Every day with our guide, Makinda, was like a classroom experience. His knowledge of animals, birds, plants, geography and geology is very impressive. He never showed impatience, despite being asked many questions (often repeatedly).
Compared to other (company’s) vehicles that we saw, we were delighted. Ours had ample room, excellent viewing from top and sides and the ability to close windows during rain and dust.

What an amazing trip. Simply beyond words. Tanzania is a beautiful place: Animals, people, landscape, the sights, sounds, and even the smells are poa sana, which is Swahili for very cool!!! My photos don’t do the whole experience justice as there is so much more to see than just the wildlife.
I spent more time standing up than sitting down (in the Land Rovers). What a cool way to see this country! I was always comfortable – always felt safe and enjoyed the bumps as much as the smooth rides!
I’ve been telling everyone we know to contact Thomson. Every single penny we spent – every thought and concern that went into the planning and preparation – was WELL worth it. Beyond worth it.
I couldn’t possibly recommend it enough.

I used to think the train was my favorite way of transport until I stepped into Thomson’s Land Rover. I will always love/remember that feeling. I saw other safari vehicles didn’t have a roof and windows that could open and close. I am so glad ours did – and we did not have too many people in one vehicle!

The Land Rovers were a far better vehicle than the Toyota Land Cruiser that we rode in to the hot-air balloon site: You can see out of the Land Rovers when sitting down, they are much roomier, and you can walk in the aisles. I didn’t realize how important the Land Rover was in the overall experience, although I knew that Thomson Safaris knew the importance. The Land Rovers really do distinguish Thomson from the other operators on the road.
