      The best 5 days safari ever
      We did a 5 days safari (Manyara lake, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and the crater) and we spent a wonderful moment. Each day was a different experience and our guide Manaki was the best guide ever. Thank you so much Samson and Manaki for your kindness, your patience and your love of nature. I highly and warmly recommend. Myriam & Elias

      Three day cultural safari Hadzabe and Datoga Tribe Lake Eyasi
      We had an amazing three day trip to lake Eyasi visiting the Hadzabe and the Datoga Tribe. Booking was easy via WhatsApp. We got Picked up at the airport and then drove straight to lake eyasi we stopped for lunch and for visiting a Masai village. (Took is about 6 hours all together) Emanuel our guide, was super friendly and a cautious driver, he always made sure we had a great time and even taught me some Swahili. We had a private chef who provided fresh Tanzanian food three times a day. We stayed at the Lake Eyasi Ng'ula Sunset Camp which was nice, we did camping but lodges are also possible. Visisting the Hadzabe and going hunting with them was a once in a lifetime experience. They have their own language and it is a completely different world. But be aware they are walking very fast so you need to be in good physical shape in order to keep up with them during the hunt. The Datoga tribe was also fascinating they make beautiful jewellery you can buy. For visiting the trips we had an additional guide who did the translation for us and explained a lot. We also went to watch the sunset at lake eyasi and had a guided walk through the area. We are so grateful for this experience and would do it again any time. Things to consider: 1) for the hunt you need to be in good physical shape in order to keep up with the hadzabe tribe. 2) we had a normal car where you couldn’t open the window on one site - think about spending some extra money and ask for a safari/ game drive car so everyone kcan put down their windows and have a better look at the surroundings. 3) all the tribes sell some homemade things which are really incredible so bring enough cash in case you want to buy something it’s a great way to support the tribes as well (we spent about 40$ at every tribe) 4) don’t forget to tip your guides and your chef they are doing a great job and work very hard ❤️

      Amazing Safari with Golden Trips Tanzania
      Golden Trips Tanzania are the best! They were helpful in the selection process for the camps/lodges that would fit our price range and the best itinerary for the time frame that we were in Tanzania. Once in Tanzania, we were well taken care of by our guides. What an adventure! The hot lunches were very enjoyable. Our guides were the absolute best -Bariki! - Ombeni! - Francis! We’ll be back! Thank you Samson for your guidance and your amazing team!

      Top-tier experience for a very reasonable price
      Samson was very accommodating when planning our safari. We were not entirely sure what we wanted to do and he worked with us to plan the perfect safari. He gave us a couple of different quotes and explained the difference between them well. He was also able to book us a hot-air balloon ride (which I highly recommend) and accommodations before and after the safari. Our final itinerary was 5 days. 1 day in Ngorongoro crater, 2 days in Ndutu, and 2 days in Serengeti. As a local company, they have all of the best connections and do not have the huge markup you see with quotes from Western companies. I had a family friend who did a 3/4 day safari through a western company and they paid nearly triple what we paid and received the same experience. Our driver guide Emmanuel was extremely knowledgable about all of the areas and animals. Over the course of 5 days we were able to see everything multiple times except for a leopard. Leopards can be quite difficult to find though as they spend most of their lives hiding in the trees. Emmanuel knew exactly where to go to find specific animals and had a wealth of information about each animal. The accommodations were very nice in both Ndutu and Serengeti. Nice tents with hardwood floor, large bed, furniture, in-suite toilets and showers, etc. I was very satisfied with the experience and would definitely recommend Golden Trips to anybody.

      The greatest experience in my life so far with GOLDEN TRIPS TANZANIA.
      We did a 7-day tour in Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and serengeti. It was amazing to see those very different parks and all the wildlife there. Out of the big 5 we saw all 5. Our tour operator Golden Trips Tanzania was amazing, as well as our tour guide Samwel! The company is a local owned and by traveling with this company you leave a signature to the locals and you contribute to some orphanages groups. Definitely we will come back another time and highly recommend it.

      Not just a safari! Also a great off road experience!
      We were picked up and brought back from to Dar es Salaam. The trip was really a challenge, but our experience drivers done very well! Rain season normally starts end of February but this year there was already a lot of rain before we arrived, with all consequences. Safari was a great experience as well, all off the crew had a lot of knowledge to share with us! Thank you all! Keep up the enthusiasm!

      I highly recommend Golden Tours Tanzania
      I booked 2 days Datoga & Hadza cultural tour with Golden Trips and I didn't regret it. My guide Sam accomodated all my wishes and needs. Sam and the guide for Datoga & Hadza tribes are very knowledgeable and customer oriented. I learned a lot of interesting facts about the tribes, their culture and their way of living. It was both informative and fun! Sam went an extra mile for me by helping me sort out some problems with my flight booking and making sure I make it on time to the airport, this is highly appreciated! I felt always well taken care of. Can recommend this company to everyone.

      Tarangire Nationalpark day trip
      We enjoyed an amazing 1 day tour with Golden Trips Tanzania and managed to see a lot of animals in the Tarangire Nationalpark. The communication beforehand and afterwards was professional and reliable. Tour guide Allan is a lovely person with lots of knowledge, an interesting life story and wonderfully patient driving skills. It couldn’t have been any better. We can highly recommend this trip to other travellers.

      Safari Lake Eyasi and Ngorongoro Highlands
      Three days with Golden Trips Tanzania. It was well organized and the lodges well chosen, especially Lake Eyasi safari lodge. Beautiful view from the terrace with an amazing sundown over the Lake. First day we visited Datoga people who demonstrated their skills as blacksmith interesting to see how they used all kind of metal scraps to make beautiful bracelets and all kind of tools like knives and arrowheads. Next morning we got a demonstration of the use of the arrowheads by the Hadzabe people, last remaining hunter-gatherers. In the Ngorongoro highlands we got a good impression of archeological and geological research. The cradle of mankind. Samson is a good and knowledgeable guide and also a reliable driver.

      *Overwhelming experience with golden trips tanzania*
      We had a 10-Days Safari & Zanzibar tour with Golden Trips. Joel was super nice and patient and always readly to help. Our guide William is the best guide ever!!! He is so friendly and experienced and he brought us to see all these animals that are only seen in the documentaries before. The journy wouldn't be such a joy if it weren't for him. We really enjoied every moment of the entire tour and I would recommend Golden Trips Tanzania. Joel and William to anyone who came to Tazania without any hesitation!
