    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.

Questions & Answers

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

    • Can you please advise if you are able to offer an upgrade during the camping portions of this trip?

      The Savannahs and Sands tour is an accommodated tour. Only the Activity Package, which is an optional part, is a 4-day Serengeti Camping experience. No upgrades are available. If travellers don't book this, they will remain behind at the accommodations in Arusha with one of the crew members. Optional day tours are bookable.

    • Is the a pre/post accommodation needed on this tour?

      You will need to spend at least one night pre-tour in Nairobi and one night post-tour in Dar Es Salaam to join and depart from the tour. This can be booked independently or through our services. Please contact us.

    • I'm travelling solo, is there a surcharge?

      If one person will be travelling, the single supplement will apply.
