Whenever you investigate some kind of experience, be it a camp, a school, a company, a travel group etc., you always read their customer comments indicating how wonderful everything is. Because these are published by the entity hoping you will become a customer, you are always suspect when reading them. Why would any entity publish negative comments by a prior customer? In the case of Thomson, however, I will say that your customer’s comments regarding their satisfaction with their safari are either dead on or definitely understated. Whatever expectations we had about our safari were more than surpassed by our experience. In short, this is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, travel experiences our family has ever had.
Given that we have traveled throughout North America, Europe, Australia, parts of Asia etc. this is high praise indeed. To be fair, the country and people of Tanzania and the amazing wildlife had much to do with the “once in a lifetime” feel of the trip. It would be unfair, however, to diminish the impact traveling with Thomson contributed to the impact of the trip.
