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.
It has been a pleasure doing the excursions in the beautiful island of Zanzibar with Godfrey Sawe, and also enjoying Safari in the Bush, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. We have had our great safari 4x4 with open roof, we have seen a lots of wildlife, different culture ,beautiful landscape and many more that no words can express, both our guide Malisa and Saimon the cook were so amazing. We highly recommend Experience Zanzibar Tours and Safaris.
We did the classic four-day northern circuit safari with Experience Zanzibar tour. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. Our guide, Alexander, was professional, experienced, knowledgeable and speaking fluent English. He shows great respect to animals, which means giving us the best view opportunity possible without disturbing the animals. This is different from some other guides aggressively approach wild animals in order to allow their clients to get as close as possible. I also noticed that Experience Zanzibar Tour's safari cars usually take 2 to 6 clients, instead of jamming many people in one vehicle. Having fewer people definitely helped better viewing of animals and more communication with the guide. 5 star on that.
Experience Zanzibar Tours went above and beyond in making our safari experience exceptional. From the many emails exchanged with Godfrey to plan the details to the attention our guide, Arusha National Park/ Tarangire and Ngorongoro dedicated to insure we got the most of every moment, we were never let down. I hope to do more and more game drives. Asante sana!
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.
Our guide Paul, location, car, transfer, everything was great during our stay. Experienced staff was perfectly organized to satisfy all our needs. Thank you again Experience Zanzibar to make our group trip unforgettable and memorable. I will recommendation to my friend who wish to do group safari.
Since the day of the reservation to the last day of the safari trip, the agency was perfect. The safari was wonderful thanks to our guide Martin. I recommend without moderation and look forward to the next safari with you.
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!
Don't trust this company or Godfrey Sawe. He is a thief and a deceiver who steals your money without scruples. Furthermore, he saves money wherever possible (e.g. unauthorised taxi drivers). Beware of this company and Godfrey Sawe!!!
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!
