The safari was excellent. We had an excellent time and no one in Dar Es Salaam believed that we could do it that cheap. Yet the food, the guide and the general atmosphere of the Safari was enjoyable and informative. We saw every animal you can imagine and drove through some of the most beautiful scenary I have ever seen. I will recommend Von Decken to everyone I meet.

Thanks for all of your help and please say hi to Mickey and Rama for me.

In March/April 2006 we were on safaris With Von Der Decken Safaris: Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater in north, both with a lot of all kind of animals and the services in top. We overnights in camps in a very nice tent, bringing our own cook, who served the most delicius meals. We enjoyed the nights of Africa with all the sounds from the animals, the total darkness, the stars and the moon very much. Very romantic.

A week later we went to the south, visited some beautiful nature/culture in the area of Mbeya and Ruaha National Park on the way back to Dar Es Salaam. Again everything was first class. It was a long trip, but the jeep and the driver was a perfect couple. In Ruaha we were staying in a camp with bandas. Again we saw a lot of animals, specialy a very big hippo, our neighbour, became our friend.

The price for all that experiences was fair, and the atmosphere was very kind and calm. In the programme there was room to relaxe too. Our best recommendation to the Von Der Decken Safaris is, that we already have ordered the next Safari: To Selous in June this year.

Our warmest recomendation

If you want to go on a safari which brings you close to the splendid wildlife of Tanzania without interfering with nature then choose Von Der Decken Safaris. We went to Ruaha National Park in january 2007 for a four day trip (driving from Dar) and the Von Der Decken-guide used his local knowledge and skill to show us a great time in one of the more overlooked national parks of Tanzania. Furthermore the cooking inside the national park (Von Der Decken Safaris provided our own chef) was surprisingly good considering the meals were being prepared on a small fire. Our safari guide spoke excellent english and his good communication skills together with a high priority on safety gave us the best possible introduction to Tanzania.

Have a nice trip,

We would like to say thank you for your hospitality in our 6 day safari. All your arrangement was so perfect that we all back home with happiness and memories. Really hope that we got another chance to join you and your teams again.

Attached with our photos and one of them is Leopard which we saw in Serengeti. It is so beautiful and we would like to share with you.

from all our best regards,

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the safari. Everything was arranged perfectly and I already recommended your company to two other people.


I would highly recommend booking your safari trip with Von Der Decken Safaris. We had an excellent trip. We did the 3 day camp safari in the Northern Circuit. We spend the first day in Tarangire, the next in Lake Manyara and the last day in Ngoro Goro. All the parks were very diversified naturewise and some of the most beautiful nature I have ever seen. On our 3 day trip we saw a lot of different wildlife including the big 5! Our guide was excellent. He was very informative and told us a lot about the different habits of all the animals we came across. The campsites were great and even though we slept in small tents we felt safe the whole time. The cook Hamisi made delicious food and when we got back from our day trips there were always hot drinks waiting for us. It does get a bit cold at night - so remember to bring warm clothes. I am planning on doing the Southern Circuit the next time I come back to Tanzania and Will definitely book through Von Der Decken Safaris again.

Thank you for an excellent safari!

Travelling with Von Der Decken Safaris was an experience of a lifetime! I never thought my trip to Tanzania would be so enjoyable, enriching and fun!
One thing that struck me in Tanzania was the countrys beauty and its vastness. The landscapes differ remarkably from each other and you can expect scenic splendour wherever you go. Spotting wild game like giraffes, elephants and buffalos from the rooftop of a 4x4 is a thrilling experience that is difficult to match - especially if you happen to come across naughty lions on honeymoon.
Our guides were experienced, professional and they went at length to make sure that we felt safe and had a good time throughout the 8 days that we spent with them. Not only that, they taught us countless and valuable things about Tanzanian culture and ways of life. They told us heartfelt and exciting stories around the camp fire late into the night and they managed to include a great deal more than stated in the original itinerary: People, places and experiences that have left a lasting impression on me.
I can sincerely recommend Von Der Decken Safaris to everyone. From the moment you are greeted till the moment you say goodbye you are taken care of in an impeccable manner. If you happen to encounter any sort of problem it is taken care of, swiftly and easy. Even if the problem seems to be your sweet tooth craving the sweet juices of a sugar cane. What happens? Fifteen minutes later the 4x4 is loaded with sugar canes! That is luxury, but the sort of luxury money can not buy.
A big thank you to Von Der Decken Safaris, and an even bigger thank you to our guides.
Nipe tano!

My friend and I had an unforgettable trip in October 2011 with Von der Decken Safaris. We visited Morogoro town, hiked Uluguru Mountain and were on safaris in Mikumi National Park and Selous Game Reserve. We saw a lot animals, including elephants, lions, hippos, zebraers and lots of giraffes. And all of them extremely close up! Driving around the parks in a very cool car, we enjoyed the great scenery that varied a lot from park to park. We stayed in charming bandas, with animal noises at night and overlooking the river or the savannah during the day, beautiful!
Our two wonderful guides, Chris and Michael, were incredibly knowledgeable of the animals and nature that we met with on the safari, but they also taught us a lot about the life in Tanzania. In Morogoro town our guider took us to the market and showed us around town, a tour of lots of laughs and conversations with the local people, what a great day! Throughout the trip, Chris and Michael, ensured that we got to experience as much of Tanzania as possible and we are very grateful for that!
Driving from one park to another park can be a long trip, but it does not matter your guides tells you about all the things you pass on the way and once in a while play a bit of Tanzanian Bongo Music!
We experienced so much more than what we had expected and we had the time of our life! We warmly recommend Von der Decken Safaris to anybody that wants an unforgettable trip. And we are certain that we will be returning soon!
