Fantastic family safari experience in Tanzania together with Evarest!
5/5

We landed at Kilimanjaro Airport on 31/12 and were welcomed by our guide, Everest, who accompanied us during our 6-day journey through the national parks in North Tanzania. Everest is very friendly, professional, and well-prepared. He immediately made us feel at ease and explained everything we wanted to know about wildlife, nature, and Tanzania's culture and habits. He knows the parks and wildlife like the back of his hand and helped us spot plenty of animals, including the Big Five and the massive migration of zebras and wildebeests in the south of Serengeti. Furthermore, he speaks perfect English and Italian and is an excellent driver (which is a big plus, considering that roads might quickly become challenging and muddy, especially after some rain).

We visited Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti before flying to Zanzibar for a few days of relaxation by the seaside. Overall, the organization done by Savannah was excellent. The lodges were very nice, the food was excellent, and the itineraries were well thought out.

We strongly recommend Savannah Explorer for a trip to Tanzania and Everest for his outstanding services and explanations that made our trip an unforgettable family experience!

Unforgettable experience with a fantastic guide, Babuu!
5/5

We booked the Simba safari (1 day in Tarangire park, 2 days in Serengeti and 1 day in Ngorongoro) and everything was above our expetations!
Our guide Babuu was awesome.
He took care of us every minute from out arrival at the Arusha airport to the drop off at the Kilimanjaro airport in a gentle, kind, polite and always available way, his knowledge about the animals and the whole wildlife is amazing.
We saw more than 30 wild animals including the Big Five, also having one day of torrential rains and being stuck in the mud but very well managed and will be always part of this unblelievable trip!
The accomodations were amazing and the experience of spleeping in a tented camp in the very heart of the parks among all animals is very unique!
ASANTE SANA BABUU and SAVANNAH EXPLORERS!

Safe and competent tour operator. Solo trekking of Mount Meru... fantastic!
5/5

I set off alone on this trek, Mount Meru in four days. Clement the guide who accompanied me was great, very knowledgeable and prepared. He was always at my side or behind me ready to help and support me in moments of difficulty. The team, of cooks and porters, very kind and really good!

Communication with Clement was always excellent, every day I had the information to understand a bit about the itinerary and the organisation. With the tour operator the contacts were great, as was the management of the booking and punctuality. Yes, I would do it again right away... ! I highly recommend it!

An Experience We Would Rebook
5/5

Our family and friends had an amazing 5-day safari with our guide, Everest! You can tell he takes his job seriously, and that’s a plus. He cares about nature and all that it has to offer. We enjoyed talking to him and simply getting to know him as a person. I loved hearing his stories about Tanzania and its people. His knowledge of the land and animals was intriguing. Between all of our game drives, we were able to see 4/5 Big Five.

Communication with Mickey was excellent and he answered the millions of questions I asked. I liked that we were able to adjust accommodations (we upgraded our hotel in Arusha) based on our needs, and we were happy with ALL three locations.

The Kifaru Lodge and Mountain View Lodge were both top notch. The staff at both locations were friendly and professional. We loved practicing our Swahili with them. They were attentive to all our needs and went above and beyond to make our group feel comfortable. John, Merry, Samson, Forsten, Benson, and Samwel are just a few of the names from both locations. Wish I could remember them all.

I would definitely say we got “our monies worth”. The meals were never small in size, cheap, or subpar. The lodging was always great, and the professionalism provided by everyone was top tier!

Can’t wait to safari again with Savannah Explorers and Everest!

Beyond expectations
5/5

We take away a piece of Tanzania that will always remain in our memories.
A heartfelt thank you to our guide Geofrey who accompanied us on this wonderful adventure and made us fall in love with this magical land and the people who live there.
Geofrey is much more than a guide, he is an excellent driver, an expert knowledge of the animal world and his land, a kind guy, always ready to answer questions as well as having an incredible eye for spotting animals. We saw all the big five and up close too!
Thanks also to the Savannah team for the perfect organization and the speed and efficiency with which they recovered valuables (and quite a few) forgotten in a hotel safe without making us lose even a day of our safari.
We will be back for sure!

Incredible Experience with Timba!
5/5

We had the most amazing time with Savannah Explorers. Our tour guide Timba was the most knowledgable, helpful, patient and kind tour guide we have ever had in any recent trip. The animals we saw and the places we went were phenomenal, thanks to our guides skills and experience, as well as the great planning from Augustin in Savannah Explorers. I would 100% recommend Savannah Explorers because: planning and booking was smooth because Augustin did a great job communicating with us, understanding our needs while also making appropriate recommendations (like staying an extra day to ensure that we see the great migration). Hotel bookings and pick up / drop off at airports were also very smooth and well communicated throughout the team. Timba was a great driver and tour guide throughout our 6 day journey through Tanzania. Timba was super knowledgeable about the parks, the region and of course all of the animals, and were able to learn so much. Timba's experience and skills also allowed for great animal spotting, including the rare ones, which I know does not happen every time. If you are planning a safari trip, do your self a favor and book with Savannah Explorers!
