We chose Tazama Holidays for taking care of our honeymoon and dream trip to Kenya, first because of the company’s great reviews; second because of the always open and reassuring conversations with Anthony, the owner; third because of the fair quote he gave us for a 13-day Safari trip. I have to say that it wasn’t easy to put my honeymoon in the hands of somebody I had never seen, since we are used to always planning every small detail of our trips ourselves. But oh my, I don’t regret I booked my dream trip (of which I have been dreaming about since I’m 13 years’ old) with Tazama.

Following Anthony’s expertise, we decided to do Samburu, Olpejeta Conservancy, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Amboseli and Tsavo West.
Anthony made sure that we had comfortable and beautiful hotels, to which we were always excited to go back to at the end of the game drives. We couldn’t believe the quality of the hotels. He also made sure we had a honeymoon treatment in every new destination, meaning we received many loving surprises in the hotels, from wine bottles to beds covered in roses. He also organized the most amazing sundown at a conservancy in Masai Mara, knowing that we were dying to book a sundowner!
We were lucky enough to also have Anthony as our guide and driver. He conducted us in safety through rough roads, mud and water. Considering the condition of some roads inside and outside the parks (it rained quite a bit through some days), we were impressed how he always kept the car so clean for us everyday.

Anthony is also an excellent certified guide, whose knowledge and patience earned us the most memorable moments! In Samburu, for example, while other cars left, Anthony insisted we stayed with a seemingly sleeping leopard. I don’t know how he does it, but it’s like he knew something would happen. A few minutes later, we saw the leopard roar and attack a dik dik! We were the only ones who witnessed that on that day. Other amazing moments: we watched lionesses communicate, elephants having a mud bath, a buffalo challenge lions’ territory, the five famous cheetah “brothers” of Masai Mara hunt, elephants trumpeting, a leopard on top of a tree eating a kill, hippos playing, baby cheetahs and the cutest baby leopard!

Anthony’s expertise of the animals will also give you the best views to the animals. It’s like he knows their next steps, and he positions the car in a way that, at first, might not make sense, but then you get marveled that the animals cross right in front of you or pass by just next to you. That’s called a guide’s experience.
Anthony is very committed to his job, and you can see in details that he is just not doing a job, he WANTS us to have the best experience we can have, and he always does his best for it. For example, we were so impressed when, in Tsavo West, he called our room in the hotel to rush us to the car to go see a leopard with a kill up on a tree. This was around 2pm and we only had a scheduled game drive for 4pm. We stayed with the leopard for about 30 min, and we still did the normal game drive at 4. Anthony didn’t want us to miss on anything. Many times he would hear something on the radio and rush for us to see something amazing, no matter how far.

Apart from being an amazing guide, who taught us so much during the whole trip about animal behavior, curiosities, and life in Kenya, Anthony is an amazing human being. You can see it in the way that he helps other drivers, and cares about the tourists in other cars, always making sure no tourists’ views were blocked and placing the car in a way that we could have the best views as well as others around us. When my husband fell ill towards the end of the trip, Anthony also made sure he was given the medical attention he needed, and made himself available for us 24/7. He also constantly asked about how my foot was doing, since I stepped on a needle plant on the first day of our vacation.
A tip for other travelers: book directly with the company. I know it’s scary to send money to another country, to somebody you don’t know. We were a bit scared at first too, but everything worked great!
I can’t wait for our next vacations with Tazama Holidays (the company covers other African countries as well!). Thank you, Anthony, for making this the trip of our lives.

Safari 2 with Anthony!

2 nights – olpejeta conservancy (sweetwaters tented camp)
2 nights Lake Nakuru national park(Sarova lion hill lodge)
3 nights ‪Maasai Mara national reserve(Entim Mara camp)‬

This is our second safari with Tazama Africa Holidays.

Last year we did a long safari with Anthony and enjoyed it so much we returned this year.

As usual, setting up the safari
with Anthony is so easy and efficient.
He responds within minutes to each email and immediately to all calls. He personalizes the safari to our desires. We always wire the money and have no angst about doing it this way, as he is so responsible, trustworthy and genuine!

Together with Anthony, we decide daily about the itinerary. It works well this way. If we want more or less time for the game drives, he willingly gives us what we want.

All of our accommodations have been very comfortable. From the tented sites to the lion hill lodge, we have never had a problem. The staff at all these places were helpful, friendly and eager to assist in any way. The food was delicious; fresh fruits, lots of veggies and too many other options!

What I really want to stress about taking a safari with Tazama Africa Holidays and Anthony Gitau is more about the personal attention he pays to his clients and his super qualities as a person and businessman. Anthony is easy to speak with, honest, flexible, always full of energy, knowledgable and respectful to the environment and the animals. He is prompt, sticks by EVERYTHING he promises, always has a comfortable and clean vehicle, and will fix any issue that is brought to him.
I admire Anthony for his passion of his business , moreover his dedication to his clients. We will no doubt do a third, fourth, etc with him. It is always a joyous time !
Thanks Anthony, AGAIN!
