Wat onze Klanten zeggen

We zijn net terug van onze Kampeersafari in Tanzania en 5-daags relaxen in Zanzibar. De terugreis verliep zoals gepland zonder tegenslagen.

De kampeersafari was adembenemend en de 5-daagse op Zanzibar verliep vlekkeloos. Het was in zijn geheel een zeer mooie en intense reis. Een stevig bad Afrika.

De organisatie ter plaatse was vlekkeloos en werd door ons zeer gewaardeerd. Steeds stipt op afspraken, flexibel en zorgzaam.

Nogmaals onze hartelijk dank aan jezelf en aan onze gids Salim om de gevolgen van de foute bagageafhandeling door KLM op te vangen en om de impact ervan op onze reis te beperken.

We waren gelukkig om jullie aan onze zijde te hebben.

Wij wensen jullie nog alle succes met de activiteiten in Tanzania.

Beste groeten,

WoW WoW WoW. Ge-wel-di-ge safari.

Zojuist terug gekomen van een fantastische safari in Tanzania, Arusha. Geweldig georganiseerd door African Heart Expeditions. En uitstekend begeleid door onze gids Salim.

Bij African Heart Expeditions, organiseren ze een safari zodanig dat de driver ALLE tijd heeft om welk beest dan ook aanwezig en zichtbaar, ruimschoots te volgen. Met zoveel tijd tot onze beschikking hebben we bijvoorbeeld een chita-kill gezien en het paringsritueel van de leeuwen.

Naast de safari’s hebben ze voor ons ook enkele stammen uitgezocht welke wij hebben mogen bezoeken. Natuurlijk de Maasai en zo mogelijk nog indrukwekkender: de Bushmen. Onvergetelijk!

Ook hebben zij voor ons een mix van lodges en tented camps uitgezocht die volledig aan onze wensen voldeden. Op schitterende lokaties gelegen (Isoitok en Kati Kati en Sopa). Allen erg gastvrij en met zeer vriendelijke bediening.

We bedanken Peter en Liesbeth. Voor een fantastische en onvergetelijke safari in dit prachtige land.

Met de meest vriendelijke groeten, Margo en Louis.

“We took the 6-days lodge safari. The parks are all worth a visit. If you like thousands of birds flying around your head, visit Lake Manyara, Tarangiri is a small, but very beautiful park with a variety of animals. The serengeti is huge, you must have seen it and you can spot many lions there, in Ngorongoro , thousands of wildebeasts graze before your eyes. The guide / driver knows and sees a lot. It never gets boring. Really recommended is Kati Kati camp, in the middle of the Serengeti. This is an real experience, especially when the hyenas passes next to your tent . Lake Burunge Tented Camp is very luxurious and you have a beautiful view on the wide surroundings. Isoitok Tented Camp near Lake Manyara is smaller, but definitely worth it. Very tasteful and cozy decorated and the owner Chris, is very friendly. Too bad we could not stay here a bit longer. The Sopa Lodge in Ngorongoro is quite big and busy. This is rather a hotel. You have a beautiful view on the crater here. We get a lot of information from Peter when we arrived in Arusha. I would recommend this safari to anyone. A truly unforgettable event !!”

“ I recently completed a 14 day safari organised by Peter of African Heart, my fourth, with African Heart and seventh overall in Africa. My friend and I started in Kenya, three parks ,and Tanzania four parks. We had a great time as usual, staying in various types of accommodation, with excellent attention by staff and good food put on the table, the guiding by Salim in particular was excellent, his eagle eye and networking with other drivers produced many memorable moments, we saw 139 lions of various sizes, which was great, but did not beat my record with Salim of 163 in October of 2012. Numerous other animals also made themselves known to us by their appearance.I can recommend Peter, African Heart and his organisation to any potential clients. I encourage all of you to get out there if you can and see the greatest animal show on earth.

Asante Sana and Kwaheri ”

“We did an amazing camping safari in Tanzania and ended our journey with some very nice relaxing days at Zanzibar. Our safari was unique because of the magic nature (animals, plants, people) but also because of the professional skills of our very nice guide Msangi Halifa and the excellent meals from our caring chef Jerome Dausen. We spent some fabulous days together and we will not easily forget this special experience. Thanks a lot, guys! Also the location of our lodge at the coast of Bwejuu at Zanzibar was fantastic and the welcome in the lodge in Arusha both by the owner as by Peter was very warm. Thanks to the efforts of you all, we spent a really fantastic holiday! Asante sana! ”

“Book here and you'll have the journey of your life, they really listen to you, our dreams came true!

Good service, good guide, great cook .... a trip with lots of variety. They listened to us very well. Everything we have been told and promised has also been true. Lots of knowledge, great travel organization. Big thumbs up for everyone.”

“Dear African Heart Team

I wanted to write and tell you how pleased we were with our safari experience this week. We really had the most amazing time, our driver Salim was outstanding, he showed us so many different animals and was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were even lucky enough to watch a lion hunting!

We found the Burunge lodge absolutely luxurious and so peaceful, the food and facilities were second to none.

I would definitely recommend African Heart to anyone looking for a Tanzanian safari.

Many thanks 

“A journey of my life. That way you could name it. In September 2016 I made this trip organized by African Heart Expeditions. We got a tour guide who saw everything. The behaviour of the animals could predict and much about the animals knew. Everything was taken care of. In addition to the clear briefing, everything went on rolls. True attention to the customer, even though you were no longer a customer. Before the trip, there was regular contact and all our questions were answered. During the safari there was nothing too much. As a hobby photographer, I came more than enough to draw. Greeted by the Tanzania virus, I decided to go again this year. A real treat for anyone who loves nature and an organization that still has personal attention.”

"It was my fourth safari, but the first one for my 2 sons. Perfect organization, and high trustworthiness, that is very important when you leave on a safari! Very good cook that made us feel very comfortable from the start. Highly skilled guide that was able to show us everything we wanted to see."

“A professional reception, a very knowledgeable guide and a cook who's extremely skilled at concocting delicious meals with basic ingredients, all but guarantee a spectacular safari trip. We've seen lions and elephants up close (5 metres) and a plethora of other animals. Highly recommended.”

“We really had a very nice safari! The driver/guide had a lot of knowledge and learned us a lot! The cook did his uttermost to please us. For the children it was as well a good experience! ”

“Seen a lot of animals and the lodges/tented lodges were great. Nice to have a driver all for ourselves who also knows a lot about the area and the animals. We had an excellent safari, something we'll never forget! ”

“It was our first trip to Africa and African Heart Expeditions and all staffs made it a memorable one. We are especially thankful to our driver/guide for knowledge and professionalism. We can heartedly recommend African Heart Expeditions. Thanks!! ”

“We have done the lemosho route on the kilimanjaro. We would like to thank African Heart for the good organization of our trip. Also a thank you for our guide, Ezekiel and the cook Richard for making this trip wonderful. Thanks to them and a good team of porters we have made the top of the Kilimanjaro. I would definitely recommend African Heart for climbing the Kilimanjaro. Jonas”

“We have had a wonderful safari. Although it was a 3 days safari in the Serengeti and Ngorogoro we have seen the big 5 and a lot of other animals and a lot of wonderfull birds. Thanks to our guide Salim we have learned a lot about the way of living of the animals and also about the life in Tanzania. Our cook Furaha made lovely meals. It was my first safari and I loved it. I only heard of African Heart from a friend and all the reservations were made by email it was perfectly arranged. Next time I will go on a safari I will book again African Heart and especially our guide Salim.”

“I really enjoyed our trip to Mt.Meru. Some years ago I made Kilimanjaro also with African Heart, but Mt.Meru was much more difficult. I want to say thank you for Omari and all his team, to guide us save to the top and down, without pushing. Also I appreciate highly their skills over nature and wildlife, we learned really much. Thank you a lot. Dr Ahmed Al-Sarraf ”

“We just returned from Tanzania and had a great trip! Safari was good and guide Salim is very good at spotting all the animals, especially the cats with his personal favourite: the cheetah. We've seen various cats eating their fresh prey. Meals were good, thx to Fouraha. We liked camping instead of staying in lodges for being close to where it all happens. Our Kilimanjaro trip was even better: we both reached the summit in a very good atmosphere with special thanks to our guide Omar. He was very professional and paid special attention to our wellbeing. The rest of the crew made the experience even better: they seemed happy with each other and were continuously making jokes and singing. Thx!”

“A fantastic trip organised by a very friendly and experienced team - many thanks African Heart and Salim for an unforgettable safari in Tanzania and a very relaxing stay in Zanzibar :)   Jonas & Isabel”

“I have completed the evaluation form, but would like to reiterate just how good a time we had on Safari. Not only were Hilary and Peter both fantastic at their roles, they were also excellent companions. I still cannot get over just how good value the budget safari was. I'm sure we could have paid hundreds of dollars more and not got a better trip. I will have no hesitation in using/recommending African Heart in the future. I would like to thank you all for such an enjoyable and unforgettable experience and I wish you every success for the future. ”

“We had a totally memorable time on Safari and in Zanzibar.All the arrangements worked well and when they needed adjusting or fixing it was not a problem. Lucas, our driver and guide was very knowledgeable and allowed us to be as flexible as we wanted. We learnt a new term and became familiar with it: TIA which expands to "This is Africa" There were so many memorable moments - but Ngorongoro Crater was the most spectacular for us. Thank you African Heart.”

“Our trip to Zanzibar, Tanzania and back to Zanzibar, was the journey of our life. Great excursion on Zanzibar (dolphin trip & safari blue were incredible), unforgettable climb of Mt. Meru (Omari was a fantastic guide), and then 8 marvelous days of safari. The hunting experience with the bushmen was really crazy, but the best part was without a doubt the Serengeti. Salim was a perfect guide, we saw so many animals, often from very close. Thank you African Heart for a perfectly organised and coordinated trip with very skilled people. We really felt at home all the time. Even if life goes very Polé Polé in Tanzania, everything happened very punctual and comfortable. Asante sana for this beautiful experience!”

“We're back from Tanzania once again! The trip was again very well organised by African Heart Expeditions of course. Asante sana African Heart and driver/guide Salim for the beautiful trip through Tanzania. We've seen bush, beach and mountains! Melanie & Kiboko Kevin & Rob ”

“Perfect holiday. Mt Meru trekking and safari. African Heart Expeditions is a very reliable company. Everything as scheduled.”

“great experience, very good and reliable quality, very good local knowledge of African Heart.”

“I have now completed two 8 day safaris and am very happy with both. The safaris were in different seasons but to the same parks.There were plenty of animals on both occasions.On the second safari we saw 69 lions in total ,on one occasion there were 6 lions in a tree at Lake Manyara virtualy posing for me . I was born in Tanzania and would go back for a safari every year if i could afford it.”

“Great experience! ”

“We had a beautiful experience in Tanzania thanks to African Heart Expeditions. The 5 day safari was very well organised including a great guide, very nice campsites and excellent food. African Heart Expeditions offers good information, good quality and good prices. The fact that they booked our accommodation, safari blue and spice tour on Zanzibar made our ten days Zanzibar very relaxing. Everything was perfectly arranged and all African Heart members were very kind and willing to inform and help us whenever they could! Thanks for the lovely experience! Glauke & Egied”

“We did enjoy our safari to the south of Tanzania very much, especially Ruaha! Away from the crowds, we've even spent some time alone with a leopard in Selous. We hope that some day we will return, especially to Ruaha.”

“A well organised safari and a relaxing stay in Zanzibar. Thanks to all the people of African Heart who made this possible. Our driver was also very friendly towards our children!”

“Having been on Safari several times before this one I can honestly say that this was by far the best one and exceeded all of our expectations. Everything was arranged to perfectly. Our driver/guide, Salim was excellent and his spotting ability was simply amazing. Our cook, Furaha made sure we never went hungry and the meals were great. Zanzibar was beautiful and I would highly recommend the Mnarani Cottages. Thanks for arranging this fantastic trip. Jon and Natalie”

“Thanks for making our safari and trip to Zanzibar a memorable experience. It is something that I will remember for the rest of my life. I've already made several recommendations to friends so you should be seeing some future business from the United Nations out of Ethiopia as well as the United States. Take care! Matt”

“What a wonderful once in a lifetime experience! Safari in Tanzani beat all our expectations. The six day safari gave us the time to see what we wanted without feeling rushed. It's always great to go camping with a fantastic cook and a very knowledgeable guide. Thank you again.”

“The trip was unforgettable and Salim was AN EXCELLENT GUIDE AND DRIVER.”

“We were a party of 6(4 adults and 2 children) who travelled for 6 days. We were all impressed with the service delivered by Salim our driver/guide. He went out of his way to find the big five for us. He spotted animals from miles away, where other drivers/guides just drove passed them. The service and punctuality delivered by all the staff of African Heart was outstanding. We want to thank African Heart for giving us a great time in Tanzania. What a service!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Thanks for the great experience

“I would like to thank you for the very nice trip you organized for us in Tanzania and Zanzibar. And I have a special though for our guide Adam who had to deal also with our children ! I would warmly recommend him. He made us discover Tanzania, its landscapes, its animals, with great kindness and great flexibility We organized our trip directly (by Internet and e-mail) with African Heart. We have to say that everything was really well organized. We really recommend African Heart Expeditions !”

“Thank you very much for an amazing stay in Tanzania and Zanzibar ! Hans and Janneke ”

“We had a wonderful trip and I have to say a large part of that was due to Adam who was a great guide/driver - not only was he a really nice guy but his great driving skills, knowledge of the animals and birds and the area itself was to be really praised, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. A lot is of course a matter of luck in what you see but Adam also seemed to know where to go to find them. The parks/areas we went to and the places we stayed we all fantastic. In hindsight I can now understand the converstions we had prior to going about where the best places were to see the animals at that time of year - Ndutu was definitely it. The fact that the rain came early also changed things a bit it seems including making the area quite wet and boggy. Lake Manyara although it is only a small park seemed to have a lot of animals and was really a great setting, fantastic. The Norongoro Crater is really amazing, and the day we went the weather was really good, that also was an amazing experience. The Farmhouse Lodge was a great choice and was a nice bit of luxury, it was really beautiful and we had a great night there. Ndutu camping was a really nice spot - all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and you certainly have some good "chefs", we were looked after extremely well We saw the plains with hundreds of wilderbeast and zebra etc, so I can imagine what the peak time must be like. The second camp in Tarangire was also in a great spot and the park is really nice. Obviously the rain early had made a big difference to this park with the high grasses and bridges broken down but it is still a nice park. Once again our second shift of staff were equally good and friendly and the chef fabulous. We congratulate you on the whole set up it is really great. The whole experience was fantastic and we had a wonderful time - 9 days was about right - and we were sorry to leave. We have some amazing photos to sift through. We will certainly recommend you to any one we hear of who is thinking of going there. Thanks again. Cheers...Sue ”

“Had a superb 12 day bicycle trip on Tanzania.!”

“We very satisfied with our 5-day lodge Safari. Fantastic adventure, very friendly caring and skilled guide/driver Rama with lots of experience and fantastic sight. He even discovered a cheetah from about 200 yeards ! We had a lot of fun and would recommend African Heart Expeditions to everyone!”

“African Heart Expeditions is an incredible tour company that I would highly recommend. Our driver Adam was great. We took the luxury tented tour. You MUST do the luxury tented tour. Your accommodations will be better than any 4 star hotel or lodge. It is amazing what our cook was able to do out in the bush. Some of the best food we had in all of Tanzania was on the safari. Our driver was punctual, friendly and flexible. He made sure we saw as many animals as possible.”

“The preparations for our African Heart journey went perfect: we never had such a quickly replying office ever before! Great follow-up! Thank you so much! Our Kilimanjaro trip (Machame route) was outstanding, perfect, excellent,... !!! We were so pleased by our guide John and his crew!!! If not Kibo (Kili's top) but the sky would have been the limit, they were above it and we would have followed them further on... It was really thanks to the help of John and Enock, we reached Kibo... !!!! Our crew was one of wonderful people... thank you again, a thousand times, you'll hear from us! Our safari time in Ngorongoro NP and Serengeti NP, was also a hit! Ngorongoro is really crowded with animals (on none of our previous safaris we saw so many animals at the same time!!!) and the Serengeti showed us its Big Five...! And the Big 6th was to us the hot air balloon: you'll never see animals so easily from the 4x4 vehicle as you can find them with that balloon! Very nice flight (much better than Kenia Airways!)!!! And finally: Uganda's scenery and its mountain gorilla's... a breathtaking (really) experience! Our gorilla trekking was not a once in a lifetime, but only because we did it twice,... and again: it was worth it!!! Also the local people in Uganda were really friendly! So, three outstanding experiences in one journey: thus, we are very happy tourists!!! Thank you African Heart Expeditions and the whole crew of people working with you!!! ”

“We had the most amazing time in Tanzania with your guide and cook. Rama is an expert guide and wonderful teacher about the animal information, very kind and helping in every detail, Barongo is a wonderful cook, we love his meals and the most sweet guy.It was a pleasure to have both with us and we miss them.”

“We've had a very nice safari with African Heart in July (summer 2006). We've seen all the animals of the 'Big Five'! Thanks to our driver and cook: Husein and Rachid! Wish you all the best! Greetings from Holland!! Sarike”

“Hei. We were two weeks in Tanzania, six days for climbing to Kilimanjaro and rest week in Zanzibar.We are very pleased about African Heart. Everything was exxellent during our trip, hotels, travelling, time schedules, people were kindly etc.When we are going again to Tanzania we will use African Heart for organaising. Thanks. Jukka Pousi, Pekka Suursalmi.GUYYY ”

“Belgium, November. Days are becoming shorter and colder. Perfect time for watching again and again the 750 pictures we took during our 3 week holidays in Tanzania and Zanzibar. But even without the pictures, we will always remember the fantastic safari with Hassan, our driver who can smell lions and cheeta from kilometers aways, and who discovered the new species "Rhinoceros Hassanos" (was it really a rhino or a buffalo???). And we will remember Rachid, our cook, who surprised us each time again with the quiche and other dishes prepared on the simple charcoal fire. And of course, Pemba and Stiphin and Mskiu will remain friends, to our sons Tomas and Simon and to myself and my wife Gerd, after the trekking in Simanjiro, unspoiled and authentic masai-country. Many thanks, African Heart-team, for making this dream a reality, and for the professionalism and the perfect organisation of the safari and the trekking! Peter, Gerd, Tomas and Simon Simkens.”

“We also did recently a camping-safari with African Heart Expeditons, and we want you to know that everything was well organised, they have good equipment and the guides were perfect. We were very happy with Salim, and our cook Barongo was also very good. Keep up the good works African Heart !! Groetjes van Melanie & Robert uit Mechelen.”

“Our 8-day safari in North Tanzania was the most extraordinary trip we ever made. Also for the kids (10 and 12 yo) it will be an unforgetable holiday. Everything was perfectly organized. Thanks to Salim (driver) we saw all the animals we ever dreamed of. He became a good friend during the trip. And our funny cook Furaha served excellent meals. Even in the middle of nowhere. We also want to thank Lieven for taking us to the Maasai in Monduli. It was our first visit to Africa, and will not be our last! We will recommend African Heart to Africa-travellers! Hartelijk dank voor alles en tot ziens. Christian, Griet, Sander en Wouter. ”

“excellent organised trip by African Heart Expeditions. First climbed the kilimanjaro then went on a 4 day safari (Ngor..,Sergeng.. and Lake Many..) and ended up in paradise Zanzibar. Keep up the good work! ”

“Every day, we still enjoy the excellent thoughts at our trip to Tanzania. The safari with our friendly and experienced guide Adam was great. Thanks to the message board, we could share the wonderful experience with a 2 canadians. Thanks for the good service, for the great memories, and perhaps, who knows, see you later. ”

“many thanks to African Heart Expeditions for organising our tanzanian safari's. we went on a horseriding safari to Ndarakwai and found the area to be a true wilderness with plenty of animals to be seen in their natural enviroment, the horses were well kept and in excellent condition and the experience was unforgettable. special thanks to Lazlo for this section of our holiday he looked after us really well and made sure we did exactly what we wanted to do. we then went on jeep safari for three days and we can't fault the organisation of it and the attentions of our excellent guide, Adam. Thanks for a great holiday”

“We were very pleased with African Heart. Everything was in perfect order the entire safari. We obtained exactly what we paid for and more and would be pleased to recommend African Heart to other travellers.”

“Climbing the Ol Donyo was a real experience! It was hard but the view on top was spectacular. Adam and Esther were great people to have as driver and cook. The meals she prepared were delicious! It was a great combination of wildlife and the daily Tanzanian life. We will recommend African Heart Expeditions to other people who want to visit Tanzania! ”

“We did kilimanjaro via Marangue route, had an excellent climb & great fun thanks to Onex & team. then did 5day safari with hassan, fantastic knowledge & great guy, thanks to JMT everything went superbly well.”

“Did a 7 day safari. Was really nice. Seen a lot of animals, including leopards and cheetahs with prey. Nice sightings and climbing Ol donyo was really something.”

“My Kili-climb via the Machame route was absolutely great! Some fellow climbers (who booked with other companies) complained of leaking tents... Fortunately my nights were comfy, thnx to African Heart’s decent equipment! The cook Dio was amazing!! What he manages to prepare on one small stove is more than I can do in my fully equipped kitchen :-)) Goedele”

“We've had a fantastic safari. Long days and exciting every minute. Price-Quality excellent. African Heart Expeditions seemed to be well-known in Tanzania and has a perfect organisation.”

“We had a wonderful 10-day budget safari in Tanzania. Really enjoyed Lake Natron (climbing the Volcano), but also visiting Lake Eyasi. Many thanks to David and Rachid who where great company and made our trip unforgettable.”

“Dear Team, I have finally found a moment to write to you and say a very big "thank you". Myself and two friends did a safari with you in August and we had a fantastic time! Joseph our driver was excellent and did a superb job of finding wonderful animals to see, he also showed respect for the animals and helped us find quieter places to view them which we really appreciated. The support staff were also very friendly and excellent and did a wonderful job. The whole trip was very well organised and run and meant we had the safari of a lifetime. Once again, thank you all very much. Could you please pass on my thanks to all at Makoa Farm for a wonderful days horseback safari, that too was great! I will have no hesitation in recommending you and Makoa Farm to anyone I know coming to Tanzania. Kind regards, Liz Young.”

“Our Serengeti / Ngorongoro luxury camping and lodge safari was excellent. We loved the country, and saw lots of animals close up. Everything was extremely well organized: I could not complain about a thing! Our guide Charles and his three offsiders at camp were wonderful guys, and we enjoyed their company. African Heart can be proud of their staff. The lodges were great also.We've already recommended African Heart Expeditons to friends as we consider the trip was top value.We look forward to seeing more of Tanzania. Jeff Muller”

“We did a 10 day camping safari just before the start of the rainy season and discovered that we had to be really thankful that it hadn't started to rain yet ! The Hassan/Furaha team took excellent care of us, the car as well as the equipment was in perfect order. We can wholeheartedly recommend JMT to everyone wanting to have a good safari time in Tanzania with plenty of cute WARTHOGS !”

“Hello I've just returned from climbing the Kilimanjaro via the Marangu route. Hereby I want to thank African Heart for the outstanding organisation and the competent and friendly personnel.

“Now that I'm back at home and in the Canadian snow, I thought I would send a couple of pictures from our fabulous safari. I hope you enjoy.

“Looking back to our time in Tanzania and Zanzibar, Philippe and I would like once again to thank you for your excellent organization and the permanent enthusiasm and kindness David has shown during our seven-day safari, not to forget Esta's excellent dishes.

“Abigail and myself would like to thank you and African Heart for a wonderful safari to Manyara, Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The countryside was striking and the abundance and variety of animals amazing. We were extremely well looked after by Evarist and Furaha. We have never eaten so well while camping in our lives, and the general organisation and quality of equipment was excellent. Evarist's knowledge of the areas, and his friendly and fun nature will particularly be remembered. We all had a great time! Thank you again for help with the organisation, accommodation and transfers in Arusha. We hope to send many more Australians your way in the future to experience a fascinating country and people! Kind Regards, Allison Spicer ”

“My wife & I went in Tanzania for a honeymoon. That is really a great place to go to.We spent 1 week on a safari trip in Lac Manyara, N'Gorongoro, Serengeti (3 days) in campsites during nights. Adam and Fuaraha (sorry for the possible mistake in the name..) were so kind to us. I strongly recommend them. We saw thousands of animals, of all kinds. Do not hesitate to go a bit far, were the others do not (we saw a lion hunting a baboon!).Try to get up very early to benefit of the good sunlight for the pictures !After that, we travelled to Zanzibar, for about 10 days. A very pleasant destination. In Stone Town, try to have diners on the port, were there are plenty of people at night, and do not hesitate to walk in the very tight streets, and to go the the markets.After that, we went for a tour of the island : Kizimkazi, Uroa, Nungwi. Very nice beaches on the east and north.For the Jozani forest, maybe the guide will try to do the very minimum.. insist for doing the big tour !Take your time in each place, for you can enjoy it the best.Take care of the return from Zanzibar, which can be very very long.. We went back through Nairobi (much cheaper) but it took us about 26 hours to go back to France... Do not hesitate to have your flights confirmed asap, because it can change and you can waist so much time in the airports..All the people in the African Heart team are nice and trustable. You can ask for the options you want, they are flexible. Anyway, have a good time in Tanzania !”

“It's been a year since i went up Kilimanjaro, and froze my butt off at the top. But you CANNOT forget. I keep remembering it as the greatest endeavour i threw myself at, and it was made possible by African Heart Expeditions. One of the cheapest of the official TATO and Tanapa operators, everyone you deal with is friendly and cooperative. At least, that’s what i found. Just check whenever you travel or trek with African Heart Expeditions, the guides are just as nature preserving as you are, and don’t throw any trash on park ground or anywhere. That’s my only critical remark.... But i cant wait to travel Eastern Africa again, Zanzibar this time, and some parks, and will do so with African Heart Expeditions. Rest assured... ”

“Lots of thanks to Abraham, Musso, Hassan and Tonino. Everything was perfect, never seen this on an African trip before! Selous was great and Zanzibar met all expectations.We realy hope to do this again.Kwa heri!”

“We had a fabulous time. We spent 7 days hiking Kili and 5 days on safari. We were able to see everything on the safari thanks to our great guide Adam and our esteem cook Furaha. It feels great coming back to snowy NYC with a tan after such a rewarding experience. Kili and the safari are a must. We'd definitely do it again. ”

“We had a fabulous tour in Tanzania with African Heart. We really had a great time. Everything was well organized, much better than we dared to expect.We both made it to Uhuru Peak !!!!!! That was main goal for hole trip.Perhaps some small remarks to make you do even better next time is tell the climing assistants that if they don’t like their salary -> change work. Oversized claims about tipping money don’t live good feeling otherwise excellent climing.HAD A GREAT SAFARI in Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro with Hasan, our guide! You can see he enjoys to work with the wildlife and inspire everyting what he do. Good game viewing. Zanzibar and swimming along with dolphins was one of the highlights of the whole trip. Looking back on the whole journey we can say we had a wonderful trip thanks to African Heart Expeditions. Of course we will recommended African Heart to everyone here in The Finland and I’m sure that we come to Africa again.”

“it was a very nice and well organised trip that we would warmly recommend to all our friends and relatives. we in particular enjoyed Ndutu lodge very much the drivers and guides were nice and very competent and we saw a lot of animals thanks to themour only comment would be to initially welcome a new group in the hotel in which they are supposed to stay the first night and there provide some more background on the trip and the suggested itinerary, in particular when the group is not an experienced safari-group.otherwise no further comments. we were all very pleased with the entire tourthanks a lot!veronika wand-danielsson ”

“Promptness in answering your questions: 10 - They responded within a day. Four other companies we tried did not get responses to us for weeks. Knowledge in their product: 10 Overall trip experience: 10 Additional Comments: We found African Heart Expeditions to be a very "user friendly" tour company and would happily recommend them to our friends. The safari provided was exactly what was offered and our driver/guide was as knowledgeable as one could wish. We changed hotels for our return day to Arusha and on arrival everything was arranged exactly as we requested. No complaints at all and thanks to your service we were able to enjoy a wonderful three days in Africa. If we ever come back we will definitely go with African Heart Expeditions. ”

“Hello: ¡¡Thanks!! for your professional work in our expedition in Mount Kilimanjaro, and Safari, especially to Gideon, Johnny, Abdul and Tonino. ¡¡Your people is wonderful!! Maybe I will see next year”

“Just a quick note from the four Irish you looked after in September 2002.We had the trip of a lifetime both with the climb of Kilimanjaro and the safari.Your company and employees are very professional and helpfull in everything you did to make our trip so special.We hope to be back for a holiday in Zanzibar.We have given your web site to alot of friends! Well done and thank you. Robert,Jerry,Jim and Brian”

“Many thanks for the great organisation of our honeymoon ! We started our holidays with a 7 days safari (Arusha NP / Lake Manyara / Serengeti / Ngorongoro / Tarangire NP), then we went to Zanzibar where we spent 2 days in Stone Town and 6 days on the East Coast. For the accomodation during the safari we combined luxury camping, lodges and permanent tented camps. The food during the luxury camping was great, congratulations again to our cook. Thanks to our very experienced guide Mohammed we saw all kinds of animals, lots of elephants, zebra, lions.... We even saw leopards...But even without the animals nature is beautiful. Zanzibar is a small paradise with its white sand and the green sea. We can definitely recommend the Spice Tour with Hamman. He is an excellent guide and very friendly. We loved staying in Breezes Beach Club as the food was great and the people are very friendly. Back home we recommended African Heart to friends and colleagues. Kind regards and all the best. We hope to be back for climbing the Kilimanjaro.”

“Early July we had a great trip with African Heart safari's. We took their 4-day safari to Lake Manyara, Ngorogoro and Tarangire. In David we had an excellent guide, who delivered all his promises including the nice weather and the complete 'Big Five'. Campingsites were real basic but good fun and with Happy we had the best cook we could wish for.Thanks African Heart for helping to make our stay in Tanzania the experience we were hoping for. For all people looking for a good budget operator, African Heart Expeditions certainly delivered their promises.Greetings, Maarten and Tamar ”

“Going on safari with African Heart Expeditions is the best you can do. You have a wonderful time in all the different National Parks, you have the best food you can get, the gide knows everything you want to know, the jeeps are really good and safe, ... Thanks you African Heart for going on safari with you. Bart en Nele”

“Here's a short comment on our trip we made with African Heart Expeditions:Me and 7 friends of mine from Germany were doing the Machame route in 6 days. All of us were really amazed of the beuatyful landscape, the great panorama views all the time and the fantastic vegetation. Our crew with the 3 guides Gideon, Prosper and John and rest of it were just great and helpful and they actually managed to get all of us to the top! Thanks a lot for the fantastic time we had!!!”

“Dear Team! This is once again to say you "thank you" for your very good organisation of our two-week holidays in Tanzania. It was an unforgetable experience for us. You proved to be as reliable, punctual, personal and flexible in Tanzania, as you had been during the previous e-mail communication. Thanks also to your people who gave our vacation the very personal flavour: 1. Johny, our guide for the hike on Mt. Kilimanjaro via Machame route, was always reasonable and good for a laugh and the one or the other motivating song. Thanks again for taking us out in the Crystal Club on our last evening in Arusha! 2. David, our driver during the following very individual safari, presented us an incredible number and diversity of wild animals, thereof several families (!) of lions and cheetahs. His animal knowledge - also on birds - was outstanding and could more than compete with our 2 very sympathic Belgian bird experts who African Heart had found to join us. 3. Innocent, our cook on both trips, served us a great variety of good and fresh food, that he immediately adapted when we (only on 1 day) suffered from the typical altitude sickness. 4. Gideon, finally, was always restless and devoted to helping us making the most out of our holidays. Your personal commitment and organisational talent were really making the difference. Not everything is 100% perfect, but you always try to make your "msungus" (us tourists) pleased and happy. We are happy to endorse you further should people want to contact us. ”

“Just a short e.mail to tell you that everything was running perfectly. Nungwi Village was completely realistic and I had only good surprises. I am sure that the paradise was not so far. Thank you for all your organisation and your efficient work.”

“We were a 6 persons group and climbed Kili via Machame last week, with help of African Heart Expeditions.This trek will remain for everyone of us an exceptional memory of Tanzania, but we will especially keep in mind African Heart Expeditions as an example of what can be done at best in organization and service to clients in every moment. ”

“I had a great trip. Scenery on the Machame route was amazing, food was great, and the staff was very helpful. Thanks!”

“We were a group of 12 people from the Rotaryclub of Maaseik to visit with African Heart Expeditions the northern part of Tanzania. For the people who visited Africa for the first time it was a great experience they will never forget. They are delighted. Now they are convinced that Africa has more to offer then civil war. They found nature and flora fantastic. People of African Heart are friendly and efficient. Other people are interested.”

“Itinerary: Mbeya and surroundings, Iringa, Ruaha N.P., Mikumi, Selous Game Reserve, Dar-es-Salam Preparations: helpful suggestions of Tonino, quick e-mail answers, no problems to get an agreement with African Heart Expeditions: excellent Game viewing: good Game (wild dogs in Selous very close!, lesser kudus and Verreau's Eagle Owl in Ruaha N.P.) Driving: Adam could drive his car perfectly Accomodation: Baptist Center in Iringa is highly recommendable, our tent was big enough for people with a size not exceeding 1.75 m We enjoyed the tour a lot and are glad to have done it with African Heart”

“We had a fabulous tour in Tanzania with African Heart. Everything was well organized, much better than we dared to expect, knowing the uncertainties of travelling in Africa. We enjoyed Yusuf's reliable driving and Furaha's excellent cooking. Recommended to everyone who is looking for an adventurous, basic African holiday! ”

“HAD A GREAT SAFARI WITH EZEKIEL, our guide! Good game viewing. Good driving. Thanks”

“Again we like to thank you for all you did for us. We really had a great time in Tanzania and it is remarkable to see the enthusiasm of you all. The Kilimanjaro was a heavy task for us but at least 3 of our four succeeded to the top. The discussion we had afterwards with you about tipping money was for both parties a good example of changing ideas. We appreciate the attitude of JMT and the fact that also these 'problems' are discussable with you and can be used to avoid trouble with other travellers. The safari with George and Furaha was one of the highlights of the whole trip. What a great team those two. George is a great driver and it is remarkable how he still is able to spot the wildlife at a large distance while he is driving. You can see he enjoys to work with the wildlife and he can tell great stories. Furaha is a wonderful cook and we love the way he is able to prepare a dinner with only a few ingredients. Looking back on the whole journey we can say we had a wonderful trip thanks to African Heart. It is now time to process the photographs and write new stories for our website. Of course we will promote African Heart here in The Netherlands and if we have plans to come to Tanzania again we will travel with African Heart again. Guys our compliments!”

“Dear Tonino and friends of African Heart Expeditions,we remember all of you with friendship and we thank you very much for your competence professionality and kindness; we hope also to be again with you in Tanzania to take another tour, may be around the Lake Nyanza as we told you.Yours,Elio and Giovanna Sola”

“Thanks to everybody of the African Heart team. You really did a great job in organizing, guiding, cooking... perfect. We only can recommend your company. Markus and Nicole”

“Thanks for this great safari,that was beautful, many animals,fantastic food,great driver,many thanks to AFRICAN HEART. We will recommend it.”

“We really had a marvelous experience,thanks to African Heart Expeditions, Tevoet for perfect organization, excellent guide, with great experience,gentle,helpful people and we succeed to climb Mt kilimanjaro via arrow glacier for five days, meals are very tasteful”

“Beautiful safari, great guide, He really shared with us the vast knowledge of country, fauna very much appreciated”

“Africanheart Expeditions really means what it says,We enjoyed ,excellent guides, cooks, food, campsites, games.We would like to thanks,espêcially george and salim our best Drivers, and Furaha, Rama who made sure we never got hungry and enjoyed excellent meals”

“I had a great time with you guys! You showed the enthusiasm of a new company, which we could realize through the little thing. So yes, this made all the difference. Perhaps some small remarks to make you do even better next time: 1 Avoid bringing guests to those horrible shops along the road to Moshi were they sell over expensive souvenirs 2. please change your newsletter: 100 USD bills that are not older than 10 year but that still have the old logo are quite difficult to change in tz but apart from that: it was awesome!!”

“Our safari was outstanding. The service was first-rate, and the game viewing exceeded all of our expectations. This is a high class organization, and we would enthusastically recommend it to anyone.Frank, Scott, and Stuart Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA”

“Thank you very much for the wonderful safari I did with your company in January. The lodges you've chosen for us were top class! Special thanks to Limu, our driver and guide.”

“I was very happy when I saw animals there. The animals we saw there included buffalo, monkeys, lions, rhinoceros, elephants, chui and leoperd. The trip was very interesting.”

“Thanks a lot for the wonderful safari. Well organized, good guide and splendid lodges.”

“Hello amigos !!! Just back from an excellent safari. We can recommend the guide and excellent cook.”

“Great adventure ! Everything perfect !”

“Excellent ! My sister and I had a super safari. The food was great and our guide was very experienced. Your country is beautiful, so are the people. Thanks. Also love from Julie xxx It was fantastic. Ahsante."

“Excellent safari - saw every animal we wanted to see. Camping was easy as we were so well looked after (great food as well !).”

“We have had an excellent 5 days safari Tarangire - Ngorongoro - Lake Manyara. We saw a variety of animals in all the places and we were stumed by the range + variety of landscapes, from desert to tropical forest. The food was excellent throughout and the campsites were comfortable too, allthough I should have taken a torch ! Overall a good time !”

“I really enjoyed the 5 days safari Tarangire - Ngorongoro - Lake Manyara. It was my last safari before I had to leave back home, it was a good 'last impression'. The food on the safari was excellent and the campsites were quite interesting. The only thing I'd have preferred would have been if we went more often early in the morning for game drives. But all in all it was great !”

“We enjoyed the 4 days in Tarangire and Ngorongoro. Everything was well organized, very good driver and very good food. And we saw such a lot of animals.”

“Both really enjoyed safari. Tarangire was ace - 1000's of elephants - even saw a cheetah. Ngorongoro - really boiling by mid-day - take your woolies for night time. Simba campsite excellent wildlife with a visiting elephant + zebra at dinner time !! If you like lions you'll love the Serengeti. Abdula (chef) + Jonathan (driver) both lovely. Definately recommend African Heart.”

“Serengeti !!! Endless plains, what a rush ! A wonderful travel of Tanzanias beautiful landscape ... Wonderful company in the car and the whole safari was one big SMILE ! Thanks African Heart Expeditions, Happy (the chef), Lucky (Mike, the driver) and Eli & Claude (the company). Just great ! 5 wonderful, memorable days.”

“We joined the same safari as Claude and we really recommend it. Food was great, driver and guiding was perfect. We didn't see any kill, but anyway it was great. 5 day safari is good, and it's good to see different National Parks. A big experience which made Tanzania perfect. ”

“What a great trip. Maybe somewhat unlucky on the game-viewing front, but terrific scenery. I would recommend a similar safari : Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro. All 3 landscapes are so different, unique, awesome. Food : our chef "Happy" catered for 8 people although there were just 3 of us. Great food. For Michael, the driver : great job, thank you for all the info (possibly over-information). Giddeon, Mosses and Jo : thanks for everything, all very helpful and patient with this "customer from hell". Ahsante.”

“For a one day safari to Arusha NP we saw so many animals : elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo, baboons, monkeys !! Was absolutely amazing - what a great and unforgettable day. ”

“A lot of dust, but so many animals !!! Excellent driver/guide + delicious food prepared by Hamis !!!  Thank you African Heart !!!”

“Nice trip; enjoyed seeing all the animals, including a kill from a cheetah. But the thing that kept us going was definately the fine food of Furaha, our cook. And we loved the driving skills and stories of our private lion, Simba. He gave everything an extra dimension. Thanks !”

“A fantastic trip, lots of things to see. The team was fantastic also. Beke is an extremely good "eyes hunter" and a very good driver too. Innocent is a very good cook and we had a lot of tasty things to eat. ”

“An incredible 5 days. We saw everything, even a rhino attacking 2 crocs ! What luck ! Our guide and cook were exceptional. Beka can sniff a cheetah from 50 miles ! Thanks again to everyone for organising a fantastic safari.”

“We are extremely impressed with our guide (Zebra man), cook (Enoka) and the staff at JMT. We were very well looked after and saw so many animals + gorgeous scenery.”

“Excellent safari to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro ! A unique experience visiting the Hadzabe people ! We had a splendid week, thanks to Inocent, Michael and Tonino.”

“Great ! I made it to Uhuru Peak ! I couldn't have made it without the help of my guide and porters : Paulo, Jonas and Epimak. Thank you very much guys !! ”

“It was an unforgettable trip for our family. Shukrani na kila la heri kwa shirika lenu !”

“We are very satisfied with our safari. A lot of animals, good food, good atmosphere and faithfull organisation. Ahsante sana !”

“The 3-day safari was very nice. We have seen all the animals ...”

“The 4 day trip was excellent, especially Ngorongoro, which was absolutely fabulous and original. I highly recommend anyone to visit. I saw lions, elephants, rhino's and cheetahs.”

“Ngorongoro was a spectacular site. The scenery was breathtaking and the wildlife was amazing. The entertainment at the campsite was excellent and the hospitality of the locals was great. ”

“Ngorongoro was a unique experience, fantastic scenery, backed by a wide variety of wildlife. A tgruly wonderful place. The entertainment (evening day 1) and the food were very good.”

“Just come back from Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. Wonderfull scenery and plenty of animals. So amazing to see things for real. A magical time, all the more because of the helpful and friendly staff.”

“The 3 day safari was the best thing I've ever done and I fully recommend the trip. If I could do it again I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks.”

“3 day Tarangire - Ngorongoro - Lake Manyara Fantastic experience; I want to come back again. Thanks to all the staff who worked so hard to make the safari special.”
