Serengeti Migration Area

The Serengeti is one of Africa’s most captivating safari areas.

Watch out for Leopards lazily laying on trees...

...or spot some giraffes on the wide, open plains.

...constantly moving in a huge loop, following the rains to find the replenished grasses.

"A fantastic first experience of Africa"

I visited Tanzania between 13 Jun 2009 and 21 Jun 2009
"Marvellous experience. The trip exceeded our expectations. We would like to thank Ellie very much for the advice and suggestions she made when putting together the itinery for our safari. She listened to our needs - we are keen bird watchers but we also wished to experience all the diverse aspects of an African safari. She suggested lodges whcih would give us a range of safari experiences and would fit our budget - a tented camp, upmarket lodge and a more basic lodge. We really appreciated this; it worked very well in giving us a broad safari experience for our first time in Africa. We had also specified a guide with a specialist knowledge of birds. Note had been taken of this. Ayoub, our guide, was excellent.

The itinery arrangements (meetings, transfers, accommodation, transport and filights) worked well - without exception.
We would definitely recommend Expert Africa, and Ellie - who always responded very promptly, patiently and knwlegeably to all our queries. We would also recommend our guide, Ayoub. He was very friendly, efficient and looked after us very well in addition to being an excellent wildllife guide.

Suggestions for improvements:

Not really! - outstanding overall trip thanks to Expert Africa and Sokwe/Asilia." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"Safari in Tanzania, short trip to Zanzibar"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 5 Jun 2009 and 20 Jun 2009
"We had an absolutely brilliant safari - we saw loads of animals, more than I had expected. Our guide Halifa was fantastic - he was an amazing spotter, I don't know how he found all the animals but he did it somehow. He was also really helpful and would help out with any problem or enquiry. We also really liked him - very easy to get along with. I would recommend him to anyone going to Tanzania. All the camps we stayed in were excellent, again I'd have no problem recommending any of them. Staff were always helpful and friendly. All the people we met in the camps were very happy and very pleased with the guides and the camps.

The Shooting Star in Zanzibar was very nice, and again the staff very helpful. I think we enjoyed the safari part of the trip more, though - Zanzibar was more a place to relax and do nothing and we're not very good at that! Four nights was enough.

Ellie helped us with the booking and she has been great - she didn't mind any of us ringing up with lots of questions, and could always give you a sensible answer. She really knew her stuff!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 29 Jan 2009 and 6 Feb 2009
"all went smoothly.

The first day was quite long and it appears that Asilia forgot to provide us with a lunchbox and so the camp had to make us a late lunch when we arrived" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 4 on a Tanzania safari

"AMAZING ANIMAL ADVENTURE AND EXOTIC ZANIBAR"

I visited Zanzibar and 1 other country between 22 Jan 2009 and 8 Feb 2009
"On the whole this was an awesome and eyeopening trip. It was an experience not to be missed.

like all holidays there were elements that we might have done differently had we known then what we know now.. . we did try to read up as much as possible beforehand and read between the lines as well. and of course everybody's expectations are so different. I would have loved to have stayed in lots more places on the safari and experience all the different styles and types of lodges, and scenery.

overall it was a great holiday." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zanzibar holiday

"Good trip."

I visited Tanzania between 20 Oct 2008 and 31 Oct 2008
"As previously described it was a trying and frustrating start. The camps were superb.

Every single connection made was flawless.

Perhaps another jeep in each camp would give more choice.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Would be interested in Uganda but you dont do it. Why is this?

Worthy of consideration perhaps?" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 6 on a Tanzania safari

"The Goodall's on Safari"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 18 Oct 2008 and 2 Nov 2008
"Were happy with all the arrangements which went like cloakwork, without exception, which in a country like Tanzania, can be no mean feat!

Were very pleased that we decided to drive across the Senegeti rather than fly. Although a long drive, we certainly had a great feel for the place and gives you a better idea of the different types of scenery.

I am usually fairly critical but could find no fault. It was certainly the most we have paid for a holiday and I would have been very disappointed if the arrangements had been poor.

Suggestions for improvement:

I visited Tanzania between 18 Oct 2008 and 2 Nov 2008
"I had researched quite carefully what I wanted from this holiday, but even so this trip did exceed and surpass expectations.

We were very happy with everything, and on reflection wouldn't have changed anything. We spent some time discussing the options with Ellie before we made a final decision on our itinerary, and felt that the eventual overall balance of the different lodges, camps and locations chosen worked very well for us, providing an excellent overview for a first African safari and visit to Tanzania.

I am very glad that we made the decision to opt for a private safari, especially when we saw how crowded some safari vehicles were, as we really appreciated having our own space and being able to stop as and when we wanted. Albert was a very knowledgeable guide, and an excellent and careful driver - put to the test on the day it rained so heavily and we had to ford a suddenly much swollen stream in flood which had risen rapidly, to get back to camp.

We very much enjoyed going our own way by day, but meeting up with other guests for sociable evenings back in the camps and lodges. I would certainly go for this style of holiday if we decide to take another African trip in the future.

Suggestions for improvement:

No, very pleased with it." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"It was the most fabulous honeymoon ever!"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 11 Oct 2008 and 24 Oct 2008
"I don't think that you need to improve anything we were very pleased with our honeymoon, the first week safaris were so good that I cried when I got to Zanzibar as I wanted to go back to Sayari Camp!

You ensured that we had an unforgettable honeymoon, thank you for all your hard work, Joanne Ingle" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 6 on a Tanzania safari

"A first visit to Africa"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 13 Sep 2008 and 26 Sep 2008
"All of the help we received from Expert Africa was of the highest standard and sent us on our trip with great confidence.

Just a couple of points. We did not realise how tiring the safari travel would be between camps especially to Tarangire and we feel that visitors should be strongly advised to stay there for 3 nights. Also on returning from Tarangire to go to Zanzibar we flew from Manyara to Arusha, with hindsight we feel it would have been better to have travelled by road to Arusha.

Finally, Fishermans tours were also excellent. We booked a tour to a spice farm and also atour around Stone town. Our Guide around Stone Town, Kassim, was excellent. Informative and helpful and of the same high standard of guides that we had received all the trip

Suggestions for improvement:

Could you please provide a map of area that we are to visit ?

This has been for us an excellent experience. A trip of a lifetime. Thank you all." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari
