Professionalism, Efficiency, Availability and Constant Presence

We are very satisfied because we have received maximum attention and continuous assistance since we started organizing the trip, we thank Alessia for always being very helpful.
A special thank you to our guide Ally, known as Papaa, because he was truly wonderful, he was always very thorough in his explanations relating to the culture of Tanzania and ready to answer all our questions. We were able to see his profound knowledge of the places visited (Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro) because thanks to this, and also to a "hunter's eye”, in less than two days we were able to meet not only the BIG FIVE but even the BIG NINE and much more!. Ally also brilliantly resolved an unfortunate inconvenience that occurred during the tour. I take the liberty of recommending him to Italian visitors because he also speaks Italian well. In the Serengeti we also saw the sunrise from a hot air balloon, a fantastic experience!! The hotels chosen in both Tanzania and Zanzibar met our needs perfectly.

This is the third time we use Savannah's services for game drives in Tanzania and for the third time we are more than satisfied and happy
about their services!
We had this dream, in our heart, to visit Ruaha park, and with Alex's support and assistance, this dream could become true in the very best way we could ever expect
Everything was simply perfect and well organized , from the planning of the trip, till our return at home!
Ruaha is a marvelous park, still wild enough for you to enjoy the "peaceful feeling " that only a game drive in Tanzania can give you
Alex suggested the Camp and the lodges ... and everything was amazing!
Our staying at "Mwagusi camp" was exactly what we were looking for : the tent was super, spacious and very well kept , food was excellent, ( very good chef indeed ) Silence and quite completed our stay!
Kris and Rosie are 2 perfect hosts . Chatting with them in the evening, during dinner, is an added value : they share their knowledge about the park, wildlife, and also the country - thank you both
BUT our major THANKS !! goes to our Guide Jimmy and our Driver Hemed : they were simply marvellous!
so much engaged to make us happy and to let us see, discover whatever possible in wildlife, giving us daily surprises and emotions "
Their knowledge about wildlife ( and also small slopes ) is un-believable and for sure we will never forget them and their kindness
Only regret we have, is that it lasted too short, and we will have to go back there again, to pick up our hearts ..which remained there !!
than we spent 3 nights on Mafia Island ..and this was a total different experience for us : in Marine Habitat this time and we must say it was also very interesting.. if you think we could see the Shark whale !!
Just to make it short : EVERYTHING was amazing and we already miss Tanzania and Ruaha !!
Thanks Alex and Savannah team for having made all this possible !
We will surely be in touch again in future.. in case of a new Safari in Tanzania ! THIS is a CERTAINTY !

If you want a wonderful adventure of a lifetime choose Savannah Explorers.

We spent a lot of time looking at different safari companies on the internet, but we were so pleased we chose Savannah Explorers for our safari, they were professional from start to finish.
Agustin was our first point of contact, he compiled a bespoke 7 day safari for us, he was always polite and quick to respond to emails, offering many alternative options.
Our guide was Maulid, he was exceptional, a very likable; knowledgeable and experienced guide. Maulid put 100% effort into every aspect of his work, he made our adventure in Tanzania the best it could have been. Thanks to Maulid's experience we saw the big 5 and the migration, it was wonderful. We can't thank him enough for making our trip so memorable.
If you want a no hassle adventure of a lifetime choose Savannah Explorers.

Professional Driver, super good at spotting animals (from many km away!)

We travelled with Jackson and he was super! Available, he changed plans accordingly to our requests and he drives so good. He spots animals from many km away. Impressive!

Perfect and adventured honeymoon

We relied on Savannah Explorer for our honeymoon and it was an unforgettable experience.
Our super guide Richard was fantastic, he perfectly knows the habits and behaviors of the fauna that inhabits these wonderful landscapes and this allowed us to see all the animals.
Lodge, hospitality, food and organization impeccable.
It was all beyond our expectations.

He was very informative and professional, as well as flexible and accommodating

We had an amazing experience with Savannah Explorers! David was our guide for a 4 day safari and he was awesome! He was very informative and professional, as well as flexible and accommodating with the itinerary allowing us to make changes in the schedule that would better suit us. We were able to see all of the animals we wanted and all of the lodges were great. Would definitely recommend or book with them again!

The best ever!

We had the best experience with Savannah Explorers - a true dream! We are three women (mum + daughters) and we always felt safe and looked after.

From the start, Alessandra was amazing at helping us planning the trip. She replied quickly and adjusted the itinerary to our preferences. She answered all our many questions with kindness and endless patience.

All the lodges she booked for us are incredible (especially Kifaru Lodge and Marera Mountain View). They are all set in stunning sceneries, extremely clean and comfortable. The staff everywhere was amazing - everyone so kind and attentive.

The best thing about our safari was our guide, Emanuel Msangi. He is super professional and incredibly experienced, and shared his amazing knowledge about animals and nature. Thanks to him, we saw all the big five (including the black rhino!!), a cheetah hunt, and even the wildebeests crossing (one of the best experiences of our lives). He always found the best viewing spots, and he did absolutely everything to make sure we’d see the animals we wanted! He is such a skilled driver and we always felt so safe with him.

Grazie mille Alessandra, Emanuel and the whole Savannah team. We can’t wait to come back :) Paola, Camilla & Carlotta
