An unforgettable group safari with Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris

Written by: Danielle Lameck on 16 November 2023

Our friends and us recently embarked on an safari adventure with Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris, Tanzania and I must say it was an experience we will cherish forever. Initially, I had reservations about taking our children on a safari, but Alex from Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris assured me that could tailor the experience for our group, and he delivered on that promise in the most spectacular way.

From the beginning the trip was seamlessly organized and were warmly welcomed by the Kilimanjaro classic safari's team. Alex and his team went out of their way to ensure that our group felt comfortable and excited about the journey ahead.

Uncle Thomas our safari guide and driver was the real star of our adventure. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the wild but also had a unique ability to engage and entertain to ensuring we witnessed the Big five was truly remarkable. The kids absolutely adored him, and so did we.

The highlight, of course, was the wildlife, Thomas expertise and keen sense of the animal's behaviors ensured that we had unforgettable encounters with the Big five. From majestic lions and elephants to elusive leopard, we saw them all thanks to Thomas dedication.

The evening around the campfire, sharing stories and laughter, added an extra layer of magic to the experience. The Kilimanjaro classic safari's team made us feel lie we were part of their extended family, and their warmth and friendliness were truly appreciated.

In conclusion, Our group safari with Kilimanjaro classic safari's exceeded all our expectation. It was an educational, exciting and immersive experience that catered perfectly to our children's needs while offering a deep connection to the wonders of the natural world. I wholehearted recommend Kilimanjaro classic safari's to anyone seeking the best safari experience in Tanzania. We already looking forward to our adventure with them. Thanks Kilimanjaro classic safari's, for making our group safari come true.

My wife and I had the most wonderful 4 days visiting the above parks. From the initial contact with Alex who arranged this bespoke trip, to Thomas our amazing guide and driver for the 4 days, everything was memorable and perfect!
We saw all the big 5 (and close up!) and lots more! Thomas was knowledgeable, very experienced, great driver, caring, flexible and funny!!! The accommodation recommended for our budget and food exceeded our exceptions!

Highly recommend this company! Asante Sana, Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris, we will never forget our trip!
