We were amazed by all that we saw and experienced during the safari. We were very lucky to see the “big five“ and to preview the jungle scenes.
We were received in very great accommodations, all comfort in the middle of the savannah.
Our guide Ombeni is really great, experienced, very helpful and super friendly.
It was truly a dream experience to be repeated ! 😁👏🏻👏🏻

My partner and I decided to go on a trip to Tanzania for our anniversary in May 2018. I did a great deal of research into a number of Safari companies and ranked companies using the following criteria
- Positive reviews: We used Trip Advisor and two other sites (allsafari.com and safaribooking.com) to establish which companies had the best feedback regarding their service. Many safari companies in Tanzania are highly rated so I contacted all of them to see what services they could provide
- Value for money: This was both qualitative and quantitative. I looked at the standard of the individual accommodation and services and the cost per day of the safari.
- Locally owned: Gosheni is the only company in the top 5 safari providers in Arusha that is locally owned which we thought was important.
- Experience in the industry

We decided to go with Gosheni as they provided personalised service and the best value for money of all the companies I contacted. We took an 8 day safari around the Northern Parks, staying in mid-luxury accommodation throughout. Not only were Gosheni able to provide mid-luxury accommodation at the same price other companies were quoting for basic accommodation but the safari was also a private safari with our own guide and vehicle. This meant that we could customize where we went within the park and what time we started, which was really nice. We opted for picnic lunches so that we could drive further during the day. All vehicles have their own set of picnic tables and chairs so you get a private picnic in the bush, which to my knowledge no other company does.

What strikes me as unique about the company is that because it was started by Peter Robert (a former game guide) they are very aware of what makes for an excellent safari and tailor their trips accordingly. From the outset Peter assured me that they have new vehicles in good condition and the vehicle that we were in was spacious, clean and had been for a service just before the trip. This meant that there were no mechanical issues at any point in the safari, despite us driving on some more arduous roads that caused other vehicles difficulty. They provide unlimited water/cool drinks, tea/coffee and snacks along the way, where many companies will provide limited drinking water only. There was also wine available and on one of the days we got to see the Serengeti sunset from atop a wonderful viewing point with wine in hand. The accommodation was chosen to provide a wide variety of different environments and allowed us to experience both comfort and authenticity.

Lastly, a good guide makes all the difference on a safari and we were lucky to have a highly experience guide by the name of Fidelis. We were able to see amazing animals including tree climbing lions on multiple occasions, a male lion with a kill, multiple hyena with a kill, leopard with a kill and then the same leopard on a successful hunt, cheetah on a kill and the wildebeest migration. Fidelis was always aware of what we wanted to see and how to position the vehicle for the best view. He also helped other guides on multiple occasions, changing a vehicle’s tyre on the steep roads up the ridge of the Ngorongoro crater and advising another guide about how to view the migration when their pop up roof got stuck down. His relaxed attitude made us feel comfortable and we appreciated the respect he showed to his environment and the people around him. We were genuinely impressed with the service we received from Gosheni safaris and could not recommend it highly enough.

I cannot recommend Gosheni Safaris enough! Right from the start, Pendo was extremely helpful, patient, and willing to go above and beyond. She was always available to cater to our requests, swift in her responses, and in the end created a package that was affordable and perfectly customised to our needs.

And then there was Laban - our tour guide. One of the best and most gentle souls we met during our trip to Tanzania. His positive attitude, superior knowledge, and experience left us in awe - with a much deeper understanding of the local culture, flora, and fauna. Laban was extremely accommodating, a great navigator, and an extremely enjoyable safari companion.

Thank you, Gosheni Safaris, and Peter - you surely have built an amazing team and left us with an experience we will cherish for the rest of our lives. If you're reading this review, don't hesitate - every penny will be well spent and worth it with the Gosheni team.

Parks:

Every single place we visited was interesting (Tarangire National Park, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, lake Manyara), but if I have to to pick two out of four, I would choose Serengeti, and Nguru Crate.

Serengeti... probably not necessary to explain why - enormous park (15000 Sq km) mostly flat land with a visibility that starts to really appeal on you on the first hour you enter it and once you get used to the strange half-desert view around you. All sorts of wild life which is easy to spot due to the flat savanna. As for Ngorongoro crate - much smaller yet super interesting, in terms of climate (from mountain at the rim to sub-tropical at the bottom of the crater). Also all sorts of wild life, including Rhinocerous (we were lucky to spot three!!).

Driver guide:

Regarding our driver guide - Ombeni: I can VERY VERY HIGHLY recommend this guy. This driver was the major contributor to our great experience in Tanganika:
- Very good English
- Very flexible
- Feels the "temperature" in the vehicle and adjusts. - Always there, helpful but not getting in your way

My feeling is, your driver guide is The Most Important Person during you safari, as you are spending 8+ hours with him/her and he can make it or break so to say in terms of your experience in Tanganika.

So if you go on a safari in Tanzania with Gosheni, ask for *Ombeni* to be your guide. REALLY. Just can't recommend this guy highly enough.

Hotels:

In terms of places where we stayed overnight, two really stood out from the rest:
- Ngorongoro Serena Lodge: Great place. Gorgeous view to the crater. Mountain climate. Very blanced - rooms not too big, not too small, very clean; staff invisible but always there, cleaning and re-loading the mini-bar. Good meals, nice lobby bar and restaurant;
- Acacia Serengeti Camps: considering that it's in the middle of the park, this place is luxury. In fact too luxury for the location if you ask me (who in their right mind takes a jacuzzi in the middle of the park where water is scarce if you ask me?). The tent is very spacious, as I said even luxury, yet you still can hear the animals like two meters from your bed outside feeding on the grass during the night. During the day you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the park from the veranda of the "tent" (inside it is a bit more like a studio). Also, very friendly, helpful staff.

Safari Company:

Very responsive staff. Pendo (our main contact person from Gosheni Safaris) was like 24/7 on WhatsApp, addressing all our questions and concerns. Company is very flexible and helpful, offered multiple options in terms of where to stay and for how long so we get the feeling we are arranging the trip ourselves.

Also, we got a new vehicle from them, so can't complain about that either!

We had the wonderful opportunity to complete a 7 day safari with Gosheni. The experience was amazing. Our guide and driver Gabriel was more than that. He was like a friend. He was stupendous.

We were able to accomplish all our safari goals. I wanted to see part of the wilderbeest migration as well as the Big Five. We saw it all. Gabriel did everything possible for us to be able to reach our goal.

I was impressed with the attention to detail provided by Gosheni. It was great to have sit down lunches on actual china, while on safari while others were eating from lunch boxes.

We stayed at the Acacia Luxury Camps. WOW! It was much better than I expected. My daughter and I were happy and impressed. The food was amazing. We were very well fed. The staff was incredible as well.

This was a trip of a lifetime that would not have been possible without Gosheni Safari. Everything went as planned. They exceeded my expectations. strongly recommended them for any future safaris or any other tours.

If there was a sixth star, Gosheni would have it. This Safari tour was by far the most epic and luxurious adventure I have been on. I traveled to Tanzania with three of my best friends, we’re all big travelers and adventurers, but usually do more low-fi camping/frugal world traveling. This tour was worth ever cent. We did tons of research beforehand on different companies, comparing many in this region, and Gosheni was the clear winner after a bit of sleuthing. When we arrived and started touring we immediately proved ourselves right. In terms of overall value and transparency of the costs, as well as their care for our experience and take away of the trip, they took the cake. Their level of professionalism, kindness, and knowledge is astounding.

Our guide William was extraordinary. Beyond his expansive knowledge of the animals and nature all around, his excitement and fervor for finding them with us made it all the more fun. He’s been guiding for over 14 years, and he approaches every day like a new adventure. His attitude toward his work and life was inspiring. He is funny, sweet and great to be around.
We were like a family wandering in the wild. We struck a great balance of hakunamatata vacation mode and finding the punctuality of being up and out to be where we needed to see many animals and the great migration. I can’t believe the amount of different animals we saw out there.

Belinda was fabulous in helping us organize what we should see and how to set the path for our trip. We were so well taken care of, and I couldn’t imagine putting together an itinerary for all the places we visited and how much we saw. We had loads of questions while we were planning and she was very patient and in depth with her responses before we even booked with Gosheni.

The touring vehicle was a very comfortable Toyota Land-cruiser. Considering we basically lived in it for 7 days, it was the adventure car of our dreams. It felt super safe, and the seats were comfy, even when we were off-roading and gosling about. Plus there was a fridge in the car we could put snacks and keeps waters cold. William is an excellent driver through this terrain. I’ve done a bit of off roading in the states with my partner and know how throttling it can feel - he made us feel completely at ease and was always checkin in on our comfort levels and if we needed anything.

The accommodations and “camping” exceeded my expectations of luxury. That being said, camping is not quite the right word for our palatial dwellings in the middle of Tanzanian wilderness. Hot showers and baths, running water and toilets in each tent. Incredibly plush beds and delicious hot meals, surrounded by beautiful views at every turn. The staff at every camp was so attentive and kind and wouldn’t let us lift a finger. During safari, the food was just wonderful. We had gorgeous, multi-course picnics every day with table clothes, wine and fresh juice to boot. Two of us are vegetarian and they were excellent about catering to all of our individual edible desires.

This is by far the trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend you afford yourself the the distinct privilege of going with Gosheni, and William being your guide.

First time to Africa, I didn’t expect it to be that great! Thanks to our tour guide William , he’s really experienced and kind, not only because he took us to see the big 5 and gave us many introductions, but also he’s caring for everyone in the group. In a word , it’s really worth a visit!!

We just got back from a 7-day safari starting from Arusha. We spent 2 days each in Ngorongoro, central, and northern Serengeti migration camps. My family and I had an incredible experience! Not only did we get to see the big 5 (yes, including the black rhino) during our time, but also really enjoyed all of our accommodation, food, and internal transit. The lodges and camps were really incredible, both from a location, convenience, and comfort perspective. William, who was our guide from the moment we landed Kilimanjaro was very accommodating, hospitable, and flexible / attentive to the group's needs / requests. All in, it was an awesome experience!

This is my second trip to Africa and I had a bucket list of animals I really wanted to see. Ephraim was our guide and he was truly amazing! From day one we saw animals I had only seen and read about and we were amazed. We saw tree climbing lions, a cheetah chase down and kill a prey, a lion with a new kill And other incredible things that you can only see in Africa. Ephraim was constantly talking to other vehicles trying to find the best animals and he was 100% successful. I am already planning to come back and bring my entire family for this amazing experience, and I will be doing that only with Ephraim and Gosheni Tours. Five stars all the way!

We just completed a 7 day safari with Gosheni and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The entire experience was fabulous. Due to our very experienced guide, Azaria, we were able to view some really unique wildlife activity. There is nothing like having a cheetah walk 20 feet from your vehicle for 10 minutes while looking for prey. Gosheni is a very well run operation. From booking our trip to final drop off at the airport everything was first class. Verah answered all of my emails quickly and thoroughly. Our guide was at the airport to meet us. The accommodations and food at every stop was top notch. Our vehicle was clean, comfortable and in good running condition. And our guide went out of his way to provide us with a memorable experience. I will book Gosheni again and I highly recommend them to anyone else going to Tanzania or Kenya.
