"We knew we were in capable hands from the moment we met Bariki of Restorations Safaris. Our first impressions were confirmed and expanded over the rest of our tanzania travel safari . Bariki has an in depth knowledge and sensibility of the culture, wildlife and natural surroundings of his native Tanzania. Without his keen senses and expertise of animal behavior we would have missed many exciting and unique sights and experiences. For instance, he spotted a pair of lions, not visible at first to our untrained eyes, in the golden grass of the Tarangire, and thanks to his insight and patience, we were able to observe this pair's mating ritual. Truly a once in a lifetime experience! We felt we not only had an incredible safari, but also had made a new life-long friend in our host and guide."
"Our lives changed on our vacation to Tanzania this year. Bariki, our guide, used his deep experience and incredible knowledge to transform our trip from simple sight-seeing into a connection with the land, the people, and the astounding animals. We were truly moved to action by Bariki's concern for the environment - we can't wait to return. We'll definitely go with Restoration Safaris because of the passion for creating good and helping Africa."
"Everything about our tanzania travel safari with Restoration was amazing! The weather was perfect, we saw fantastic wildlife, and Bariki made sure that everything was taken care of for us. As our guide, he struck the perfect balance between being the expert in charge, and letting us dictate the pace of the day. So when we wanted to sleep in one morning, or spend well over an hour quietly watching a huge herd of elephants, we could! But the real highlight was planting trees with a group of orphans in one of the villages. The holes were pre-dug by the nursery providing the tree saplings, so planting them was actually very easy, and the children were SO excited and eager to participate! Watching them handle those saplings as if they were the most precious things on earth was incredible. This, we will never forget!"
