Sincerely! I don’t know where to begin, but all I can say from the pick up at the airport. It was promising that it would be a memorable adventure . Wasn’t what I and my fiancé expected on our way to Tanzania, we were beautifully welcomed at the airport and well dropped at the hotel. During our road trip we had a lot of conversation with our tour guide about the beautiful TANZANIA 🇹🇿, culture, traditions and way of life was pretty interesting. We were exited for the coming since we had so much just during the trip to the park. During our safari at the SELOUS ( THE NYERERE NATION PARK), we saw so much that blew our thoughts and energy into an excitement and joy. That wasn’t the fact but the guidance and explanations from our guide was more than we expected. Beautiful handled and well taken care of. Shortly I can say it was amazing, I and my fiancé had a great time during our safari trip. We loved the food, hotel and tour guide company. Truly amazing, it was worth the time and money spent fir our visit. We would love to visit Tanzania again. And more over I would recommend AFRICAN PANGOLIN SAFARIS. They are truly amazing on their work.

We went as a family with 3 small kids and chose Mikumi as it is relatively close to Dar. The driver was excellent, and we had a very safe trip to and from the park. The good thing about the park is that a lot of animals stay close to the entrance, so the kids immediately saw elephants, impala, giraffe, zebra, storks and hornbills and at a near waterhole hippo’s and crocks. It was almost as going to a zoo. For the lions it took some more time, but we did see one at another waterhole which took some hours to get there as the riverbed was dry and the remaining sand too soft and fine for the big and heavy 4x4 to cross. At least if you don’t want to run the risk to get stuck. Almost no tourists or rangers around so we had it ‘all for ourselves’. The only thing we missed were the sundowners we always had in Southern Africa and give it just that little extra. The lodge, Vuma Hills tented camp, was definitely ok, but not as luxurious as their southern African colleagues. Food was ok, but nothing special. People as always super friendly, relaxed and welcoming. The trip was very well organized, so for sure we will recommend them (African Pangolin Safaris) to colleagues and friends.

Communication before safari: Travelling during covid-19 spread crisis is quite adventurous and risky. But if you find a reliable tour operator the risk minimizes. Before choosing the safari I received a lot of quotes from different companies, but Mansoor from African Pangolin Safaris was the person who took into consideration all my requests and proposed great itineraries adapted to our budget. The communication with him was always prompt and reliable, something very important when your flights were canceled and rebooked several times. The safari: We had fantastic guide – Yunus. He took care of us during the whole travel, he drove with masterpiece this huge 4x4 vehicle, he knew the parks and the animals. Selous boat safari was very pleasant - a lot of hippos, crocodiles, beautiful birds and fantastic sunset. The game drive in Selous was amazing. It is a very beautiful park with different landscapes and a lot of lakes. We saw giraffes, kudus, impalas, gnus, elephants, crocodiles, hippos, monkeys, different birds, lizzards, pumbas, etc. The drive between Selous and Mikumi was exhausting as the road was mainly offroad and 350 km took us almost 9 hours, but it was also rewarding. we passed through different villages with local people, we crossed the mountain and enjoyed the different landscapes. The Mikumi park was not so beautiful as Selous but there we were lucky to spot leopard! We also saw elephant herds with very small baby elephants. The thing I didn`t like in both parks are the huge trucks that pass by. In Selous they started build a hydroplant and a lot of trucks entered the park every day. Through Mikumi passes an international road with a busy truck traffic. If there were no such noise I assume we would seen much more animals, including lions. Some tips: - have a good repellent against mosquitos and other insects; - bring good binoculars – without it you will miss more than 50% of the animals you may see; - bring good camera, phone photos are not comparable to a good camera photo; - exchange money, some of the shops accept only Tanzanian shillings. You can do this at the airport. Have some small notes for tips. - bring toiletries, there is soap in the camps, but no shampoo, etc. Thank you, Yunus and Mansoor for these great 5 days!

This was one of the most awe inspiring trips we have ever done. First off our guide, Mansoor, was exceptional. We started our trip in Dar Es Salam, where he picked us up early in the morning on day one to drive us out to the park. Following arrival we ventured into Mikumi park were we were immediately greeted by many amazing animals. Following this we ventured up the hill to our amazing tent nestled in the jungle overlooking the African plains, this alone was a fantastic experience. The following day consisted of an early morning start, with a great breakfast followed by a drive through the park where we saw all kinds of great species in their natural habitats. Truly amazing to witness this first hand. Day 3 consisted of another great breakfast, and our last safari. Then Mansoor was gracious enough to drive us to the sea port to catch our ferry to Zanzibar to finish our trip off at the beach. All in all I rate this experience a 5 Guide - 5/5 Accommodations - 5/5 (foxes camp) - staff was 👍👍 Wildlife - 5/5 Thank you again for the great experience!
