When we started planning for our African Safari, we contacted several operators. Only Thomson Safaris came back with an itinerary that mirrored our desires and added a few exceptional options we never thought of!
We had a fantastic - awesome safari! All three of our guides were fantastic, especially Leonard. They are proud of Thomson Safaris. While we were visiting a local school, Leonard gave a talk to the 7th grade class. It is apparent that he loves, and is proud of, his country, the people...
We were very excited to book our safari with Thomson Safaris to Tanzania. This was our first trip to Africa and our first safari. However, my wife and I have a lot of experience camping, hiking, wildlife viewing, and fly-fishing. My wife is also a serious photographer, while I am a lifelong hunter, fisherman, and outdoor enthusiast.
We have traveled with Thomson Safaris for five extraordinary safaris, and I believe our 2013 trip was one of the best safaris yet! The Thomson Nyumba Camps (especially in the East Serengeti) and Gibbs Farm are our very favorite places to stay.
We had a wonderful time with Thomson Safaris. It was the perfect mix of visits to local villages, schools, and of course great wildlife viewing. The food was really excellent. We enjoyed the different flavors and the effort to please a Western palate without being unadventurous.
