          In the early morning, we will collect you from your hotel in Arusha and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park encompasses the northwest bank and part of the alkaline Lake Manyara which itself rests in the Great Rift Valley. The park is perhaps best known for its flamingos, pelicans and cormorants but it is also the home for a few hundred other species of birds; it is therefore a paradise for ornithologists. Next to a great variety of birds, the “Big Game” can also be seen. With a bit of luck you might see elephants in the wooded regions and with even more fortune the tree-climbing lions. Indeed, it was thought for a long time that the Lake Manyara National Park is the only place where lions can be found with this atypical behaviour of climbing trees. Baboons and vervet monkeys are also found amongst the forested areas and in the more open spaces, giraffes nibble at the fresh leaves while the various types of antelopes common to the region browse for tasty shoots. After a picnic lunch, there will be more time for further game and wildlife watching before it is time to return to Arusha

          Best Company in Tanzania
          My husband, grandson and I wanted to use a local company for our Tanzanian safari and after researching options on TripAdvisor, we settled on Rupia Adventure. I’m grateful that we did. Rupia Adventure provided exactly the type of safari we sought and we had a most amazing and wonderful experience. We were able to completely customize our itinerary, so we stayed exactly the amount of time we wished in each of the four national parks we visited and were able to choose our accommodations in each of the locations (2 tented camps and 2 lodges). Our stellar guide/driver was perfect – professional, experienced, reliable and hospitable. The four of us in his Land Cruiser were a team for the duration of the safari, he handled everything perfectly and his knowledge was truly encyclopedic. Our grandson commented more than once that we never asked him a question that he didn’t know the answer. He always guided us to terrific photo locations and arranged the schedule so that we were there at the right time for the best light. The beautiful trip pictures we have are in large part because of him. Our trip truly was perfect for us and our gratitude is boundless to all the Rupia Adventure staff involved with it. This experience always will be one of the jewels in our travel crown.

          Memorable Safari
          I never dreamed our safari would be as awesome as it was! And thanks go to our Rupia Adventure driver/guide - Mirage. Mirage seemed to have an intuitive sense when it came to finding animals...even the elusive ones, like the rhino, cheetahs, and leopards. He has been a safari guide for 23 years, yet he seemed genuinely as excited to see the animals as we were! We saw pretty much every animal living there; we saw the Big-Five many times over! Zebra's, wildebeast, giraffe, hyenas, lions, cheetah, leopard, rhino, hippo, elephants, birds of all kinds, warthog, fox, turtle, crocs, monkeys, and more! We saw animals eating other animals, animals fighting, playing, sleeping, eating, and animals mating. If you are going to Africa for a safari and want a guarantee that you will see lots of animals, then book with Rupia Adventure ...and ask for Mirage!

          Summit Successfully
          Just back from my greatest adventure ever! Everything was organized so nice and smooth I can’t even think of things to work on. Matt, the owner of the company, is a great person and will do everything he can to sort out any problem even if it’s not related to the trip itself... My friend had an issue with his passport and Matt did everything to help him... The trip program was very great including the sites we have visited. Camp life was a bit rough for us, but at the end of the day it was a good experience (especially in comparison to other camps we saw on the mountain). The food was fantastic... the chef knows how to prepare real soul food just like home! The greatest was our mountain guide Gideon...I highly recommend him, he has lots of knowledge and experience and many many stories to tell... thank you again Gideon and thank you to Matt as well.

          A Life Changing Safari with Rupia Adventure
          In Four Days, we covered three National Parks and too many animal species to count. Our group of 12, transported in two safari vehicles, must of hit every spot in Northern Tanzania. Ten Lions, Thirty Hippos, Four Hyenas, Thirty Ostriches, a Cheetah, a Leapord, Fifty plus Giraffes, Countless gazelles, wildebeest, and Zebras, and much more.... As this is my third Safari in Africa, I recognize that one of the most critical choices is to engage the company that has the best drivers, as you will be spending long days with them. I cannot recommend Rupia Adventures more highly for a life changing experience

          Another Excellent Safari Experiences!
          My family and I went on a safari in northern Tanzania this summer. Our trip was more than what we expected, thanks to the experienced and knowledgeable advice of our tour consultant, Matt and our tour guide, Nico, aka “Bush Baby” Matt was very helpful in setting up a customized itinerary for us, which focused on places we wanted to visit, animals we would like to see, and level of accommodations we would like to stay; and a guide who is the best for traveling with family with young kids. All these exceeded our expectations, and “Bush Baby” was a right fit for our family to have such a great safari experience. Everything went perfectly all the way so I cannot do more than recommending Rupia Adventure big time!

          Excellent Safari Company, Excellent Safari Guide, Excellent Service
          Just completed an extraordinary 8 day tour in Tanzania arranged by Rupia Adventure. Traveling with our 11 year old daughters and Mirage, our incredible guide. Amazing sightings so far which include the Wildebeest migration and stampede, lioness hunt and four (!) separate Leopard views. Lions with cubs and of course, hippos zebras giraffes and all the rest. Never a dull moment we saw everything we hoped to see and much more thanks to Mirage's expertise and vast knowledge of Tanzanian wildlife. Communication was easy due to his excellent language skills and he has a wonderfully broad knowledge base about the culture and history of Tanzania. This feels like a National Geographic tour. I will add that the roads on safari are really rough and we saw many many vehicles with flat tires. We never had an issue as Rupia Adventure is extremely vigilant with the upkeep of their tires and vehicles. This is an important consideration as you can lose a lot of time when dealing with flat tires. It was also clear that our guide Miray has a good deal of mechanical expertise should any problem arise which was reassuring. Accommodations were all excellent, huge comfortable beds, wonderful views and great food options. we will return and book a trip with Rupia Adventure and Mirage again!

          Thank You Matt and Marr For Lifetime Adventure
          I would 100% recommend using Rupia Adventure for your Safari! Before we booked, they were incredibly responsive and clarified many of our questions, which allowed us to tailor our Safari plan and choose the best hotel options together with them. Then, and most importantly, we had an amazing guide - Erasto! Erasto is incredibly knowledgeable about the national parks, the animals and the overall environment. You can really tell he studied all of this at a university level, and you'll come out of your experience learning a TON about the wildlife in Tanzania (as Erasto put it - he'll transfer you 100GB worth of info). Erasto is also incredibly flexible on timing, deciding when to stop to have a break and more importantly he is great at spotting animals! He saw leopards in trees ages before we did of course, and always made sure we drove to get the best angle for each picture. He also speaks frequently with other guides to make sure he knows where the rarer finds (e.g. rhino or leopard) are hiding out. Would 100% recommend doing the Safari with Rupia Adventure and Erasto, we had a wonderful experience He can do safari tours in Spanish and French as well, ours was in English Also we thanks Matt and Marr the owner of this company. Thanks Marry & Jacob from UK

          Mount Kilimanjaro 100% Summit Successful
          This was an experience of a lifetime! We booked Rupia Adventure for our honeymoon based on their great reviews, and were not disappointed. From the beginning, we received excellent service. Our consultant, Janniken was extremely kind and patient despite me changing the schedule multiple times. She was very flexible to fit within our budget and added so many gears to our adventure. Our tour guide, Emanuel and Gideon, was absolutely outstanding. They are kind, knowledgable, patient and had a great sense of intuition for the best trek. We would recommend them 100% and they are the reason for us returning to Tanzania. Asante Sana

          Cheating company
          Very bad company, cheating on your money, give you the wrong bank account number and won´t transfer the money back. Took it 3 times the money. Not picking up the phone anymore. Bad cars. bad equipment. The guides where also very unexperienced.

          Tour operator with unreliable equipment and trust issues
          Having booked a family safari trip, we were provided with a malfunctioning vehicle. Indeed, the first thing we did after being picked up at the hotel in Arusha was to go to the mechanic to fix the gear....a full morning lost...shameful and not professional at all to be greeted with a non-conforming car... Afterwards, when accessing Manyara Park, we were informed that the entrance was blocked due to severe rain. This is understandable. What is not acceptable is that Rupia kept the USD300 of the ticket entrance and, until today, did not return the money....shameful and again not professional... I definitely not recommend Rupia and, in particular, found that Matt did not honour his word. Bad omens for a tourism business...
