We went to Tanzania for 17 days. The first week on safari with Nyika Discovery and then Zanzibar. We had a great dialog with Nyika before we Get to Tanzania. They really helped us to design our tour as we wanted it. One exsample is that we wanted to visit a village and eating local food. We also wanted to visit a local doctor / healer out of the ordinary touristplaces. Nyika fixed everything and made our tour very spesial for us. Our guide and driver had so much knowledge about the animals, the nature and african history. And he was a really good and safe driver. African roads can be tuff, but he was tuffer and made the trip exiting and fun. And it was a lot of humor and lightnes! It was easy spending time with these guys. We felt really taken care of from the minut we arrived till they droved us to the AirPort. We will recomand Nyika Discovery from our heart❤️

Since we arranged 6 day Kilimanjaro trek and had perfect experience, we decided to go with Nyika Discovery on a one day excursion to Materuni waterfalls, Chemka hot springs and on a 4 day Safari to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro National Park. After Kili trek we had free accommodation in one hotel in Moshi town, which was clean, decent and we had hot water for shower. On the following day owner, Hamisi, came with Joseph (our guide from Kili) to pick us up in the hotel, early in morning. We were first (and alone) on Materuni waterfall, which gave us opportunity to take some great photos and enjoy the silence of nature with sounds of majestic waterfall. Later we went to Chemka hot springs. Water was clean and clear, and it was a perfect picnic sight. That night we were accommodated in one clean, nice and comfortable hotel in Arusha town. On the following day we started our 4 day safari adventure in Tarangire national park. During the drive Hamisi was telling us about history of Maasai tribe and their current way of life and we heard very interesting stories and historical facts. Perfect history lesson 😊 from a great storyteller. He always had some cool stories about different kind of animals, their symbiosis with other animals and/or plants… He tried to find as many different animals as possible and always gave us enough time to enjoy in their presence, to observe them and to take hundreds of photos. We spent 4 hours in Tarangire. On that day we had take-away lunch and monkeys didn`t bother us (couldn`t steal our food) because Hamisi guarded us and foil all of their attempts 😊. We finished the day in one camp site near Manyara National Park. Our tent was very big and comfortable. Serengeti is one special national park. It`s really huge, has lot of sights with interesting stone formations, a lot of Acacia trees and we meet 4 of Big Five (and a variety of other animals). We had luck, but it is very important who is your driver and how much he is trying to show you as much animals as he can. In Serengeti we had afternoon drive with sunset and early morning one with sunrise. We saw wonderful scenes – a lioness cuddling with 5 cubs in front of our car, a leopard on the tree, a cheetah, hyenas which chased “something”, buffaloes which were fighting and playing around, hippos, elephants, zebras, impalas, giraffes, jackals, vultures, antelopes, monkeys… And finally, we saw 2 rhinos in Ngorongoro, lions that chase away hyenas and vultures from their catch plus all the animals that we saw in Tarangire and Serengeti. A perfect cook accompanied us on the Safari trip and prepared delicious and various food. And a plenty of it. Hamisi was perfect company on this trip. He always waited for us at the arranged time, gave us all necessary information (and interesting ones) and even drove us free of charge to one orphanage and back to a hotel. Safari is one of a kind, special, unique and all in all a lifetime experience. But it is important to pick the company that is professional, that will make your trip unique and organize every detail in perfect way… Like Nyika Discovery did for us.

I would highly recommend Nyika Discovery to anyone planning a trip to the Serengeti. We worked specifically with Hamisi who coordinated everything! With his guidance we truly had a seamless once in a lifetime travel experience! He stayed in constant contact with us and made sure all questions and concerns were addressed along the way of planning. Every detail was highly thought out to make sure we had the best experience possible. We were also equally impressed with our guide, Donald, once we got to the Serengeti, your guide is just as important. These two, Hamisi and Donald made all the difference! I would recommend Nyika Discovery to anyone planning a trip to the Serengeti, it was worth every penny.

We booked with Nyika Discovery a safari trip for 8 nights. Before the safari Hamisi was very helpful for all our questions. When we arrived at Tanzania the service at the first day from the airport till the last day of the trip was really great. Our route was really amazing and we saw a lot of Tanzania. Especially the entrance at the North of the Serengeti was great. We were with 3 friends and a 3-man crew. So we had the entire Safari jeep for ourself. The food of the cook was really good. The driver and guide were really amazing. We saw everything we want to see multiple times. The guide Ali knows a lot of the national parks of Tanzania. Freddy the driver was really awesome and he told us every dinner really cool stories about his previous safari's. After our Safari we rent a car by Hamisi to drive to the Kilimanjaro and the hot springs. The car and service was also really good. We will never forget this safari!

Nyika Discovery team (Hamisi and Donald) were such great hosts that I cannot recommend them more to everyone! From the first contact arriving in Arusha to our departure, they were with us to assist us and show us the best Tanzania can offer. Our guide (Donald) was incredible on the safari tour, by instinctively tracking down to show us all the wonderful wildlife, and unbelievably 2 crossings in one day!!! Just an incredible time, with lifetime memories!!!
