My girlfriend and I wanted to go on a 3-day safari in Tanzania and we carefully searched for an agency that could offer us the best program, could take care of our travel needs and at a reasonable price. Our choice was Tripquest and we were not disappointed at all. First of all, our Travel Consultant Martin accompanied us throughout the preparation of the trip. He was very available and responsive, eager to create a tailor-made trip for us (from the itinerary to the lodgings to the logistical details). Once we arrived in Tanzania, we were immediately taken in charge by the Tripquest team, Benson and Julius, who were very welcoming and did an excellent job. The lodges offered and chosen were perfect and we were constantly in contact with them in case any problems arose, they were very available and took constantly some news. The choice of guide was also great. Nick, our guide, was great, very professional, very kind and smiling, great knowledge of the fauna and flora of the different natural parks, he has an excellent English and a respect for nature and the balance of the animals that we particularly appreciated. Spending 3 days with him was a real pleasure and we were sad to leave him. He really wanted us to see everything, and the promise was kept! In short, don't look any further than Tripquest, we had a great safari with beautiful moments and this is thanks to them.

5 days Safari covering Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

I cannot say enough incredible things about our experience with TripQuest!!!

After researching and contacting over 10 safari companies, my husband and I chose to book with TripQuest. No one could come close to the price, itinerary, and full package that they provided!

It was a pleasure working with Martin to book our trip. He helped to put together the perfect package with a mixture of budget to luxury lodges/camps in order to stay within our budget. He responded to my millions of emails fully and timely to help clear up any and every question I had. He helped set up our airport pickup and drop offs, gave us all the information to schedule our covid tests, and let us know exactly what to expect. Upon arrival and departure in Arusha we met with Benson and Julius for our briefing and they were a pleasure to work with as well!

For the actual safari, I can't say enough amazing things about our incredible guide, Emmanuel. From the second he picked us up from the airport he provided us with invaluable amount of information about everything we saw. He was so knowledge, friendly, and informative and we couldn't have hoped for a better guide. Emmanuel did an incredible job of pointing out every animal and made sure we had great viewpoints to get shockingly close to the animals. We learned so much from Emmanuel about the animals we encountered, the landscapes, and the Maasai people. We really enjoyed all the time we were able to spend with Emmanuel and were sad to say goodbye.

I also have to give special call out and thank you for TripQuest's attention to my food allergy. I have celiac disease and need to adhere to a strict gluten free diet. Any time I travel internationally it's incredibly stressful and I couldn't have been happier with the way they handled it. TripQuest made sure to double check and confirm with all of our camps/lodges just before we arrived, and every single meal was perfect! The staff at each of our stays were aware and made sure to accommodate me with delicious, filling, and gluten free meals!

This was the trip of a lifetime, all made possible by the TripQuest team, we can't thank them enough for providing us with the most incredible experience and honeymoon we could have ever dreamed of!

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our 6-day private safari all thanks to Trip Quest!
The booking and reservation went very easy thanks to Martin who had been very helpful and answered my million questions. The booking was very organized and made it easy for me to choose accommodations and itinerary. All the lodges we chose are very remarkable and the experience very seamless we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
Our guide Frank is also exceptional and made the safari experience wonderful. He was great at spotting animals and we spotted a lot of huge male lions and lioness a little further from anyone away from dozens of cars. We have seen so many animals which lived up to my expectations especially as a young girl who loved the lion king haha. We had these magnificent animals up close thanks to Frank’s effort to give us a great experience.
Benson, the manager came to us on the first day of our arrival to Arusha to brief us about our trip and came also on the last day to get our feedback so they really take every client’s experience seriously to deliver and improve.
I highly recommend Trip quest- I spoke with almost 5 other operators before deciding, even with some big name ones and went with Trip Quest for their competitive rates and ease of booking and I couldn’t have made a better decision. We did lake Manyara, Serenget, Ngorongoro and Terengire for 6-days and what a dream it had been! We didn’t need to worry about a thing as everything was so organized.
Thanks so much Trip Quest and hoping to see you again when we go back sometime soon!

The tour organized by Trip Quest to Serengeti and Ngorongoro was a Life Time Memorable Experience for us. The tour arrangements were made by Martin from Trip Quest, he was the only point of contact at all the time and he handled all our queries single-handedly in a professional manner. He was easily approachable and hence we did not have any inconvenience during the process.

Our guide for Safari was Frank who was the main highlight of this tour, a very young and energetic person with a lot of local knowledge. He ensured that we see all the Big 5 animals during our trip including the rarest Rhino and Leopard.

Highly recommends Trip Quest Safari to those who like to receive First class service at a very reasonable price.

Thank you so much for the awesome review. Tanzania surely gives a lifetime memorable experience. We are happy you could spot the big 5. All our guides have a minimum of 8 years of experience in the wild, for us the quality of the safari is important and the guide contributes the major portion of it. We are glad that we could host you for the safari in Tanzania. Hope you see you again! Best Regards Team Trip Quest

My family and I had been in Tanzania last month (July 2022) for a 4 day safari trip. It was organized by Trip Quest. Right from the planning stage, to picking us up at Kilimanjaro airport, seeing all the wonderful animals and finally getting dropped back at the airport, the entire experience was absolutely awesome and extremely well planned. Our guide Silas was very knowledgeable and friendly. He also taught us few words in Swahili. We toured Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater and saw many different types of animals from very close quarters. We were fortunate to see the big five, including the black rhino from a distance.
Since I am avid traveler and write travel stories in different magazines, this tour was a goldmine for my articles. I had several queries about behaviour of animals, life of local people and their food habits. Our guide tirelessly gave me inputs to all my queries. He was very enthusiastic and passionate about his work.
It has been over a month since we finished the trip, but the experience of those four days is still very fresh and I'm sure it will be etched in my mind as one of the best trips I have ever made.
Many thanks to Trip Quest for this wonderful and extremely memorable trip.

The landscapes of Lake Manyara and Nogorongo crater were so different, it was very interesting to see both and maximise our chances of seeing animals. If we had more time we would have added Serengeti National Park but this 2 day/2 night itinerary was great value. The booking process was smooth and easy. Trip Quest communicated quickly and efficiently to help us book this last-minute trip. Everything went smoothly and our guide was knowledgeable and sociable. If your budget allows, a stay at Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge is heavenly!

The experience with Trip Quest was amazing! Were 3 incredible days with so many unforgettable moments.
Trip Quest was very reachable since day 1, they also attend our request of having a personalized safari program.
Our special thank will go to Elias Shema. Our guide for the past 3 days. A person full of stories and who wants to please you and meet your expectation in every moment of the safari.
The accommodation was another incredible moment. The opportunity we had in Domel Tent Lodge, was outrageous. Watching the sunset on Serengeti, surrounded by people who wants to make you feel at home is priceless.
After this 3 days I can say that this was a lifetime experience! Thank you TripQuest for making our honeymoon filled with unique moments!

We booked a 6 days safari trip with Trip Quest and it was a wonderful experience. We started with Tarangire national park, then we moved to Serengeti where we spent 3 days (2 nights). After that we continued visiting Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara.
David, our guide, is prepared for every situation: he knows every inch of the parks, he told us lots of interesting things about the wildlife in Africa and he managed to repare the car in more than one situation (the muddy, bumpy roads of Serengeti are quite tricky even with a Land Cruiser!).
The thing we loved the most was the Serengeti NP: the endless plains are breathtaking not only for their wildlife but also for the landscapes. Moreover we also did the "sundowner" experience and it was really remarkable: the sunset on the plains is amazing, plus on the way back to the camp we saw 5 lions sleeping on a tree!
We opted for the "class one" (budget) accommodation option and all the accommodations had all the comforts.
At the end of our journey, we asked Benson if it was possible to organise a cultural visit near Arusha the next day before our flight to Zanzibar. He managed to organise us a visit to a Meru village/coffee plantation were we had the chance to make our own coffee (beans peeling, roasting and grinding procedures included!). I really recommend this experience.
Many thanks to all the staff of Trip Quest for making our trip unforgettable!
