It was 5 days safari: Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti (2 days) and Ngorongoro.
Thanks to our guide Maulidi we were lucky to see all of Big 5! Lions eating zebra, lions couple and lion female with 3 kittens. Elephants, giraffes, impalas, gnus, serval and caracal cat, hippos, different types of birds (which Maulidi has shown us in the book). And thanks to his eagle eyes we even got a chance to see rhinos in Ngorongoro! In Serengeti we saw leopard and were waiting for 1 hour while he changed pose to make wonderful photos and videos.
Besides, Maulidi explained us animal habits and gave very useful advices when it is better to wait to make nice pictures.
Brighton from Savannah Explorers prepared nice and comfortable itinerary with lovely accommodation (especially Maramboi Marera Lodge and Serena Serengeti Lodge).
So i can whole heartedly recommend not only choose Savannah Explorers but also ask Maulidi to be your guide.

This is my 3rd safari, and the best of them all as far as diversity of wildlife, national parks covered (Arusha, Tarangire, Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Eyasi), and overall experience. It was made possible by Albert (booking arrangements) and James Zakaria, our safari guide and expert. However, best for me was that they were able to cater to my gluten-free needs, which was amazing in itself. People who are gluten sensitive are hesitant to travel for fear of no 'safe' foods available, but the chefs in both lodges/camps (Marera View Lodge and Bush Camp) went out of their way to make sure that my food choices were gluten free. Without everyone's help on this front, I wouldn't have been able to experience this remarkable adventure.

We spent 3 days at Marera view lodge to explore Tarangire park, ngorongoro crater and manyara lake. Excellent service and reasonable price with savannah explorer and also with our guide Maulidi Hussein who is an expert in founding wild animals. The agency make an extra by visiting the Arusha market with a company guide for our best pleasure. We recommande.

My partner and I, along with a friend did a 5-day private mid-range safari with Savannah Explorers this past November. We visited the following parks: Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. We stayed at Marera View Lodge (2 nights) and a bush camp in the Serengeti (2 nights). I've broken down my review into sections.

Accommodations & Food:
I cannot begin to express how blown away we were with the entire experience. The service, food and accommodations were exceptional...especially considering we paid for a mid-range package. The Marera View Lodge was stunning and felt brand new. It was sparkling clean, well appointed, had comfy beds, spacious rooms and great showers. The staff were so friendly and helpful. And the food was absolutely delicious!

I'm pleased to say I can say all the same about the bush camp. I didn't really know what to expect in that regard, but upon arrival we were shocked (in the best way possible). While the tents do have canvas sides,
they are much more like cabins than tents. They have wrap around decks, wood floors, hot showers, and amazingly comfortable beds. It felt more like staying at an eco-hotel than staying in a tent and we were not mad about it. On top of that, the staff was outstanding and served some of the best meals of our entire trip.

Our boxed lunches everyday were basic but we never went hungry. They usually consisted of some fruit, chicken and/or pasta, a juice box, some savory baked goods and then some sweet baked goods. If you're watching your carbs, you may want to let them know before hand. We were in full blown vacation mode, so were happy with all the different types of baked goods we got to try.

Guide & Game Drive:
Our guide Isaack was the best! He was prompt, friendly, a deft driver and was always doing his best to find animals for us. He happily answered all our questions and helped educate on us on the animals and ecosystem. With his knowledge and keen eye, we were lucky enough to see all of the Big 5 during our trip. Considering how much time you spend with your guide, we were grateful to have such a professional. The vehicle itself was spacious, clean and well maintained. It was always stocked with cold waters and had outlets in case devises needed to charged throughout the day. Our vehicle had 6 seats and there were only 3 of us plus Isaack, so we were happy to not be packed in like sardines like other tours.

Communication & Value:
We had reached out to several other tour companies for quotes before deciding to go with Savannah Explorers. They were always so prompt with their responses and patient while waiting for us to make our decision. When it came to pricing, they were not the cheapest but were nowhere near the most expensive either. They had great reviews and were so on top of their communications, that we felt confident going with them. We paid roughly $1400 USD each for a 3 person 5-day private mid-range safari. Now having completed our safari, I can say that this was without a doubt an incredible value and we couldn't be happier we went them.

The only issue we had during our entire experience was with our final payment. We paid the 30% deposit via bank transfer when we booked the trip and thought we could pay the remaining balance with credit card or via bank transfer upon arrival. Unfortunately, there must have been a miscommunication because they expected it to be paid in cash. This caused us some stress because it's quite difficult to pull out that much cash (~$3k USD) in Tanzania. Ultimately we were able to get it sorted by paying a certain amount in cash and then scheduling another bank transfer for the remaining balance. My advice would be to double check with them on how the final payment will be made, so you don't run into the same problem we did.

Overall:
This was a trip of a lifetime! As three mid-30's adventurers who have done a fair share of globe trotting, we all concluded that this was the best trip we've had to date. Safari was a bucket list item for us, so we had high expectations and Savannah Explorers over delivered. I would recommend them to anyone looking to do safari in Tanzania and would happily book with them again if given the chance.
