Simba safaris were the local agents used by a UK tour company who arranged a recent safari holiday for me. The guide, Issac, was brilliant. He went out of his way to look after our group of 10, all of the hotels and camps they used were excellent with really high quality accommodation and food. He also knew exactly when... More

Simba Safaris and our guide/driver Brown was second to none. We were on a private safari with Brown for 7 days and he was excellent from the pick-up in Arusha on day one to the last day as he drove us to the airport for our flight to Zanzibar. His knowledge of all the animals/birds/plants was mind-boggling. Every day he... More
