Our customers say:


"It was a very nice and good experience. We enjoyed Family Farm. What a nice place to arrive and even better nice stay to come back after the safari trip. Knowing the place and meeting such nice people over there. And in a nice part of Arusha. And we had a lovely trip with driver Dismas and the cook. Being and traveling with them was a great pleasure. And so were the camping and the camping sites. Such a good way of travelling in the parks. All us of were and are very enthusiastic about this very adventurous journey. Thanks for organising this trip for us." Dutch Family of five, February 2013.

"Thank you very much for everything. The trip was perfect. Really, we can‘t find even 1 minus. Big BRAVO". Six Lithuanians,

January 2013.


"Everything is perfect. Thank you for your advice and all your arrangement.
Wish you a good New Year's Eve party and Happy New Year. Greetings from Stonetown, Zanzibar." Polish couple on 31st of December 2012.


"Tanzania and the trip was amazingly good! We were very satisfied with the arrangement, Family Farm and guide/driver," says Tone from Norway 2012.


"On behalf of my husband and I would like to express our appreciation for the great service, schedule and activities of our tour....thanks to you again’. At the end, I can say that, our only regret was that our visit went to so fast, I wish that we had been able to spend more time in each place, particulary in Tanzania. We will be recommending to others the company, specially you." Turkish couple, September 2012.


"The trip was great.. especially Serengeti and Tarangire. Tom and Dismas were very hospitable. Thank you for everything. Look forward to catching up with you again!!" An Indian in August 2012.


"Family Farm is indeed a superb oasis in the middle of a real African suburb. The journey on foot down to the main road was an experience for all senses. Also Peter's trip up Mount Meru through the villages was really good and rewarding - not least for my daughter who has never been in Tanzania. I even refreshed the little Swahili I know.
The safari lived fully up to our expectations, and Dismas, our driver was really good. However, we did not see a male lion, so we'd better say Tutaonana - see you! "

Feedback from a Danish family of three.

"We are looking forward to another night in Family Farm in Arusha where we almost feel like home. Thanks for the recommendation. For sure this has made our trip even better." Two young Danish women.  

"We had some great experiences in Tanzania and really enjoyed our safari trips. Diesmas is a real good driver and guide  - and a nice person at the same time. We would love to return to Nicestay." A Danish couple, January 2010.
