We create exciting East Africa adventure tours and we offer plenty of safari itineraries that suit any schedule for everyone traveling with us, from big to small groups.
My husband and I went on a 12 day cultural tourism and game drive safari in Tanzania with Overland Safaris in mid-March, 2020. The trip coordinator, William, did an excellent job of coordinating every detail of our trip from airport pick up to accommodations, park registrations and fees and any other detail that arose as we were on safari. We were able to finish our safari but could not go to Zanzibar because of the coronavirus and thus had to leave the country earlier than expected. We booked with William a few other activities including hiking to one of the base camps on Mt. Kilimanjaro. He went over and above to find us lodging when many places were closing down because of the virus and looked up information for us regarding finding flights to leave the country. Our safari was everything we had hoped for and more. We saw so many animals in every park and a total of 140 birds. We never would have seen all the animals and birds had it not been for our guide/driver, Richard who had an eagle eye. He was also a wealth of knowledge about the animals and birds and afterward had the field guides ready to show the finer details of immature animals and birds or different breeding plumage, neck sacs etc. We also learned so much from him about the parks, the people, the country and politics. He was also an excellent driver navigating gullies and mud from earlier rains and fording rivers. We always felt safe and our Land Cruiser was very comfortable, and we spent a lot of time in it! Our accommodations were first rate and luxurious with all the staff very kind and helpful. The food was always very good including the huge box lunches we got every day. Our Land Cruiser was well stocked with water for our long drives. Overland took care of every detail and we wanted for nothing. We would definitely book another safari with Overland Safaris. We so enjoyed William and Richard and loved Tanzania. They do truly deserve a 5 star rating on every aspect.
Trust Willy & Richard to give you the best experience. They will go EXACTLY by the itinerary if that is what you would like for them to do. But in Africa - and with wildlife in particular - sometimes going off script is the best way to go. These guys are experts and I would trust them to call an audible if that's what they think would be the best experience.
