Highly professionals loving their very unique Country yet committed to share It with us/clients
5/5

From Responsible travel, I was given Ann´s contact, with whom it became my pleasure to organize our trip. Communications were soon very easy and information provided always clear and up to the point regarding my questions/requests. After many mails back and forth we agreed on a trip plan and budget (I am very picky but Ann is extremely nice).
I must say that the whole trip was an awe inspiring experience, more than I ever expected. Arusha, Tarangire and Central Serengeti National Park are stunning both in what concerns the diverse scenery, even inside the parks and the richness of animal life. The later Parks are huge and deserve longer stays; I wish I had that previous knowledge when I did the planning, although I made the right decision in staying 3 nights inside Serengeti. Not at all enough, I guess that 6 nights at least in 2 different lodges might be a better option. However I never asked Ann, because she always answered honestly and straightforward.
All lodges had different levels of good service/food and facilities, yet one of the treasured unexpected experiences is that Tanzanian people are naturally friendly with an unassuming disposition to fulfill our requests or expectations; everything is very clean, in or outside the lodges.
Hence preparation/information were reliable and what we finally experienced was worth every penny.
BUT, it was the Human factor which raised the whole trip to a much higher, impossible to describe level. This refers to the drivers/Guides we had. Nathan only 1 day for Arusha, afterwards ABU; both are excellent in knowledge of everything, from animals to those devious twisting unpaved roads. Of course ABU took care of us for a much longer period and we became very attached to ABU, always in good mood, sweet, caring, attentive with (in his words) an "intuition to suspect were less common animals would be". Just imagine a full list of good, positive characteristics to ascertain to ABU; of course we became friends, impossible not to; we miss him.
In short, I am well traveled thus I recognize a great trip; I am certain that I will return for a longer, less rushed tour with the same TEAM: Ann+ her terrific Guides, ABU if at all possible.
THIS WAS A GREAT TRIP! THANKS.

A tour with expertise, knowledge and heart
5/5

Longway Expeditions are a provider with heart
The team are a friendly and family community collective that went over and above to create a personal experience which offers all the elements of a dream trip and more
During the booking process Anna ensured all my questions, aspirations and budget needs were met. Her communication always friendly and upon meeting Anna upon arrival, I felt like I was meeting a friend
The little details are everything e.g. a welcome pack gift, messages after trips to check-in to collect feedback felt genuine and caring
My main guide Nathan was exceptional. He was attentive to my style of exploration and adventure and adapted to this e.g. changing lunch plans so I could explore town life, taking longer at certain destinations because I favored the view/animals
How wonderful it felt to have the entire Longway Expeditions team come to the airport to bid me farewell
I departed hoping, vowing to return with my family one day, so they could meet the Longway Expedition family and friends team which I class as dear friends, who gave me magic moments that will last a lifetime
No words can express my gratitude to Abu, Anna and Nathan

Very professional
5/5

The Safari exceeded our expectations entirely, great experience!

My friends and I had great time from the first day to the last day. We toured Tarangire and Manyara. We were able to tour Arusha City in between too where we stopped at local food places from tandoori chicken joint, samaki makange (fish with vegetable gravy and some local herbs, spices) to nyama choma spots (grilled meat), appetizing breakfast etc! Excellent hotel services, mouth watering picnic meals, AND PROFESSIONAL TOUR GUIDE. It was an incredible experience. We also stopped on the way a couple of times times to support local vendors! We didn't feel rushed at all, or pressured to see animals. Our guide was fantastic. He drove safely and was knowledgeable, and passionate about his job. He was patient and great with the all of us. Also the vehicle was in great condition. We are planning to go back soon for a longer safari!

Abu is the friendliest guide you could ask for
5/5

After weeks of research on different safari options, we decided to go with Long Way Expeditions, and are very thankful we did so. We wanted a locally owned and operated family team that respected and protected wildlife, and Long Way excelled all our expectations. Abu and Ann were wonderful to us throughout the whole experience. They helped us customize our trip to meet all our goals, which included a camping tour through Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro crater. They demonstrated a keen interest in the health and welfare of the wildlife, compassion for their community, and were so very friendly to us. We were also happy to learn that through their business they support their communities with education programs for underserved families, and have many great animal protection programs in the works. 10/10 I would recommend Long Way Expeditions for your next adventure. Asante sana Abu and Ann!

Cross the country!
5/5

My family was able to do the cross country tour with longway! Abu the owner was our guide and his positivity and knowledge was a true highlight of the trip. We really enjoyed the cross country travel as it got us away from the heavily trafficked areas to more
rural and authentic locations. The usambara mountains were a highlight as well as lake Chala and visiting a quiet part of the coastline. Thank you Abu and Ann for making our trip to Tanzania a great experience!

Beautiful animal and human encounters
5/5

I was fortunate to travel to Tanzania in January 2020 and to be guided by Abu who is considerate. From Lake Victoria, to Serengeti, in the crater of N'Gorongoro and to Lake Manyara Abu knows how to observe and find the magnificent animals that inhabit his country. In English or French he can explain the life of the bush. I keep the memory of beautiful spaces and the kindness of Abu, I hope to be able to return to Tanzania to witness the migration of wildebeest, zebras ... guided by Abu.

Great Safari to Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater
5/5

We very much enjoyed our two-day Safari with LongWay. Abu did a great job explaining everything, answering questions, and giving us great views of the animals. We based out of Farm of Dreams in Karatu which I also recommend if you are going to visit Lake Manyara or the Crater.
Thank you Ann and Abu!

Unforgettable week in the Serengeti
5/5

My friend and I spent one unforgettable week with Abu in the central and north Serengeti last August. I was expecting a lot from this Safari and all my expectations were filled. Everyday has its own surprises and memorable moments. the landscapes were astonishing and the wildlife thriving. Abu made sure that we were the first on the go and the last back at the camp everyday to enjoy the most of our days. Abu is a very kind, interesting and knowledgeable person who has been trying very hard to give us unforgettable memories and we are grateful to him. Thanks to him we saw the migration, did a walking tour and enjoyed incredible views and moments on the vast plains of the Serengeti

I strongly recommend anyone willing to go on a safari to travel with Longway expedition. Ann will make sure to support you on your travel planning while you are abroad and reveals to be of great help. And for those of you who have enough time, they are also offering trips to the Lushoto area which is astonishingly beautiful.
