Tanzania 12-Day Tour Reviews

Worth it!! Kilimanjaro and safari package, 11 days Reviewed 11 Day Tour: Kilimanjaro Climbing + Tarangire & Ngorongoro safari

  • Deborah Chan

“Firstly, Brian from Dahlia was easy to work with and was flexible to some last minute changes. We had to delay our flight due to some delayed Covid results, and he was able to accommodate our request to push the tour two days at the last minute.The support for the Kilimanjaro climb was great. Everyone from the guide to the porters was rooting for you to succeed.Our guides Fredy and Samwel, were always available and they stuck with us closely. In addition, they were very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, which we particularly appreciated. They allowed us to take as many pictures and numerous time spotted hard to see animals and birds.Dahlia provided great camping tents and they fed us more than enough on every meal. Every campsite seem to be chosen for the best of the clients by the porters who went ahead of us on each leg of the journey.For the safari, our guide and driver, Malaki, was with us throughout the 3 days. He even fought our case when someone jump queue during our Covid test. He was knowledgeable and was accommodating to our needs and wants. He was good at spotting the animals and birds.We stayed in two different accommodations during the safari leg. The first was Ngorongoro Forest Tented Lodge, that was excellent, well above expectation. The second was a result of an unexpected problem that caused a last minute change. It was still nice but a little dated. Brian was apologetic about the situation.It was great that Dahlia included 3 different parks to visit, each with slightly different things to potentially see. We had a late return flight and Malaki made the most of the last day.”

“I booked the 12 day combo package; first a climb up kilimanjaro (tent camping) and then a truck tour of the serengeti national park. PROS:- Our Mountain Guide, Jafari ("Rafiki" was his nickname), had GREAT english. Very fun to chat with.- My wife and I got to see a lion take down an antelope, very exciting!- Food on the mountain was 3.5/5, food in safari hotels was 5/5.CONS:- Airport pickup was confusing. We arrived at night, and it was difficult at first to find our Kopa Tours pickup lady.- Some hotels only had single pillows. I prefer to sleep with two.”
