We went with Kanuth Adventure Safaris on a private 3-night, 4-day safari to Mikumi National Park and Nyerere National Park (formerly Selous Game Reserve). We had a fantastic experience with Kanuth himself, who is a certified guide for all parks in Tanzania as well as a great driver. This is important because you do not need to pick up a guide when entering a new park; you just enter and Kanuth will do the spotting on the game drive, and he is GOOD at it. We did not feel under time pressure at any point in time. Kanuth showed up at our hotel in Morogoro 5 a.m. and 2 h later, we were in Mikumi where the fun began. On the way out, we had to wait for the lions to pass the highway – it really does not get any better than that. The following two days were spent in Nyerere National Park where the wildlife is abundant and with very few visitors. Contact Kanuth and he will design a program for you regardless of if you have only 1 day available or would like to stay overnight in the parks or in nearby hotels. Next time, we are going to test his cooking skills since his CV also include several years of experience as a safari cook!

Tarimo has been very kind and patient to answer to all our questions and doubts we recommend this company for everybody. We had two days Safari in Mikumi park. We were very happy with this tour. We saw the big 4 (there are no Rhinos at Mikumi) They are very professional. Everything was perfect. Our guide, Muddy has served us very professionally. He gave many info to us about wild life, he was very friendly. Also he was a good driver as well. Our stay in Camp Bastian was also perfect, all hotel staff was very kind to us. It was very clean and the foods are quite ok.

With limited time in Tanzania we opted to take a three-day safari to the Mikumi National Park, the northernmost section of the Selous National Park on the Southern Circuit. We had booked the tour in the UK using TripAdvisor recommendations, choosing Kanuth out of the plethora of companies available (even more, of course, if you are more spontaneous and book your safari once you get to Tanzania). The safari was a mixed bag, so for ease let’s address the pros and cons: PROS: • OUR SAFARI GUIDE: The one clear and obvious bonus of our safari was our wonderful and highly knowledgeable driver/guide Dotto. We would absolutely recommend that if you choose to book with Kanuth, and need an English speaking guide, you request Dotto. He guided us on three game drives: an evening drive on the day of arrival; a full day’s drive the following day, organising a packed lunch for us with the safari camp; and an early morning drive on our day of departure. Dotto soon realised that whilst it is, of course, brilliant to see ‘The Big Five’ we personally felt that there is a lot more to experiencing the Savannah than just seeing the big animals, not least the incredible variety of bird life - we saw three species of eagle and an amazing array of other birds. Dotto also knew exactly where to take us to view some wonderful sights, for example: a lioness with her four cubs; all done quietly and calmly without the frantic rush that so many safari vehicles and drivers display. • THE TENTED LODGE: We chose the upgraded option of Vuma Hills Tented Camp; if you have the budget we would recommend this lovely tented camp. Beautiful, well-appointed tents, wonderful setting, lovely staff and good food with the additional entertainment of Bush babies appearing at dinnertime! CONS: • SAFARI JEEP: You need to be aware that the travel time from Dar Es Salaam to Vuma and the Mikumi National Park can be anything up to 7 hours and whilst Mikumi is one of the more accessible parks travelling from Dar it is still a long day’s drive. We were aware of this but we did not expect to be making the trip in a vehicle that was clearly not fit for purpose. The jeep was very old and had no air conditioning and no radio, so travel was quite uncomfortable. • SAFARI ITINERARY: Our agreed ‘safari itinerary’ was an evening drive on the day of arrival, a full day drive the following day, and then on the last day a walking safari. Dotto was unaware that the walking safari was a prearranged element of the three-day tour and despite his best efforts he was unable to negotiate this with the park rangers. It is unclear whether Mikumi actually offer walking safaris and so we felt that this lack of clarity was an issue. Given that this was one of our reasons for choosing this itinerary the last morning was a little lack-lustre. On the whole we were happy with the tour but we feel that communication with the guide could have been better, as could have been organisation and quality of transport.

Choosing Safari Company is not an easy thing to do. There are more than a thousand companies offering Safari tour. Some of them are owned by Local businessman, but a lot are owned by foreign people. When we travel to specific country we like to support local business, so we have limited the choice only to Tanzanian companies. For us safari was the most expensive attraction during our 3 weeks' vacation so we have also looked at a price a lot. Kanuth Adventure company won due to couple of reasons - They gave the best price, they were owned by a Tanzanian man, they had good reviews and communication went really smooth and fast. We booked a 5 days Safari, in a group of minimum 4 people. Day 1 Tarangire - night near Day 2 drive to Serengeti - night in Serengeti Day 3 Game Drive in Serengeti - night in Serengeti Day 4 Drive to Ngorongoro - night near Crater Day 5 morning in crater afternoon Back to Arusha For 5 days Safari with accommodation (Tents in camps) and food we paid less than a 1000$/person. I guess the price was low also because we have been driving much older car than the rest safari companies. It got broken couple of times, but repairs were quick and it was more of an experience itself than a complaint from our side. The car had everything which was needed though (open roof, electricity plug, fridge). Be aware that there is a lot of dust on the way, especially when there is no AC and windows have to be open. At the end of the trip we were trying to help drive through other cars on the road due to a heavy rain on a hill and instead we got stuck in a ditch. With the help of couple other people we were able to pull out our Land cruiser and get back on the road. Pretty cool ! Tents were really comfortable, durable and big as for 2 people, it looked like military tent. They also provided mattresses. The only disadvantage was the luggage in front of the open roof during the trip in Tarangire, therefore we could watch animals only on sides. Starting in Arusha, we have met our guide (Moses) and our cook (Eric) as well as our companions from Cyprus (Navid & Andrea - awesome people). In Tarangire we have seen a lot of elephants, gazelles (Thomson, Impala, Grant, Waterback), warthog, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, birds, and hiding cheetah on a hill ). Moses was explaining types of animals, they behaviors, difference between males and females (still cannot recognize :P ), history of the park and so on. This is a big plus as at some point we knew all animals around. We have asked a lot of questions, but a lot of times he was starting the conversation. Moses was stopping on every sign we have requested, to see animals or other needs, like shopping before safari or peeing during safari. Moses and Eric were waking up almost every day early morning at 5 am to cook for us and drive on safari as early as possible, that is a big plus us animals could be usually seen in some action in the morning or in the evening. In Serengeti we have seen all animals with some action as well. Cheetah, Lions, Leopard, Hiena, Jackal, Hippos, a lot of Gazelles, Elephants, Buffalos, Zebras, crocodiles, monkeys and many other so it was mostly due to Moses work which we are grateful for. He was spotting many animals, sometimes we got to the place with many cars already but sometimes we were first to see lions or cheetahs in action. We had a lot of interesting conversations with Moses and Eric which gave us a lots of fun. It would be good if they could inform us in advance what is the plan when we get to the place, I feel we were lacking this type of information. Chef Eric was preparing good meals always with a smile. We have ordered a vegetarian meal, which we have received during a whole trip. At the end of the trip, thanks to Moses we have stopped in real Masai market, not tourist one and got tier Masai sandals. Besides some of above issues I would rate this Safari as good one.
