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.
Many greetings from
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 had a fantastic time thanks for all your help with the planning and organising! loved every minute of the trip.
We will have to get saving so we can do another safari!
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
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.
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!
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!
