Owner description: In close proximity of Arusha lies Arusha National Park. Its compact size and mix of mountains, lakes, forest and savanna filled with wildlife makes for the perfect day trip. We offer a combination of game-viewing by car, on foot and canoe, transport in comfortable 4x4 vehicles and including lunch overlooking the flamingo, hippo and crocodile filled lakes...

With our 7-year-old son, this was a perfect start to a long safari trip, and thanks to Chris & Ingrid for suggesting these two safari experiences. Walking close to the buffalo and other animals, including a perching eagle, we felt in-touch, and our son could stop and play in a waterfall -- which makes a good place for lunch. It is rare to be able to move about freely like this in reserves. Canoeing on Momella Lake is another spectacular form of freedom, especially in the later afternoon, with Mt. Meru on one side and Kilimanjaro on the other, hippos in the water, birds coming to roost and animals coming to drink. We enjoyed the many birds and snakes, including a python curled up in a thorn tree on the bank. (August 2011)

We had an amazing time in Tanzania. Ingrid organised the perfect experience for our first visit to this beautiful country. From the moment we were picked up from the airport by Edwin, who looked after us the entire time on our safari, to when we left Zanzibar, we were looked after so well. I was so impressed by Ingrid from the start of my enquiries by her prompt responses. Nothing was too hard and she organised everything, from the beautiful accommodation to the amazing wild life experiences. Edwin our driver was so lovely and it was nice getting to know him during our time together.
All the lodges we stayed in were fantastic. Endoro Lodge, Serengeti Sopa Lodge and Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge in Tanzania. Baraza and Serena Lodge in Zanzibar. Seeing all the animals in the vastness of the Serengeti was one of the best experiences I have had. We were so fortunate as to see the wilderbeast and zebras migrating. Everyone needs to experience this country. Another stand out experience was staying in the Isoitok Camp in Manyara. A must do experience. Your tent looks out over the Rift Valley. Just beautiful. Tents luxurious and food 5 star. Chris has such great local knowledge and both him and Ingrid support the local Masai community which is just wonderful.
Zanzibar was great too. We went on a day tour called the Princess Salme Spice Tour. Highly recommend this. Ingrid organised this for us.
This is a wonderful company to rely on who I could not fault. Highly recommend using them. What are you waiting for. Book now.

Ingrid and Chris are awesome. Professional, locally based, returning to the community, responsive and fairly priced. I would highly recommend them as well as my guide Simon- who rocked. Use these guys!

My husband and I arranged for a three day safari with Bush to Beach in January 2013, during which we covered the following three parks (one for each day): Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. Ingrid at Bush to Beach surpassed our expectations in helping us customize our itinerary and accommodations. Her responses to our email queries were prompt and reliable, providing useful recommendations that went a long way in making our safari experience most enjoyable. We were received at the airport by Simon (our companion and guide for the duration of the safari adventure) and we loved him from the minute we exchanged hellos. Overall, we felt that Bush to Beach provided us a great safari package which proved to be worth every penny spent. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Bush to Beach to our friends and family!

I booked a week-long safari and Zanzibar trip with my 72-year-old father and 35-year-old sister last year, neither of whom had ever been to Africa before. I wanted an experience that would give them a real 'feel' of Africa but also provide some creature comforts so that we could all have a relaxing vacation. Bush2Beach hit that balance perfectly and I really could not have been happier with our trip. Chris worked patiently with me through 11 (!) versions of our itinerary until we had all the bases covered, including Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Zanzibar, and Cumbe island. We grealy appreciated the overnight stay near the Masai village, which I was originally afraid would be cheesy and fake but instead ended up being educational, heartfelt, and memorable. Our driver Simon was endlessly kind and knoweldgeable, in addition to being respectful of the fragile ecosystems we encountered (which sadly is not true with all safari companies).
Thank you Chris, Ingrid, and Simon! I hope we can return someday soon with even more family members!
