My African Safari was phenomenal and it was because of the experience I had with Tanzania Adventure Tours. Promises of an experience of a lifetime was not empty. I’ll be back to Arusha, the Serengeti and all areas of Tanzania again and it will be with TAT.
Hands down the BEST experience of my life! Tanzi Tours provided more than I ever imagined could happen on a safari! TOP NOTCH from the moment we arrived until we left! Going back for my 3rd trip this November! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Working with the TAT team has been the most rewarding experience of my life. There is no more professional, personal company out there. TAT truly made me feel special with the full VIP treatment. When booking my trip I spoke directly with the owners, and always felt like I was truly their most important client. This is the best private tour company that you could travel with. Will definitely be making future plans to work with Tanzania Adventure Tours again!
Gread trip with Said. Everything promised was delivered and exceeded. Saw all the animals. Accommodations and food were perfect. I could not make a higher recommendation. My friends who traveled before me would agree.
There is NO way to pinpoint my favorite part of this experience! From the time I departed Louisiana, until I arrived back 12 days later was phenomenal! The TAT Team (Tanzania Adventure Tours) was simply amazing. The experience of this crew was undeniable. They were the best, most authentic, and truly caring not only for their clients experience but also their beautiful country!
Thanks TAT Team and my family and I will be returning in 2021!
It has taken me quite some time to write this review. Honestly, it's hard to put this experience into words but I will try. A year ago a friend of mine said, "Hey do you want to go to Africa?" Disclaimer; Africa wasn't on my bucket list at the time so, I said maybe. I then went home and discussed it with my wife and family. I quickly realized how great of an experience this could be. The next day I said to my buddy "Count me in!"
This is where things took a turn (for the better). Once connecting with the TAT (Tanzania Adventure Tour) team, I quickly realized this was going to be a life-changing experience. I had never been out of the country so I was a little nervous but man, they took all of the pain out of it. They explained exactly how to get my visa, guided me in obtaining my passport and explained all of the logistics down to what meals to expect at each and every stop.
Once we landed, in Kilimanjaro, we were greeted by Said (one of the TAT guides/owners). Little did we know, he would be the reason our experience would be life-changing! His knowledge of the land, people and attention to detail was light years above the other tour guides that we came in contact with while out and about. I am by nature very observant however, even if you're not, it is easy to see why he is the best! He knew places that others didn't know, he knew where wildlife was when others didn't and he made sure every single person was comfortable and had every amenity possible. He even made sure the amazingly loaded-out Land Cruiser was cleaned every day. Even though he knew it was going to get dirty again the next day. Overall, I could spend days writing about Said. He along with the entire TAT team made the WHOLE trip amazing!
This trip was more than a trip of a lifetime. This trip was amazing, eye-opening, spiritual, etc. Every lodge was vetted by the TAT team and amazing! I had some of the best food I've ever eaten while on this trip. Ultimately, you have a ton of options for guide companies in Tanzania but, for the true white-glove experience, don't pass up Tanzania Adventure Tours as they are the elite! Don't be fooled by huge non-personal companies with old worn-out vehicles when you can cruise the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, etc in luxury.
Honestly, I treat any review the same. It has to be amazing for me to sit down to write it. If you made it this far, thanks for reading and if you've thought about a trip to Africa you MUST contact TAT for the most enriching experience of your life!
We were a group of friends from Tangipahoa Parish in Louisiana and none of us had ever been to Africa prior to this trip. Tanzania Adventure Tours and their team in Arusha made our 9 day visit to Tanzania a trip of a lifetime ! Everything from our vehicle to our guide was exceptional ! We were constantly amazed at the service and amenities at every lodge as well as the cuisine and superior level of service. I will go back to Tanzania and will travel with TAT!
Said is an experienced guide, who provided the most amazing, unforgettable tour for 4 Texans. We upgraded accommodations, and TAT's selection of the Tarangire Safari Lodge, Ngorongoro Farm House, Serena Hotel and Double Tree in Zanzibar were outstanding. The 13 day tour was perfectly paced, starting in the Tarangire National Park, then to the spectacular Serengeti, a day in the Ngorongoro Crater, then ending with a relaxing beach stay on Zanzibar Island. Said's ability to spot a cheetah and her 3 cubs from a long distance in the grass, led to a once in a lifetime photo opportunity and was the highlight of the trip. If this is your first trip to Africa, and you don't know where to start or go, this is the perfect tour. I cannot recommend this tour and the tour guide, Said, more highly. I hope to return with new travel partners in the future as this tour was that good.
