The trip.me way of travel
Safari tours capture the imagination like few other tours.
Imagine boarding a boat that takes you to within meters of a rhino grazing, or silently stalking through fields to spy wildebeest in the wild - roaming out into the African plains with lions, gorillas, tigers, giraffes and other wild animals is a uniquely thrilling experience, and our safari tours take you to the heart of the action to see the very best game in Kenya, Uganda, Botswana, Namibia and Tanzania.
For the nature lover and adventurous soul, safari tours in Africa offer an unforgettable experience.
Sander set us up with the perfect driver/guide. The lodges we stayed at were very good (except one, which we have already lodged a complaint with Sander). He answered e-mails quite quickly and took care of all our concerns. He even tried to find us an early flight out due to the virus.Read More Read More Less
Andrea was excellent - from our initial planning phases through selecting great experiences, accommodations and superb guides, to getting us safe home (prematurely, due to the Covid -19 crisis). She guided us through the unavoidable change of plans and assured us she will apply the credit for the remaining portion of the trip to a future date.Read More Read More Less
Anyway as to a review, my wife and I are what I would say experienced travelers. ( Uganda was 129 countries and territories for me and number 71 for my wife)
I was impressed by Uganda, I though that the variety of wildlife and the quality of the accommodations were at least equal to Kenya and Tanzania. ( My wifeâ€™s favorite still is some of the private game lodges outside of Kruger, but I maintain that we probably saw more wildlife in Uganda.
Both the chimp and of course the gorilla trekking were really world class activities. To be face to face to a silverback is maybe like the Great White Shark cage dive off of Gansbei, RSA , but without the cage. The other wildlife was also spectacular. Humility aside, I got some nice shots in case there are any specific pictures , like Lake Albert at night with the fishing boat lights, that you could use.
I thought that the accommodations were all good. Little Elephant Camp was really spectacular and the service there was outstanding. The lodge at Buniyani Lake was also great. We are kayakers and that place has a lot of potential for sea kayak type trips. We went out in the morning and wished that we would have had more time there. Guinea Fowl is an excellent place to both start and finish the trip. The hotel at Murchison Falls was excellent as well.
City Tyson was a great guide and would rank among the best that we have ever had. He went the extra mile to help us get the best wildlife pictures and see all of the sites. He was always there when we needed something. He was clean and neat and the vehicle was suitable for the safari with the roof extension for photography. He went out of his way to get us a roadmap and outlined the route we had taken for the trip which is a great souvenir
Overall the food was good everywhere. The Bush dinner overlooking Lake Albert was outstanding and will be remembered for ever. ( It happened to have been Valentines Day )
She was very Kind, Attentive, and always showed interest in fulfilling my needs. She demonstrated concern if she thought I was taking unnecessary risks, and flexibility in adjusting my itinerary as needed. The guides and the drivers were well informed and quite helpful. and accommodations were very good in each city I visited.Read More Read More Less
We spent six memorable days in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Our driver Nabaraz and tour guides Prashant and Sunil were wonderful... very knowledgeable about all the history culture and sights of Nepal. Their staff Pradip met us at Kathmandu and were very welcoming... we were very excited to be in Nepal. It’s definitely an experience to see Kathmandu , learn their history, religion, temples, and see the busy colorful scene in their market, and we had so much fun riding the rickshaw !!! The tours were excellent. In Pokhara we thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride on Phewa lake, the beautiful hike up to the Peace Stupa, witnessed the sunrise on the mountain top at Sarangkot; flew on the Ultralight for a 30 minute adventure flight getting up close to the magnificent Annapurna mountain ranges and Fish Tail mountain!!!! Just spectacular!!!!
One of the highlights of our trip to Nepal!!!!
This itinerary was perfect for us!
