Even before we started our tour, we realized the kindness and warmheartedness with which the Montez family approach their customers. The full organization via e-mail and Whatsapp with Rose was excellent, very professional, reliable and friendly. That continued on the day of our arrival. Originally we wanted to take a very late flight, but very short termed we changed our plans and took the earlier flight. Luckily it was no problem, they answered immediately and promised us an earlier pick up service. When we arrived Jason was already waiting for us with a plate with our names on it and drove us to Arusha. On the next day - after breakfast - Abdul, our guide for the next two days picked us up from our hotel Mt. Meru to start our way to Tarangire national park, the first stop of our tour. He was very kind, attentive, and intelligent, gave us a lot of information about the country, the people and their lifestyle. He was also willing and open to tell us about his muslim culture, what was very interesting. The drive in general was very pleasant in this big land cruiser. The car was very clean and comfortable and contained a cooling box with several drinks (beer, soda, water), which they had previously prepared according to our wishes. In Tarangire we could see a lot of elephants and giraffes from very close and a lot of other beautiful animals. Abdul was always very patient, so that we could take the best pictures and videos to keep our amazing memories. For lunch they prepared a lunch box for us, which included food for all tastes. This picnic place was very lovely and with a beautiful view over a river. Perfect place to have a chat and enjoy your meal with a delicious coffee. But be aware of the monkeys, who also would like to get your food 😊 In the afternoon Abdul brought us to the Kitela Lodge, our place for the night. We had a warm welcome with sparkling wine and some tasty samosa snacks. We arrived shortly before sunset, which you could observe perfectly from there, a breathtaking view. The room was very beautiful and big, so was the bed. We even had a water dispenser and a chimney in the living room. In the bathroom a gorgeous freestanding bathtub awaited us, as well as two wash basins. Due to security reasons the lodge also accommodated four german sheperd dogs, which were incredibly cute and could also be petted. A heaven for dog lovers. Dinner and breakfast were both very delicious, the service was top and the staff was very courteous. We truly enjoyed our stay there. Before we continued our trip in the next morning to the Ngorongoro crater we could put together our lunch package for the day. At Ngorongoro we spent half the day. We were very happy, that we could see the black rhino, as well as beautiful zebras and wildebeests with their newly born cubs. Or also lions who layed down in the middle of the road to relax. We never saw them from so close, we could have reached out and touched them. The crater itself offers a magical view and a beautiful scenery. After the game drive, Abdul brought us back safely to the Hotel Mt. Meru and even waited by the reception until we got our room keys, so that we do not face any problems. We were very thankful for having him as a guide for these two days. In the evening we got the opportunity to spend a nice time with Rose and Anitha and finally meet them in person. Also in real life they are very lovely and friendly people, always having a smile on their face, we were on good terms. They picked us up from our hotel and brought us to nice local places in Arusha for dinner. After this day we still spent some days in Arusha on our own. They also offered us to organize some programs for these days but unfortunately we already booked something in advance. On our last day in Arusha they also brought us to the Airport, to continue our journey, as it is also included in the package. Even after our safari we are still in close contact with each other. For Montez, the well-being of the clients is their priority, with a tremendous dedication and care and a very friendly and professional manner, they take care of the clients and offer them perfectly composed program packages for an unforgettable safari experience. They pay attention to every detail to ensure that the customers lack for nothing and ensure a reliable communication. We felt very comfortable during our safari trip with Montez. We recommend everyone who is thinking about a safari to book it with Montez Africa Safaris and you will fully enjoy it. Thank you very much for this magnificent experience. Kinga & Benedikt

We had an eight day family safari with Montez and our three friends.Our driver/guide Peter was fantastic and found all of the big five for us (as well as the small and ugly fives) multiple times. Most of them were so close we could have reached out and touched them! Peter was so knowledgeable about all the plants and animals. The suggested itineraries Montez sent us perfect and reached our need,we had a fantastic safari with Montez . For best safari and great trip book with Montez!

Right from the beginning of our hunt for an operator we found Montez Safaris very responsive. Communications were timely, effective and correct. From the time we arrived at the Airport in Arusha we were warmly greeted by Montez Safaris guide,transferred to our hotel and then met with Anitha who went over all details of our six day safari. The next morning we flew to seronera airstrip , met our outstanding guides Goodluck and Phabby , loaded our bags and the adventure was on! The two vehicles were cleaned each morning, the fridge was stocked daily with beers,sod,wines and unlimited drinking water the vehicles were in fabulous shape. We saw the big five plus many more that the guides always found and explained all details of their habitat. Our family of 10 could not have been happier with our Safari experience with Montez Safaris! Thank you for a magnificent trip.

If you want a wonderful and absolute perfect Safari experience, do not look any further. We used Montez Safaris for our trip to Tarangire,Seregenti and Ngorongoro on December and could not have been any happier. We put our trust in all their good communication we got from Rose and her team hospitality was reliable. Our guide, Zulfikar , went completely out of his way to ensure we are having the time of our life. He took care of us like we were family. Thanks to him we saw the big 5 and lots of other incredible animals. The accommodations was fantastic the food was amazing,we really had an amazing time with Montez Safaris. This trip was an out of this world experience that we will cherish forever. It is definitely worth it. We have recommended Montez Safaris to several coworkers, friends & family members and would not hesitate to book with them again. Asante sana! Until we meet again!

Spent two weeks on safari and beach with Montez Safaris and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a stress free safari. I worked closely with Montez Safaris on the planning of our safari.The experiences we had in Tanzania was the best to date and a wonderful way to celebrate our birthdays. Our guide/driver was professional and informative and very patient with us when we continuously wanted to stay with individual sightings rather than the normal dash off to capture something else kind of safari, probably why we got to witness/capture so many lion kills. Rose our sales consultant has been excellent from start to finish, even calling me on our drive back to the airport on our final day to ensure everything was ok. If and when we return to Tanzania we will again chose Montez Safaris to make all our arrangements.
