Trip of a lifetime!
My family and I experienced the trip of a lifetime in November 2014. I cannot recommend Regional Tours & Safaris, Maturaf and our safari guide, Ewa, enough. Our entire trip to Tanzania was well-organized and carefree. Maturaf and I worked very closely to customize a trip that incorporated everything that we wanted to experience, while working within our budget. We hiked Mount Kilimanjaro, safaried through Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, then spent several days in Zanzibar. All accommodations, transfers and staff were exceptional! Everyone we encountered went above and beyond from the planning to being on the trip itself. We enjoyed ourselves very much and would HIGHLY recommend working with Regional Tours & Safaris.
This was my third time in Tanzania Serengeti using the company Regional Tours. All of the drivers are excellent! First, they are all very friendly and are very willing to share their vast knowledge about Tanzania culture, landscape, history and wildlife. Second, they are very safety oriented and want to make certain that you have a very safe and enjoyable trip. Depending on the weather, road conditions can quickly change and they were always able to handle everything without problems. Third, they know where to find the wildlife!! While in Tanzania, we also were able to stay at the Ngorongoro Farm House. The accommodations there are good and it is very nice to stay at a site that is completely solar powered and eco-friendly. In addition, the staff at the Coffee Farm was AMAZING! Sarah is the best cook you could ever encounter and you will be delighted to try the great food that she cooks for you. In addition, all of the staff was very helpful. It was amazing.
Regional Tours offered us different options to book a Safari in Tansania... They were very friendly and helpful and could suggest us everything in detail! If you go on safari with them: MUST SEE: Serengeti and NGorongoro National Park!!! less attractive: Lake manyara (in dry season) If you wanna go to Zanzibar, they know perfect hotels and things to do while on the island! Thanks a lot to Maturaf!
We took a 6 night safari with three nights on Zanzibar in June. We contacted Maturaf by email. We told him what we were looking for and he put together a amazing trip. We requested different lodging for two nights, and they adjusted the package happily. The lodges and tented camps they use are 1st class. Most places only had 15 -30 rooms, and they take great care of the guests. The food was great, too! Our guide Emmanuel was terrific! We couldn't have asked for a better companion. On safari you spend a great deal of time with your driver and he can make or break your entire adventure. We didn't understand this when we planned our trip but hit the lottery with Emmanuel. He was an ambassador for his country; a blessing to his company; and a role model of his industry. His patience, knowledge and kindness added greatly to the best vacation of our lives.
