Excellent Safari My wife and I have been on 3 safaris and we were very happy with our experience organized by Serengeti Sons Safaris. The tour coordinator, Grace, and our driver, Simon, made every effort to meet our needs. We booked a custom 6 day safari and saw a huge variety of animals and birds. Simon was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and dealt with some very difficult, muddy driving to ensure that we had the best wildlife views possible. Simon also had a strong photographic sense which helped us find the best viewing locations. Accommodation was excellent and provided some interesting variety. We would strongly recommend Serengeti Sons as a responsive, price competitive safari provider.

The Serengeti Experience - A worthwhile Experience I have visited many parks like the Kruger Park in South Africa and the Akagera ParK in Rwanda, but the Serengeti Experience was out of this world. Among other attractions, I was able to see 4 of the 'Big Five' (the lion, the leopard, the buffalo and the elephant) in one game drive within two hours. Another major attractions was seeing the lions mating and stalking (in an ambush for) a prey. I am planning seriously to witness the migration in another visit to the Serengeti.

A wonderful safari experience with Serengeti Sons We (2 persons) booked a 7 day Safari with Serengeti Sons quite to Tarangyre, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Manyara. They managed to organise a most wonderful trip, really tailored to what we liked: as much walking as possible and staying most closely to nature as possible. It was even greater than we had expected - nature, accomodation, organisation etc. Specials thanks to their flexibility since we booked with only about 10 days in advance!!! Highly recommended...

Safari Probably one of the best trips I have ever taken. George our tour guide was amazing. Highly recommend him. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think we would’ve had the same experience. George is like the unofficial president of Tanzania. He knew everyone there and he was always a phone call away from helping us find whatever animals we wanted to see. I highly recommend Serengeti Sons.

Great experience Our safari tour with Serengeti Sons was a great experience. Before the actual trip, Grace proved very reactive and she really went to a great deal of trouble for us when we lost 3 our 4 pieces of our luggage on the plane. Jonas, our driver, was quite experienced and knowledgeable, and always keen on learning more about birds. We felt safe with him and he made it a point of honour to keep the car clean. He had a real knack to find animals : we will never forget how he managed to be in the best spot to introduce us to a magnificent leopard. The food was excellent. Thanks again for such a great experience.

Book with Serengeti Sons Safaris From the moment we began communicating with Quintin his goal was to determine what kind of experience we were looking for.This is tough when it's your first time.He took the time to get to know us and then customized a Safari and Zanzibar beach vacation.We wanted a little of everything and were willing to scrimp on some things so that we could splurge on others. Quintin's extensive knowledge and expertise delivered a package we loved. Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Lake Victoria, Ngoronogoro and then off to Zanzibar to relax on the beach. Grace in the office couldn't have chosen a better guide for us, George, who met us at the airport with his big beautiful smile and was the perfect match. He was transformed from guide to FRIEND! We had a range of accommodation experiences, again to fit our budget, that delivered the basics and then others that went above and beyond, our favorite, that we truly didn't want to leave, was the Serengeti Acacia Central Camp. The staff were exceptional, the ambiance absolutely delightful and they deserve the tips. Our 5 star experience was Acacia Farm Lodge - fabulous! The thing about Safari is that you can never be guaranteed what you see but our guide, George, had eagle eyes at spotting animals.How he found that leopard in the tree still baffles us. George understands customer service and we are grateful to have been blessed to experience his hospitality. He kept his Land Cruiser exceptionally clean (we joked about how we had our daily massage with all the bumpy roads) he shared his wealth of knowledge about the animals and surrounding areas while quietly and enthusiastically fulfilling our every request. He's a good man! We chose to have a private experience rather than be in a group which worked wonderfully for us. We could stay longer where we wanted and move on at any time without sacrificing getting to know fellow travelers at the end of the day for dinner and socializing. We know of others that have flown around Africa to see a wider variety of parks but honestly the Serengeti region has it all, there is no need to go elsewhere. Our best animal experience - watching(and filming)a lioness hunt and take down a zebra which she then shared with her pack of 16. Oh by the way - if you're wondering whether the financial investment is worth it - it is the trip of a lifetime. Tip where warranted. Rest assured that OUR experience leaves us eager to recommend Serengeti Sons Safari. A company with integrity.

Wonderful experience. Serengeti Sons were a terrific experience. My driver Simon was experienced and knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. We logged a few miles together on some rough roads and survived and laughed through most of it! Our accommodations were excellent, once out of Arusha, and our tent camp experience will remain a highlight of my visit to Africa. I saw my first leopard and cheetah in the Serengeti which was an experience to remember! Overall Serengeti Sons took wonderful care of me and I felt like I was in good hands.
