An amazing experience. Mountaineering, Safari and Beach in a single trip.
Overall rating

Wildlife in Tanzania is overwhelming. Weather was not that good, with floods and long power cuts. Accommodations quite good, not so the lunch boxes during the Safari. Same food for six days. Transportation and guide excellent. It was worth it overall.

Amazing beautifull experience
Overall rating

Definetely worth to go in november, it is not so crowdy there are plenty of animals and big five too. I was impressed by the travel servis, they are soo helpfull and caring. Weather was just perfect, no rain at all. Prepare yourself for long hours in the car, the roads are bumpy. I highly recomend to take binoculars to admire sleeping cheetah on the branch or birds from long distans.

Exceeded expectations of what I thought I’d see
Overall rating

Tour guide was great but was given a different itinerary to what I’d agreed with from the booking company.
So double check with guide before starting the tour.
The accommodation, vehicle and guide were really good , but there was obviously a small disconnect between the tour booking company and the guide company they contacted to.

Also had some issues with the international banking transfers when paying the booking company and we ended up paying an extra $500 AUD than we should have , so be careful with that. The booking company said the transfer hadn’t gone through but our banks said it had. So some robust discussions were had .
However the safari itself was amazing and I’d highly recommend going to see Tanzania.

An overall great Experience
Overall rating

I was overall really happy with my safari and definitely want to come back some day!
We had some fantastic cat sightings in the serengeti; some lovely elephant, giraffe, monkey action in Tarangire ( turned to be my favourite park from this trip (beautiful Baobab trees and wildlife!) as the migration at that time was not yet back in the part of serengeti where we were the big herds are not really there; you will still have great sightings but just take that into consideration what time of the year you go.
Weather was solid; accomodation was either tent or in a very pretty bungalow. Great food(!) & great guides. The only slight critique point i had was that you change the people in your car quite a bit, I had expected to be in the same group for the whole trip; maybe that was due to low season though.
From my experience I would increase my time in tarangire next time and maybe (if you have to choose and can´t do all the NP)- skip lake manyara NP as the others were a bit more exciting. This is a personal preference though.

Great experience
Overall rating

We had a good mix of game drive and cultural experience on our safari. We had lodged run by former street kids, run by Masai and also more luxury in some tented camps and less luxury but great vibes in tented camps in the Serengeti.
The food was good but almost everywhere the same. Our guide Christopher was the owner of a little safari tour company. He was well educated, learned us a lot of things about Tanzania, it’s people and wildlife.
We even saw the big migration in the North. The only negative thing was the very long drives; even when the scenery is overwhelming, 6 to 8 hours in a car is too long...
but overall a great experience!!

The safari was a fun experience but communication was difficult.
Overall rating

Overall experience was nice, food was average, tour guide was knowledgeable. A variety of experiences was challenges but was rewarding. The most difficult time was the beginning process with making final payment and change in safari package which caused an extra day stay. This was inconvenient and conflicted with other schedules. There was no insurance, warning of roads and safety. Driving up the mountain with no guard rails and the driver was driving fast and sometimes cloudy and raining.

Absolutely wonderful and enjoyable
Overall rating

I thought the safari was great and seeing so many animals was wonderful. Camp Bastion was nice although it would have been nice to have a bit more free time there so we could use the pool and have a relax.
The only negative is that it is a long drive- nothing can be done about this but it was tiring.

What a regret to have chosen Hello Tanzania. Amazing country though
Overall rating

Last minute free lance guide not aware of the plan, angry at hello Tanzania the whole trip. So not in good mood to show us the beauty. Dirty and old 4x4. Permits to national parks not done on time. 3 activities cancelled on 6 because permits were not done. Had to argue with Sylwia and SAlum during the whole trip. 2 weeks of mails and complaints after our return to get refund. We finally received the due amount. Unprofessional company, giving fake excuses. I would say almost a fraud. This company should not be listed on your website. I saw after our trip so many bad comments on trip advisor, half of them were deleted. Just a pity to have trusted this company named hello Tanzania .

Amazing journey through Tanzania tresors
Overall rating

With Kiliholidays safari, we went for a 3-day trip in Mikumi and udzungwa. In mikumi, we didn't have the chance to see the lions but seeing the elephant was great. The driver and guide was very nice and welcoming. I definitly recommend Camp Bastian for hosting in the region : great meals, great service and very nice rooms.

A Tanzanian Safari should be on everybody's bucket list. Not to be missed.
Overall rating

Went to the Selous Nature Park and stayed at the Serena Mivomu River Lodge flying from and back to a hotel in Zanzibar. Every part of this trip was expertly arranged. The flight was in a single prop plane landing on a dirt strip - an experience on it's own! The lodge was built in a way that was sympathetic to the landscape at plant life but came with a five star amenities and service. As many game drives or boat trip as you chose were available and all were with very informative guides. The food was great and plentiful with a dated printed menu for each meal. The weather in August was very pleasant as it is not too hot.
