We loved our Safari trip but did not enjoy the beach destination quite as much. Our travel company partners with a tour company in Tanzania which is a really wonderful company.
The Safari was the best part of our trip. We had issues with the planes, our luggage was lost for 4 days and some other mishaps but our in country guide from the tour company really made our trip. He was an expert on all of the animals and ecological areas we visited.
We would not spend a week in Zanzibar. The beach was ok - Stone Town was very interesting and the spice tour was nice but we were not impressed with the beaches. I did tell our travel company that we had been to to Thailand, Greece, Indonesia etc before and were looking for beach recommendations that were of a similar grade but Zanzibar was not it. They also did not tell us just HOW many little planes we would have to take to get to and from Zanzibar (3 on the way there and 2 on the way back). We would have just flown to Seychelles if we knew ahead of time the amount of time we would spend on hopper planes.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in Tanzania and especially your time with our guide. We like to think that we've aligned ourselves with the best guides in the industry as guides can really make or break a trip; especially when on safari! We are sorry to hear that the airlines lost your luggage en route, however, our team on the ground did their best to connect you with your belongings as soon as possible without disruption to you. We are also disappointed to hear that you weren't thrilled with the beaches on Zanzibar. Zanzibar offers a relaxing way to end a safari and much less expensive than the Seychelles which is why we had focused on this beach destination. We always inform travelers well in advance that the beaches and ability to swim in the water off Zanzibar is very much tide dependent but we can appreciate that it's not always easy to fully understand this until you've experienced it for yourself. We do apologize if this experience did not meet your expectations. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, it truly is invaluable as we are always striving to improve our services.
