Review of Mind & Soul Travel

Written on: September 06, 2016   |   I visited in December 2015 In December 2015 we went on safari with Mind & Soul Travel ltd and, as I'm organizing our pictures, I'm thinking of all the good times we had. As a thank you to them, for organizing our wonderful trip, I would like to warmly recommend them and share with you our thoughts.

Big picture: we wouldn't change a thing. They booked thoughtfully for us, especially considering our son. We started off with two days in Tarangire and the intimacy with the animals was a powerful way to start the trip. We noted how patient our driver guide was with us as we first entered the gate to the park. He waited as we painfully tried to spot animals and never once ruined the surprise by saying not to worry as we would see so many more and so close-up. This gave us a nice introduction to the whole game viewing process. We really appreciated the difference between the compactness of the animals compared to the Serengeti, especially the elephants. We could enjoy their behaviours much more. The Tarangire lodge was superb, the staff outstanding and the food was great. The views from our room and the dinning area are incredible.

Lake Manyara was also worth the stop and a few hours were just the right amount of time. Tloma lodge was in great condition and the dining area charming with the fireplaces. Again, great food. We appreciated that we could box our own lunches for the next day. Pool in great condition as well.
The Serengeti Kati Kati camp was stellar. We wished we could have stayed another night, but realize our total time didn't allow for that luxury. Again, our driver guide was spot on with his timing, ability to find the animals, sense of humour and patience. Ngorongoro didn't disappoint either. We saw so much there as well.

Overall, the roads were in better condition than we expected, so the longer days in the jeep were not wearing on us. Our driver planned the breaks well, too. We found the jeep very comfortable, plenty of water and food. All the comforts made for happy game viewing.

The local flights all went well. Zanzibar was fabulous as well. We could have explored more. Great little hotel, The Sunshine, nice and helpful staff.
Truly a remarkable trip. We feel very blessed.” //Katarina

I am still buzzing from my safari with Mind & Soul Travel. From the start the team has been wonderful with replying to our emails and providing us with all the information we needed before arriving in Tanzania. Susanne was especially helpful. We was on a short 3 day safari as we wanted to go to Zanzibar.

Our driver guide, Toyota, was a brilliant companion dur... read more

I went on my lifelong dream safari with Mind & Soul travel in 2013. They recommended I travel with a group of amateurs photographers and I had a wonderful time!

Susanne, who's in charge of the travel company, helped with my planning and many, many questions. She was so helpful in arranging extra visits for me to children's homes so I could distribute gifts I ha... read more
