Excellent experience

The experience with Serengeti Smile was great since our very first contact through WhatsApp. They were very responsive and accommodating to our requests and needs and kept in touch all the time. Once we landed our driver was waiting for us to take us to our hotel. Next morning our guide was waiting for us at the lobby. Everything went incredibly, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thank you Baraka for an amazing time! We 100% recommend.

Serengeti Smile may this trip unforgettable.

Serengeti Smile is a very professional tour operator. From the minute I book the tour, the communication was excellent. Frank kept us informed at all times and help us to find the best accommodations for our family of 5.
We decided on a private tour since our family is large. Ayub was our driver/ guide. He was excellent!! Professional and knowledgeable. A very friendly traveling companion that makes sure we get informed at all times. His knowledge of the area and eagle-eyed spotting game made our experience unique. We cant' wait to return to Tanzania with Serengeti Smiles.

Search no further! Hands down the best safari operator out there-experience, professionalism, value!

After contacting over 20 safari companies, comparing their offers, Frank blew me away with his communication and service and put together an absolutely phenomenal package at a great price. From the beginning he listened to what we were looking for and gave us loads of great advice and suggestions, then built the perfect trip for us. We were concerned about doing a safari with our 3 year old daughter and he helped make it not just manageable but an unforgettable experience for the whole family. Serengeti Smile are a young company but the owner and staff have been in the safari business for years. Whereas many companies we contacted were quite pushy with their sales tactics and email communication Frank was polite and answered our queries professionally and in a timely manner. His WhatsApp response time is excellent! Once we agreed on a 5 day package to visit Tarangire, Ndutu, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, we received a contract and an invoice. Unlike many companies, Serengeti Smile are very flexible with their payment options: bank transfers, card payments and cash in 3 currencies (EUR for us).
They also found us the best accommodation options within our budget (Kon Tiki Serengeti Camp blew us away!)

Our driver and safari guide-Ayubu, was incredible! He met us with a huge smile and despite Tanzanian custom (pole, pole), he was punctual each day. He went the extra mile to make sure every day was perfect and went smoothly with our daughter who adored him from day one. It probably helped that he gave her all the chocolate from his lunchboxes ;-) Even now, back home several weeks later, she keeps asking about Ayubu and whether he will show us some more animals today. He is the perfect choice for a safari with children as he is a father himself and loves children. He is a skilled safari guide and is passionate about the wildlife and environment. He has definitely found his vocation. Throughout the trip he told us loads of interesting facts and information about the animals and landscape. This really added value for us as we learnt so much in addition to seeing so many beautiful animals in their natural habitat. Another thing, as well as being an excellent, safe and considerate driver, Ayubu was the first to stop and offer help to another stricken driver in a remote location.

We cannot thank SERENGETI SMILE enough for making our Christmas safari so magical, it was an experience that we will never forget!

They’re very precise.

Serengeti smile made everything possible for me. I never imagined that I will find a tour operator at that moment because it’s just a day before my flight to Arusha. And Serengeti smile made it possible for me to experience African safari which I’ve been dreaming of for years. I will never regret booking with them. Frank was very helpful and very clear with itinerary and informing me even with a small change . Very transparent. And for Champion as my tourist guide, he is very very good. Very professional driver, patient, very accommodating, always on time.. I can’t thank them enough for an awesome,great, incredible experience. You guys must try to experience safari with Serengeti smile

Godwin our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and spoke great English.

We had a great experience with Serengeti Smile. From the first point of contact the communication was great, and leading up to the trip too.
The pick-up location and time was on time and professional.
We toured the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater. Godwin our guide was very knowledgeable on the areas and communicated with other guides from different companies inside the parks. They all work together to see as many animals as possible.
Frank tailored our wish list specific to us and emailed multiple options for us to choose. I also then asked to change days and add a day trip to Kilimanjaro which was not an issue at all. We made contact with Frank about 2 months prior to our dates in Tanzania.
It was a fantastic trip and hassle free with Serengeti Smile.
I would absolutely recommend Serengeti Smile.

Exceeded expations in communication, organization and consideration

We are an elderly couple , first time on safari and Serengeti Smile made this an enjoyable, interesting and safe experience for us. We saw a huge variety of animals and learned a lot about their life and habits from our guide/ driver. He also went the extra mile to give us the best opportunities to view the animals. The accommodation highlight was staying in the bush camp. We strongly recommend this company for a safari.

Serengeti Smile did more than expected, from start to end just perfekt

From the very first contact, Serengeti Smile wanted to secure a successful Safari. We got advice on what to do and they setup a Safari after some initial discussion. From the minute we met Ayubu we felt this was the man we needed to have a successful trip. With all his knowledge in Geography and Biology, we had a unique source to learn more. He found animals in all area and with good communication we got info. Saw all big 5
