My first trip to Tanzania with Simba Safaris Ltd 2013

Written on: December 23, 2015   |   I visited in February 2013 I get to make my dream reality. I'm off for 8 days to Tz, walking in Serengeti, Ngorongoro. A dream I have already many years. In the evening I arrive on Kilimanjaro airport and when I come out the departure door I see already my name. I walk to my guide and he takes my luggage and we go to the car and to my first overnight Moivaro lodge.

The next morning we start the safari and Joseph tells me the rules in the parks what to do and more what not to do. First Tarangire NP, lots of elephants. So nice and so big, lots of Thomson gazelle, amazing to see.

Then on to Ngorongoro Crater. Sometimes I can hardly believe I am there. In a few days I have already learned lots about wildlife. I had lots of questions and got all the answers. It's more than amazing. Every day I feel more at home in TZ. I was travelling alone, there was supposed to be an American woman with me but she fell ill and I was travelling alone. I can only say it worked out for the best, as I really enjoyed travelling solo. I can take all the time in the world.

I also like flowers and we look in books for the Latin name otherwise I cannot translate in Dutch. Every evening we look for the names and I write it in my dairy. I can only say, everything was more than marvelous and I never feel unwelcome. Everything was well-arranged: the lodges were very good, my guide was more than good and saw everything, even a Nile monitor lizard in the grass.

When we had the evaluation in Arusha, I could not find one thing that was not ok and I also said, there is so much more to see, that I will come back, which I've already done...twice. I'm coming back again in 2016, again with Joseph.

I had the pleasure of going on a safari to Ngorongoro Crater and I would say that the whole team of Simba Safaris went well beyond our expectations right from the start to finish in every way. Below are a few of the things that stood out.

1) Their booking staff was very attentive and glad to customize my safari experience. Once they knew I was coming with my 2 k... read more

This is the 4th time I booked with Simba SAFARIS LTD. On this trip, I wanted to see also the migration near the Mara River in Kenya. My wish was to see the migration, go to the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, go to places in Serengeti I’ve not already been to, and go to the Crater. With few mails Tz-NL and back we had the program.
When I arrived in Nairobi, m... read more

With the evaluation last year I already said I come back. There are so many other places I will visit, from your site no problem. I contact again the Dutch company and had few question to change in the program. Not easy and so on and after several emails it was possible, no problem. The Dutch company did not like it so much, but we made it happen. Also a wish from ... read more
