Just wow! We booked Earthlife for our honeymoon and we’re absolutely blown away. From the moment of contact with Angel (who always responded to us promptly) to our tour guide Joseph, every minute was better than the last. They were beyond professional, timely, organised, and we felt safe and taken care of. I have no words to describe Joseph our tour guide. I read a lot of reviews about him and he exceeded our expectations. He was an absolute joy to be around and was knowledgable. He went out of his way to ensure we saw all animals we wanted to..and was also a great driver! We will consider him a lifetime friend, and don’t think we could have imagined our trip without him. Do not hesitate to book with Earthlife, it truly was a trip of a lifetime! We will definitely be recommending Earthlife to all friends and family who wish to go on an African safari!

Great Safari experience with an experienced and extremely well prepared driver. Very complete Safari days allowing to see all major animal species and explore several landscapes and amazing lodges/camping sites ( Manyara secrets and Sound of Silence in Serengeti as our favorite ones).

We did all our planning for our 6-day safari with Earthlife via email with Caudence. She always replied within 24 hours and was very accommodating and planned a great private safari for our honeymoon. Our pickup from the airport was seamless. Aggrey was our guide and we loved getting to know him over our 6-day trip. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helped us check everything off of our list (lion cubs, rhinos, leopard, and more!). The lodgings were all very clean with great food and service. We spent time in Ndutu at Ndutu bush camp during calving season at the end of February (although missed the actual calving by a week). Ndutu felt less developed and wilder than the Serengeti which was awesome. We loved ending our trip with a stay at Marera Valley Lodge which had awesome views. Osinon camp in Serengeti had a lot of flies surrounding the camp but the tents were the nicest we stayed in. A few tips: if you pay in cash make sure your USD are minted after 2006 or they wont be accepted. Arusha is a bit touristy with not much to do, I'd recommended staying closer to the parks.

It was a pleasure to serve you, from inquiring about your safari to taking a wildlife experience, Caudence relished your generosity.

My wife and I went on safari in February 2022 after climbing Kilimanjaro. Joseph Badden was our guide. He was amazing for a number of reasons. He was very personable. Every morning it was a treat to see him and he was humorous, but by no means overbearing. Just the right amount. He was knowledgeable about the parks and animals. He also has a special talent for getting the animals to look for a photo. I highly recommend booking with Joseph if you can.

We had been searching for a Tanzanian Safari with the hopes of arriving during the migration. We found this company and began to ask in depth questions. Angel answered with details that made us comfortable with the decision. We saw a few positive posts about a guide named Joseph so we asked for him. Joseph met us at the airport, taking us to the office in Arusha for a briefing. He immediately made us feel welcome and that we had lucked out with him as our guide because if his passion for Tanzania. The game drives were filled with big cats including lions, cheetahs, serval, caracal, 4 leopards, plus thousands of migrating zebras & wildebeest with babies. A group of 20 giraffes together, baby elephants, dozens of hippos and more were absolutely amazing. The hotel, migration & permanent camp were all lovely with very helpful staff. Joseph is Maasai and truly a gem as a guide. He brings experience and skill that made a huge difference in our ability to see more animals up close and really enjoy our time with him. We highly recommend this company and especially Joseph. My husbands Nikon cameras are fabulous but Joseph made thus a very special trip!
