On the slopes (and more) of Kilimanjaro / Alle falde (e non solo) del Kilimanjaro.
Written on: September 29, 2015
I visited in July 2015
We are Laura and Stefano, a couple from Bergamo.
After we booked our flights, we booked our holiday in Tanzania Safari Explorers.
We had the last week of July and first of August available, so we decided to take part in a trek on Kilimanjaro and devote the remaining time to the safari parks in the north.
The corresponding Italian, Maurizio, was responsible for organizing the whole holiday getting in touch with local guides and provided us with all the necessary information by responding promptly to every request. This for us was critical to the agency's choice because in addition to the professionalism and competence, Maurizio dispelled all our doubts and misgivings.
The trip absolutely lived up to our expectations.
During the trek we were joined by John and Nyanda, two attentive guides who, with their competence and humanity, put us in position to reach the finish line area: the roof of Africa!
We’d be remiss if we did not thank the cook and the group of carriers that have softened our week at high altitude with every possible amenity.
Even in the safari the organization was impeccable. We visited, in this order, Tarangire NP, Lake Manyara NP, Serengeti NP and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
The guide and Thomas Cook Dotto accompanied us all week in close contact with nature. The days were devoted to research of animals and how to best to observe them. The nights were characterized by an endless starry sky and the exciting sounds of the bush.
In Arusha, the Planet Lodge is a village of upper-middle-class and proved to be a strategic foothold for our movements.
Special thanks to Edgar that was our reference site.
Africa good at all!
Siamo Laura e Stefano, una coppia di Bergamo.
Dopo aver fissato i voli autonomamente, abbiamo prenotato la nostra vacanza in Tanzania con Safari Explorers.
Avevamo a disposizione l'ultima settimana di luglio e la prima di agosto. Abbiamo deciso di partecipare ad un trekking sul Kilimangiaro e dedicare il tempo restante ai safari nei parchi del nord.
Il corrispondente italiano, Maurizio, si è occupato di organizzare l'intera vacanza prendendo contatti con le guide locali e ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni necessarie rispondendo tempestivamente ad ogni nostra richiesta. Questo per noi è stato fondamentale per la scelta dell'agenzia perchè oltre alla professionalità e alla competenza, Maurizio ha chiarito ogni nostro dubbio e perplessità .
Il viaggio è stato assolutamente all'altezza delle nostre aspettative.
Durante il trekking siamo stati affiancati da John e Nyanda, 2 guide attente che con la loro competenza e umanità, ci hanno messo in condizione di raggiungere il traguardo ambito: il tetto d'Africa!
Doveroso ringraziare anche il cuoco e il gruppo di portatori che hanno ammorbidito la nostra settimana in quota con tutti i comfort possibili.
Anche nel safari l'organizzazione è stata impeccabile. Abbiamo visitato nell'ordine il Tarangire NP , il Lake Manyara NP, il Serengeti NP e l'area di conservazione dello Ngorongoro. La guida Thomas e il cuoco Dotto ci hanno accompagnato in una settimana a stretto contatto con la natura. Le giornate erano dedicate alla ricerca degli animali e degli appostamenti migliori per osservarli. Le notti erano caratterizzate da un infinito cielo stellato e dagli emozionanti suoni della savana.
Ad Arusha, il Planet Lodge, è un villaggio di categoria medio-alta e si è rivelato un punto d'appoggio strategico per i nostri spostamenti.
Un ringraziamento particolare a Edgar che è stato il nostro riferimento in loco.
Buona Africa a tutti!
The organization of our trip was great. Readily-available and timely guides and escorts, beautiful and exciting landscapes and great food in Mafia Island!
We highly recommend it !!!

My partner and I organized this great trip with Maurizio of Safari Explorers. Due to its availability we could plan the trip to our needs. Personally, we decided to dedicate a day to visit the city and neighboring villages, then ... Tarangire safari, Serengeti and Ngorongoro safari.
We saw the big five and were able to make beautiful photographs and observe the ha...
When you go on a safari you imagine seeing something beautiful and special. In this safari, all of us, a group of six, were excited about the places and the number of animals we'd seen aided by the incredible professionalism of Rodrick, our driver. He is very attentive and makes you feel safe. He's got an exceptional eye to spot an animal, even if it's hidden in th...
It was a great experience, pure bliss and a real discovery visiting Tanzania with Safari Explorers.
The staff was very welcoming from the organization of the itinerary to the return home.
Maurizio was so patient and proactive with our various requests; we decided to do this experience only less than 3 weeks before the departure and he managed to organize every li...
We consider it necessary to thank all the staff at Safari Explorers for the support and professionalism, which was fundamental in us realizing our dream adventure. It was our first time at nearly 6000 meters, at the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro!
Not only did they provide all technical support, but they also had the essential equipment and tented camps.
From the first ...
A wonderful experience organized by excellent people who were always available.
Rodric, our guide, has proven time and again his competence and kindness; Maurizio and Edgar managed to make us live a fantastic adventure in the parks of Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire in the company of lions, elephants, giraffes, leopards and many others. Sleeping in the tented ...
A long-desired trip in the great parks of northern Tanzania long was achieved in July.
From the first contact with Safari Explorers the good feeling of having to deal with a team that was "listening" carefully and professionally, and aimed to realize your expectations. There was no mishap: timeliness of transfers, with Egdar which organizes in situ always carefu...
It was a wonderful adventure! My compliments to the team.
Excellent accommodation in the lodge, but really nice tented camp in the Serengeti.
We ate very well: from packed lunches to restaurants.
The car that you have reserved was absolutely suited to the situation, convenient and comfortable. With just two of us, we could do 360-degree photographs taking turns...
