My wife and I researched and shopped around a ton before finally deciding to use MSafiri for our 2-1/2 week trip to Tanzania. We choose them because they were responsive, competitively priced, and worked to meet some of the more unique requests we had for our trip.

From the time we arrived in Dar es Salaam to our flight back home they took amazing care of us. We were invited to meet Leina’s family our first night in town and sample Chef David’s traditional Tanzania food we’d be eating during our Safari. From there we headed out on a whirlwind tour of Southern and Northern Tanzania. In the first park (Selous) alone we saw crocodiles, hippos, hyenas, giraffes, lions, and a small troop of elephants. Each park offered a new collection of animals to spot, photograph, and enjoy.
- A troupe of Hippos sun bathing on the river bank
- Leopards eating a Gazelle they’d dragged up a tree
- A mother Cheetah feeding her two young cubs
- Hundreds of Buffalo and Zebra littering the countryside
- Lions camped out on a ledge overlooking the Serengeti
- Two Giraffe fighting by swinging their necks at each other
- Several hundred Wildebeest crossing the Mara river
- A lone Rhino trampling through Ngorongoro Crater

We owe all of that and more to our drivers/guides Yunis and Charles. I’m pretty competitive and tried to out spot them the entire trip, but didn’t get anywhere close. They were really flexible in when we left, how long we were out, and where we went within the parks. Meanwhile Chef David made sure we had plenty of great food to keep us going. If we wouldn’t make it back for lunch he’d prepare delicious pack lunches and have them ready for us in the morning, even when we left at 6 am.

I’ll just close with saying that we cannot recommend MSafiri enough if you’re planning a safari to Southeastern Africa. From hiring skilled guides/drivers/chefs, to their customer centric focus, they made our safari better than anything we thought we’d receive. Leina will take excellent care of you and make sure your safari is one you’ll never forget, I guarantee it.
