The perfect way see all Tanzania’s trademark animal on a budget!
We really enjoyed our 5-day camping/budget lodge safari covering 4 of the main National Parks: Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. We saw all the animals we’d been hoping to, as well as some additional surprises. All the parks are special in their own way. The guides were good and the chef was fantastic and made a special effort for us since we are both vegetarian. All the booking/pre-tour communication with Brian was first class - he got back to me pretty much straight away every time. Very impressed with the value for money - the hotel accommodation was basic but comfortable and the tents were fine - they provide mattresses and sleeping bags but bring your own pillow. Beware it gets very cold at the Simba campsite at the top of Ngorongoro Crater, so bring warm layers for overnight. Unless you book a private safari you’ll be mixed with people from other groups, which was quite fun, but even if you do book a private one you’ll probably find the eating areas and campsite generally to be pretty busy.
General comments about the safari: for a first-timer it was surprisingly easy to spot animals and we had so many animal encounters that we could sometimes focus on taking photos and other times just watch and absorb. Sometimes, especially in Serengeti/Ngorongoro, you’re viewing an animal with a number of other jeeps, but Lake Manyara, although with fewer sightings provided some welcome solitude. The 5-day tour was well-paced and not a rush at all.
Would not hesitate to recommend Yetu Safaris for a 5-day budget trip.

Great experience on a group 5day/4night campus ng safari to Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater and Tarangiere NP. The director was very responsive in the booking process and was flexible with multiple cancellations due to Covid on our side.
Douglas the tour guide made the trip special and was extremely experienced and passionate about his job. He was very safe and skillful driver in sometimes difficult conditions. Food was also very good and prepared well by our chef, considering that we were camping and using portable equipment.
Overall if you are looking for a Camping option for your safari then choose Yetu tours and safaris!

Great Safari Experience with very good service
Me and three other students booked the 5-Day Safari Tour from Yetu Safari while we were staying in tanzania.
First of all: it was really a great experience!!!
We got pick up by a taxi at Machame and they drove us to the starting point for the safari (a Hotel in Arusha). The taxi and a night in the Hotel (+dinner and Breakfast) was all included at the original tour price!!!
The next day the safari started. During the 5 days we were at four national parks (serengeti, ngorongoro, lake manyara, tarangire) and we saw every animal there is! Maybe we where a bit lucky, but our driver/guide also knew the best spots to see all the animals (he is doing safaris for over 14years now). Beside the driver we had our own chef with us, who cooked for us every day fresh, very good and always enough!
After the Tour we stayed one more night in the hotel in arusha and the next day we drove by taxi to the airport (again everything included).
On the last evening Brian and Carsen (the two guys from Yetu safari) came to the hotel to get feedback from us and we had a very nice evening talk (not just about the safari).
So i really enjoyed the Tour and i would recommed the 5-Days tour from yetu safari to everyone!!!
It was a great experience and the people (the guide, cook, Brian, Carsen) are all very very kind and what to give you the best service and experience!
If there was anything to complain about, you just could tell them or text brian and they arranged it.
Thanks a lot for the great days!
greetings from Austria ;)
ps: communication was also very simple via whatsapp, so you didn‘t have to wait long for an answer

It was an agency recommended by another tourist we shared a trip with while in Egypt.
He said amazing stuff and since Tanzania was my next destination, I booked them.
I really liked the professionalism and how they took care of our group for the whole safari. The guides, the cook and accommodation plans were all intact and nice, they even offered me a free day tour on my arrival day that I had no plans on. It was a great time in Arusha.

The 2 days I went in Serengeti.
I was a bit hesitant about adding Serengeti to my already 2 days safari in Tanzania thinking I have seen it all. I'm glad my trip itinerary planner convinced me I would enjoy it there.
The park is marvelous, I ticked all the big 5 off my must see list :). As well, I got a glimpse of the Ngorongoro Crater as we were enrouted to Serengeti.
On a special note, I'd recommend the cook anytime any day, he got my vegetarian diet on point, I still reminisce the taste of his greens.
I wish I return to Tanzania soon for Zanzibar and definitely I'm booking Yetu Safaris.

Spectacular 6 days - tour in Tanzania
Our guide (Lucas) was just WOW! His 10 years' experience really shows how he cares for and loves animals and he always went an extra mile to get us the best views, including liaising with other guides. We saw all the big 5 and got the chance to take perfect pictures as we got really up close especially with the lions. Apart from being the best guide, Lucas is an excellent driver and always charming.
Honestly, our tour was well planned, we had the best hotels and the tour guide was really flexible to adjust where we made exceptional requests and everything was just incredible. I highly recommend Yetu Tours and Safaris for anyone wishing to explore Tanzania.

I traveled 4 days with Jenifer my friend. We had good time with Yetu Safar crew! a guide Benjamin and super chef John were very supportive and attentive during the whole time I was there. All hotels were very clean and comfortable. They have very spacious rooms. Also food was great.
The itinerary was full with exciting safaris but I also got the plenty of time to rest at night during the whole time I was there. All hotels were very clean and comfortable. They have very spacious rooms. Also food was great
