OK, you guys have totally spoiled me! Safari in 2009, Kilimanjaro in 2011 – you are now my gold standard for adventure travel. I just got back from 3 weeks in Patagonia (Argentina & Chile), it just wasn’t the same (camps, food, client service). I had to stop comparing this adventure to my previous trips with Thomson or drive myself crazy.
Thanks for doing things right!

The trip is one we will absolutely not forget. It was fantastic in every way. We can only say great things about all the people that touched us on behalf of Thomson Safaris.
As the trip progressed, I became more and more aware of the logistics involved with moving a family throughout Tanzania. I can honestly say that the Thomson Safari staff pulled it off without a hitch, they were available at every point, every transition was smooth and we were able to completely enjoy the experience without worrying about all the travel details.
As we spoke to people traveling with other travel companies, it became apparent that Thomson provides a superior service. Our guides, accommodations and our meals were far superior.

This was a fantastic trip with a fantastic staff. Please congratulate and commend your guides, porters, and cooks for doing such a great job. We couldn’t have done it without them! Godlove and his crew should be highly commended.
Also comparing our guides to those we saw with other groups… there is no comparison! Ours were the best! It truly was a wonderful experience for us.

The gear, single tent, and food were so beyond what I imagined. I realize that I was extremely fortunate to have climbed Kili with Thomson Safaris and that this is not the typical experience on the mountain.
I am also so thankful for the opportunity to have witnessed the work that everyone does on the mountain. I now can better understand the extent of the hard work that the mountain crew performs. I have nothing but high praises for the quality of work and care that was provided for me. Nashukuru sana (I am very grateful)!

The food was mind blowing. Lasagna, Mexican food, ugali – all of it!
