My Oct 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 14-Oct-2014 and 28-Oct-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Another really excellent Tanzania safari.

Thanks to Liz for helping us plan and putting everything in place.

Just one thing to point out - not a complaint just for your information!

On the return journey from Dar to Nairobi we had to wait one and a half hours before we could check in our baggage. This was not an ideal place to wait. Other travellers from Mafia were catching an earlier flight to Nairobi with Kenya Airways. If we could have caught that we could have spent the transfer time in the Business Lounge in Nairobi. However, our Mafia Dar flight could have been late if a diversion to Songa Songa had taken place as it did on the outward flight so maybe better to be safe than sorry!!

My Oct 2011 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 13-Oct-2011 and 26-Oct-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was one of our best African holidays.

Careful planning (thanks to Liz) meant we got exactly the kind of camps and experiences we prefer. Most of the time we had a guide to ourselves - always a bonus!

It is hard to think that we can better this - but I am sure we will try. I am reliving our wonderful holiday completing this feedback

Expert Africa

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 8-Sep-2008 and 23-Sep-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A really excellent trip! One of the best organised trips we have done to Africa.

Particularly appreciated help through Lusaka airport and obtaining visa. All transfers went like clockwork and there was mimimum loss of holiday time in transferring from camp to camp.

Well done.
