At the end of the last June, I had a wonderful safari trip to Tanzania where I spent almost nine days. As it was scheduled, I visited Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire.
It was planned to spend three days in Serengeti to enjoy its endless plains with game viewing. I enjoyed the experience of watching the animals migration to Maasai Mara. During my Serengeti safari, I watched most of Serengeti National Park animals.
My whole safari trip was arranged by Tomodachi Safaris which is run by Mr. Thomas who took care of everything. Mr. Thomas is a cooperative and very helpful person. He is friendly, too. Thank you Mr. Thomas for your effort and its really appreciated. The trip was well arranged.
Finally, Tomodachi Safaris provided me a good safari car and a very skilful driver. Philip was my driver (and the guide) through my nine day trip. He is an informative person especially in the African wild life.

I recently completed a four day safari operated by Bushbuck, following a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro organized by Alpine Ascents. The group was comprised of 9 individuals and Bushbuck provided two vehicles and two guides. The guides were Daudi Majengo and Frank Haruna and we explored Tarangire Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.
I was very impressed with the knowledge exhibited by the two guides, whether it was with respect to the vegetation, the animals, birds or local history. They also had an impressive ability to find the locations of the different animals.
At all times Daudi and Frank were also friendly and responsive to our questions and concerns...they clearly exhibited a passion for their work and were intent on making the trip a memorable and informative experience for the members of our group.
We stayed overnight at Sopa lodges and the accommodation and food was excellent. We all greatly appreciated having our successful climb serenaded at the Tarangire Sopa lodge by the staff...this was one of the highlights of the trip to me.
I will not hesitate to recommend Bushbuck to anyone interested on embarking on a Safari.

We recently hired a land cruiser and driver from Fortes Car Hire in Arusha for six days to tour several of the major game parks of Northern Tanzania. Everything about this transaction worked out perfectly. Abel, our driver/ guide was most friendly, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about everything in the entire region. Abel was tireless in scouting for animals to see and ensuring that the vehicle was always in perfect condition. We can highly recommend Fortes. All our travel arrangements were made by way of long distance e-mails and everything (and more) was in place as promised upon our arrival in Arusha. If I had to redo this trip, I would rather have Fortes also make all our accommodation bookings. This excellent local company has all the contacts, is able to obtain significant discounts and does not “clip the ticket” as do many overseas based tour companies.

Me and my family have recently completed my 10 days journey including safari and beach with FANTASTIC SAFARIS at a good price. It was really fantastic and i saw all the big 5, My kids were taught and got very amazed about their nick names: Mr/Mrs.Angry (Buffalo), Mr/Mrs.King(Lion), Mr/Mrs.Fat (Elephant), Mr/Mrs. Shy (Leopard) and Mr/Mrs. Horn (Rhino). After our safari they flew us to Zanzibar and enjoyed beach holiday as well. The driver for both safari and beach were very knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend this company to anyone.

Ahsante tours was perfection!
Every request and detail of our safari was met by Ahsante tours; from airport pick up, to our safari, and transfers to Zanzibar - not a detail was missed. They are highly professional and make a trek to Tanzania easy. They are well established and respected in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania - and with good reason; they truly are amazing in all that they do. Our guide, Elvis, did an exceptional job of locating game, thus giving us the opportunity for incredible wildlife viewing. What a blessing he was.
We highly recommend them to anyone interested in travel to Tanzania. And, one additional highlight - they are reasonable! Not sure how they do it, but we certainly glad that they do :)
