We have been thoroughly impressed with Arend safaris throughout the entire planning and execution of our trip. We planned our trip with Thomas over the course of a few months and were grateful for Thomas's helpful and prompt replies to our numerous emails! Thomas was very knowledgeable about Tanzania and what we could expect, and was flexible in terms of tailoring the trip and accommodation to suit our needs.
The safari portion of our trip was the highlight. After a brief delay in Rwanda, we landed in Kilimanjaro and were picked up by our amazing guide, Baraka. We stayed one night at the African Tulip - very nice, and set off the next morning for the Ngongorongo Crater. From the moment we entered the conservation area we saw so many animals - far more than we would have expected on our first day - and all thanks to Baraka! He can spot animals miles away. We had close encounters with a lion, and saw zebra, elephants, giraffes, buffalo and two black rhinos! We spent a night at the Ngongorongoro Farmhouse - again, really great accommodation. The rooms are huge and the grounds are spacious.
We headed to the Serengeti the following day. We had an amazing three days on safari - and saw soooo many animals. We got nice and close to lions and elephants, and even saw two leopards in one day! During our time in the Serengeti we stayed at the Serengeti Kati Kati Camp. This accommodation was exceptional - the tents are all set a little way apart, and you really feel like you're in the middle of it all - which you are. The staff at the Camp are really great, they are all super friendly and make a big effort to ensure you are happy and are having fun. They light a campfire which everyone sits around each night before dinner, before serving dinner in the main tent. Your guide eats dinner with you, which we really enjoyed too.
Our guide, Baraka, was great. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We felt that he fitted in with us perfectly. He was flexible and relaxed and made the whole safari a breeze. We felt very lucky to have him as a guide.
Following our safari we flew direct from the Serengeti to Zanzibar with Auric Air - it was a great flight, with lots to see out the window. We finished our trip with 6 days in Zanzibar. We stayed at the Flame Tree Cottages in Nungwi, a beautiful part of the island. We visited Stonetown and Prison Island - and meet some very old tortoises. The accommodation and the beaches were great.
Overall, an amazing trip made simple and stress free by booking with Arend Safaris. We are very happy and would thoroughly recommend The Arend safaris to any travellers.”
