I have been to 87 countries many of them many times. 10 different countries in Africa and by far my favorite country in the entire world is Tanzania. I have been to Tanzania four times. I just got home on October 13 and I am booked to go there again on December 7th. This time for 30 nights. In September and October I was there for 26 nights. It was my first time to ever book with Outback Safaris. I met this guide at a camp in December 2019. He was not my guide but he was an amazing person. We exchanged WhatsApp contacts and when I was ready to book another safari to go to Tanzania again in September I contact him and he had Manese call me on WhatsApp and that’s where the relationship started. It was an amazing adventure just do work with Manase the owner of Outback Safaris because he worked day and night to put together my trip. It is nine hours difference in the time from the US to Tanzania. Normally I work with a third-party but it would take me up to three or four days to get a response to an email or phone call question I had, but with Outback Safari’s I just video called him on WhatsApp and ask him anything. He gave me great advice he would get my question answered immediately and quickly back to me. He was a decision-maker I didn’t have to wait for five different people to make a decision. Plus the price was great because it cut out another middleman person. Every tiny detail was to perfection with our entire 26 day trip. I would never but with a third-party company again. We did a lot of the research ourselves and called him and he would get right on it to get us the best price. I have never worked with a company like Outback Safari I’ll give them a rating of 10 on a 1 to 5😂 he was outstanding, professional, knowledgeable, and did an excellent job. The jeep was amazing. They even took the first two seats out to give us lots of extra legroom because it was just my husband and I. Anything you request they will do their best to accomplish. Our safari guide was Baruti, And I would not trade him for The world. I have had many safari guides and they were all very good I have nothing bad to say about anyone but I can say Baruti was the best ever! He did an amazing job and our our personality connection was perfect. He kept us very very happy at all times. We saw everything! Literally anything you can possibly imagine like dozens of Wildebeest migration crossings with thousands at a time crossing. It was absolutely breathtaking. And we saw seven cheetah in one day, a Leopard in the tree, baby elephant only two days old. More lions than you could ever imagine. Babies of every animal, the giraffe was so tiny. I could go on for hours and I have the pictures and videos of everything to prove it. Sometimes I think of myself National Geographic could not have anything any better. Outback Safari gave us the best safari we have ever been on. The details of the hamper lunches with the beautiful tablecloth and the extra touches were amazing. Again I have booked many trips but booking with Outback Safaris took everything to a whole new level The camps, the food, the service, the guide and most importantly the booking process. I would recommend Tarangire, and any part of the Serengeti according to the time of the year that you go. and never do you want to miss Ngorongoro crater. Into me there is no other place to stay there besides Ngorongoro Serena. Also I would much rather stay at luxury campground lodges other than the Serena lodge on the Ngorongoro crater rim. We are also very partial to Nimali camps. They are also a local company in Tanzania as is Outback Safari’s. Outback did recommend Lemala to us this year and now we are big Lemala fans as well. This trip coming up we are staying at a couple of new camps combined with our Nimali and Lemala camps because we are going to a new area. We are excited to try these new camps and meet new people. Anywhere I have ever stayed in Tanzania I find the people to be amazing. I always exchange WhatsApp contacts and stay in touch forever with all of them. And because of that I found Outback Safaris. Our WhatsApp video calls turned us into friends as well. We met his children and wife. I would highly highly highly recommend using and spreading the word about Outback Safaris. May God bless any trip anyone ever takes to Tanzania. It is a life-changing experience. It gets in your blood. This will be my fifth time. I can never get enough. We have even been to the schools in the villages. Now we bring stuff for them last time school supplies and candy. This time Bibles and candy. It does it get any better than having your Safari company take you to those scores and translate the language for you. I keep saying I but everywhere you see the word I it really means we. My husband feels the same about everything and everyone as I do. WE LOVE OUTBACK SAFARIS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I also recommend Baruti as your guide.
