Erasmo was great. The Land Cruiser was quite comfortable and had thoughtful touches like usb chargers and International plugs, as well as binoculars for us to use. AC worked great when we needed to close windows due to tse tse or dust.

I recently had the pleasure of going on a safari in Tanzania with Dolphin Tours, and I can confidently say that it was one of the best experiences of my life.

The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the animals and the environment, and he made sure that we had an up-close and personal experience with all of the wildlife from the safety of the jeep of course.

One of the highlights of the trip was seeing the zebras, monkeys, giraffe, and hundreds of flamingos. It was truly awe-inspiring to be in such close proximity to these beautiful creatures and to see them in their natural habitats.

Overall, I would highly recommend Dolphin Tours to anyone looking for an incredible safari experience in Tanzania. The guides were top-notch, the transportation was fantastic, and the wildlife sightings were truly unforgettable. I can't wait to go back and experience it all again!

I used Dolphin Tours & Safari to plan a 10 day vacation in Tanzania for my mom & myself. This was our first trip to Africa, let alone Tanzania. I worked with Zaki, at Dolphin tours as he came recommended from a friend and he helped me plan our entire vacation - 6 days of safari and 3 days in Zanzibar.

I had quotes from three different travel agents, all through recommendations, but decided to go with Zaki (Dolphin Tours) as he was very responsive, he spent a lot of time with me on the phone explaining things, recommending which National parks to go to and suggesting nice accommodations in our budget. Zaki took care of the everything for us, all I had to do was transfer the money and enjoy our vacation.

On our arrival, we were given a welcome gift, a huge snack bag (with chips, nuts, cookies, etc.) and bottled water for our entire 6 days on safari.

Zaki, sent us an excellent safari guide “Swedi”, you need to ask for him 😁. Swedi was so good, he gave us a great safari experience, very good at spotting animals. During our trip we saw all the African Big 5 multiple times. Zaki & Swedi also arranged a surprise bush lunch for us, which was so sweet of them. My mom was so pleasantly surprised and loved the food, it was a good break from boxed picnic lunches, that we had everyday during safari.

On our last day of safari, we wanted to try local Tanzanian food, and Swedi arranged that for us by calling a local mama.

I would personally recommend working with Zaki & Swedi at Dolphin Tours & Safari for your next trip to Tanzania. Some of our personal favorite camps & hotels were - Burunge Tented Lodge, Lake Ndutu Luxury Tented Camp, Serengeti Sound of Silence, and Marijani Beach Resort

Our guide Lawi was the best of them all. I’m just 2 days we had time to see absolutely all the animals. On the other hand, he provided us with lots of really useful information about serengeti and their animals. It was fantastic!!

If you plan on coming to do a safari in the Serengeti, you must ask for Lawi. He knows so much about the nature, and also the roads and animal behaviors, this made it extremely easy to find different wildlife. We saw every single animal we came here to see (although the rhino was a little shy, we still saw his horns). Not only did we see these animals, but we came within FEET of a pride of 9 lions (one huge male and 8 females), 2 cheetahs on 2 separate occasions (one eating a kill with her 3 cubs), a leopard and her cub, and a massive herd of maybe 30 large tusked elephants. Not to mention the countless other animals we saw along the way.

Lawi speaks very good English, communicates with his team very well to stay on top of animal activity, and he is always on time (we were the ones late to breakfast a few times and he is the one who waited for us). He is also an excellent driver, on some occasions there was rain and while we saw other drivers getting stuck in the mud, we never got stuck once.

Overall if you plan to do a safari here do yourself a big favor and ask for Lawi!

A great experience impossible without our guide and driver Lawi, driving and watching to find the most hidden animals. We learned a lot from nature.
