I have travelled extensively throughout the world & this company 'Safaries R Us ' would rate the highest ever by far in terms of value for money, standard of accomodation, meals & personalized service. We had limited time ( 3 days ) but the company was able to put together a safari that was second to none. Our tour guide... More

Wow, wow and wow! We were volunteering in Dar es Salaam as midiwves and had heard about the great work Gemma Sisia was doing at the School of St Jude (TSOSJ) so decided to add a visit to our itinerary. We also wanted to do a quick Safari before starting our volunteer placement and remembered Gemma owned Safaris-R-Us. Gemma and... More

We were a volunteer group traveling from all corners of the world and had never met. Gemma did an amazing job organising our safari itinerary, our side trip to Zanibar and all transfers, seamless and faultless. The safari was a once in a life time experience. Walter our guide/driver was very knowledgeable and patient! The highlights were seeing the 'elusive'... More

In January a friend and I went to visit the School of St Jude's followed by a 7 day Tanzanian safari - Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater.

We did a 3 day safari taking in Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We then headed off to Zanzibar for 5 days of R&R. Gemma and the team at Safaris-r-us could not have been more helpful and accomodating. All the details of our trip were handled via email from Australia. The planning was effortless and all our...

I had a fantastic six-day solo safari with Ole and it was an incredible experience. Ole was knowledgeable, friendly and interested. The vehicle was reliable and clean (unlike some I saw on the road!) and the itinerary had been well thought out. The days are full and because of Ole's experience I got to see the Big 5. yay! I...

We had an awesome time. Gemma put this package together for us and it was perfect. Our Tanzanian guide Walter was outstanding! So knowledgeable and always smiling :) Lucky enough to witness the migration. Rwanda Genocide Memorial was very moving especially after hearing some personal stories from our guide Herbert. Meeting the mountain gorillas was also a highlight of the... More

What can I say about Walter and Ed. Walter was our guide but the comments were most definitely echoed from Ed's vehicle. What an asset to your company they are. Their knowledge of all things Tanzanian impressive and they have an obvious love for their country. Great sense of humour and both caring and considerate men. As we were parked... More
