We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers who was also joined by my cousin on our safari through Tanzania, from Sydney, Australia. We were greeted by our lovely tour guide, Sammy, on arrival. Our luggage didn’t end up making it on the same flight and Sammy helped us organise for them to be delivered to our hotel. Sammy was fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. On our Safari we visited Lake Manyara, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. Everyday our game drives were a different experience and each day we saw different animals. Our Safari exceeded our expectations and we managed to see the Big 5. We were also fortunate to see a leopard and a family of 10-15 Lions and babies all resting under a tree. Our itinerary didn’t include the Masai warriors however as my husband wanted to visit a village, Sammy organised this for us. We would highly recommend Sammy to our relatives and friends and anyone else who is thinking of doing a safari as he is an extremely knowledgeable tour guide and answered all of our questions, and very entertaining, which made the trip enjoyable by all. Our Safari was a once in a lifetime experience and Sammy was one of the reasons we had such an amazing experience.

I traveled to Tanzania with a non-profit group. Our group ranged in age from people in their 20's to their 80s. Sammy was our guide and he was awesome. We were all very happy with him and our group has traveled with him several times again. Sammy is very professional and courteous. He is someone who instills trust and when you are traveling in an unknown land with very different customs, with literally, wild animals like leopards and lions walking around your jeep, having a guide like Sammy you can trust is just such a relief. We felt very safe and comfortable with him and that made our trip experience great. We could relax and enjoy all the wonderful things we were experiencing. He treats his guests with respect. He was always waiting for us in the morning with a smile and an upbeat personality, assisting us with our bags, and chatting with us about many different topics. We had lots of questions about everything we were seeing and experiencing and he was always there to answer our questions and share interesting stories. At the end of a long day, he was there, assisting us back to our rooms still at our service, still with his positive energy. He also goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and enjoying yourself. When I went, the weather was very hot. We would stop in small towns and he would run into a shop, buy ice and cold drinks and fill a cooler. We never had to leave the jeep. A cold drink (of our choice!) was handed to us! When buying souvenirs, he would protect us from overzealous vendors and even haggle for us. Sammy is an expert at what he does. He is knowledgeable about Tanzania, it's people, cultures and landscape. He is an expert in the Safari. I would recommend working with him to anyone without hesitation.

Sammy the owner of the business is amazing! I know him from his returning customer who did three separate trips with him. We were talking to Sammy for planning our trip for about a years, planning, choosing , timing etc. Throughout the whole experience, he was patient, polite and took care of our needs. We requested tanzanian food for few days, he could not do that in National parks, but he planned on our way back before we left for the country. We also needed some health related items that needed to stay in our car at all the time, he managed it a long before we left country. He is always helpful to other guides, compassionate, educated, and knows the areas well. Wish him and his business all the best.
