What Our Guests Are Saying...after their Experiences in Tanzania with Shrike.

Nothing beats the positive feedback we get from you, our guests. Making sure your trip meets every one of your needs is what we get out of bed for, and knowing you’ve come back refreshed, rejuvenated, and bursting with stories to tell and highlights to share makes it all worthwhile.
We organize safaris beyond your wildest dreams! Hundreds [if not thousands] of our guests can't wait to talk about it. We have been in business for over a decade and have built an excellent portfolio filled with happy and satisfied customers. Here is some recent feedback from them over the past year. From honeymooners to family getaways, seasoned travelers to first—time explorers. In their own words…
And, if you would like to talk with one of our past guests [from your country] over the phone or WhatsApp, most of them are delighted to do so upon request. However, most of our guests are from English—speaking countries including the US, UK, and Australia. With our open arms, we warmly welcome travelers from across the globe to Tanzania—in East Africa.


Thank you for taking such good care of us in Tanzania. Your knowledge of the African wildlife taught us so much about Tanzania and the great Serengeti. We appreciate your careful attention in planning our custom safari and making sure we had plenty of time to visit every stop on our list...

We arrived back in Moscow last night. I wanted to thank you for the organization – everything went like clockwork. Despite the numerous modes of transport, I think this was the most stress-free traveling I have ever done with my husband. Innocent is a wonderful mountain guide, his level of professionalism is unbeatable. We didn’t want to leave! Thank you. I will be in touch again shortly…

The trip was amazing. Every lodge was great and the surprise at camp was beyond words – taking a photo of a lion very close to that distance was one of the coolest things I have ever done. I would definitely recommend your services to friends and family.

Serengeti was amazing! I think that had to have been one of the best trips of my life, I saw some amazing things and meet some amazing people. Everyone at Shrike was great and all the tours and transfers that were set up were perfect and ended up getting a lot of great pictures and videos. Next vacation to Africa I will be sure to keep Shrike in my mind since Mark did such a great job. We will be in touch…

The trip was exceptional in every teste... It was one of our best holidays…we really appreciate how well you had organized it all for the four of us. We loved the way you were throwing some surprises along the way specifically the bush breakfast—but that's all I can say about that... Mark provided us with such a fantastic personal service and 24—hour support which I was really impressed with…

What I loved is that we got to experience things I would never have found on my own. Ahadi, our private safari guide is an asset. We also liked how thorough and detailed the planning was, thus allowing us not to worry about any aspect of the experience and merely enjoy. We would definitely recommend Shrike to others, and we will be using Shrike again ourselves…

Olga Nikitina Private Safari TravelerMoscow, Russia


My private safari guide, Baraka was absolutely A+. The transfers [to and from the Serengeti, Ndabaka Gate] were also exceptional—I wish I had a pic of Mark, the owner of Shrike. He escorted me to and from the Serengeti, Overall, I had an incredible safari! It was great to have everything arranged and thought of [by you!], to not have to worry about anything. I highly recommend Mark and Shrike..!.

Wendy Howick LarmanSolo TravelerPort Colborne, Ontario, CANADA


The accommodations you helped us select were all very impressive. At Giraffe Manor, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, and Four Seasons Serengeti in particular we had an unparalleled level of service that made us feel like celebrities. There is nothing that could have been improved at these lodges, they were superlative in every way. As we left each location, we wished we could have spent more time there...

Alex & Regan PurcellHoneymoon Safari TravelersNew York, US

We had an incredible safari with Shrike Safaris! Our private local safari guide went out of his way to make this safari a memorable experience for me. He was knowledgeable and more attentive and told us a lot of interesting stories about the life of local people, the African ecosystem, animals, etc... Our trip was curated in a way that every stop offered something different and we have you to thank for that.

Quannetta Edwards (Tucker), PhDProfessor at Western University of Health Sciences, California, US

You’ve managed to put together a memorable experience in just 2 weeks. And we must tell you that we really enjoyed every single moment of it! Conquering Mt. Kilimanjaro was absolutely incredible, the trip highlight. We are very pleased to have chosen Shrike to organize both our safari and Kilimanjaro trek, and you can be certain that in the next time off, we will jump on another adventure with you guys…. As the things we lived and saw wouldn’t be possible to experience if we were with following a travel guidebook…

Rodion LevinLuxury Safari Traveler & Kilimanjaro Trek GuestMoscow, Russia

Let me start by saying overall the trip was fantastic. As a conservationist and naturalist, Mark did a great job of teaching me about both the landscape and wildlife of Tanzania. There really isn’t one spot we can say was our favorite or least favorite. Mark is warm, kind—hearted, and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects and destinations offered in his safari... Thank you so much for making our safari an easy, fun, unique adventure that we’ll never forget…

Shrike Safaris does everything with a custom approach, so they aren't throwing you into the tourist pit that is run by others [such as A&K, MICATO, etc.] Although custom approaches command a premium, it is well worth the increment in price because the experience you will get is far and away superior. You will be away from the hordes, you will see larger packs of animals, you will have 1-on-1 [or close to] handling, and you'll feel that they really care about you...

Wow, what an unbelievable honeymoon trip! We absolutely loved every place we stayed and had incredible experiences. I would absolutely give Mark and Shrike a 10 out of 10! You made it so easy to plan the trip from far away, and we felt great about every step of the process. We won’t soon forget the amazing time we had in Kenya, Tanzania, and Zanzibar. Thank you for making it happen! When we book our next once—in—a—lifetime safari, we’ll reach out to you…

The whole safari worked BEAUTIFULLY, so thanks for sorting it all so well – we’d definitely use you guys again. The Serengeti was a perfect choice, with amazing landscape, friendly people, and the food at the tented camp was great too. Honestly, it was the most sensational family safari, thank you for your help and for making it so smooth...

Amy Harrison-Levine & FamilyDirector of Field Conservation ProgramsDenver Zoo—US


We had a wonderful experience and we will be singing your praises for the rest of our lives. Our itinerary was customized to get the most of our safari... I am pretty sure that eventually, we will want to come back to safari in East Africa and when we do, we will absolutely reach out to Shrike. Thank you again...

Alex Purcell & His WifeDirector at MasterCardNew York, US

Thank you for everything Mark; your team has helped us to have an unforgettable and amazing honeymoon! We really had a great time in all 3 phases [Kilimanjaro, Safari, and Zanzibar] Both mountain and safari guides, drivers, and all staff were extremely professional and it's the exact trip of a lifetime we were hoping for..! Everything did work out wonderfully and we've already mentioned you to a few friends that were inspired by our trip and will continue to speak very highly of Shrike and Tanzania as a whole!

I chose this company for organizing our honeymoon holiday and never regretted the decision. Shrike has been attentive to the details and always reachable. I was 100% satisfied with the well—planned itinerary, and several little surprises that awaited us here and there. Everything was perfectly organized at the highest level, I will definitely return and I know exactly who will help me organize another exciting trip!

Alistair Henry & His wife. Digital Product Manager at CENTURY 21Canada


The trip was amazing. Ahadi was great and the surprise he made for us was beyond words – a private balloon safari with the champagne breakfast was a definite highlight and one of the coolest experiences... I would definitely recommend your services to friends and family. We look forward to booking with you in the future – Kilimanjaro trek, [we want to see and do it all]. Thanks so much…

Olga Nikitina & Her Husband AlexPrivate Safari TravelersMoscow, Russia.


Serengeti really is a special reserve. What you organized for me was perfect and I enjoyed every moment whilst I was there. We have so many memories, so many happy moments, and we want to thank you for that. This trip and what you did to help plan this for us will live with us for a lifetime… Once again thank you for organizing what was one of, if not the best break I have ever had…
