The Serengeti experience

Written on: September 03, 2013   |   I visited in May 2010 After experiencing Serengeti National Park's vast size, varied scenery and amount of wild life, Yellowstone Park, in comparison, is no more than my back yard. Our outfitter was a professional yet personal outfitting company with very experienced guides that never tire of giving people the best experience of their life.
Our guide, Ralph, of HM Safaris, was very knowledgeable about all the wild life, if he didn't know the answer to a question, at the next stop he would look it up in the accompanying books he carried and give us a complete explanation.
The lodging at Mbalageti was first class and very authentic, I felt like I was always in Africa yet the accommodations were modern, clean and well laid out.

Let's face it, traveling with a family of 5 (children aged 14, 12, & 7) from Boston to Tanzania on a middle class budget provides little room for error. It was a vacation of a lifetime, and not one where we could afford complications and hassle. With that in mind, I can tell you that the HM Safaris people met my expectations and produced a trip that my family will ... read more

Our guides were absolutely excellent and always went the extra mile to provide us with that “once in a lifetime” experience. It was even the small things which made the difference. At first I thought how will everything be organised, but I can now say as long as you HM Safaris it then “Hakuna matata!” (No worries)." read more

I was fortunate enough to attend a wedding in the Serengeti. The couple used HM Safaris to organise the wedding and they did such a great job. We were there for four days to also do a safari, and our guides were so entertaining that I didn't mind being up before dawn each day. I also enjoyed stopping at the Arusha markets on the way home. My Masai warrior souvenirs... read more

After initially searching for African safari companies, I settled on some I would contact. HM Safaris was the only company that responded to my request. From there it was an painless procedure to arrange and finalise our two-week safari. We were four, two couples, and were fortunate in having Ralph as our driver and guide. My esearch had indicated that the Serenget... read more

“The Serengeti, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro Crater will all look the same regardless of the guide you are traveling with…but the experience of those events will be vastly different depending on who is showing you through those worlds. I was fortunate to travel with HMS and to have a guide who took the time to let me stop and take photos--as many as I want--and not rush ... read more

I did a lot of research to find a great safari company. I emailed many, some replied and a few replied very quickly. Sue from HM was one of the latter and was extremely responsive to all the queries we had and eventually provided us with an excellent itinerary at an extremely competitive price. We left Australia feeling very confident that we were headed for a grea... read more

From our initial enquiry until our last farewell, all was well organised and all attention was given to our needs. Sue was quick to respond with our initial queries, helpful in her information and suggestions and easily put together a safari which suited us completely, both in content and cost.
All organisation fell into place without a hitch. Our experienced driv... read more

We spent several years putting money aside for our safari so we wanted to go with a reputable tour operator recommended by someone we knew and trusted. Our friends had been on safari with HM Safaris and couldn't stop talking about how great of a time they had and how it was their best ever vacation. Based on their feedback we booked our safari with HM, for myself ... read more
