Jewel was great to work with. We created a custom trip to tie in some ministry visits with a Safari and Dona worked with us to try to make it all happen. Abdallah was a very conscientious guide working hard to get us where we needed to be to enable us to experience all that the national parks have to offer. We had awesome Leopard and Lion sightings. He was very helpful to me as a photographer trying to help me get the images I wanted. Wish we could have booked a longer trip! There is sooooo much to see! Would definitely work with them again.

I had been planning this trip for my family of 6 in Canada and I had a lot of worries and a lot of things that I wanted to do. In the end, this safari was one of the greatest family trips I have ever experienced!! Dona and his team at Jewel Safari helped us create a custom itinerary, making for the most incredible days I could have ever imagined. At night, they made sure we were well taken care of at some of the most beautiful lodges and tented camps, with the most incredible views and the nicest staff. Our trip started in Arusha, where we were picked up by our incredible driver and guide Peter. We travelled to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, and flew out from Arusha. The trip was absolutely spectacular. Jewel was also responsible for setting up our driver and guide, Peter, who was one of the best guides I have ever had in my life. He is kind, knowledgeable, fun, and he made sure that we were happy at all times. Without Dona, Peter, and the rest of the Jewel Safari team, I don't know how our trip would have been, but with them, we had the most incredible journey -- a once in a lifetime trip. I can say without hesitation that you can trust Dona, Jewel Safari, and Peter with organizing and booking your Safari experiences, whether you are with family, or friends! You will not be disappointed if you book with them ! I highly recommend them. A++

This was a trip of a life time. Everything about the trip was fantastic. The first day we took a boat up the Nile River where we saw hundreds of Hippos, crocodiles, wading elephants and so much more. We had a great dinner and restful nights sleep in a beautiful lodge. After dinner we sat by the fire and watched the buffalo grazing. Hard to believe, but the next day was even better during the game drive. Thousands of animals In avast Savanna as far as the eye could see. Baboons, giraffe, and elephants only feet away. Our driver was awesome and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to see Africa at it’s best.
