I just wanted to let you know personally that we had an incredible time on our safari. It truly surpassed expectations – everything was wonderful – from the itinerary, the amazing wildlife seen, the logistics, the incredible guides, the food and the accommodations – all top notch.
Thank you again for all your assistance in preparing us. It was a trip of a lifetime and will not soon be forgotten.

We had a fabulous trip which exceeded all expectations. The arrangements were flawless, the accommodations were very comfortable and the food was delicious. We were struck not only by the abundance of wild animals, but also by the stunning beauty of the East African landscape. What was a particular surprise was how much we enjoyed the opportunity to meet some of the local people. We would love to come back!

Our Safari Had It All: Wildebeest Migration, Katavi and Chimps in Mahale Mountains! Private Thomson Safari Review: Vance M.
We had a great time. A very different trip from the previous two. The mix of Maasai culture and walks at Thomson’s private refuge was a great start. The job Thomson Safaris does in supporting the area is to be commended.
In the Northern Serengeti the wildebeest migration was in full swing. We were able to witness three Mara River crossings in a single day. We were witness to the largest wildlife migration on earth and could see tens of thousands of wildebeest in every direction. We also had multiple wildlife encounters, lion, zebra, elephants…we had enough time to see everything.
Katavi National Park was unusually dry for this time of year but we still had multiple viewings of elephants, lions, leopard, etc. Including elephants in our camp! We had a great time in Katavi.
What can you say about Mahale? Chimps! We were able to view chimps up close and personal on both trekking days and went fishing each afternoon. The camp was gorgeous! The trip was just like you helped us plan – different, unique and exciting.
We also had the opportunity to visit the Arusha office to see our first guide, Nasibu, who invited us to his house the following day to meet his family.

I smiled for 2 weeks straight! It was a perfect trip! Signature Thomson Safaris Review: Lynne & Paul R.
I cannot tell you how much fun we had on your safari and how perfect every aspect of the trip was coordinated. We are definitely satisfied customers! We are “talking up” Thomson Safaris to everyone that will listen.
The trip far, far exceeded our expectations and I just loved sitting back and “enjoying”, knowing that your staff would have every detail under control.
People will ask me what part of the trip I liked best, and it is hard to answer. I loved everything…the up close experience of the animals, seeing the breathtaking vistas from horizon to horizon, talking with the interesting guides, enjoying my new safari friends, eating 3 fantastic meals a day, sitting by the fire at night, walking with Herman around Gibb’s Farm, skimming over the Serengeti in a hot-air balloon, shopping at the Maasai women’s market, sleeping so soundly in the comfortable nyumbas, taking hot showers at the end of a dusty day, and even driving on the bumpy roads.
I felt like I smiled for 2 weeks straight! Thank you and the Thomsons for the great trip and the wonderful work they are doing in Tanzania. I loved everything! I feel like I have spend the last 10 days smiling at the extraordinary scenery and wildlife and laughing with my new friends. Perfect trip!

I will close my eyes and remember Africa; I think she will remember me too. Signature Thomson Safaris Review: Pat L.
As I leave this safari, the many vivid colors of Africa will stay in my mind forever. The diverse cultures, the smiling faces of the children, the multitude of animals grazing in their own habitats, the genuis welcome from the African people all make this trip unforgettable. Asante!
I cannot begin to tell you how much this trip meant to me. I lost my wonderful husband 9 years ago and this was a trip we had been planning together. I have just gotten to the point where I was able to make it without him. It truly was life changing. It helped us put things into perspective and come home knowing that even though we have had a loss, we have a beautiful life ahead of us if we just search it out.
When I am “old” I will close my eyes and remember Africa; I think she will remember me too. I have NOTHING but praise for your company and the work it is doing for the souls in Africa. I will certainly say to do it today; don’t wait until tomorrow. I would go back in a heartbeat. I give Thomson an A++++++ in all categories.
