We have travelled to Africa 5 times prior to this trip and I can honestly say Sammy our guide was without a doubt the best guide we have had. He is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make your experience sensational. He is an absolute pleasure to be with (we were with him for 10 days) he is polite and respectful in every way and lots of fun!
I would highly recommend Sammy as your personal tour guide.

This was the most amazing trip, a true "bucket lister" that left lifelong memories for me and my family. None of those memories would have been possible without our amazing tour guides! Emanuel and Gerald were our drivers and they made this trip. No kidding, their kindness, attentiveness, and knowledge on the Safari and the local markets is wonderful. They were always one step ahead of us on where to find the animals on the Safari and they helped us navigate the markets so we weren't mobbed by the local merchants. They were always on time (early, actually) and helped us to feel so comfortable and safe. I can promise you'll have a great experience with them and this tour group and I highly recommend them.

Sammy Lema planned a wonderful safari in Tanzania. Last year we visited Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro crater. His drivers were excellent and followed animals. We saw elephants, baboons, wildebeests, giraffes,lions and a leopard in a tree. Monkeys were everywhere. We also visited a tribe that made arrow heads and another tribe that hunts baboons. We thought that the trip was complete and fulfilling.

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.

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.

What an incredible adventure my family and I had last summer (May/June 2022 - sorry I'm a little late in posting my review) in Tanzania and this was in large part due to our using Maishafrika Adventures as our tour company. Sammy Lema and his team was with us every step of the way making sure we were all well taken care of. For instance, I got sick while on the safari, and Sammy personally drove me back to the city (Arusha) to get medicine to get well. Our guides Emanuel and Gerald were experts in their ability to spot animals (they saw tigers miles and miles away) and were also extremely knowledgeable and sincerely kind and caring. On top of all that, they were hilarious and fun to be with! I like to look for tour agencies who care about people. Concurrently with running his tour agency, Sammy is also involved with building a school (Promised Village Academy) for the Maasai children in Tanzania. Sammy shows love for his beautiful country through his dedication to ensure his clients have an unforgettable experience and through his work building a school to educate Tanzanian children from the Maasai tribe. I would hands down pick Maishafrika Adventures for over any other tour company in Tanzania.

This was an excellent safari well planned by the tour leader Sammy Lema. His drivers Emmanuel and Gerald drove 2 Land Cruisers which were spacious and air conditioned. The tops opened for us to get close views and photos of many animals.
The drivers had excellent command of English and were very patient when we wanted to spend time taking hundreds of photos. They knew how to spot the animals.
The hotels and restaurants were very good.
I highly recommend Maishafrika Adventure tours!

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.
