My wife and I were looking for a special way to celebrate our upcoming 40th anniversary, thought a trip to Africa might be it, and Nasera Safaris made our dream a reality. From start to finish, Godfrid provided a meticulously planned, custom expedition which Joseph executed to perfection. We’ve since recommended Nasera to a number of friends with an African adventure on their bucket lists, and are already planning a return trip for 2019.

Nasera safari was recommended to us by Shawn Carey. We did a private safari thru Serengeti for 6 days and 6 nights. It was very well planned by Godfrid. He was able to take all our needs into account and did a tremendous job putting the itinerary together. Sylvester was our young and energetic guide who knew his birds and wild life very well. He executed the itinerary perfectly to the T. Our ages ranged from 60 to 72 yrs. He managed, entertained and took care of us thru the trip excellently. He put all his effort to ensure we had a great trip and got more than what we were looking for. We saw over 130 species of birds and more than only the Big 5. Oldupai was a treat! We were running late but Sylvester managed to talk to the museum management to keep it open beyond the regular hours on a Sunday! We were floored by his reach! I have only good things to say about Sylvester.
I highly recommend Nasera Safari to anyone who is planning a trip to Serengeti.
We are beyond grateful to Godfrid, Reuben, and Nasera Safaris for the incredible experience we had in Tanzania. The trip they planned for us was absolute perfection. All hotels we stayed at were luxurious, yet authentic, and the game drives were phenomenal- truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our Safari Guide, Reuben was so knowledgeable and enjoyable to be with. He was very professional and made us consistently feel safe and well-cared for. We also appreciated how Godfrid and Reuben went out of their way to meet with us at our lodge before Safari and introduce themselves. This made us feel really comfortable and excited for the trip to begin!
We enjoyed multiple tours, airport drives, and even a local dinner with Reuben. We felt incredibly lucky on game drives- it was clear that other Safari guides looked up to Reuben as a mentor- he was consistently leading the way for rare animal sightings. Nasara Safaris was a class-act and perfection the whole way!
As I was planning this trip, I had very particular taste in tented camps and lodges, as well as intense attention to detail in my research. Godfrid was very collaborative, detail-oriented, and vastly knowledgeable throughout the entire process, while being mindful of our budget. Not only was our trip a joy, but the planning process with Godfrid was enjoyable as well and put us at peace to know we were in such good hands. We enjoyed our time with Godfrid and Reuben so much that we hope to stay in touch in the future! Thank you.
We had such a great time with Godfrid and Joseph! They made our journey very comfortable and exciting! We always felt that we were in the best of hands. Our trip was a little different than your average safari. We were there specifically to visit the Kibaoni Primary School. We learned a lot about the region and its culture from Godfrid and Joseph. They told us hilarious stories and showed us parts of town you wouldn’t see on just any tour. They also made time for us to shop and to take photos. All or our accommodations were very comfortable and the staff was both welcoming and delightful. When we arrived at our lodge, Godfrid even made arrangements and paid for two of us to get our hair braided! Thank you Nasera Safaris for being apart of a life changing experience! As far as we are concerned , you are the only safari company in Tanzania.

Godfrid-you are a gem! We had such a wonderful time in Tanzania. Your services are top notch and we couldn’t have been happier with our trip from hotels to transfers-you thought of everything & really made it easy for us! We’re already planning our return and will definitely be calling on you again. Highly recommending naserasafaris!!!!
Vi er fire piger, der var på safari over 3 dage i forbindelse med, at vi arbejdede som frivillige i Arusha. Vi var i Tarangire, Ngorongoro og Lake Manyara Nationalpark og overnattede på en dejlig lodge i området. Det var en helt fantastisk tur! Parkerne er så smukke, der er utrolig mange dyr og man kommer virkelig tæt på. Vores guide var rigtig sød og god til at fortælle om dyrerne og naturen. Bilen var super fin og udstyret med masser af drikkevarer og taget blev åbnet så vi kunne stå op og kigge ud. Vores lodge var super lækker med pool, dejlig mad og gode senge! Lige hvad man trængte til efter en hel dags safari.
Og så var vi så heldige at møde Godfrid, som var den sødeste og mest hjælpsomme person vi mødte på hele vores tur til Tanzania. Han arrangerede safarituren for os præcis som vi ville have det og til en rigtig god pris. Og så var han ellers vores livline hver eneste gang vi havde spørgsmål eller problemer gennem resten af vores ophold i Arusha – skøn fyr! Man føler sig i gode og trygge hænder med Nasera African Safaris og vi vil helt sikkert anbefale andre at bruge selskabet.
Tak for en fantastisk oplevelse!

Nasera Safari is top notch. We loved our itinerary, the lodges and tented camps were fantastic and our drivers were so nice, informative and showed pride and love for their country. Joseph was our guide and we love him. He has a wealth of knowledge of the birds and animals, the people, the history and the countryside of Tanzania. He is a total professional but with a fabulous sense of humor! A dear man, he catered to our needs and his equally wonderful, capable son, Godfrid, made our trip run smoothly, including last-minute adjustments. The father and son team do a superb job. We will absolutely go with Nasera Safari again. Can’t wait!!! Glenna Waterman
Once you decide the time is right for you to take your family on safari in Africa, the question is how to do it and with whom? I felt uncomfortable googling up a guide or even going anonymously to one of the brand names. I wanted a first hand referral, and got one from a trusted friend to use Joseph/Godfrid/Nasera. I’m so glad I did. The experience was terrific start to finish. All you really want when you’re going to such a faraway place to do such unfamiliar things is to know–for certain–that you are dealing with people you can trust. Rest assured that Godfrid and Joseph are men you can trust. Godfrid handles all the planning and money; Joseph stays with you beginning to end. I highly recommend using them to plan the adventure of your life. L Carson
After an enthusiastic group from Pasadena Audubon returned from their Tanzanian trip with Nasera Safaris, we began planning our adventure. We worked with Joseph and his son Godfrid for 15 months before our trip, but it was worth the wait. We wanted to see all manner of African animals — both mammals and birds. We really appreciated our driver, Abu, who was very knowledgeable about birds and where to find them, and had incredible eyes for spotting all animals. They teamed him with Joseph, the Nasera Safaris founder, who has many years of experience conducting tours and making new friends. The combination was spectacular. Not only did we have a “bucket list” experience, but we identified at least 150 species of birds in addition to the major mammals, large and small. Not only that, each day was an adventure that involved a number of African stories told by Joseph and a barrel of laughter. Joseph continually amazed us with the number of people he knows in the country. He was always greeting old friends and making new ones — and we are delighted to have left the country feeling like we have new friends and family back in Tanzania. We will welcome them to our home in the US anytime they can visit.
When we were met at the airport by Godfrid and Abu, we knew right off that the trip would be a success. Godfrid has an open and friendly personality like his father, and he does a masterful job of planning trips and making sure all of the tiniest of details are taken care of — whether in advance or even during the trip. They are a fantastic team who clearly love and respect each other and are in constant touch via cellphone. By the way, yes, it’s scary wiring thousands of dollars to a bank account in Tanzania.
Would we go again with Nasera African Safaris? Absolutely yes!
Joseph, Godfrid and everyone at Nasera Safaris went out of their way to make sure our safari was wonderful, safe, and memorable. My delayed flight, my lost glasses, nothing was too big or little for them to assist with. We saw more animals than I dreamed we would, had excellent photo opportunities, lovely lodging and excellent food. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I think Joseph should just be called Mr. Ambassador, he knows park staffs, hoteliers, chefs, guides, drivers, and is always making new friends. I am happy to be one of them now. My highest recommendation to this company, I wish them well.
