7 Day Tanzania Wildlife Safari We're from Australia and I found Tanzania Destinations on Instagram, when we planned our trip we consulted with Elias who answered all the questions we had (a lot) and also accommodated to us changing our minds as to what tour best suited us without hesitation. At the airport we met our driver and Tour Guide, Goodluck who definitely brought the luck. He was extremely knowledgeable in all the questions we had throughout the tour. Thanks to him we were able to see The Big Five (Elephant, Wildebeest, Rhino, Lion and Leopard) and we even witnessed The Great Migration, for those of you who are animals lovers this is a big deal and it was definitely a life changing experience. The food was amazing and although we went during wet season we hardly experienced rain during the day and not one mosquito which was great. I would highly recommend Tanzania Destinations!! You will be in good hands!

Amazing Kilimanjaro day hike with incredible tour guide We had a fantastic experience with Tanzania Destination. The pre planning was amazing and flexible. We we guided up the mountain with Fredrick who had fantastic experience and we learnt so much on the way. We were not prepared for the rain but Fredrick was over prepared and had some gear for us when the rain got really bad. Tip - please listen to your tour guide, if they say pack something, do it! We will use them again once we decide to climb the full mountain. Video blog of our trip on Instagram - @leiadominique

Tanzania Хотели бы поблагодарить ребят из компании tanzaniadestinatoin! Организация была отличной. Учитывая, что мы были с детьми, сафари было на высшем уровне. Особенно впечатлил отель между двумя сафари (Ngorogoro Forest). Это было впечатляюще! Хочется возвратится туда ещё раз 😁 дети в восторге! Ребята молодцы! Наш гид Иса - красавчик - сделал все в лучшем виде! Успехов вам!

Amazing Tanzania Tour with Tanzania Destination When I was still in the pre-planning stage of my Tanzania tour during the pandemic where travelling was such a challenge, especially travelling to Africa.. Everyone says NO including my family. Being a solo traveller was an addition to the hesitation. However, after getting connected with Tanzania Destination over Instagram, half of my worries seemed like gone. Right from the way they customised the itinerary Considering my needs, timely communications, professionalism yet friendly behaviour, to the fair well departure. One of the best experiences I had with them. Brian and his team arranged 3 days safari, 1 Day trekking to Kilimanjaro (Mandara base camp), 1 day duluti forest hiking and tour to hot springs, 2 days to Zanzibar.. all of that was fantastic. Thank you Brian and the entire Tanzania Destination team and their business partners for the wonderful trip. 😊

An absolutely amazing experience!! We had a brilliant 5 day safari with Tanzania Destination. We visited Lake Manyara, the Serengeti and Ngorogoro crater. From the start Elias was very prompt in his replies to all emails and we received a very professional service. We had a private tour which was not that much more expensive and well worth it. Our driver, Izekiel, was fantastic. He was driver, guide, mechanic and much more. The scenery was absolutely stunning and the number of animals we saw was incredible. We saw all the big five (including rhino!!) and much more besides, all at close quarters. The animal sightings far exceeded all my expectations. The accommodation was fantastic, especially the Katikati tented campsite which was a real highlight. All food was delicious and we were treated extremely well at all the lodges/campsites. The vehicle was in excellent repair and obviously well maintained. We had one minor mechanical fault which was dealt with quickly (within 10 minutes!!) and professionally. Overall the safari was everything we dreamed of and more. We were well looked after from start to finish and had an absolutely magical experience. There were no hidden costs and it was well worth the money. I was very impressed with all aspects of the service we received from Tanzania Destination and I would highly recommend them.

4 Day Safari (Tarangire, Serengeti & Ngorongoro) I did a 4 day safari with Tanzania Destination and everything was excellent. It is a very serious local agency and Elias and Bruno were both always asuring that everything was ok. My boyfriend and I had a great time camping inside the parks and we had a chef that prepares really good food. I fully recommend this agency!
