We just completed 5 days of safari with our guide Jimmy. We had a fantastic time and saw a huge amount of animals. Our guide made sure the journey was tailored to our wishes and provided all the insights we wanted into animals, nature and culture in Tanzania. Perfect!

We booked a 6 day private safari for us and our 12 year old granddaughter. Our guide, Gerald, was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the region: the culture, the animals, the birds and the plants.
We had the flexibility to choose our preferred type of accommodation and duration and direction of the tour.
We would recommend this company to anyone traveling in Tanzania.

The trip to Tanzania safari was an exciting adventure. We are there for totally 12 days and we visit the Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti National Park. We plan this trip through Easy Travel, these 12 days are fun, exciting and full of surprise.
Our guide Freddy was highly professional and dependable with superb and safe driving skills. Freddy has this super power to spot the wild animals from far. When I am saying that is not just he can spot the lions or elephants from far but also the three times he spot the rhinos when other safari car just drive by without notice the rhinos in the distance. He was able to get us to see four wildebeest crossing in just 1 ½ days! One time we were the only jeep at the crossing, the other guides missed it!
Our Easy Travel contact Norah did a fantastic job customizing our itinerary. She was ready to answer any question and make any accommodation she could to ensure our trip was the best possible.
I miss Tanzania already! Would love to go back and would want Norah and Freddy to organize and guide me when I do.

And Tanzania misses you, too! We appreciate your choosing us for your safari trip, glad that we could meet your expectations. Four wildebeest crossings is a good total, well done to Freddy.

We are proud of our driver-guides, thank you for your feedback.

I normally don't write reviews, but in this case I really have to. We recently did a 7-day safari in Northern Tanzania organized by Easy Travel, and it was just an outststanding experience all around. I had looked at various travel agencies before the trip, but the responsiveness and quality of preparation by Easy Travel (and in particular Voice Gerson, who dealt with us) really made the difference. And the exeuction of the actual trip when we got there was simply flawless. Our driver/guide Richard was the best you can imagine for such an adventure. Highly professional, reliable, with deep experience. I can recommend Easy Travel and their team to anyone who considers doing this kind of trip.

We had the most amazing experience hiking to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. It was challenging and so rewarding, only made possible by Frank’s team. Frank and Diglan were incredible guides, Damien cooked us amazing 3 course meals on the side of a mountain (we couldn’t believe the quality), and 7 porters - Justin, Prosper, Abraham, Abdul, Festo, Benson and Ezery - carried a ridiculous amount of gear, food and water up for us. We did the Lemosho 8 day route which I can highly recommend for the 4 different vegetation zones and good opportunity for acclimatisation.

100% recommend climbing Kilimanjaro with Easy Travel, especially with Frank’s team. :)

Can I put 10 stars on this review?! Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids, aged 11, 13, 15) unanimously voted this our best trip EVER! We spent 13 days on safari and could have easily spent 31 :). Every single aspect of this company was STELLAR. We would absolutely use them again and have recommended them to as many people as possible.

From the VERY first interaction with Easy Travel via email, Lizbeth helped make this company stand out above the others I had contacted. She was EXTREMELY patient, answering all questions with detailed answers in an impressively timely manner (which was really important to us as we were booking at the last minute...). We were fortunate enough to meet Lizbeth in person and she was just as I imagined her- really sweet and friendly. She even called us several times to make sure things were going well on safari. :)

So... speaking of safari, we had 13 gorgeous days, well balanced between safari and cultural experiences. We visited Ilkidinga, near Arusha, thenTarangire, Lake Manyara, Mto wa Mbu, Lake Natron, North Serengeti to see the migration, central Serengeti, Oldupai gorge and then the gorgeous Ngorongoro crater. We had an innumerable number of amazing sightings, with some of the highlights being wild dogs, cheetahs, leopards, a pride of lions making a kill, and a rhino in Ngorongoro. We were fortunate to see a varied landscape over this number of days and locations.

Our guide, of course, is who made the experience truly incredible. Ombeni was perfect for our family- patient, organized, enthusiastic, funny, warm and eagle-eyed! He taught the kids at least 100 words of Swahili as well as several songs, in such a short time! He is truly an excellent, cautious driver and we felt 100% safe in his hands.

The safari vehicle was perfect- excellent condition (the vehicles are completely inspected after every trip), clean and comfortable. Extra binoculars were provided and all the water one could wish for!
The accommodations were simply amazing- to think we could have such luxury, comfort and delicious food in the middle of a park is mind-boggling (as was the fact we had Wi-Fi everywhere!). The people who work in the camps all go out of their way to help you in any way possible. Our favorite camps by far, however, were the Tortillis camps, whose singing staff we will never forget!

A word about the financial aspect- I was a little nervous going to our bank and transferring a small fortune to an unknown (to me) bank in Africa! Needless to say, that went smoothly and without a hitch. Furthermore, we had paid Easy travel for an internal flight that we ended up getting ourselves with another company. By the end of the trip, I had actually completely forgotten about this, but Easy travel had not, and refunded us completely.

Lastly, a comment about the owner, Musaddiq. He came out to personally meet us both before and after the trip, including giving us a thorough overview of the trip before we left. His enthusiasm and love for his company and country are immediately obvious and infectious. His attention to detail and striving for perfection is what has made this such an amazing company. What we were most impressed with, however, is how much of the company's profit he turns back to Tanzania (investing in education, conservation, environmental cleanup, etc), and especially how much he has empowered women, who make up about half of Easy Travel's workforce. Bravo!! :)

And I would be remiss if I did not give a massive thank you to everyone at Tripadvisor who helped ME with this trip planning!

Thank you - your comments are very kind, we appreciate you choosing us and we welcome your review. Lizbeth is one of our valued female employees and we are proud that half our workforce are ladies. They do a great job for us, so thank you for commenting on Lizbeth's efforts.

We are also proud of our workshop, where every vehicle gets a full check-up after each safari - necessary, as the roads are unforgiving here!

We try to give back to Tanzania, as much as possible, as we recognise that the landscape and the wildlife are what provide us and our 250 employees with a living. We all really love what we do, we love Tanzania.

Hope to see you again,

Kind regards

My first time with Simba Safaris. I had booked my tour through Safari Hub who finally put me through Simba Safaris.

The driver cum guide - Mathew was an excellent guy. He knew the way around and drove really well. Not sure if there is an improvement needed around his wildlife knowledge.. i guess yes. But his overall attitude and behaviour kind of made up for any lack of knowledge that he had on wildlfe.

Vehicle was good and in good condition. Interios were maintained well.

Choice of lodges/tents were really nice. enjoyed every place and food in all locations.

Simba represetative - Mark was there at Arusha to see us off on the first day of the safari and was available to take feedback on the last day was aswell. Which was a good gestrure and felt that there are people available to take care of us incase of any emergency.

The only negative about the whole trip was the delay in pick up from my arusha hotel on the first day... i still dont have an explanation to it .but overall i had a good trip

We picked Easy travel based on Tripadvisor reviews and it was a fantastic choice for us. We picked a Comfort Plus package that was designed with a 6 day itinerary that was customized for us based on our schedule and needs. Norah, the sales person, worked diligently with us and built us a great itinerary. The communication was great and very helpful. One little booking issue that did not get properly communicated due to a misunderstanding was rectified quickly and completely to my satisfaction. The company has a transparent culture that treats its employees well and that translates to its customers being treated well by its employees.

The guide, Luis, picked us up from the airport and was with us the whole time - all 6 days and nights until he dropped us off at Kilimanjaro airport. He was the absolute highlight of the trip. He had a quiet understated way of showing us wildlife and the surrounding areas and we discovered slowly, layer by layer how much he knew. Dozens of times, he would predict that something would happen - such as - "That giraffe is going to head to that tree" or "That elephant will cross the road" or "That lion is going to move to the shade" or "Those lions will begin mating in a minute" or "That Lion is going to attack those warthogs" and every single time he was right. He would find wildlife by knowing where to look for them. He would be driving and see a speck in the distance and say "That's a hyena" or "That lion is headed towards those Zebras".
Luis was helpful, kind and friendly without needing to be overly attentive and we loved that he would treat us a fellow traveler rather than as an employer. He gave us space but also was available when we needed help. He was a fantastic and very safe driver and extremely knowledgeable about the way things worked.

The places where we were booked to stay were all extremely comfortable and well run and had very friendly, smart, detail oriented staff who ran really nice hotels or tented camps.

We had one problem related to our booking due to a misunderstanding and the way the sales staff, guide and management came together to understand our issue and solve it immediately was impressive. This is why Easy Travel gets such fantastic feedback. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great Safari experience in Tanzania.

We traveled to Tanzania earlier in the year for our much awaited safari trip. This was our (me and my wife) second trip to Africa and this time around we had convinced another couple friend to join us to explore the animal kingdom. Our preparations began 8 months in advance and once we settled on Serengeti, we started reaching out to various tour companies to plan our perfect safari trip. Easy travels simply stood out in the responsiveness and the flexibility to create an itinerary which will suit our demands. Jessica and later Jane were very prompt to respond back to thousand queries I sent her way. Based on our interaction and custom itinerary designed for us, we decided to go for Easy travel to be our safari partner. This was the best decision we took as the safari and entire Tanzania experience would not have been the same without awesome hospitality by entire team of Easy Travel.

Jane was simply outstanding to make sure all our paper work and preparations were in order before we started our 7 day long safari. She met us personally at our Hotel on a Sunday evening to brief us and even got us a few masai blankets. We thought it was a really nice gesture and appreciated the gift a lot.

Let me get to Gerald now, our guide and our best friend from Tanzania. He is absolutely amazing and the nicest person to be with in the planes of Serengeti. On his very first day he made us comfortable and told us all of us are a family and he will do everything possible to make this the trip of our lifetime. And boy he was right. We saw all the big fives except Rhinos on day one from up close. He even told us a lot about Masai history and wildlife in general. We had dietary restrictions and he went above and beyond to make sure all of the lodges/camp sites prepared food properly. He made sure we see the wildebeest river crossing which is one of the most spectacular visuals you would ever see in your life. On our last day in serengeti, he even spotted Rhino for us and completed the big 5 sighting for our group. The highlight of our trip was Cheetah jumping on the top of our vehicle and staying there for 20 minutes using it at a vantage point for his next kill. During this time Gerald remained calm and made sure all of us were safe and enjoyed the experience. Gerald is not only a great guide but has killer dance moves as well. We did famous Ki-Ki challenge and he happily joined us and showed his dancing talents.

Overall, we could not have asked for anything more. Before leaving Chicago, we had doubts if Serengeti will be able to live up to our prior African experience. Easy Travel, Jane and Gerald made sure we had the best time and will remember this trip all our lives.
