My daughter and I booked a tour with Hezron Asanga's company, Across Tanzania.
Prior to having arrived in Africa Hezron and I corresponded extensively about the exact nature of the safari. Our expectations were met far and beyond.
We had a most wonderful experience, starting with having been met by a company working in the airport, as soon as we got off the plane, and were helped with all the paperwork, and subsequently were taken swiftly and smoothly through customs and passport control. Hezron waited for us outside the airport, and one of his drivers took us to the hotel, came to town with us and helped us with getting a sim card and other small errands.
The following morning we were picked up by our driver, the legendary Fazo - a fluent English speaker, who shared his vast knowledge of the fauna and flora of the African bush with us. His pleasant manner, sense of humor, sensitivity to our needs - all made the 6-day safari a most unique and unforgettable experience.
Hezron had booked us into lovely hotels and beautiful luxury lodges. Both my daughter and I are vegetarian, and the staff in all the hotels and lodges was alerted ahead of time and made arrangements accordingly. Everywhere the food was excellent, as was the service.
This had been a wonderful trip, well worth the expense, and we feel we made life long friends in beautiful Tanzania. We would love to come back!
