Bridget & Nathan – Port Washington NY | Tanzania & Zanzibar | June 2016

Hi Thierry, We had such an amazing time on our safari. It was one of the best trips we’ve taken. Our driver/guide Goodwin met us at the airport as scheduled and from there everything went smoothly. Goodwin was personable, funny and knowledgeable. He did an excellent job at not only helping us spot the animals but giving us background on animal behavior and the family dynamics, especially of impalas, lions and elephants. Goodwin was also quite patient, giving us ample time to take photographs and videos. All of the lodges were lovely and offered breathtaking views. We were a little apprehensive about the bucket shower and non-running water at the camp in the Serengeti but it was fine. The staff at each location were friendly and accommodating, especially when it came to us asking for meals without beef. Our favorite by far, however was the Olduvai Camp: such a unique setting and we loved taking the sunset walk with the Maasai. We saw a ton of animals throughout the trip including: leopards, zebras and a rhino but we loved all the elephants we saw in Tarangire especially watching the baby elephants interact with their moms. We were glad we got the chance to go to Zanzibar at the end and spend a few days relaxing on the beach. It was so hard to leave Tanzania and we hope we get to go back soon. Thank you so much for putting everything together. Bridget Shirvell & Nathan McKay
