    Jairos and Vienna are very responsible tour arrangers. They respond to emails quickly and they make efforts trying to meet our requirements. Food was good the whole time and they made sure we had fruits, water, and snacks every day. Our guide Ezekial was professional and very experienced. We felt safe and secured even when the road condition was rough when it rained. We learned a lot about animals from our guide and thanks for the knowledge!

    Thanks again for arranging us such an unforgettable trip. I’m already in love with this beautiful land and will be coming back.

    It was so good to have everything planned for us and our guide, Cosmas, was so good at finding things that I wanted to photograph and very knowledgeable about the wildlife. We were also in awe at his driving and avoiding of potholes. Ute was so helpful while I was planning the trip (including the change in timing by 3 years due to Covid).

    From day one it was absolutely amazing. A tour around Arusha and the local markets, getting the experience of eating local food and meeting the locals was enriching. We took off the next day for the Ngorongorong Crater and managed to see 4/5 big 5 in the one day! We stopped for lunch under a tree with hippos in the background, a sight to see!

    We stayed in a luxury tent just outside the crater called the Embalakai Tents. We were lucky enough to be entertained by the local Masai Tribe and their traditional dance followed by some really delicious local food.

    The second day we ventured into the Serengeti “endless plains” and the name lives up to it. We saw so many different animals scattered across the park, and were lucky enough to see the back end of the Great Migration. We stayed in a few different camps over the course of 4 days, and had the opportunity to wake up early for an early game drive to see all the cats. That did not disappoint!

    We finished off the last day with a hot air balloon over the Serengeti organised by African Safari Group using Hot Air Balloon Safari and it was truly the best experience!

    We left the best tour guide you could ever ask for (Naiman) at the Serengeti Airport whilst we headed off to the tropical islands of Zanzibar.

    A few days exploring Stonetown, local markets, island hopping and the beaches of Zanzibar. Such a stunning place!

    Would do the entire safari experience again in a heartbeat! I could not recommend this trip and company enough!! 100/10 experience 🌟 🌟🌟

    I had an amazing time. In September 2016, I actually paid to summit Mount Kilimanjaro from the Tanzania side in 7 days, but due to my wonderful crew actually finished and submitted the mountain in 6 days. Great experience!

    We met Ayoub and Jobson Safaris by chance, but thanks to them we have been able to know and enjoy the authentic Tanzania (its people, its traditions, its natural landscapes, …)

    At Babati, we could explore and know the area in depth, with its picturesque villages and markets, canoeing on the lake and knowing its fauna, bathing in the waterfalls and getting to know the different tribes in the area, talking and interacting with them, ... All this from the hand of Ayoub and Ally (Babati's guide and one of the best men we have ever met).

    In Arusha, Ayoub showed us some of the work he is doing in the community, through his NGO, KUKUA PAMOJA (which means growing together).
    We were in a school (where they carry out educational work on hygiene and health, the environment, etc.), in the place where women from different tribes learn a trade so that they are economically independent, in the house that is reforming to be able to reach more women, etc.

    And also, we enjoyed some spectacular waterfalls and a walk along the slopes of Mount Meru, we visited a coffee plantation and medicinal trees, we learned to make coffee in the traditional way of the area and to use the different medicinal plants, we walked through the different neighborhoods of Arusha listening to the history of the city and Tanzania, we tasted local food and drinks, …

    In Marangu and Lushoto, thanks to the guides recommended by Ayoub, we were able to enjoy the culture/history and the nature of the area, with peace of mind.

    Jobson Safaris promotes sustainable tourism while supporting local communities, which is very important to us. Ayoub did everything he could to accommodate our wishes and we enjoyed some wonderful days together.

    If we return to Tanzania, we will contact him without any doubt. He has been more than a guide, we consider him a friend!

    Asante sana Ayoub, Ally, David, Elias and Ngoda!!

    Embarking on the 10-day safari with Sereti Wilderness Safaris in Tanzania was a mesmerizing adventure beyond expectations. From the vast Serengeti plains to the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater, every moment was a wildlife spectacle. The knowledgeable guides provided insightful commentary, enhancing the safari experience. Accommodations were not only comfortable but immersed us in the heart of nature. Sereti Wilderness Safaris seamlessly blended luxury with the untamed beauty of Tanzania, ensuring an unforgettable journey through the country's most iconic landscapes and diverse ecosystems. Highly recommended for those seeking an immersive and authentic odyssey through the wilderness.
