We had a great experience with Suricata Safaris!! It was all very comfortable since they took care of all the transportation. As soon as we arrived, Hilary came to our accommodation to explain what our itinerary was going to be for the next few days. It is very expressive and pleasant. We started the safari with Frederic as our guide.
We are a group of six friends, we chose the 5-day safari with Suricata Safari on the recommendation of a friend who did the same last year, and of course it was a great choice. The route of the trip was Tarangire-Manyara-Serengeti-Ngorongoro. In short, an incredible experience, good value for money and above all a ten to Rocky. One hundred percent recommended!
We chose this company based on TripAdvisor reviews and we couldn't have made a better choice! From the first moment Hilary took great care of us, making sure that everything was perfect. The Florid guide is very attentive and he tried to make us see as many animals as possible; Chef Chaz cooks amazing!! Suricata Safaris is undoubtedly the best option!
We did a complete search and compared with many companies and Suricata seemed to us the best option, without a doubt a GREAT SUCCESS. We had Florid as a guide, who made an effort to find all the possible animals, apart from making us a super pleasant and fun stay.
