About
Tanzania is the land of safaris, the Africa of documentaries, of the most famous parks and protected areas in the world: the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Selous Reserve, Ruaha. A quarter of the national surface is a park or reserve, in no other African country is it possible to find such a variety of environments and habitats and such a wealth of fauna. The famous Great Migration of the Serengeti has as its protagonists around one and a half million wildebeests and half a million zebras, in constant search of pastures and water. It is the largest natural phenomenon that affects different areas of the vast Serengeti ecosystem. Between July and October the large herds of migrating wildebeest and zebras gather in the North of the Serengeti, it is the time to be able to witness the epic crossings, the scenes that we have all seen in documentaries. Witnessing the great migration is the best experience you can have on safari in Africa.

        One word: AMAZING
        Making the safari was one of our dreams but we did not imagine that it would exceed our expectations. Our local guide, who speaks Italian, was very well prepared and thanks to him we saw a lot of animals. Rocco followed us in the organisation from A to Z, responding to all our needs. Highly recommended.

        5-star rating for Safari Crew Tanzania!
        We recently returned from a safari in Tanzania booked with Safari Crew. A customized 7-day itinerary (29/7 - 4/8/2023) for our group of 6, with exclusive jeep and guide and accommodations in lodges and tented camps. From the very first contacts, Rocco, the owner of Safari Crew, proved to be very efficient in the organization and attentive to our preferences; prompt and precise in answering our questions, he was our point of reference from the beginning to the end of the trip, which went on in the best possible way, with no unforeseen events, everything as agreed, allowing us to fully enjoy this adventure! A special mention also goes to our guide Emmanuel, professional and friendly, who accompanied us throughout the safari, making every effort to let us see as many animals and species as possible.

        A good safari experience is made so by a ranger like Jerimiah.
        We really enjoyed the trip.Our ranger Jerimiah who works for ranger safari in Arusha went above and beyond to share his in depth knowledge of the region.We enjoyed some rate finds on safari and got to see the big 5.

        a big thank you, ASANTE Safari Crew!
        We’ve had the most amazing trip. It’s definitely been our top 1 holiday ever. Our safari included Arusha (1 night) Tarangire National Park (1 night), Ngorongoro Crater (1 night) and the Serengeti (3 nights), then we flew from Seronera/Serengeti to Zanzibar. Choosing the right outfitter is of crucial importance when booking a safari… it can be a daunting decision… so many operators out there, so many options… booking directly with an unknown (despite extremely well reviewed) company can be a big question mark but Safari Crew and Rocco put us at our ease from the first contact. The all team made a great job since the beginning: an intense e-mail exchange followed by some whatsapp calls gave us all the elements to narrow down the different options, the result has been a perfectly customized safari. All went well, I’d say above our (high) expectations: the itinerary was carefully planned, all the lodges cand camps we stayed at have been amazing, and so was our guide Anate. The parks are amazing, game is abundant, it’s a stunning country, but the service provided by Safari Crew definitely made the difference. A big thank you, better ASANTE to all the guys at Safari Crew.

        We don’t want to leave!!!
        It’s our last day on safari, heading to Jro airport and just don’t want to leave! We fell in love with this Country, its amazing parks, its people. We had the experience of a lifetime, thanks to the impeccable organization of Safari Crew. 5 days of full immersion in the African bush with an amazing and knowledgeable guide, the itinerary was just perfect, all the lodges and camps were beyond our expectations. The whole trip has been spotless, Rocco and his staff are great professionals. We would do it again even tomorrow, always with Safari Crew Tanzania.

        Fantastic sighting of the migration in 2021
        It was nice to be lucky enough to be there, especially during this time and peacefully enjoying all these sightings. I started with the Ngorongoro Crater, I had the pleasure to enjoy all the animals without the noise of cars, after I spent a great time following the migration in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Safari Crew is the best organization, best guides; not only for Tanzania but also for amazing trips I have done with them earlier in Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Rwanda and Uganda. Asante sana! Tullio

        Safari in Tanzania
        Very good service with a full understanding of our needs. We spent 5 days in the Safari (Tarengire -> Ngorongoro -> Ndutu -> Serengeti) with very good guides speaking several languages (including French). Our contact at the agency enquired many time if everything was alright and we were able to ask for any request. Have done several Safari in Tanzania and Safari Crew was perfect

        Safari Crew simply the best
        I did not expect Safari Crew to be so well prepared and attentive to every single detail of our trip. We had the amazing opportunity to visit Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Eyasi in 5 days. We combined the safari with the exploration of different local tribes getting the opportunity to taste a bit of history of this amazing country. Rocco, the owner of the company, is simple the best; he was always there whatever we needed, ready to last minute changing programs, trying make our trip unforgettable. Our guide, Naftal, was extremely friendly and his spotting animals skills were simple amazing. We wouldn't have seen a cat without him. Safari Crew is a locally based company and they really know how to make things working. We couldn't ask for a better solution!

        Fantastic 7 days
        Tanzania is a beautiful country. We visited Arusha nd Serengeti area for 7 days in Feb 2020. Though it is long flight from Boston, the journey is worth it. We visited Arusha, Manyara lake eserve, Ndutu, Serengeti center and Ngorongoro Crater. In reserve parks, animals are everywhere and our guide made sure we see all five big ones and other animals and birds. Frankly I felt so guilty of disturbing the everyday life of these beautiful animals. These animals are so comfy in their natural environments. You never know what you will see. We came across a female tiger caring for her cubs, lions sleeping under the tree, sleeping on a branch in the tree and scouting ground for a kill, Zebras crossing the road in a line and sleeping while standing in groups of four to stand guard against any attack. Spotted Rhinos and Leopard, Elephants blocking a road and grazing in a group, monkeys and Baboons. Your guide knows where to take you for viewing animals. Crater is an ecosystem in itself and you come across Herbivores and Carnivores. Somehow i found lions here a bit more relaxed, and as my guide commented that yes they are relaxed because they have their grocery store (animals) right next to them. Can go and shop (kill) any time. True but funny. Arusha and country west of Arusha has a strong presence of Christians, though along the sea coast it is more Muslim. There is also a very interesting division of land. Masai are free to live and move in Ndutu area but are not allowed in Serengeti. We saw hundred and thousands of Wildebeest and Zebras in Ndutu with their little ones grazing and getting ready for the big migration as the summer comes in. We stayed in Sopa and Serena lodges. Beautiful and well maintained. The customer service is commendable and food is best. The wifi is not available in sopa lodges but we were staying very near to the main building and had wifi. Last but not least, Tanzania is a poor country and depends heavily on tourism income. People go above and beyond to make your trip a memorable experience. Bottled water is available everywhere and we used anti malaria medicine during the trip. You will enjoy this once in lifetime escape and if you plan to shop, you should bargain as much as you can at African Galleria on your way from Lake Manyara to Ndutu. The items are heavily overpriced and one may get discount up to 75 to 80%. They insist on cash payment. Enjoy.

        Safari tour: lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire
        The organization was perfect, since the booking phase where Rocco was very helpful and he recommended the best tour for our short stay and even though we decided to have this trip only one week before the departure, Safari Crew was able to find very comfortable lodges and connections from and to the Kilimanjaro airport. Our guide Isaac Taylor was amazing! He brought us throughout this incredible country with his experience and kindness, he gave us the opportunity to live a stunning experience that in the end was even above our expectations. We felt part of the wildness and we got amazed by the beauties of Tanzania. Thank you Isaac for everything, we will never forget this trip. Safari crew highly recommended. I hope to see you soon. Ciao Marco & Barbara

      At the beginning of July 2019, I wrote to Safari Crew Tanzania and a number of other T.O. members of ATTA for a two-person, 15-day safari beginning in August 2019, with already fixed flights from and to Europe. As I had already been in Tanzania, I asked for a tailored private safari including both northern and southern circuits to see some places I already saw and adding new ones.

      After a few e-mails exchange, the Safari Crew competitors proposed us patched itineraries directly taken from their standard safaris, resulting in useless intermediate stops and in a not well structured trip. On the contrary, the Safari Crew Director first proposed a phone call in order to deepen our requests and analyse the possible alternatives and difficulties; after a number of phone talks, he sent us an itinerary. Though a bit more expensive, the Safari Crew proposal (1 day Lake Maniara and Ngorongoro crater, 2 days in central Serengeti and 3 days in northern Serengeti, 1 day in Lake Natron, 3 days in Selous G.R. and 3 days in Ruaha N.P., including internal flights and only one intermediate night in Arusha) was well balanced and tailored on our needs.

      Malaki, the guide we had in the northern circuit, was always attentive to all of our practical needs and also very smart during the safaris: he has a very good knowledge of the animal behaviour and could spot them at incredible distances. He knew exactly where stopping the car to wait for the animals to approach us. Kahimba, the guide from Mdonya old river camp whom we had in the Ruaha N.P., also had an incredible sight and was always attentive; he has a deep knowledge of the whole park ecosystem and is particularly fond of elephants: he let us see and understand many details of their behaviour that we did not imagine although we already had many safaris. None of them tried to save his time cutting the drives in the afternoon and they both did their best to satisfy our expectations. This should be the standard, but does not always happen.

      We are satisfied about the safaris and all the operator services although the whole price is definitely too high. However, this can hardly be ascribed to Safari Crew. Rather, it is a consequence of the high, disproportionate costs of all safari-related services in Tanzania: entrance fees due to the State, accommodations, excursions, and so on.

      A truly memorable experience, meticulously planned by Safari Crew Tanzania. The experience went far above our expectations.

      We have been to Kenya before and we enjoyed every bit of it, but the trip to Tanzania has been the experience of a lifetime.

      When booking the trip, our contact was Mr Rocco, the director of Safari Crew, we had the pleasure to meet him before and after our safari. He’s a real expert, passionate about his job and runs his company in such a way that all the staff have a sense of belonging and commitment in their profession.. We also visited his office on our last day, on the way to the airport. He has always been quick in responding the dozens of mails, ready to amend the itinerary to adjust it according to our requests.

      The rsult was a perfectly designed 9 day/8 night private safari just for the two of us through Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti (including the extreme north, an area interested by the great migration between July and September) and Tarangire.

      Once we arrived the service was amazing from start to finish everything was carefully planned. Our Guide, Saidi, has been more than a guide, a baby sitter, a professor, a great driver, attentive to our needs (the car was perfectly clean every morning, after hours on dusty roads, even when we stayed in tented camps). He was incredibly knowledgeable about all the animals and their behaviour. He could spot game at incredible distance. He was extremely friendly, discrete and knew the routes just like we know the roads of the city we live in.

      All the lodges and camps where exceptional, perfectly located, comfortable and cozy. We loved the luxury tented camp experience. All the camp staff made an amazing job providing excellent service in extreme locations.

      We saw everything and more, uncontable species of animals, we had the chance to see two river crossings on the Mara River: breath-taking.

      This is simply the best safari tour company. They just get everything right. We couldn’t hope to get anything better.

      Asante sana Safari Crew Tanzania! we will definitely come back.
