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
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 don’t 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
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
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 £2699 - £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
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
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
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 £2249 - £2749 including UK 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 £3949 - £4099 including UK 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
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
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
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
Serengeti Trail, Kenya & Tanzania safari
Memorable parts? Wildlife drives. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Anne Brautigam
From £387 - £520 excluding flights
Shira route trek up Kilimanjaro
The highlight was reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro in the early morning sun. Super holiday - highly recommended to those who seek a bit of a challenge. (more)Sam Adams
The whole trip was fantastic. Most memorable parts include: Reaching the top and "Skiing" back down the scree! Brilliant food! Great company! (more)Sam Lewis
The most memorable part of the holiday was being on top of Kilimanjaro. It was so hard getting there but the beauty at the top made it worthwhile. I would give this holiday 4 stars. I had a brilliant time! (more)Rebecca Martin
From £2495 - £2925 including UK flights
Climb Kilimanjaro, Rongai Route
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
Victoria Falls to Nairobi overland tour
Memorable parts? Seeing the big 5 in Ngangongoro; watching a leopard hunt in South Luangwa. Tips? You are on the move a lot and if you sit in the back of the truck, you will be shaken about a lot. So not recommended for anyone with back problems. Don't pack too many things, as you are in a different location almost every night (though you will have plenty of storage room either way, in contrast to some other operators). Local benefits? Yes, we did some things that benefited... (more)Susanne Irving
From £1275 excluding flights
Nairobi to Victoria Falls overland travel
I can't really say that I have returned relaxed and refresh... was really tired (in the last days did abseil, rafting, micro light, travelled for 36 hours,..) but really enjoyed it! Memorable parts? Saw a lion on a tree, the lake with hippos in new year, the new friends. Tips? Be prepared for the rain (yes, it rains in Africa) and for long hours on the truck. Local benefits? We didn't have too much contact with local people since we stayed in private camping, but I think... (more)Carla Almeida
From £1685 excluding flights
Selous safari & Zanzibar holiday
It was the magical experience I had hoped for, it being my first trip to Africa, with lots of things to do, see and experience. I felt very safe at all times, had a brilliant two weeks and will definitely want to do something similar again in the future. (more)Susanne Devine
We loved the Selous Game Reserve where you could view a wide range of animals but hardly see another tourist. We particularly enjoyed the boat safari where we saw hippos, crocodiles and a wide range of beautiful birds as well as elephants, impala and buffalo drinking at the lake side. (more)Pam Simmonds
Safari at the Lodge and drives to see game plus snorkel for day and bbq at mneba island off Zanzibar were most memorable...Excellent. (more)Gordon Needham
From £2354 - £2934 including UK flights
Kenya & Tanzania safari, culture and wildlife 14 days
We saw all the animals we could hope for, most of them in great numbers and really close up. Perhaps the very best was when we came upon first a mating lion couple and then, a few km away, the rest of the pride with mums and cubs nursing and playing. Absolutely amazing! (more)Marie Lenstrup
The highlight was staying in a bush camp site, watching three lions less than one kilometre away from the site. (more)Pablo Moreno
From US $3695 - US $4495 excluding flights
Climbing Kilimanjaro, Machame Route 7 days
The whole trip was wonderful. I was passionate about wanting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and got 2 friends to agree and with the added incentive of raising money for a charity...Just do it! It is an experience and if you like trekking it is absolutely fantastic....would love to do it again. (more)Chetana Parmar
Some of the best experiences I am ever likely to have.... (more)Graeme Cooper
Great holiday - I was travelling alone and have not done much walking before so was a little worried - the guides, office and porters were really supportive. Route was stunning - really good - can't fault it. Thanks !!! (more)Adam Dearnley
From US $1895 - US $2820 excluding flights
Rongai route Kilimanjaro climb, Tanzania
All of it was memorable! But can't beat seeing Uhuru Peak and knowing that we'd make it! Incredible experience. (more)Mandy Gerada
Reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro was an incredible once in a lifetime moment almost beaten by the first cold beer at the bottom of the mountain! (more)Keith Addis
It was excellent from start to finish. Hard, challenging but worth it, thanks. (more)Steve Clark
From £2574 - £3229 including UK flights
Machame Route Kilimanjaro
Reaching Uhuru Peak after a gruelling 7.5hr slog up the mountain in the dark. Exhausting, exhilarating, emotional and TOTALLY worth every second!...Unbelievable - the hardest but by far the most rewarding thing I've ever done. If you're not sure whether to do it take my advice and book now! (more)Katie Richards
The holiday as a whole was fantastic though; amazing time in a brilliant country. The staff and porters were great, guiding us and carrying our bags everyday. (more)Chris Moss
Doing the scramble on the barranco wall, and actually seeing the sign for the Uhuru peak appear in the mist was the most memorable part. (more)Lynda Hughes
From £2339 - £3029 including UK flights
South East Africa overland tour
Memorable parts? There are several: 1. Serengeti - the landscape and animals 2. Zanzibar - a good mix with Stonetown and the beach 3. Meeting the people in Malawi and Zimbabwe 4. Meeting Ian Harmer from African Wanderer.com in Zimbabwe and getting close to rhinos 5. Seeing Victoria Falls Tips? Definitely bring a water bottle and also a flask/thermos style mug (with lid) for making an extra tea and coffee at breakfast to take with you when spending hours in the bus. Also be prepared... (more)Mrs S Burns
From £941 - £1105 excluding flights
