"Beautiful family holiday"
I travelled to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with my two young children (aged 5 and 9). Rhino Explorer Tours ensured all our needs were taken good care of. Daniel, our guide, was available at all times to support us. All child-related needs were catered for. It was a perfect family holiday.

"Wonderful safari experience."
Safari experience was great. Everything was very basic but enough for the price. Our guide Freddie was nice so was our cook Roger. Beautiful parks. Nice group. We got to see the animals and did plenty of gamedrive.

"Do not use this company!"
Serengeti heritage camp and Kilimanjoa - both accommodation was fantastic and the staff were amazing. Wildlife was amazing.
from Hungary, September 2019
We spent a perfect week with our super driver Freddy and masterchef Rogers in Tanzania, the taxi was waiting for as at Kilimanjaro Airport and later also Daniel, the owner greeted us at the hotel, than we spent 5 days with another couple on safari, we spent the nights in the camps, the tent was OK, the camps have always beautiful panorama (they are although sometimes rather dirty...), our masterchef waited us every evening with fresh African dinner (very delicious always!). During the day we visited different national parks, in Serengeti we saw all the possible animals (Freddy is a talented driver we found sleeping lions, elephant families and lot of cheetahs in the early mornig and late afternoon hours), in Ngorongoro we only missed the rhino, but we saw the great migration at Mara river which is an unforgettable moment, we also enjoyed the Lake Manyara Park, the village nearby and the fig tree lodge is the nicest place with very welcoming staff. We enjoyed every moment, absolutely to recommend!! Asante sana, Daniel!

"Safari from Arusha to Serengeti and Ngorongoro"
We met Daniel and he gave us a background of what we will see.
He seemed a pleasant person and we trusted what he said.
However on the trip this was not exactly what happened.
from Germany, August 2019
"Excellent WIldlife and nice guide, equipment and food so so "
- very nice guide
- excellent sightings
from Saudi Arabia, August 2019
"Very bad experience"
I met with other couple of the same group by coincidence at a lodge in Northern Serengeti, they advised that Rhino were just cheating, the couple who were on honeymoon never asked for buying stuff or waking up late & this was Malaki's arrangement. Similarly, Malaki informed this couple that the pick delay came at my request.
On other side, I contacted Malaki after withdrawal from the group trip to contact Danial to confirm the balance due to Rhino since I did not pay any of the due amount from the very beginning, Malaki told the group that I am in contact with him asking to re-join the group since no other company accepted to arrange a trip for me. In addition, he sent me a video on WhatsApp of 2 lions hunting a Wildebeest as if he took this video during the trip to show me that I missed a lot due to my leave, Malaki did not notice that the car hood that appeared in the video had a logo other than Rhino's logo, which is indicating that the video was not taken by him at all.
Finally, Daniel contacted me during my stay in Tanzania threatening me that he will refer to the governmental authorities in order not to let me go out of Tanzania until I pay his money although he asked to pay through the website & the website delayed in sending the payment link. I left Tanzania on 21.08.2019 and remained in contact with him to pay his money. I paid him on 26.08.2019 and had the option not to pay him at all, but I finally paid him $861 as per his request from a moral perspective only.

"6 days North Tanzania experience"
It was an amazing tailor made tour. We managed to see all wild animals, in Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire national parks. The most amazing experience was the isolated non touristic Masai village. We had a real experience with the local tribe.
Josef was a great guide and driver, and Daniel a real professional to arrange our tour according to what we wanted to see.
Hakuna Matata till next time!

"I dont recomend you this company"
Intead the company the serengeti national park is very beatiful and patrick (the driver) is a very god professional.
from Australia, July 2019
It was well organised , we felt safe at all times , the guide and cook were very pleasant ..we saw most of the animals and the guide tried hard for us to see them all
from United States, July 2019
"Brilliant safari experience!"
Our driver / guide was David Simba. He was knowledgeable, experienced and excellent in educating us throughout the trip. He was well versed in both the flora and fauna - instructing us about nature / behaviour of the animals, birds, insects, reptiles and the trees / plants. He planned our schedule wisely, enabling us to witness some unusual sights (for example, breastfeeding baboons, a day old elephant learning to walk, etc). He was quite flexible and adjusted to our needs and requests.
His team mate Roger (our cook and stomach engineer) provided us delicious hot meals. At our request, he cooked local dishes such as ugali, chapati, chagga soup which we enjoyed very much. The boxed lunched could be improved - particularly the sandwiches and chicken fry. David and Roger worked well together and made the trip enjoyable for us.
Camping at Seronera and Simba camp sites will be an unforgettable experience.
from United States, July 2019
"Worth every penny"
Daniel wonderfully planned every detail of our safari, all we had to do was show up. He thought of it all and even had recommendations for day trips after our safari. Definitely will recommend him to anyone who wishes to take a safari.
from New Zealand, June 2019
"Good time "
The safari itself , the guide and cook
from Canada, March 2019
Able to see all of the big five and a lot of other animals as well. Plenty of water provided, good shelters, very friendly and inviting company.
from Romania, February 2019
"An unforgettable experience"
I liked very much the fact that we had the chance to see so many animals. I think we saw every type of animal that could be found in Serengeti and Ngorongoro area (including THE BIG FIVE). I didn't go for the comfort of a lodge (this is after all a budget safari), so, for me, these aspects didn't count so much. I was surprised to find out that the cooked food was delicious, although the conditions for the cooks are minimal (the lunchboxes - not so good) and the tents were more comfortable that I expected. The landscapes of Africa were amazing and the diversity of animals in both parks is overwhelming. Overall, for me, it was a child's dream come true.
from Canada, January 2019
"not worthy for what payment USD1,450 should have"
Safari at the location of parks such as Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, lake manyara and Tarageti Elephant park seems ok, the service of pick up and drop off at the Kilimanjaro airport is highly appreciated.
from Austria, January 2019
"Great way to experience a Safari"
Booked 5 days game drive in 4 different national parks/areas including famous Serengeti. Enjoyed every day, camping was good but surprisingly unprotected site in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, which again was an adventure. If you're open for cool adventures go for camping!! Nice small group and experienced guide, lovely food considering you're in the middle of nowhere.
from United States, December 2018
"Good Memeories of Tanzania"
From start to finish we had a great experience with Rhino Tours. Daniel was prompt and pleasant with all pre-tour correspondence so that we felt comfortable upon our arrival. Though we arrived in JRO several hours late due to a series of flight delays, we were met by a driver for an interesting and comfortable trip into Arusha. The Venice Hotel was new and well equipped plus had full service restaurant. Daniel met with us personally to go over the itinerary the day before we began our safari. Our safari ran smoothly with MANDELA as our guide and ACTION as the excellent and attentative cook. Mandela worked hard to see that we actually were able to see all of the Big Five and see the many animals in many settings--gathered around watering holes, alone in their habitat, early morning, late afternoon, etc. Mandela was an excellent driver as well. Daniel also accommodated our late check out from the Venice Hotel most smoothly and our return trip to JRO was as pleasant and welcome as our pick up had been. We are a couple in our mid seventies and Daniel worked hard at finding us comfortable and well equipped accommodations. We particularly loved the Lake Manyara Campsite with its infinity pool overlooking the Rift Valley--WOW! it was beautiful, restful, and memorable. Food, box lunches--all plentiful and tasty ---Action really worked hard to pamper us--loved the popcorn appetizer! We were left with great memories.
from Canada, December 2018
Overall, the trip was outstanding. Our guide (Michael) was very knowledgeable and accommodating, and our chef (Action) made delicious meals every time. We visited Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire on this trip, and all of the parks had unique features that made them worth the visit. While a day was probably sufficient for the latter three parks, I imagine you could spend weeks exploring in the Serengeti.
from Philippines, November 2018
I just wanted to say how Rhino Explorer Tours & Safaris was spectacular. David(the driver) and Daniel(host) were wonderful. David was a great driver and very knowledgeable. Rogers(Chef) made the best food! I would highly recommend them to anyone. The food was way better then I was expecting! I didn't know how much I actually liked Leek Soup! The accommodated my Grandma (almost 80) and my aunt with gluten free food.
from Germany, November 2018
"Hat alles geklappt "
David war ein sehr guter guid Essen war gut und es wurde alles eingehalten laut Programm. Perfekt.
from Netherlands, November 2018
Nice program but changed during the days as different parks (improvement) were selected. We have seen a lot of animals and the game drives were quite good organized. Lunchbox was great and dinner was OK but could have been a little bit more.
from Philippines, November 2018
"Great safari experience "
We had a great 2 day safari trip.
Daniel planned and explained everything to us the evening before we left Arusha. Everything was well organized and went very well. Our tourguide micheal was great, the group was nice, the tours were really worth the money. We stayed in panorama camp in little ugly bungalows, which was a very special extra, we didn’t expect before.
Thank you Daniel for this great 2 days!!
from Australia, November 2018
Our guide Salehe and our chef, which I didn't expect, we're very informative and friendly. The animals were amazing. The places we went fantastic. Accommodation good.
from Portugal, November 2018
"The most incredible experience in my life "
I liked everything. I was a little bit apprehensive with the reviews about the Camp sites And I was really afraid of wild animals to attack my tent, because actually the bush camp in not fenced. But everything went well. Sleeping in a tent surrounded by hienas, elephants, zebras, pumbaas, baboons, buffalos, gazelles and other things that we don’t even know the name is the most incredible and amazing experience I have in my life. And besides the amazing animals I saw during the day, the thing I will remember from 20 years now is sleeping in a not fenced bush camp with animals. You notice that the animals are there because you hear them surrounding the tent. I would advise to bring with you ear plugs, trouble sleeping pills and a really warm pijama for the night in Ngorongoro. Is very cold out there during the night. Another advise, the night that you are staying in the camp sites don’t drink water after 4pm, so you haven’t to go outside/toilets during the night. The driver was perfect, his name is Mohammed and I strongly recommend him.
from Mexico, October 2018
"An Unbelievable Week! "
We had such an amazing time on our safari! Abdul was the best guide! He was knowledgeable, easy to talk to, funny, nice and he had eyes like a hawk! Matthias was also a great cook! We never went hungry :). We had a great group of people and had so much fun. All the parks were so beautiful in different ways but the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater were exceptional! We are excited to come back one day and spend more time in both those parks.
Also - make sure to bring warm clothes for the crater! It is the coldest of all the areas we went!
from Switzerland, October 2018
Rhino Explorer did a very good job and we can only recommend it! Daniel as operator took good care of us and organised everything to our full satisfaction, Emanuel as tour guide did a perfect job and Benson as chief made very good food considering the circumstances. Be aware: This is a budget safari, so the campgrounds are very basic, but also a thrilling adventure: One night we had buffalos and lions next to our tent, but the guides took good care of us and that’s why we felt quite safe. If you rather feel the nature and pulse of wilderness than paying much money for more or less luxurious lodges, you just found the guys to book & go with! Moreover, you get the same safaris and animals to see (or even more - see above ;-) as people who book with expensive tour operations ...
Rhino Explorer is for us definitely the company to go with ..,
from Philippines, October 2018
"Unforgettable experience of Safari"
Excellent guide who knows everything about wildlife, and sees everything
from Germany, October 2018
"Amazing experience of wildlife"
The trip was pretty well organized in every detail. Daniel picked us up at the Airport in Arusha and made sure that we got all necessary information for our trip. He even took us to an ATM in the evening. If you want to have some beers on your trip, make sure to buy them in Arusha before as they are hard to find on the way and quite expensive. The Safari itself was such a great adventure! Our driver and cook were simply awesome. We saw so many animals during our game drives and the food was always delicious. On the last day in Ngorogoro Crater on our way back out of the crater we even saw the rhino! That completed the big 5 on our trip! :) As the nights get surprisingly cold in the tents, make sure to take some warm clothes with you and a headlight as the campsites of course don’t have that much light. All in all, this safari is really great value for money! Definitively recommend to join this adventure.

"Recommend to do"
The driver David is the best !!! He make the safari an amazing experience!!!
from Germany, October 2018
"Really good value for money for a short term safari"
- you'll see everything you wanted to see during these days;
- the road is not boring: they have several stops on the way for taking pictures and lunch;
- the guide is nice and responsible;
- the tour is well organised;
- good transfer and the hotel in Arusha;
- a fridge and sockets to charge devices are in the car...
Some more useful info (just to do not guess "what is going on now" :) :
- tour is organized by a guy who meets you in the hotel in Arusha. Transfer from and to an airport is organized by him with a local taxi. Also all activities in Arusha will be supported by him. You will meet your safari driver the next day after your arrival at the hotel reception. You will pick up a cook and some camp things on the way to Serengeti in a village;
- if you want to go to massai village to see the dance of masai and their life then prepare to donate 15$ from each person and maybe some more donations for kids there in a school and so on;
- beer for example in Serengeti costs around 5$ per bottle and there is lack of shops and bars there. So better to take something with you from Arusha;
- prepare tips for the safari (10$ * 3 days)*(driver/guide + cook) = 60$ (or more if you want) from each person
from Tanzania, October 2018
"Exceeding all my expectation"
The safari itself is excellent, and the guide gave a very thorough information on every animals I encountered. The food was superb and the camping sites are great. Communication with Daniel is easy and he made sure everything is comfortable even after the safari. I got some ear problem after the safari and he made sure I got into a healty center and get it fix. Great service!
from Great Britain, October 2018
"Amazing safari with incredible value for money"
This trip was incredible. Daniel was amazing - one of our group needed to catch a later flight at the last minute and he completely worked around us. He came up with a new schedule and didn’t charge us for the last minute changes. The driver Issah and the cook Mahmoud were welcoming and friendly. We had a fantastic safari and I really could not recommend this highly enough.
from Norway, October 2018
"Great value for money safari! "
Everything was great. We had some trouble with our car, but our driver turned out the Macgyver type and fixed it all so we could continue our safari. Great experience.
from United Arab Emirates, October 2018
"Good safari! Coordination needs improvement for solo clients"
The wildlife safari experiences and the people are really lovely and helpful. The camping equipment was provided and our cook and driver were good. Lodge accommodation was unexpected for a camping trip, but very welcome! Daniel is a really lovely guy and he will do his best to give you a great tour experience, as you can see from the reviews on this site so far.
from Belgium, October 2018
"Amazing safari for less money"
Our guide David and our cook Action were amazing. They made our experience better, and always did their best to make us happy. You see the same as everybody else, but for less money. The Jeep was great with open roof, enough space for the eight of us. We even got an upgrade for a hostel instead of a tent one of the nights. We will definitely recommend this experience to anybody who wants to have a full safari experience in Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

"Amazing adventure absolutely recommended!!!"
I booked two tours, one 8 days and one 7 days to maximise the time spent in the Serengeti and the area around (like Ngorongoro mainly).
The first tour was with Protus and his chef Fenna. Well what can I say? Both just did an amazing job!! Protus is a perfect tour guide, absolutely knowledgable about flora and fauna with 14 years of experience as a safari guide. A calm gentleman who is always focussed on making sure that his guests have a nice safari trip.
We saw all big five (even a rhino!), many many lions and even a leopard relaxing on the tree. And Protus even managed to show us thousands of migrating zebras and wildebeests which was a very special event!
Fenna was an amazing chef, all his meals were excellent, especially if you consider the limited facilities given in a camping site environment.
Tour number 2 was with David as a guide and his chef Jacob. There's not much I can add because tour number 2 was just as amazing as tour number 1! David is a great tour guide who found all the wildlife, he literally smells the animals! We saw many many lions and showed us the wildebeest migration at River Mara which was fantastic! He is always energetic and has lots of humour.
Jacob is a hell of a chef who provided many delicious meals (every meal he cooked). I can absolutely recommend this tour operator to anyone considering to go on a safari tour!

Everything was excellent. Daniel give us the best : organize our stay carefully and give us a very good team: David and Roger.
from Netherlands, August 2018
The 7 day safari was wonderful, because we had multiple days we not only had time to spot the animals but also have seen a lot of wild life action!
Everyday you get a very good breakfast lunch and dinner. Really delicious and plenty variation!
They are very flexible, we wanted to have our taxi to the airport a week later and that was no problem at al. And they even helped us with to find activities for the week after the safari!
Overall: really satisfied, and really good value for the money we spend!
from Great Britain, August 2018
"Very good quality/price"
Everything was great from the beginning, very serious company and very professionals. I absolutely recommend travelling with Rhino.
from Spain, August 2018
"An amazing experience in Tanzania "
The car was a monster that survive to bad dirty roads and we could easily open the roof to see the animals. Action made a very good hot food almost everyday. The Venice hotel food and acomodación was great to begin and finish the safari. David was a very funny guide that made the best to find as many big five animals as possible. Daniel was very friendly in all moment to answer emails and give info about the safari. The relation quality- price was absolutely great and these guys made an excellent job
from Spain, August 2018
"Amazing safari and amazing care"
Daniel, Hans (Driver) & Osman (Chef) took care of us all the time, making the great scenario even greater and sharing with us their living experiences. Daniel is a super profesional that provided us the best customer experience. Hans, what to say, it’s Hans :) and has an eye to catch up animals incredible. Osman is a real chef in the savanna and food after hours of safari was excellent.
Ah! Of course we liked to see all the big 5 and many more animals.

We loved the personal care provided by Daniel and Max, our guide and driver. Max’s knowledge of wildlife and his rapport with other guides was excellent. Our schedule was spot on, Max changed this to maximise our experience. Always listen to your guide. Brilliant.
from Switzerland, June 2018
We highly recommend this tour from Rhino.
Daniel did a great job organizing it and is very reliable. Given the kitchen standards on the camp sites, our chef cooked really good meals. We were also positively suprized by the standard of the hotel in Arusha.
The program had a great mix of national parks with different sceneries. Since we were able to see all Big 5 and many more animals, we were obviously very happy.
from Tanzania, June 2018
"Serengeti is the best safari"
We had a great driver Herman who worked hard to find us the animals and was always willing to go out of his way. The Serengeti is great - if time is short, or even if it isn't spend as much time as possible here.

"Excellent except for one thing- No working seat belts"
Guide-George was terrific. Friendly, informed and informative , safe driver, helpful. Three days of seeing animals in Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater was right for us. Cook was great- enough and very tasty.
from United States, May 2018
"It was like nothing else I’ve ever done. "
The journey through the parks was quite the adventure. Getting to be so close to the animals in the wild was a truly awe inspiring experience. The guides were great, I had David for the 1st day and Rocky for the others. The cooking done at the camps was very amazing considering being out in the middle of nowhere-it’s a logistical feet for sure. I liked the last night spent high up above the crater, it was very refreshing for the last night,as the facilities were pretty great with WiFi available and a nice indoor communal eating hall.
The crater was my favorite day- I feel most nothing can prepare you for what you will see there. Closest thing maybe could be to imagine entering into Jurassic Park.
Daniel is the manager of the operation, of sorts. He made sure to get me from my entry point to Arusha, and take me back out, and was in regular contact to make sure all was well and was happy to help and or offer to help when/where needed with local assistance/questions I may have had.
The hotel on either side of the safari was solid. The breakfast was decent. The staff were pleasant and attentive for whatever minimal requests I had.
Arusha is a bustling city, there’s lots of great bars and restaurants, (and even a brand new mall with a craft brewery and movie theater).
Laura Rebecca Tessmer
from Austria, May 2018

"An awesome trip"
Daniel is fast to answer your mails and gives you the information you need. He can be trusted and is a nice guy.
Our safari guide Mussa knew everything. You could point at a flower or animal and he could tell you tales about different aspects of it.
A great trip which gives you extreme value for money with Serengeti and Ungorogoro in a 3 day trip with better food than you should expect out on a cheap safaritrip

"Unforgettable Optimistic Safari in Tanzania"
The staff is very helpful from the first moment when they pick you up at the airport and take you to the hotel, it's all included. Daniel, the two Emanuel make you feel welcome from the first moment. The days are organized very well and with Pole-Pole mindset we did everything. We saw all the animals included on the safari, maybe we missed the Leopard but we saw two times Cheetahs. It was very nice and comfortable to sleep in a tent in the middle of Serengeti Park and at the top of Ngorongoro hills. The bathrooms were really acceptables to be in the middle of nowhere, hot water a few times.
John was always ready to not let us starve, so he cooked for us all the time during the Safari: morning, lunch and evening with super tasty and traditional dishes.
The guides in the Safari: John and Thomas made us feel very comfortable and welcome, they taught us a lot of new things and Kiswahili language too. Thomas was very friendly, has a great knowledge of life. A beautiful person to spend time with, forwarding is very nice and a Great Safari Explorer. Finally Andrew is a good mentor.
This experience was fantastic and will remain in our hearts forever. Maisha marefu.
from Germany, April 2018
"Nature at its best"
I can write a thousand of good words. But I like to keep it short: if you want to have a lifetime experience you have to go with Rhino Explorers. We have had five unforgetable days. Thank you for that.
Our guide Peter was very kind and answered a thousand questions we had. His knowledge about the animals and the environment was amazing.
from Kenya, March 2018

"highly recommended "
the charm of the people, the experience of the driver to find the animals, the fact that they pick you and take you to the airport, the flexibility to make changes and the constant attention to make you feel confortable, specially in Arusha.
from Tanzania, February 2018
"Amazing safari experience."
The driver and guide was excellent and we saw all animals we could possible wish for. He had a good eye to spot the animals and our car was often alone, away from the other safari cars which was nice and gave an extra nice feeling of the safari, landscape and animals.
Great food by the chef. That we eat vegan food was no problem.
Really awesome experience to camp in the park and see the night sky, sun rise and hear animals roam at night. The campsites are very basic but all the companies stay at the same campsites so don't really have anything to do with which company you choose. Tents, mattresses and sleeping bags used but clean. Bring toilet paper. As mentioned above the simple accomondation is totally worth it for the feeling of the closeness to nature.
Great value for the money. We really recommend Rhino Explorer Tours & Safaris.

"Great safari from 🦏 Rhino safari and driver Ruben"
We liked the organization, food plus the driver Ruben, he did everything to make sure we saw all the animals and get what we paid for. He was very educated on all animals plus plants and answered promptly.

"Great safari with Rhino Explorer Tours & Safari"
To make it simple, the safari with Rhino tours was awesome! We saw cheetahs, lions, leopards, hyenas, tons of elephants, migration of wildebeest & zebras and so much more. The accommodations were very good. We booked the tent safari for 4 nights but slept only two nights in a tent.
David was a fabulous guide. He was very passionate about the animals and extremely organized (even better than we Germans ;-)). He made the whole trip unforgettable for us. Also the chef Action was excellent, he introduced us to typical Tanzanian food. Altogether it was a very well organized and great tour from pick up until the end. We enjoyed it very much.
Asante sana Daniel for the organization and spoiling us with room upgrades. Asante sana Action for the great food. Asante Sana David for simply being the best guide. Give a kiss to your beautiful little daughter from us. And thank you Terry and Chip for being great travel mates.
We will be back! :-)

"Best trip ever!"
We loved everything about the safari. From the first day, Rhino safari made us feel at home. They pick you up and bring you to the hotel and make sure you feel comfortable. We were travelling as a pair, and were matched up with 4 other people who were also really great company and will remain friends after the safari was over! The camping was one of the best experiences as there was a big fire and lots of other campers to chat with. We saw so many animals and our guide, David, made sure that he always knew when and where to find the most exciting things. He was fun and knowledgeable and spent a lot of time singing. The taxi driver that drove us to the nearby town of Moshi on the last day actually RETURNED from Arusha to Moshi ( about 2hrs away) just to drive us to the airport the day afterwards. So you know they really look after you! I knew the safari would be fun, but it definitely exceeded my expectations.

"I could write a book- what a wonderful adventure"
Not enough space to say all I liked about this trip, or this company. I could write a book. Daniel was very attentive to all our questions and concerns before leaving, David was an awesome safari driver, Action was a superb chef and the food was great, way more than we could eat. The folks Daniel sent out for day trips, Jackson took up to Kilimanjaro and Nasri walked us around Arusha, all these guys were great. Several nights the accommodations got bumped up to better than what we were expecting. My expectations were exceeded at every turn, the animals and their habitats, food, scenery, the people we shared the safari with, it was all truly amazing. I don't know how it could have been better. David, our driver is a smart, funny and sharp guy who knew how to find the animals, and knew his way around, the vehicle was surprisingly comfortable considering how long we sat in it. We stayed at the Venice Hotel, and it was quite nice. Truly stellar in every regard, and something I will smile about for the rest of my life. This company is well organized, friendly, attentive and I couldn't ask for better. Thank you to all of you! I will never forget this trip.

"Simply perfect for a lot less money"
I'm doing my travel on a budget so I did go for the cheapest offer. However once on the safari I realised we got exactly the same as all the other safaris. We got to see 3 kills and the good was amazing. It really couldn't have been better.

"Great safari experience"
Very polite and friendly staff. Our guide, Daniel, knew everything about the animals. He was also very helpful and caring. He made the safari experience great.
The price is also very affordable compared to other safaris. You will visit some of the best national parks in Tanzania for a low price.

"EXCELENTE SAFARI POR EL MEJOR PRECIO"
Lo primero y mas importante a destacar de este safari es que te permite disfrutar de una excelente aventura única en Tanzania a un precio mucho mas asequible que el de otras compañías que por un precio mayor te acabaran ofreciendo los mismos servicios. La organización durante los 5 días fue ejemplar y segura, desde que nos recogieron a mi novia y a mi en el aeropuerto hasta que nos volvieron a llevar el ultimo dia. Durante el transcurso de los días disfrutamos de un excelente guía llamado Said que nos explicaba acerca de la geografía y la flora y fauna del lugar a parte de estar siempre atento a nuestras necesidades, el coche 4x4 del safari era muy grande y cómodo. Un aspecto curioso y que fue de los que mas nos gusto es que durante los 3 días que estas en los parques nacionales se te asigna a un cocinero particular ( por grupo) que se encarga del desayuno-comida-cena , siempre buenas cantidades y de calidad. Y sobre todo destacar lo mas importante y finalidad del safari, vimos todos los animales ! incluidos el BIG FIVE ! Los campings donde nos alojamos eran muy correctos y puedo decir que dormir en una tienda de campaña en este ambiente natural africano no se puede comparar a ningún hotel de 5 estrellas. Esperamos repetir muy pronto !

"Un viaje inolvidable"
Obviamente los dos parques son espectaculares. Pero la amabilidad de la gente, en especial de Bosé, nuestro guía y David, cocinero. El grupo con el que compartimos viaje (5 continentes) completo una gran experiencia.
Bose se esforzó mucho más de lo esperado para que disfrutáramos de la vida animal en estado puro.
