Having never been to Africa before, we were a little nervous before our safari last year. Once we got there, however, we forgot all our concerns as we could see we were in able hands. The people from Africa Adventure Consultants took great care of us and their knowledge of the surrounding area and local people made our trip the adventure of a lifetime. Camping in the Serengeti and having lions and hyenas around camp was one of the best experiences we've ever had. There were so many other unforgettable moments such as canoeing on Lake Manyara and a game drive in Tarangire National Park where we were so close to elephants we thought we could touch them. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is a challenge yet to be undertaken, but one that will make our African experience twice in a lifetime. Kudos to Kent and Kelly for the amazing work they do.
The safari was amazing! The lodges, the service, the animals all were fantastic. The best lodge for us was the manor and we could have stayed there longer, the service there was amazing and the accommodations were amazing. Overall, it was an unbelievable trip!
This was my favorite trip ever. I will never be the same and can’t wait to get back to Tanzania as I love the people and especially, the children who are so joyful, eager and motivated to learn! Thank you for arranging this trip for AfricAid.
The climb up Kilimanjaro via the Western Breach was more than I bargained for, but definitely worth it once we arrived at the summit. The guides were particularly helpful.
Folks were so polite. Most of the vans were roomy and getting our luggage from place to place was easy. Highlights of our safari: The amount and variety of animals we saw was truly beyond our expectations and our guide, Gaudence, was SO knowledgeable, helpful, and FUNNY! The entire trip was amazing and unforgettable. We are SO thankful that Brian steered us into designing our own trip and are SO thankful that we got Gaudence for our guide! It just could not have been more perfect. Generally, the people at the lodges / camps were so friendly, helpful, and fun also. We took the advice given that, if we wanted something, we should just ask, and it was true that everyone was so willing to help us. We especially enjoyed the people at Kirumumu and the walk we took with the Maasai there. We enjoyed the tented camps the most because they offered total comfort with a more outdoors experience - we were able to hear animals at night, including a lion one night. Finally, the restaurant on top of the Hurumuzi was fabulous, both for food and atmosphere.
Just a quick note to let you know that Daniele and I are back from safari and that we had a fantastic trip! Thank you both so much for all the planning and coordinating you did on our behalf. I was especially touched by the surprise birthday party that the camp staff at Chitabe threw for me. If you had any part in that, I do thank you. Personal touches like that are truly memorable.
The students and school visits, the amazing people, the beautiful country. I especially enjoy Tarangire and this visit was no exception. I also believe Ngorongoro is one of the most spectacular places in the world! The wildlife was amazing. Everything was well planned. I really enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with the incredible safari participants – we had a group of such amazing people – we were very fortunate!
From start to finish, it was an unforgettable experience. All pre trip arrangements were perfect. Our guide was great. The people we met have left an impression we will never forget. And of course, the landscape & the animals. It was the perfect trip.
The whole trip far exceeded our expectations. Kent put together the perfect itinerary and managed to give us a taste of everything. My sister and I had been to Africa years ago but there was simply no comparison. The attention to every detail for every aspect of the trip was so much appreciated.
Our trip was fantastic and your representatives took care of our every need; from the drivers who met us at the airports to the lodges and their employees. Well done! We have already decided where our next African adventure will take us-Uganda and Zambia-although it will be a few years away, but be assured that your company will be our choice.
