Trip Report Back fromTanzania--thank you!

Jump to last reply

Not a trip report. But I wanted to let those of you who patiently answered questions (and those of you who asked the questions I would have asked if I'd had more foresight) that my friend and I returned from our low-budget, semi-last-minute trip to Tanzania. We had the best time imaginable! Everything was far, far better than we expected, and we fell in love with the beautiful country and its wonderful people.

Thank you so much for all the encouragement and advice. And if people ask questions on this board about whether it's possible to enjoy Tanzania without much money, but they don't want to backpack, stay in holes, etc., please say yes, yes, yes. If my budget were even tighter the next time (yep, planning the next time already), I'd still go in a heartbeat, finding a way to cut corners somewhere.

P.S. We used a local operator I found on TATO, lucked out with an absolute gem of a guide, and had a great cook. There were only 2 of us on safari, but because we were camping for part of the time, we had an extended Land Rover (seated 9). If people have specific questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them by e-mail.

Again, thanks to all.
