We, three brothers travelled from Mwanza to Arusha through Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Maniara in three days, two nights. Even if the time was short, we managed see the animals we expected to see, like elephants, lions, hippos, leopard, cheetah, wildebeests, buffalos, giraffes, ostriches.. The driver Vitalis did a great job. The only minus was the car, which was very... More

We contacted Shrike safari before leaving the states, and the communication was very professional. The morning of our safari, the driver arrived right on time. We waited a few moments and Mark arrived to collect our payment for our safari, then we were on our way. Once we arrived at the park gate, our driver went to take care of... More

We chose Shrike as we wanted to cross from Mwanza to Arusha rather than do a typical trip to and from Arusha. Our guide Julius had a real knack for finding animals, including rarely seen black rhinos and a leopard on the prowl and really took care of us on the trip. We stayed in 2 amazing lodges plus one...

He did his absolute best to meet our requests and did not let us down. No mileage restrictions. The vehicle was in good order and the accommodation first class - Mbalageti... More

We saw so many animals - baboons giraffes wildebeest, large tortoise, hippo, lions under and in trees.cheetahs. The guide was excellent in explaining the relationship between zebras and wildebeest. Lunch was good, plenty of water and we could stop whenever we wanted.

I did the 1-day Safari in the Serengeti in early November, leaving from Mwanza. I was paired up with an Aussie tourist for the trip (which cut down on the cost!), and we were led by a guide/driver named Emili. We left town around 5:30am, and after grabbing some breakfast arrived at the park around 8-9ish. I was struck but... More
