Our 4 centre January N Tanzania safari

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 17-Jan-2015 and 28-Jan-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A "very satisfactory" rating does not do justice to this superb 10 night, 4 centre Northern Tanzania safari put together with suggestions from helpful Expert Africa staff.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience which was so different to previous and equally superb Expert Africa holidays in Botswana and Namibia and our own explorations of South Africa some years ago. We would recommend this time of year for such a safari, as there were no more than a handful of vehicles around the parks within eyesight at any one time, and even in the Ngorongoro Crater we were pleasantly surprised to be able to find our way to parts where we were totally on our own.

The trip was all the better for having the consistency of our superbly professional guide, Ayoub, for 7 nights in 3 camps. On our departure, he asked us to be ambassadors for Tanzania and spread the word what delights the country has to offer as a safari destination. We could not agree more and would recommend this circuit to anybody who likes to explore Africa either for the first time or for a return visit.

A relaxing escape in the bush

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 18-Apr-2009 and 1-May-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!

After just 24h in th bush it felt as if we had been away from the humdrum of UK life for an age. We have rarely experienced service as good as that provided by Wilderness staff anywhere in the world and would recommend the company very highly to other travellers. We will definiteley book another holiday in Africa in the future.

Suggestions for improvements:

Keep it up! Excellent in all respects.
