We had amazing experience with this Safari. We got so excited when the 4*4 car arrived at our hotel. Abdulrazak and his colleague were very professional and experienced. They knew the best spots in Tarangire national park and where to take the best photos. They were knowledgeable and the kids enjoyed their time. Highly recommended
My all Expectations for a life time safari was Excellent and it went as i expected the Experience was Amazing.
