Awesome and Fun Guides!

I had to come back and write a review for these guys years later. While staying in Tanzania for a month, my friends and I were very lucky to have met these guides! We spent an incredible three days journeying with them to beautiful places including the Ngorongoro Crater and a Maasai Village. They are very fun and energetic guys. They were very helpful and genuinely wanted our group to have a great time. They made sure to stop along the way for us to explore food stands, shops, etc. if we wanted, though they provided great food as well. The Maasai Village was incredible. We were greated so warmly by all. It was quite the experience. We carried water on our heads, milked cows, took part in a celebration, and camped out under the most magnificent sky I have seen to date. The Ngorongoro Crater really needs no explanation, it was a wonderful safari experience. We also made a few other short stops along the way at a reptile farm, a maasai museum, and got to take camel rides! I would absolutely recommend Open Safari for your African Safari Experience! You will not regret it!!
Authentic Maasai experience

My friends and I went on a tour to an authentic Maasai village and stayed with one of the families living there. Everything about the experience was amazing. We were shown how to carry water on our heads and milk cows. In the evening they had a bonfire for us and did a bit of a dance. When it got dark we saw the most stars I have ever seen in my life, it was truly beautiful. Everyone went to bed and we heard music so we hiked up the mountain for a few minutes and found a bunch of kids singing and two ladies playing the drums. We sang and danced with them for hours until they invited us into a hut and we had some sort of prayer or welcome ceremony. This was not part of the tour, but our tour guide Gaby accompanied us and explained what was happening. We just happened to find a lovely group in the next village who were happy to see us. It was easily one of the best nights of my life. The tour also included a trip to a reptile zoo where we got to learn about animals and go on a camel ride. There was also a circumcision museum which was strange but informative. Also, the food they provide is delicious and I am not easily impressed. I highly recommend going on any tour with John and Anthony. Asante sana!
"unforgettable Safari Experience!"

My parents booked our tour with Open Africa Safaris at the last moment. The company was not only extremely responsive, but also flexible with us. John was very kind and patient through our communication about our trip. He was so quicky to answer all our questions we had. He also explained every expectation of our trip, such as the weather in Tanzania, visa application process, flight tickets purchasing options and much much more. His communication with us was absolutely excellent. He made very good suggestions on where to go and what to do in Tanzania. On our arrival at the Kilimanjaro airport, we met our tour guide Anthony, he was a 30+ year very kind and friendly. He is extremely knowledgeable and well known by the locals. During our safari, we ended up seeing way more animal babies and wild life than we ever expected. we also loved our visit to Maasai boma on our way back from safari. The tents, mattresses and sleeping bags were new and clean. I highly recommend Open Africa Safaris to any traveler for unforgettable safari experience.
