Great Operator!!! I definitely recommend!

We organized our trip online from germany. After first contact, we had the chance to organize everything with Jackson on whats app, which made it very easy for us. I was already feeling comfortable, when he was asking about tiny details like allegies e.g.. He and his company will do anything that you will have the best stay. Our guide was a nice and fun guy speaking good english and the cook made on every meal great food. Of course we saw the the big five and had a great time on the safari-jeep.

I highly recommend Jackson as your safari guide

We had a wonderful 5 day safari with Jackson. He knows so much about all animals, could answer all our questions about birds, mammals, ecology and culture. He showed us all the animals and pointed out many birds and plants. I really felt that he anticipated all our needs and was very attentive to any request. We also loved the tented camps that he arranged for us. It was a great experience

Amazing, once in a lifetime trip beautiful choreographed and guided by the incredible Jackson!

We found Jackson through a personal recommendation. Having worked in tourism for close to 30 years, I understand the value of the rare breed of a guide who is personable, knowledgeable, experienced, and most importantly, is able to understand their clients and their needs. Going to a very unfamiliar place, it is crucial to put your trust in somebody who is able to craft the perfect program to suit your needs. We saw all the animals one could hope to see - including the rare Serval cat and Black Mamba snake! - and were introduced to some of the more colorful communities in Tanzania - the Masai and bushmen. Jackson was much more than a guide, but through his background (raised Masai and converted to Christianity), he gave us remarkable insights into Tanzania and its people and society. I would give him a grade of 15 on a scale of 1-10 and unconditionally recommend him as a safari guide. “The Serengeti will never die!”

Once in a lifetime experience!

Once I planned with my brother our Tanzania trip I was referred to this company by a good friend of mine from Germany who had a great Safari with Jackson. We had a private 4-day budget Safari with Jackson and our awesome chef Chuku. He picked us up at the airport and showed us Arusha as we planned the next few days at a coffee shop in Arusha. He helped us getting SIM cards, exchanging money and assisted with any questions. After that he took us to the hotel and picked us up early in the morning . We had a wonderful adventure. Those 4 days were full of laughter, singing, enjoying and celebrating together. We saw the Big 5 after just 2 days. Jackson and Chuku always took good care of us and adjusted wakeup times to our wishes. Jackson was an awesome guide and it was really hard to say goodbye since we're still in contact even after we left. He always assisted us in any matter we had on our trip and even managed transfers for us in Sansibar. I can 100% recommend you to book with Jackson and his company, you will not regret it!

Thank you once again !

I'd go anywhere with Jackson!

Jackson put together a Tanzania tour for a group of 9 of us that was tailored to our needs and desires. We were aged 28 to 70, all in good shape. We camped in tents mostly, with a couple of short stays at the Panorama Safari Camp. In 10 days we saw Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Lake Natron, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge and several days on the Serengeti.
There were Jackson and another guide, both local and very knowledgeable, a chef and his helper who traveled with us. My daughter and I had special dietary needs (gluten free and dairy free) and the meals were wonderful. Everyone agreed.
We saw amazing wildlife up close--elephants, hippos, all the antelope, giraffes, flamingos, lions, cheetahs, 3 leopards (!), fish eagles, bee eaters and so much more.
As importantly, we met locals from various indigenous groups. Jackson and the other three guides were each from a different group. We learned so much. Many of our group have stayed in touch with Jackson, me included.
The prices were extremely reasonable, the experiences life changing. I literally would go anywhere with Jackson.

Friendliest guy ever, absolutely love Jackson and look to see him again outside of safari!

TZA Juvenile Safaris tour was fantastic, from a super open and friendly guide to a fantastic safari experience. Our guide was experienced and knew what he was looking for and where to find it. Had eyes of a hawk and pointed out wildlife at every twist and turn. Communicated with other guides in order to find all fascinating and rare wildlife possible. Left this safari more than satisfied with the experience and made a true friend in the process.

Once-in-a-lifetime experience with Jackson

Jackson accompanied our family of five for 6-day safari, and also arranged our Kilimanjaro mountain climb. We are so grateful to have worked with Jackson! The safari was truly amazing, and Jackson is a pro, a top-notch and experienced guide who optimized the whole thing. He knows the parks, the animals, the back roads, and apparently all of the people and guides who work around the parks! Jackson's knowledge and friendly nature made our experience complete and inspiring. Furthermore, Jackson's meticulous organization of all the activities made our Tanzania visit a magical time free of stress. We highly, and without any reservation, recommend TZ Juvenile safari.

Amazing Jackson Safari!!

My first safari that I will never forget.

With my two buddies we booked a private safari. Luckily for us, we got to experience this safari together with Jackson.
He planned our tour for 5 days and showed us the most beautiful and important places of the national parks. Jackson proved to be a very good guide that we were often the first to see a rare jaguar or cheetah.
During our trip, Jackson grew very close to our hearts. At the Serengeti Park we had dinner together and he told us a lot about his family. He has a good feeling for giving someone his privacy, but still passing on a lot of information. So he was not only our Guid, he became our friend.

I recommend the safari 100%!

Thank you Jackson
