Ein fantastisches Erlebnis- Besteigung des Kilimandscharos Wir waren mit Bee Adventure Safaris auf dem Kilimandscharo. Es war ein fantastisches Erlebnis und perfekt organisiert von Bee Adventure. Im Hotel in Arusha kamen unsere 3 Guides Isack, Michael und Joffrey vorbei, um unsere Ausrüstung gewissenhaft zu überprüfen. Am nächsten Tag ging’s los. Wir wurden von einigen Porters, einem Koch und unseren drei Guides abgeholt und zum Ausgangspunkt der Marangu Route gebracht. Der Aufstieg begann. Während der Tour wurden wir von unserem Koch Nelson ausgezeichnet bekocht. Unser Waiter servierte uns täglich das Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen. Heißes Wasser zum Waschen und Tee brachte er uns morgens sogar ans Bett. Unsere Guides waren sehr bemüht und führten täglich einen Gesundheits-Check bei uns durch. Abends gab es immer ein Briefing, wie der nächste Tag verläuft. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Unsere Guides unterstützten uns bei allem, trugen sogar unsere Rucksäcke, wenn es am Gipfeltag notwendig wurde und brachten unsere Gruppe schlussendlich auf den Uhuru Peak. Vielen, vielen Dank an Isack und sein Team! Wir können Bee Adventure Safari absolut empfehlen!!

Best experience with Bee Adventure Safaris We did a two day-one night safari in Ngorongoro and Hadzabe tribe at Lake Eyasi in December 2022 and Izack made sure that everything was perfect. To fulfill all our wishes, he made a detour so that we could visit a witch-doctor and a Masai village, on our way back to Arusha, with no extra cost. The lodge we spent the night was very good and its chef was a suprise, as all meals served (dinner, breakfast and lunch) were just delicious. Izack and his team were very supportive from the very beginning (booking phase) until the end of our trip and we highly recommend booking with them. Hope to meet them again soon for a new roadtrip in Uganda and Rwanda!

Tolle Erfahrung mit einem super Team Wir haben einen 4-Tages-Trekk auf den Mount Meru gemacht. Es war eine tolle Erfahrung. Unsere Guides Isaak und Michael mit dem gesamten Team waren super cool drauf und standen uns bei der anspruchsvollen Route immer zur Seite. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt - wir können Bee Adventures Safari auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!

Wonderful experience that included everything Our wish was to visit the Materuni Waterfall starting from Arusha and to keep the costs as low as possible. From the beginning Isaac was super friendly and understanding and asked us about our wishes and arranged a wonderful tour to the waterfall which even included a coffee tour and a local lunch. We went by public transport and Isaac was with us from the beginning to the end of the tour. During the tour, we asked to go to Maji Moto which was on the way. Isaac made it possible at no extra and we had a nice day and all our wishes were fulfilled. I’m looking forward to see you again rafiki yangu!

Climbing Mt Meru: very obliging and very nice guides From the very beginning our guide Isaac was very nice and accommodating. Booking was very easy and flexible. Our flights got cancelled and postponed and our booking to climb Mount Meru was easily postponed without any problems. The whole team (guides, porters and cook) have been super nice throughout the whole trip and were very encouraging and motivating to climb the Meru when we were very tired. They made sure we were hydrated and eating enough, so we have energy to climb. The whole time our schedule was clear and we were always supported. On top the guides were very funny and pleasant to be around with. I will climb with them again! 🙂 and recommend their company to my friends.

Big recommendation We booked a safari in February and experienced an awesome trip with Bee Adventure Safaris. We booked a full package including flights from Sasibar to Arusha and back, as well as an accomodation and the two-day-safari itself. The drivers were on time, the food was amazing and the tour guide Reagon did an excellent job. We would always choose them again!
