We learned about Earthlife from our relatives which they highly acclaimed after their visit to Tanzania last year. Having been in thorough correspondence with Deo last fall, we settled on 13 days plan whereof 8 days were in Safari and 5 days in Zanzibar. The safari which covered Arusha national park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire national park was beyond our expectations. Our safari guide Agrey seemed to have extraordinary skill to spot the animals in the
field. He was very knowledgeable and quite able to convey his knowledge to us.

The migration had started and it was very impressive to see tenths of thousands Wildebeest and Zebras walking along the grassland, while the predators were lurking along the heard waiting for their opportunities. During our trip we were able to see all the five big, including the Black Rhinoceros plus several other animals and some of them very rare to see at all, like Cheetah, Blat Eared Fox, Aardwolf, Colobus Monkey and Leopard to name a few . The "tents" and lodges were wonderful, and the food was tasty and plentiful.

In Zansibar we stayed at a five star hotel at the beach. Its facilities and services were at least in accordance with the number of stars

Our visit was during the low season, but we enjoyed very good weather most of the time and a prime time of the wildlife. We highly recommend Earthlive and our thanks to Agrey who worked tirelessly to assist us in the safari and made our trip enjoyable and fulfilling.

When we set out to find a safari operator we wanted a Tanzanian company rather than someone in places like London or New York. We sent our request, with some specific requirements, to a number of local companies. Only Deo at Earthlife responded with a proposed safari that heeded our requests. From that point the process of setting up the safari went smoothly, and it was easy to work with Deo via email. When, months later, we had an unexpected change in our departure flight, Deo responded quickly with a changed itinerary. When we arrived we were given a thorough briefing by a member of his staff, which was very helpful.

The safari itself was excellent, in large part because of our driver, Fadhili. He was accommodating throughout and highly skilled at being able to spot the animals when we never would have seen them if by ourselves. It seemed that Fadhili was often the first driver to spot the animals of interest (like two black rhinos together in Ngorongoro) and then we would have the spotting to ourselves until all the other drivers and their vbehicles showed up.

To summarize, Earthlife gave us had a real bucket-list safari and we would highly recommend them.

After spending a great deal of time researching safari operators in Tanzania, we learned of Earthlife Expeditions. We very quickly received a response to our inquiry with multiple itinerary suggestions that fit our wish-list and budget. Communications with Caudence were always prompt and very polite throughout the planning process. She was so accommodating, even with last-minute itinerary changes requested by our group.

We don’t know how we were so lucky but we were paired with the best safari guide known to Africa! Joseph is knowledgeable, passionate, and attentive. He readily shared his wealth of knowledge of nature and wildlife and encouraged us to be active participants in the safari experience. His patience and awareness allowed us to experience things and capture moments other safari-goers missed out on. We discovered an entirely new level of appreciation for nature! Additionally, Joseph went beyond expectations and taught us about Tanzanian culture and language. Overall, his attentiveness to our party was truly beyond comparison and, as a result, our safari experience was better than we could have ever hoped for.

We could go on and on about how great Earthlife Expeditions is! To summarize, working with Deo, Caudence, Angel, and Joseph was a treat. They were polite, accommodating, and enthusiastic. Earthlife is a very reliable and trustworthy company and goes above and beyond for their customers. We can’t wait to plan our next trip with them!!!

We selected Earthlife Expeditions after contacting a number of highly rated safari operators in Tanzania. Only Earthlife provided the itinerary that we were looking for, with the type of accommodations we had asked for and the requested number of nights.

Communications with the owner Deo were prompt and polite. We also contacted a number of previous customers who gave positive feedback.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our safari due to a change in circumstances. In accordance with Earthlife's terms and conditions, a portion of the deposit was transferred back to us within a matter of a few weeks. Trust is a huge aspect of booking directly with an operator based remotely and Earthlife have proved themselves to be reputable and trustworthy.

We will certainly use them in the future.
