We had a great 5 days safari with Experience Zanzibar Tours & Safaris: Tarangire, Lake Manyara,Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
Godfrey Sawe has been extremely useful for the preparation of our trip, with very good advice and very fast answers to all our questions. Our driver / guide Andrew was extremely good: fluent English, knowing all the great places where to see animals and able to spot them from very far; very well connected to all guides around to be aware of all big cats around, and finally very good & safe driver! Our cook J4 was also very good and efficient. So overall would highly recommend Experience Zanzibar Tours & Safaris!

We had the most fantastic holiday with Experience Zanzibar Tours & Safaris. The first night we stayed at Safari Lodge which was welcoming and comfortable before travelling to the Tarangire National Park (stayed at Tarangire Sopa Lodge - again, spotless, comfortable and very welcoming). After leaving, we drove to the Serengeti (stayed 2nights at Serengeti Sopa Lodge) following which we travelled to Ngorongoro Crater (staying at Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge. All accommodation was spotlessly clean, the staffs were very attentive and the beds were comfortable.

Our driver and guide, Paul, was absolutely exceptional. He took great pride in making sure that we saw absolutely everything possible within the time scale we had. He was always courteous and polite and his knowledge.

We spent the day in the crater and saw 4 of the big 5. The rhinos at a distance. We saw a leopard the evening before on the drive to our lodge so that made the whole 5.
Amazing place. I hope it never changes.
The highlight was having lions walk past our land cruiser.
The view from the edge of the crater at the lookout is spectacular as well.

Thanks for everything Experience Zanzibar Tours! Not only was our climb with you perfect, off the mountain you have become our friends. You've cared for us like family and we will be forever grateful for what you've done for us. Protecting us in Arusha & Kilimanjaro, having fun in Moshi. Your team is the best. Guides Aaron took our group of amateurs and made us the first up the mountain with no altitude sickness. Food was great and everything was as discussed in our quote. They were also the best price we found out of 10 other companies. Superb!

We haven't been to Tanzania before and have been feeling very excited our holiday. We started to read lots of reviews from travel web sites but couldn't get satisfied information about really how to plan our 9 day.
Then we found Godfrey from Zanzibar Experience Tour. He kindly answered all our questions and come up with solutions patiently. Finally he presented us the schedule of our holiday including 2 days safari at Mikumi, 4 days at Nungwi beach and 2 days at stone town.
Godfrey and John, our safari guide, were waiting for us, when we arrived in Dar Airport. We drove 6 hours to Mikumi National Park, which is an amazing natural beauty. We had chance to see lots of animals, learned about them and watched the daily life. It was a lifetime experience.

Thank you John for your friendship, kindness and safe driving. On highway it needs great driving attention, thanks to him we had no problem.
From Dar, we took a ferry to Zanzibar and with a-hour-drive we arrived Nungwi which has incredible beach and tide vision.
Amaani Bungalows was enough to get by, but the room has some bad smell. We eat delicious seafood on dinners. Also enjoyed tropical fruits.

Later while going to stone town, we give a short break for spice tour and learned a lot about spices and fruits. The same day, we took a boat to prison island in order to see giant turtles.
We enjoyed the narrow streets of Stone Town and felt the sincerity of African people.
In the morning, we set to swim with dolphins which is a great experience. Then the captain took us to snorkeling but it was too short because of coming rain.

Tell your captain not to take his phone with him or you may stay there for short time.
On the way to stone town, we give a short break at Jozani forest and saw red monkeys there.
As a consequence, we had a great experience at Tanzania thanks to Godfrey. We recommend Zanzibar experience tour to anyone. We will definitely come again.

Mikumi was so great!!! Safari Blue day-trip was one of the highlights of our holiday - the combination of dhow sailing, snorkeling, swimming, dolphin spotting, seafood feasting, fruit tasting and mangrove forest exploring made this the ultimate all-in-one excursion showcasing the best of Zanzibar!

The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. it is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Maasai tribe.

Like everyone traveling on a budget, it was quiet an experience to visit lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, Oldavai gorge. To be able to see lions, zebras, leopards, black rhino and many more incredible animals.

Our guide and Godfrey were very informative and answered our hundreds of questions tirelessly, even sometimes answering the same questions over and over again.

Our accommodation was a combination of lodges and tents. KatiKati Lodge was superb in all respects! Godfrey got us home safely from Arusha to Zanzibar, Very professional in every way.

Thank you for taking such good care of us!
