SHEILA AND GORDON'S FEEDBACK:
Dear Tina and Zoe,
I cannot begin to describe how fabulous our trip was. It is just beyond words. Abbas was fantastic, and every day brought us new, indescribable sights and adventures. Most of the lodging was terrific (with the exception of Kenzani - just a little too "rough" for us) and the food was great. Highlights of room and board were Gibbs Farm and Lake Masek Tented Camp. Both were outstanding. And of course the countryside and the people and the animals were all fabulous. Thanks so much for being patient with us and for helping us plan our once-in-a-lifetime trip! Regards, Gordon

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
