We had started to communicate with Aafeez Jivraj, after a good friend of ours gave us his contact. We did a safari to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Eyasi, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We were picked up from Kilimanjaro International Airport on time, spent the night in Arusha at Mt Meru Hotel. The next morning Aafeez came to see us to brief us about the whole safari. In camp we heard hyenas, jackal, herds of wildebeest and a Leopard ‘s grunt at night. It was all very exciting and an adventure that truly took us back in time how camping was like back in the 1930’s. The food in camp was even better than that in the lodges. We lost count on the wild animals that we saw!!! The migration was spectacular! At Ngorongoro Crater was great seeing rhino that was missing from the big 5 in the Serengeti. I would recommend Serengeti-Mara Fly Camps / Tanzania Private Select Safaris any time. Hugo was our driver guide and he was flexible. Our biggest complaint to Aafeez was there was too much food in Camp! The safari was well prepared. Thank you for a great vacation. We will be back with our friends in 2014 so that you can spoil us even more.

Thanks a million for everything!
We were totally happy with our travels. We really liked the lodges and our driver Godson He was very courteous and took care of us at all times. We enjoyed talking to him about different topics. He was very into nature and he was able to tell us about every animal. He also told us a lot about the culture and traditions of Tanzania.
On the safari we had a good blend between Lodge and tent accommodation. It was an unbelievable experience. Listening to the many animal noises sleeping in our tended camps was so different waking up in a wonderful hotel room above the Ngorongoro cater and watch the sunrise. Both experiences were fantastic. We saw “the big five” and collected many unforgettable memories.

Thank you Aafeez for a Great Safari.
Thank you for being our Guide for the last 7 days.
We loved your instincts when we were on Game Drives.
Taking us all the way to The Mara River in Serengeti North.
Your predictions were accurate and we saw the Great Migration. The timing was just superb.
You drove us from Arusha to Manyara to Ngorongoro to Serengeti for 4 days 2 days in Lobo and 2 days in Seronera and then you dropped us at Ramadi so that we could take a bus to Mwanza.
We have never seen so many animals, which included 2 kills (cats killing prey for food). We enjoyed the Cheetah. I do not know how you do it! You stop, observe animal postures then take your huge binoculars out and scan the area for some thing unusual.
Thank you for being so flexible on this great Adventure of ours. Msuya was great cook.
The food he prepared for us 3 was just great.
Hope to see you soon.

It has been great being with some one so frank and honest (this is some thing very rare that we have found in our trip ) You have been spot on answering every questions that we asked before this trip. We also thank Deo our guide who helped us make it to the top of Kili (the roof of Africa )
This was a great challenge. Now its time to go and get some sleep and most important a shower after all these days on the mountain. Thank you once again

Many Thanks for an excellent experience, which was thoroughly enjoyable
Great Camp, Great Food, Great Staff
It’s true you brought us closer to Africa, closer to Nature
We liked the sound of the wild animals at night. It was a good experience to meet real Maasai. I’ve ever tried blood with milk but for sure it was good.
When back home will recommend you to my friends
Ben Hopfield – Nothingam, UK
Thank you so much for a Fantastic Trip. Thou it was short we enjoyed it every bit of it. Ngorongoro was just amazing. The food was just great on this trip
Thank you Danny, Alexa & Ed from UK
Thank you for a nice safari to Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater
We absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for taking us to Oldupai Gorge (the Cradle of mankind). Hugo was just great and he showed us lots of animals. Next time we are here we would like to do the Migration Trip and use the Select Tented Safari, Out of Africa Style. We like this Idea of Safari. See you soon
Anna Rowiro & Ken – USA
Thank you for a very nice trip. The parks and wild animals were just amazing!! The Cooking and the Guiding was great. Very patient for us tourists and you understood us very well. Thank you for looking after us and we saw every thing that we wanted to see on this safari and for sure we will be back for another safari all the way from Canada. We have fallen in Love with Tanzania
Telamon. E Grant – Montreal, Canada
Thank you so much for a great safari to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater
We were very pleased with our driver guide Danni and our cook Msuya. The Food was very good.
Danni drove very safely compared to the OTHER DRIVERS that we saw on the road to Serengeti who drove like maniacs (they call them the Serengeti Boys) these are inexperienced driver guides for other companies who just know how to drive like crazy.
Danni our driver was very knowledgeable in birds and wild animals. He was very passionate about nature and he would stop at the right moments so we could take photos. This was just great for us. The Tents were very comfortable and the campgrounds that we stayed at were very good. We really enjoyed it very much.
All in all we have had a great safari and will recommend TPSSL to any one who wants to do safari in Tanzania Northern Circuit

We had a wonderful trip up Kili – Machame Route 6 days
Our guide was Ezekeil. His English was good and he was good fun as well.
The Porters were fantastic. They always beat us to camp (despite a fairly brisk pace) with the mountain bags & still looked happy to see us on arrival to camp. The whole team worked well together. The food was phenomenal. Everyone was helpful when one of our group members was unwell with D+V. We all made it to the top (The Roof of Africa) FANTASTIC!!!!!
Thank you so much to the team for making our dream come true to reach the summit!!!!
If you do Machame Route Do 7 days. The 6 days is a killer. We are so happy that we did 7 days as recommended.
Emma & Chris – Bristol, UK
We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 days 5 nights safari to Lake Manyara, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater with Tanzania Private Select Safaris. Our Guide Dickson has incredible knowledge and understanding of the landscapes and its creatures. We observed amazing African Animals in the wild, a time that we will never forget. We especially appreciated the care taken by the company to make us feel welcome and to take care of us. We have had a wonderful adventure with Tanzania Private Select Safaris The time taken by Mike (Tanzania Private Select Safaris) to ensure us that we had wonderful lodges and fabulous views were appreciated.
Esther, Angela Jacob Kelly & Jenny Jones, Colac & Victoria – Australia
5 days safari to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Empakai Crater and Olmoti Crater. I joined another group. The driver guide Godson made the trip very enjoyable. Will strongly advise walking one day of the safari for clients who are doing more than 5 days safari. Overall I enjoyed every bit of it and was worth an experience. P.S join the petition against the Serengeti Highway!!!! I just did.
Chris – UK
What an incredible Experience!!! Feez and Mike helped to accommodate a last minute trip for me that was exactly what I was looking for!!! Extremely professional and committed to share their passion with those of us from far away, I absolutely loved every single bit of it and I hope to do it all over again someday soon.
Thank you very so much to everyone!!!

If you plan to enjoy the best safari there is, Tanzania Private Select Safaris is the BEST!!!!!
Mike & Aafeez at the office will help you to find a great program. If you want the best food then ask for Paul the cook!!! If you want the best driver guide then ask for Hugo.You will not regret it at all. At the office they took time with me and assisted me to get to also go to Kigoma as I wanted to see the Chimpanzees. Best safari ever
Boris Shvarts – Israel
We had the best, we had porcelain proper table wear, others had plastic with different colours on the dinner table. Our cook and driver guide were very disciplined, friendly and with uniforms. For further information please feel free to contact us at email@example.com for our experience with Tanzania Private Select Safaris was superb.
We are photographers and have been in Africa for the last 4 months
Dan & Nora
Thank you for a great trip. We had a great driver guide Dickson.
He knew where the animals were. The camping experience was very interesting with the animal around the camp. Especially the lions at night (it was Africa at its best). Spending 3 nights in Serengeti National Park was just perfect (I will recommend this to fellow travellers) fewer days would have not been enough. We also saw the Great Migration heading towards the Western Corridor. Never seen so many animals on the move at one time. We have had a Fantastic trip
Thank you Mike, Aafeez, Dickson and our bush cook Msuya.
Michael & Gute – Denmark

Thank you for a great time on our safari. It was great seeing Lions, Giraffes, and Rhino etc etc.
Dickson you are a great guide to us and Paul your cooking was just great – it was better than the food that we have had in the lodges. I will definitely recommend people to use Tanzania Private Select Safaris. Many thanks for a great safari

Yesterday I came back from my Kili Trip. Everything was really well organised, transportation, food etc. The Guide Richard and the three porters were sympathetic and always prepared. So was nothing negative about this trip to Kilimanjaro. I made it to the roof of Africa!!!!! Uhuru Peak 5895 meter above sea level. I want to thank you for making my dream come true
Thank you so much and I wont forget this. I will for sure recommend you once I get back home
Once again thank you so much!!!!
It was not the destination that we chose from Italy!
High need of vacation anyway and a budget flight to Zanzibar
But here we are and want to take advantage of the most that is possible in Tanzania.
So we got a recommendation from a fellow Italian in Zanzibar for Tanzania Private Select Safaris
We called them from Zanzibar. The Safari was a great experience, a different style of life compared to busy Milan. Wonderful animals that we shall never forget!!!
When back in Italy we shall definitely recommend Tanzania Private Select Safaris to fellow Italians and especially to our Travel Agent who organized our flight to Zanzibar.
Keep up your wonderful safari work that you are doing. You are an open book and you keep your cards on the table unlike other companies that we have visited when we were shopping around in Arusha. Your office is truly a safari office. Thank you once again for every thing
Akiane and Gretans – Milan Italy

Thank you so much for a wonderful safari. I have visted Africa 7 times. The guide and the cook were excellent; they made me feel special, especially being a single female traveler. I wish TPSSL the greatest success, I know who I am going to recommend for future safaris.
After taking a safari for 16 days, I have had the best time of my life with TPSSL
