1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

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. If I were to say the second most memorable part, it would be all the colors. The people of Tanzania love colors and it was apparent everywhere.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The best tips I could give is: - Pack lightly (water is in short supply so bring things you can wear more than once) - Bring lots of US dollars (you can use US dollars everywhere - even in the tribal communities) - Buy on the local market (if you plan to donate to a school or community, buy the supplies locally to support the community rather than bringing them from home)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, yes and yes. We could see first hand how our holiday benefited local people. We visited a Maasai tribe that has a schoolhouse built from funds donated by Maasai Wanderings. We also bought solely on the local market. As for reduction on environmental impacts and conservation, everything we did made us mindful of how to better conserve the water and electricity we used. We could also see what impact we and the community made on the environment around us.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic! Amazing! Awe inspiring! The trip of a lifetime!

review 8 Nov 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

For me it was walking out of our campsite on the savannah with just day packs, and seeing ostrich, giraffe and gazelle as we walked. It felt like we had truly got away from it all. My husband loved the moment we were just 8 feet from a cheetah in the Masai Mara National Park. I think the kids loved everything.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We visited several projects that the tour operator is involved with and everyone we met spoke of the positive relationship.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

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.
