Alison S. Family – Toronto ON | Tanzania & Zanzibar | Dec 2019

My family recently went to Tanzania on a safari planned by Thierry at The Heritage Safari company and we had the most wonderful experience.  Thierry was great to help with all the planning, we asked multiple questions and he has patient with replies and really took our needs into consideration.  We were a big group of 12 so the logistics were a little more complex but he managed them all well.  Our safari consisted of visits to four major parks – Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Tarangire and they were all wonderful in different ways so I would recommend seeing all of them.  Our safari drive Amon was amongst the many highlights.   He had a wealth of facts about the country and the wildlife we learned so much every day from him.  We also visited a Masai village and Olduvai gorge which were great.  Our accommodations were all really wonderful as well.  The service and staff great at each place we stayed.  There is a lot of driving and the roads tend to be rough in Africa so there were plenty of rest stops and the driver made us feel comfortable throughout.  We stayed at four very different places – a lodge, a tented camp, a tented lodge and a standard hotel and they were all great.  Overall Thierry gave us confidence he knew how to plan a great safari and he totally delivered.
