I've been planning a trip to Tanzania for quite a while and if you asked me a year ago I was certain that I would book the safari through an Tanzanian tour company. But due to the financial crisis I have become more reluctant about handing my money over to a company which I have no guarantee will be there in near future.
If i book through one of the companies in Norway, and I have found one that have first hand knowledge about Tanzania, I am guaranteed that I won't lose my money if the company files for bankruptcy.
I know about Tatotz and have an idea of which companies that are "safe" to use. But my question is how is the safari industry doing? And have any companies closed their business due to the economical situation?
