+ They are very professional. The driver excerted a lot of effort to find the best spot to see the animals. Chef Ben did a great job too! Compared to other tours, we have the best food. - Ngorongoro is too cold during the night. The sleeping bag wouldn’t be enough. I would recommend to bring additional linen or sweater.

My girlfriend and I wanted to do a 5 day camping Safari and struggled to find a provider among the >1000 that exist in Tanzania. We discussed with 6-7 of them and Suricata appeared to us as the most reactive, with a very fair price (so many companies are robbing you there …) and mostly … customer service oriented ! I cannot emphasise enough on this last point as they really put an effort in here (face to face feedback before and after the safari, birthday of my girlfriend perfectly organized on the spot during the safari, many positive surprises offered that were not part of our package but were ultimately offered….). Great job of the whole team there: Selim (the chef - amazing food along the way); Ally (organizer from Arusha) and Hilary (owner). Rocky, our guide was the best of the best, we had countless unique moments thanks to him including seeing the big 5, a fight between a leopard and two hyenas for a freshly hunted baby zebra, a private moment with two lion brothers from very very close …. As in everything, a tour of 5 days camping in the wild cannot be perfect. But the minor car problems were dealt fast and on the spot. Also both Rocky and Ally made sure to listen and take the time to hear our feedback to improve / and tailor the trip to our wishes during the trip. I can only highly recommend Suricata !

The 5 days of Safari was incredible, we saw lot of animals ! Our guide James is verry friendly, always in a good mood, gives full information and he has lynx eyes to find lots of animals. Our chef Charles was an excellent cook and we loved his dishes during the whole adventure.

We had 5 days group safary with airport pick-up and drop-off. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. Our tour guide Mandela was excelent - great English, drove safe, made introduction to every park and said interesting things about animals we saw. He was really nice and asked frequently if we have any inquiries. Our cook Tito was just amazing - honestly we had not expected such a great cooking servis. We everytime got many courses of african style meals and salads/veggies/fruits and local wine/drink. He baked his own fresh bread, cakes and even a pizza. It was averall amazing experience with Suricata Safaris led by Mandela and Tito - thank you guys very much! We slept in a tent camps and I definetly recommend to bring some warm clothes - in Ngorong Ngorong real feel was bellow 10 C and it was really chilly. On the other hand meeting pack of zebras while going to the bathroom during night was a real heartwarming experience :) Regarding optional Masai village trip - I just want to say, dont be affraid to haggle for the price of souveniers - they simply overcharge a lot.
