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

seeing all the animals - going on safari is the best vacation we have ever had - the elephant orphanage was one of the highlights and is to be recommended. We are already planning another safari for a couple of years time. Seeing so much in a week was brilliant - even the long hours driving were memorable due to the sights and sounds of Kenya. Zanzibar is beautiful and worth a visit - people so very friendly

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

research, research, research and find the right safari for you. Get exact information/itineraries. check all prices and facts. They are expensive vacations and with so many variations to choose from, it is worth talking personally to operators, rather than relying on line.

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

yes - Kenya and Zanzibar rely on tourism and a well managed vacation benefits all.

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

The vacation was good - safaris are tiring so a week on Zanzibar was a wonderful way to relax. We had some initial teething problems with the travel company which did spoil the vacation a bit and we were disappointed that not everything went to plan. So hence more research and talking to operators next time.

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

Camping on rim of Ngorgoro crater and seeing in crater black rhino and leopard. Awesome sunsets.

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

Read itinerary carefully and be prepared for long, dusty truck journeys fondly referred to as having an "African massage" as roads are very bumpy and more craters than hard road. Perhaps choose a vacation which centers at one place for 2-3 days and journey out from that center.

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

We shopped for food locally and brought in business for local people.

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

I am glad that I did the vacation but would not recommend it as there was an awful lot of long distance travel. It would have helped to base ourselves at one place for 2-3 nights. Traveling to Tanga was a complete waste of time and would have been far better to fly to Zanzibar from Moshei and spend another day around Marangu or even in the Serengeti plain. Not enough time to write journal until the very end. Few laundry opportunities, could wash clothes but not enough time spent anywhere to dry them. Got quite adroit at drying "smalls" dotted around truck....
