Going the Extra Mile “Going the extra mile” sentence has nothing on these guys. Emmanuel and Ebenezar from Allen Tanzania Safari tour went far and beyond to make us feel welcomed, comfortable, and accommodating to our needs and wants. We had a mission to see the big 5 and with their bionic eyes, they made it happened! We saw 56 lions, leopard, Cape buffalos, elephants, and the one and only almost extinct, rhino! Not only that, we saw approximately 57 (I counted ;), different types of animals and species. Our guides were knowledgeable in all of them, giving us details about their habitats, social lives, gestation periods, hunting patterns, etc. Extremely knowledgeable but in case they didn’t know an exact answer, they’d quickly look up on their encyclopedia and were able to tell us. We were traveling with 5 children and teens, our Safari guides were really patient, playful, and very engaging with them. They were also, always assuring all of our safety, which was their priority, wether was while driving, towards the animals or being mindful of our surroundings. Before I came to Tanzania, I had heard we would loose weight, I wish it was the case! On the contrary, a few pounds heavier thankful to our Safari guides bringing real meals to our lunch. They would request wherever we were staying some fresh food to take on our picnics while on Safari. We had full hot meals; with rice, steak, potatoes, curry, steamed veggies, grilled chicken… everyday a new delicious meal. I was very impressed with their efforts in that aspect. These guys helped us have a magical, surreal, once in a lifetime and unforgettable experience. Tanzania has my heart and I’m grateful and humbled to have had this opportunity provided by Ebenezer and Emmanuel from Allen Tanzania Safari Tours.

An amazing experience made most enjoyable by arrangements by Silas and drive/guide Amani. We recently completed our safari organized by Allen Travels. This trip was in planning since 202 and was originally planned for November 2021, then changed to Feb 2022 due to COVID situation and again postponed to October 2022. Silas of Allen Safaris was very patient and understanding and worked with us as per requests. From the time we landed in Kilimanjaro airport (two arrived on time and two arrived a day late due to missed flight), received by Silas till we boarded the flight back, we were attended to very professionally. The guide and driver Amani was the best guide one could have- he never gave up on citing animals and he made sure that we got to see all big five, up, personal and close with wonderful photo opportunities of their life. We even saw several groups of migrating wildebeest starting from Kenyan border of Masai Mara, North Serengeti all the way to Mara River crossing which was a phenomenal experience to be remembered. I would highly recommend Allen Travels for Tanzanian safari through Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Park. Contact Silas and do ask for Amani as the driver and guide!

Another safari of a lifetime! I just completed my second safari with Allen Tanzania Safaris. The first was in 2019, and I couldn't wait until I had another chance to be on safari with Allen. He and our second guide, his cousin Amani, provided an outstanding experience with many magical animal encounters, including a mother leopard and her two cubs, and a total of 5 wildebeest crossings at the Mara River. Allen and Amani worked tirelessly to ensure our comfort and enjoyment, and they are experts at getting just the right viewing angle for photographers, and for finding great sightings off the beaten path and away from the multitudes of vehicles in the Serengeti. Important to me, they are true animal lovers and highly ethical, and never did anything to interfere with the animals we came upon. Allen is truly a master guide, and after six safaris in different parts of Africa, I can say that he is the best. There is a reason that many reviews are from repeat customers; Allen is an outstanding guide and a wonderful, caring person.
The Best Guides in Tanzania! Allen was my lead guide on a Tanzania safari in 2004. In 2019, I jumped at the chance to travel with him again, this time using his company for my group. I've now just finished a two-week safari with Allen again, leading a group of 12. Our guides were Allen himself and his cousin Amani. This was my 23rd safari and I've traveled all over Africa. The key to any successful safari is the guiding. I can say with certainty that some of the best guiding I've ever had is with Allen Tanzania Safaris. Allen and Amani had the uncanny ability to spot wildlife that other guides missed. They knew when and where to position us for the best viewing and photographs. They were also respectful of that wildlife, taking care not to interfere with them. With hundreds of vehicles swarming all over the Central Serengeti, Allen opted to go to the Moru Kopjes. Few other vehicles were there, but we had amazing sightings, including 4 lionesses with 8 cubs and a leopardess with 2 cubs. Allen even spotted a rhino at a distance. In the northern Serengeti, we saw 5 crossings on the Mara River, 4 in one day. Allen really worked at finding great wildlife viewing with a minimum of other vehicles around.Both Allen and Amani were generous in sharing their knowledge of the wildlife, but also of the people and cultures of Tanzania. Allen's briefings were filled with useful information for us. You may go on safari for the wildlife, but you'll remember the people!Being the planner for the trip, I worked closely with Silas, the Sales Manager for Allen Tanzania Safaris. I appreciated his diligence in getting all the details worked out for us. Even during a pandemic, all our arrangements went smoothly.

As good as it gets My husband and I, our two sons, and their families had a fabulous 8-day safari with Allen Tanzania Safaris. The planning and execution of the 1500 km trip as well as attention to detail and personal needs were impeccable. We received a real-time explanation of animal species and habitats throughout each day's outing and no question was left unanswered. Keeping a group ages 7-76 years is not an easy task but everyone was kept engaged and animated from start to finish each day. None of this was a surprise to my husband and me. This was our third safari experience with Allen Tanzania Safaris, each one exceeding our expectations. A safari with Allen Tanzania Safaris is as good as it gets!

Out third safari with Allen: getting better every time My wife and I have visited the Serengeti and surrounding national parks three times over the last 20 years, always with Allen as our guide and driver. The experience has been excellent every time. Allen is an outstanding individual, from a personal as well from a professional standpoint. The people working for him are all excellent.As an avid photographer, my demands are high. Allen and his drivers understand photographers and their specific needs.This last visit was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, with our sons and their respective families. We had an unforgettable experience. After 8 African safaris, 3 of them with Allen in Tanzania, I feel qualified to say is that it doesn't get any better than with Allen Tanzania Safaris.
The undisputed expert on Tanzania! Where do I begin? Allen helped us craft a masterpiece of an itinerary (Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti). He and his staff provided top notch service, clean vehicles with many comforts, always on time and managed our expectations well about how many animals we would see.By the end of 8 days, we had seen *every single animal* we were hoping for: Elephant, Impala, Antelope, Dik Dik, Lion, Warthog, Wildebeest, Jackal, Zebra, Python, Ostrich, Gazelle, Buffalo, Giraffe, Flamingo, Hyena, Vulture, Monkey, Baboon, Crocodile, Mongoose, Eland, Topi, Secretary Bird, Cheetah, Leopard turtle, African goshawk, Maribou stork, Agama Lizard, and of course the Leopard!In most cases, we had multiple sightings. Every question we had, there was an answer ready. It's not enough just to see them... you want to understand all the context about the animals' habitat, the seasonal trends, the evolution, etc. Allen gives you ALL of this!Highly recommend. When we next go to Tanzania, we already know who our guide will be 🙂
Guida top Guida naturalistica vera oltre ad esperto guidatore (che serve) che fa tutto con tanta passione. Esperienza unica, non solo del viaggio ma anche umano. Super organizzato.

Delightful day in Ngorongoro Crater We used Allen Tanzania Safaris for our trip to Ngorongoro Crater and it was phenomenal. Ebenezer our guide was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and was so personable and friendly. His English is very good. It was if the animals all put themselves on display the day we went starting with elephants right by the road! I know that you would be blessed to use them!


Africa meets Orient & breathtaking maritime life

Landscape Zanzibar Island is the largest island of the Zanzibar Archipelago lying off the Tanzanian coast in the Indian Ocean. Zanzibar Islands features a warm, tropical climate year round. Intense rainfall usually occurs in March, April, and May in association with the annual southwest monsoon. The archipelago´s main island (also called Unguja Island) is low-lying, with its highest point reaching 120 meters above sea level, and is well known for its picture-perfect white-sand beaches and the clear blue water. Some of the greatest assets of Zanzibar are even below sea level. The archipelago is surrounded by stunning coral reefs with a species rich maritime life that invites for thrilling snorkeling and diving experiences.

Local Life & Culture Visiting Zanzibar also means travelling back in time to ancient Persia, to Oman´s caliphs and sultans, and to mystic India with its heavily laden scents. Stone Town, the historic center of Zanzibar City, was Africa´s most influential capital of slave and ivory trade until the 19th century. With its beautiful mosques, grand Arab houses, bustling bazaars, and the scenic waterfront Stone Town is considered as the old archipelago´s soul. African and Oriental culture merge to a charming ethnic and religious kaleidoscope that reminds to the fairy tales of 1001 nights. Ancient history is still alive until today as Zanzibari understand to construct the traditional wooden sailing vessels called “Dhow”, that are also used for tourist boat cruises.
