Tanzania Safari

We only have words of praise and warm recommendations of Rickshaw Tours and Travel. Just got home from safari and beach holiday in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Everything was well planned and coordinated so we had time to enjoy the holiday and time together. The safari guide was extremely competent, humorous and pleasant to be around. Tanzania offered peaceful, open and very kind local people, nice hotels and a fantastic exiting and rich animal life. We would be happy to travel with you again.

Hi Roselyne,

I have been meaning to contact you since we got back to say a massive THANKYOU.

Our safari was truly amazing. We got very lucky and had our amazing tour guide Mike to ourselves. Honestly he is such an asset to your team. He’s fun, friendly and a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Kenya. I was sad to say bye to him at the end of the trip.

Your support was also great Roselyne so thanks again for all the perfect arrangements you made. Especially the hot air balloon ride. Watching the sunrise over Kenya was a once in a life time experience which I will never forget.

All the hotels were great. The only feedback I gave on your survey form was for the plug sockets to work in the land cruiser and pillows to be provided for those long drives (which was a joke) As Mike pointed out we shouldn’t be sleepimg J

I will definatly be recomending you to friends.

Thank you,

Sarah Upton


Dear Andrea

The experience has indeed been memorable.  I understand that it is not easy with such short notice to manage such a big group and to accommodate to our precise needs. 

Pick up at KIA was on time and smooth, all cars were in perfect conditions and within 5 minutes the group was on board of the vehicles and on the way to the Serena at Arusha.  I must say that the choice of Property was perfect and that check in had already been prepared prior to our arrival, so within 1 hr from landing, the Group was already accommodated in their rooms.

We were perfectly received and attended by the whole Rickshaw team but especially by Deepak and Joseph.  They have really done a great job and effort to adapt to all our needs and requests.  We changed some of the initial arrangement to accommodate game drive preferences for the different cars, changing also to picnic boxes or to full lunches when needed.  Your team reacted always with a smile, with efficiency and speed to makes things possible.

Game drives were of a really high quality, not only because of the will of nature, but also because of the effort of the drivers/guides and specially because you included one more car with Deepak and Edward to go in advance and help the group to spot interesting game like lions, elephants, etc.

The stay at Tarangire Sopa Lodge was equally satisfactory.  Again perfect organization by your team.  When the Group arrived, Deepak had already pre-checked in everybody and within 5 minutes the group families were in their rooms and getting ready for the swimming pool and lunch.  Deepak had also made special arrangements for table reservations for both lunch and dinner as well as a private area for after dinner drinks.

The group also really appreciated the gifts that Rickshaw presented to each and every family.  This will allow us to keep a good memory of this excellent weekend.

I would also like to personally thank you Andrea and the rest of the backstage team at your office for making it possible.

You all have contributed to improve TPCC Management Team relation and moral to continue working hard for our company and this is highly appreciated.

Best regards



Dear Ajay & the Rickshaw Team,

We would like to send our warmest thanks and appreciation for your logistical support during Minister Monica Mæland's visit to Tanzania.

The Minister's visit was a success and this was largely due to the tireless commitment of the Rickshaw team.

The Minister expressed great satisfaction with her trip to Tanzania.

Thank you very much for facilitating the Visit.

Lusaka and Harare

My trip was organised very well by Yasmin Dadar and am extremely pleased with her professionalism. She is always available to give solutions and was on hand to support me when my Kenya Airways flight from Lusaka to Harare on 28th was cancelled at last minute.  

I use Rickshaw for both business and personal travel and am extremely happy with the services especially by Yasmin.


We had a great time in Istanbul. I was personally extremely satisfied with how your agent, Jack Musyimi, handled the logistics. He was very professional and patient through the entire process. We kept changing travelling dates but he supported us throughout. I was very impressed.

I would recommend rickshaw travels to my colleagues and friends.

Kilimia's energy and personality had a very positive impact on our trip.  Steve too us to Mt. Kili and he was a delightful person to guide us.  Both Steve and Kilimia I would ask to travel with again !!


Hi Aparna,

Thank you for arranging a once-in-a-lifetime memorable trip to see the gorillas in Rwanda. It was fantastic and we had a fabulous time. The entire trip from beginning to end was well organized. Our guide Abu is a gem...he knew everything and he is a great driver. We all loved him. All hotels were excellent in terms of accommodations. The only minor issue is with the food at the Gorilla Lodge. The food was mediocre at best, but the accommodations were excellent. Service throughout the trip was excellent.

We cannot thank you enough. We look forward to sending our other friends to Rwanda :)

Best regards,

Dear Rikesh,

We had a fantastic time. The driver allocated to us was great. His knowledge on the safari was superb.  His character, demeanor was amazing too.

We’d recommend using Rickshaw anytime and especially ask for Paul! Thanks for everything,
