“Lots of animals with cute babies. Wildebeest migration was awesome!” - Toniaderring

Awesome safari in Tanzania!!

Views: 493 Visited: May 2015 Reviewed: Jun 19, 2015

In late May, my family (husband, son, myself) visited several natural areas in Tanzania for a safari. Arranged as a 4 day safari, we visited Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Serengeti National Park. While in the NCA we also visited the Leakey museum. It was simply an awesome experience, thanks in large part to the safari company who arranged things (Shadows of Africa) and our guide (Richard). I initially worked with Stacy, who answered my questions, created a plan that met our families needs and wants, and arranged the details so I didn't have to. She was very patient, as I had many questions. When one of our lodge choices suddenly became unavailable (due to fire) she reached out to let us know and helped us to find a suitable replacement.

In-country, we worked with Natasha in the office and Richard as our guide. Natasha was very gracious, and Richard is simply the best! We enjoyed our time with him very much and he is an excellent, experienced game tracker. We were able to see the Big 5, many with little babies, and so much more. My husband and son love the big cats, and I adore giraffes. Richard was so knowledgeable about all sorts of animals, and if he did not know an answer, he used books that he keeps in his vehicle to help find the information we wanted.

All in all, this is not only an excellent trip, but arranging the details through Shadows of Africa is priceless because you are in good hands! If you have the opportunity to have Richard as I guide, jump at the chance. He is the best!
