Imagine the first time you hear a lion roar in the dark of night, the first time you witness a thousand hooves galloping across the golden Savanah, the first time you see the Maasai hunt, the first hot air balloon ride over the patchwork plains, and the first time to glimpse sight of the snow-clad spirit of Mount Kilimanjaro. An African safari is full of firsts, and with Bush 2 City we can show you the splendor of this rare and unbridled world. We live and breathe Tanzania because we are part of Tanzania, this is our home and we want to invite you in.

Whatever your whim or pleasure, we will take the time to listen and plan your perfect journey. We specialize in the art of luxury Tanzania tours. For us, luxury isn’t just about the number of stars above your name but is about breathtaking sights, rare and authentic experiences, fine local cuisine, cultural interactions, and beautiful spaces to rest your head at the end of the day.

We just got back from our private 12-day safari to Kenya and Tanzania organized by the Bush 2 City Adventures . The trip was great and what we saw and experienced in East Africa exceeded all our expectations. Jackson spent a lot of time and effort to create a perfect itinerary for us. We kept changing our safari starting time and our lodges preferences and Jackson was quick to make all the needed changes. He provided a number of invaluable suggestions and helped us all along in our planning process.
Our guides Gideon in Kenya and Said in Tanzania were excellent and we highly recommend them.
I think that Bush 2 City Adventures is an exceptional company and deserves more than 5 stars. I highly recommend it to everybody who is planning trip to East Africa.

We were two couples traveling together on the trip, but meeting in Kenya from the US. Unfortunately, due to travel issues (not booked by or related to Bush 2 City), my husband and I barely made it there in time to leave for our safari. We were quite tired and had had an insane experience over the previous several days to get there, and our checked luggage had not arrived when we got there. Once we met with Bush 2 City in the lobby the morning we were leaving on safari, everything got much easier.

Luggage situation - they took a copy of the baggage claim file, and once it arrived in Nairobi, were were in Masai Mara, and they were able to pick up the luggage from the airline, transfer it to a smaller airport, and have it delivered to us at the Masai Mara airstrip. This took very little from me to have to sort out, and I can't tell you what a weight off that was and how much I appreciate all of the things that I'm not aware of that went on behind the scenes to make that happen.

Guides - We had two guides, as you switch guides and vehicles at border crossings. We had Kevin in Kenya and Nickson in Tanzania. I can't say enough good things about both of them! You spend a lot of time every day with your guides as you are all in a confined space of a Land Cruiser for many hours. Both Kevin and Nickson are bright, articulate, and personable. We are very conversational folks and ask a lot of questions. I don't think there was a question that Kevin couldn't answer! You'd be lucky to get either of them as guides on your trip!

Accommodations - We chose the semi-luxury option for our trip. Most of the places were great. A constructive piece of feedback I'd offer is (if possible given availability, etc.) not booking so many nights back to back within the same chain. The food options between them are very similar and become repetitive after so many days/nights.

Overall - We had zero issues working with the company to set up this adventure, had zero issues with them during the trip - only many positive things to say! We would absolutely recommend them to friends and family, and if we return, would 100% work with them again.

We absolutely loved working with Jackson. We extended our stay to 15 days, and he worked with us to custom our itinerary. We were incredibly happy with his service, attention to detail, his communication, the guides he provided were phenomenal. We got up close and personal with the animals. The local people we met were incredible. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

The safari was incredibly beautiful from start to finish. Already the planning went smoothly, Jackson has responded to all our questions and ideas and has adapted the route optimally to us. On site, the pickup at the airport went without a hitch, we had a great guide with a lot of experience and knowledge, who showed us the most beautiful corners of the national parks. All accommodations (mostly tented camps) were very nice in unique locations and great facilities (here we had left everything to Jackson for planning, very good quality for an affordable price). We spent a total of 9 great days on safari and were able to see the diversity of the different parks including many different animals and breathtaking moments. It was an unforgettable experience and we can only recommend Jackson and his team to everyone! Thanks to Jackson and our guide and driver Azizi!

After over 60 years having passed, during which time I spent watching nature shows and documentaries on television with my father, who loved nature and instilled the love of animals in me, my feet finally landed in Nairobi, Kenya on September 2, 20022. This trip was on my "bucket list" for many years and now it had became a reality. My good friend Jerry arranged and coordinated this 12 day African adventure with Jackson of Bush 2 City Adventures that made my dream come true. Jackson was always available to answer all of our travelling group of six, questions concerning every detail of our safari. We wanted to not only experience up close encounters with Africa's diverse wildlife, but also make connections with the people of Kenya and Tanzania and learn about their culture and how they lived their daily lives. We were guided by two excellent drivers/game-spotters. In Kenya, Simon, using his incredible eyesight, spotted animals while driving that we couldn't see looking through binoculars. The very first day of safari produced almost all of the animals I came to see; four of the five of Africa's Big Five. The only missing animal was a rhino. We saw many herds of Masai cattle along the roadside and were told by Simon how the nomadic Masai men moved from place to place looking for the best grazing locations to ensure that the wealth which is in their cattle was maintained. We visited a Masai village and interacted with the adults and the children that lived there. My lasting memory of this experience will be how friendly the people were; especially the children who ran toward our group to greet us. In Tanzania, NIckson became our guide and like Simon, had eagle eyes, spotting big and small animals and birds. Bush 2 City Adventures went above and beyond our expectations to make a "bucket list" safari an experience of a lifetime. Now when I watch a nature show on TV, I can say, "I was there." Unbelievable!

Me and my partner spent 13 days on a private safari tour of Kenya/Tanzania, organized through Bush2City Adventures and what an incredible experience it was.

We dealt with Jackson during the planning process, who was so quick to respond to all of our questions and optimize the itinerary to ensure we had the best experience on safari. He also provided guidance on how to obtain our Visas to enter Tanzania and Kenya and frequently checked in with us to ensure all our needs were met.

All of the guides we had were absolutely incredible. Nick took us around Nairobi on day one, then George took us to Lake Navaisha and Nakuru. Simon showed us the Masai Mara and Amboseli, and Nickson took us exploring around the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

They were all very experienced guides, each with over 10-15 years of experience running Safari tours. It was incredible how they would spot the animals from such far distances. I really appreciated how they would give additional context as to why the animals were behaving in certain ways or explain key facts about the animals.

The game drives were all incredible and I appreciated how the guides really tailored the experience to what we wanted. Sometimes they would let us go for longer drives when we weren’t ready to go back, they always had a nice stock of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages and often served us luxury hot lunches with wine or beer (which many other tour companies didn’t seem to do!).

Every game drive delivered some sort of new, interesting experience. We saw so many cool things like lion hunts, leopard bringing it’s prey up a tree, multiple Wildebeest river crossings (which was such a life experience to see!) baby rhino’s, baby lions, baby cheetahs, cheetahs feasting on a kill and the list goes on!

We also had a few add-on experiences to our package, all of which were just incredible. We visited the Giraffe Centre and Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, as well as the Karen Blixen museum. We visited a Masaai tribe in the Mara, learning about how they live and their cultural traditions. We opted to do a hot air balloon ride in the Masai Mara and in the Serengeti, we had a beautiful dinner set-up in the middle of the wilderness (which was scary, but beautiful and felt safe since they had rangers patrolling and monitoring the area around us).

Without these incredible and very knowledgeable guides, we definitely would not have had such an amazing experience. I’ll also say that Bush2City has very new, clean and well maintained safari jeeps.

All the lodges and camps were so luxurious with incredible food and stunning views. The people at every lodge or luxury tented camp were so friendly and provided just the most incredible service.

I truly felt like this Luxury Safari was the experience of a lifetime and I credit Bush2City Adventures for making that happen! I’ll definitely be booking future African tours with them again. Thanks!

What an amazing and wonderful experience from start to finish. Bush2city were incredible! The team were so helpful and knowledgeable throughout the planning process and then when we lived the plan it got even better. Our guide George made our experience one to remember, the route we took and the accommodation we stayed in were simply fantastic. We will definitely be using bush2city for our next African adventure. A huge thanks to the team from all of us. Emma, Ailsa, Sophie and Ish

Our safari was perfect thanks to Jackson and his team. From the accommodations, to the meals, to the excellent driving, tracking and experience of our guides the safari exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to use Bush2City for my future adventures in Africa.

What an amazing trip, expertly planned and coordinated by Jackson, at Bush2City, it was more than expected. The guide/driver, Simon in Kenya and Nickson in Tanzania were both excellent drivers as well as amazing guides and animal spotters. The blend of accommodations both luxury and comfort was just what our group wanted and the staffs at the facilities chosen were extremely friendly and very attentive. The chefs at the locations cooked truly incredible food for our consumption at all 3 meals. At one location, tree tops in Tarangire, Nick was both funny and attentive providing members of our group with individual menus based on dietary restrictions…truly amazing. We were all afraid we were going to put on weight ! Having been on Safari in other countries, the attraction of seeing the great migration was truly incredible, hundreds of thousands of widebeest lining up as far as the eye can see and getting to see the Mara river crossing was unforgettable. The cultural programs with the Maasai and village tour were quite memorable. Bush 2City really over-delivered both to the experienced as well as the first time safari people in our group. The other thing that stuck out for me was the warmth and kindness of the Kenyan and Tanzanian people, what a blessing to experience…

We had a great experience engaging Bush2City in making our travel arrangements. Not only were the arrangements exceptional, our guides were awesome who made sure all our needs get addressed. We look forward to engaging Bush2City again and explore other countries in Africa!
