My father and I went on Mochame Road to Kilimanjaro where we spend 7 days. We made it all the way to the summit and it’s was absolutely unbelievable experience. Would like to say thank you to entire team. Our porters, cook Thomas, support staff and guide Solomon. Without you it’s wouldn’t be possible to make it all the way to the summit. Thank you Philip for all your organizing efforts.

Manyara Travel club and Climbing was absolutely incredible. They were professional, on time, and provided impeccable service throughout our entire trip to Tanzania. And when I say entire trip I mean as soon as we walked out the doors of Kilimanjaro Airport to start our 5 day adventure to making sure we got through security at Kilimanjaro Airport to head back home.
When we met the manger at our first lodge he said our guide/driver, William was one of the best. He wasn’t kidding! We saw 4/5 big five on our first day in Tarangire National Park. William was so knowledgeable and knew all the good spots to look for wildlife and viewpoints for photo opportunities. He even stopped on our way to Lake Manyara and picked us up some local bananas to try. William made our trip! I even told him as we parted ways at Lake Manyara Airport on our way to Serengeti that he made our trip so incredible and that if I was going home that day I would be so happy. Congratulations Manyara Travel club and Climbing !!.

This tour operators will outsource your safari, change the itinerary before and during the trip, cheap out everything from accommodation and transport.
The complete trip report
I just finished my 2 weeks trip in tanzania and i am writing a trip report as promised.

I booked a 14 days safari for 3360 dollars with manyara travel club and climbing ltd. They changed the itinerary about a week before the trip to 6days hike in usambara, 6 days safari and 1 day canoeing in arusha and i agree with that without asking any question.

Before arrival, i have been told that i have to paid to the safari driver and cook 40 dollars per day as tipping.

After arrival they charged me 560 dollars in term of tipping, totally chargwd 3920 dollars for the trip.

I end up having a 5 days group safari , 6 days hiking in usambara and 1 day canoeing in lake dulute.

Here is my itinerary after arrival:

For usambara hiking i am hiking solo with Philips Samwel Lulinda, the owner of this tour operators.

Day 1 of arrival i am living in Kutetere Motel.

Day 2 i am being transferred to lushoto to start hiking in usambara with public transport to Mombo and transferred by private car to lushoto.

Day 3-5 i am hiking from lushoto to lokozi and rangwi, finally arrived to mombo.

For the accommodation in usambara i remember i lived in Kakakuona hotel at lushoto for first day, living in Rangwi Sisters guesthouse and living in Mambo View Point lodge.

Day 6 i am being transfer back to lushoto by private car.

Day 7 i am being transfer to mombo with pirvate car and transfer to Arusha with pulic bus staying at kutetere motel.

For safari, i believed that i was outsourced to two company, Avocet tour and traveling Africa.

In first 4 days i joined a grouped safari with 16 people.

Day 8 Safari at Tarangire and living at kizumba campaite.

Day 9 Transfer to Serengeti and living at public campsite.

Day 10 Safari at Serengeti and living at public campsite in Ngorongoro.

Day 11 Safari in Ngorongoro carter and living at kizumba campsite.

Day 12 i was joining other group of 6 people for safari in manyara and being transferred to Arusha by travel africa and living in kutetere motel.

Day 13 i was canoeing in lake dulute, going to massi market and central market to buy souvenir.

Day 14 i was being transferred to airport.

All the accommodation, transfer,eating are included in the package.

I only found out this tour operators is fishy after being told by the safari driver tipping is optional and 560 dollars for tipping is not normal and started asking questions on this forum.

Day of safari also decreased for 1 day compared the itinerary he said me before arrival.

Since everything is paid and i only found out in the middle of thw trip, i can do nothing with it and i have no luck having the so call 'tipping' back after talking with Philips, the owner of this company.

I ended up paying 3920 dollars for 5 days grouped safari outsourced to other company, 6 days usambara hiking and 1 day canoeing in lake dulute.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to book any kind of trip with manyara travel club and climbing ltd because this tour operators will

1. Change your itinerary before and during the trip to overcharged you.

2. Scam you for money in term of tipping.

3. Low quality of services by cheaping everything from accommodation and transportation.

4. Outsource your safari trip

It is a shame for me falling into this kind of tourists trap, for people planning a trip to tanzania, please do all of the homework before you booked with a tour operator. Found a tour operators with fair price, good service and good reputation and will not outsource your safari trip.

I believe that i was being scamed for nearly 1500 dollars in this trip by comparing the offer with other tour operators, all i can do now is warning people DO NOT BOOK ANY KIND OF TRIP WITH MANYARA TRAVEL CLUB AND CLIMING LTD. It is a very unethical and unprofessional tour operators provided low quality of services.

Hello my friend LEUNG from HONGKONG CHINA . Thanks for your opinion. We as a team of Manyara Travel Club and Climbing we sadly receive your review because we did not expect this from you. We did our best to offer you the good experience according to our agreement, as you were alone it was very expensive for you to book private safari hence you agreed to book a BUDGET joining safari. Second. Before you came you asked about tip and we agreed on paying 40 usd per day and in total for14 days is equal to 560 which will be shared among the team of tour guide, cook and driver but we wonder at the end of the trip you asked about TIP REFUND which brought all the argument which is not right. All in all in our tour offers we have 3 categories 1. budge safari , 2.mid range safari and 3. luxury safari and you paid for a budget safari 240 usd per day equals to 3360 usd for 14 days and then you demanded luxury service which is not possible and because of this you are complaining and try to destroy our good image and our reputation we had for many years as seen on reviews from our past customers , TOTAL AMOUNT PAID INCLUDING TIPS 3920 USD FOR 14 DAYS FULL BOARD. FROM THE AMOUNT ABOVE WE INCLUDED THE FOLLOWING SERVICES. 1.Pick up from the airport to the hotel 2.Accommodation ,breakfast,lunch and dinner for 14 days. 3. Transfer to Usambara and HIKING f (forest fees, community charges ,and transport ) total 6 days. 4. Joining budget Safari for 5 days( Tarangire,Ngorongoro crater,Serengeti and Lake manyara n.parks 5.Canoeing and walking tour on lake Duruti (included park fee,canoeing guide,lunch) 6.Transfer from hotel KUTETERE ( wifi on board) to the air port ALL IN ALL YOU COMPLAIN BECAUSE OF THE TIP WHICH YOU PAID BY YOURSELF ON FIRST DAY WITHOUT BEING FORCED AND AT THE END YOU WANTED IT BACK AFTER HAVING SPENT ALL OF YOUR MONEY , 40 USD PER DAYS FOR THE TEAM IS REASONABLE AND OTHERS PAYS EVEN MORE AFTER ENJOYING THE SERVICE. OUR BELOVED CUSTOMERS YOU ARE MUCH WELCOME AND TRY OUR GOOD SERVICES

Manyara tours has to be one of the best tour operator to find in Tanzania. There motto is to make all your time and money be worth for it. Their team is well experienced, knowledgeable and humble throughout your journey.
I booked 10 days tour for Tanzania, in which I had to do Mt Kilimanjaro Expedition along with wildlife safari. They prepared a very comprehensive itinerary for me so that I could cover Tanzania (Mt Kilimanjaro, DAR, Moshi, Arusha and Safari) in most economical way. Mt Kilimanjaro (Machame route) was cherry on the top - and I did Solo but they did not charge anything extra.

Very much recommended because:
1. Experienced and Good Local Connection - Things are arranged in a jiffy
2. Economical - Very competitive with quality services

Make your money count with them ! :)
