My 4 friends and I booked the 4-day Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro safari through Erik. Our experience was amazing. Despite the car breakdown, Eric solved it quickly by sending a new car and a new guide. Ben, our guide was very professional, friendly and attentive. He asked us what our expectations were and definitely exceeded them. We saw a lot of animals and Ben answered all our questions. Our cook Nora was also kind and made us a delicious meal.

We did 5 days of Safari with our guide Emmanuel in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro national park. Emmanuel knew all the best spots, always gave information to the animals, answered all our questions and always tried to give us the best possible view of the animals. Joining Safaris provided us with breakfast, lunch and dinner which was phenomenally good.
All in all the best experience I've made in Tanzania.

We had the pleasure of experiencing 3 weeks in Tanzania with Joining Safari LTD, and it was absolutely fantastic! From start to finish, we were provided with excellent service. There were three of us traveling: my husband, my brother-in-law, and myself.

For the first part of our journey, a 7-day safari through the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, we were accompanied by Emmanuel. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, passionately narrating about the wildlife and surroundings. Skillfully, he drove us through sometimes challenging terrain to offer us the best views not only of the "Big Five". Additionally, he ensured our safety and well-being, providing us with fresh, sometimes warm picnics every day.

Our accommodations within the national park were comfortable and offered breathtaking views of the Serengeti. Each evening, we were treated to elaborate hospitality, with delicious and varied meals, and the staff was always friendly and accommodating.

Back in Moshi, we found luxurious accommodation with a view of Mount Kilimanjaro at the Pink Flamingo Hotel. Our spontaneous decision to embark on further excursions at the foothills of Kilimanjaro from there was effortlessly organized and professionally guided once again. Our highlight was the "Coffee Tour". We experienced from bloom to coffee powder how the "Arabica" ends up in our cups. Since then, we've been reconsidering our morning coffee routine - except we don't manage to sing and dance in the morning as we were shown 😊.

The last leg of the journey took us to Zanzibar, where our flight, reception, and hotel were already arranged by Eric, Dorcas, and their team. We met Estonia and Abdul the following day, with the latter guiding us through the history of Stonetown and Prison Island - a tour worth taking!

With Esto, we traveled to the east of Zanzibar to Paje, making a stop at one of the numerous Spice Farms - naturally, we had the best one! Mr. Spice showed us spices and plants that we often only know processed at home - what a difference! We got to taste how they impact the food as well: once again, a delicious lunch freshly prepared for us.

We enjoyed the last days of our stay in paradise: Ndame Paje Hotel, right by the sea with an infinity pool and gastronomy that left nothing to be desired.

All in all, it was a perfectly organized trip that exceeded our expectations. The communication before the trip was clear and efficient; the agency patiently answered all our questions and accommodated our requests, making us feel well taken care of before our arrival.

Special thanks to Dorcas, who was always available to us, Emmanuel, Esto, Abdul, and of course, the boss, Eric. We wholeheartedly recommend Joining Safari LTD and look forward to returning one day!

We had a amazing Safari with our guide Emmanuel and our chef (also Emmanuel).
We did 3 nights and 4 days in Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro which was perfectly organised by the owner (Erick). Our guide came to us the evening before the pickup to give us all the information. Throughout the whole trip he was really kind and knew a lot about the nationalparks and the animals. Water and fresh cooked meals were included and we enjoyed our nights at two camps and one lodge. We could ask our guide about anything and he always looked after us so we felt really Safe and Secure.
He knew all the spots for the animals, and very often we were the first ones at the scene. He also knew exactly how to Place the car for the best views and shots.

I booked a Safari with JSL two times and Both Trips were amazing experiences! Erick is very easy to communicate with, especially regarding the planning. He adapted to our wishes, so we could extend the 4 day Trip in Tarangire - Setengeti - Ngorongoro to 5 days without any issue. The trips were just amazing, especially our guides on both times. The Food by our chef was also very good every day, with several options.
We saw every Animal possible, learned a lot and could easily suggest looking for certain animals with our guides, who tried to give us the best experience possible. We could choose our preferences for accomodations, where we had tents (more adventurous experience) as well as very cozy lodges.
All in all I can really recommend Joining Safaris and I would book there again if I‘d go again!

We recently went on a six-day safari with "Joining Safaris" and it was an experience we'll never forget. Our guide, Sabas, made the trip truly exceptional. As a young local from Moshi who has worked his way up to becoming a safari guide, Sabas's passion and knowledge about the wildlife and areas we visited were impressive. We explored Tarangire National Park, Lake Natron, a Maasai Boma, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Manyara. The opportunity to see such a diverse range of animals in their natural habitats was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

What made Sabas stand out was not just his driving skills, which were both quick and safe, but also his incredible connections and popularity among other drivers. Thanks to his well-established network, we were constantly in the know about where to find the most special animals during our game drives. Despite being early in his career, Sabas displayed remarkable expertise in animal behavior and navigation.

The care Sabas took to ensure we had a perfect trip was beyond what we could have asked for. It's clear he's not just doing a job; he's pursuing his passion, and that made our safari adventure all the more memorable. I highly recommend "Joining Safaris" and especially Sabas if you're looking for a safari that's both exciting and personal.

My friends and I had an amazing time on our safari! it was completely customised for our time frame and all the places we wanted to go. Joining Safaris even organized our airport transport and recommended hotels and things to do once our safari was over. Our tour included food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), drinks (including alcohol), and sleeping arrangements (all had bed frames and showers). Our guides name was Benson and he was so knowledgeable and helpful! He made sure to keep the cooler stocked with our favorite drinks and asked all of us our favorite animals so that he could personalize our tour. I never imagined such incredible people, service, and experiences. I am recommending this company to anyone who will listen. We were able to see elephants, giraffes, baboons, buffalo, bucks, lions, cheetahs, a leopard, impala, hyena, hippos, rhino, wildebeest, and a lot of birds (Benson's favorite). Thank you Joining Safaris! Say hi to all my friends when I send them over!

Excellent experience both on safari and backpacking trip (mt meru). Erick is professional and easy to work with.

I did a 4 day safari with Emmanuel and he was OUTSTANDING. We saw EVERYTHING. He clearly has a good relationship with other guides and park rangers. He was kind and accommodating and handled everything with grace.

I was guided by Amadeus for a 3 day trip on Mt. Meru and a 1 day Kilimanjaro tour. We all absolutely loved him! He has the positive energy, encouragement, and support you NEED on these type of hikes. I felt at ease working with him and he handled EVERYTHING so all I had to do was climb (no thinking required). He was prepared for each and every possible challenge - he literally brought extras of everything you could imagine (and group members needed it!).

I could not recommend either of these guides with more praise! Excellent
