Kenya & Tanzania safari adventure Aug 17 March 2018

Kenya & Tanzania Adventure

Saw all the infamous National parks & so much awesome wildlife, too numerous
to mention.
Great group, relaxing tour pace & even the camping was great!
The way the trip is organised & run by the crew is flawless, I am so
impressed & will definitely have consider this type of trip again.
Seeing the wildebeast crossing the Mara river during the annual migration was
the most awe inspiring thing I have ever seen, made up that we managed to see
this...thanks to the crew !


Erillah was a fantastic tour guide, relentlessly cheerful & knowledgable,
supported by Wilson & Esther - awesome chefs who looked after us so well, &
Sam, the driver, who kept us safe at all times & gave us the best 'African
massage' !!


Take binoculars & pack really light, you really won't need many clothes as
you can easily wash en route.
We all got affected by motion sickness due to the rough roads, so I would
recommend taking travel sickness medication.

Great trip! March 2018

Kenya & Tanzania Adventure

It was a great trip, wonderful to see the animals in their natural habitat.
Some long days of driving but well worth it in the end. Erellah was great
leader, pointed things out that we would've never seen without his help.
Wilson, Sam and Esther were great assets to the trip and made it all the more
enjoyable. It was my first trip with Exodus and plan on more.
Seeing all the animals!


He was great and very well informed.


Expect some long days of travel but worth it.

So Many Animals March 2018

Classic Tanzania Safari

Have to rate that trip as excellent everyone needs a bit of luck on these
trips and we had it by the barrow load though this was bought about by the
staff.
Hmm difficult to say maybe the Sea Eagle relieving a Maribou Stork of the
fish it had just caught or the mating lions in Tarangire or the up to one
hundred Elephants in the afternoon at the same place or a pair of male
Cheetahs and three Leopards or the Rhino at Ngorongoro or a female lion
draped over a branch of a tree sound asleep her three cubs practising the
same trick a Zebra under the tree no longer taking part in life or sleepless
at 4 am walking outside with a lion a few hundred yards away quietly
proclaiming that he is the boss. So many lions some just laying by the
trackside invariably full up and sleeping, thousands of Wildebeest on the
move. Maybe the best was the young Elephant charging around probably alarming
his owner even had the cheek to rush our vehicle, a few minutes later a much
larger character did the same. The Crater is an amazing place all the
animals, except Giraffes, in a relatively small space. Very good time to
visit so many young animals moving around.


Jackson keep him, unfailingly polite and helpful which i can guess can be a
little bit difficult at times, Alex was an excellent, driver, spotter, and a
mine of information.


DO NOT forget the torch and the loos are good all the way.


Take the pain and spend the money.

Fantastic trip and crew! April 2017

5.0

Kenya & Tanzania Adventure

The four crew members, Erellah, Albert, Boniface and Amos were fantastic. Erellah is an excellent tourguide - very patient, funny, helpful: a delight and any group can consider themselves lucky to be in his care. Albert is a brilliant cook and made delicious vegan food for me: not easy to do in East Africa. He was fun and creative and all mealtimes were a pleasure. Boniface is by far the very best driver I've ever encountered: very patient, extremely skilled and was able to take us safely along very poor roads, while also taking care of the truck itself. Amos is very friendly and helpful and worked very hard to support the crew. I'm sure he will be a fantastic tourguide soon. All of the crew were fun to talk to and made us feel very welcome.
The trip itself was spectacular - we were very lucky and managed to see many beautiful animals, including elephants, black rhino, white rhino, lions, cheetah and a leopard. I was lucky enough to spot a serval from the truck, but it slipped away into the grass before anyone else could see it. The pace of the trip was good - we covered a huge distance, but spent enough time in each place to get good wildlife spotting. The last few days on Zanzibar were a welcome treat too and really rounded everything off nicely. I will always have fond memories of the group and the trip. The group members were all great: friendly, interesting people I enjoyed meeting and hope to keep in touch with.
Seeing a leopard in a tree.

Erellah is a star! He's very bright, knowledgeable, extremely helpful and fun to talk to. He really made the trip.

Beware of the African sun - it is vicious. This time of year was very good, because it's low season, fairly dry and all the animals have had their babies, which is lovely to see.

It would be great if it could be possible to request a specific crew for trips in the same area. I would love to assemble this crew again for other trips to Africa, such as the mountain gorillas in Rwanda.

Classic Tanzania Safari

This was not only our first trip with Exodus but our first safari and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after and our leader and drivers were extremely knowledgable which made for a very enjoyable and interesting trip. It was a busy schedule visiting four different areas, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and finally Tarangire Safari Park, each one slightly different. Our group were in two Land Cruisers on Game Drives every day, we could sit and enjoy the scenery and stop to watch an amazing amount of wildlife. It was a privilege to see the wildebeest migrating it was amazing to see them across the plains on the Serengeti as far as the eye could see; a photograph just couldn't capture the image, you had to just spend time looking at the view. I would certainly go on a safari again.
Seeing all the large animals elephants, giraffes and the big cats in such close proximity for the first time was amazing. If I had to say which of those was the most amazing I think it would be looking at a leopard in a tree, he was beautiful.

Jackson our group leader was very helpful and friendly, he did his job wll.

When travelling on a safari or any other holiday where you are packing and unpacking frequently it's quite useful to buy some packing cubes for some of your clothes. To my husband and I they were a godsend, they kept things well organised.
