    It was an incredible experience! We had the opportunity to see several species of animals up close that I had only seen on National Geographic. Another positive point was our guide, Elias, who had experience and knowledge of the region and the species present in it, enabling our encounter with the “big five” and several other species! It is also worth highlighting the excellent meal prepared by chef Mussa, which is one of the company's differences in providing a delicious meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner (several other companies only offered snacks at lunch). Finally, I would like to thank Daniel Enrique for his concern in receiving feedback from the tour and being super attentive on our return. I will recommend the company to anyone who wants to go on safari in Tanzania.

    We had such an amazing experience on safari with Meru Slopes. We chose the 4 day join safari, we dealt with Kelvin and then Geoffrey, the owner, we had 5 people in a 6 person vehicle which felt like a good amount. The booking process was smooth and friendly, and we were allowed to stay at the Tourist Inn Hotel in the city the day before and the day after the safari. The hotel itself is a little worn and outside it is noisy, but the breakfast was nice and the showers hot, so no complaints.

    The safari itself was led by our driver and guide, Florian and Gadi was our cook. They made an amazing team. Florian was a great driver and seemed to have a sixth sense where to find the animals as we always managed to be first at the scene with lions, elephants and other animals. He was also very knowledgeable about just about everything related to the animals and the land. Then when it was mealtimes Gadi provided us with excellent food that seemed impossible given the circumstances and provisions that he had to work with. The menu was always varied and very tasty.

    We are glad that we went on the camping safari because we got to experience the rusticness and the sounds of the animals at night. In the Serengeti we had Hyenas roaming around the campsite making noises as we slept, or didn't sleep. In the Ngorongoro campsite there were Buffalos grazing after dark. Both nights we got to see the blankets of stars decorating the sky. We were treated to a fantastic sunrise at the Ngorongoro crater on the last morning of the tour.

    Apart from the action packed tours of the 3 national parks we also got to experience a Masai village where we took part in a ritualistic jumping ceremony. We then had a tour of the village and a glimpse at their way of life, and of course the experience ended with a shop, where they sold handmade items, remember to haggle.

    All in all it was a fantastic experience that will live long in the memory. We would highly recommend this tour company if you are considering a Tanzanian safari.

    My wife and I had an incredible time in Materuni. If you're looking to dance, eat, and learn about local culture, Materuni is the place to be. Amani, our trip organizer, suggested Materuni to us because we wanted a cultural tour after our safari, and we're so glad we went for it. We want to extend our gratitude to Amani and the Key2Africa Safaris team for making our holiday so special. If you're considering a tour in Materuni, we highly recommend reaching out to Amani. Here's his WhatsApp contact: +255743900014.

    During this safari day, we had a guide who loved his job – he was both engaging and interested. Moreover, he was friendly, open to humor, and our exchanges were filled with laughter and seriousness. Hassan, thanks for this experience and your keen eye. We saw a lioness and a lion, giraffes, and elephants passing right next to our vehicle – truly incredible. Thanks, and Hakuna Matata. The local meal was fantastic.

    We just came from one of the top experiences of our life. It feels like words are not enough to describe the absolutely amazing experience we had. We had high expectations to begin with, but even such high expectations were exceeded by Suricata. The organization of the safari was smooth, and you could see that everybody is professional and working to give you a top experience. We started off the first day by seeing lots of animals, something we did not even expect. Our guide, Amir, is super knowledgeable and experienced, and also has insanely good driving skills. He explained so many things to us, about the geography, the animals, the flora, the culture and conditions of the park, that gave us context and created a more complex safari experience. He did his absolute best to give us amazing views, and take us close to see all animals, while also ensuring we are safe and comfortable at all times. We managed to see all the big 5, plus many MANY more. From large numbers of zebras, to prides of lions and flamingoes on the shores of lakes, we did see them all. Amir has incredible eyesight, and made sure we experienced the best.
    We had the most amazing lunches, honestly the food was delicious. Hats off to our chef, thank you for feeding us such tasty food, we'll definitely remember the freshly cooked meals!
    The parks are so beautiful, your jaw drops at every corner, you're never bored. We got to experience unique things, from a live hunt to seeing up close the most impressive of animals.
    The lodges we stayed at were absolutely top notch, super clean, beautiful and comfortable, and the staff were professional and ready to help you with anything and ensure you are safe and comfortable at all times. Not to mention that we were well fed for all our meals, and the staff accomodated our needs :)
    Extra thanks to Daniel for being knowledgeable and helping us organise other experiences, Glory for replying to all of my questions with patience, our drivers from the airport and from Arusha to the start of the safari for smooth driving.
    Last, but not least, we were lucky to have an amazing group on the safari that we now consider our friends!
    Suricata Safaris truly delivered an amazing, once in a lifetime experience that is well worth the cost. Tanzania is a safe and amazing place to travel to when you leave the planning to professionals like Suricata!

    Don’t miss going with Zac to Mount Kilimanjaro, especially if you’re limited on time and don’t plan on going to the summit. I did a day hike because I wanted to see this majestic mountain and I really had the best time with Zac and our driver Elisha. Zac is really knowledgeable and super fun and friendly, you’ll have a blast! I highly recommend this tour!!

    This tour was even better than I expected! The company communicated very professionally and were very helpful with transport for hotels and airport. On the tour we had a very experienced guide/driver who found so many animals for us and knew lots about them. He was the best guide I've had in 4 weeks in Africa. The camping was fun and the support staff prepared excellent meals and helped with luggage. I would 100% recommend this company for my own friends and family!

    When we arrived at the border of Kenia and Tanzania we were welcomed by our guide Emil. He helped us enter the country and away we went to what turned out to be the safari trip of a lifetime! We are completely overwhelmed by the beauty of Tanzania! The great thing is that all the national parks we visited were completely different. Different vegetation, roads, wildlife, cultures., places to stay! All very impressive and unique by themselves! The expertise of Emil was invaluable! He is a true expert in wildlife spotting and driving, friendly and extremely helpful on anything else you need! The quality of service of Easytravel was also outstanding! Last but not least, we saw the Big Five! Thank you for an unforgettable adventure!

    We had an amazing experience and I highly recommend Dancing Simba for the outstanding time. We were lucky to have guide with us, he is highly experienced and has a great sense of humor. He knew the expansive Serengeti very well materuu , thus the game drives with him were very productive.

    We were able to see a variety of animals including the big 5! The tour guide and the chef were really kind and explained everything to us.
    Also the other tour participants were absolutely cool and we became good friends.

    Kilipath Afrocan Safari was always on time and responded quickly so totally recommended!!
    Would like to use them again.
