    I had a wonderful time with Andrew, he was very knowledgeable about the places that we went, was very courteous and patient during our hike, was welcoming and kind during the coffee tour and lunch, and offered great insights into the beauty of Tanzania throughout the trip. A great photographer and committed to helping you have a great experience, I would highly recommend!

    We did a 4 day budget Safari to Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. The Tour Organisers were very reliable and we were picked up at the airport without any problems. Even when our flight was delayed on short notice. Our Driver and Guide Daniel drove us safely to all our destination and was very knowledgeble of animal behaviour and we for sure learned a lot! Our cook Moshi cooked us wonderful warm meals ( I mean they tasted like 5 star restaurant dinners!! :-) with a starter and dessert every night. They make a great Team.
    So overall I can recommend Meruslope Tours. We had a fantastic time and made some friends on the way.

    We done the 4 nights, 5 days safari with the best company ever! The staff was AMAZING from start to finish! We got exceptional service through out! Both the driver and chef were always so friendly! The driver Salehe , has great knowledge of all the animals and the parks as he has many years of experience. We got to see so many animals as he was always the first one to spot them. He also thought us a few swahili words. The chef Moshi always prepared many different delicious dishes, yummy pancakes for breakfast , we tried many different soups, especially the cucumber soup was very good! Chicken with rice and vegetables, spaghetti bolognas, pizza and many other foods. He was always the last one to go to bed and the first one to wake up to prepare the food. Overall we had amazing time! We recommend 100%!

    I booked through Wakanda after my original booking through another operator was cancelled at short notice - and am I glad that happened! The entire experience was fantastic from start to finish. Bartho was always on hand to answer my questions and always responded very quickly which made the admin side of things very hassle free.

    As for the safari itself, Lewis was an incredible guide: friendly, patient and over 20 years experience which meant he knew exactly where to put the jeep to get us the best shots of the animals. We saw the Big 5 and often were close enough to them to touch if we'd wanted. The choice of camping was also excellent as it really felt wild and many mornings we'd wake up to animals around our tents which was special.

    Finally, we had an amazing cook in Doola who literally was up cooking in the middle of the night to provide us with delicious meals at all times. His bread may be the best I've ever tasted and that's no small feat given how it is made (you'll have to book to find out!)

    Overall, an undoubted 5 star experience and one of the best tours I've had travelling. So don't look any further, in Wakanda you are in extremely safe hands.

    Strongly recommend this safari experience!
    Had such a great time with a fantastic and enthusiastic guide who really loves his job, and a chef that had us looking forward to every meal.
    Saw all the big five, and so many other beautiful animals.
    Pazuri Porini also arranged our transport and hotel for the whole thing, and everything went super smoothly!
    Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience!

    We have booked our tour over Topy Tours.
    We were a 6 persons group with our guide Mudy.
    Tour with Mudy was really cool, we saw al lot of lions, giraffes, zebra, ... One of the best experiences was to see leopard hunting a wilderbeast and to see the Big Migration.
    Mudy was an experienced and funny guide.

    After looking at many agencies and comparing programs, budgets and accomodations, we chose Gosheni Travels and we LOVED it. We originally booked a safari for 4 days to Serengeti and Ngorongo. Because of a delay of precision airlines we lost 1 day in our trip. The Gosheni travel team helped us a lot during that day, as they were contacting precision airlines themselves for us and giving us information we did not get in the Zanzibar airport. The next day we took the trip and to our great suprise, the team still made sure that we visit both parks and modified the program as well as the return flight with no charges added. The safari was AMAZING. Our driver Gabriel was the BEST. From his tiger eyes that can spot any animal to his full knowledge of every thing in the parks and his amazing people skills, that made us laugh, sing and enjoy every moment no matter how hard or long the road was. We were also very lucky to spot all the animals in our second day in Serengeti. Gabriel managed to get us to see the leopard, cheetahs, lions, elephants, buffalos, the famous black rhino, even snacks and basicly all the animals of the Serengeti parl’and Ngorongo Crater.
    Our accomodation was also super luxurious and excellent. The choice Peter (ceo of gosheni) made was super nice. Beautiful lodges, really great food. And we got the most special lodge since it was our honeymoon.
    We will never forget this experience thanks to Margaret, Peter and Gabriel. And we will definitely return again!

    We did this tour with an amazing guide called Abdul. He showed us around five scenic national parks. The food was good, the animals were amazing, sleeping in tents was a great experience on itself (buffaloes were grazing at 10-15m distance) & the Safari car was in good condition (very important, since we saw many cars stranded). We would definitely recommend this tour, and if you can, make sure Abdul is your guide!

    Serengeti amazed us with its vastness and abundance of wildlife and Ngorongoro amazed us with its untamed natural beauty. Best accessories to bring along would be sunglasses, sun cream, repellent (a must) and most important good camera to capture the moment. For us it was an adventure to remember for life! Special thanks to the agency that made it possible and to our driver Aron who always knew where to look and to find wildlife.

    After searching many tour companies I selected Taralight.
    As a Solo traveler many others were charging at least 30% more and not an itinerary to my liking. Taralight was very accommodating and had better selections. I did choose Basic Camping, which may not be suitable if you’re looking for comfort & amenities. All necessities were provided for camping: sleeping bag, tent & sleeping pad.They do provide better options if you so choose.

    My trip was 8 nights / 9 Days which is much longer than many choose to do.
    This included:
    Lake Manyara & Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha Park,
    Mto wa Mbu Walking Safari ( actually walking hillsides and plantations above
    Mto wa Mbu) and visiting Hadzabe & Tatoga Tribes in Lake Eaysi.

    It is very impressive to see all the wild animals on their migration. When you look across the plane you see from end to end a long steady stream of animals wildebeest, zebras, impalas , gazelles And at times a sprinkling of cape buffalo, elephants & giraffes along with many birds. All the while you know that there are lions, leopards, cheetahs & hyenas lurking nearby. Many times you just hear their growls and rumbling called ”rolling”, but you cannot see them.

    You will see leopards & lions in trees, lions, lioness & cub As well as a Cheetah with about a 6 month cub. Cheetahs are extremely difficult to spot as they also lay very low in the high grass.

    We had daily game drives in all areas some as early as 6 am others at 8am, returning to camp at 6pm. We would stop & have boxed lunch which are prepared by a chef that makes all meals that accompanies you on the safari.

    Our guide Fhazil was very knowledgeable and would take the time to stop and give everyone plenty of time to take photos and explain. Our Chef: Kevin was also very accommodating and prepared good food.

    Visiting Tanzania was quite an experience in all aspects. The area around Kilimanjaro Arusha is an agricultural area as well as maasai pastures. The whole landscape is a very amazing vast expanses of planes as far as the eye can see. It is truly a sight to behold and something not to miss before human encroachment reduces and changes the whole environment.

    The Hadzabe Tribe visit was one of the best days Spent! These are Hunter / gathers and are the only tribe allowed to hunt. I also went on a short walking hunt with 5 men. They hunt with bow/arrow.
    Quite an experience as well as educational.
    • If you have time and are interested put this on your list!

    Each area visited is different in terrain, scenery and wildlife.
    • Manyara many trees not too much open area.
    • Tarangire, more open not as dense with trees
    • Serengeti vast open grasslands, plains with horizon to horizon expanses of
    Wildlife and what I call savannahs.
    • Ngorongoro Crater, fairly flat crater with abundant wildlife.
    • Arusha Park: At foot of Mt Meru, lakes, hilly, trees and some open areas. No
    predators but other wildlife.

    The people are friendly although they do want the American dollar which is understandable on average they earn $300 a month. Young boys no older than 6-8 making cement blocks by hand, herding Cattle or goats, older women carrying bales of grass on their backs. Men working alongside the road clearing grass using machetes, plowing fields walking behind Oxen. This is just a simple reminder of how many, many people live today in less prosperous nations.

    A final thanks to LIGHTNESS ARNOLD LEMA, my contact with Taralight.
    He was very attentive and communicated very well and took care of making all arrangements. Airport pickup, driver, suggestions for individual day trips which were not part of the safari.

    Many Thanks to all my guides:
    All were very knowledgeable, patient , good language and most of all very personable.
    They made my safari and experiences very rewarding
    Fhazil Lake Manyara, Taragire, Serengeti, & Ngorongoro Crater.
    Lio Lobulu: Arusha Park
    James: Lake Eyasi
    Daniel : driver that picked me up from the airport, showed me Arusha, Lake Duluti, Maasi Village, Morombo ( maasi market where goats are sold as well as what is called BBQ alley) and finally drove me to the Hike of Maturni Falls and also to Moshi.

    There are other Tour agencies that are available that cost much more, I must say I was very happy & do not hesitate in saying I made the Right Choice.
