Professional Service with good communication and smooth booking

We looked at a number of potential Tour operators but found the response and answers to our questions very prompt from Justine Shammah Wonders.

We booked a safari for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We booked the 3 day Safari from Zanzibar, with transfers which were very smooth apart from a slight hiccup with the return taxi to the hotel being slightly delayed which was understandable.

We stayed in a comfortable Camp and lodge that was well organised and on the outskirts of the National Park where we even managed to see a few animals ( Water Buffalo, Elephant, Monkeys and the lovely bush babies ). The Maasai warrior guards at the camp were absolutely wonderful and even gave a warrior dance and song performance for us. There was limited pictures and information about the Camp when we booked but it was well organised and comfortable with quaint traditional lodges. Our driver for the Safari ( Eric ) was so knowledgeable and experienced, but also great company. He knew where to find all the animals and could spot them a mile away, we learned a lot about the animals, and ecosystems from him. I have to also mention our bush guide for our bush walk, Dr Simba who was very entertaining but also knowledgeable about the plant life and ecosystems. We can definitely recommend this tour operator and tour - from booking to experience itself. We were super excited to have this Safari experience which was just amazing. Thank You Shammah Wonders, Justine and Eric

Great team and response time

Justin did a great job replying to our questions and helping to arrange our safari. Elihaki was the safari driver from heaven and was incredibly knowledgeable when it came to finding the animals and helping us to learn more about them. We would return tomorrow if it meant we had Elihaki for another drive.

Very good experience and great in communication

Heading: One of the most dreamed experience ever in my life.

It was our first time to to Tanzania with my family! We were four of us, I, my husband and our two kids. After getting in touch with this company through safari booking, I started chatting with Justine ( The owner of the company). He was very informative and so quick to respond to all our questions, then after we all managed to agreeing on everything about safari. In our safari to Selous ( Nyerere National Park) we had the loveliest and most exciting days in with our guide Elihaki! Everything went smoothly, from the initial point up to our drop off in Zanzibar. The whole safari was super well planned, the lodges we booked were good and there was always enough food and drinks. Elihaki was also flexible regarding our wishes and needs. Also important to mention, we felt safe and well guided the entire time. During the game drives, Elihaki was able to explain a lot about the nature and animals. We managed to see a lot of animals.

All in all, I would at any time recommend Shammah Wonders Safari to my family and friends, and especially our friend Elihaki as our trusted guide of all times

Excellent 3 day safari tour

We booked a 3 day Safari to Selous from Zanzibar.
The transfers and flights were good and fast. Communication with Justine at Shammah tours was quick and easy.
Our guide Elli who took us for the game drive and the bush walk was excellent. He really made an effort to show us all the animals. His in all cases detailed knowledge about the nature, animals and the culture really made a difference for the trip. We would highly recommend him as a guide!

Excellent Safari!

We went on the 3-day Comfort Safari to Selous from Zanzibar as part of our honeymoon and can highly recommend Shammah Wonders Safari! The communication before the safari was excellent. We were picked up from our hotel in Stone Town and taken to the airport for our flight straight to the gate of the national park. From here we were met by our guide Elihaki and started our drive straight away. He was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, and patient when we wanted to watch animals for a long time. Selous itself was a lovely place and we were very lucky to have some amazing sightings including a leopard and wild dogs.

Excellent 3 day Safari trip to Nyerere National Park

We were looking for a safari in Nyerere Park from October 21st to 23rd, and only this company was the only one that reacted quickly and offered a suitable tour. We agreed on a free transfer to and from the airport. After this we had paid for the first part online, and for the second part we paid in cash in dollars to the driver.

We were quietly taken to the airport, where we left our luggage (which we did not take on Safari) with the agent and at 6 a.m. we flew to the mainland.

Upon arrival, we were met and taken to the camp. There we were accommodated in a separate house, the room was spacious. We were well fed, there were breakfasts, lunches and dinners included in the tour. At our free time from excursions, we swam in the pool and sunbathed. But we didn't have an electricity all the time, it was served according to schedule, which means that there was no Internet at that time.

On the first day we had an excursion to the village, where we saw the lifestyle of the locals, and visited a walnut factory. It was interesting and unusual.

In the evening we had a boat Safari, where we sailed along the Rufiji River and we were told about the local nature. We saw a lot of hippos, several crocodiles and many surprising birds. We met the sunset on the one of the islands, it was very romantic!

On the second day, we woke up very early, had a breakfast and went on Safari for the whole day. This time we were lucky and my wife and I were alone in a jeep. We rode around the park all day, so we were a little tired in the evening. Also at 1p.m we had a lunch at the camp, where we ate near a huge baobab. (By the way, there were also several big baobabs on the territory of our camp).

We saw several elephants, a lot of giraffes, zebras and antelopes, several buffaloes. A lot of warts and monkeys. There were a huge number of hippos and crocodiles in the river, they were so many of them and we drove right to shore. Unfortunately, we didn't see the lions that day, they were hiding somewhere far away. And in October there is a dry season, many animals migrated to the other side of the river to less arid places.

I liked everything very much, we came back tired, but happy.

On the third day we had a very interesting walking tour with a bushman in the surrounding area. There he also let me try to smoke an elephant poop, it was unusual, but I didn't feel anything nasty.

After this tour, we had a time to rest and sunbathe and at 3 p.m. we were taken from the camp back to the runway, where we were waiting for our plane. After that, we came back to Zanzibar, where we stopped by to get our luggage and went to the hotel. Everything went pretty clear and well, I can't say anything bad.

In general, I recommend this company!

Great experience - 1 day Selous from Zanzinar

We took a full-day safari from Zanzibar. It was amazing! The perfect way to spend a day and have a bit of adventure during a relaxing holiday in Zanzibar. The communication with Justine was perfect. We exchanged a lot of emails and even via WhatsApp. He helped us with all preparations. The driver was at our hotel and took us to the airport From there we took 30 min and the Game drive started immediately.

I really recommend this experience. We saw all the animals possible except Leopards and Rinos! The lunch was very tasty and its location was amazing! At the end of the day, we got back to Zanzibar directly to our hotel!

This is a lifetime experience which I recommend to everyone that travels to Zanzibar!

Great Safari with a great guide.

We booked a 5 days safari with Shammah Wonders safari. (Mikumi np, Udzungwa Mountains and Nyerere np and boat safari). The communication with Justine before the safari was verry well. Our guide was Selum and we had a great time during the safari. We saw a lot of different animals like Elephants, Lions, Buffalo's, Hippo's, Crocodiles, different types of Antilopes and more. The guide Selum was verry helpful and knows a lot of the animals and wildlife, when te tourists are happy he is also happy. The accommodation we stayed was camp Bastian Mikumi and Africa safari Selous. The food in both camps was verry tasteful. In camp Africa safari Selous we heard a lot of noise in the middle of the night and something was walking around our bungalow. When we went out of our bed and checked wat it was we saw 2 Elephants!!

I would everyone recommend this safari.
Selum thanks for the great safari
