We had a 2 night safari in Serengti from Mwanza organised by Friends of Africa. As a company they really care about organising the safari you want. Also they were very transparent about the costings which I felt was great. They organised a great place for us to stay, although I was rather far from Mwanza but then we did have the migrating wildebeast go straight past the camp!
Our driver Henry was professional and could find the animals (including lion, leopard and cheetah) and give us information on them, he also copied very well with some boggy conditions. I would say that the vehicle used was on the older side but it was reliable.
I could recommend more blankets (it was unseasonably cold when we were there) and mid morning tea and coffee would be an excellent addition.
We saw lots of animals, topped off by a pride of 20 lions
After much research we decided to use Friends of Africa family Safaris.Ms.Nice Simon of Friends of Africa family Safaris did an awesome job planning our two days safari to Serengeti from Mwanza. They were easy to work with via phone and email prior to travel. Everything was just as promised. The drivers were on time and very professional, going out of their way to accommodate our group. The hotel recommendations were excellent. Kati kati tented camp was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was exceptional. Serengeti is definitely the place to go if you only have a short time in Tanzania. We will do this trip again.

Im from from Canada and still working at Shirati Hospital, I booked Kenya and Tanzania safari for I & family with Friends of Africa Family Safaris, we did a 7 days tour with the guys! It really was an amazing tour especially Lake Naivasha, Masai mara and Serengeti! The lodges we stayed in were both unique, all staff so friendly! I wished i could have stayed longer and will definitely will come arrange it again! Highly recommended!!

In my search for a quality local tour operator, I was recommended Friends of Africa Family Safaris Ltd , the director of the company dealt with us directly and advice on putting together the perfect trip was brilliant. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and put together a 5 day safari that was one of the best things I have ever done! We went to Serengeti, the Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara . We saw everything! Our driver Amos was super friendly and a master at spotting animals. I recommend this company & staff to anyone !

I traveled Serengeti National Park on May2015 with Friends Of Africa Family Safaris Ltd.
We left Mwanza in the early morning on 25th heading to Serengeti and came back Mwanza on 27th evening. The journey was comfortable and I really enjoyed the tour because I could see lots of safari animals including big fives, Kobus, Zebras, hippos and crocodiles. I also enjoyed night camp on 25th. Tour guide was reliable, so I recommend this company if you looking for the tour company for Serengeti.
