Tanzania safari - Best safari experience in Africa

I am just back home after 7 days safari in Tanzania -16 to 22 August!!
We started our safari adventure many months before, preparing a great genuine experience for a group of 19 persons. Noah delivered a tailor-made safari tour for Tanzania, including Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongo, for all these destinations we got ones of the best accommodation lodges (Sopa, Serena, Simba).
The rangers / drivers picked us up from Kilimajaro airport at 1 a.m. and we started the great adventure throughout Tanzanian best savannah, just next day in the morning.
We’ve been very well introduced within the animal’s world; the drivers looked carefully for all type of animals we could find in each reservation. We saw hundreds of wildebeest, lots of elephants, cheetahs, leopard, hippos, hundreds of zebras and lots lots of lions. We also saw buffalo, many kinds of birds, including pelicans, flamingos, many families of baboons, blue monkey, etc. watching their daily routine. Besides these, I personally enjoyed giraffes, which we could spot them especially in Tarangire and Serengeti, but also, along side the road between different reservations.
Many lions we saw in Serengeti, much more than I ever expected, I just cant count them…
All these thousands of animal viewed in one of the best savannah landscapes, were absolutely delightful.
Drivers were very kind, polite and helpful; they were punctual every morning, having the jeeps kept in perfect state, the fridge in the car was constantly filled with still water, so that we could refresh ourselves anytime. They provided with various information about the wildlife (food, habits, hunting, reproducing, etc) and choose the best routes to find animals, nothing was too much for them to bring us the animals at our feet.
Most of the lunches we had were picnic lunch, some of the places chosen for this were charming, with nice view and having all basic facilities.
As I mentioned above, all lodges were perfectly located in the middle of savannah, having breathtaking views over the parks, crater or lake, depends on the location we were in. Very good service during accommodation, well appointed rooms, with all amenities, including self coffee & tea facilities, very spacious, with large outside terraces giving you the feeling you are in the middle of wilderness but, also, safely. They all have nice swimming pools and dinner entertainment with local dancers. Every evening we got to the lodges, I assisted the best sunsets I ever had (I love sunsets).
As a conclusion: games drive were excellent; our drivers / rangers – Hamza, Peter, Ayubu – were professional, attentive, communicative and knowledgeable; accommodation – Serena Lodge, Sopa Lodge and Simba Lodge – just perfect
Although I had a similar experience in Kenya in 2014, and South Africa in 2011, Tanzania safari din year was a great adventure, most of it because of good appointment and coordination of this tour for 19 people!!!

Thank you!

I was during the month of August 2016 with a group of 19 people in Tanzania for 7 days and 5 in Zanzibar. In mainland we covered Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. I am an experienced person in safari and traveller (visited > 85 countries), so I have the skills, experience and awarness to issue qualifications :) . The drivers we had (Hamza, Ayubu & Peter) were great! The cars were almost new, very well maintained and cleaned during the all period. The lodgies we choosed I knew already the brands from other countries where I did safari so I knew what to expect: but ... all was beyond expectations if I compare the brand Sopa, Simba and Serena with those from Kenya .. for instance.
Everything was delivered by Noah Kuti- one of the managers & owners from Widebeestdafaris Ltd as agreed. The drivers were flexible and it was not easy to deal with the 19 people at once - but everyone was happy in the end and they got home with life time memories.
I fully & with no refrain recommend Wildebeestsafaris for safari in Tanzania. Moreover, I saw that they do now business in Uganda and Ethiopia and for sure I will use them for other groups or to send people there.

Happy travel! :)

Excellent Support

Wildebeest Safaris has been very responsive & they can tailor made the program to our requirements. The guides in both Kenya & Tanzania are very friendly & experienced. They know where to go & look for the Big 5 & every other rare animals & birds in each of the parks. In Tanzania at Serengeti Park the guide was able to locate a Leopard from the stress calls of the Tapas Monkeys. We were very lucky to see the Wildebeest Migration, live kill by Cheetahs. I am very much satisfied on the service provided by them.

Like a dream

My son, who is 12, and I travelled to Kenya in July and August 2016. I was very overwhelmed trying to decide on a tour operator for Kenya. But then I found Wildebeest Safaris LTD. Noah Kuti got in contact with me immediately. He answered all my questions, no matter how dumb. Payment was easy too. When we arrived, we had a driver waiting to take us to our lovely hotel for the day. The next day, we met our guide for the week, Eustace. Eustace is amazing. He was professional, intelligent, kind and fun!

Africa has been a dream of mine since I was 10 years old. Wildebeest Safaris made this dream come true. Our vehicle was just like in Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Our lodging was perfect, actually it was better than we expected. And we saw the Big 5!

Amazing attention to detail and very responsive to all of my questions beforehand

It is hard to book a trip with an unknown company across the world (especially when there are so many to choose from!) Noah with Wildebeest made me feel comfortable, he was extremely responsive and personable. He provided me the driver's name and phone # in case I had any problems. Dennis was at the airport waiting for us with a sign with my name. From that moment on, we were their number one priority and that is all I could ever ask for.

Excellent. The tour was well organised. The tour guides were very informative, helpful and friendly.

The trip was an experience of a life time. Always wanted to visit Africa and see the big five!!!The service by wildebeest was excellent. It was a tailor made flexible trip according to our needs. All the tented accommodation was superb just what I wanted to experience. Only dark spot was the horrible roads to the masai mara and serengeti which was a night mare especially for medically unfit people. The tipping system was also very erratic and too frequent. The local cuisine was a treat. All in all highly recommended trip.

Great Safari

Dealing with Wildebeest safaris was an easy experience. I booked my 2 night 3 day safari last minute (the day before I went safari!). I negotiated a good lodge and price with Noah. I was nervous about doing a joining safari as you can't guarantee the other people or driver will be good. However all worked out well. The Driver (I forget his name) was excellent and got us close to the animals. Sadly only 3 of 5 of the big 5 were spotted. Overall it was an incredible experience!

Very good places and extraordinary guide

* Communication, very good
* Service; very good and sensitive to our needs
* Expectations: very good

The only suggestion will be that the last day of the tour (28Th) there was anything interesting on the agenda, and the sense was as loosing one complete day.
