9 Day Tanzania Safari Review

Philippa from United Kingdom travelled with Discover Africa in August 2023

Professional, experienced help throughout the booking journey.

I came across Discover Africa by chance online. Susan was very knowledgeable and helpful as I was unsure exactly what I wanted for our family holiday. Together we came up with an itinerary. Susan responded to emails quickly and we spoke on the phone and also on video calls. We felt confident in making the commitment to book. She was there for us all the way and answered all my questions. Our daughter sadly broke her ankle shortly before the safari and was unable to travel, Susan supported us and informed all our accommodation and provided invoices for insurance. During the Safari Susan kept in touch by WhatsApp.

The Safari itself in the Serengeti was fabulous-our driver-guide was experienced and knowledgeable and we were well looked after. Our favourite camp was Camp Zebra-very intimate with only ten tents. Our son had a tent next to ours with a connecting tunnel. Zebra and Wildebeest roamed the camp day and night. We heard lion, hyena and hippo overnight along with the crickets it was an animal concert! The guide looks after you from arrival to departure and takes you on game drives twice a day. (8-1 then 4-6) then a sundowner round the fire before dinner. Meals were wonderful and obviously Susan had let them know it was our wedding anniversary as we were presented with a wonderful cake with singing and dancing and a bottle of fizz!
We saw so many animals!
