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

There was not a single part of our safari that we didn't love! Our guide was incredible, the lodges were amazing and the parks wildlife was just something we'll talk about forever.

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

Do it! Don't use doxycycline as malaria tablets unless you can fully avoid the sun. Be prepared to tip, lots. Make the most of your days by being out by 8am, and taking a packed lunch with you. Talk to your guide, ask them questions, get to know them, learn the local language & cultures. Take sea shoes as there are lots of urchins. A bit of rain won't ruin your day.

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

I think it probably benefitted locals with boasting the economy and also donating to them. Also awareness of their culture. We were respectful of the conservation rules outlined to us.

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

Fantastic! From start to finish, Marie has been so helpful and knowledgeable in getting our trip organised. While on safari we feel that we could not have got any more out of it if we tried. Our guide was the absolute best and we adored him. Our second week on Zanzibar was truly relaxing and we were totally spoilt. THANK YOU!!!!

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

The safari portion was the best, and my favourite was the Kati Kati camp in the Serengeti.

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

Donít do Lake Manyara, or at least donít do it last. Major let down after the Serengeti. Also hiking shoes are not required as you are the the vehicle the entire time. And being more layers to wear.

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

Benefits locals, yes. Bad impact on the environment. Despite being told to bring reusable water bottles, not one place was there an option to fill it. It was all one-use water bottles. It made me sad to see that and see the trash on the side of the road. Lots of plastic and waste in the villages. Conservation - one would hope!

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

Overall amazing, but could use a few tweaks to streamline. Packing list could updated to each trip.

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

The discovery of the diversity of wild animals in Nogorogoro crater and Serengeti.

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

The structure and flow of our trip was ideal for a first-time safari with Children. All enjoyed it very much due to the balance between safari and Zanzibar snorkeling.

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

Except for our last hotel in Zanzibar where developmental work with the local community was heavily advertized, we were not really told about how our holidy might benefit local people or the environment. Would be nice to know more about it, also ahead of the trip.

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

It was amazing!

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

The whole holiday was memorable but the icing on the cake was Zanzibar

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

Ensure you have good walking shoes, all your bathing gear then enjoy every location you can.

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

There is now a lot of tourism in Zanzibar, from when I last visited 20 years ago, I believe that they do benefit from tourism, and there is a tax that is now taken from tourist and i would like to think that the government use this tax effectively to help the local communities and the infrastructure as the tax is labelled.

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

Fantastic holiday well planned and thoroughly enjoyed
