Dream African experience
Overall rating

My wife and I had an excellent experience once again. It was our third visit to Tanzania. Although it was not the best time of year for game viewing, it was a great time to experience the Rufiji river in all its greatness. The bush was lush and green and beautiful to see.
What a great experience.

The wildlife is amazing and the people are friendly
Overall rating

Our tour was made with Soul of Tanzania, which fits perfectly. Our guide asked me what was important for our trip and then made sure that we checked off everything on the list. Wildebeest/Zebra migration is inspiring, the hippopotamuses are ugly but amazing, the giraffes are regal, the elephants are awe inspiring, the lions and their cubs up close and personal was totally unexpected, the leopards and cheetahs were beautiful, the hyenas are interesting and the flamingos in Ngorogoro crater can be seen for miles there are so many. We finished our tour with a good sighting of a black rhino standing in a field.
Our first night at Lake Manyara, my wife woke up in the morning and Zebras were standing right outside our window and she was thrilled.

Wild but safe
Overall rating

Tanzania, nestled in East Africa, beckons travelers with its diverse landscapes, rich culture, and extraordinary wildlife. Home to the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, and the mesmerizing Serengeti National Park, where the Great Migration unfolds, Tanzania offers unparalleled experiences for adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike.

Serengeti great, ngonrongoro even better
Overall rating

We did a 4 day safari with SafariSoles and our great guide Raymond. Just us in the 4x4.
All the accommodation was clean and well looked after. It's important to note that in Serengeti you shouldn't expect luxury westernised hotels. Lodges and camps are exactly that. The staff are unfailingly polite and helpful.
The food is freshly prepared but simple. Don't expect loads of options.
We stayed at Serengeti Lodge, Sero tented camp and Rhino Lodge. Great and different experiences. You will hear the wildlife very close by.
We were lucky to see the big 5. You need luck but it helps if your guide is knowledgeable as ours was. The serengeti is vast, the ngonrongoro crater is absolutely amazing.
Breathtaking scenery looking down at the crater. The scenery at Rhino Lodge was good too.
The weather was hot but we were always comfortable. No issues with mosquitoes, tsetse flies were annoying in one zone but only temporarily.
Met a few Masai when stopping for lunch.

Worthy of being the first choice for an African visit
Overall rating

Tanzania is one of Africa’s main centres for wildlife safaris and from our short experience it deserves to be on everyone’s list. We went in February and there was plenty of wildlife and the weather wasn’t too hot.

The parks manage the influx of tourists well and the guides make every effort to minimise their presence on the wildlife. The safaris are supported by a variety of accommodation allowing choice based on price and facilities.

The people are welcoming, friendly and have an unexpected proficiency in the English language. At no time did we have concerns for our personal safety.

Tanzania has everything for a pleasurable experience and definitely imparts the desire to return.

Really good day out, just a couple of adaptions to make the day great
Overall rating

The price was great for what was included. The day started a bit sour for us though. Collected at 5am, for a 6:30am flight to be told we was on a 09:30am flight. We had to sit and wait for hours. No clear instruction at the airport. They also confiscate all bug spray which we wasn’t informed of which was quite stressful as we wanted to protect from mosquitos. Once we boarded the plane it was a pleasure from start to finish. So many animals at Mikumi and so many babies. Would 10/10 recommend. Just wished our collection time matched our actual flight time especially as we had a flight at midnight back to London it just made us more exhausted than we needed to be. 10/10 lunch at Mikumi though!! Arguably best food we’d had in Tanzania
