Our recent travel with this travel company was superb from start to finish. All connections and arrangements went like clockwork and the guides, hotel, camp staff and services, and food were top notch. The whole experience exceeded our expectations and we feel compelled to share our enthusiasm with others interested in a safari adventure. We highly recommend this agency as a travel company whose local roots were an asset.. My husband has travelled much in Africa on business and using a local company was a big priority. The attention to service throughout our trip was exceptional and the camp facilities were "glamping" level(glamourous, luxury camping) with all amenities at our disposal.. Safety was of the highest level yet we were up close and personal with many animals and we often were serenaded at night by hyenas calling and lions roaring.
We shared this trip with our 26 year old daughter and it was FUN in every way.. We enjoyed different experiences together.. The SOPA hotel on the edge of the Ngorogoro Crater, a days drive in the crater with our guide who proved to be a source of much knowledge re animals and their habitat and who we feel had an uncanny ability to spot them in challenging surroundings..!! He was the very BEST and we were pleased to have the same guide over a period of days as we left the crater and explored different terrain within the Ngorogoro Park. The drive to Serengeti was adventuresome in that the roads were bumpy and the trip long but the vehicle had no problems negotiating the roads and all our drivers were cautious. Our final camp...Asilia was remote but amazing.. We saw more cheetah and lions than i could imagine and the expanse and diversity of the Serengeti never ceased to amaze and captivate us. Every part was memorable. We met fun people from other countries and even coincidentally met other Canadians who are our current neighbours whom we did NOT know.. HOw amazing it THAT????
The only thing we did change a bit was that we broke our drives up a bit at the latter end of our safari.. We did see many animals in the first days so we did not feel the pressure to see more as time passed and it was tiring being out on the vehicle for hours on end.. So we would go out early and come back for lunch some days and take a rest before heading out again.. We could easily do this.. WE spent 9 hours in the vehicle one day and we found that after a few days of long drives.. this was too much..
