We chose Thomson Safaris due to the various locations visited, the experiences that the Signature Safari offered, as well as the reasonable cost. It looked like the right value and experience for the price relative to others.
Everything was really well organized and planned. I loved all the different activities, and there was a nice mix of them with the wildlife viewing. The visits to both the Maasai Boma and school during our stay at the Eastern Serengeti Nature Refuge were very informative and special. I think starting the trip at the Thomson Eastern Serengeti Nyumba, as we did, is fantastic. Not only do you see an abundance of wildlife immediately, but arriving at Gibbs Farm later in the trip is the “icing on the cake.”
Ojukwu had the answers to every question we asked! He made our safari all that more special. He also has a great sense of humor. Derrick was an outstanding support guide and was extremely personable and funny. Both guides are unbelievably great at spotting wildlife from a long distance.
We will never forget this trip! Thanks to everyone!
