    The trip curation and itinerary was really good. Pre and Post sale service by Natasja was absolutely amazing - she is a superstar and super helpful. Her advice was thoroughly appreciated. Accommodation was as expected - simple but effective camp grounds... Read more

    Thank you for leaving a review, Prateek. We are glad to hear that you found the support of our team really helpful and that you felt you had all the information you needed for your trip. It's good to also hear that you were pleased with the accommodation and enjoyed tasty meals throughout the tour. In terms of the truck seats, we fit our trucks with coach seats which most people tend to find well-suited and comfortable for the long drives, in contrast to the often-used bench-style seats on other overland vehicles. We also have our own workshop in Tanzania and each truck is checked and maintained prior to every trip to ensure it is well prepared for the journey. We are sorry to hear that you were not so keen on Safari Lodge on Zanzibar Island. This is a hotel we have been using for many years and we have booked many passengers in here over that time. It is a simple lodge but is clean and well-located in the centre of Stone Town, and has always seemed to suit our passengers well for this reason. We're glad to hear that Jonasmus was helpful and friendly and we will pass on your comments to him. With regard to Joe, it is often the case that tour leaders do need to be more strict especially when groups merge and become larger. Whilst all passengers are adults, overseeing a large group - including many different backgrounds, opinions and personalities - is not always an easy task. It is often preferable to be proactive in ensuring the rules are laid out from the start rather than having to remind the group at a later point. There is though a way in which this can be done without patronising anyone and we will speak to Joe to ensure that he understands how his trip briefing may be received so he can make any necessary adjustments in the future. As you mention, tour leaders do generally tend to assess each group as to how much help they offer in areas such as cooking, or putting tents up and down, for example. Where the group is very capable, the tour leader will usually stand back and allow the group to take control, however if anyone is struggling then this is the tour leader's role to step in and assist in any way they can. Tour leaders do often get very involved in the food shopping, meal planning and cooking - they know what works well for group meals cooked on a campfire, and what foods are readily available as well, so are at an advantage here. I hope that overall you have come away with good memories from your tour and thanks again for taking the time to leave your comments.

    Overall a very well organized tour and excellent, experienced guides. Room for improvement at the Ngorongoro/Serengeti tour as this is lead by a different operator. In our case an unexperienced driver with little knowledge and English skills. Biggest... Read more

    Absolute Africa commented on this review
    Thank you for your review Rene. It’s great to hear you had a good time on your tour. We have had discussions with the local operator about your Serengeti tour. Sadly your game drive time was unfortunately cut short due to some poor management decisions over the period of your safari. The local operator we use in the Serengeti is usually very good and well respected. Usually everyone is very happy with their services. We have informed them of your comments and emphasised the need for better servicing and organisation to ensure such shouldn't happen again. We know the operator is looking at all appropriate actions to ensure such is the case. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you on another one of our tours in the future.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Would you recommend arriving one day prior?

      Since day 1 on this itinerary has you departing Nairobi, crossing the Athi plains driving through to camp in Arusha, it is recommended to arrive the day before to ensure you don't miss the start of the tour

    • What time does the tour start on day 1?

      The tour departs at 7.30 am on day one so we recommend you arrive the day before in Nairobi.

    • Can you arrange accommodation and transfers?

      We can assist with booking accommodation and an airport transfer if needed.
