“SP the guide/driver was phenomenal – incredibly knowledgeable and fantastic. They were almost on lion overload because we saw so many! Saw the migration and plenty of cheetahs too. The trip was marvellous in every way. Fabulous. Everything worked out beautifully.”

“We loved our trip to Tanzania! Very different from South Africa. Much more of an authentic experience. The lodges were great! Food was delicious! Kenny loved our experience at the Kati Kati Camps. While staying at the Serengeti Camp a lost infant elephant stumbled upon our group. Tragic ending, but an incredible experience. Mohammed was wonderful! He provided a wealth of knowledge and answered all our questions! We found all the big 5 as well as some of the small 5. We observed a lioness nurse very young clubs, a leopard with young, herds of elephant and so much more. The Crater was spectacular! And we found a wildebeest mega herd migrating through the Serengeti. Overall, an incredible experience!”

“Our trip was so amazing!  It was seamless thanks to your planning.  We saw the Big 5 including the elusive Leopard. The accommodations were all wonderful.  We grew especially fond of the staff at Kitela and Kichwa Tembo.  Our table steward at Kichwa Tembo prepared a special last evening for the 4 of us which continued into our individual huts.  Outstanding! Our first guide Jim was very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. We were sad to leave him in Tanzania. He taught us well. We have memories to last a lifetime.”

“Hi Mohammed, Just a note to thank you again for the most amazing trip!  We will be taking home many memories from our adventures with you.
I hope your drive back to Arusha was uneventful and you now have some time to spend with your family.   All of our arrangements worked out perfectly and we are now at the beach in Zanzibar, heading to Stone Town tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your “office” and wonderful country with us. Cheers,”

“Wow! I really don’t know what to say. We’re on our way back to the US today and I cannot believe this trip is over.
Most importantly – our guide, David – was exceptional. Please make sure that anyone relevant knows that he made this trip spectacular.
His knowledge of the area, the animals (big and small) was amazing. He’s got to be the best spotter of animals anywhere. We saw every animal we could hope to, including the big five all in one drive. He is also a wonderful person that our family enjoyed getting to know. I would give him the highest possible rating for every category. I cannot speak enough of him. We feel so lucky that we had him and would recommend him to anyone going. Please make sure to pass this along for him. Thank you so much for all the planning and work. We truly had the trip of a lifetime.”

“It was amazing! Truly the trip of a lifetime! Simply put, our safari was even more amazing than we thought possible. Our guide, Mohamed Khalil, was wonderful, knowledgeable, personable and made us feel right at home. Every day was a new adventure and we were amazed by the quantity and diversity of animals and birds we were able to see. Mohamed made the entire journey incredibly smooth, helping organize every detail. He’s an amazing guide and we would highly recommend him. Mohamed Khalil is an incredible guide. His warmth, knowledge, easygoing attitude and incredible expertise were a huge part of why our safari was the trip of a lifetime. We would highly recommend him to our friends and colleagues. Thank you for everything, we loved every minute of it! :)”

“I just wanted to thank you for an unforgettably amazing trip!  I can’t even begin to tell you how much we loved Africa!  Your hard work created so many unbelievable memories.  The whole trip exceeded all of our expectations!  We saw and experienced many things we didn’t expect.  Our trip had a lot of pieces and everything flowed and worked out perfectly.  The accommodations were perfect!  Each lodge had its unique flavor and provided every service needed and delicious food.  All drivers and guides were also spot on.  I especially want to give extra attention to David, our Tanzania guide, who’s enthusiasm, warmth and vast knowledge opened our eyes to the many aspects of Africa, the animals, the people, the cultures and the country.”

“I just had to write and tell you my daughter and I have a marvellous time! You did a WONDERFUL job in putting this trip together and I know I was a constant pain in your butt with all my questions but WOW everything was PERFECT!  The places we stayed and the events you planned were first rate and everyone was terrific to us and let me tell you SP our guide made this a trip to remember – he was knowledgeable, personable and fun to be with. He knew about the area the animals and where to go and treated us like we his personal friends who he wanted to make sure enjoyed our trip. Everything was great! This time with my daughter could not be valued in any way you made it just so right and special.”

“Since I am up at 5AM thinking about Africa, I thought I’d sent you a note.  It was an incredible experience!  The people, the scenery and the animals were so amazing! I am in love with Tanzania!  Every day we would exclaim about the wonders we had seen and experienced and the next day there was more.  I want to especially point out the guide that were had.  His name is Syldion or SP as he asked us to call him.  He is so kind and easy going, able to get long with everyone, never ruffled about anything.  He knew everything about animals, their habits, how to find them, could identify so may birds and knew about plants and trees as well!  In addition to his immense knowledge he was an excellent and intrepid driver. He could not give us any contact information so we could sing his praises but said we should go through you so if there is some way to recognize him it should be done!  The accommodations we had were all very adequate and the food was good.  We were well taken care of though out the trip.  Lake Natron Camp was the most basic but our hosts the Masai were the most warm and caring people…I knew we would see Masai on this trip but did not realize how almost embedded we were there.  It was a wonderful experience.  The day of hiking and outdoor activity was very good.  The 2 girls joined us on the hike to the lake. It was sad to say goodbye to SP and the safari time.”

“I can’t thank you enough for recommending Francis to us. We had a wonderful time, unfortunately too short but memorable. Our stay in Zanzibar was very relaxing as well, I really didn’t want to come back. I hope we will be able to visit other parks at some point.”

I had a great time in Tanzania and I think that was mostly because of my driver/guide and friend Humphrey who accompanied me from Arusha to the Serengeti. It wouldn’t be right to say the trip was seamless, we had a couple issues but nothing Humphrey didn’t give his best to resolve. We never missed our designated hotel/bed and we never missed a meal. Fine meals they were too. When I arrived back in Kilimanjaro at 1200 noon on my flight out day, Richard met me at the airport, treated me to lunch at a very upscale resort and took me to visit a national park outside of Arusha on the way to the airport and delivered me to the airport exactly at the hour I had requested. A very fine way for the company to treat me and I thank them all very much….. very well done.
