Northern Tanzania trip February 2017

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 19-Feb-2017 and 23-Feb-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The response, information and suggestions we received from Ellie Walkingshaw were great.

Initially I was operating under the delusion that I could self drive, while that is not a type of tour that Expert Africa helps with she was still quite helpful making some suggestions. As it became obvious that we would need more help with both the driving and the booking at Ndutu Lodge, she was able to step in and work with our available dates.

I would wholeheartedly recommend them based on our trip and experience with them.

These travellers commented about their guide:

John was incredible!

I could go on and on about John. He was punctual and courteous and all that. He was very well informed, very knowledgable and very personable. He was both a very skilled driver (and in certain circumstances with some very rainy weather this was tested) as well as a very knowledgable guide.

What my wife and I both felt that was after driving for an hour or two up from Arusha he was like an old friend. He had great insight into the local area, his knowledge of the flora and fauna in the parks were amazing, his ability to drive, spot animals and give us information on what we were seeing was superb.
