I started 1 January 2020 with a 'mid range' 5 day safari to Tarangirie, Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater. Just wow!
The guide/driver Jackson, with over 10 yrs experience as a guide, was sensational. He speaks excellent English, was a terrific driver (which you will see is crucial) and has an incredible eye. He can point out & identify an animal so far in the distance that most people would be lucky to even identify as more than a blob. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all the animals & birds and their habits. He is super polite, patient and always smiling.
The accommodation was well above expectations and the food was more than plentiful.
It was a trip of a lifetime and delivered beyond expectations.
The company replied very promptly to all my emails before arriving.
No hesitation in recommending them.

We are a couple from Denmark who went on a 6 days safari experience with Best Day Safari in the summer 2022. It was without a doubt the best experience in our life and unbelievable to se the African wildlife in its natural habit.

Our guide Jackson was friendly and thoughtful with a great hospitality. For us he was not just an ordinary guide you forget again when you come home, but a new friend and a well educated man who has dedicated his life to give other the great Tanzanian safari experience.

We went for the mid-range tent accommodation options with great satisfaction regarding both the food, employees and sleeping facilities.

Overall, we can with confidence recommend Best Day Safari to any who wants to get an experience they will never forget!

We organized a 6 day tour to Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire with Bestday Safaris. Our guide, Frank, was very professional and very knowledgeable about flora and fauna. Frank went out of his way to ensure we had great sightings of the game in each park, and did a great job of identifying birds, trees, and shrubs.
Accommodation throughout was excellent with good food at every stop.
We booked a group tour and must say that the whole experience with Bestday Safaris was excellent. Highly recommended.

We went on a 6-day safari through Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire, and it was absolutely incredible.
I booked the trip in January 2020 before the pandemic hit, and we were so fortunate to still be able to come to Tanzania in November 2020.
Our guide Joseph, was amazing. He is funny, extremely knowledgeable, caring, and so interesting to talk with. He knows SO MUCH about animals, plants, nature, Tanzanian geography and history, and the various tribes in and around the parks.
He has such a great eye for spotting al kinds of animals too; it always seemed like we were the first Land Cruiser on the scene of a leopard in a tree, or lions eating, and then Joseph would get on the radio and let others know what we’d found. Having him as our guide was the very best part of our trip.
The lodging was also incredible; we stayed two nights inside Serengeti National Park at the Tukaone Camp, and our host Eric was fantastic. He made sure we were always comfortable, well-fed, and had a full drink. We heard zebras outside our lodges both nights, and hyenas on the second night!
We saw all of the Big Five, and even what Joseph dubbed the Big Nine.
We can’t recommend BestDay highly enough!
Book your safari with Peter and Stephen, their customer service is the best, and they’re always quick to respond!

First I would like to thank for Bestday Safaris flexibility in our case, when needed to change safari schedule in last moment, because of flight delays. Second one, we got great safari guide/driver Joseph.
He has very good knowledge of nature and animals. He take good care of customers and listen all needs.

Because rainy season was already beginning, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara national park roads were partly closed, but still there was great oppoturnity to see lots of animals.
We started Safari 1st of march
to Tarangire and highlights was lots of elefants and 3 male lions.
And many many tse tse flies, which bite even trough clothes 😣
Second day in Ngorongoro crater.
Very cool weather in the morning but was okay during a day later.
Again many lions some of them near the road and Black rhino but very far distance.
Third day in Lake Manyara.
Not too much expetations but it was actually most exciting in our Safari.
We managed to see two tree lions in very near to the road.
Elefant chasing our jeep, lots of different monkeys, exciting birds,antiloops, zebras,kiraffes etc.
Really good experience and recommended.
Thanks, Bestday Safaris
Thanks for great guide Joseph!

I would highly recommend Best Day Safaris for your next safari. This company went above and beyond to make sure my experience was one of a lifetime.
The accommodations were excellent with friendly and professional staff. My tour guide Jackson was incredible. Super friendly and outgoing as well as incredibly knowledgeable of all the animals, plants, and surroundings. Coming from the US I was very concerned about obtaining a Covid test to return. The travel.gov site indicated that I would not be able to get my test back within the time required. Best Day Safaris not only assured me I would receive the results in time; they took the responsibility of taking me to pay for the test at the bank and then escorted me to the hospital to get the test. This was not included in the package I purchased. They did this out of complete kindness.
I loved every minute of my vacation from the breathtaking landscapes to the vast amount of animals in their natural environment. I was hesitant to visit the Massai but I can tell you that they were extremely welcoming and excited to invite us into their village. I would recommend stopping in to learn how they are living with the land.
I will be returning to the Serengeti and will be doing with Best Day Safaris has my tour company of choice!!!!!

My dad and I booked a 7-day/6-night tour directly with Peter (Bestday Safari manager). The booking process was straightforward and Peter always answered our questions promptly. He arranged for an airport pickup (and dropoff) with Freeman, a wonderful and friendly driver who gave us the lay of the land on our way to Arusha. We visited Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Arusha Natl Park. Nightly accommodations were really good and perhaps my only complaint were the dodgy internet connection (what can you expect on a safari though?). Food was consistently good and the staff was always very friendly and always ready to help.

We can HIGHLY recommend our guide Joseph. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, honest, and hardworking. His ability to spot animals during the game drives was absolutely unbelievable and his deep knowledge of the parks was instrumental in finding all kinds of special animals. For example in the Serengeti we spotted FIVE leopards (sometimes you won't even see a single one), and on our visit to Ngorongoro we saw two rare serval cats. He was also extremely attentive to our interests and adapted the trip accordingly. For example, he noticed how interested I was in the local cultures and arranged for a visit to a Maasai Mara village as well as a tour of a banana plantation in the town of Mosquito River. He also helped coordinate a day-trip to the Kilimanjaro after realizing we would have an extra day in Arusha. Having the right guide on a trip like this is essential and we cannot overstate how good Joseph was.

Overall my dad and I leave Tanzania with some wonderful memories and can 100% recommend Bestday Safaris and our guide Joseph.

I doubt that this review will be able to fully convey how amazing my experience was with both the tour experience itself and our safari Guide Joseph. I came across Best Day Safaris while comparing reviews against the tons of other companies out there and I am so happy that I did! The owner, Peter, was incredibly helpful to pick the right tour to fit my budget and time line and was essential in helping me find lodging as well as transportation from the airport to hotel, where I was picked up by his staff. A true all inclusive experience; He made it this trip as easy as could be! I traveled solo during the slow season in February, and ended up choosing the 5 day / 4 night Serengeti Safari package. I was grouped with another solo traveler which made the trip fun but the one on one time with Joseph made the experience so much more rich. Joseph had 10 years of experience being a guide and had an amazing amount of knowledge and patience answering all of our questions and made sure that we saw everything we could possibly see! Which was more than I could have dreamed of 🤩. The lodging included in Karatu and the tent camp in the Serengeti were all awesome as well with a wonderful staff, excellent service and good food! Best Day Safaris and Joseph made this trip one that I will never forget!

We did a 6-day 5-night safari with Bestday Safaris and it was an unforgettable experience that we will remember for a long time as one of those once in a lifetime events. The communication from Peter ahead of the safari was superb and prepared us very well for the trip.

Everything was well organized, from pickup at the airport to the return 6 days later. Our guides (Elias and Dula) were amazing with near-perfect English, an impressive vocabulary and an even more impressive knowledge of the animals, birds, trees and the environment. They spotted animals long before we did, explained what they were and waited patiently while we took pictures.

The camps and lodges we stayed at were good and the food there was excellent. The lunch boxes they prepared for us daily were really good quality with a wide variety of items, and more than enough for an adult.

Peter met us at the hotel to welcome us when we arrived and then came back the next morning to walk us through the daily itineraries. He met as again at the hotel when we returned from the safari to make sure that everything was fine.

We felt cared for and 100% safe the entire time we were there.

This was just an amazing experience, and we will be talking about it for a long time. We highly recommend this company, they are total professionals.
