Dear Sinic, I think Joel will be delighted when he reads that comment! Our guides are indeed very knowlegable, real experts. (I myself always learn something when I travel with them.) We are very pleased that you enjoyed your safari. All our Staffs who plan with our guests are always ready to listen. They advise, but ultimately, it is your safari, not ours! And we are always ready to do so. The important thing is that our guests have a good time! Thanks so much! Kind regards, Mataro Mwita

特别难忘的旅行。我的导游司机非常有经验,非常专业,而且分享给我很多丰富的大自然动物的知识。他还知道哪里可以找到不同的动物栖息地和聚集地。因为我是独自一人旅行,我的导游司机让我感到非常轻松和倍感关照。令我难忘的还有居住的lodge,非常有特色,被大自然和可爱的动物围绕。还有丰富的自助晚餐和早餐。

Dear Yin . Thank you, we appreciate your comments. Our guides are chosen for their personalities, not just their knowledge of the wildlife. Visitors will spend a lot of time with their guide, so it is important that they are friendly and personable. We hope to see you again, one day! Best Regards Mataro

We decided to book tis family trip after a careful evaluation of three different organizations. Friends of Safari and his sole owner and employee, Mataro, seemed to be the more involved and knowledgeable. He has adapted the program according to our preferences (a little more hiking than usual) and we've been delighted by what we've seen, the quality of the lodging and the competence and kindness of our guides. That was for the good part.
On the financial side, the trip ended in a stressful and costly experience as Mataro had not used the prepaid money to book the whole trip. As he disappeared for health reasons in the middle of the trip, he left his contracted guides with no solution regarding the plane tickets that had not been booked and the hotel reservations that had not been paid. We had to take care of everything by ourselves, paying those amounts twice. Since July, it's proven impossible to recover our money, despite Mataro's recognition of his fault, an agreed upon installment plan and numerous broken promises.
Conclusion: do use Friends of Safari for their outstanding advices and subcontracted services, but dont' prepay and ask for voucher confirmations as soon as you pay.

First of all, I would like to congratulate you for a great safari experience from Us! Second, I would like to apologize for what happened during your family safari, but I want to be honest and I don't want to put all our agreements on public because it's not professional. But I want to thank you for this feedback. Your feedback will make us stronger and be careful for any booking conditions to any of our clients. Now we understand that an agreement without writing is not an agreement. Many thanks and Best Regards, Mataro

I wanna give you infinite thanks for your work: Mataro from the office, Sule and the rest of the crew with us during the safaris: everything was perfect and our group was completly satisfied!
Everything was as good as we expected, I don´t think you can improve anything! I cannot complain about any point before, during or after our staying in Tanzania. Congratulations team!!! We will never forget these days in Tanzania, and your professional and perfect work is part of the success of these safari days, that we enjoyed 100%.

I wanna add that food was even better than we expected: Osman is a great chef!!! People in our group still remember him and how delicious was his food! I would repeat with him without any doubt!

Perfect 2 Land Cruiser, great eye Sule finding animals far from everybody... ASANTE SANA!!!

I went with Babaluu for a three day hike to the top of Mt. Meru. He is a very experienced guide, and we felt very well looked after by the whole team the whole trip. The overall experience was amazing, and the company is very professional. I would definitely recommend to others.

We booked a hiking trip to reach the top of Mt Meru. The whole process was one of the most professional ones I've experienced in Africa. We had proper meetings before the trip, to make sure everything would go smoothly. And it sure did!
The whole team of porters, chef, ranger and our guide were all super friendly and good at their jobs. We felt taken good care of, and had good fun with the crew during the whole trip.

We had a beautiful 7 day-safari tour (Lake Manyara, Ngolo ngolo, Serengeti) with our guide Emmanuel who shared his huge knowledge with us. We learned so much about the country, its people, traditions and nature. We had very interesting conversations at dinner and always laughed a lot! We were lucky to see a lot of animals and most of them within zero distance! This trip was just perfect and we will recommend Friends of Africa Family Safaris organization to our family and friends.

We traveled to Tanzania for work and had 4 free days. We decided to go on a safari from Mwanza to Arusha through Serengeti, Ngoro Ngoro, despite people saying that it would not be worth it if we wanted to see anything exotic. They were wrong! Our guide made sure we saw everything we asked for-- including lions, many, many, many Wildebeests, Cheetah. He was extremely friendly and humorous. I would recommend Friends of Africa Family Safaris to anyone and everyone.
