Oue experience:
If you are a lover of animals and wildlife then i can only highly recommend this safari experience. It was one of the most amazing experiences of our life. Our safari exceeded all our expectations. We learned a lot about and saw lots of different animals, even some rare ones thanks to our great guide Edu! We chose the comfort option and the accomodation sometimes made us feel like we booked the luxurious one instead. The food at the lodges was also great. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. We also had 4 first row views of the great migration of wildebeest and it was simply stunning. It's very rare to see it so many times, but our amazing guide Edu made it possible. We also had some unforgettable nights where we slept and woke up in a tent next to a hippo, monkeys, wildebeest and zebras. We also witnessed a mini "earthquake" created by stampede of zebras. It was simply breathtaking! We also booked Maasai boma visit and a night game drive which were also very nice and unique experiences and i can highly recommend you to consider booking them too.

Tips for future travelers:
Definitely get good binoculars(it will be worth it) and if possible a good camera with a zoom lens. Clothes are not very relevant, you don't need sturdy shoes. But definitely bring good sunglasses. Don't wear overly expensive clothes since they will undoubtedly get dirty. Some roads tend to be very dusty and bumpy so expect to get tired from traveling and expect lots of dust.

Suggestions for the agency:
Only thing we thought of that could possibly make this already amazing itinerary even better is to have at least a day or two where the game drives would be split in two different intervals. One that would start very early in the morning, a break during lunch time and a second one that would last until late in the afternoon. This would be great to see nocturnal animals in action.

Possible improvements:
Lunch boxes were sometimes a bit disappointing which was weird since the food at the lodges was always very good.

As the first time in a safari and first time in Africa we looked for someone relialble and able to guide us for all the aspect of the vacation.
Shemeji has been a great choice for a reasonable price. Emma was helpful and patient, helping clarifiy our doubts. Communication was constant and punctual thru many months before the vacation.
Accomodations provided during the stay were nice and in some way above the excpectations.
Our guide Pemba was so attentive with us and a font of knowledge about wildlife and more, he gave us many many hints.
Having a person from the operations team that was possible to contact during all the vacation was a nice and very appreciated feature.
I will recommend to choose Shemeji to my friends that want to go to Tanzania and sure I will chose them again the next time.

It was our first time safari and we really enjoyed it. The Shemeji organization was fast responsive and understanding especially when we were forced to reschedule our trip with very short notice on December 2021 due to Corona restrictions. We went for a 5 days safari comfort on August 20222, all the lodges were near the parks, the food was good too and sometimes we felt as just guests of the real living creatures of the parks, we saw an hippo walking very close to our tent, hyenas' sounds and many zebras, buffalos, baboons during our stay. All the staff was attentive and professional. Also our car had a small breakdown, but the issue was managed and resoled very promptly. I would like to mention Joseph, our first driver, very professional and knowledgeable guy. And also our rescue driver Pemba, a charming young driver 65 years old with a great experience but also a lot of passion for this job.
P.S. We just had one minor issue, while the initial booking was with an overnight stay at Ngorongoro in a lodge inside the park (we actually paid an extra for that), arriving at destination we found out the company had changed our booking to another lodge far away from Ngrongoro crater without any previous warning and no compensation. But again overall our experience was very positive

this all trip was memorable to me and my partner and make it was the help and advice i received from sheika (sorry if i spell wrong the names) , she even went out of her duties as we were quit surprise to see her at the airport. she made sure that accommodation had everything we asked for by coming with us to the lodge and managed to find an itinerary that fit around our holiday (5 days in total) . Mr Msago, our tour guide was amazing , helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable . We enjoyed every moment with him at the parks. We will definitely recommend Connect African Safari’s to any one coming to Tanzania.

It has been amizing. My husband, my daughter and me did a 10 days safari tour with shemeji and with the superb guide DAVID. He was Really good,
Very professional, educated, respectful , drove very good, kept the car always tidy, knows a lot about animals, friendly, found the best solutions...
We had 2 car brakedowns, even the car and the driving was perfect but the roads a really rough, and DAVID found in both cases a very good alternatives/ solutions.

He organized the walkings we made very good. We give him a 10/10. To be honest we have a lot of respect torwards the guides, They do a very hard work.

Everything was perfect. I recommend you, to do walkings combinate with the cars.
We did 4 walks and all of them where superb.

The accomodations are very good too.
The staff everywhere very friendly.
The food exceptional

If you go to Lake Natron shich is beautiful, you can use a local guide callec Lebanguti Moson. He walked us to the waterfalls and to see the flamingos and it was a great experience

Emmanuel walked with us aroind Lake Manyara and Mto wa Mbu and it was fantastic too...

We’ve booked a 5-day Safari Trip with Shemeji Safari in Tansania and we really enjoyed our Safari.
To start: the whole booking process was perfect. They informed us very good and also the payment process was never a problem. They’ve sent us some information before our trip so that we could prepare us the best. Shemeji Safari was always available via WhatsApp.
The Safari Trip + Transfers + accomodations were very good. Everything was organised as we planned. Our guide (Dionis) was very friendly and knew very much about the national parks and the animals. Also thanks to him we saw the BIG 5!! We’ve learned a lot thanks to Dionis. The car didn’t had the same comfort as other cars but it actually didn’t bother us much. We’ve booked a comfort Safari and were really happy with the accomodations (AfricaSafari + Endoro Lodge). The staff in the tented camps were always very friendly and helped us where they could.
I can only recommend booking a Safari Trip with Shemeji.

We had an incredible experience with Shemeji Safari Tanzania. They have reasonable prices but with good quality. Emma and Anna presented us different options - budget vs comfortable, which parks, how many days, etc.
We opted for the comfortable 4 days safari - 1 day in Tarangire, 2 days in Serengeti and 1 day in Ngorongoro and we loved it!
Our guide was Julius and we couldn’t have been more happy with him. Super nice, great driver, founded so many hidden animals that we would never found alone and knew everything about all of them. And we saw the bid 5 ! Thank you so much Julius!
Regarding the accommodations, we stayed in tends with private bathroom in all 3 lodges. In general the staff were super nice and friendly and the rooms clean.
We loved it !!

As a family adventure, this was a perfect trip. The whole booking procedure and all the arrangements with first night hotel, transfers and the additional walking safari worked perfectly. Our adult daughters happily stepped up at half past five in the morning ready for morning safaris. We visited 4 national parks in 6 days and camped in public campsites. Ben, our guide knew a lot about the landscape animals and animals behavior. He was also great at finding the animals and also getting along even though it was very flooded in both Serengetti and Ngorongoro which was unusual for the time. Isaak our chef was also very good and attentive and so we got good food throughout the trip, breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you like campinglife then this is a perfect way to make a safari trip

Thank you for your review and good to read that your trip was perfect. This year the rain was extreme, maybe 2020 is, in general, a strange year, but the game is still spectacular and waiting for you! Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, Lake Manyara, and Natron or Tarangire they are all different so every day it will be a new adventure

We've booked a 7-day Safari Tour with Shemeji Safari in Tansania. That was a really exciting, memorable and well organized trip in every detail. We've visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Manyara National Parks plus Natron See National Park and Kilimanjaro National Park. We've seen a lot: the "big five" as Buffalo, Elefant, Leopard, Lion, and Rhino, and many plus animals as Cheetah, Crocodile, Hyena, Jackel, Mongoose, Baboon, many Antelops, Giraffe and Zebras, not to forget the Wildbeest, Wharthog and Hyppoes, plus nice looking birds. All this exciting animals were presented by our very talanted and devoted guide Khalid, who tirelessly searched the places of animals even in his overtime. We saw mindestens 50 lions, many zebras, giraffes and a part of Big Migration with thousands of zebras and wildebeests moving from Kenya to Serengeti back. The lodges, where we have spent our nights were perfect, the food given excellent and the staff for Lodges very helpful and friendly. Many thanks for this unforgettable journey.

We were on a 7-day camping safari in Tarangire NP, Lake Manyara NP, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Lake Natron. Throughout, we've had a really good time and made unforgettable memories on every single day.
Our guide Adam was always very friendly and motivated. He was great in spotting animals and always knew a lot to tell about them. He gave his best to make us see as many animals as possible and always made sure that we could see and photograph them from the perfect spot. In the evenings he took time to talk with us even more about the animals seen, the parks and Tanzanian culture.
Our chef Godson was great. Always smiling and cooking very good meals for us. He always made sure that we are happy with the food. We were two vegatarians and that was no problem at all.
We would absolutely recommend to go on safari with Shemeji. Thank you for the great experience!
