Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

Thank you so much for the trip planning - we said more than once how you seemed to know EXACTLY what we wanted to do at the moment we wanted to do it. While the whole trip was amazing, there were several things that stood out and made you shine as trip planners:

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent

- I'm confident in saying we had the best guide and driver in all of Tanzania. Ephata became a dear friend almost overnight. He was kind, patient and fun to be around. He was willing to go off the beaten path if he thought the kids would like something - while also being very keenly aware of our safety (my son tested that a lot!) We noticed the first day that he was able to find animals the other guides just didn't see. Not only find them, but he is clearly an experienced tracker and would anticipate where that animal might walk or come out of the bush. He had us in prime view of leopards, elephants, lions and cheetahs that other jeeps never saw (or saw too late!) He also put his heart and soul into showing us Tanzania - I know we exhausted him but he never showed it. I just can't say enough about him - I hope you will convey our deepest gratitude to him (and tell him we miss him!)…

Accommodation Experience Rating: 


- the surprise lunch overlooking Arusha (I think - I don't even know where we were!). Pulling in to see a waiter, table and hot meal just for us was unbelievable. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you for that.

- The tented camp in Serengeti! We had a hippo in the camp one morning and some of the migration one afternoon. Also the employees at the camp could give lessons in hospitality. Every one of them took their job - and our enjoyment - very seriously… Beautiful people, every single one of them.
