Awesome Experience with Exclusive Wilderness Trails My wife and I did a 6-day private safari in mid-February 2020 with David Thadeus as our guide. The itinerary: Day 1: Tarangire Day 2: Ngorongoro Day 3-4: Ndutu area Day 5: Central Serengeti Day 6: Central Serengeti and flight from Seronera to Zanzibar Our guide David Thadeus was outstanding. The road conditions were challenging but with his skill and experience, we made it everywhere very smoothly and saw the Big 5 and much much more. David was a great spotter and found us loads of different experiences. A Lion kill was the highlight not to mention the mating inaction of a big lion and a Lioness at their mating season. A spectacular view of nature in action. There were many other highlights of which was just seeing the vast number of animals in the migration grazing on the plains. Hundreds of thousands of wild free animals certainly make an impression on you. All in all, it was a highly memorable experience and we would recommend David and his company highly. Thank you!

Unforgetable trip to Tanzanya We travelled as a family including parents and 4 children at their 20's. 11 days travel in the wonderful nature parks of Tanzanya and visited the Adzabe, Datoga and Massay tribes. Dave, our guide, planed for us wonderful journey. He has large knowledge about the animals, He knew how to suit himself to the family rhythm and to each of us in the group.He didn't become tired of answering our questions about the people, life and nature in Tanzanya. He choose for us excellent lodging places, drove carefully and keep us in safe. Dave is a gentle person, he has sense of humur and is an easy going person. We highly recomend Exclusive Wilderness Trails.

Great Northern Circuit Safari I would recommend Exclusive Wilderness Trails to anyone interested in a Tanzanian northern circuit safari. They provided an excellent experience and helped tailor a safari to our interests and budget. Our guide, David, picked us up at the airport in Kilimanjaro and lead us on a 10 day safari. He is very knowledgable of the area, cultures, and wildlife. He was really accommodating of our requests and one of the best guides I've had while traveling. The whole experience just rules. You spend most of the time riding around in a Land Cruiser with the top popped up and seeing mind blowing landscapes and wildlife. We saw every animal you could ask to see - lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, and even black rhinos. We also visited a hunter-gatherer bushman tribe and joined the men on a morning hunter. It was one of the most unique experiences that I've had. The food was great everywhere we stayed. Our guide even arranged some barbecue goat at our request which was a highlight.

Truly TRULY recommended We had some hopes when we traveled to Tanzania: the wildlife we are going to see, the places and lodges we're going to visit and how is it going to work out. Now that it is over, we can single-handily admit that reality far exceeded our expectations. Dave is a guide that has the most important merits you want your guide to have: Responsibility - the way the trip was planned and the organization was flawless. We especially recommend the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Kindness - Dave made sure everything we needed is being taken care of. Sensitivity - Dave knew exactly when we needed privacy and when not. Experience - we saw an immense amount of wildlife (and many many cats). This happened mainly because of Dave's experience and capabilities. Knowledge - Dave always had new information to share and was willing to give as much as we were able to accept. Humor - the trip with Dave was sheer fun. It didn't take long before he became an integral part of the crew. Therefore, if you have any plans to go to Tanzania, do not think twice and speak with Dave.

BEST TRIP EVER This trip was absolutely life changing. The plan was perfect: every day was special, different and exciting, the views and wildlife were inspiring and our guide was very knowledgeable about everything, spoke perfect English and was an absolute joy altogether. Accommodation during the trip was also the best We could imagine and we were completely comfortable throughout the trip. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who appreciates and loves nature and animals. Keep up the amazing work!

Best guide and an unforgettable trip! David was an incredible guide! He went above and beyond every day, enlightening us with his world of knowledge on every subject. We did a 7 day tour of Tanzania and he made sure every day was unique and interesting. We felt safe throughout the entire trip, and really enjoyed spending our week with the best guide - fun, responsible, and genuinely in love with the work he does. We’ve done guided tours before, and Dave is by far the best guide we’ve had! Thanks for an unforgettable trip! I don’t write reviews often, but this one comes highly highly recommended.

Die unvergesslichen Safaris Ich war bereits drei mal mit David von Exlusive Wilderness Trails auf Safari. Jede Safari war einzigartig. Das grosse Wissen über Kultur, Tiere und Vegetation ist bewundernswert und die Informationen sind spannend und interessant. Ich komme wieder und freue mich schon riesig auf die nächste Safari.
