We had an incredible experience with Gilmag Safaris. When we booked our holiday in Tanzania, we also asked several local tour operators for proposals and price. Finally we chose Gilmag Safaris from all offers we got and it was absolutely the best choice. Very professional level of communication and approach of Gilmag Safaris’ team made us believe in them. Mary is a very friendly lady, well informed and always ready to answer any question you have. She prepared the tour specifically up to our wishes. Gilbert is the best guide you could ever get. Excellent driver, which is key in Tanzania. Great guide; sweet and kind with a wealth of knowledge about the parks and wildlife. The program was intensive, but gave us an incredible experience of safari in Tanzania with wonderful nature and landscapes, and very kind people. Gilbert did his best to make us discover plenty of different animals and he succeeded. The lodges and tented camps were carefully selected and we enjoyed every moment of our stay – Four Seasons Serengeti stood out. This will be a forever memorable experience. I strongly recommend Gilmag Safaris. The vehicle was well stocked – hot water, coffee, tea, snacks, etc. I would recommend Gilmag to anyone. Professional organization, best guide ever and amazing moments!

We booked our tour through Gilmag Safaris and we have been super impressed with the most perfect trip! Mary was so helpful every step of the way; we didn't have to worry about anything and really did have the trip of a lifetime. We gave her a brief outline of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to visit, and she gave us a few great options from which to choose. They planned a 15 day itinerary exactly to our liking that had us in Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Zanzibar Island. The safari truly felt like an exclusive game viewing experience in absolute luxury. Great lodges and awesome tented camps. The meals were exceptional as was the service. Nickson, our guide who accompanied us all the days in our discovery of Tanzania was the best guide ever. Our relationship began as a professional job and finished as a very good friendship. In summary, you will be rewarded with a sense of comfort and satisfaction if you work with this company. We highly recommend Gilmag Safaris.

We found Gilmag Safaris randomly on Google search and have just returned from a private tour with Gilmag. We were so impressed with the service. We absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Gilmag Safaris. A fantastic company with great people and Mary at the centre of it. I recommend this tour company 100% as we received great customer service from beginning to the end. Our guide, Gilbert was outstanding and knew Tanzanian parks like the palm of his hand. He is knowledgeable and nature loving. You really can't go wrong if you are looking for an adventurous and fun-filled trip

Gilmag Safaris gave us the dream vacation and memories that will last a lifetime! From start to finish, working with them was a pleasure and I cannot highly recommend them enough. The vehicle was clean and spacious and even included snacks, hot tea and coffee. Everything was well organized, and we saw so many animals. Our guide was Nickson. His deep knowledge of the parks and the wildlife allowed us to see all the big 5. The accommodation and food provided was fantastic. This was a once in a life time kind of experience. We had a truly magical experience and would recommend Gilmag Safaris and our guide Nickson to anyone. You cannot go wrong with Gilmag Safaris.

First, I would like to give a big “thank you” to Mary for planning such a wonderful 10 days safari for myself and two friends. She was truly the best coordinator I have ever worked with. She was very thorough and provided very quick responses. The price was very reasonable. We loved and enjoyed this trip. We got so lucky with Gilbert as our tour guide. Our four days in Ndutu were enhanced by an amazing hot air balloon safari (an expensive adventure, but worth the money). The highlight of our tour was bush breakfast organized by Original Maasai Lodge. What an amazing and life changing experience. Bravo Gilmag Safaris.
