"Our safari to Tanzania through the auspices of Ombeni African Safaris was one of the most memorable vacations we ever had. The guides we had were professional, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and personable. We were more than satisfied with the services they provided. We were amazed at what we saw while on safari. We visited five national parks, and many other safari extensions like wildlife viewing was beyond our wildest imagination. We saw vast varieties of wildlife up close and personal. The accommodations at the lodges we stayed at were very good, and we enjoyed the food. We are extremely satisfied with our experience."

“Ombeni is a friendly and enthusiastic teacher who loves Africa and can help you fully understand nuances of culture and language. He will make your trip feel like you are visiting friends and family. I highly recommend Ombeni African Safaris. On our trip, it made a huge difference to have this introduction about safari extensions and our dream came true!”

"From the early stages of planning and booking the trek, to the very first steps I took, to the summit and back down again, I knew I was in good hands and enjoyed my experience entirely for the safari extensions, I've selected. The personal communication with Ombeni himself leading up to the trip was incredibly helpful, and the entire staff in Tanzania were phenomenal. They picked me up as scheduled from Arusha and the adventure began. I cannot praise my guide, Frankie, enough for his expert guidance and patience. He was incredibly knowledgeable about everything and always eager to answer my numerous questions. I am also very much appreciative of his concern for safety, and am happy to report that thanks in part to his guidance I was able to achieve my goal in a safe and healthy manner. I definitely recommend taking an extra day to acclimatize. Besides, why rush such an incredible experience? I was also pleasantly surprised with the food; I ate like a queen on the mountain and the meals exceeded my expectations. The personal touch of the entire safari extensions experience made all the difference to me, and I highly recommend Ombeni African Safaris to anyone looking for an amazing adventure in one of the most beautiful places on earth."

"Dear Friends, I wish to applaud all the people from Ombeni Africian Safaris!! Although I have never been on a safari before, I just can’t imagine a better trip. From the planning stages to the finish I always felt I was in the best hands. When we arrived in Tanzaniza we were greeted with our two drivers and for the whole 12 days we were never left without contacts if we needed anything. Our driver was the best!! Aimie (not sure of spelling) was the most thoughtful and considerate and wonderful man you could ever meet. He was very knowledgeable throughout the whole trip. We travelled for hours on many days and he always knew the best routes and also where to find the most animals. He was awesome at identifying wildlife, birds, landmarks and anything we needed to know. He was our greatest resource!! Not only did we see the Big 5, but we enjoyed a hot air balloon ride, a side trip to Zanzibar, and we stayed at a different resort almost every night with each one better than the last. And to make this trip even more special, the Ombeni Foundation sponsors a school. We made a special visit to the school and the children loved seeing us as much as we loved our visit to this remote location with hundreds of happy children. I would highly recommend Ombeni African Safaris to anyone that hopes to have the time of their life and not worry about anything while thousands of miles away from home at the best safari extensions!! Sincerely, Chris, one happy traveler..."

"This was a trip beyond our wildest expectations. Ombeni Safaris provided us with a first-rate safari experience and excellent service. We visited Tarangire, Serengeti, Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and Arusha National Park. Our trip also included an unforgettable overnight at the Maasai Lodge and a few days in Zanzibar. Our safari was January 12-24, 2015, which proved to be an excellent time for wildlife viewing, road navigation (they were not muddy nor dusty), and uncrowded parks (not too many other visitors crowding the roads). Our guide, Aimi deserves special mention for his skill, knowledge and charisma. If you are considering an African safari and decide to book with Ombeni African Safaris, (which we HIGHLY recommend you do) you would do well to ask for Aimi's services as a guide. He is amazing and would greatly enhance your experience. Ombeni (who is from Arusha, Tanzania but lives in Wisconsin) worked throughout the planning process to communicate with us and to continually upgrade our lodgings and activities. He also quickly stepped in to go beyond what was expected in dealing with lost luggage and delayed flights (which were no fault of his). It is Ombeni's desire to make your safari experience meaningful, expansive, and culturally-rooted. Travelers with Ombeni might enjoy a visit to the school which he sponsors near Arusha. You will gain insight into the African educational system and you are sure to be warmly welcomed by hundreds of teeming students. No safari comes cheap but Ombeni worked to minimize expenses without sacrificing quality and, in general, the cost of working with him seems to be significantly lower than many other companies we researched. Traveling in East Africa can be challenging for western tourists but we always felt safe and well-oriented. We highly recommend traveling with Ombeni Safaris. Between interacting with the environment and experiencing local culture, we believe that your safari will be an unforgettable experience and that Ombeni will do everything he can to ensure that you come away amazed, deepened, and delighted."

"Thank you, Ben and your excellent staff, for helping us plan and enjoy a truly unforgettable trip. You were able to meet with us personally to plan our trip, customizing our vacation to adjust to our tight time schedule and our budget. We appreciated your thoughtful insight and recommendations on how to make the vacation run smoothly and how to maximize our time in Tanzania. Our guide, Ami, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and was easy to communicate with. We greatly enjoyed getting to know him and learning from him along the way. He was thoroughly prepared, even bringing along animal and bird books, and he was able to identify everything that we saw on safari. Ami had to work with our group of 6, which consisted of Grandma and Grandpa, us the parents , and our children (aged 9 and 11). Ami got to know each one of us individually and worked hard to keep everyone in our group happy. The safari vehicle was reliable and comfortable, which made viewing the wildlife an incredible experience. The trip to Zanzibar was a wonderful way to relax. Your staff took care of our needs providing us with tours of old Stone Town, prison island and a spice farm. Each guide we met was wonderful to work with and truly welcoming to our family. We also were able to experience so many things beyond the safari, such as taking a trip to a Maasai village, having dinner in a Tanzanian's house and shopping in a farmer's market. Being able to visit some of the organizations that the Ombeni foundation supports, such as the Nkoaranga orphanage, the Songoro Primary School, and the Angaza Church, were highlights of the trip. During our travels, if any problems would arise, you and your staff would promptly respond to the issue and figure out a solution. We always felt well taken care of. Before we left on this trip, we had some concerns about our safety and wondered whether we all would be comfortable traveling in this foreign land. We can now honestly report that this trip greatly exceeded our expectations! Thank you, Ben, and your staff, for making this a truly magical experience for our family. It was a joy and privilege to work with you. Brian, Tonya, Lydia and Elise Benz

Ben, Thank you so much! How very thoughtful of you! The safari was a highlight of my life. I was looking at pictures today. The driver was amazing, perfect, knowledgeable, interactive, thoughtful, personable, responsible, made me feel safe in every way. It was a fantastic experience. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone and your shirt will help me do that. The picture of the big jeep swallowing mud puddle our driver decided not to go through since we were mostly alone in the park and it was getting late. Always thinking of our safety..........He was a fabulous jeep eating pot hole negotiator, truly skilled, and what amazing machines, we are truly under utilizing them in the united states! My group and their families were trully impressed. I absolutely recommed anyone who is looking to travel to Africa to use Ombeni Safaris. it made a huge difference for us all. Thank you, Ben.

Ombeni African Safaris was very helpful in my trip to Africa, especially in Tanzania. They have wonderful tour guides, luxury cars, as well as all the services anyone would need to have. It was amazing how they received me and my family in Tanzania. I Climbed Mt-Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Manyara and Ngorongoro and Tarangire. We had the best experience that we could ever imagine. I would definitely recommend anyone travel with Ombeni African Safari and I met Ombeni in personal and he's is an amazing and helpful guy. Thank you Ombeni! Merchades
