I’d love to start off this review by saying that there aren’t enough stars on tripadvisor to give Amani Afrika justice. We LOVED them. My 11 year old son and I both hiked all of the way up to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in March 2013. Temba’s crew was concerned about our safety and health at all times, and helped us feel safe and secure throughout the ascent and descent.
We would like to recommend Amani Afrika to anyone who wants a reliable, locally owned company and excellent service with personal touch. Temba is well known for his community involvement and charitable work for Arusha’s children. He worked with me on our safari itinerary patiently answering endless questions, balancing our dreams with our limited budget. No request was denied!
The best thing about this safari was that it was so personal. As two young girls travelling on our own to Tanzania, we felt very safe in the hands of Amani Afrika. Temba made sure that we were well looked after. He was there to pick us up in his car when our bus arrived in Arusha! Temba then took us to the door of our hotel, and made sure we had everything we needed before he said goodbye!
After requesting proposals from probably 9 or 10 tour operators, Amani Afrika really stood out with a detailed thoughtful proposal and have been extremely helpful about answering questions. I like the idea of their being continuity and of corresponding directly with the owner who will actually be directly involved in making sure our safari experience goes perfectly.
