Amazing Safari with Charles from Tanganyika Ancient Tours


Charles was so accommodating, starting with the planning for our two weeks together and planned with us, what we wanted to experience, both tent camping in the Serengeti to a nice lodge with a pool on top of the Ngorongoro Crater. One of my favorite moments was when elephants came right up to our tent in Tarangire National Park where we were staying in tented accommodations. We were a great group of friends, 6 adults and three kids, ages 8-12. Charles and his other guides were great with the kids and for those going as a family I can not recommend Tanganiyika Ancient Tours more. We spent most of our time in Tanzania but started in Kenya We ended our Safari in Zanzibar, snorkeling and enjoying the beautiful beaches.

Stupendous Serengeti experience

Charles from Tanganyika Ancient Tours went above and beyond in ensuring the trip was well curated, from the luxurious accommodation to the food served throughout the trip. Considering the isolated locations of the tent sites, we had all of the modern conveniences one could think of. Charles is an extremely considerate tour leader and his supporting staff of local guides were not only knowledgeable but were tireless in ensuring we saw as many of the Big Five as possible. Our guide, Joshua Thadeo, especially, made the trip memorable with hours and hours of daily driving and with his personal anecdotes.

Incredible safari experience with wonderful people

My friend and I booked a 5 day safari experience with Tanganyika Ancient Routes in late August based on recommendations from friends who had gone with Charles in the past, and we were blown away by the trip. Charles is a wonderful guide with vast knowledge of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro stemming from his upbringing in the area. We were able to visit parts of Ngorongoro Conservation Area that most tourists don't visit because of his familiarity with the area and local villages. We were able to see all the big game that we wanted, and the driver and cook were excellent partners in our safari experience. If you're looking for a high quality safari experience with wonderful guides, look no further. Would recommend to anyone, anytime.


Perfect for Photographers!

In August of this year, my friend and I were looking to do a 5 day trip visiting Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We had multiple friends who had previously traveled with Charles and his team at Tanganyika Ancient Routes. They spoke very highly of him and his team, and it was an easy decision to book our own trip with TAR. We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of our team and the fact that we had a driver, a guide, and an amazing cook. Many of the other groups we traveled alongside had one person who assumed all three roles. I would suspect that most tour groups (there are 100s) have similar safari itineraries. What we found though is that with TAR, we got a more personal experience, traveling off the beaten paths far from the major tourist traffic. With Charles’ upbringing in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, he and his team were able to bring us to remote areas to learn about the local culture and often be the only car around a group of lions, giraffes, elephants, etc. If you are interested in photography, I would definitely recommend this team. Prior to our trip, the TAR team had taken a group of National Geographic photographers through the parks. Charles and the other guides will go out of their way to find you the perfect shots. One of the attached pictures was the result of our driver perfectly timing a sunset after an action-packed day. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this group if you are planning a safari experience!!.


Serengeti safari with Tanganyika Ancient Routes

The trip was very well organised. We were traveling with a 4 year old and the organisers went to great extend to make sure all of us especially the 4 year old was comfortable. She still remembers all the animals she saw in the safari and her favourite is the Dik dik. The organiser also went out of their way to ensure saw all the animals we came to see especially the big 5. Some of them does require some pretty good tracking skills and patience to find. Overall a very memorable lifetime experience.
