Happy World Safaris made our Africa trip unforgettable

Written on: October 19, 2015   |   I visited in September 2015 Our five day safari experience was much more than we could ever ask for.
Preparing for the holiday was almost too easy, with the owner Joseph telling us everything we needed to know and more. We had a lot of contact, which made us feel us feel realy comfortable.

The safari itself was perfect as well. We travelled by jeep and spent the nights on the local campings. Camping might sound a bit primitive, but to us it really contributed to the entire experience. There is something really special about sleeping in the middle of the Serengeti, underneath so many stars. The animals actually walking around your tent!!

We flew by hot air balloon over the Serengeti during sunrise, which is something Happy World Safaris can arrange for you as well. This might have been the most beautiful thing we have ever done (or maybe even will do). Something really worth the the extra money.

Joseph, and driver Tony, took us across Tarangire, Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, which is perfect for only five days of Safari. With impeccable animal spotting skills, we were able to spot the big five in no time (which is quite hard during daytime).

Before I forget, I should note that we were accompanied by a personal cook who took care of our breakfasts, lunches and dinners. I can honestly say that we have rarely eaten so well abroad.

Summarizing our trip with Happy World Safaris, I can say that the tour operator that you travel with is really important for the overall experience, because you spend a lot of time with each other. Joseph and his collegeaus did their outmost to make our stay memorable. Combining this with the most beautiful surroundings and atmosphere that we have experienced so far, Tanzania with Happy World Safaris was an absolute must do holiday.

Joseph taught us to smile at nature, for it will smile back and show you amazing things. It is something that was not only very true, but also something we will remember when telling our friends and family about the amazing things that Tanzania has to offer. Thanks again for an amazing experience!

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

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

During my last holidays in Tanzania I went for a 5 days safari with Happy World Safaris. We went to Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire parks and we were camping.

The safari was very well organized, there were 3 guys taking care of us: Joseph who always had something interesting to say about animals, nature or culture, the same about the driver who also had to ... read more

We had a great seven days safari with Happy World Safaris: Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Lake Natron, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The owner, Joseph, has been extremely useful for the preparation of our trip, with very good advice and very fast answers to all our questions. Our driver / guide Samwel was extremely good: fluent both in English and in French, knowing all the ... read more

Myself and two other friends went on safari with Happy World this Feb/March. We had an absolutely brilliant time. We did the 5 day itinerary (Lake Manyara/Tarangire/Ngorongoro Crater/Serengeti) which I would highly recommend.

Happy World were great all the way, I can't fault their service, employees, or ethos. At the end, the young chairman of the company (Jose... read more
