Upon recommendation from a friend of our, my wife and I chose Memory Safaris for our Safari, which was part of our honeymoon.

We had very high expectations, since we had to postpone this trip several times due to Covid. We can say that Memory Safaris well deserve its name, this is a trip that will stay in our heads and hearts for many years

From the very first contact with Godson, Flugence and Véronique through Whatsapp (very reactive by the way - you most likely have tons of questions to ask, just do so by Whatsapp, you'll get your answers in no time) till the end of the trip, everything was above perfection

Godson and Véronique helped us planning the perfect trip, and our guide and driver Flugence did his utmost best to secure that we had the best experience possible, throughout the trip. He was very knowledgeable about the parcs, the animals, the country in general, even the best souvenirs to bring home. Also important to say that he was very fun and easygoing - this is a key point, since you will spend a loot of time with your guide, so having someone who is both expert and fun makes a huge difference.
In a few words, we spent 8 wonderful days, searching for wild animals and the best spots to take pictures, following our guide's spot-on explanations. We had a lot of fun together, and witnessed scenes we could only dream off: lions in trees, leopard mum & cub eating together, crazy zebras, cute impalas...

Also: the full team speaks fluent French, to the point where they will know the names of all animals well better than a French native!

Would 100% recommend, and we are really hoping to be back someday!

We had a very good experience with Memory Safaris during our 5-day safari in the beautiful Tanzanian national parks. Godson, the owner, was very helpful and accomodating. Our safari was well organized. Godwin, our guide, was amazing and we had a great trip with him, with a lot of fun during safari days. We had the chance to observe a lot of different animals thanks to his very good knowledge of the parks. He was always keen to adapt the program to what we wanted to do and see.

I would definitely recommend Memory Safaris for your safari trip in Tanzania !

We toured Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and Tarangire Park. Fabulous safari. We saw the big five, including a black rhino! Godson Mkamba is a superior guide and a great organizer. He creates dream come true safaris!

We spent 7 days in North Tanzania wih Godson. He was a perfect guide, very considerate and full of knowledge on nature and animals. The choice of lodge was great and picnic baskets a nice way to eat in nature. We would go back in a heartbeat.

So glad I found Memory Safaris for our trip to Africa. This was definitely the highlight of our trip. Godsen our tour guide was also to thank for that!! He was so much fun- he had us laughing!!! And he taught us so much about Africa and all the animals. If you are thinking about going on a safari look no further this is the one you want. Book with Memory Safaris with Godsen!!!

Where do I start!
Let me be kind and go over the good bits first. The trip started off well, there were no qualms the first two days.
Prior to the trip, payment terms and locations were agreed upon. We offered to pay for the trip via card and Memory Safari’s said they did not have that option and asked us to pay a deposit then wire the rest. We gave the deposit to the driver day one and wired the rest after they sent us the bank details on the later that week.
On the second last day of the trip, they asked for a letter confirming the wire, we called the bank and sent them the letter.
On the last day of the trip on the way to our final destination, the driver tells us he is taking us to Memory’s offices they want to talk to us and confirm we paid. We find ourselves at a police station shortly after, being harassed by a very rude, smug, arrogant, loud and unprofessional cop who wouldn’t even let us get a word in.
They claimed that they had not received the international wire transfer and accused us of canceling it after printing the confirmation.
We tried to ask where the accusers (Memory Safari) were so we could iron out whatever misunderstanding this was but the cop just kept threatening us, insulting us, shouting over us and harassing us.
They kept telling us about a man who ran off without paying and they were sure we would do the same despite having traveled to the same region over 10 times. They wanted an international wire transfer to reflect immediately which is not how it works and they know it and when we had spoke to them prior to the trip, they said they knew it takes a couple of days.
They then changed tune and asked us if we could pay via credit card which they had initially refused several times. They started calling people asking if they could use their credit card machines!
Then to buy time after they couldn’t find a machine to use, the cop who we heard confessing to being bribed buys time insisting that a statement be written, he didn’t even let Barrett write the statement, he kept trying to coerce him to say what he wanted. He would even shout at him and say that is the wrong answer I want you to say this, he even refused us to take pictures of whatever he ended up writing saying that they were for his eyes only.
Please note, we had even offered to stay extra days in Arusha till the funds clear to Godsons account but they refused, they now insisted that we cancel the transfer and pay by card. How many times had we asked since before the trip if we could and they said no!
Eventually after detaining us at the police station for close to 5 hours, we are taken to a dodgy back office at some office complex where it turns out Godson and co had gone to sign up for a credit card machine and we were asked to swipe there. We literally saw the sign up forms and even the guy who signed them up told us that they had just signed up.
All that unnecessary drama!
Why did they not just sign up from the get go?
Why did they not find an amicable way of resolving this? We are still in Arusha, it’s not like we were going anywhere.
Turns out they wanted the money urgently and urgently enough to leave a sour taste in our mouth and experience.
Professionalism is important, I am happy for all of you who had a great experience. As for us, I never want to hear nor come across this company ever again.
They change terms of agreement and ruin our trip then play victim. How pathetic. This trip has definitely been one hell of a Memory.
