A guaranteed experience of a lifetime! The organization of our 6-days Safari with Victoria Expeditions was flawless. From the moment we were picked up at Kilimanjaro Int'l Airport and were taken to our hotel in Arusha, the excellent accommodations in (the vicinity of) Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorogoro National Parks, the delicious lunches with cooked food and glasses of wine at the picknick areas, till the drop off at the airport in Kilimanjaro again, everything went well in time and according to the itinerary. Our utmost gratitude goes to our driver/guide Samir. He has good save driving skills, a perfect knowledge of the nations culture and wildlife in general, and a perfect overview of the area to get you to the best spot to see an abundance of animals. He managed to see a lioness vs gazelle situation first and thus gave us the unique front row view of a chase from the beginning till the end right in front of our jeep. Absolutely amazing. We recommend Samir as a driver/guide. Hakuna matata

Superb safari! A well planned, well executed 8 day experience, with a customized program across Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and the Ngorongoro crater. The management team of the operator were very supportive and easily reachable both before and during the 8 day Safari. For a good safari the tour guide who looks after you and drives the 4x4 is essential, and Mr Wilson was simply superb at his job, with deep knowledge of animals, flora and fauna, the country, super kind to our family showing us an amazing experience while keeping us safe. I high recommend both the operator soul of Tanzania and Mr Wilson as an excellent guide.

Top Notch Safari Company We decided last minute for a safari and booked with Victoria Expeditions on very short notice (1 week! ) They handled our request very quickly and professionally, tailoring the experience for us to perfection. Everything was simple to set up, in a safe and organized manner. The safari itself was wonderful. Our guide Joseph made sure that we never lacked anything, and we managed to see everything we wanted. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we got excellent viewing angles and great photo opportunities! He put a lot of effort into the game drives and the whole experience, we could not have asked for more. We felt very Well taken care of with him. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience with a great guide, can warmly recommend to everyone

Excellent safari We took the 5-day best of mid-range Northern circuit. Unlike most travellers we first thought of going on a safari only two weeks before it actually happened. The Victoria expeditions team was really helpful in arranging our trip on such short notice with constant communication. Our trip with our guide Shafino was just marvelous. Thanks to him we have been able to see the big 9 and not only from the distance but mostly just a few meters apart. Looking a leopard or a lion in the eye, watching cheetahs eat their prey is a memory we will never forget

Serengeti Nationalpark Safari I had an amazing two days and one night camping. The cook and our guide were very good at English and made the experience even better. We saw all the big cats and many other animals. The camping side is alright. We got up early to see the sunrise which was definitely worth it. Absolutely worth the money

I am sure they will meet your expectations with professional mountain trekking advice and support. I am from Hong Kong. I joined the Mount Kilimanjaro Treking and Safari in 2008. For the past 10 years, I had introduced three groups from Hong Kong and Two groups from Mainland China to join the same events. The last group reached the summit in Sep 2019. All of us were very happy with the arrangements, accommodations and experienced mountain trekking leaderships. Subira, the co-ordinator, always gave us quick responses in quotation, trip details and "what to prepare". I still get in touch with Samuel (the Manager). When the COVID-19 is over, will definitely help to arrange my hiking/trekking friends to join the Africa Highest Mountain Summit Trekking again. I am sure they will meet your expectations with professional mountain trekking advice and support.
