“If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC African Safari & KILIMANJARO TREKKING!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
Our safari tour designer provided absolutely professional and first-class service. Every booking and guide, porters, driver and staff person we met were exemplary, and the suggestions they made for us were fantastic. As first-time travelers to Africa, with group of 10 students we had many questions, and our agent responded promptly and in detail to all our questions. Brian, the company’s managing director and his partner met with us in person not once but twice - that level of service is something we have not encountered before. Our Kili guide and Safari driver was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly tour staffs we have ever met - we were sad to leave them. We cannot recommend this safari tour company highly enough! Our expectations were high, and they were exceeded!”
“I did the 7 day lemosho route with Enosa Expeditions and had a great time. First of all the hotel before and after is top notch just what you need after a 7 day climb.
Climb was great guides and crew were fantastic. Couldn't ask for more and all for a great price.”
“My husband and I recently returned from a eight days safari in Tanzania, the wildlife was really exciting. We saw many animals in the nature. This was one of the best experiences we ever had. Everything was organised perfectly. Accommodation was superb and the game drives were exceptional. A special mention to our guide for being amazing. He was very friendly, but at the same time he also allowed us plenty of time to ourselves. I really suggest to you to do this.”
“Tour generally was pretty good. Tour leader was very relaxed but knew a lot about the tour and areas we were visiting. Accommodation was sometimes pretty basic for a mid-range tour but it was Africa!”
“I thought it was a good tour we got to visit lots of highlights but at the expense of long travel days. I felt v rushed at points for example at Victoria Falls - more time should be allocated. Perhaps the itinerary could be tweaked to improve the tour.”
Friendly people and a beautiful culture are what makes holidays in Tanzania unique. Tanzania is most famous for Serengeti National Park, one of the best wildlife destinations on the planet. The park is home to those big game animals and is the perfect place for a safari. The wildlife and national parks of Tanzania steal away all the limelight, but the country’s beaches are also known to be equally magical. Tanzania is surrounded by islands that offer sleepy villages steeped in centuries-old culture and Swahili traditions and the powdery beaches that simply blow you away. Mount Kilimanjaro, another highlight of Tanzania, can be conquered by the most inexperienced hikers as well, as long as you carefully acclimatize as you ascend, and have the willpower to summit. A trip to Tanzania would be incomplete without visiting the markets and mosques of Stone Town in Zanzibar.
Get a bird’s eye view from the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Experience the Serengeti and see the variety of wildlife it has to offer.
Learn about the variety of primate in the Mahale Mountains National Park.
Soak up the sun on the Eastern coast of Africa at Unguja, Nugwi, or Matemwe Beaches.
Swim with the fishes at Mafia Island, or get an in depth olfactory experience in the Spice Islands.
Take in Zanzibar and its mélange of Middle Eastern, African, and Indian cultures
Plan time to see the country; it is vast and takes time to experience.
Be on the lookout for creatures that are native to Tanzania, like the Kilimanjaro Shrew, or the Highland Rain Frog.
Take the train; many places can be reached by railway.
Read up before you go; there is plenty of literature on Tanzania.
Pack light; travel is a little more complicated there, so make sure you pack for it.
Don’t stick to just the tourist attractions; there is a lot to see that might be a little off the beaten path, like visiting the Underwater Room at the Manta Resort.
Keep in mind that the more remote you are, the spottier your reception will be. You won’t be cut off completely, but it will be harder to get a connection.
