This was a once in a lifetime trip thanks to this travel company and their recommendation to go to Tanzania! My family of four (my husband, sister and brother-in-law) originally wanted to go to S. Africa, but because we were planning to vacation around February and March, our travel planner, who planned our trip advised us to go to East Africa where we could also see the Great Migration and the birthing time of all the animals (it really was incredible how many babies we saw!). We agreed to go to Tanzania and then relax in Zanzibar and we are so happy we made the change. Words cannot describe the amazing experiences we had in the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater, and Zanzibar and we owe it all to the great advises of this travel company. If there is anyone with any quelms about going to East Africa, I can say that we were all very well taken care of!! For example, there was one day my sister decided she couldn't join us for our last safari in the Serengeti because of a very severe tooth ache and she decided to spend the day in her tent at Elewana. Our main server checked up on her every hour to see if she needed anything, bringing her food and drinks to make sure she was confortable. She said she was so grateful for his care. Another example were the bush flights we took whose pilots were so understanding about our fears flying in small planes that they took extra time to fly around the clouds so we wouldn't experience any turbulence. And lastly, there was one night at Bushtop, the rain was pouring so hard that none of us wanted to fly the next morning so the manager offered to drive us to our next destination (which would have taken his driver hours to get us to our destination) but he knew we were freaking out about the flight. Fortunately, the clouds cleared and we didn't have to take him on his offer. Every person we encountered, went out of their way to make our trip memorable and we will never forget this! (By the way, we got to see the Big 5 and so much more!)
The most memorable part of our trip were the incredible number of baby animals we saw on the trip. We even got to experience a zebra give birth!
If there was one thing I could differently, I would have been better prepared and bought a better telescopic lens for my camera. I was very fortunate while at The Highlands at the Ngorogoro Crater, there was a staff member who lent me his Canon Lens to use while on the Safari (I couldn't believe it when he offered it to me to borrow for the duration of our trip!). The people there are fantastic!
