We saw the Big 5 before lunch in the Northern Serengeti! We could see the difference in the other companies that were out there. Most of them would just rush by, stop, snap a picture and move on. Our Thomson Safaris guides never rushed us, we cannot give them enough praise for how great they were.
I have new respect for Land Rovers. I didn't quite get the importance of Thomson Safaris' promise of a window seat for each person until I saw other safari groups packed like sardines in open jeeps, while we switched sides, jumped up and down, shared spaces, etc.
The trip was absolutely amazing!!! The entire safari exceeded my expectations in every way! Everyone at Thomson Safaris is great. I can't say enough about our wonderful guides, Ojukwu and James, they were the best and I miss spending my days with them.
I will definitely be back in touch for the next trip – this time with more people in tow! I repeat, Thomson Safaris is a class act! The Nyumba tents were well-appointed and comfortable and, well, luxurious considering that they were in the middle of the bush. The food was creative, diverse, plentiful, and delicious. Our guides were knowledgeable, attentive and, as a bonus, very entertaining.
