Larry & Maureen – Drumheller, Alberta | Tanzania | July 2015
Jen, Overall, the trip was the thrill of a lifetime. Our time with Athman as our driver/guide, couldn’t have been much better. We were somewhat disappointed to not have Peter, but the disappointment was short lived. Not only was Athman a meticulously careful and accomplished driver, but his knowledge of, and vision of the terrain, constantly put us in the best possible position for pictures at almost every animal sighting, and we had many, many of those. Accommodations were outstanding throughout the safari part of the vacation with the tented camps being a particular delight. Service at every overnight was outstanding. I, personally, found the meals to be very good, better than I expected, but the ladies often found the lack of salads a bit disheartening. Our favorite of the tented camps was Maramboi, but I particularily liked the outdoor shower at Mapito. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about Dongwe resort at Zanzibar. The spice tour was also a tremendous highlight and that particular guide was an absolute delight. Over all, it was a tremendous trip, one that we will spend the rest of our lives reliving and enjoying. Maureen and I took almost 1000 pictures and have gone through them over and over again, enjoying something new each time.
