Traveller Reviews

Tanzania Fly-In Tarangire, Highlands & Migration

Jack McCarthy

Our trip was everything we wanted it to be and more! The accommodations everywhere were first rate and unique. From tree top room to plantation villa, to a tent on a platform - it was great. Coming back from a full day in the Ngorongoro Crater to a freshly drawn bath for two, with a bottle of chilled wine was just one example of the pleasant surprises on the trip. All of the staff at each location were very friendly, flexible and accommodating, and proficient at what they do.
