Our Safari exceeded our expectations. Words can't describe all we saw and experienced. Our travel company's agent was excellent in asking questions as to what might be of interest to us. We were able to identify three goals - to meet the people of Tanzania - gain an appreciation of the land and environment - and to see the animals in their natural circumstances. With this in mind - our agent suggested a diversity of possibilities and then helped us appreciate which ones might be most attractive to our interests. One of her abilities was the use of clear details to help us gain confidence and trust that this would be a wonderful trip of a lifetime.
Our guide for the Safari was outstanding in his ability to help us see animals and understand better their behaviors. He had a significant ability to provide an appropriate viewing advantage - which anticipated the next activity of the animals - while respecting their space. He was always attentive to our interests and needs. He did it all!!!
The accommodations where we stayed were superb - and the food was excellent.
Each of our goals - meeting people; appreciating the environment; and the viewing the animals had significant moments. We really enjoyed our visit to Karatu and learning about the people's daily way of life. All of the parks we visited - Tarangire; Ngorongoro Crater; Namiri Plains; Serengeti - provided amazing environments to experience the interdependence of the people and the animals with the environment. Our guide was most helpful in this.
We saw all the significant and many of the less significant animals. We learned patience and appreciation of how they live with each other.
We also had a most enjoyable and learning experience at Oldupai Gorge - the location of findings of early hominids - with a serendipitous tour of the Gorge and Mary Leaky's Camp.
We enjoy photography and came home with an abundance of wonderful photographs.
The Wildebeest and Zebra crossing the Mara river captured our full attention. We also appreciated the majesty of the Lions and the respect the other animals have for them.
We also enjoyed meeting the other people - staff and guests - at the camps and sharing stories of Safari - and also life.
Probably add an additional day or two to gain a fuller appreciation of all the locations we visited. But we suspect that this is a common desire...
