An incredible safari adventure
5/5

We had the most incredible private 5 day safari with Sunset Adventure Safari. We visited Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Sunset provided excellent value for money and the trip exceeded all of our expectations.

From the start Emma was great. She patiently answered all of our questions and shaped the trip to our specific requirements including adding a walking safari at Lake Manyara, sunset and sunrise game drives in the Serengeti (absolutely spectacular) and organising a surprise birthday cake for my Dad (which after waking up in the Serengeti and having the most incredible game drive honestly nearly brought him to tears). Before booking I felt overwhelmed with the number of options and providers online. However, we went with Sunset because of Emma’s customer service.

Over the 5 days we visited 4 different National Parks. Seleman was our guide, and he was fantastic! Warm, professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. I love photography and Seleman helped me set up beautiful shots, many of which I have already printed and will cherish. His knowledge of the land and animal behaviour, ensured that we saw the big 5 up close (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as well as so much more! His expertise meant we saw things that we definitely would have otherwise missed. A few of our highlights include watching lion cubs play, a successful leopard kill, breakfast whilst watching hundreds of zebra on the Serengeti plains, elephants silently emerging from the bush and walking right past us, cheetahs preening, the sights, sounds and smells of at least 100 hippos…the list goes on.

Over the 5 days we spent a lot of time driving and the landscapes are beautiful!! It’s really special to experience Tanzanian villages and everyday life in this way. Seleman shared his culture and local customs with us and there was always so much fun and laughter on our drives.

The lodges we stayed in were all great in terms of views, service, comfort and food. We particularly loved Osupuko, nothing beats staying inside the Serenegeti and Ngorongoro Wild Camp. Sitting with a glass of wine, on the veranda at sunset, scanning the bush for animals is an experience I will cherish.

We have so many wonderful memories. All thanks goes to Sunset Adventure Safari, and in particular Seleman, for ensuring we had the trip of a lifetime. Thank you.

Good communication and safari guide
5/5

We went on a 2 day safari to Tarangire and Ngorongoro. The communication was good and it was booked easily. The guide was enthusiastic and gave us a lot of information about the parks and animals.

Friendly, helpful, and responsive to our wishes!
4/5

We had a lovely safari experience with Sunset Adventure Safari. The tour operator, Emma, was very patient with our many questions and was very quick and clear to provide answers. She was always available through e-mail or WhatsApp to communicate with us. The tour guides were also very friendly and open to our suggestions for our safari experience. They did their very best to accommodate to our wishes. Both Emma and the tour guides were also very open and responsive to feedback. Some planning about the safari experience was unclear to us, but through talking with Emma and the guides, we got the planning straightened out. I suggest you ask about this at the start of your safari so the tour guides can fill you in on the details of the experience.

Overall we were provided with great service. The tour guides really worked hard to show us as much wildlife and scenery as possible, providing very interesting facts and information and answering all our questions. Every night they also set up all the tents for us (since we booked a camping safari). The cook also provided us delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, waking up very early to prepare it all! Some feedback I gave about the camping gear, was to provide extra protection for the mattresses - so as to reduce the dust they collected along the drive - and some pillows - as these were not provided. Again, Emma and the tour guides were very responsive to this feedback and assured us that they would look for solutions to provide comfortable camping gear.

I would say we got a great value for our money with Sunset Adventure Safari. The tour itself was amazing, with many unique scenes. The staff were open to our suggestions and proved their reliability towards those suggestions. I recommend booking with this company as everything went very smooth!

The best service & hospitality we have had anywhere in the world
5/5

Omari!
Mzuri sana! You are the tazanite of Tanzania because you’re such a gem(from Erin). We know that it is not an easy job to be a tour guide, driver and friend all at once but you did it all with grace.
- We were very impressed with your driving and we felt safe the whole time.
- We very much appreciated that you were checking in with us all the time about needing bathrooms or being comfortable in the vehicle.
- We really appreciated that you always paid attention to which animals we said we liked and wanted to see. You always went above and beyond trying to find them for us, such as searching for giraffes and arranging our walking Safari in Ngorongoro specifically so we might see them (and we did!)
- We were very impressed when we came off of our flight that you were the very first person holding a sign with our names!
- You were very accommodating and we liked that you always asked us what time we would like to start the next day

All of this shows your professionalism and 16 years experience!

But most of all we felt very welcome in your country. We loved getting to know you and learning about your life. You are extremely knowledgeable about animals and the history of Tanzania. Your jokes always put a smile on our faces and we will keep practicing our Swahili!

We already miss you and cannot wait to be back again. Asante sana, nimefurhrai kikuana nawe!

Sunset Adventure Safaris
Emma thank you for your clear and fast communication. We felt very confident in booking and we appreciated your flexibility in customizing our itinerary!

Also we want to thank you for noticing our arriving flight was into JRO and not ARK. We also know that it was an extra drive for Omari so thank you.

We highly recommend sunset adventure. Our expectations were so far exceeded. Asante sana Emma the team.

Provided Such a Great Service
5/5

We used the three day safari experience to have our first safaris. Doing this with Sunset Adventure Safari was such a success.
We had an experienced guide Omari, who readily shared his knowledge so we felt we learnt so much in just three days.
The animals were incredible and we were lucky enough to observed a wide variety, including lions, elephants, giraffes, a black rhino and a leopard.
Our lodges were run by hard working staff that made you so welcome and comfortable. There was a wide choice of food so there was plenty to eat.
The Ngorongoro Crater was outstanding and such an amazing environment with so many different animals.
Emma and her team solved our travel problems easily to ensure we had a great time.
I would recommend this to families and couples. I would suggest you try to be reasonably fit if you are older like us, we are both over 70.
Our thanks go to Sunset Adventure Safari for such wonderful memories.

Fantastic, unforgettable experience
5/5

We truly had a fantastic trip with Sunset Adventure Safari. It was the first time my mum had done a safari and it is something she will remember for life. Our guide Omari was excellent, a good driver, very knowledgeable and all-round nice person and company. He went out of his way to accompany us and make us comfortable. He met our every need, always available but not intruding. He was very considerate about the things we wanted to see and we never felt rushed. All hotels were good, especially green mountain and Maranda valley lodge. Lunches were excellent and very filling. Dinners were also good. The walking tour was an unique experience , especially coming face to face with a male lone elephant :) We felt the trip was also very good value. The pre-departure communication and information was very detail and timely and the owner, Emma, was a lovely person to deal with. Thanks for making it such a unforgettable experience.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! Would highly recommend:)
5/5

Hi! We took the 5 day Safari through the Serengeti through Sunset Adventure Safaris and it exceeded every expectation we had. We did a private safari for two people. First of all, our guide Sele was always early which made going out and doing the drives earlier to try to see as many animals as possible. He was super informative and you can tell he really enjoys what he does and being out in the bush. He also appreciated our senses of humour and we would have a laugh! It’s important to have a good relationship with your guides as you will be spending many hours with them in the car. Also fun fact, Sele was also really good at taking pictures and getting the right angles which was something that I struggled to do in the car. When he heard on the radio that cheetahs were close, he told us we were going to meet some other cars but kept the cheetahs a surprise which made it MUCH better since we weren’t expecting it. I mean, absolutely did not ruin the surprise and let us see them ourselves first. Personally, love this because we would get so pumped trying to keep our eyes peeled. Another thing, he was really good and manoeuvring the safari vehicle so we could get best view or where he thought the animal would be. When he heard there was a rhino, he actually randomly stopped and took out his binoculars because he figured the rhino was moving in our direction. He didn’t go to where the other vehicles were and we were able to see the rhino before the other vehicle met up with us. He’s a real champ!!

Our Safari vehicle was super sweet. One thing I noticed in comparison to all other companies was the number of seats on the vehicles. Our vehicle had 2 seats in the back with the rest of the space open for walking around/having room for photos without stepping on seats. Other vehicles had 4 to 6 seats but if it was only 2 people in the Safari, they had to stand on seats to manoeuvre around. All we had to do with stand up. This made it way easy for both of us to stand on the same side of the car to take pictures (because you want good pictures). Sele was also happy to take photos from the front seat of us with the animals. I would definitely say, only 2 seats in the back for 2 people gave us leg room and made the long drives more comfortable.

In addition, Emma helped us book the safari and she always responded quickly and was super courteous. She was able to answer all our questions and even helped us loads when our plans changed and dates changed.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Sunset Adventure Safari!!

It was an amazing experience and our tour guide took care of us very well. We got to see almost all the animals up close and was an overall incredible experience. Worth every dollar and would definitely go again!
