We booked a tour starting with Tarangire NP on day one with a night in the Kizumbacamp and Ngorogoro on day two.

The tour discussion the day before with Abraham was perfect, he explained us the different steps and picked us up in the morning from the hotel.

The Safari car was a Toyota Land Cruiser with a liftable roof for spotting the animals and taking pictures in a good condition. 6 guests can find a seat inside.

The first day in Tarangire NP was already great, we have seen Lions, Tigers, Elephants and our experienced driver Deo (he mentioned he works since 6 years as a Safari guide) was always willing to adapt the tour to our wishes.

The night in the camp was comfortable with a tent including real beds and a great dinner together with other guests from different tours.

Day 2 in Ngorogoro was absolutely amazing and we completed the view of the big 5.

All in all a great tour. In my opinion there are no points to improve.

We've contacted African Travel Tour to climb the Mount Meru in 4 days. Abraham, the manager, was super nice by email and the price was really competitive.
Once in Arusha, we've met Abraham and our guide at their office. The briefing was super clear and we had the opportunity to rent equipments with them.
During the trek we had 6 persons taking care of us (Livingstone our EXCELLENT guide, 1 cook and his assistant, and 3 porters).
The food was really good and we had way enough, we couldn't finish our plates!
It was great having so many porters, cause we just had a little backpack to carry during the climb.
We really recommend African Travel Tour to climb any summit in Tanzania, and especially Livingstone for his encouragements to make it to the top!

Dear Melchior, It's our pleasure serving you as a guest and leaving as a friend. Hiking is our passion and takes you to the summit is our happiness. The stunning picture of Sunrise on the cliff summit of Kilimanjaro taken by you, which located 50miles from Mount Meru is a good memory and an indicator that you and friends you won't spend much time without coming to Kilimanjaro Climb. We African Travel tour team we are eager and cant wait to see you again.

My boyfriend and me we had a wonderful time in Tanzania! We had 4 nights 5 days safari we saw all the animals, including the rhinos and leopards and cheetahs and lions. Everything!! Then we moved to Zanzibar and relaxed there for other 4 days.

The Safari was amazing, is tiring because you spend all the day in the Jeep looking around for any kind of animals. The alarm is early morning like 7, then breakfast and and 7;30/8;00 you leave from your lodge and start the game driving.
Is a unique experience and our guide Ben, coordinated with Abraham exceeded our expectations. Do not forget to visit ngorongoro crater, our absolutely favourite place for safari. It looks like Jurassic park! It’s stunning.
Abraham organised everything in details and even when we had some problems with the hotels we managed to solve it right away with great professionalism.
Ben is amazing he speaks a very good Italian and English and he’s very safe and diligent driver which is very important during the safari.

We didn’t expect to see so many animals and so much vegetation.
Tanzania is just amazing.
I suggest you this tour to stay on a relative quite good budget and enjoy the experience.

We slept in migombani camp ( favourite location and great food), osinon lodge inside the Serengeti national park ( we heard lions and Ienas during the night is was amazing) and then in Zanzibar we stayed at the blue reef fishing lodge and bungalow ( the food is terrific, such a good fish and so tasty recipes).
We never had problems actually the staff was very helpful everywhere. Remember that you’re in Africa so do not expect everything to be like in a city!

In zanzibar su recommend to join the dolphins tour if you’re comfortable with snorkelling a bit in the sea.
Here attached many pictures of our tour.

We want to thank Abraham for the great service and organisation. He made our dream come true! Thank you Abraham and hope to see you soon for another amazing safari!

And thank you Ben for staying with us during the safari and drive us everywhere!

This tour in simple word: professional, amazing and comfortable.

Hope to see you soon!

Mount Meru Climbing was very well organized by the agency. Our guide Livin and his team were excellent leading us throughout the mountain to reach the summit. Livin followed our pace, he was very mindful with our physical and mental conditions. The team provided us with good, varied hot meals in the mountain. The two first days is about 4 hours of hiking each. First day we stopped at 2500m and second day we stopped at 3500m. We slept in very comfortable refuges. And for the final climbing, we left at midnight to walk over 6 hours to the summit.

Safari in Taranguire Park was exceptional also, it was a private safari and we had a huge jeep for only the 2 of us. We spent 24 hours in the park and stayed at Taranguire Safari Lodge. The lodge has an amazing view on the park and river where you can keep hearing and observing wildlife. I really fell in love with the lodge. We slept in a semi-luxury tent, with a bed, toilet and bathroom, in the middle of the park and wildlife. And of course we saw elephants, giraffes, buffalos, ostriches, many kind of birds, monkeys, zebras, antelopes, etc. The park is 2 hours driving from Arusha city.

A big thank you Abraham for this very well organized trip. I highly recommend African Travel Tour agency!!

Andy and I had a wonderful 3 day/2 night safari arranged by Abraham …. It was an add on to trip to Zanzibar but Abraham organised the flights from Zanzibar to Arusha and back so there was no stress! Ayubu our driver was wonderful and made sure we saw as many animals as possible… he was very flexible about timings and stops! Given Ayubu had spent over 20 years in safari parks his knowledge and professionalism was awesome. Also he is very friendly and funny man with excellent English! Couldn’t recommend this experience enough!

I had the wonderful pleasure of doing a two day safari with African Travel Tour that included one day Ngorongoro and one day Serengeti

I know, I know, it was not enough time but boy, did I have a great experience!

From the moment Abraham picked me up from Kilimanjaro airport and said "Welcome to Tanzania, Chima." Until the moment he dropped me off at the airport and said "Goodbye, Chima"...it was back to back, premium enjoyment.

My tour guide was Ayubu who showed me all the cool sights along the way from Arusha to Ngorongoro and Serengeti

I also appreciated the delicious lunch the team packed for me during the first day of the safari

Abraham took me around Arusha and even treated me to a goodbye lunch that included the most delicious bottle of Dodoma wine.

I had a blast with this team

They are professional, friendly and fun to hang around

The safari vehicle is very comfortable with cold water in the chiller and provisions to charge your phone.

Ayubu knows every inch of the Serengeti like the back of his hands

Hire them, I promise you won't regret it!

A word of appreciation and accolade goes to African Travel Tour for their amazing honeymooners package in Zanzibar. With no regrets, a four-night-tour was perfectly arranged and very enjoyable. With the help of Mr. Akyoo whose impeccable experience on bush and beach tours gave us the best option for a perfect destination on a calm beach front hotel (Albatross Ocean View) to spend the honeymoon. Unlike what we expected, we even enjoyed more and more the food, white sand beach with corals, and blue lagoon and we are very happy for this life time experience.
As we prepare for another visit next summer, we sincerely recommend African Travel Tour. Asante sana! 😎🏝🌊🦀👍🏽

I have been lucky to find Abraham while I was looking for a local tour operator to organize a tailored tour for my family and my friends. Abraham has helped me since the beginning to organise my tour, attentively responding to all my needs and “unusual request”. He has been patient, responding to every need I had, always present and comprehensive, adapting his proposal to all my changes and needs and he captured my attention thanks to his wonderful emphatic attitude, helping me in suggesting the best options and answering to all my questions. He did a wonderful job, our experience has been unforgettable and every detail discussed and planned has been exactly as organised and imagined, if not even better. Mark, our guide/driver has been equally attentive to our needs and incredibly helpful! He was extremely fine and patient and also very kind and collaborative in the research of every type of wild beasts. He made us see the most and the best of everything. At the end of the tour he has also been helpful changing the planned program in order to accomplish our “last second” requests re-organising the route to allow us to live one more day of stunning experiences. Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire, will always be in our memories thanks to Abraham and Mark’s comprehension of our needs and expectations. Tanzania is a wonderful country full of gorgeous nature, of images, colours sounds, perfumes…and I’m sure that all these experiences will last in my memories forever. Children and people and nature from Africa are worth being “lived” at least once in one’s life.. I will never forget the lion's golden eyes, the Iena’s sounds, the bushmen way of life and the experience we had there together with the Masai welcome and their children, as well as all those people I meet on the way... such as the smile of a small girl when we gave her some food and every second I spent in that wonderful country… Now, I know what “mal d’Africa” means.. and .. all this thanks to African Travel Tour, to Mark, our guide, an infaticabile, attentive and helping driver… this experience has been so perfect thanks to their collaboration and assistance. Thanks Abrham, thanks Mark! I wish you all the best!

With my girlfriend we had 3 days of safari with them in the parks Tarangire, Lakemaniara and Ngorongoro. As soon as we arrived at Arusha airport, we were "picked up" by Ali (Abraham's collaborator) and escorted to their office where we had a brief briefing on how the safari would take place. The parks we visited were wonderful, we could see the animals in their natural state, approach them and photograph them directly from the jeep. An extraordinary experience. Everything was made even more pleasant thanks to the support of our very nice Juma guide. The days pass quickly on the jeep, but the rest in the lodges is amazing. I must say that Abraham has been able to choose, for our overnight stay, wonderful structures surrounded by nature. Everything was organized in detail, we did not have to worry about anything. Abraham and Ali are available to solve any kind of problem that may arise.
Thanks for everything.
Surely we will meet again soon.
Emanuele and Giada.
