“Just a quick note to thank you, Nicola and all the team at World Expeditions. We have just got back and had an amazing time! We saw lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, cheetahs, leopards, wildebeest, hyenas, countless birds - and thousands of flamingoes :) Everything went to plan with no hiccups.
Our amazing guide Francis was so knowledgeable about everything, and always managed to get the best spot for a photo, or spot a small bird or animal while driving. His concern for and love of the environment and the animals shone through, very much reflecting the ethos of World Expeditions.
We would really recommend to your future customers travelling as a couple in a private trip - it felt like we could see so much more than in a big group. We would also highly recommend the "diversion" to Natron - not only are there flamingoes there, but the scenery is amazing, the Camp is awesome, there's the opportunity to spend time with local Maasai guides and the drive to and from Natron is an incredible experience. A nice extra benefit is that by taking this route we entered Serengeti by the quiet Klein's Gate, which is much less busy than the main gates - within 10 minutes of entering the gate we saw dozens of elephants and zebras and a sleepy lion by the side of the road, all pretty much to ourselves.”

“Spending eight nights surrounded by wild life and its beauty was a dream come true. Tanzania is very rich in both flora and fauna. We really enjoyed our safari in every national park we've visited. Ngorongoro crater was my number one. I really recommend this trip to Tanzania, exploring its rich culture, history and nature.”
