Holly A. and Charles B. New Canaan CT USA | Tanzania – Zanzibar | July 2014
Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip. It was truly a life-transforming experience.
This is mostly due to Abdul, from the time he met us at Kilimanjaro airport, until he put us on the plane for Zanzibar 10 days later. He is so knowledgeable about EVERYTHING, and so good-humored about answering questions and – especially – about being flexible and even initiating variations in the itinerary to be where the animals are. As we discovered upon arriving in the Serengeti, the Migration had already reached Masai Mara; it began two months early b/c of an early rainy season. On the day of our balloon ride, Abdul picked us up in the northwest corridor by the Grumeti R, and drove us north and actually found a huge herd of wildebeest and zebra numbering in the thousands……and it was as good as being in the midst of the early stages of the Migration. He really made the trip as magical and informative and spiritually transformative as it was for us. We are grateful!
