My family visited Tanzanian Safary for 5 days and Zanzibar Island for another 5 days, all of the trip handled by Alon Hovev, the sima safary owner.

From the beginning of planning the trip, Alon was wonderful. Explained and took care for all of the details from the largest to the tiniest. So actually we had nothing to worry about.

When we arrived at Tanzania, we had a wonderful welcoming by our trip guide and driver (Gidion Daniel), which we discovered throughout the trip that he is an amazing man! A lot of knowledge, kind, patient and tried hard every time, again and again to give us the best experience that could be.
He is absolutely THE BEST!

At Zanzibar Island we took the safary blue trip that was handled by Hadas (also from sima safary) and it was a joy.

Bottom line, Sima safary is a great travel company with a lot of care and thinking so that the tourists will enjoy the most!

Wow, that was amazing. We did not believe we could get so close to all these wild animals!! We really loved the 3 day game drive in Selous. On the first day we did a half day boat safari which was fantastic! We did see three elephant families and a lot of Hippos, Crocodiles and birds close by. Very nice boat guide, very relaxing.

Afterwards Michael picked us up with an open Toyota 4WD. He’s an expert for finding the right spots. Within a few hours we had already seen a lot of different wild animals: lions, giraffes, zebra, warthog, water buffalo, wild dogs, impalas, baboons.... Selous gives you a good chance to come very close to the animals without other cars around you. Just you and the driver.

We stayed in the Mivumo Serena Lodge, which was incredible! Perfect food and nice Lodge with friendly people and high class service.

We did choose Sima as we have been looking for an adventure but without traveling in a bigger group. Additionally, Sima offered us a real full 3 day safari! Most of the other companies did call it a 3 day safari but the last day already end 9:30 in the morning when the plane leaves.

If you like nice people, privacy, action and a big adventure, go with these guys!!

Special thx to Michael for being the best lion spotter and Peter for the great organisation and the sweet welcome in Dar es Salam.

After looking for a long time to re visit tanzania and looking to make my trip longer and unique I came across sima safari on the social network
After a few calls to the company I understood that it’s not like any other safari company
The design and planning of my trip was Taylor made
Every idea I had was put to action using their advice and experience
We did bush sleeping with an amazing cock
Had the best guide by far and always saw the most amount of animals with an awesome explanation
We always had anything we wanted a phone call away talking to amazing people who do what they love and the best at it
I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything
I will come back and when I do it will be only with sima safari! Much love!

We were a family of 6, who did the above safari that included also arusha national park, lake natron and tarangiri. In addition we had about 2 days in Zanzibar, but the safari is the real thing here. Alon is available and helpful all the time, he was not only responsible for the itinerary, but also was willing to accomodate it to our suggestions, and we can consult him about any issue before and during the safari. Our guide was excellent in all respects - identifying and spotting animals, explanations, flexibilty during the route and human relations. Our experience was great: we saw all the "must" animals and beyond, had the chance to follow to hunting scenes, and got experience in spotting the animals ourselves. Our interaction with the various tribes was also very pleasant. In some we enjoyed it alot and it was a great experience. just one caveate: check the rating of the various lodges in the web, and if you have doubt about one of them discuss it. Not all times it is possible to find another one along the route, but it is worth a try.
