Looking for Tanzania Safari Company for reasonable cost

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have begun searching for a Tanzania Safari Company and I am interested to get feedback from people who have traveled there with various tour companies. We would probably travel with two other couples (6 people) so we need vehicles that accomodate 6 persons. We are retired but healthy. I have found about 15 different tour companies on line and need to narrow down the selections. We can pay up to $5,000-$6,000 per person if necessary for a 10 day trip, not including Air Fare from US. We would probably go in February or March 2013. Reputation and reliability of Tour Company is important because we want to avoid surprises on the trip. We want to deal with an American representative. I've seen lots of information on Tauk and Hippo Creek but they are very expensive.

I've looked at Thomson and Africa Dream Safaris and they seem in the right price range but don't know ANYTHING about their reputation and quality.

Can anyone comment on Thomson and Africa Dream Safaris? Are there any others in this category and price range that we should consider?

Appreciate any help that you can give me.
