We were a volunteer group traveling from all corners of the world and had never met. Gemma did an amazing job organising our safari itinerary, our side trip to Zanibar and all transfers, seamless and faultless. The safari was a once in a life time experience.

In January a friend and I went to visit the School of St Jude's followed by a 7 day Tanzanian safari - Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater. Gemma arranged a suitable itinerary around our dates. The days at the school with various activities and excursions were amazing and we didn't think the trip could get any better,... More

We did a 3 day safari taking in Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We then headed off to Zanzibar for 5 days of R&R. Gemma and the team at Safaris-r-us could not have been more helpful and accomodating. All the details of our trip were handled via email from Australia. The planning was effortless and all our...

I had a fantastic six-day solo safari with Ole and it was an incredible experience. Ole was knowledgeable, friendly and interested. The vehicle was reliable and clean (unlike some I saw on the road!) and the itinerary had been well thought out. The days are full and because of Ole's experience I got to see the Big 5. yay! I...

We had an awesome time. Gemma put this package together for us and it was perfect. Our Tanzanian guide Walter was outstanding! So knowledgeable and always smiling :) Lucky enough to witness the migration. Rwanda Genocide Memorial was very moving especially after hearing some personal stories from our guide Herbert. Meeting the mountain gorillas was also a highlight of the... More

What can I say about Walter and Ed. Walter was our guide but the comments were most definitely echoed from Ed's vehicle. What an asset to your company they are. Their knowledge of all things Tanzanian impressive and they have an obvious love for their country. Great sense of humour and both caring and considerate men. As we were parked... More

Both experiences were excellent. We saw lots of animals in the crater and Walter's knowledge and commentary added hugely to the experience. Walter made sure we... More

Gemma and Edwin did everything they possibly could to make our trip of a lifetime. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to an amazing safari experience. We even saw a Lion kill a wilder-beast. I just can't speak highly enough of Gemma and her people.
