Trip Report Thumbs up for Thomson Safaris

Jump to last reply

My wife and I took our first trip to Tanzania in October 2010 with Thomson Safaris as our safari operator.
We couldn't have been more pleased. Everything was absolutely perfect. The nyumbas, the staff, the guide, the food, heck even the Land Rover was cool. We did the Highlights of Tanzania safari which is 12 days door to door.
Is Thomson more expensive than some of the others? Sure. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not! Thomson never let us down. Not once. They were always very responsive and helpful when we had questions and concerns. In fact, one of the major reasons we chose Thomson was that they did respond so quickly to our questions when other companies did not. If I'm going to spend a large chunk of our income on something, I'm going to need exceptional customer service. They never failed to provide it.
I won't bore you all with a blow by blow of our trip as it seems like there are far more experienced travelers here than us but definitely feel free to ask us any questions you may have about our trip with Thomson. With people asking a lot of questions about who to travel with, Thomson Safaris needs to be on your list of options.

They are a great company to work with.

Some of the photos I managed to get during the trip can be found here:
