How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
Comment: The trip was incredible. Susan, our travel agent, did a great job managing every detail. She made the travel between camps seamless. We also always had a room in one of the best locations of the camps. Absolutely no complaints.
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Repeat Client
Comment: We used African Portfolios to go on a safari to Botswana. We were so pleased with the trip that we used them again for our safari to Tanzania.
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? None
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? None
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. All facilities were very nice and the food was great. We especially loved the Kubu Kubu lodge, the scenery and rooms were beautiful.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? All were similar meals.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. Excellent! Our guide Joseph was very knowledgeable. He was Massai and had wonderful knowledge about the people’s culture and lifestyle.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? If we had to do it again, we would’ve liked to go on a game reserve so that we could spend more time off the main trails and get closer to animals. It would have also been nice to have the opportunity to have sundowner drinks outside of the guide truck. While the hotel in Zanzibar was very nice, it felt too much like an all inclusive resort. We would have preferred something a little smaller and personalized.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? We saw wildebeest crossing a river into a pride of lions.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? Skip Zanzibar. It was beautiful, but we would’ve preferred to spend more time on safari. We were hassled on the beach so we couldn’t leave the resort property and couldn’t enjoy the beautiful landscape. There also seemed to not be any legitimate tour groups when we tried to take a snorkeling trip.
