Professional, available quickly to answer all questions and needs

It was a good experience that we won’t forget.
the game was very pleasant and the people very nice. even if we could not enjoy the pool, everything else was very good! at the lodge and in all our trips. special mention for Omary. it's the best. doing this travel without my husband with 3 children was a bit worrying for me. he was more than perfect. for the game but also everything around it. we felt safe and very well guided at all times. It was great. He explains clearly all we want to know about animals and the country. Very kind, professional. calling the boat safari is disappointing.. you see very few hippos and crocodiles. it was just a very pleasant ride to discover the country. by car, nothing to complain about, it was very addictive! rather than doing the safari while walking, the rest was deserved! it will be for next time… and one time for sure it was thanks to Omary. He knows his job and do it well

Great guide

We were treated to the best guide and more Francophone: Moussa

All arrangements went ahead on time, staff were friendly and reliable.

Our tour consisted of travelling from
Zanzibar to the safari and back, and consisted of a river safari and full day vehicle safari.

Mr Martin and Mr Musa were excellent, they tried very hard to spot as much wildlife for us as possible. Martin was always happy to share his knowledge on the animals and answer questions, and Musa was willing to drive pretty much anywhere to get us the best views, no matter how much reversing and tough terrain he had to navigate.

A couple of slight frustrations were that due to a miscommunication with the other safari hosts, we ended up wasting quite a lot of time trying to meet up for the lunch break. Also if I were to book again, I’d choose the option to fly both ways (rather than Ferry and taxi there and flight back). It took around 8 hours from Zanzibar to the safari lodge on the way there, but the flight back was only around 30 mins! Not sure why they would organise it that way.

Overall, based on the service of our guides, I’d happily recommend this tour operator.

Davis is truly passionate and love his job, a amazing man. Answered all our questions. We loved him!

Due to some bagage problems we had to postpone the safari for one day later last minute and the Team made everything to make it happen, we were super grateful for that.
Davis was super on time and made us feel comfortable directly!
The way from dar es Salaam to the camp is amazing and the car is super comfortable.
We stayed 2 nights, the room is big and the bathroom is cute and practical.
Food was super delicious.
We loved waking up and seeing the monkeys around our room!
The safari was super nice and the park is breathtaking!
Everyone was super friendly! Thank you so much again!

The tour operator could have been much more professional

The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is because on the day of arrival at i camp, the toilet was clogged and there was no water all afternoon. The next day there were problems with the electricity supply. There was no electricity for several hours and the door lock did not work. Problems in the entire camping area there are. The whole day Safari was wonderful. Michael was our guide. He was very professional, he showed us everything and did everything to make everyone satisfied. The first 2 days were unforgettable, but instead of the last day (bushman walk), I think it's one more day Safari would be better. Overall, I am satisfied.

a beautiful day with the wild animals.

The safari in the Nyerere Park in Tanzania was vers good. We had a very friendly guide who spent a lot of time to show us the wonderfull views and landscapes . Martin was very calm to find us the wild animals and explain their behavior. We were able to admire the bigs five (lion, elephant, giraffe, hyena, antelope, crocodile, hippopotamus, warthog, monkeys,..) . Plane flights, jeep transfers, lunches, everything was perfect.
only negative point was the lodge who was dirty, noisy (hydrophore unit), lack of hot water in the morning and frugal and poor quality meals.

We had a very nice and professional driver, Katuku.

The value for the money was good. Only the change to the nyerere tent camp at the very last minute was not ok, althoug the rooms there were very nice, but in african safari lodge we could take a swim and at night there were Elephants coming to the existing pond.
A big thank you to the nice driver Katuku!

Very friendly and helpful.

The communication was very good, but the evening bevor they changed the lodge for the first night and it was not as good as the second lodge. All over all it was a very good safari but rather expensive as we stayed not in the national park lodges. Our driver was very nice and had a good knowledge of animals and their behavior.

Worked very hard to show us all the animals . Really wanted us to have the best experience ever.

Thoroughly enjoying . Everything was organised brilliantly . Plane sailing throughout excursion. saw 3 of the big five - not bad going for a 2 x day trip! Guides were professional and knowledgeable.
Plane journey too and from, were hassle free and excellent. .
Would certainly recommend you and my guide in the future.

Very nice experience !

We took a private 3 days safari with lodge (boat, jeep, walk).

The general organization of the tour was pretty good. Our driver picked up us in DAR and dropped us in DAR too, he was really arranging !

First day, 4 hours max of driving to Selous and then lunch at the camp. After that we went to boat safari for 3~4 hours, really great experience with a lot of animals (birds, crocodile, hippopotamus) and with a beautiful sunset on the river !
Back to the camp for dinner, by the way food was very good during all the stay, and then we sleep in the lodge, it was clean and corresponding well to pictures on safari booking. Be careful the electricity is not available during all the day, but it's clearly not a problem.

Second day, approximately 7 hours of game drive in the Nyerere national park, which start at 7am. Amazing experience, we saw a lot of different animals (lion, elephant, giraffe, birds, pumba, hippo, impala...) with perfect explanations from our guide HENRY.

Third day, the one where we were the most disappointed for the walking safari. We thought that we were going to walk during 2~3 hours, but in fact we start at 6:30 am, and we almost didn't walk (15 min). Our "guide" talked to us about a nest and a cactus during 1 hour, and after that he showed us how to make a fire like Bear Grills. It's interesting, but not what we expected.

The lunch wasn't included for the last day, therefore we don't understand why the company didn't recommend us to take a plane at DAR in the evening. If you're making the walking tour, it ends at 8:30am, so it's ok to take a plane at the end of the day. So we preferred to stay for lunch and enjoy the swimming pool and camp. Thank again to our driver, who wait for us !

Special thanks to Henri, who was really kind and with excellent knowledge for our game drive !
