Access2Tanzania--HIGHLY Recommended

Jump to last reply

I am just back from a 2 week safari with Access2Tanzania visiting Arusha, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Zanzibar. I will post a more detailed trip report at a later date (still dealing with jet lag and the insult of being back in the office) but I wanted to promptly sing the praises of Access2Tanzania for those of you who are planning trips.

We were most attracted to Access2Tanzania's company philosophy, which emphasizes giving back to the Tanzanian community while offering highly competitive rates.

Karen was tirelessly helpful and completely invaluable during the planning stages of our trip. She was always willing to answer my many questions and help creatively craft the best schedule at the best value for us.

We are, of course, most grateful for our guide and new friend, Saidi. He is truly exceptional at the work he does. We were consistently stunned at his ability to spot wildlife. Frequently, ours were the only vehicle to get to see something spectacular because other guides missed the cheetah crouching in the brush, etc. He knows so much about the flora and fauna of Tanzania and was always sharing interesting information about the natural world around us. We also enjoyed learning more about the culture and people of Tanzania from Saidi who is an excellent ambassador. He ensured that we were happy, safe and informed throughout the trip. It quickly felt that we were not being guided by a representative of a safari company but instead escorted by a capable and knowledgeable friend.

With the assistance of this forum, I researched a great deal before committing to Access2Tanzania. My experience demonstrates that we certainly made the right selection. I highly recommend that you consider Access2Tanzania for your trip.
