10 days in Northern Tanzania

Written on: August 04, 2016   |   I visited in July 2016 We had a wonderful tour with East African Safari Co. Communication beforehand was prompt and clear. The trip was planned very well. Lodgings were progressively less rugged and more luxurious, as we made our way from a big pup tent in the Serengeti finally to a fabulous eco lodge near Tarangire. Our guide, William, was wonderful--thoughtful, very knowledgeable, and incredibly good at spotting animals. We had asked for a mix of hiking and driving, and there were several hikes built into the schedule, providing a nice break from time in the Land Rover. We wanted to change the itinerary slightly partway through, by adding Oldivie gorge, and were able to do so (though of course we had to pay the additional entrance fees ourselves).

We spent many hours searching the internet and guide books for the right mixture of safari and culture experience. EASTCO caught our attention because of their long service to community conservation and their mainly excellent reviews and guides. We got in touch with Simon and planned a short safari. This was last notice and we were glad to be able to experience wha... read more

EASTCO is a relatively small team comparing to some other Safari companies in Tanzania but the key differentiators for EASTCO are deep expertise and knowledge of Safari , flexible and customized offers at very attractive and competitive price! The itinerary recommended to us by East African Safari & Touring Company was indeed well balanced between Safari time and ... read more

My wife and I had a bad experience with EASTCO. We had to cancel our vacation and our tour. We canceled about 2 months before the tour and were promised a refund (also part of the contract). We never got our refund. Each week we got different excuses from Simon why they are not sending our refund until one day he stopped answering our mails.
I would not recommend ... read more

We just completed another safari with EASTCO in March. For something different we decided to some walking safaris so visited Tarangire, Arusha National park and Mkomazi. Not being our first trip to Tanzania, we were looking for something a bit different and asked Simon to prepare a safari which combined walking and some culture.
The walk at Tarangire started near ... read more

My wife and I returned to Tanzania last January for a 16 day safari. This is not my first or even second trip, but we decided that this would be our grand adventure. We first visited way back in 1984 and did a Tracks pink truck camping safari through Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti, before heading off to explore southern Africa on the TAZARA train and then north ... read more

We have just finished a 2 week safari with EASTCO. We have travelled with EASTCO in the past and this time wanted to go somewhere we hadn't been before to see more of the country. Simon from EASTCO suggested we go to Mwanza.

We arrived on QATAR airways and sat around Dar Es Salaam airport for the evening flight to Mwanza. Not much at the airport here, sat outsid... read more

I'd like to recommend East African Safari tour agency.

We were given a special treatment in every issue.
Helpful crew, high quality of guidance, fair prices.

We combined 3 other safari parks over 6 days and it was quite suitable. read more
