Team Australia did Cape Town, Botswana, the Serengeti and Zanzibar - WOW!

Written on: December 08, 2014   |   I visited in July 2013 In July 2013 Team Australia (five intrepid adventurers) set off on a trip to Africa - a dream for me! Our trip was managed by Donna Duggan of MAASAI WANDERINGS based in Arusha Tanzania and Clifton Sylk who is based in Brisbane, Queensland Australia. I cannot sing the praises of this company highly enough. I must have driven Donna up the wall changing dates and destinations and asking a million questions. Donna always answered my emails promptly and gave advice when needed. The same applied to Clifton who managed the Cape Town, Botswans, Cbobe and Victoria Falls section of our trip and Donna Arusha, Serengeti and Zanzibar section of the trip. We had back up from both people all the way while in Africa. We loved it all.

In Botswana we stayed in Moremi Crossing Camp, we would highly recommend it. They even put on a surprise lunch for us on one of the islands overseen by a very lunch elephant! Moses our guide was outstanding and knowledgeable and very funny!!!

In Tanzania we had our lovely Peter (in the photo) to take us through the Serengeti. We stayed at Tarangire (lovely lodge) Ngorongoro (take a jacket)and Nasikia Central Camp in the Serengeti.
Peter was a wonderful guide and companion (we still keep in contact). If you go to the Serengeti stay in a camp for at least two nights don't stay in a lodge you need to experience the magic of hearing
the animals at night around the camp. What more can I say I would love to go back and maybe I will. Thanks to Donna and Clifton we had great flights between places we visited. All on time and no problems with connections anywhere. Africa now has a place in my heart, the people we met and the beautiful animals.
You will miss something very special if you don't go!!!

My husband and I, and a friend of ours, booked a safari through Maasai Wanderings. We started planning the trip over a year ago, and throughout the entire process Donna was always very helpful and so quick to respond to all questions.

We spent 2 nights at the Ndovo Camp at Tarangire National Park, 2 nights at Plantation Lodge near the Ngorongoro Crater and 3 ni... read more

Maasai Wanderings puts together a spectacular safari that I'll always remember. Driver/guides knew everything and could find anything you wanted to see.

We stayed at Nasikia Luxury Camps which is a sister company of Maasai Wanderings. Accommodations for 5 star and dinning was right up there at the top.

I highly recommend Maasai Wanderings to anyone planning... read more

We had been thinking about a safari for several years, and in January decided to use Maasai Wanderings based on a friend's recommendation. The experience was incredible. We saw an unbelievable variety and number of animals including lions, zebras, elephants, hippos, cheetahs, leopards and buffalo.

A buffalo was grazing outside our room at Rhino Lodge - so close... read more

I travelled with an amazing group of people in June and visited the Serenegti National Park and adjacent areas. We explored the region in vehicle and on foot.

The team with Masaai Wanderings and Nasikia Camps that we stayed in were just superb. Every moment was filled with awe and the knowledge of the guide was supreme. We travelled the extent of the Serenegti ... read more

We had an amazing safari experience in Tanzania thanks to Perfect Africa and Masai Wanderings. I booked through Perfect Africa - Natalie was a pleasure to work with, she was friendly, responsive and answered my (many !) questions and accommodated my constantly changing itinerary.

Our guide, Kurwa, picked us up after our pre-arranged Kilimanjaro hike, and we had... read more

It is with reluctance that I post this review as the guides and ancillary staff we encountered in the Masai Wanderings tented camps were superb: well trained, professional, courteous, good fun and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to be with them. We saw some marvellous sights.
The problem was the cavalier attitude towards clients (clients paying a lot for th... read more

What a wonderful safari. Maasai Wanderings organised the trip according to all requests and gave even more. The whole trip exceeded any expectations we had. The two drivers we had in Kenya (Antonio) and Tanzania Chris) were extremely respectful, intelligent, knowledgeable and ethical. We were impressed with their patience of our continual questions and requests for... read more

Our group of four (family and friends) worked directly with Donna at Maasai Wanderings to customize a safari to fit our interests. From arrival at Kilimanjaro to departure from the Lobo airstrip for a Zanzibar beach stay, everything was beautifully planned. We began with an day trip to Arusha Nat'l Park to 'meet' our first wildlife and take time for a ranger-led h... read more

Our trip, organised entirely by Maasai Wanderings, was the most incredible holiday my husband and I have experienced. From the moment we arrived, everything was organised and such a smooth process. All our accommodation was 5 star and the service from staff always of such a high standard.

Our guide collected us from the airport and spent the next 7 days with us... read more
