We researched many outfitters before settling on Kapolondo Expeditions and we can’t say enough about them. From the moment we landed in Arusha to the moment we checked in for our departure flight home, we were cared for as if we were long-lost family. And yet, we never felt intruded upon. Instead, Kapolondo Expeditions was there when we needed them, ensuring that e... read more

We found this company over the internet and wrote to them. I had my flights to Tanzania booked and I needed a company to arrange our trip, but it had to fit with our flights.
Our safari consisted of a 6 day safari plus 5 days in Zanzibar. Kapolondo Expeditions responded to my email immediately and I have been super happy with their service...from start to finish.... read more

I found Kapalondo Expeditions on this website and booked a 15-day joint safari with them. Whilst the game drives and the tour guides were excellent and can't be faulted, I would caution anyone against using this company. The operator tried to sell the same itinerary to a group of people and, when I was the only one who booked and paid, he changed my itinerary and a... read more

Our excursion was organized by Kapolondo Expeditions. It was really well organized, so we didn't have to worry about anything by ourselves while I was there with my friends. Everything was professional, secure.
They took us around in few of those national parks whereas we saw variety of animals and made memorable experiences for lifetime. Thank you! read more

This was our first trip to Africa with this tour operator (Kapolondo Expeditions) I must say they were excellent. We received full support from Tony Kapolondo from the first minute we arrived to Kilimangaro airport.They paid great attention to detail and are incredibly knowledgeable. Our trip was fantastic . Overall we had a trip of a lifetime and all aspects of ou... read more

We did a safari covering Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Almost 6 days including pick up from Kili airport and drop off at Arusha airport. Excellent communication in advance both by email and phone to get things set up.
We saw the big 5 with the rhino being last to be seen in Ngorongoro, plenty of jumbo and hippo in the first couple of da... read more

It was our first trip to Africa and we wanted to see as much animals as possible at this time of the year (November). We picked 7-Days Tanzania Nomadic Safari organised by Kapolondo Expeditions which covered Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Park and a visit to Hadzabe and Datoga tribes near Lake Eyasi on the last day of the tour. The communication ... read more

The tour that was planned for us was stunning and the accommodations were fantastic. The communication was fine and everything was legit (if somebody is concerned). Also, the price compared with other safari companies was absolutely correct. The only thing you should know (and we did not because it was our first time in Africa) is that even your guide is included i... read more

From our first enquiry the communication was fast, clear and helpful. We were very fortunate to have James as our tour driver. He was knowledgeable on all the subjects we threw at him - flora, fauna, politics, etc. and he accommodated our desire to take lots of photographs with good humour. He quickly learned the sorts of things we looked out for. He had a big chal... read more

We have a very nice time with the Team of Kapolondo Expeditions. They booked the flight for us and picked us up from the airport and brought us back after the safari.

Thank you to James and Richard; you did a very good job :-) read more

I move a lot for work, and I'm a very frequent traveler having been to probably 40-something countries and counting. It's kind of a tradition of mine that I take a trip every year on my birthday. Six months prior to it, I must have seen something online about Ngorongoro Crater or Zanzibar, and it really stuck in my head. After about a month of consideration I to... read more

Kapolondo Expeditions is not a good travel agency. We had reserved a private safari with luxury lodges,
instead we had to travel with a another man in cheap lodge or hotel outside park. The itinery had been changed without our agreement.
For example, one day at Ngorongoro instead of two, and not in Sopa Lodge that we had reserved and paid. We were placed in a ve... read more

Beware. We appreciated all the promises and communications with Tony before our trip.
Upon arrival (which was late), he changed prices, gave us a junky car that needed to be push started daily, changed every place we had hand picked to sleep at, was late in depositing funds onto the atm card our driver/guide had to use to enter the park, changed our time in Taran... read more

My friends and I (5 Malaysians, 4 Americans and 1 European nationalities) booked a safari for 10 persons with Kapolondo Expeditions (through Tony Kapolondo) from 27th June to 5th July 2016. We went on that safari and stayed three nights at Serengeti National Park and a few other national parks and venues. Unfortunately, we were scammed during the trip. Details are ... read more

We bought a luxury safari, especially because we travelled with a 9 month baby. We needed security and comfort.
But, instead, we had to stay in budget lodge (We paid 4720 USD per person). When we told him we were angry, he did nothing. During all the safari, he didn't respect his contract, he never informs us in advance of change. If he was correct, if an hotel i... read more

Let me start off by saying that I booked with this company based on the very specific itinerary that they offered and because of the great reviews. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! Either "Tony" the company owner/manager decided that he didn't want to do his job and provide the exact itinerary that we booked and paid for, or "Tony" just doesn't have the clout and ability t... read more

After good reviews on Internet, I contacted Tony Kopolondo in July 2015 and booked the 15-day Kenya and Tanzania safari tour. I transferred 50% of the tour cost to his bank account in Tanzania on July 11, 2015. The original tour departure date was June 22, 2016.
I sent my flight details in May 2016, one month before the tour schedule date and asked Tony to send m... read more

I was in a group of 10 on a safari with Kapolondo Expeditions in end June 2016. We had fully paid for our safari a month before. However, at the Serengeti National Park, Tony told his driver to get all of us to pay for the entrance fee and he will repay us the next day. Otherwise, we will not be able to enter. Left without a choice, we paid over USD630 for the 10 o... read more
