Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We met with Murtaza at the bus station in Lushoto and from the start he was very friendly, calm person, who helped us with the transport to the hotel. He organised for us 2 days trip to Waterfalls, View point and the rain forest. It is incredible how much knowledge he has got about the nature, plants, the history of the region in Usambara Mountains and I learned from him more than I ever did at school. He was great and patiently answering all our questions. We had a lunch in the middle of the forest, great guacamole. He involved everybody in preparing the lunch and we felt like a one family.
Walking through some villages he adjusted his speed of walk to us as we were making many photos of the mountains and talking to people. I was more than happy with the trips, Murtaza is an amazing guide and such a beautiful person not only from outside but also from inside, he helped us with the bus tickets and on the day of leaving Lushoto he called to say goodbye. I will never forget the Usambara mountains and the time I spent there. Big Thank you Murtaza.

Me and my Family spent a wonderful three days hiking from Lushoto town to Mtae village in the Usambara Mountains. We booked with Usambara Tours and Brighton organised everything very quickly and absolutely perfectly.
He guided us to amazing viewpoints, through beautiful forests and beautiful villages, where we also discovered local life. Also, the food in the lovely accommodations was the best we ever had in Tanzania.
Brighton was an amazing guide, explained us everything we wanted to know and just wanted us to have an unforgettable time!
It was one of our best trips in Tanzania and we can recommend Brighton to everyone who wants to hike in Usambara Mountains.

We had a really fantastic 4 days in Usambara Mountains with Brighton. We hiked from Lushoto to Mtae Village and it was just amazing.
Usambara Tours they took great care of us from the very beginning.
Our guide Brighton pick up us from the bus station and was very helpful and flexible during our stay. The trekking itself was great: we saw plenty of chameleons, some monkeys, visited plenty of villages, played with kids, talked a bit to locals and learned a lot about local culture.
All in all, I definitely recommend Usambara Tours and Brighton as a guide he made our stay in Lushoto Unforgettable.

We booked a 4 days hiking in Usambara Mountains with Usambara Tours and our Guide Brighton. he knew everything about the plants, the history, the culture of the region. The communication with Brighton went very well, the services provided were very good the car, food, lodges
He explained every thing and answered all the questions with patience and always smiling. We went through the forest, and villages where the always smiling children would come and speak with us, never asking for money, only wanting to share a moment.
Brighton was very helpful and took good care of us with great meals.
He organized our transport, accommodations, pick up and drop off.
Everything was well organized and we highly recommend Usambara Tours.

Me with my family are grateful for the wonderful Hiking in Usambara Mountains, Thanks to the excellent service provided by Usambara Tours with Halisi African Adventures. From the moment I contacted them the communication felt more personal than other companies. Our organizer Brighton was very attentive to our needs via text messaging and was able to organize the perfect tour for us. Even when the plans changed, and we had to move the dates, Halisi African Adventures was able to modify our schedule at no additional cost. Once we arrived in Tanzania, the hospitality and service we received was incredible. Brighton welcomed us at Dar Es Salaam Airport. The experience once in the Usambara Mountains was beyond what we could have imagined. We highly recommend Halisi African Adventures.

We went on 3 day hiking in Usambara Mountains and 2 days Safari to Mikumi National Park from Dar es Salaam.

We had booked our tour directly with Halisi African Adventures a few weeks in advance, and Brighton the owner, was helpful and prompt with every response. Communication went smoothly all the way from the first contact to the end of our hiking and safari.

Hiking in Usambara Mountains it's highlight of our Trip in Tanzania, We learned about Tanzania Culture, history, local medicine and we like friendly people around mountains.

Brighton even took the time to meet us on the way, even if he had arranged for us to have a great guide already, France.

France showed a lot of knowledge about the wildlife and nature of both Tanzania and Mikumi. He was friendly and a good chat who kept us companied also during meals.

We did not want to get too high expectations about what game we would see during our short trip, but we were lucky enough to experience lions, elephants, hippos, buffalos,zebras,Impalas,giraffe and many more.
We would recommend Halisi African Adventures to anyone who wish to visiting Tanzania.

We did 4 days Usambara Hiking and 5 Days Tanzania Safari With Halisi African Adventures and Usambara Tours team were incredible. This completely exceeded my expectations and was absolutely the best tour I've ever been on. Everything we were told would happen, happened exactly when and how it was planned. Everyone was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Extremely well organized, timely and clear communication,amazing service. I cannot praise Halisi African Adventures enough. As for the actually safari it was truly a lifetime experience, we saw all the animals advertised and it was incredibly relaxing to just be there and drive around the park. To top it off, even the food was good. I highly recommend you do your tour with them I promise you won't regret it. Best value for your money hands down. I'll definitely use them in the future and suggest them to all my friends. Our 5 days to Serengeti, Ngorongoro, lake Manyara and Tarangire was incredible!
Asante sana Brighton for organize our trip we enjoyed a lot.

We did a 3 Days hike in Usambara Mountains and It was the best choice we could have ever made because we had the most amazing experience with Halisi African Adventures. The contact was made directly with the owner, Brighton he always answered our questions with great care and kindness. Also he was excellent in terms of knowledge of wildlife from the plants to the birds,friendliness. He is very friendly, funny, wise, patient, professional and humble.
The places we stayed were very good too. Accommodations exceeded our expectations, food and drinks was very good. We really had an amazing hiking.
We would absolutely recommend you to others as it was recommended to us by a previous customer of yours. Asante sana Brighton and all Halisi African Adventures team.
