Amy M., October 2019

Kenya/Tanzania Oct 2019 (from Canada)
We travelled to Kenya/Tanzania in Oct 2019. Planning through Soul of Tanzania was a breeze! Lidia was our contact person and extremely helpful. Her responses were prompt and professional. Very flexible with changes to the itinerary or accommodations. And she kept me informed at every step along the way which was very appreciated. Lidia even called to check on us a couple times along our route to ensure things were going well.
The Kenya portion of our trip was provided by Spirit of Kenya.
The vehicle was a van (vs a safari jeep) with a pop up roof. The van was a bit older, but still got the job done.
Raphael was our guide. There were a lot of times we were unable to hear everything he was telling us – mostly because of the noise in the van.
Our accommodations were as expected, permanent tented sites. Clean and comfortable. Meals provided on the site were good. The lunches provided were not as expected. We anticipated a warm lunch as was described through Soul of Tanzania. However what was received were box lunches with a sandwich, piece of chicken and piece of fruit. Good, but a little disappointing.
Our safari vehicle in Tanzania was clean and comfortable. It was a safari jeep with a pop up roof.
Elinasi was our guide. He was great! So much information was given to us about the animals and birds that we saw. Lots of interesting facts. Elinasi was very clear with any decisions we needed to make along the way and strived to make our tour exactly what we were looking for…. Including trying to beat our record of 20 lions in a day and finding a couple leopards in a tree for me! (that happened twice!)
The lunches provided were good. It was nice to have the table set with a cloth and dishes and to have a warm meal while others around were having boxed sandwich meals.
Accommodations were what was anticipated (some were better). Permanent tented sites, good meals and some wildlife during the night. Perfect!
Overall, I would recommend Soul of Tanzania to anyone looking for ease of planning and a wonderful safari experience. Be sure to ask for Lidia in the office and Elinasi as your guide.

Nicholas was very helpful in answering all my questions and preparing the the perfect itinerary for me. I am very pleased with his service and would highly recommend him to everyone.

Celia Thomas, September 2019

Nicholas pulled together for us a fabulous tour of Rwanda and Uganda. We visited the burial site of Dian Fossey which was extremely moving and appreciative of the fantastic work she did with the gorillas for 18 years. We visited 2 sites for Gorilla Trekking which were unbelievable..the Rushaga and Nkuringo areas. Both treks were spectacular and very different. The Gorillas were magnificent at both. It was unimaginable how close you get to these beautiful creatures. We finished our tour visiting the Golden Tailed Monkeys which was great fun. The Genocide Museum in Kigali was very moving but worthwhile visiting to understand the atrocity that happened in 1994...All in all, a fabulous trip I would recommend to anyone wanting a different experience from the norm. Nicholas and his local agency were excellent in every way

A 5-day trip to the national parks near Arusha. Everything was very well organized and all the tour guides and their services were excellent.
