The cultural component was so important to me in choosing a trip to Tanzania, and Thomson Safaris does a great job with the Cultural Safari. There was a nice mix of wildlife and culture. Everyday was very special and I love how you give back to the people of Tanzania and employ people born in Tanzania.
I loved the cultural interaction and learned much about the people and their way of life. I was very moved by how welcoming everyone was, and it felt genuine. I even had an opportunity to meet everyone in the Arusha office. Very cool! All were so welcoming and shared my excitement.
I loved our guide, Mbaruku, and his sense of humor. I felt very safe. He provided new wonders every day. I have also found a friend!
I am a bit sad that the trip is over and I shed a few tears of happiness when I got to Tanzania and tears of sadness when I left. Everyday brought a special sight, experience, or a moment shared with the people. It was truly a life changing adventure. Thomson Safaris is amazing and made my life dream of coming to Africa extra special!
