    My friend and I participated in a 5-day safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro in Jan. 2009 with staff from Safari Porini – I can highly recommend not only their experience but also their service: On the trip I fell ill, and our guide took care of bringing me to a top-notch doctor asap! Please feel free to contact me in case of any questions on susanne.steiner (at) berlin.de!

    Hi! In october 2012, me and another two guys made a short (2days) safari in Tarangire Park and Ngorongoro crater with Charles from Safari Porini.
    He is a guide with a lot of knowledges not only about animals and wild life, but also about history, politics, social life etc. of Tanzania.
    Safari Porini have a good balance price/services.
    You can see photos including some from safari on http://iasiurca.uv.ro/Expeditii/Kilimanjaro.html
    We recommend you to use their services!
    PS: Jambo and Thanks Charles! 😉

    My friends and I (four in total) did a three day safari May 24-26, 2013. We visited Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara National Park and it was amazing. We saw so many animals and our guide (Charles) even spotted a leopard sitting in a tree! He was very friendly and knowledgeable and taught us lots of KiSwahili while we traveled. We asked him all kinds of questions about language, geography, culture, animals, etc and he answered them all.

    If I had more time in Tanzania I would definitely go on another safari with Safari Porini and Charles!

    Dear Charles,
    Our 4 day’s safari was an impressive and exciting trip.
    you always managed to show us the best places and you’ve done all to give us the possibility of seeing everything from the best point of view,even driving through the wet mud.
    In Tarangire we started our special “Lion-safari” by seeing those big cats very close because you didn’t give up to find them, Also the giraffe and elephants were amazing.
    Our most exciting part were the following two days in the serengeti, We were so lucky to see lions hunting twice we will never forget the young male lion chasing after the big buffalo’s. Seeing a leopard eating his prey on the tree was a mind-blowing.
    Even in the night at the ngorongoro campsite we could call you to protect us against the wind and the buffalo and last but not least special thanks to the greatest cook who provided us every time with amazing food.
    Thank you for one of our greatest experience in our lives
    Asante sana, Dominique, Lisa & Annika from German

    So, to make a long story short: Our trip was amazing! We did a stunning three day safari, organized by Charles. Saw Ngorongoro as well as Serengeti and were lucky with regards to the animals we saw 🙂 Safari was awesome, food was very good. We felt very comfortable throughout our whole trip particularly thanks to Charles who took care of us and helped us with the bookings of our hotels, additional transports, etc. He’s just a great tour operator.

    We’ll recommend him to our friends and – that’s for sure – get back to him as soon as we’ll be back in Tanzania! Asante sana, Charles for a lovely time!

    Dear Charles (‘Supercharles’),

    back to Germany we will not forget the wonderful safari to Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro. And the smart Guide driver: who has always been caring. Discovering the wild beasts with hawk eyes. And being patient with the German tourists, their questions and wishes. – It has been an outstanding experience for all of us.
    Hope you are doing fine. We wish you safari njema all the time, and no accidents with lion or cheetah.
    Please have a look at some pictures showing driver, car and passengers.
    Very best wishes for you and for your family!
    And kind regards from Germany:
    George, Utta, Anna, Felix, Mary & Ursula Guntermann

    PS. We really hope to see you again – the next time perhaps in the rain period with lightning and thunder all over the crater,And we will recommend you to our friends back in German

    Im Grunde ist bereits alles über Charles gesagt, also sagen wir’s eben auf deutsch: Guter Mann! Wir waren zehn Tage lang mit ihm unterwegs, erst in Moshi und rund um den Kilimandscharo, dann im Manyara Nationalpark, im Ngorongoro-Krater und in der Serengeti. Daß Charles jede Menge über Flora und Fauna zu berichten weiß, versteht sich von selbst; aber daß er einem mit seinen pointierten Bemerkungen zu Politik und Gesellschaft auch immer mal wieder die Augen dafür öffnet, was hinter der Postkartenfassade des Safari-Tourismus in Tansania wirklich abgeht, ist schon etwas Besonderes. Übrigens haben wir auch oft herzlich miteinander gelacht, und das ist vielleicht das Schönste, was man im Verlauf einer Safari erleben kann. Als wir uns dann am Flughafen voneinander verabschiedet haben, haben wir uns bereits für die nächste Tour verabredet. – Seb & Mati

    Charles fue un anfitrión fantástico, desde el primer contacto por correo electrónico hasta nuestra despedida en el aeropuerto, esforzándose siempre por que pudiésemos sacar el máximo partido a nuestros días en Ngorongoro y Serengueti. Todo estuvo organizado a la perfección, incluyendo la comida y el camping para las 4 noches, a un precio ajustadísimo que sin duda mereció la pena. Como guía y conductor, demostró tener un ojo e instinto infalibles para encontrar cada animal al tiempo que nunca puso límites a los kilómetros que estaba dispuesto a recorrer al día. Si volvemos a tener la oportunidad, nos gustaría repetir la experiencia, esta vez en la estación de lluvias. En ese caso, sín duda, lo haremos nuevamente con Charles.

    Servus,

    ich war mit einem Kollegen und Charles 4 Tage auf Tour. In dieser zeit besichtigten wir den Ngorongoro Krater sowie die Serengeti mittels Camping Safari!

    Ich kann die Tour nur jedem empfehlen der bereit ist ein wenig auf Luxus zu verzichten um vollkommen in die Natur einzutauchen!
    Wir haben alles gesehen, über eine Löwin mit ihren 2 Jungen bis hin zu einem essenden Geparden und einem Naßhorn. Abgesehen vom Naßhorn konnten wir die Tiere aus wenigen Metern beobachten und Fotos schießen.

    Das zur Verfügung gestellte Zelt war Top und auch das Essen über die 4 Tage gut und ausreichend.

    Also wenn ihr eine Safari machen wollt, gebt doch einem kleinen einheimischen Unternehmen die Chance ;). Charles ist vertrauenswürdig und auch sicherlich preisgünstiger als die großen Unternehen. Dazu kommt das er unglaublich viel weiß und gefühlt immer am rictigen Platz ist, was wohl auch an den guten Kontakten zu anderen Guids liegt :).

    Bei Fragen kann man mich gerne über [email protected] kontaktieren.

    Viele Grüße

    @Charles:
    Thanks for the amazing journey :)!!!

    We (four adults) did a 5-day safari with Charles in December 2014 and had the best time ever. We spent one day in Moshi to relax and recover from the overnight flight before heading off on safari. In Moshi we met with Charles and Anuary, our personal chef on this tour, to discuss the plan for the next days as well as meal and dietary requirements. Then we spent ½ day in Tarangire National Park, ½ day in Ngorogoro Crater and 2 days in Serengeti National Park. Charles was a fantastic guide. He has a great knowledge of his country and the animals. His animal spotting skills are just amazing. Furthermore, and quite important is that he a fantastic driver which means a lot in Tanzania. Especially as we have seen other tour companies which were speeding quite a lot on the dirt roads to and from Serengeti. Our chef prepared delicious meals and guide and chef were flexible with meal times. Heading off to the parks at sunrise and having a picnic breakfast there – no problem at all. Charles did the planning and booking of our whole trip including domestic flights and a week on Zanzibar after the Safari. We found him extremely friendly and professional. Also not to forget, we learnt quite a bit Swahili.

    Charles, thanks a lot for this great adventure. We enjoyed every part of it.

    Alexander and family from Germany

    Kilimanjaro and 4-days safari with Safari Porini

    I climbed the Kilimanjaro with Safari Porini and I also went on a 4-days safari with them. I can say: the experiences were amazing, thanks to Charles who organized everything. Me and my friend made it to the summit of the Kilimanjaro, but we couldn’t do it without our fantastic guides Kush and John and the rest of the team, thanks to them all. The quality of the gear was good and they took very good care of us. We had a very good time on the mountain.
    This is the same for the safari, Freddy was our guide there who showed us the big five. We had a lot of fun and everything was well fixed.
    In both trips, the food was amazing (and mostly too much every time;) ).
    I am very pleased about Safari Porini and I can definitely recommend them to you.

    Charles exceeded all our expectations with our 7 day Lodge Safari Tour we took in April 2016. The accommodation and meals were first class as was the safari during the day. We saw so many animals that we dubbed Charles, King Charles. As the owner of the business he took care of us from the first contact to dropping us at our accommodation post tour. He was always obliging and offered so much information and wisdom that the trip was a 10 out of 10. We saw the big 5 plus cheetah, giraffe, zebra, black rhino and the wildebeest migration. On this trip we have completed safari’s in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe and Tanzania blew them all out of the water for value per animal.

    “It’s hard to stop reminiscing of our family’s amazing Tanzanian vacation. Safari Porini was our host and planner on a 7 day Safari dream vacation that was better than we had imagined (minus the airline delaying one luggage). If you’re considering a Safari, I highly recommend Safari Porini. Charles the owner of Safari Porini will take care of everything and will be very accommodating to all your needs. Charles is well-experienced, knowledgeable and a very professional guide who has a superb eye for spotting the more difficult animals. Safari Porini’s price stood very reasonable. And unlike many larger companies, Safari Porini had no daily max mileage in their jeeps, which meant we were able to venture far away from the typical “jeep groupings” and sight animals all to ourselves up-close. Included in the price was excellent accommodations and tasty meals. 5-Stars are given from every family member for our experience with Safari Porini in Tanzania! Thank you Charles!”
