A Fantastic 2 day safari
I decided to go for a two days safari with Jiwe Adventures after completing the Kilimanjaro hike with them. I thought that after living such a wonderful experience Jiwe adventures would provide a similar experience with the safari and I was right. Our safari guide was amazed... as was I, that the first day revealed such a great variety of animals. Jiwe adventures is a well organized company with employees who respect their customers and see to their well being. I can't emphasize enough about the great experience and adventures I lived while in the hands of these people which I hold in high regards.

The most extraordinary safari!
We started our research for a safari in Tanzania on safaribookings. We asked for various quotes but it was Claws to Africa and the very reactive Fatuma that we selected. She immediately answered our questions and her advice helped us develop the most exceptional safari. We chose the 7-day package (Tarangire, Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Eyasi) while sleeping in the tent. Seeing several parks was a good idea because, for example in Tarangire, there are very large groups of elephants that have not been seen in other parks, just elephants in pairs or three. Our safari guide, Fasili had an excellent knowledge of the flora and fauna. He took the time to show us and explain each animal to us. He gave us time to observe through binoculars and take photos. Thanks to him, we could see the Big Five! Fasili had a very good intuition. We saw a Cheetah family and a giraffe family in the heart of the Serengeti, just for us before sharing the information with other 4x4s. It was really beautiful and unforgettable! We got caught up in the game of discovering animals in the savannah which is really not easy! We were fascinated by the several thousand wildebeest, zebras and gazelles with their babies in the plain between the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. Above all, you have to descend into the Crater. It is a wonderful experience and the only place to see rhinos. The weather was very very rainy during our stay. Driving on extremely muddy or completely flooded roads was really complicated but Fasili was a very careful driver, he knew his 4x4 perfectly and not once did we get bogged down. Despite these conditions which demanded a lot of attention, he showed us the animals in the savannah. And arriving at the camp, he pitched the tent for us !!! We loved the experience of sleeping in the tent especially when the buffaloes came to graze at the foot of the tent and the hyenas and the prowling lions! Absolutely guaranteed thrill! Our cook Sangua prepared excellent and hearty meals for us. Changing your kitchen every day requires good organization. The atmosphere was very nice on the camps. The two of us made sure that we had an unforgettable time and that always with a smile and a kind word. Thank you Vasili and Sangua! Highly recommended!

We are a group from Hong Kong joining the above safari organised by Savannah Explorers. The service provided from the very beginning of planning to the final execution is indeed efficient and well organised. All liaison matters were carried out through email with Albert who was quick to response and fulfil our request as far as possible. All accommodations and meals provided are up to our expected standard and beyond. Throughout the 10-day safari, the head guide Abdul and his team members Modi and Hamic placed everyone's safely and welfare as their priority. They have worked long hours daily to ensure we could meet and encounter animals and birds that we're interested. We all felt indebted to their excellent services and profound wildlife knowledge.

EarthLife tours, Deo and Agrey were amazing. Our safari was nothing our wildest dreams could have ever imagined. To experience first hand the symbiotic relationship of the circle of life was beyond our wildest dreams. Our guide was so knowledgeable, kind and patient. We have memories for a life time and none of our world travels compare to our experience in Tanzania. We are looking forward to returning soon! Thank you! We hope the life that’s there remains preserved and out of human greed...

Wonderful experience in Mikumi!
My friend and I booked 2 day safari in Mikumi with Tanzania Mwangaza Safaris & Tours. We were very satisfied with the organizator's communication and willingness to help with whatever, our driver, out guide and how trip was organized in general. We started our trip in Dar Es Saalam where our driver picked us up at 3 AM to go to Mikumi. We went in the middle of the night so that we don't loose much time on traveling to the park, which was a great idea. Our driver was the best (i think his name was Osman), very kind, caring, talkative and helpful, we had a great time driving with him. Car was comfortable and filled with water and food for our journey.
Our safari experience was also amazing. We saw a lot of wildlife - zebras, impalas, giraffes, shackles, elephants and even lioness with her cubs. Our driver was very kind and helpful and observant toward the animals and didn't want to do anything to disturb them (like approaching lions very close) and we were very satisfied with his approach that way.
Our vehicle could be a little better, but we still managed to see a lot of this. Out accommodation was really nice and charming, our only critique goes to the food in restaurant which wasn't very good, especially for vegetarians.
But other than that, our safari was almost perfect and I would wholeheartedly recommend Tanzania Mwangaza Safaris & Tours to everyone.
