Perfect Safari

Views: 163 Visited: Mar 2018 Reviewed: Mar 20, 2018

Coming to Africa and doing a safari has always been a dream for us and, since we are from New Zealand and it's such an effort to come here, we wanted to do it right. Upon reading the reviews for African Traits we decided to go with them, and were delighted with how everything turned out.

First of all, Godfrey's communication has been fantastic right from the start. This is our first time in Africa, and had an enormous amount of questions fo... read more

On top of Mt. Kilimanjaro! (Machame Route)

Views: 237 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Sep 05, 2017

During my stay in Tanzania, I got to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro through Godfrey and his company, African Traits. Although I was not well-prepared, Godfrey thankfully organised for me to borrow the gear without any hassle, and soon I was at the entrance to the Machame route for Mt. Kilimanjaro, ready to go.

During the hike, the guides John and Anderson kept us entertained with lots of useful information about Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Tanzania in gen... read more

Kilimanjaro and Pangani Beach - best trips from Arusha!

Views: 164 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Aug 16, 2017

I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with African Traits on the Machame Route for 6 days. It was such a great experience, made so special by the team of guides, porters and cooks without whom getting to the summit would be impossible! I cannot imagine being better looked after.

Another fantastic trip was a 3-4 day trip to the Leshoto mountains for a hike, followed by beach bumming at Pangani beach. It was beautifully secluded, and we had a beach bun... read more

Amazing tours- Moshi and Pangani beach

Views: 149 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Aug 16, 2017

Godfrey's tours are unique, well-organised and an experience not to be missed. The guides were informative and friendly, and we had a great time. These tours are a perfect addition to a safari or Kili climb. I cannot recommend Godfrey and African Traits highly enough. read more

Amazing 2-day cultural tour of the Marangu Village

Views: 187 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Jul 27, 2017

I went on the 2-day Marangu village tour with two of my friends from New Zealand. Godfrey took us on the tour.

We started with a visit to the Marangu Gate at the base of the Mt Kilimanjaro, where Godfrey explained to us the geography and history about this world-famous mountain.

We then visited the picturesque waterfalls to appreciate its natural beauty, followed by a visit to the coffee farm where we were shown how the coffee is produce... read more

Zanzibar, Moshi and Tarangire

Views: 272 Visited: May 2017 Reviewed: Jun 13, 2017

African traits was recommended to me by a few people I was staying with in Arusha, so I decided to give it a try... BEST decision! All of my guides were very welcoming and accommodating. Godfrey especially stood out to me, he had a positive attitude about everything, and was willing to do just about anything I could've needed! I am extremely pleased with my overall experience, and highly recommend African traits to everyone. read more

Moshi tour, Zanzibar and Tarangire safari with African Traits

Views: 203 Visited: May 2017 Reviewed: Jun 02, 2017

Godfrey had been highly recommended to me so I booked the Moshi tour with a friend and Godfrey along with our tour experience went above and beyond any of our expectations. Due to our amazing Moshi tour experience, I stuck with African Traits for all my other excursions, which was a week in Zanzibar, and a one-day Tarangire safari, both of which were amazing.
African traits prices stood out as being the most reasonable for what you receive... read more

Traveling to Tanzania? Utilize African Traits for exceptional and unforgettable service!!!!

Views: 301 Visited: Mar 2016 Reviewed: Dec 13, 2016

My wife and I we're referred to African Traits and utilized them to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. This was the best choice we made during our month trip to Tanzania. We communicated with Godfrey through email and by phone and I must say my generalization of Tanzania is that everything is slower and takes longer. Not with Godfrey, he always responded quickly to the many questions we had, professional, courteous and personally provided transport from... read more

The best experience I've ever had, physically and emotionally

Views: 387 Visited: Oct 2016 Reviewed: Dec 05, 2016

Words can not express how grateful I am for African Traits.

I did the 7 day Lemosho Route to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
I would strongly advise anyone and everyone to go with African Traits. This company went over and beyond for me multiple times, especially before, during AND after my hike was finished. I first learned about this company through word of other people who went with them. I am from Canada and wanted to go through a loc... read more

Climb of my life!

Views: 330 Visited: Jan 2016 Reviewed: Dec 04, 2016

I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro with African Traits, Godfrey provided comprehensive information about the climb and was very fast at responding to emails. It can sometimes be hard to trust a company half way across the world but he put me at ease with his professionalism.
The guides on the climb spoke excellent English and made us feel very safe. I was climbing as an individual so Godfrey joined me with another small group of people which worked re... read more

Fantastic safari: Serengeti and Ngorogoro

Views: 268 Visited: Nov 2016 Reviewed: Dec 02, 2016

A group of 5 of us booked a 4-day, 3-night safari trip with African Traits. We were collected in Moshi and taken through Arusha to the Serengeti on day 1, where we enjoyed an evening game drive. The second day was also spent in the central Serengeti, with extensive morning and evening game drives. We stayed at the same campsite both nights we were in the Serengeti. African traits provided tents and camping mattresses. The toilet/shower facilit... read more

Amazing Tanzanian experience

Views: 303 Visited: Nov 2016 Reviewed: Dec 01, 2016

We spent 2+ amazing weeks with Godfrey and the African Traits Team. We started by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho Route over 7 days. The entire team of guides, cook, and porters were friendly, professional and extremely competent - the food was a particular highlight! (also our entire group summited!)

We then went on a 4-day safari through the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. We particularly ap... read more

Serengeti & Ngorogoro with African Traits

Views: 231 Visited: Nov 2016 Reviewed: Nov 27, 2016

We had the best time on Safari with African Traits. Godfrey is fantastic - he is very professional but also friendly. He listened to what we wanted out of our safari and created a perfect experience for us. We were a group of 5 friends travelling from Australia. We went on a 4 day / 3 night safari to the Serengeti (2 nights) and Ngorogoro crater (1 night). Our guide, Benny, was incredibly knowledgable - we couldn't ask him a question about any... read more
