Trip review
Tanzania

VM

loved their trip to Tanzania

We planned our Tanzania trip together with Vera at Milestone Safari. We have told her roughly what we wanted to do (Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Zanzibar) and she suggested the itinerary and accomodation that we discussed and adapted together. The Serengeti was probably the most stunning of the Parks and maybe if time had been an issue I would have skipped Lake Manyara to go straight to the Ngorongoro. (Although the accomodation in Lake Manyara was amazing- Escarpment Luxury Lodge). All the accomodations had something special about them and ending with a couple of relaxing days in Zanzibar was just perfect.

Best parts:
We really enjoyed our trip to Tanzania and found the agency (Milestone Safari) during the planning, just before departure and during the trip incredibly helpful and efficient. We also really found our guide/driver George really good. He really made sure we had the best of times, solved easily any little problem that might have arisen and always with a positive and smiling attitude. We would really recommend Milestones and George for any Tanzania trip.
Worst parts:
I guess not much as we really loved it all. The only thing is that I would recommend to get your visas before arrival as the waiting times at the airport on arrival are very long.

We are really happy that you, Steve and your kids enjoyed your time in this beautiful country! It was a real pleasure hosting you and any your family. With regards to the waiting time at the airport to get your visa, there has been a change in the procedure just recently which unfortunately has almost doubled the waiting period. This can be really annoying especially after a long flight - I totally feel you. We nowadays recommend clients to apply for their visa online prior to their trip to avoid long waiting times upon arrival. We wish you all the best for the future and should you plan to return to Tanzania or Zanzibar any time in the future please don't hesitate to get in touch! VeraSee more
