After an unplesent incident with another Safari company that took up the price we agreed on in the last minute, i was fortunate to meet Andrew, the owner of Jackpot.
Jackpot is a family buisness, and it was clear to see that more that they care about the money and their profit, they care about the client experience and enjoyment.
We did a tailored trip to the Serengeti with many special requests and budget, and Andrew was very attentive and flexible and helped us navigate and make everything happen.
His driver Thomas was also great and he went out of is way to help us get extraoedinary sightings.
I did a very broad research speaking with dozens of companies before choosing Jackpot, and i couldn't be happier.

We spent1 night in Ngorogoro Crater and 3 nights in Serengeti, entering 30 May and exiting 3 June 2022. Jackpot Safaris listened to our concerns,needs and expectations, and exceeded them all on every level. Our driver Justin's knowledge of the Ngorogoro and Serengeti was evident through all the amazing sightings we experienced. Chef Benjamin never ceased to surprise us with his food and his service was excellent. Andrew's arrangements were impeccable. I highly recommend Andrew and his team

I’ll start by saying that Andrew and his beautiful family made our dream trip to Tanzania be one of the best & unforgettable experience in our life. Andrew took such good care of us before & during the trip itself. We did Safaries and Kilimanjaro which was an excellent choice. Andrew connected us to the best guides, drivers, chefs.. The treatment was very personal and we felt very comfortable during the whole experience. He made sure we are well, took care of everything we needed, and made sure we feel comfortable and enjoying our trip the whole time. Also his family is amazing, they introduced us to Arusha, took us to the best restaurants, and was so kind and nice to us.

Andrew hooked us up with the most amazing customized tour! We met him the day before and told him we were on a tight budget and only had 2.5 days available. We told him we wanted to be able to see two parks. Despite the insane demands he came up with two plans of which the second was absolutely amazing. Everything was included in the quoted price, the food served throughout the trip was fresh and amazing, the accommodations were much better than I expected, and the guide!!! Oh the guide was wonderful. Isa took us everywhere and went out of his way to make sure we got the best safari experience imaginable. He gave us an experience in two days that would have taken most others two weeks. He knows the parks like the back of his hand and is so knowledgeable about all the animals we saw. The experience was just incredible and getting to see both the southern portion of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in 2 days was unbelievable. The cooks even packed boxed lunches for us to eat while we were out on the safari. Overall it was an unforgettable once in a lifetime experience. It wouldn’t have been possible without the flexibility and amazing planning of the company and the expertise of our guide. I couldn’t be thankful enough!

This is a review of our safari trip in Tanzania in 2003.

We met Andrew by chance on the streets of Arusha, and the safari organized by this great man is one of the best experiences in our lives. We went on a private safari with just a driver/guide, a chef, a Land Rover and a tiny tent. We started our adventure in Lake Manyara National Park, but also spent several days exploring the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater. We camped under the African sky among buffaloes and lions. Our guide and driver William did an excellent job of sharing his knowledge of the various parks and animals with us. Our chef Vincent was the kindest person you can imagine and provided us with amazing food.

We saw tons of animal, such as migrating wildebeests, zebras and gazelles, impalas, jackals, hyenas, ostriches, hippos, a rhino, elephants, lions, exotic birds, a couple of leopards and a running cheeta with prey (not to forget the very fascinating dung beetles). It was an amazing trip thanks to William and Vincent, and Andrew and his crew made the safari trip an unforgettable experience. In fact, it was so great that I proposed to my girlfriend a few weeks later (and we are still married 19 years after).

Keep up the great work.

We had the best time with Jackpot Safaris on our honeymoon! We chose the 3 night 4 day safari and it was the perfect amount of time to see 3 parks and
so many mammals, birds, reptiles, plants, and more! Highly recommend making the trek out to Serengeti, such an epic place.

Camping was an awesome adventure. Our guide and cook were so friendly and accommodating. The guide/driver was extremely knowledgeable on the layouts of the parks and where to drive to try to spot animals. And the cook was a seasoned pro who took great pride in sharing Tanzanian dishes with us. Each meal was unique.

We would definitely recommend the experience to others. Andrew has a solid team. You can’t go wrong with Jackpot!

My wife and I went on a 5 day safari with Jackpot Safari and it was an unforgettable experience. Andrew and his team did an outstanding job throughout our safari. Our tour guide Hadji was knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife, making the experience even more special. The accommodations were top-notch and provided the perfect balance of comfort and adventure. I would highly recommend Jackpot Safari to anyone looking for an amazing safari experience.

We went up Kilimanjaro along the Machame Route with Jackpot. Andrew‘s organisation was great and the team he put together was absolutely wonderful.
My dad got sick along the way and we could spontaneously extend our trip to 7 days, allowing all of us (my dad, brother and I) to make it to the summit in the end.
Andrew and the team took care of everything in the background so we didn’t have to worry about anything except walking, eating and enjoying.
Also, we felt like being part of a family and the team’s positive energy really carried us up the mountain!
It was an authentic and individual experience and I can highly recommend booking with Andrew and Jackpot Safari! :)

I had an amazing 2 and a half day trip to visit the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti from Arusha. Andrew was able to accommodate our group of 10 at the last minute and give us a reasonable price. Our guides and cooks were amazing. Very kind and knowledgeable. The cook made the best cucumber soup I have ever had. Would book another safari with them!

We were a group of 4 who decided very last minute that we wanted to experience the migration in Serengeti. Andrew was referred to us and he managed to put together out trip in 2 days. He went out of his way to make our trip work.
His guide Bernard was professional and knowledgeable and has eagle eyes. How he managed to see that leopard in the tree was amazing.
We had the experience of a lifetime, lion prides and their cubs, mommy cheetah teaching her cubs to hunt - exciting but heartbreaking for the gazelle. We saw 62 different species.
I highly recommend Andrew and his team.feom Jackpot Safaris.
