A fantastic experience. We booked 6 full days, but fortunately for us one day was cancelled (we hiked up Kilimandscharo instead), because it's hard to spend more than 5 days in the jeep just sitting all the time. Nice thing is to combine different parks, because the scenery is so different and it brings variety in the experience. Ngorongoro was unbearably our favorite. Don't miss it, especially if you are travelling with children. The concentration of different animal types is really high, so you'd probably see as many on one day as anywhere else on 2 or 3.
Our guide was just great, he spotted with bare eyes the animals we could hardly see through binoculars! A real professional! We were spending nights in the tent camps, and if you choose this option don't expect much hygiene in the washrooms... But the personnel there is friendly and the general atmosphere very amicable. We had one rainy day out of 6, it was tolerable. If it rained all the time, it would have been a really bad experience. I wouldn't recommend a safari during the rain season.

Visit to Selous with "Smile with us Tours in Africa"
We booked a three day safari in Selous Game Reserve with a two night stay at the Africa Safari Lodge with "Smile with us Tours in Africa". The tour was perfectly in line with the description on Safari Bookings and we really enjoyed the safari! Jacob (the tour operator) was very responsive and flexible when planning the safari. He and his team were also super supportive in obtaining a Tanzanian visa (which is not easy for Ethiopian citizens).

It was surreal being in the animals natural habitat
I absolutely would recommend Twin Adventures for a safari. Our guide Zinga was very friendly with great energy. I had a lot of questions about the life in Tanzania and he was more than happy to answer all my questions. Staying at the Africa Safari Selous camp was so much fun. The Maasai boys were so funny and so full of energy. The whole staff there was super friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very clean, spacious and it had a very authentic feel. The rooms are each their own individual huts and as soon as you step out of your room you are surrounded by monkeys. The food was very selective (so if you are a picky eater please bring snacks) but it was very tasty.
The bush walk with Simba was super funny and full of knowledge about the trees and he taught us the way of life of the bush people. I told him it was my birthday and after he taught us how to make fire, he sang me happy birthday while we skipped around the fire. It was a great way to start my actual birthday that morning.
The safari itself was so surreal. The selous is very green and dense. It feels very adventurous because you really have to search for the animals. I wished I saw more of an abundance of each animal but I knew that would be hard since its not an open field. But I'm happy that we got to see all the animals we wished to see.
Again doing the safari with Twin Adventures was really great and I recommend them to anyone.

OUTSTANDING ORGANISATION AND FAST RESPONSE
Our visit in TANZANIA , I mean , MIKUMI Park Safari and Zanzibar Island was prepared with the outstanding support of MWANGAZA SAFARI.
All transfers, attraction entrances, ferry tickets to Zanzibar, hotels and tours suggestions were done in a very professional way by them. Since the time of journey preparation and during it, we have been oriented by MWANGAZA SAFARI with prompt response and clear guide lines. They are reliable professionals indeed .

Tanzania Roadside Expeditions best decision
We did the 4 day, 3 night safari. Our guide was Ezekiel. He was amazing. I can’t say enough about him. Very knowledgeable and informative. We were able to see all the animals we came for ( lions, giraffes, elephants, hyenas, water buffaloes, black rhino etc). The weather was a bit off with rain during the Serengeti, but made a few good stories also! Food was actually the best on the safari than our remainder of the trip on Zanzibar. The team at the Kudo camp were the best... great bunch of guys and made the tent camp. Over all I would say that this tour company took great pride in what they delivered and would highly recommend. We did view other company guides while on our safari and on several occasions noted that they’re guides often seemed to be just going through the drill and not really engaging with their clients. As I said before, Ezekiel was engaged with us from the time we met him and we thoroughly loved the time we spent with. Paul, the manager was excellent to deal with and allowed us to stop over to buy some tanzanite on route to our accommodation.
Thanks again Roadside, you are the best.

Unforgettable trip, highly recommended!
We went on a budget (camping) 7-day safari tour to Lake Manyara, Lake Natron, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Eyasi.
It was a really unforgettable trip, with a great mixture of incredible landscapes, awe-inspiring animal sightings, and even a touch of culture shock with the Hadzebe bushmen around Lake Eyasi.
Mr Jalala is a trustworthy and meticulous organiser, he was very responsive and available to help, even to arrange extra transport and logistics that did not bring any money to him personally. He negotiated with us a very reasonable price and assigned us a nice team of driver (Peter) and cook (Mike). Both were fun, knowledgeable, and went out of their way to make our trip really enjoyable.
The accommodation was in basic but clean camps with helpful staff. The highlight was the camp at Lake Natron, I'll never forget the incredible view over the lake and the expanse plain at sunrise.

3 days in Tanzania Safari Tour
The 3-days Tour was provided by Kilimanjaroi Vikings. A little scary in the beginning the voyage turned to be very nice on its way further. Upon arrival to Kilimanjaro Airport we started from visit to Kilimanjaro view place. That was good and quality hotel. Personnel was friendly and responsive. That's where we met with manager, reciedved instuctions about upcoming days and paid all cash in advance. Untill morning I was fighting a thought of being played. In the morning next day a driver and the manager showed up and all my worries disappeared. Vehicle was good (Land Cruiser) and a driver looked professional. In his credit he'd already prepared water and mealboxes. So, within next 3 days we visited Taranguire NP, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara NP. We stayed in good hotels with friendly personnel. Especially good was Ngorongoro Farm House. That place was mindblowing just must-see one. The driver was just as good in giving the tour information, organizing meals. Despite the drive was quite long we totally forgot about any inconveniance.
Bottomline: I totally recommed Kilimnanjaro Vikings for Safari Tours.

A unique and memorable experience
A unique and memorable experience. A fantastic guide. We saw the big five less than 3 meters away (except for the rhino that was farther away). It was fantastic
We really enjoyed the gampling, quality facilities, very clean, friendly staff. The jeep was good, but it was not comfortable, the routes do not help, the paths have many holes. We really liked our guide, Goog Living, made this experience 5 stars

We went on the 3 night 4 day Safari to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. From start to finish it was an amazing experience - we were picked up at the airport in Arusha and went straight onto the safari. Our driver Florian was great - very knowledgeable and a good chat. We saw plenty of animals, including leopards, rhinos, lions so close you could touch them and many, many elephants. The chef prepared delicious food everyday, and overnight stays in tents in the Serengeti and on the edge of the Ngorongoro crater were a highlight - wild hyenas and water buffalo were roaming between the tents in the night!
