“From the very beginning, our travel agent was flexible with our budget and needs and gave us an excellent recommendation for a 10-night safari and 5days in Zanzibar Islands. Every aspect and every question were thoroughly covered by both of our travel company contacts. They gave us a full breakdown of what to expect each day from both the driver/guide and the accommodations through both an online portal and a customized pamphlet that gave tips on everything from the details of the accommodations to tipping customs to even what to pack for the trip.
We actually ran into a problem with a self-booked flight heading into the safari the flight had been cancelled without any notification to me or my husband. I contacted our travel company to let them know, and our contact was all over it, even though the flight had not been part of the itinerary that our travel company had covered. He was able to get in touch with the airline that cancelled and helped to ensure that we were booked on another airline to get to Kilimanjaro Airport to be in time for the start of our safari.
While our guide was amazing and knowledgeable throughout the entire trip, the accommodation at the Mbugani Tented lodge in Central Serengeti was perfect. My husband and I were thrilled with how luxurious the tent was, but what really made the stay was the staff. They were so kind and thoughtful, I had the flu throughout the entire stay and they made sure I had enough fresh ginger tea to cure an entire family with the flu. The last night we were there, they made us a special dinner outside, underneath the stars. The staff sang and danced us a farewell song and we had such a wonderful time!!! Our guide, Bashiri was fantastic at spotting animals during our safari and the staff at Mbugani were absolutely wonderful to us. It's the people that made the biggest difference for us.
I cannot thank our agency enough for the amazing honeymoon that we had.”

“I would thoroughly recommend this trip with Dahlia Africa– it was simply magical! We were a little worried that this was a local company of whom we knew nothing and we have been used to the large global operators in this field. We need not have worried at all. The itinerary was perfect and, with the interludes of visiting local school, orphanage home and coffee & Banana plantations, we had a perfect mixture of cycling to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and interesting things to do with local community. The bikes were great and the hotels were a very good choice. The terrain was challenging, as this is the cycling to the highest point of Africa, but we did not need to get off and push at all. Our group of experience mountain cyclist all got up to the summit and the views were simply breathtaking! Our guide, FAZA, was wonderful, with his perfect English, he was both charming and interesting as well as caring and thoughtful, he and his team was much more than just mountain team as they were at all times looking after us and keeping eyes on how we were doing, stopping at just the right time to give us rest, fresh water and delicious food, exactly when we needed it. If we tired, and we did sometimes, then they were more than ready and willing to pack up the bikes and take us into the cool rocks to rest. All in all it was a really good week and the very best cycling tour we have done anywhere in the world, and that is saying a lot….. as we have done cycling holidays in England, France, Italy, Cuba and Croatia. This one beat them all hands down!
Never forget to mention the company’s owner Brian, very generous and down to earth person his sense of humor and the way he organizes his team with gentle and discussions made our trip as smooth as possible.”

for 8-Day Tanzania Safari
Andreas Blome From Germany On
“This company listened to what we wanted out of a trip and put together an incredible itinerary tailored to us. They were very knowledgeable and was available during the trip to ensure it went smooth. We always had a guide with us which was very welcome. The trip far exceeded our expectations. Amazing guides, top notch lodging, and itinerary that made the most of our time.
The trip was perfect and if I had more vacation I would add a few days at the end to help familiarized more with Dahlia tours team, they are so generous.”

for Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing 7-Day Rongai Route
Paul O’Carroll From Holland On
“My son (10) and I (51) just finished our Kilimanjaro climb. Iam the experienced backpackers and were prepared for the trip but my son NOT. I have a few observations that may be helpful to others. We went during rainy season, and the crowds were non-existent. We chose the Rongai route, which approaches from the dry north side and descends via the Marangu route on the south side. The weather was not that bad, and we never had more than one other small group at any of our campsites. I highly encourage going during the slow season. On summit night, we were the first to Uhuru, and saw maybe 15 people on our way down. I can't imagine waiting in line for a picture by the sign as we were told happens during peak times. The solitude was great. We used 15-degree F bags and were always warm, and hiked in trekking shoes, not boots. We had high levels of snow on our summit day (the rainy season brings a lot of snow), but with gaiters the hiking shoes were not an issue. The snow during this season was beautiful. The hike down and through the rain forest in well maintained, and you do not have to hike through mud on this route as some suggest, so again shoes are fine if that is what you normally hike in.

We used Dahlia tours & safaris and service was outstanding. We had good nutrition and a competent guide, which is all that is needed. We took a guided town tour of Moshi before our climb, which was a great cultural experience. We totally recommend Rongai route and Dahlia Africa for Kilimanjaro Hiking.”

for Climbing Kilimanjaro 8-Day Lemosho Route
Linda Winston From Germany On
“A few years ago, our son suggested that we climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with him, but we were quite hesitant, because we were 60 at the time. We have done quite a bit of hiking, including Mt. Whitney, but never anything higher that 14,500 feet. After reading about this great hike on The Dahlia tours site, we decided to go for it. So, we trained for two years, and on February 13, 2019, our son, Brian, two of his friends, Joel, and Rose, and my husband, Bob, and I, started out on our eight-day Lemosho route hike. Our guide was Faza and assistant guides, Leon and Peter. Amon took care of us in camp, and Asha did some excellent cooking for us. The mountain was amazing, and our guides and the whole crew were kind, helpful, very friendly, respectful, and made our hike a fantastic adventure. They helped us every step of the way. We even had our own, little private toilet set up for us each day by one of the porters. They called my husband Papa, and me Mum, and they made sure we were safe and had a great time. Faza, Leon and Peter trained us to go pole, pole, and so we all successfully reached the summit. We loved every minute of our adventure, and part of our hearts are still in Tanzania with Dahlia Africa. Our 7-year-old grandson asked if we would climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with him, so it is on our calendar for 10 years from now, when he is 17 and we are 72. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to get Faza, Leon and Peter to guide us to the roof of Africa one more time. We will surely get back but for now we recommend Dahlia tours for All of your trip in Tanzania.”
