Itinerary Review for Tanzania By Charlotte S
We Could Not Be Happier With Our Experience!
This is an independent review by Charlotte From USA who traveled to Tanzania in July 2018.
Hildy Rubin was Charlotte's consultant
The first night of our safari we stayed at the African Tulip in Arusha - a beautiful boutique hotel. The room was splendid. The food was delicious. The management was very attentive. All employees were very polite and I noticed this very much in the restaurant. Tarangire Whistling Thorn was satisfactory. We did not mind the tent at all. All the staff members were helpful and very polite. The food was disappointing. Ngorongoro Mountain Lodge was outstanding. All of the staff on a scale of 1 to 10 were at least an 11. The food was very good. The room was great. We were very pleased. Two names I would like to mention. Joary Mshagas was there at the entrance when we arrived to greet us. She also opened the gift shop for me to shop one day. Both of these experiences were good. Her communication and people skills are excellent. The other was Happiness. She took care of our room in the morning after we left and in the evening before we arrived. She also did very well. They were both a delight. The Chaka Camp was excellent and the food was very good. The staff were outstanding. The tent was fine. Our first guide, David was excellent. He did his best to give us a wonderful Safari. We were very pleased with how many of the animals we saw. He was very good at teaching us about our surroundings. We would often turn off the engine and sit and watch animals which seemed unaware of us. We watched elephants frolic in the water for about an hour. I loved it. He took us to the Maasai Village and I am very glad that we didn’t miss that. David told us the best places to shop and where not to shop. Our second guide, Joseph, was also excellent. We are very pleased with the animals we saw. A young lady named La Noye was training with him and I think she will be an excellent guide. I not only enjoyed the animals, I loved all of the cultural experiences. Our Travel Specialist, Hildy Rubin, was beyond outstanding. She was so knowledgeable, professional, warm, and patient. I would recommend Safari365 based on the whole experience and I would say “get Hildy” as your Travel Specialist! To Hildy, we are very grateful to you for our safari. We could not be happier with our experience. You are the best!
