We are 4 adults from the same family who made on a 13-day private safari (Southern circuit) with Raja Tours Tanzania.Communication with Rajabu Msangi was very easy. We had excellent service. The guides were always very punctual, attentive and ensured our safety. The proposed route was very interesting and well balance. We enjoyed the reserve and the 2 parks. Everything was very interesting. The lodges, the hotels and the tent camp were good choices. The meals were excellent, plentiful and varied. We had a wonderful trip. We are satisfied with the trip to Tanzania (southern circuit) and we will not hesitate to recommend Raja Tours Tanzania for a safari. Good value for money.

This is the review of the service received from Raja Tours (rajatours) for the private 5-day Safari (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro) for two, July 2018.

Summary: Overall experience: 3/5 (could have been a lot better only if we had a better guide)

A) Itinerary: 5/5 (Rajab worked with us to customize the plan and select
the parks and accommodation we wanted).

B) Driver/Guide: Driving skills 4/5 (Hashim/Hashimu was a very safe driver), Guiding skills: 1/5 (Sadly Hashim wasn't familiar with the parks, hot spots, and routs, however we were lucky enough to follow other drivers/guides to find and see some of the animals. Also, other factors contributed to this rating such as lack of communication, being unfriendly, strong focus on getting out of the park by certain time (we typically ended up at the gate 1 hr ahead of the schedule).

C) Vehicle: 2/5 (old beat-up vehicle (Toyota) with no A/C (cooling/heating), non-reclining seats, and barley functioning windows/doors (some windows wouldn't open/close, some doors wouldn't open, etc)

Again, Rajab was very responsive throughout the booking process and provided us with a great itinerary. However, considering this's a once-in-a-life-time trip, it was disappointing to have an inexperienced unfriendly guide.

RajaTours was a great choice for us during our 4 days of safari. They respond quickly and are easy to communicate with, and provided us nice land cruiser, lodge with a stunnish view and great staff all through our stay, especially our guide Imma who was available at all time and found the most nicest scenery for breakfast and lunch break, and was flexible for changes do to our wishes. Ruaha national park was not crowded with tourist and the animals was looking in good shape. The guide had responsible tourism in mind which was a plus for us as well.

I went with my son of 10yo, it was really a wonderful safari experience which met our expectations.
Four days were enough to visit Tarangire National Park, then Serengeti and finally Ngorongoro conservation area.
We had an amazing trip with this company. The communication with Mr Rajab was reliable and easy.
Our guide Mr Freddy was professional , very helpful and experienced.

An Amazing Experience! 10 years ago my parents promised me a trip to their birth country of Tanzania and it was definitely worth the wait. We booked all of our flights and accommodations on our own since I calculated it to be much more affordable that way; the only issue that remained was need a Safari tour to Ngorongoro Crater. After contacting several companies who denied us service b/c accommodation and flights were already done, only a few options remained. We decided to go with Rajabu and his team from Raja Travels b/c he gave us the most reasonable quotation and the majority of his reviews were good and boy was everyone right. From the minute we exited the Kilimanjaro Airport we were immediately greeted at arrivals by Rajabu (the owner) and Freddy our tour guide and driver and taken to our hotel. The next morning we took off for the game parks. Freddy was prompt and arrived on time. My dad requested we make some stops in Arusha before we made our 4hr drive to the park and Freddy happily obliged. After reaching our hotel at Ngorongoro we called it a night. Freddy met us early the next morning with lunch in hand and we headed to the bottom of the crater. As the animals began to appear Freddy began stating some interesting facts about the animals and the crater. AS the day went on Freddy made an active effort into ensuring we saw as many animals as possible. He was able to track down 2 rhinos from afar, a very rare sighting. We left the park that evening only when we were ready too, we never felt rushed. The next day we headed back to Arusha completing our safari, but my dad made another special request last minute and Freddy without hesitation said yes. He took us to another park, Lake Manyara for a few hrs. After reaching Arusha we said by to Freddy, but also asked if he knew a local diver or taxi for hire since we had 1 extra day in Arusha. He simply asked what time we wanted to venture in town the next morning and said he would arrange it all and negotiate a price. Another driver showed up the next morning on time and took us where ever we needed.

Overall the experience with the Raja Travels Tanzania tour team was amazing and was beyond what I expected. Communication was never an issue as they spoke English. They really do care about your overall experience. From pick up to drop off at the airport there was never and issue. I plan on heading back soon for another Safari and with no doubt will be contacting Rajabu at Raja Travels Tanzania trip.
