Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our first Safari to celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary and we couldn't have asked for more. From first contacting the company Baraka was very professional and took us through our itinerary making any requested changes promptly. He was quick to answer our questions and made us feel valued. He met us at the start and end of our trip and even caught up with us as we travelled to ensure we were having a good time.

    Our guide for the trip was the amazing Hussein. Well spoken, very caring, and extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife including birds, trees and flowers as well as the animals, he wanted us to have the best possible experience.

    The game drives were incredible and we saw a huge range of animals including Serval, Secretary Bird, Hippo, Lions, Elephants, Giraffe, Buffalo, Leopard, Zebra, Rhino, Hyenas, Flamingo, Olivia Baboons, to name but a few. He also sorted out our hot water issue at one of the hotels and always checked we were okay and having a good time. Our favourite part was the Serengeti and our 3-night stay at nyota luxury camp. We shall never forget lying in our tent on the last night listening to the Lion roaring outside our window. We were fortunate to experience the Great Migration and watch hundreds of Wildebeest and Zebras on their walk northwards. It was not all about the photo opportunity but just spending time amongst the animals and appreciating their beauty.

    The people are very welcoming and we enjoyed the Masai welcome and farewell at the camp as well as the singing and dancing at Neptune lodge. They all wanted us to love their country as much as they do. Thanks to Baraka and Hussein we had a great experience - one we will never forget.

    In the middle of nowhere there is a pool full of hippopotamus, and clean bathrooms, a snack and gift shack and friendly staff. Amazing experience, low prices, cold drinks

    Spectacular Moment seeing them. While we did not see actual river crossing, but it was worth the trip to see them in Ndutu this January.

    Travel with an experienced guide to view the Wildebeest migration at certain points from the river. We went with easy travel and ombeni as our guide. He took us to multiple spots along the river to see the migration. Its amazing to see the herd stampede through the river. Hungry crocs awaiting a meal. We even saw hippos, herons around.

    We just finished our second trip to see the greatest migration of wildebeest take place in Northern Serengeti with the Wild Source and our trusted friend and guide, Fadhil Magoye. This annual event is unlike any book, picture or video can capture. The sounds, the smells, the frenzy, the sheer numbers are amazing to see.

    We took a SBS balloon flight on February 22, 2024. Our pilot was Mohamed and the experience was exhilarating! A fantastic opportunity to see the vastness of the beautiful Serengeti. The SBS Staff was wonderful, efficient and very professional. Our driver, Adam was outstanding and despite the early pick-up and drive to our sunrise flight, we were always in safe and competent hands. Mohamed is a fantastic pilot and SBS representative. He guided us during the flight, spotted animals and I felt very safe. The catered breakfast afterwards was a delight! Such charming details to make this experience a true memory. I only wish I had brought more cash for tips.

    We had the absolute best trip with Tanzania Safari Supremacy. Elvice is the absolute best with the planning. I am not sure if he ever sleeps as I heard from him at all hours of the day and night during the planning stages. I found them on Tripadvisor and took a chance with them based on the positive reviews. I am not even sure all the reviews do them justice. We did the safari in Kenya, Tanzania, and finished in Zanzibar and I would highly recommend this trip. Our guides Kelvin (Kenya) and Gabriel (Tanzania) were both wonderful. While we were there ahead of the rainy season, we actually got a significant amount of rain and the roads were in very rough shape. Both of them showed exceptional driving skills to be able to keep us moving from place to place. We stayed at wonderful safari camps. In fact, in Masai Maara, we went to a newer camp and were the only guests at the time. This private experience was 5 stars!

    When we were leaving Tanzania, Elvice came and met us at the airport to say good bye. It was such a lovely gesture. Given the rough roads, we actually missed getting to the Serengeti before it closed so needed to stay in an alternative hotel. Thankfully we did have travel insurance and Elvice was incredibly helpful in providing us with the information for the insurance company to approve the claim. The situation was completely out of the guide's hands, and in fact, without his amazing navigation and driving skills, we might not have made it to the border with Tanzania at all.

    We are so appreciative of this once in a lifetime trip!

    This was one of the highlights of my safari. I was able to check off another bucket list experience. Staff was friendly and I felt very safe and secure with the captains expertise. Got amazing views of the great migration. The morning ended with champagne toast , Swahili serenade from the staff and a delicious breakfast on the Serengeti !!! Perfect morning !!!

    Our guide was amazing. Not only knowledgeable, but also intuitive about where to find animals. His name was shankarla and I can’t imagine a better guide. It was the best vacation we have ever taken. Our Safari was seven wonderful days. We were in tent camps 5 of the seven nights. We never felt unsafe and the camps were comfortable. We were there in March and saw the wildebeest migration. It was amazing. The whole trip was amazing.

    Safari with Ernest in Tanzania with Chugu Tanzania Adventure Safaris is the best experience we've ever had. Ernest is truly exceptional, he had an eye for everything. Just brilliant. We saw everything. Highly recommended. The entire experience was organized by Raha Safari.
