Awesome experience Since the beginning that Miguel Almeida Bruno was very careful programming our unforgettable trip! And he did make us to achieve the most sensational experiences lived with wild animals! We visit several national parks, as Tarangire, Ngorongoro crater, Lake Manyara, but the most experience of all was in Serengeti where we saw the Gnus migration! But nothing were the same if we didn't have Jeff as our guide! They were the best!!! Thank you all

Amazing Tanzania Planning: I chose Earthlife after looking at value for money and top service from 4 other safari companies. Angel helped with planning our itineraries. I appreciated her quick emails replies and being ready to answer our questions. This really helped seal in the decision to go with Earthlife.We did 9 days safari and 5 days in Zanzibar.We were met at the airport by our guide Joseph. The vehicle seemed a bit older than the ones were saw in pictures. Not sure why we were assigned this one. Sometimes the windows were hard to open and close. The vehicle though worked well and there was no mechanical issues during our trip.We are a family with 2 young kids so having a guide who was great with kids was important. Joseph was superb and was able to carry on conversations and truly enjoyed being around my children. It made those long drive so enjoyable. So if you are traveling with kids, Joseph is your guide to request!We visited Moshi, Tarangire, lake Maynara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Ndutu and Kataru areas. Joseph was knowledgable and really great with taking pictures. He was also a very safe driver. We saw all the big 5 and got some amazing pictures.Along the way, Joseph stopped many times for souvenir shopping and to shop for Tanzanite.We were happy with the lodges and the staff were all friendly and accommodating. Box lunches could have had more variety, but overall was O.K.I would choose Earthlife again. You will get great experiences and guides.

It's like the most beautiful wildlife movies! My dream was to visit the African safari, and this March I fulfilled it. For a long time, my friend and I were looking for the right company that would meet all our requirements, and Earthlife expedition won to the fullest. It met our time and financial requirements.Our guide Paul was great! He picked us up at the airport and we became friends very quickly. The very first day we went to the Tarangire National Park, where he showed us all the beauty and showed us all possible and impossible animals and plants.Paul told us a lot of information about each species, for which I thank him very much! . Early in the morning we went to the Ngorongoro Crater and also to the Maasai village. The Maasai village is unreal. That life there is very interesting and I highly recommend a visit. The next stop was Ngorongoro, which we fell in love with immediately, and I have goosebumps whenever I remember a visit. The beauty, the peace, the wilderness all around. We were lucky and we really saw all the animal species that live here. Even rhinos you don't always see (and we were lucky to see a rhino baby). It really is an INCREDIBLE and UNFORGETTABLE experience that I will be grateful to Earthlife Expedition and Paul for the rest of my life.Of course, everything was all inclusive and the food in the national park at the table next to the car with the wine, where our name was printed ... it was also magical. :)If you plan to visit Tanzanian safari, then only with Earthlife expedition:)

Best safari company in Tanzania I cannot say enough great things about this company, which is locally owned and employs permanent guides (as opposed to many companies that only hire contractors). From the first messages with Angel and Deo, to saying goodbye to our incredible guide Paul, our trip was flawless. Response time was super fast, and they always allow guests to create a customized itinerary- a HUGE plus. The lodging/accommodations they recommended for us were absolutely stellar- beautiful bungalows and luxury tents, super clean, unique, and great food. They also made the trip very personal - it was our honeymoon and they told all the lodging staff so everyone congratulated us wherever we went. A very sweet touch :) Our guide Paul was absolutely one of the smartest guys we’ve ever met. Knew everything about the landscapes and animals and had a super keen sense for where to find all the wildlife (and we saw ALL the wildlife). He was so much fun and had incredible stories from his many years as a guide. We left gaining a dear new friend. If you go to Tanzania, absolutely use EarthLife Expeditions for your safari and ask for Paul to be your guide. You will not be disappointed!

Tolle Safari Von A bis Z war unsere Safari gut organisiert und es wurde auf unsere Wünsche geachtet. Jeff war unser super Fahrer und Guide mit ausgezeichnetem Auge für die Tiere. Die Lodges sowie Preisleistung Verhältnisse waren gut bis sehr gut.. Schade dass man in den Park die Strassen nicht verlassen darf.

Inolvidable Viaje a Tanzania. Qué experiencia! Éste fue nuestro primer safari, así que al planearlo sabíamos que queríamos ir a Serengeti. Al buscar opciones de agencias, me decidí por Earthlife ya que es una empresa local que ha crecido gracias al esfuerzo y a la experiencia que tienen por haber trabajado siempre de guías. Mi primer contacto por correo fue Caudence y ella nos recomendó un itinerario muy estándar que ya tienen que incluye Tarangire, Manyara, Serengeti (norte y central), Ngorongoro y terminar en Zanzíbar en la playa. También nos inluyeron la visita de la tribu Hadzabe, que vale mucho la pena. 15 días antes de partir decidimos que queríamos incluir el Lago Natron a nuestro itinerario y sin problema Caudence nos adaptó el itinerario. También es importante destacar que cuando dimos nuestro primer anticipo del costo del viaje fue antes de que se viniera el grave problema de la pandemia por covid19 por lo que inmediatamente fueron flexibles todo el tiempo en no cobrarnos los siguientes pagos hasta no estar seguros de que realizaríamos el viaje en las fechas estipuladas. Inclusive nos dieron la opción de posponerlo. A final de cuentas fuimos en septiembre, según los planes originales y desde el momento en que Moison, nuestro guía nos recogió en el aeropuerto hasta nuestros regreso a casa siempre nos sentimos seguros acompañados por él. Moison resultó todo un experto para localizar animales y podemos presumir que pudimos ver a los BIG 5 así como el cruce de la migración en el lago Natron. El vehículo 4x4 se portó a la altura y aunque tuvimos un momento tenso donde se apagó en medio de la nada, no pasó a ser más que una anécdota más ya que se resolvió rápido. Los alojamientos y las comidas muy buenas, salvo los lunch boxes que nos daban que creo es un punto a mejorar. No dudaría en hacer mi reservación con Earthlife para su aventura, la inversión contra lo que recibes es excelente.

Wow wow wow! What an incredible 12 days! We had a truly incredible experience with Earthlife Expeditions, visiting Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorogoro and Zanzibar! Moisin was the most amazing guide and truly made our Safari special. Fun, professional, friendly - his expertise and knowledge of the animals and parks meant we caught some amazing moments on camera, including a 200 strong elephant migration! His definition to finding the animals was second to none too! It was a very special moment to visit Tanzania as we often had the whole parks to ourselves! The lodges were stunning and Angel put together the perfect itinerary for us. Overall we would not hesitate to book with Earthlife & Moisin and want to thank them for one of the best weeks of our lives - we were so well looked after! We hope to meet again

Serengeti Heaven My wife and I went on our honeymoon in Tanzania, first an 8 day safari with Earthlife and then 5 days in Zanzibar, basically because no where else would let US citizens into their country. I chose Earthlife because it's a local operator, and one of the most reputable in the biz. I worked with Caudence on our itinerary for 2 months getting it just right. Earthlife is definitely the way to go in terms of service and quality. During the trip our guide Jeff worked to get our tickets from Zanzibar to Dar Es Salaam worked out... something that had nothing to do with Earthlife and they were only able to do because the owner had a relationship with the owner of the airline. Earthlife makes things happen. Speaking of Jeff, he was an incredible guide! He was tireless, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, positive, and funny. He was often first to the scene of awesome sights and he'd go the extra mile - one time we were headed back to camp and he heard there was a rhino on the radio and we went back like an hour just to try to see this one rhino and round out the big 5 (they're pretty rare here). You need to request Jeff. Tanzania is gorgeous and now is the time to see it. Every game park is like your personal wildlife paradise. The people are very kind and unobtrusive. They've been suffering from the Covid economy and you're going to get awesome rates and personalized service. Jeff said the number of vehicles is about 10% of normal. It's like going to disneyland some random mid week vs the saturday before Christmas. The risk of getting Covid is nil from the locals. (Obvi you need to get tested before you come to protect them). Earthlife and Jeff, remember the names!

African Safari Accommodation is as varied as the range of animals. With such an impressive diversity available, we take great care in selecting the accommodation that suits your style, taste, and budget. From rustic tented camps to exclusive safari lodges with the character of upmarket hotelsEach type of accommodation offers something unique.

Tented camps

Tented camps suit clients who want to experience a truly authentic safari and immerse themselves in the wilderness. It offers you the change of seeing wildlife close by. The camps are in general smaller and more intimate than lodges. They are set in stunning locations with great game viewing.  Don’t let the word ‘tent’ mislead you. Many tented camps are luxurious properties offering the same, or even better, comfort levels as the lodges. You can expect private spacious tents on decking platforms, with comfortable beds, furniture, flush toilets, en-suite bathrooms, and sometimes a pool. Often they are more exclusive than lodges, which is the reason they sometimes cost more than a lodge.
There are two types of tented camps: permanent and mobile. The permanent tented camps allow greater infrastructure and facilities, such as larger tents, more comfortable furnishings, flush toilets, 24-hour lighting, and more staff. The advantage of mobile tented camps is that it allows guests to follow the wildlife and be as close to animals as possible.


Lodges are perfect for travelers who like comfort and ease and to sleep behind four solid walls. During the day you can enjoy the game drives out in the bush and in the evenings all the facilities you would find in a hotel, like a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, gift shops and much more. Safari lodges are permanent facilities with solid walls made of brick and stone or other materials. In general, lodges are much bigger than tented camps. Of course, not all lodges are created equal and they have different levels of comfort and pricing. Most lodges consist of a number of buildings scattered across a plot of land.

You can choose to ‘mix and match’ the different styles of accommodation during your safari.

places to go kayaking in AfricaBy Jaydeep M

In June, 2019, my wife, my son, and his 13 year old son began planning a trip to Tanzania including a safari that we arranged through Earthlife Expeditions. We began planning months in advance and during the planning process there were many changes we requested in our itinerary. Caudence was patient and accommodating through all these changes and terrific to work with. Our experienced guide/drive, Moison, was knowledgeable and articulate during our safari and was especially great with the 13 year old boy. The lodges we stayed in were wonderful…beautiful. At the end of our trip to Tanzania, we ran into problems with our airline and, again, Caudence and the entire staff stepped up and saw us through the problem. I would heartily recommend this organization.

3 Day Safari, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro & TarangireBy Marc T

Don’t hesitate to schedule your safari trip with Earthlife Expeditions. From the very first contact, Caudence was very patient and worked with us to address our needs and select right accommodations. The whole trip went very smooth and our guide, Abu, made our journey very special. A safari guide can make or break your trip. Abu knows a lot about all animals, their behavior and habits, and he made sure we saw as many animals as it was possible. He would spot a lion on the tree that other guides could have missed… He was also an excellent driver and the car was sparkling clean every morning. This is an excellent, honest, and ethical company that I highly recommend for your Tanzania safari trip.

4 Day Tanzania SafariBy Alex

I went with a group of 4 to celebrate my mother’s 60th birthday. We had a wonderful experience with Earthlife Expeditions!!

To book the trip, I reached out to 5+ agencies in the area, and Caudence from Earthlife was the most responsive and helpful. She was flexible in our travel arrangements and was able allow us to see everything in a short period of time. She was also very helpful in providing different ways to flex on price and have options to upgrade/save some money. In general, felt the booking process was very straightforward, honest, and informative.

For the actual safari, our guide was Jeff, and he was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable about the history, geography, and animals in the region. Also, just amazing at spotting animals and getting us positioned to take great photos – he has the craziest eagle eyes and can see a tiny spec of an animal that is half a mile away. He is able to crack jokes to keep everyone laughing and then also know when we’re all tired and give us some time to nap and quietly appreciate the nature. He went out of a way to give us a WOW experience, even arranging a last minute birthday cake in the bush for my mother, something that she will never forget.

I would 100% recommend Earthlife and Jeff! We went in August for the Great Migration, but will have to go back for the calving season in February, which is supposed to have more “action”, if you were debating the two!

Safe places to travel in AfricaBy Globalroamer

We were a couple and we booked our trip with Earthlife Expeditions from July 25 to August 6, 2019. From the first contact, Angel was very friendly and worked with us to find the itinerary that would meet our expectations. We also worked together to select the best accommodations. Deo J. Haule, the Managing Director, was always present and helpful.
We met Joseph, our guide/driver in Arusha. He went with us to Tarangire National Park, Central and North Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Joseph was exceptional! His vision is amazing and he is able to identify animals from kilometers away. He has a long experience in safaris and his knowledge of the African flora and fauna is great. Sometimes, he used his traditional Masaai dress.
We were able to see over than 60 lions, over than 20 cheetahs, 5 leopards, many, many others animals like elephants, gnus, zebras, giraffes, impalas, hyenas, and so one… plus many different birds.
The highlight was the great migration we saw twice!! Unbelievable!
We had a perfect and magical experience thanks to Earthlife Expeditions.

Safari For Kids, African GiraffeBy Sandra M

Our family of 13 will always remember our safari with Earthlife Expeditions. Our guides Paul and Salim were both knowledgeable, thoughtful and organized. Each guide also drove, so we fit in 2 well equipped land rovers. Tarangire amazed us with diverse animals; Manyara with elephants and predators; and the migration across the Mara, after driving through thousands of gathering wildebeests and zebras. Accommodation was wonderful! Sopa lodges, and also the mobile camps. This was the trip of a lifetime.

Earthlife was everything we could have asked for and more, and the entire experience was magical.

Herman, our guide, was knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and the animals. He was flexible and revised our plans at our request. He was interesting to talk with, easy going, respectful and delivered beyond our expectation.

We made last May 2019 a private 2 people photography tour with amazing Herman from Earthlife.
We spoke with Herman after a recommendation from my friend Adi.
I told Herman that I have 5 days only for this trip.
Herman knew exactly what plan to offer me after I explained him my photography needs.

We booked everything very fast and spontaneous with no problems.

When we arrived to the airport Herman was waiting there for us and welcome us with super big smile.
He helped loading the car with all our photography gear and luggage.
The 4×4 car was big and comfortable, cold water supply for all trip with fridge inside the car.
We stoped at the supermarket to buy some things for the way, than started our trip.
All rides was pretty long but was very fun and interesting with Herman explanations about everything.

We went to Serengeti park, we hat great time there and got amazing photos thanks to Herman patients.
In car there are few bags to put on open roof for the lens safety and stabilisation.
Few days after we been in Ngorongoro for last day and back to airport.
We been in 3 lodges that the were perfect with perfect breakfast and dinners.
I highly recommend Earthlife and Herman as your guide!
Thank you!

By Or M

Our 10 day Tanzanian safari hit all the marks with amazingly beautiful flora and fauna. We saw everything we had hoped to see and more. Our guide, Herman, was a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to be around. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide or a better safari outfitter.
