Superb experience with an incredible guide

We had the trip of a lifetime!

Great communication when booking and before the trip. Even when we had to postpone our trip due to COVID they remembered our initial booking. Very reliable.

The trip (11 days southern circuit) itself was amazing. Mansoor is a great guide, knows so much about all the animals, culture and nature. He is kind, patient and very helpful.

Thank you Mansoor for making our trip unforgettable. We hope to see you next time (for the northern circuit)

We have spent 3 wonderful days in Serengeti NP with our tour guide Murshid. He did his absolute best to show us the amazing animals that wander in Serengeti and to stand still on the best view spots, to be as close as possible and being able to make pictures. We slept in a tent and could hear the animals at night. Our cook was very sweet and called himself ‘a stomach engineer’, which he was. I am a vegetarian which has not been a difficulty at all, since Freddy (the stomach engineer) cooked delicious meals without meat.
Big thanks to Murshid and Freddy for guiding us and filling our stomachs, as well as to Mansoor for looking at all our options before making the booking.
Asante sana!

excellent 3-day safari from African Pangolin

We took the 3-day 2-night Mikumi/Udzungwa tour from African Pangolin. We were originally booked for this tour in May 2020, but all travel fell apart with the coronavirus, and we had to cancel. Mansoor from Pangolin was great with communication leading up to our 2020 ticket, and then also when the trip got cancelled. We stayed in touch, and when 2023 gave the green light for the tour, we booked again with Pangolin and were very glad to finally be able to make the safari. Mansoor is professional, prompt, and personal in setting up the experience. Highest recommendation.

Our driver/guide for the safari and trekking adventure was Zakaria. He speaks English very well, is a great driver, and has very deep knowledge of biology, particularly of the large animals, birds, and plants. Zakaria is a personable guy who made for great company for three days. The Land Cruiser we rode in is a very tough vehicle that could handle all the road conditions. Everything was very safe.

The safari itself was a fantastic experience. It was the late stage of the rainy season, but we were fortunate that we didn't have rain. The parks were almost empty of people, and just full of the big animals. They were everywhere; very little time passed between encounters. I suppose we were quite lucky, but the adventure was everything we could expect and more. Many, many giraffes and zebras, sometimes together. Impala, eland, water buffalo, warthogs, baboons, wildebeest, jackals, crocodile, monkeys, hippopotamus, many birds. Two lions together, right next to our vehicle, that we observed for a long time. Close-range elephants. Amazing looks from the Land Cruiser.

The hike up to the falls in Udzungwa the next day was very nice, if a little challenging on the way up. It's a long drive to and from Mikumi NP, so we had a chance to see a lot of village life in rural Tanzania that one does not see in Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar City. The mid-range accommodations were quite comfortable, and the meals were very good. Safaris are quite expensive, but this 3-day expedition was good value for the money. Great driver/guide, great service, reliable company.

Pangolins Safaris is an excellent operator which will match your expectations.

We had a wonderful experience with Pangolin Safaris. We took the three days Safari in Mikumi with night game drive and added a day for a hike in Udzungwa. They were very flexible and efficient in adapting the program keeping the trip at a very good price. Our driver Yunus drove us smoothly through Tanzanian tricky roads and thanks to his thorough knowledge of the park and animals we didn't miss anything of the great show of nature in the park. Overall it was a great experience wich perfectly matched our expectations.

Excellent company

We did a 6-day safari with African Pangolin Safaris and our experience was excellent. Our guide Yunus took great care of us and did his best to show the best parts of the park, at the best time of the day.
A full week safari is a good way to enjoy the country and its different parks.
Our trip included Mikumi, Nyegere and Udzungwa with a mix of game drive, boat safari and walks.
Very well organised.
Definitely recommend.

The most fantastic safari company in Tanzania, so good I went twice.

Myself and some friends travelled with pangolin safari in 2019 completing the southern circuit. My experience was do incredible I choose to go back with our guide Mansoor on my return to complete kilimanjaro and thr Northern circuit for safari. I would really recommend this tour company as they are extremely reliable, organised, punctual, have good communication and they love love love what they do. In turn you see amazing things, once in a lifetime opportunities and moments you will never forget. Like seeing the big 5. Thank you Mansoor and Pangolin safaris.

The tour operator was professional, knowledgeable and highly organized.

After researching and comparing other safari companies , I decided on African Pangolin, and I do not regret my decision. I feel like everything from the booking process to actual safari tour was organized and handled professionally. I felt like I was gettting the best value for my money. The tour was super fun and we saw lots of animals. Pick up & drop off went smoothly as well. It was one of the highlights of my trip.
