Don't just take our word for it
This trip was more than we could have ever even dreamed it to be. It's hard to put it in to words.
Communication from the start from Michaela... read more was always prompt and helpful. We enquired with a few different companies before settling on Luna Safari - Luna was the only one who seemed to put so much personality, kindness and effort in to all replies and we just felt comfortable with them - our intuition was right - it was 100% the right choice for us.
Outstanding trip with wonderful guides, the jeep was awesome. We loved the champagne on arrival and all other safari goers we saw couldn't help but turn green at the sight of our sparkly jeep and hot lunches from the hamper.
It's easy to see why this family run company have not even one review thats less than 5* online and we'll be recommending them to anyone and everyone who will listen.
Expertly chosen lodgings throughout, so many personal touches and memories for a lifetime. If I could live this trip over a million times I would.
Don't waste your time with anyone else - Luna Safari are definitely the stars of the show!!

We enjoyed everything about our Luna Safari tour with our guide Erick. He was determined to find each animal we wanted to see ... rhinos, elephants, lions and cubs, zebras,... read more giraffe, leopards, cheetahs, baboons and sooooo much more! Erick knew all about the different types of trees, animal behaviors, timing and best location to view the animals. The lunches were the BEST!

We chose Luna Safari for our honeymoon adventure and couldn’t have been happier! Everything was absolutely amazing. From the little details of meeting us with champagne and decorating our room,... read more to seeing the Big 5 in action. It was a once in a lifetime experience and you can tell Michaela and Alfan put so much heart into it. At the end of the trip we had an issue with our flight back to Tanzania from Zanzibar and Michaela and Alfan were quick to fix it and help keep me calm. Mike, our safari guide, was also truly amazing. He made sure we had a memorable safari experience and had so much knowledge about the animals and the area. 10/10 would recommend Luna Safari to anyone looking to go to Africa. They took such good care of us and made sure our honeymoon was a magical experience. Hopefully we get to go back and see them again! ️

My husband & I always wanted to book a safari, but with a toddler we was always dubious! After speaking with Michaela and 100,000 questions we decided just just go... read more for it! Boy did we do the right thing! So myself, my husband and my son (2 today!) returned back from Tanzania yesterday after a trip of a lifetime! Not only was this a holiday but also our wedding and honeymoon!! To avoid the stress of a big U.K. wedding I asked Michaela if it would be possible to get married whilst there, of course to task is to much for both her and her husband/ business partner Alfani! We started with 2 nights in Arusha to rest from a long flight and get Jacob accustomed to that changes then we was collected by our tour guide Eric. Eric is such a fantastic and kind hearted soul and soon became part of of our little family for the week! His knowledge is outstanding and his work ethic, well I’ve never been cared for so well before on holiday! We spent 4 days on safari covering Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti & Nrongoro Crater National Park! We saw the big 5 and much more, all whilst both Alfani and Michaela checked in regularly and ensured we was well looked after, safe and receiving nothing but 5 star treatment at every location! Not to mention arranging the most delicious hot food hampers each day for lunch in the bush!
Now, many told us we must be mad doing an African safari with a not yet 2 year old how very inaccurate! If you are wanting to do it, don’t listen to those that clearly have never been because Jacob LOVED every second! He honestly had the best time, he made best friends with Eric, learned about all the different animals and was always smiling! As for safety, the camps are pure luxury and the staff know the bush inside and out and work to keep you safe 100% of the time. The guides that Luna safari employ are specially chosen and employed and are capable in all kinds of situations and we would never doupt their capabilities with keeping our family safe!
If you don’t like the thought of sleeping in the bush with a child, it’s understandable we was fine and would do it again however, if you prefer the idea of the guarded camps then simply just discuss this with Michaela and Alfani and they will make your trip bespoke to you and your desires! No request I have found is proven to big!
Following the safari, we was flown to Zanzibar via bush Plane to pure paradise! Zanzibar has the authenticity of east Africa whilst holding the luxury tropical feel of the Maldives! The hotel we stayed was Warere Beach, both Michaela and the hotel owner worked tirelessly to arrange our big day! We married under a full blood moon at sunset overlooking the Indians ocean with massai warriors, local bands and the entire hotel staff partying with us! It was like something from a movie! Every single detail was breathtaking and we will never forget our special day or our special trip for aslong as we live!
We certainly plan to return one day!
Arlo, the true boss man of Luna Safari, he deserves a mention of his own! What a charmer he is, he soon became best friends with Jacob and welcomed us into his country and his home with open arms, sharing his toys and telling us all about his favourite things to do! He ensured we knew where to buy treats from the shops because of course that’s the most important part whilst travelling! Jacob will really miss you!
Thank you Luna safari, we hope to see you again someday soon!

Where do I start? Everyday was more amazing than the last! I met Michaela online through Girls Love Travel (GLT) facebook page and began planning our safari about... read more a year ago. She was amazing and answered all 10,000 of our questions! We visited Giraffe Manor in Kenya, Safari for 5 days and finished with some much needed relaxation at the beautiful island of Zanzibar. If you are thinking about going, just go! And let Michaela and Alfani plan the trip of your dreams! You will be in good hands!

What can we say but huge thanks to Michaela and Khalfani for the very warm welcome to Tanzania and for looking after us so well and making our week so... read more special. We also mustn’t forget our wonderful guide Selemani who found the Big 5 for us and so much more. We would not hesitate to recommend Luna Safari and their fantastic team.

I have been on several safari’s in the past 15 years of visiting and working in Tanzania. Without a doubt, this company was the best. Their guide Eric... read more and the accommodations were beyond our expectations. I couldn’t recommend any company any higher than Luna

Luna Safari was so accommodating from the day I sent an email to inquire about traveling until the day I returned home. It was so reassuring to know that I... read more was taken care of when I was solo traveling and so far from home. They put individualized my itinerary just for me, which made my whole trip so magical and exactly what I wanted! I hope I’m able to camp at Serengeti again soon!

Luna Safari is one of the best travel companies I've ever worked with. I really like that it is a smaller family owned business. Some bigger companies you... read more seem to get lost in the mix but this experience was so personal and had the feel like you were family. My teenage son and I decided on an African safari and Zanzibar trip about a year before we actually landed in Africa. Luna took care of all the planning for my entire trip. I was nervous with it being just me and my son and Luna made me feel so confident that we would be fine and everything would be perfect. AND EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!! Even when I changed up my dates a bit and extended the stay. The communication was top notched and always very quick to respond. They answered every question and concern that I had and gave the best food recommendations. We got to spend time with Michaela and her family even having dinner together a couple times at an amazing restaurant that my son still talks about. I really enjoyed that they we so inviting into their family and made us feel so welcome. The accommodations were amazing and each had their own special quality about them. Coffee in front of my tent while watching the sunrise over the Serengeti was the best. The "tents" were spacious, clean, had bathrooms and we could listen to the lions and the hippos in the evening. All the accommodations had great food and unbelievable staff. The best part of the trip had to be our guide Suleiman. He really made the trip. He would answer all our questions and having a teenager he had ALOT of questions. Suleiman gave us so much information about the parks and the animals, even telling us all about the green mamba. He was a lot of fun and we had the best time on safari laughing and signing and pointing out the different animals. He was also very caring when my son wasn't feeling well trying to make him comfortable. After the safari the Luna team took us to the airport, and we had our goodbyes as we jumped over to Zanzibar for the next few days. All transports to and from the airport were set up and he was waiting when we landed. The resort was beautiful!!! Micheala gave us many recommendations of food and excursions and they were all wonderful. She still remained in contact making sure all was going well during our stay on the island. I've only been home a couple of days and still can't believe how amazing this trip was. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. It could not have happened without Luna Safari and all their hard work making it happen. The trip was perfect and seemless, and I can't recommend them enough!!!!! Miss you guys and thank you again for making this long-time dream come true.

Outstanding the whole way through. Seamless organisation and planning - quick responses to all of our questions and so much flexibility in planing our itinerary.
The Luna Team... read more were so kind and welcoming. We instantly felt at ease.
Their jeep was incredible - really comfortable, plenty of space, ports to charge our cameras, always stocked with water and really yummy hot lunches, which were served to us on the go. Even in the middle of Ngorongoro Crater, we were served lunch with a table cloth, china plates and wine.... I mean - everything was above and beyond.
Our driver knew everything about the wildlife and the environment and we left with so much knowledge we now feel like experts ourselves.
We had some tricky dietary requirements in our group of 6 and all were catered to beautiful with no issues.
Our itinerary flowed really well and every park we visited had something new to offer. We saw all of the Big 5 and so much more.
Accommodations were outstanding and the perfect choices - we really can't thank Luna enough for putting together such an incredible safari journey.
We were attracted to Luna Safari mostly because they are so personable. They are a small family run company who take the time to get to know each of their guests and get back quickly with great responses.
We met the family while we were there and felt like we became a part of it. Michaela & Khalfani are really good people - honest, caring and they know what makes a safari so much more that you can even dream it to be. And their little Boy Arlo is just the cutest.
We couldn't be more glad that we chose Luna Safari for our dream trip. As I write this review I even feel as though I'm not quite doing this trip justice - it was on all accounts the utter adventure of a lifetime.
