“Flawless service”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

I've had the best experience with Safari Big 5 that I can't thank the tour guide Imran enough for! From the moment we got into contact about my trip plans, he was extremely responsive and thoughtful in helping me plan all aspects of the trip: from selecting the best landing spot with the cheapest air ticket quote, to traveling with the most efficient route with comfortable lodging. I noticed Imran about my travels very close to the actual travel date yet he was able to secure all air tickets and hotels for me. Yet the most incredible was that when I ran into visa issues (that despite the fact that I could get the entry visa to Tanzania on arrival, I can't leave China without such visa according to Chinese rules), which was an unexpected surprise for both of us only a couple days before I planned to leave China, Imran gave me the most responsible and selfless advice of canceling my trip and refunding me the FULL amount. He chose to shoulder all the transaction cost and revenue duties himself while ensuring that I got all my payment back. I am very thankful of such selfless service that is rare to come by and I will not hesitate to recommend any friend to have Safari Big 5 guide their trip to Tanzania.

Safari Big 5 organized my summit to the peak of the Mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. The company was extremely friendly and helped me find a group that was perfectly tailored to me. From the moment I arrived in Moshi, I felt welcome and in safe hands. The guide came to see me at my hotel and explained the whole process to me. They provided amazing meals all the way to the top of the mountain. Their guides, assistant guides and porters were all very friendly and helpful. The guides were exceptional in that they would not leave anyone behind and were quick to help anyone who needed help. If they saw anyone struggling, they would be at their side trying to ensure that each person reached the summit of the mountain. Overall , this was a magnificent experience and this company took really good care of me and ensured that I reached the top of the highest point in Africa! Thank You.

“Wonderful and memorable experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

An amazing experience visitng Ngorongoro and Tarangire national parks. Everything was arranged smoothly from start to finish. Our driver was awesome and went the extra mile to ensure our safari experience was memorable. The staff at the Octogon was equally accomodating and professional. As we were 2 ladies travelling alone we felt completely safe and taken care of! I would highly recommend Safari Big 5...I can't wait for my next Safari adventure

“Amazing Safari”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

A wonderful experience visiting serengeti and ngorongoro. We really enjoyed our trip out there.
Everything was arranged perfectly. From the guides to the cook and driver.. all were so supportive and helpful during our entire safari experience.
We were put in a good hotel before our journey in Arusha. Mr. Imran himself came to pick us up and made sure we were okay and comfortable after 7-8 hours bus drive from Dar.
A truly wonderful experience and there is still more to be seen.
You want go wrong with Safari big 5 as they really take care of you.
Planning for the Kilimanjaro trip with them soon..

Reviewed December 13, 2013

A truly wonderful and humbling experience visiting the Safari Parks Tanzania has to offer...I was especially pleased with the tailor made package that was designed for me and my newly wedded wife....I will definitely book with Safari Big 5 again in the coming summer....There is still plenty to see and experience - The climb up Kilimanjaro followed by the exotic & stunning beaches in Zanzibar. Can't wait !!
