I am fairly well-traveled July 2018

At the beginning of this past summer, I went on a trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar with a group of my business school classmates through the Immersion Journey program.

I am fairly well-traveled, but had never been to Africa, so my expectations were high about the uniqueness of this experience. As I look back on my two weeks on this trip, I think it will be extremely difficult, maybe even impossible, to ever exceed the experience I had in Tanzania and Zanzibar, and I attribute this to all of the logistics, itinerary, guides, experience and passion Immersion Journeys brought to my trip.

I would absolutely go on another Immersion Journeys vacation in the future, as they knew all the areas we visited so well and had personable, knowledgeable guides that we bonded with, all in all giving us such variety and unique perspectives throughout the trip.

Immersion Journeys certainly provided an amazing “journey” for myself and my friends, and I will always look back on this experience in such amazement.

Having just returned from our wonderful trip to Tanzania, Zanzibar and Rwanda, the natural reaction is to thank you for helping us with the planning and execution of such a great trip.

From the moment we started discussing our vision as to how we would like to experience those areas, you have swept us with your enthusiasm and your vast knowledge. At every step of the process you have demonstrated professionalism, passion for travel and incredible patience to our equally incredible amount of questions. Your prompt response has facilitated results which enabled us to book the hotels and flights without any unnecessary delays.

Once we have arrived at the destinations we were met with the same kind of courtesy and professional conduct. The guides were always polite, engaging and proficient in their knowledge. As you well know, we are armed with an unlimited arsenal of curiosity and thirst for learning and we were not disappointed.

It was amazing to visit the animal kingdom and witness the incredible balance which only mankind can destabilize. Our Safari guide worked tirelessly to ensure that we encounter as many types of animals, birds and plants as possible.

The lodges were a welcome oasis after a long day in the sun and dust with the eager to please staff and the wonderfully prepared meals.

Zanzibar was such a romantic and exotic place, the hotel which rested on the beach was beautifully appointed and a perfect place for resting and watching the sunset. The visit to Stone City and the Spice market took us back in time as we strolled along the narrow streets and absorbed the atmosphere.

We thank you so much for your contribution to our travel experience and are looking forward to enlisting your help in planning our next experience in the wild.

AMAZING! Our first trip to Namibia was amazing and wonderful thanks to the very professional expertise of Immersion Journeys. We met friendly and interesting people from all over the world and from all walks of life; experienced beautiful and diverse landscapes and breathtaking sunsets; hiked to rock engravings that were thousands of years old; went on game drives and saw incredible animals up close and personal; tracked leopards and cheetah; lodged in various accommodations including a tented camp with a watering hole right outside our porch; found snakes and lizards in desert sand dunes right next to the ocean, and lots more. Everyday was incredibly interesting, truly extraordinary and unique.Planning the details of such a complex trip was daunting for us until we engaged Immersion Journeys who made the arrangements seamlessly and expertly. Thanks to them we had an awesome, amazing, unforgettable, memorable family trip of a lifetime!

Thanks to Immersion Journey’s attention to every detail, our Africa safari was flawless. Not surprisingly, the amazing vistas and exotic animals in the wild were the main attraction, but the unexpected surprise was actually living the culture and engaging with Kenyans and Tanzanians. From the Immersion Journey safari guides, to the majestic Masai villagers, and to curious students on a field trip at Lake Nakuru, the natives of these countries welcomed us as appreciated guests in their homelands. English language? No problem anywhere we went. And what a bonus it was hearing them converse in Swahili, which made us know that Italian and French no longer have exclusive claim to the most beautiful languages. Hopefully, my photographs tell the story of these warm and gracious people, that were so important to this grand experience!

It was a fabulous trip for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being back in Africa and hearing Swahili being spoken. Our guide was excellent. He made the trip all the more successful.

We had a wonderful trip and wish it were longer! We really loved the sites and people in India and are fairly confident we’ll be back (wish we got that multi-year visa!) Rumit and the Immersion Journeys staff in India were all very helpful, and we were impressed by their coordination and attention to detail.

Our emphasis is to ensure that the experience remains authentic – it should be as close to a coming home for you as it would be for us.

We ensure a personal touch for every itinerary by working individually with each of our clients, recognizing that each traveler – individual or group has a specific agenda. For any traveler today, the choice of where to go and which travel company to use is unlimited and varied. We have an extensive portfolio of former clients who would be happy to provide references.

Every travel company strives to offer their best and brightest – at Immersion Journeys we let the client be the judge of our expertise.

Rumit Mehta the Founder Born in Kenya of Indian descent & raised in Tanzania, Rumit Mehta has a love for Africa that is unmatched. Despite living in the urban jungle of New York City, he still manages to return to Africa and India both for family visits and by request from many of his clients. Rumit grew up leading safaris for friends and colleagues where he refined his keen wildlife spotting skills in the bush.

Originally trained as an architect, Rumit worked in the design and construction industry for 13 years while at the same time dabbling in travel planning for select clients. Very soon, the travel bug caught on and after much deliberation he decided to do it on a full time basis as it was more exciting than visiting muddy construction sites. As they say, the rest is history…

An avid thrill seeker, Rumit plays a pivotal role in developing custom itineraries for luxury and academic clients leveraging a wealth of knowledge and professional networks in both Africa and South Asia to design complex itineraries. With his deep knowledge of the hospitality industry, he is frequently invited as a guest speaker at business and academic forums. Rumit is also Vice President of the Association of the Promotion of Tourism in Africa (APTA)- Northeast Chapter
