My Oct 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 5-Oct-2013 and 18-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a great trip. We enjoyed it all. Although there was some negative observations about Impala we nevertheless enjoyed it . I do not think we would again travel to east Africa as late in the year as on this occasion. It was extremely hot and certainly in the Selous the rains came early. Rains were also expected in the Ruaha the day we left, again early for that region. Weather predictions as unstable in this region now as they are in the rest of the world.

Our itinerary was perfect and everything went like clockwork.

I believe this is our third African trip with you. Your company is very reliable with knowledgeable advisors offering trips that are competitively priced. We would not hesitate to travel with you to Africa a fourth time.

My Jul 2009 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 22-Jul-2009 and 4-Aug-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

A fabulous trip with no problems. As stated we particularly enjoyed the diversity the Selous offers. An expensive area to visit but a very satisfying safari.

My Aug 2007 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 20-Aug-2007 and 30-Aug-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Overall we had a wonderful trip.

However we booked this trip because the emphasis was on it being a walking safari. We felt we had to persuade to walk at times, which was disappointing for us. It seemed that some other guests had not been sold it in the same way and were happy to drive.

We have friends who did an almost identical trip through you last year and this was not their experience. Despite the one unfortunate drive we had a really memorable time, and were impressed with the efficiency and smoothness of organisation. Thank you.
