Just wanted to extend our thanks for your work in creating such a great trip for us. It went incredibly smoothly and I loved staying in the Serengeti for the first 5 nights. Couldn't sleep at night because of all the excitement of hearing animal activity -- one-night elephants, another night hyenas, and our final night with warthogs snuffling around the tent and a wildebeest stampede that galloped on either side of us. Lions roaring every night too! The camp crew was all very attentive and the chef's dinners were delicious every single night. How he does all that baking in the Dutch oven is beyond me.

Best vacation of my life and it exceeded my wildest expectations! MAGICAL! We'll be back next year...

Thanks so much for organizing and delivering on such a great trip. It was truly the experience of a lifetime. Our highlight was Ndutu, as we saw a cheetah with 6 cubs, a lioness with 3 cubs, a lioness in a tree, the migration and much more in 24 hours. Everything else was incredible as well; we really enjoyed the small lodges.

My wife and I just returned from Tanzania and a wonderful safari provided by Naipenda, the trip was far beyond our expectations and every day it got better and better. One of the things that made the trip so great was our guide Modi, his vast knowledge and ability to answer the countless questions we asked was very impressive. He made us feel like he was having as much fun as we were even though he does it regularly. We were also interested in birds and he was able to show us 128 different birds to add to our life list, and he took the time to tell us about every one and showed us the pictures in his bird book. His knowledge of the wildlife is equally impressive and we all learned a great deal. You have a great company and in Modi a superior guide, driver and a new friend for all of us. Thank you for an unforgettable trip. Oh yes, we saw the big 5!!

Jo was outstanding to work with and never once did she shy away from answering questions or putting me in contact with prior customers. Everyone that I spoke with by e-mail had extremely high and detailed praise for both Naipenda and my guide, Chris. Many of the prior customers that I spoke with said that their standards of service were very high and that they were quite demanding. I'd definitely say that I fit this profile too! So, if you are demanding and really want a great experience, then Naipenda would be a great choice!

Just a few lines to let you know what a fantastic time we had in Tanzania. Every day gave us new experiences. Our driver did a great job in finding the animals and giving us background, not only on the animals but on the culture and inhabitants of Tanzania. The Lodges were wonderful as was the luxury camp. We were a little overwhelmed to be the only ones at the tent sites. The camp crew made us feel like royalty. Naipenda produced a great Safari for us. Everything was handled in an efficient and profession manner. Looking at some of the other tour groups we encountered in the parks, we realized how glad we were to have gone with Naipenda.

A belated thank you for a wonderful trip, which all seven of us enjoyed tremendously. After spending a fairly intense week up in Maramba it was a real pleasure to go on safari in four different game parks where the itinerary went like clockwork. The diversity of animals was just amazing and Chris was a first class guide, very courteous with an excellent knowledge of the wildlife.
All in all a 5 star holiday and we will have no hesitation in recommending Naipenda Safaris to our friends and family.
