Fascinating tour with a fantastic guide

We've had a 3-day tour. Our guide tried very hard on the first day we spent in Tarangire Park. He made every effort to see the maximum number of animals. In addition, during our visit, he constantly shared interesting facts about animals and their lives. On the second day, we had a small force majeure, but it's worth paying tribute, they took care of us at a good clinic, and guys accompanied us throughout this period. Thank you so much for this! It is essential to know that if something happens to you during the trip, you will not be abandoned but will be helped) We did not get to Ngorongoro on the second day, but Ngekewa quickly organized another tour to Manyara Park. On the third day, we had a visit to the coffee plantation. A lovely family greeted us. We cooked traditional dishes and learned the processes of making coffee. Thank you so much for these indescribable feelings.

Fab game drive and coffee tour

Can't fault them. Everyone was friendly and helpful throughout. Good value for money. Picked us up promptly from our hotel. Excellent game drive to Ngorongoro, the tour guide Joseph was very knowledgeable and thoughtful and took his time to find things we really wanted to see (the black rhino and hippos). Lovely home cooked meal, not just sandwiches for lunch. The coffee/waterfall tour the following day was a lot of fun. Soufriane the guide was very helpful. Joined in with all of the activities and made the whole experience special. Baraka and his wife Jessica were very welcoming and we had a great experience cooking our lunch and making our own coffee. We thoroughly recommend this tour.

Amazing Safari

We had a wonderful time on this trip to Tanzania. Everything went perfectly ! Our guide Salim was extremely professional, informative, helpful and patient. We had the chance to see many animals. I would 100% recommend this memorable trip !

The review below is the personal opinion of Atilyo and not that of SafariBookings.
It was really amazing

We starting researching safaris about a year before travel. Because of Covid, I'm so glad we chose Tanzania in the end.

We chose to work with Salim because he is a local Tanzanian with tons of experience. Be careful with the bigger outfitters, you won't get quite as personalized experience and it will cost more.

Salim had great communication from the beginning and answered all of my many questions patiently. We chose to do an 8 day safari, visiting Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorogoro Crater and the Serengeti. Our guide was a true expert with years of experience and spoke perfect English (which is helpful because they are explaining so much about the animals). Having a good guide is vital to a successful safari as you spend so much time with them.

If you're looking to save a bit of money, here are my tips.
The affordable lodging is the route we went (mid level) and it exceeded expectations. Don't fret about staying at a fancy lodge, you're barely there, and when you are, you are exhausted. Save your money. I would have been disappointed if we spent extra on a nicer lodge because often we were gone from the room from 7-6pm.

Also, 5-6 days is plenty. I have no regrets about doing 8 days, but if I was on a tighter budget, we would have been just as happy with shaving a few days off the trip. We figured it was a once in a lifetime experience, so why not, but we definitely could have saved one day, which would have been about a $750 savings.

Flying from the Serengeti, or to the Serengeti, depending on how your trip is planned, is worth the money, but you could do the drive and save quite a bit. Our flights were $800 and in hindsight, I would have suffered through the bumpy drive back to save the money. BUT if you get car sick or hate traveling for long periods, spring for the flights, it does save time.

Here are some things I wish we would have known that I felt the internet was misleading about.

The clothing.
Yes, wearing lightweight clothing is important as the weather does change rapidly. That being said, you are in a vehicle most of the time. I certainly wouldn't have dropped as much money as I did on "safari" clothes if I knew we were barely going to get out of the vehicle. Bring a variety of clothes but don't fret terribly about the color.

Game drive time.
Everyone told me we needed to be up and on the road at 5:30, 6 am. This isn't true. We didn't start any game drives before 7:30 and saw plenty.

Camera gear.
Yes, having a long telephoto lens definitely helps if you're a photography junkie like me, BUT, you do get fairly close to most animals. Unless you're an pro or semi pro photographer, a 70-200mm lens will do you just fine.

The ONLY con I really have is the food, which isn't necessarily a con, just something to prep for. Most places you'll go are fairly remote and the cooks have to do their best with what resources they've got. While all the food tasted great, it is a simple menu. The packed lunches are quite simple as well, so bring snacks if you're a picky eater. For the total cost of the trip, normally food would be more "gourmet" so just be prepared. Once you see the landscape and the villages, you'll understand the depths the camps go through to provide good, fresh meals.

We had a phenomenal time and if you're on the fence, BOOK it! Using a local guide with on the ground knowledge like Salimu is the way to go.

Excellent agency, great tours.

Good agency. Jocelyn responded quickly to our questions and arranged airport pick-up and transfer. The tour was really nice. Our guide/driver David was very nice, funny, explained everything about animals, didn't rush the group while providing the information about different scenarios. Our chef Geoffrey prepared excellent meals and were very delicious. I highly recommend Ngekewa tours due to their excellent services.
