We have just returned from a month long trip to Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. During our travels, we spoke often of our Thomson Safari and the quality of our experience. It was the perfect introduction to Africa and we still appreciate the high level of service that you provided. The fact that you have your own staff and vehicles makes a tremendous difference. Because your naturalist/guides are Tanzanian, and have years of experience, they are well acquainted with the wildlife and other features of the areas through which your safaris travel.
On this second trip to Africa, we wanted to explore beyond Tanzania, so we traveled with a reputable company who had to rely on services provided by a South African contractor, and, believe me, the service just didn't measure up. The guide was South African, not a citizen of the countries in which we were traveling, and that made a difference, too. The vehicles? Well, let's just say they weren't like yours.
We continue to recommend Thomson to people we meet on our various travels. You're the best!
Best wishes to all at Thomson!
