Kilimanjaro + Safari with Leken Adventure!
5.0

I did the Machame Route up to the Kilimanjaro + a 7 days Safari with Leken Adventure.

I recommend this company to everyone who wants a personalized/private tour/trek at competitive rates.

Kilimanjaro Trek – The team going up the Kilimanjaro was very professional, the guides/assistant guides were 2 great knowledgeable/funny guys (trust me, I ask a lot of questions). They were always there to assist me. It was an amazing experience.

Safari – The Guide/driver was a great guy once again. He knew all the good spots. Was a memorable experience

Professional organization and amazing experience
5.0

Leken Adventure was excellent from start to finish. My father and I joined an open group to do the 7 Day Machame trek followed by a 6 day safari

When booking, Alex was very patient with our many questions and filled us in on at the info we needed.

On the trek, we had Bayo (lead guide), as well as leoans, Peter, and Fred (assistant guides) who were all superb. They really took care of us so that all we had to worry about was putting one foot in front of the other. Honestly the entire crew was amazing. The food was quite tasty, and there was always plenty of it (our cook David was called Mr Delicious for a reason). Everyone was always so happy and such a pleasure to be around, and it really felt genuine. It made trekking up a mountain feel that much easier. The crew would check on our health every day, twice per day, and make sure all was well. The summit night was definitely unpleasant, but the guides and a few porters were there to help us make the last push and we made it.

The safari was equally good. Our guide Karim was so good at finding animals, it was unbelievable. We got to see all big 5 and other rare sightings on top of that. The lodges we stayed at were all great as well.

Transport was taken care of every step of the way, even airport transfers.

I loved my experience with Leken Adventure, and would definitely consider them for any future trekking trips I might do.

Knowledgeable guide helped make our 8 Day Tanzania Safari memorable
5.0

We were picked up at Kilimanjaro Airport as planned and taken directly to Tulia Lodge in Arusha with no delays. Our driver/guide, Lazaro, was there on time to pick us up for the safari and delivered us back to the lodge at the end of the trip with lots of time to spare, no timeliness issues.

Lazaro was very knowledgeable about animals, birds, and vegetation. He was excellent – easygoing and friendly, I’d recommend Leken Adventure and him to others. He was also a good driver – necessary given unpredictable traffic and terrible roads in the parks. He had been guiding for about 15 years and was very experienced and knew all the routes in the parks; in all our travels (about 1700 km) he never referred to a map. The competence and personality of the driver/guide are critical to the enjoyment of the trip. We were lucky.

Our safari van was about 10 years old and had about 200,000 km on it. It had been well maintained, I think, since it stood up to the roads, absorbed most of the shocks, and didn’t break down.

Our Lodge in Arusha Tulia Lodge was comfortable, with a dining room, lounge and pool. Our room was fine, and the food was quite good. No problems with it.

The Maramboi tented camp was also very comfortable, even though our ‘room’ was a large tent with two rooms, Dependable running water and electricity in the tent/room. The main building included a lounge, large dining area (part inside but mostly outside on a large verandah). It even had a swimming pool which was good to cool off in, Very good food, with a large buffet selection at all meals. We also chose our own picnic lunch contents. Interesting to sit by the pool and watch the zebras and wildebeest herds grazing a hundred meters away. The camp, after all, was in a Conservation Area and thus opens to whatever wildlife ambled through. It was also well-patronized; most tables were taken at dinner times. In many ways, this camp combined comfort and wildlife authenticity best of all our accommodations.

 

The Lake Manyara Wildlife Safari Camp was a high end place. Guest rooms were separate buildings (not tents) joined by a garden-bordered walk to the main building. The latter featured a lounge and dining room with an extensive front garden that ended in a swimming pool that overlooked the Great Rift Valley and the Maasai herders who drove their cattle and goats up and down. This was a very luxurious place with an outstanding view. The other thing we noticed was that there was only one other paying guest. The place was empty. So that meant that we had no choice of dinner fare, but ate what the chef had prepared for us. We also accepted the chef’s choices for the contents of our picnic lunches. Fortunately, these choices were very good, although the portions were large.

The three tented camps (N’dutu, Seronera, and Ngorngoro) were all variations on a theme. In each, our accommodation was a two-room tent with wood floors, running water (most of the time) but no electrical capacity to plug in appliances. Each camp had a main dining tent with lounge (the latter equipped with electrical charging capacity). Each camp was staffed by a manager (who may also have been the chef – this wasn’t clear) as well as two or three support staff whose jobs included carrying suitcases, accompanying us after dark from our tent to the dining tent, etc. These were not permanent sites; the N’dutu camp, for example, was due to be taken down and moved to another location a few weeks after we were there.

Again, in each of the three camps we were the only guests! So no choice of meals or picnic basket contents; we ate what the chef prepared. Generally this was quite palatable, though we became a bit tired of the standard side vegetable of sliced carrots and green beans, which we had at almost every dinner. And again, significant to realize that we were in wildlife terrain, so the water buffalo, elephants, zebras and giraffes that moseyed through the camps were in their own environment. We were the outsiders.

Serengeti and Ngorongoro were the highlights. These were the must-sees, in our view, in terms of variety of animals, scenery, etc. (especially the rhinos). On these grounds, Tarangire would rank third, Lake Manyara fourth and Arusha fifth.

Amazing time in the Serengeti Tanzania
5.0

We had an amazing time in the Serengeti using the services of Leken Adventure. Great vehicle, they gave very good binoculars, the guide, George, was very nice and excellent driver.

The accommodation in the park was also fantastic, we stayed in Serengeti Heritage camp, and it felt genuine, authentic but extremely comfortable, remote and with lovely staff. Amazing camp for a safari with animals around the camp everywhere

All in all, a perfect safari
