Andrea - " Reliable .. and passionate with everything which regards Africa"

Safari – Aug’19

(lake ManyaraNgorongoro, Serengeti, Natron, Selous & Ruaha)

 

At the beginning of July 2019, I wrote to Safari Crew Tanzania and a number of other T.O. members of ATTA for a two-person, 15-day safari beginning in August 2019, with already fixed flights from and to Europe. As I had already been in Tanzania, I asked for a tailored private safari including both northern and southern circuits to see some places I already saw and adding new ones.

After a few e-mails exchange, the Safari Crew competitors proposed us patched itineraries directly taken from their standard safaris, resulting in useless intermediate stops and in a not well structured trip. On the contrary, the Safari Crew Director first proposed a phone call in order to deepen our requests and analyse the possible alternatives and difficulties; after a number of phone talks, he sent us an itinerary. Though a bit more expensive, the Safari Crew proposal (1 day Lake Maniara and Ngorongoro crater, 2 days in central Serengeti and 3 days in northern Serengeti, 1 day in Lake Natron, 3 days in Selous G.R. and 3 days in Ruaha N.P., including internal flights and only one intermediate night in Arusha) was well balanced and tailored on our needs.

Malaki, the guide we had in the northern circuit, was always attentive to all of our practical needs and also very smart during the safaris: he has a very good knowledge of the animal behaviour and could spot them at incredible distances. He knew exactly where stopping the car to wait for the animals to approach us. Kahimba, the guide from Mdonya old river camp whom we had in the Ruaha N.P., also had an incredible sight and was always attentive; he has a deep knowledge of the whole park ecosystem and is particularly fond of elephants: he let us see and understand many details of their behaviour that we did not imagine although we already had many safaris. None of them tried to save his time cutting the drives in the afternoon and they both did their best to satisfy our expectations. This should be the standard, but does not always happen.

We are satisfied about the safaris and all the operator services

Marco & B. - "We'll never forget this trip"

Safari – Aug’19

(lake ManyaraNgorongoro & Tarangire)

 

The organization was perfect, since the booking phase where Rocco was very helpful and he recommended the best tour for our short stay and even though we decided to have this trip only one week before the departure, Safari Crew was able to find very comfortable lodges and connections from and to the Kilimanjaro airport.
Our guide Isaac Taylor was amazing! He brought us throughout this incredible country with his experience and kindness, he gave us the opportunity to live a stunning experience that in the end was even above our expectations. We felt part of the wildness and we got amazed by the beauties of Tanzania. Thank you Isaac for everything, we will never forget this trip.

Safari Crew highly recommended.

I hope to see you soon.

Rita - "Again with Safari Crew ...perfect"

Safari – Feb’19

(lake ManyaraSerengeti)

 

5 anni fa, sempre a febbraio abbiamo fatto il primo viaggio in Tanzania con Safari Crew…meraviglioso! 9 giorni… Manyara, Serengeti, Tarangire e Ngorongoro!

Questo febbraio dopo 5 anni abbiamo riprenotato con loro chiedendo ed ottenendo la stessa guida (Yusuf ragazzo splendido con un italiano a dir poco invidiabile). Questa volta avendo lasciato a casa il nostro bimbo di tre anni abbiamo optato per solo quattro giorni effettivi di Safari (Serengeti Seronera e Lago Ndutu) sempre perfetto, strutture ottime ed avvistato tutto il ciò che si poteva sperare! Safari CREW assolutamente imbattibile!! Grazie Rocco!!

Elise and Jerome - "Tanzania Safari, nous recommandons vivement Safari Crew"

Safari – Jan’19

(lake ManyaraNgorongoro, Hadzabe bushmen, SerengetiZanzibar)

 

Nous avons choisi Safari Crew Tanzanie pour notre voyage en janvier 2019, et nous ne regrettons pas
Rocco nous a organisé notre périple personnalisé car nous avions des exigeances, et tout s est deroulé à la perfection
Y compris l’extension pour Zanzibar, avec sa location de voiture , vol et activités
Tito , notre guide nous a encadré avec beaucoup de professionnalisme et de discretion, il parle un Français parfait , et possede une forte experience animale
D ailleurs petit clin d oeil , il imite tres bien les cris des animaux de la savane, Merci encore à lui
Nous avions opté pour un safari privé, tout en beneficiant d un grand 4×4 pour nous seuls
Les activités sont tres interressantes , notamment la matinée de chasse avec les bushmans
Pour resumer, nous recommandons vivement Safari Crew, qui s occupera de tout , et surtout tout ce que vous souhaitez, toujours à l ecoute et toujours reactif
Merci encore mille fois à Rocco et notre guide Tito

Andrea - "on the roof of Africa... superb organizing"

January 2019

mt. Kilimanjaro

Vedo solo recensioni per i safari, ma Safari Crew organizza anche trekking sul Kilimanjaro. Nel mio caso dal 20 al 29 gennaio dalla via Machame (tramite il tour operator Earth Viaggi). L’organizzazione del trekking è stata impeccabile e la salita è andata benissimo. Oltre che dalla bellezza della montagna, sono rimasto impressionato dalla competenza della guida Goodluck Charles, una vera enciclopedia vivente. Preparatissimo su tutti gli aspetti della salita, fauna, flora, storia della Tanzania, storia del parco.

Un’ottima compagnia oltre che un’ottima guida, con un team eccellente alle sue dipendenze.

angieUmbria - "Tanzania the most authentic Africa"

Safari and Zanzibar – Sep’18

(lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Natron, Tarangire e Zanzibar)

 

Desidero continuare questa serie di ottime recensioni su Safari Crew, il suo titolare Rocco e la fantastica guida Naftal. Consiglio di aggiungere il Lago Natron al giro classico, perché è il luogo dove mi sono sentita veramente vicina all’Africa più autentica, oltre al panorama stupendo, e di seguire le indicazioni di Rocco, scegliendo Villa Kiva a Matemwe, Zanzibar, per coronare questa bella esperienza con una vera … ciliegina sulla torta.

Luelina - "the journey of dreams"

Da Africa dipendente, ho chiesto a Safari Crew un viaggio ‘diverso’ dai soliti, splendidi, safari… volevo altro, molto altro… Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Tarangire.. non erano sufficienti, seppure sognati da sempre e goduti nei documentari. Volevo occhi da incrociare e sorrisi da condividere ma, soprattutto, storie da ascoltare.

E, attenti alle mie richieste, Safari Crew ha saputo costruire un viaggio spedizione su ‘misura’ dei miei sogni: e dunque tribù da sempre sognate, quali i Masai (ma non quelli non ‘turistici’… bensì quelli che ti sorridono se giochi un po’ con loro, e baratti le tue storie con le loro) e tribù le cui tradizioni si perdono nei tempi antichi…. gli Hadzabe e la loro caccia, i Datoga e le loro storie di fuoco e frecce, i Chagga e le loro caverne ove nascondersi per salvarsi dall’invasione Masai… e poi paesaggi difficili da dimenticare, il lunare Lago Natron, il verdissimo e profumato di caffè Kilimanjaro… e villaggi, tanti piccoli, a volte poverissimi e sicuramente sperduti villaggi, ove bambini allegri hanno giocato con me e mio figlio e donne, prima timide e poi complici, hanno raccontato le loro storie e condiviso gli abbracci.

Due ringraziamenti speciali.
Il primo va a Rocco Lastella, che mi ha fatto partecipe, con delicatezza, del progetto che Safari Crew sostiene ad Arusha: trascorrere qualche ora al Faraja Center for young women development (un istituto che aiuta giovani ragazze madri vittime di human traffiking, raping e violenze domestiche, assieme ai loro bambini) è stato davvero emozionate ed indimenticabile.
Il secondo va a Naftal Zakayo, la mia guida, occhio di falco e sorriso allegro, che mi ha accompagnato nei safari più spettacolari africani mai vissuti e fatto vivere esperienze divertenti, nella savana piuttosto che davanti ad una tazza di AfriKaffè!
Grazie, Safari Crew Tanzania… alla prossima… Inshallah!

Oliver - "The result was a perfectly tailor-made safari"

We have just come back from a fantastic week spent in Tanzania.

We had a similar experience last year (same time, end of January) for 12 days when we visited Manyara, Tarangire,
Ngorongoro and Serengeti and Western Kilimanjaro and we had so much fun that we decided to come back again, to visit Lake Eyasi and to go back to the Serengeti, simply the best park I’ve hever been to.

Lake Eyasi is an incredible place, out of time. It is home to the Hadzabe people, the survivors of a civilization that knows nothing of agriculture, livestock, pottery, and metals. They live by hunting with bows and arrows, and gathering wild berries and fruits. They are the last heirs of the homines sapientes who took their first steps right here, along the Rift Valley, about 200,000 years ago.

The young men of the tribe were sitting around the fire, warming up themselves before the morning hunt. They wore colourful beads, baboon skins and were passing each other a pipe made of animal bone in which they smoked spontaneous weed. All in a sudden they stood up, the blond, skinny dogs followed them immediately: the hunt was on. This is all authentic not staged for tourist purposes, it was all real. Meeting the Hadzabe has been the kind of experience that I desperately was hoping my kids would have had in Africa.

The Serengeti ecosystem is, between January and March, simply the best place to be: the plains between Seronera Valley (central Serengeti) and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area become the scene of “the greatest show on earth”: 2,000,000 ungulates congregate in this area, the savannah is covered by wildebeest and zebra as far as the eye can see, it is calving season and the newborns attract many predators who cannot wait to feast on them. We spent 2 nights at Kati Kati Camp in central Serengeti and 2 nights at Mbugani Camp near Lake Ndutu, in the north-eastern sector of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area which is actually part of the Serengeti.

Seeing the Serengeti migration is just the best you can expect from your safari.

After 4 amazing nights spent in the Serengeti we went back to Karatu, the morning after we were back to Arusha.

The tour operator we chose for our safari was simply perfect. Having travelled with them last year we had no doubt about which safari company to book through: Safari Crew Tanzania, and once again they proved to be extremely professional and great value for money. I had previous experiences with the upscale companies you hear of with fancy brochures and websites that regularly do business in Europe and the U.S. and I can tell that with Safari Crew Tanzania you can get a more personalized service at a much lower price.
Our expectations were definitely high after last year’s experience but were fully satisfied. We cannot thank them enough.

Everything went like clockwork, thanks to Robert, one of the owners of Safari Crew Tanzania. He worked closely with us to understand what we wanted and offered us several
options in terms of itinerary, accommodation and budget. The result was a perfectly tailor-made safari for our family.

Just like last year, we had the pleasure to be accompanied by Hubert, a gentleman in his 50’s with 25 years spent on the wheel. He was able to spot things beyond the scope of the human eye, he was knowledgable about animal behavior, extremely kind to our children, very conscientious driver and turned to be a great travel companion. His ability to position the jeep for prime location happened time and time again. His ability to find the animals and read their direction was incredible.

Overall, a fantastic trip. We hope to be back again next year.
