    4.0 - Good

    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 disappointment was that we only had one 4h game drive in the Serengeti while the itenerary promises two half day game drives.
    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.

    On my way home from working in Canada for a year, I wanted to do something different. I chose the Maasai Migration tour in Tanzania and it was the best choice possible. Absolute Africa had great gear, buses, staff and they were well organised in everything they did. Starting in Arusha, the tour was full of highlights including the Ngoro Ngoro Crater and Serenghetti National Park. The trip is moderately taxing with nights spent camping in the wild, with numerous animals sniffing at your tent in the wee hours of the morning! Zanzibar is a great place to stop with awesome markets and great beaches to relax. Stone Town can be a little bit dicey, with narrow streets that form a maze without any landmarks to assist you with finding your way. Along the way there are opportunities to do extra tours including climbing Mount Kilaminjaro, swimming with Dolphins and visiting Prison Island. The staff from Absolute Africa were very helpful with organising the day to day activities and dealing with the niggles that can happen in Africa.
