Everything was perfect. This ranged from the advice we received from our travel agent when we were putting together the itinerary, through to the superb guiding and driving by our in country contact for 8 days until we said goodbye to him at Ndutu airstrip. We visited 5 areas/parks and stayed in excellent accommodation for 2 or 3 nights at each location. Since the itinerary was put together with our involvement, and our in country contact and the safari vehicle was exclusively for our use, we could dictate where we lingered, choose start times in the morning, and where we wanted to stop. For example, we passed a roadside market and decide to have a look for half an hour.
Our travel agent seemed to recognise from her phone and email chats with us that the animals were to be the centre of this holiday, and they certainly were. Also the lodges and tented camps selected for us were not over the top luxury, but had to be very comfortable and more about 'real' experiences. This is just what we wanted.
The quality of the information provided was excellent and we certainly had one of our top 5 holidays of a lifetime. I will certainly be recommending this company to other friends who want to do a safari.
The difference in geography, vegetation and animals in each of the 5 areas we visited. We loved all of them for their different experiences, and spending 4 nights in a beautiful Zanzibar beach resort was the icing on the cake. In terms of animals, we saw just about every species available. My wife loved the 3 week old lion cubs and lioness, while I will never forget the leopard we came across on a tree branch which then jumped down and walked around as if we were not there. On both occasions we were the only safari vehicle there.
Nothing. I can't think of anything I would want to change.
