We were greeted by Dolphin Tours & Safaris at the Mwanza Airport and taken to our hotel in Mwanza. The following morning, we met our guide Erasto. Before the start of the Safari, he briefed us about Serengeti National Park and the duration of the trip between Mwanza and the park. He told us what to DO and what NOT to DO.

The quality of the Safari depends totally on your guide, and ours was superb. He drove carefully, was considerate, knowledgeable, polite, and spoke excellent English.

He found all of the big 5 (doubtless with help from his friends on the radio) and could spot things well before we did.

We would recommend Dolphin Tours based on our experience with correspondence with Tours Consultant (Shivam) and Erasto.

Dolphin Tours and Safaris are professional, well-organized and excellent tour operator! They planned the entire safari tour to Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Serengeti in a short period of time. Our tour guide, Mathew, was excellent and very knowledgeable. He kept in mind what we wanted to see and curated the experience and narrative accordingly. We couldn’t have had a better experience. We wanted to add a quick trip to Tarangire on the last day. Dolphin Tours were quick and flexible to accommodate this request. We were able to see everything from lions, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, and so much more! Top Notch Service. Giving them 5 star ratings.

We had a wonderful time and were able to see so many animals while enjoying the beautiful Serengeti! Our guide Lawi was AMAZING and made the experience so enjoyable sharing his knowledge and telling us great stories. Lawi also took us to visit the Maasai (local tribe) which is definitely an experience to remember, we learn so much about their culture and got to meet incredible and lovable people. Thank you Lawi for everything! Nicole and Betty

After a relaxing time exploring Zanzibar we booked a last minute safari in Serengeti. What an incredible experience. In 3 days we experienced the full diversity of wildlife in Serengeti and spent some time visiting the Masaii Boma. An incredible 3 days made all the more spectacular by our guide, Swedi. He can spot a mongoose from 100 metres and a leopard lounging over a branch in the half-light of the dusk. He navigated the rutted tracks smoothly and found a bevy of bathing Hippos at short notice. He’s an expert and a patient, knowledgeable man. Serena Lodge is ideally situated with dik-diks freely wandering in the grounds and there’s a playful hornbill looking for attention. A perfect safari for Louise and me which we’ll remember for a lifetime.

Our time in the Savannah of the Serengeti was enhanced exponentially by our guide, Lawi. From the time he picked us up from the Seronera airstrip, we knew we were in great hands. He has a keen eye for spotting animals and shared a wealth of knowledge about each of the big 5 and the birds. It was an education we didn’t expect but well appreciated.

We highly recommend Lawi as a tour guide with Dolphin Tours. Promise you won’t be disappointed. #LastBornSafari (inside joke)
