          Simon made the trip a 5 stars!!!
          the best experience I could have had. It's not just about going on a Safari, it's about having a guide who knows the behavior of the animals so that one can see what we did: lions reproducing, attempted lion hunts, and the 5 animals! Simon is without a doubt the best guide we could have ever had, he has a unique energy and always made us feel safe. Tanzania marked my heart.

          Great safari provider with helpful agent and jeep driver
          We travelled with whole family including a 3-year old kid. Get to know the agent Renata online via whatsapp and she is super helpful and reply to our messages even at midnight. Our safari driver is Isaac who is very experienced and helpful. He managed to show us all the animals we want to see. It's really amazing! Overall it's great experience with Safari Soles and will recommend to friends.

          A truly amazing experience
          I had such a great time at the waterfall. Baltazry my tour guide (and diver) was amazing. The day started with a pick up from my hotel in Moshi. The company is based in Arusha and it was good that I didn’t get charged extra for Moshi pick up. After pick up we headed straight to Materuni falls, it was about a 40min drive then 45 min trek to the falls. We took our time enjoyed nature and when I got to the waterfalls the views were breathtaking. The company provided walking stick and also water boots (which was a life saver as it was pretty muddy on route.) After the waterfalls in the same area I was treated to coffee making coupled with singing and dancing. It was really great. We then headed to the hot springs. But not before we stopped off at a Tanzanite shop, I didn’t buy anything initially was wasn’t sure but Baltazary was kind enough to return after the hot springs. The Kikuletwa hot springs were really fun. Such a good vibe. Perfect mix of locals and tourists. With April being off season meant that there were not too many crowds. Baltazary allow me to spend as long as I want with not interruption. All in all it was an amazing experience I will definitely recommend

          Dream safari! Exceeding all expectations!!
          There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our experience was with safari soles. It was PERFECTION! Simply amazing from beginning to end! Our process of planning was thoughtfully managed by Innocent, who tailored our four-day safari according to all of our wishes. He stayed in communication with us, prepared us for the safari and made sure every detail and logistic was taken care of smoothly; he organized our ideal itinerary and answered every question. I felt very confident going into the trip because of him, and immediately felt I could place our trust in safari soles. I was traveling alone with my son, and there was no concern or nervousness because every single step of the way the people at safari soles took care of us and made sure we had the most incredible safari imaginable. Most importantly, Estomii was the guide who was with us for four days and he made every magical moment possible. Thanks to Estomii, every day was absolutely incredible. He made sure we saw all the animals in each area we travelled, he was fun and kind and knowledgable and patient and a joy to be around. I can’t sing his praises enough - Estomii is such a fantastic guide and person and he gave us a safari experience that was beyond our wildest dreams. Safari Soles was very professional, warm, responsive, safe, thoughtful, and organized - I can’t believe how fortunate we were to have them giving us this dream experience. Their attention to details in all things (the incredible food, accommodations, even the charging stations and plenty of water in the truck) was all on top of having an extremely skilled and knowledgeable guide (Estomii) who showed us the majestic animals in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater. Every moment was more impressive and beautiful and amazing than the one before. Huge thanks to Safari Soles! Especially Estomii and Innocent for an unforgettable adventure that we will never forget. This has to be the best safari company in Tanzania, and Estomii is the best guide, for a safari experience that exceeds every expectation and is a trip of a lifetime!

          Safari Soles is the best!!!! Book now! So warm and fantastic from start to finish
          We really have had the best week of our lives thanks to Safari Soles! To start Boniface was just such a pleasure to deal with, I knew the moment we spoke that it was Safari Soles I would book with. I could feel his warmth all the way in London! He has been just fantastic- from the time of booking to us arriving he really did take great care of us and made changes to suite our family without it ever seeming an imposition. He booked us in breathtaking lodges, truly amazing. We also made a change whilst on Safari and Boniface arranged everything so quickly, This lead us on to Alias who in our house now will be known as the Safari King 👑 We have been on Safari before and it wasn’t just that we saw the big 5 which we have previously it was the way in which Alias took such good care of us all. He was so happy, calm and informative thought the five days. We really feel so lucky that we got to spend time in the company of such a lovely person. The safari itself could not be topped- cheeta, so many lions, so many elephants, giraffes, hyenas, a python, baboons, buffalo’s, flamingo, leopards and that illusion rhino. He made sure we were all well fed and it really was the adventure of a lifetime. Lastly Andrew has been epic, what an experience to spend time making coffee and enjoying the company of the wonderful villagers. Andrew again made the whole day magic from start to finish. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best time, we will forever be in love with Tanzania ❤️

          Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, and Lake Victoria with Innocent
          We did a 7 day tour including the Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, and Lake Victoria. We were picked up at 2:30 in the morning by Chief who brought us to Arusha for a brief sleep. He picked us up the next morning and proceeded to entertain us with stories while he took us all over Arusha. He was a fantastic guide. The next day we were picked up by Innocent and headed to the Ngorongoro crater which is not to be missed. The first thing we saw was a female lion in a tree before we even entered the crater. It is hard to describe how amazing and mind blowing the crater is. So many animals. A huge male lion walked right up to our truck. The next three days were spent in the Serengeti where the zebra and wildebeast were migrating. We stayed in lodges and tents right in the wilderness. Innocent did a wonderful job taking care of us and explaining what we were seeing. We ended our trip on Lake Victoria where we saw hippo in the lake. Innocent ensured that we got to the airport on time even though he had never been to Mwanza. I highly recommend Safari Soles and Innocent as a guide.

          Delightful Experience
          I had a great time. Andrew was my tour guide. He was timely and pleasant. I was able to take some nice photos. I really appreciated the fact that the company had rain jackets, boots and hiking sticks readily available. The lunch was very good and the coffee making experience was a delicious delight.

          Tanzania Safari
          My partner and I did a 2 day safari tour, our guide was Estomih. We visited Tarangire and Ngorongoro crater. Estomih was the dream tour guide, we could not have asked for more. He was so easy going, fun and had extensive knowledge on the local area and wildlife. We felt incredibly safe with Estomih’s driving on some very difficult roads. We had some delicious food and saw tons and tons of different animals. Knowledge 5/5 Driving 5/5 Energy 5/5 We were really pleased to have supported a locally owned business :)

          Cannot miss!
          This experience was fantastic! Our guide Andrew was very informative and engaging. Our tour was on Easter Sunday, and Andrew suggested we go to the hot springs first because it was likely to be overcrowded in the afternoon, and boy, was he right! Just as we were leaving, a ton of people showed up. The coffee tour was so cool! Justin and his family were phenomenal! We got to see the whole process and even help. And the coffee was delicious! The hike to the falls was gorgeous, and the falls were absolutely breathtaking!!! 💯 would recommend!

          Amazing Arusha Day Trip
          This day trip was the perfect way to experience Arusha and the Kilimanjaro area. We saw a stunning waterfall, learned about coffee with a delicious tasting, and had a fantastic lunch with vegetarian and nut-free options. Our guide, Andrew, was incredible – knowledgeable, friendly, and a great photographer! He made sure we had an amazing time and captured awesome memories for us. We swam in a beautiful swimming hole in the afternoon – the perfect ending to a perfect day! Highly recommend!

        Mount Meru is often called Kilimanjaro’s little brother and while that may be true from an elevation point of view, it is steeper and less traveled than Kili. We had an amazing 4 day trip with our guides Sam and Eli who we organized through Safari Soles. For our family of 4, we had a supporting crew of 12 people, guides, porters, cooks, and our armed ranger who made sure we were safe from the Cape buffalo who are in the woods along the trail.

        The hike is challenging but doable. It’s not technical and on days 1 and 2, we hiked for 4-6 hours to get to the huts where we slept and ate dinner. On day 3 (summit day), you’re up and going by 1am and after about 9 hours, you’ve reached the summit and are back at the saddle hut. There you take a nap and get some food before descending that afternoon to the lower hut. It’s and exhausting, but rewarding day. On day 4, you have a leisurely 3-4 hour walk down past a waterfall and through a beautiful area where we saw giraffe, warthogs, buffalo,monkeys, and more.

        It was a fantastic experience for us all. Sam, Eli, and the whole crew were experienced, attentive, and supportive throughout the trek, making sure we were prepared for each days challenges and serving delicious meals along the way.

        Bryson at Safari Soles helped us set up the trip and was instrumental in helping us navigate some self-induced complexity as we had a flight scheduled out of Kilimanjaro airport the same day we came off the mountain.

        Big thumbs up to all involved!
