The tour was fantastic as well as the guide and the rest of the crew. They have done everything they could to make sure the whole group spent a memorable holiday. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in travelling to East Africa. Ps: please add gloves in the what to bring section as this is necessary for the gorilla trekking. We all had to use hand socks (!) ”
Our tour guide, Makenzy, was really amazing.
Our cook, John, surprised us with a very good food every single day.
Our driver, Tom, was also amazing.
These three people really made our trip.”
Hess was amazing. He was very organized and efficient. Very impressed by his people skills and his ability resolve issues and avoid any conflicts. I know that some of our group thought that he was not well organized or interactive enough. I learned that they were young and this was their first time traveling with a tour. We have traveled several times with Gate One, Roads Scholars, and Affordable Asia, so we have extensive experiences in which to make a comparison. Hess was highly organized, what they took as complacent, was his astute awareness as to when to back off and let us have alone time or chances to interact with each other. Everything we requested was accomplished. How he kept it all straight is beyond most people's abilities. One of the best guides we have ever had. ”

Recommended places to visit in Tanzania
Tanzania offers everything you could possibly ask of a safari destination - remarkable national parks, abundant wildlife, pristine beaches, towering mountains and ancient cultures. Here's some of our favourite places in Tanzania to get you inspired.
Bordered by the western escarpment of the Rift Valley and encompassing the shallow, alkaline waters of Lake Manyara, this is one of Tanzania's smallest national parks yet has plenty of appeal with large concentration of candy-coloured flamingos, mud-loving hippos, tree-munching giraffe and tree-climbing lions. Despite its size of just 329 sq km, the variety of vegetation is quite diverse with dry savannah and boggy marshes.
The vast, seemingly never-ending grassy plains of the Serengeti National Park are one of Tanzania's most unforgettable sights. Punctuated by lone acacia trees and rocky outcrops where lions laze, the Serengeti is one of Africa's top safari destinations, home to the great spectacle that is the migration of hundreds and thousands of zebra, wildebeest and gazelle every year.
Nothing quite prepares you for the first glimpse of the Ngorongoro Crater, an ancient volcanic caldera that is home to an unparalleled concentration of wildlife including one of the densest populations of Masai lion. At 610 metres deep with a steep ridge, the crater forms a natural enclosure that contains animals ranging from black rhino, hippo and buffalo to zebra, gazelle and cheetah.
Standing at a height of 5896 metres, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and forms the centrepiece of the Mt. Kilimajaro National Park. Each year some 25,000 intrepid hikers visit the park to conquer the summit, making it Tanzania's most visited national park. Comprised of three volcanic cones, Mount Kilimanjaro stands above cultivated farmland and verdant forest home to ample wildlife including elephant and leopard.
