The most extraordinary safari!
Overall rating

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!

Wildlife-cum-birding Safari
Overall rating

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.

Park Selous is beautiful only agency and terrible guide
Overall rating

The Selous Park is beautiful. And so many of our dibrtch memories from Tanzania. Afebxha was waiting for us by changing the number of employees in the contract. It was only after our intervention that she confessed to guilty and we received a compensation. The guide himself gave me that this job did not suit him and we were so tired with each other these few days.

A great wildlife experience. We saw more animals than I expected
Overall rating

The company is a great low-budget option. The food was amazing, the car was good and we felt safe. They guide was friendly, but didn't tell us much about the animals and the environment. That is the only reason I give 4 stars and not five. I can really recommend this trip.

Best regards

Our safari was even more than we expected.
Overall rating

Our 6 day safari in January was with Kiliholidays. We were picked up at the airport with no problems by our guide Thomas. We were transferred to our pre safari hotel in Arusha, the Nego Bugg Hotel. Nego Bugg is a wonderful hotel with very nice rooms. However, the staff there are not very good about making you comfortable and welcome. We had no hot water and after trying to get help several times, someone finally came by to turn on the hot water switch which was located outside our room. Not one staff member mentioned this to us. As the evening moved along, we decided to have dinner at the restaurant but we had no idea where it was located because nobody showed us. After asking for help, we were shown to the restaurant in another building. Dinner was a mess, we ordered several times and our waitress came back to tell us it was not available. This happened three times. Finally we just told her to tell us what was available. She left to find out. When she returned, we were able to order with success. With no window screens, a plague of small flies forced us back to our room where we said we would take room service. TWO hours later, after many “only 5 more minutes “, food arrived cold and not looking like the restaurant pictures at all and no drinks that were ordered. It was hot in the room and air conditioning was needed and thankfully our room had a unit. After 45 minutes of fiddling with the remote, several calls to the front desk, new batteries in the remote, still no air conditioning. Another round of calls for help and finally a maintenance man came to look at our unit. He quickly turned on the wall switch near the bathroom and, tadaaaa, we had cooler air. Could nobody have shown us this earlier? We had many frustrations that day/night but all could have been resolved if we had been informed of the workings of our room in the beginning. Arrrrgh. The safari starts tomorrow and there is no way it could get worse . As a matter of fact, it was fantastic. Our first day was the Tarangire National Park. Next two days were in The Serengeti and our final drive was in the Ngorongoro Crater. Witnessing all the animals in these places was awe inspiring and an experience we will never forget. Thomas did his best to get us great views and many times closer to the animals than we ever expected. We could count the flies on the lioness ‘s nose we were so close. The safari lodge and tented camp arranged by Kiliholidays were both excellent and very accommodating. The tented camp was an exciting African experience and highly recommended. The food was ample and very tasty. Overall, despite our start, our adventure on this safari was unique and memorable. We would recommend you make this adventure a reality and we do not hesitate to recommend Kiliholidays. Thanks also to Safaribookings for their help.

Life changing
Overall rating

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!
Overall rating

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.
