If you thinking if it worth going to safari...stop thinking, just go. Choose tour operator very carefully, stay in the tent and you will never regret it. Spend no less then 4-5 days in Serengeti to really see it. Most of the 1-2 days operators will take you to central Serengeti, which would have 20 cars queuing to see one animal, if you go for more days you would really enjoy it. Falling a sleep to sounds of hyenas and lions and awaking to sounds of birds. This is probably the last true wilderness left on earth. Every part of park so different in terms of landscape, you will enjoy it, it's in my heart

This is one must visit national park.
It is well preserved with vast bushes, Savannah and swamps make the visit worthwhile. And with the right driver and guide, then you are sure of seeing all the animals especially the big five that lucky us had the privilege of seeing.
There's also a stop over in the middle of the park and someone can stretch their legs, have a bite and get a short educational insight into the Serengeti.
A good idea if you can sleep in one of the many camps and lodges in the park as this will give you more time to do the park visit especially the morning hours when most animas are stepping out for food and water. Thanks to our organisers Priva Safaris and adventures.

Serengeti is one of the best plains you should never miss,having great time enjoying the migrations of wildebeest and zebras and the other wild animals. World safari land tours does its best to make sure you enhance the beauty of Tanzania ,Highly Recommend camping during the migrations towards Mara river.

A group of friends and I did the 7 day lemosho route with Marakuo tours and safaris on Nov and what an memorable experience we all had and we enjoyed at a max point. I did a lot of research before the trip on what company to book with and Marakuo tours reviews had nothing but good things to say about this tour operator.

After a good research and find marakuo tours i made a contact to the owner Gaby inorder to get all neccessary info about the route and price quotation. Gaby provide to us a reasonable price that everyone on our group fells okey. the owner was very attentive on reply my emails on time and provide a lot of info to me. he is the one who recommend to us on a route to take. also during arrival he took us early and bring us to the hotel in a beautiful city Arusha.

Since we had a free day before our climb, Marakuo tours & safaris had arranged a culture tour in Arusha for the next morning at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed it very much and it was another memorable adventure.
The night before the start of the climb, our principal guide met us at the lodge, ensured that all our gear was adequate, and provided the few rental items mittens, gaiters, that we had told that we would need.
The guide and assistant guide offered just the right combination of urging and restraint to ensure that had a successful summit. They frequently examined and questioned us to ensure that we were in good condition and that we weren't hiding any ill effects of the altitude. The supporting team was excellent.
We will never forget the good spirit and politeness of the marakuo team had on us from the start up to the end of our days in Tanzania

When it came to summit night, some group members experienced mild a moderate symptoms of altitude sickness but the experience and expertise of our guides meant that they were confident we could do it, and all four of us reached the Uhuru Peak together. Overall it was a fantastic experience made possible by Marakuo Tours & Safaris, if you are planning to climb to the roof of Africa then choose this guys they will make sure you summited well and enjoy to be on Top of Africa.

Safari, 3 days in Tarangire and serengeti.

After complete a 7 days trekking we did also 3 days safari with the same guys Marakuo Tours.. This was another great experience we had. our 3 days safari went well due to our guide who was professional and knowledgable on safari. The man took us in a moderate speed up to the parks were we went Tarangire and serengeti. we saw a lot of animals in a parks like lion, elephant, zebra, rhino and others animals.. the roads were just fine for us to reach there while not much tired.

Our 11 days in Tanzania was very great and interested due to many things we just saw, but all in all the special thanks should go to Marakuo Tours and safaris for their kindness and love shown to us. we will be first ambassador for them and highly recommend them to our friends.
Thanks very much..
