    Our guide Will was super! He definitely went above and beyond. Camping in tents in the Serengeti in itself was tough, but we felt like we were in good hands.

    We had a very nice day tour with Andrew. He explained us many interesting facts about the local population and went around showing us the waterfall and coffee village. At the end we enjoyed a nice relaxing swim at the hot water springs and when we asked for a detour through Arusha, Andrew gladly showed us around there as well. A wonderfull daytrip!

    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!

    We liked it very much. Proffessional organizing. Very kind people. Our guide Mudy drove us very save over hundreds of kilometers. He speaks English, Spanisch and other languages. Very nice guy- he allways tried to practice speaking english with our daughters.
    We made big games with all animals - very close. Thank you Mudy for that! We saw the big five. Excellent. Our Chef Dula -for cooking - made great 3 meals a day! Very nice guy! Good food.
    So we recomend Mero sloppes!
    Its a local company managed very well - thanks for the good communication. Thank you all!! For everything !

    We were a group of 5 that travelled from the US to Tanzania and booked a safari trip with Assad. From prior to arrival, Assad was easy to work with and communicate our needs / specific plans for the trip. He was flexible tailoring the experience to our needs (specifically diet accommodations etc).

    Our flight landed in Kilimanjaro before heading to Arusha and Serengeti. Our initial booking was for a night in Arusha at a place that we didn’t like upon arrival - but Assad made sure we found something within minutes and was generous to cover the price difference without any additional cost to the group.

    The safari experience was great. Our guide, Lucas, was experienced, informative, fun to travel with and just overall pleasant to be around. Brought a lot of energy to an exciting trip.

    One thing we realized towards the end that Assad tries to work with a lot of locally owned businesses to empower the community and that for us was a cherry on the top for this amazing experience.

    Would highly recommend everyone to book this!

    What a great day at the Ngorongoro Crater! Gabriel was extremely professional and so helpful throughout the process- making sure to confirm my plan details beforehand and taking the time to meet with me prior to the day trip to answer any questions and provide additional info. Every detail was taken care of, all I had to do was be ready for adventure at the agreed upon pickup time. Highly recommend!!

    Great activity for a one day experience of Kilimanjaro. Guide was experienced on Kilimanjaro animals, foliage, and other important info. He made the the trip to and from our hotel informative by providing history of a variety of things along the way. It’s a fairly long ride from Arusha so plan accordingly! Thanks John for a great day!

    This tour was absolutely amazing!!! Every experience was spectacular. I was traveling solo and joined a group of other 5 people (similar age). We had so much fun during those days, accommodation was perfect, the food by Salim was amazing, the duration was just right, and the best thing was our guide Iddy. He has the best knowledge and experience and he took us to the best places. I saw elephants, lions and jiraffes closer than I ever thought I would. We saw the Big 5 in just 2 days, we saw migration crossing, and every day our views were even better than the day before. Our guide was also amazing in helping us bargain for best prices and value, and taking us to good places for shopping souvenirs without receiving "tourist prices". I definitely recommend this experience for anyone, it's one of the best trips I've had in my life!

    Mohammed is an excellent manager, and Joseph is an excellent guide. Joseph could spot animals that were insanely hard to find, at great distances, while driving at high speeds. He positioned the car perfectly to take photos.

    Mohamed was a fair negotiator, who is extremely receptive to feedback. He was 100% straight forward and honest, in an industry where honesty is often lacking. He always answers questions directly and clearly. He also expertly handled problem Safari guests. I really enjoyed working with him to arrange my Safari! Lake Manyara was a little lack luster Compared to the other parks, (due to flooding) next time I will opt for an additional day in Serengeti. Overall, the trip was amazing and we saw a lot of Animals. I will be back!

    We just got back off an amazing 3 day Safari! The 4x4 landrover was as good as new. The driver drove safe and took us to so many places. We saw in an Early gamedrive 4 of the big 5 and so much more. The next morning we even saw the rhino, who are really rare to find. Also the food was delicious! The bedding in the tent was clean and we had good nights sleep! I would recommand this company to everyone!
    Thanx Suricatasafaris for an amazing experience, You gave us so many wonderfull memories!

    We had a blast in Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Hotels were great and our tour guide Rodrick guaranteed that we had the best game drives. We could see a lot more than we expected, including rhynos, dozens of lions, cheetah, leopard and many more. He also taught us a lot about the animals and local culture.
