Chris F. and Courtney S.
How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
Comment: Excellent trip. Hit all the things we wanted as part of the trip.
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Competitive Cost
Comment: Attention to detail in designing the exact trip we requested. Were much more flexible than other tour operators with regards to our specific needs.
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Five or More
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? None. Everything was very well explained by Anouk.
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. Everything in Tanzania was excellent. Each resort was unique and phenomenal.
At Virunga Lodge – attention to detail was lacking (communal bathroom – no hand towels, mixed up our laundry, breakfast routinely not on time for planned early departures). Lodge itself was beautiful and the food was good.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? The food the Migration camps was the best. It altered nightly and had great local options. Excellent variety and attention to detail.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing.
Mohamed – Tarangere/Lake Manyara/Crater – he was excellent
Alex – Serengeti – also excellent. Altered each drive to make it different/unique from the previous day
Emanuel – very friendly/enthusiastic – knowledge not at same level as guides in Tanzania
Gorilla Guides – all phenomenal
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? We both feel that the gorilla trekking was great.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? Pack light. You don’t need as many clothes as you think. Just enjoy the experience, don’t focus on looking through a camera.
