companies swindling foreigners in Tanzania so honestly, we were quite unsure of how our experience would be, but Brilliant Adventures just made it brilliant. We were picked up from our Arusha Airbnb by the ever-smiling Max, our tour guide, with a large bouquet of roses since we were on our honeymoon and we were even given nice hats for the safari. These thoughtful things really made us feel special. The car was clean and comfortable and lined with bottles of mineral water, snacks and soda for our convenience. Each day we had picnic lunch in the national parks where Maximillian would set up the table impeccably with a tablecloth, plates, cutlery and absolutely yummy food that he had thoughtfully got cooked for us. He kept in mind our food preferences and made sure the lunch each day was a complete treat.
Max turned out to be great company for us too and made sure we got to see everything possible in the national park. He would quickly rush us to the spot where one could see wildlife and patiently wait till, we wanted to be around. His knowledge and driving to as per our needs, to ensuring that even during the trip our needs were met.
In fact we had contacted about 10-12 tour operators before finalizing on Brilliant Adventures as they offered the best prices for the lodges we had selected. And we were so happy we decided to go with Brilliant Adventures We cannot recommend Brilliant Adventures and Safaris enough.

Nothing short of amazing!

Unforgettable Experience on our honeymoon
We did a 10 days tour on Tanzania for our honeymoon with our AMAZING guide Maximillian. Everything was very well planned by our consultant Jane; we had a good balance of difference activities between game drive and walking safaris. It was THE BEST trip! Maximillian was the best guide, chasing the animals constantly so that we could see as many animals as possible and have the best safari experience.

Maximillian always made sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable with the plan and how our trip was going. All the hotels and activities planned were an amazing surprise. Our car always had as many sodas, snacks, wine and waters as we needed during our travels, something I really appreciated.
Thank you, Brilliant Adventures and Safaris, for an amazing trip.

The best safari trip

The strap line for Brilliant Adventures and Safaris is ‘go different’ Whilst on our safari, I did not expect to discover a hippo beside the road, 30 seconds after I put my camera away. I did not expect to discover a glass of wine with my spaghetti Bolognese for lunch on day 2. I did not expect to discover a lion cub with its face covered in zebra blood, and I did not expect to discover so much information about the animals, the national parks and the people of Tanzania. But thanks to our guide, Max, we learnt so much throughout our 7-day safari. For every question I asked, even if it sounded silly, his answer always gave an explanation I would never have known. He drove for hours, stopped whenever we asked, and we always believed our holiday was safe in his hands. Brilliant Adventures and Safaris came across as a professional operator, with a briefing at the start of our safari and I would recommend both the organisation and Max without hesitation

She was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable.

We have just returned from the most wonderful safari and cannot thank Brilliant Adventures and Safaris enough for their excellent organization and customer service. From our initial contact with Jane, the professionalism shone through. Gabriel, our driver/guide, was very knowledgeable and experienced and made us feel at ease from the start. Nothing was too much trouble in making our safari an experience to remember for ever. Their safari vehicle is spectacular with unique features which made our game drive experience one of a kind. I would not hesitate to recommend Brilliant Adventures and Safaris and hope to do another safari with them in the future.

Brilliant Adventures and Safaris made our family dream come true.
Our family experienced a trip of a lifetime in March 2022 when we travelled to
Tanzania with Brilliant Adventures and Safaris! Gladys at Brilliant Adventures and Safaris was amazing to work with and created an itinerary just right for us. Gabriel, our guide, was fantastic! We are convinced he knows every person and animal in Tanzania. His knowledge of the country, its history, its people, and the animals that live there is immense. We travelled for over two weeks with Gabriel as our guide. We were able to visit the wild animal parks, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, we saw, lions, rhinos, giraffes, elephants, leopards, warthogs, hippos, dik-diks, zebras, birds of all kinds and so much more! The lodges were fantastic, and the Tanzanian people were friendly and kind. Gladys also made our travel and lodging arrangements for a visit to Zanzibar after our safari. It was an amazing trip! We are grateful to Brilliant Adventures and Safaris, Gladys, and Gabriel for giving us a trip that our family will remember forever!
