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
Overall rating
5/5

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.

The main purpose of my trip to Tanzania was climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. But since I had few days between my arrival in Tanzania and the start of the climb I decided to book a Safari. I picked three agencies through safaribooking and asked them to provide me an offer. The reservation and payment process was quick and easy. I arrived in Tanzania on February 2nd, it was the end of the rainy season and I was struck by the beauty of the landscapes around Kilimanjaro Airport, with a wonderful tropical forest. Unfortunately along the street which takes to Arusha there were dozens of slums and unpaved roads. Arush itself is nothing special at all, but it's the perfect starting point for any safari headed to NgoroNgoro and Serengeti. I had booked a four days group Safari to Serengeti and NgoroNgoro but as I was the only one willing to sleep in a Lodge I found my self alone with the Safari Guide/Driver. He was just amazing ! Serengeti it's simply unforgettable, pure magic, amazing wildlife and landscapes. The time of your life! NgoroNgoro didn't tell me much, but seen from aboveon the terrace located on the way down it's beautiful- The lodges I slept in were simply perfect, two nights inside Serengeti, with the Lions roaring during the night and amazing thunderstorms in the far distance. The food as well was always good, nothing special or typical from Tanzania, but absolutely okk !
But Kilimanjaro again was the time of my lifw!

Tanzania is so beautiful But Jiwe adventures exceeded all our expectations

My husband and I enjoyed a 9 day safari around Tanzania with Jiwe adventures with Kent as our guide, and if I could give a higher review than excellent, I would. From booking to pick up through drop off, the entire experience was higher level class. Kent has an encyclopedic knowledge of birds, animals and flora, including behaviors and habitats, which is my joy. He taught us so much about the wildlife of Tanzania, but also about the culture and people, which is very important to us when traveling. Our lunches, even in the Savannah and in the Migration, included tablecloths and wine and hot meals eaten around a portable table set up, versus boxed lunches, a memorable and very classy and appreciated touch. The tent camps were beautiful and well stocked with great food and lovely and comfortable accommodations.

My husband benefited greatly from Kent’s shared love of wildlife photography, so they were able to share tips and Kent could always find the best spots for angle and light. The photos are amazing as a result. An added benefit was Kent’s years of experience, which showed in finding the animals, knowing the routes, and having great communication and relationships with his colleagues to best share information for the benefit of all of the tourists. In general, Kent was laid back and engaging at once, able to read us immediately and figure out our pace and preferences from the outset. His driving (a vital part of the journey, as many of the roads were difficult to pass), was competent, confident and careful, allowing us to relax knowing we were in great hands.

Overall, Kent and Jiwe adventures went above and beyond to give us the most incredible experience in Tanzania. I would and will recommend them to everyone. Thank you!

Safari..10/10... accommodation/food.. poor
Overall rating
5/5

As far as Safaris go... fabulous. We saw the big 5 and most of them really close we almost could touch the animals So peaceful and beautiful

Excellent driver/guide

The accommodations .. another story. Very basic in comparison to Kenya
Spring lands Hotel is no more than a YMCA hostel in fact the first room we were given resembled a prison cell. The stench from the drain in the bathroom was like sewers. The second room was a slight improvement but we hardly slept. Not a good start to our trip that was not cheap. The second accommodation was an upgrade to coffee Lodge. Very nice. Serengeti Lodge was an upgrade but we had no hot water for 2 nights. It was also very cold. No attempt to give us hot water or keep us warm. No hot water bottles or lit fires
High field Hotel was like a cheap motel so complained and we were driven about 10 miles to Endora Lodge which was very nice
The upgrades that we had were what we would have expected anyway. The packed lunches were a disgrace. Full of carbodydrates I.e cake biscuits bread.. jam one day .. really? The occasional minute chicken drumstick and I mean minute. Hard boiled egg after eggs for breakfast .. hardly lunch We got children’s carton drinks a couple of times one being tamarind juice which was not to many people s taste
Very disappointed at this part

Amazing country!

The safari was amazing. Tanzania is a beautiful country. Zohar Safaris arranged a wonderful trip, with great food, accommodations and a very good driver. Seeing all the african animals in person was beyond expectations. Would totally recommend Tanzania as a travel destination for a once in a lifetime trip!
