We used Shrike Safari for our Serengeti tour. Their driver Lameck was very knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Together with two friends, I made a day trip into Serengeti's Eastern Corridor. Our guide Mark really was interested in nature and wildlife and could describe and explain all about the animals and natural phenomena we saw. He really wanted us to get as much as possible from our "safari" and really made an effort to find lions, telephoning colleagues... More

We, three brothers travelled from Mwanza to Arusha through Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Maniara in three days, two nights. Even if the time was short, we managed see the animals we expected to see, like elephants, lions, hippos, leopard, cheetah, wildebeests, buffalos, giraffes, ostriches.. The driver Vitalis did a great job. The only minus was the car, which was very... More

We chose Shrike as we wanted to cross from Mwanza to Arusha rather than do a typical trip to and from Arusha. Our guide Julius had a real knack for finding animals, including rarely seen black rhinos and a leopard on the prowl and really took care of us on the trip. We stayed in 2 amazing lodges plus one...
