First things first I'd have to say that this tour would not have been so memorable had it not been for a fantastic local guide - Nazareth was fantastic! Informative, friendly, incredibly helpful and cordial. Tours in Dar Es Salaam are not that cheap if you compare them with places in Asia or Europe even. But I'd have to say... More

Coordinating the trip with Shafina was a pleasure. Our driver (Alben?) arrived at precisely 8am at our hotel. He drove us 6 hours to the park in a Toyota Landcruiser. We stopped for lunch at a nice restaurant along the way. Although the highway was crazy he did not drive crazy. Our tour around the park was excellent. He did... More

We took the decision to book a safari with Waterbuck after reading the opinions on TA. It was absolutely perfect! We requested an offer view months before we arrived; Waterbuck (thanks to Shafina) organized everything - started from airport transfer on arrival to DAR till pickup from the airport after safari again. The recommended camp (Serena Luxury Camp) exceeded our... More

I was very impressed by the punctualityand friendliness of the staff for our trip. My only disappointment was there was no opportunity given to go early to see the cats. The accommodation at Tran Swiss Lodge was clean & comfortable. We did see many, many animals and the guide and driver were fabulous.

Tanzania : it has become one of our most memorable vacations. Ruaha River Lodge and Selous Luxery Camp, those are the places to be! Both are completely different and both are very, very recommendable. Go south... to less crowded areas and let the tourists go to Serengeti & Kilimanjaro ;-) I like to thank Waterbuck Safaris for their impeccable organisation.... More

While all the arrangements were made online, I visited their office and they were so friendly and hospitable. Just awesome service!!! The prices quoted were... More

We booked a last minute trip late March (beginning of the rainy season) and went to Mikumi national park for the weekend. We had a great experience, our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, also connected with the other guides so he was able to take us to see a lot of animals. We saw lions on both days,...

Our goal for the trip was to learn about the culture of Dar es Salaam, visit a local school and interact with the students, visit a hospital and have a brief safari.

My sister and I travelled to Tanzania and did the safaris at Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, followed by four nights in Zanzibar and two nights in Dar. Gulzar and Nurez put together the trip for us and I cannot say enough about the planning. The trip went without a glitch and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Our driver/guide,... More
