The safari guide was very knowledgeable about culture, as well as African flora and fauna. It was never a problem to adopt what the team desired to do into the safari. The guide was enthusiastic to share African culture and wildlife information and was as excited for us to see things, as we were to see it. The guide respected the wildlife and was always looking for our safety

We stayed with Expect in Africa Safari last December. Everything was very good planned and Raymond, our guide, was simply gorgeous.

Some good things which made the difference:

Raymond, the best guide ever: expert and very sensitive;
We were the only one who have a Masai's blanket to have lunch..simple perfect!
We stayed in a gorgeous tent in the middle of Serengeti!

I highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to experience a real Africa Safari!

This is a review for Expect In Africa Safari. I did a 3-day customized Serengeti Safari and a 1-day Kilimanjaro trek. I can't rave enough about what an amazing experience it was. Raymond (the tour guide) is very knowledgeable about most things Safari and culture of Tanzania. I also liked that this is a small, family owned business instead of a big unpersonal corporate machine. I also liked that the company is flexible to its customers wants and right from the start quoted me a fair price (based off of the research I did). All tours were well organized and on time which I appreciated greatly. The only "con" I could think of is that there was no online credit card payment options, which created a small amount of drama on how to pay - but through it all they were very patient with me, and from what I've been told they are making online payments available soon. Super recommend this tour company, professional and fair!

We spent wonderful days! Through his incredible sight, Raimond spotted all the animal we have dreamed about (Cheetah and Rhino included!!!!) and gave us chance to see them so close! Lawrance arranged all perfectly since our arrival to Dar until our leaving. They are the best you can trust to do this amazing experience because of 1)quality & professionally - they are very well equipped and we were very comfortable in jeep and hotel; 2) cost - it's very economy comparing to other company; 3)funny - these guys are so nice and kind heart. I suggest to all this tour operator. Enjoy them!!

Our group of seven’s safari experience was nothing short of spectacular!
We cover Arusha, Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks as well as Ngorongoro Conservation Area over a 7 day period. A lot of ground to cover, but what an experience.
Not only did we see the Big 5 but we saw them in spades. We had fantastic looks at some of the large predators like lions, leopards and cheetahs; large grazing herds of wildebeests, gazelles, buffalo and antelopes as well as wallowing hippopotamus, lumbering elephants and stately giraffes.

Our guide worked hard and seemed to have a 6th sense in terms of locating wildlife. Not only were we very close to large herbivores, carnivores and birds but we viewed them in a setting where they seemed quite oblivious to us. They continued to hunt, graze, scavenge, dabble, court and even copulate in a stunning landscape. It was straight out of a National Geographic documentary.
Nothing seemed to escape our guide’s keen eye. He was an avid bird watcher and not only able to spot and identify the many spectacular bird species we saw, but speak to their natural history and behaviour as well. Same went for the mammals large and small, reptiles like Nile crocodiles, lizards and turtles/tortoises. His passion for wildlife was undeniable.

Our accommodation and meals during the safari/game drives were great. Three nights in a ‘bush camp’ in a spacious tent with 2 queen sized beds and a three piece bathroom was hardly roughing it. It was quite luxurious actually. Staff were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. A hot towel and cold drink on our arrival offered another touch of class.

Both our guide, Raymond and his brother Lawrence were shining examples of competent, caring and professional entrepreneurs with a small fledgling company. I highly recommend you consider them if you are looking for a safari trip of a lifetime. It was an epic trip for me that I will never forget!

Expect in Africa Safari also organized a 6 day climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. I’m happy to report all 7 ladies in the group made the summit. Our success had everything to do with the care, support and professionalism of our guides, cook and porters. We climb the Marangu route and stayed in rustic “chalets”. Food was hot and plentiful and our cook dropped by every evening during dinner. Our guides actually sang songs to keep us motivated on the final climb to the summit. It was a total grind but we made it. A huge “Thank you” to our devoted entourage of 21 as well as Expect in Africa Safari organizers. Another trip of a lifetime that I can boost about for decades.

Stride Review

Expect in Africa is the perfect operator for first time Africa visitors.


What Makes Them Stand Out?

Custom designed safari experiences, for travelers who want a unique yet classic trip through Tanzania. They are dedicated to making sure your trip goes as smoothly as possible - with airport pickups, and logistics taken care of so all you have to do is enjoy. They offer wildlife viewing safaris, adventure safaris, and special focused safaris - many of which are customizable.


Who Travels With Them?

Their safaris are best suited to those who have never been to Africa or Tanzania before and are looking for an all-encompassing trip, with knowledgeable guides and comfortable accommodation. This is ideal for couples and young families, and safaris tend to be most enjoyed by those who have some level of physical fitness (jeep rides can be long and bumpy!). For older travelers or those that want more comfort, luxury safaris are also available through Expect in Africa.


Where Do They Operate?

Primarily throughout Tanzania, including mountain excursions to Kilimanjaro.


Why Travel With Them?

Sustainable tourism in a country with unbeatable natural resources. Stunning landscapes, spectacular wildlife diversity and concentration, safari adventures to remember for a lifetime, challenging mountain and active watersports, barefoot beaches and idyllic islands, historical and cultural riches. They provide all this in dream vacation venues where you can relax and take in the magic of Africa.

Unspoiled remote wildernesses, home to thousands of elephants and bovines, and packs of rare African wild dogs and other diverse predators. Lake Tanganyika is among the most beautiful lakes in the world. Lake Manyara was a personal favorite of Ernest Hemingway.
