Awesome Safari experience!

We did the four day Safari with Shadows: Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
Since initially contacting them we got the response from Inge who was super helpful during all the process of deciding what to do and where to stay. She also helped with all practical questions such as weather, clothing, tips, etc.

Our tour guide was Moody and he was absolutely amazing. He always tried hard to get us everywhere so that we could spot all the animals with the best views.
He has lots of experience and was able to respond all of our questions with knowledge.

The food was very good and we had picnic lunches including soup, a few options for main dish and some fruit or desert. Everything served with proper plates and cutlery which is nice.

We would 100% recommend Shadows and Moody as a Safari guide.

best exprience ever

Fantastic communication, fast responses, top of the top in organization — everything what we wanted to see and do, was organized for us. We had the best guides ever, and we felt super welcome during the whole tip. We will recommend that place and use this company for our next African trip. :)

Experience of a lifetime! - contemplating on booking? JUST BOOK IT!

Our safari experience was more than I ever could have imagined! We booked an 8 day trip including 5 day safari through Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorogoro Crater and 3 nights in Zanzibar to end the trip. The safari was by far the best part of the trip - I highly recommend visiting all the parks we visited! We saw all of the Big 5 animals and even got the chance to see 2 leopards up close which is hard to find! All of this is due to our amazing driver, Sule. He made this trip all that it was! Sule was incredibly knowledgeable, fun and personal, and is a very experienced driver. I never once felt unsafe and he made the experience so much fun. I definitely recommend asking for Sule - we got so lucky having him as our driver! Overall, shadows of Africa did an amazing job. They are great at communicating prior, during and after your trip, booked the best places for us to stay, and truly made this experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend booking with Shadows of Africa!

50th B'day trip of a lifetime

We chose Shadows of Africa as Inge was so helpful and was able to answer all of our questions and tailor a trip for our needs and budget. After arriving in JRO airport a driver took us to our first night's accommodation at the Moivaro Lodge in Arusha. The next day we met the lovely Dullah and Philemon our guide and driver and set off on our travels. We did Tarangire NP and headed off towards Serengeti NP staying at Bougainvillea Safari Lodge in Karatu and then onto Sametu camp for two nights. We then did the Ngorogoro crater and stayed at Marera Valley Lodge in Karatu. We ticked off the Big 5, saw a kill and had a close encounter with three cheetah juveiles who used our jeep as a lookout post. Our Serengeti balloon trip was an amazing experience with breakfast under an acacia tree. Our guides were very knowledgeable and the nicest guys too.

Flawless: everything organized to perfection

Communication was excellent, the service top notch, we got more than expected, the tour was as programmed and a bit of good luck helped a lot on spotting many animals during our safari. the guide, Loma, truly made the difference. Very nice and professional guide and person.

Great trip to Tanzania

Was a pleasure to deal with Shadows of Africa, in particular Inge who was sensitive to all our extra dietary needs and special requests we had on the way. She went out of her way to find solutions and really thought out of the box for us. We had a wonderful trek on Mt Meru with a great guide; Amir, and ranger; Ali. Both were super professional and also a lot of fun to be with.
The safari was great. Our guide Dullah was amazing, he taught us how to observe the animals and gave is intense background for each creature.
Shadows delivered on all it's promises.

Perfectly organised climbs of Mt Kilimandjaro and Mt Meru - great food, great care

Two friends, we booked simultaneous climbs of Mt Kilimandjaro and Mt Meru. Our guides were Augustin on Kili and Amiri on Meru. Both were professional and pleasant company and made sure all the details were taken care of so we both made it to the top. Food was FANTASTIC. After the climb we stayed at just opened Olerai Lodge where Kash and her team members provided great hospitality. Thanks also to the drivers Youssouf and Augustin taking us from one place to another. Hopefully we will see you again one day.

Amazing life experience

I will be always grateful to Inge and Shadows of Africa for what I can describe as the best experience of my life.
We did a 6-day safari including Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater.
Everything was perfect. Our guide Alex was very good. He always had an answer to my (many many) questions (related to animals or general life in Tanzania) and he always suggested that we would do things in our (we traveled as a couple) best interest.
The accommodations were great, the lunch scheme was very good (while everybody else was eating sandwiches every day for lunch we had always a complete meal) the vehicle was reliable and most importantly, we could see a lot of animals.

I would without a single doubt in my mind hire the services of Shadows of Africa again in the future
