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.

Kenya - Tanzania & Zanzibar February 2017

Kenya & Tanzania Adventure

A truly memorable experience with some long journeys along some very bumpy and dusty roads but the rewards of close encounters with so much of East Africa's wildlife made it all worth while. Our group was 17 strong with 4 crew who worked tirelessly to ensure that we were able to enjoy our trip to the full and the truck had plenty of room for all of us to be able to enjoy the wildlife and catch some magic moments on camera. Camping is a great way to enjoy and experience the wildlife and although some of the camp sites are very basic the location more than makes up for it together with the fact that often we were the only campers.
Camping in the serengetti and on leaving our camp for the early morning game drive coming across a pride of 8 lions just 300 metres from camp. The early morning sunlight shining on the old male lion with a beautiful golden hew was just magic.
Seeing more than 24 lions in one day with cubs of varying ages and managing to see 'the big five' although the leopard sighting was difficult as it was high in a tree shrouded by foliage, but at least we saw it.

Lelei was a fantastic guide/group leader who together with our driver 'Bonnie' really made our trip. At one stage in the Mara our truck developed a leaky radiator, but Bonnie kept topping it up so that we could continue our journey and together with Lelei managed to get a replacement shipped out which Bonnie fitted in camp. Lelei imparted much local knowledge and was a good game spotter and together with Bonnie was able to put us in the right place at the right time to see so much wildlife without putting pressure on any of the animals and respecting the rules of the parks.

If you are only thinking about this trip, stop thinking and go and do it, you will enjoy it. Take heed of the advice regarding the temperature at Ngorongoro crater as it DOES get cold at night! Make sure you take a good torch as many of the camps are unlit.

The trip notes are accurate and there are some long journeys which are along unmade roads and the camping is basic but the rewards are worth every bit of it.

Wonderful trip- trip of a lifetime. Our group worked well together, despite a wide range of ages( 16 - 60).The participatory aspect made one feel one was contributing to the experience.
So many of different kinds! Seeing the lepoard in its tree with its kill, an antelope, on the next branch. A cheetah trotting across the plains. Lions with their coats stained red from a recent kill. The colours of the birds.
Visiting a medical clinic offering free health care to the local Masai

Chris was superb - extremely knowledgeable and very ready to share his knowledge with all of us. Equally willing to help us spot birds. A wonderful sense of humour shared by all 3 staff - especially when the hyena ran off with the bin! 

Head torch is essential.  The sleeping mats provided were exceptional - we had taken extra air beds but never needed them.
 Heed the warnings about cold nights - they are cold!  remember it can rain!
 Hot showers do not always materialise.

Luggage recommendations:  the travel notes left us slightly confused.  Our main bags went into a huge compartment along with tents etc. Absolute measurements did not matter. Under one's seat in the truck was a small locker, (which could have taken a small day pack)  which one padlocked. This is where we kept our passports, money and any valuable. The truck was never left unattended- someone even slept in it at night for security. 
Money; Again, the travel notes were not entirely accurate;The best currency to pay for the Local trips and in the shops and markets was the local Shillings- items were cheaper using these compared with US dollars.  It was definitely best to bring US dollars, but then get them changed into the local currency- usually possible about every second day.

Outstanding!!!This was a dream to go on safari and it excelled !! The team were amazing to the end and the group fantastic!
That first sighting of the lions a family too !! with  cubs, how aww struck to see them playing trying to get up a tree with Mum at the top sleeping. That is what I came to see the cats !
We also saw a great moment with a giraffe approached a leopard sleeping in a tree, it nudged its tail so the Leopard looked up and just watched the giraffe walk on, great to see.
 I saw the big 5 in the environment they should be in and that to me is just fantastic to witness.
As a group we had some really funny moments and that will stay with me fantastoc memories thanks to all for that!!
Exodus run a great trip and I would travel with them again!!

Jacob was fantastic, you couldnt ask him a question he didnt know the answer too. He was entertaing and very helpful the best guide by far I have ever come accross.  The rest of the crew was just as good Simon the cook amazing creations in the middle of nowhere!! and always gave alternatives to those that needed them! Kennedy the driver/Mechanic dealt with every hurdle the rough terain through at us, 2 shock absorbers, 2 tyres and a gear box (this did require a new truct, but Exodus were on it straight away!)

If you are thinking about it dont do it!!  So much fun this trip the crew and group made it even better if that is possible!

KENYA & TANZANIA ADVENTURE August 2016

Kenya & Tanzania Adventure

The trip was a one in a lifetime trip. Each day was filled with activities or travel. My favourite part was the game drives though Zanzibar was amazing and I needed the rest after all the travel.
The most inspirational part of the trip was the trip to the Serengeti. One day wasn't enough though and it felt very rushed getting through the park in time to camp and then having to leave by lunchtime. Another day would have been greatly appreciated.

Mose our group leader was totally amazing and supportive. He knew his information and had everything covered. A great guy.

I would advise potential travellers to be aware of how much travel was involved. Also to bring spare batteries for their cameras as oppertunities to charge cameras are intermittent.   

I would recommend that Exodus changes the iterninary to stay another day in the serengeti and to fly directly from Arusha to Zanzibar. We saw nothing for the two days after Arusha and the constant travel was a waste of time.
