Serengeti? Savannah Explorers!
5/5

My wife and me decided to visit Serengeti (an old dream of my wife) with my daughter that is twelve years old. We contacted Savannah Explorers, advised by friends and that was a good advise. From the beginning, the contact was simple, direct and kind. We told our ideas and Roberto proposed the accommodations, the parks to visit and the best itinerary. The guide, Maulid, was very friendly and a expert in all kind of birds. He knew all the names in english and in italian! The driver, Manase, was also a great expert in all the situations. There is no problems in traveling with kids and Roberto and Floriana were always available to respond to every question.

A beatiful experience, due to guide's professionalism and to accomodation in high level lodges
5/5

We spent 4 unbelivable days, seeing a lot of animals, many unforgottable savana sights and also meeting local polulations ( Masai and other native africans peoples ), that made our safari very complete. A special thanks to our guide Peter and of course to Roberto that organized evrerything in a perfect way.

Roberto the best!!!
5/5

So ... we organized our Wedding Trip with Roberto ..... and we could not have been more lucky !! I'll explain it from the beginning !! We were looking for a local agency so we could save, but we were organizing our honeymoon trip to Africa so it was hard to be able to trust !! We read many reviews from various agencies, but they did not allow to tailor the journey according to their own ideas !! Then one day we read about Savannah Explorers and it was tough because this review was perfect, but Savannah Explorers did not find anything on TripAdvisor (in fact my advice is to sign up) !!! In short, we contacted the agency and found out an absurd availability !! Roberto not only responded to over 30 emails but also called me by telephone to give me every detail! And so it was: the trip we customized us by choosing the lodges we most liked among many !! Obviously it is important to also stay at their advice because being in the place know what is best and what not !!! All the holiday (North Parks + Zanzibar) were organized to perfection without giving anything to chance !! A great thanks to our guide Jamesy who with his experience has been able to see us all: lions (more than 50), leopards, cheetahs, lion cubs, migration gnu through Mara River and also rhinoceros (very rare) .... .and then all the rest that Savana can offer you !!! Not forgetting 3 lioness horses !!! Roberto also organized the Night Safari (experience you can not miss) !! Last tip .... do not miss the camped tent camps Ang'Ata Camp .... the night at 2 there were gnu and gazelle in front of the tent entrance with hyenas at 20 meters !!! Thanks Roberto and thanks to all the staff and I hope to reorganize something together soon !!!

Excellent safari, our guide has been very friendly and was really prepared
5/5

It was our first safari. We are a family with 3 kids (from 12 to 7). We did Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Our guide has been very helpful to explain every aspect of wild animals life and was also very patient with the questions of the kids. We really enjoied the kati kati tented camp in the Serengeti. Everything was well organised. The only thing we didn't enjoied much was the visit to the Masai village just north the Ngorongoro crater. But, to be onest, it was not in the program and we did ask our guide to stop there. Enrico

My dream trip. A fantastic travel, that we will always carry in our hearts
5/5

We've always had a dream: visiting Africa and discovering its parks.
Surfing the net, we discovered Savannah Explorers (http://www.savannahexplorers.com) and it's the best choice we have ever done.
From the first contact, Roberto and Floriana, gave us the impression that they are seriously and professional.
Roberto and Floriana asked about our dream trip and offered us a travel package including sightseeing Tarangire's park, Ngorongoro's park and Serengeti's park. They also recommended us to spend a few days in Zanzibar.
We followed all their advice and for one night we slept in a tent in Serengeti's park. This was an amazing experience.
Ibrahim, our guide for 5 days, spook Italian very well. He showed us many animals and he explained a lot about them.
All the locations, when they have booked, were beatiful and no one had left us disappointed.
We have known Masai's lifestyle and have visited an orphanage. All the experiences have been very exciting.
What can we say? Thank you for helping us to realize our dreams!

Not bad, but it doesn't feel like it is the trip of the life time
3/5

We had an OK time with our tour guide Anwar. He was good when we first meet him. He was explaining things while driving on the first day. From the 2nd day onward, our guide was more interested in looking at his phone . Instead of guiding, he would most just answer our questions.

The Olea Lodge and Kati Kati camps are the good choice for our 4 nights stay. We were delighted to see the Olea Lodge is actually a lot better than the photos. Kati kati camp was an interesting experience. They have a good crew to make sure the food is hot and good. Our guide changed one of the full day game drive to go back to camp for 3 hours lunch and then tried to drive fast to catch up in the afternoon. We were not impressed as we have a five year old girl in the car and would prefer steady driving.

We were there in the low season, so there are some animals here and there but didn't have the "Wow" factor.

We are not happy that we almost missed our flight on the last day as the guide was late for about 40 to 50 minutes to pick us up from the hotel. Maybe our experience would be better if our guide was more Enthusiastic and not focused so much on his phones.

Dear Samantha, I'm sorry to read our guide didn't provide the best service. They are not allowed using the phone while they are driving or on game drive, they are supposed to provide enough information, drive carefully and be on time.
I appreciate your feedback, I have already called him in the office and this won't happen again.
Once again we apologize for what happened.
Kind Regards,
Roberto

Great Tanzania Safari
5/5

Our safari with Savannah Explorers was amazing! I researched this trip carefully and found that Savannah Explorers offered us the most for our money. There were three of us and we were very happy with this choice.
Roberto was extremely helpful. We e-mailed and skyped with him. He answered all of our questions promptly and sent us a detailed itinerary and a lot of valuable information about Tanzania and about what we needed for safari. He designed a plan for us according to our wishes. There was never a problem with planning.
We did not see Grayson, but our guide Abdul was great! He showed us so many animals.We saw all of the big five. He was good at spotting animals we otherwise would not have seen and he gave us a wealth of information about the animals, the people and the country. When we asked questions he answered in detail. He stopped often for us to observe and take photos.
Our vehicle was more comfortable than I had imagined it to be, although we drove over many bumpy, rutted roads. Water, soft drinks and beer were provided. We charged our phones and cameras in the vehicle.(Be sure to bring a converter to connect to.) We went on exciting game drives, including a night drive with a different guide. If you go on a night drive, be sure to bring a camera. We saw three cheetahs eating a zebra, which we were told was a rare sighting.
All of our accommodations were beautiful and very comfortable. I especially liked Kati Kati tented camp in the Serengeti. The atmosphere was just what we expected on safari; the food was amazing and the staff, especially David, the camp director, was friendly and very helpful.
Do not miss Ngorongoro Crater. It is worth your while to spend a little extra to stay at the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge at the lip of the crater. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The lodge itself was gorgeous. The view of the crater from the lodge's huge windows, from the terraces and balconies and from our room was magnificent. We saw baboons playing right below our window.
The animals, the terrain, the people, our accommodations-all of our experiences added up to an unforgettable adventure which we highly recommend to everyone. Thank you Savannah Explorers!
