Amazing
5/5

For our first safari we relied on Godlisten and his team. Colours Africa Tours was perfect in everything both in fulfilling our requests before the safari and especially for the whole safari. Benjamin was an excellent and knowledgeable guide who accompanied us for 4 days on the game drive. The moments and emotions we experienced were unique and indescribable. The accommodation was perfect and in line with our expectations. Chef mjomba Sulè :-) unique prepared excellent and really good lunches and dinners for us. The search for our safari was difficult but now I can really be proud and happy that we chose Colours Africa Tours. I recommend everyone to trust them and you will not be disappointed.

Fast responder, adjusts itinerary based on request and well organized
5/5

What an AMAZING safari experience! Well organized, professionally managed and stress free tour with all big 5!

BEST Tour Organizer : We had brief discussion about my tour day before my safari which helped me trust him more. He was very quick responder so I had all my questions answered when I was in the US.

BEST Safari Driver/Guide: Livin Macha is very expert in wild life. He drove extra miles to show us all the animals with a right angel. We saw all big 5!

BEST Service : Food, camps, lodges and crew - everything was perfect! I had best time in camp site sleeping with lions roaring sound. Lodging was clean, with hot water shower and towels. Staff was kind, considerate towards our request. We had extra sleeping bags and mattresses - I used them because it got cold in campsite. Water was supplied.

BIG 5 : saw all big 5, even Rhino! Chita hunting dear, loins hunting dears, failed hunting act by crocodile but chase was very good etc. Colours Africa managed our group very well, we became family and last day was very emotional with our guide. Watching wild animals from so close was the best life experience I could have.

Extra Service: Godlisten was very flexible in adjusting my itinerary. He provided me car pick-up and drop off for my adhoc request.

STRONGLY recommended Safari tour. In Tanzania, you need perfectly organized tour to have best experience.

Extremely helpful and efficient n dealing with unique circumstances
5/5

I was on a recent USAID trip to Tanzania and wanted to include a climb of Kilimanjaro and safari. Godlisten was highly responsive to our unique needs and took the time to understand what our team wanted and the constraints we were under. Colours Africa put together an excellent itinerary for both summitting Kilimanjaro and getting a wonderful visit to Ngorongoro Crater at reasonable cost. Colours Africa set us up with 2 excellent guides, Macoi and Emmanuel, who were very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. They were assisted by Tuesday, who was one of the porters, but is hoping to be certified as a guide, soon. Tuesday was a wonderful leader and ambassador and I'm sure will join the ranks of the guides in the near future. The entire team of guides, cooks and porters was very friendly, efficient, and helpful and made the entire experience in Africa absolutely delightful. We asked for a few last-minute changes and Godlisten was very responsive and came through with accurate and insightful advice on what would meet our needs. We came to fully trust Godlisten's recommendations on what accommodations to pick as he really paid attention to our needs. The Hhando Coffee Lodge was one example of a hidden gem that we didn't expect. There were even elephants snacking on trees in the valley adjacent to the lodge!

From our very first exchanges until the end of the safari, impeccable!
5/5

Communications with Godlisten were simple, clear and easy. He answered all our questions well.
Despite the delay of our flight and our arrival after midnight, the transport from the airport to our hotel was well organized, a person was waiting for us with a poster on which was our name.
The next morning, Godlisten came to meet us at our hotel to explain the operation and planning of the safari. He answered all our questions well. He is a good person who listens to the needs of his customers.

Bulldozer (nickname of our guide) (yenye misukosuko) picked us up from our hotel. He knows the animals and the flora well, he gave us a lot of interesting and complete explanations. He is caring, he was open to our needs and what we wanted to do and see. His driving was excellent as the roads are very rough especially in the Serengeti. He took good care of us during the 6 days we spent with him.
We had a great time with Bulldozer, lots of laughs, great discussions. He also told us about how life is in Tanzania. We felt like we were sharing these moments with a friend. We had a great bond. His presence was a great addition to our experience.
The planning was respected to the letter, the accommodations were those chosen. On our return to Arusha, Godlisten came to meet us at the hotel and we were able to review our experience. He is very professional and friendly.
We loved the following parks: Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngonrogoro Crater. The landscapes are magnificent and very different. Animals are present in large numbers and often very close to the vehicle.
Colors of Africa is trustworthy and I highly recommend doing business with them.

Perfect score for our 2nd safari
5/5

Guide
Our Bulldozer Guide was more than great and it was thanks to his experience and skills that we were able to see some animals that we had not seen on our first safari. He is attentive to his customers, often asks if everything is going well in addition to being pleasant company. He speaks good English (in addition to 5 other local languages) which makes contact easy throughout the safari. At our request, Bulldozer gave us lots of information about the animals we were seeing and that made the safari even more wonderful and informative. It has an impressive amount of information about all the animals we saw including birds.
In addition he is an outstanding driver and this is quite important in the roads going to the Serengeti which are very very bumpy (misukosuko!!) My next safari will certainly be with him, I can only warmly recommend this wonderful man. Asante Sana Bro :)

Tour operator
Planning the safari with Godlisten was very easy and enjoyable. He was a great help in personalizing our experience. What I appreciated the most was his transparency, his patience in answering all my questions and his kindness before, during and even after the safari. One thing that I greatly appreciated is the respect of everything that was agreed in the submission (proposal) both in terms of accommodation and certain details requested. There were no nasty surprises. I highly recommend Colors Africa because they know how to listen to their customers in order to make their experience as perfect as possible.
Thanks to the whole team!

Perfect safari with perfect people
5/5

Jambo!

When I decided to come to Tanzania to do a Safari with a company I searched and compares different companies and finally chose Colours Africa Tours & Safaris...Was a great decision!

Since we arrived everyone's hospitality amazed me, they always looking for you and your welfare.

Benjamin was our guide, he is a top 1 guide! Good person, funny, and with a really good knowledge of the territory. He managed to show us all the big 5, even the leopard and the rhino!!! I don't want to forgot his skills as photographer, with the binoculars and the phone he made me perfect photos of the big 5

Apart from Benjamin we had with us Babatao, the chef, the stomach engineer along the 4 days of the safari. He is another 10/10 person. Preparing for us delicious breakfast at 5 am to start our safari with energy and also being ready to cook us the lunch and the dinner to match the schedule perfectly. I cant say a meal that I didn't enjoy, everything was perfect, he even prepared for us spanish tortilla the last day (a dish from my country).

Well, apart from that 2 great persons I can say that everyone of this company is amazing like for example Oen, our driver from the airport to the safari zone.

I just can say asante sana for making my trip a perfect trip ♥️

PERFECT! 100% recommendable, just perfect.
5/5

Completely amazing!! Just perfect! 100% recommendable to do it wit Colour Africa Tours if your thinking in about doing a safari. Their human team is extraordinary! The person who manage the booking, the transfer guy, the guide and the cooker, all are amazing people and were very very kind with us!

It was our first time in Africa and they helped us a lot, even with things non-related to the safari (flights, visa, money exchange, hotels…). They were there anytime. The organisation and the planning of the trip is perfect to see the most important national parks, and we were lucky to see the big 5!!

The guide Benjamin knows how to move around and get the best spot to see the animals, his knowledge about them is huge. He always respected the environment and was with a permanent big smile in his face. We couldn’t imagine a better guide! The cook of Baba Tao was extraordinary, very good local food and don’t worry, you won’t be hungry with them!

The lodges and campings were surrounded by nature. The night in Serengeti we heard lions during the night, and we saw them close to the camping in the morning, it was breathtaking!!

A perfect company for a perfect first experience in Africa. We will be back someday and undoubtedly we will do it with them for sure!

Excelent Safari Tour
5/5

It has been the only Safari I have done in my life and it was an unforgettable experience.
The treatment we had could not have been better. Both guide and food.
They were 4 days in which I would not change anything. I felt very comfortable at all times and it far exceeded my expectations.
Benjamin and Babatao were our personal guide and chef and I want to thank them for everything they did for us. We learned many things with them and we had a really good time.
