Go with Maasai

Written on: June 01, 2015   |   I visited in May 2015 After much research and deliberation, I booked a safari for four friends and myself through Maasai Wanderings, and I am so glad I did. Maasai Wanderings has a passionate team of professionals who treat each and every client as if they are VIPs. For months Abdullie corresponded with me via email, answering my many questions. He worked with me to personalize our tour to meet our budget, interests and needs - even changing things many times. He made excellent recommendations and while we went to Tanzania to see the animals, thanks to him we saw and experienced so much more. Trips to the Maasai village and the Olduvai Gorge ended up being some of our favorite experiences. Meeting the Maasai tribes and learning about their culture was a treat. So was our trip to the Olduvai Gorge, where we talked for hours with the staff.

MW also offered a ton of options when it came to hotel & tented camp accommodations - and all were great. The Pioneer Tented Camp was an incredible experience. I am just sad that we did not get to stay at Maasai Wanderings new tented camp, which seems incredible.

At the end of our trip, when our time with Maasai Wanderings was over but we ran into plane trouble, Abdullie jumped in to help us, even though he did not have to. His call to the airline saved us hundreds of dollars and hours of headaches.

Our driver, Evarest, was also outstanding. You can just tell he knows what he is doing. He taught us a ton - words and phrases in Swahili, about the animals, and Tanzania - and by the end was more than a guide, but a friend. We loved our time with him and were so sad to say goodbye.

MW's tour vehicles were also by far the best that we saw on the road. They go through great lengths to ensure they are comfortable - they even have chargers! When I return to East Africa, I will most definitely be using Maasai again. I advise you do the same. You won't be sorry.

It is with reluctance that I post this review as the guides and ancillary staff we encountered in the Masai Wanderings tented camps were superb: well trained, professional, courteous, good fun and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to be with them. We saw some marvellous sights.
The problem was the cavalier attitude towards clients (clients paying a lot for th... read more

What a wonderful safari. Maasai Wanderings organised the trip according to all requests and gave even more. The whole trip exceeded any expectations we had. The two drivers we had in Kenya (Antonio) and Tanzania Chris) were extremely respectful, intelligent, knowledgeable and ethical. We were impressed with their patience of our continual questions and requests for... read more

Our group of four (family and friends) worked directly with Donna at Maasai Wanderings to customize a safari to fit our interests. From arrival at Kilimanjaro to departure from the Lobo airstrip for a Zanzibar beach stay, everything was beautifully planned. We began with an day trip to Arusha Nat'l Park to 'meet' our first wildlife and take time for a ranger-led h... read more

Our trip, organised entirely by Maasai Wanderings, was the most incredible holiday my husband and I have experienced. From the moment we arrived, everything was organised and such a smooth process. All our accommodation was 5 star and the service from staff always of such a high standard.

Our guide collected us from the airport and spent the next 7 days with us... read more

A friend recommended Maasai Wanderings for their high level of service, ease of communication when making plans, quality of guides, accommodations and value. We couldn't agree more!

Donna customized our itinerary around our daughter's schedule as a volunteer in Mwanza and our wish list for safari. The amount of time we spent intimately observing wild animals ex... read more

We have just recently come back from a week with Maasai Wanderings in the Serengeti and I have to say it was the best holiday we have ever had.

From the very start when Peter, our guide/driver collected us at Kilimanjaro, travel weary and a little unsure what we were about to encounter to the very end when Peter dropped us back at Arusha, it was magical. The mi... read more

We did a two-day wildlife safari followed by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. The trip was organized by Maasai Wanderings and they did an excellent job in every respect.

Our wildlife safari was at Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater and it only whetted our appetite for more. I hope we can return for a longer safari in a year or two. We had an outstanding guide, Ever... read more

My partner, myself and a friend were looking at going over to Tanzania we wanted to climb Kili and go on a safari, but had absolutely no idea how where, why, what would be involved.

I was trying to sort through websites and tour operators and a lot of companies had only specific dates that group tours were starting, and if we wanted to go privately, we were payi... read more
