Tembo Adventures is a locally owned and operated Tanzanian safari guiding company. Their contacts within the local community provided closer connections with the many other local people and staff we met along the way. We wanted to see animals of course, but we also wanted to meet people and become acquainted with Tanzanian culture, history, and current times. If you want to go on safari with a local - Tembo Adventures is your company! (Most other guiding choices are actually owned operated by ex-pats, and often headquartered outside of Tanzania. So Tembo is very unique in this way.)

Tembo Adventures were very easy to deal with. They answered numerous questions as we arranged the trip - including changes about where to stay. And the places they recommended were all excellent: the hotel in Arusha, Lodge at Ngoragora, tent camp at Ndutu, and the magnificent Kubu Kubu "tented" Lodge at the Serengeti. Tembo handled all the internal arrangements very efficiently - there were no hitches or problems at all. Tembo also helped us with arrangements not related to the safari as we did some additional travelling to Zanzibar.

Our guide Sevrin was an excellent guide. We didn't come with a list of animals to see, but ended up seeing the Big Five and at least fifty more - all up close, walking by our parked car: lions, cheetahs, leopard, black rhino, elephants, hippos, giraffes, flamingos, and herds of zebra, wildebeest, gazelles, antelopes, and buffalo. Severin also has a good eye and always found the perfect angle for photographing. We also enjoyed talking with Severin about Tanzania's history and current times. Climate change, and economic and political issues are on all our minds.

We are English speakers and found all the staff at Tembo very easy to communicate with (as well as all the staff we met along the way). Written English was sometimes a little tricky, but not a problem. For example, the final written itinerary was very clear as to what was being provided at what cost - and what was not covered. And all the terms were fully met.

We highly recommend Tembo Adventures.

We traveled with Justin first time 2008 and we just now completed our 4th safari with Justin Solomon and Tembo Adventure. Fantstic service and great knowledge about animals and nature makes us want to come back again to them. I can greatly recommend them. Justin also became one of our best friends. Thank you!

I cannot say enough great things about my trip to Tanzania with Tembo Adventure and Safaris! The guides were very knowledgeable, entertaining, friendly, accommodating and so much fun. We saw every type of animal I expected to see and more! I took over 2500 pictures of amazing animals and beautiful scenery. The trip was expertly planned and we didn't have to worry about a thing. All transportation, meals, resorts, coffee, lunch and snacks for game drives...everything was handled for us. Our tour guides took wonderful care of us during our stay and I especially appreciated them accommodating my need for gluten free meals. I have Celiac's Disease and did not have a problem with finding gluten free options while I was there. I would highly recommend Tembo to anyone wanting a stress free, fun and exciting adventure tour in Tanzania!

One of my favorite days on safari this year was an extra day spent in Ngorongoro Crater with our personal guide Justin Solomon Laizer. Justin's incredible eyes and skill at tracking game positioned us right in the path of a large pride of lions. We stood and watched as the entire group walked up to and around our vehicle before continuing on their way across the savanna. I took several hundred pictures of that spectacular encounter and over 8000 during our 10 days with Tembo. Thank you again Justin and Tembo Adventure and Safari for a most spectacular day that I will remember for the rest of my life.
