Great tour with amazing people
5/5

We were able to see a variety of animals including the big 5! The tour guide and the chef were really kind and explained everything to us.
Also the other tour participants were absolutely cool and we became good friends.

Kilipath Afrocan Safari was always on time and responded quickly so totally recommended!!
Would like to use them again.

I would warmly recommend, it was 10/10
5/5

We had been communicating on Whatsapp from my home country. They prepared various options at my request and were very responsive and kind. After arriving in Arusha, they picked us up at our hotel and left us at Kilimanjaro Airport as per our request. The safari was amazing! The lodges exceeded expectations, and the food there was also nice. The tour guide was so kind and fun, making the experience truly enjoyable. We saw all the Big Five and many other animals! It was an unforgettable experience!

The review below is the personal opinion of Em and not that of SafariBookings.
I do not trust this company! They cancelled an already confirmed trip a few hours before as they resell peoples paid tickets
1/5

I would never trust this company!! We had booked a safari trip directly through them well in advance, paid the deposit as advised and received a confirmation of booking together with flight tickets. The night before our trip the company emails us at 10:02pm (pickup was agreed for 6:30am) to inform that they cancel our trip. They gave us no reason for cancellation and when our hotel staff called them, they told that they had re-sold our tickets to someone else. Later on they told us that airline had canceled the flight, which we found out to be a lie and no flights were actually canceled…

So besides causing us a huge disappointment, they also decided to blindly lie to us and not take any responsibility of their actions whatsoever. Our customer service representative Charity also decided to stop responding our emails leaving us unanswered.

All in all, incredibly bad customer service and non-reliable company. I highly recommend to book through someone else!

Lovely/amazing/unforgettable would reccomend
5/5

Booking the tour was so simple and straight forward, we were in touch with felix and he picked us up personally from the airport and made sure we were well accommodated and looked after, we did a 3 days safari and saw every animal possible from mice to lions, the food was amazing and the hospitality of all the staff was really good, we hope to come again and would advise others to use this company, also the camp site looked amazing (we booked a lodge which was absolutely great) however when speaking to our group they also said it was an experience they will never forget. I could go on but I have a flight to catch but I hope to be back soon

Excellent tour with professional company!!!
5/5

The safari trip was absolutely amazing from start to end. Lifetime memories. We visited the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. I went on a 3-day safari and slept in a tents. (Solo traveller) they provided a tent for me alone good and other necessities for sleeping well. Everything was professional from the booking of the safari to the last taxi trip to the airport. Felix took great care of me. communication was clear, smooth and fast and service through whole safari was excellent. The driver Gide Damian was simply the best. He was an excellent driver who really made us feel safe and was informative about the places and animals. Also the chef of the safari took great care of us with tasty foods. The safari was totally worth of the money. I highly recommend Kilipath African Safari to everyone.

Skilled and prepared
5/5

The tour operator offered us a very detailed tour via email, personalized on our needs. There were few changes, all quickly and flawlessly managed. We didn't have to worry about anything because they planned everything, from pickup to luggage claim when we got back. The tour - 2 days in Serengeti and 1 in Ngorongoro - has been amazing. Our guide, Abouh, has been excellent and let us see all the animals and different situation driving as fast as possible when he knew something was happening. We asked different quotation to several tour operators, this was one of the most convenient with a valuable and organized service. I would definitely suggest it!

Perfect organisation, communication and the best guide
5/5

Our trip really was one of the best experience in our lives. The location of Serengeti and Ngorongoro and all the animals was amazing of course but it wouldnt be that amazing without our perfect guide who knew where to go, had lots of stories and knowledge and he was just amazing. The whole communication with Felix from Kilipath was very quick and nice. We cannot be more satisfied and recommend the Kilipath to everybody.

Really great experience
5/5

My overall rating for Kilipath is really good. Felix was reaponsive and answered all my questions. The accomodation for the 3 nights were great too. Our tour guides were nice and knowledgeable; always explaining things and answering any questions our group had.
I also opted for the hot air baloon ride and although it was expensive I thought it was worth it.
The one thing that that I thought Kilipath should have told me beforehand is that they did not operate the tour themselves but the tour was operated by another company; nevertheless I went to the places that was agreed on and stayed on the same accommodation that was shown so I wasnt bothered much. Also note that part of the group stayed in different accommodation nearby.
Overall, I had an amazing experience and would gladly book again with Kilipath; I would just ask them before who will actually be operating the tour ill be with.
