Thomson Safaris was an excellent choice for our Tanzania TRIP. The Safari guide Robert was terrific during our 8 day, three park tour. He was very knowledgeable about the area and all birds and mammals. The food was better than we ever expected and the accommodations just got better and better. The hike up Kilimanjaro was epic and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and well trained. I highly recommend Thomson.

The Deluxe Safari was a wonderful experience. The tent camps were very comfortable. The staff were courteous and well trained. The food was surprisingly good. Our safari guides, John and Omesmo, were very knowledgeable and fun. We saw a remarkable assembly of animals. There were vast herds stalked by predators. Be prepared for bumpy, dusty roads. The hot shower at the end of the day was most welcome. We took the extension to a resort on Zanzibar. It provided a relaxing, reinvigorating few days before the long plane ride home.
Our only recommendation is that you provide more durable luggage tags.
