When we decided to take a trip to Tanzania, we have many options to visit when we checked online and tried to find out a tour operator who can guide us the perfect place to visit and where not to visit.

We came across many when we try online. But when we send mail to asking help in finding proper package for Tanzania, the first reply we get from Mr. Bartho of Serengeti Wakanda Tours and Safaris and immediately after few mails interchanged, he sent us the serengeti safari which also includes the Tarengire and Ngorongoro Crater in 5 days package.

We also shown interest in Kilimanjaro trekking for which he recommended and offered a day trip with very good price package.

We got very good Driver cum Guide Mr. Elia and a chef especially for our group of 5 members with a wonderful pop-up roof top 4X4 vehicle with window seat for all to enjoy the best view of wild life in all these National park for five days with free binoculars for the trip. He is very good guide with lot of knowledge about the park route and lot of information about the park, animals, birds and local tribes etc etc. No end.

From the Chef Mr. Solomon, All 5 days of the safari trip, we had very fresh food cooked freshly by the chef and he used bake bread using his own charcoal used oven designed by himself. very nice fresh bread in the breakfast you love it with honey, bread spread and jam. We thanks to our chef for his delicious food.

What else you need in a safari trips, very good spacious tents, hot water for bath in some places in the forest area. In the whole, the trip is out of the world able to see all animals expected and unexpected as well due to experience of the guide/driver Mr. Elia. Thanks to him.

The one day trekking trip to Kilimanjaro was also well organized with the guide Mr. Edward, we enjoyed the trekking even though we were not able to achieve what we suppose to but no regret we enjoyed the fullest with the proper lunch break as it was our fault that we were tired due to our travel schedule and not prepared well for trekking.

In Total, I strongly recommend Wakanda Serengetti tours and safaris

We had a great Safari with Wakanda, we booked the 5 day budget tour to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro and we saw more animals than we possibly hoped for or expected, including three rhino! And the landscapes were so beautiful. We are so happy with our experience.

The organisation by the manager Bartho was so great, he personally responded via WhatsApp quickly and friendly and made booking the safari so easy! We felt like we were in great hands. He also came to personally meet us when we arrived in Arusha to brief us.

All the accommodation was clean and comfortable during our safari with very friendly staff. We had three days in budget lodges and one day camping.

The Safari vehicle was spacious, well maintained and comfortable which was important for long rides.

The food from our cook Solomon was excellent. We ate so well and enjoyed all of our meals. They were really delicious and Solomon was very friendly and happy every day! We enjoyed talking with him a lot.

Our guide Moses is a very friendly and sweet guy. He was so great at spotting animals and getting us to the best spots to watch and take pictures which was great! he also stopped anytime we asked and stayed later if we saw something interesting. He respected the park rules at all times which we really liked as we saw some other guides driving off road/ speeding and disturbing the animals but he was very respectful. He answered all of our questions about the animals when we asked. He maybe could have provided a little more information about the animals and landscapes along the way but we saw so many great things that we didn’t mind.

We would recommend Wakanda for a Tanzanian safari!

Thank you!

Excellent safari with once in a lifetime experience. Everything was extremely well organised . Our guide Andrew was an amazing guide with knowledge of all the national parks, animals and Masai culture. Great sense of humour.
Our cook Dulla was a perfect chef coming up with delicious dishes.
Those two were perfect combination.
Andrew knew where to find all the animals. We were so lucky to see the big 5 ⭐️
I do recommend Serengeti Wakanda Tours as a perfect organiser of our safari.

We booked a trip to Tanzania for January 2020, with the main objective to go in a safari. After reading the reviews, we concluded that the best option was Wakanda Safari with the "5 days budget safari trip", so we would have enough time to enjoy the parks.
We landed in Arusha city one day before the trip start and Bartho, the owner of the company, picked us up from the airport. We spent the first night at Arusha tourist inn, which is a nice accomodation for every tourist in transit. During the trip we slept 2 night in a budget lodge and 2 nights camping (what an experince!!! My personal favourite was the night spend in Ngorongoro, the view was the best!)
The next day we met our driver Jackson and our chef Dulla. We traveled with 4 more people in the car: a smart belgian, a cool american and 2 nice swedes.
Our guide-driver Jackson knew the best places to spot animals, even the rarest ones such as cheetas and leopards; he was trully amazing as he saw the animals from far distance, without binocculars!! He explained a lot of interesting things about wildlife so the whole car ride was a pleasure. He gave us the time to admire the animals and the surroundings without rushing. Besides being an excelent driver, Jsckson did his best to spot the Big 5 so a big thank you to him! Also, a nice surprise for us was that it was baby season :).
Unlike other tourists who were eating sandwiches, we always had tasty cooked food( rice, meat, vegetables). Dulla is an amazing chef, we loved his dishes and appreciate his efforts as we always had at least one main dish and always dessert and fresh fruits. Imagine cooking pie and fresh bread in the middle of the park, fantastic!
Last but no least, Bartho was very responsive and helpful. He went with us to exchange money and gave us nice tips about where to eat ( try Kami caffe, it was Bartho's recoomandation and it's a really nice place with good food.You should try the fresh smoothies!) and what to do in the 2 days spend in Arusha. He also gave us a ride back to the airport and even helped us renting a car for Zanzibar.
If you don't know what to choose, we highly recommend Wakanda Safari! The team is amazing and you will surely have an amazing experince.
Thank you guys for everything!

The best Safari tour in Tanzania! We were due to start our tour on Tuesday morning but had arrived on Monday morning without our luggage. We had done a separate tour of Arusha on Monday when Bartho came to give us a detailed plan of the tour on Monday evening. When we told him the airline had lost our luggage he called some people at the airport to ensure our luggage was going to be found and smoothed over the logistics for us. Very comforting considering the people we dealt with at the airport were less than helpful at the time!

Tuesday morning we were up bright and early and made our way to Tarangire National park with our driver Chedi and cook Sule. Both were such fun to talk to and Chedi was especially knowledgable about all the animals that we came across. On our way back from Tarangire to the hotel we stopped off at a gas station to see another car pull up with our luggage! Bartho had managed to sort out the logistics of getting it to us and that really helped us ensure we had a great holiday.

Wednesday we drove to Serengeti National Park and stayed there until Thursday afternoon. During the time in Serengeti, our driver Chedi made the most of his network to get insights to where the best things were happening in the park. We managed to see almost everything you could wish to see on safari. We saw cheetahs feeding on a kill, lionesses with their cubs doing the same. A leopard in a tree with a dead antelope among many other things!

Thursday afternoon came and we then made our way to Ngorongoro National Park. On the way to Ngorongoro we had expressed an interest in visiting a Masai camp. Chedi was all too accommodating and ensured we went to one on the way! Although the Masai camp was not really for me in the end it was great to experience it.

Overall we had the best time with Wakanda safari tours. Chedi was an amazingly knowledgeable, experienced driver who really listened to what each of us in the car wanted to get out of the day and tried tirelessly to make that happen for us. A special shout-out to Sule, our cook, for all the fantastic meals he provided us with during the tour. Bartho is running a great service with Wakanda Safari tours and you will not regret giving these guys your hard earned money. We had the best time and will certainly be coming back to book another tour with them in the future.

I went on a 5 day Serengeti camping safari during the last week of January 2022. It took me a while to pick a Safari company but finally settled on Serengeti Wakanda. They had good reviews and I figured the value was great compared to the other Safaris I had been seeing so I thought to myself, Eh, What the hell. Why Not. I reached out to Wakanda and was instantly impressed. First off, Let's talk about the owner; Bartho. He reached out to me personally and answered any and all question I shot his way, and there were quite a few. He is an awesome guy, professional, fun, polite. Overall. 5 Star dude. He even took it upon himself to set up a meeting with me after my Safari had concluded as he wanted to meet me personally, I'm not sure if that's because I was special or because he takes it upon himself to meet everyone his company takes out. Either way, it was great.

If I could describe my entire experience out on my Safari in one word, it would be Perfect. I must say however, that most of the reasons it was perfect was because of variables that would be different for everyone who goes out. The luck we had with the animals, the group of people I was randomly put with on my Safari, The driver and cook we got randomly paired with, the fact I was lucky enough to have my itinerary modified for an extra day on the Serengeti, the weather, and many other facts that all came together to make the Experience perfect. These are all variables that differ from time to time, The one constant that I can identify that helped make the trip as good as it was, is the company itself: Serengeti Wakanda. When I was out on the Safari, we spoke with a few other Safaris we ended up camping alongside. Every single time I spoke with other people I kinda looked away and the end of the conversation thanking the gods I randomly selected Wakanda. Some other companies cram more people than are comfortable in the vehicles, some companies have more roguish Safari behavior, other companies have a lot of up charges they don't mention, other companies don't get home cooked freshly made meals cooked by a personal safari chef 3 times a day, (they get small meal boxes) the list goes on and on of stories and things about issues other companies have that Wakanda just didn't. I got supremely lucky on my trip, but I owe most of it to Wakanda for allowing the luck to come to fruition. I would recommend this company to everyone and anyone looking to take a Safari. Bartho very heavily sticks to the Quality over Quantity formula and I hope to the gods that as his company inevitably continues to grow in both size and success, that he maintains that mentality

It’s a serious company. Almost everything worked as planned. The owner, Bartho, replies very quickly, showing they are trustful. The guide, Mike, was very nice. He even managed very well when one of the clients asked for something the guy that booked the tour for her had promised. The cooker was fantastic also. I wasn't expecting much of the food on the road, but had some delicious dinners, better than others i had in restaurants. That said, remember that a budget safari does not have any luxury, even the most common ones. The lodge we stay in is very basic, with no AC. The structure on camping sites are very disappointing. One of the campings does not have hot water in the shower. The other one has just 2 or 3 showers and then there is a long line to use them. And the toilet is indian style.
A small thing they could improve is that they have beer and wine on the road, but the beer is hot, so it is hard to drink. And during the dinner in the lodge, the beer is not included as advertised, we had to pay for it. But i definitely recommend this company!

Hello Rafael, Thank you for the honest feedback about your safari and we’re glad at the end you still enjoyed your trip! First of all I would like to explain about the campsites on safari which are owned and controlled by the government of Tanzania. We wish we had the authority to improve the bathroom facilities but that remains to be their work, however they have started working on the roads in the parks and hopefully they will improve the facilities on the campsites too. Coming to the hot beers, all our cars are equipped with refrigerators, so maybe the beers weren’t chilly enough as they were just put not a while ago and the car refrigerator has less voltage so it takes a bit of time for the beer to be chilled. And lastly, I would like to deeply apologise for the 2 beers you had to pay in the budget lodge (beer and wine are always included in all our safaris as described in the itinerary, that’s why for the rest of your trip you still had beer and wine from us). There was some misinformation between the new staff and the manager of the lodge, however we still take the full blame and promise to keep everything in order next time. Once again thank you for choosing WAKANDA and we hope to see you again! With kind regards, Bartho Fissoo General Manager

For most of us, the adventure of a wild safari in Africa is something we can only expect to experience once in a lifetime. With so much expectation and desire riding on such a trip, it's little wonder that choosing a tour company can frustratingly difficult. Wakanda safaris lived up to all our expectations and then some, facilitating an experience neither I or my friends will ever forget.

The outstanding organisation, communication, local knowledge, and general amiability of everyone involved all contributed towards our adventure in Tanzania's national parks. We visited the Serengeti, Ngoro Ngoro, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire. We saw lions, hippos, elephants, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos (at a distance!), giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, baboons, and a plethora of other species that I either can't remember, or don't know the name of! Aside from the national parks and animals, we enjoyed countless authentic cultural experiences at the various towns and villages along the way.

Our five day/four night safari included two nights in a hotel and two nights camping. The hotel was very comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. When camping, everything was taken care of, so all we had to do was enjoy a couple of drinks while discussing the sights of the day and enjoy the night sky full of stars. The chef/cook that traveled with us put together an impressive feast for us each night; the source of envy for tours staying at the same campsites. Our guide, Melisa and our chef, Dula, were at the same time both professional and incredibly fun. In most national parks, we'd regularly hear the crackle of the CB radio, with others asking Melisa where the animals were!

It goes without saying that I would recommend this safari, and have already done so with many of my friends and colleagues. I'm not exactly sure how Wakanda Safaris compares in terms of price at the time that you're reading this, but I will say that, for such a once in a lifetime experience, it's worth choosing a tour company that obviously has a passion for what they do, such as Wakanda.

We fully recommend this agency and the 5 days tour. We came from Kenya by bus and everything was planned very well. One night before the Safari has started, we stayed in a hotel in Arusha. On the next day we were picked up to meet our group and guide Felix. Very good organization. The Jeep was very comfortable and for us more than expected for Budget (in other Safaris you only have a small bus). Felix was a good Driver and he could answer all of our questions. We had no expectations about the food, but our chef Abdullah was amazing. There were many different dishes and we also had cold beer and wine. The Lodge and tents were very good and for us it was a really great experience.

After months of careful research for the best Safari tour operator in Tanzania, we chose to rely on the Serengeti Wakanda Safari company which in the end turned out to be an exceptional choice for the unforgettable experience and the extraordinary service it gave us. Bartho the owner is a very nice and knowledgeable person with years of experience. Bartho organized everything and made sure that our whole group had breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared by the Chef Dula, who delighted us with local and international dishes accompanied on request by beer or wine of our choice. The 5 day tour included Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro National parks. Among giraffes, zebras, elephants and thousand of Wildbeasts, we were lucky enough to see at least 3 groups of lions up close and one day early in the morning we even got to see a male lion hunting a topi from the beginning to the end, which is considered very rare to see, as well as a beautiful leopard in a tree and also a cheetah. All this was possible thanks to Andrew our fantastic driver and guide, who with his experience allowed us to see these beautiful felines that are usually difficult to find and see up close. I would also like to mention the dessert that Andrew had Dula prepare to my wife as a birthday surprise, after I mentioned it to him just an hour before dinner. I seriously recommend everyone to contact this company if you want to get the most out of a Safari and ask for Andrew as a guide. To close I would like to thank Bartho again for the dream come true that he gave us, we will certainly treasure the memories for years to come. Asante Sana!
