      Shrike Safaris Earned All the Stars!
      The experience with Shrike was excellent from start to finish. They aim to please and offer a very personal and memorable experience. Communication was great even before we left the US to get there. I felt very comfortable doing business with Mark. Their price was very reasonable, as well. Visiting Serengeti has been a dream of mine since I was about 7 or 8 years old. Watching animals shows with my dad was a favorite past time. We didn’t have a lot of time and wanted to maximize our stay in Zanzibar. and visit Serengeti. Mark delivered top notch service from start to finish. He arranged pick up from the airport in Mwanza and got us sorted at hotel that he recommended. We met with him in person and he was asked us what we dreamed of seeing. My husband can be a tough customer, but Mark’s excellent service won him over. Our driver, Henry was also amazing. We had a night of excellent food and service at the recommended hotel: Henry picked us up promptly at 5:30 am and we were off. We stopped for breakfast at campsite run by a local family. The eggs, pancake and fresh passion fruit and avocado juice was delicious. We were warmly welcomed with Tanzanian hospitality and wished we could have spent more time there. The drive to Serengeti was scenic and educational. Henry shared all of the facts as we drove. We learned quite a bit about the local way of life. As a school administrator I was very intrigued by the many school children all dressed in uniform walking to school. We arrived at Serengeti around 8:30 AM. Within a couple of hours, we were able to see most of what we came to see. We had seen so much, we had an early lunch. It was quite tasty. The beauty of Serengeti was all that I dreamed. As I allowed the wind to blow across my face as I stood atop and looked out from the Land Rover’s top, I felt immensely blessed to have had this experience. Mark and Henry with Shrike earned all of the stars.

      Awesome!!!
      Custom trip starting and ending in Arusha, with Denis as our guide. Denis was fantastic - sharing his knowledge about the animals and the area. Always felt safe with him. Went to Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire on 6 day custom tour. Lucky to see the Big 5, plus so many other amazing animals and sights. Food and accomodation great (mid-range). Loved it, and would do it again! Mark was great in planning the trip with us. Very thankful to have had such a great experience.

      The BEST safari operator in Tanzania
      My husband and I are incredibly thankful to Shrike for all that they did to make our honeymoon in Tanzania one of the best trips of our lives. Shrike is one of those companies you can trust. During the planning, they were easy to communicate with and Mark and Bob always responded to my countless emails (sorry!). Shrike was very willing to tailor the trip to exactly what we wanted, including hiking Ol Doinyo Lengai, and Empakai Crater. They welcomed us at the Kilimanjaro airport and we immediately knew we were with good people. The guides they select are also the BEST. We were fortunate to have Dixon as our guide during our safari, who ensured that we saw as many animals as we could (got the big 5!). We also appreciated Dixon's careful driving (the streets of Arusha can be crazy!), and willingness to explain the animal's behavior as we observed. We truly learned SO much. Simon was our guide in Zanzibar and he was incredibly hospitable and welcomed us graciously to his island. Our tour of Stone Town was very interesting and we learned lots! Shrike booked all of our accommodations during our 2 week trip and we were impressed with every single one. The hospitality in Tanzania is top-notch. They even surprised my husband with a bottle of wine and cake on his birthday. My husband and I have never booked a travel company prior to Shrike, as we are typically more of a do-it-yourself couple, but we were SO glad we did for this trip. I will be recommending Shrike Safaris to all of our friends and family. Thank you Mark and team!

      Amazing safari day trip to Mikumi
      Amazing experience. Everything was as planned, and on time. Very quick responses to plan the safari. I totally recommend. 1-day safari to Mikumi included driving to so many different spots, I was able to see many animals. There were also meal breaks. The driver was really attentive and informative.

      Machame route
      My friend and I was going to trek Kilimanjaro on the Machameroute 7 days and the trek was amazing! We are happy that we did 7 days instead of 6, because you then have good time to relax and acclimatise, so the chance for having a great trek to the summit is bigger. The team was really nice and helpful every time we had a question and it seems like they had a good overview of everything, and as we could see also treated all employees good and respectful. Overall we had the best time and are never going to forget the trek. A tip is to look at the internet for a good packing list and try to find it used or bring it from home, because it’s expensive from new and to rent is also expensive but really good things you get

      very nice
      It was a really really nice trip!! Very well organized and the driver had a lot of knowledge. We also saw so many animals, I would have never thought. But only 4 out of 5 because they told me other people were coming on the trip as well which was not true.

      The wonder of Serengeti
      Our Tanzania trip from airport pick-up to drop-off which included the Serengeti, Ngorongoro safari and Zanzibar beach holiday was organised by Shrike. Our point of contact was Mark and he did an amazing job with attention to the smallest details making it a memorable and stress free vacation!! Our safari guide was Denis who is friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. He made sure we saw the 'Big 5' , wildbeest/zebra migration and spotted a whole lot of animals and birds. We even caught a rainbow 🌈. The safari is in itself an unforgettable experience with the endless plains of Serengeti stretching as far as the eyes can see but the warmth and smiles of the local people embraces and cocoons you. For a customised trip where you are taken care of always and made to feel special Shrike is the way to go!!

      Safari with Shrike
      We had an amazing safari with Shrike. We enjoyed a trip from Arusha, through Ngorogoro, Serengeti to Mwanza, full of lovely lodges, amazing nature from tentcamps, the big five, the big migration and our guide Chacha could tell us a lot about both animals and plants. He was a very good guide, very skilled, and knowing when to tell a story and engage in a conversation. We where very much included in the planning of the trip, which was adjusted to our specific wishes. Furthermore, the car was well equiped - the good binocular did a big difference. The only thing that was a bit confusing was the tips. Even though the agreement stated that tips where paid, it seemed like the people at the accomodation still expected tips. But as was the the only concern, i must give my warm recommendation to use Shrike!

      Unforgettable Experience
      Shrike safari provided a luxury experience for our group from start to finish. Experiencing a safari is a life altering occurrence, but it is an even better experience with such a great company. As an initial matter, the scheduling and logistics were seamless. Shrike accommodated our dietary restrictions (vegan) and provided an unforgettable dining experience of eating breakfast and lunch in the midst of the beauty that is the Serengeti. As a bonus, we had an extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Mark, who made it his mission to ensure we saw the “Big 5” and so much more. Once our private plane landed in the Serengeti, we were immediately greeted by Giraffes. Next, we were captivated by Lions, Cheetahs, elephants, buffaloes and hippopotamus in addition to antelopes, zebras, baboons, impalas, mongooses, ostriches and too many birds to name! Shrike Safaris and Mark made this trip one to remember.

      Awesome 4 days Camping Safari
      We went on a 4 day camping Safari with Shrike from Mwanza to Arusha. We visited Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We had a lot of fun and saw many different animals. Their attitude was always very good. Our guide Paul tried his best to show us all the animals and Jamal cooked us really good food. Mark also did a great job briefing us before the trip. Overall, we had a great experience with Shrike and we would definitely recommend them.

      Avoid this company - cannot be trusted
      A word of warning to anyone thinking of booking a safari with Shrike; an untrustworthy and deceitful company. I lived in Tanzania for many years and booked to go on safari in April 2020, because of the pandemic the safari was postponed. I waited patiently for over two years and trusted their reassurance that my safari would be rearranged. After reopening in June 2022, I was in contact with Shrike once more, a very slow back and forth which ended up with me running out of time and having to return to the UK. Shrike assured me that I would be able to get my money refunded and that was the start of countless dates being promised and then broken for the money to be returned to my account. I have been in contact with the Shrike offices and the director Mark himself. I have now been waiting for 2 months for the money to be returned to me and they are now ignoring me. I am writing this review as a warning for others. This company cannot be trusted.

      Great experience in the Serengeti. Saw everyone we wanted to see, in abundance. Fantastic people, our guide James and tour director Mark from Shrike Safaris were awesome people. I would recommend this value for money experience to everyone.

    I had a 5 days safari tour in February 2024, 3 days in Serengeti and last day in Ngorongoro crater, very lucky to be in the migration period and we saw almost all the possible animals. It was one of the best tour I have ever experienced, Shrike safaris was perfectly organised, very easy to comunicate with them for the organisation and everything, during the tour the guide was very confident and ready to help with everything.
    We had an unforeseen in the Ngorongoro but they were very good to reorganise my trip. I really recommend them for an unforgettable safari experience
