I had such a great time on this safari!! Our drivers/guides were entertaining and informative and happy to stop for pictures as much as we wanted. Of course they make a lot of effort to find lions since that is the big attraction, but we were lucky enough to see two rhinos quite close, which was a delightful surprise. Was such a magical experience that made me feel like a kid at Disneyland. And we had good local food for lunch (we saw the packed lunches other groups had that looked awful). Spent overnight glamping at a lodge that provided a delicious dinner, had a bar, and even provided entertainment in the evening with music, dancers and acrobats. Plus I had a great group of other travelers in my jeep, which was nice. This is also a good price for a two day, two park safari. Didn’t like Tarangire as much as Ngorongoro, but happy to experience both and definitely recommend. Tour operators are very nice people.

Volker and me are very very happy to have our safari with Anuar and Freddy. We felt so good, with the animals that we have seen, with the landscape the wilderness in Serengeti, so beautiful. Freddy cooked the best diner and gave us the best tasting lunchboxes ever. Also the Ngorongoro Crater was one off the best experience that we had. Thank you for all the explaining, could you please say this to Anour and Freddy. Thank you so much, Asante Sana. You can do this words as an reference on you official homepage.

Well organized. They arrived on time, took into account wishes for the route and additional activities, and helped with the search for souvenirs. They were attentive and polite. They told interesting facts during the tour, helped with photographs and the best places to photograph animals in the park

Everything very organized and well rehearsed, safe transport, comfortable accommodation. Driver and guide Malissa is the best I've ever met on all the tours in various places around the world. I strongly recommend the activity.

Fantastic. Liked Tarangire best as the animals there were much closer. In Ngorongoro the animals were at a great distance and we occasionally had to use binoculars.
