    Our adventure with Nafika Tours exceeded all our expectations! The itinerary, accommodations, safari vehicle, and food were all excellent. However, it was the incredible staff that truly elevated our experience.

    Our safari guide, Octavian, was nothing short of spectacular. One moment he was expertly spotting a group of five male lions, and the next he was assisting a safari truck from another company that had become stuck up to its axle in the mud. Octavian is a remarkable person: knowledgeable, warm, and dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, ensuring that each day was the best it could be.

    The animal encounters were numerous and breathtaking. We had the pleasure of staying at two of the Acacia Luxury Camps, where we enjoyed the friendly and attentive service provided by the lodge staff.

    Nafika Tours' owner, Elias, should be proud of having assembled such a fantastic team and providing top-notch equipment. Thank you for an amazing trip!

    In the middle of nowhere there is a pool full of hippopotamus, and clean bathrooms, a snack and gift shack and friendly staff. Amazing experience, low prices, cold drinks

    Spectacular Moment seeing them. While we did not see actual river crossing, but it was worth the trip to see them in Ndutu this January.

    Travel with an experienced guide to view the Wildebeest migration at certain points from the river. We went with easy travel and ombeni as our guide. He took us to multiple spots along the river to see the migration. Its amazing to see the herd stampede through the river. Hungry crocs awaiting a meal. We even saw hippos, herons around.

    Our 21 day safari in Tanzania with Tanzania Horizon Safaris was a dream come true, especially our time in the legendary Serengeti! Our guide, Patrick, was amazing – knowledgeable, friendly, and always eager to make our experience unforgettable. He found the most incredible wildlife, from lions cubs and cheetahs to vast herds of wildebeest. The Serengeti's endless plains and stunning sunsets took our breath away every day. Everything was very well organized. We stayed at Lahia Lodge which felt like an oasis in the Serengeti with amazing views of the landscape. Straight from our bed we saw 2 giraffes strolling by at sunrise. We had forgotten our binoculars but the company organized them last minute which definitely contributed to our experience. Patrick’s passion and expertise made us feel like we were in great hands. Huge thanks to Tanzania Horizon Safaris for an unforgettable adventure. If you're dreaming of the perfect safari, they will make it happen!

    We just finished our second trip to see the greatest migration of wildebeest take place in Northern Serengeti with the Wild Source and our trusted friend and guide, Fadhil Magoye. This annual event is unlike any book, picture or video can capture. The sounds, the smells, the frenzy, the sheer numbers are amazing to see.

    Nothing much to do in there. Passing by from national park to the other, stop for refreshments for 10 minutes. Few shaded chairs, one shop and many colorful lizards.

    We took a SBS balloon flight on February 22, 2024. Our pilot was Mohamed and the experience was exhilarating! A fantastic opportunity to see the vastness of the beautiful Serengeti. The SBS Staff was wonderful, efficient and very professional. Our driver, Adam was outstanding and despite the early pick-up and drive to our sunrise flight, we were always in safe and competent hands. Mohamed is a fantastic pilot and SBS representative. He guided us during the flight, spotted animals and I felt very safe. The catered breakfast afterwards was a delight! Such charming details to make this experience a true memory. I only wish I had brought more cash for tips.

    We had the absolute best trip with Tanzania Safari Supremacy. Elvice is the absolute best with the planning. I am not sure if he ever sleeps as I heard from him at all hours of the day and night during the planning stages. I found them on Tripadvisor and took a chance with them based on the positive reviews. I am not even sure all the reviews do them justice. We did the safari in Kenya, Tanzania, and finished in Zanzibar and I would highly recommend this trip. Our guides Kelvin (Kenya) and Gabriel (Tanzania) were both wonderful. While we were there ahead of the rainy season, we actually got a significant amount of rain and the roads were in very rough shape. Both of them showed exceptional driving skills to be able to keep us moving from place to place. We stayed at wonderful safari camps. In fact, in Masai Maara, we went to a newer camp and were the only guests at the time. This private experience was 5 stars!

    When we were leaving Tanzania, Elvice came and met us at the airport to say good bye. It was such a lovely gesture. Given the rough roads, we actually missed getting to the Serengeti before it closed so needed to stay in an alternative hotel. Thankfully we did have travel insurance and Elvice was incredibly helpful in providing us with the information for the insurance company to approve the claim. The situation was completely out of the guide's hands, and in fact, without his amazing navigation and driving skills, we might not have made it to the border with Tanzania at all.

    We are so appreciative of this once in a lifetime trip!

    Such an amazing add on to our safari experience.

    Thank you Carlos for a great flight, and a great historical recounting of the first balloon created!

    We would definitely recommend to anyone.
