“Tanzania national parks are amazing” - Jovery

Unforgettable Custom Safari with Kilipeak

Views: 141 Visited: Aug 2020 Reviewed: Aug 25, 2020

My wife and I celebrated our 15-year anniversary while on Safari with Kilipeak Adventure. We were a bit hesitant to go ahead with our plans because of the pandemic, but we took the chance, and I am glad we did. The hygiene protocols in the entire country were pretty strict, with everyone wearing masks and sanitizing hands before every interaction.

We had researched several tour operators before deciding on Kilipeak Adventure. Our interaction with Abel sealed the deal for us. He was extremely professional in all our communications, and the company's policies are very friendly. We were particularly impressed with the transparency in their pricing. They were the only company to itemize guiding and accommodation charges. They are also very flexible and were able to accommodate two last-minute change of plans:

1. Our international airline cancelled our original flight, and we ended up arriving in Dar es Salaam instead of Kilimanjaro one day earlier. Abel suggested alternatives to get us back on track and save our trip at pretty much the same cost.

2. We loved the safari so much that we decided to extend it one more day. Abel make sure to make arrangements with Coastal Aviation to depart from Seronera, Serengeti one day later.

The safari itself was amazing. Gilliard is one of the most energetic, cheerful, and lively people we've ever met. I sincerely think our safari experience would not have been the same without him. I think he really embodies the spirit of "hakuna matata" -- a worry-free and problem-free philosophy that will really help you leave all your stress at the door and enjoy the ride. Aside from his amazing upbeat personality, Gilliard must have binoculars for eyes. He was able to spot animals from unbelievable distances. I have 20/10 vision, and was barely able to keep up with the aid of my camera's zoom. He is a very good teacher though, and by the end of the safari, my wife and I spotted several animals by ourselves.

Thanks to Gilliard expertise, we were also able to witness incredible and extremely rare action in the parks: a cheetah hunting a rabbit, a leopard taking a Thomson gazelle up a tree and then losing it to a hyena, a pride of lionesses attacking a buffalo, and a black rhino charging a park ranger's jeep (thanks Gilliard for your patience in finding the rhino).

We are already planning our next safari, but we'll work our dates around his schedule to make sure Gilliard. is the one guiding us in our next adventure.

Thank you Gilliard and all of the Kilipeak Adventure team for such an amazing and unforgettable experience!
