This was an amazing experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great safari, and isn't afraid of camping outdoors with the animals - An elephant came into our camp at night and drank from our water tank!

I thought it was very well organized, the itinerary was followed as outlined, but we never felt rushed during the game drives, which was great. We watched a soap opera play out among Impalas something we never could have seen without the patience of our leaders.

Tour was extremely memorable. The guides and cooks were extremely accommodating (ex. setting up tents, having warm water) and kind. The guides always answered our questions about the safari, the country, etc. and were extremely patient with us. They made sure that we were happy the entire time and they were extremely passionate about their country and the animals on the safari.

The overall experience exceeded my expectations. It was a trip of a lifetime. It's difficult to put into words. There was so much to take in that I became overwhelmed several times to almost tears (of joy).

I never had a big desire to go to Africa. I only went because I was part of a group of six who wanted to include a safari in the Serengeti as part of a longer trip. Well, I arrived in Arusha and I was instantly converted! My experience with the tours was simply life-changing. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought I would be sleeping under the stars with animals grazing nearby. Never would have I thought I would be witnessing a leopard kill an antelope and carry its prey high into the branches of a tree to eat. Never would have I thought I would feel at one with nature and truly appreciate how the circle of life can thrive when nature is left alone. I have to go back to this magical place! This could not have been possible without the guidance and care of our guide.

It's the most amazing trip I've ever done, it was a real eye opener and frankly. I want to go back! They made it so easy with our tour guide. We've seen more than expected! The food throughout the camp was amazing. Truly thanks to all involved.
