Overall rating

we saw all big 5 and thousands of other animals and birds, amazing landscapes; could not see cheetahs due to severe rains. overall, we had an excellent once in a life time experience. if the safari truck could be newer with more comfortable seats and quick windows opening, that would be great. the road to Serengeti is rather unpaved with lot of dust - a facial mask for dust protection is a must. the safari driver was awesome and new a lot about the animals and how to track them, as well had skills to drive in rural areas and muddy roads after the rain. the severe rains were rather unexpected for December and got us limited to see some animals or fully enjoy the parks. the roads to the luxury lodges were rather rural, it was very challenging to getting it and out, especially during and after the rain. the lodges were unbelievable, truly unique. Sopa lodge needs improvements for food and dining area, if you could avoid it until then.

The guide was amazing!
Overall rating

We used Meru Safari, but we were sent to some campsites. Meru Safari itselt did not seem to tour for us, but other groups did it. We met this guide called Joseph, and he was amazing! He guided us very well, and at the same time, he was very fun! There was only one memory we had laughed a lot during the safari. And a chef was really good at cooking! I had already experienced game drives before, so Serengetti was not that impressive, but Ngorongoro was awesome. It was like a heaven. We could see a lot of animals in one place with beautiful weather.

Serengeti Shall Never Die - Completely Justified
Overall rating

Tanzania name itself has some vibes. Its worth to visit as it gave me a life time experience. I have been to Serengeti national park along with my wife in the month of December, 2019. I stayed over night in Arusha before we head to Serengeti which is 5 to 6 hours travel by road.

Serengeti national park is worth visiting place to experience wild life. Staying in bushes will be life time experience. I got chance to see big 5 five and other animals too. Serengeti has many picnic spots along with hot water facilities and washrooms.

I used Afrozone Kingdom Safaris for my safari trip. Manager Mr. Adam, a polite man who picked me up from Airport and had been in touch with me through out my safari trip. He has got helpful staff to make trip hassle free. I strongly encourage Afrozone Kingdom Safaris to plan your Tanzania trip.

6 days safari
Overall rating

We did a 6 days custom camping safari (first timers) with Shemeji and it was as good as expected. All parks are amazing (landscapes and animals including birds) but 6 days was a bit too long.

All the safari companies seem to follow the same book for the food, tents and sometimes game circuits. So your guide/driver and car will be the main difference. Our driver/guide was very experienced, knowledgeable, nice and profesional. The car was in good condition. The food was delicious and they accommodated vegetarian meals. Our tent/bed was probably one of the best around. Campsites were ok considering the amount of people.

We chose to spend more time en the Serengeti (4d) and 2 in Tarangire and Ngrongoro as we needed the time to reach northern Serengeti (which ended up being my favorite) . In retrospective just pick one of the itineraries from their website.

Ngorongoro is a great day safari if you want too see almost al animals including lions. In mid October was raining and the visibility was so so.

Tarangire is gorgeous I loved the trees. If you don’t care too much about cats go there ( we saw a cheetah though)

Serengeti is worth all the dust you will get to reach to it...but if I you can afford it... Just fly to central and go from there. We did see the migration but no river crossing. The Mara section is gorgeous.

An unforgetable trip
Overall rating

The accomodations were too budget, with a rat running between our legs while we were eating dinner.
Also too late dinner.
The scenery was perfect.
Transportation fine. The guide new a lot about the animals and places. He was kind and funny. A good guy!
Breakfast should have been served every day, and not at 1.30 in the afternoon. We needed more clearly what time to eat lunch and dinner. Lunch could have been served in bags on our trip.

We booked on safaribooking .com to Swahili Paradise budget tour for 3 friends December 2019 from Turkey . Before tour we were not sure what is waiting to us in Tanzania but we are very very lucky for book Swahili Paradise tour . Everything went similar what we talked and planned before . They took us from Kilimanjaro airport to our hotel and we stayed 1 night in Arusha next day safari begin and our guide was Steward . He is one of the best , not less but more . He is really excellent with his job . He knows every corner every side of Tarangeri Ngorongoro and especially in Serengeti . He was finding animals maybe with smelling :) but he is very talented to find animals really we couldnt understand how can he both drive and finding animals together . He is really the best if had this much fun its thanks to Steward and Swahili Paradise tour . Also our chef Mohammad wad really best . He dis the best with hard conditions. He alwyas asked us what we want and he did the best for us . Special thanks to Steward and Mohammed , they did our tour best .
