Reviews for Exciting family vacation in Tanzania


review 18 Dec 2017

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

Arriving in the Serengeti in a huge storm and seeing cheetah chasing gazelles immediately!

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

Our tour operator will give you brilliant advice and tailor your vacation to your needs, I would recommend them. If I redid the vacation I would leave out the Arusha part, after being in the wilderness for several days, we found the city a bit jarring but we did not know we would feel like that and it was a very personal thing, others may be glad of the hustle and bustle. The tours to the foothills of Kili were actually much further away from Kili in a very flat landscape - This part needs to be more accurately described.

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

Yes, as much as it can - everything about our stay was as authentic and Tanzanian as possible. All of the locals we spoke to spoke of the benefits of tourism and also of their precious, unique, environment.

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

This was a vacation of a lifetime. Our two sons (8 and 10) never got bored despite spending 6 days in total in a car on safari. They learned so much about wildlife, conservation, land pressures, climate, Tanzanian culture and politics. This was a fantastic adventure to share as a family. Our guide, Godfrey was such good company and had 25 years worth of in depth wildlife knowledge - we all really missed him when we went onto the next part of our adventure. We stayed in some fantastic places - I like the fact we could look at the itinerary before hand and request changes and Liddy was soooooo helpful, especially when we got delayed a day due to passport issue. As mentioned above, personally we would leave out the city part and think the Kili foothills section could be more accurately described. I would recommend this vacation and we haven't stopped talking about it.
