Roys created a stress-free, complete safari for a friend and myself. Excellent communication prior to our safari to determine our interests, giving us input to activities available, creating an itinerary, and adjusting the itinerary as needed to fit our desires and schedule. A private safari such as this one offers individual attention and the ability to view wildlife on one's... More

My husband and I just returned from a 7 day, 6 night safari. We were amazed by our time there and could not have been more pleased with the level of service provided to us by Roy Safaris. Friends of ours had done a similar tour just a few month previous to us and convinced us we had to go.... More

We were extremely pleased with Roy Safaris. Our guide, Charles, was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. He added a lot to the experience and his efforts allowed us to see everything we were hoping to see.

This company pays attention to details. They pick you up at the airport and drop you off when you are finished. They own, arguably, the best hotel in Arusha (African Tulip) and you can do your interim lodging there. We had private car and driver which is par for this company. The land cruiser was a bit dated but built... More

This is my second time with Roy Safari. I was so impressed with them on my first safari I had to come back. Susan Wood with A-Way-To-Africa Safaris did an awesome job of custom tailoring a safari my handicapped mother could enjoy. She addressed all of our concerns and was so informative and helpful with any questions we had. The... More

We contacted several companies for a safari before deciding to go with Roy Safaris and have no regrets. Our guide Thomas was great at spotting wildlife (a lot of "how on earth did you spot that" moments) and very knowledgeable about both the animals and culture. With 18+ years of experience, he really made our trip and made us feel... More

We booked an 11-day safari in Northern Tanzania with Roy’s Safaris, and they were fantastic. We are biologists interested in birds, and we were looking for a general wildlife tour that also included some birding. We requested a guide knowledgeable about birds in Tanzania, and Roy’s really came through. Our guide, Allen, was a true professional. He not only knew... More
