We were 2 couples and planned a 6 days Safari in Gorongoro and Serengeti (North included). The experience was beyond expectations, our guide TOM was truly the best, he had a wide and experience knowledge of the area and the animals behaviors, therefore we managed not just to spot them, but to truly experience parts of their life’s. We assisted to wild-beast crossings, crocodiles catching Zebras, lionesses hunting, mating of various species and gazelles newborns. This was truly an added value and made our experience wonderful. 5 out of 5!

What a wonderful 6 day safari to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti (including the Mara River in Northern Serengeti). There were some great contrasts between the different parks and continuous animal viewing throughout the trip. Nembris provided excellent support and recommendations to organise a safari exactly how we wanted it. The accommodation was stunning and the route was perfect. A special thanks to our driver/guide/expert photographer, Gilbert, who ensured we were ALWAYS in the best position. The Wildebeest crossing of the Mara river and our tented camp in Northern Serengeti were the stand out highlights of the trip.

Before talking about African Scenic Safaris I would like to write something on the driver. Jackson Joseph is the best safari's driver you can find worldwide. He is a specialist. He find always the best habitat to discover animals. Finding the big5 was a simple thing for him. We also saw 3 wildbeast crossing in Masai Mara. He reflects the hakuna matata way of living : he is always happy and creates the perfect atmosphere during the game. He has always respected the daily program. Asante sana Jackson. I hope to have another adventure with you. MAMMA MIA JACKSON! MUY BELLISSIMO! Let's talk about African Scenic safaris. Behind the best driver I think there must be the best team ever. African organised for us 5 wonderful days: 2 days in serengeti, 2 days in Masai Mara and 1 day in ngorongoro. The daily plan was perfect and the camps, African choose for us, were amazing. Thank you so much African Scenics. I wish you all the best for the future.

Wow! What an incredible experience!!! Going on a safari was a bucket list item for me, and my expectations were exceeded! Jackson, our guide, was so nice and accommodating, and really focused on making sure we saw all the animals in their natural habitat! We truly felt like we were inside of a National Geographic documentary! Simbo, the owner, was also extremely nice, accommodating, and has a great sense of humor! I would absolutely use African Scenic Safaris again!!

After contacting quite a lot of operators, I went ahead exchanging with 2 and finally choose African Scenic Safari. The starting date suited me best and the price was reasonable compared to other big companies frequently mentioned on the TA Tanzania forums. They also accepted a last minute booking since I made the deposit 10 days before the trek. While their company name mentions safaris, they also specialize in Kilimanjaro treks, with a team of recurrent guides and porters whom mostly work for them. They are members of KPAP and one leader of the association was indeed porters in our group. They also promote equal employment opportunity and Miss Basilisa was a woman porter in our group. It's a terribly tough job for anyone but Basilisa was smiling and laughing for the 7 days of the Machame route. Our guide was Godwin, and Nestor was the assistant guide. They were knowledgeable about the nature and the mountain around us through the whole trek even with my challenging questions. What I valued a lot is that they were attentive every second to make things easy for us, anticipating our needs so to make the climb as easy as possible. Overall, I found the trek a bit less tough than I had imagined but they largely contributed to that. Because beyond the essentials (such as safety, equipment, food and drinks), it's also the little details in the daily life that help to make it to the top : helping to close my bigger bag when it's morning freezing cold/carrying part of my water on the summit night/ offering to take my walking sticks at a point they are bothering me and giving them back at another point when I did not realized I shall be using them again/suggesting proactively to adapt the schedules noticing we were slow at getting ready to start the day etc etc Dozens of little examples that are not insignificant at high altitude. Mousa was our summit porter and with the same state of mind. Godwin was also great conservationist and meals or tea time cool moments to share. Overall an amazing experience on every aspects.
