Tanzania Safari Companies

Jump to last reply

Hi folks,
Just back from snowbird trip and planning next years.
Main destination will be a Tanzania for a safari and beach time.
Many have recommended Roy's Safari so I contacted them and was surprised that the email answer came from A-Way-To Africa Safaris whom I have never heard of. They say they work exclusively with Roy Safari but I also read on this forum that people have worked with African Serendipity as US agent to book Roy's Safaris.
So my question is: Does anyone know of A-Way-To Africa Safaris ?
Should I just disregard and contact Roy Safari again to insist on dealing directly with them ?
Is this a common practice now, to refer inquiries to another company to handle ?

I have to think that I would pay extra to use a USA middleman to book a safari with a Tanzanian company - no ?

I have read some forum posts on Tanzania safari companies, Roys is often mentioned positively as well as Thompsons.

Any comments to assist would be appreciated. Also looking for recommendations on Zanzibar accommodations.
Thanks. Christo.
