This safari travel planner put together a great trip which covered immense amounts of the country in a very short time. His advice on sights, packing, tipping and general information on what to expect were invaluable. We appreciated the luggage he sent so we were able to easily meet the travel weight limit on baggage. Our in-country guide was excellent; he quickly learned how we travel and what we wanted to see (everything!), and his knowledge of the wildlife, habitats, mating and young-rearing behavior, as well as the cultural human aspects of Tanzania was expansive and impressive.
Too many to count. The animals were beyond belief. We loved watching them interact and react to each other, from nursing and protecting the young to hunting or avoiding predators. Our guide was able to spot animals that we would never have know were there, let alone seen. The bush people were a sight not to miss, but not for weak of heart. Watching them live their "normal lives" was eye opening, and made us appreciate everything we have (even during power outages recently). We loved the tented camps, especially hearing the animals at night. Taking the "walking safari" and the night drive gave us a chance to experience the wildlife in new and exciting ways. The Leakey museum at Olduvai was excellent and very informative.
We would spend less time in Zanzibar, and would stay in Stone Town rather than in the resort, which was far from sights. We would not have needed the time in Dar-es-Salaam at all. We would have skipped Treetops and Gibbs Farm, but otherwise the time we spent on safari was phenomenal.
