Predators Safari Club-any new information/opinions?

We are getting ready to book our safari and were trying to decide between 2 Tanzanian operators that seem to be very popular on this forum.

I had also requested a quote from Predators Safari Club and when they emailed me the quote, I was pleased with the price. For the exact same 12 day safari, it was lower than the quotes that I had been considering. Their vehicles are comparable to what we would have with the other companies.

This operator seems to be busy, popular and has been in business a long time, but there aren't a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor, Fodor's or Frommer's. The reviews that I have read are positive. It is just that there aren't that many and some of them are 5-6 years old.

Any information, opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated.

We used them for a 10 day safari last September. We didn't book direct but went through a UK operator (although another time I would book direct). We therefore didn't deal with them directly when making the booking etc.

However I would definitley recommend them , we had a fantastic holiday. Everything that we arranged happened exactly as planned. Our guide Bosco was great. He was very good company, a really very good driver and very knowledgeable. We spent practically all day everyday with him and by the end of the holiday he was our "friend". We learnt a lot about life in Tanzania from him as well as about the wildlife and the countryside. He never used his car radio or followed other drivers to find animals. Each day he decided where he wanted to take us and thats where we went. He said he had been doing the job for 14 years and that he knew the parks very well and where to find the animals. This meant we quite often would drive for miles hardly seeing another car and watching the animals virtually on our own which was fantasic. We are still in regular contact with him and hope to see him again when we manage to get back to Tanzania.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask me. I would not hesitate to recommend them and Bosco.
