We did a four-day safari to the Selous Game Reserve in mid-July. We traveled as a family. Our guide, Nazareth, did a great job. He was very attentive and asked us which animals we hoped to see. Amazingly, we saw every animal we hoped to see--all due to Nazareth's persistence! Organizing our safari was easy with Waterbuck. We highly recommend... More

I can't say enough good things about Shafina and Waterbucks Safari. I was lucky enough to find them during my initial search and after comparing to a few other reputable companies (referred by friends), I decided to stick with Shafina. She was very responsive and dealt with my numerous questions about how best to spend our 10 days in Tanzania.... More

Great safari adventure! Our guide was very good and experienced. He made sure that we were able to see all the animals possible. We chose the Mikumi Park Safari. The Vuma Hills Camp is a must! 5 Star! The drive from Dar is somewhat long and the traffic is heavy but unavoidable! You will certainly experience the African culture along... More

Waterbuck is incredibly professional and responsive. I emailed them to ask if they could connect me to others making the same trip to Mikumi Natl Park since I was traveling solo. They put me together with a fun group, and we ended up seeing all the major wildlife! Also definitely stay at Vuma Hills, feeding bush babies while sipping wine... More

We visited Mikumi National Park, as well as Uzungwa National Park with Waterbuck Safari. Our driver and guide through Mikumi was very nice. He was very knowledgeable and told us interesting facts about the animals, without overdoing it or being too invasive. He gave us plenty of time to look at all the animals and answered all our questions. Likewise,... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our safari to Mikumi with Waterbuck. For us everything was a treat: the villages we went through, the people we met, the animals we saw, the calm and silence of the savanna and then its sounds! We stayed at Vuma Hills and that, in itself, was worth the trip. Vuma Hills is a wonderful... More
