An amazing trip - once in a lifetime experience!
Tanzania is an amazing place to go on safari - has a wide range of wildlife and so many different types of scenery. Serengeti provides opportunities to see so many lions, cheetahs and leopards. Ngorongoro Crater is incredible with its views, such a beautiful place! The accommodations in Tanzania are good and the food is tasty. Tented camps in Serengeti provide comfortable accommodation whilst still being able to enjoy the sounds of the wildlife.

Elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, wildebeest and so many more
My husband and I were in Tanzania for 1 week. The primary focus of our trip was a 6 day safari. We went to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area/Crater, Serengeti National Park (2 days), and Lake Manyara National Park. We really enjoyed them all with the exception of Lake Manyara. In comparison to the other areas, it did not have as much wildlife. Tarangire had the most elephants. We saw two black rhinos from a distance while at Ngorongoro and while in the Serengeti we saw many lions, cheetahs, and two leopards. The wildebeest migration was more than I expected! I never knew there would be so many hippos! That was a surprise. There were also so many other animals and birds, which just made the trip.
The weather was fantastic. I was concerned that there would still be a lot of rain since we were arriving at the end of May. It only rained one of the nights we stayed overnight in the Serengeti and it really didn't impact our visit at all.
We stayed in lodges most nights, but while in the Serengeti we stayed in a tented camp and that was definitely a great experience. It brought us much closer to the wildlife. Everywhere we stayed was good to Excellent. There were a couple of places that were somewhat unusual to get to, but were definitely worth it once we arrived -Morona Hills Lodge and Escarpment Luxury Lodge; though Morona Hills Lodge didn't have enough hot water for showers.
If I changed anything about our trip, I would add another day to our time in the Serengeti and not do the day in Lake Manyara.

Tanzania is amazing. We went to Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Lake Mayara on May, 2019. These places are so beautiful, the landscape and the animals that we saw were incredible. We saw 4 of the big 5, unfortunately the leopard is very difficult to see. The roads outside the parks are very good and the hotels are also very comfortable and clean. May is rainy season so the parks weren't crowded of tourists.
The only thing that wasn't that great was the fog on the crater rim because of the rainy season. Also, the roads on the crater rim were moody so it was a difficult ride to our hotel in the rim.

Fantastic Safari experience
Our safari was an incredible experience. I think we were very fortunate with the weather, as we traveled during the rainy season. We did not experience any issue with rain, in fact only had one shower of about 20 minutes during any of our game drives. Roads were a bit muddy, but really not bad.
We had the amazing opportunity to see all of the Big 5 - and many more! Our driver was amazing. He managed to get us the best views of the best animals! We got to see a mama cheetah and her cubs - 2 different sets of them in 2 different parks.
The accommodations were top notch! The beds at each location were great! More than I can say for many places I have stayed. Every thing was clean and the staff were most helpful and hospitable. .
Tanzania is a beautiful country.

Trip of a lifetime
The Safari experience was the best part of the trip. William was a wonderful guide and with us through our entire 3 nt/4day tour. The cabins were nice, food was great and hospitality wonderful. Also has a tour of the river and the local village which was awesome. Would highly recommend this totally affordable and unforgettable experience. Thank you from the five of us!

Suricata Safari is the best
Ten day Safari with Suricata Safaris. Our guide, Floridi, was the best, best animal tracker, best sense of humor, best patience with us. We saw the big ten animals, up close and easy to photograph. The landscape was beautiful, the accommodation and food perfect on our Safari. We just wish it was longer. Then five days in Nungwi, Zanzibar. Swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, spice farm tours and lots of beach walking. Tanzania has it all. Friendly, helpful people too.

Seamless adventures were great
Samless adventures were great
Before we got there they tailor made a safari for my party including picking up and dropping off at the airport, kept in touch with me through my booking and were polite and helpful throughout, even when I asked for the certificates from their tour company.
They organised really good lodges for us to stay in.
Our guide, Kisali, was amazing, really polite, enthusiastic, really knowledgeable about not only animal but plant life too. Was able to spot animals from a distance and really patient with us all.
All in all had one a really great and amazing time in Tanzania thanks to Samless adventures.

We had a great time in Tanzania! Highlights would definitely be the Safari. It was exhilarating to see the animals in their habitat. This was truly an experience for us, as obviously this is not available to us in Canada. Our guide was excellent - he was knowledgeable and made every effort to make our Safari experience memorable in trying to see as many animals as possible despite the rainy condition of the day. Our trek back from Mikumi was a challenge, due to to the traffic jam we encountered. However, our guide got us back to our hotel safe and sound. We would recommend Selous Explorer to others travelling to Dar Es Salaam. Thank you!

Tanzania is exactly what I dreamed it would be like
Being at the Serengeti and Ngorogoro crater were spectacular. The most amazing animal experience ever. These places deliver in every safari fantasy I’ve had. Having a driver and tour made the experience relaxing to just enjoy the scenery. My group was small with 6. Less is ideal since everyone will have different opinions on how long to stay at each sight. I had too little time with some animals.
