Safari Tanzania
Jan 2020 • Family
My parents and I went on the 6 day 5 night safari with John as our guide. We had the most amazing time, with three nights in accomodation (which was amazing and far nicer than we had expected) and two nights ‘camping’. The camping was in tents which were more like houses with full sized bed and shower/toilet etc. When camping we had wild animals outside our tent at night which was an incredible experience yet we all felt safe.

John was such an amazing guide- he was able to answer every question we threw at him. He also went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and ensure we felt safe and happy. He even made sure we saw the big five!

Would definitely recommend this tour! The team was professional and reliable and we had the best time!

Tanzania Retreat
Apr 2019 • Friends
The guides for our yoga retreat and safari were outstanding. Not only did they show us Manyara National Park, The Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater Reserve, they ensured that we saw all the animals, the tribes and the culture of their country. They embodied the heart and soul of Tanzania, making hours of driving educational and fun. If you are considering a safari in Tanzania or Kenya, call these amazing folks. You will not be disappointed.

What a magical experience from arrival to departure! I can’t make enough positive comments about my experience in
Tanzania with Leadwood Expeditions. At very short notice, the evening before actually, they went out of their way to arrange a tour that I wanted to do that had not been included in the itinerary. What a team! The drivers/guides had an uncanny ability to find the animals and sights that every person has gone on safari to see, and they do it with class, easily negotiating a line between stopping long enough for those who want to watch a specific animal for hours , and those who want to move on to see other sights.
Their friendliness and attention to detail were outstanding and I would certainly recommend them to anyone considering an African safari.

Tanzania's surprise
Jan 2019 • Couples
I had expected to be looking into the distance through binoculars, spying a few animals. In reality we were close enough to hear them breathe, to watch them blocking our way with their grazing....it was the most extraordinarily beautiful experience. Our guide and driver, John, was helpful, informed and available. I loved every minute in Tanzania.
