    Nafika Tours is an excellent company to help plan your safari experience. We spent just about 1 weeks with them explore the beautiful of Tanzania, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Tarangire, Manyara etc. Our guide, Justine, was amazing and ridiculously knowledgeable. He had so much information on just about everything and was extremely patient with all the questions and stops we asked of him. The other people within the company that we interacted with were all extremely helpful and friendly. Elias from Nafika Tours helped us with all arrangements and suggestions of additional experiences for us. Our first full day in Tanzania we do day trip around the Kilimanjaro local villages and everyone really enjoyed that. We loved the "tent" nights the best and I would highly recommend staying at those more than hotels and lodges. We would and have recommend Nafika Tours to others.

    This is a definite must do if you are able to see it. You may have to be patient, but it is worth the wait.

    This is our fourth trip to Africa, and you'd think we might have been less than excited, by now, to see the wildlife. Not true! Even though the grass was still high and green we viewed too many elephants to count, lions, cheetah, and so many exotic animals that it would be too many to list. Everyone should be fortunate enough to experience this vast, beautiful land.

    You can see the endless plains of Serengeti from here as the rest of the national park is very flat. It is only a short climb but only do it if you are fit. We saw a snake on our way down!

    Absolutely beautiful! Earllllly morning pick up to enjoy the sunrise. Significant safety briefings and precautions. An hour trip with some low flights over animals. Delicious breakfast after with special interactions and stories. Expensive but definitely worth the money!!

    We had the best time going on Safari with Tanzania Safari Supremacy.We went with my mom, husband, and two daughters 4 and 9. Everything was excellent. Elvice helped me put a personalized itinerary together and was quick to answer all the questions I had before our trip.
    Everything went just as planned and was very professional, the transportation on time, the lodges were beautiful, and the food great.
    Our guide Gilly was the best! He was very experienced and had an excellent knowledge of flora and fauna. We’re going to miss him for sure!
    We went to Manyara national park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti, and Lake Eyasi to meet two different tribes.
    We got to see so many different animals. We saw the Big 5 and everything else. Hundreds of elephants, thousands of zebras, lions, cheetah’s, austriches, giraffe’s, hippos, and soooo much more.
    Our favourite lodge was Manyara’s Secrets at lake Manyara. It was a dream. All the other lodges where beautiful too.
    After the Safari we spend about a week in Zanzibar. The island is beautiful and we had a lot of fun.
    We’re so excited that we did this trip and very thankful for Safari Suprenamcy for making it such an easy, wonderful, and memorable experience.
    Thank you, Elvice, Alex, Abraham, and Gilly!

    I thought it would be very windy but it wasn't at all, there was hardly any wind. The pilot from Turkey was great, he'd make it look like we would run into a tree and then a couple squirts of the file/hot air and the balloon would gently glide Just over the tree....what precision!

    A fantastic journey. We were lucky enough to be essentially alone so we had the most serene experience possible. Our captain. Seyit was so generous and helpful and he made the trip that much better. The ground crew were all wonderful and energetic.
    I has been on balloon rides before so my excitement was baseline. The crew, the terrain, my wife's joy changed all that and made this a truly fantastic experience.
    Owned by Tanzanians, we made our choice based on that and stayed away from non-Tanz owned companies. It paid off. Thank you.

    Our family of 6 had the most amazing safari experience! We visited a number of reserves/parks and spent 3 days in the Serengeti.
    Best things about Eyes on Africa:
    - communication with the company and the guide
    - our guide Isaak was super knowledgeable, very pleasant and a very safe driver
    - the safari truck was always clean, stocked with water, very comfortable
    - each day was filled with wonderful discoveries and we never felt rushed
    - food at the resorts was amazing
    The only thing I would say is that our last day was unplanned but Isaak suggested a coffee plantation nearby (Gibb Farm) which was very interesting and worth the visit.
    I would highly recommend Eyes on Africa in terms of itinerary, efficiency, choice of resorts, activities, overall cost, our driver Isaak and of course the sheer beauty of Tanzania.

    We went to Manyara, Ngorongoro, and Tarangire on a 3 day safari and it was truly amazing!! Our guide Abdallah Pangani was very knowledgeable about the animals and different features of the national parks, super kind, and always making sure we were OK and our needs were met. We were well taken care of the whole time, right up to the drop-off at the airport, highly recommend. Asante Sana!

    Serengeti is phenomenal for the distant views, the amazing experience of searching for animals and finding them and we were extremely lucky and spoilt there.
    Ngorongoro Crater is a different World. It is truly a remarkable experience. We saw 8 Rhino!

    I would however only spend 1 day in Ngorongoro Crater and minimum 2 nights in the Serengeti.
