Vicent and crew made every aspect of the trip so comfortable - from making sure the cruisers were always stocked with bottles of water, to sharing stories about their lives, to making sure that every individual person in their cruiser got their chance to see the animals up close and get the pictures they wanted.

I felt confident that anything I needed, Vicent was super flexible and would do his best to accommodate me. Whether that was going all over town trying to get a new camera battery or always making sure there was plenty of water for the group, he always went the extra mile.The guides were so friendly, professional, informative and fun! I always felt safe and secure knowing that they were looking out for us. Our experience was so amazing, I can't imagine going with any other tour guide company as I now consider them family.
Shaydra E.
I loved how seamless everything went. All of our activities were planned and executed flawlessly and no one had to worry about anything but their own attitudes. Everything from the lodges, to our amazing drivers, to beautiful Tanzania itself, the trip was an experience of a lifetime and we were not disappointed!
Danielle F.
Originally, I was apprehensive about traveling to a location so far from home, and one so different than what I was used to in the States. After arrival, however, I realized I could breathe easy, as we were met by Vicent immediately, and all but pampered from that moment on.
Chris F.
Going on a safari had been a lifelong dream for me and my son. Vicent was more than we could have hoped for as a safari leader. He was open to all of our suggestions onplaces that we wanted to go and things that wanted to see. Every day was filled with long game drives, delicious meals and lots of fun! Vicent had a true understanding of all of the wildlife and the landscape and he was more than willing to answer all of our questions. He was so kind and patient and had a smile on his face every minute of every day. Vicent has a deep love for Tanzania and he wanted to share as much as he could with us. Our trip was unforgettable and the relationships that we built will last our-lifetimes. We are planning on going back to Tanzania and we will only call on Vicent to be our guide.
Caroline A.
I can't imagine a more gratifying and enriching experience with any other company. Be prepared to love your guides and want to spend time with them outside of the safari jeeps.
Chelsea C.
Vicent and his entire crew are so warm and welcoming, and they always anticipated our needs. In addition to lovely accommodations and wildly educational safari's, Vicent and his team made a point to always plan for the small things. While you're out having an adventure of a lifetime, you'll be completely safe and well taken care of. The people of Tanzania are wonderful and very welcoming, and the beauty of the country is something one must see for themselves. It's worth the trip!
Jenn M.
Absolutely we would recommend Makoye Safaris to everybody because the level of knowledge and service was above and beyond! The drivers shared their knowledge at every opportunity and always made for a fun time on our trips.

Vicent is so amazingly nice, organized, calming, and loving! His team took the time to make sure every place we went was inspiring. He was a shining light in our experience and I was so impressed by his business manner and professionalism!
