8 amazing days with Bramwel Safari

Written on: January 15, 2015   |   I visited in December 2012 My wife and I started planning our honeymoon a while ago and were lucky enough to find Bramwel Safaris. This Arusha based company run by two Tanzanians was an absolute gem from beginning to end. The owners Freddy and William offered great advice and flexibility while planning our route. Communication and Advice A++!!!

The days before our trip we were well informed about everything, got good documentation and couldn’t wait to arrive in Arusha. Freddy himself picked us up from the airport.

We started our first night at Christina House-Arusha (5 stars - everything was great with very nice owner and staff).

Next Moring Freddy stopped by to pick us up with our guide John. John is very experienced tour guide who spoke the English, French and German (AMAZING!). We usually for fun spoke different languages at different time. His biggest strength is the ability to take you away from the “normal” routes where all the other jeeps are. This offered us amazing pictures and experiences. He always made everything happen for us and was (in my opinion) the only one who didn’t drive the jeep as if he wanted to kill us. Additionally he has a wide knowledge about the wildlife.

Now about our last team member on the trip who was the my favorite person I have met in Tanzania. Our Chef Freddy (not the owner, but a part of the team) was not just the best cook with absolutely delicious food, but also our favorite person to talk about Tanzania and life. A night without Freddy after dinner with a glass of wine was a lost one! I have personally become a Chef Freddy fan. Thanks again for everything,!!!!!!

One of the strength of Bramwel is to organize local guide or people from tribes to give you a better understanding. Also, and this a big difference to companies who are from Europe or somewhere else, William gives money back to local projects and helps therefore the local people and tribes.

If you are considering a safari, these should be your go-to guys.

Best travel of my life and I can’t wait to come back one day.

One last advice: make sure to book a few days after the safari in Zanzibar. William can help you with everything you need here.

Cheers,
Philipp

Me and my girlfriend had a safari tour for 3 days with Bramwel Safari. I searched a lot through internet and we made a decision to have this experience with Bramwel. From the first moment that our great guide Fred met us at airport till the last goodbye, we always realized that how correct decision we made by choosing Bramwel. Just contact them and leave the rest, ... read more

My friends and I recently visited Tanzania for work and decided to do a safari in the area. We were staying in Dar-Es-Salam. We did our research and given the time constraints, we decided to enjoy the Ngorongoro Crater. We made our own flight arrangements from Dar to Arusha. The rest was taken care of Bramwel. William is very responsive and on time with every addit... read more

We spent 13 wonderful days wandering at our own pace through multiple parks under the care and guidance of a fabulous guide.

We saw LOTS of animals, including the 'big five' and had the privilege of watching numerous lions, leopards wild dogs, hippos, elephants, monkeys, giraffes, massive herds of wildebeest and zebras... the list goes on and on.

We came across this group through Google as well as TripAdvisor for its ratings and reviews. When I travel, I rely heavily on word of mouth, Google search, trip advisor, travel sites (Lonely Planet, Conde Nast, Fodor's, etc).
Climbing Kilimanjaro has been on my bucket list for the last 4 years. So, it was important to me that I have a travel crew who is accommoda... read more

I went with my large family on a 2 week trip in Tanzania where Bramwel Safari took care of organising it with internal flight accommodations and driving

The trip has been perfect, despite its complexity. We had no bad surprises of any sort, no delays or long waiting, no missed flights, no disappointments with the accommodations, no unexpected extra costs and es... read more

I have travelled all over the world and seen most of the world wonders. If you live your life outside the box and without regrets. You must do the Kilimanjaro climb once in your life as well as the famous African safaris!!! That being said, as somebody who booked everything on site, I can assure you that BRAMWEL SAFARIS is the only company that will go above and be... read more

From the moment we met William at Arusha, our safari in Tanzania was an event never to forget. His staff took us on a tour of national parks and the amazing Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Our tent safari was highlighted by excellent food, amazing scenery, and fantastic close-ups with a variety of animals from elephants to lions, and leopards to hippos.

We had a 6 days fantastic trip with Bramwel. We had a great professional guide that took us all the way to Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Tarangire. The abundance of wildlife was incredible and we viewed all kinds of species of animals and plants.

Early morning game drives that were made possible by the chef always being on time with the most delicious... read more

We had booked our six day safari with Bramwel safaris about a year in advance and they took care of everything for us. William was always there to help us plan out our safari because our dates were not flexible, reaching Bramwel by email or telephone is very simple and the staff are really helpful.

Our port of arrival and departure was Nairobi airport in Kenya ... read more

My wife and I used Bramwel for a week-long safari in Tanzania in May 2014 and could not have been happier with the booking process and the experience.

We asked 8 or 9 different companies for estimates and were pretty wary after a friend had a bad experience with another company who unexpectedly switched him to downgraded hotels once he had arrived. So communica... read more
