This trip was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I did a 3 day camping safari which included the Serengeti on days 1 and 2 and the Ngorongoro crater on day 3. It started and finished in Arusha and the company’s communication and organisation were great (thank you Glory!). The range of wildlife that you are able to see, far exceeded my expectations. The proximity to the wildlife was also mind blowing. That being said, our driver/ guide was mindful when multiple other tour companies were grouping their vehicles around a male and female lion in the crater when they laid down in a flat gravel area. It was uncomfortable to see the operators doing this (we had spotted the lions and watched them stroll across the grass). Our driver/ guide Damian was a true highlight of the trip. His knowledge of all the wildlife (including the stunning birds) and plants was impeccable. He was also a joy to have guide our group of 6. Our chef James was also wonderful; the breakfasts, lunches and dinners he created were delicious (pizza in the Serengeti after a morning game drive!!). We saw all the “big five” and over 30 (!) different creatures! It was a great trip and Suricata had been recommended to me. I can definitely recommend them if you are planning a safari trip.

They were amazing! Frederick, our guide, took great care of us, making sure we see as many animals as possible. He told us a lot of interesting facts about the wildlife. They fed us tremendous amounts of delicious food. We did not have any expectations about that, however, some of the dishes I tasted on this trip were the best I have ever tried, thank to our cook James. 10 out of 10 recommend this experience.

Our point of reference before and after, Daniel, was great. Our guide, Amir, was incredible.

I took my family, wife and two young children, on a four day safari through the Segengeti and the Crater. We chose the mid-range option.

This companies organization was impeccable. Amir’s knowledge of the area was difficult to belief. He, without the use of GPS, which I’m sure was available, but not necessary, was able to navigate my family throughout the biggest expansion of land that I have ever experienced. Further, given that you are literally completely emerged in both the beauty and ugliness of the area, it did not escape my attention that not only I, but more importantly, my family were at it mercy, and that we required someone able to deal with any situation comforted. Amir was not only able, but was actually helping other companies fix their broken-down land cruisers along the way.

Facilities were extremely nice and the service at each was over the top. My family and I came back to our tented camp (which is really just a nice hotel room in the bush with cavas wall), on one of the colder evenings, to have noticed that the staff had filled hot-water bladders (“bush babies”) into our beds so to warm them prior to our arrival. Five-star service.

Well done.

We took 4 days safari with them. Everything went really well, our driver ( Amiri) has been doing this for 12 year so knew it all. The food was great ( chef Pius) and everything went really smooth from the pickup until the day drop off.

The safari was incredible, our driver Amiri was very experienced and knew everything! We slept in tents and was really comfortable, the food was very nice as we had hot meals everyday. The highlight was to see lioness with her cubs 2 meters from us!

We couldn’t wish for a better Safari Experience than with Suricata!

The entire team is very welcoming, considerate and super well organized: From the first to the last day everything ran smoothly (informative briefings, airport pickup/drop off etc).

All accommodations were wonderful and unique, fulfilling every desire; food was always fresh and delicious.

Above all, we were very lucky to have had Mandela as our guide. He is highly experienced and leaves no question unanswered. Never before have we been able to spot so many animals and most of them from close distance. During the entire Safari he made sure that we didn’t had to worry about a single thing. After all, Mandela is a wonderful human being, you would be lucky to have around!

Thus, I highly recommend this trip to everyone who is looking for a unique, amazing Safari experience with lots of comfort!

What an amazing experience & if you're reading this then you must be considering it. I say just go for it! The Safari really was outstanding.

Edgar - Our tour guide was great. He was super friendly, answered all our safari questions & made sure to get us the best views of all the animals!

We got to see the top 5 plus much more - more than I expected on a single safari trip!

Salim was excellent, he takes so much pride in his cooking. We noticed some tours had lunch boxes but Salim made sure to keep us nice and full every day with delicious homemade food breakfast, lunch & dinner!

Will recommend Suricata Safari's to my friends and family.

Thanks for an amazing time!

This was an amazing experience. Freddy is a very competent guide who did his best to introduce us to the wonders of the Tanzanian wildlife as well as to the culture of the local people. The chef James and his team prepared tasty local food every day and made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole journey. I strongly recommend Suricata safaris, everything was perfectly organized from the beginning to the end.

The safari trip was amazing! It was well organised and everybody was very helpful. Edgar, our driver and guide, was very knowledgeable, provided lots of information. Thanks to him we managed to see the Big 5 and more! The food was delicious - our chef prepared fresh meals every day. The tents and sleeping bags provided were very clean. I highly recommend going with Suricata Safari.
