Huge wildlife, need at least 5 days
We took a 4 day trip to Tanznia to Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro national parks. We took a trip with Savanah explorers with a tour guide Geofrey and ir was excelent. The guide knew everything about the animals, very qualified. However, I recomend to take 5 or 6 days for safari, it will be worth it. It is more worth to take a longer sfaro, but less expensive accomodation.

A wild experience
Tanzania is the perfect travel destination, with the parks and safaris, Mt Kilimanjaro, the beauty and history of stone town and the stunning beaches and marine life in Zanzibar. It ticks all the boxes.

A surreal experience
Tanzania, including the mainland, is a natural beauty. The Ngorongoro Crater was such a surreal experience, especially climbing the mountains and seeing the landscape in its entirety was a tear-jerking moment. We were fortunate to see the big 7, however, the male lions were elusive. Interactions with people were to be expected in a poverty stricken country. Overall amazing.

Did a 3 day fly-in safari from Arusha. I think fly-in worked out great, we probably avoided a 7 hour drive on rough roads in one stretch (we drove back, but in 3 days).
Wildlife was great. Caught Big 5 and a hunt. Rhino was hard to find, still caught a couple.
We visited Serengeti and Ngorongoro, both were mainly open areas with few trees. We also visited Lake Manyara which was a thick forest where we saw different types of monkeys and birds.
We were also able catch a part of the Great Migration just south of Serengeti, which was a wonderful sight.
I used safaribookings.com to get quotes from multiple companies. They followed up to ensure the companies responded.
We ended up using Soul of Tanzania, which was a great choice. The pricing was broken down clearly and they were very flexible with accommodation options.
They also provided hot lunches including wine set up with a nice table and all and small taste of Tanzanian food (most others we saw were box lunches).
Guide was excellent. Overall a great experience.

A dream comes true, unforgettable
Our journey in Tanzania was simply perfect. All the accomodations were cool, the nature is amazing and wildlife is incredible. Everything is super organized and it's like a dream, the best trip ever. People are very kind, and with your travel you can support local business. You have the opportunity to see all the big 5, and watch wildlife in their natural habitat. It's a unique experience in a lifetime.

Amazing wild life and nice people
This is my second time in Tanzania, arrived to Dar es Salaam. I stayed outside city centre for 1 night, Blackwood hotel is quaint little 5 star hotel which was comfortable after a long flight! My experience was positive from landing, took an airport taxi and he was our go to driver through our whole stay. Very nice, efficient and standard pricing that was agreed. Flew to Kilimanjaro to do the safari. Serengeti, Tarangire, lake Manyara and ngorongoro. The wildlife is amazing, we saw all the animals we wanted to see, Zebras, Antelopes, Lions, cheetah, giraffes, hippos, rhino, wildebeest, monkeys and elephants. Staying on campsite overnight was definitely an experience. The weather in December is hot and cool at night. Would also say Kilimanjaro Adventure Safari club Did an amazing job. There was a lot of travel between national parks but generally the roads were smooth only within the game parks which is expected. We stayed at a few lodges, all outstanding and a couple of hotels in Dar es Salaam which we’re comfortable. Most importantly, people were very polite and helpful which made Tanzania much more enjoyable.

We spent 4 nights in Tanzania and 4 nights in Zanzibar, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that it was the best trip of our lives. We got to experience the animals in the Serengeti in their natural habitat up close, sit on the blissful beaches of Zanzibar and feel so welcomed by the hospitable people and did not have to worry about a thing. We would definitely recommend Tanzania as a place everyone should go to at least once in their lifetime
