Gilmag Safaris is a tour company located in Arusha Tanzania with ground handling offices in Kenya and Rwanda. We specialize in wildlife Safaris, cultural tours, mountain hiking and beach holidays.
This was our first trip to Africa for our group of 42 people. Our agent from Armenia organized everything. Our safari started in Zanzibar, and then we took a flight to Kilimanjaro. We had an amazing experience that we will never forget. We visited Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Eyasi. The accommodations chosen by Gilmag Safaris were all superb, and a nice variety of styles from lodges to tented camps. Ngorongoro Coffee Lodge was our favourite. We spent two nights here and wished we had more. We were in a convoy of 7 vehicles, each vehicle having an English speaking guide and a Russian translator. Our guides Freddy and Ally were awesome. Thumbs up to Gilmag Safaris for the fabulous trip. We have recommended this company to our friends and most definitely they will be visiting soon. We will also come back.
My booking was done professionally and tailored to my preference and budget. A trip like this is a once in a life time experience and you want to make sure it is effected properly and stress free so you have time to enjoy the experience. Mary answered all our questions, explained interesting facts, made suggestions and gave good travel tips. 10 golden stars!!!
The lodges and camps booked were great, the food awesome and the wildlife viewing spectacular. Our tour guide, Gilbert was just beyond excellent. Besides being a very nice person, he did a great job. His passion showed through and made our safari a fabulous experience. We would definitely book another tour, particularly if Gilbert is our guide. Gilbert was not only very knowledgeable but also really funny and the tour was a definite highlight of our trip!! Traveling with Gilmag Safaris was the best decision we ever made. I highly recommend them.
This was our first time on safari. We were referred to Gilmag Safaris by our friends. Communication with Maguke was easy and we always got rapid response to all our questions. The planning and negotiating with places to stay, eat and tour were stellar. It was 5 stars on about every dimension you could imagine.
From our arrival in Tanzania to the last day, our guide, Nickson was excellent. Nickson was the best guide we could’ve asked for. He knew all of the national parks so well. He went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. We will never forget hunting with the Hadzabe Bushmen. This was an incredible experience.
In overall, we all had such a great time. It was an amazing experience! Thank you for everything you did to make our trip so enjoyable and easy. Those many months of pre-planning were so apparent in our daily schedule!
