Safari Soles was professional, well organized and honest.
5/5

We had a fantastic safari set up by Raphael! Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Chief picked us at the airport and toured us around Arusha. We headed out on a 7 day safari with Issac. A Massi guided us on a walk to waterfalls and Natron Lake. He answered many questions about his tribe.

All our accommodations were clean and very comfortable. By the crater, where it was cold, a water bottle was put in our beds while we were at dinner.
FYI, There was usually a tip box at each of the places we stayed which gets distributed to all staff. We didn't know about this until part way through and had been tipping individuals. The food was delicious both at our accommodation and at lunch. We enjoyed wine with our lunch and beer, water, and pop on the dusty road.

We were blown away by the variety of animals. Issac was very skilled at finding animals and moving the truck so that we could see them better. He was very knowledgable about each of them and answered our questions easily. Although there were highlights in each park, we enjoyed the northern Serengeti most. The parks closer to Arusha were busier with tourists and traffic.

After our trip to Zanzibar we contacted Raphael to organize a one day trip to the foothills of Kilimanjaro before we flew out. We had a fabulous day with Andrew walking to waterfalls, learning about and making coffee, then swimming in hot springs.

Safari soles exceeded our expectations! We were very well taken care of.
We would definitely recommend them to others.

Amazing custom safari
5/5

We just finished our first ever 7 day safari with Safari Soles and would highly recommend them. The coordination to develop our itinerary was detailed and timely in responding and making sure we had everything covered and were ready for a great safari.
But the faraway highlight of our trip was our guide Innocent. He made our trip truly unforgettable and is a great asset to Safari Soles. He answered our many questions and made sure we had all great days and spotted countless animals across Tanguirere, Central and Northern Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater. Our trip was a few days longer than the typical 4 to 5 day safari and I would encourage you to add extra days too so you have maximum game drives and opportunities to spot lots of wildlife.
Asante Sana Innocent and Safari Soles for taking such great care of us!

Unforgettable 6 day safari with Safari Soles tours and amazing guide Simon aka “The Safari Monster”!
5/5

Unforgettable 6 day safari with Safari Soles tours and amazing guide Simon aka “The Safari Monster”!
It was a true safari: bumpy rides, the thrill of seeking for the animals (with succes: the big five, the crossing of the +1000 wildbeest over the river and plenty more!), lodges surrounded with all kinds of animals, good local food, fun and also informative stories about the animals and the Reserves, a lot of laughter with our guide and ofcourse Hakuna Matata.
I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way we are beyond happy that we chose Safari Soles tours and that we had Simon as our guide. He made it a trip to never forget with his knowledge of the reserves and good eye site you won’t miss a thing! Tanzania has a special place in our hearts.

An excellent safari!
5/5

My husband and I booked a safari with Safari Soles for our honeymoon and I’m so glad we did. It was an incredible experience! Our guide Raymond was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the animals we encountered and Tanzanian culture. He ensured that we were able to see as many animals as we could! We added on a hot air balloon tour, which was absolutely incredible, worth every penny. The lodging and the food was also excellent. I would highly recommend booking with Safari Soles!

Well organized professional team with amazing guides
5/5

We had an amazing 8-day Safari journey with Safari Sole. We were very lucky with guide driver.”,Simon the lion”. Simon is very professional and knowledgeable about wildlife. We not only saw many wild animals but also learned a lot from Simon. We saw rhinos,cheetahs,elephants, baobab trees,…
The food and lodge arranged by the company are super nice. We will definitely recommend to our friends with hesitation.

Absolutely top class!
5/5

What can I say? We booked with safari soles and they really went above and beyond. We originally contacted a number of safari tour operators narrowing it down to three or four. Safari soles really stood out from the crowd. Brysons communication is excellent. We were able to make several changes and Bryson accommodated everything for us. He was always quick to respond and provided a really detailed itinerary. We were picked up on time and had the best time. Our transfer drivers to and from the airport were lovely and the entire trip was exactly as promised. Bryson booked some wonderful accommodations for us, and the route we took was well thought out giving us sufficient time in each park but also time to relax and soak in the amazing areas where we stayed. The absolute icing on the cake though was our guide Elias. He was so knowledgeable, warm and friendly. He was fun to be around and politely laughed at all our jokes, even the ones that weren't funny. He was a total gentleman and really made our trip so much more wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend safari soles for anyone looking for a top class safari operator

They are a team made in heaven
5/5

Sorry for the essay but …….
So we contacted this agency before arriving in Zanzibar. I found out about them through a YouTube influencer . We told wonderful Happiness that we wanted a 3-4 day safari. That was all we knew . And boy oh boy did they deliver . First we got a quote and a beautiful PDF with a 4 day 3 night trip explaining every day what we would do and where we were going to sleep. And of course we had 10 thousand questions and Happiness answered patiently every single one . The thing I liked about them , well one of the things I liked about this tour agency was that even after we paid they remained exactly as professional and good in answering everything . I cannot stress how wonderful they are . Our first contact was with wonderful Happiness ( she is awesome) then we met Bryson the owner a really cool and sweet guy . Innocent was our safari guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable professional and sweet . He looked after us for 3 whole days and he was just a sweetheart . We did Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara and it was so incredibly amazing . On the last day we did the Materuni waterfall and coffee plantation trip in Kilimanjaro . And there we had Joel to look after us . He was so kind, attentive, sweet knowledgeable and professional. To be honest every single person we met this trip were so nice and professional .
Accommodation wise the Dream Lodge was really interesting and nice the staff was really nice as well . And the glamping near Lake Manyara was magical. You literally opened the door to the tent ( which was very well equipped and clean ) and you saw zebras baboons and wildebeests . It was magical and so interesting .
On the safari we managed to see 4 of the big 5 and we saw lions every day .
I cannot recommend enough this tour operator agency . They all are a team made in heaven .
Thank you so much for making our trip to Tanzania unforgettable!!!!!

An unforgettable experience with Safari Soles
5/5

Right from the start the communication with Bryson was quick and he answered all my questions. At the airport we had Chief pick us up who was super friendly and told us lots of facts about Arusha. Our guide Oscar was great, he worked really hard to make sure we had an awesome experience. He had to change the vehicle's tyre about 4 times and go to a mechanic in a town just outside Serengeti National Park. We also had quite a lot of time in the vehicle and some really long days (one day was 12 hours of driving). Despite being tired and feeling unwell for some of the safari, Oscar soldiered on. Making sure we were enjoying the safari was always his priority and we really appreciated everything Oscar did for us!

Some highlights were the number of leopards we saw on the safari. In total we had 8 sightings which exceeded my expectations! The wildebeest migration in the northern Serengeti was also incredible to see. We also saw cheetahs, servals, lots of lions, and plenty of other safari animals. It was well worth the money spent and I'd definitely recommend choosing Safari Soles.

5 out of 5 star experience
5/5

I had an absolutely incredible experience with Safari Soles. From start to finish, everything was exceptional.

The highlight of our adventure was undoubtably our guide, Estomih. He’s a true gem and made our journey unforgettable. His extensive knowledge of the wildlife, exceptional navigation skills and infectious enthusiasm truly enriched our experience. You must request him!

The entire team at Safari Soles was professional and very helpful throughout the trip. I cannot recommend this tour provider enough - if you are looking for the perfect trip, let Safari Soles turn your Safari into a once in a lifetime adventure!

It was the best we have ever done!!
5/5

It was an incredible adventure and we would go on a safari with Safarisolestour again anytime! We spent two days in Tarangire National Park and stayed one night at "Angata Camp".
Before the trip we planned and discussed everything with Renatus from Safarisolestour. Renatus always answered questions immediately and responded to our requests so that they could be implemented in the best possible way! On site we were picked up by our driver Stanley with a jeep, which we had all to ourselves (and of course the driver). We were lucky to have such a nice driver who stopped wherever we wanted, always looking for animals and explaining everything about the animals and Tarangire National Park to us. Right on the first day we saw ALL the animals that can be found in this national park (giraffes, zebras and wildebeests, water buffalo, elephants, lion family, leopard, antelopes, ostriches, hyenas, birds) - of course you also need a bit of luck for that, but we owe most of it to Stanley. At noon we were at a larger hotspot on a mountain with an incredible view of the national park. Stanley brought us delicious hot food. This was great as I saw some other safari providers bringing "lunch boxes" with cold food (sandwich, apple) for the guests. Our accommodation "Angata Camp" exceeded all expectations. We stayed in a large "King Tent" and thought we were in a 5 star hotel with a direct view of the wilderness. The food there was incredibly delicious - we were served a 4-course menu. Without exception, all employees were super nice and courteous.
On the last day of our safari we even got several hours longer than originally planned, this was arranged by our driver Stanley.
It was the best experience we have ever had and we have the whole team at Safarisolestour to thank for that!!!!
The Safari cost $700 per Person.
