A lifetime experience with RA Safaris

Written on: March 11, 2014   |   I visited in February 2014 We booked our seven-day safari with RA Safaris in Tanzania online; using nothing more than e-mail!! Always almost immediate response with all the information, advice and patience you need to make the right choices and decisions!! It felt like "our wish, was their command"... Everything seemed to be possible.

The friendly, enthusiastic, experienced and patient staff managed to put together a great safari for the three of us at a very good price! They even booked an internal flight for us, for after the safari!

A big safari-jeep, just for the three of us. The experienced, English-speaking guide (named Salehe), was a very friendly local, with a great sense of humor, who not only knew almost everything about flora and fauna, but also always managed to find the wildlife we wished to see. When we only saw a vague dot in the far distance, he recognised the rhino and proved to be right!! Unbelievable!! He made us feel very comfortable, safe and welcome to Tanzania!!
We were very lucky and even met the president of Tanzania at the entrance of Serengeti National Park!!! He even shook our hand, how about that!!!

The tented camps and lodges were fantastic and its staff even better!! Very friendly and helpful. Also the food was very good and there was enough choice to suit everybody.
At the end we had seen all the animals we hoped to see and even more, at very short range. Sometimes you could almost touch the animals, which, of course, was not recommended!!!
In short: a lifetime experience in beautiful Tanzania, thanks to RA Safaris and of course thanks to our great guide Salehe R. Mgongolwa!!!
Thanks very much guys!! "Asanta 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.
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. The trip was so exciting, for sure the perfect organization of Gideon, Eli and Zeph has deeply contributed... read more

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
