One of the most amazing experiences in my life, wildlife was incredible!
Overall rating

I have dreamed of going to the Serengeti since I was 5 years old (I turned 70 the week before the safari). Incredibly, the whole experience was better then I expected or even hoped. We saw more than 50 lions, hundreds of elephants of all ages, from babies 3 or 4 months old to the full grown matriarchs of the herd, a leopard, multiple cheetahs and the wildebeest migration, with tens of thousands of wildebeest all around us. I am a birder so was also thrilled to see ostrich and several secretary birds as well as an array of hawks, rollers bee eaters and other colorful birds.
In Ngorongoro Crater we also saw 3 rhinos, completing the "big 5" as well as numerous other birds and mammals.

I should also give a shout out to Focus in Africa, the tour operator. We had an excellent guide who knew birds as well as the mammals, an incredible cook and comfortable tents and guest houses. Everything was very well organized and ran smoothly, communication was good and everyone on the tour professed to enjoy it immensely.

The feeling of wideness of this nature cannot be captured in pictures but is an experience that you have to absorb on the spot. The diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures is mind blowing and will be imbedded in your memory for ever. The difference between the "modern" world and the reality of nature is worth the trip.
The political decision to punish poaching extremely severely is a revolutunary changer and the effect is visible. During the game drives fantastic amounts of animals were noted and the animals gave the impression that humans were not considered as potential treads.
It was likewise encouraging the notice how little trash was left in the nature.
The people met were very friendly and providing an welcoming atmosphere without fear for robbery and danger.
Tanzanian people have understood that the benefices of tourism can only be ensured on the long run by mutual respect for nature and visitors.
Tanzania has so many interesting sites that it would be impossible to concentrate on it. My advice based on several trips in several African countries: take your time, don't rush to cover all the popular sites in your trip and tick boxes, rather let the beauty of this country and it's natural treasures get under your skin. Akuna matata should be the moto.

Mikumi National Park was amazingly beautiful with great opportunities to view the various wildlife. Our guide, Godfrey, was very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Kihondo Travel.

I loved the parks of Serengeti, Ngorongroro, and my favourite, Kilimanjara! Tanzania has a lot of beautiful national parks, great servic, friendly people, and I also felt safe there. I had no issues with security. I am very happy with visiting Tanzania, and I will come again one day in the future.

our experience in Tanzania was above and beyond our expectations
Overall rating

It was a privilege to be on Safari in Tanzania. The organization of our Safari left nothing untouched so we were free to focus on the extreme beauty of the animals, countryside, places we stayed and the people we met. The Tanzanians who were responsible for making our adventure 5 star were attentive, kind, caring, engaged with their jobs and some of the nicest people we have ever met. Every place we stayed the meals were well thought out and frankly very delicious, this included the picnic lunches in a variety of picnic areas.
I think I didn't quite believe how prolific the wild life would be. Our Safari guide from Wayfarer, was tenacious in making sure we saw the Big Five, but also other more allusive animals such as leopards and cheetahs- we saw 84 lions on our 8 day safari, many of which were cubs. We felt his commitment to wanting our adventure to be the best! The twigas or giraffes were there in all their splendor with many babies as well. It was quite unbelievable at times the impact of being in Tanzania, on Safari, had on us.

Beautiful country with wonderful people
Overall rating

Its a big country, get ready to drive a lot on often bumpy roads. The animal encounters are not as close up as in other African countries. The people are very kind. Food is good and all the lodges we
Visited were excellent. Clean rooms, friendly staff and good food.
The Serengeti is a must and so the Ngorongoro Krater.

Safari Operator - Seregenti Smile
Guide - Zakaria

I decided to book Safari in Tanzania order to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday and I couldn't have been more happy about my decision. Some of the key highlights during our Safari was definitely the wild cats, giraffe, stay in tents inside Serengeti park, local fruits and the kind people.
Tanzania is easily one of our top vacations as there are lots to see and explore.

I would like to thank our Safari Operator and especially the guide to make our vacation a memorable one.
