1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The whole adventure was a brand new experience for us so its very hard to pick the most memorable part, the first time seeing all the wonderful flora and fauna, every safari trip... If I was pushed to pick the absolute favourite part then it was the stay at the Mwagusi camp, a truly magical experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

US Dollars are the most accepted currency. Have plenty of small bills for tips. In Stone Town arrange a guide for your first tour round the town before you head out . Be prepared for more form filling and questions at immigration entry points even if you have the visa in advance.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The safari aspect did help in the conservation area and work for local people, particularly at Mwagusi where they teach and train the staff from the locality at the camp. Less so on Zanzibar although some locals were employed at the hotel and the resort.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was an amazing adventure which would be really hard to find fault with.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

There were so many highlights, but I have to say that our Balloon Safari over the Serengeti was just magical

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Good binoculars will make all the difference, and you'll also want a good zoom lens on your camera to capture the memories.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I feel that the vacation definitely supported conservation and benefited local people, and our guides emphasised the wise old maxim that we should make sure that nothing was taken except photographs, and nothing left behind except our footprints.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic - I know that my whole family will have amazing lifelong memories of a shared magical experience, what more can anyone ask of a vacation?

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

All of the safari part and swimming with rescued turtles on Zanzibar.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't go to the Western Serengeti if it is not the 'migration' season. From what we heard out there, probably go in February- March for best safari sights.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - definitely supported conservation. Yes benefitted local people. I am not sure re environmental impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent!
