Well organised, great communication and friendly tour operator

This was our first safari and I'm glad we chose Safari Soles. They were very prompt in communicating and happy to make changes to our itinerary. In the end we chose a 5 day mid range safari covering Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngoronogoro Crater and Highlands plus 2 days in Zanzibar at the end. The lodges and tented camp they arranged all had good facilities, including a range of food and wifi. Nothing was too much trouble and we were able to contact Bryson, if needed, throughout the holiday.
Our guide for the actual safari, Jeff, was brilliant and went out of his way to make sure we saw as much wildlife up close as possible. He was very friendly with a good sense of humour and was very patient when we tried to learn some swahili! He also took us to one of the Masai villages, which was very interesting (if not a little expensive - beware the hard sell!!) Picnic lunches were freshly cooked meals with choice of drinks and always in brilliant locations.
We would definitely recommend Safari Soles and our guide Jeff for anyone wanting to do a safari in Tanzania. Plus the hot air balloon trip over the Serengeti (arranged beforehand) was an added bonus!

The best tour I’ve ever had, superb guides and brilliantly run trip, lovely accommodation. Perfect!

It’s no surprise that these guys have the most five star reviews of every operator on safaribookings. Not only do Safari Soles provide great packages at a very good price, but they can also tailor any trip however you want, or do a totally bespoke package. We did a mid-range safari covering Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire and stayed in lodges, and added a fly-in from Arusha straight into the Serengeti so we reduced the drive time to get there. This was well worth it. The Safari Soles guides know the parks inside out and the best places to find animals and also the best places for you to stay. Their guides (and especially Raymond!) are very knowledgeable and fun to be with and they anticipate your every need. Nothing is too much trouble and they are so happy and kind. I have never received such excellent service on any trip before and if anything goes wrong (like our lost luggage) they will bend over backwards to help you solve your problem. Choose this great team of people and you’ll be very pleased with yourself when you realise you’re travelling in comfort with the best operators. We certainly were! A five star experience throughout from enquiry through to the end of our trip. Thank you Safari Soles :-))

Amazing Tanzanian Adventure!

From the start, everything was well organised and planned! The places we stayed were fantastic with great facilities and extremely friendly staff members! The food was delicious and there was a good variety.

The safari experience was amazing, truly a life changing trip! A special mention must go to our tour guide, Ernest. He is kind, knowledgeable and will spot any animal at any time! You’ll be in excellent hands!

Will definitely be returning! Would highly recommend!

We booked a 3-day safari with Safari Soles, fly in to Serengeti and out from Arusha to Zanzibar. Is a good option to anyone who wants to realise the dream of explore the Savana and don’t have much time. 
Is kind of “simple” catch the big five. There are so many companies and guides doing the game drive, helping each other on that, some times, are more humans than animals in a small area. 
Oscar was our guide, a gentle and good professional that answered all our questions, curiosities and try to make the experience unique and memorable. 

The Safari experience was well prepared. All the agents in Tanzania know what to do so choose the company that can provide you what you want for the better price, like Safari Soles did for us.

Amazing 3-day camping safari at Serengeti & Ngorongoro

We just had an amazing trip experiencing the wildlife in Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Doing a camping tour is totally recommended especially when you have Izack and Deniz by your side. They will make the best out of your time with great spots to see animals, all information you need about nature and fresh cooked food.

Forever memories guaranteed

Wow. What an amazing trip. Thank you Safari Soles for helping to make such fabulous forever memories. Our guide, Oscar, was fantastic, so knowledgeable and a great person to spend our time with. Our high speed dash across the plains to see our first leopard will forever make me smile. The safari lodges were great and the food plentiful and tasty. Bryson was very easy to deal with and helped with organising an extra night's stay in Arusha and an extra airport transfer. Unfortunately, we only saw 4 out of the Big 5 with rhinos being the elusive ones. On the plus side, this means we have to come back! See you again next time, Oscar!!

Many thanks for Abdul for the perfect Safari Experience!

We booked the 4 day fly in fly out Safari Trip from Zanzibar and we want to thank you to the best safari guide Abdul the wonderful 4 days spent in Serengeti National Park and in Ngorongoro Crater. He provided us with all useful and interesting informations about the animals, and very nice unforgattable memories. We would recommend him and the Safari Soles Company anytime! We saw all the big five animals very close, Abdul was very flexible with start time, lunch time, etc. Such a wonderful service and time! Also many thanks for Bryson, who replied to the emails and Whatsapp messages very fast, communication and quality is definetely 5*!!!

Excellent 7 day safari

We had a fantastic 7 day safari with Safari Soles. They were great to deal with, Bryson responded to all my emails and messages quickly and the experience lived up to the description and our expectations. Our guide, Jonathan, was excellent, his spotting skills were unbelievable and he got us to see everything we had wanted to, as well as being knowledgeable and informative. Accommodation was excellent, great lunches, always plenty of cold water and drinks on hand. Would definitely recommend.

Incredible experience

We have recently done a safari trip in Tanzania with safari Soles and it has been an absolutely incredible experience! Everything: the stunning landscapes, the animals, the lodges/camps, the food… was truly amazing. We cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Bryson organized our trip very well, considering our preferences and was very flexible. Our guide Ernest was exceptional - he took great care of us throughout the trip and was always happy to explain everything and answer any questions we had about the wildlife or the various locations we visited: the Tarangire National Park (1 day), the Serengeti (3 days), the Ngorongoro crater (1 day), the Lake Manyara (1 day) . He also taught us some words in the local language, Swahili, and many interesting details about Tanzania. The trip would not have been the same without him.

Speaking of the animals, we were lucky enough to see all of the "Big Five" - elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and rhinos - in addition to a wide variety of other creatures, from majestic giraffes to playful baboons. It was truly astonishing to see these creatures up close in their natural habitats, and our guide Ernest even helped us spot some of the more elusive animals that we might have otherwise missed.

Of course, the landscapes themselves were also a huge highlight of the trip: we especially loved the wide open plains of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, with its stunning views and abundance of wildlife, was truly an unforgettable experience. Each location we visited offered its own unique beauty and charm.

Finally, we have to give a special shout-out to the coffee tour we took as part of the trip. Not only did we get to sample some delicious coffee, but we also got an inside look at the process of producing it with the people from Mataruni who were very friendly and kind.

Overall, this was an amazing trip that we will never forget. If you're considering going on a safari in Tanzania, I would highly recommend it - the combination of breathtaking landscapes, incredible animal sightings, and knowledgeable guides is truly unbeatable.

Our Perfect Honeymoon Safari

This was our first time in Tanzania (and first time in Africa), and we had the absolute BEST experience with Safari Soles. From pulling together the perfect itinerary and getting the trip booked with Fransisca, to logistics, and then to the safari, it couldn't have gone any better. They are so good at what they do, and are also so personal and thoughtful. We visited 3 national parks in 4 nights/5 days, and the accommodations and food were wonderful. For our last night, they even booked us a super luxurious lodge/room, and even requested honeymoon accommodations for us which was such a sweet surprise!

The safari itself was absolutely magical, and exceeded my wildest dreams, thanks to our our guide Chadi. I was joking and told him that he was our guide, biologist, walking encyclopedia, African masseuse (aka driver), mechanic, and friend all in one, but it couldn't be more true. He is so passionate about Tanzania, and it's beautiful wildlife, and it shows in his work. We learned so much from him, and he, and the safari truly changed my life forever. Asante sana for everything, Chadi and Safari Soles - we hope to be back in your beautiful country soon!
