We contact Marko Mtui from African Traces about a month and a half before our trip to Tanzania in order to book ourself a safari trip. Marko was very communicative and answered all our questions and wonderings.
We checked a few Safari operators in Tanzania and decided to go with African Traces (which had the best "value for money" proposal and a lot of great reviews), and we couldn't choose better!

From the moment we land in the Kilimanjaro airport Marko and his team helped us in everything we needed - took us to ATM whenever we needed, helped us get ourselves a local Sim, arrange great day trips and book us the accommodation in Moshi (in a lower price than we saw online).

We went on a 6 days safari trip which was tailored made to our preferences and the sighting we wish to see (and we saw!!). The Safari was an amazing experience and meet all our expectations and more.
All 6 days were well organized and everything worked according to the plan we had, we got to visit 4 national parks and saw a wide variety of animals.
the accommodations were great and were chosen to meet our budget, the vehicle was in great shape, spacious and well equipment.
While we were in the Safari Marko kept in touch with us and made sure everything is ok.

Daniel, our guide, was very knowledgeable and we were constantly amazed by the amount of knowledge he has about the wildlife.
Daniel is great with spotting wildlife and forecasting the scenario, which lead us to view some amazing sightings. We were very pleased to have him as our guide, and he was constantly interested in what we would like to see and accommodate the Game Drive accordingly.
We were also lucky to see the great migration while the herds of wildebeest crossed the Mara river (more than once!!) and it was a lot thanks to Daniel's patience and familiarity of the place.

I highly recommend using African Traces as your Safari operator.
You won't regret it!

We had the best time ever with this company. My boyfriend got kidney stones and we had to go to the hospital on the day the tour should start. The organisator, the guide David and also the other guests who joined the tour come to visit us in the hospital to make sure my boyfriend is fine. I was so thankful for that, we felt that we were in good hands. The company arranged it to start on the next day and this is a big gift. The safari was amazing every night surrounded by animals, we saw all big 5 and even more. I am a bird lover and i was flashed by the colorful and number of birds. We had 5 days an 4 nights for a really good price. The cook was top we always had fresh fruits and also a variaty of vegetarian food. We absolutely recommend the tour and the company. Thank you so much for this unique experience. :D

The communication with Marku (the manger) via WhatsApp was very quick and easy, he built itinerary with the reserves we wanted to see.

The service was amazing, Marku and our guide (William) came to our hotel the night before so we can meet them (and pay), and all along the safari William was very helpful tried his best so we can see the animals we were most passionate about.

When we compared prices, their price was better than the other recommended operators, and we feel that the value for money (we did 6 days camping) was very good.

This is a highly recommended company!

We spent eleven days with Marko and our guide- David. Perfect is the best word to describe our time with them. Marko took care of everything, any problem solved in no time. For low budget he created an amazing tour over Tanzania included a lot of safari games, waterfall, hot springs, coffee plantations and Kilimanjaro hiking. The hotels and lodges were on good quality and the food was great.
It seems like David knows everything, answered every stupid question we had, very kind person, patient and attentive. He knows where every animal is and we saw crazy things like hunting Cheetah, fighting elephants, lions eating a buffalo and a dead leopard. He has a lot of experience and knowledge and he took a big place in our trip, we are really grateful for him!

I couldn't be more confident than I am right now to recommend African Traces!

We did a Safari trip with African Traces and we couldn’t be happier- Marco was VERY responsive, super helpful and with the best guides we could ask for.
The prices were great compared to any alternative we checked and they truly deserve the 5/5 rating. If you’re looking for activities in Kenya or Tanzania- you found it.

ישראלים- תסגרו עם מרקו!! הוא מעולה, עזר לנו בכלכך הרבה דברים מעבר לספארי ולתחום האחריות שלו. המחירים שלו מעולים והשרות ברמה אחרת. מומלץ מאוד מאוד!

Glad that I chose African Traces as my service provider for the Mount Kilimanjaro 6 days trekking project, I felt been fully supported during these 6days, and well taken care of by the team crew including the guide Thadual, cook, and porters, African Trace priorities customer-centric, my healthy indicator has been checking every day to ensure my body has in good health condition. I would say without this warmth and supportive team crew, as a beginner without any trekking experience person like me would hard to make this conquer Mount Kilimanjaro dream true. many thanks to African Traces for offering this quality service. here also many thanks to Marko, the creator of African Traces who is an accommodating and warm person, he tried his best to provide help. Overall, The African Traces won't disappoint you.

I wanted to do a safari trip for a while, I heard about lots of guides who do safari, and finally chose Africa traces. Now I can say I took the right decision!
My friends and I did 4 days safari trip to serengeti ngorongoro and tarangiri, it was amazing trip.
Marko and David were the best guides that we could get.
They built for us the perfect trip, take care of everything, made us feel safe and help us with any problem that came.
As a tourist in Africa you may feel uncomfortable or not well, luckily we got Marko and David that did all the effort for us. I have no words that could describe how much I appreciate their work.
I highly recommend booking your trip through Africa traces. I will come back for this trip for sure !! Best experience ever thank you

All these reviews say Marco took them on a safari, however when we arrived in Moshi the day before our safari Marco told us he is the company owner and is not the guide. Our guide was David. David is very knowledgeable, kind, he has many years of experience and he knows the parks like the back of his hand. And you never stop learning from him the whole trip. You can see his passion and it’s beautiful. The safari was amazing. Thank you David!!!

I went for a 3 days safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro national park with African Traces and I just loved it. Marco took care of me as I was solo traveller. He picked me up from the airport and helped to buy a bus tickets after Safari. And the safari tour was amazing, good car, good food and guide who was speaking English very well so he told us many interesting things about animals.

We did the Meru trail and a 5-day safari with African Traces and we really recommend them. Marco and the whole team were so nice and professional. Everything was organized, scheduled and thoughtful through every step. Daniel our safari driver was so knowledgeable and nice, he knew exactly where the good spots are. The Meru staff were amazing, caring and supportive. Ombeni the guide was so helpful, encouraging, and thanks to him we reached the peak.
