Wonderful Safari with Widman Tours!

We visited Ruaha, Mikumi and Selous (now renamed to Nyerere National Park). Each park has its own charm, relief and nature. That was my first time doing safari, and I'm quite impressed by the diligence and good organisation's of Widman's safaris. Widman and his team did their best to make our group feel comfortable at all times from start to end.
Also, special thanks and big kudos to our guide & driver Gilbert - who has an eagle eye to find the Wildlife through bushes and trees hundreds meters away. Gilbert is very knowledgeable and experienced guide, who always tries his best to show you all he could during a safari.
Highly recommend him and Widman's safari agency for the organisation and the good job during our whole trip

Amazing safaris in Ruaha, Mikumi and Nyerere National Parks

I took 3 people on safari with Widmans Tours & Safaris in July 2021. Most of the time (6 nights) we spent in Ruaha National Park with one overnight (one drive) in Mikumi NP as a logistical stop during the transfer from Dar es Salaam to Ruaha. On the way back we stayed one night in Iringa.

All of us are experienced safari goers (I have been to 40+ parks and reserves in 9 African countries) and eager wildlife photographers, so I this is not a comment from a first timer. We are extremely happy with the tour and especially with our guide Gilbert, a very competent and already experienced young man with eagle's eye for wildlife sightings, as well as excellent knowledge of birds, mammals, reptiles, trees and plants. Please, check the photos from this trip that I have uploaded along with this review.

Gilbert is also a very nice and easy going person, a delight to spend time with. He was very hard working and flexible, satisfying every requirement that we had.

Widman, the owner of the company also worked very hard to organize the trip and made sure that every detail has been taken care of.

In January, 2022, I had another safari (this time with a group with another 5 people) with Widmans Tours & Safaris to Ruaha, Mikumi and Nyerere National Parks. All said above applies for this trip, as well.

I would strongly recommend Widmans Tours & Safaris to anyone trying to get the most for their money for either a long or short safari in Tanzania, especially in the Southern Circuit parks - Ruaha, Nyerere (former Selous Game Reserve) and Mikumi.

I sincerely hope that I will be able to use this company's services again for future safaris in Tanzania.

Spot on time at the pick up spot had an eventful journey to Ruaha National park. Our tour guide had organized all payments and was smooth all the way to the park. We had a wonderful 3 day trip with breath taking sunrise by the Ruaha river to adventures game drives and evening camp fires. Our tour guide knew all the spots to find game crowned by a pride of 7 lions. It was a great trip for the family; thanks Widman Tours and Safari.

Amazing safari in Nyerere National Park!

We had a fabulous four-days safari in the Nyerere National Park in February 2022. We spent our nights at a small camp on an island in the Rufiji river. Our bungalow was right on the bank of the river with a magnificent view to the mighty Rufiji. Each day we took a boat to and from the park which really added to our daily safaris. Our guide, Gilbert was simply great! He was very professional with lot of knowledge about wildlife and where to find it. He did his best to show us the beauty of the park. And even when we gave up on something, he did not and showed us how patience pays :). We will definitely another, longer trip with him and I recommend Gilbert to anyone who wants to go on safari.
