I visited in July 2016
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 time required to connect between Parks so we were not exhausted during the whole Safari trip. And thanks a lot for assigning our small group with Bernard! Bernard is very friendly guide with excellent driving skills and great sense of humor! His deep knowledge and passion in nature and exceptional care about customers thrilled us and kept in excellent mood till the very last moment!
Last but not least we would like to say a few words about camp sites and lodges. They all were great, outstanding places! Ngoro Ngoro wild lodge – renovated with high-class service, spacious rooms with big windows and best-to-view location! Acacia Tented Camp was like a 5 stars luxury hotel in a complete wilderness – new tidy and fully supplied tents, simple but delicious cousin and very friendly stuff. The Boundary Hill Lodge in Tarangire just delighted us with its distinctive uniquely designed lodges masterly integrated into kopje hill nature – a place worth to visit just to feel wild spirit of the East African Savanna!
Being a bit experienced with Safaris, we may say with full confidence that EASTCO tour was time of relax, pleasure and fun with high class service and care! Even despite depreciation of earnings due to new VAT regulations in Tanzania, the EASTCO company delivered high class service at initially agreed costs. David & Simon, the owners of East African Safari & Touring Company, keep their business in a very responsible and trustful way and we will recommend your company as reliable Safari partner to our friends and colleagues! Thanks you!

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...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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...
