We decided to go on a safari to east africa for our honeymoon but the idea was to combine some adventure with relaxation. We did a safari in Tanzania for 5-6 days and then spent 4 nights in Zanzibar. This travel agency was absolutely incredible. The agents who we dealt with were incredible to work with.
We initially reached out to another company and although I'm sure they are good for most typical luxury honeymoons, they simply didnt have the expertise regarding tanzania or a safari. I think the most difficult part is that there are so many different safari companies to choose from. We got lucky and just googled zicasso and chose this company because of their professionalism, attention to detail and rapid response time. They even set up a conference call to ensure they were covering everything we wanted. Furthermore, they built an entire website dedicated to our trip, including our complete itinerary. They also sent us a complete packet of everything you need to know or to prepare for...clothes, put mail on hold, passports, etc, etc.
Even throughout the trip, they were very responsive and checked in with us to ensure everything was going smoothly. We met the most incredible people and stayed at amazing lodges/resorts. We couldn't be happier and they were very flexible meeting our budget which had changed a few times. I would recommend them highly to anyone who is considering a safari.
Having so many different experiences because we traveled to several different locations was outstanding. Also, having the private safari guide was a MUST and I would only do it that way moving forward. We didnt realize the importance of it going in but it certainly made the trip. We had two guides throughout the entire safari trip (Tarangire/Ngorogoro and Serengeti) who were both outstanding. They are full of knowledge and really made the trip enjoyable.
The only thing we would do differently was to have more cash on hand, specifically smaller bills. We traveled with about a $700 after paying for the VISA's ($200 for both of us) and wish we had more. Most of the trip was all inclusive so we didnt forsee this as a big issue. It was difficult to get small bills as well and because of that we werent able to guy some gifts we wanted to. Specifically in Zanzibar, there are not many available ATMs nearby (closest was an hour away) and therefore we basically ran out of cash we would have liked to spend or to tip with. That said, it is literally the only thing we would have done differently. Everything else was on point and extremely professional.
