Discover The Unexpected

What A Luxury Safari Is Like, Is It Really Worth It?

The words “African safari” conjure up images of lions roaring from a distance, trumpeting elephants, giraffes browsing the trees and pop-up roofed vehicles hurtling down the African bushveld. While all these create one of the most exciting and most memorable experiences a traveler can have, did you know there is one more thing that could hoist that experience? Imagine five-star luxury in one of the wildest, remote places in the world — posh accommodation with topnotch facilities, guaranteed stunning vista and world-class personalized service among all other things. Sounds perfect right? That’s because it is.

So what is it really like in a luxury safari?

DECADENT ACCOMMODATIONS

With luxury accommodations – either extravagant lodges or lavish tented camps – guaranteed to be set on the best spots of the park, you will be right in the heart of the African wilderness where the action is. Of course, you will have that tasteful sense of exclusivity, too. But you know what else? Fine amenities – comfortable beds that are huge and adorned with plush linens; an ensuite bath that features Western-style toilets, hot showers, and bathtubs; huge vanities and complete toiletry paraphernalia; and a private veranda that looks out into a stunning view of the iconic African bush. You can even enjoy wifi connection, round-the-clock electricity, and even have your own butler to serve your every need!

EXCEPTIONAL DINING EXPERIENCE

There are superb dining options when in a luxury safari. Welcome drinks and complimentary champagne are typical but apart from those are other unique dining options including bush dinners or breakfasts, picnics in the wild and even barbecue. If you’re on a romantic getaway, say perhaps a honeymoon, you can also let the crew arrange an intimate candlelight dinner for you and your loved one! Depending on your request, fine wines, liquor or champagne may also be served.

Luxury Safaris include meals of your entire stay, from breakfast to lunch to tea time to dinner. Food selection may range from local to international cuisine, all prepared by expert chefs ready to provide delectable gastronomic feasts. If you have any special dietary restrictions, you may inform the facility ahead of time so they could accommodate your needs, if available.

Typically, breakfasts and dinners are served buffet style. Lunches, on the other hand, are done as picnics between your game drives. Pancakes, pasta, chicken, fruits, salads, stews and white bread sandwiches are staple food choices.

UNTAMED AFRICA AT YOUR DOORSTEP

African safari parks are vast and mostly unfenced. Animals, big and small, roam freely across the land and so, it’s not surprising to see a few of them visit your lodge/tent. You can also hear lions roaring from a distance or birds chirping and humming a few songs.

Early mornings are usually a very active time for the animals. So while you stretch your arms out in the veranda or grab a cup of coffee to jumpstart your day, expect to see animals doing their thing in their natural habitat. Some of them wander through your camp, some of them may just flaunt their tails while they pass by, and some of them may even allow you to witness their fierce interactions with other animals!

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES THAT MAKE FOR UNFORGETTABLE STORIES

There are a lot of activities you can enjoy while in your “wild adventure.” This includes hot air balloon rides (sometimes it starts before sunrise and ends with a bush breakfast when you step back on land), Maasai tribe visits, night bonfires and more. And with the spine-tingling game drives, the five-star accommodation experience, the iconic landscapes, the stupendous wildlife, and everything in between, it is almost impossible to just have a mediocre experience. Truly, you will have one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life.

AMAZING RIDES

Being in a luxury safari means your custom-designed private safari vehicles are armed with superlative amenities and features. From huge windows and pop-up roofs to huge leg space and charging ports to complete emergency kits and comfortable seats, these customized 4WDs are designed to endure rugged or dust-ridden landscapes while ensuring utmost comfort, safety and superb wilderness experience.

EXPERT GUIDES

Did you know that guides/drivers make an important factor in creating an absolutely splendid African adventure? In a luxury safari, you will be guaranteed to have the best of the best, the cream of the crop guides/drivers. They will be the one to track animals and beautiful sights, and they may even take you to the “secret spots” of the place. The abler they are, the more you will be able to see and experience Africa.

Going on a luxury safari is indeed an exceptional experience that you will remember for a lifetime. An adventure beyond your wildest dreams, so to speak. So, is it worth it? Indubitably YES. Not only will you be able to enjoy the perfect balance of comfort, exclusivity and wildlife encounters, you will also have ample of opportunities to explore iconic lands such as UNESCO sites and world-record sights.

Asante Gosheni and espacially Hassan Nous tenons à recommander Hassan car nous venons de passer un séjour mémorable avec lui. Grâce à son expérience, sa connaissance parfaite du monde animal et des parcs, Hassan nous a permis de voir de nombreux animaux en étant extrêmement bien placé.
Bien évidemment les big five (même le rhinocéros!), la traversée de la rivière par les gnous et bien d'autres animaux.
En faisant un safari avec Hassan vous trouverez tout ce que vous êtes venus chercher.
A l'avenir si nous décidons de refaire un safari, nous voudrions repartir avec Hassan.

Hassan is the best guide !!!! Nous avons eu la chance de faire un safari de 8 jours dans les parcs nationaux du nord de la Tanzanie avec Hassan comme guide. Hassan est un guide très expérimenté.
Grâce à lui et sa grande expérience nous avons découvert et appris énormément de choses sur la Tanzanie, les animaux, les végétaux etc. Hassan est un véritable passionné qui aime transmettre son savoir.
En plus de ses connaissances, Hassan a un véritable œil de lynx et sais débusquer le moindre animal caché.
Grâce à Hassan nous avons eu la chance de voir beaucoup d’animaux et tous ceux du « Big Five ».
Parmi tous les véhicules présents lors des safaris, Hassan sait se frayer un chemin pour nous permettre d’avoir toujours le meilleur point de vue.
Hassan sait où se placer pour nous permettre d’avoir une vue sans égal sur les animaux, en les observant de très près.
Hassan est également un excellent conducteur. La route n’a aucun secret pour lui.
C’est également un guide très attentionné, toujours aux petits soins pour nous et d’une extrême gentillesse.
Nous recommandons Hassan les yeux fermés et si nous devions refaire un safari, nous demanderons d’être guidés par Hassan sans hésitation.
Merci encore à Hassan pour ces merveilleux moments qui resterons gravés dans notre mémoire !!

Great experience! Great experience! Starting from the trip planning the communications were very clear and smooth to organize the tour and select itinerary. In the end we opted for 5 days/4 nights route including the Tarangire, Serengeti and Lake Manyara nations parks as well as a visit to the Ngorongoro crater. The tour itself was excellent and very punctual, here kudos to our guide Wilson who is very experienced and knowledgeable about his job and also went well beyond his duty and gave us a nice summary of country’s history. It was really a pleasure to spend time with him and we managed to see the big 5:) Accommodations were superb: great camps, an amazing farmhouse close to Ngorongoro, meals were also good and picnic lunches well organized.
In summary the experience was highly satisfying, I sincerely recommend Gosheni Safaris and to ask for Wilson as a guide.

Great Taste of Tanzania Had a great 5-day tour. Our guide James was very dedicated to making sure we saw amazing sights. He asked us our favorite animals to see and made it his mission to help us spot them. The food was good, the lodging was very pleasant, and enjoying a glass of wine on lunches was a nice touch. Favorite lodging was definitely the Farmhouse by Ngorongoro. Beautiful landscapes along the entire tour, covered a lot of ground and got a great introduction to Tanzania.

Gosheni number 1 What an unforgettable 6 days, courtesy of Gosheni Safari and our guide/driver Zadock!!!
I booked this holiday back in 2020 but then had to cancel due to Covid. That was after a lot of research of tour companies and finally picking Ghosheni. The time was right to get this once in a lifetime trip set up again, so working via email with William at Gosheni we compiled the agenda…he was so helpful and we settled on one day in Tarangire, one day in Lake Manyara, three days in Serengeti and one day in Ngorongoro Crater…I’m now on the way to Zanzibar after an amazing experience, Gosheni took care of the whole package for my wife, three teenage sons and I.

Our guide and driver was Zadock, a humble, honest, genuine, proud and generous man. He did absolutely everything for us, answered every question and took us to all the places to see the big five up close, hunts and more.

The food was served every lunch time as a picnic, with plates, blanket, wtc whilst others had lunch boxes. The Jeep was cleaned daily, and was extremely comfortable along the difficult rough terrain…a credit to Zadock.

Zadock had so much knowledge not only of the animal kingdom’s hundreds of species but also the history of Tanzania, Africa, politics, and social customs, we felt as though he was part of our family.

Thankyou Zadock and Gosheni, I very rarely write reviews after holidays and I have travelled extensively around the world, but these guys are special and have made this so memorable for my family and I….I recommend to everyone if you are unsure about who, how, what, these guys will sort out the whole trip and at a very reasonable price.

Well done William, Gosheni and Zadock, and I really hope you get to be recognised as the number one tour company in Tanzania!

Extraordinary Safari with Gosheni I am so glad to have Gosheni as our tour operator. They provide excellent service starting from arranging the tour till the end of our safari.
As our city had quarantine arrangement due to COVID-19, we were so worry about our trip. Luckily, Gosheni is so considerate and try their best endeavors to rearrange our scedule. With their assistance, everything is set and we feel comfortable for all of their kind arrangements.

During the safari, we have a terrific tour guide, Edward! He takes care of all the stuff and administration including liaison with hotels, lunch packing, other add-on safaris so that we can fully enjoy the trip.

Not only Edward spots a lot a lot of animals and birds for us, including the top 5 in the trip, he also introduces us the habitat and features of the animals and birds. We are very impressed by his rich knowledge and do enjoy listening the "stories" of the animals.

Edwward is definitely experienced and propose the best programme during the safari, e.g. he tries to maximise our time for the game drive in different locations and tribe visit. We fully trust his expertise and professionalism.

We are very happy with Edward and Gosheni. We will absolutely consider them in our next Africam safari.

Amazing Safari with Gosheni and Ombeni Our guide, Ombeni, was the best part of our trip. He is really knowledgeable, friendly, and we trusted his expertise for the whole 9 days across Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro. We were lucky to see some amazing things on our game drives. Having grown up in Kenya, I have been lucky to go on many safaris, and this is one of the best I've been on.
The food was excellent, and even on the all-day game drives we had a cooked, sit-down meal for lunch which was a big plus point. All the accommodation was excellent as well.

We had a bespoke itinerary which we planned in advance with William from Gosheni, and he was extremely helpful in answering our questions and accommodating our requests.

I would highly recommend Gosheni and especially Ombeni for future travels.

Dreams come true!!! Thanks to best guide Hassani I have been dreaming Serengeti Safari tour for a long time and Gosheni Safaris made my dreams come true. We completed our 5 days safari at the end of July and it was wonderful. We visited Central Serengeti, North Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
The company is very professional from beginning to end. Peter the owner of Gosheni Safaris helped us a lot about planning our itinary. I asked too many questions and he replied all of them everytime. Sometimes he can be in the bush and has no internet connection but be sure he always will reply your questions. Just be sure that you are in safe hands and Hakuna Matata☺️

Our guide was Hassani who is a perfect guide, safari driver, friend and everything. He always did his best to show us as much as possible. We always felt safe and witnessed lots of amazing moments by help of Hassani. Beside being a perfect safari guide, he prepared very nice lunch tables every afternoon. He is very funny person and makes lots of jokes during the safari. I higly recommend Gosheni Safaris which is best one and Hassani who is a very good guide. I want to thank Hassani in person for making our safari perfect and looking forward to meet again🙏🏻

Tips: I recommend ‘Morning Hot air Balloon safari’.
