We booked our trip just 5 days before departing in Belgium which was absolutely difficult to manage due to the time, But Lameck helped us with all the bookings and we went through a long conversations just to make sure we find something great that feat our goals, Lameck was always so friendly and quick to respond to our hundred emails with many questions. We were able to come up with a custom 14 days semi-luxury itinerary that met our needs.
We landed in Dar es Salaam in the night then picked up with our driver Waziri who is a good driver, very charming , polite and knowledgeable, he transferred us to Blue Sapphire Hotel just 15min from the Airport which was good hotel, and the next morning we began with 7days Safaris in southern Parks of Tanzania including Nyerere National Park, Mikumi, and Ruaha then we proceeded with more 7 days in Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater, the driving was a little beet challenge because it was raining in some parts but the driver was good enough to handle all the situations as well as driving from Ruaha to Manyara was a long distance, we spent a all day driving but was really awesome when we passed through different small villages, cities and mountains ranges.
We stayed between a mix of semi-luxury tented camps and lodges, including Foxes Safari camps in Southern parks and Serena lodges in northern circuit which all was our favorites and would 100% recommend them. The tents and facilities were 5 star, food was amazing and the best part was the incredible crew. They made our stay so comfortable and they are just the loveliest people.
The last day of our trip the driver transferred us from Ngorongoro Serena in the morning to Lake Manyara Airstrip for the flight ( Auric Air) to Dar es Salaam International Airport, connecting with our evening flight back home .
This was an awesome experience and unforgettable! The people at African Diurnal Safaris are as good as any we’ve encountered and very professional. We saw everything we could have wanted. We highly recommend contacting Lameck at African Diurnal Safaris for the perfect safari itinerary in Tanzania.
Thanks very much, Asante sana!!!
