Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: In close proximity of Arusha lies Arusha National Park. Its compact size and mix of mountains, lakes, forest and savanna filled with wildlife makes for the perfect day trip. We offer a combination of game-viewing by car, on foot and canoe, transport in comfortable 4x4 vehicles and including lunch overlooking the flamingo filled lakes...Other national parks also offer one day escapes but require a little more drive time but Lake Manyara and Tarangire both different in topography and wildlife they hold are accessible. If its culture then this is everywhere laced through Tanzania rich colorful backcountry - if time is short then Arusha town offers a look into the day life of a boiling pot of mixed cultures. Whatever your passion is? we at Bush2Beach Safaris can recommend and help make the most of your time in Tanzania if it's the bush or the beach or anything in between don't hesitate to drop us a line as with over 14 years of designing custom made safaris you are in good hands.

I took my mum on a safari and beach holiday that Annie organised for us. Annie was great - she answered all our questions promptly and was incredibly helpful. The trip exceeded our expectations. On safari, it was like a living documentary - perfect for nature lovers. The time in Zanzibar was the relaxation we wanted after the safari and I thoroughly enjoyed the diving - very professional dive masters (Dive Point). Safaris are expensive but with B2B we had a very customized experience.

Thanks for letting others know about your own live version of national geographic!! safari certainly can be mind blowing with so much to see and take in at one time!! day 3 blends into day 1 and then you are lost as to where you are going next and where you have been...the beach is always a great place to reflect on what you have just experienced thus our name sake of Bush2Beach sums up this very experience. With over 12 years now of creating wildlife safaris and beach holidays in TZ we are able to customize things to fit to your wishes and budget available - Nice to see you blew some bubbles with the team in Matemwe great guys for sure and very experience crew.

Thanks for sharing on behalf of the team at B2B safaris have a great 2018 ahead. .

Our tour guide Michael took perfectly care of us and was really experienced.
Our cook Richard prepared delicious meals and gave us hot water for washing every day.
Also the rest of the crew did a really great job. We had the feeling that the agency takes good care of their employees.
We did the 4 days trip and can totally recommend the walking safari on the 4th day!

Many thanks for sharing your experience with others and great to see the team where on form with Richy whizzing up some tasty meals to keep you well fed and energized for each day.. Meru is not an easy mountain for sure with a lot of challenges along the way but a fantastic hike for those who have limited time and if blessed with clear skies the best view of Kili without a doubt. We strongly recommended the 4 day climb unless you are on some sort of fitness mission!! the long route down or up is a crying shame to miss it out and glad to read you also enjoyed the walk through the towering giants - sure it saved your weary legs some punishment after the summit bid and nice to sit back with the extra day up you sleeve to enjoy the mountain silence.

Will be sure to share you words with the guys and wish you all the best and success with the rest of 2018

I contacted this tour operator because of great reviews and everything. I checked their prices online and they were competitive but when I contacted them they gave me prices that were nearly the double and refused to explain the sudden increase. There's a very shady management and the booking process is made to trick the client into paying more.

Dear Debby - sorry for my silence i have been looking into things myself before responding to you as your review and the severity of your comments is completely out of character for Bush2Beach Safaris which have built its reputation on great personal service and many years of creating competitive custom made safaris with complete customer satisfaction each and every time.!

I have been going through our online booking system that automatically gives a unique code number which is then used for ease of tracking correspondence and confirming the services as the potential safari moves along and after searches with the sales team we do not have a Debby T in our records and the ladies have no recollection of such correspondence in price increase which they would always offered an explanation for such an increase as you state as being double. Perhaps DebbyT is a name you only used for T/A ?
What you see on the web site for Bush2Beach is what you would be quoted with room to adjust if there was some customization required to the sample itinerary you may have selected but this would never increase the cost of the safari quoted by double.

The best solution if you do not mind is to send me the unique safari code you would have received in the subject line or any correspondence you had with the sales person so we can understand if in fact you have been communicating with us here at Bush2Beach Safaris Co ltd as unfortunately there are a few copy-cat companies that have pirated our name in part or whole which has led to confusion over the years.

Very sorry for this unsavory incident, if we are at fault then i can only apologize on behalf of the team but as we are very serious about our customers do drop me mail to chris@bush2beach.com and i will respond accordingly.

Look forward to hearing from you - enjoy your Sunday

Sincerely Chris Pilley
Director/Owner
Bush2Beach Safaris Co Ltd.

Got quotes from 4 safari companies. We liked the itinerary from B2B the best and their price was reasonable. Annie promptly answered all my questions, and met us upon arrival. Edwin, our driver and guide was outstanding and went out of his way to show us everything we requested (except for polar bears). The camps were great and their dinners delishious. After the safari enjoyed 3 relaxing days at the Zanzibar beaches.

"Pole" on the polar bears - will need to talk to Edwin about this!! he is usually pretty good at finding them :-)

All joking aside great to read your review about the team and glad you selected Bush2Beach Safaris as your chosen operator, we understand the selection can be overwhelming and the choice somewhat difficult when you do not know the country - having team players such as Annie bridges these gaps with her many years in country passionate about the bush and understanding what each location/destination can bring.. Hope you avoided the early rains in ZNZ and enjoyed some relaxed moments looking over a turquoise ocean.

Wish you all the best with your endeavors over 2018 - from the team at B2B safaris

From our first contact with Ingrid, to meeting our guide (Charles), Bush2Beach made our once-in-a-lifetime African Safari Adventure more than we could have ever dreamed. Ingrid was so helpful going back and forth with us as we tried to nail down everything we wanted to see. She even came to our first night hotel (The African Tulip) to make sure everything was as we expected and check if we had any questions.

And we were so pleased to meet our guide, Charles. From the second we shook hands, we knew we had lucked out with not only an exceptionally knowledgeable guide, but one with a wonderful sense of humour and a true love for his job. Every day was something different .... and Charles made sure he found everything we had wanted to see, and then some. We can not speak more highly of his skill as a guide or what a truly wonderful person he is.

Thank you both, Ingrid and Charles, for making this the best trip we have ever been on in our 40 years of travelling!

40 years of travel must have brought some amazing encounters and meetings with people from all over the world - it is super encouraging that the team behind Bush2Beach Safaris have etched our own identity in what we hope to be a growing list of destinations and lasting memories as you continue to explore this great adventure called "Life"

Im sure Charles will be very happy to read your comments with the understanding to his role in bringing your dream safari into a reality. Thanks in advance for sharing the good name of B2B Safaris so other safari seekers may have a similar experience of their own.
