Unforgettable experience

Written on: September 05, 2017   |   I visited in February 2017 My husband and I went on a 5 day / 4 night camping safari with Happy World in February 2017 and I can honestly say I will never forget it!

We had the jeep to ourselves, which even though it was a bit of a splurge for us, was definitely worth it. To have the freedom to spend as much or as little time as you like on different locations and wildlife was absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to everyone.

The camping was fantastic, our cook Enoch always made delicious food and LOTS of it, and there is nothing else quite like sleeping in a tent under the stars and hearing wildlife all around you. The mattresses and sleeping bags were also surprisingly comfortable! It was so nice to unplug and get away from technology and really immerse yourself in nature. That being said, make sure to bring lots of camera batteries! :)

We saw so much more wildlife than I even thought possible in those 5 days, and this was definitely due to the amazing skills of our driver Zebe. He could spot just about anything when all we could see was a grassy field or trees. He also is just a great guy and we had lots of really interesting chats with him about Tanzania and life in general!

The whole process of booking the safari was great - we were recommended Happy World by a friend of ours, and after our initial back and forth with Joseph (the owner) we were so impressed that we didn't actually bother looking elsewhere because we knew we'd found what we wanted. He was always on hand to answer ANY questions we had and really helped us plan the perfect itinerary. When we arrived in Arusha he came to meet us at our hotel and answer any more questions, and also met us after the safari to make sure that everything lived up to our expectations (it did, and more). Joseph is also a fantastic guy, we left feeling that we had made a new friend for sure!

I would highly recommend Happy World Safaris to anyone looking for a really authentic, easygoing and excellent value safari experience in Tanzania.

My two sisters and I did a six-day safari with Happy World and it totally exceed our expectations! I have nothing but great things to say about the company and our guide (Ismael)!!

We did a lot of research and contact many travel agencies, but in the end we chose Happy World because we saw great recommendations online, Joseph was always very friendly and helpful... read more

We just got back from a trip to Tanzania. We did a safari with Happy World Safaris, 5 days, 4 nights. Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We had a great time, with Tony the driver and Enock the cook.

We opted for a camping trip, not lodges. Mostly because we found lodges to be too expensive. In hindsight, I am so happy we did. Even if you can afford lodges (lux... read more

We have just returned from a two week safari with Happy World Safari's and it totally exceeded our expectations. As you'd expect when booking a holiday with an operator in a different country without a travel agent, you are very cautious. My wife and I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews to narrow it down. We then contacted a few and after a while settl... read more

Just got back from an extremely memorable trip to Tanzania and have nothing but great things to say about Happy World Safaris.

We booked a 3 day Mt. Meru trek as well as a 3 day camping safari to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and Ngorongoro Crater.

Everything was extremely well-organized and we had some of the best times of our lives. Our guides (Frank for the tre... read more

Hello everyone!

I did my safari in Tanzania with Happy World. 5 days (Tarangire/Serengueti/Ngorongoro). There are many options out there and since it's pretty expensive we didn't want to take risks so I decided to book with Happy World because a couple friends have had an amazing trip with them.

I was not disappointed. Excellent service, very professional dri... read more

Nothing more than I can say that others haven't already said, just confirming. Excellent personal experience. We even got to experience a live lion pride hunt on a cape bu... read more

What an amazing adventure! We decided to book a 5 day private camping safari. We visited Tarangire Park, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

Joseph, the owner of Happy World Safari, and Tony (our amazing guide) came to pick us up at the airport. They drove us to our Hotel in Arusha. On the way, they took the time to explain to us everything about the next 5 days. We w... read more

Last month we went on a 6 day safari with Happy World Safaris and had an amazing experience. We will definitely recommend them to others.

From the initial contact, Joseph was friendly, extremely helpful and very responsive (emails were answered very quickly). The night before our departure, Zeb (our guide) & Enoch (our cook) came over to our hostel to introduce ... read more

Hello,

My husband and I booked a 7-day camping safari for the northern safari circuit (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro) and a 3-day trek on Mt. Kilimanjaro in January 2016. We had chosen the company Happy World Safaris out of 15 different organisations and we were glad we did so.

Happy World Safaris is a small organisation run by Joseph. Commu... read more

I joined Happy World Safaris for a six-day safari over Christmas 2015.
As a solo traveler I wished to join a group safari to help cut down on the costs. Straight from the start Joseph was easy to communicate and helpful. After some time he was able to organize for me to join two others on safari. This was an aspect that was not readily available in advance from a ... read more
