We had an amazing trip with Safari Soles and our guide Isaac

We had an amazing safari in Tarangury, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Hotels booked by Safari Soles were just fantastic. Especially the view at our hotel on the crater was amazing. Also a big thanks to our guide Isaac wo made our trip wis his knowledge and expertise on the animals and best game drive spots in the park. Also the communication with Safari Soles went very smooth.

Great Safari with experienced Driver/Guide

We had a great time with Safari Sole Tour. Easy booking process and friendly staff.
Our Driver/Guide Simon had a great knowledge of all animals, Maasai and Tanzania in general, we even learned some Swahili with him. Everything we asked him he had an answer and during our tour he explained a lot. Simon was also an experienced driver and he knew where to go to see really close the lioness, the cheetah, the leopard and many more.
Chef Dennis spoiled us with lots of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It was an awesome and memorable trip thanks to the staff to Safari Sole. Make sure Simon will be your guide :-)

Best safari is with Safari Solace!

Everything was great! From airport pickup to airport departure our group (6 people) were taken care of. We had a great driver and even better Chef, food was delicious and there was a lot of it! We saw many many animals and even extra requests and small change of plans were fulfilled by our guide. Once again big thank you for everything.
I highly recommend to use Safari Solace!

Highly recommended for an amazing experience!

What an amazing experience! We are so so happy to have chosen Safari Soles for our 4 days/3 night experience in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, in a shared group,
I had a few friends who went for another safari agency for northern Tanzania in the past, but I decided to do a search on my own and out of contacting 6 different companies, my boyfriend and I choose Bryson because he seemed very professional, reliable and with a good price.
We were greeted by Bryson the day before the safari at our guesthouse and he made sure about any allergy we could have and also had a chat with us reassuring and replying to any question we had. We also met him after we came back, and he s always been pleasant to talk to.
Our guide and driver was Chadi: what a fantastic guy! Very chatty and knowledgeable of all the animals, he was always happy to reply to any of our questions, always smiling and helpful with any request. Our chef was Denis, who prepared delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner every day - so much food for us we could never finish it. After almost a month from our safari, my boyfriend still dreams of his food! We highly recommend both of them.
The safari itself has been a lifetime experience, no word can describe the beauty of what we saw and our feelings looking at all the wild animals we saw, the list is countless. We are also very happy to have chosen the safari with basic accommodation (1 night lodge, 2 nights tents) as the tents in the campsite provide a unique insight of the natural reserve and they are more than comfortable to have a decent night sleep.
Our biggest regret is that it was too short! Definitely we recommend at least a couple of nights more to have more time to explore.
In conclusion, we recommend Safari Sole to everybody and we hope one day to go back to Tanzania with them.

Extremely knowledgeable, kind and accommodating!

I went on this safari end of August 2022 with 5 friends. Bryson, as well as our guides, Freddy and Action, were very clear with communication, highly reliable, knowledgeable, and fun! Given we paid roughly $900 USD, I was expecting bare bones. However, this safari far exceeded my expcectations. Our guides would accommodate regular bathroom breaks, packed plenty of food / water / wine, were efficient with camp set up / tear down, and knew exactly where to go to see the best animals. I saw everything that I wanted to, and Freddy also had a deep knowledge of the geography, animal facts, Tanzanian people / culture, etc so it was more educational that I anticipated. Be prepared to get dusty and have a true camping experience (bring toilet paper / wet wipes / snacks / etc). Also be prepared to sit in a jeep for 7-9 hours a day. Overall, absolutely amazing experience and would 10/10 recommend.

A trustable, serious and well organized operator. I recommend them.

I chosen Safari Soles after asking 5 offers from I liked their offer and the way they presented to me. I negotiated, booked and payed very easy from Romania a safari for 6 persons (4 adults and 2 children), because Bryson, the owner, is serious, very well organized and answers promptly on email and WhatsApp. We met him in person in Arusha and he made us a very good impression.
There, in safari, everything was perfect and well organized. All of us had a great experience in the parks (Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara) with our guide Freddy, a very nice young man, passionate about animals. He is a good guide and gave us a lot of information. I have to mention the Chef, sorry that I don't remember his name, but he cooked very good for us.
Thank you guys! We will be back for Serengeti :-)

Safari soles tours are excellent

Our safari was absolutely incredible, we saw everything we came to see and more! Simon was our guide and he was brilliant throughout, always making sure we were all happy. He knew so much about the animals and you could tell he cared a lot about them. I would 100% recommended this company and the 6 day budget safari we did.

Amazing safari

My girlfriend and I did the 5 day safari in Tarangire, Serengeti & Ngorongoro and absolutely loved it. Our guide Simon was super friendly and so knowledgable. He knew everything about all the animals we saw (and there were so many) including the birds. Our cook Dennis was also very friendly and kept us well fed throughout the trip. We also did the hot air balloon ride at sunrise which was stunning. Hope we can come back soon!

The best Kilimanjaro/safari company operating in Tanzania

My husband and I spent two weeks in mainland Tanzania with Safari Soles (first, climbing Kilimanjaro and then on safari in the Serengeti) and we confidently concluded that we had found the best company operating in Tanzania.

The company is run by Bryson, who is a young local Tanzanian. All of Bryson's employees spoke incredibly highly of him and his professionalism, describing him as a man who never cuts corners. This was exactly accurate with our impression of him. In the lead up to the trip and during, he was always available, friendly, impressively efficient and easy to communicate with, and patiently answered every one of my questions. He organised exactly the trip we wanted - the activities, perfect dates, to our budget, etc.

First, we spent 8 days taking the Lemosho route up Kilimanjaro with Gasto (guide), Justin (assistant guide) and their team of porters. The group knew each other very well, since many of them have worked together for ten years, and their cohesion was evident. They felt like a family and we were made to feel very much a part of that family. Every person we passed on the mountain seemed to know and would greet Gasto, evidencing how respected he is as a guide and also how experienced he is. When he became a guide ten years ago, he was the youngest guide on the mountain. He knows every leaf, every symptom of altitude sickness, every corner of Kilimanjaro. Within a day, he had sussed out our strengths and weaknesses and would tailor our daily schedules to reflect this. The porters always got us the best spots in the campsites, everyone on the team was flawlessly professional and punctual, the food was excellent, the kit we borrowed top quality and the friendliness of the team was wonderful. Making it to the summit was amazing but we will cherish the memory of every member of our team who we spent those 8 days with as much as getting to the top of Africa!

Next, we spent four days on a camping safari in central and northern Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater, with Isaack (guide) and Dennis (chef). They were a fantastic pair who also seemed to know every other guide or ranger we passed! Dennis was a magician, cooking up the most delicious meals in such basic conditions. My jaw dropped when he brought us fantastic freshly baked bread for dinner! Dennis could absolutely be working for a top restaurant in Arusha. Isaack was super friendly and endlessly knowledgeable about the parks and animals, and managed to not only show us a heap of different animals but some amazing scenes - like a lion and hyena showdown over a killed buffalo! The Safari Soles guides have a great relationship with each other so, since there were two different SS jeeps in the Serengeti at the same time, Isaack and the other guide often worked together, giving each other tips on what they'd found that day etc. So you benefit from the eyes of not just your guide but their other fantastic guides too!

It was really important for us to book with a Tanzanian company, not an international one. This was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us that we'd saved for and we wanted the money we spent to go entirely to Tanzania and the local people. Bryson has gathered a team of the very best guides, porters, chefs in Tanzania. You can't go wrong by booking with him and I am confident that, like us, you'll be grateful every day of your trip for finding Safari Soles!
