We want to thank our guide Filippo for his punctuality, friendliness and initiative. We want to thank our cook Sule for his skill in cooking dishes always different and yummy. The safary organization was perfect and we hadn't problems or delays.
If you want buy spices we suggest yuo to go to the gran market in Arusha, because it's very cheaper.
We suggest also to visit the snake park in Arusha, is very interesting and the guide is very expert.
We must to thank Filippo for this suggestions.

The power of nature and a wonderful culture...karibu in Tanzania!!
5/5

We chose to go on a Safari in Tanzania as a destination of our honeymoon...A Safari in Africa was a dream of mine since I was a child, and what we actually lived was even better than my dream! Savannah Exploreres, especially Rama, our guide, made our week spent in Tanzania the most moving experience in our lives. The Nature is so powerful that makes you stir, Rama explained us everything about the animals and about Tanzanian culture, which now we are in love with!! A good guide makes the difference, and in our week spent together, Rama has become our friend (or better, our "rafiki", since we lernt also some words in swahili!!)
We completed our journey with a 4-day stay in Zanzibar, in the peaceful village of Uroa...beautiful seaside and another great cultural experience...now we know that "African homesikness" exists...and there is no treatment for it...just thinking of the next journey to Africa!! Thanks to Savannah Explorers we made our dream true...Asante sana!!!

Our Bucket List Just Became Longer!
5/5

From first contact to our sad farewells, Savannah Explorers excelled in making this a memorable trip. Our guide, Peter, was simply amazing - his knowledge of the flora, fauna, animals and parks was only surpassed by his passion for the same and his awesome personality. Yes, we saw the big 5, many of them very up close & personal. It was the multitude of other animals we were just as fortunate to see that made it so that every single moment was special.

They even saved the day by chasing down one of our bags that didn't arrive with our flight - unfortunately containing most of Arlene's clean clothes - and getting it to us late on day 2 without any disruption to our itinerary.

Before we went, this was a once in a lifetime experience for our bucket lists - now we can't wait to explore more of the region, but only when Peter can be our guide!

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
