    Our adventure with Nafika Tours exceeded all our expectations! The itinerary, accommodations, safari vehicle, and food were all excellent. However, it was the incredible staff that truly elevated our experience.

    Our safari guide, Octavian, was nothing short of spectacular. One moment he was expertly spotting a group of five male lions, and the next he was assisting a safari truck from another company that had become stuck up to its axle in the mud. Octavian is a remarkable person: knowledgeable, warm, and dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, ensuring that each day was the best it could be.

    The animal encounters were numerous and breathtaking. We had the pleasure of staying at two of the Acacia Luxury Camps, where we enjoyed the friendly and attentive service provided by the lodge staff.

    Nafika Tours' owner, Elias, should be proud of having assembled such a fantastic team and providing top-notch equipment. Thank you for an amazing trip!

    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

    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 !!!

    I was in the Serengeti a couple weeks ago and had the opportunity to take a Shine Balloon Safari. OMG, talk about awesome. Paddy, our pilot, is a wonderful person in addition to being a superb pilot. He was so much fun to talk to and get to know and so informative. The entire experience was awesome and wonderful. I loved it all, the take off, the floating like a bird over the Serengeti, the landing. We saw so many animals when we were up in the balloon. Such a cool memorable experience. And the champagne and mimosas after the flight and the delicious breakfast all added to the super experience. If you are in the Serengeti and have the opportunity to do this, I highly recommend it. You will not regret it.
