“Alym and his team from East Africa Wild were just Awesome. I would give them 10 stars if i could. He helped us plan an 18 day trip which included, The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to hike in and see the gorillas. Next we went to Tanzania and stayed in three different camps. One of those camps was located near the entrance of the Ngorongoro Crater.
We spent 10 days on Safari at these three camps. We saw so many animals, we saw wildebeest migration, lots of lions, elephants giraffes zebras, the list of animals just keeps going on. All the camps were wonderful and the service was outstanding.
Alym did a lot of work putting this trip together. One day we had a flight get delayed by 8 hours. Alym had contacted us about the delay and already arranged a driver for us to take us around the area to explore so we didn’t have to sit in an airport all day.
After the safaris, we flew to Victoria Falls for three days. We had a wonderful time and one last safari, half on land and half on the water in Chobe River.
We had high expectations and the everything on this trip exceeded our expectations. This was going to be be a once in a lifetime trip but we had so much fun, we plan on contacting East Africa Wild to book another trip in a few years.”
“We booked a trip to Kenya and Tanzania for our family. It was a multigenerational trip with ages ranging from 5 years to almost 80. It was by far one of the best trips we have ever taken. Every detail was looked into, the arrangements were exceptional and the service was outstanding.”
“We recently took an incredible trip to Africa that was organized by East Africa Wild. In short, Alym and his team delivered an experience that far exceeded our expectations - which is saying a lot since we went with high expectations because we knew others who had used and recommended East Africa Wild, and we were already very impressed with Alym and his process of planning a unique trip for our group of 6.
Our Tanzania safari experience was truly unforgettable - we were able to see incredible wildlife up close and personal, including lions, elephants, giraffes, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos, and so many more - not to mention all of the different birds and plant life. Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced, with an unbelievable eye for spotting wildlife, enabling us to witness all of the beauty that Africa has to offer. He was also a wealth of knowledge about plants, animals, and East Africa. His passion for wildlife and conservation was infectious, and we all left the trip feeling inspired and enlightened.
The accommodations were exceptional as well. We stayed in unique and luxurious lodges and tent camps that were not only exceptionally comfortable but had awesome views. The tent camps - Treetops Tarangire, Lake Masek Tented Lodge, Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge - were spectacular. Waking up to the view of Ngorongoro Crater is unforgettable. And without exception, the service was great and the meals were delicious, abundant, and varied in all accommodations.
We had been told of the warmth and hospitality of the people of northern Tanzania, and found that to be very true. Wherever we went, we were always warmly welcomed and treated great by everybody.
Overall, the trip organized and delivered by Alym and his team was nothing short of amazing. We also spent a couple of days at a Maasai Lodge, did a one-day hike on Kilimanjaro, and enjoyed the beach and beauty of Zanzibar - all great experiences. Every aspect of the journey was carefully planned and executed flawlessly, and the experience far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend East Africa Wild to anyone looking for an unforgettable African adventure.”
“We contacted Sakshi for our Honeymoon and it was an absolute delight.
From Day 1 we were given a very personalized welcome, and care, and booked in luxurious Hotels throughout Tanzania and Zanzibar.
Regarding the safari, our driver cum guide Hassan was highly experienced and he did a great job and made the entire 5 days of Safari a very comfortable and loving experience.
Due to his vigilance, we were able to see innumerable amount of wildlife, flora, and fauna.
If we had any issues Sakshi was available on whatsapp 24/7 and took care of it immediately.
We would like to thank you guys for making our Honeymoon so memorable and special. Africa would not have been the same for us if it wasn't for you guys.
We can't wait to make another visit and would recommend you guys 100% if you are planning a trip to Africa!”
Dear Chinmay & Avni,
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us a 5-Star review! We take pride in knowing our clients are happy with their experience. We are pleased you had a wonderful safari and saw plenty of wildlife. We are delighted to have been able to organise your honeymoon.
We hope to host you both again on another adventure in the near future!
“We would highly recommend East Africa Wild for Tanzania and Kenya. Usually, as travellers, we prefer to plan our own itinerary, do our own bookings for hotels and tours etc; but early into our research, we realised that Africa is best done with a local travel agent. And so started our search for a good travel agent. We were a family of 6 [fussy travellers] on the holiday and were looking for a travel agent who would offer a more personalised itinerary as opposed to a travel agent (though highly rated/reviewed) who has a fixed itinerary that you have to largely follow.
East Africa Wild came strongly recommended to us by our friends who used them for their holiday to Tanzania and Kenya. In our first call with Sakshi and Alym, we knew East Africa Wild is what we were looking for. Both Sakshi and Alym, having lived in Tanzania and Kenya and being wildlife enthusiasts themselves, are highly knowledgeable. We were conflicted between Mara and the Serengeti; Mara being the more popular choice. Sakshi persuaded us to spend more time in the Serengeti- and we were so glad we went by her advice and not by what we saw on Instagram!
The itinerary planned by East Africa Wild was well thought of- given the time of the year we were going. Even though we were travelling at the end of October, Sakshi advised us to travel to the north of Serengeti where we could (if we were lucky) see the last of the river crossing- and we did!
All the lodges that we stayed at exceeded our expectations. Perhaps the only time you will see zebras and giraffes from your bed. Our tents were very comfortable with everything that you would want- luxurious without being too luxurious!
The safaris were of course the highlight of the holiday. While everybody likes a relaxed start in the morning on a holiday, it is best to start early. We had very comfortable jeeps, which were equipped with a freezer (lots of water and cold drinks) and binoculars. We saw all the Big Five- and in abundance! A big credit for our most enjoyable safaris also goes to our local guides/drivers- Hussaini and Suleimani who travelled with us for the 7 days we were in Serengeti. Their knowledge of the Park, the wildlife, and the landscape was extraordinary.
We can't recommend East Africa Wild enough.”
Thank you for your very kind words. We are very glad to have organised this safari for you and the family.
We aim to keep walking the extra mile and exceeding our client's expectations.
We hope to host you all again on another adventure in the near future!

“It was everything we thought Africa should be. Amazing, incredible, beyond belief...
Alym and his staff went above and beyond. We never worried about anything, there was always
someone there to pick us up and take us to the next destination. His manager in Nairobi, Silvia, was always calling to make sure we were okay the whole trip. A PERFECT bucket list adventure...”
“We had a great time in Kenya, Tanzania,Zimbabwe and Botswana. Had lots of game activities like balloon safari, boating etc. saw lots of animals and the migration. The food, accommodation and services are very good 👍. Transportations were well connected. Highly recommended. Cindy”
“I'm an experienced travel planner and have planned countless trips for myself all our Europe, Asia and the Middle East. When I started planning my trip to Africa I knew almost immediately I was in over my head. I did some quick research and came across East Africa Wild thanks to a Women's travel FB page I follow.
I am so glad I found Alym. After telling him what my budget was, how long I wanted to go and what I wanted to see he put together a wonderful trip for my husband and me. It was so easy, I reviewed the plans and hotels and didn't want to change a thing! Then Covid happened and our trip got postponed, twice, and the second time my dates had to change. I can't even imagine the kind of headache it would have been for me to try and change everything on my own.
We finally made it to Africa and it was beyond all expectations. I didn't have to worry about a thing, everything was taken care of and everything was executed seamlessly. We had to transfer from Kenya over to Tanzania and I had read that it could be difficult but Alym arranged for a driver to drive us over the border and walk us thru the whole thing it took about 10 minutes and we were thru. Alym and his team were constantly calling our drivers to make sure everything was going as planned and we were doing ok.
This trip was a dream come true. You will not regret going thru East Africa Wild to plan your trip. I already am planning on going back and going thru Alym again!”
“I normally don’t write reviews. But I really feel like I need to. We were two single ladies traveling and we had a blast. Everything was planned so perfectly and smoothly, I am considering booking another vacation with them. John, Usiah, Sylvia, Veronica!!! Usiah has the best eyes spotting lions from 200yards away. They all contributed to the most beautiful visit of Uganda and Tanzania.”
“We booked our safari with Alym and his team. He was responsive throughout and ensured that everything was properly planned out. He was also available when we needed him during the trip. We had an experienced guide who was able to show us a lot of animals.
We choose to go on a safari for a road trip and we definitely have a safari bug in us now. We can’t wait to go again as it is once in a lifetime trip. Alym is personal and definitely recommended. Until next time!”
“My East Africa Wild Adventure was something that most people dream of, including me.
I felt intrepid on the game drives but always felt safe. The food was plentiful and great tasting.
ALL of the staff at each lodge I met were friendly, encouraging, and helpful.
Definitely would recommend EAWA for an African Safari. Oh, BTW all the staff at EAWA were outstanding; they wanted me to be happy and I was. My guides were knowledgeable and were able to arrange some little additional highlights,
I petted a rhino! My next safari will definitely be with EAWA. Laura”
“This whole trip was even more than we expected. We had literally not a thing to worry about. It was a blend of animals and culture. We described our trip as 5 star luxury rustic. We have told so many friends about this company. Can’t wait to go again one day. Amazing!!! Everything was absolutely amazing.”
“Wow! We recently returned home from a 3 week trip to Kenya and Tanzania organized by Alym for me, my husband and one other couple. It was beyond amazing!!! Alym and his crew took care of us every single step of the way! Our 3 weeks went by without a single glitch and we were well taken care of by our guides (Peter, Banard and Usiah) and our concierge (Sylvia). Our accommodations exceeded our expectations and our experiences were actually so amazing that it is hard to put into words. The animal viewing, the people, the scenery, - I am still processing it! I highly recommend this company and thank you Alym for a trip of a lifetime!”
“I don’t know where to even start. Africa has long been part of my bucket list for years now. I started researching and planning approx. 2 years prior to taking the trip. I was looking for a luxury safari experience but on a middle-class salary lol. Let me say that some companies turned me away due to my budget and what I was looking for in experience. When I came across Alym from East Africa Wild Adventure Safari at the beginning of Covid, he explained to me that he could work with my budget until we were both confident of finding the trip of my dreams. Alym was so patient with me and my requests, so patient that it took 14 proposals ( 14 proposals due to my pickiness lol) before we were both confident we had the trip I was hoping for. But Alym’s patience did not end there. With Covid, we of course had many concerns and questions, and travel does not come without new obstacles. Alym patiently met with us multiple times over zoom to discuss all aspects of our trip such as tipping, currency, immunizations, Covid swabs, entry visas etc. It seemed too good to be true. Once on safari, not only did everything go off without a hitch, but Alym and his ground manager in Kenya, Silvia, were constantly available for calls and messaging to guide us should we have any further questions. I shopped around a lot before meeting Alym from East Africa Wild, and I can guarantee you that you will not be disappointed with this company and its staff. We did not have to think once we set foot on our plane, we literally only had to enjoy the experience, and what an experience it was. It far exceeded any expectations I had, the lodging, the food, the adventure, the people. We also were never without support or left alone to navigate the unfamiliar on our own. There was always a driver waiting, security etc, never did we ever feel unsafe or unsure of what was next on our agenda. Africa is utterly amazing, and I can credit our experience to Alym and his staff for meeting every one of our desires, hopes, and for giving input into things we should try or see, and when a flight was delayed at no fault of East Africa Wild, Alym stepped in and got us a day room at the airport hotel to relax while we waited on our new flight. It was not lost on our group that this was definitely a step up and above what was expected. I cannot say enough about this amazing company, I know you will not be disappointed in any part of Africa and working with this incredible company!!!”
“Every minute detail was taken care of and I felt so pampered and relaxed. They took care of all our drop offs and pick ups and COVID tests and guided us through visas. Alym was so great to work with and so attentive to detail. He and his staff were always a text away to answer our questions. The camps were top notch and the food was amazing. Everything exceeded my expectations. Love Kenya!!! Best adventure of my life!!!”
“From the moment that we first submitted the online inquiry to the moment we were dropped off in Dar Es Salaam for our final flight, we felt so well supported. Alym helped plan our 2 week gorilla trek in Uganda, safari in Tanzania, and beach getaway in Zanzibar. We've been back for 2 weeks now and are already thinking about our next trip because it was truly the most incredible vacation! Alym made himself available to us whenever we had questions leading up to and during the trip (and we had a lot of them). We were very nervous about going on this trip during a pandemic but Alym put our minds at ease before we left, and everything (every covid test that needed to be done) was coordinated on the ground when we arrived. Every guide that we had during our trip was amazing. Everyone cared so much for the animals and for the experience that we were going to have. Our guide for the safari, Usiah, was unbelievable!!! He was kind, patient, and so knowledgeable. He spotted animals unlike any other. We were lucky to see the Big Five and then some! Beyond just seeing the animals, we had a chance to watch them living in their habitat - mating, hunting etc. We have thousands of pictures from the trip and keep looking through them from time to time just to re-experience it. We couldn't imagine booking through another tour operator. THANK YOU East Africa Wild for everything!”
“My wife and I booked our honeymoon in Tanzania through East Africa Wild, amidst the pandemic and craziness happening in the world, and could not have been more satisfied.
Alym and his partners took very good care of us. They were always available to answer questions and help us feel comfortable, before and throughout our trip. The attentiveness to our concerns could not have been better.
We stayed 6 nights in Tanzania - one night in Arusha, one in Tarangire, two in the Serengeti, and one at the Ngorongoro crater. The hotel and lodges met or exceeded our expectations (especially Maramboi). Our driver was fun, friendly, patient, and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and vegetation. We saw everything: big 5, big cats, Rhinos, and more. The experiences were incredible!
Our itinerary was custom built and perfect for us. It considered everything from dates, lodges/camps, routes, expectations, and more; It was truly a personal experience. We then checked very similar itineraries against competitors (e.g. big name companies and local operators) and East Africa Wild provided better service and better value for money (before booking the trip). Now, after the honeymoon, we can also confidently say that we were NOT let down by the quality either. Our guide, our accommodation, our welcoming, our farewell, every detail, was met or exceeded expectations.
We highly recommend working with East Africa Wild to have your dream safari come true.
Finally, while in Tanzania, COVID-19 was among the least of our concerns. There is as much or more of a risk at home than any of the lodges or camps we stayed at.
Thanks Alym, Hasan, and the rest of the East Africa Wild team.”
“We had dreamed of an African wildlife safari for several years. We decided during the Covid travel shutdown to begin to plan for when things reopened. We went back and forth many times with Alym, and got our itinerary to where we wanted- with Alym providing incredible advice along the way. By the time we had settled on an itinerary, the countries we wanted to visit (Uganda & Tanzania) were permitting visitors - with testing and screening protocols. once we were vaccinated we decided to “go for it” as we felt the following year would be inundated with tourists. Alym was encouraging, and ensured that we were able to meet the requirements of each country. Once we arrived, the team worked flawlessly, and we were treated to superior service and incedible courtesy. we had all necessary tests and documents for each part of our journey, and felt very safe travelling with our own driver to the various locations. It was easy to maintain distance and hygiene and all locations were very aware and compliant with standard Covid cleaning, masking and protocols. We are so glad we decided to travel now instead of waiting until things fully return to “normal” and dealt with the crowds. We saw everything we wanted to see and so much more that we never imagined. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and an incredible adventure.”
