Unforgettable Honeymoon!!!
5/5

We truly enjoyed our experience with Savannah Explorers!! We went on a 6 day safari in Tanzania and in those six days our tour guide, David, got us up close to "the big 5" and many more beautiful animals and birds!! David was extremely knowledgeable and made the safari so much better. He could spot an animal far off in the distance and knew the names of all the birds!! Not only that but when we would find a new animal, he would give us interesting facts about them!! My husband and I learned so much from David and enjoyed his company. He became a friend of ours and we are already planning a return visit!! Savannah explorers is very flexible and will plan a trip to meet your wishes!! Our tour guide was also very flexible. We would say, "we want to see hippos"...a few minutes later, David would show us a pool full of hippos!!! He catered to our every need and made us feel fully comfortable. Thank you so much David and Savannah Explorers for making my honeymoon perfect and unforgettable :-D

The best voyage I ever did!
5/5

I started with a lot of expectation to Tanzania and I can say it was wonderful, a unique experience. The tour guides from Savannah Explorers are very friendly, excellent drivers and they know all about animals and landscape. The whole trip was very good prepared, we had comfortable days. Allways cold drinks and picnic areas with marvelous view. And the animals! We saw all of them! So much, I was soooo delighted. We visited Tarangire NP, Serengeti, Arusha NP and Ngorongoro, where I lost my heart. When I ever come back to look for it I will ask Greyson and his team from Savannah Explorers to help me to find it. Thank you for the best journey I ever did.

Amazing trip
5/5

We spent 8 days traveling in the Northern parks of Tanzania. Everything was extremely satisfactory: we had a great viewings in each park we visited, excellent organization and accommodation with good value for money.
Roberto and Greyson arranged everything according to our needs tailoring our trip to fit our flight schedules and providing the best solutions also considering that we were traveling with children (12 and 8 years old).
There was no redundancy in the different sites we visited (Arusha NP, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro) since every park had its peculiar landscape and different animals could be admired.
Ibrahim, our guide, was great driver, knowledgeable, friendly and always available and willing to help. His experience in exploring the different parks was an added value to find the best spots for animal viewing. We had therefore the opportunity to see more wild animals than expected surrounded by breathtaking views.
All accommodation was excellent and perfect for each situation, both lodges and tended camps. We really enjoyed the amazing location of Tarangire and the kindness and warm welcome of the Kati Kati camp staff in the Serengeti Park.
Overall we really had a great time and wish to thank all the Savannah Explorers team for this amazing trip.

Thank you for an extraordinary and unforgettable experience!!
5/5

9 marvelous days of being on the road with three Safari trucks and tour guides from Savannah Explorers. Nothing could have prepared us for such an unbelievable experience!! From the very first moment we felt very comfortable with Greyson, George and Masaki. They were excellent and safe drivers and everyone in our group of 21 from Germany (including my two wonderful sisters Karin and Inke) had only good words to say about them. George was our guide in car No.2 and I felt that he had such an amazing intuitive connection with nature. I am sure he spotted every single camouflaged animal on our way that we would have missed for sure (never mind, we DID see the giraffes and elephants without his help!!), and we saw them all: Elephants, giraffes, Hippos, lions, leopards, monkeys, even a cheetah. George also showed an incredible knowledge about them and their natural habitat and never got tired to explain everything in detail.
Masaki knew a lot of German, so the company even provided the group with a German translator.
Greyson made sure that all went smooth and without problems. Did he ever sleep? He was always smiling and in a good mood and ready to answer any question or offer his help . After a long day when we relaxed in beautiful lounges, our tour guides cleaned the trucks, stocked them with cold water, soft drinks, breakfast and lunch boxes and yeah!!! an ice cold beer for lunch, with lions just sitting right beside our truck.
Thinking back of all these long but unforgettable hours in the comfortable safari trucks I feel that Savannah Explorers offered absolutely top quality service and I would love to recommend them to anybody who is looking for a very well organized and well prepared Safari experience with super friendly and efficient guides. All of us in our group agreed on this and my sisters and I hope to come back to Tanzania one day for another unique experience.

5/5

We had a great experience visiting Tanzania.Our guide/driver was well informed.He was always available o answer all our questions about safari in general snce this was our first safari.Serengeti is the best.Saw all big five.We would certainly recommend Savannah Explorers to future travelers.Roberto was very helpful from planning the trip to the end of the trip.
One thing we would like to share is that make sure your vehicle is in excellent condition.We were stuck with a subpar vehicle!!
Overall,the experience was very satisfying.We have about seven gamedrives in different parks.
We visited serengeti,lake Manyara,Ngorongo and tarangire national park.

Dear Fiorella,
we are very sorry about the problem with your jeep. In last 2 days there was a problem with the starter and they had to push the jeep to switch it on. The problem has been fixed as well as we have done complete engine overall, check-up and re-painted this jeep. Our guide didn't report this problem to our office and we couldn't send another jeep. We have talked to our guide to make sure this will not happen again.
We are very sorry about what happened.
Best Regards,
Roberto

Excellent stay in a wonderful land
5/5

We spent a week in Tanzania for our honeymoon travel. Since the first contact in programming our journey, Roberto (the Italian co-owner) was very professional and incredibly quick in answering to any our question or doubt. We also met the Tanzanian co-owner Greyson during our first day, who gave and confirmed us every detail in our weekly program and gave us all the contacts that might be necessary in case of need. As landed in Kilimanjaro airport we found our driver/guide/friend Said that brought us among the best parks and landscapes we have ever seen (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the fantastic Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater), showing all his professionality and knowledge in flora and fauna. We were amazed by his ability in noticing smallest figures and recognizing wildbeast while we were not able to recognize them even with lenses (..and he was always right!!) and in his ability in getting in best positions for watching and anticipate beasts' moving. Last but not least he is a very funny person without ever losing is professionality during our game drives.
Lodges and tented camps were all perfect, they have fully satisfied our expectations. We warmly suggest this T.O. to everyone wants to discover this fantastic country.

Amazing Safari
5/5

Our safari with Savannah Explorers was absolutely wonderful, we enjoyed every minute of it!
Ibrahim, our guide, was excellent. He is a fantastic wildlife spotter who will see the ear of a lion sticking out of the grass at 1 km distance - amazing! He was also extremely good in positioning our vehicle always in the best position for observing and photographing, meaning he was excellent in anticipating the animal's behaviour.
In addition we highly appreciated the professional but very unbureaucratic organization of this safari. Roberto always replied immediately to all our inquiries and changes of plan and this made it extremely easy for us.
Thank you all for an overwhelming and unforgettable trip!!!
We certainly recommend Savannah Explorers to everybody!
