We saw so many animals from great vantage points

Thomson's Signature Safari & Rwanda Extension Review

Joan & Jim R.

Thomson's Ultimate Safari

We heard about Thomson on NPR.  Your support of public radio caused us to visit your website and to contact Nicole.  She was professional, knowledgeable and prompt with responses to all of our questions.  We booked the Signature Safari along with an extension to Rwanda to trek the Virunga Volcanic Mountains to see the endangered Silverback Gorillas and Golden Monkeys who live in this wild, ungroomed mountain terrain.  We were awed by the opportunity to be so close to the Umubano family of gorillas and the playful golden monkeys dazzled us.

 The Safari to Tanzania far exceeded our expectations.  Kassim, one of our guides, offered information about the animals, culture and environment without being asked.  We learned so much from him.  The food and accommodations were superb, the vehicles were very comfortable and we shared this journey with interesting and friendly people.  The information in the journal was invaluable.  We refer to it even now as we create an album of photos with captions.  We saw so many animals at great vantage points on the Serengeti Plains and at the Ngorongoro Crater; we witnessed not just one but two wildebeest migration crossings of the Mara River; and, we enjoyed the unbelievable sunsets and the glorious sunrises.

 This was a fantastic experience and adventure – perhaps our best trip ever!!  I do hope others will have an opportunity to visit these phenomenal countries and will travel with you because you’re the best!!!
