Amazing experience!
5/5

Since many years ago, a safari in Africa was a dream for me. My wife and I finally made it happen last December. We went for a 3 day safari in the Serengeti and the Ngorogoro crater. I did a lot of research and decided to book it with Safari Soles, which was a great decision.
During previous days, Bryson answered to our questions by WhatsApp so it made planning easier for us.
Once arriving there, they picked us up in Kilimanjaro Airport, to start a drive to Arusha were we met with the rest of the group. Their hospitality was great, our guide/driver Jacob is a very nice guy, always willing to give us a pleasant experience. The tour also included the services from a cook for the meals, which were fine.
We had luck to see many (MANY) animals such as: lions, leopards, elephants, hipos, rhinos, jiraffes, zebras, bufalos, hienas, etc.
I consider December is a very good time to visit Tanzania, since the temperatures are not too hot, and the landscape is very green.
The camping experience was also great for both nights.
At the end, they took us back to Kilimanjaro to our hotel to complete an unforgetable experience.

Wonderful Safari & excellent crew!
5/5

We had an absolutely amazing trip! Bryson was very detail-oriented and communicated quickly and he organized a really wonderful tour. Our guide David, and cook Dula are both the "babalao" (the best of the best!).

-We saw the big 5 (really close!) And so many more! And we always felt safe and well-informed.

-The meals are incredible- multiple courses, freshly baked bread and cookies - yes, Dula baked us cookies to eat before our sunrise drive in the Serengeti.

-The truck they used was strong and reliable - and David was always the driver/truck that helped other drivers get unstuck. He knows his animals and his way around an engine, meaning you are in great hands in case of any issues. David is also just such a friendly wonderful guy, so we loved spending time with him.

-The truck had a power outlet, and a fridge (stocked with water, beer, and local wine).

-Most importantly - Bryson put together a group of customers that were our age and fun to be around, so it really made the mood of our trip fun and positive.

All and all: a fantastic team and an absolute dream trip. These guys know what they are doing.
If you want to book a quality camping safari - book here!

Asante sana rafiki!

5 Day Camping Safari - Amazing Experience!
5/5

My wife and I just completed a 5 Day Tarangire/Serengeti/Ngorongoro Camping Safari. We were in communication with Bryson throughout the process and he answered all of our questions and was super helpful. Booking from Canada in advance with no way of distinguishing one operator from another, this was very valuable and gave us confidence that Safari Soles was a reputable outfit.

Our Jeep was at capacity with 6 people and the ride was still super comfortable. We are both vegetarian and Chef Dulla accommodated us and everyone else in style. Plenty of delicious food (4 course dinners).

Our guide David was phenomenally knowledgeable and entertaining. A great driver who always got us into the best view spots. We saw all “Big 5” animals including 4 of the rare Black Rhino. Cheetah, Lions, leopards, you name it.

Bryson, David and Dulla are the ultimate trio and I couldn’t recommend the company and this particular tour highly enough. The experience exceeded our expectations in every way and never felt like a “budget” Safari. We wouldn’t do it any other way! I know our 4 Safari mates feel the same way.

The best choice
5/5

The safari tour through ‘safari soles tours’ was the best experience of my life. The nature of Serengeti, Tarangire, and Ngorongoro were great, and the animals we met were very beautiful. It's all thanks to Bryson.

I made an urgent decision for my trip. So I didn't have enough time to make a reservation. In that situation, Bryson answered very quickly and kindly I asked for. The reasonable price was also very attractive.

I still can't forget the impression of the safari. Thank you very much for leaving such memories. If friends around me go to Tanzania, I will introduce them to The safari soles tours. If I go again in the future, I will choose this company(Bryson) without hesitation. Someday I'll go again!

The best !!!
5/5

I recommend Safari soles for many reasons:
Bryson is very cool person and was always available and responded to all our questions immediately during the preparations and the trip. He arranged a ride from and to the Kilimanjaro airport for us.
We had a flight directly after the Safari , he made sure we got to the airport on-time.
The safari tour itself was perfect , our driver Ninah the best Driver, was very skilled and made sure we saw the big 5 and more. Food was yummy .

Thanks Bryson and for all other guys.

Fantastic five day camping safari
5/5

Safari Soles provided us with an excellent safari experience. It’s staff was responsive and professional but also very positive and likable, which is important when you’re spending several days with them.

Bryson was great about communication - quick to provide the requested quote and to answer my questions. David Simba, our driver/guide, is obviously very experienced - his ability to spot animals and his knowledge about them was amazing. Our trained chef, Dulla, prepared fabulous meals. I didn’t expect multi-course meals while on a camping safari!

The safari exceeded our expectations in every way. I explained about the communication and food above but on a safari it all comes down to the animals. We got fantastic views of SO many types of animals, including both predators and grazers. David made it even more interesting by explaining about the behaviors we observed. Especially memorable moments for me included seeing lion cubs peering from their rocky perch, two female lions on a high point grooming each other, a mother cheetah teaching her four cubs to hunt and seeing a baby zebra walk on wobbly legs minutes after it had been born.

Safari Sole is the way to go!
5/5

Bryson was wonderful to work with. He was always available and responded to all our questions immediately both before and during our trip. He arranged a ride from and to the Kilimanjaro airport for us. He was at our hotel at 5:00 am and made sure we got to the airport on-time.
Our driver Florian was very skilled and made sure we saw the big 5 and more. Our chef Dula made yummy food for us!
The weather was cold and it rained throughout the two nights we were camping! Perhaps another time of year would be better.
Thank you Bryson, Florian, and Dula!

Amazing experience in my life
4/5

Safari tour in Africa was one of my wishes in my life.
I was looking for a tour company for it and chose this company because of timely replies from Bryson.
The safari tour itself was perfect.
I saw a lot of animals and almost of big five except rhino and experienced wild life of animals by myself.
During the tour, I could see the driver, Chery he did his best to satisfy us and the cook, Thula also.
But there were some inconvenience to me.
One is the hotel before safari tour and the other is some supplies for camping like towel, soap and so on.
It was free but the hotel was too small for 2 persons, noisy not proper place for foreigners.
And it was not informed that I had to bring a few things for camping.

Thankyou ky :), we are happy you enjoyed the trip with us & welcome you again to tour with us in future but (i owe future clients an explanation on the inconvenience on your side) the hotel we use is the greatest value option for budget travellors we use more comfort hotels for our mid range packages & even luxury hotel for a luxury tour package.
on your last day you opted to arrange your own accomodation we then informed you on mid range & luxury ones you opted for the luxury but to point one thing out is you choice of accomodation would have cost us half(50%) of the budget safari tour fee (for 2 nights before & after safari).

To our future clients who will book a budget trip all accomodations through the tour are upgradeable at your own
& it is important to know accomodation is one of factor to distinguish a budget, mid range & luxury tours other factors considered are privacy, fly in park options etc
thankyou & welcome again
