I found a recommendation Sima safari on a Facebook post. Alon was very patient and organised a trip exactly like we asked for with a lot of changes along the way,
He was always available and helpful with everything- information, payments, COVID test and much more.
We did 7 days of safari in Tanzania, followed by 3 days in Zanzibar the trip was a family trip of 5 adults.
Our driver for the safari trip was Elias- very recommended!! He became part of the family since day 1, did everything he could for us to see to most of each reservation, Elias is a very experienced guide and we could tell he knows where and how to look each animal.
The hotel in Zanzibar was Riu, we originally booked through their website but Alon found a better deal for us through his agency.

We got from Sima safari a trip that went beyond our expectations, usually I organise our trips by myself but reaching to Alon was the right choice this time.
Very recommended!!

We had the pleasure of visiting Tanzania for 12 days with Sima Safari. Sima's tour plan was unique, visiting tribes and areas that other tours miss. Sima was the only team that had hot silver plate lunch served and not standard carton lunch boxes. Dispite the obvious challenges of executing the trip during the frequent changes of global covid restrictions, they were very accommodating, flexible, courteous and honest.

Our on ground tour guide Gotfri was outstanding. Professional, experienced, pleasant, interesting, committed and we felt very privileged to have gotten the opportunity to know such an honorable person, who is decent, considerate of others, trusted and gained our out most respect as a professional and human being.

He was very pleasant and accommodating. Always ready to make an extra effort or drive an extra mile to allow us to maximize our experience. He knows every passage and path in the different national parks. An expert in pointing out the different animals, which allowed us not to miss any and capture rare photo opportunities. Experienced driver on the non paived roads making the trip both comfortable and safe. Has 1st hand knowledge on the tribes calture and way of life. Gotfri has great communication skills with adults, children, colleagues, officials and service providers. He really made our trip unforgetable and we highly recommend him as the number 1 guide for Tanzania to our friends.
We wholeheartedly recommend Sima and Gotfri to anyone who wishes to have a great experience in Tanzania.

My heart is filled with joy and excitement like fireworks scattered in the air thanks to Sima Safari :). Their travel agent; Batia has organized a two week detailed itinerary for our family (parents with four spoiled bratz) and catered to every single one of our needs and wants.
We have started our journey in Arusha to 3 Safari parks and ended the trip...sadly :( in Zanzibar.

We highly recommend this professional, knowledgeable and caring organization and hope you experience the journey to its fullest just lke We have.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sima Safari
Sincerely,
Boudjenah 👪

We booked a 3 day safari with Sima back in 2019 and after many cancellations we finally made it. Thank you Sima for looking after us.
This was our first safari so we chose Sima because the offered a full 3 day Safari, two days driving and one day river safari.
Michael was our driver and guide. He was fantastic, his knowledge and ability to spot hidden animals while driving at 30 mph was amazing.
Day one was short because the plane was delayed by almost two hrs. The flight itself was only 30 min from Zanzibar.
The landing on the grass strip was fun, the wife thought we were going to crash into the trees!
5 min.after landing your in your jeep’s and on your way.
We were blown away with the beauty of the place.
The amount of animals we saw on land, in the water and in the sky was breathtaking and far too many to list here.
Michael managed to find us elephants on day one, but not through lack of trying couldn’t find us lions.

Day two.
Michael was waiting for us at our lodge at 07:00hrs and off went for a full 10hr of safari.
We traveled a lot further today towards the mountains.
Did we find some lions? Yes we did, we saw three different groups of lions, a couple of young male elephants a small family of hyenas and many many more animals.
Thank you Michael for answering all our questions, stopping when ever we saw anything that looked like an animal or bird and for looking after us.

Day three (river safari).
We did not think anything could top the last two days, boy,was we wrong.
If you like birds then this is the day for you.
The first bird I saw was the Little Kingfisher wow!
You get a lot closer to crocodiles than you feel comfortable with!!
The highlight of the day was a herd of elephants crossing the river, magical.

We are two couples ( age more than 60 years old). Yesterday we finished 12 days trip with Simasafari. Alon and his crew made this trip the best trip we could dream of. We had 7 days Safari with Emanuel who is the best guide, excellent driver who found for us every animal we could wish to see. Of course we saw all the big 5 more than once and many more animals. Emanuel was very sensitive to all our special needs and made the Sfari experiences an unforgettable one. We spent 3.5 days in Zanzibar and had there really good time, including interesting day trips that Hadas, the representative of Simasafari there had organized. We highly recommend Simasafari for a great safari trip in Tanzania and a beutiful Zanzibar tour.

We have decided to choose Sima Safari limited based on many recomendations we read in social media from other travelers. From the first contact to them we felt so welcome, and the support, explanations about what to choose, and planning my trip with my dougther,budgting it to my capacity was top proffesional.
We have chosen to start in Selous national park, since Alon, Sima Safari director recomeded to me, since birding is my hoby.

We travel to Selous from Dar es Salaam with Sima safari tour guide. Did sunset boat safari,
Game drive in the selous between the lakes and the river.
We were almost anywhere searching for special atractions and in many wow places that Sima safari tour guide found for us we were totaly alone.

He explain us that that is what Sima Safari is, to make us the travelers most satesfid, and not to give up any chance to see more and more.

I am highly recomend to travel with Sima Safari, and even more becaue of the way they dealed with my injury.
At the Selous i had a seriuos injury at the lodge, and after less then 24hours i was out of the Aga Khan hospital in Dar es salaam after surgery fixed to the extend that i can fly tomorrow back home.

Unfotunatly my vacation ended earlier because of my injury
But,,Sima Safari immidietly approve refund or credit for us to come back and finelize our safari and our Zanzibar vacation.
Arrange for us early flight back home and upgraded to business class due to my injury

Tour operator is test while things goes wrong.
Sima Safari past this test with me big time.

We booked a 1 day Safari with Sima Safari Tour and everything was perfectly organized with the flights from and back to Zanzibar. Our driver Mikel was super and we were very lucky to see all the animales except the Lions!! It was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anybody as we saw many animals in only one day.
Thank you again for organizing such a lovely trip!!

My son and I recently completed an unusual 9 days' Safari Tour in Tanzania with Sima Safari. We enjoyed it very much and would like to express our great appreciation to the wonderful people who took care in every aspect to make our Safari successful: Alon Hovev (Sima Safari’s director) and Emmanuel (our guide & driver).

The safari was perfectly planned, with thoughtfulness to every small detail. The itinerary was very intensive, spectacular, and well prepared, the lodges were carefully selected, and the meals were tasty. But above all we were very happy with our private guide.

Emmanuel, our guide, was very efficient and friendly, and his pleasantness and patience were an inspiration. His wide and rich knowledge, his sharp eyes, which caught every animal near or far which moved or stood still, his attention to the environment and our safari car’s cleanliness was exceptional, his safe and professional driving on rough, challenging dirt roads was remarkable, and his ceaseless care for us and our welfare were unbelievable.

Many thanks to Alon Hovev, who fulfilled our beautiful dream, and made it come true due to his vision, experience, and amazing energy.
The safari was diversified, enriching, exciting and unforgettable.

Remember the name “Sima Safari” - We highly recommend.

Thank you to Sima Safari & all the staff involved in making our trip so special.

We did the last minute 3 days to Tarangire NP and Ngorongo crater from Zanzibar.

We used WhatsApp to communicate with the company before booking, the staff on the other side were great, answering all of our questions. Similar to the booking below, we sent a deposit online and then had to pay cash when in Zanzibar as it was a last minute booking.Everything was handled professionally.

Our safari guide Godfrey was amazing. From the moment we got into the car until our drop off at our last hotel, he was giving us information about the local area, local culture and the animals. We managed to see 4 out of the big 5 and had close encounters with lion cubs and elephants, something we will never forget.

Both accommodations we stayed in were comfortable and provided enjoyable food. Flight and transfers were easy and accommodating.

We will be recommending you to all of our friends and family who have been very jealous of our trip. We hope to be back next year to see the Serengti 😇

Excellent experience with SIMA SAFARI. The company always was responding to my e-mails and questions. The itinerary was faithfully followed with the exceptional experience of the guide and driver Emanuel (an excellent professional and very knowledgeable). He did everything to see the Big 5 and/or other animals in the tour locations. Wi-fi services in the car, filtered/bottled water, and all accommodations up to standard! The transfer services were also on time! I highly recommend the company and especially the guide and driver Emanuel! Thank you so much for the wonderful time!
