5days/4nights of amazing adventure with Roger and Mody. 10/10 We were a family group of 5 on a 4 nights/5 days camping safari with Nyange Adventures right before Christmas 2022. We were welcomed at our Hotel by our guide and driver Roger. He quickly showed how friendly and talented he was, and became part of the “Family”. The first day in Tarangire was extraordinary, and we already felt lucky with Rogers knowledge about the animals. We picked up our Chef Mody, who cooked delicious food throughout our safari. The safari in Serengeti was a highlight as we saw the big 5 right away. Roger has a keen eye for details that others might not notice, and guided us towards an amazing number of animals, birds and reptiles. The storytelling and facts about the different wildlife made the safari seven more special. While we had some bad luck with a small breakdown, Roger and Mody kept the spirits up and were quick to find solutions. At the campsites they were always available and became good friends. At our return to our hotel in Arusha, the manager mr. Nyange himself greeted us, and asked about our adventure with his talented staff. As sad we were to leave Roger and Mody, who we had become friends with through our safari, we were fond of the amazing memories we made. If you are thinking about going on a safari, trip or adventure around Arusha or Moshi, I can highly recommend Nyange adventures, and especially Roger and Mody, who were professional, welcoming, friendly and fun persons to be with.

Amazing experience I could not be happier with the service I received. Nyange adventure has a excellent staff, starting with Amina (sales coordinator), she was the first person that contacted me as soon as I asked for a request. After that, the communication has been great. I travelled alone and as a girl, I felt a little bit scared, but Amina made me feel secure all the time. The tour guide, Rogers, was great, he demonstrated how much he loves his job and how good professional he is. Finally, the cook, Moody, was great, he prepared amazing food an very plentiful all the time. I have no words to thank enough all Nyange Anventure staff for making my stay in Tanzania so amazing.

Great Safari Experience with Nyange Adventures. Highly Recommend! The whole experience was amazing. My second time with Nyange Adventures doing the Tarangine and Ngorongoro national parks Safaris. Picked up at Kili Airport and we drove to the first National Park. Spend the night at a beautiful resort with a great diner and the next morning went to Ngorongoro National park, which really is an extraordinary once in a lifetime experience. The tour company is very professional, plan according to your wishes and take good care of you throughout your stay with them. They go the extra mile to show you all the beautiful animals and share their knowledge with you. Even the lunchboxes were great! We had a wonderful time. Many thanks to our driver, Alan, and the whole Nyange Adventures team. I highly recommend.

Amazing skilled guides and very friendly. Perfect safari experience! My mother and I travelled with Ian as our guide and Godfrey joined the team as amazing cook. Ian went above and beyond to give us the best experience, has shared so much knowledge on wildlife, has respect for nature and was simply the best guide we ever had. He and Godfrey were helpful, very friendly and great company. We laughed a lot and we couldn't wish a better team to have this incredible experience with! Thank you guys! Also the owner, Praise, was very helpful with organising the covid test. All went smooth. Totally recommend this company.
Tansania Safari Die Safari war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis! Wir waren 5 Tage in Serengeti, Ngorongoro und Tarangire zusammen mit unserem Guide und unserem Koch. Die Campsites waren absolut ausreichend mit akzeptablen Sanitäranlagen. Wir mussten uns um nichts kümmern. Alles wurde uns organisiert und geplant. Wir durften nur geniessen. Leckeres Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen mit frischem und mehr als ausreichendem Essen und Trinken wurde uns immer zur Verfügung gestellt, sodass wir nie hungrig sein mussten. Unser Guide hat uns die ganze Reise begleitet, uns an alle Hotspots gebracht und sich sehr bemüht uns alles zu zeigen. Manchmal hätten wir uns mehr organisatorische Infos und etwas weniger Aufmerksamkeit seinerseits für sein Handy gewünscht. Man merkt jedoch, dass er sehr viel Wissen hat, alle Fragen jederzeit beantworten kann und er definitiv seine Arbeit gerne macht. Das Motto von Nyange Adventures „Come as a client-Leave as a friend“ ist wirklich sehr passend! Wir könnten Nyange Adventures nur empfehlen und wünschen jedem eine so tolle Erfahrung, wie wir sie machen durften.
Super safari! 4 dagen lang hebben wij een safari gehad die we nooit meer zullen vergeten. Samen met gids Roger van Nyange Adventures bezochten wij Tarangire, Ngorongoro en Serengeti. We genoten van de prachtige omgeving en wildlife. Roger wist ons allerlei nieuwe dingen te vertellen, beschikt over veel kennis en is erg enthousiast. De communicatie gedurende onze trip was perfect en we krijgen elke dag een duidelijke briefing van wat ons te wachten staat. Al met al enorm genoten, een aanrader.
