Lots to see and we’ll taken care of.
5/5

Communication was quick with multiple options to contact them. Our needs were well attended to. We saw the big 5 which was awesome! Public campsites (specifically Simba campsite at Ngorongoro) were not good, I’d recommend upgrading to tented camps in the nice tents.

Wonderful, breathtaking adventure!
5/5

Me and my four friends booked a 6 day safari plus also three-day hike to mt Meru. I would definitely recommend both to my friends and family. John and his team have a lot of experience and know their business well. Their guides are very knowledgeable, helpful and generally fun to talk with. Moreover, the hotels, food and transports were very good - I didn't seem we had lack of anything. Even when we wanted to alter our plan a little bit, John tried to help us by providing us a fun alternative! Something we very much appreciated. I would however ensure you make clear agreements to ensure you have no suprises during your trip (e.g. food plans, tip amounts, etc.).

Overall a great adventure! Last but not least, Royal tiger and safari tours has very competitive prices, which makes it affordable for all!

Thanks again!

Amazing Safari and unfortgettable hike up Mt Meru
5/5

We can highly recommend John and his company Royal Tiger Tours to organize your adventures in Tanzania. It is a local company, owned by a local and profits generated remain in the country.

We arranged aiport transfers, hotel overnights in Arusha, 4 day safari (Serengeti, Ngorongo, Tarangire) and Mt Meru hike with John and it was a perfect experience.

Mt. Meru trekking:
We went 3Days2Nights. Our guides, porters and chef were amazing and we really appreciated their calmness and experience. Everything was well organized. Especially on peak day (quite tough, to be honest), our guide Philbert was really supportive and great in motivating us to keep on pushing. In addion, they decided that next to the guide also a porter would come up with us, so that in case only one of us two would be able to reach the peak we would get the chance, while the other person would have a guide to return savely - this was great service (however, we were lucky to not need it :))
Generally, the huts, paths, etc. are the same for every tour company, however, the food and friendliness of the people was outstanding and we felt very comfortable with this setup.

Safari (Serengeti, Ngorongo Crater, Tarangiere):
As with the trekking, also the safari was perfectly organized and an unforgettable experience! In particular, our guide/driver Esron (Ezron?) was a real expert with lots of experience and good stories to share. With his help we were able to spot many animals, including the big5. It felt generally very safe and reliable. Can also highly recommend (even though its the budget option) to opt for sleeping in tents within the national parks (w/o fence). Tents and equipment is good standard and we were able to hear a lot of wildlife around us during night - definetely a special feeling!
From our experience, Serengeti and Ngorongo Crater were amazing! Tarangire was very good, too, however as this was our last day after a few long days before, it felt not as impressive as the other 2. This is however not to say its not worth a visit. Maybe its more impressive if the tour were to start in Tarangire and then would went on to the other 2.

One minor thing I would propose to change for John: We really liked the concept that there is no plastic bottles allowed during the Mt Meru trekking / Arusha Nationalpark. This could be applied for the safari as well, e.g. having a big water gallon (20 liters or so) in the car rather than small bottles - this would leave less potential of trash ending-up in the park.

Thank you and your colleagues again for a great time!!
Cheers

Trip to Remember
5/5

I was extremely impressed with the customer service given by the whole team. I could tell they wanted to make this the best experience for us and they did not fail to do so. They accommodated our special requests and resolved any problems we had during the tour. This was first-class service. Their attention made it a trip to remember.

Amazing experience!
5/5

We chose 3-days safari in Serengeti & Ngorongoro and it was something unforgettable.
I must admit that I liked cooperation with this agency since the very beginning. John responded on my e-mails very quickly, answering all questions and doubts. He was very helpful and communicative. Once our plane landed in Arusha we didn’t have to worry about anything. John helped with picking us up and organized an accommodation in a nice and clean hotel. Next day we set out to Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We travelled by nice and spacious car, everybody had a window view and access to open roof.
Our guide Waldon was very professional, he knew everything about wildlife - he shared with us many interesting facts about animal’s life, he was great in finding them. Apart from this, he is just a cool guy :)
Also our cook Justine did his best to make us happy - every day he prepared all meals for us and it wasn’t a simple cuisine. I was surprised by few courses dinner, lunch and delicious crepes and omelettes on breakfast.
During whole trip the atmosphere was wonderful, we could see that everybody put so much effort to make us happy and safe.
I can highly recommend Royal Tigers Tours and Safaris and I hope I’ll be back here with my family :)

Best safari ever!!!!
5/5

It was really amazing! We had so much fun, and during the whole time we felt very safe and fully taken care of. Our guide Frank was just the best! He told us all about the animals and made our experience unforgettable. He knew all the best spots, where and when to find the animals, his knowledge is vast! The food was delicious and we never felt hungry, thanks to our chef Masawi. All the campsites were nice and comfortable, but we would recommend to bring more warm clothes just in case. The whole trip starting day one was just perfect, everybody were super nice and friendly. We definitely recommend this safari tour company to everyone! Perfect value for money/quality!

An unforgettable and amazing experience!
4/5

We had a lovely time on safari, exploring the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. We were lucky and saw the big 5, including lots of other animals! Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly, and so was John, who we booked with.
One small negative was miscommunication with our driver, who suggested some other activities we could partake in, such as visiting the Maasai and having walking tour through a local village. Unfortunately we were quoted the wrong price for the Maasai, and then we were unaware of the cost of the walking tour (other people in our safari enquired and so we went along with it). We felt both were expensive and had we known the full details, we probably would not have chosen to do them. Our driver apologised and offered to make up the rest of the payment for the walking tour.
We would say just be clear on expectations and prices.
Apart from this, we would wholeheartedly recommend going on safari with this company, who were very friendly and made sure we were satisfied.

Great Safari, highly recommend
5/5

We did the Serengeti & Crater 2 night 3 day tour. We had a really good time. John did a great job organizing everything for us, including hotels in Arusha and a very early morning airport drop off. Our guide was accommodating, and our chef was fantastic. We consistently had the best food of all the group. The tents and sleeping bags were good. Overall a great value tour in an amazing part of the world. Royal Tiger Tours is certainly one of the best budget operators in Tanzania.
