Simba Safaris Day Tours
Ranked #56 of 460 Tours in Arusha
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Our guide Mwala, Sultan of the Serengeti, Mayor of Arusha, was fantastic. His eye for game is amazing. He has extensive knowledge of the mammals, birds, plants, history of northern Tanzania.
There were many hours of driving (1900km!) on our week long tour of Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara, and Tarangire. He remained alert and safe the whole time. How he can both drive so well and spot game at the same time is a mystery. I recommend Mwala and Simba Safaris.

Let me start by saying that your safari experience is only dependant on how good your guide is. I know this because we did back to back safris, one in Masai Mara and the other in Serengeti. Masai Mara trip was organized by wild trek safaris and the one in Serengeti was planned by Simba safaris.
Masai Mara experience was outstanding because our guide was vocal, knowledgeable and motivated. In Serengeti, our guide was pathetic, lost in his own world, disengaged, and only motivation he had was how soon he can get done with the day... Simba safaris website says all drivers are at least 10 years experienced.. When I asked the driver he mentioned he only had 5..
All in all after charging us almost 1000$ a day between 2 of us, for six nights in total.. The experience was pathetic. I'm sure with a better guide things would have been much different.

We were a group of 8 with 2 safari suv's. Hussan and ChaCha were our guides. This company was unbelievably knowledgeable about all wild life, fauna and local customs. We felt very informed and safe in their company for our 4 day safari. They catered to our needs at all times. You must use this company if you are going on a safari.
