“Adventure Calls made our trip transcendent. Everything was taken care of. I recommend them to anyone who not only wants to see Africa, but to feel, touch, smell and taste it. They put together a trip that will forever be embedded in my soul. Just ask that cheetah I spent some time with, if you’re lucky enough to find him.”


“Going on safari was on our bucket list. I’ve seen the photos and heard the stories but absolutely nothing can prepare you for how truly special Tanzania is. From the accommodations to the incredibly educated people to the incredible beauty of the parks, from beginning to end our trip was immaculately orchestrated.”

Margaret Miner

“From the moment we stepped out of the airport to the moment we were dropped off again, Amy and Emmanuel (our local guide), taught us more than we could ever have imagined wondering about…all while seeing, close up(!), thousands of animals in their own habitat. Good food. Beautiful “tent” hotels. Amazing landscapes. Fun conversation. All added to our experience. Go. Just go!”

John and Liz

“We booked Amy Vankanan with Adventure Calls to coordinate our safari in Tanzania. It was important for us to have someone with us that could walk us through the process of traveling to a foreign country. Amy was very good at creating our ideal safari vacation and was with us from beginning to end. She lived in Tanzania for three years so she is very versed in the country, culture, and excursions. She knew where we needed to be and when we needed to be there.”

Carolyn Simmons

“Safari in Tanzania is a once in a lifetime experience… We saw the big 5 and wildebeest migration… Adventure Calls took care of absolutely everything and our guide Hernua was very friendly and knowledgeable. Amy even fixed our camera settings to ensure we captured the most amazing photos! I highly recommend this trip, you won’t regret it!”
