Amazing Safari trip with Hamis and Ali! We did 5 day serengeti + ngorongoro. Hamis takes you on a ride you will not forget, he is still just as excited to see the animals as we were. Almost all the other companies just listen to the car radio and drive to the location where the lions / cheetas are seen, which often results in 10+ cars arriving in the same spot scaring the animals away. We didn't have the radio on for one sec during our whole safari (I do suspect it might have been broken..). Hamis just likes to go driving in the area where he thinks might be animals and often we were the only ones having seen specific wildlife,when we compared stories at te camp (e.g. three male lions marching into enemy territory). For me, this is what made the safari so enjoyable, there is some risk that you don't spot anything for some time, but when you do, it's all yours. Do note that Hamis has a strong personality / drive and will keep pushing for the animals relentlessly, which makes it sometimes a bit of a die-hard experience. Again, if you enjoy thus kind of adventure, you're int the right place. Food, tents, matresses and general organization are of good quality. Car felt a little dated, with some of the locks on doors not working properly. However, for the very competitive rate Safari Makers offers, the prive quality ratio is outstanding. All in all, excellent experience. When we return we will gladly book again.

My friends and I (3 in total) had a wonderful experience with Safari Makers in february (2020). We planned a 7nights/8days safari with Johnny, crossing Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire park. Johnny was always kind and very quick in answering to all our questions. They offered us a very competitive price (with very nice tented lodge accomodations) and they also included 2hours of walking in the Arusha National Park. Our guide, Pablo, was great! He really knows how to do his job: he knows very well all the parks and told us a lot of curiosities about the wild animals. Plus, he always tried to find for us the best view of the animals! Besides being a very nice and funny driver, he also helped us a lot “outside the safari”. So thank you Johnny and, in particular, thank you Pablo for this great and unforgettable experience!! We would highly recommend this company to everybody!! Francesco, Martina & Alessia

We shopped a lot to find a Safari provider that will give our family of 5 the best quality/price ratio for this "once in a life-time adventure". Jane was always fast to respond to our emails and was able to answer all our questions and concerns. The morning of the pickup at our hostel, we were welcomed by the smiley Pablo , our guide and chauffeur for the next 6 days, and together with Prosper, our great cook, we had a wonderful Safari. We greatly appreciated the experience of the team and all useful information about not only wild animals behaviours but also about the culture and way of living in Tanzania. The key of a successful safari depend greatly on the experience of the guide and we got lucky to get the best ones. Asante sana Pablo and Prosper!

Sadly only had a day and a half, but Safari Makers arranged a great trip to Ngorongoro with overnight stay over Lake Manyara. Pablo was a great guide and really nice company.
