Tanzania holiday with Planet Africa Safaris - Fantastic!

Last summer, we started planning an African safari for our family of five, for October 2013. The year before, friends had taken a trip similar to what we wanted to do, and highly recommended we use Planet Africa Safaris to help us with our plans. We did, and were extremely pleased with the level of service that they provided. We contacted them in July with our very general ideas, and after a few email exchanges and a Skype phone call, we had an itinerary that was perfect for us. Mary at Planet Africa Safaris was wonderful at putting together a plan that fit our budget, and balanced the interests of our family (we have three boys, aged 11, 13, and 15). During the planning process, we were often presented with a couple of options, with great advice on what they thought would work better. As the date of our trip approached, we sent questions by email, which were always answered promptly.

Now that we are back from our trip, with the fantastic memories of Africa, I can say without a doubt that choosing Planet Africa Safaris to help us plan our trip was a great choice! Without fail, every lodge or camp that they booked us into was top-notch. All guides, accommodations, and activities are clearly chosen with care, and an eye to making sure that their clients are comfortable and safe. We always felt we were in good hands. As an example, about half way through our trip we decided to make a change to our itinerary for our second-last day. We decided to make this change as we were about to leave for the Northern Serengeti for three days, during which time we would be out of contact. After a few emails back and forth with Mary, and because of the late hour, our new plans were not finalized before we flew out to N.S. the next morning. But we weren’t worried; Planet Africa staff had shown so much care and competence with all the details of our trip, I knew that we would be taken care of. Sure enough, on our arrival back in Lake Manyara a guide was waiting for us with a new plan confirmed, and even an optional shopping trip, as part of our revised itinerary.

I would highly recommend Planet Africa Safaris!
