Again, amazing trip by Simba Safaris

Written on: August 01, 2016   |   I visited in July 2016 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, my guide was already waiting for me. Even late in the evening, Nairobi is a very busy city (and lots of traffic). He brought me to the Jacanda Hotel, a very and nice hotel.
Simba works together in Kenia, Centurion has good guide/driver and cars too. With the guide I came to the elephants and the Mara Serena Lodge--beautiful lodge with more than beautiful view. During the first game drive I saw the migration already. Mara is a very nice place to be. From Mara I fly to the border, by bus cross the border and by plane to Lobo, where my TZ guide was waiting. It was the same guide I used the other 3 times who was waiting for me. A hearty welcome of course.
North Serengeti is completely different from the rest of Serengeti and I got to see a pangolin! One of the rarest animals to see. The animal was found near the lodge and my guide came to me, Marian come on a very rare animal, you have to see! Later we also saw a python and of course many of the other animal. I had again a wonderful time and its not to explain but feel complete fine in Tz. The last days i was in Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge, 3th time and last year I got a nice shawl so that there should be something was possible. But now, it looks i am the queen! Very good lodge. On my room flowers, a plate of fruit, a welcome card, and also with dinner as special guest and as desert a big cake with Karibu Marian.
Simba you made my dream again, sure with help from the lodges to and the both very good guides (special in Tz Joseph again) on my request. Hope to make in around 1.5 years to come back for the 5th time!

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

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 st... 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
