14 Day AAC Private Safari with Great Guides **** SELECT **** **** SELECT ****

Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

Wow. What a fantastic trip. All fifteen of the family consider it their trip of a lifetime. We saw so many animals and birds (all the major mammals including the rare Wild Dog). We saw a Cheetah kill a gazelle 30 feet from our vehicle and then watched in fascination as the mother taught her cub how to hunt the struggling animal. We have hundreds of memories in photographs.

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent
Guides: 

Our guides (Hillary Mandia, Davis Matafu and Elibariki Pallango) were again fantastic. All were very knowledgeable and could clearly communicate about the animals, the country and the culture. They were very patient in answering the numerous questions of both the adults and children (6 to 15 years of age).

We never saw a moment of frustration. We became very attached to them. They were family and all of us were sorry to part with them at the Seronera airstrip. They were very competent drivers of our three vehicles.

Accommodation Experience Rating: 

Accomodation: 

The accommodations were perfect, a mixture of hotel comfort and opulence, cabins on stilts (with zebras and gazelles grazing 20 feet from the door), farmhouse gardens and rooms to comfortable tents on the plain with hyenas running past in the evening light). The 5 dayrooms and lunch at the Mt Meru hotel were appreciated. The staff at the Maramboi and Kati Kati camps were exceptional in their friendliness and service.

AAC Trip Planning and Organisation: 
We want to thank the Africa Adventure Company and staff for all they did in organizing, arranging and assisting us in making it happen. The AAC service was unbelievable starting with our phone call and meeting with Mark at the Mississaugua golf club, our pre-trip discussions with Szilvia and Saskia and Irene, the greeters at the airport in Mt. Kilimanjaro airport (One of which was one of our guides Hillary) the other who arranged for the payment of our 15 visas, the transportation to the hotel, the briefing by Evans the next morning, the same on our return to Arusha with the greeter who handled our Visas (I didn’t get his name but a heavy set individual) arranging for us to check out in the Priority line and then insisting in filling out the exit forms for all 15 family members. Fantastic service by all.

Thanks to all at AAC for making this trip so successful and we will be spreading the word on AAC to all our friends.
