Thomas was absolutely amazing, very knowledgeable, patient, friendly and good sense of humour. Also very good driver, felt safe with him at all times. The rooms at the hotel and the lodge were very nice. Packed lunch from the hotel in Arusha, absolutely amazing.

This safari I can promise you will be one of the best things you do in your life!!! All the people organising are very professional and very friendly and approachable so if you have a problem you can just message them. And they respond very quickly which is a thumbs up 👍
The safari contained ALL the big five the list they put down is 100% you will see most if not all the animals listed jackals wilderbeasts lions, zebras elephants etc.
Camping as well is an amazing experience as well and again the people are very friendly they make sure you feel at home in these camps. With food and traditional dancing as well included as well to keep everyone entertained. There facilities are running perfectly they have toilets and showers so you don’t need to worry about that.
Mack is very professional he helped out with the booking process and when I had questions he would answer the email very fast. Which I very much appreciated.
So what are you waiting for book this safari NOW!!! I promise you, you won’t regret it.
I highly recommend everyone doing this.
And also you get to see different landscapes as well including the animals so that’s a bonus as well.

It was a really good experience since the beginning of the Safari. Our guide called Laurien was all time taking care of us and explaining each time the main information of lake Manyara, ngorongoro and tarangire. He is driving safely and at the same time looking for animals to inform us in order to take pictures. He was very patient and he spent as time as we needed to take photos.
We booked Fanaka Lodge and the installation was very good, WiFi worked, the room was clean, the food was amazing and people that work there are nice.
I recommend Kiliholidays Tours & Safaris because thanks to Mack and Laurien we enjoyed our Safari in Tanzania

"Tremendous Value Safari with knowledgable Guide"
Our Guide, Thomas was extremely knowledgeable. He spotted a leopard in a tree branch 25 meters off the road that no one else could see. The 3 parks we journeyed to were incredible. We will never be able to go to a Zoo again. We saw Lions mating, so many elephants, wildebeest, giraffe, hippos, baboons, a rhino, lions, flamingos..the list goes on. Even an eagle in a nest high on top of a tree over an overlook.

"A fabulous Big Four and a half in Ngorongoro Cratera !"
Fabulous wildlife observations with an excellent and qualified guide, a friendly tanzanian man !
A fabulous Big Four and a half in Ngorongoro Cratera :
1. Many Elephants
+ 1. Plenty of Buffalos
+ 1. three Lions eating a gnou
+1 Rhino running in the cratera
+0.5 Cheetah resting in high grass
equals to Big 4.5 !
More than 100 animals (Giraffes, Hipos, Gnous,Zebras, Monkeys, Thomson Antilopes, Impalas, Elands, ....) around Manyara Lake and many different species in Tarangyre with a python in the river and a secretary bird "looking for its boss".
The Lodge was good for accommodation and evening meals and we must thank we thank the whole team for its kindness, its friendship, its professionalism and for the warm welcome.

We had a private trip, this was really nice. Stivin knew where to drive for the animals we like. He also took time to arrange our trip after the safari.

"Great safari and a good lodge"
De driving in the landrover was an adventure. De driver drives very well and tell interrelated things about the animals. Thomas knows the good spots. We saw 8 lions in a tree. It was amazing.
Also the elephants walking behind our landrover. In the lodge we could swim. It was a lovely place.

"3 wonderfull days"
Serengeti is the best park for seeing elefants and girafs. Ngorongoro is "l'arche de noe". Manyara le paradis des oiseaux. thank you very much to Agostino our guide who do his best for us.

"Excellent tour to see the Great Migration"
They have the best option to see the Great Migration. They fly you into the furthest part of the Serengeti to the Mara River, which is the best place to see it. There isn't enough time to drive all the way there unless you book a much longer (more expensive) trip. So it works out better value. Highly recommend this package.
The accommodation is excellent. Guide was great at finding where the animals were and pointing them out. Everything handled very well.

"Family safari with a 17 month baby"
Our guide thomas was very attentive to our need and really good to spot games.
We saw the big five and much more! it was a super experience

"Amazing experience, totally recommended "
Everything was better than expected, both guides (Paul on the Kenyan side and Thomas in Tanzania) were very good drivers, with a lot of experience, they were telling us a lot of interesting data about the animals we saw, and it was amazing to come that close to the animals and watch its behaviour, as they usually completely ignore the car with us inside.
The accommodations were surprisingly better than expected, with very good beds where you can rest after a long day with a lot of excitement. The food was also very good, variating every day the main courses.
Also Mack was answering my questions very fast before going to the safari, and he organised everything perfectly.
Definitely we recommend the safari with them.

"Ask for Hussein - perfect guide"
within 5 days we have seen the big 5, Hussein changed our route as we asked and we got it done. He tried to entertain us and never giving up to find a special view to the Serengeti (he was driving me arround for hours for a tree-picture - sure he will never forget) - all the best for you Hussein

"Immer wieder gerne!!!"
Alles! Bereits im Vorfeld war Mack super hilfreich und allzeit erreichbar. Wir verschoben nach Buchung noch einmal den Zeitraum - kein Problem. Dann hatten wir bei der Überweisung zunächst Probleme - Mack half zeitnah und super nett nach. Auch auf alle Fragen kam prompt und ausführlich eine Rückmeldung.
Die Safari an sich hat genau unseren Vorstellungen entsprochen und war ein Erlebnis. Unser Koch David hat jeden Tag 3mal lecker für uns gezaubert. Julius, unser Guide, hat mit seiner ruhigen und wahnsinnig netten Art uns viel gezeigt und viel mit uns gelacht. Sein Wissen ist beachtlich. Auch die Führung durchs Village war toll und informativ. Bei einer solchen "Low-Budget-Safari" kann man natürlich keine 5-Sterne Lodge erwarten. Nichtsdestotrotz wurden die Toiletten und Duschen auf den Campingplätzen täglich mindestens 1mal pickobello geputzt. Und Zelten in der Serengeti oder am Crater mit Tierbesuchen und unter diesem wahnsinnigen Sternenhimmel ist ein absolutes Highlight. Wir würden nicht nur immer wieder eine Safari machen, sondern auch mit diesem Anbieter und mit Julius.
