Jack and I want to thank you for planning an amazing Tanzanian safari for us. You planned an excellent and enjoyable, varied itinerary. We felt that we got a good experience of the different areas of Tanzania. We enjoyed our accomodations, especially the smaller, more quaint lodges. You were so prompt in answering all of our questions prior to the trip, and gave us good advice about some of our concerns.
Amini, our guide, was excellent!! He is so knowledgeable and could answer all of our questions. He was determined to show us a variety of animals and their behaviors and shared much interesting information about them and the land. We also appreciated the fact that Amini is so interested in learning about everything. He got a feel for what made us comfortable and provided for our needs. We highly recommend Amini and your company to anyone.
Thank you, again, for an amazing experience!!
Ruth and Jack Thomas
wir möchten uns nochmal ganz herzlich für den tollen Tansania/Sansibar
Urlaub mit Tanzania Adventure bedanken! Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit! Die
Safari war atemberaubend und die Tierwelt faszinierend! Ein ganz besonderes
Dankeschön nochmal an unseren Guide Gerald! Der Aufenthalt auf Sansibar,
auch die zwei Nächte in Stonetown, waren wirklich toll! Wir haben uns immer
sehr gut betreut gefühlt. Alle Guides/Fahrer waren stets pünktlich und haben
uns immer schon erwartet. Es war wirklich hervorragend organisiert.
Wir werden Euch in jedem Fall weiterempfehlen.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem verregnete Köln,
We had a fantastic time on safari. Ibrahim was a great driver. Very knowledgeable and great at spotting animals.
Many thanks for our lovely spice box – it was a lovely surprise and will always remind us of our wonderful times in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Melky, our guide for this trip was superb! His knowledge of nature was outstanding and he was also very interesting company, so ‘thank you’ for a wonderful safari. As usual all your personnel were excellent and helped make our stay really enjoyable. Maybe we will see you again in a few years time – I hope so! Thank you once again.
well, we just made it back to the US, and I wanted to let you know our thoughts as soon as possible.
Grade for Tanzania Adventure: A+
Grade for Lucas Mombo: A+
Tranfers: ALL transfers were done on time (or early). We were very comfortable in knowing that we could get from place to place on time. This is (of course) very important. Lucas: All of your detailed explanations and planning were critical in putting together an intelligent trip. We really enjoyed the “intimate landscapes” of Arusha NP and Manyara NP BEFORE getting to Serengeti. On the way out of Arusha NP there was a huge elephant not 10 m from the car. Surprise!
Our fearless Maasai driver/guide Mr Loy Laizer:
Basically, he is amazing. How he can drive those bumpy dirt roads, and look left to right and then say, “There are two bat eared- foxes on your left, about 80 meters”, well, we don’t know how he does it. Also, he is an avid bird watcher and knows the name of every bird that we saw. Not all guides know this. The good thing about our group is that once we found some animals, we got there, stopped, every one took pictures and then we just watched for a while, seeing what the animals were doing. That was the whole point, after all.
A couple of “Laizer stories”
We are in Ngorongoro and we see cars clustered around a lion pride eating a buffalo that they just brought down. He very smoothly manages to get us in just the right position to see this, as the lions tear into the belly of buffalo.There were at least 10 other cars there.
As we are leaving Serengeti, going south, passing a hippo pool, a hippo charges from the right side of the road, in order to get back to the hippo pool. Laizer manages to stop the car and avoid hitting the hippo. The whole thing happened in about 5 seconds. That quick. When I asked him how he managed to avoid hitting the hippo, he just said, “Brakes”. I think maybe it is his quick reflexes, peripheral vision and his constant focus and awareness. But, being Laizer, he always stays humble, and even gets a little uncomfortable when we tell him what a great job his is doing.
All through the trip, when ever we stopped somewhere where there were other drivers, there would always be a few who would come over and talk with him. Turns out, he is quite the “celebrity” guide.
He knows when to talk, when to leave us alone, and how much information we wanted.
When we were staying at the Dhow Inn (which we recommend), we met a Maasai from Arusha who is some kind of “cousin” to him and was telling us how famous Laizer is in that community. But you know all this. Well, keep him busy with running safaris and you will have lots of very happy customers.
In day 1 in Serengeti we saw lion, cheetah and leopard.. The whole trip was like that
Dhow Inn- A+ for the physical structure, maintenance, and especially for the piece of beach front they own that is (slightly) fenced off from the rest of the beach, giving us some privacy and peace and quiet from the beach vendors. The beach is A++, and much better than the north east end of the island. The Dhow food was OK- breakfast was typical, lunch was good, you could order beach food (sandwiches, fries etc). Dinners were a bit uneven- good one night, average the next.
On balance, we recommend it.
The BIGGEST review comes from my very judgmental wife, Ilana. She REALLY didn’t want to go to scary Africa, and had fairly low expectations. The trip opened her eyes to what a great experience it is to see animals in the wild. Biggest compliment from her is, “Wow. I really see why people go on safari again and again. This is one of the best vacations we have ever had”.
Again, thanks for everything
You guys are the best

The entire family enjoyed our Tanzania adventure very much. Amini is an excellent guide and did everything he could to show us as much as possible on our Safari. It’s been an excellent trip and we would recommend Tanzania Adventure at any time.
Best Safari Ever – (and we have had a few!)”
We spent 6 days/5 nights with Tanzania Adventure. Our guide was Mr Laizer. Oh my… my 7 year old was soooooooooooooooooooo upset when we had to leave him. He was very good and patient with him. He answered his thousands of questions – very knowledgeable. My son now counts to 100 in Swahili and speaks a few words too. Thanks to Mr Kaizer teaching him number songs!….. But that aside. Mr Laizer could spot a gnat from 100m away, He found us a rare owl – verreaux eagle owl – with is eagle eyes whilst driving along. We saw bloodied faced lions, stalking lions mating lions, vultures gorging on prey, hyenas stealing it, then fighting over it. Rhino munching, walking (oh and very exciting for a 7 yr. old – pooing close by!) Leopard, cheetah, elephants galore. We have had a few safaris in our time, but this one was our favourite. Everything was so well organised. Thank you Corina for organising and Mr Laizer for delivering a fab, fab safari.
“Voyage EXTRAORDINAIRE en Tanzanie”
Nous avons utilisé les services de la compagnie Tanzania Adventure Limited (montée du Kilimandjaro, safari et l’île de Zanzibar) pour un voyage mémorable en juillet 2016. Nous sommes allés en Tanzanie en famille: 2 parents, 2 grands enfants et 1 adolescent. Le service offert par tout le personnel de la compagnie (et surtout par Léonie) a été professionnel, rapide et de haute qualité. Nos guides pour la montée ont été fantastiques; les hôtels et lodges durant le safari ont été à la hauteur de nos attentes et les vols pour l’île de Zanzibar et les transferts ont été sans problème. Nous sommes très satisfaits d’avoir utilisé leur service et le recommandons fortement. Emmanuelle Renaud et toute la famille
The Matlai hotel and the Ngorongoro luxury lodge are just breathtaking.
The Mapito tented camp is comfortable and has amazing food.
The Safari drive was super amazing, and Julius did an incredible job to show us the animals.
We write you because we are so happy with the experience that we had on our
Such an special experience, everything was very good, all the people at
lodges/camps were so nice with us, very good attention.
We do not have words about our guide Amini (I do not how to write his name)
we felt like we were with the best guide, such a good person, he was really
respectfull, smart, fun and motivated with his job.
We had only one problem when we were on our way back to Arusha, the Police
put a fine for high speed, we were expected about the speed and we think it
was unfair, he was driving all the route quite slow.
Also, we are motivated about Kilimanjaro hiking for next year. Could you
please give us a budget for 2 people and an another one for 8 people?
Thank you very much for everything, we will recommend you.
Francisco y Ana
We booked 4 days lodge and safari with Tanzania Adventure and we can only say: fantastic. The organisation very professional. The guide experienced and flexible so we could adjust trips to our personal wishes, the accommodations were beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. Thanks so much and see you soon again!
Sorry it’s taken me so long to email, it’s been a busy summer and I’ve just arrived back in Bahrain. I wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and also to Amini for our amazing holiday in Tanzania.
The organisation and planning by you was fantastic and you were so helpful getting everything arranged for us, accommodating changes we wanted to make to the itinerary.
Amini was fantastic for the whole of our week in Tanzania, from the time he picked us up at Kilimanjaro airport until he dropped us off in Arusha he was brilliant! The kids absolutely loved him (and the safari vehicle!!) and he went out of his way to get information about the Wildebeest migration which we really wanted to see. We did see it and it was worth every minute of driving on bumpy roads!
Abraham met us in Zanzibar and also took us on our spice tour and he was great too. A pleasure to spend the day with him.
We enjoyed all the hotels, lodges and camps that we stayed in, particularly Mapito tented camp in the Serengeti area. Smiles Hotel in Zanzibar was lovely, perfect location and very helpful staff.
Please pass on our gratitude to all the staff and once again, thanks for helping us to organise our amazing holiday, it truly lived up to all our expectations.
Many thanks, the J Family
I am sorry for the late reply, the reason being that Hamad and I just returned to Riyadh yesterday from Ethiopia.
We wish to thank you and everyone who helped to make our month-long safari and tour of Tanzania an outstanding success. Everything worked like clockwork and there were no glitches whatsoever. I have been on many African safaris, but this one was simply superb. We are pleased that we chose Tanzania Adventure to organize our tour, and we will recommend your services to our friends and colleagues.
We just got home and wanted to say thank you again for giving us the perfect
honeymoon! Everything was wonderful and the services were above and beyond
what we ever imagined!
Solomon was a terrific guide and made our safaris so legendary and the
Sunshine Marine Lodge was beyond gorgeous and the staff was excellent!
We will write reviews on tripadvisor!
Thanks again and we hope to visit Tanzania again soon!
Sara and Jeff
WOW! WOW! WOW! That is how we have to describe our 8 day safari with Tanzania Adventure. Our party consisted of 11 people, 2 grandparents (who did the planning) 2 sons and their wives, and 5 grandchildren aged 9-16. Everyone in the group said this was the family vacation of a lifetime. In 8 days, we took 7,500 photos and videos. Both lions and elephants were close enough to the vehicles to be touched (BUT WE DIDN’T). The migration of wildebeest and zebra was spectacular in the northern Serengeti. Our guides, Amini and Mustapher, were great and vehicles very comfortable considering the roads we traveled. Lodging was spectacular and the food was super (the kids even liked it). We were not expecting 5 star tent lodges and newly built resort lodges. We would choose this company again in a heart beat!
We made it safely back home this Saturday, after 2 weeks of incredible and rich discoveries in northern Tanzania and Zanzibar. On behalf of my family, I wish to thank you and Tanzania Adventure so much for the fabulous vacation we just had in Tanzania. The grately customized and well-adapted-for-family itinerary, the quality of the various lodging places we stayed at, those many little details that had been thought of for us and made our journey so smooth, the excellent car and equipment provided, and more important of all, the priceless knowledge and experience, the human warmth and quality, and the flexibility and patience of our guide Laizer, all made our trip a truly unique and memorable experience! And cherry on the cake, our unexpected last-minute change over to Villa Tatu in Zanzibar proved to be a winner!
On all fronts, and thanks to your patient, knowledgeable, and flexible assistance from my very first inquiry to our last hours prior to taking off, you have helped us build a wonderfulk vacation that we and our children will surely remember for life.
To conclude, I wondered whether there could be any way to get an email address (or Whatsapp?) of our dear guide Laizer, so that we could send him a couple of pictures from our trip and thank him personally again for his fantastic support? If not possible, maybe we could send you a photo to share with him somehow through other channels? In any cases, please convey to him how wonderful of a guide he has been and ensure to keep him for a long time 🙂
Thanks again and be assured we will recommend your agency to anyone around us interested in living the Tanzania Adventure like we did.
Michael & Family
I wanted to send you a quick email, letting you know that my father and I thoroughly enjoyed the safari. It was a lot of traveling and we saw a lot of the country, but it was worth it. Next time we will likely focus on one or two parks. Also, we believe one of the most enjoyable parts of the trip was spending 6 days with Melky, our guide/driver. He is a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgable and friendly. I could not be more pleased. My father loved asking him questions and talking with him. The trip was a constant conversation and I’m sure he was exhausted by the end. We really appreciated his willingness to converse with us. I also wanted to let you know that we enjoyed all the camps and the lodges. The staff was wonderful and the food was excellent. Again, I would like to thank you and Tanzania Adventure for everything and let you know that I would highly recommend Melky as a driver/guide. He’s the best.
Godfrey, our guide, was excellent. I have to congratulate the Tanzania Adventures for the excellent trip that was organized for myself, wife and three children. Everything was nicely taken care of and the organization as well as the lodges were superb. I would always recommend and If I would come back to Tanzania I would use them again.
I must say we were skeptical booking over a year in advance and wiring thousands of dollars as a deposit, but Tanzania-Adventure has been nothing but professional, courteous, helpful and has provided us with an African Experience we could only have dreamed of. Our Itinerary was exactly what we we as a group were all looking for.. all the major parks, the big 5, many other animals and of course the cultural experience with Maasai, and Hadzabi that makes any African safari truly and African experience. We appreciate the hard work of the guides which were truly professional and provided us with the best possible opportunity to see as much wildlife as we did. They were wonderful at spotting the wildlife which at times the untrained eye made it seem almost impossible. Gilliad and Ibrahaim were excellent guides and we really appreciated them.
Now we are 1 week back in our home. I would like to thank you again for all your help and from Leonie and Abraham (your whole team), during our vacation. And also during the stay in the hospital. Without your help we would be lost. I can recommend the hospital to other clients (I hope you will not have them anymore). Being in hospital in Zanzibar is not like home. You only receive your medication and all other things you have to arrange yourself. Like your food and other suplies. After 3 days in the hospital I was glad I could go to Matemwe every day feeling better. We did like Matemwe. Upfront you doubt about our little son in Matemwe. But we liked the hotel and we liked that it was more quiet.
So the last days we could relax a little bit and for sure we will not forget this vacation. On more days something went different than we expected.
At first the suitcases did not arrive, as you already warned us upfront, but we asked and checked if our suitcases were in the airplane, and they confirmed. But they did not arrive in Stone Town.
And despite of everything I will recommend you to other people here in Holland. And if I can do something for you please let me know.
wir hatten eine ganz tolle Reise!! Nochmal vielen Dank dafür! Du hast uns eine tolle Route zusammengestellt und Ameni hat sich ganz toll um uns gekümmert. In Summe waren wir rundum zufrieden und werden euch jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
Viele Grüße auch an Ameni
Unsere Tanzania Reise war von A-Z ein einziger Traum. Wir sind nun wohlbehalten, glücklich und voller Eindrücke wieder zurück in der kalten Schweiz.
Die Safari war PERFEKT und im Nachhinein sind wir ein wenig enttäuscht, dass wir nicht länger gebucht haben. Wir haben sehr viele Tiere hautnah gesehen, haben die Zeit mit Mustapher sehr genossen und uns in allen Lodges sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Maramboi Tented Camp zum Schluss war jedoch für uns die Krönung. Wären gerne noch länger dort geblieben.
Herzlichen Dank an Euch für die super Betreuung und die perfekte Organisation. Wir werden viel Werbung für Tanzania Adventure in der Schweiz machen und es werden sich bestimmt einige Bekannte von uns an Euch wenden.
Wir wünschen den dem ganzen Team und vor allem Ihnen und Mustapher alles Gute.

In den Pfingstferien 2015 machte sich eine bunte Schar aus 32 Reiselustigen im Alter von 10 bis 78 Jahren auf den Weg nach Tansania, um das Partnerprojekt unserer Evangelischen Kirchengemeinde, das Rehabilitationscentrum in Usa River, zu besuchen.
Mit dem Flug zunächst nach Addis Abeba begann eine Reise in eine komplett andere Welt.
17 Stunden und zwei Landungen später wurden wir auch schon vom Leiter des Centrums am Kilimanjaro Airport in Tansania in Empfang genommen.
Unsere erste Station war das Usa River RehabilitationsCenter. Eine Einrichtung für Kinder und Jugendliche mit körperlichen und geistigen Beeinträchtigungen, die hier sowohl einen Schulabschluss als auch eine Berufsausbildung erwerben können.
Für das Centrum war die Größe unserer Reisegruppe eine echte Herausforderung, aber sie wollten es sich nicht nehmen lassen uns gut zu beherbergen und so wurde zusammengerutscht und aus den ursprünglich nur 11 Übernachtungsplätzen 23 gemacht. Neun Personen durften auf eine unweit gelegene landestypische „Lodge“ ausweichen.
Dass das Wasser knapp und Strom etwas ist, was nicht immer und überall zur Verfügung steht, ficht dort niemand an. Uns führte es vor Augen, dass wir viele Dingen als zu selbstverständlich voraussetzen und gar nicht mehr schätzen.
Drei Tage lang durften wir alle am sehr regen Centrumsleben teilhaben, dann übernahmen die „Guides“ von Tanzania Adventure unsere Reisegruppe. Pünktlich standen am Morgen des vierten Tages fünf Tourbusse bereit, um uns in den nächsten sechs Tagen Land und Leute, die Nationalparks und ganz viel Atmosphäre von diesem wunderbaren Land näherzubringen.
Bereits im Vorfeld hatte uns die Tanzania Adventure-Chefin Corina persönlich eine genau auf uns zugeschnittene Reise ausgetüftelt, die ausgiebige Natur- und Tiererfahrungen genauso möglich machte, wie unser Anliegen, nicht nur das touristische Tanzania kennenzulernen.
So besuchten wir neben den 3 Nationalparks: Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro – jeder für sich ein Erlebnis und es stellte sich als Glücksfall heraus, dass wir als Reisezeit Mai/Juni gewählt hatten – auch eine Kaffeeplantage mit ökologischem Anbau, ein Waisenhaus in Karatu, eine Begegung mit Irawq-Stamm, Shanga-Projekt, einen richtigen Bauernmarkt, und vieles mehr.
Nach einer Woche und unendlich vielen Eindrücken machte sich ein Teil der Reisegruppe bereits wieder auf die Heimreise. Die andere Hälfte nutzte die Gelegenheit und stattete der zu Tansania gehörenden Insel Sansibar einen Besuch ab. In der als Weltkulturerbe geltenden Altstadt von Sansibar „Stonetown“ umweht einen immer noch der Hauch vergangener Jahrhunderte, aber auch die Konfrontation mit dem damals blühenden Sklavenhandel.
Nach so viel Begegnungs- , Natur- u. Kulturerfahrungen, Geschmackserkundungen auf Kaffee- und Gewürzplantage und vieles mehr, rundeten noch zwei Tage Badeurlaub auf Sansibar in paradiesischer Kulisse diese Reise ab.
Ganz herzlichen Dank an Tanzania Adventure, Corina für die sehr persönliche Planung und Ausgestaltung dieser tollen Reise und ihren Mitarbeitern für die jederzeit herzliche und absolut professionelle Begleitung. Es hat alles ganz wunderbar geklappt und alle Teilnehmer bekommen noch heute glänzende Augen, wenn sie davon erzählen – Evi Pamer
Our trip with Tanzania Adventure was fantastic! We loved every bit of it! Our driver Mustapher was very professional, friendly, flexible, safe and really opened our eyes to a different first time experience. Our highlights with Mustapher include:
– Seeing a lion sleeping on a tree in Tarangerie Park, which is a rare occurrence
– Seeing a pack of lions, males, females and cubs and getting so close in Ngorongoro, which was incredible
– Spotting Rhino’s with Mustapher’s eagle vision
– Felt special as we took secret routes which other drivers did not venture
– Mustapher had a lot of stories and history about the animals, Tanzania and the parks we visited
We had a superb experience, Julius was excellent – new instinctively where to find the big 5 and enjoyed his company. Accommodation and food was excellent in all the lodges with welcoming polite staff.
We loved the entire experience with Tanzania Adventure, from initial enquiry to final drop off. Our travel consultant, Lucas, was prompt in returning emails through different times zones and helped me organise a 5-year reunion safari with some friends from overseas. Instructions for the deposit were straight forward and we were able to pay the balance on arrival. We found the price was great for what we experienced in return, and were blown away by the professionalism of the team, drivers and the resorts we stayed in. The resort choices were great. My friends loved the one on the Masai Reserve the best as we were the only guests and had the entire thing to ourselves. Our drivers were very knowledgeable. We also appreciated the fact that our internal flights were organised and that the financial/tipping expectations were laid out in advance so we weren’t left to guess. I would definitely do another tour with Tanzania Adventure and would also recommend them to new travellers. We have lastly memories from our reunion from Day one in Arusha through to Day 8 in Zanzibar and would not trade it for the world!
gut zu Hause im kalten Österreich angekommen möchten wir uns nochmals für die super organisierte Familiensafari samt Aufenthalt in Zanzibar bedanken. Die Lodges waren hervorragend ausgewählt, die Leute extrem freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Gesehen haben wir bis zu den Big Five alles. Der Ngorongorokrater mit der Sopa Lodge sowie das Jagen mit den Hadzabe, das Masaidorf…..alles wirklich einzigartige Erlebnisse für die ganze Familie. Ein großes Danke auch an unseren Guide Melky der uns sehr gewissenhaft und sicher durch die ganze Woche begleitet hat. Beim Inlandsflug nach Zanzibar hat auch alles super geklappt und wir wurden trotz Verspätung von Abraham sehr freundlich empfangen. Der Aufenthalt im Hotel war ungezwungen und absolut entspannend. Essen, Bungalow, Strand – TOP. Der Abschluss mit der Spice Farm und Stone town war dann auch noch sehr interessant, vor allem mit Abraham, der auf jede Frage eine Antwort wusste.
Ich kann dich samt Team nur weiterempfehlen und nochmals danke sagen.
LG aus Österreich C.W.
Liebe Corina, die Safari war super, wir haben viel gesehen und Amin war ein toller Guide. Die Lodges waren auch alle super, wobei jede so ihre Vorteile hatte. Auf der Hatari-Lodge war das Essen am besten, im Buffalo Luxury Camp war es einmalig schön und die Zimmer in der Ngorongoro Luxury Lodge sind echt der Hammer (und der Manager war sehr präsent und hat sich sehr gut gekümmert). Auch Alan auf der Manyara Ranch war toll, wir waren die einzigen Gäste (so auch im Buffalo Luxury Camp). Es ist wohl noch nicht Saison gewesen und Alan sagte auch, dass die Buchungszahlen allgemein sehr stark zurückgegangen sind. Ich hatte allerdings in der Zentral Serengeti und im Ngorongoro Crater eher das Gefühl, dass mehr Autos unterwegs waren als letztes Jahr. Alan hatte ein ca. 4 – 5 Wochen altes Caracal bei sich aufgenommen, die Mutter wurde überfahren. Das war auch ein Highlight, dieses süße kleine Kätzchen hätte ich gern mit genommen. Hoffentlich kommt es durch (es machte aber einen sehr fidelen Eindruck und Alan ist glaube ich durch und durch Tierliebhaber und -schützer). Dieses Jahr war das Elefanten-Jahr. Wir haben hunderte Elefanten gesehen (angefangen im Buffalo Camp und Umgebung über die Zentralserengeti bis zum Tarangire Nationalpark). Letztes Jahr hatten wir nur ein paar Elefanten, von daher passte das. Der Tarangire Nationalpark hat mir sehr gut gefallen, schön klein und viele Tiere (hier hatten wir Löwen gesehen und 3 Geparden, die gerade ein Gnu verspeisten). Ansonsten haben wir auch ein Rhino im Ngorongoro Crater gesehen, es war aber sehr weit weg. Insgesamt war es mindestens genauso toll wie letztes Jahr. Am Hippo-Pool waren wir natürlich auch noch, das ist echt ein Schauspiel, da könnte ich Stunden verbringen. Alles war sehr gut organisiert, wir wurden perfekt betreut. Auf Sansibar war auch alles gut, da hatten wir ja leider nur 3 Tage, aber das ist ok. Meinen Eltern war es dort auch etwas zu heiß…
Für mich war es sicher nicht das letzte Mal, dass ich in Tanzania war, ich bin verrückt nach den Tieren, der abwechslungsreichen Landschaft und dem Klima. Ich muss nur immer Leute finden, die mitfahren, und das ist schwierig, weil es ja doch eine Investition ist (die sich voll lohnt!!!). Schade, dass wir uns nicht getroffen haben. Aber das wird was beim nächsten Mal. Im Kopf habe ich schon wieder viele Ideen, was ich noch machen könnte und sehen will, das Land ist ja groß. Ich danke Dir ganz herzlich für die super Organisation mit allem drum und dran. Ich werde jedem empfehlen,, mit Euch eine Safari zu machen, wenn er nach Tanzania will, besser geht es nicht. Ich wünsche Dir schon mal Frohe Weihnachten und einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr. Grüße bitte Amin ganz herzlich von uns. Liebe Grüße, Barbara
Hello Corina, We have just come back in France from Tanzania and with my fiance we would like to thank you for the safari. Everything was just perfect : the itinerary, the lodges we chose together, the organisation (pick up at the airport, tickets for the ferry,…) and of course our guide Gaston ! It has been great to spend the week with Gaston. He is very professionnal, a very good and safe driver and it was very nice to talk with him about Tanzanian culture and habits. Please say hi to him for us. Thanks again for your profesionalism before and during the safari. I will recommend for sure your company to our friends and on trip advisor. Best regards, Julien and Karidia
Wir hatten eine tolle Reise. Das lag natürlich an Tansania selber, an den äusserst herzliche undliebenswürdigen Menschen dort und an Eurer Organisation. Alles war einfach top und hat
tadellos geklappt!! Wir werden Euch gerne weiter empfehlen.
Ganz herzlichen Dank an Dich und das ganze Team!
This was a truly amazing experience. My guide was very knowledgeable and what I liked best about him is that he listened to my wants such as how long we drove on particular game drives. He pointed out many birds to me that were completely amazing on top of the obvious big five as well. My accommodations near all the parks exceeded my expectations. In particular Sangaiwe Tented lodge was really amazing with an outstanding view and tent. The staff at all locations were a highlight for me, they were so engaging and helped make for a memorable experience. On Zanzibar, I really enjoyed both the Zanzibari and Maru Maru Hotel a lot. The location of the Maru Maru hotel could not be beat and the roof top bar at sunset is a highlight. The dinners at the Zanzibari was top notch as well. During the booking process Lucas was responsive to all of my questions in an extremely timely manner. I really have nothing but good things to say on what was a complicated itinerary. Thank you for everything and I look forward to visiting Tanzania again in the future with Tanzania Adventure!
We wanted to say thank you so very much. This was the most amazing trip we’ve ever been on. The trip ran so smoothly and everyone was beyond kind and wonderful. Safiri was the best guide we could have ever asked for and made our trip so special. We will expand in the feedback but we just wanted to say thank you so much again for arranging such a beautiful trip. We miss Tanzania already!
Hi Leonie – I am sorry for the overdue message but I just wanted to thank you for all your help with our trip. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and we enjoyed every minute it. Gerald was a great guide on safari and made sure that we saw everything that we wanted to see. Couldn’t have asked for a better person to take us on safari. Zanzibar was also wonderful and a great way to relax after the safari. We enjoyed seeing Stone Town and also had a great excursion to The Rock! Thank you again for all your help! I appreciate you answering all our questions and making recommendations to make it the best trip possible.
Sehr geehrte Corina, Gestern sind wir von unserer Familiensafari nach hause zurückgekehrt. Wir möchten es nicht unterlassen Ihnen eine kurze Rückmeldung zu senden: Zuallererst möchten wir uns für die vorzügliche Organisation der ganzen Reise bedanken. Diese war äusserst abwechslungsreich und interessant. Sie haben uns ermöglicht in kurzer Zeit zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten von Tanzania (inkl. Zanzibar) kennen zu lernen. Wir haben sowohl die Naturschönheiten als auch das Leben in der Stadt sehr genossen. Die von Ihnen ausgewählten Übernachtungsorte haben uns begeistert. Überall wurden wir sehr freundlich empfangen und äusserst aufmerksam bedient. Ein besonderes Lob verdient auch unser Führer Amini. Er hat uns kompetent durch den ersten Teil der Reise geführt. Richten Sie ihm dafür unseren besten Dank aus. Wie bereits oben erwähnt sind wir mit den Dienstleitungen von Tanzania Adventures mehr als zufrieden und werden Ihre Organisation gerne weiterempfehlen. Gerne werden wir bei einer allfällig weiteren Reise nach Tanzania uns wieder bei Ihnen melden. Nochmals ganz herzlichen Dank und viele Grüsse aus der Schweiz
Hi Corina Thank you for all your assistance during our holiday. We want to suggest to keep in your company as long as possible our driver/guide Melky , a very good driver, a better guide and a very nice person. We spent wonderful days in Bellevue, amazing days in Mapito ( Frank IS a super manager) . We would suggest to all our friends your company Ps both bellevue and mapito have wonderful chefs, the food was excellent We hope to return to Zanzibar as soon as possible
The trip was excellent. Gerald was a great driver and guide. The only part that we did not care for was the overnight stay at the Maru Maru hotel in Stonetown. The Ocean Paradise Resort was wonderful, as was the Spice Tour (Mickey was our guide). I just wasn’t very impressed with Stonetown or the Maru Maru Hotel. The service at the hotel (cleaning staff and front desk) was great. Lucas did a great job with the logistics of our trip. We loved having our own car and service at all the safari hotels and ocean paradise was top-notch. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip.
Guten Morgen, liebe Leonie! Nach den wirklich ereignisreichen Tagen in Tanzania möchten wir es nicht versäumen, eine kurze Rückmeldung zu unserer Safari zu geben: Alles war perfekt organisiert, die Unterkünfte zufriedenstellend, die Route gut gewählt – wir sagen „Danke“. Besonders betonen möchte ich, dass wir mit Mr. Melki einen ganz besonders guten Guide hatten. Mit Bedacht und großer Sorgfalt, einem guten Auge und seiner liebenswürdigen, kompetenten Art hat er uns souverän durch die Serengeti gebracht. Wir haben viel gesehen und die Reise war rundherum gelungen. Da war auch das Fehlen unserer Koffer schnell vergessen. Auch hier ein Dankeschön an alle Beteiligten, die uns geholfen haben, dass wir sie dann doch noch bekommen haben. Herzliche Grüße aus Deutschland! Wir werden Tanzania Adventures gerne weiterempfehlen.
We are so happy to choose Tanzania Adventure, we had a amazing Safari in Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, the lodges and the tents were very comfortable and having the best view in the hotel, and the safari guide is so professional and flexible with daily program, we feel so lucky we had a best experience in the first time safari! And after safari, we got 4 nights in Zanziber for taking a good rest, the hotel Matlai which recommended by TA is too great to describe. we love this place so much…. and 4 nights is absolutely not enough. And finally, many thanks for Ms Corina, thanks for helping us to create our own itinerary, we had a unforgettable vacation!
Dear Corina, We are home again, what a pity. We had a beautiful, lovely, awesome, adventurous vacation… We are so excited about the trip we had. First of all there was Msafiri, our guide and driver on the mainland, who drove fantastically for so many hours. We had a lovely safari and felt very safe with him. Then we met Hamat at Zanzibar who also gave us so much information about the island and helped us out. Everywhere we came the reception was warm and welcome! Angalia Camp and the Zanzibari were awesome with very sweet people who made us feel home like Kings and Queens. We would like to say thanks to you of course for the wonderful arrangements you made, it was the best booking ever for us. I will put your adress on the KLM site of employees and will recommend Tanzania Adventures to everyone we know. Thank you again and who knows in future……. With kind regards, Jacqueline, Robert, Maud, Jur and Roosje .
Hi Corina, We just want to say thank you for everything. our honeymoon is perfect. The safari guide is so professional and flexible with the program, we really had a great time. (especially we asked for going to north Serengeti, it so far from Mapito camp)- And Matlai is wonderful, I cant even tell you how much I like this hotel and beach. 4 nights is absolutely not enough. Inge and the butler are so kind and nice, the beach is just like a paradise…Thanks again for your recommend. Every room and lodge we stay during this trip, the view and location is the best in hotel. we was so flattered. even the table we got in “the Rock” , it is the best… the only one table next to the entrance of balcony. I am so happy we choose Tanzania adventure , and thanks for giving us a unforgettable vacation.
Dear Corina, After almost a month we are finally back to home after a perfect honeymoon! I just want to thank you for everything, the whole experience was magic!!! the only thing we regret is not having the time to be at least one more week there!!! for sure there will be a next time!!! I have to say that we heard people having a lot of problems with their agencies, timings etc… for us everything was perfect!!! I’m so pleased we chose you!!! The guides, the hotels, transportation, food, etc… We will let you know for sure in the future if we have some friends interested to experience Tanzania as we did. Thank you! Best regards,
Our trip was amazing and everything went really well in terms os logistics. We just wished our driver was a bit more enthusiastic about everything, giving us more explanations during the game drives. After the trip we realized how important the river is for the trip, since we spend most of our time with him. Also, the lunch boxes weren’t very good, especially the ones from the Sopa Lodge. However, we loved staying at the Mapito Tented Camp and especially at the Kilindi in Zanzibar. That hotel was amazing!
We booked our vacation at Tanzania Adventure, which was the greatest experience we had.. What a wonderful guides! They helpen us out, had a lot of information and made us feel safe! We were picked up at the right times and the service of the office was wonderful. When I sent an e mail I got a reply in half a day!! Great job….I will advice Tanzania Adventures to everyone……
Tanzania-Adventure created a fantastic trip for 3 to accommodate our schedules. What an amazing experience! Mustafa, our terrific guide, took us on awesome game drives in Tarangire, Gnorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti National Park. He was so knowledgeable and fun – we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. All the Lodges were very comfortable and the staffs were great. We especially enjoyed the Maputo Tented Camp! The safari was truly unforgettable!! Local flights to Zanzibar were perfect – a new adventure for me. We stayed at the Zanzibari Hotel on the northern beach. Beautiful accommodations, wonderful staff, great food. Small hotel with warm and relaxing ambiance. Finally, guide Ahmed took us on a very interesting Spice Tour and then of Historic Stone Town. He was truly a master of imparting so much information. Our adventure was well organized – all details were taken care of – Thanks to Corina for helping us plan this Itinerary.
We had an incredible time in Tanzania for our honeymoon and a wonderful experience with Tanzania Adventure! Lucas was so helpful from start to finish – pleasantly and promptly answering all of my questions and making sure we had everything we need. A strong indicator of a good company is the initial customer service contact – Lucas made that perfect first impression, which he maintained for the 6 months from inquiry to departure. Thank you, Lucas, for making our preparations early and exciting! Mustapher was a fantastic guide. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of adventure. He made sure we saw everything we were hoping to see – and then some! I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our time with him. Thank you again for a wonderful introduction to Tanzania!
Melki was a very helpful, informative and interesting guide. His English was great, he was a good and careful driver and amazing spotter of wildlife. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a safari guide.
Hi Leonie,I just wanted to say thanks very much for organizing such a wonderful experience for us all. We throughly enjoyed every second of it and wish we were doing it all again. Regards,
We just wanted to write and say we had a fabulous time last week – everything was terrific. Thank you so much for organising it all for us. We were a bit shocked to learn that Ebola had effected tourism so badly. Unbelievable really. It’s like saying we won’t go to Moscow because there’s a virus in Paris. So we’ll spread the word in Addis and try and get some internal African tourism happening. Would you be able to send us Melke’s email address? We’d like to share some photos with him. He was such a good fit for our family. Our girls adopted him as their big brother and we all enjoyed his company.
I really have to thank you for this amazing experience. I really enjoyed every single moment and I really thank you and your staff for the ? I really hope I can meet you someday and I am very eager to go back to Zanzibar and discover more of Tanzania. I will definitely wish to come back and visit the Serengeti and other parks in the north. Many thanks again Kind regards,
Bennie is a very cheerful and a good ambassador for your company and country. We felt safe and well cared for with Jared and Bennie. The wild life was spectacular. This was the trip of a life time for us. The boutique guest houses that you selected for us were perfect for our needs! Thank you
We want to send our sincere thanks to your company and especially to our guides to mention Mustapha who guided us patiently and served wonderful and unforgettable memories from Tanzania. His amazing knowledge of the nature and friendly attitude made a huge impression on us. All the accommodations were perfect and we enjoyed every second of our journey. Best wishes from “cold” Finland
Jambo liebe Corina. Wir sind heute aus Tanzania zurückgekehrt und möchten dir von ganzem Herzen für die tolle Organisation der Safari und der Reise danken!Wir hatten mit Melky einen super tollen Guide auch die Zusammenstellung der Parks sowie der ganzen Safari war super. Es hat alles perfekt geklappt. Ausserdem sind wir super glücklich, dass wir alles gesehen haben, was wir uns nur erträumt haben. Sogar Cheetah-Babies haben wir gesehen 😉 Und der Besuch bei den Datoga sowie den Hadzabe Völker war ein einmaliges Erlebnis für das wir sehr dankbar sind. Nochmals herzlichen Dank für alles – diese Reise wird uns in ganz toller Erinnerung bleiben. Ahsante sana und liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz
Me and my family spent almost 3 weeks in Tanzania during Christmas time 2014 (Selous Park, Mikumi Park and Mafia).We love travelling and we have always planned our own trips (Thailand, India, U.S.A, South Africa…) but we have been advised by few friends to rely on an agency and don’t travel alone. And they were right (driving on bump roads and animals need experience, do not underate). Tanzania Adventure have supported us in organizing the trip according to our need/time ( they suggest Mafia for instance to avoid Christmas noise/crowd, we were travelling with our parents (65 and 57 yrs old) who wanted to avoid European mess) and they were very nice in meeting our requests (we needed a place to store 3 luggage while we were in Mafia since we had extra weight). All different accommodations (lodges, hotels, tentas…) were well furnished and met European needs although we were travelling in a country where running water and electricity is not common and we were in nationals park as well; the manager was available at the phone anytime for any need/inconvenient. Our driver Gastone had an excellent driving experience and he did its best to let us get as close as possible to animals and he told us a lot of information about animals behaviors; he explained us many things about his country but at the same time he was able to be discreet. When we went back from Mafia the driver came to pick us up and along with our luggage we found some Tanzanian coffee Gaston gifted us (we are coffee lovers) and we really appreciated it. At the end we recommend the agency that proved to be very nice and trustful
The Highlight of our 2 week Bush and Beach vacation was by far seeing the animals in the wild. Our Guied Evanson was so knowledgeble about everything. He was not just a Big 5 guide. Every animal, bird, tree and plants he knew about. We did have a few hick ups regarding the Itinerary but these were resolved and it did not effect our wonderful time in Africa.
Liebe Corina,die Safari und die Tage im White Sand Luxury Villas haben uns gut gefallen. Nach den Safari-Tagen war es für uns die richtige Entscheidung.Auch die Gewürztour war sehr interessant und informativ, das Hotel sehr charmant, die Stadt weniger. Ihr Mitarbeiter Abraham wußte vieles zu berichten und betreute uns vorbildlich.Jetzt werden wir noch zwei Wochen am Kap verbringen. Dann geht es wieder nach Hause.Liebe Grüße
