RA Safaris made our African safari incredible!

Written on: February 07, 2014   |   I visited in January 2013 My husband and I had the pleasure of traveling through Tanzania with four wonderful guides, and I have to say - I think that the guides really made the trip for us.

They were literally a walking, talking version of Google. I'd ask myself out loud, "I wonder why the zebras and wildebeast travel together?" and out comes a thorough explanation from our drivers! There was almost nothing they didn't know. All of them were not only polite and friendly, but incredibly well educated and knowledgeable.

My husband and I are bird people, and they tailored the trip to our needs. They would drive well out of their way to take us to a places they knew would have exotic species, and then proceed to tell us everything about them!

We also discussed life in Africa, politics, their families - you name it. On safaris, it is easy to only learn about the animals and wildlife, because you are very far away from people and cities. Driving with RA Safaris, we really got a good glimpse into their opinions, beliefs, and culture. The best part was that we all watched the Arsenal football match together - I left feeling like we had made four new friends, who I hope to visit again soon :)

We are definitely coming back to Tanzania, and we will be calling RA Safari to lead the trip!

RA Safaris are a locally owned company who go out of their way to make your safari experience a memorable. There is personal attention and the cook and driver/ranger look after your every need. Selehle, our ranger went out of his way, his knowledge of birds was no 1. He never seemed to tire with all the driving and the horrendous roads and kept a smile on his fa... read more

Words cannot describe the amazing safari adventure we experienced.
Our guides were the BEST and provided such knowledge about the most beautiful land I have laid eyes on. Countless memories were made and I will highly recommend RA Safaris to anyone thinking of embarking on this trip of a lifetime.
I have never left a vacation so anxiously wanting to return. read more

This is perhaps the best journey we (my wife and I) have ever had. We had not had enough time for comparing different agencies and worried about the quality of the agency we chose at first, but our worry proved unnecessary. The consultant was very helpful in making a enjoyable, game-rich itinerary and receiving us in Tanzania. The driver-guide, Omary, was nice and ... read more

We just recently came back from a tailored made safari throughout Tanzania's Northern parks. We had chosen RA Safaris because they answered our tour expectations, responded very fast to our requests and were fairly priced.
Our group's expectations (we were 5 seniors) were met by a great organization and flawless work done by the GEZ team and by our guide Elly, who... read more

Zeph and Gideon are very friendly and gracious, and took care of all our transfers. Our guide, Salehe, was superb! We enjoyed getting to know him. He is extremely knowl... read more

Planning the safari
We had our private guided tour for 10 nights 11 days from Dec. 25th 2014 to Jan. 4th 2015. We chose RA safaris among hundreds of tour operating companies and besides many Japanese affiliated companies because they offered us 1)a quick mail response 2) clear explanations on mails 3) a fair tour cost.

1) We live a busy life. It is exciting to... read more

My wife and I performed a safari in Tanzania last August. Starting from Arusha, and the guy (Eli) get us on Kilimanjaro airport. We have visited Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti. We stayed in luxury lodges and in fantastic tented camps.

We had an excellent 6 night trip with RA Safaris in July of this summer. The team was very helpful with planning and patient with our questions. Zef met us right off the bus, and was a friendly welcome to the trip.
Our guide Edward was awesome - very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We really enjoyed our time with him.

The accommodation and food were basic, bu... read more
