10 of us did a 9-day Safari (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Northern and Central Serengeti) with Shah Tours and enjoyed ourselves very much. Roheel Shah advised us in putting the itinerary together, and had us covered from picking us up at the Kilimanjaro airport to dropping us off there again at the end. We started planning almost a year in advance and he was very responsive, knowledgeable and flexible in accommodating our needs/wishes. We had four drivers (with a hand-off half-way) and I want to mention Sahidi and Kanti as particularly knowledgeable, friendly and with an excellent command of spoken English. The lodges we stayed at ranged from gorgeous to adequate. We had two short flights, where thankfully given the group size, we could charter the whole plane, giving us additional flexibility and almost no wait time at the airstrips. All the parks had their own charm. If I could do it all again, the only thing I'd change, would be to leave out Lake Manyara completely.

Hi Horatio M, Thank you for your amazing review and kind words. It was a pleasure having you and the family with us on safari and meeting some of you that did come on to Moshi. I am so happy after planning for long that you managed to do the safari and saw some migration and loads more wildlife. I will definitely pass your compliments to the guides especially Saidi and Kanti and appreciate Lake Manyara could have been skipped as it's not that great this year and much smaller than the other large parks visited. I really appreciate you all coming and travelling with us and hope we do see you again one day in the future.

We enjoyed a really nice and remote climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in November 2020. Thanks to our guides George and Calvin, our cook Pantaleo, the porters Joseph, Emmanuel and all the others we had a lovely experience.
The tent was brandnew (Hillenberg from Sweden), spacious, and we were spoiled more than we expected on a mountain tour. Some items could have been left out, but are probably used in a bigger group (glas bottles of ketchup). THe heavy metal pan to serve sizzling meat at 4.000m altitude was special, but made us feel bad having someone carry that all the way for us.
The crew/staff was always friendly and helpful, and we had a really great time - and can only recommend to do the tours right now. Almost no people, very remote routes and campsites, and all the people down there need tourists to make their living. So take the chance and experience Tanzania as it was 40 years ago...

Shah tours faultlessly organised a superb experience on the 8 day Lemosho route. Contact with the office through Roheel Shah was efficient and prompt and the quality of information was excellent. The team on the mountain was excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable trip made possible by Shah Tours - I would not hesitate to recommend them.

We booked a highly customized trip in Tanzania for 2 weeks which included a short trip to Kilimanjaro, Serengeti and Ngorongoro safari followed by a beach resort at Zanzibar island.

Roheel recommended and provided guidance thru out the planning process. From our arrival to our departure he was available for any of our questions/clarifications. The guides, Haji and Mallick, were very knowledgeable and friendly and went above and beyond so that we could see the migration and the big 5.
The hotels booked were excellent, amazing locale - best service and catered to our food requests without blinking an eye.

I would highly recommend them for any tour in Tanzania.

We did 8 Days Lemosho Route and Tarangire National park..and we have not words to express our gratitude with Shah Tours, it has been a life experience.

First, Nadia Palermo who helped us to arrange the trip but not only that she took care of us in a complete way, she even took me to a beauty parlour to have my hair done; let me tell you, this kind of things not a travel agency is doing and in case it's happening you might pay extra.

Our guides Muza and Hilary, the 10 porters, chef and Priscus were outstanding, even we could say that the amount you pay for a trip like this is not enough for all the work they are doing, honestly, carry bags, camping stuff, cooking, setting up the tents...while we are walking, eating, sleeping..repeat, may be you would say: we are paying for that but the kindness, caring, motivation, experience, sense of responsibility, hospitality, attention among so many others can not be bought.

We will recommend to do your trip in Tanzania with Shah-Tours

We really enjoyed our safari to serengeti and ngorongoro crater. It was wonderful trip and well organised by Shah Tours.
Shah tour is highly professional, experienced and treat their customers in a warm, friendly manner. I would highly recommend booking with Shah Tours, especially a trip with Mohamedi as a guide/driver, who has a wealth of knowledge and made our trip amazing! Asante Mohamedi, na Asante Sana Shah Tours!

Booking with Shah Tours was a breeze. Easy communication via email, the team understood what exactly we wanted out of the safari & were very accommodating to all our requests. Simple payment methods while booking with them! The driver/ tour guide was highly proficient & experienced. All seven days with him were enjoyable. All bookings were made glitch free. The accommodation recommended by the team was exceptionally comfortable & beautiful after a long day on safari. Both Shah Tours & the hotels were cooperative with our dietary requirements. I would highly recommend booking with Shah Tours!

I feel the need to thank your company and especially Godlisten Kisanga. It was only because of his abilities that we could enjoy the most exciting holiday.

Very friendly welcome at the airport, nice briefing, presentation of the car, very well appearance, in the lodges and tent camps he organised everything (also packed lunches and registration). We felt very well looked after at all times.

Striking was the always very clean car, very good driving style, safe driving, considerate and friendly interaction with colleagues.

Godlisten was always in harmony with nature and the animals, which he faced very considerately and respectfully. His knowledge of the life of all animals and nature was impressive.

He always endeavoured for our well-being, even during our illness for 2 days.

I have to say again that I wish every guest to have godlisten as a guide. We saw everything you could see. Thanks to everyone who organised in the background. We will come back.

We have been on our first safari in August 2021, visited the national parks Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and 4 days Serengeti. Everything was perfectly organised, the lodges were very beautiful and everyone we meet was very friedly and wellcoming, especially our guide Mtoo. He has communicated with other guides to enable us the best views of the fascinating wild life, my favorites being the lion cubs, and baby girraffs! He is a very good driver and has an excellent intuition where to wait for action, so we saw a lion hunting, leopards playing and 1000s of gnus crossing the river! Thank you for an awesome safari!

Hi CB! Thank you so much for the kind words and review on our Trip Advisor page. I am so happy that your safari with Mtoo went well and that you did manage to see the famous Gnu / Wildebeest migration in the north and hope you do come back one day for another safari! Regards, Roheel Shah

Thanks to Shah Tours we got our dream of climbing Kilimanjaro fulfilled. My boyfriend and I took the Machame route, and our guides were Mathayo and Lameck. Everyday we were met with extreme professionalism of the entire crew. Thanks to Mathayo, Lameck and the porters we got to the summit. I am sure I would not have made it without them. It was with their encouragement that we had the energy to get to Uhuru peak. Our thanks go to everyone involved. If you are looking for a company with a good spirit and safe approach to Summit Kilimanjaro Shah Tours is the company you should pick.
