    Professional thoroughly. Florian (known as Kartoonz) was great and knew exactly what the customers want to see. Food was great and Gadi went above and beyond asking what it picky two year old would eat. (Gadi loves carrots I think :) ). Overall trip of a lifetime with these guys. Do it. P.S. of it matters to you, the state park bathrooms are the cleaner I have seen. I am going to bring the rest of the family in a couple of years as this trip was fabulous all thanks to hubby and Meru Slopes!

    We had the most amazing tour with our guide Aron.
    2 days tour through Tarangire and Ngorongoro which were superb, a lot thanks to the efforts of Aron who drove us everywhere so we didn’t miss anything.
    We saw some really incredible raw wild scenes, and we came back to Arusha absolutely amazed!
    Food was always great and so was accommodation.
    Massive thanks Aron for being so available and providing such great experience!
    Super recommend!!

    The tour is a must if you’re in the area! The guide (Andrew) was super friendly, he picked us up from our hotel and we felt we were in good hands right away. Andrew was very experienced and helped us make the most out of our day. We truly enjoyed every part of the tour.

    We had a 3 day tour and had a great time. Some tips here is to be patient and trust the guide will take you to places, I remember at the beginning of the trip I didn't understand why we didn't stop to see a hippo submerged in water, only for the next day do be a few meters from 50-100 of them resting in a small lake. In short we saw a ton of animals and had a great time. With the cheaper prices you should realize you'll probably be camping, and to be honest, while it's not as comfortable I found it an unmissable experience to camp with all these animals around and we were treated to some amazing views at night. Make sure to bring something warm if you camp, it can get cold at night. I also really appreciated the food throughout the tour.

    We, a couple, booked 4 days group-safari at Travel Africa Safari Agency. It was our first trip to Africa, therefore we did a lot of research before. Based on many positive reviews we chose the Travel Africa Safari Agency and we didn't regret it!

    First of all, the communication with Mohamed, the owner, was very easy. He answered any questions quickly and was always available, both per Mail and per WhatsApp.

    We were picked up from the Kilimanjaro airport and spent the night before the safari at the Arusha Tourists Inn Hotel (it was included in the safari booking). The hotel was ok. It is situated rather central in Arusha. The room and bathroom were spacy and clean. We could order something to eat at the hotel's restaurant although it was already late and drank a beer before going to sleep.

    Next day we were early picked up by Benjamin, who was our guide and driver for the safari. He was very friendly, easy-going and good-humoured.

    After we had picked up another 2 couples in Arusha, our safari has started. We drove first to Maniara, where we picked up our chef and all the stuff, what is needed for safari.

    After that we drove to the Serengeti National Park. There we spent a night at the camping ground. Next day very early we made a game-drive until midday. We saw plenty of wildebeests and zebras, many hyenas, lions and hippos etc. After lunch at the Camping Site we drove to Ngorongoro. There we spent another night at a camping ground near the Caldera. Next day, again very early we went to the Caldera. It was fascinating to be in an enclosed little world! There we saw also a rhino and of course many other fascinating animals! After lunch at the Camping Site we drove to Maniara, where we spent a night at the Fig Lodge - a nice, clean and cosy hotel. The next morning we went to the Tarangire National Park. There we saw especially many elephants. In the afternoon we were brought back to the Arusha Tourists Inn hotel for the last night before going to Zanzibar.

    We would like to thank Mohamed for the excellent safari! It was at any case worth the price we paid! Our driver Benjamin was very competent and also very eager to find so many animals as possible! Unfortunately we didn't see a leopard, but nevertheless the whole safari was just amazing and so much fun! We can hardly recommend Benjamin as a perfect safari guide!

    Our tent was good. Actualy, the most exciting thing about camping was a real closeness to the wilderness. During the night some animals, such as zebras even went through the Camping Site! And the stargazing was incredible! The shower at Serengeti camp was a cold one, but it made adventure feeling even more exciting. Our chef was also excellent. He prepared every meal fresh. We had always yummy Pancakes and omelett for breakfast and other food was also very good. We had even a pizza for dinner - don't know how it is possible without an oven.

    We are glad to have booked this safari at Mohamed and his Travel Africa Safari Agency. It will be one of our most precious memories!

    This one-day safari was perfect for seeing a lot in such a short time. I definetely recommend longer safaris, but if you don't have the time, the tarangire day trip is great. Tarangire is rich in wildlife and if you are a fan of elephants - such as myself - this is the place for you. I saw 3 of the big five and it was an unforgettable day. Benjamin was an amazing guide, who taught me a lot about wildlife and life in Tanzania.

    The safari was amazing!! I travelled solo but I've shared the adventure with people from different parts of the world. Not only it was an unbelievable experience in terms of what you can see, both when it comes to sightseeing and animal spotting, but it was also a fun one! I took the budget camping option and camping in the wild proved to be the best decision. A special mention goes to Geoffrey, Robert and Gaddi who are amazing tour guides and, above all, incredible people willing to go the extra mile and help you when in need. Enjoy!!

    Tour operator Gabriel was extremely helpful and communicative. The experience was very comfortable and we saw a range of animals on the day. The drivers stick to the assigned roads so you may not see things as close as you may anticipate but it does make for a more ethical experience.

    From the very first correspondence, we knew we were with the right company! We were so pleasantly surprised at the consistent, professional and friendly communications prior to our arrival, and from the moment we were greeted at the airport, our expectations were all exceeded. For the next several days we were treated to a local's view of all the best places to see, dine and experience, and it was like we were spending time with an old friend! We could have never found all interesting and delightful places on our own. Allan the owner of Nkollo tours went above and beyond everyday to make sure our time in Arusha was truly exceptional! We highly recommend Nkollo tours!

    We wanted to support a local company in Tanzania and took contact to Meru Slopes Tours and Safaris. The manager Geoffrey was immediately very helpful in answering our questions and trying to design a safari after our requests. Even when we had problems with bank transfers Geoffrey was calm and helpful. Everything was so well arranged from start to end. The drivers from/to the airport were so friendly, funny and good careful drivers.

    Eddy/Edi, our fantastic guide was very knowledgeable about all animals, birds, vegetation ect. He knew great spots to observe the animals. Eddy had the right and respectful attitude towards the wild animals by getting close enough without disturbing. Also he said: Now we'll let the cheetah rest so it can eat it's prey." What a fantastic ambassador for the animals. We stayed 3 great places and were well taken care of and had some fantastic and giving days with Eddy. Thanks to all on the team of Meru Slopes Tours and Safaris - you're great. The very best recommendations from us.
