I have just finished amazing 10 days of safari in Tanzanya.This was my first safari experience in Africa! Everything was wonderful, much better than what I expected! The tour was very well organized by Friendship African Adventures Safaris agency.The tours to Serengeti, Ngorogoro, Lake Manyara and Ndutu were really an experience of a lifetime! Thanks to Michael it was even a better experience. My driver and guide Michael was brilliant, this man is a legend. Michael has a lot of knowledge, excellent English, very friendly and took care of everything what I needed! At first I would like to say thank him for his personal qualities: responsibility, courtesy, extraordinary intelligence and readiness ,secondly for his high qualifications such as preparedness, extensive knowledge and rich experience. Best experience and the best tour guide Michael!I would highly recommend Friendship Adventure agency and specifically Michael to anyone looking to have an unforgettable trip!

The most eye-opening and life-changing experience I’ve ever had.
Overall rating

I’m writing this review many years late. But my appreciation for Tanzania, the people I met there, and the wildlife is still a driving force in my life. I went in 2012 and my tour guide on this safari was Loth Kornelio and his team. They were absolutely incredible—they had extensive knowledge of the land and wildlife, were so kind, and gave us all memories we’ll cherish forever. I’m so grateful for them and their hard work—I hope to go back some day!

An Awesome Experience Worth Repeating
Overall rating

Did a 3D/2N "Camping Safari" that was arranged through Swahili Paradise Tours & Safaris. From start to finish it was an easy process and pleasant experience dealing with everyone from Jimmy to Mashaka, Juma (Driver) and Paul (Chef who made sure we had some very tasty meals).
Visiting Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater has to be one of the world's premium safari experiences and doing it with a company like Paradise Tour is a must. IMHO, everything on this safari was beyond my expectations from the accommodations, weather, food, scenery and wildlife (except not spotting a leopard). Tanzania should definitely be high on any traveler's list. I know it will always be for me and I am looking forward to returning and exploring more of what Tanzania has to offer.

A respite from quarantine
Overall rating

After a few months of restrictions of our normal activities, we decided to return to our favorite destination, Tanzania.
We have traveled with African Big Cats in the past and would not consider traveling with any other tour company. Emanuel assisted us in arranging a unique itinerary allowing us to experience new locations. He assured us of the precautions being taken by the country and his company regarding Covid. We saw wash stations, use of hand sanitizers, and sanitizing in all the accommodations and parks. It was a perfect time to experience the parks with so few tourists, and with Emanuel's exceptional guidance. For us to return to Tanzania at this time was the perfect antidote to the restrictions of our daily life. A wonderful break from this "new Normal."
Asante sans, Emanuel

Serengeti - more to see and experience than your memory can handle...
Overall rating

We had a great four-day mid-range safari with excellent lodges and a professional yet very easygoing guide.
He taught us a lot about wildlife and nature, knew the places very well and took the extra mile for several long drives extending the schedule we booked. Besides he was avery fun guy to have around and was always eager to adjust the trip to our preferences and wishes. Highly recommended!

Perfect safari
Overall rating

We booked the safari a week before our departure in March 2020. Very good contact with Nelson. When we got to Arusha, the taxi was waiting for us. We slept the first night in the Nelson hotel. We were able to leave our suitcase with Nelson during our 4 day safari. We did the 4-day tent safari with our driver Balthazar. We were delighted with our safari. We recommend Nelson 100%! We would like to thank him and Balthazar again. We hope to be able to return very soon. Take care of yourself !

Greetings from Belgium

Better than we hoped for - people, food, wildlife were all Awesome!!!!!!
Overall rating

This was a great experience for our family. Booking the trip had a lot of changes from my end and it was all accommodated with no problems. Our safari guide was excellent, once he knew we were into birds he pointed out so many that we would not have seen. The lodges were all great - food, people, rooms - Wow!! Thanks for making this a trip we will remember forever and will definitely recommend!!

Wildlife experience of a lifetime
Overall rating

We booked a three day safari with Afrizone Kingdom Safaris. The safari itself included two nights of camping and all meals on the trip. This was part of our honeymoon trip. The scenery couldn't the have been better and the wildlife was way beyond our expectations. The camp sites, though rustic enough safely provided for all needs. And wildlife was never far from us. Safari food was authentically regional and excellent. Best of all, Mandela, our guide was fantastic, helpful, friendly, accomodating and extremely knowledgeable about everything we encountered on the trip.
