Itinerary Review for Tanzania and Kenya By Nigel T
Everything I dreamed of and more!
This is an independent review by Nigel From Singapore who traveled to Tanzania and Kenya in August 2018.
Terri Hudson was Nigel's consultant
Africa is everything I've dreamed of and more! The East African Explorer tour brought me to the Maasai Mara National Reserve/Lake Nakuru National Park/Amboseli National Park in Kenya, and then to Lake Manyara National Park/Serengeti National Park/Ngorongoro Conservation Area/Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, so it covered a lot of ground (with breathtaking views) and increased the chances of spotting as many animals as possible, also I was pretty fortunate to be able to see the Big 5 and many other animals up close. The lodgings I stayed in were great with all the basic amenities, however do take note that not all lodges have Wifi in the rooms/strong connection, so use this opportunity to tune out from the world and socialize! (Most have Wifi in the main lobby or bar) The food is pretty standard hotel food e.g. Continental breakfast/buffet dinner for most of the places to cater to the majority of the Western travelers, but if you're not picky the food is great, especially if you try some of the local stuff.The people of Kenya and Tanzania are very warm and friendly, especially my guides who were extremely knowledgeable and made sure that I left East Africa with some knowledge of the animals I've seen, the places we visited and the local culture. Lastly I would like to say a great big THANK YOU to Terri Hudson, my Safari365 Travel Specialist who was very accommodating, meticulous and patient. She ensured that the entire trip was smoothly arranged, answered all of my silly questions and without whom this trip would not have come to fruition. I highly recommend booking your African safari trip with Safari365, and I would most definitely return to them for my next trip whenever the next opportunity rises!
