Tanzania holiday, safari, culture and wildlife 7 days
Very good...I enjoyed both the safari in Serengeti and the diving in Mafia very much (more)Marina Poletto
Fantastic! Amazing! Awe inspiring! The trip of a lifetime! Our most memorable moments were our interactions with the local people. Even though we booked this safari to see the Serengeti, we also wanted to make sure we spent an equal amount of time visiting and getting to know the people of Tanzania. We will forever hold in our hearts how warm and inviting everyone was. (more)Teresa VandenBosch
Fantastic. It was the perfect family holiday with a 12 year old and 14 year old. Always plenty to do, loads of variety, but never rushed. (more)Rebecca Rowland
From US $1860 - US $2480 excluding flights
Big game safari in Tanzania
The time spent on Chumbe was so relaxing in on idyllic paradise Island & with it's eco ethics it is a place with a truly great purpose. (more)Becky Jones
Everywhere we looked there were birds: on the water's edge, in the air, perched in trees. Crocodiles slipped into the water and there were pods of hippos, plus giraffes, elephants, buffalo and impala. (more)Joanne Davenport
For me most memorable was arriving at Mwagusi and seeing elephant, giraffes and abundant wildlife en route from airstrip to camp; for Toby it was seeing a leopard resting in a tree (Ruaha). (more)Claire Roberts
From £2815 excluding flights
Family cycling holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
Wonderful guides, incredible access to the remotest regions and real people... Wonderful - genuinely the holiday of a lifetime and a never to be forgotten special experience. (more)Dan Cobley
Every day brought new experiences. The animals just kept coming out on cue! Brilliant - I donít know how we will top it. (more)Monica Szolin-Jones
Most memorable were waking to the sound of a lion killing a wildebeast behind our tent in Amboseli National Park campsite. Singing and dancing with 500 children from a local primary school in Tanzania. (more)Gaenor Morris
From NZ $3690 - NZ $4490 excluding flights

From £1650 excluding flights
Lemosho Route Kilimanjaro Climb
Excellent experience but very tough. (more)Mair James
The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was of course the ascent of Kilimanjaro on summit day. It was exhilarating arriving at the peak after all the lead up to it and the views were fantastic. (more)Jane Walker
Getting to the summit of Kilimanjaro with all my friends - old and new was most memorable...Do it! And take the Lemosho route - it is the best one. 10/10. (more)Annika Ratcliffe
From £2599 - £3299 including UK flights
Kenya and Tanzania safari adventure
A brilliant holiday, excellent game viewing, a great group of fellow travellers and staff, over all too quickly!! (more)Eileen Emery
The holiday was good - safaris are tiring so a week on Zanzibar was a wonderful way to relax. (more)Sally Moir
The most memorable part was camping on rim of Ngorgoro crater and seeing in crater black rhino and leopard. Awesome sunsets. (more)Lesley Halliday
From £2599 - £3199 including UK flights
Biking holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
The most memorable part of our holiday was the time spent in a very remote area of Tanzania with the Masai. We were privileged to visit their homes and witness their day to day living. An amazing experience! (more)Susan Ducollet-Holliday
Brilliant! I have done supported tours in USA, Cuba, Brazil and Europe and this is the gold standard in terms of support, food, attention to detail, professionalism, friendliness etc. etc. I cannot recommend this company too highly. Go have fun! (more)Jane Thurnell-Read
Lots of most memorables... but the ones that really stick in my mind are first spotting of a zebra in the wild,... sitting 150 feet up on the rock outcrop having a supper picnic watching the sun set sipping wine made from the monastery. (more)Suzette Lang
From NZ $4490 excluding flights
Tanzania and Kenya biking holiday
Memorable parts? Biking itself and meeting the locals on the way was fascinating enough, but camping on Masai grounds and talk to the villagers was a bonus on top. I definitely enjoyed the variety of biking tracks and terrains and the game drives were fantastic. Tips? Well, be in good condition, have a bit of biking practise beforehand and go for some uphills. Otherwise you will struggle a bit... Bring a camera with a decent zoom. If you want luxury this is not for you! Local... (more)Roman Holderbach
From NZ $4490 excluding flights
Nairobi to Cape Town overland tour
Memorable parts? Definitely horse riding in and around Lake Malawi. It was soo much fun. Or maybe bush camping in the Serengeti. I remember my tent buddy and I (Julie), watching the Buffalo wander through the camp, hoping that the guide really was joking about Lions and Elephants coming to the campsite to drink. Or maybe it was the White Water Rafting, or playing football with the local boys when we made an impromptu stop on day. Or maybe getting stung by an evil jellyfish on Zanzibar, I... (more)Judith Wrennall
From £1225 excluding flights
Cairo to Cape Town overland tour
Very good for the adventurous and independent type! (more)Ferry Lubis
Seeing Victoria Falls and all the wildlife in Africa was the most memorable part of the holiday...Fantastic. (more)Andrew Service
From £2750 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Climbing tour, the Northern Circuit
Memorable parts? The views across Africa. Tips? Read the kit list carefully. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Great. (more)Merlin Reader
From £3149 including UK flights
Mafia Island holiday
Snorkelling and diving amongst a myriad of fish in all colours and sizes was the most memorable part. (more)Stephen Kearney
The highlights were staying in the tree houses. Scuba diving in Chole and Chumbe (more)Sunna Altnoder
The resort, people and everything were just perfect, we couldn't have had a better time and hope to return there in the future. The staff of this operator have just been amazing and we can't praise Louise enough, so thank you. (more)Mr and Mrs Horsey
From £1170 - £1495 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro climb, Rongai route
Even the tipping ceremony was wonderful, but the last day of the trek was probably the best. Beautiful surroundings and walking easily down hill with new friends knowing that Kilimanjaro had been achieved. (more)Marleen James
The entire trip was truly a once in a lifetime adventure - every day was exciting... Fantastic! (more)Jasmin Roman
7/10...Yes my adventure benefited local people. (more)Mussarat Khan
From £2199 - £2829 including UK flights
Tanzania wildlife, people and beach holiday
A marvellous holiday that exceeded expectations in all areas! Most memorable was the incredible wildlife in both Selous and Ruaha national Parks, plus the coral reefs we saw around Mafia Island - truly spectacular. Lack of other tourists was a major plus. (more)Liz Taylor
Everything was wonderful. The setting perhaps captures most of it - staying in beautiful places in the midst of the national parks and conservation areas, where the animals were everywhere (from in camp to close by during game drives). (more)Laura Dukess
We were lucky enough to see a cheetah hunting a gazelle. Unfortunately the cheetah was unsuccessful but it made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and you really felt the thrill of the chase watching the animals in action. (more)Ilana Howley
From £4020 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro climb, Machame Route
Memorable parts? The joy and relief of reaching the top of kili, timed to perfection as the sun broke through the horizon. Tips? If you want a challenge this is the trip for you and do the 7 day your body will thank you for it. Local benefits? Yes, we brought money and employment to the area, the mountain set up was great, the only visible sign is where people had left rubbish on route. (more)Daniel Waller
From £1450 excluding flights
Selous Game Reserve safari, Tanzania
Most memorable was having such close contact with the animals as the lodges were not enclosed. In Ruaha River Lodge a male elephant crossed the river while we sat watching from our verandah and went beside our house to wander round the lodge. (more)Sheila Lucas
There were too many moments, the entire trip was memorable and exciting. I absolutely adored Sable Mountain Lodge, it was beautiful and relaxing. (more)Lisa Schooley
Having an elephant peer through the door of our banda was quite a surprise, but my favourite part was meeting lots of locals and learning bits of Swahili and tribal dialect...Tempted to give it five stars! Probably joint first with a long trip to Belize. (more)Jo Maw
From £2570 - £2755 excluding flights
Fitness holidays & fitness courses in Zanzibar
Crawling like a crocodile on the sand, and my failed attempt to climb a tree, stick out in my mind. It's provided a lot of comic fodder to my friends when I tell the stories. I LOVED boxing, the food was absolutely delicious and just seeing the "before and after" videos of myself was very motivational. (more)Tania Zwicky
Go for it, you will discover a different (and fun) way to do fitness in a beautiful environment and spirit. (more)Sandrine de La Pommeraye
Just book it! You will not regret it for one moment! I have never got so much out of a two week trip in my life. Beautiful scenery, great exercise, super food, luxury accommodation and a refreshing new take on local culture and environment. (more)Karen O'Mahony
From £2150 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Shira Route climb
The highlight was the day we reached Uhuru Peak. What an unforgettable experience!!! (more)Emma Recchia
The most memorable part of the climb was probably the feeling of accomplishment when reaching the peak. I felt like I could accomplish anything in life now that I had made this trek successfully. (more)Kurtis Welton
From £1850 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro climb and Tanzania holiday
Memorable parts? Hiking to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro was a memorable (and, on summit day, very challenging) accomplishment. In the Serengeti we saw three male lions attempt to hunt a hartebeest, which was amazing, and an elephant scratch himself on a tree before he charged our vehicle (that got us to leave quickly!). Tips? The "Trip Details" document that the tour operator compiles for the tour has a ton of useful information both for planning the trip (e.g., detailed itinerary,... (more)Jennifer Tice
From £2999 excluding flights
Private vehicle safari in Tanzania
This was my third safari, but it was the one that most connected me to Tanzania. I was there primarily for tha animals but also wanted a holiday that benefited locals rather than international companies. This holiday achieved that but gave me so much more, I am now in love with Tanzania, it's stunning landscapes, its wildlife and its charming people. (more)Julia Runciman
Seeing Lions in the trees in Manyara and the Serengetti was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Sally Foote
Seeing leopards in the Serengeti was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Susan Armstrong
From £1810 - £1955 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Climb, Serengeti safari and Zanzibar
A highlight was the way the experience of safari, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar combined to give a really enjoyable flavour of East Africa. (more)Mike Sage
Absolutely amazing - super balance of safari, mountain climbing and relaxing at the beach in one trip. Don't think it can be beaten! (more)Amy-Jane Valender
From £3999 - £4099 including UK flights
Tanzania safari holiday
All of the animals - first we saw the 'big five' and many many others! The most astonishing thing was the number of animals and their proximity. Far closer contacts than we had ever considered!! Absolutely bloody brilliant!!!!!!!!!! (more)Angela Gliddon
If you want adventure and excitement and an experience to remember forever then you will love it. (more)Kathy Miles
For animal lovers, it's paradise... We saw the big 5. The unbelievable amount of times we saw lions, some right at the side of the road seemingly oblivious to our vehicle and not one, but three leopards and two cheetahs. Beautiful. (more)Carole Charlesworth
From £2649 - £3249 including UK flights
Tanzania & Zanzibar holiday, 12 days
Memorable parts? The company were very flexible when preparing the trip and send us all the information we needed on a timely manner. All the lodges were very nice and the organization was really good. The best part was definitely our driver guide, Hamisi, who explained us so many things about the wildlife and the culture in Tanzania, responded to all our questions, and was really flexible and kind. We made us feel safe all the time and we really had a great time with him. Tips? Local... (more)Marta Miret
From US $3340 - US $3440 excluding flights
East Africa bush camping safari
Memorable parts? Great walking. Fantastic views. Interesting accommodation. Excellent guide Tips? Be prepared to be one of the group. Enjoy! Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Excellent (more)Sue Melville
From £2599 including UK flights
Great Wildebeest Migration Safari in Kenya and Tanzania, 10 days
The best way to see the Wild life in Eastern Africa and the best way to go on Safari. If trekking was possible through the Masai Mara this would have been the only better way to see these amazing animals. For obvious reasons trekking is not possible and going in a car is the second best option. (more)Tomas Gregersen
The safari was a highlight and a very nice guide named Jackson from the tour operator. The guide was always there in time and very helpful. (more)Cathrin Skogly
From US $3330 - US $3430 excluding flights
Serengeti Trail, Kenya & Tanzania safari
Memorable parts? Wildlife drives. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Anne Brautigam
From £430 - £965 excluding flights
Tanzania family volunteering holiday
Memorable parts? Being woken up in the middle of the night by the lions roaring, all the encounters with the wildlife, especially watching 4 bull elephants at the water-hole.The high level of care shown towards us by all the staff at Camps International, and the standard of accommodation exceeded our expectations hugely. Learning some new skills at the school and watching our boys interact with the local children Tips? Make sure you look at the operators web-site as well as rosy's... (more)Tony Stonehewer
From £595 - £985 excluding flights
Tanzania wildlife & beach holiday
It was a fantastic experience which was hugely enjoyable the organisation was flawless. Whenever we were due to be picked up we were picked up, for us, traveling with kids, it was the right combination between feeling like precious cargo and being on an adventure. (more)Azad Khan
Brilliant! Camping in the Serengeti with nobody else near us was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Pam Robinson
Seeing the migration cross the Serenara River in the Serengeti was the most exciting part...Marvellous. (more)Eric Lowry
From £2705 excluding flights

Wonderful hike up Kili and safari (more)Berenice Belizaire

An amazing experience, as I celebrated my 50th birthday at the summit with Hashim, the guide that supported me throughout the summit night, ensuring my safety. I have some brilliant photographs and met some lovely people! (more)Anne Marshallsay
Reaching Uhuru Peak. This was most memorable. (more)Abdi Ali
Excellent. It was difficult to foresee exactly how things would be, but in general it was an enjoyable challenge and very rewarding in meeting other like minded people as well as the kind and hard working porters and guides. (more)Neil Robdale
From £1490 excluding flights
