Simply amazing. Right value for money. Not a single regret
5/5

We did an 8-day safari with Safari soles in November and can't recommend it enough. Everything was great, starting from the planning, Happiness was super helpful and always available, she helped us get a tailored plan to our ideal trip and budget; to the logistics in Tanzania, the pickup and lodges/ hotels selection, to of course the safarai, Elias is a great guide, he was super friendly and professional, he made sure we're satisfied with the game everyday, we felt like traveling with a friend. We were lucky to see all big 5 and much much more thanks to Elias' eagle eyes and experience in the area to not miss any animal, also he's quite knowledgeable so we learned a lot during the game.
We also really enjoyed the bike tour in Mto Wa Mbu with Noah, it gave us the opportunity to experience the local culture. All in all, it was an amazing trip and right value for the price.

Our expectations were exceeded!
5/5

Our expectations were exceeded! We had the safari of a lifetime with the dream team of Simon as our guide and Action as our cook. The combination of the three parks Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro was perfect. The Camping was a once in a lifetime experience where I always felt safe thanks to our guide Simon and his knowledge. Absolutely recommendable! Every day was a mission with lots of good food, fun, action (

Incredible Safari!
5/5

It was an incredible safari! Many thanks to our guide Simon and our cook Action. The combination was perfect for us! We spent four days travelling together through three parks with two nights in a tent. An experience we will never forget. Simon was with us on the Big Five mission and we saw them all! Thanks to his knowledge and his seventh sense. We learnt a lot and the elephants at camp in the morning were just one of the highlights! Having Action as our cook was just wow! We all came back 5kg heavier - we definitely felt that way. It was unbelievable what he conjured up for us.
Thank you guys so much! We felt like a team and were sad when it was over. I hope we come back again!

Best trip of our lives with the best safari company there is!
5/5

We just got back from the most amazing honeymoon trip all thanks to Safarisoles. Every single aspect about Safarisoles was perfect and they have truly exceeded all of our expectations!

Starting with the planning process, Renatus made everything so easy, he accommodated all of our needs and was always quick to respond. All costs were very reasonable, and all queries were answered well. He has everything booked and organized for us so we had nothing to worry about when we arrived.

On our first day in Arusha, we were picked up by the lovely Baltazary. He is such a kind and fun person to be around and took us around on a wonderful tour of Arusha. He is so knowledgeable, and taught us all about Tanzanian culture, history and answered all of our questions. You can tell how passionate he is about his job and it felt like we had known him for a long time by the end of the day.

Then we started our Safari trip, we were lucky enough to have Isaack as our guide during this time. Isaack is one of the most genuine people we have ever met, he is professional, extremely knowledgeable and wonderfully kind. We always called our time with him the lucky safari, but really, it is all thanks to Isaack’s profuse experience. You could tell that he knew all the national parks, especially the Serengeti inside out. He had great instincts, and would always take us on less travelled roads for spectacular sightings. He is always so eager to show us as much as he can, and got us the best views. He could answer every single question we asked, no matter how niche; he is also a great and very safe driver. We loved spending everyday with him, chatting during our drives and having lovely dinners together at our lodges. He now feels like a very good friend of ours, and it was honestly very emotional saying goodbye at the end of our safari days. In general, the safari was organized impeccably- all our accommodations were amazing, we had wonderful hot lunches everyday, and the jeep was top notch, with unlimited drinks (inc beer/win) in our mini fridge, the seats were comfortable and spacious.

On our last day with Safarisoles, we did a day trip to the Kilimanjaro foothills where we hiked to Materuni waterfalls, did a coffee tour, had lunch at the village and went for a swim in the hot springs. We got to spend this day with the one and only Chief! Chief is not someone you’ll forget- we had endless laughs and conversations with him. He lifted our energy so much and we had so much fun all day long. He also drove us to the airport on our day of departure and made sure we were all checked in before leaving.

We have spent a lot of time looking at different safari companies, hoping to find one that is trustworthy and honest. We can say without a doubt that Safarisoles is the best decision we could have possibly made. They are a smaller and local company (which we preferred); every single person we have come across has been amazing, and we feel like we have made a bunch of new friends. These are by far the most wonderful people we have met on our entire Tanzania trip. We have already started recommending the company to everyone we know and we will without a doubt book with them again when we come back one day. We miss you all so much, ahsante sana and hope to see you all soon!

Outstanding Tour Operator in Tanzania - Safari Soles
5/5

Recently, me and our friends went on a private 11-days safari organized by Safari Soles including Tarangire NP, Lake Manyara, Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro Crater with Maasi Village Visit & hiking to Materuni waterfall. My tour guide, Izak Marangu, made my first safari trip truly memorable and incredible!

Our guide and driver, Izak, provided 5-stars service to us and his professional knowledge on the animals & eco system and driving skills are bravo. Furthermore, his humorous character always made us full of joy through out our 11-days safari. Izak tried his best to find the big cats for us, such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos and even the black rhinos. Finally, we were so lucky to see the big five and many many other species in the national parks. Izak, you’re great!

On the last day of our game drives, there has been a problem on the wheel. Izak considered the situation of our safety and arranged us to stay in a safe place. Then he replaced a new wheel on the jeep immediately and accurately. We all thanked his professionalism in managing all the things along our safari trip. Safari Soles exceeded our expectations and definitely making our safari in Tanzania amazing! Thank you so much for making us a unforgettable adventure in Tanaznia.

I have no doubt to recommend Safari Soles to anyone looking for a perfect safari operator.

awesome
5/5

My wife and I did a bucket list trip to the 4 day luxury private fly/in and out - Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater safari in early October of 2023. We booked directly with Safari Soles and could not have been happier, and I cannot recommend them enough. I booked this myself, having contacted several safari companies and settled on Safari Soles due to their excellent communication and price. Thanks Happiness for the great communication!! We booked a private luxury safari for just my wife and I and I would highly recommend the splurge - It was so worth it in my opinion. Safari Soles handled our flights from Zanzibar to the Serengeti and from Arusha to Zanzibar and all the lodge bookings. As this was a trip of a lifetime, we were excited but nervous having booked thru the internet. But, Elias our driver (now known as triple E - Eagle Eyed Elias) picked us up from the Serengeti airstrip and off we went. I'd say within a hour we had seen Leopards, Elephants, Crocs, Hippos, Monkeys, Lions and so much more - amazing!! Elias was awesome and made the trip so much more memorable with his driving and guiding skill - we were able to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with him and got to know him much better. He was able to cater to our wants during the safari. We basically were out all day and into some pretty far off areas of the Serengeti in search of all the animals. We really wanted to see Cheetahs after seeing all but the Rhino's in the Serengeti (rarely seen) and Elias delivered - we say 4 cheetahs and even got to see them hunting - an amazing scene watching there speed after gazelles. We did see rhinos in the Ngorongoro crater. It was an amazing experience and one we will never forget.

The lodges were very nice and comfortable with good food - buffet style for breakfast and dinner with packed lunch mostly for eating out in the Serengeti. We had snacks, and sodas and water in the Landrover available to us as well as wine and beer. It was amazing to hear lions roar from your room and night!! The staff at the lodges were very nice and friendly and helpful in walking to/from the main eating area at night - you had to call them as they did not want you walking alone due to possible animals being out. On the Ngorongoro crater lodge, literally right outside our lodge was 10 cape buffalo eating the foliage - so cool.

Again, a trip of a lifetime - super big thanks to Elias and Happiness from Safari Soles. Cannot recommend them enough and would for sure book thru them again.

Trip of a lifetime
5/5

Amazing company with such attention to detail. Booking a safari was very confusing but Francisca was so accommodating and calm. I wasn’t sure what to expect and if all my details would be correct on arrival but from the moment we landed on the airstrip we were taken care of by Inocente. We were taken immediately on a game drive and we saw most animals within 3 hours including Elephants, Giraffe, lions, zebra, Hyena and many more smaller species. We didn’t see them from a distance they were up very close to the car. The drive was informative and thrilling. The lunch was delicious and the picnic spot idillic. We were taken to our lodge which was the Serengeti safari lodge. This was very basic. A little too basic for me but a good experience and spectacular views. The people were friendly and the food was delicious. We were only there one night before we moved to the Melia hotel. This was more expensive but worth every penny. Simply amazing hotel, secluded and spectacular. The game drive you could pick the hours you wanted to do and our guide Inocente was such a good spotter we only needed to drive from 8am until 3pm, it was enough we saw everything except Rhino on our trip. I don’t mean one elephant a day either. On the last day I counted near to 100 elephants. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and this company were perfectly organised and extremely efficient. The jeeps were comfortable and spacious with open tops. I actually cried leaving the Serengeti it really did capture my heart. It is so natural and the guides are very respectful of the animals.
Heaven on Earth!

Great safari experience
5/5

My partner and I went for the 3 days safari + Ngorogoro and we truly enjoyed the experience thanks to Safari Soles. Everything was so smoothly organized, delicious lunches and lodges with top views. Also, while planning our trip I had so many questions which Raphael was always super happy to answer to. Last but not least, our tour guide Oscar- great guy, who we had good laughs with, very knowledgeable of his job and always on point to spot more animals for us to see. We can highly recommend Safari Soles! :))

Once In A Lifetime Experience!
5/5

This was an experience of a lifetime! The animals on our safari were incredible, but what made the trip for us was our guide. Cheddie is extremely knowledgeable, never stumped by our questions. His enthusiasm and sense of humour was delightful. A most excellent host for his country. I absolutely would do this again in a heartbeat…but only with Cheddie at the helm. If you sign up for this safari, specifically ask for Cheddie. There are so many companies to choose from for a safari, but this company was attentive to our every needs and was very good value for the money spent. Do it now! Don’t wait. Trust this company.
