African Overland is a great company. We were impressed right from the start of planning the safari. Our inquiries were handled promptly and this really impressed us. We have nothing but high praise for African overland. All their staff handled us graciously and with a lot of expertise. We were happy with our guide who was extremely knowledgeable. He took us to 3 parks and also gave cultural tour of Lake Eyasi. We can say again and again that we were given the best guide possible during our tour. Going on safari had been our dream for a long time, and we are happy African Overland fulfilled our long time wish.
Our stay included both mid-range and high end accommodation. Lake Burunge and Tanzania Bush Camps were our favourite. All in all, we can proudly say we had a high class safari at very affordable price. African Overland is indeed quality oriented and are experts at what they do – which is delivering epic Authentic African Safari. We would not hesitate to recommend a better safari company to choose for your trip in Tanzania. Thank you African Overland. Looking forward to have many more exiting safaris with you.

It was an experience like no other, thrilling and beautiful
The wildlife in Tanzania is amazing. We booked with Tanzania ROadside Expeditions and Paul was very helpful through out the planning and answering any questions we had. We were lucky enough to see the big 5 and got to see many animals up close. The accommodations were great, especially the tented camps. Being able to wake up and see the animals right outside or hear the lions roar at night is something you do not see or hear in other places. Unfortunately it started to rain when we were there so the roads in the parks were very muddy and were not able to go to all parts of the park we would have liked to go but, we cannot complain, it was incredible. Our guide Justin, aka JJ, was the best! He arranged our day so we would be able to see eveyrthing we wanted to see and also relax when we could since we were on our honeymoon. He knows so much of the animals and has an incredible eye. Since the grass was high, it was sometimes hard to spot the animals and he would see a leaf moving and knew something was there! He made our trip much better! It was the first time we were doing a safari and I really recommend Tanzania, you get to experience the whole thing and it will be an unforgettable trip.

A trully unique experience
checked first with 3 different safari tours for 8 days safari trip before choosing Zohar. Lilian was incredibly efficient in planning our tour from the day of arrival to the day of departure, with all the details you can think of, straight from the start. She was very attentional, checking on us every time if everything is meeting our expectations. The logistics, the accommodation where we stopped by in our tour were all beyond expectations (except for Ndutu Heritage camp , but it was acceptable for just one night). The lunch provided was warm and not in boxes like for most other travelers with other tour providers. David was our driver , a knowledgeable person, a pleasant companion and a skilled driver, paying attention to all the details, patient with us when we wanted to stop longer to take more pictures, excellent in finding animal spots. He was blessed by a new baby boy while he was with us on the trip and yet he was still committed to our trip until the moment he dropped us off in the airport.
The experience in Tarangire , Ndutu , Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater was simply unique and indescribable . The passion for wild animals is shared within my family , but seeing them alive was breathtaking, especially at 'zero distance'. it was so vibrantly real yet so unbelievable at the same time.
we were in the car everyday from 7:15am until 6:30pm and never felt the time passing by. despite the many hours the ride was very comfortable.
We loved our trip from A to Z including the local people we met . Overall Zohar tour was beyond expectations and i strongly recommend them to any adventure lovers. Be aware , it gets really dusty on the road , every day because of the off road drive. So make your plans for extra clothes. We were fortunate to spend 2 successive nights in one of the camp so we managed to do laundry. Otherwise , we were short of changes. Binoculars , and DLSRs with high zoom lenses are a must. If you can afford or rent telephoto lenses (minimum 300mm) , it is best. Some animals like leopards and Rhinos were very difficult to spot and very far from road tracks, this is when your gears make a difference. I'm lucky to travel with my family to many different places and to live different travel experiences, but this Safari is my best travel souvenir ever.

Safari organiser( Bestday Safaris) and guide ( Joseph) was great.
I feel, I got what expected.
Even weather was not so good.
Rainy season was already starting,

Accomadation was fine and food as well. Highly recommended!

Everything was amazing. We did 8 day safari Serengeti/ Ngorongoro. We had the best guide Nicky (Nickson), he was amazing, went above and beyond to see the amazing Leopard/cheetah and all the other wildlife. I would highly recommend Nicky as a guide. I can’t wait to go back!

Scenic Views of Ngorongoro crater
We did a day trip to the Ngorongoro crater and wished we could have stayed longer. The scenery was incredible, the crater is huge and filled with a lot of wildlife. We say 4 of the big 5 animals, although the rhino's were further away and wished we could have seen them closer. The transport was comfortable and we were able to have the roof open to see the animals. Unfortunately the rain came and the animals scattered. Muhammad, our driver was very accommodating, helping us find all the animals and stopping to let us watch them.
