2 days on safari in Tanzania

Views: 255 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Aug 03, 2017

We had two days safari. First day we were in Tarangire NP and second day in Ngorongoro Crater.

Breathtaking landscapes and amazing wildlife viewing both days.

Marjeta W. helped us organize the tour and we are very happy that everything went well.
Marjeta was so fast in responding on our questions and she has responded to all our desires. So first of all: thank you, Marjeta.

Our driver Dickson J. was waiting for us for about 1 hour i... read more

Couldn't have been better

Views: 480 Visited: Nov 2016 Reviewed: Dec 07, 2016

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 after the safari. The safari itself was perfect. Additionally, Natasha helped one of... read more

Ngorongoro Crater

Views: 433 Visited: Oct 2015 Reviewed: Jan 29, 2016

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 is very experienced, friendly and knew his ways around at the crater!
There was ... read more

Fantastic safari and Kilimanjaro climb

Views: 369 Visited: Aug 2015 Reviewed: Jan 02, 2016

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 managed to locate those leopards! His easy laugh and laid-back attitude made the ... read more

Best trip ever!

Views: 281 Visited: Dec 2015 Reviewed: Dec 28, 2015

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 there to answer all our questions, very friendly, suggesting whats they think i... read more

An unforgettable experience

Views: 324 Visited: Jul 2015 Reviewed: Aug 24, 2015

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 questions we had before and after we chose them as our safari provider.

In Afric... read more

Trip of a Lifetime -- We experienced it all!!

Views: 382 Visited: Jun 2015 Reviewed: Aug 17, 2015

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 we could stop and watch for as long as we wanted. There was no rushing! Also,... read more

Awesome safari in Tanzania!!

Views: 297 Visited: May 2015 Reviewed: Jun 19, 2015

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 safari company who arranged things (Shadows of Africa) and our guide (Richard).... read more

Thrilling trip for young and old!

Views: 449 Visited: Jan 2015 Reviewed: Feb 22, 2015

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 within hours from Stacy (in California) and that was the beginning of a beautiful f... read more

A brilliant safari experience

Views: 346 Visited: Nov 2014 Reviewed: Jan 08, 2015

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 Shadows of Africa had carefully vetted all lodges & hotels to ensure they met qual... read more

Want to go back again

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 having dinner in the Serengeti, we could hear lions talking to each other in th... read more

Unforgettable Vacation - Kilimanjaro and Safari

Views: 448 Visited: Nov 2013 Reviewed: Dec 03, 2013

My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks in Tanzania, all arranged by Shadows of Africa. What can I say, this trip has certainly become a trip of my lifetime. Kilimanjaro climb was well organized; we had a nice team guiding us to the top. The guide Rashid, was very motivating and keeping it positive in challenging moments when I was about to give up on the way to the mountain. For this I am sincerely grateful as in other circumstances I wo... read more

A Truly Memorable Experience with an Outstanding Safari Company

Views: 395 Visited: Aug 2013 Reviewed: Oct 08, 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 -- ther... read more

Memorable Safari with Shadows of Africa

Views: 1007 Visited: Aug 2013 Reviewed: Aug 28, 2013

I just returned from the four day standard Tanzania Express safari with Shadows of Africa and can not say enough good things about the memorable experience. We visited Tarangire, Serengeti & Ngorongoro and saw countless wildlife; hippos, lions, flamingos, hyenas and even leopards in a tree. Our driver was beyond knowledgable about each animal and the area. There was no question that could stump him, which just made the experience better. Plus,... read more

4 Day Tanzania Safari

Views: 387 Visited: Aug 2013 Reviewed: Aug 27, 2013

Hi - I was on a Safari Tour with Shadows of Africa in and around Arusha recently. The tour was outstanding and we enjoyed some very special memories. Our driver, Timo was a total animal and wildlife expert!! He knew everything about every animal and went off the beaten track to ensure we got the best views of as many animals as we could! We headed to the Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro and saw hundreds of animals! The food was plentiful an... read more
