    We had the best safari & mount Meru experience thanks to Juvenile Safaris & John as our beloved guide.
    We did the 6 day safari trip and would recommend it to anyone. Every day is astonishing with beautifull views and animals. The safari Jeep is very comfortable with cool water in the fridge and an open roof.
    John knew a lot about the animals and knew his way. He always gave us the best views (thanks again, John. Amazing!!) and we could take our time. Thanks to John we have seen all the animals of the area - several times. John is a good spotter for sure.
    Included meals were always very nice as well as our stays. We especially loved the tented camps in Serengeti; a magical place to sleep.

    Before our safari trip, we did the 3 day mount Meru trek. This hike was challenging but more than worth the while.

    Highly recommend.
    We will come back to Tanzania one day - with juvenile safaris & John as our guide.

    Thank you very very much for everything!
    All the best,
    Bram & Indy

    A wonderful back to nature farming and cattle breeding are the beautiful surroundings for the 3 giraffes that Nat and Nick are caring for.
    Both so deeply connected with nature…you could listen to Nick’s explanations for hours because of the deep enthusiasm and empathy he brings out.
    Delicious tea, coffee and cakes offered by Nat who then walked us through the farm to the giraffes sight…so close up and at the same time so naturally blended with the surrounding nature. Thank you ever so much!

    Everything was planned perfectly and the itinerary couldn’t have been any better. Goodie made our first Safari unforgettable. The lodges, the food, the landscapes, the cultural assets of the country and of course the animals were shown and presented to us perfectly by Goodie. His knowledge about his own country is exceptional and his curiosity about other cultures is second to none!
    Along the way we had great coversations, tons of fun and many other unforgettable moments!
    The trip exceeded our expectations and there were no wishes unfulfilled.

    We will come back for sure!
    Asante sana Goodie!

    We spent 2 nights at Mama Mary’s home and we loved it: warm welcome, comfortable house, very quiet place. We also had a cooking class in the morning and could eat the food we prepared, it was delicious. We highly recommend the place. Mama Mary speaks good English and her house meets European standards.

    The Safari with Adam's group was really wonderful. We saw many animals: elephants, lions and even a rhino. The car was confortable and we enjoyed tasteful meals every day. So many thanks to Godson the driver and Peter the cook. And of course for adam that provided the safari on last minute.

    Great 6 Day/5 Night Tanzania Safari booked with Alex.

    Recommend this outfit, but do note the following:

    Initial few days commenced at the National Park entrance gates around 09:50 and 10:00 due to transfers, due to waiting for other passengers to arrive, and also due to Serengeti being a 24hr pass. So at Serengeti if you enter at 13:00 Monday, you'll need to exit by 13:00 on Tuesday.

    Final day at Arusha National Park we requested and got an earlier start.

    For the negotiated price, it was worth it, just wish to manage expectations and realize you won't be doing full days most of the time.

    The driver was fantastic (Jacob from Meru), the cook was wonderful and even did amazing vegetarian dishes (including Banana Machelari - soo good). They really do go above and beyond to provide a phenomenal experience.

    They included plenty of drinking water, and the safari vehicles even have power points to recharge your tech devices and phones (just bring a Tanzania power adapter).

    Other thing to note: I'd highly recommend to pack your own binoculars from home, which we didn't.

    Me and wife we visited Tanzania this year January with recommendations from our friend

    The safari with RJ's captivating safari was great!
    Great guide and comfortable accommodation

    Apart by visiting the famous national Park like serengeti, ngorongoro, Tarangire and lake manyara Ask the director RAPHAEL to give you the maasai village experience where he lives it was awesome

    I would really recommend this company

    A big thank to guide Roja for his amazing knowledge and care
