We are a couple in our 30s, very lucky to have travelled quite a bit already including in jungle and desert areas. We booked a 5 days safari with Serengeti Wakanda in July 2022.
We booked online after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we received all important information and answers to our many questions from Batho - excellent communication! The booking was secured after paying a 10% deposit via bank transfer, very conveniently. The remainder of the fee was payed the day before the safari started, via bank transfer again.
We were told that we would be taking part in a group tour with a maximum of 8 other tourists, and in the end we were only 4 travellers in the car which was perfect! Our car was comfortable, everybody has a window seat, and the pop-up roof allows a 360 deg. view which is fantastic for observing the animals and taking pictures.
Our guide and driver Derick was very nice, calm, patient and kind. He could answer all our questions. Derick did all he could whithin the parks rules to get us nice viewing points of the animals, he was fantastic at finding them, and took on very long game drives to make sure we could make the best out of our safari. Thank you Derick for these long days driving us around!
During the safari, food was prepared freshly everyday by the amazing cook Suleiman. The food was very good, diverse, with freshly baked bread for all meals! In addition, Suleiman has been the kindest companion during our safari, always having kind words for us, making sure we liked the food, and sharing his knowledge of the country as well. Thank you Sulei, you are a wonderful person!
Two nights were spent camping in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, right inside the national parks. Although this can sound a bit scary, these were some of the best nights I have spent camping. The camping sites were fairly large (perhaps about 30-40 tents), which brings a feeling of safety with the people around, without feeling overcrowded.
Finally, a few words about the parks. We visited in 5 days the Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara national parks. All the parks have a very different and specific landscape and fauna, so 5 days seemed to us like a good time to take it all in. We got to see so many animals up close, including large mammals and birds. The amount of life around the parks is mind blowing, with herds of elephants, prides of lions and large groups of wildebeest everywhere.
This truly was the experience of a lifetime!
I absolutely recommend to book a safari with Serengeti Wakanda, the value was incredible and everything was smooth and beyond expectations!
