Excellent
5/5

Our safari trip with Goldfinch Adventures was one of the best we have ever been on. Deo, our tour operator, was very accommodating and customized the itinerary multiple times to fit our needs. We saw amazing animals, from elephants in Tarangire to lions in the Serengeti. Deo even helped us to include a chimp trekking tour in Mahale. Our guide, James, was knowledgeable and knew exactly where to go to see the best animals. We truly had a great time!

Kind and well experienced
5/5

Encountered animals up close; 10/10 safari experience. An extremely kind and knowledgeable guide. The food was fantastic. The lodges were spectacular and good value for what we paid for.

3 Perfect Safari Days
5/5

A stress-free experience. Breath-taking scenery of the Ngorongoro Crater ridge. Beautiful animals roam freely in the wild… zebras, lions, elephants, and a lot more! Perfect accommodations at a “more-than-fair” price! We’ll never forget this trip.

Enthusiastic
5/5

Excellent customer service. The company is well run with easily contacted staff over more accommodating apps such as WhatsApp, as well as email. The guides where very warm, welcoming and energetic. We booked a 4 day tour in the Serengeti and Ngoronoro Parks.

All in all the experience was interesting and informative. A great experience. I would highly recommend if you where ever in Tanzania.

A Great Experience, Couldn’t have asked for more
5/5

I had an amazing time on my safari to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. Though I ran into some troubles with my local flight, Deo made sure I was able to join up with my safari group in time to continue with the journey. Communication with him from the very start was swift, and friendly, and also provided answers to our concerns. Our guide on the safari was excellent, he knew his stuff and knew exactly how to move around the national parks. THE CHEF WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! Overall a great experience!

perfect and well organized
5/5

My friends and I booked a hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro and Safari with Goldfinch Adventures. Best decision ever! We reached out to Deo during the planning phase and he was quick to reply to all the questions that we had. He even took us out for dinner the first day we arrived and that made us feel welcomed in a foreign country, far away from home.

KILIMANJARO
We hiked Kilimanjaro via the Machame route as Deo recommended. Our guides Steve and Ben were so patient and encouraging with us throughout the hike. It was physically and mentally challenging, but they made it enjoyable by making us laugh and checking our health. “Pole pole” they said. Word of advice? Stay hydrated, eat well, sleep, wear sunscreen, pee, and be prepared for any weather. Our porters were also awesome; we couldn’t have done it without them.

SAFARI
On the day of our safari, Deo met us in the morning and introduced us to our safari guide, Samuel. Samuel was very knowledgeable about the animals and the nature, and he always gave us plenty of time to stop for pictures.
We were lucky enough to see all of the Big Five animals on our 4-day safari. The safari Jeep was comfortable, and the top popped open so we could get a better view. We even managed to squeeze in a nap sometimes!
I would highly recommend this safari to anyone looking for an unforgettable wildlife experience.

A Memorable Safari with My Family!
5/5

My husband, daughter, and I had a truly great time on our last family safari vacation. Unlike how most people do their safaris, we decided to start ours in the afternoon and drove to Lake Manyara National Park for an evening game drive. The park was just so quiet and beautiful. Our driver (Collins) even drove us to the hot springs because it was something I really wanted to see.
 
After the game drive, we headed to Karatu and lodged at Farm of Dreams. The lodge was nice and cozy. Delicious food. Friendly staff. Just the perfect place to relax and unwind from a safari. My daughter even made new friends for the short time we spent in the lodge.
 
At 5:30 am the next day, we headed to Ngorongoro for an early morning game drive, as Deo suggested. Well, he was right. We got to see loads of animals, but the highlight of our trip to this park was when Collins got a hint from his fellow guide, who had spotted a rhino. He then rushed to that exact location, and OMG, that was the best safari moment EVER!
 
After all that game driving in the crater, we had brunch and headed back to Farm of Dreams, where we spent the rest of the day swimming and just having a great time. I even got to become friends with the lodge manager and owner (Irene); she’s just amazing!
 
We then checked out the following afternoon and slowly drove to Tarangire National Park for our last holiday game drive. Now, this park is so special to me. It brought back memories of when I was a little girl and how my dad used to drive us there. I even remember getting chased by a bull elephant on one occasion (one of the scariest days of my life)! Men, Tarangire will always be a special place for me.
 
After our evening game drive, we headed to Arusha and ended our almost 3-day safari.
 
Thank you, Deo, Collins, and all the Goldfinch Adventures family, for making this holiday special, magical, and memorable for my husband, daughter, and me.
 
Looking forward to the next one

My First African Safari
5/5

I had a wonderful safari! Isaac showed me all the animals I wanted to see. I will never forget this experience. From the day I was picked up at the Tulia Boutique hotel to four days later, I had the best time of my life. Book your safaris with Goldfinch Adventures; you won’t regret it!

Amazing Safari
5/5

Goldfinch Adventures made all the arrangements for our safari, and everything went smoothly. Our guide, James, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about the animals and the area, and he was very patient with us. We were able to see all of the animals we wanted to see. Book with this company, you won’t regret it.
