What a fabulous trip! I booked this safari for my birthday at the suggestion of a friend and was well-rewarded for my decision to go with Wild Gaze. Ernest Lugala knows his stuff. He was courteous and professional and took care of the smallest details. We had to delay the start of the trip by two days, but he was able to rearrange the schedule and rebook our accomodations so that I still got to do everything on the original itinerary. Then I decided to add a hot-air balloon ride over the Serengeti, and he negotiated a discount for me. He even arranged to have a birthday celebration for me with a delicious dinner and cake in the bush. It was the most memorable birthday of my life. I would have no hesitation booking another safari with him when the time comes.

Our recent trip to southern Tanzania was perfect arrangement with 3 days in Selous followed by 1 day Mikumi ending with 4 days in Ruaha guided by the most professional guide Ernest. We got to experience uncharted territories in Tanzania secluded from huge crowds. We saw all the big five, numerous birds and different habitats ranging from the lush green dense forests and waterways of Selous to the dry woodlands savanah in Ruaha. Accommodations were a mix of camping and lodges and very exclusive. I definitely recommend trying Ruaha Hill View Lodge for a truly wild lodging experience accompanied by excellent dining in Ruaha.

Ernest regularly takes me and my family to rural locations in Iringa for camping. He's a great guy and always our driver of choice. He has a well maintained car that can handle the rough roads, he's very good company and we have great chats on the way. He's keen to develop his businesses further and good ideas of "off the beaten track" tourist experiences.

My boyfriend and i had a perfect trip with Wild Gaze Safaris in Tanzania. We have been to SA, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia before but we were pleasantly surprised by the vastness and natural state of Ruaha and Selous in Tanzania. We were on the amazing discovery with our guide and driver Ernest who was by our side on the game drives sharing his knowledge of flora and fauna. We saw everything in those 5 days and experienced the thrills of camping in wild Africa. Ernest also took us to the local people of Iringa, learning about their history and culture. We will surely be back in Tanzania with Wild Gaze Safaris!
