The favorite part of our trip

We loved our 5-days Safari and cultural tour with Maggie! It exceeded our high expectations. It was easy to plan the tour by e-mail, Maggie had many great suggestions and was very attentive to our wishes.
We felt comfortable with Maggie and her team right away, and it was awesome to be with a local company with focus on sustainable tourism and a guide full of passion and knowledge about Tanzania, the people, the nature, the animals, birds, etc.
Maggie is an incredible person and perfect guide. Don’t miss out on the opportunity of a tour with Maggie!

The finest month of my life

Tina Lehman

Celebrating my birthday in Tanzania with Maggie’s Tour Company and Dare Women’s Foundation was the finest month of my life. I’ve dreamed of visiting The Serengeti since I was a child. Grateful this dream came true with Maggie Duncan Simbeye and Praygod Ndanshau. My experiences were unique and beautiful because of Maggie’s uniqueness, beauty, intelligence, knowledge and love of nature and people. All experiences, including my birthday party with people I now love as family, were pure magic I will carry in my heart forever. I will be returning to Tanzania because of these magical connections.

Highly recommend Maggie’s tours

I recently visited Tanzania to volunteer at Dare Women’s Organization and also go on a safari. Maggie is an amazing, talented, intelligent, warm, kind and caring woman. She welcomed our group with open arms. The care and love we received was overwhelming. She arranged our safari; taking in Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro. Our guide was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Every care and arrangement was taken to make this a memorable trip. I would not hesitate a second to highly recommend Maggie’s tours.

Close up experiences with animals and people of Tanzania

The journey to Tanzania and safari was a trip of a lifetime! We went out in a fabulous jeep everyday and had close up experiences with animals you can only dream of seeing. We also visited an orphanage, went to markets, talked to people by the side of the road and spent many hours talking with Maggie about life in Africa. We felt so comfortable with Maggie, we had her arrange a volunteer opportunity, a home stay and a climb on Kilimanjaro for our 24 year old son after we left. By going on safari with Maggie you are supporting home-grown development and the survival of both human and animal species.

My big dream is to be a tour guide

I have being safari with Maggie. We visit Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation area. Through safari we learn lots of things like environment conservation, empowering woman through different ways like me. I was learning how to be a tour guide because my big dream is to be a tour guide so through that opportunity I learn lots of things. We share lots of stories and much enjoy to having opportunity to have Maggie as our tour guide. It was real fun and amazing. She is a loving woman and strong woman.tumaini_temu

Felt so welcomed by and connected to a group of friends

What began as a safari vacation eventually became an unforgettable experience, in large part to Maggie and Dare Women’s Foundation. During this time I had the opportunity to tag along with Maggie and other members of Dare from Arusha to Tanga, as they collaborated with different groups that all shared a goal of making positive changes in their local community, eventually leading to great changes for the welfare of the country at large. Despite all the challenges that come with being somewhere new, I never felt so welcomed by and connected to a group of friends. While I know that the road ahead is long and there is much more work still to be done, I will always carry the memories of dance, laughter, and smiles that I shared with DWF.

HIGHLY recommend traveling with Maggie

I recently returned from a truly “trip of a lifetime” to northern Tanzania. The trip was arranged by Maggie’s Tour Company. Our guide, and now, lifetime friend, Maggie is a funny, knowledgeable and all round lovely woman. She is also one of only six licensed safari guides in Tanzania and the ONLY woman to have her own tour company. I HIGHLY recommend travelling with Maggie. I travelled with another female friend and we saw every animal we hoped, but didn’t expect to be able to see. We also visited tribal villages, something so important to me. Maggie was sensitive to our needs and expectations. I can’t imagine a more sensational experience than the one Maggie provided for us.

Enlightening and authentic

Our ten days with Maggie and our knowledgeable and intrepid driver Richard were an experience that will be with us for the rest of our lives. By the end of the first day, we felt that they were not just guides, but dear friends.

Not only did we see and identify over 125 species of birds and animals (including cheetahs, leopards, lions, rhino, elephants and giraffes), but — even more memorably — our interactions with Tanzanians were enlightening and authentic.

I appreciated the variety and uniqueness of the accommodations as well, from spa resorts to bush camps to park lodging. A fantastic experience!

Best five days of my life!

I had the amazing opportunity to have Mrs. Maggie as my tour guide. It was best five days of my life! Mrs. Maggie is so professional, fun, inspirational, and intelligent. She made the safari so rich and exciting. I felt so supported and enlightened by Mrs. Maggie’s energy and knowledge. What an unforgettable and life changing experience.

Highlight in our lives

Our Safari with Maggie in the National Parks of Tanzania was a highlight in our lives.  Maggie is so very personable, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.  She carries the whole picture on Safari – the Animals, The People, and the Environment.  She was always conscious of our needs and our safety.  Time with Maggie was a true African experience and it was so much fun!  We would love to travel with her again.
