What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
The ballon safari was very good but also quite expensive but something you should do once in your lifetime. You feel you are like a bird. We saw a male lion, two cheetas one with a fresh kill and numerous other animals. It was a quite magical experience. Zanzibar was also excellent with all the past history and the alley ways. The food in some hotels was very good.
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Our tour leader did his best but had not gone to this part of Tanzania so was lacking in knowledge of where to find certain animals in the Serengeti.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
If I were going in the Summer time again I would definitely have a face mask as the roads are VERY dusty and we were constantly covering up our noses and mouths because of the dust from the passing vehicles .
Do you have anything else to add?
Tanzania is a fantastic destination but we felt this trip could have been improved by changing certain parts. Firstly we never got a chance to stay in one location (apart from Serengeti ) for more than one night. There was not enough time to relax in any location. We were constantly moving. The first day at Arusha was a bit of a waste of time. It would have been better to have gone to Tarangire for two nights . On the whole a good trip but too fast paced.
We have noted your comment regarding how you thought the trip was fast paced. We have informed our Operations Manager who suggests if customers want some relaxation time, they are more than welcome to sit out of one of the game drives. We appreciate that we do stay in several locations, however the accommodation we use is of a good standard for this tour and you get to appreciate the different surroundings.
Thank you for your comments about our Tour Leader. We are disappointed that you thought he lacked local knowledge. Each tour leader must have a first trip to a new area within a season as it would be impractical for them to continue with the same tours year after year. In preparation, they have considerable briefings which, combined with the benefit of experience from previous leaders in the form of a comprehensive tour manual which carries a wealth of detailed pre-prepared background information, ensures they can carry out their responsibilities of facilitating the smooth running of the tour effectively. The main role of a tour leader, as we state in our Pricing and Information supplement, is not one of a courier or guide, but that of an organiser checking the logistical arrangements for the tour and ensuring that everything runs smoothly.
