A beautiful desolate environment, we got to see cheetahs hunting in action here! An unbelievable experience.

Visited in March of 2020 with Afrozone Kingdom Safaris. The endless plains of the Serengatti are a must see. Wildlife sightseeing at a scale that can only be appreciated on location. I dont know how one could imagine millions of gnous (wildebeasts) without being there. Abundance of lions. But to me, the highlight of this part of the safari was the sighting of a leopard which is also a rare opportunity. Not to overlook, between the Serengatti and Ngorongoro parks are the Masaii villages. Excellent cultural experience.

Not many animals and bad roads. Beautiful nature though.

If you love to photograph wildlife this is the place to be

An amazing place to see wildlife and scenery that can change so quickly from one area to the next. We went in September/October and the temperature was around 30°C and not uncomfortable when travelling in a 4x4. As there were four of us it was not too bad to get some good positions for taking photos. More than this, the harder it will be to position yourself to get those shots.

We stayed at the Serengeti Serena Lodge which was very pleasant. The food and accommodation was good although you do not spend that much time in your hotel. There was also a swimming pool which was another positive.

Our guide Ahmad was brilliant. He had great knowledge regarding the animals and areas we visited. His listened to what we wanted to do as well as giving us great advice. He helped make our holiday a great experience.

We also visited Lake Manyara National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Each environment we visited was different but special in its own way. We found the Tanzanian people to be very friendly and loved English football!

We saw so many animals including the big five and most of the small five.

Be prepared for tipping hotel staff and your guide at the end of your trip. Make sure you have adequate American dollars in small notes. If you need Tanzanian shillings these can be obtained from an ATM. We got ours at the airport. This is useful for villages and markets.

If you visit a Masai village you will be charged an entrance fee. However you will be allowed to take unlimited photos. Be aware that they will show you gifts to purchase after the tour. If you can try to visit a local market as it is an amazing experience. Photos of people are difficult as they expect payment in return.

All in all I would highly recommend. This was a holiday of a lifetime.

One very important note. There are toilets at the entrances to the parks we visited and at the picnic grounds. They were well maintained.

Serengeti National Park represents the African imaginary. It is the best place to experience the African wildlife spirit. It was a wonderful moment.

Our favorite part- definitely the bush vibe we were expecting coming into Tanzania. Huge park with lots to see- many diverse animals and landscapes. Loved seeing all of the rock formations while driving around looking for lions. We got close to many different cats (lions, leopards, cheetahs), saw many baby animals, and were lucky enough to spot a serval cat! Great place to see a ton of wildlife without seeing too many other cars- making for some great photos!

Accommodations at the tented camp were fun. The place is so vast, we often felt like we were the only people there, except for the time we were looking at a leopard. Seems like everyone in the whole park was at that place at that time. But seeing a leopard is amazing!
we were also able to see lion and cheetah and lots of herd animals... wildebeest, hartebeest, zebra, gazelle, impala, waterbuck, and eland.

I visited Tanzania and did safari experience with Johnson. I was with family and we had a great time!

We took precision air from Dar es Salaam to Arusha. We met Johnson at the airport and started our safari. Johnson drove us around spotting animals including the big 5 (zebras, elephants, lion, cheetah, leopard, rhino). We stayed at the lodge in the camp site - it is safe and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
