"Much better than expected "

My guide Salamu went out of his way all the time to ensure I got to see everything I could which is all the more impressive considering he does this day in and day out. Chef Amos made great African food. The walking safari was an amazing experience and the whole trip couldn’t have been better.

"Great Value for Money - Highly Recommended!!"

The safari was great, especially the middle day of driving around. We saw tons of animals, including a lion eating a zebra, lots of giraffes and a family of elephants that crossed the road right behind us. The boat safari and the walking safari were also fun, but the middle day was definitely the best. The accommodations were better than we expected and the staff was all very nice and helpful. All in all, it was a great experience for a really good price.

"Very good experience"

The whole day safari in the Selous Game Reserve was really nice, as well as the boat safari. We managed to see almost all the expected animals, like giraffes, zebras, lions, hippos, buffalos, warthogs, hyenas, crocodiles, baboons, monkeys etc. We couldn't find elephants though. The driver and guide was very good and experienced. Also the accommodation and food in the camp site were nice.

"Great safari experience"

Had a great time on this safari. Good communication beforehand that answered all questions. We loved the safari and Julius, our guide was great. He was very professional, friendly and genuinely tried to do his best to help us see everything that we could. The accomodation was satisfactory at the Ngwala camp and has everything you need to not feel like you are roughing it too much. The staff at the Ngwala camp are nice and a special mention to the chef who takes great pride in the food he serves and we enjoyed his enthusiasm relaying his menu each evening. The boat safari is ok but we didn't see much and the bush walk was actually quite interesting and the leader of the walk certainly made it memorable and fun. The first and third days are nice add ons but the actual safari drives are obviously the main attraction and you do get full days with only short breaks. We thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend Julius as a guide.

"Like a dream"

I had a fantastic guide, Salomon. He was the best. I saw almost all of the animals that was possible to see and I learned a LOT. I came close to the animals without the feeling of being too disturbing.

Even the nature was fantastic. The sunset was magic!

To climb up to the waterfall felt nice, especially after all the hours spent in the car

"Not reply to questions. No options for meals outside natural"

The driver/guide was nice and punctual. And did his best to show me the animals

The park is very beautiful but this does not depend on Ngalawa campo

"Safari and Mountains "

The guide Roman was very friendly, funny and gave his best to let me see the animals I wanted to see.

It was a very good safari and the trip to the Udzungwa Mountains were also overwhelming.

And the first location, Camp Bastian, was perfect! Really perfect!

We booked a five day safari to Selous and Mikumi NP. Before going on safari we were a bit worried since we didn’t have to pay deposit and everything was arranged via whats app. Upon arrival at Dar es Salaam I met the owner of the agency and everything was perfectly fine. They picked us up and together with another couple went to Selous. The first camp was beyond expectations. Great view and the tents were quiet luxurious. The boat safari was great to experience as well. The walking safari is more a bush walk and was quiet disapointing. The game viewing was beyond expectations and we saw many animals. During the five days we had a cook and he made sure that everyday we had good food with fresh ingredients. Our driver William was very helpful and explained us many things. The camp in Mikumi was a bit more basic. The park is less touristic which was nice. Overall, we had a great safari!!

Thanks for your email. Our trip was great. We have seen so many animals like giraffe, hippo, elephant, many beautiful birds, black mamba and other snakes, kudu, impala, buffalo, baboons, crocodile and big groups of lions on both days. One group was already on the place we have expected to have lunch…

We could tell the driver whenever we would like to stop to take pictures or to enjoy the landscape.

Also the food was delicious and the accomodation was very quiet, except the bush babys we could hear at night…

When we arrived after 6hours drive from dar es salam we could relax on the boat an see first animals like hippos, lizard, crocodiles and birds. Sunset on rufiji river was great.

The walking safari was very interesting and we could learn a lot about animals and plants.

We can really recomend doing this 4 days selous safari.

Thanks for all
