We highly recommend Mnyalu Safaris.

They composed a mind blowing 7 day safari for us (family of 4 with 2 children) with a great composition/build up with respect to park excitement (ranging from Lake Manyara, Tarangire to Ndutu, Serengeti and Ngorogoro). Lodging was spot on too. Our game drives were topped with local tribes visits.

Mnyalu Safari is reliable, responsive, communicative and understood our needs very well. Eg. we wanted to depart for a first safari/game drive at the day of arrival. Where other agents tried to convince us this is not possible, Mnyalu just did it.

So communications and responsiveness was flawless, this builded trust and previous Tripadvisor reviews made us decide to wire a significant down-term payment. We are happy to say: they delivered extremely well on their promise.

We like to stress we also had a great guide/driver: Ally [ Ali ]. He drives safe (!!), is reliable, respectful to others, very knowledgeable on wildlife/nature and punctual. A great personality with humor :-)

Already during the trip we concluded we could not have wished for a better experience: the Mnyalu team made our dream come true. Thank you so much!!

Had the best experience climbing Kilimanjaro with Mnyalu - they deserve 10 stars!! Furah has been incredibly helpful with everything concerning the planning of the trip, from catering to our very last minute requests and changing plans to going the extra mile to help us finding accommodation in Arusha. Our guides, Michael and Loasa, were incredibly prepared, not only on the routes and pace to keep during the hikes, but also on health-related aspects (e.g., checking our oxygen levels every night) - in a nutshell: we had full trust in them. The rest of the team was incredible: Ruben supporting in the daily stays, the Chef preparing great meals to keep us going and all of the team being super quick and nice (even cheering us up on summit day!). Thanks for getting us to the top guys!

Would definitely recommend. From the start, the owners were incredibly helpful and responded very quickly and elaborately to all our (many) questions. They were not pushy, even when we were less responsive while considering our options. Even after we booked, they were always available to give recommendations and information. They also treat their staff well, which seems to pay off, as our guide (Ally) was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. He knew exactly were to find all the animals and did everything he could to give us the best possible safari experience.

After the Safari, we also booked some day trips with them, f.e the Kilimanjaro day hike. This is also highly recommended!

Great experience visiting Mount Meru Waterfalls. We had so much fun trekking down Mount Meru Waterfalls with our guides Furaha and Roi. Very serene, quiet, and one with nature. Loved the experience, so worth it.

If you are going on a Safari, choose this company! Our safari took us to Tarangire and Ngorongoro. Furaha (Mnyalu Safaris) is a knowledgeable tour operator who went beyond what is usual both professionally and as a human . You know you are in safe hands when choosing this company. I would recommend them for organizing other kinds of trips in this area also. Our tour guide/driver (Ali) had a deep understanding and respect for the animals he showed us. His service and his knowledge made the safari exceptional.

My friends and I had a fantastic time hiking up Kilimanjaro with Mnyalu Safaris! Can't imagine things being managed any better than how Mnyalu Safaris handled everything:

Furaha was fantastic at coordinating with our crew - super quick responses to questions before we started our trip, and even after our trip she was helpful about helping some of us find last-second lodging as my friends and I figured out what we'd do after Kili.

Our guides were great about keeping us safe, in great moods, hydrated, well-fed, and in-the-know about what we were doing / what was coming next at all points on the trek.

Even the food way exceeded expectations - we kept saying during the trip that we were probably eating better up on the mountain than we eat at home. 10/10, would recommend using Mnyalu Safaris.
