"Our team of five people spent holidays in Zanzibar in April 2013. We decided on the way to Zanzibar to go on Safari from Dar es Salaam. We chose Watu Safaris from firms that were found in the Internet. And this choice was very satisfied. Everything was just fine. Watu Safaris will fulfill all your desires". From Russia
I did the two day safari - one day in the Udzungwa mountains and the second day in
Mikumi national park. Both days were superb, the jungle trek was amazing and the view from the top of the waterfall was absolutely spectacular (as was swimming at the base of the falls). We saw
different species of primate and a plethora of interesting flora. The day in Mikumi was fantastic - we saw lion, zebra, giraffe, impala, elephants, wilder beast, buffalo, baboons etc
Initially I was meant to be going solo however the plan changed and I took 7 of my fellow work experience students with me - this was very last minute and whilst it was exceptional value the accommodation was basic as it was arranged so late the mid-day meal at the park was sub-par. Nevertheless it was an incredible two days which felt like much much longer! Majenda was our tour guide and drove safely, was professional and above all was a cheerful chap! If you're in Morogoro or the Dar area I recommend booking your safari with Watu!" Michael & 7 others from the UK
"We traveled to Tanzania one two separates trips - visiting one park per trip.
Trip 1: Mikumi: Short, scenic ride from Morogoro. Excellent viewing of many animals. Majenda was very responsive to our photography needs, stopping as needed for the perfect shot!
Trip 2: Ruaha: LONG bumpy drive from Morogoro!!!!! Worth the adventure to get to the park - excellent animal viewing!!! Upon leaving the park in the morning (after an acoustic menagerie of elephants and lions lulling us to sleep and a great breakfast), we were able to watch a pride of lioness set up a hunt, view a hyena saunter down the road, and Jackals eager to escape the sightline of the lionesses. Wonderful end to a fun adventure. Trips are tailored to clients needs and time available. Knowlegeable about native species. Always concerned about client safety and comfort". Mitchel Kalmanson, USA.
"Watu Safaris made my experience in Tanzania one of the most unforgettable. They were able to personalize my safari according to the length of time I would be staying in Tanzania and they made sure I got every item on my checklist crossed off before the end of my journey. Just let them know what you want to see and do and they will take care of the rest! They will also personalize your trip on how much you're willing to spend whether you would rather stay at a budget hotel vs. a luxury camp during your safari. Overall, I highly recommend booking with Watu if you are in Tanzania. The price is very reasonable for the experience!" Lisa Nguyen from USA
"We were very happy with Watu Safaris. The driver was on time and gave us interesting facts on the animals. We saw all the animals we wanted to and managed to get up close and see an elephant walk right in front of us which was magic! The lunch provided was lovely and there was a lot of variety in the menu! Great communication from all staff and fantastic value for money!!! Would definitely recommend this company! Thank you!!" Alicia and 4 others – From the UK
"Our group of 8 people from Finland enjoyed a one day safari in Mikumi organized by Watu Safaris in Feb 2014. Excellent service! We can highly recommend this safari company! If you choose this company, you can be sure you support the local economy". Timo with 7 others – Finland
