Excellent service and communication

My family of four, 2 boys 12 and 14, recently booked a 2 day Tanzania Safari with Honcho DMC from the USA.
From the first contact the company was very responsive and professional. I even had a problem with my email settings and the company reached out to me on WhatsApp directly to make sure I was getting all the information I was supposed to. My main contact was Naheed and he usually responded within an hour of a question.
We booked a Tanzania Safari to Selous National Park. The trip was fly into Dar Es Salaam, drive to the park spend two days and fly out to Zanzibar. Honcho DMC handled all airport transfers, setting up lodging, Safari guides and the flight to Zanzibar from the park.
Honcho DMC did not have that many reviews so I felt like I may have been taking a little risk, using the company but I was wrong.
Every driver, guide and activity was excellent.
Naheed even sent some extra treats for my family along the way that were really a nice touch. I felt well cared for at all points. All of our drivers were very friendly and were in the expected places at the right time. Even at our 3 am arrival at Dar Es Salaam!
I would recommend Naheed at Honcho DMC for anyone looking to make the trip. I feel like Naheed is now a friend even though we never met face to face.
I would also say the whole trip was very fairly priced. Our accommodations were the Kinga Lodge, the staff there was great.
Oh and we saw all the animals you could ever want to see, great location!

Professional, fast answers and friendly communication

We had the most amazing time on our safari that was organized by Honcho DMC. Everything was very well organized and there was always someone there to help us. Everyone was very friendly too. We also saw the most amazing animals in Serengeti and the guide took a lot of time to show us everything and was very knowledgable in his field. When we go back next year, we will definitely book with them again, I can only recommend Honcho DMC for any safari!

Trusted and experienced!

We had a wonderful experience of 2 nights fly-in from Zanzibar to Serengeti National Park! Honcho DMC made all the arrangements seamlessly, customized the tour and we had peace of mind throughout the travel. Particularly, they were very responsive (we communicated through WhatsApp) and considering this was our first Safari, I feel we made the right choice.

By the way, we made mind to do Safari about two weeks ahead of the travel date, kind of last minutes, but all the flight booking, local arrangements were completed by Honcho DMC, and hassle free on our end.

One note I would add, not necessarily to Honcho DMC, but Maasai cultural visit that we did was a bit disappointing… I think we should have been more cautious and be prepared but this one hour visit felt like pretty much to sell artifacts to us.. To be fair the chief of Masaai who can speak English explained many things, but I felt pressured to make purchase at the site and then end up paying A LOT MORE than it should be… Lesson learned on my end.

It was amazing and speechless!

The tour was super organized and everything worked out wonderfully. The guide of the safari tour, his name Amani, was very friendly. He explained us a lot and had a good eye for the animals. The driver was punctual every time. The overnight stay at the lodge is very worthwhile and an experience with very good food. We also enjoyed the boat safari and recommend early in the morning. The safari was an experience for us. Thanks to Naheed for the good organization and quick feedbacks.

Fantastic. Well Organised.

Well organised tour and great value for money.

I did a 2 day tour:
The safari itself - great guide: fun and knowledgable and we saw most of the animals.
Food was good and plenty of water.

Far exceeded my expectations! Lovely lodge. Great food. And I saw elephants from my terrace in the morning.

Well organised and they even stored my big bag in zanzibar as I was changing hotels upon my return to zanzibar.

From speaking to other people on the safari- I think price wise, this was very good value for money!
