Exceed my expectations!

I had looked at so many different tour companies and what sold me on Samora was all the reviews about Iddy and that I'm supporting a locally operated small business.

Iddy was highly knowledgeable and charismatic as a guide with a very inspirational outlook on life. I always enjoyed all our conversations. He also was thoughtful in checking in with our needs and adapting the schedule/plan on the fly to fit our pace.

He pays attention to the small touches such as refrigerated drinks, a well maintained car and warm picnic lunches which makes the experience feel elevated than the typical "packed lunch". The accommodation he selected for us was also perfect - clean, luxurious feeling, good hosts and good food! I felt that we got a more premium experience than I anticipated!

I highly recommend Samora for a tailored, premium and special safari experience.

Iddy (german/english speaking) and his team made this safari the highlight of my tansanian holiday

I was in the Arusha region end of Jan./beginning of feb. and booked a Safari with this company at short notice.
A 3-day tour in the Serengeti an Ngorongoro national parks and was more than happy.
We saw lions, rhinos, buffalos, leopards, elephants, giraffes, zebras and much more... Highly recommended

Ngorongoro Crater was the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!

Iddy, Jr., and Johnny were the best and most knowledgeable guides we could have ever hoped to have. The entire week just kept getting better and better. We were so close to elephants, lions, zebras, and so many more animals. I wish everyone could experience that level of happiness that we had at least once in their lifetimes. Thank you, SAMORA EXPLORERS!!!

Epic safari experience

Had the most epic experience with Samora explorers! Got to see the big 5 and had very close encounters! Iddy, Benja and Junior were the best guides; funny, knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Highly recommend to book a safari tour with them.

This Tanzania safari was by far one of my best travel experiences to date! Iddy from Samora Explorers made my trip one to remember and he went above and beyond to make sure I was having a good time all the time! I got to see the Big 5, the food was healthy and delicious, the national parks were all amazing, and the accommodation was great! Highly recommend booking a Tanzania Safari with Samora Explorers! Can't wait to visit again!

Our guides Gadiel and Felix are very kind and helpful, always there to support me, they took very good care of me so that i could make it to the summit. The team is great, kind, joyful and trustworthy.
I spend a very pleasant time with them.

Super high recommendation!!

I did a four-day hike to the top of Mount Meru with Samora Explorers. This hike was the highlight of my trip to Tanzania and exceeded all my expectations. The team was fabulous: My guide Gadiel, the chef Mapunduki, and the three porters Benjamin, Rosa, and Abraham were the best crew one could ever get to do such a hike. Once again, thank you so much if you guys read this. Asante sana!

Here are some examples of how they will care for you if you go with Samora Explorers: Gadi watched my steps and made me feel safe to hike at such a high altitude. At each moment, he was aware of all external factors (weather, track, flora, fauna, etc.) and how I dealt with them. And it was so much fun with him, too!
I am a coeliac; thus, I cannot eat gluten. Can you imagine getting the BEST gluten-free food 3500 meters above Sealevel? Mapunduki made this possible. Each day, he prepared tasty food; I didn't eat the same dish twice. The moment of the summit was incredible, but the moments when we got to eat Mapunduki's food were almost as good :D
I could go on, for example, telling how Benja brought me fresh hot ginger tea when my throat was itching or how Rosa and Abraham impressed me, carrying all our belongings up the mountain.

But the best thing is if you experience it yourself. Just contact Iddy to talk about what you would love to do. He helps you with everything. I want to go back :)

A Remarkable Tanzanian Safari with Samora Explorers and Iddy

Our recent Tanzanian safari with Samora Explorers exceeded all expectations, thanks to our fantastic tour guide and safari driver, Iddy.

What truly set Iddy apart was his attention to customer experience, passion for his work and his deep knowledge of wildlife and Tanzanian culture.

As a skilled safari driver, Iddy navigated the challenging terrains of the parks with ease, ensuring a comfortable and exciting ride throughout. His patience and expertise in positioning us to witness wildlife in their natural habitat were exceptional. We saw all the big five within the first two days of our five-day Safari.

He thoughtfully curated an unforgettable experience for us, starting with his excellent choice of accommodations that perfectly complemented the adventure.

The thoughtful additions of stocked drinks in the safari van's mini fridge and the picnic lunch hampers Iddy provided truly elevated our experience.

Iddy takes great pride in crafting a personalised and unforgettable journey. If you're seeking a top-tier Tanzanian safari, we
