    Festo and Yusuph were both safe and friendly drivers my two friends and I used while traveling in Arusha. They were both prompt, informative, and readily available when needed. As three single girls traveling in Arusha we never once felt unsafe. Festo and Yusuph were both very professional and also spoke great English, which was a bonus. Their cars were very clean too. Thank you Festo and Yusuph for your taxi services and helping us safely get around Arusha, Tanzania!

    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.

    Freeman is a fabulous guide and driver. We spent our day exploring Arusha and went to the Cultural Heritage Center, Shanga Shanga, the Maasai Market and a local fabric store. Out of a two week safari, this was our only shopping day and Freeman was very patient while we weighed all our purchasing options. His English is great and he is very knowledgeable about the city. I can't recommend him highly enough!

    I went on a tailor-made 2-day private tour. I had a fantastic driver/guide, Stanley, who spared no effort to make this the most memorable trip. He was knowledge to explain culture and wildlife, super friendly and helpful, and was eager to find out all possible wishes. Excellent customer care, many thanks, Stanley.

    If you are looking for a car rental company for your self (or guided) drive in Tanzania, look no further. Arusha Car Rental is the place, and I'm so happy I had chosen this company. The prices are competitive and the communication with Farraz before the agreement was smooth and informative. Once on the ground enters Abuh, a most corteous and soft spoken man that fixes all the practicalities with utmost grace and flexibility that we really appreciated. The Land Cruiser we got was a sturdy and reliable vehicle just needed for the purpose and the conditions of the roads we cruised. We really had a happy time with it and I wouldn't think of trying any other company another time. Thank you Abuh!

    Used Adventure Kaskazini to rent a land cruiser for our safari trip. We were planning to drive by our self after using a driver the first couple of days, however after spending a few days with Melvin as our driver/guide, we decided to keep him for the entire trip. We love to do things in our own pace and by our self as a family, but Melvin became a part of the family for our entire trip, would highly recommend him for his expertise and kindness towards our family and especially towards our kids. Melvin is a good ambassador for his company Adventure Kaskazini.

    If/when we go for another safari in Tanzania we will use Adventure Kaskazini again, because of the good communication before arriving and important inputs/suggestions, which makes the trip better. We will be making sure Melvin is available.

    Don't expect the cars to be new, and you can expect small repairs needed doing your safari, which a driver will deal with when you do not need the car. Our car was really reliable and comfortable and the small issues was to be expected with the rough off road driving environment.

    Our family have had a very good experience with our safari with Kiwoito.
    We did it with campsites option.
    We had a good tent, with 4 matress and sleeping bugs.
    We had a very good guide, Abu, who explained us many things, and leave us as much time as we would expend in the parks.
    And a very good cooking chef, Emmanuele. The meals were very nice and he always tried to cook things who could like our children.
    The contact of the company, Charles, was very helpful and tried to give as the best service.
    In summary, very good experience. Thank you.

    We needed a driver on our last day in Arusha after our great experience in Serengeti National Park. Emmanuel was at the airport waiting for us when we landed. Emmanuel is very friendly, his English speaking is well, a safe driver, responsible and on time. We needed to make a few stops in the city and needed to find a few souvenirs before leaving Arusha and Emmanual was very helpful and helped us to find the items. He knows exactly where to get them. I would recommend him if my friends ever go to Arusha in the future.

    Our tour with Hadzabe started in Arusha. Our guide for the 3 days- Joshua - picked us up in the hotel on time. After filling up the jeep at some kind of safari hub, our trip started. The jeep, the accommodation and especially our guide were excellent. He really knows where to go, how to position the car and has an impressive knowledge about the animals. He also took care of our lunch packages, water etc. and always showed up with a cleaned car in the morning. Furthermore, he obviously loves his jobs, as he was sometimes taking pictures and videos of the animals, as well. We also met the owner of Hadzabe after our return to Arusha. Prices are reasonable, but negotiation is recommended. We would definitely book again at Hadzabe, if we came back to Tansania for Safari.
