Serengeti, 2013

Tanzania between 8 Aug 2013 and 20 Aug 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"This trip was a pleasure to arrange - thanks to Maruska. Very happy with the final product. Also very responsive to all my questions.

Then Claire et al helped to salvage the safari just when it looked like the Nairobi airport fire might sink us. Then your ground contractors really came through to tweak the itinerary - Wayo safaris - and get my bag back - Kearsley safaris. George our guide/driver was so much more than a driver - very knowledgable, gracious, patient and just a nice guy. We liked him a lot. The camp at Kogatende - not mentioned in this questionnaire - was excellent (my God it was remote) - time at the Mara will not be forgotten.

I cant think of a single negative and I can think of several things "above and beyond" - not least getting us to Tanzania in time for the safari.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

To my surprise, I cant think of a single thing.

I have a very positive view of our trip - and I am currently recommending it/you to 3 of my friends."

Blues & Chutney

"Blues and Chutney - just our speed"

1 night Arrived 10 Aug 2013
"Blues and Chutney was just the sort of place we wanted to stay in. Very funky, low key, good atmosphere. Felt completely at ease and could have stayed longer.

The only problem is the location - the access from the town center is awful - terrible road."

Serengeti Green Camp

"We have great photos of this camp"

5 nights Arrived 13 Aug 2013
"In the middle of nowhere with a great staff - couldnt do enough for us. Survived a spectacular storm in the middle of the night - and some great sunsets.

George our guide/driver was so much more than a driver - very knowledgable, gracious, patient and just a nice guy. We liked him a lot. The Green camp at Kogatende was excellent (my God it was remote) - time at the Mara will not be forgotten."
