THE trip of a lifetime!

Lyndawhitefield
Visited: Aug 2016 Reviewed: Aug 26, 2016

We spent 8 nights on a Northern circuit safari in Tanzania and it was just incredible!
Our guide Muba was excellent.....he always seemed to be in just the right place at just the right time for spotting wildlife! He was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient....THE perfect guide!

The standard of accommodation was excellent, we especially loved Naona Moru camp and Escarpment Lodge was sheer luxury!

The vehicles are very spacious, but do show signs of wear and tear....hardly surprising when you see the state of the roads/tracks in the parks especially the dust and rocks in the Serengeti! The vehicles are also equipped with refrigerators and charging points....great when your camera battery is about to die!

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Maasai Wanderings....if (when!) we return to Africa they would be our first choice!
Asante sana, Maasai Wanderings.

Maasai Wanderings puts together a spectacular safari that I'll always remember. Driver/guides knew everything and could find anything you wanted to see.

We stayed at Nasikia Luxury Camps which is a sister company of Maasai Wanderings. Accommodations for 5 star and dinning was right up there at the top.

I highly recommend Maasai Wanderings to anyone planning... read more

Incredible Safari adventure

We had been thinking about a safari for several years, and in January decided to use Maasai Wanderings based on a friend's recommendation. The experience was incredible. We saw an unbelievable variety and number of animals including lions, zebras, elephants, hippos, cheetahs, leopards and buffalo.
