The experience was simply great! It worth every single GBP we paid 🙂 All arrangements ran fantastically.

Below my comments on each stage of the trip which might support you:

Dar Es Salaam Transfer Airport: Rate 5 (best): Driver was there waiting though it took us around two hours to get our Visa 🙂 Very comfortable car and what is most important very friendly driver. On time pick up from Serena to the airport as well. Something i specially likes is that for both transfers was the same driver.

Dar Es Salaam: Serena hotel: rate 5. Very comfortable bed, room very clean and staff very friendly. A perfect place to spend one night after long trip. We asked the staff there in which of their restaurants their would suggest us to have dinner and they suggested Jahazi. For Fish and seafood lovers is awesome! Quality of food and service of the restaurant is great. Tip: The chef comes to the table before ordering. I suggest to ask her about her suggestions.

Ikuka safari Camp: Rate 5. Great room, great views, great and very friendly staff, great food!!!! Was all amazing. We did one day a cultural trip to the village and visited the school there. The trip (going and returning) took us the morning and afterwards we still did some Game view. the experience, mainly for somebody that wants to have a little bit of sense of true life, is highly recommended.

Mark, Chloe and Tanya have done a great job. We also spend a lot of time at the bar interacting with the staff (actually we were the first ones to arrive for a pre dinner drink and the last ones to leave after post dinner drink 🙂 ). This was a great opportunity for us to interact with people and get to learn more about the country, challenges, their views and also share opinions via very good talks 🙂

Coastal aviation flight: Rate 5: Flights were much better than expected 🙂

Xanadu Villas: Rate 5. Same than Ikuka. Great food, great place for a true relaxation, Great staff……. Except for a morning trip to Stone Town we spend the rest of time at Xanadu, walking on the beach and relaxing 🙂

Overall we had a truly magical time and really enjoyed ourselves.  Thanks for all your help in putting things together.

We can’t thank you enough.

As I said, we had a great time and would have no hesitation in recommending AO or using you again.

Thanks again for all your help.

Great trips thanks, very memorable, everything went to plan. We loved Kilindi, it was right up our street. It’s not the type of place for everyone but for us it was a very good fit. They could do with a touch up here and there on the property but the service was excellent as was the food and location. Mivumo also a good spot,  bit of a long run to the best game but well worth it. Mivumo do an excellent breakfast, dinner is a bit 1980s style but no complaints. Staff very accommodating and actually some nice wines included. No hot water on day one at Mivumo but they sorted by next day, also the hot tubs outside are not actually hot, they fill with cold water which is useless in the evening.


I’d give Kilindi 4.5 and Mivumo 4. The Serena hotel in Dar is bit average would give 3.5.


Thanks for handling the Zuri delays. When we walked past there seemed to be a lot of work on going.


Happy customers.

First, a great thank you to you and your team ! The whole trip was seamless, as were our previous trips with you, and anyone we met along the way has been so friendly and helpful.

I must congratulate you for working with partner organizations and individuals who are so dedicated to their guests well being.

Hey George,


We had a great experience with Duma and both places we stayed. I’d give everything a 5 out of 5. Couldn’t have asked for better food, accommodations or friendlier staff. Everything went smoothly and I honestly don’t think there is anything I would have changed. I also want to mention that we really enjoyed our guide, Banana. He did a great job and I would highly recommend anyone to use him in the future.


Thanks for everything,
