We have just finished wonderful 4 day safari (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro) Our tour guide Adam was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Not only about safari and animals but also about Tanzania itself. Our chef Moody was preparing delicious meals (sometimes you just need to be a bit patient but is worth it!) and helping us to feel like at home. We have experienced small technical problems with the car but nothing serious. In case we come again we definitely choose this team!

We were asked for a 300 euro initial deposit that would be returned upon the return of the car. We did not receive the deposit back and even though almost 3 months have passed and we had numerous calls with them on the matter, there is still no change.

We have rented safari vehicles in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Kenya, and this was by far our best experience to date. Incredible service, solid vehicle, great value. Didas was the mastermind helping us organize our trip from start to finish. He was always responsive, always easy to reach. He helped us with our flights, getting our PCR tests, and he found amazing places for us to stay, exactly where all the game was, and at a level above anything we could find ourselves on the internet. He also secured us pricing for accommodations much closer to what locals pay, which is a huge savings in African travel. Thanks to him we were able to enjoy true luxury accommodations for the price of a hotel in the US. Melkiory and Lucas were very attentive about organizing our permits and entrance fees, and everyone was immediately contactable from the road with any query. And we even ran into one of the Gladiola guides George while we were on the road and he was quick to offer his advice and insights to our chosen routes, even though we were not even his clients. The vehicle was very reliable and a pleasure to drive, with luxuries like a fridge, inverter, and double game viewing hatches. We cannot say enough good things about this company. Our only word of caution would be whether or not to use a guide. While the pictures may make it seem like it is easy to drive around the Serengeti and Lake Natron areas, they really should not be attempted on your own without a good foundation in 4x4. A road that is perfectly passable one day can become deep mud ruts the next, and the areas are truly remote. Out on the Namiri plains and in the heart of Loliondo, we did not see any other cars while driving. Not one. And there are no road signs anywhere, so you need a good sense of navigation. If you are missing any of these, we recommend you hire a driver to be safe. Having said that, if you know what you are doing, can follow GPS coordinates and know how to work your way around the maps.me app, then download your maps of Tanzania and get on the road! If you choose Gladiola, you won't regret it. They are simply the best.
