A life time experience: a safari with Salim Msafiri. Together with my daughter and Easy Access Tanzania wildlife guide Salim Msafiri, we twice made a safari in January 2022. We spent three days in the Ngorongoro Crater area and visited the Crater and the village of Mto Wa Mbu and camped at Migombani Campsite. The Ngorongoro Crater is impressive! We saw a group of lions, who had hunted an African buffalo and by the time we were coming the jackals and hyeanes were eating the left-overs, while the lions were resting. In the Ngorongoro you can spot a lot of wildlife: elephants, hippos, gnoes, zebras, buffaloes, grant’s gazelle, thomsons gazelle, warthogs, monkeys, ostriches, cranes, flamingos. We even saw on two spots rhinoceroses. After a weekend of rest we spent three days with Salim in Tarangire N.P. An amazing experience. Salim is a lover of nature, very experienced and he knows to inform you on a lot of things (f.i. group behavior in the groups of animals). Tarangire is well-known from the groups of elephants and the huge Baobabtrees. It is a very special park with different landscapes and a lot of wildlife: giraffes, antelopes, zebras, gnoes, lions, hornbills, saddle-billed storks, secretary birds and pelicans. In Tarangire we spotted the fifth animal of the Big Five: the leopard. Imposing, just walking five metres outside our Landcruiser. A Dutch friend of mine works two year in Tanzania, Arusha as a teacher at the international school. He recommended Easy Access Tanzania as a reliable tour guide company. With Salim Msafari (the owner of Easy Access Tanzania) I made the arrangements by email from the Netherlands. Everything can be discussed with Salim, he is a very honest and reliable guide and tour operator. It was great to spend the game drives with Salim. Salim loves nature and he knows how to show the secrets of it. We are grateful to him and we recommend him as an experienced, enthousiastic and respectful wildlife guide.

A lifetime experience with an enthousiastic, honest and professional wildlife guide Met Salim op Safari in Tanzania: een geweldige belevenis. Samen met mijn dochter en Salim twee keer 3 dagen opgetrokken. Salim is een professionele, goed opgeleide, respectvolle gids met humor. De eerste 3 dagen was een mix van natuur en cultuur. We werden door Salim op dag 1 opgehaald uit Arusha en wij wilden die dag na een lange vlucht nog relaxen in de buurt van Lake Manyara. Bij Migombani Camps lukte dat uitstekend. De volgende morgen vroeg naar Ngorongoro Crater, waar we een fantastische safari hadden: olifanten, neushoorns (op 2 plekken!), leeuwen met een buitgemaakte Kaapse buffel, nijlpaarden, hyena’s, zebra’s, Grant en Thomson’s gazellen, flamingo’s, arenden, gnoes (en de bevalling van een gnoekalfje), jakhalzen etc. Een dag om nooit te vergeten! Salim doet er alles aan om je van de natuur te laten genieten en is heel flexibel, mocht je ergens willen stoppen om iets langer te kijken. De volgende dag een rondleiding door het dorpje Mto Wa Mbu. Heel interessant om de bananenplantage en rijstveldjes te bezoeken. Vervolgens zelf, zonder Salim een weekend in Arusha. Daarna 3 dagen Tarangire: een prachtig nationaal park met afwisselende landschappen, grote Baobabbomen en ook hier veel wildlife met groepen giraffen, olifanten, zebra’s, luipaard (ja, wij zagen met Salim de Big Five!), antilopen, dikdiks, wrattenzwijn en veel prachtige vogels ( de heilige ibis, koritrap, kraanvogels, abdims ooievaars, struisvogels, red billed hornbill, pelikaan, aasgier, bateleur Arend en niet te vergeten: de saddle billed stork en secretarisvogel). Een vriend van ons werkt voor twee jaar als leraar op een internationale school en hij kende Salim Msafiri (de eigenaar van Easy Acces Adventures). Ik heb rechtstreeks vanuit Nederland alle zakelijke dingen met Salim afgestemd en hoewel het bedrijfje klein is, kan ik iedereen de betrouwbare, eerlijke manier van afspraken maken van harte aanbevelen. Salim zoekt het beste voor de mensen die hij rondleidt in de natuur, waar Salim ook zelf zo van houdt!

3 jours incroyables au cœur de la savane Nous sommes partis 3 jours avec Salim (2j a Tarangire et 1j au cratère du Ngorongoro). C’était le plus beau moment de notre voyage en Tanzanie. Salim est un très bon guide, il sait vous emmener loin des autres touristes pour profiter pleinement des animaux. Nous avons eu la chance de voir beaucoup d’animaux dont des lions, elephants, girafes, buffles, hippopotames, rhinocéros etc.. Salim est très sympa et surtout parle parfaitement français. Il saura vous expliquer plein de choses à propos des animaux. C’est un vrai amoureux de son pays et il le fait découvrir avec beaucoup de passion. Je recommande sans hésiter et reviendrai dès que possible pour découvrir cette fois ci le Serengeti. À bientôt Alexandre et Sarah
