An expert in wildlife, nature and culture with a wonderful personality

The African Polecat Safari changed my life!This experience is the most incredible adventure in every way. Our guide, Manfried is the best you can find. He is a true expert and professional. Manfried’s knowledge of wildlife, nature, and culture is amazing. There was not a question he couldn’t answer! His personality is also so wonderful that it felt like saying goodbye to a dear friend.
In the privacy of our own vehicle, we enjoyed so many animals, all day every day. My favorite sighting included a pride of lions teaching their cubs to feed on a recently hunted water buffalo. Luxury accommodations were wonderful. The Jungle Pearl was like a sanctuary on earth, and I’ll never forget the sunrise and elephant just outside my door at the Heritage Luxury Tented Camp. Thank you to all the Maasai people I met working and living in Tanzania. Thank you to Mow and Manfried and Thank you African Polecat Safaris. (I hope Sean and I see you again someday!)This was an adventure that I will never forget.

Safari was great. We saw a lot of lions, leopards, elephants and other animals. Our driver made sure that we saw all the animal up close. All the time in the safari they were nice and taking good care of us. Also the food was great. I really recomend them. It was once in a life time experience.

Tour was great, easy and our personal guide Manfred was spectacular

We were flew into Arusha from Zanzibar and quickly met up with the tour operator. We got the overview of the safari and then met our guide, Manfred, who was knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. Got to see nearly every animal with the only exception being a rhino. The rooms were amazing and a life changing experience.

very competent

James is very nice and answers all questions about the trip quickly. On-time pickup from the airport. During the Safari, a sufficient supply of drinks (water, cola, beer), a tasty meal. Our two-day safari was very charming. An unforgettable experience . Worth recommending. Price-performance ratio is right. Overnight stay in Jungle Pearl is great! Thank you very much African Polecat.

Best one

I had the privilege of experiencing a fantastic safari with African Polecast. They expertly led me through the Serengeti, Tarangire, and Ngorongoro, creating unforgettable memories.

The African Polecast team’s passion for Tanzania’s wildlife and landscapes shines through. Their guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic, ensuring I saw the incredible animals and breathtaking scenery. Their commitment to responsible tourism is evident and admirable.

Accommodations and meals were exceptional, offering comfort and a taste of local flavors. The entire journey was safe and well-organized.

For an authentic Tanzanian safari, I highly recommend African Polecast. It’s a short review for an extraordinary adventure!

Worth every penny

This experience was unbelievable, my friend and I took the 3 day safari from Arusha and thought it was the perfect amount of time to see all the big 5, and “ugly five” animals. We were so grateful for our tour guide and driver Freddie who guided us through the entire trip ensuring we were fully satisfied and provided good evening tunes to brighten up the sleepy campers! Couldn’t recommend this tour enough - thank you Freddie!!

Big memories of Africa

I really recommend the African polecat as your trust travel. We did the travel from zanzibar to Tarangire and ngorogoro. James organized everything and all was perfect. He is always available for any questions and help by WhatsApp. The pick up at the acommodation till the airport from zanzibar and also from Arusha till the destination was perfect arranged. The taxi driver Hashim was always on time, very friendly and polite. Also the safari driver frederique is the best driver you can have. Always explained about the trip, on the safari about the animales and nature also out of the nacional Park around Arusha. He made sure that there was enough food and drinks ( food was delicious). He made sure that we had the best place in the Park for see the animales and for the best pictures.

Very attentive and fast in responding

The Safari was an amazing experience. Our guide Frederick was very knowledgeable, kind and also fun, he made sure we saw all the animals we wanted. The jungle pearl lodge was one of the best hotels we ever slept in, wonderful luxurious bungalows and amazing personnel. We definitely recommend!
