We went on a 10 Days Private safari with Entocing Journey in middle February and everything was above our expectations. We had a great and knowledgeable guide who not only show us the beauty of this amazing destination but also taught us so much not only about animals and other species but also about environement, the people and much more. We will definietly come bavk and we will chose this Company again and again.

The safari was amazing. The tourguides were very friendly and their knowledge of the English language is very good. Especially our guide, Steven, made our trip wonderfull. He is very professional and knows his way around the National Parks. He knew everything there is to know about the area, the nature/landscapes and the wildlife as well.

The communication service was good...Our Guide Linus was on time ..picked us up at Arusha Airport to Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Manyara, and back to Arusha Airport we really enjoyed our six days tours and the scenery too. I will recommend Enticing Journeys to any wildlife enthusiast anytime.

I would not recommend this tour operator. The director of the company, George Mollel, was very responsive leading up to the tour. However, the night prior to the start of the safari he informed us that our itinerary was changing. While we had a booked a 6-day safari, everyone else had booked 5 days. He did not explain that the others we were joining were already in the middle of their tour and that we would be joining them on a tour operated by an entirely different company than Enticing Journeys/7 Wonders (I think he owns both). This change in itinerary lead to a change in lodging that broke up a multiple night stay at one lodge (a big reason for our initial selection of the original itinerary). Further, the tour guide of the new company was forced to make multiple stops each day to pick up/drop off people at up to three different lodges/campsites. If you happened to be the first to get picked up or the last to get dropped off on a particular day, this meant up to an additional 2 hours of just driving. This is uncommon for group tours as typically the group stays at the same lodging to avoid hours long detours. Lastly, the new tour guide had no information about our original itinerary and lodging. We were dropped off at the wrong lodge on the first night because there was no communication between parties. This lead to even more time in the car. We emailed and texted George at least 5 different times throughout the 6 days to get information and he never responded. Sometimes he would call the new operator and give the answer to our question to them, but would refuse to speak directly to us after the tour began. Lastly, our safari was supposed to include a visit to a Maasai Village. This never happened as it wasn’t part of the other operator’s itinerary. 0/10 would recommend working with George Mollel from Enticing Journeys/Seven Wonders.

Thank you Riley for your honest review to enticing journeys, and we are sorry for any inconvenient we have caused to on your safari. -I agree that you had booked a 6 day safari , but these did not affect your safari since after they finished their five days safari they come back, and you stayed behind to finish you sixth day. -A gain I own enticing journeys, and not Seven wonders safari, the laws of Tanzania does not allow one person to own two companies. I have very good relation with seven wonders, and I used to work their as one of the directors, and even today they still use me. -Riley one of the disadvantage of a group tour is that you cant drive on your own pes since you use different accommodation, and people have different interest, but we even upgraded your accommodation on two nights from Nsya lodge to Africa safari camp -Yes you tour had a visit to the maasai village, but when you arrived home we had a communication, and you were refunded the total amount of $100 which we agreed on -Riley you booked your tour with walking safari in Serengeti, and we paid for the activity, but you cancelled on the last minute saying you did not have the right shoes, but these was communicated to you before booking the tour. Here you refused to pay for these activity. -

I and my friends booked a tour of Tarangire, Serengeti & Ngorongoro with Enticing Journeys through another company in Kenya. The Kenyan company was pretty useless with communication & details, but George at Enticing Journeys was amazing. He picked up the pieces and organized the left-out details. He deserves heaps of praise. Prompt communication, with kindness, understanding & humor. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Our driver/guide Nestor was also superb. He was a great game-spotter and had good knowledge of birds too. We would not have seen such amazing wildlife without his knowledge & telescopic vision!
Chef Steve was excellent.....how do you put together so many great meals with such basic tools???

Thank you for a fabulous trip.

There were 9 of us traveling with Enticing Journeys beginning February 28, 2018. The planning began 8 months before with Evelyn Ngotea helping organize the trip with patience and knowledge. Her direction and guidance made for an amazing vacation. We asked her to organize a last-minute day hike to Kilimanjaro which was not a problem. Our guide was Martin. He was very informative, experienced, and patient with a group of not-so-experienced hikers. The Tanzanian Northern Safari was made even more outstanding with our guides George Mollel and Nestor. As an owner, with Evelyn of Enticing Journeys, George shared so much about Tanzania. We were all in awe of the majesty of Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. The excitement of seeing so many animals was difficult to contain. We were educated about the nature and beauty of Tanzania and all it has to offer. Nestor was explaining everything and was quite the photographer handling a cell phone and binoculars to get the perfect photo. Our accommodations were simply incredible. The Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater was delightful. The staff was so hospitable and the food was delicious. The Blaa Blaa cake was a treat. The farewell was made even more special with a Grammy Award-winning rendition of Hakuna Matata. Unforgettable! Thank you, Charles, and everyone who works there. Our walking safari taught us about the flora and fauna of the surrounding area around the crater. Not only were the rangers teaching us they also kept an eye out for our safety as we walked the hills and saw the Masai cattle grazing. The Serengeti Tortilis Camp is forever a part of our memory. From the walking safari with George, Nestor, and Barikiel Fiita along with the rangers to the romantic dinner in the bush organized for a couple traveling with the group. The singing and dancing were a joy, and the tents/accommodations were very comfortable along with the tour of the back area where everything is prepared. Simply wonderful. Thank you to Willie, Mark, Mr. Soup/Buffet, and all the staff. When we departed on our flight from Serengeti leaving George and Nestor there were hugs all around and tears in our eyes. We made new friends who set a high standard for hospitality, love of country, kindness, and grace. From there we flew to the busy city of Dar es Salaam and were transferred about an hour south to the Ras Kutani Resort. A few days on the Indian Ocean in this most beautiful hotel was a perfect place to relax for three nights prior to taking the long journey back to the US. Again, the staff was incredible. Everyone in the group was amazed by the service and hospitality. The food was outstanding, the scenery breathtaking and the rooms just beautiful. Swinging in the hammock with the warm breeze blowing while reading a book was the escape we all dream about. The treat was visiting the village with one of the Ras Kutani staff, John P. Watching Mama Salaama and weaving baskets was inspiring. The village, school, clinic, meeting with local officials proved how proud John P. was to share his village with our group. We will forever have you in our hearts. Thank you, Enticing Journeys, for a trip of a lifetime.

Thank you so much to George and the Enticing Journeys team for this incredible trip. They come highly recommended from me.
We've enjoyed the most wonderful honeymoon imaginable! George was our guide, and he knows a lot about the animals, the road, and everything you need to enjoy the greatest safari possible.
We had the opportunity to visit some indigenous tribes every time George made us feel special and exclusive.
If he suggests that you get up early, DO IT! He understands why; you will have the most incredible live experience!
Thank you so much for the most memorable ten days of our lives!
Thank you so much for creating such wonderful memories for us.
Africa will always be among our most favourite destination.

Enticing Journeys is an amazing tour operator. I fully recommend them.
We did a private safari of 6 days : Tarangire - Manyara - Serengeti (2days) - Ngorongoro - Lake Natron. Acoomodation in a tent.

What was amazing :
- Our guide/driver Hozza was amazing. So much knowledge about the fauna and flora, the culture and everything. None of our questions weren't answered.
He did everything to make sure we see what we wanted to. I wanted to see the lionesses hunting, and he make it possible: we were able to see it less than 10m in front of us. I would highly recommend asking for Hozza as your driver.
- The cook was amazing, we had plenty of tasty food at each meal.

I would recommend doing all those parks. I think having two days in Serengeti if possible is nice, and it is what allowed us to catch the hunting scene.

Thanks again to Enticing Journeys management and staff, this was an amazing experience thanks to all of you.

Ranger safari organized an amazing 6-day safari for us, and our guide George Mollel was just amazing.

We spent a day in Tarangire, 4 days in the Serengeti, and a day in the Ngorongoro crater and had an amazing time.

The accommodation booked by ranger safari was amazing, with each lodge visited outdoing the last.
George(our Guide) definitely made our trip with his enthusiasm, knowledge, and energy. His keen eye (literally can spot a lion lying in the grass what seemed like a kilometer away) and experience kept us captivated the whole time.

We had game drives from 6 am to 6 pm every day and saw all the big 5, countless lions, cheetahs, and leopards and witnessed some amazing scenes - a testament to George’s stamina as he was always ready and smiling at 5:30 am, waiting for the next day and getting our own energy levels up.

A big thank you, George, and good luck to your new company Enticing Journeys. We had an amazing experience with you, and I would recommend my family, and friends to travel with your new company.

AWESOME!!! Mollel is the only guide I want to see Tanzania with! His knowledge and love for his country, the people and the animals is incredible. He balances getting you close to all kinds of animals with the safety of his guests and the animals top of mind! His ability to see the smallest to the largest animals from a distance ensures you never miss one! So fun going back throuhg all my photos, it is hard to choose just one, so I didn't! Thank you Mollel for life changing expereinces every thime we have been on safari with you....looking forward to more adventures!
