Last minute magic

Mary and Planet Africa Safaris was able to organize a last minute safari for our group of six. We feel very lucky to have worked with them as the experience was ease, efficient, and exactly what we were looking for. We had a few changes as well that they responded to positively and quickly. Thee magic was how they listened, made suggestions, and tailored the most perfect trip with added pressure of a tight timeline. We will be back and with an even larger group!

Experienced recommendations and they handle everyting.

Fantastic from start to finish. Just couldn't be happier. We came up with an initial general idea of our interests and a time frame, and they took it from there. Fantastic safari experience of a lifetime. Thanks!

Tanzania Experience in Selous and Ruaha

The communication and booking procedure was excellent. All questions were answered immediately, good recommendations. Our tour (Roho ya Selous, Kwihala Ruaha, Jabali Ridge Ruaha) was organized perfectly, all arrangements worked out very well, we didn´ t have to take care of anything. Very good information and material concerning our individual tour. We can highly recommend this tour operator.

A great trip, wonderfully organized

Murielle and Nicole organized a fantastic trip for us in the Mara North Conservancy. He found the package that was exactly within our budget and time frame for travelling. Planet Africa Safari also provides a wonderful guide to planning for the trip so we knew what to bring, which vaccines were required, and even estimates of how much to tip all the wonderful staff at Mara Bush House. The tour and guide provided by the house was also amazing, we were able to see so much more than we expected. We will be definitely coming back again!

Attentive Team Helped Us Plan Best Family Trip Ever

Planet Africa absolutely nailed it. They worked closely with us to make sure they understood what we wanted to accomplish and to fit our budget. They explored different options and presented them to us to consider. They were able to tell us about each of the specific properties at which we stayed so we could make informed decisions. And then while we were in Kenya, everything was seamless - from our arrival at NBO, to multiple in-country flights, to our departure. Planet Africa made it incredibly easy.

Our trip was one of the best in our lives-fabulous guide, beautiful animals, lovely accommodations.

The safari MORE than met our expectations. The service was impeccable. It was delightful to feel so cared for by so many lovely people. Candlelight meals under the stars were above and beyond the "camping" experience we had expected. Our guide, Stanford took care of us in every situation including a bit of a confrontation with locals, and another situation in which we were stuck in the mud, quite near a female lion, also when others were hopelessly bogged down in the mud at nightfall, he pulled them out too. He was equipped for every situation and more than competent. Our lives were in his hands and I felt he was cautious and aware of our surroundings at all times, while at the same time bringing us close to the animals. He was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the animals, the land and the people. If by communication, you mean Willow, who handled our travel arrangements, she was endlessly patient in explaining and helping us decide where we wanted to go. Willow was away on maternity leave while we were on the safari itself, but Polly was incredibly helpful in rearranging our travel arrangements, when I had to leave and return to the US before our trip ended.

Travel is my and my wife's life, and this was the best trip we have ever taken..

Let me start by saying everything was blew away our expectations.. The communication, the fortitude, knowledge and care with Planet Africa Safari's was unbelievable.. I spoke to so many companies and they truely stood out from the first skype call I had. After speaking with Willow, she truly understood what my wife and I wanted our trip to be like, and it was not very generic. Every suggestion she made was spot on, she really got our vibe and simply nailed it. They even were able to make a camp (Manyara Ranch) stay open a few extra days so we could do horse back safari, talk about above and beyond. I would recommend everyone work with Planet Africa Safaris, it is a super enjoyable, informative, intimate, friendly and most importantly, not "touristy" experience, in a very pre fab / cookie cutter itinerary, touristy world of safari booking.

Outstanding Safari

I had dreamt of a safari like this since I was 10 and Planet Safari delivered! Everything was perfect - from planning discussions a year before which were personalized and attentive, through last minute hiccups from my end being sensitively and wisely handled, to a warm greeting at every place we stayed! The hotels and tented lodges were ideally located in beautiful natural settings. The interiors were tasteful and elegant while retaining the 'bush camp' feel. The food and service were great throughout. Our guide made the whole excursion an exciting adventure and gave us in depth insights into what we were seeing. He was attentive, knowledgeable, charming and efficient. Tanzania is a spectacular country and Planet Safari's team of professionals are dedicated to ensuring you have an outstanding vacation.

A wonderful and unforgettable honeymoon with Planet Africa Safaris

My wife and I used Planet Africa Safaris to book our honeymoon. From our initial inquiry with Planet Africa, the communication with Sophie and Leah was great. When we first contacted Planet Africa Safaris, we only had a basic idea of what we wanted to do & see on our safari in Tanzania. Planet Africa came up with some itineraries (at different pricing levels) for us to review and worked with us to make sure we were able to experience the safari we wanted. We felt that Planet Africa was upfront and honest with us (e.g. a certain place we wanted to stay was very nice, but in Planet Africa's opinion, not the best value), and this was very refreshing.

This was our first safari, so while we didn't know what to expect, but our expectations were quite high given the amount of money we were paying. We are happy to say that our expectations were exceeded! Our guide, Sadiq, was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and an overall good guy. Sadiq was a key reason why we had such an amazing experience.

The itinerary Planet Africa Safaris designed for us was excellent. The different types of accommodation we stayed in (B&Bs, luxury camps) were all nice experiences, each in their own way. The food we had at every place was nothing short of spectacular, and we received very personal attention & service everywhere we stayed.

We would not hesitate to book again with Planet Africa Safaris. They truly provided an unforgettable honeymoon experience for us.
