Lynda E. – Sorrento BC | Tanzania & Zanzibar May-June 2018

I recently participated in a small group safari to the Northern Circuit in Tanzania with an extension to the magical island of Zanzibar. The tour was organized by Jen Lubey of Heritage Safari in Calgary. Everything about the trip was wonderful. Jen’s advice to go in late May was excellent – the weather was perfect, the Serengeti green, the animals plentiful, and we saw thousands of zebras and wildebeest in the Great Migration! Our safari guide/driver Issaya was a competent driver, an informed guide and a compassionate person who looked after us so well. Accommodations were wonderful -on the safari, tented camps on ridges, a lodge on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, a hotel on a coffee plantation, and in Zanzibar, an exotic room at the very top of the Dhow Hotel in Stone Town and a boutique hotel at Nungwe Beach. A highlight for me was the walking safari and the bush breakfast at Grumeti Hills. Of course it was great to be so close to lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, and elephants but I also loved seeing the birds – so large and colourful! I really appreciate Jen’s attention to detail and her support before, during, and after my trip. I will be recommending Jen and Heritage Safari to anyone who mentions wanting to go on an African adventure.
