Selous Game reserve is the largest protected wildlife area in Africa, due to unique ecological importance this pristine uninhabited area was declared as “World Heritage Site” by United Nations in 1981. It is Africa’s greatest conservation area and covers a wide variety of wildlife habitats including Lakes, open grassland, acacia and Miombo woodland and riverine forests, which help the reserve to boast Tanzania’s largest and most important population of Elephant, Buffaloes & Wild Dogs. The topography of the park varies from rolling savannah woodland, grassland plains and rocky outcrops cut by the Rufiji River and its tributaries. Game drives along the edges of the lakes, river and bushes are an extra attractive conjuring up a special magic as the sun goes down over the lakes.

        Incredible experience with big cats
        It was our second time going on safari with tailspotters and once again we were not disappointed! We saw so many lions again including some up close and..ahem...intimate moments! Also saw two leopards including one setting up for a hunt- just magical. Santiago's experience and understanding of the animals behaviour means you get an incredible experience. Can only recommend!

        Great experience in Mikumi National Park
        I had a really great trip to Mikumi National Park with Halifa. He’s a very friendly guide and taught me a lot about the animals and the nature of Tanzania. He knew where all the different animals were and showed me around the park. We saw a lot of elephants, giraffes, impalas, zebras, wildebeasts, buffalos, hippos and even a pack of lions! I would definitely recommend going on a game drive with Tail Spotter Safari! It was an experience I’ll never forget.

        Marvelous experience in Ruaha National Park
        Santiago is a wonderful person before than a great and very professional guide. We spent some amazing days with him in Ruaha National Park. Thanks to his hawkeye and huge experience we could spot most of the wild animals present in the Park, included lions and chitas! More than suggested for your best safari experience!!

        Best tour guide
        We definitely have one of our best time travelling to Mikumi with Santiago. This guy is just amazing and so friendly that we felt we knew him for years. His kindness, availibility and knowledge was the best we could not even expect for this trip. We strongly recommend to enjoy Mikumi with Santiago as he is simply the best. Elias and Alyssa

        Trip of a lifetime!
        Santiago brought 10 of us on a brilliant 3 night trip to Tarangire National Park, Ngorogoro Crater and the Serengeti in July 2014. We met Santiago that summer in Ifakara and he really went above and beyond for us. He helped us plan all of our travels, brought us on an amazing safari, brought us hiking to Udzungwa and literally packed us and all of our bags onto the TAZARA rail and made sure we made it back to Dar es Salaam. Santiago is a wonderful guide - the perfect combination of being extremely knowledgeable and always up for a laugh! I 100% recommend him and his company!

        Dream Safari with Santiago
        I was lucky enough to tour with Santiago in 2014. Santiago went above and beyond each day we were with him. Not many guides will stop and buy you road side avocados and mangoes (the best you've ever tasted!), will help you with the rest of your stay (booking trains, getting from rural Tanzania to Dar) and be counted as a friend six years later. I have recommended Santiago to anyone I know going to Tanzania. They have all had the same excellent experience. He is a knowledgeable guide and a great companion. Thanks Santiago!

        Unforgettable experience with an outstanding guide
        We are Bruni+Klaus from Munich, and with our guide Santiago we had the best Safari ever. Spotting the unspotted, this is exactly what happened during our 4 brilliant days with him. It was amazing to see how he was spotting every single animal around whilst driving us safely through the wilderness. We could feel his passion for his business and felt safe with him all time. His knowledge about the animals and his ability to predict their behaviour is just unbelievable. We will never forget these 4 wonderful days in a different world, far from civilisation, but full of adventure.

        Amazing, 10 stars
        We spent 9 days and went on safari and did hikes in Ruaha, Matema, Mikumi and the Uluguru Mountains. Santiago has a real passion showing everyone the magic of Tanzania. He really understands the ecosystems and animal behaviour so will show you things no one else does and he makes every moment really fun. Don't play the tractor game with him because he will win.

        Brilliant experience
        Santiago provided a great safari for our group this summer! We saw all of the big 5 as well as many more fascinating animals and wildlife. Santiago and his colleagues were very knowledgable and accommodating and made our experience even better than expected. Would recommended Tail Spotter Safari to anyone!
