travel company

Has anyone used the company, Africa Travel Resource and would you recommend them. I live in Australia. Would it be wiser to deal with a local agent?

I have not used them but know a couple people who have and all was fine.

To answer your question of local or ATR, why don't you contact both and see the itineraries and pricing and how you feel about each. ATR will use a local company anyway.

There are several mentioned on the forum that include Good Earth (also in Tampa), Roy's (they can offer a US contact), Sunny Safaris, Naipenda, Kiliwarriors (also in Virginia), Leopard Tours, Access to Tanzania, and Warrior Trails. If you check the trip reports, you'll find some more mentioned. The Tanzania Assoc of Tour Operators lists a whole lot.

ATR is UK-based.

Another UK-based safari planner, with their home office in Arusha and who will be handling your handles ground arrangements - guide/vehicle, book hotels, park fees, etc. etc. - can easily handle, is:
