We are back home after our Tanzania trip and would like to let you know how we enjoyed our safari with Tanzania-Experience. We were more than happy about the flawless organisation on-site: all transfers were reliable and on time, even the pick-up from the airport very early in the morning.
At the lodges, the staff was always aware of our arrival and we didn’t need to provide any vouchers or confirmations which made us feel very welcome. The lodges had an exceptionally high standard. We’d like to highlight the Tarangire Simba Lodge as “excellent”. Its location, flair and very friendly staff definitely convinced us. At sunset, we watched zebras, warthogs and even elephants passing by our deck and quenching their thirst at the waterhole.
In our individually planned route along Tarangire, Manyara and Ngorongoro, we especially enjoyed having two days at Tarangire National Park and the Crater. Both national parks’ landscapes were very impressive and we could go on game drives in different areas of the parks over the two days. It was very impressive to be able to observe the animals (not only the Big Five) up close in their natural habitat. Personally, we thought Lake Manyara was less worth seeing (we aren’t too much into birding which is probably the reason). However, the chosen route meant that we had short transfers from one park to the next.
Our greatest highlight however, was our guide – Alpha. We hadn’t expected that a local would speak German so well. We have great respect for him – especially since German isn’t an easy language to learn. He really did tell us a lot about the wildlife. None of our questions was too much, no question was left unanswered. He was incredibly patient, stopping wherever we wanted and giving us all the time we wanted.
Finally, we would like to thank you for the good care and advice you provided ahead of our trip. We experienced being in contact with you as very uncomplicated and straightforward. Thank you for your efforts: we will recommend Tanzania-Experience to others!
