Extraordinary Safari

Written on: February 14, 2014   |   I visited in September 2013 Jambo,

After considerable research on the Internet, reviewing several African Safaris forums and exchanging e-mails with many companies, we selected RA Safaris to arrange a 13 days safari in Tanzania for us in September/October 2013. The proposed safari brought us to Tarangire National Park, Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro National Park and finally in the Central and North of Serengeti National Park. Afterwards, we spent seven days in Zanzibar, also arranged by RA Safaris.

We have been extremely satisfied and impressed with the quality, professionalism and client focus of RA Safaris during the planning phase of the trip. Gideon, Eli & Zeph were always very fast and curteous in their responses to our inquiries.

Salim was our driver and guide during these 13 days....he was fluently trilingual in Swahili, French and English. Salim is extremely knowledgeable on the Tanzanian fauna....he can miracuously spot, over and over again, animals that none of us could see. He identified these animals and would freely explain their behaviours. He has a very good sense of humour and is very patient. RA Safaris and Salim took extremely good care of us, either during game viewing or during our stays in lodges or tented camps. RA Safaris took even the opportunity to come and see us before our transfer to Zanzibar which we really appreciated.

We saw the big five and the big nine...buffalo, rhino, elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos, giraffes, zebras on numerous occasions, and Salim took the time to stop and let us admire them, over and over again. We also saw part of the migration of the wildebeest in the north of the Serengeti.

All our expectations were surpassed. Thank you RA Safaris and thank you Salim. Asante sana.

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.

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.
