I visited in January 2016
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, Everest, and with his help saw nearly all the animals that we hoped to see and got hundreds of photos.
We succeeded in making it to the summit of Kilimanjaro and that is entirely due to the great group we had on the trek. Elias and Amiri are excellent guides and we enjoyed spending time with them and becoming friends. I can now see why "pole, pole" is the way to go! The food was excellent. It amazed me that Samwelli, the cook, could produce such good meals on the trek. Thanks also to the porters who carried heavy loads at a far faster pace than we went.
Our lodgings at the Ahadi Lodge and Bougainvillea Lodge were very good and I would certainly stay at either of them again.
Finally, Abdullie at Maasai Wanderings did an outstanding job of organizing our trek and answering all our questions. I would certainly use Maasai Wanderings again and highly recommend them.
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...
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...
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...
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...

The standard of accommodation was excellent, we especially loved Naona Moru camp an...
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...
