The travel agency was very thorough in providing the pre-trip information we needed well in advance and in following up as the trip approached providing baggage tags, note books, guides and luggage inserts. Their recommendation to use someone to guide us through Nairobi airport for our connection to Arusha (which we did) was a life saver and made the connection very easy considering that we were on two different airlines/itineraries so that our luggage could not be checked through. The driver/guide they provided in Tanzania was very nice, knowledgeable and helpful. They booked us into some good accommodations both in Tanzania and the Seychelles. Overall, the trip was interesting and enjoyable, although tiring at times.
Seeing all of the wild life in their natural environment (we saw the big 5 and more) was very interesting and fascinating. Visiting the Masai in one of their villages was a unique experience. The Seychelles provided a relaxing way to unwind at the end of the trip. Snorkeling and seeing the large land tortoises were highlights of our stay in addition to the beauty of Le Digue.
If we were to do the trip again, we would probably shorten our stay in Tanzania by a day and extend our stay in the Seychelles. Also, we would try to arrange a more efficient travel schedule as we wasted too much time traveling from Tanzania to the Seychelles.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
I am so glad you enjoyed the trip and thank you for the wonderful comments.
We both worked a long time in making this trip to The Seychelles and Tanzania a reality. I know The Seychelles Island visit was your dream.
It is very unfortunate that there are not better connections from Tanzania to The Seychelles as they make a fabulous combination. As explained to you it is a difficult combination. Going through Nairobi and overnighting is the only way to combine the two. We could have deleted a day on safari but it is hard to visit all the places you requested on a shorter program. The pacing would have generally been too much moving.
I certainly hope that all your expectations were met, especially in The Seychelles.
