The best team I have ever travel with (and I have traveled)

The walking safaris and the day Kilimanjaro hike were unforgettable experiences, and we have so many wonderful memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Your team's attention to detail and professionalism throughout the trip was exceptional. I appreciated how well-organized everything was, and it was clear that a lot of thought and planning had gone into the itinerary. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable and the food was delicious.

I cannot thank our guides, particularly Abu, enough for their expertise and enthusiasm. They were knowledgeable about the wildlife and the local culture, and they made the entire experience even more enjoyable. They were accommodating and ensured that we were safe and comfortable throughout the trip.

Ann the head of the customer service team was extremely responsive and helpful in answering my queries before and during the trip. Your team's professionalism and dedication to ensuring a great experience for your customers are truly commendable.

Overall, we had an incredible experience with Long Way Expeditions, and I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to explore Tanzania. Thank you once again for providing us with an unforgettable adventure.

LongWay Expeditions thrive to share with us their knowledge/love of Tanzanian wondrous wildlife

I got acquainted with Ann+Abu (the knowledgeable organizers) via Responsible Travel in 2022. Communications with both are very easy since they are both very professional and have a great command of English, both spoken and written. Via many e-mails, I did organize with Ann my first trip with my son and in-law which we thoroughly enjoyed during 8 days in early September 2022; Abu was the attentive and caring Driver/Guide. During our many conversations Abu mentioned the Migration calving in Ndutu area as something very special. A few months after my return I started friendly communications with Ann in order to organize my solo safari, this time 10 days which just happened in February. I have enjoyed safaris before, but the inner quality, professionalism and care of Abu raise these safaris to another level of friendly interaction where we learn to appreciate animal behavior details, that enhance the whole experience. This time I always stayed inside the Parks: 1 day Tarangire, 4 days Ndutu, 2 days central Serengeti, it was awesome. I must say that I never read anything about Tanzania tourism, hence these wondrous experiences rely on their profound knowledge and love of Tanzania. I cannot wait to go again with my new friends ANN and ABU to those mesmerizing Tanzanian Parks. I know how extremely reliable they are in every sense, organize safaris with great care both in the perspective of enjoying the diversity of scenery and animals whilst paying attention to the client budget and choice of Parks and Lodge .

Super Safari experience

We had a great time with Abu on the safari. Abu is very patient and we saw so many nice animals really close to us.

Great Experience with LongWay Expeditions

We went on a 4 day safari as a family of 3 (2 adults + child) with LongWay Expeditions. They were recommended to us by a UK Travel Agent "Responsible Travel" as their local partner. It was important for us to be able to tailor the length of the trip and locations to our needs, as well as to travel with a local tour operator. Ann has been very accommodating and helped us pick the best options, and was available to answer the queries as and when needed. We ended up picking the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Lake Manyara; all completely different and absolutely worth visiting.

Nathan is a brilliant guide, not only did we see lots of animals, but his approach was very environmentally conscious and ethical. This was also of extreme importance to us when choosing a tour operator for our safari trip, and I can say I've sadly witnessed some other operators bending over backwards to satisfy the request of their customers, sometimes at the expense of safety or potential harm to wildlife.

We really appreciated Ann checking in on us before the start of the tour and afterwards, and loved the welcome gift!

I'll definitely be recommending LongWay Expeditions to friends and family!

LongWay Expeditions are a fantastic team, so well organize and friendly

My family and I did a custom made trip to the parks in the North of Tanzania (Arusha NP, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara) with LongWay Expeditions. It was once in a live experience! Everything was really well organized by Ann and the drivers, Abu and Nathan, were fantastic. They are all so knowledgeable and helpful. We saw an incredible amount of animals in very different environments. This is a trip I would recommend to everyone who love safaris.
I am looking forward to visit Tanzania again with the LongWay expedition team.

Unforgettable journey!

We found Longway Expeditions via Responsible Travel and they organised our 6-day Safari through Lake Natron, Serengeti park and Ngorongoro crater.

Ann is a great manager which welcomes you very kindly and is great at organising the trip and accommodation.

Abu, the driver, was the best. He’s very experienced, knows a lot and he’s so very passionate when telling us about the culture, history and nature of the places we visited. We also always felt very safe at all times during the journey.
Also, he’s so fun! :)

Accommodations were all above expectations and the people we’ve met were always very welcomed and made us feel at home. To dive in the culture of the place was a very genuine experience that we will never forget.

Asante Sana Ann and Abu!

Couldn't Be Happier With Our Choice!

We found Long Way Expeditions via Responsible Travel. From the moment we approached them for our Safari trip, communications with Ann were always extremely prompt and detailed. We had many many questions and Ann has been fantastic in helping us find the best itinerary for us.

We booked a 6-day Safari that included Lake Natron, Serengeti and Ngoro Ngoro Crater. When we arrived for our Safari we were greeted at Arusha Airport by our Safari guide Abu and later briefed in detail by Ann; we immediately felt at home and well taken care of.

Our accommodations throughout the trip were all very special, with the kindest staff and best service - extremely good value for money. These lodges and camps also provided our lunch for throughout the Safari days - they were very good-quality and well-balanced meals.

Abu is very tuned into his profession. He is an attentive and extremely reliable driver and guide. He has great respect for the land as well as exceptional knowledge. We learned a lot about the history of the land and tribes and the company ensures that all activities are organized responsibly with locals - a very authentic trip.

We travelled in a group of 4, but soon felt as if Abu was the missing 5th member of our group on the trip. We all got along very well and we hope to see him and Ann again very soon!

We would highly recommend travelling with Long Way Expeditions. They are friendly, authentic, responsible, ethical and very very kind :)

Thanks for everything!

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

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.

A tour with expertise, knowledge and heart

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
