We had a wonderful time in Tanzania. Our trip was mostly a private tour safari with three days at the end to relax at the beach in Zanzibar. The trip was a college graduation celebration for our daughter. We saw loads of animals in a diversity of settings (Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro). The guide/driver (who travelled with us for the safari portion of the vacation) was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna as well as a very nice person; the hotels were great; and the food was great. The beach portion of our trip was fun and relaxing - a nice end to a wonderful but busy vacation. We were taken care of extremely well - nothing was left to chance. I would highly recommend taking a safari with Lion World Travel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Safari. Our trip was perfect from our fist interaction with Jean Kadenhe in the office, she was quick to return calls and answer our many many questions. The Leopard tour in Tanzania was awesome - from arrival at the airport to departure everything was taken care of. Lodges were nice and service excellent through out our trip. We were able to see the big 5 and at least 35 other species of animals. Our trip exceeded out expectations.

Our safari to Kenya far surpassed our expectations. Our guide/driver was so knowledgeable and fun! He became like family to us. We were greeted with champagne upon our arrival to Niarobi and our final day we watched the sunset while sipping wine in the bush. Every day we experienced a multitude of wild animals and saw sights we had only previously dreamed of. Twin baby elephants are rare, but we were able to witness a set early in our trip. The leopard is said to be difficult to find, and yet we were able to see two of them. We watched three cheetah brothers devour a topi and a pride of lions enjoy their buffalo kill. Once satisfied they found shade from our vehicles and thrilled us with close up shots. Elephants fascinated us as they ate so close to us that we could hear them munching. We were entertained by watching them line up at a stream to drink and cool themselves. We feel fortunate to have experienced "The Big Five." Our accommodations were absolutely top notch and our "tenting" adventure was unforgettable!!!! The food was phenomenal and we thoroughly enjoyed the mix of traditional African cuisine along with the familiar burger, chicken, and pasta. The people of Kenya are warm, friendly, and very hospitable. We tearfully shared hugs with many of the staff as we said our goodbyes. Mandy from Lion World was THE BEST as she guided us through the process of preparing for our adventure. We highly recommend a Lion World adventure! Down to the smallest details they have you covered. We would not hesitate to book another trip with them. This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip filled with wonderful memories.

We split our South African travel between Cape Town and a Safari near Kruger National Park. Both experiences were sensational!

My daughter and I went on the Classic Tanzania safari with Lion World Travel. We purchased our trip through Costco and it was a fantastic trip – truly “bucket list” type experience. Our coordinator at LWT, Jean Kadenhe, was the best! Our travel was delayed due to covid and my daughter is in grad school which presented us with a very narrow window to get our trip of a lifetime in and without Jean’s experience and guidance I don’t think we would have been able to pull it off. A number of hurdles were encountered leading up to the trip, and Jean had all the answers and made it an incredible trip. The trip itself was absolutely amazing! We saw the Big 5 and so much more. From playful pumbaas, to majestic elephants, graceful cheetahs to bathing hippos, we saw it all! And the lions – the majestic lions. We saw so many lions up close and personal. Saw them playing, hunting, eating, grooming, and just chilling on a rock. The lions were a highlight of a trip filled to the brim with highlights. Our guide in Africa, Sam a.k.a. “Fundi” was amazing and brought plenty of fun and humor to trip. With years of safari experience he was an incredible fount of information and had an uncanny knack of knowing exactly where to go each day to get us the best views. Sam understood photography and made every effort to get us in the best position for photos taking angles, lighting, backgrounds and framing into account. If you book Classic Tanzania with LWT, ask for Sam as your guide. You will not be disappointed! The food was very good, not great. The beer was cold. To be honest, we were there for the animals, not food or drinks. I would have been just as happy with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (and the cold beer, of course). All our accommodations were top notch. We each got a great night sleep each day and the staff at each stop were so very friendly and helpful. And we always felt safe – even with the knowledge we were staying in areas where all sorts of wild animals could be roaming. I strongly recommend the Classic Tanzania package from Lion World Travel. Ask for Jean Kadenhe to help coordinate your trip, and ask for Sam as you guide and it will be a truly amazing experience for you.
