        Amazing Big 5 Safari Experience
        We booked a 14 day safari with Gilmag Safaris and were worried about the reliability of the service, but when we read review feedbacks from previous customers, we knew we were going to be in the right hands. They were much cheaper than some other quotes received. Mary and her team were there for us and went the extra mile with every possible request had. Mary was always available on WhatsApp and her email replying was also exceptionally fast. Nickson was a great driver and very friendly, making us feel comfortable from the first moment we met him. The safari was everything I wanted it to be. Within the first 2 days of the safari we saw all of the big five. We saw countless animals: lions, buffalo, leopards, elephants, Giraffes, Rhinos, Warthogs, impalas, Waterbucks, etc (all at close range). Don’t doubt and use this company. You won’t be disappointed! They mean business! 10/10 for Gilmag Safaris! What an amazing experience. We shall definitely come back and recommend you to our friends and colleagues.

        Best 14 days Kenya-Tanzania Safari
        Our 14 days Kenya-Tanzania, organized by Mary at Gilmag Safaris, was absolutely spectacular, far surpassing even our highest expectations. This trip was the best vacation I’ve had up to date. We found Gilmag Safaris randomly online. When booking a trip for Africa who knows where to start? I am glad we found Gilmag. Mary will probably learn reading this review that I was in discussion with 3 other tour operators during the planning stage. Not only was Mary more responsive than the others but her trip was the best value as well. I’m happy that Mary recommended that we visit 3 different parks (Kenya – Masai Mara, Naivasha and Amboseli. Tanzania – Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire) in both countries - both were wonderful but had differences and we saw all of the big 5 and experienced so many amazing sights Preparation and organization was excellent, every day a highlight, all things were safe. We had a wonderful experience in the planning of our Safari and had an absolutely FANTASTIC holiday! I wish I could relive this exact trip again and again because it was perfectly curated and so much fun. Much appreciation to our tour guides Amos and Nickson. We love Tanzania and highly recommend it as a must do destination.

        Memorable Tanzania Safari For A Solo Traveller
        From the very early stages of our communication, Mary from Gilmag Safaris was a professional tour consultant who understood what I wanted and designed a few packages for me to choose from. Frequent contact and continuous feedback in order to deliver the best possible itinerary was the reason I trusted Gilmag Safaris for my safari experience. Not only did Mary provide an excellent and comfortable trip, but she also stayed in touch with me in order to make sure that everything went as planned. The guide, Prosper, who picked me up on arrival was incredibly knowledgeable and gave an amazing start even prior to entering the park. I was given vast knowledge about the area, the animals, and the experience that fueled my imagination. The three accommodations (Moivaro, Maramboi and Kubu Kubu) that Gilmag Safaris arranged for me were fantastic. The staff were wonderful and attentive. I had the same tour guide each time - who was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. Everyone I met went the extra mile to attend to me. By the end of the trip I was already planning on returning to Tanzania! I highly recommend Gilmag Safaris no matter what your trip purpose is. I will definitely use them for my next adventure!

        Amazing tour with fantastic guide
        It was our first time in Africa, and we booked a 7 Day Wildlife safari with Gilmag Safaris. Mary was great from booking the tour, being in contact with us and our guide through-out our safari. We saw lots of animals and loved the Open safari jeep. It was truly a great experience. What made the package even better was the luxury accommodations and our guide, Gilbert. The drives were spectacular and we got to see all the Big 5. We also got to spot a wild dog, which is apparently extremely rare. This made our safari even more special. Honestly, I could not recommend Gilmag Safaris enough. The customer experience was outstanding. We had an unforgettable trip.

        I Recommend Gilmag Safaris
        Being based in Arusha, Gilmag Safaris was easy to deal with and responsiveness by email or WhatsApp was faster than any other tour operator I approached for quotes on a 7-day Northern Circuit safari. Paid for the customized trip by credit card with a modest surcharge. I met the owners, Gilbert and Mary. They were friendly and helpful, making sure I got to Arusha Airport for a flight to Seronera airstrip. An email miscommunication about what I wanted in the itinerary was quickly corrected. Everything promised in Gilmag Safari’s proposal was delivered. Praise for my guide Mbasha cannot be lavish enough. Mbasha is knowledgeable about the wildlife, an expert driver on roads others were not handling well, and a great traveling companion for my solo trip. Feel free to contact me with your questions (assuming this is permitted by TA).

        Unforgettable Luxury Safari
        We had an amazing safari in Tanzania with Gilmag Safaris. Mary communicated so readily and easily with us during the planning process and was very helpful and accommodating as we kept changing the plans. The organization was excellent, Mary was always available to answer any request and she was reliable. Our guide, Mbasha was really passionate about his role and did a great job giving us lots of information and making our experience the best one possible. We visited Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. The tour was a great experience. The Tanzania landscapes were sensational. I can’t express how grateful we are for the amazing experience that Gilmag Safaris provided. Zanzibar part of the trip was incredible – excellent accommodation. Qambani Luxury Resort blew our mind. If you are planning a luxury trip to Zanzibar, then this is the place to stay. We can’t thank Gilmag enough to recommending this resort. I highly recommend Gilmag Safaris. We felt so well taken care of throughout the vacation.

        Perfect Tanzania Safari
        We found Gilmag Safaris randomly on Google Search and contacted them. Every question was answered quickly and the preparation information was spot on. The payment process was effortless with flexible payment plan. Everything was perfect especially the warm welcome from our guide, Erick who was neat and perfect in everything with a clean and nice safari landcruiser. We visited Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti where we witnessed the Great Wildebeest Migration. Accommodation was well arranged according to our request and we had the best experience which exceeded our expectations. The Plantation Lodge – was the icing on the cake! The gardens, the rooms, the restaurant - fabulous! We had the best vacation ever! I recommend Gilmag Safaris 100%.

        Excellent
        Our request was a few days personalized safari. Already by the booking we noticed the professional and reliable way of working. The communication with Mary was very uncomplicated and all of our requests could be organized. Nickson was our guide on the safari. We couldn't imagine anyone better. He organized the daily routine according to our wishes, was very reliable, had a lot of knowledge and did everything he could to show us as many animals as possible. We even saw the Big 5. Thank you Gilmag, anytime again!

        Simply amazing company – amazing service!
        We were very pleased with Gilmag Safaris and Mary in particular who has been amazing! She was so patient with us while going through all the various options in order to plan our trip. Her insights were invaluable in making the right choices of where to stay and things to do. Mary was always available even after working hours or weekends to help with everything we needed! She was truly fantastic. Everything went smoothly and Mary was there to help with changes when needed. The attention and service was excellent at all times, from the planning of the trip to the return home. We had an amazing time throughout the whole trip with our tour guide, Erick. He was relatively young, but so knowledgeable and we could tell that he loves what he does. At every accommodation that we stayed, the food was wonderful and we were served like royalty. The payment process was easy and I appreciated the option of paying online by credit card instead of having to wire funds. We strongly recommended Gilmag Safaris. We are going to be back very soon!

        Amazing Tanzania Safari
        Not knowing what to expect on this trip, I found it a great experience. Traveling of any sort, but especially international travel comes with its own headaches. In my experience, it's simply an unavoidable part of the whole package. Traveling with Gimag Safaris however, defied that assumption from day one. Working with Mary and Gilbert, the operators of Gilmag Safaris was a joy. They were quick to respond to any questions we had regarding our trip and were able to put together an outstanding itinerary, which made for a most memorable trip. The tour covered Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Eyasi. A great wealth of animals during the tour was a highlight. The overall tour was made enjoyable by tour guide, Erick. We always knew what was happening and what was going to happen. A good choice of scenic areas!!! Gilmag also recommended a short stay in Arusha after the tour, and this helped us a lot. 5* for Gilmag Safaris!!!

        Amazing Gilmag Safaris
        I worked with Mary and was so grateful for her personal touch! All communication was as if I was talking to a friend. She followed through with all our needs, budget and crazy flexible schedule! The game parks selected were excellent and we were well received and entertained throughout. All the transfers were seamless and everything operated like clockwork - completely hassle and stress free. We would unreservedly recommend Gilmag Safaris and Mary who put together such a brilliant itinerary for us. Our guide, Erick was attentive and knowledgeable. Apart from wildlife tour, we also visited some very interesting cultural places of interest in Lake Eyasi. Thank you Gilmag for this great organization.

        Reliable and Efficient Operators
        All my experience with Gilmag Safaris has been even over my expectations, both during planning and during the journey itself. Cannot recommend Gilmag Safaris highly enough! I interviewed several travel providers before going with Gilmag and the difference in service was night and day. Our contact, Mary listened carefully to our needs without trying to upsell us. We had a very ambitious itinerary planned, and Mary went out of her way to ensure the logistics—from dietary restrictions to several transfers went smoothly. Mary helped me in figuring out the itinerary and accommodations that would have better fitted with my interests and desires with a particular care also about my cost target. During the journey our contact person was easily reachable by phone and email to give me support. Our guide, Nickson was knowledgeable, extremely friendly and an absolute pleasure to be with. I totally recommend Gilmag Safaris to anyone planning a well-managed trip to Tanzania.

        Wonderful Safari
        We just got back from exploring Tanzania and had a spectacular time! Gilmag Safaris is by far first class all the way. Everything was perfect from the time Gilbert picked us up at the Kilimanjaro airport until he dropped us off at the Seronera Airstrip to catch our flight to Zanzibar. Wonderful accommodations and food selection everywhere we stayed. We had an amazing African experience where we saw all kinds of animals and witnessed lions strategizing, killing, stalking, etc....saw the big 5! The service we received was outstanding start to finish. Nothing but praise for this safari company.

        Perfect Tanzania Safari and Beach Vacation
        The communication between myself and Mary was on time, reliable and accurate. She was very accommodating to my requests. And everything that was mentioned in the itinerary was as it was and all on time! The lodges and tented camps booked were very comfortable and cozy. But of course, the safaris were the best part with Nickson as our guide. We took so many amazing pictures of the wildlife. The tour guide, Nickson, was the best - very knowledgeable and experienced - we'll never forget. The safari was perfect with real effort to find us all the animals we wanted to see, Nickson full of knowledge and willing to show us the best of Tarangire, Manayara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. The food everywhere was amazing and we got a beautiful singing performance from the staff at Serengeti Serena Lodge. A Gilmag Safaris tour is worthwhile if you want to experience the magic of Africa with reliable airport transfers both in Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar. We'd recommend Gilmag Safaris to anybody and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

      We just came back from this epic tour. Great communication during the booking process with Gilmag Safaris. From the very beginning when we were planning our trip, the response from the company was quick and smooth, they were able to customize our trip to fit our preferences.

      We had such a great time on this tour. Our driver, Nickson was brilliant. All the scenery (view of the Ngorongoro crater from the crater rim was breathtaking) was amazing and Nickson knew great places to stop and eat. He also took us to some local markets and helped us get great prices. And he was just really nice and good fun. Witnessing millions of wildebeest cross the Mara River from Serengeti to Masai Mara, was an unforgettable experience. At the time of booking, Mary had assured us that, with good luck we would see the crossing and we did see it. Thank you Gilmag Safaris for such an incredible adventure.

      From the moment we established first contact with Gilmag Safaris, we were convinced that we were dealing with safari experts. All our queries were answered upfront and timely. Of all the companies we reached out to, only Gilmag Safaris was willing to share how safaris costing were reached at. We needed a detailed cost so that we could decide which activities to consider during our trip. Mary was always quick to respond and made sure everything met our expectations. All details of the trip were superbly handled from beginning to end.

      When we arrived to the airport Nickson was already waiting there for us and welcomed us with bright huge smile. Nickson is one of a kind guide - very knowledgeable, eyes as sharp as a hawk, knows the animals and birds intimately. He had lots of stories about Tanzania. He was an excellent companion to spend the time with. We saw giraffes, zebras, lions, buffalo, elephants, wildebeests, rhinos, monkeys, hyena, and so many more. Our most unforgettable experience was seeing lions teasing buffalo and the extremely rare leopards 2 days in a row. We also had a very exciting memorable balloon safari in central Serengeti.

      For anyone looking for a trip of a lifetime, do not hesitate to book through Gilmag Safaris. They are the perfect planners. Kudos!!!

      My husband and I have had this trip to see the wildebeest migration on our bucket list for some time and we decided to go this year to coincide with our wedding anniversary.

      From the first interaction with Mary and the Gilmag Safaris team I knew I could trust them with my safari plans. Mary was very prompt at answering many of our questions leading up to the trip. Communication was fantastic with all my requests and changes quickly addressed. They also provided great advice on accommodations and things to do. Gilmag Safaris planned our safari to East Africa and we were certainly in the right areas at the right time. Our itinerary was well designed to maximize time with the migration and related sightings.

      We flew into the Maasai Mara from Nairobi and all flight connections and transfers to Serengeti were arranged for us and went like clockwork covering Kenya and Tanzania. The Hotels and lodges were beautiful and service second to none. We had some fabulous sightings with Amos and Gilbert - our very experienced tour guides from Kenya and Tanzania. They were excellent at anticipating the animals’ movements to ensure good photos.

      A million thanks to Gilmag Safaris for making our dreams come true.

      My husband and I recently travelled with Gilmag Safaris for our marriage anniversary.

      As this was our third trip, our guide knew exactly where to take us to see animals, while explaining their behavior. The accommodations provided by Gilmag Safaris were first class, especially Lake Manyara Kilimamoja.

      We could never have put together such a well planned anniversary trip by ourselves. Thank you Gilmag Safaris for this amazing journey.

      We contacted different tour companies to see who could create a custom itinerary for me. Mary stepped up to the task and put together a wonderful itinerary covering some of the major attractions/experiences we wanted to see and do. During planning, Mary was very responsive over e-mail and WhatsApp to all my questions. We took 8 days safari to Kilimanjaro, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti with many stops in between. We had a great time. The driving was safe and solid, we stayed on schedule. The accommodations were comfortable and high value; and included breakfast, lunch and dinner. During game drives, we had bottled mineral water, hot tea and coffee. The guides (Abu, Freddy and Nickson) were incredibly helpful in every respect, and willing to accommodate anything.
      It was my first time in Tanzania, and it was the best choice with Gilmag Safaris. Everything went perfect, we had so much fun and could experience so many things...the country is rich in wildlife, history, culture and with the guys (Abu, Freddy and Nickson) it was great. 14 other people were with me and all of them could tell the same, they loved it.
      Excellent trip! Excellent people! Excellent experience! It was amazing and the organization was perfect! Unforgettable trip! Sincerely I recommend this Company. We will go back and choose them again! Gilmag Safaris is the king of tours!

      From the very first interaction with Mary via email and then WhatsApp, she responded to questions almost immediately. She assured me regarding my concerns. The package she created was perfect. The lodges were excellent and the arrangement of where we started and finished was great.
      We spent seven days with our guide Nickson in Tanzania on safari and he made our trip memorable. He found us all of the Big Five within the first day!
      The all-inclusive price was incredibly fair. My family greatly liked and enjoyed the excellent services offered by Gilmag Safaris. I would recommend Gilmag Safaris anytime. Their rates and willingness to make sure we got what we wanted was spot on!

      My girlfriend and I had an amazing experience exploring the stunning paradise of Tanzania.

      Gilbert delivered an incredible 8 days safari that covered Selous, Ruaha and Mikumi. It was a very adventurous and entertaining trip. Gilbert knows a lot about Tanzania and he loves sharing the information freely.

      Oh! Did I mention how smooth the booking process was? Mary is an amazing and brilliant consultant. She responds to email at the speed of lightning.

      Overall, we had an excellent trip and will definitely come back.

      I just completed an 8-day tour of Tanzania organized by Gilmag Safaris and it can be summed up in one word: WOW! This was a spectacular and unique tour, thanks in large part to Gilbert’s guidance and leadership. I would highly recommend him for any Tanzania tour. He was knowledgeable, fun, friendly, accessible, accommodating and flexible. He cared about us as a group and went out of his way to ensure our comfort and safety. I give Gilbert my highest recommendation. Because of him, I am now certain that my first visit to Tanzania will certainly not be my last. While on the trip we started to make plans to return to Tanzania for a further tour with Gilmag Safaris.

      Gilmag Safaris was recommended by an American friend who comes to Africa several times a year, and they didn't disappoint. Our once in a lifetime trip was made memorable by Gilmag Safaris.

      We had such a great experience with Gilmag Safaris. Mary customized out our stay in Tanzania a to include so many different aspects of this beautiful country. I am so glad I booked with Gilmag Safaris. We stayed in 6 different lodges and camps, but the most outstanding one was Four Seasons in Serengeti. We saw lots of elephants coming into the lodge's swimming pool to drink water.

      Our guide Nickson was fun to be with and he was full of knowledge. We enjoyed his driving.

      Thank you Gilmag for the wonderful trip. We will come again.
