Amazing nature
Overall rating

Tanzania is beautiful country with amazing nature. I had big luck, that I see almost all animals what I would like to see already on first day in Tarangire national park. Big thank you to Shiri Adventures for organizing my safari trip and especially to Ibra. His professionality, knowledge and perfect sight made my experience of Safari awesome.
In case you would attend several parks like me, let Serengeti as the last one. Any of other parks cannot bit comparable with Serengeti.
After Safari I went to Zanzibar to relax. Nungwi and Kendra beaches are most beautiful with incredible blue water.
Generally Tanzania is amazing, with tasty food and nice people, when you accepted fact that on most tourist places you will be chased to buy everything :)

First Safari and we couldn't be happier
Overall rating

We had no idea what to expect because it was our first time, but it turned out fantastic! We chose Nyerere National Park because it was close to Dar Es Salaam and we didn't want to fly to Arusha or elsewhere, though the road took longer than expected because on the way there, a Prime Minister stopped to inspect something, causing the entire road to be closed, and on the way back, passing the airport, it was time for a President to arrive. So it appears that we did not only see wild animals! But, speaking of Nyerere, we liked how big it is, we only encountered other people a couple of times. Its landscape is very diverse, with bush, savannah, and rivers interspersed. We saw elephants, giraffes, hippos, crocs, impalas, numerous birds, and two lions. We only saw zebras once and from a great distance. Overall, we couldn't be happier. The organization and accommodations is decent and the food was delicious. We appreciated our driver's daring in finding and spotting the animals. It was a real game!

Worth your time and effort
Overall rating

We were a family of three, staying at Selous Ngawala camp, and had a very pleasant experience. Well, the pool was not in use and beer was not always super cold, but anyway what can you expect - you are not in 5 star establishment but a million stars - just check out the sky in the darkness of African countryside. Thanks for the camp staff for their good and friendly service!

What was especially fun was that the two-night safari allowed us to have the board ride on the first evening (my wife's absolute favourite was the weaving bird nests!), then full day of driving inside the park (supported by the packed lunch) and walk with Didi on the departure morning. Pretty good and diverse so I do recommend you to take some time instead of rushing in and out.

Accommodation was exactly what we expected - good quality bungalow which made us fell like we indeed are on safari and not on a beach or city. The driver who "hosted" us for these three days was super friendly with patience of an elephant - which we saw eleven of on the other side of the Rufiji river just before reaching the gate when returning, and then 1+3 from the camp in the evening while dining. Quite exquisite I must say.

Friendly people, beautiful nature, tourism still in its beginning, rather expensive though
Overall rating

We did a 6 day safari in Nyerere National Park and Mikumi NP. Very recommendable, as these are not ovrcrowded. One jeep close to many animals, not the other way around. Mafia island is a perfect place to relax and go diving, after a safari.

Best country for Safari
Overall rating

Serengeti is by far the best place for safari. The abundance of wildlife is amazing. People are kind & friendly. Flights from Dar Es Salaam to Kilimanjaro or Arusha or Zanzibar were frequent even during low season. The national parks were very well maintained & at the same time haven't lost their authenticity.

3 days safari. We are tired but happy to see all this animals. Good contact, good organization. If you want to spend less days, I advise Ngorongoro.
