We decided to organize our Safari in Tanzania with Hertebeest following some friends’ suggestion. Before taking the final decision, we checked some other safari tour operators, both local and European, but they were all more expensive (even one third more). The plan that Hartebeest proposed seemed to be good and well-balanced, so we got for it.
The organization of the tour was very good. We did a six tour safari, visiting 4 parks (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro), all extremely beautiful. The game drives basically lasted the whole day, from 8.30/9.00 until 5.00/6.00 in the evening. We saw many different scenarios and types of flora.
In addition: we had a 6-seats pick up and related driver at our complete disposal. So we could basically stop any time we wanted. Great safari and great experience too.
We stayed in Wildlife Loadges in all parks. They are all more or less equal in terms of building facilities and structure, but the level of service, the food, the dimension of rooms and the building’s general conditions varied a lot from one to the other. The best one is the one in Lake Manyara, the second the one in Lobo. The ones in Ngorongoro and Seronera were a little bit below expectations. Still, overall, considering the price we paid, against what advertised from the Lodges, we believe it was fair. Also, we had the impression that there were not many other very good opportunities at the same price.
Both Lazarus and our driver Modest were extremely nice and friendly and tried to make our experience as good as possible. Lazarus was also at our disposal to organize accommodation in other towns and to help us with transportation
We are overall very satisfied of the tour, what we saw and how we were treated.
