A Truly Memorable Experience with an Outstanding Safari Company
Written on: October 08, 2013
I visited in August 2013
What can I say? Shadows of Africa knocked it out of the ballpark. Even though I was booked into the "standard" package, most of the amenities and camps would fall into the luxury category IMHO. Our guide Timo really knew his stuff providing info such as life span, mating habits, predators, average height and weight and even unique anecdotes about everything from the smallest bird to biggest of the Big 5. He's a great animal spotter too -- there were times when we were scratching our heads thinking, "How did he manage to see THAT?"
Owner Natasha checked in daily via phone to make sure we were happy. Overall 10 out of 10. Would definitely book with them again.
We took a three day safary in Tanzania. Everything went exactly as planned. We were greatly satisfied with all the steps, starting with the affordable prices, the flexibility in designing a tour fitted to our interests and the very detailed information sent by Jake.
Once in Arusha we found a very warm reception. Natasha, the owner, met us twice, before and afte...
I chose to go on a 1 day safari to Ngorongoro crater in the last minute, through Shadows of Africa. My experience with Jake in coordinating the schedule was outstanding. He made every attempt to make the schedule work. The email responses were very prompt.
The safari itself was awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Richard was my guide, he i...
I can't say enough about how great our trip to Tanzania with Shadows of Africa was. From start to finish, everything was handled professionally. Our trip began with a five-day safari in Lake Manyara National Park, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with guide Siriko and cook Silvanos. Siriko was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We still can't believe how he m...
Shadows of Africa was our tour operator for my husband and my first Safari in Tanzania. We had the best experience and the best trip of our lives. We knew Tanzania was the place to be, but this was above all expectations. The place is magical, but what makes a good trip is who you deal with, and this company was so professional from the beginning to the end. Always...
This was our first trip to Africa and we went in with very little knowledge of what to expect. The folks at Shadows of Africa (Stacy and Jake) were extremely helpful throughout the process, and also very patient as we considered our options and revised our plans a couple times. They quoted a price, gave us full details about what to expect, and answered all the que...
We took our six children, ranging in age from 22-7, on a 10-day safari through Tanzania. We visited many national parks (The highlight being the Serengeti) and the Ngorongoro Crater, which is teeming with wildlife. One of the days in the Serengeti, we counted about 50 lions in all that we saw!! We loved seeing the babies of the various animals, and the fact that...
In late May, my family (husband, son, myself) visited several natural areas in Tanzania for a safari. Arranged as a 4 day safari, we visited Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Serengeti National Park. While in the NCA we also visited the Leakey museum. It was simply an awesome experience, thanks in large part to the...
While planning a 3-month multi-country trip with my granddaughter, beginning in January, I felt at a loss at where to begin to find a wildlife safari to kick off our trip. Turning to the Internet, I began to read top reviews for Shadows of Africa, so decided to contact them first, expecting to wait a few days for an answer as it was a weekend. The response came wit...
I've recently returned from a four day safari experience with Shadows of Africa Tours. From start to finish my group and I were treated to a flexible and enjoyable trek through Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorogoro Crater.
Our group opted to sample a range of accommodation options during the trip, but from the budget to the heights of luxury - it was clear that Sh...
Recently back from a 2 week trip in Tanzania. I can't say enough good things about my time there. Shadows of Africa planned an absolutely amazing safari and helped put together an awesome side trip to Zanzibar. The entire trip, down to each tiny detail, was flawless.
Not only did we see all of the Big 5, but we saw them several times throughout our safari . While...
