    4.5 - Excellent

    My husband and I went on this trip to see the Serengeti in Tanzania, as well as the rich history of Zanzibar. Encounters partners with Nomad Travels for the local connections and we found them to be very professional & well organized. Each step of the way we had excellent guides and decent accommodations. [ The only real exception was for our final night in Dar Es Salaam, where the hotel had run down in its care. That location should definitely be changed for future trips. It was also not in a good part of town where we could leave the premises easily.] Overall, it was an exceptional trip--the wildlife we saw was breathtaking, the Tanzanian people were so kind, and the beaches of Zanzibar sparkled. We definitely would recommend this trip to others.
    Encounters Travel commented on this review
    Thank you for taking the time to get back to us with your feedback, we really appreciate it and recognise that it helps us in improving our tours for future travellers. We’re delighted that you had such a good time with us in Tanzania and that the wildlife and places visited lived up to your expectations. I’m sorry that your final night in Dar es Salam wasn’t up to scratch, this certainly isn’t the kind of feedback that we like to receive from our clients and we’ll definitely be looking at this property again before using it for future travellers. Since you booked we’ve actually changed the way in which we sell this trip and actually no longer include the pre or post-tour nights in Nairobi and Dar es Salam, this does give our clients more flexibility in choosing their own preferred accommodations for these nights, so this should eliminate these types of issues in future.
